Sally Rand, KKK Blasted
By Embittered Students.

The nation's campuses were
teeming with protests last week as
embittered students blasted every-
thing from the Ku Klux Klan to
fan-dancer Sally Rand.
* * *
sity the Interracial Club bitterly
assailed the defacement of their
posters by what were referred to
as Ku Klux Klan sympathizers.+
The posters, announcing a debate'
on "Unsegregated Housing," were
burned with cigarettes and mark-
ed with symbols ofsthe KKK.
One sign was also scrawled
with a special symbol represent-
ing Gerald L. K. Smith's Chris-
tian Nationalist organization.+

The publicity director of the
Interracial Club said the "act
was beneath the dignity and
toleration of the student body."
In the East at Harvard Univer-
sity, fan-dancer Sally Rand set-
tled down to a serious speech on
class. But apparently the impas-
sioned freshmen preferred a little
excitement, for Miss Rand's speech
was greeted by apathy, pennies,
and a few cat-calls and boos.
The first pennies fell on the

"Communism cannot be contained

rebel organization was formed on
the Florida State University cam-
pus - WRTPTBSUTRP. The al-
phabetic maze is the motto and
name for this clique: We Refuse
To Patronize Tallahassee Barber
Shops Until They Reduce Prices.
Spokesmen for the organiza-
tion indicated that as soon as
the club's treasury was suffi-
ciently large, the club would
hire its own barber.
At Valparaiso University in In-
diana, a student editorialist de-
manded that the campus student
legislature be done away with.
The recalcitrant writer lashed
out at the so-called "do-nothing"
student legislature, and among
other things, emphasized that the
group wasn't doing a damn thing.
"Let's kill it," he proposed.
AND AT Pennsylvania State Col-
lege, 500 cheering seniors held an
informal caucus and demanded
that final examinations for sen-
iors be done away with.
But Students weren't the only
ones rebelling. At the University
of Minnesota, an alumnus, who
referred to himself as an athe-
ist, is in the process of bringing
suit against the university be-
cause of its aid to religious
Frank C. Hughes, the militant
atheist, says that after he drives
religion out of public education,
he will seek to oust all chaplains
from the armed forces, legislative
bodies, and other tax-supported
agencies, and ban the Bible from
U.S. mail.

ON THE LIGHTER side, the
University of Illinois discovered
that one of its deceased profes-
sors, who had earned on the aver-

stock and bond holder in com-
panies all over the country.
