Interest in the University re-

balling," according to Dr. Donald
E. P. Smith, Chief of the Univer-
sity Reading Services.
When the program was opened
last year, 447 persons received aid,
while this year more than 550 peo-
ple will take advantage of the pro-
gram. Past students apparently
are recommending the course to
their friends, since this year there
has been a significant increase in
students who have inquired about
the program without advice from
professors or counselors, he said.

Editor Blasts Young Journalists*
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is an inter-
view with Norman E. Isaacs. promi- "Until they can straighten
nent newspaperman and managing their internal problems, they
editor of the "Louisville Times.") continue straight downhill."
By SHIRLEY KLEIN
Sitting in his unpretentious office
in the Courier-Journal and Louis-
ville Times Corporation building,
Norman E. Isaacs, managing edi-
tor of the "Louisville Times," dis-
cussed several criticisms of many
of today's young reporters.
He blasted young journalists for
having "no judgment," and "too
fancy a notion of the newspaper
business." They "don't cover stor-
ies thoroughly," and leave "unan-
swered questions." "They do bet- r
ter on features than on news
stories." "Women are all right," he
explained, "if one is not reliant'
"IF I HAVE a criticism of the1
young people today, it is only that
too many of them seem to be
thinking in terms of security than
"I simply cannot understand.
the youngster who comes into
journalism - or into anything1
else for that matter-and starts7
watching the clock his first week.
These are the people who have
put a limit on what they will do.
Don't put limits on anything-in
your Americanism, your work, or
your future," he warned.
Commenting on the completion
of Eisenlhower's first year as presi-
dent, the former AP Managing Ed-
itors' Association chief noted, "He
hasn't accomplished anything yet,
but he is trying hard."
Stevenson, he pointed out is still
"top dog" in the Democratic Par-
ty. "That's all they've got right'
now, although it is possible to
build up someone in three years."
THE HARD - hitting straight
forward newspaperman declared
that "the French have lost their
power" and "are morally corrupt."
The recent Congressional in-
vestigations of college students
and faculty members the dy-
namic journalist with iron grey
hair termed "a bunch of non-
sense." "I have nothing against
investigations. I think they are
a right and proper function of
"I do, however, challenge some
of the methods-methods which'
result in smears. rather than in
fact-finding. The people who'
would put limits on Americanism
are the very people who have con-'
fused license with liberty.
"I hate Communism for what it
has done to the human spirit-for
its murder and pillage, for its
treachery, for its crushing of the
human soul. Yet for all this, I do
not think it was any great crime
for Americans to have played
around with Communism, or even
to have joined it. I think they were
fools, but I always thought that
an American had a right to make
a fool of himself if he so pleased."
Isaacs advised, not long ago dur-
ing a journalism conference at In-
diana University, "I don't care
what it is you choose to think-
but go ahead and think it-and say
it out loud. And give other men'
the right to say what they think.

"These proposals were sub-
mitted to the Regents in May,
1953 and have been before them
since that time. It is now Feb-
ruary,'1954 and no action has
been taken in spite of the fact
that these proposals have been
characterized by the adminis-
tration as 'very fine work by the
students who drew them up.'
"On behalf of the entire stu-
dent body the Student Legisla-
ture urges the Regents to take
final action on these proposals at
their next meeting and to accept
one of the modifications that the
Student Legislature has offered."

Henry Carter Adams University
Professor of Economics. Adams
had been the department's first
From almost the beginning of1
his scholarly career he has been
internationally recognized as a
foremost expert on matters of
public regulation of business, and
particularly the regulation of rail-
roads and other forms of trans-
He has written many books and
articles, of which the outstanding
is probably his five-volume study,
"The Interstate Commerce Com-
mission," for which he was award-
ed the James Barr Ames Prize by
the Faculty of Harvard Law
AMONG the numerous recogni-
tions of his distinguished scholar-
ship have been his selection as
Henry Russel Lecturer in 1943, as
President of the American Eco-
nomics Association in 1945, and
as President of the Michigan
Academy of Science, Arts and Let--
ters in 1953.
Prof. Shar'fman's career as a,
scholar has often been inter-
rupted by service in national af-
fairs. He has intermittently serv-
ed on various national boards
and committees. Since 1936 the
professor has served periodically
as arbitrator and fact-finder in
railroad and labor dispute cases.
His forcefulness, elequence, and
the meticulous care of his prepara-
tion have always been evident in
the classroom as well. His col-
leagues marvelled that after 40

years, he still spent several hours
preparing for every class.
Generations of students have
been amazed at his sentences,
which are often of tremendously
complex structure and of unbe-
lievable length, yet always turn
out at the end to have been
beautifully constructed and clear
Serious and devoted as he has'
been in his official duties, those
that know him well like to speak
of another side of his character.
When relaxing at the University
club, or entertaining in his home,
he displays -a warmly gracious and
genial informality. Some ten years
ago he became an avid bridge fan
and rarely since has he been ab-
sent from a bridge table at the
University Club during the noon
Professor and Mrs. Sharfman
are relaxing this winter in Flori-

him expect that before long his
vigorous presence will be felt
around the University.
