By CAROL PRINS
An avid interest in anything
from SGC to sailing a C-boat
characterizes peppy, brown-eyed
Georgianna McLean, director of
student activities at Lane Hall.
Miss McLean claims residence
in at least five states but really
considers Columbus, Ohio, as her
home. The twenty-three year old
political science major began her
undergraduate work at Macalest-
er College in Minnesota, later
transferring to the University of
Wisconsin for a summer of studies.
Studied At Sorbonne
Continuing her education at the
Sorbonne, Miss McLean worked
on th~e European Defense Council
planning in its early stages.

Now working on the thesis for
her master's degree at Ohio State
University, Miss McLean hopes to
enter divinity school in September
Most of Miss McLean's work as
student director is divided be-
tween work in the area of Lane
Hall-University Relations and in
the World University Service. The
WUS is an international student
organization representing thirty-
eight nations. Aiding internation-
al education and fund-raising are
its main projects. It is sponsored
by the Protestant, Catholic and
Jewish faith groups and the Na-
tional Students Association.
SGC of Vital Interest
The work of the Student Gov-
ernment Council is of vital in-
terest to the student director. She
believes that the group should be
an action organization w.which
handles all campus problems.
"Lots of areas can be handled by
a group of mature student lead-
ers," Miss McLean pointed out.
Directs student activities at Lane Hall
"For example, the action being
taken at the present time on de-
ferred rushing is a good start in
making the student government
group a responsible and respected
organization on campus."
Spoek Claims Modern Parents
Not Educated in Child Care
NEW YORK (P)-The hero of
the American nursery, Dr. Benja-
min Spock, says the trouble with
parents is they are not educated-_-
to be parents, that is.
"Academic education instills in
young women (and men too) that
a career is more important than a
family," the widely known peria-
trician says. "Young people grad-
uate with an absorbing philosophy
that all good is accomplished out-
'side the home."
The author of the perennial best
seller "Baby and Child Care" sug-
gested in an interview:
"Why not connect nursery
schools with high schools and col-
leges, making students aware of
their primary role in life and
getting them in the mood for it by
everyday contact with children?
As it is now the spirit of education
tends to divorce them from the
Dr. Spock, a visiting professor
at Western Reserve University,
Cleveland, Ohio, has just started
a Sunday afternoon TV program
for mothers (NBC 3-3:30). A tall,
pleasant, bespectacled man, he
says the joy of life should be in
doing things - not just reading
"All knowledge," he contends,
"gets in the way of easy doing, one
reason why it is difficult for a
nurse, pediatrician or psychologist
to become an easy-going parent.
Dr. Spock maintains there is no
substitute for motherly love in
the home and adds:
"The working mother might find
excuses for maintaining a career-
more money, bigger house and car,
private schools for the youngsters
-all things her children can do
without in exchange for her devo-
tion at home. But these are not
the real reasons she works any-
way. They've been schooled to
work and it is emotionally essen-
tial to them."
"Easy does it" should be the
rule of thumb in child-bearing,
says the doctor, "But Americans
cannot accept child-raising tradi-
tions the way Europeans do. We
see-saw our beliefs because there
are so many theories, shifts and
technical advances that we are
thrown off balance.' We rely on
books, and when the books change
we go along."
It is still important to thwart
spoiling, Spock says, and many
working mothers spoil because
they have a feeling of guilt.
Old directories will be picked up
when the new ones are delivered.
Miss McLean expressed the hope
that Lane Hall and the Student
Religious Association could fur-
ther its activities and become a
campus group of major import-
ance like SGC. She indicated a
proposed change inthe structure
of the SRA similar to the change
of the Student Legislature to SGC
as an incentative in increasing
the importance of the SRA and
Changes in the structure are
hoped to promote participation in
activities of the organization and
classify its functions and respons-
ibilities. Miss McLean men'tioned
the importance of the role of re-
ligion in the state university.
"To often religion is concerned
with one particular church or de-
nomination and not enough em-
phasis is put on a whole under-
standing of religious life."
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (IP)-Dr.-
Hermann J. Muller, Indiana Uni-
versity"s Nobel Prize-winning gen-
ticist, says we're headed for a
"Utopia of inferiority" in which
everyone will spend his leisure time
nursing his ailments.
In an article in Scientific Amer-
ican, Dr. Muller said the threat to
future generations from H-bomb
fallout may be no greater than the
heredity dangers from some other
"hazards added by civilization."
"Those who are relatively heav-
ily loaded with genetic defects
would consider it their obligation
... to refrain from transmitting
their genes, except when they also
possessed genes of such unusual
value that the gain for the de-
scendants was likely to outweight
the loss," Dr. Muller said.
Dr. "Muller noted that modern
medicine and technology keep
alive many persons who once would
have died of inherited defects be-
fore they became old enough to
"It is probably a considerable
understatement to say that half
of the detrimental genes, which
under primitive conditions would
havemet genetic extinction, today
survive and are passed on," he
Dr. Muller was one of the first

bestow upon us."
