scholarship, commented that to

"Because of Germany's loca-
tion," he said, "intercourse both
diplomatic and economic with her
neghbors is necessary."
Studying Mechanical Engineering
Vogel, 27, studying mechanical
engineering, graduated from the
Technical University of Stuttgart.
Arriving in the United States for
the first time this August, he
speaks with only the barest trace
of an accent.
He attributes his excellent
command of the language to high
school studies and a two month
visit to England.
Growing up under the Hitler
regime, the talludark-haired stu-
dent was able to observe the con-
fusion and uncertainty that reign-
ed at the onset of the post-war
"By the time the war ended
most of the German people were
relieved. They were convinced that
defeat was imminent, and "noth-
ing remained to be defended."
Intellectual Disillusionment
Intellectual disillusionment ac-
companied the physical desolation.
"Ideals had been destroyed and
there was nothing, no one to be-
lieve in."

and women from the age of 18 to
35, in particular, were confused.
Having been reared in the ideol-
ogy of the Third Reich, they saw
their past condemned and their
future dim," the visiting student
said. Abstination from any politi-
cal association was the immediate
Younger Generation Apathetic
Apathy clung to the younger
people for at least five- years.
Then improved economic condi-
tions facilitated social contacts in
youth movements and church
groups. Through these agencies
an interest in the political life of
Germany was kindled.
Vogel, who will participate in an
ISA sponsored discussion entitled
"Guinea Pigs in Democracy?" at
7:30 p.m. tomorrow, continued
tracing the results of the Allied

and the United States lost quite a
bit of prestige," he said
"Democracy," the engineering
student remarked, "is safeguarded
in the present government by Ger-
many's temporary Constitution,
the Basis Law, which insures Civil
rights, a democratic party system,
a, more responsible Parliament, and
in general attempts to alleviate
the weakness that allowed Hitler's
assumption of power.
Orientation to Government
Equally important as the politi-
cal reforms, is the attempt to
encourage the politically shy Ger-
man to take an interest and re-
sponsibility in the governing of
his country. "The average Ger-
man," commented Vogel, "doesn't
like to be in the spotlight."
Orientation towards government
has been necessarily integrated in-
to the educational system. School
children spend several hours a
week learning how their govern-

ment works and often observing i
in action.
Germany has no roots for de
mocracy, no great national heroe,
or historically sanctioned principl
around which to rally her politica
fervor. A responsible youth awar
of the means and ends of thei
governme'nt 'may well provide th
link to secure democracy.

tatives of all houses not yet

Assembly Workshop analysis,v
Michigan State University Con-
ference and Assembly Ball were
among the topics discussed at the
Assembly Dorm Council meeting
Monday at the League.
The appropriateness of having
an Assembly Workshop at this
time of year was left open for
suggestions or criticisms from As-
sembly members.
It was agreed that the discus-
sions were excellent but better
audience participation could be
achieved by more publicity and by
extending open invitations to in-
dependent women on campus.
Some of the members thought
it was a bad time to have the
Workshop because of the strain
of final exams which linited the
number of girls who could attend.
MSU Conference
All house presidents are invited
to attend the Michigan State Uni-
versity Conference to be held Feb.
24-25. A meeting will be held
before the conference to propose
discussion topics pertinent to Uni-
versity functions and activities.
Fire hazard of candles at the
Christmas formals was one of the
topics discussed at the Board of
Governors meeting.
The Board announced that defi-
nite plans have been drawn up for
the new Womens Dorm. The length
of construction time for the Dorm
will be from 16 to 18 months.
Also getting under way are the

plans for a new Coed rooming
house. The Student Planning
Committee met with the architect
to discuss proposed construction
All independent houses have
been asked to plan house activities
for the evening of Assembly Ball.-

Sandra Marx. The rest of the
committee will be announced soon.
Orientation Leaders
Orientation leaders are needed
for second semester. If you are
interested contact Pat Mooney.
The question of replacing As-
sembly representatives by corridor
representatives was left open for
member discussion.+
It was thought that corridor
representatives are an important1
link in the chain of communica-
tion and should have more to do'
with Assembly directly. Nothing
definite was decided upon.+
