THE 'PERMANENT' SOLUTION
By Virginia Robertson

by Adle AZN
IN TRYING to analyze the deluge of political promises, it is often
quite difficult to sort out the wheat from the chaff, the vote-getting
boasts of new and permanent solutions from the real possibilities of
obtaining such goals.
It's true that we're looking for the "right" solution to problems
confronting us now. As we seek world peace, we talk perennially of
"permanent" peace, but rarely do we obtain even the degree of sta-
bility in the world which marks off a long era or epoch in history.
Conditions are constantly changing, new forces are emerging to
dispel our dreams of permanency, and yet, political candidates are
constantly proposing foolproof, cure-all solutions to our problems.
Both major political parties are guilty of such boasts. How can
we tell when candidates are hiding their real intentions behind im-
practcial boasts that just "sound" good?
The fundamental error lies in our approach. First, we must re-
alize that permanence is only an illusion. What happens is this: we
reach out for a perfect and permanent solution, then, if we realistically
analyze the consequences, we wonder why we fail to achieve even a
This struggle for permanence has brought us a galaxy of pro-
posals in the international field, ranging from treaties that bind
nations in regional alliances to wider federations for world govern-
Secondly, we must make use of the tools of time, faith and a
constant effort to improve. Time gives a problem the benefit of a
rational solution. Faith, whether it be in a God, fellow mankind, or
both, helps one to continue in spite of obstacles. And the effort to
improve insures against static complacency.
Man cannot give up hoping and working for a permanent solution
to problems that beset him and still retain any purpose in his life.
But, neither can he, in reaching for the impossible, forfeit the possible.
Thus, when we try to decide which of two competent and intelli-
gent men can best carry out the job of president of our country, it
might be better to look beyond the name-calling, the impractical
boasts and "permanent" solutions. Rather, a close examination of
the personal and party ideals for which each candidate stands might
provide a good test of what he could and would do. But, such an eval-
cation will not be permanent.

in the several services about 200
students alone contributed a total
of 12000 hours last year.
The majority of patients at the
Hospital come from towns outside
Ann Arbor, leaving family and
friends behind. Although patients
receive the best of professional
care, volunteers can perfrom many
"extra" personal services.
When a student offers his serv-
ices as a volunteer to the hospi-
tal, he assumes a part not only
in giving friendly services to the
patients, but the added satisfac-
tion of understanding the hospital
itself, its many functions, prob-
lems and services.
Student volunteers are required
to give 3 hours per week for one
semester to a particular service,
About eleven services are pres-
ently organized by the Hospital,
though one of these depends on
older adults only.
As Chaplain Assistants, volun-
teers either staff Sunday Chapel
services for patients or contact
new hospital patients during the
week to inform them of these serv-
ices. Protestant, Catholic and Jew-
ish volunteers contact patients of
of their own faith.
Students may volunteer to as-
sist in amusing children in the
Often combined with other serv-
ices, the Feeding Service volun-
teers assist patients who have dif-
ficulty in feeding themselves.
Volunteers in the Hospitality
Service visit with patients on nurs-
ing units and do personal services;
for them, such as reading, writing
letters, and shopping.
In the patient's library, volun-
teers take the book and magazine
carts to the patient's bedside and
distribute magazines to the Out-
patient Clinic waiting rooms.
Volunteers also help physicall
therapists in the gymnasium and
occupational therapists in their

classrooms and escort children to

School recreation volunteers aid
the Recreation Leader to plan and
provide programs and parties for
various units and by taking the
game cart to the patient's bedside.

ing Association by helping regis-
