Miss -Doris Pinkerton of MARTI PRESENTS IVY DAY ADDRESS Law Senior Discusses Points For and Against Modern University with "On Trial" as Subject "The seed of God-like power is in us still; Gods are we, heroes, if we will," quoted Lloyd Martin, of Lin coln, Law senior, in concluding his Ivy Day oration, "On Trial." His address was delivered following the inter-sorority singing contest yester day afternoon in the arena construct ed north of Administration Hall. After designating the tax-paying public as judge, Marti proceeded to give first, the accusations against the American University. Quoting Roger Babson he alleged that "higher edu cation in America is supplying the nation with sluggards, snobs, athletic morons, and amusemen t-crazy youths." College students are also supposed to be more irreligious, tar d-er-drinking and more immoral than their counterparts 30 years ago. In the eyes of the public they are time- wasters, not scholarly, and thinking more of social life than of studious activities. They are mateiialistic, going to school only to learn how to "get the coin." Much to be Said in Defense In spite of the results of University Night in Lincoln, when "we demon strated our inability to stage a de cent production," supression of stu dent magazines and threats of the legislatures to abolish first year pledging because of ill-management of fraternities, there is much to be said in defense of the college stu dent. Although they seek truth, they are not irreligious. Drinking and im morality are not nearly as rampant ud they were in the "good old days." (Continued on Page Three.)
