Who Will Be Queen?
Tools of Reason . . .
If our nation is to find its way out of the current con
fused and difficult times, when certain groups are attempt
ing to undermine our basic freedoms, each individual must
use the tools of reason to the best of his ability.
The American citizen must use his reason if he is to
see that there are groups who would like to seize control
of the government, and that these groups, by seizing con
trol, would destroy all of those things that we cherish.
There are certain basic freedoms which no dictatorial
group can allow. These freedoms are: freedom of worship;
freedom of the press and speech; freedom from fear; and
the freedom from want.
In the totalitarian state, the Church is banned because
it is in direct opposition to the philosophy of the controlled
state. The Church demands that the people give allegiance
to God and the state, while the state demands total al
legiance for itself.
The press, speech and radio are strictly controlled in
the welfare state because the controlling group cannot
allow any other group the privilege of telling their side
of the story. Thus, all information which comes to the
people is carefully screened so that only the government's
views are presented.
Secret police and informers are prevalent in the police
state because as has been previously said ideas contrary
to those of the leaders cannot be tolerated. Fear is the rule
in the police state rather than the exception.
The American citizen has certain responsibilities to
himself and to his government The citizen must shoulder
his part of the maintenance and operation of his govern
ment, if there is to be any hope for the survival of our way
Every person, regardless of his positionmust see that
the freedoms we cherish are not lost The college student
on his campus is responsible for his preparation for posi
tions of leadership.
Not only is the student preparing himself academic
ally for the future, but he must shoulder responsibility
while he is on the campus so he will have experience for
the future. (Reprinted from the Carthage College Indian.)

Headgear of Campus Co-eds
Set Colorful Winter Scene

set not only include the usual
headcolds and frostbitten ears.

gayly colored bandanas, but also , tn.deinc to clasT com
pletely comfortable in their snug
helmets, 'little boy caps," cro
cheted hats and "johnny caps."
Most of the campus co-eds are
replacing their old much-used
bandanas with the new, versatile
cloche-type hat called the helmet.
This hat comes in colors ranging
from the wannest, browns to the
coolest green, and may be worn
with almost any type of coat or
Fuit. Alpha Phi, JaneLe Moore,
becomingly wears her brown
helmet with her brown mouton
coat, while Jo Mellen, Phi, adds
a black helmet to carry out the
black plaid of her coat. Besides
its eye-catrhmg appeal, the
warmth of the helmet prevents

'This is the age of advertising
through our senses.
Camels have their throat test,
Philip Morris have their nose

t-mea test, and Paleighs have
their eye test.
Before any other cigaret en
ters the fray, we would like to
copyright an car and tongue test
for our new cigaret, Desire.
Out man-on-the-street pro
gram would go something like
this) j Pardon me sir, what is
your Tiame? Would you mind
trying a little test?
Now you know how bits of
loose tobacco pet in your -mouth
and how foul they taste? Well
take one of your cigarets H see
you smoke one oi the leading
brands) and chew off part of it.
That's right. Wow roll it around
your tongue. Bad taste, eh?
Chew off part of this Desire.
Ah, I see you are smiling. No
taste, eh? That's because acb
piece of tobacco in a Desire is
coated with a new deadiy acid
that .destroys all taste buds they
encounter. May I believe that
this test has convinced you to
switch to Desires?
No? Well, try our ar test.
Open your package of cigarets.
JJotice that same dull sound of
crackling paper. Now open this
package of Desires. Hear that
clinking? How different from
the old .crackling.
That clinking, sir, is the nounfi
of .coins. Yes, with each package
of Desires, you Tecehe your
purchase 7rice back.
Now isnt that proof enough
that it's time to wjtch to De
lres? Pemember folks, among
Dromedaries, they"re two to one.
"little-boy caps. Tnese caps,
copied from the cld-fashioned
lumber-jack caps, have flaps
which go up or down warming
the ears in cold weather or add
ing to the decorative crown in a
milder temperature. A button on
top, a small bill, and vivid col
ors blend to make up this casual
Perhaps you've seen the un
usual crocheted dutch caps with
the side tasseL Betty Straton,
Tri Delt, looks pretty and keeps
her head warm in a white hat
of this type. The "baby bonnet"
effect is carried out by Nancy
Klein, Delta Gamma, and Joanie
Alexander, Theta, in their "close
to the head" crocheted numbers.
A smart combination of a
beanie and a scarf, dubbed
"johnny cap," is slowly but sure
ly becoming habit forming with
the campus feminine crowd.
These caps are different but be
coming, and are made from soft
suede cloth in a variety of col
ors. The crown of the hat is
similiar to the beanie, with the
bill in front but attached to
cither side are scarf-like ends
which tie under the neck. Jo
Jen Loder, Kappa, wears a pert
green johnny-cap with her
smart-looking tan storm coat.
Snooky Coryell, Alpha Chi,
wears a "snooper," on her short
bob, which is similiar to the little-boy
caps. Kappa, Adele Cory
ell, has discarded her bandana
for a becoming hood.
Other hats such as french tarns,
beanies, and profile hats, show
that the inevitable bandana is
slowly but surely being replaced
by brighter and more becoming
head wear among campus circles.

On the Kansas State campus
the student council is backing
up a drive to play Santa Claus
to hospital patients and overseas
Their goal is to provide a gift
for each service man not able to
enjoy a normal Christmas.
The student council is urging
all campus organizations to con
tribute Christmas gifts to these

Ag Union to Hold
The Ag Union will sponsor a
new and different kind of ping
pong tournament today at 12:15

Eggers, activities director.
Anyone interested in ping-pong
is urged to go over to the Ag
Union at noon to enter the contest.

placed in a hat and the four ini
tial pairings will "fight it out" to
determine the winner.
This is the first of a proposed
series of similar events planned
by the Ag Union.
Alpha Kappa Psi
E. Ross Martin, local accoun
tant, addressed the Wednesday
meeting of Alpha Kappa Psi,
professional business fraternity.
Martin outlined the functions
and problems of a certified pub
lic accountant. He stated that the
principal assets of a public ac
countant consisted of his inde
pendence and his informed opin
ion. The most outstanding phase
of his discussion dealt with pro
jections or forcasting on future
business and real estate values.
In answer to questions concer
ning the possible opportunities in
accounting, Martin stated that
there are many possibilities of
the graduate who is willing to
face beginning hardships, for the
profession is still young.
