heave Them Alone?, . .
Leave us alonel ,
That is the view expressed by one of the
Independent students on campus in a recent Let
terip. The ISA, he said, is not claimed or desired
by most independents. He accuses the Greek stu
dents on campus of being ashamed of their own
Maybe, maybe not.
This student Wants nothing from the Uni
versity but the right to attend classes and to study.
OK. That is his privilege. If he thinks that ac
tivities are silly, then it is certainly his privilege
not to participate in them.
There is another side to University life that
does not come through poring over books, and
maybe spending evenings in the local beer tav
ern. Getting a university education also involves
learning to get along with people. Maybe some
people are perfectly adjusted, but most are not
A lot of University life is just a pocket edition
of life in everyday America. University activities
do help. Some of these activities are rather point
less, granted. But some of them are worth while.
In everyday life, politics goes on. Not only
do the democrats and republicans fight, but or
dinarily people are eternally polliticking. John
works hard to get Henry's job: Bill wants to be
president of his lodge.
A survey conducted by one of the nation's
leading universities showed that the people who
were leaders in campus activities were also more
likely to succeed in other lines after graduation,
Perhaps the Independent students are not in
terested in what goes on in campus politics. They
should be. For they are paying for the student
recreational facilities. They are directly affected
by the actions of student governing bodies. Then
they gripe because the results of these actions are
not what they think it should be.
In everyday life, people seem to divide them
selves into two classes: the "haves" and the
"have-nots." The "have-nots" generally want to
get into power and become the "haves." On this
campu the Greeks are the "have-most-every
things" and the Independents are the "haven't
got-muches." The Independents seem to be
happy just to leave it that way. That is their privi
lege. If that is the way they want it, then they
have no kicks coming about the ways things are
The Letterip writer says that most Indepen
dents do not want an ISA. Then what did the
results of the recent Student Council poll mean?
It showed that about three-fourths of the Inde'
pendents favor some kind of organization. Maybe
they were just kidding.
Leave them alone? OK. If that is the way they
want it. t.r.
A New G. I. Bill
It seems likely that, the United States congress
will pass a new, modified G. I. bill. The old one
expires next July.
Backers of the new bill argue this way: Mil
lions of men will have their education interrupted
by the draft. By the time they get out of the
armed services, they will be much older and pos
sibly married (Following the last war 40 per cent
of veterans who returned to campuses were mar
ied). It would be impossible for most of them to
support their families and go to college without
It is also argued that the nation needs a larger
number of well trained men. All our sciences and
technical developments depend on specialized col
lege men. If the government does not subsidize
the veteran, the nation will soon find itself lack
ing trained personnel for its industries and schools.
Opponents of the bill argue it would be nothing
but a florified scholarship program. They say far
too many would be eligible for a free educational
ride, and the government would be incapable if
financing the .project. They also point to all the
red tape which would result from the bill.
The previous G. I. bill, they say, has cost more
than $11 billion, and this figure will no doubt be
well under the cost of the new bill.
Most of the nation's educator's think the G. I.
bill has worked out very well, and they are cer
tain it was worth the cost. Carl R. Gray, jr., ad
ministration of veterans affairs, says the bill "can
well be thought of more as a benefit to the na
tion than to the individual."
The huge number of veterans who went to col
lege with G. I. benefits will now be able to repay
their country in terms of better-trained men who
can serve to greater advantage in national de
fense. As the New York Times pointed out, "It ap
pears that some form of G.I. bill will be enacted
for the new veterans. It is to be hoped that the
best features of the old bill will be retained and
the defects will be eliminated." j.w.

Female Opinions Vary
On Drafting Women Issue
By Connie Gordon
By Connie Gordon
Everyone has been mulling over the idea of
drafting women, but few pollsters have asked the
women's view on the matter. However, the Uni
versity of New Mexico did, and they discovered
that more than half of the University coeds pre
ferred the home front to the war front.
One student, an anthropology major, stated
that if her husband were taken she would rather
be drafted into the service than go home to
Mother. "Nothing," she commented, "could be
worse than going home to Mother."
Other answers ranged all the way from "ri
diculous" to very definite yesses concerning be
coming members of the armed forces.
The Kansas State Collegian believes that there
Is no premium In becoming a queen anymore.
They stated, "Ever stop to count them? Don't.
It takes too long."
They added, "Since queens are so common
place these days, a coed feels accomplished if she
manages to get through school without the honor.
The fifty per cent who aren't elected a queen or
'. attendant are flattered to think they've kept their
"It would be better to lean more to quality
Instead of quantity and thus keep our queens
from getting lost in the shuffle."
Well, it's all a matter of opinion.

Iowa State reported that during a recent convo
cation, the speaker wu introduced with these
words: "This man's work and his voice will prob

an Alaskan school, and I in turn will quote it
It seems that "there was a big appeal going
up for more milk for the smaller children. The
speaker was a large and obviously city-bred man
He had been talking for a long time and his face
was flushed with emotion. He finally came to his
crowning last line: 'Ladies and gentlemen, we
must take the bull by the horns and demand
more milk.' "

of things, BUT ! i
Another University campus has added women.
This time, it's the University of Portland. Before
this revolutionary move, lady students had been

The Beacon, Portland's student newspaper, stated,

at first The transition may be slow. There will
be new competition, but co-education is here. This
fact we cannot deny.
Hovn.rsr, they had been denying the fact for
nigh onto fifty years; that's how long their no
femme policy had been in effect.
Ah yes, I guess it is a woman's world, after
all (I think)?
Well, I must make with the "Adieu" for now.
So until next column time, "Adieu!"

ISA Head Clarifies
Dear Fellow Independent:
This letter is offered to you
in an effort to explain the pres
ent condition and future possi
bilities of the Independent Stu-
aents association. As you know,
ISA is trying to overcome its
difficulties and produce an ac
ceptable program for all inde
pendent students. We feel that
it is a vital necessity that you
as an independent actively par
ticipate in the developing and
execution of this proeram.
First we would like to quote
the purpose of the old constitu
tion. It reads as follows: "The
purpose of this organization
snail be to encourage unaniu
ated students to participate in
We felt a definite lack in the
scope and direction of this pur
pose, and so have incorporated
the following aims to facilitate
the carrying out a more accept
a. To study the personality
needs Of the Independent stu
b. To encourage participation
m the established activity pro'
gram and to provide supple
mentary program if the existing
activities are inadequate.
c. To cooperate with the Uni
versity or college administra
tion and student organizations,
d. To be alert of problems of
student welfare and to take the
initiative in alleviating any ad
e. To encourage, train, and re
ward socially responsible lead
f. To promote tolerance be
tween all groups, races and
g. To create a feeling of esprit
de corps among unaffiliated stu
Upon study of these aims it is
evident that the purpose and
scope of ISA is greatly enlarged
The present group believes that
this purpose will overcome the
Stigma that has been attached to
the organization as being pri
marily social and invading the
program of other Independent
organizations. It is our thought
that the social program for the
ISA will consist of two major
events, one in the fall and one
in the spring, and that our pro
gram now enlarged will be alert
to the problems of the Individ
ual and build a spirit of coordi
The ways in which you can
now help and support the build
ing of this program and spirit
1. File for an ISA office
submit your name, address,
phone, and office desired.
2. Back your future officers by
turning out to vote March 19
When called on, back your organ
ization financially as well as ac
tively. With this kind of support
and spirit the future possibilities
of ISA are limitless. ISA faces
the great question to be or not
to be the answer rests with
your support Let's take ISA se
riously. Independently yours,

American men are very critical
of American women as a group
this is the number one fault. In
general, a woman can find fault
with one man in particular, but
remains pretty well satisfied with
men as a group. With men it's an
other story; all women have the
same enumerable faults.
The second faul is that Ameri
can men have an always unsatis

we're wonderful; if one woman
won't the other will."
The third fault, from the con

married man or those contem

in marriage must be fifty-fifthy
to maki it a successful project.
Many men give a girl the grand
rush, marry her, then relax and
let her try to keep him happy.
Then there is the man who is
definitely the genial "party boy."
Among others in a crowd, he is al
ways happy, makes the best of
conversation and is generally a
very pleasant companion. The
picture changes however when

The mood changes, there is no

at pleasantness. The little woman
is left to draw her own conclu
