It is somewhat nearsighted to think that Students with enough ability to pass a stiff aptitude test would do the nation more good In the service than In university. The house amended the draft bill to give local boards the test results end the students scholas tic standing and let them have linal say on de ferment The members of the local draft boards re all conscientious citlrens who are trying to help their country. But they are not necessarily en perls on education. There is no reason to ex pect them to make better decisions on educa tional deferment than the universities. Educa tion Is a business. No business man would let a layman make key decisions for him, so why let the draft boards decide which of our young men should spend the next four years In school and which should spend them In a battlefield. These are decisions which Involve the future cf human beings. No decision could be more im portant to the Individual of draft age than one Rag Congratulates . . NEW" CHEERLEADERS for their appoint ment to one of the University's vital organs of spirit Also congrats are due members of the Veil Squad Advisory board for their decision to Include coeds in next year's group.

Certainly this Is an unpopular task likely to attract, cynical criticism, "tot it prows that the Council is still looking cut for student interests.

AG EXEC BOARD for their recent action on pos sible constitution changes allowing for represen tation cf all authorized Ag organizations on the board, n well as proportional representation of men end women. STUDENT UNION for their attempt to bring well-known entertainers to the campus once or twice each year. An enthusiastic student crowd at the Coliseum attending the Duke Ellington concert proves that it is appreciated. Excellent performances have been witnessed in ether Union -sponsored events like the Sadler's The Iowa State Daily reports that it's election lime at Iowa State. The Ballyrot column reports new party on campus; it "the new splash in Campus politics! The Cocktayl Party. Here Is the Cocktayl Party's platform: 1. Ve think that Communists are simply liorrid -.-. "X We stoutly maintain that war is rot nice.'" ' 3. We think thr.i sin is wrong sometimes). t. We think that Dairy Industry at I.S.C should be converted to a brewery.'" 5.

If they had given educators the Job or put educators on the boards, it would make the men affected a lot more happy. It is bad enough to leave home and friends to serve in the army, but when you are told by a group of men who are not qualified to make the decision. It makes a bad thing worse. There have been complaints that deferment on the basis of IQ would be discriminatory. This cannot be denied but it can be explained and defended. Deferment in itself admits in equality. No attempt is made to defend the scho lastic deferment plan because it is democratic, but a very definite attempt is made to defend It because It will help assure the continuance of democratic institutions. We more sure of winning a future war if we pui the educational system we have built to work on our side. If the use of this educational system necessitates the deferment because he does not meet certain scholastic standards than it is to defer him be cause of physical deficiencies. The United Stales must see that In a complex modern society education is the only real defense against totalitarian brute force. d.p. Wells baiiet last, fall and Stan Kenton concert last spring.

Clocks on the campus are sel dom synchronized with central standard time. For the past week the clocks have been almost ex actly three minutes fast Over a period of several months the clocks may be either fast or slow by as much as five minutes. The reason for this is that the University power plant does not hold an electric power frequency of exactly 60 cvcles at all times, i Closer frequency control is a pos- sible solution but might be ex- pensive. An alternative would be to reset the clocks periodically, perhaps weekly. In this way the master bell clock and the caril lion tower clock could be regu lated by comparison with West ern Union or radio, and all other clocks could be reset by the cu todians of the buildings. If this plan were put into practice all personal and University activities of the students and faculty would be done using the same standard time. It is a possibility that each of 6000 students may have been three minutes late on each of the class days of the past week. That is 6,000 students time 3 minutes times S days which equals 90,000 minutes or 1500 hours of class time wasted because of the dif ference between central standard time and the University standard time. The return n the investment of a few hours of time by the custodians and power plant oper ators each week makes such regulation well worlh while. Nolan T. Jones.

NU Budget May Increase The University may get $1,500,. 000 more tax dollars than was proposed in Governor Peterson's 1951-53 state budget The Legislature's Budget Com mittee has decided tentatively to recommend the increase. This would give the school a tax dollar budget of $12,500,000 for the two years starting July 1, which would be an increase of $4,500, 000, or 56 per cent over the cur rent appropriation from the tax supported state general fund. The increase would give the University a total 1951-53 oper ating budget of about $23,700,000 including money from all sources tax dollars, student fees, fed eral funds and "auxiliary enter prises" like athletics and stu dent cafeterias.
