A study of the Student Health
center conducted by the Student
Council campus improvements
committee' was reported on by
Kent Axtell at the Council's
weekly meeting Wednesday.
Specific complaints of the stu
dents regarding the service were
cited and answers to these com
plaints were given by Axtell.
The Council investigation
stemmed from an attempt to
seek an explanation for the va
According to Axtell, the com
mittee in charge of the study

tor, in order to determine what
the facilities, services, finances
and responsibilities of the center
are. The committee presented the
students' complaints at that time.
Answers to 'Gripes'
Following are some of the
"gripes" and the answers sub
mitted by Axtell:
1. Students desiring treatment
at the center have to spend too
much time waiting their turns.
Answer: There are times, ad
mittedly, when the student must
wait much longer than he wishes
to receive attention, but the same
situation exists at the office of
any doctor nowadays.
If the physical plant were larg
er and arranged more conveni
ently, efficiency could be im
proved. Future building plans
provide for such a plant, but the
temporary building will have to
2. Students are hospitalized too
often if they go to the center for
treatment and examination.
Answer: Any such fear on
the student's part results in large
part from an erroneous opinion
that may be formed by some
student who feels fte should "have
been released from his hospital

The red threat that the U. S.
faces today is not a theoretical
communism but the old ruthless
imperialism of czarist Russia mas
querading in the trappings of an
Dr. Lane Lancaster, chairman
of the University political science
department, drove this point
home in the fourth of a series of
five lectures Wednesday evening
at Love Library auditorium.
The series is sponsored by Al
pha Kappa Psi, to focus atten
tion on communism as a threat
to the American economy. The
last in the series will be given
by Gov. Val Peterson at 7:30
p.m. Wednesday, April 25.
Red Russia's political policy,
Dr. Lancaster said, is the same
old czarist drive to expand im
perial territory, the same search
for warm water ports, the old
demand for control of the Dar
danelles, and the same desire to
create a ring of buffer states and
spheres of influence.
"The ancient game," he ex
plained, "is only being played for
higher stakes. For the old em
pires have gone the German, the
Turkish, the Austrian, the British
and Russia faces a single rival,
the United States. The real of

Citizens in Danger
