Last weekend brought news of the tragic crash of two Urge air
liners. A University student was among those presumed dead on one
of the planes. This fact, with its stark reality, points up a fact which
the Air Age Education Workshop has been presenting the past week
t the University. We are living in an air age.
A few years ago, air crashes rarely involved anyone we knew.
Flying was more or less confined to the wealthy, or businessmen with
more money than time. Today, everyone flies.
The recent crash points up another fact which heretofore bad been
largely ignored except by a few aviation experts. That is, that the
air lanes are becoming crowded. This fact, now given mute testi
mony, can no longer be Ignored. No doubt the problem -sill be given
consideration in Congress before too many months have passed.
In this air age, everyone has the responsibility to be inform!.
More and more, air problems are going to come to the fore. The day
is not long in the future when the highway and traffic problem may
well be dwarfed by the problems of the air.
Summer School students at the University are being gives a won
derful opportunity to become informed about this air age we live in.
Dr. John Furbay, who visited the campus last week, por ted out that
the University was one of the- pioneers in the field of air age edu
cation, and that the program here is one of the best in the country.
Feresigbted students will take advantage of this opportunity to ae-j
quaint themselves with the problems of living in this air age. No longer
is it something ia the future; something for the wealthy, or for the
experts. The problems of the air age affect everyone of vs. As citi
zens, these are the problems wnicn we can psy a pan in sojvmg tn
In aeronautics, in foreign relations, in defense, in transportation,
the problems of aviation are becoming the problems of each and
every one of vs.
Let this seemingly senseless loss of life serve a useful purpose by
pointing lip to bs our responsibility which we must assume of educating
ourself as citizens of the air age which is upon vs.
Parking has been a problem at the University for many years.
Short of a major innovation, it will probably Jontinpe to be a problem
for many years la come.
But right now there is an additional problem regarding parking.
.Since parking stickers are not required during" the summer, cars
parked in the lots are not being ticketed. This has resulted in cars
being parked with no regard to the stall lines.
In consequence, one car takes up space intended for two, and Jhere
are Sewer spaces. The lines are, clearly marked and fee stalls are
wide enough to give ample space. AH that is required to increase the i
that wRrvone nark in the snaces wrorided.
A look at any of Jbe parking kits about 10 am, w2I snow the
existing situation. There are a great many partial spaces not quite
wide enough for a car. One car improperly parked often throws the
whole row out of kilter.
So, play square, park straight..

From The Editor:
Indonesian President Sutarncfs visit in the United
States and his .apparent pleasure with the country and its
political philosophical baas indicates hope for democracy
in one of the world's most critical areas.
The Far Eastern area is one of the focal points in
the battle for men's minds between Russian commnnism
and Western democracy. Recently freed from imperi
alists, Indonesia and other far eastern republics are
strangling against tremendous odds to establish and
maintain an independent state,
They fear Western attempts to aid them may be an
attempt to regain portions' of lost control over their
economies. The Russians have made tactful offers of
badly needed industrial aid and have not yet tried to
interfere directly in internal matters. It is almost certain
.such interference will come in time, however bow obvious
this is to Par Eastern leaders is debatable.
The fact remains the Indonesia's leader seemed well
pleased with the America political system and wished to
talk aid terms.
Perhaps one chance for ultimate victory in the
nebulous philosophical battle for men's minds in the Far
East is to continue extending leaders invitations to visit
this country. Perhaps the old proverb that seeing is be
lieving will prove accurate in a serious situation. -J.B.

reason for this may be Sound in
an excerpt rom one such notice
from a baby buttle manufacturer.
The item was a comparison study
of various types of robber aipples.
It ontidned such detailed and in
valuable information as the fol
lowing. "A Cenoo-Hyvac vacuum punrp
was attached to our laboratory
manometer for measuring inches
of mercury displacement when
drawing air or bqrnd through a
perforated nipple. The machine
displaced inch of mercury when
empty. It wac attached to displace
one inch of mercury with a per
forated nipple attached. This be

To. get serious for a moment,'
elsewhere in the paper there is an
announcement of a '"Friday Inter-1
national Luncheon." The notice, if,
it was read at all, was probably!
passed off by most students as
something which applied to some
body else. i
This as not so, neither for stu
