Just A Thought
By Dave CalhounM
"The foundation of every state is the education of its
youth," Diogenes said centuries ago.
Wednesday this point, as well as many others on edu-
cation were driven home during the hour-long convoca-
tion speech by U. S. Supreme Court Justice William 0. 1
After it was over, a girl near me re
marked," He looked old enough to me my
marked, "He looked old enough to be my
man on the street, but when he started
talking, he changed into something like
a giant magnate that drew my attention
for every word of his speech."
This may be a little too melodrama
tic, but in essence it does describe the
speaker and his speech.
One thing was certain. Mr. Justice
Douglas didn't spare any words. He
made his Doints and quickly backed each
up with a barrage of facts and personal experiences.
To many, his views on Red China and India may have
been the most important topic discussed by the Justice.
However, to me, the continual return to the educated
American and his importance in the future, surpassed all.
The answer to many of the problems cited by Mr.
Douglas may be found in education.
During the convocation he noted the recent upsurge
In book exportation from Russia into the underdeveloped
countries of Southeast Asia. As he said, an Indian can buy
a book printed in Russia for the price of one cent. The
lowest priced book printed in the United States and dis
tributed in India is ten cents.
Continuing on the United States' lag in the linguistics
race, he said that Russia prints books for export in 68
different languages. Of these, there are 40 languages that
. aren't even taught in the UnitedJStates.
To further emphasize this lag to the audience, Doug
las continued, saying "Red China and Russia are pre
pared for export export of people."
Thousands of doctors, nurses and technicians are
sitting in Russia today "twidling their thumbs" just wait
ing for the government to send them into an underdevel
oped country. Could we do this? Not without education.
As the Justice put it, "We have arrived at a point of
world history where the fate of mankind lies in the bal
ance. We can no longer continue the status quo. We must
explore other methods such as law and diplomacy.
Education will play a vital role in the newly formed
Peace Corps and other movements of this type which will
come in time.
In order for the United States to increase its stand
ards with accord to the world competition, the people
must be willing to sacrifice. In sacrifice I mean not only
the all too important buck, but other sacrifices; the hours
of research by teachers, the hours of study by the stu
dents and the most important element, the hours of prac
Before the conservative-minded citizen starts to add
up this new tax burden, it should be stated that there are
ways to build up this area without adding new burdens
on the average citizen.
Mr. Douglas noted one example; the fifty million dol
lars worth of jet planes given to Ethiopia in 1960. Surely
some of this money could be used to a better degree on
the people of a country which is 98 illiterate.
Whatever is done in this line in the future is not as
Important as what is being done today. For this reason,
I only wish Mr. Justice Douglas could have been able to
visit and speak before our State Legislature. Perhaps,
once again the importance of education could have been
impressed upon them.

On Friday evening, three

"The Dove Descending"
and William and Mary's
"There Are Lies Like
