Conservatives; Liberals Ask
'What's Man's Basic Nature?'
Both the conservative and
liberal, if their philosophies
are to be anything more than
crude opinion, must ask them
selves: "What is man's essen
tial nature?"
Dr. William Reichert, assist
ant professor of political sci
ence, presented 'a nonpartisan
analysis of "Liberalism vs.
Conservatism" Tuesday aft
. ternoon In the Student Union.
Rough Principles
Said Dr Reichert, quoting
Raymond English, "Conserv
atism and liberalism are
working sets of rough princi
ples for dealing with political
He noted that in point of
time liberalism precedes con
servatism as a political phil
osophy, arising in Western
Europe during the 15th and
16th centuries.
Dr. Reichert continued that
later liberals proclaimed that
liberalism is an "attitude of
mind toward life and politics
which rests on the proposition
that freedom for the individ
ual is the highest possible hu
man good."
"If there is a single idea
which sums up the liberal
philosophy it is the belief that
human nature is essentially
good ... the liberal holds
the deep conviction that hu
man beings are capable of
rational conduct within socie
ty. Liberal Viewpoint
Reichert said the fundamen
tal liberal viewpoint is that
Athletic Grants Equal Success
For Big Eight Conference Teams
(Continued from page 1)
But, he cautions, "That
would be Utopia and could not
be reached unless everyone in
a conference agreed to t h e
terms. One school could not
give up recruiting and still ex
pect to compete in sports with
the others."
Nebraska Athletic Director
Tippy Dye is satisfied with
present conditions. "The game
is better today because of re
cruiting," he says. "We could
never go back to the previous
days, because competition for
top athletes is too great."
More Athletes in School
Dutch Lonborg, Kansas AD,
agrees that teams are better
now because, "There are
top-notch athletes able to go
to school.
"Of course, there are some
problems connected with
modern-day recruiting prac
tices, but it has helped many
fine athletes who wouldn't
have gotten an education oth
erwise," Lonborg adds.
Bebe Lee, athletic director
at Kansas State, explains that

government itself is neither
good nor bad but must be
judged according to its effect
upon the personality of the in
dividual.. "Today," he continued,
"most liberals accept the
view of empirical-collectivism,
which holds that the power of
the state should be employed
to serve the public welfare
wherever this leads to the in
creased freedom of man."
Modern, liberalism, he not
ed, envisages progress as an
inevitable aspect of mankind.
"Reform has been the pas
sion of liberalism." (
Liberal Principles
Reichert cited three funda
mental principles upon which
liberals generally agree:
1. The oppose privilege of
any kind because it stymies
the, personal development of
the individual within society.
Therefore they oppose all dif
ferences based on birth,
wealth, race, creed or sex.
2. As far as social and po
litical equality are possible,
liberals believe they should
prevail in society "freedom
is not possible where social
and political differences are
too great."
3. Freedom is essential to
the development of individual
Like the liberal, the con
servative also seeks to dis
cover "What is man's essen
tial nature?"
Dr. Reichert also divided
conservatism into three cate
gories: 1. Instinctive conservatism
he does not favor a return to
previous conditions. "It would
merely encourage under-the-table
dealing," he observes.
The question also arises re
garding out-of-state recruiting
All Big 8 schools recruit out-of-state,
but some put more
stress on it than others.

The human inclination to
cling to the known and ac
customed. " 2. Economic conservatism
the inclination to cling to one's
economic privileges.
3. The political attitude of
philosophical conservatism. '
Quoting Professor Francis
G. Wilson of the University of
Illinois, Dr; Reichert said,
"Conservative prediction has
usually rested on the basic
evil of human nature, and the
improbability of fundamental
social or moral change com
ing in a short time."
Tradition Emphasis
There is "great emphasis
placed upon tradition, institu
tions, and, authority in the po
litical writings of conserva
tives," noted Dr. Riechert.
"When conservatives face
liberals in America," said Dr.
Reichert, "the issue in ques
tion is not whether man is
basically good or evil.
"What American conserva
tives have sought to conserve
are the 18th century ideas of
individual freedom as an es
tablished tradition!"
"American liberals: on the
other hand, haye sought to re
interpret and to expand these
ideas in the light of changing
Most Americans, according
to Dr. Reichert, are primarily
dedicated to the principles of
liberalism. ,
' "Even American conserva
tives agree with these main
values, although they never
quite feel easy about the
thought of giving man his
complete freedom."
Nebraska's Dye explains,
"The backbone of your-team
has to be home state boys,
but in many cases you have
to supplement with out-of-state
material. This is espec
ially true where population
is scarce."
Missouri Athletic Direct
or Don Faurot believes it is
possible to win with home
state material, "If you get
your own good state boys."
At Kansas State, Lee says,
"The emphasis is on recruit
ing in the state. Other recruit
ing is limited to neighboring
"We feel this is the only
sound method of developing a
winning spirit."
Growth of Grants
The growth in grants-in-aid
has grown greatly since
1956-57 with most schools now
spending as much on football
as they did five years ago on
all sports.
Many questions arise when
discussing athletic recruiting
and scholarships. Among them
are: Where will it all lead?
Is there a point beyond which
it cannot go? Is it all worth
Those questions probably
will remain unanswered for
many years as proponents of
both sides debate the issues.
But one thing is certain.
The program is growing.

of the committee system,
Miss Senf added. The discus
sion was the result of last

committee system revamped.
Miss Senf said the members
evaluated the function of com

Two Amendments
A motion was made for two
amendments to be made to

Incorperates New Ideas j
The Brother-Sister program
ofPeople-to-People (PTP)has
been modified to make it eas
ier for those international
students already on campus
to meet and make friends
with University students, ac
cording to Jan Jeffery, Broth
er-Sister chairman.
The coffee hour planned
for Saturday at 3:30 p.m. in
the Student Union will be but
one of many means through
which American and interna
tional students can become
acquainted informally with
the modification that no spe
cific brothers or sisters will
be assigned to students on
campus now.
"Friendships between stu
dents on campus should grow
spontaneously and not be as
signed," said Brother-Sister
social co-chairman Tony Ras
sakh. "Thus, at the Brother-Sister
coffee hours and picnics, an
American student will be as
signed no particular interna
tional brother, but will be en
couraged to meet many stu
dents from abroad whom he
does not yet know," said Su
sie Pierce, co-chairman of
the Brother-Sister social com
mittee. "As friendships begin to
develop over coffee or at the
picnic, American students are
encouraged to plan to meet
with their- international
friends again, perhaps for
coffee in the Crib or to study
together during the week,"
said Miss Pierce.
"American and internation
al friends are encouraged to
introduce their new friends to
students they run around
with," said Rassakh, "then a
natural and sincere friend
ship can really grow."
"A new student from
abroad next fall will meet his
first American friends under
the regular Brother-S i s t e r
program," said Miss Jeffery.
"How can an American girl
get acquainted with a fellow
from another country (as by
askin,' him for coffee) with
out ieing too forward or
breaking American social
customs?" was' one question
asked at Saturday s commit
tee meeting.

What touches off the vicious vacation riots in resort
towns from coast to coast? What madness causes
the drunkenness, open immorality, violent battles
with police? What sudden mob impulse can moti
vate a crowd of 30,000 educated young men and
women into a rampage of destruction? Perhaps it's
a new way to "let off steam" ... a savage kind of
self-expression. But why are so many college
students presumably the nation's most "adult
and sophisticated young people involved? Why
do they knowingly risk their futures, even their
lives for. a few hours oi wild abandon? In the new

Speaking of the public's un
derstanding of Shakespeare
generally, Professor Bentley
said, that like most geniuses,
"he is distorted in their

spite of it."
"That quality of being dis

all right is the same for
Shakespeare as it is for all
great artists," he said.
Painter's Work
"The way people look at
Shakespeare is something
similar to the way they look
at a great painter's work,"
he said. "Perhaps they talk

has done a pair of hands in

wasn't just interested in the
hands," he said.
