No. We think the loyalty of

On Education
Education does nut mean teaching people what they
do not know. It means teaching them to behave as they do
not behave. It is not teaching the youth the shapes of letters
and the tricks of numbers, and then leaving them to turn
their arithmetic to roguery, and their literature to lust. It
means, on the contrary, training them into the perfect exer
cise and kingly continence of their bodies and souls. It is
a painful, continual and difficult work to be done by kind
ness, by watching, by warning, by respect, and by praise,
but above all by example. John Ruskin

Education Not "Hogwash"
Dear Editor:
I am writing in response to the letter by Franz 11.
Penncr criticizing the curriculum wherein he questioned:
"Why, for example, must 1 spend time struggling through
chemistry when I am working for a law degree?" He also
stated: "This business about a 'well rounded education'
is pure hogwash."
Being a senior in law school, I feel that Mr. Penncr
has a completely erroneous conception of both legal train
ing and college education, This is a University, not a trade
school. Education is 'hogwash' only to those who do not
have it.
For Mr. Penner's personal benefit, being interested in
the law, I might provide him with a quote from Roscoe
Pound, former Dean of Nebraska Law School and rec
ognized, before his recent death, as one of the most noted
men in the lega-1 profession.
Dean Pound said: "But to know the law and nothing
else is not to know that law . .... To lose sight of and touch
with men and live only in t&s. law must be-lrr the end to
produce a pedant, not a lawyer." This statement was made
in 1904. Dean Pound has subsequently been reinforced by
the bar requiring a college and legal education, rather
than the old method of apprenticeship in a law office.
Good luck, Mr. Penner.

To Deepen Dimensions
Dear Editor: rrr
Concerning the letter of Steve Green questioning the
academic direction in which our university is headed, we
would like to enjoin these remarks. Our premise is that
the university is primarily set up to deepen human dimen
sions by fostering intellectual community.
It is not an impersonal Leviathan we helpless students
must submit to passively, nor ought it be a tool of special
interest groups (i.e. governmental agencies, big business,
et al.). Universities were founded not only for students but
by students, and administrators were responsible to
We educate our whole person by putting into practice
what we learn. Part of democracy is learning how we
the people can ameliorate the status quo. Obviously our
private complaints are ineffectual if not carried to their
public dimension. Therefore . we must first unite to deter
mine the basis of our common objectives and by legal
means insure their accomplishment. Even if we do not
agree with every detail of such new political groups as
SNCC, SAGE, and SDS, we must choose to involve our
selves with that group which can best articulate and
promulgate our aims.
Secondly we have the right of petition. Some students
are currently engaged, in marshalling support for under
grad discussion rooms in each department. They are
rounding up support from faculty and students by this
method. The age of apathy and isolated malcontents is
dead. It is square man. America vibrates with a new breed.

football, "They (the fans)

Hy Kenneth Tabor
We are again facing the
proposition of admitting
Communist China to the
United Nations, and the
clamor, the general hue and
cry on both sides promises
to be at least loud if n o t
long. We are facing the deci
sion again principally be
cause the question has nev
er been settle-' aye or nay.
There can be little doubt,
if one considers the varied
opinions on the matter,
that the question is a diffi
cult one. Is it because we
listen to this hue and cry
that the problem appears
difficult? This question runs
the risk of offending any
and all intellectually sophis
ticated minds. For the rec
ord, it is a temptation for
me to add my opinion to the
matter but I think there
have already been too
many opinions voiced on an
issue which is basically not
a matter of anybody's opin
ion. I wonder if those who
have expressed opin
ion on the matter have both
ered recently to read what
the U.N. Charter has to say.
Reading that document
might enlighten both sides
in this controversy. If too
many opinions is the prob
lem, the charter should be
of some help since its con
cern is not with opinions or
parties. . . its concern is
with people.
With this in mind what
follows will be a few brief
excerpts from the charter
which might have merit in
the light of today's predic
ament. The preamble states in
part that the peoples of the
United Nations, determined
to save succeeding genera

t;,vm i
tions from the scourge of
war, and for this end to
practice tolerance and live
together in peace with one
another as good neighbors,
have resolved to combine
their efforts to accomplish
these aims,
Article four of the charter
states that membership is
open to any and all other
peace-loving states which
accept the obligations of the
charter and are able to car
ry out these obligations. It
also states that if a mem
ber persistently violates the
charter, it may be expelled.
So the matter does seem
simpler. If the record of its
deeds indicates that Com
munist China is determined
to stop wars, to live in
peace as a good neighbor,
that it is respectful of the
equal rights and equal self
determination of people,
that it will fulfill its obliga
tions in good faith, settle
disputes peacefully, and will
not use force then it is en
titled to membership. If not,
membership should be de
nied. We can look to today's dis
putes in such places as
Viet Nam and India-Pakistan
and determine China's
attitude by her action and
words. This it seems would
be much easier than deter
mining whether China is a
big country representing
hundreds of millions of
people, much more to t h e
point than trying to deter
mine whether China is a big
military power, much more
honest than trying to deter
mine whether or not it would
be good for business.

er was written to help make
such decisions. Those who
are interested and the of

students on campus; they

Troubles Too
Dear Editor:
I agree with I won Jus

ever, if she thinks she's got
troubles, I would suggest
she listen to mine. I am a
mother trying to obtain my
degree in education. There
fore, four semesters of phy
sical education are requir
ed. Since no evening classes
in physical education are
offered, I must attend dur

tates my paying a b a b y
sitter $3 a week while 1
am at class.
I registered for a full m
mester of bowling, there
fore the cost is $17.50 for
16 weeks instead of t h e
$7.25 charged for the usual
eight week course. (Why
more than double the cost?
I have no answer for this.)
Since I must park on
campus, I was forced to
buya parking permit.
By the way. the only
available parking spaces
during my class time are
more than six blocks from
the Union.
The figures are these:
course registration . . .
$13.75; baby sitter ... $48;
bowling fee ... $1750;
parking permit . . .$5.
You see therefore, I am
paying $84.25 for one credit
