Editor Courier:
The position of the Stanford univer
sity rebels, is a protest against the in
terference and influence of an ignorant
(in the scientific sense) and emotional
woman rather than a strike for lehrfrei
heit. As to freedom of teachers, en
dowed institutions, permit more than
state institutions, because the larger
and older schools have been gradupted
from the kindergarten class and long
ago cast off the political and theological
swaddling clothes which still retard
freedom of movement in state institu
tions. There is incomparably mora
freedom at Harvard than at the state
agricultural school of Massachusetts, or
in our public schools. Whether you
like it or not, you can not deny that
church and politics are dead weight on
Btate institutions and that the standard
of fitness is mediocre respectability
rather than intellectuality which is gen
erally considered disreputable. Being a
disreputable of disreputable?, defiant of
ail post hoc considerations, free from
piety, a hater of sham and despising re
spectability, I am a defender of unlim
ited freedom of speech in public institu
tions. Commercialism is the' greatest
advecate of freedom, free speech compe
tition etc. Free competition in the
business world is what free expression is
.to teachers. What 6ort of a man is it,
.that wants protection and fears compe
tition? The world would lag behind its
present accomplishment, if free speech
had been squelched, when Galileo an
nounced his conclusions, one man dgainst
the world. We now condemn the world
as it was then and build monuments to
Galileo. See our own vindictiven'ees to the
modern Galileoe and Darwins! Only now,
there are more thinkers and more, and
larger means of discussion. The weeds
of ignorance are cleared away from truth
more rapidly.
