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.
