We, The Women—
Shall '44 Customs
Be Extended !
IN THE near future WSGA will
decide when to take freshman
customs off. Frosh are usually de
ribboned before Thanksgiving but
wear name cards for a longer per
iod. Last year Senate felt it was
necessary to prolong the green
season. With meetings being so
grudgingly attended, we wonder if
we shall have a repeat perform
ance of last year's WSGA action,
Some enthusiasm can still turn
the tide, frosh.
WITH JUNIOR Service Board
planning to entertain faculty mem
bers in the dining commons and
faculty members inviting members
of the freshman class to their
homes. professor-student relations
are hitting a campatibiilty high.
WE CAN'T say too much about
our abhorrence of egg-yodelers in
the dining rooms. Also in our hate
league are coeds who can't remem
ber to practice the etiquette rule
of saying nothing when a dish
doesn't appeal to them, and those
who must trump up excuses to
keep the competent waiters run
ning around.
IT IS A wonderful 'day to see
the Engineers get .taken over to the
tune of 76-0 (as has been pre
dicted) but since we can't we shall
yield to our temptation and 'put on
slacks. Then for those wonderful
banisters in the new library!

(Continued from page two)
and freedom of speech, both in
themselves priceless fruits of the
democracy we are fighting to pre-
It is indeed the question of free
dom of education a question
which strikes at the very heart of
democracy itself.
Tear out the heart of democracy
and what remains is but a lifeless
body like the one called France.
After all, if we are fighting for
democracy,. why begin scuttling it
before the bell rings? Why sub
stitute the "party line" of totali
tarianism for the system of an in
terchange of ideas which for more
than 150 years we have rightfully
paraded before the world as de
mocracy's greatest selling point?
True, there is danger to national
unity in letting every man have
his say. But the danger of that is
as nothing compared to the danger
of censorship of education and cen
sorship of conscience.
The Communists today would
present a dangerous menace to the
safety of America—far more dan
gerous than they really are—had
it not been for the traditional pol
icy of this country to let them-have
their say. If we had not listened to
their arguments we never would
have known what they thought of
Germany before the Nazi-Soviet
pact. And we never would have
seen the Red in their faces—as we
did when they were caught with
their pants down in August, 1939._
Let us remember, in these
troublous times, that while de
mocracy entails respect for rule
by the majority, it also entails
respect for the opinion of minor
ities. Let us remember that while
a man may be divorced from his
job 'through force; he cannot be
divorced, from his convictions ex
cept through argument and per
suasion. And let us remember,
above all else, that half-democracy
is no democracy at all..
As a Colonial sage once said:
Let us be hard-hearted patriots,
sir—but not spineless chauvinists.
