By Student Opinion Surveys
AUSTIN, Tex., Nov. 14.—Unlike
U. S. publ;c opinior, majority sen

day holds that it is more import
ant for the United States to try to
keep out of war than to help Eng
land even at the risk of becoming
Simultaneouoly ovcr the entire
nation. Student Opinion Surveys
of America has sent its interview
ers to query all types of students
,on large and small campuses, pre
senting to them a problem vital to
American youth, a question many
times discussed in a thousand dor
mitory and boarding house bull
session. With the cooperation
of The Daily Colleg:an and scores
of other newspaper members, the
Surveys has gathered and tabulat
ed these opinions by means of
scientific sampling methods. Here
are the results:
Students were asked which of
the two following things they
thought was more important for
the U. S. to try to dc. Their an
swers, in percentages, are given
after each statements—.
Keep the U. S. out of war .55%
Help England, even at the
risk of getting into the war 45%
This is not what their elders
think. A Gallup poll recently
pointed out that the majority of
Americans believe the British are
holding our first line of defense
and helping them is more import
ant than merely trying, to steer
away from the conflict.
Students, however, have repeat
edly.shown their tendency toward
isolationism and their strong de
sire to avoid another war. For two
years the Surveys has been gaug

of the reaper in 1831, followed by
the thresher in 1834, the steel plow
in 1837, and the mower in 1858.
The first steam tractor was made
in 1849, he said, but like the first
tractors powered by internal corn
