A GOAL FOR COLLEGE
((Continued from Page 1)
The ]VIarch 7th edition, of Time
Alagazine had an interesting article
entitled “The Race to College.”
The sub-title read “It Takes Good
Nerves—and Good Planning.” Part
of the article, entitled “A Goal to
Work Toward,” proved most fas
cinating and most inspiring; “One
glittering example of how the uni
versities may develop is Alichigan
State’s remarkable new liberal arts
branch at Oakland [Time, Sept.
28). Completely reversing the “tech
ang ag” image of its parent insti
tution, Oakland is an avowedly
intellectual school limited to such
rigorous matters as rhetoric, Rus
sian, philosophy of science. Last
month Oakland’s first 570 fresh
men got the shock of their lives:
43% flunked in cliemistry, calculus
and economics. Nothing like this
ever happened at old M.S.U. Says
18-year-old Alike Deller: ‘It’s
rough, really rough. But I’m glad.
Some day it’s going to mean some
thing to say you graduated from
aration, steady saving, wise choos
ing, and resolution not to be stam
peded in' the rat race.”
According to the articles, the na
tion’s high schools will graduate
approximately 1,800,000 students
this June. Not all of these students
will go on to college. Time predict
ed that by 1970 the college enroll
ment might go to the 9,000,000
mark. Quite a jump!
No longer docs the high school
girl follow in her mother’s and
grandmother’s footsteps to Vassar
unless her head is twice the size
of her elder’s. In another twenty
some years (when our children will
prepare to pack for “their home
away from home”), the Vassar
mother’s daughter will have to have
a body made up completely of cere
brums in; order to attend her
mother’s Alma Alater.
The camps about North Caro
lina are also attracting a great deal
of the girls. Chief Alarshal Cooper
and Atkinson will be counseling
the water sports at Green Cove
Camp. Leslie Redding’s working at
Camp Yonahlosse, and Anna Cay
Henny will be at Ton-a-Wandah.
Last, but not least. Gay Davis will
be found at Camp Sea Gull between
trips to Wrightsville, Blowing Rock,

work toward. College should mean
much, and one that does can be

der the able direction of Betty Lat-

jiortrayed in two scenes, one the
Old Student-New Student reception
and the other a room in a dormi

the recejition with an original poem
dejiicting life at St. Mary's in the
future with the beat generation
dominating the scene. In the second
scene our dreams of luxurious dor
