“Sex as we know it may soon
be dead,” quoted Dr. Lester A.
Kirkendall to his audience last
Wednesday in the Parquet Room.
A professor of Family Life at
Oregon State University, Dr. Kir
kendall chose at his lecture topic,
“The New Morality.” He gave the
above quote from LOOK maga
zine as an example represent
ing the type of thinking that is
now becoming important to us. A
second quote he gave came from
another magazine article. “The
negative, repressive approach
must be replac3d by the positive,
affirmative approach.” Today’s
thinking tin connection with mora
lity and sex) is becoming more
open and less subdued.
Dr. Kirkendall gave three dif
ferent ways of looking at moral
ity which are necessary in making
moral decisions in our age. They
are: I. We must think of morality
in a broader way than we do.
Morality and sex have come to
mean the same thing. The term
“New Morality” always suggests
sex. This type of thinking must
be changed. II. We are in trouble
because for so long we have thought
of morality as a code, that we
have lost sight of the basic moral
conception. What is the foundation
upon which moral consideration
must rest? HI. The basis of ac
ceptable authority has changed. In
the past, the church, older people
in the family, the community, etc.
dictated the moral conduct for
the young people. While theydidn’t
question the authority, they might
violate it. Now the young want
to know why and how. They don’t
accept the same authority.
“We have tended to think of
holding back sex because of the
dangers,” stated Dr. Kirkendall.
This is referred to as the “Triple
Threat”: Infection, conception and
detection. But today, since there
are ways to combat all of these,
we must decide upon what foun
dation to rest our pattern of moral
decision making for students. It
