Once again the tubby radical takes pen in hand and creates
his action-packed political platform which Is certain to make
amends for my earth-shattering column of three weeks ago.
I offer to you, the students of St. Andrews, an alternative
known as the Regressive Coalition.
Our demands are as follows:
1. All dorms will be closed permanently. No longer will
members of the opposite sex be allowed In the dorm rooms.
2. The women’s dorms will l>e locked each evening at 9 p.m.
This Is to insure against any social relations between males
and females and will emphasize the reason people are In
3. All personnel In the Student Affairs Office will l>e dis
missed and replaced by retired high school English teachers of
the unmarried variety.
4. Chapel will be required each morning at 7 o’clock so
that students will be inspired for the rest of the day.
5. No professors will be allowed to live in the dorms. Any
retired high school English teachers left over from the Stu
dent Affairs Office applications will fill in as residence direc
6. New dorm rules will be Implemented.
a. There will be no card-playing allowed.
b. There will be no drinking allowed. The Demon Llkker
is the major cause of corruption on this campus.
c. Study hall/quiet hours will be every day from 7 p.m.
to 7 a.m. All students must observe these.
d. Men and women both will be required to sign in and out
with the residence director. No one else will have the power to
release students from the dorms.
e. Late permission will not be given to anyone for any rea
7. The Student Government will have to be revamped.
a. The President will merely be a figurehead who ad
dresses the freshmen In the Fall and has his picture in the
Student Handbook. Candidates for this office will need no plat
form; they just have to be popular.
b. The Senators will have to be popular, but obviously
not popular enough to be President. They will make rules, but
they will have no power; the Senate just needs something to do.
By accepting this platform, we will regress, right back to
where many want us--in high school.

Obviously these demands are ridiculous and are meant only
as satire on the way many people see the college student today.
I make this .. because in the past much of my writing has been
taken seriously, and Lord knows I don’t mean what I say here.
What I want to say Is, each and every student here has a com
mitment to himself and to St. Andrews and that Is to vote.
If you don’t vote keep your mouth shut next year if you don’t
like what is happening.

To the Editor of the Lance:
Many people around the coun
try have observed in the past
five months a change in at
titude, on the part of college
students, toward the United
State’s policy in Vietnam. Some
polls report that over seventy
percent of the present college
population agrees in principle
with President Nixon’s policy.
Yet what exactly is the adminis

If the Nixon Administration
were really moving towards an
end to the war, there would be
no need to attack its opponents
so ferociously. When Mr. Ag-
new offers to swap “the whole
damn zoo” of dissident youth
for one platoon of the splendid
young men he saw in Vietnam,
the best explanation is that the
Administration does not in fact
contemplate ending the war, but
rather trying to make it poli
tically tolerable. When the
meaning of this becomes under
stood on the campus and the
draft calls go all the way to
“good old safe” three hundred
and sixty five, I don’t know
whether Mr. Nixon’s “policy”
will continue to be seen as that
of a “peace maker.”

Student government this year I
is moving more into the dir.; I

idealistic or whatever-to ob 1
tain an equal voice for studenki
with faculty and adminisijj I
tlon. The issues that candidates!
are dealing with are no loi
to restricted provincial per I
sonal rights alone; they
with moral issues and free'}
doms of the individual both Ij I
side and outside the St. An-i
drews community. The;
proaches vary somewhat, bntj
the attempts at communication!
are real, and show promise for!
One approach is through t
use of consolidated pohtlcall
parties. This is an important!
advent for student organiza-|
tions because of its inherent!
strength in numbers and per-!
suasion. Through a unified front!
there is a hope that communi
cation will come with faculty I
and administration throughuai-I
fled student backing.
Another equally importaal|
approach to student govern-!
ment is to form a united stu-!
dent-faculty. It depends on the I
workability and rapport be-1
tween student leaders and stu-1
dents, and between student 1„
ders and faculty and admlnis-l
The underlying assumptions]
for each of these approaches Is I
that students have the right I
