Well, the St. Andrews' Activists were out yesterday, for the
first time all year.
It seems we had a Marine man on campus talking about the
Marines. This didn’t set too well with the Activists, so they put
up posters, played music and talked.
Heard that the Marine man took a little wind out of the Acti
vists’ saUs when he told them he was against war.
But they still played their music, kept their posters up and
still talked.
Why, that’s the most active the Activists have been all year.
The food at the cafeteria has been on the better side lately—
there was no other way for it to go.
But I still cringe a little when I eat there.
The other day I got some chocolate chip cookies and found a
nut in one of them.
Not your everyday pecan-type nut, no, this one was made out of
steel and is used somehow with bolts.
Thought maybe I had won some kind of prize, like new teeth.
The Senate has been doing some talking about what to do about
the immediate problem of bicycles on campus.
I have a suggestion concerning what they can do with those
bikes. But this is a family newspaper, or something tame like
One cure for the problem is to limit bike riding to certain
hours. For instance, if one wishes to ride his bike to class, he
may leave this side of campus at 6 a,m, and return at 11 p,m.
If this idea is not popular, try this one on for size. All bike
riders will have to use the road around the lake to go to class.
It’s not that I hate bike riders. Some of my best friends ride
bikes. But in order to protect myself, I’m going to start wearing
a Civil Defense helmet and traveling around on roller skates.
It’ll be the match of the century.
Good Ole progressive St. Andrews, always keeping up with the
times. You must admit that we have some very innovative educa
tional ideas floating around here. I mean where else do they give
S-plus, S, S-minus, and U grades?
Just watch, some smart guy will say “in the first grade.”
Doesn’t he know we are in college.
Being chosen to Who’s Who is a big honor and everything, it’s
just that I’d like to know what’s Who’s Who?
Job - Recruiter Policy
Neglected By Authorities
Yesterday there was a military recruiter on campus. For
those who did not see him he set up a table in front of the
trophy case in the student center. Shortly there-after, anti-war
signs reading, “War is good business—invest your son,” and
were posted and anti-war songs were played, such as those of
Jefferson Airplane and Bob Dylan. The recruiter was asked
such pertinent questions as, “Do you go to church on Sunday?”
Just as there were mixed feelings over the recruiter so
were there mixed feelings about the demonstrators. After all
what was accomplished? Nothing; the recruiters views were
not changed, the demonstrator’s views remained unaltered and
bystanders maintained generally hostile feelings toward’the
demonstrators due to the apparent absence of constructive
argument and exchange of ideas.
Even more apparent was the inefficiency of administrative
decision-making and implementation. The question of recruit
ers was brought up shortly after Kent State and a policy was
finalized by the faculty. Senate, and supposedly the President
last fall. The jist of the finalized draft was the military re
cruiters should have no additional privileges than other job
recruiters, and should therefore be placed in the conference
room. Apparently the adopted policy was then filed or misplac
ed. In any event it was not made available to the job placement
In the future, to avoid further inconveniences and affronts
to community members, it might be advisable to enact policies
that have been made.

Not Taken By All Faculty

Contributors to the issue;
Dear Editor;
It has been brought to my
attention by the members of
the Code of Responsibility Im-
plementation Committee that
some further clarification is
needed on Dr. Donald Barnes
proposal concerning open dorm
hours. His recommendation,
presented to the Student Life
Committee at their meeting the
first week of school, was that
dormitories be open for visi
tation from 7 to 9 p.m. on
Wednesdays and Sundays, and
from 8 to 11 p.m. on Fridays and
Saturdays. Dr. Barnes pre
sented this proposal, and his
reasons and justifications for it,
in a six-page report which was
circulated among the members
NSF To Revise

National Research Council has
been called upon again to advise
the National Science Foundation

of the committee, and discus
sed at that meeting. No speci
fic action was taken at that
time, and as the student body
well knows, that proposal has
been an item of controversy
ever since.
It is true that Dr. Barnes
sincerely believes in the mo
ral validty of his proposal. How
ever, it must be emphasized
that this is the considered opi
nion of one man, but by no
means a concensus of faculty
opinion. The faculty has been
charged by the trustees with
the task of conducting an in
vestigation of the open dorm
situation, but as yet no offi
cial discussion of the situa
tion has taken place in faculty
meetings, and as yet no official
opinion has been formed. Nor
even has Dr. Barnes’ report
been circulated to all the fa
The students are hereby re
minded to respect the right of
a man to express an opinion,
and to realize that, while he
has some support, he also has
some opposition — wherein lies
the hope for support for out
side of the issue. However,

Action Needed About SA
Health Center Problems
Editor —
Concerning the St. Andrews
medical services, I am con
stantly amazed at the continual
uncovering of individual cases
in which adequate treatment has
apparently not been received,
Dave Mills received a “sprain
ed thumb” his freshman year;
it was x-rayed and diagnosed
as the above. Three years later,
after finding his thumb con
stantly resprained, he has had
it rechecked and has found
that it has been broken all the
time. Permanent adverse ef
fects have resulted not to men
tion the pain that has continued.
Was this a mistake? Perhaps it
was and we are all allowed a
few mistakes in our lives. But
when a person in a professional
position makes such serious
errors frequently, then one
must begin to question his use
fulness to the community. Has
this situation arisen with the
campus doctors? Of course no
individual student Is In a posi
tion to judge. But when one
learns that a student’s hepatl-
tas has been diagnosed as the
flu by one of the campus doc
tors, that two student’s kidney
infections have been neglected
to the point of danger, that
several minor ailments have
been treated with aspirin and
have not been cured untU an
other doctor has been consult
ed (at which point the aliments
were easily relieved) then one
begins to question the quality
of the medical services. St.
Andrews students receive.
These examples are only a few
instances that tend to point to
the presence of Inadequate
If one accepts the fact that
SA medical treatment Is In
adequate, then one begins to
look for a solution to the pro
blem. Have steps been taken
by the admlnstratlon? Much has
been discussed (a meeting with
the A.M.A, has taken place)
but according to Mr. Urle, no
action has been taken. There
fore, I suggest that the Senate
and the administration should
both take action to determine
more exactly the seriousness
of the problems and to then
move toward a workable solu
tion. Regardless of the course
of action taken, it seems ob-
