Ruth Polls
by Ruth Lenkoskl
Since there is deep concern every
where over the present world
crisis, this article is devoted to the
airing of various opinions expres
sed by Salem people in answer to
the question: Do you agree with
United States’ present policy of
spending a tremendous sum of
money on armaments program and
comparatively little on a peace
program ? The following are some
Salem views.
Mary Faith Carson “No. If we
spent as much money on making
peace as we have spent on making
war, we would be a lot better off.”
Betty Griffin “Yes. I certainly
do. I don’t think the next war will
be an atomic war but a war of air
power, therefore we should be pre
pared for war.”
Martha Scott “I think we spend
too much on arms, yet we
shouldn’t disarm completely. I agree
with the World Federalists.”
Ann Pleasants “Yes, I think we
should continue the extensive
armaments program. The United
States would be foolish to cut arms
now that the Russians have the
atomic bomb.”
Vicki Hamilton “The money spent
on arms should be spent on re
building Europe. We should try
to gain peace by good will.”
Dot Massey “No, arms are obso
Betty Beal “The money spent on
arms should be spent for more
peaceful purposes.”
Sis Honeycutt “I think we should
have arm reserves not an extremely
great program.”
Ann Mosely “I think that the
more money we spend on peace
the more peace we’ll have. This
talk of war, if carried far enough,
will bring us to war.”
Roslyn Fogel “I think we should
strive for a happy medium in our
efforts tov/ard war and peace.”

or dances out-of-town except over

this will be our sophomore slogan.
Thanks to the cooperation of the

There seems to be quite some
opposition in the Freshman Class.
This is the class which we thought
we might turn our project over to

Leahy sings this very song after
