Gray Says Students Are
Essential As A Group
In Survival Of America
Speaks At
GM Week
President Gordon Gray last
night said the students who are
now attending and will attend in
the future both public and pri
vate institutions of higher learn
ing "need to be impressed with
their future importance as a group
in the survival of American so
, ciety."
A group of only twenty-five stu
dents heard President Gray.
Speaking to students in , the
Main Lounge of Graham Memorial
on the topic, "The University and
Its Responsibilities," President
Gray said the "great bulk" of
ever increasing number of col
lege and university students "no
longer comes from a rural, prov
incial America, but, rather, from
an urban and semi-urban Ameri
ca, across which all the forces
of, the modern 20th century
world play freely. I believe that
it is accurate and fair to say, also,"
he continued, "that a substantial
part of our students come to col
lege, not through any particularly
strong desire for a college edu
cation ..." .
President Gray pointed out that
this situation ,"is somewhat dif
t fercnt from that on which, by and
large, higher education in Ameri
ca " has developed." He said the
country's- universities and colleges
have had as one of their main
functions in the past to "pierce
the provincial coats", of the "re
latively small proportion of our
young people" who entered such
institutions with a "positive de
sire" for learning.
In pointing out the new function
which has been placed on insti
tutions ofJ learning, President
Gray suggested "we owe this gen
eration of x students we are now
receiving a measure of stability. . .
I do not. refer to the stability of
arrested development," he ex
plained. "I refer to the stability
that proceeds from a feeling on
the part of the student that what
he is doing is worthwhile, not only
to himself, but to the total pic
ture of the life in which he lives
nd will continue to live. Nor do
I refer to a stability in which
questions may not be asked and
answers sought along any road
tha't leads to the source," said
President Gray.
"We are no longer producing
a .relatively small minority, but
a Tnajor, measurable component
ofour American society," he said.
". . . we are in a real sense cre
ating not only the leaders of
the future, but the near average
man of the futuer.
"To put this into quite stark
terms, should H-bombs devastate
our existing order of things, these
people will be a major portion of
those who do, or do not, survive
and have, or have not, the moral
purpose and courage to put the
pieces back together."
President Gray said that if the
colleges and universities be
come "convinced" of their new
responsibility, he 'believes that
they "may be on the road to two
objectives. First, we may be able
to communicate to the student a
sense of moral order, and he to
receive it.
Second,' said President Gray,
"I refer to the communication of
an awareness of the fact that
survival is once again a relevant
issue in American society." Jle
explained that he referred not
only to the "danger from nuclear
weapons," but also "to survival of
the personality; of the family and
Of the community in a world that
Often seriously seems to inter
fere with their full development."

23rd birthday.' - '

Rev. Maurice Kidder opened the
first session of the Leadership
Training Program by discussing the
stereotypes necessary . for good
leaders yesterday.
"The first sterotype Spaghetti
Leadership can't be pushed, it
has to be pulled," said Reverend
Kidder. It stays ahead of the fol
lowers and beckons them on, he
said. This is not always best when
it gives the feeling that those who
are behind are dead weight The
motto for a job is to keep the
job bigger than ourselves, said
the speaker. "The secret of the
quiet operator is to get the job
done without concern for where
credit for the job is going," Rev.
Kidder added.
Another sterotype is "Personali
ty Leadership" which takes every
one into account except those who
are to be led, according to Rever
end Kidder. The scene has to be
set just right t0 do the job, he
said. A motto for avoiding ' this
stereotype is, "If the learner ean
not perform, the instructor has
not taught," said Reverend Kidder.
Many times we go through the
motions and expect success to fol
low but this does not always work,
he , added. It takes a lot of in
dividual work on all potentials, he
said. The leaders have to be able
to show the men at the bottom how

and concern for the followers is
most necessary to make sure that

An Intellectual Jaunt
Dr. Godfrey said The Public
Philosophy was much "like an
artichoke" a book "that
should be eaten leaf by - leaf."
Then the English history pro
fessor began to munch on some
of the Lippmann leaves:
"A ccording to Lippmann,
there has been a Joss of execu
tive power . . . and a dangerous
overemphasis of public opinion
. . . Lippmann sees in the ex
ecutive power of the govern
' ment a branch particularly
dedicated to allegiance of law."
Dr. Godfrey pointed to what
Lippmann called a "lost value"
government "with some higher
view." Lippmann's answer, said
Dr. Godfrey, is "a reaffirma
tion of dependence on natural
Philosophy Professor Poteat
filled the cameras next, talking
about "the exposed nerve of
liberal democratic government"
on which Lippmann has but his
political finger. According to
Dr. Poteat, the "exposed nerve"
is the fact that while liberalism
is "animated by criticism and
dissent," certain "practical lim

The students who attend, the

Dr. Poteat thoughtfully, is that
you. can't draw lines in advance
as to the limits of criticism and
dissent. He compared the "ex
posed nerve" to a digestive sys
tem that would digest both food
and the stomach itself.
Lt. Col. Orr pointed to foreign
policy as the "Achilles heel of
liberalism." He said, "Lippmann
thinks that public opinion is
wrong about all the time." Lt.
Col. Orr said Lippmann said
that the influence of liberal
democracy is dwindling in the
world, and that Lippmann's
remedies were a "strong-execu-
tive" and a "public philosophy."
Lt. Col. Orr, looking worried,
asked, "Is that (a strong execu
tive) really going to solve the
problem? Is that not worse
than the disease? Would that
not deprive the people of a say
so in government?"
.He also wondered, "Aren't
we already doing something
like formulating a public phil
osophy?" Dr. Heard said the thing
about which Lippmann is con
