A prowler has entered another

time this school year.

We'd like to know.
The first couple of times the
incidents occurred it was easy to
pass them off as pranks and say
that they would quit as soon as
the furor over them died down.
But apparently such is not the
case. A prowler has broken in
another dorm after trying two
others. This makes a total of five
dorms that a prowler has tried
to enter or has succeeded in en
tering; Cobb, Connor, Joyner,
Winston, and Nurses.
Breaking into the women's
dorm may give some male a thrill
but it certainly does no good for
the women's nerves. The fact that
the prowler has done no harm to.

Ehringhaus legislator Harry
Diffendal, co-chairman of the com

working on the possibility of a

but in the meantime the buses must
be making money to keep run
ning. Monday, if it hadn't been for
the sale of advertising on the
buses, the system would not have
broken even financially. Things are
very tight for the transportation
committee. The question now is
whether a lot of the people who
rode the buses were just riding
them for the novelty of it.
If that is the case, the bus
system may be jeopardized as the
novelty wears off and the number
of riders decreases.
The value of the buses may
not be obvious during the present
stretch of good weather but anyone
who has had to walk from South
Campus to classes during the rain
or cold knows that they are needed.
South Campus residents who don't
like the prospects of walking to
class next winter or during the
next shower .should make it a point
to ride the buses during the next
two weeks. Then they can scratch
up a victory for their own comfort
and their ability to get things done

It took Governor Rockefeller a long
time to make up his mind about running
for president; but now that he has,
most political observers are anticipating
a determined, wel-wganized effort. Such
is the Rockefeller style.
One of the interesting questions about
his newly-emerged candidacy is yet to
be answered: Why did Rockefeller

On several occasions prior to last
week's announcement that he would fight
for the nomination "right up to the;
last vote at the convention," the New
York governor emphatically denied that
he would run "under any forseeable

the practical observation that he simply

The April 2S issues of the New Y&ri
Times, reporting on the crisis at Coha

Etx'oni (Sociology Department) shouted
through a bullhorn at the demonstrator;
The disruption of the educational
cess goes against what you are after."
Professor Greenman (French Depart
ment) reacted by roaring. 'There caa
be no education and no thought that
is divorced from action." According to
the story, the students thereupon vest
into huddles trying to decide who was

are primarily concerned to do.
Bad economic and social conditions
interfere with what people in institutions
of higher learning are going after, so
time-out should be taken to eliminate
them This is the only objection that
can be made to Etziooi's proposition,
in the circumstances.
Greenman's proposition about do
thought-without-action is true, but in a
dangerously misleading way. what sort
of action did Einstein's thinking depend
on for its consummation in the Relativity
theory? Well, he had to consult
monographs in mathematical physics,
discuss these with colleagues, etc.
Without such "action", his thought
would not have gotten him "what he
was after" an earthshaking theoretical
formulation of space, time and gravita
tion. Descrates' thinking about mind and
matter depended on the "action" of
taking a comprehensive look at things
and theories about them and then retiring
to the stove in the winter for the famous
definitive mediation that set the stage
for subsequent "modern" thought '
And what "action" did Gauguin take,
to realize bis thinking as a painter?
Well, he left family and country for
an exotic situation where the activity
of painting could be the main thing.
Now Greenman, by his wholesale,
on-campus pronouncement no thought
divorced from action makes it look as
if direct action aimed at social ameliora
- tion were necessary and contributory
to the sort of thinking that a scientist,
osopher or artist mustexercse if
he is' going to be any good as such.

artist is certainly not dependent on the
direct practical action of social ameliora
tion. It is most naturally and necessarily
"divorced" from it. This is why great
men are of two sorts: great thinkers
and great men of action.
Greenman's wholesale proposition is
true only,- if ia radically pragmatic or
a Marxist ideological conception of
