And some of the best gossip
I’ve heard about other girls
has been repeated to me as com
ing into general knowledge at a
bull-session—not a hen-party.
Jane Clark.
To the Editor:
If there was one thing I learned
in Philosophy 201 it was "the ap
plication of critical habits of
thought, anrd the employment of
rational criteria in the evaluation
of all opinions and prospective
beliefs.” This is introduced for
those with the questioning mind,
by the way of saying, the word
“Students” as used in last Sat
urday’s Emerald in the statement:
“Students Oppose Semester Plan,
Survey Shows,” was used very
ambiguously. In fact, the writer
felt the article was very over-bal
anced; in one direction.
Certainly anyone familiar, in
some respects at least, with sur
veys or public opinion polls,
knows that those obtaining the
information are, or should be, pri
marily concerned with the infor
mation are, or should be, primar
ily concerned with securing a rep
resentative cross section of the
individuals being questioned. I
throw out the question: “Was this
the procedure in the survey at
hand?” Yes, the writer is aware
that this was a “short random
survey,” and also why then should
a "short random survey” repre
sent the “Students” opinions
The issue at hand is the term
system versus the semester sys
tem, and as you have undoubted
ly surmised by now the writer is
partial to the latter. I have now
been under both systems, since
coming to the University of Ore
gon, and it behooves me to find
any educational, or logical rea
sons that justify the term sys
tem in preference to the semes
ter stystem! If there are reasons
would some one informe me as to
why some 600 odd colleges
throughout the United States
prefer the latter, as opposed to a
small minority in favor of the
former ? ?
As for students who maintain
that, under the semester plan
they would have to study for fin
als during the Christmas holi
days, why take your books home ?
I see no reason, other than psy
chological, why you have to study
during the holidays. I have sin
cerely enjoyed my short stay at
the University of Oregon, and
shall go along with whichever
plan is sanctioned in the end, but,
let us be more objective and get
at the essence of this matter.
Look what happened on Dr.
Gallup’s last presidential poll!
