University Could Fight Cold War,
Believes U.O. Political Scientist
“The university should guard
against the sin of radicalism, and
the assumption of finality. It
should be abstract about partisans
of all purpose.’’
In this way the university could
be an effective weapon against the
cold war, in the opinion of Dr. E. S.
Wengert, head of the political
science department, who spoke last
night in Chapman Hall.
Wengert defined the purpose of
the university in the state, saying
it should cultivate conscious ab
stract thinking, and provide stu
dents with questions rather than
In this way, he believes, the
state would learn to face current
affairs directly and with reason.
“The impact of the cold war
on the university is inescapable,”
Wengert said. He called his defin
ition of the university’s purpose
the “Watchtower” task, saying it
was the only way to teach students
to guard against war hysteria.
Wengert’s “Watchtower” defin
ition opposes the scholarly, with
drawn “Ivory Tower” attitude,
which he termed a form of escape.
The only alternative, Wengert con
tinued, is violence, “which ends the
appeal to reason, and the possibil
ity of a university.”
Wengert’s lecture was the fourth
in the current University Lecture
