    Disasters Evil, Unpredictable; j
Red Cross Donations Aid Relief
By Norman Anderson
Have you ever seen a disaster?
No? Well talk to some of the
old timers of Galveston, Tex,
which was wiped out by a tidal
wave. Or to some of the thousands
caught in the Mississippl-Ohio Riv
er floods of 1927 or 1937. Best of
all. try some of those caught In
the Texas City holocaust of 1949.
They can tell you what a disaster
A rough estimate of the extent
of a disaster runs something like
Thousands of people without
homes, without any of their per
sonal belongings such as clothes,
beds, and they have no food, be
cause all the grocery stores have
been destroyed along with their
homes. There are no means of com
munication; telephone wires arc
down, lights are out, gas mains and
water mains arc non-existent, de
stroyed along with everything else.
Fires usually rage practically un
checked through whatever is left
Cries of pain, and moans from
the injured seep into every living
peison's hearing. Dead bodies, of
those you love and those you don't
even know, lie everywhere.
Coupled with a disaster is the
frantic worry of relatives, unable
to learn anything about their loved :
ones caught in the midst of na- ;
ture’s most horrible tragedies.
This is a disaster. This and much !
more is whnt the people of San |
Francisco in 1900, Tillamook, Ore- ,
gon, way back when; Ecuador,
during the tragic series of earth
quakes several years ago, all ex
And it is this which the Red i
Cross is called on to cope with I
throughout every year. To them |
falls the task of supplying food
and shelter, of helping the medical j
profession ease pain, and of giv
ing aid and comfort to the frantic \
relatives and worried ones who es
cape the worst of the disaster.
All this costs money, money com
ing from people like you and me
who part with a dollar which may
come back to us in ways we never
realize. This is the reason the Red
Cross conducts an annual fund
raising campaign every year.

man pledges would prove during
the remainder of the year that they
are capable of living In unity with
dormitory men. He cited the Uni
versity of Michigan as a school
where fall pledging and a living-in
poltry have been co-ordinated.
DuShane pointed out to the
group that under the program now

additional source of Income, and

Ray Hawk, director of men's af
fairs, indicated as advantages the
value of "pledge recruiters" who
may be invaluable assets in tin

the increase of the Greek-Inde
pendent ratio made possible
through the present pledging sys
The IFC members explained that
they desired attendance of fresh
men at house meetings and their
presence at work parties In order
to know the member whom they
had pledged.
One IFC representative com
plained of the "half-breed frater
nities" which he declared were re- j
suiting from the severing of
pledges from their houses.

question that is, "Do you think
family members should be admit

programs at lower prices than
townspeople ?”
The SU Hoard may have been
primarily against the proposal but
that wasn't the answer given by
the students asked the question
today. In fact only one answered
As far as the progrumH which
the SU might sponsor are concern

Joy Southward freshman in
liberal nrts "Yes. They have so
much to do with the University
that they should be allowed in at
the same prices as students."
John Braun senior in archi
tecture "As long as the students
contribute to the upkeep of the
SU and faculty members don’t,
then I think they are on the same
status as townspeople.”
I’at Howard freshman in libe
ral arts "I think they should.
Alter all, they are part of the Uni
versity family just as the students
Hank Wedemeyer freshman in
pre-med "Personally, I'd say
yes They are connected with the
University and therefore they are
entitled to its benefits as well as
the students."
I). E. Clark head of the his
tory department "I think it
would be a good psychological view
to make the faculty seem more a
part of the University family;
however, there are practical prob
lems to be worked out such as
some method of identifying facul
ty members w'hen they come to buy
tickets. It's pretty easy to identify
non-students, but to separate facul
ty from townspeople would be
more difficult."
Joyce Winn freshman in edu
cation "Yes! They have more to
do with the school than towns
people do. I do feel they should
have to pay the same fees to
wards SU maintainance that stu
dents do, however.
