Committee Explains
Report to Groups
(Conlinued from page one)
group over the rushing program
now in effect.
“The fall term hands-off policy
makes freshmen feel that they are
not wanted,” Dick McLaughlin,
IFC president said. "By this system
(the deferred rushing program sub
mitted by the ASTTO committee) a
larger group of men will pledge.”
McLaughlin explained that the
greater pledge rate would exist be
cause freshmen would be separated
from older confirmed independents.
The IFC did not vote on the re
Some Opposition
Discussion on the deferred rush
ing plan among members of Heads
of Houses revealed some opposition
to the proposed program.
Norma Beetem, Alpha Omicron
Pi president, didn't quarrel with the
principle, but as a practical prob
lem couldn't see how a rush week
could be worked out winter term.
Donna Buse, Delta Zelta, de
scribed the deferred rushing prin
ciple as an unnatural division be
tween sorority women and fresh
man girls during fall term. She said
the plan would tend to isolate fresh
men from the rest of the campus.
Few questions or disagreements
were raised by Heads of Houses in
regard to the freshman consolidat- |
ed unit plan or the counseling pro
gram. The group was unwilling to
take a straw vote upon the dormi
tory committee report until the in
dividual members had consulted
their living organizations. All wo
men’s houses will discuss the report
at house meetings this evening.
IIM Favors Report
IDC expressed a majority opinion
in favor of the committe proposals.
No vote was taken and members re
ceived copies of the report to study.
A meeting will be held at a later
date where the report will be dis
cussed further.
Donald DuShane, director of stu
dent affairs, said of the dormitory
committee’s work, “We are deeply
appreciative of the time and
thought spent on this report and
for the evidence it gives that stu
dents and University authorities
can approach mutual problems with
the same objectives in mind—that
what is best for the students is best
for the University.
DuShane Makes Statement
“I am sure that the University
will make every effort to utilize the
eommittee’s recommendations In
further improving our program for
next year.”
President Newburn was out of
town and not available for com
ment Sunday.
Director of Men’s Affairs Ray
Hawk termed the committee’s re
port “a job well done.’.’ Hawk com
plimented the group upon its
achievement and its thoroughness.
He said that he had no immediate
abjection to the proposals but
eautioned that the plan “must be
thought out to see if it is econom
ically feasible.”
U.S. Must Aid
World Unity,
Says Speaker
(Continued from page one1
Hence, in accordance with this
policy, study of the national lang
uage has been greatly encouraged
and made compulsory in some in
stances. During the years 1938 and
1940 many of the systems of al
phabets which had been drawn up
for small minority groups as a
part of a previous program for
the building of individual cultures
were replaced with the Russian
The former plan, which saw the |
promotion of sectional dialects and
linguistic differences to the ex- j
tent that courts were required to j
use the language of the locale in
which they were located in legal
proceedings, is now being replaced
with the one-language program.
Soviet patriotism has been stimu

Russians Wish Universal Language
Russia's nationality policy plan
for the future, as seen by Towster,
is the eventual creation of a single
world language — the Russian
language. According to Towster,
the Russians do not believe that
the idea will unfold at once, but
will be a gradual process resulting
from the formation of a lone, world
socialist state.
Out of the socialist state will
emerge several zonal international
languages. As the zonal centers
merge, a common language will
be accepted. And that common
language will be the Russian lang
uage as the language of socialism.
"In the Russian use of psycho
logical politics, words are wea
pons,” Towster said.
“Concepts are symbols. Symbols
are used to spread the message
of nationalism among the people.
Repression of the use of ‘local'
words and the introduction of ‘out
side’ words is effected by the Rus
sian policy makers as a portion of
the nationality program,” Towster
informed his audience.
No War, Samson Stage Now
Towster said that he did not
anticipate a war between the Unit
ed States and Russia unless there
is an immediate military emer
gency. The world will move in a
“Samson”-like stage, he said, each
nation afraid to wage war, but
building its armament in prepared
ness. Eventually something out
side of war will be used to settle
the ideological struggle, he inti

Speeding drivers involved in
1 out of 3 fatal traffic accidents
Watch out—the time you save by speeding
may be spent in the cemetery. According to offi
cial traffic records, speed is the most frequently
reported violation in fatal traffic accidents.
So exercise your foot someplace else than on
the accelerator. Remember that a speeding car
is harder to handle, takes longer to stop, does
more damage. Make it a point to drive at safe
speed . . . always.
When driving conditions are bad, safe speed
is often much lower than the legal, posted
limit. Be sure to slow down when weather or
visibility is poor. It may take a little longer—
but chances are you’ll live a lot longer.
Lights out for another speed merchant.
Somebody tried to outguess a traffic
light and now somebody is dead. Don’t
let this happen to you. Slow down at
intersections. Remember — when you
step on the ga3 instead of the brakes, ij:
may be your last step.
Too lata for tho doctor. This driver
couldn't wiiit. He speeded past another
car on a hill, and look what happened!
Remember this and be extra careful.
Don’t pass on hills or curves. Don’t
weave in and out of traffic. Always
drive at a safe speed.
-foe life you save
may be your own!
