Inside Story of Daily Emerald Workers Related;
Production Takes Many Hours, Many Talents
By Ward Lindbeck
Here's your paper. The Emerald
offices are silent rfow. Only two
persons are working. The delivery
man has made most of his deliv
eries. It's about time to quit and
gut ready for class.

assistants is busy making out the
“tip sheet” before his classes be

fore noon to give reporters enough
time to contact their news sources.
The Shacks doors open around
nine a.m. But except for a few
passers-through, the offices arc
empty until about 1:30. During the
morning reporters drift in to get
their day's assignment, one or two

by someone. The editors usually
meet for a moment or two, discuss

At 6:30 p.m. the editor for the

"As far as I am concerned, card

nist party are out of bounds a*
members of the teaching profes
sion," stated James G. Conant,
president of Harvard university, in
an address before the 75th anniver
sary convocation Friday afternoon.
He emphasized, however, that
with the single exception of Com
munism, a professor’s political
views, social philosophy and re
ligion are no concern of a univer
sity, provided they are within tho

dom of inquiry, and requires tho
independence of the university fac

learning Centers Vital
"As long as centers of learning
reflect the essence of diversity of
opinion and tolerance of opinion,
America will remain strong no
matter what lies ahead," Conant
Speaking on the subject, “Uni
versity Education and National Se
curity," Conant traced the devel
opment of the general education
system in the English speaking
colleges, as against the university
traditions of learning for its own
sake and the professional schools.
"All American universities have
the task of holding the balance of
those three elements in the univer
sity tradi’ion,” he pointed out.
Conant also went into the prob
lems faring the American univer
sity as a result of the present na
tional mobilization program and
the drafting of men and the use of
faculty members in various de
War Claimed Avoidable
Conant believed that the present
situation would not immediately
develop into a full-scale war, say
ing "if we are patient, strong anti
courageous, we may avoid war,”
but pointing out that there were
no immediate prospects of peace.
He said that the university
should not assume that the strug
gle would be long or short, but
should give in to mobilization. If
university faculty members must
be used in national defense proj
ects, Conant said, it must be made
ceitain that it is necessary as
teaching standands must not be
lowered through loss of faculty
"Education can be adapted to
the present situation." he said, "an
this has happened before." In the

their education interrupted by

ant recommended giving them all
the help they need when they re

Return to emphasis on the hu
manities and their concern for the
values of truth and excellence was
urged by Clarence Faust, a direc
tor of the Ford Foundation, in the
main address of Friday night’s
75th anniversary dinner.
University President H. K. New
burn concluded the remarks of the
dinner with an emphasis on the
contribution of persons to the

Faust, in his address, "The Place
of the Humanities in a University,”
asserted that the humanities must
deal with the problems of bringing
the values of truth and excellence

group will do so if the humanities
do not. He said society would deal
