Fruitless Mulberry Silverleaf Maple a crepe Myrtle a forsythia a Althea a in ivs Ltd a a a is new York morality can help colleges by North Callahan new Vork a the recent student disturbances on local College and University Camp uses have reverberated around the nation and caused understandable wonder and concern. Especially Are to who Are alumni of such institutions conscious of the trouble and i look upon my degree from Columbia somewhat in a new Light at times lately. For it is there that the big fuss took place there this renowned University now 214 years old its stately buildings touched with venerable Ivy its impressive Campus standing o u t prominently against the Skyline of upper Manhattan. There almost two centuries ago a Young student named Alexander Hamilton almost single hand edly kept Down a riot by his Fellows when he stood at an upstairs window and harangued them while the president of the then Kings College slipped out a Back door and to a waiting British ship. The fleeing executive Myles Cooper was a tory and against the american revolution b u t Hamilton Felt that in All fairness he should not suffer being mobbed. A a a what happened at Columbia in the first place the Heads of the institution have in recent years seemed to go out of their Way to emphasize Freedom for All humans even to the extent of exceeding the rules of society. Such sentiments May be All right among moderate people but when they fall upon the ears i of Radical militants they May furnish just the excuse that such people Are looking for. The worst violence at the University was led by outsiders whose Terest in higher education casual to say the least. But their interest in Power is More obvious. How much interest for example does a Man who goes by the name of 37x and who used a Bull Horn to arouse the rebellious students have in a College degree the shambles they made of the presidents office while sitting in there May furnish some kind of an answer. As if this were not enough they made demands that he resign even after the institution finally bowed to the inevitable and called in the police to evict the disorderly gang which infested five of the main buildings. A a a now what is the outcome the answer is still net Clear Here in new York any More than it is elsewhere in the aftermath of students demonstrations. Fortunately the Large majority of Columbia University students were against the rioters. And As one who teaches at another University Here i can say in All Candor that nearly All the students in my classes show a Fine attitude and Are serious minded ladies and gentlemen trying hard to get an education. There is net one real beatnik in my classes not a hippie As far As i can Tell and never have i noted any disorder in these classes. Many of them talk to me individually and express disgust at what some students do while others Are More indifferent or just do not take the trouble to express themselves. A a a at any rate from my Contact with Many students i am optimistic about the future at least More so than Many others i have heard. In my opinion what is needed is a return to some of the old fashioned discipline and morality practice by those who founded this nation. A Ood Many parents Are to blame for not having discipline in their Homes. How then can one expect it from their children at school we need to recognize the rights of others but also respect their property and position in the Community. Adequate doses of religion would be helpful something these a Way out people do not appear to have. Mainly. Character is needed on the part of students faculty and others concerned with our educational opportunities.
