Daily Gazette (Newspaper) - December 19, 1970, Xenia, Ohio Editorial Page of the Xenia daily Gazette Jeffrey Hart Page pour saturday december 19, 1970 Are shared obligation College professors views limited to narrow Field this is the season for Hie twanging of Heartstrings. Newspapers All Over the country willingly perform the humane service of alerting the pub lic to cases of greatest need. One reads of a family living in a filthy trailer the water turned off for Lack of payment hunger a constant companion of fatherless children huddled in a cold tenement of ill jobless parents seeking to hold a fam ily together while they await help that never comes. One of the most heartening tilings about the Holiday season is the Man net1 in which Good people respond when they learn of such cases. Often there is an outpouring of help food better housing Job of fers. The Christmas spirit is most warmly manifested in such ways. The sad things As has so often been observed is that the Christmas spirit wanes with the season but the cruelly urgent need of men women and Chil Dren battered by life goes on the year round. The sudden largesse in re spouse to appeals is like a godsend but much of what is Given is soon gone. Perhaps it is wrong to introduce this melancholy chill the glow of charitable satisfaction with a reminder that when the Holiday outpouring is used up the wolves of need will again snuffle at the door of trailer and tenement and Tarpa per Shack. We think not it is a re minder we believe that men and women of Good will cannot fail to accept in Good part. All of us share an merely at Christ Mas time but All the do what we can for those who have been cruelly used by life. In a previous column 1 pointed out that the trouble some situation on the Campus is connected with Hie develop ment of a much More instrumental relationship Between student and institution. Very Inch More than in the past the student uses the institution the degree gains him Entrance to the meritocracy. Fuch less to Day does lie identify himself with the institution and make it a component of his sense of self. But this profound social fact Long in the making does not explain Why some issues and not others move the student to action and to disruption. Why Given a predisposition to use the University does he select just these issues his Selec Tion of issues there is no doubt is determined by the o v e r whelming by Liberal character of the american University especially the so called elite schools suit As Lite Ivy league Berkeley and the first line state universities. At Princeton which was not Long ago a very bastion of social privilege and then in important ways actually a South Ern school the year 1968 found some 80 per cent of the faculty supporting Hubert Humphrey while Nixon and Dick Gregory evenly split the remainder. That Nixon and Dick Gregory s Rad ical Black each got about 10 per cent at Princeton s u g gets How aberrant a phenom Enon this faculty is within its american context. The summer 1s70 Issue of the quarterly Magazine of the political science association extends this impression with some immensely revealing figures. A i Alit Mulde Survey of faculty members showed or example Fiat in the social sciences and. The Liberal arts some 70 per cent of the faculty approved of the emergence of Radical student activism As against 30 per cent who disapproved. The same proportions yield when they were asked to Label themselves politically. Left and Liberal Drew about 70 per cent Middle of the Road 20 per cent conservative 10 per cent in a recent Gallup poll on the other hand More than 50 per cent of americans generally designated themselves As conservative on Vietnam to choose two representative de prognostic a Tor from Gazette files 20 years ago today u.

In this nationwide faculty Survey 65 per cent voted for Humphrey 15 per cent for Nixon 5 per cent for other candidates excluding Wallace who gut about while the rest a rather Large percentage did t vote. Again the Liber Al left percentage hovers around 70 per cent. Thus the atmosphere in he Campus is startlingly More Liberal than it is in the surround ing society in which More Over As the election results and other1 figures show Strong moderate conservative cur rents Are lowing. Under these circumstances tension even conflict Between the Campus and the surrounding society is perfectly predictable. But Why the logical next question is faculty sentiment so Liberal left not at All in my View because College faculties Are especially intelligent or unusually Well informed though that would be their answer. As a matter of fact most col lege professors while perfectly competent specialists in their academic Fields Are by no Means especially intelligent much less Well informed on a wide Range of subjects. The answer in my View is that individuals who already Are left or Liberal tend to choose academic careers they choose precisely against that surrounding society. The Choice is As much not to become a businessman a general con Gressman or a lawyer As it is a Choice in favor of special izing in slake spare or Struc tural1 linguistics. Given this kind of self selection the Aber rant results in the above statistics Are scarcely surprising. Nor is the behaviour we have become accustomed to on the College Campus.

New York Howard Hughes the Best known non person in the world with the possible exception of Nikita Khrushchev the Loch Ness monster and the abominable snowman declined today to answer my simple request for an exclusive interview. Pretty Cheeky of him Wol i explained to the Nassau Bellhop who answered the phone that there was nothing in it for me except perhaps a Little old pulitzer prize which is not lockable. But the kid still claimed up. Big Man who lives upstairs Ain t he said. Everybody Ever a s s o c i ated with Hughes has been struck dumb by the experience. And that fact it seems to me is the most remarkable thing of All about the Enigma of the Odd billionaire. Who enforces this Rule of silence How can a trusted employee and confidant let s say his father s old Friend and Howard s comptroller Noah Dietrich or an sex wife Jean Peters or the chief of Hughus Nevada operations former Fri Man Bab Marcu or even one of Hughes mormon male nurses secretaries body guards and chauffeurs not yield to what must be colossal offers for their stories. Every thing that has been written about Hughes for years has been pure speculation or outrageous fiction because there was no Way to Contact the Man no Way to derive any information from persons who presumably were close to him. We have been assured that he is disfigured and docs not wish be seen that he i a s become so gorm conscious that he walked around h i s a Ascot inn Las vegas pent Houst with his shoes in cased in empty kleenex boxes won t Lei anybody use his expensive Aero a executive plane because it has Here however Are four True Hughes stories item no. 1 one Day at his foot Jet rep at Culver City calif., waiting for a Hughes plane to Fly us to Palm Springs i noticed a parked executive b-25 and asked whose in was.

I was picked up by a somber Young mormon in a somber Sedan. In route he asked me what i d have for lunch. In my confusion i said a Ham on he picked up a car phone and said "lx-9, this is m4c. The individual who is coming for lunch will have a Ham on then he Hong up. Or Mahue was most suave As he led me from his own of fice into a magnificent private office with a desk shaped like a soaring Wing. As we had a drink he kept looking Over my shoulder at the door behind me. Suddenly i heard the door open and i trembled As Maheu jumped up and smiled. I lumbered to my feet and found my Knees shaking As i turned to mesh what i was sure would be the world s richest and most mysterious Man. It was t Howard Hughes. He never showed.
