Dear Editor,Today's
advanced
age has
offered
[manyimprovements in science, in economics, andin society
itself.
Among student life, the development of new ideas,ideals,and pursuitshas uncovered a variety of attitudes ofChristian life. From these varieties
confusion
arises in the meaning of the word maturity.Like all
ofterf-used
words, maturity hastaken on a new connotation, that of sophistication. Although Webster asserts
\
that thetwo words contradict each other, the modernmind considers the artificiality and unnatu-ralness of sophistication as part of the essence of maturity. Apart from
th elf
act that
a|mature
person used to be fully developedin body, mind, and character, (Don't considerthis at all, it's only the slight matter), somenow believe that maturity means rigid, stiffsnobbery to be exercised during their pretentious day. Gone are those conservativeideals of sincerity, naturalness,
and
\
friend
liness, i
| II
Of course, those "mature moderns" havea few dissenters who are still in favor of old-fashioned Christian charity, which should beincorporated at college especially in good,wholesome entertainment, the natural laughter of humorous situations which relieve thestrain of earnest work, with accompanyingrespect for those in authority. They believeenthusiasm and vigor are vital for the enjoyment of life. When they can't find any, theymake some of
thedr
own. Imagine lookingfor such
thingsfin life!!!gg ^f
But one must be
careful inot
to accusethem of
|
immaturity, for they are livingWebster's meaning rather than the modern's.
