Another
flittle
peep of the
"unsilent
generation" would like also to help breakthe silence. I am not a Princeton senior —but no less a member of THIS generation.And I too will comment just as freely on mylife and future if
{guaranteed
absolute "anonymity." I'm "outspoken self-reliant, ambitious and seriously speculative."I
wonder fif
any of my professors couldmake an extra dollar by publishing my articulations. Probably
not—Fm
different. I'mNOT nervous. My mother
DIDN'T
divorcemy father and leave me to rob breweries toearn my way to college. My playboy brotherDOESN'T leach off his heiress wife. I wasNEVER expelled from college and my not-so-domineering father gives me more than 25ca week as allowance. I couldn't possibly havea very healthy outlook|on life since obviously I belong to the minority.
j
It seems to
mef
that*
when someone'sways in college have taught him to knowwhat HE
wants
and how to get
what jHE
wants and how to help HIMSELF, it hasgiven him only
a|second
childhood. As for
myself,
I
feel
college has taught me more ofan
understanding
of people, an appreciationof them. College has matured me. It hastaught me how to fit in with
people—not
howthey can
fit
in with me. | I
Whenf
I graduate I want a position forwhat I can do,
not*what
I can
get.
I want tomarry for|what I can give,
notjrwhat
I canreceive.
m
In addition to loving my mother anddad, who happen to be married! to one another, I like them. I don't rely
on
psychologically unhealthy escape mechanisms
to i
excuse my errors.
My'human
nature makes mesubject to erring.My Princeton brethren and I both hatemediocrity. As far as I'm concerned, everything must be carried out to its logical conclusion, everything I want has to be the best,everything I believe must be acted upon.BUT GOD DOES EXIST. I do suppose,if
people
insist upon being irreligious andimmoral they must pretend no one existswho disapproves.
4
This minute summary of my views nodoubt tattles on my
background—a
happyhome, a feeling of security, acceptance byworth-while friends, training in self-control.I'm most thankful for it. It has provided me
with f
he foundation for a life of happy service to God and my
fellow
man. From LIFE'Spresentation, boys at Princeton must thinkthey can build skyscrapers without a basement floor. To
themll
extend my sinceresympathy. |

"Hats off" to Student Council for setting up a committee to handle the springelections. The system is one in which the officers of all clubs and organizations will beelected in order of the importance of the of
fice ;
it will assure all that major offices willbe filled by the most capable, but only ifstudents vote intelligently.

Primary elections for all major offices— Student Council officers, Sodality

editor of

president of Dorm Committee and DSO, YCS chairman,
class
presidents, and presidents of all extra and
co-cur
ricula
r
clubs—are
another assurance of themost capable girls filling the top positions.The effect of the basically sound system depends entirely on the student body.It
will I
require that students make aneffort to go to College Hall to
vote—where
all the primaries will be held. Is it reallyworth giving up that last minute card game,extra cigarette, or gab sessions to vote forgood officers??? It will require this, BUT itwill require much more — THINKING andPRUDENCE.
I 1
Dare to be an individual! Vote for the
personfyou
think is best — not whom yourroommate, best friend, or classmate tells youto vote
for.
Don't rely on others to makeYOUR decisions for the person YOU wantelected.

By Arlene HajdukIf an award were given for "themost revolutionary man of theyear," Yves St. Laurent would undoubtedly receive the honor. Whois Yves St. Laurent?

Laurent outdid himself with his first creation. According to high fashion, the baggychemise has been outmoded bythe barrel trapeze! Are you feeling very much the peasant inyour Shetland crew andplaid?!Positively Speaking:There was song popular someten to fifteen years ago entitled"Accentuate the Positive." It hada bouncy tune and some sillyverses, but the philosophy of thetitle was sound. Accentuated pos-itiveness would certainly changea student's outlook on everydayliving. The disease of complaining might become extinct andthen student association would bemore pleasurable.

Mercy
hurst GleeClub Concert; Little TheaterA short time ago, George Goldfarb,principal of the John Marshall Junior HighSchool in New York City, climbed to theroof of an apartment house and plunged tohis death. The publication of
Goldfarb's
suicide enlightened the minds of millions ofAmericans to one of the biggest educationalproblems in New|York City.For years juvenile deliquency had beena rising
problemlin
the Big City, but neverbefore had such a wave of teenage violencestruck in the educational institutes.As a result of
Goldfarb's
death the NewYork City Board of Education has ruled,
"any
pupil charged with a violation of lawwould be
suspended."
The very next day over600 troublemakers were suspended from thecity's various schools. This stirred up a greatdeal of protest from some teacher and civicgroups.The critics of this problem should go beyond the class rooms with their criticism andinto the homes to discover the real cause ofdelinquency and correct it. Only then canschools begin
again;to
teach and cope withthe youth of America.

Students of Mercyhurst College have agoverning function of which they should be
proud—the
Student^
Board of Discipline. Itis a function of, by, and for the students.This Board takes from the faculty and
places
on
the
students the responsibility of disciplinary measures. Penalties inflicted correspond to the gravity of the offense..
-Kfe
Observing the February 25, board list itwould seem that not only are the generalregulations of the college being
ignored,
butthat the Board itself is not considered a serious and
%
mature disciplinary measure. If thepurpose of this Board is not
fully
understood,
the
inquiry
of ja
prominent campus organization into the present attitude might help."Freedom," Webster says, can be "thepossession off rights and privileges
orf
boldness of performance." The latter is the pathchosen by some of
Mercyhurst*s
apartment-dwellers. It is a known fact that we havemore freedom and less supervision than thedorm residents
Ibut
it does not follow thatwe should take
advamtage
of thislsituation.Why do we spend Sunday morning studyin the lounge? What is wrong with yellingfrom room to room during quiet hours? Afive minute limit on phone conversationsseems picayune until you or I are at the endof waiting line at
10:15
We, who offend, better turn the tide before binding steps have to be taken.
i
Have you ever tried to tell someonesomething and had
him I
completely ignoreyou? Resentment and hurt build up insideyou as a result. Multiply this feeling by thenumber of girls who were causing disturbance during any part of our lecture seriesand it adds up to old-fashioned rudeness, in
terpreted
as a personal
insult.
Certainly we,as Catholic college students, want to be careful not
to j
create unpleasant relations between the college and its guests. Our guestsare too refined to show their
hurt
at our in-attentiveness. Offender, ask yourself beforethe next
lecture—how
can I be sure whethersomething might interest me if I don't giveit a chance to do so?
