McMUBRY WAB WHOOP Thursday. March 6 1958 vUhoon ra&hian Zfealu Page 4 mmmummm w Ulomen'd tradition to creature Ct THE PYRAMID LOOK is played up hero by Sandra Founiuin Abi- lono freshman. Her cotton knit sack of a golden amber color is matched by stitched pointed-toe shoes. As a departure from the usual run c campus news events the War Whoop this week is happy to present a fashion feature on what is perhaps the most drastic change in women's clothing styles in recent years. Reminiscent of another era in American fashion the new style variously called the "sack dress" the "chemise" and the "shift" is expected to become prominent on the Reser- vation's fashion scene before the close of the school year. Opinions on the new style vary. The t'enernl opinion presented by the masculine Indians polled was that it was too different (wasn't that the general opinion made of the new Foul this year?) Caleb Ilildcbiand Vernon freshman ventured "I don't like it I guess it's becuuse it's new. I...

MARCH 13. 1958 No. 22 Comments By DON BOYD In this age when we are placing so much emphasis on recruiting scientists many of the public schools arc giving aptitude tests to their students We heard a story about such a test recently and we'd like to pass it on to you It seems that each student was to be asked one question and his response was to be considered an indication of his aptitude The test question was this1 "A cow has four legs and one tail If the tail should be changed to a leg how many legs would the cow have7" The students who immediately shout "Five!" show mathematical aptitude and thus they should be steered toward being mathemati- cians we were told The students who said ' Hmmm four legs one tail one tail four legs tail turns to a leg one tail one leg one leg one tail foui legs ono leg five Ices one leg four legs five legs yes the answer is five legs" should be scientists we were told Be- caus...

rag 2 THE WAX WHOOP Thursday March 13. 19S8 Dual Lectureships Initiated by Willson Denison Gifts J. M. WILLSON MRS. J. M. WILLSON Lccturo Donors Glimpse of the Globe By CONRAD CHERRY and REX WILLIAMS Comment Tin: United Stntcs has reason to be a bit cautious concerning a possible summit conference. The foiccs of the Soviet Union (as is quite evident) would like nothing better than to quickly draw the top officials of the Western Powers into a conference in which nothing would be accomplished except in the way of a publicity stunt. The tiagedy of such a conference would be that we would not only have inadequate time to prepare but also our most capable ministers would be unable to contribute. For a while it looked as if Russia had us over a barrel. If we accepted the invitation to such a summit conference we would endanger ourselves by possible trkkciy fiom the opposition be- cause of oui lack of pieparation and representation. If we declined the invitation it would seem that we woul...

CHAPEL CUTS .-l n il I r-- I m g A Glimpse of the Globe By CONRAD CHERRY and REX WILLIAMS Comment TIhtc is much talk at present pro and con regarding U. S. foreign aid. The debate on this issue follows along the lines of per- centage of budget to be spent on foreign aid and the "attitude" with which this aid is given. As for the first part of this issue wo must look upon both the selfish and unselfish arguments. The amount of capital and goods spent on foreign aid will not only produce living means to suffering people hut also yield for us a closer connection with the countries whom we aid. While we can claim to be unselfish in our granting of aid we must frankly admit that this release of goods is also done with the hope that "Uncle Sam" will profit in the long run as well. We hear much concerning the "attitude" with which U. S. foreign aid is given. It appears to some that we give but we do not give with "no strings attached." It ...

"Honest" he said "I haven't kept a dime of it! Every penny went right where it was supposed to go! Besides all that I'm bonded " It seems he had been reading our column of March 13 in which we had a few words to say about administrative honesty. We think there is no point in pursuing this subject further but this word of explanation may be in order the kind of "administra- tive honesty" which we had in mind is called in other parlance "calling a spade a spade " 'Nough said English Epiiodcs department: Maybe you've heard about the gangster who rushed into a saloon shooting right and left yelling "All you dirty skunks get outta here!"

Election of Freshman Class v ago 2 Comment. . . . Many things which exist and have existed in our nation are tho result of a cause and effect reaction; as is true with most his- torical events. From this cause and effect series have sprung our much-debated and very controversial labor unions. At one time our nation nasscd tlirounh an era which saw labor ferociously taken advantage of and practically deprived of all democratic rights by the all-too-nowcrful big business man. The result was lnevnaoie. Through combined and carefully planned efforts labor was soon to gradually gain its well-deserved rights under the democratic system. Today however it is the general feeling that the scales have tipped the other way. Now it is felt that the unions have so com- mercialized that they assume the role of the Colossus in the plac...

VOL. 35 Comments Br DON BOYD WE THOUGHT we'd heard just about all the "rich Texan" stories in existence but the other day Bennett Cerf (NOT a Texan by the way) got off the worst (or the best depending on your outlook) of them all: "Heard about the Texas dog who bought his own mailman to bite?" But none of the "Texas" stones made up by people from far away have the appeal for us that the geuine article has We happen to be about as much a "city feller" as anybody ever was but if there's anything we like and en- joy it's a real honest-to-good-ness cowboy story.

Today much attentive criticism is being given to the American system of education. It is not only analyzed as a system in itself but is also held up in comparison with European system1:. It goes without saying that m light of some of our educational piodutts peihaps the American edu- cational process is falling far short of what it should be accomplishing Our methods of teaching have had some early foundation on this particular theory that our pur- pose is to make the school graduate a well-rounded personality rather than a mere scholar.

Thursday. April 10 1958 THE WAR WHOOP Page 3 oLJru 6 Views By BARACKMAN By not-so-popular request this week's offering will be written in an attempted "personal" style. Those who didn't like last column may like this one and those who did will (we hope) be charitable enough to read this anyway. As long as we are being per- sonal we'll go whole hog: WE HATE FILTH( Roomie this is not intended to be a slam). We have always hated filth but had not thought about it too much in connection with our college until Mrs. Foster ambled into the glass cage in which donnitoiy ic- ceptionists arc imprisoned. She muttered something about the de- plorable state of campus "cleanli- ness." Into our mind's eye there came the pirturo of our campus which is getting a little green around the edges and with luck and sidewalk travel will eventu- ally attain lush verdancy. In the event that this pheno- menon occurs the highly imagina- tive Indian will instantly be re minded of the "Boy With Green Hair" plus ...

Of course there will be a few remaining minor sports for the various teams to gain points. At this point in regards to team totals IHR is in front of the "pack". This is due to their first place finishes in football and basket- ball. Ko Sari holds second place with their victory in volley- vall. Kiva and the Dirty Shirts arc in a deadlock for the llliru ijusmuil. xnu ritraiiiiiuu followed by Chi Omicron round the standings. So the track meet plus tennis und handball will have a definite bearing on the final team totals.

Ml W Of- it ..WL?5pi. VOL. 35 Boyd Comments By DON BOYD We heard a story about Arthur Schnitzjer the other day which for various reasons we are now going to share with you. (The reasons are: 1. that people who talk about Schnitzlcr stand a chance of being considered intel- lectual which is always handy if you happen to be at college; and 2. that people who take drama courses or modern literature courses may be glad to hear some- thing funny about a man who had a pretty rocky time of it.) To the story: This critic had given Herr Schnitzler a pretty bad time of it in a review of one of Schnitzler's plays so that dra- matist decided to return the in- sult. He didn't want to start a big fuss; he just wanted to reply to his attacker with subtle invec- tive. He finally composed his let- ter and it started this way: "Dear Herr So-and-so: I am writing to you from the smallest room in my house." Euphemism deparimonl: There seem to be quite a lot of people hereabouts who don't like the idea o...
