ly Consequently the average student knows
little of their activities and even
less of their purposes.
It is partly the fault of the
organizations and partly the fault
of publications. The Alligator
would be the best mouthpiece for
the cultural organizations and is
badly in need of a Cultural Col Column

cussions, discussions, forums, debates and lec lectures.
But organizations must cooper cooperate

their activities known. It is not
up to the Alligator to ask each

to do each week.
Aside from the organisations
which are already going their
part to stimulate intellectualism,
there are many others which do
nothing at aU.

FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE
The first thought that comes into our minds upon entering
eollege is, of course, marriage. But how many of us go about
seeking mates, as I like to call them, in a truly scientific manner?
Mot many, you may be sure.
So let us today make a scientific survey of the two principal
causes of marriagepersonality need and propinquity.
Personality need means that we choose mates because they
pessess certain qualities that complete and fulfill our own per pereenalities.
eenalities. pereenalities. Take, for example, the ease of Alanson Duck.
As a freshman Alanson made a fine scholastic record, played
varsity scrabble, and was president of his class. One would
think that Alanson was a totally fulfilled man. But he was not.
There was something lacking in his life, something vague and
indefinable that was needed to make his personality complete.
Then one day Alanson discovered what it was. As he was
walking out of his class fa Flemish pottery, a fetching coed
named Grace Ek offered him a handsome red and white pack
and said, Marlboro?"
Yes! he cried, for all at once he knew what he had been
needing to round out his personalitythe hearty fulfillment of
Marlboro Cigarettes, the soul-repairing mildness of their fine
tobacco, the easy draw of their unparalleled fitter, the ease and
convenience of their erushproof flip-top box. Yes, I will take a
Marlboro!" cried Alanson. And I will also take you to wife
if you wifi have me!"
La! she exclaimed, throwing her apron ovel her face. But
after a while she removed it and they were married. Today
they live happily in Baffin Land where Alanson is with an
otter-glazing firm and Grace is a bookie.
Propinquity, the second principal cause of marriage, simply
means closeness. Put a boy and a girl close together for a sus sustained
tained sustained period of time and their proximity will certainly ripen
into love and their love into marriage. A perfect example is
the case of Fafnir Sigafooe.
While a freshman at Louisiana State University, Fafnir was
required to crawl through the Big Inch pipeline as part of his
fraternity initiation. He entered the pipe at Baton Rouge and,
alone and joyless, he proceeded to crawl north.
As he passed Lafayette, Indiana, he was agreeably surprised
to be joined by a comely girl named Mary Alice Isinglass, a
Purdue freshman, who, oddly enough, had to crawl through
the Big Inch as part of her sorority initiation.
Chatting amiably as they crawled through Ohio, Pennsyl Pennsylvania,
vania, Pennsylvania, and New York State, Fafnir and Mary Alice discovered
they had much in common-like a mutual affection for licorice,
bobsledding, and the nonsense verse of Arnold Toynbee. When
they reached the Vermont border they were going steady, and
when they emerged from the pipe at Boothbay Harbor, Maine,
they were engaged.
After a good hot bath they were married and today they live
in Klamath Falls, Oregon, where Fafnir is in the weights and
measures department and Mary Alice is in the roofing game.
They have three children, all named Norman, c . m.. shi

Panel Says U. S. Has Ability,

our culture we dont have the
sustained drive in science, unless
that philosophy is modified.
This was the consensus opinion
of the panel which discussed The
Successes and Failures of Sci Science
ence Science and Technology in the United
States. On the panel were Dr.
J. H. Simons of Chemical En Engineering,
gineering, Engineering, Dr. W. W. Ehrmann of
the Sociology Department and
Dr. Alfred Diamant of the Po Political
litical Political Science Department.
Dr. Simons, who has an intense
interest in the philosophy of sci science,
ence, science, started the discussion with
the presentation of a certain set
of criteria for the definition of
various terms. According to Dr.
Simons, the fields science and
technology have been thb subject
of many great misconceptions,
like the comparing, as equal, the
jobs of both the scientists and the
engineer which, though related,
hold separate roles.
The scientists role enables
man to employ and correlate
factual recorded knowledge on
the one hand with technology
which employs knowledge for
the creation of practical arts.
