Says Guardian
is Not Needed
Id like to thank you for your
editorial entitled Whats
Next? I, too, think it highly
irregular that the Library staff
has taken it upon itself to protect
the student body from what they
call, suspicious materials.
The student government took
a most effective stand against
Mr. Stallings Book Burning
legislation laat May. I hope it
will take as effective a stand
against this latest Library-creat Library-created
ed Library-created MONSTROSITY.
The UF is made up for the
most part, of conscientious, ma mature,
ture, mature, intelligent students; we
need NO guardian to see that
our moral standard is kept at a
high level.
