An uninformed populace and a democracy cannot coexist and, therefore, neither truly exists at the University of Alabama. There is no doubt, despite the moderate changes that have taken place this year, that the majority of students at Alabama remain insensitive to the issue of change. For the most part, they are apathetic because they are uninformed on the issue. Attempts at change have been met with their total uninvolvement and lack of concern. Is it not enough, in the state of Alabama, that a student is a student, a citizen is a citizen, and it is a well established norm that one should never be confused with the other? Why would a student body be content in allowing a small number of people, possibly unrepresentative of the populace, to predominately influence the decisions that govern their lives on campus? Only the students themselves can answer these questions. There is but one fact that is certain. A majority of all students, not just the majority of the few involved, must be in agreement before any decision of change can be implemented. There is, there- fore, a need for more students to become informed and actively involved in campus affairs. A pro- fessor on campus may have the solution. Wom- en will lead the way, he predicts, because they read fashion magazines that occasionally print an informative article on relevant and timely issues. The striking feature of this comment-it may not be a gross understatement.

The decade of the sixties has been tagged the "breakaway" years, a term appropriately suggestive of change. Many changes have indeed occurred in the past ten years and they represent diverse man- ifestations of manls effort to alter his environment at almost every level. Man broke away from his natural habitat and went to the moon. The youth of the nation, now half the population, joined together to breakaway from long established conventions. Many thinking young people showed resentment toward the world they inherited, and students across the country took advantage of their mass assem- blage to make their voices heard. The methods of dissent have varied but the most remembered events have been the most brutal ones. This has had a profound effect on the general attitude of the estab- lishment in America. While it will continue to promote the space program and view the Apollo missions with admiration, it will also tend to look upon any change in campus affairs as being both a threat and a disaster. The violence on the campuses has quelled however, and the new order of the new decade seems to be one of peace. It is suggested that this new attitude will afford a more respectable case for change on the college campus. The peace vigil, the flower child and the mora- torium are the current popular symbols of hope for a peaceful and prosperous future in an age when survival is dubious.-There are very few students at Alabama who value these symbols, but it does not matter. The important thing is for students to value the abstract ideals which these things symbolize, mainly that they say to the world, "We care, we are concerned, and we are peacefulf, It is apparent that this incipient posture is already beginning to catch on. The University of Alabama did not pass through a violent stage of dissent during the "breakaway" years and now it appears that this is neither inevitable nor necessary. The mood is changing at Alabama as gradually, one by one, students become confronted with a proposition that concerns them. It will be a slow process, but change will come to Alabama. The script says so and even your best friend can tell you. There is no alternative but that it will happen, and in so far as it will be responsible, there is no alternative but that it will be accepted.
