Inquiring Reporter. 9 Should the college student who maintains a passing grade in his courses be exempted from the military obligation to serve in the armed forces of his country? (Editor’s note: In answer to the question, the young man in military uni¬ f orm who is not inclined academically or does not have sufficient funds to attend college probably says " No.” The young man interested in getting a higher education—learning a trade or entering a profession, probably answers " Yes.” Other considerations are pertinent: for instance, waging war is sophisticated today. Don’t the military services want trained minds? Doesn’t the long-range welfare of society demand more educated minds? The emphasis is on liberal education. So, how " selective” should the Selec¬ tive Service Boards be?) The Inquiring Reporter for the " Pioneer” asked the question of a few ex-service¬ men, since they might be inclined to have an objective point of view. In one case he got the feminine view. " Millions of local, state, and federal government dollars are annually sup¬ plied to colleges and college students. Without this aid, the cost of a college education—to all but a select few— w ould be prohibitive. An obligation to serve the nation in one of the military services is implied. And college stu¬ dents should not have this duty de¬ ferred until graduation. ’ —Bob Cound (U.S.M.C.) " Being drafted out of school ... in¬ terrupts a young man’s education and takes him away from family and friends. But the opportunity ... to at¬ tend school in a free country did not come about by accident. It was won with blood, sweat, and tears by Ameri¬ can servicemen who left their families and schools to insure that these good things of life would remain for us.” —Robin Alexander (U.S. Navy) " College students should be exempt from their military obligation until they complete their education. If col¬ lege is postponed until after the stu¬ dents’ tour of duty, they often go to work and not to college. Our country needs educated people in service and out; therefore, both students and coun¬ try profit by a completed education.” —Carolyn N. Flaherty (U.S.M.C.) " The U.S. is reported to be a land of equal opportunity. It would seem to be a form of discrimination to prefer a young tradesman, craftsman, or even a laborer for the draft rather than a col¬ lege student. Equal opportunity implies equal obligation—so no one ethically should be exempt from the draft on the grounds of personal convenience.” —Ovid L. (Bud) Holmes, Jr. (U.S.M.C.) " No! By the time they graduate, most of them have jobs lined up and do not want to go into the service. They should be obligated to serve, even if it is in the reserves. It might give them an understanding of what is going on and what we are fighting for.” —Bob Gutierrez (U.S. Army) " I agree with this statement. I have of¬ ten heard the argument that the campus is a refuge for draft-dodgers. The only answer to this is that no one can main¬ tain a satisfactory academic average and not learn a great deal. In this way, they can help their country more in school than in the service.” —Norman Miller (U.S. Navy) 10

What? Me Worry? By John Me Carthy (Editor’s Note: The ruminations of a typical (?) college man were recorded secretly by tapping his mind with a new " bugging” device. The evidence is that he has a variety of worries, many of which might be common to the young males cur¬ rently on campus.) CONSOLATIONS—Two beautiful girls are not having the desired effect on the author of the following essay. Janet Upstill and Ann Raikoglo are trying to be sympathetic. Uncle Sam Wants You! " YOU’RE in the army now, you’re not behind the plow . . Sounds familiar, doesn’t it? This is the theme song of a new grade issued to students here at City College for below average marks—a grade in the military. Have you wondered what it is like in Viet Nam? Let your grades drop and you’ll find out soon enough. It’s not that Uncle Sam wants just the stupid ones. Heavens, no! He just figures that if you don’t dig books, maybe you can dig foxholes. At the present time, fifteen and one-half units of courses is the minimum required by the Selective Service Board in order to stay in school. Some people just can’t hack fifteen units. They overload themselves and soon find that they are on academic probation—which automatic¬ ally drops them to twelve and one-half units—which in turn leads to digging foxholes. The Predatory Animal But the draft isn’t the only problem bugging the men here at City College. Men of Sacramento City College , be¬ ware! It is a fact that lurking around the campus are several members of a species of female called SNEAKUS BROADIS. These shameless girls believe in the old say¬ ing, " A man chases a woman until she catches him.” These unscrupulous females come to college for the sole purpose of securing husbands—for themselves, that is. This vicious carnivore is a highly dangerous animal. During the day it seems to behave like any other normal female, but at night . . censored . . . Never be caught alone with one of this species. The Enigma of Women Then again, maybe this isn’t your problem. Maybe your problem is with the girl friend you have already. Is she playing it coy? Is she really putting you down? Do you get that anxious feeling that is often the first symptom of becoming henpecked? Cheer up, Spunky! I’ve got the an¬ swer for you, too. Drop her. Then you ask, " What if I don’t got a girl friend?” Have you ever thought of going to Vic Tanny’s? Maybe you should read some good books, check up on the weath¬ er reports. This way, you’ll never be at a loss for words. The Answer To Poverty So what, you don’t like girls. You got money problems? That’s the second largest problem facing college students today. They just don’t have enough bread to afford a date now and then. Students in college need more money nowadays. Not everyone is as lucky as some people. When students need money, they hit the old man for it. Some of you poor unfortunate people have to work. Ech! Now I will tell you the simple way to get a job. You go to an employment office. After you have waited two months and have not gotten a job, try going around to different places that are seeking employees. If this does not work, sign up for relief from President Johnson’s War-On-Poverty program, because by this time you’ll probably need it. This Matter of Support After you discover that you can’t get relief and you tell your parents they’re going to have to support you for the next four years, what happens? Your mother might faint. Your little brother, who has already moved all of your stuff out of the bedroom you have shared with him for 18 years, might cry a lot. But now your father, that is a different matter alto¬ gether. He starts out in a subtle tone of voice to explain to you how big a bum you are. He calls you all sorts of names like " lazy-good-for-nothing” and " failure.” You know the whole bit; you’ve been through it before. As his face reddens, his volume goes up and reaches a climactic point in his oratory. After that, it is all down hill. He finally realizes that you haven’t been listening to a thing he’s said. He then starts to whimper such cute phrases as " The peace corps is a wonderful organization for a college student to af¬ filiate with” or " Why not join the NAVY and see the world?” Through a port hole? Not on your life. When he gets to this point, you can rest assured that he will let you stay for at least another nine months. Vacation-Time Blues Ah! But what happens when summer comes around. What will you do then? The old man might get sick of seeing you loaf around the house. Your paw might make like a papa bird in spring and kick you out of the nest. This might put you out on a limb. Why not try flying south for the Summer, like Argen¬ tina or Antarctica. You might impress your parents by moving out and not leeching off of them all summer. Then again they might pray for a snow storm in August.

Coordinating Group Inter-Club Council Promotes Activities EXTRACURRICULAR activities are a valuable means toward the end of a liberal education, as important as academic study. Membership in cam¬ pus clubs provides valuable practical experience in countless aspects of learning such as training in leadership and cooperation, skills which could never be developed only through classroom study. A club for almost every interest is available on the City College campus. Special-interest groups constitute the majority of the organizations; how¬ ever, political, religious, and social clubs are also well-represented. Clubs participate in many all-campus activities each semester, including competitions for points held for Homecoming in the fall and Pioneer Day in the spring. They also host speakers, sponsor the majority of the after-game dances, and undertake various service projects, such as raising money for charities and campaigning to preserve campus grass. At the semi-annual Student Government Ban¬ quet in June, trophy awards were presented to the winners of the competition for Best Large Club and Best Small Club on campus.
