Brandt, red-haired, pipe-smoking. president of the University of •Oklahoma, believes the little red schoolhouse and the~ ivy-walled university hold the future of democracy. While the armed forces are engaged in overcoming enemies of democracy it is the task of education to give "the spirit of independence to man. to make him an individual and to make him a stronger link in his government," Brandt says. "But it must be the right kind of education." Brandt decries the recent trend of educating for economic gain. Education, he says must be concerned with "keeping our nation spiritually alive." "The common aim of people and of education should be the same— o keep a resolute spirit, democracy becomes meaningless," he adds. Brandt is one of the nation's •ouugcr university presidents. He •eturned to his native Oklahoma ast year to assume the university ^residency after serving as directoi of the Princeton university press. BY MRS.

War Era Houseguest Can Be Bigger Hit By Making Visits Shorter and "Sweeter By RUTH MTLLETT To be a welcome house-guest this Summer is going to take more than the usual amount of. consideration and thoughtfulness.

Parties cost money and your hostess may be having to count pennies in order to get by on her food budget. And don't say you don't like anything that grows in the garden. Somebody has to eat those victory vegetables. Prepare to entertain yourself. Let your hostess understand you won't feele hurt if she runs off and leaves you for an afternoon or evening. She is prabably doing war work of some kind, and she won't feel that she should cut it 1 out just because it is Summer and she is having her share of guests. Help with the work if your hostess no longer has a maid. Even though you have always leafed before when you were at her house, she'll expect you to pitch in and do some of the work if she's on her own this Summer. Make your visit short. \ There aren't many women who will have enough time and energy left over this Summer from all their other duties to relish having guests for more than a few days at a time.
