An additional 8 to 10 per cent are considered strongly sympathetic to the "movement for social change" and "capable of temporary activation de student left. "Despite Its minority status, however, the radical student movement is having a very substantial impact, most importantly In recent months, on the nature of campus government" college and university administrators across the U.S. said. In an analysis of extensive questionnaires and compart- (Cl N.V.

But even on United States policy In Vietnam, the Issue found to be of greatest concern, active protesters averaged only about 5 per cent of the student bodies of the 860 campuses surveyed. The Students for a Democratic Society was seen as the principal organization of the Set your bourbon standards high sons with similar surveys In 1965, the researchers concluded: "If the movement can be sustained, and If ethical responsibility can prevail along with the great freedom sought by the students, the potential of the movement in time for the renewal of American life fairly staggers the Imagination." The study, based on the opinions of deans of students at 860 accredited four-year colleges and universities, was carried out by the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, N.J., one of the nation's leading nongovernmental, nonprofit test and research agencies, which prepares such national examinations as the College Board Tests. The survey was conducted by Richard E. Peterson, a research psychologist for the Educational Testing Service. Next to Vietnam, the issues most frequently protested during the last academic year were, in this order, dormitory rules, civil rights, and student participation in college government. In 1965, the leading issues were civil rights, campus food, and Vietnam, in that order. Issues pertaining to instruction, faculty and freedom of expression rarely evoked organized student activism. Where such issues arose, it was predominantly over inflexibility of the curriculum and quality of instruction. Civil rights activism among college students has declined significantly In the last three years, with white student activists leaving the prosecution of the "on-going civil rights revolution" to Negro activists. Though no such demands were recorded in 1965, black students are now Insisting that their colleges provide "educational experiences consistent with their new self-conception," often through study of Negro culture. Activism is more prevalent at the large public and independent universities than at smaller Institutions, and it is least pronounced at sectarian and such career-oriented colleges as teachers colleges. In his Interpretation of the findings, Peterson said: "Tactics of relentless pressure on many fronts to expose, modify, or eliminate unjust social patterns politicizing people in the process holds for this observer great promise." The study found that 38 per cent of all institutions surveyed had Vietnam demonstrations on their campuses last year, while 34 per cent had protests over dormitory regulations and 29 per cent over local, off-campus civil rights issues. "While the percentage of colleges having student left groups has almost doubled since 1965, from 26 per cent to 46 per cent, this student movement Is still a minority phenomenon," the report said. i Hiram-; b a. 3 H Merv Griffin Show SiaP Hiram Walker's Ten High Discover why so many people enjoy Ten High, a true Bourbon of acknowledged character and quality.
