(AP) - After 16 months as a college teacher, former Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey says he's ready to give a passing grade to the vast majority of American students. By and large, he says, they are an active bunch, full of creative dissent and not willing to let a few "rebels of disorder" speak for all students. Humphrey, who will be 59 next Wednesday, talked in an interview of his fling as a "politician in residence" at Macalester College and the University of Minnesota, where he has been a part-time teacher of international relations since January 1969. Hard Lin* He is expected to relinquish that line soon and announce U.S. .Senate from Minnesota, prooabw on June 13. Humphrey takes a hard line against any violence on college jampuses--whether by students or government authorities. He does not condone ei her the killings of students in Ohio and Mississippi, or the student disorders that brought in loaded weapons. "I think one thing we have to learn is that the use of firearms in civil disturbances can only be justified in the most extreme circumstances," he said. "I also think there's a tendency to overuse our Nalio" Guard in circumstances for which they're not fully trained. Now, this is not to'justify at all the violence of the handful who were throwing things and engaging in obscenities."

James 1:12. H a n d l i n g Waste Water One of the most pressing questions in the area of water pollution is the disposal of waste water. Vast amounts of water flow from power plants and factories throughout the nation. Handling it after use is not always an easy matter. One promising' method is illustrated at Paris, Tex., a small city in the northeastern part of the state. There the Campbell Soup Co. dispels its surplus water into sprinklers covering some 500 acres of grassland. The system is the result of careful planning. Preparations for the development were started a decade ago. Erosion gullies were filled, waterways installed, slopes remodeled to assure a uniform flow. Today the overland flow of water is said to cost about five cents per 1,000 gallons. The daily treatment capacity is 3.6 million gallons. Louis C. Gilde, director of environmental engineering for the company, say? of the project: "We spent several years preparing the site for the spray irrigation system, and we estimate that careful preplanning has resulted in conservation of almost 500 acres of land, together with the release of high quality water in a semi-arid area." Such undertakings on a wide scale would contribute significantly to solution of a growing national problem. vhen authorities overreact to sors here. hem. As a teacher, Humphrey ap- oears satisfied that he has accomplished what he was hired o do. Reaction to his role as a irofessor has been mixed, among both s'.udents and other 'acuity members. Humphrey describes himself as a "lightning rod" who tends o attract reactions of various :inds, but he is proud of the fact hat none of his classes has been disrupted by protesters of any sort. A few weeks ago, some dissidents strung barbed wire across iis office entrance. He was out of the country at the time, and other students cleared it away. Humphrey admits to being an unabashed name-dropper in his ectures. They are loaded with anecdotes. Names like Kosygin, Khrushchev and De Gaulle flow endlessly. "N»mt Dropper" "Now, I try to give them in my courses only that which I lave experienced myself," Humphrey says. "I do not try to take over the responsibilities of "I'm a name-dropper because I know the people," he says. Humphrey -reads and grades student papers himself--"I get smarl doing it." His courses, he says, are loosely structured so students can write about any facet of his over-all subject. He has cautioned student militants against anarchy with this illustration: "When Apollo 13 was in trouble up there in outer space, there were several things the astronauts didn't do and some things they did do. "The first thing they didn't do was have a riot--they didn't say the system is all bad so lei's junk it, because that's the only system Ihey had. They tried to make it work." Reaclion to Humphrey among students appears mixed. Some have enjoyed his insights into personal dealings with world leaders. Others say they find his style boring. All his students agreed to complete their work, Humphrey said. When he began early last year, Humphrey'ran into grumbling from supporters of Sen. Eugene J. McCarthy, D-Minn., who had seen their idol defeated by Humphrey for the Democratic presidential nomination. Quick to Dtfend Some had been in Grant Park in Chicago. Humphrey was not their-favorite political figure. Humphrey was quick to defend nonviolent dissent by McCarthy supporters and others. "Legitimate dissent is the fuel of change," he says. "We've been a dissenting people. The only thing that one cannot condone is outright violence and the destruction of life or properly. 1 ' He adds: "A college campus ought to be a place that is a safe haven for any idea. It ought to be a place where we can examine even the most unorthodox idea or ideas without fear of reprisal or without fear of intimidation. "But a college campus musl have rules of conduct that lent themselves lo reason, and lo dialogue, and lo communicatiot . . . not lo dialribe, dogma anc demagoguery ..."

The Humane Society of Weld County has been reorganized, with both immediate and long-range goals contemplated. Mayor Perchlik and Humane Officer Leonard Morehead met recently with the executive committee of the Humane Society to discuss the most pressing needs regarding operation of the pound. An office is badly needed: the accommodations for cats are wretchedly inadequate, and animals deposited in the outside cages while the pound is closed are not protected from disturbance, rebellion? No--for achievement in education.

And his insistence that small nations can defeat big powers in protracted conflict was, in effect, a signal to the Indochinese communists to rely on themselves.
