By EUGENE GILBERT The fast, competitive pace of today's world has given a college education an increasi n g importance in our society. And With good reason. In many professions, young men and women cannot even get starting positions without college diplomas. In others, lack of a degree can stifle advancement. But there is another side to the story. Some educators feel that many students are being asked to do too much in the intense quest for high grades. Not all students, they say, should be expected to go to college. Whether they do or not, these educators add, some method should be devised to remove the competitive features, of educat i o n, through elimination, of marks or grades as we\ know- them. While experiments are under way in this direction, we decided to find but what students have to say about the matter. To the direct question, "Do you think there is too much pressure on you?," nearly 68 per cent of the 1251 teen-agers surveyed said "yes." Those who gave an affirmative answer then were asked, "In what'way:". More than 94 per cent said they were under constant pressure to get .better grades. Some of them also felt too much was expected of them in extra-curricular work and in activities having no connection with school. But those who held these impressions were insignificant in number compared to the overwhelming majority who named better grades as the area of strong pressure. • The next question brought a strong indication that parents are more concerned about the education of their sons than their daughters; The quest! o n: "What seems to exert these pressures?" Sixty five per cent of the students said it was their parents. Sixty three per cent said it was their teachers. Some named both, accounting for the percentage over 100. Now, here's the oddity: 98 per cent of the boys said the pressure came from their parents, compared with only 50 per cent of the girls! The boys placed the blame on their teachers only 48 per cent of the time; the girls did so 70 per cent of the time. Is there a solution? Surprisingly, many students (including 'some who said there was too much pressure) thought the solution was within themselv e s As Bobby Long, 18, of W i 1 iam- ston, N. C., put it: "There is only one way to solve it—that is, for me to start studying and achieving better grades." Paula Baker, 17, of Glen- wood, Iowa, had a diffe rent idea. She said, "They should lei us do what we are able to do and what they think we can do.'* Sixteen-y e a r-old Bradl e jj Schmayer, of Allentown, Pa., suggested "taking solid classei and more discipline." Doug Porter, 14, of Edgemontj"S. D., thought "teachers shouldn't push so hard on reading assignments and. tests and grades." Also 14 year old, Mi c h a e 1 White, of Miami, Flai, said there should be less homework with listening more and working hard in class." Marilyn Hensley, 18, of Shelburn, Ind., wanted "more freedom between classes to relax." Jean Nahadate, a 15-year- o 1 d from Portland, Ore., said: "Parents and schools should not stress grades as much as ability and effort." From Arlyn Hanle, 16, of Little Rock, Ark., came this comment: "I think all extra-curricu 1 a r activities during the school week should be cut out, and parents and teachers should realize that we really try to do our best and- that's all we can possibly do." List of Subversive Organizations Cut .WASHINGTON (AP)—Of the 274 organizations listed as subversive by the attorney general's office in 1955. only 21 are still believed active. The dwindling of the active list was disclosed by J. Walter Yeagley, an assistant attorney general, in testimony before a House subcommittee March 4, The testimony was made publio Monday. The list hasn't been changed since it was prepared as a guide for federal government hiring officials. Among those still listed are the Communist party and tha Ku Klux Klan.
