Package of 10 inserts Jl.Take this ad to Ford-Hopleios Drug Store for your packaged LIBERTIES By NORA PAREDES United Press Staff Correspondent Los Angeles, (U,R)--College students aren't too sure just what hey are fighting for--a bare ma- orily thinks it is, but a danger- lusly high minority admits it isn't --a student opinion poll at the University of Southern California revealed. The poll, patterned after the 3almp cross-section method o£ :abulating public opinion, was aboratory work for Dr. W. L. iindman's political science class n public opinion. It was probably the first of its kind taken on a college campus. In the sample or cross-section of the student body polled by student interviewers on various national and local questions, a bare 58 per cent majority stated they knew what they were fighting (or, 42 per cent frankly said they did not know and would like to be told. Two cross-sections or polls were taken as safeguards to each other and involved 224 students from representative groups of men college class, naval trainee, civilian, and fraternity and non-fraternity, classifications. United Slates war aims are primarily material--economic sovereignty of this country -- the 51 per pent who knew what they were fighting for indicated when questioned more closely and spe ideally. The other two-thirds were vague and when finally tinned down fell back on "mak- nc the world safe for democracy." More than three-quarters--76 per cent--did not know what consumer subsidies were, but only 49 per cent admitted their ignorance ·n the poll's 2 questions on the issue being debated at Washington at the time. The first consumer subsidy query asked whether the student favored the program, and 49 per cent admitted they did not know. A majority of the 29 per cent favoring consumer subsidies were non-sorority 'and non-fraternity students, while the majority of the 22 per cent opposed were organized students. A second question farther along in the questionnaire asked a definition of consumer subsidies, and here only 24 per cent could give a reasonably correct answer. The rest --· some of whom had been violently opposed to the issue in the first question--could give no coherent answer or definition. More of this discouraging unawareness of current issues by college students was evidenced in the definitions of the Four Freedoms--only 40 per cent could enumerate them. Fourteen per eent produced 3 freedoms. 22 could name 2, 6 remembered one, and 18 per cent admitted complete ignorance. One student, at a loss but desirous of making a good impression regardless, came forth quickly with (1) life, (2) liberty, and (3) the pursuit, paused and finished triumphantly with (4) of happiness. Naval trainees, the poll revealed, kept their emotions pretty well controlled and overwhelmingly favored the return of avowedly loyal Japanese to the west coast. Of the total polled, 57 per cent agreed with the navy boys, 33 per cent said no, and 10 per cent did not know. Non-sorority and non-fraternity s t u d e n t s seemed to favor the return more so than did the "Greeks." Strangely enough, college students--at least those at USC--do not want to vote any sooner than theji have to, the poll revealed when only 25 per cent favored lowering the voting age to 18. Seventy-four per cent flatly rejected the proposition and 1 per cent did not know. Some of those opposed to 18 year old voting ventured an explanation .smacking of property qualifications. A student at IS does not know the responsibility and tax-paying, they felt.

Coe Commencement Set for Sunday Afternoon Cedar Rapids --Commencement exercises for Coe college will be held at 3:30 p. m. Sunday in Sinclair Memorial chapel.

It is in Reno and a softly falling, feathery whiteness covers each branch and twig. Nothing, of all the many beautiful things God has given us, is more lovely than a snow-covered world. After a number oC years of rainy winters, the snow seems more wonderful than ever. Yes, there are disadvantages but try 2 solid weeks of rain, day and night and there are a few pleasanter things you can anticipate. Snowing or raining often means low flame ui one has to plan to boost the mor- formed, ale a bit and what can be nicer Beat the than a buffet supper for the shut in group. That kind of supper can be such fun if everyone is allowed to help but do plan to make everything simple and as little trouble as possible. Start early enough to bake some potatoes. A lot of other things may be prepared while they are * u lo ." in the oven. A pan of apples can squaies. be tucked in, too, and the dessert will be ready. Cook some sausages in a skillet, covered, and a little water added. When the potatoes are soft, which will take almost an hour at 400 degrees, remove a thin slice from one side, scoop out and mash. Season well and fill potato shells. Top each w i t h 2 precooked sausages, pressing down slightly in the potato. Place under the broiler until potato and sausage are slightly browned. In the meantime have some of the helpers making a salad of chopped or shredded cabbage, diced celery and grated carrots. If you have not baked apples use 2 or 3 apples, chopped in the salad. Mix with mayonnaise or your favorite dressing for cabbage salad. Melba toast may be prepared in the hot oven, spread with grated cheese, reheated a n d served with jam or jelly. Cocoa, topped with marshmallows or hot coffee are, of course, a required accompaniment. If this is not to be "a spur of the moment" affair but a planned buffet supper there are many things that can be ready with little trouble. Baked beans are a stand by and can be cooking hours before time. Chinese food, if liked, is excellent for a buffet meal. A new combination of egg foo yong and sweetened chili sauce,-which none of us had eaten before may appeal as it did to a group at "The Mandarin Inn 11 a few nights ago. Egg Foo Y o n g Is simply scrambled eggs, chopped onion and salt and pepper. The Chinese part comes in the sauce. ' Sweetened Chili Sauce Cook 2 coarsely cut-up medium sized onions in a small amount of water u n t i l transparent but not soft, seasoned with salt to taste. Add 1 cup chili sauce and 2 tablespoons (or more) sugar. 2 tablespoons peanut or other cooking oil. Mix 2 tablespoons corn starch with A tablespoons water and stir into the mixture. Cook over low heat until thickened. Add as much Soy Sauce as desired and serve over the egg or any other of the Chinese djshes. Of course with Chinese food you will serve noodles or rice, or both and plenty of tea. You may be sure that cookies whenever food is planned. Try the following. Baked Fudge 2 ounces chocolate. ^i cup milk 2 eggs 1 cup sugar \'z cup fjour 1/2 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon vanilla 1 cup nut meats 1/3 cup butter, melted Cut the chocolate into pieces anc put it with the milk in a smal sauce pan.

PRICE CONTROL PLAN PRAISED Claim Living Costs on Same Level 11 Months Washington, (/P)--Price Administrator Chester Bowles told congress Wednesday there had been no increase in the American living cost level Tor the last 11 months and that if the present price control act is extended without substantial change "inflation during the war 'will be prevented." Further, he said, the nation would be able to come out of the conflict with "a sound and balanced price structure." . In the first public hearing on legislation to continue the office of price administration for one year beyond June 30, Bowles said OPA had had some faults. Bu1 he contended that pi-ice contro: had fully proved its worth and had held the living cost rise this war to less than half the over-all increase during World war I. He testified before the senate banking committee. "This committee will understand that neither I nor any man can stand here and defend each one of the 8 million prices (fixec by OPA) as being perfectly anc justly set." Bowles said. "But I do say that the record shows lha price control has been effective. "After 53 months of World wa , 1 the cost of living was up 65 | per cent. In January of this yea I 53 months after Aug.. 1039. tlv 1 cosl of living had risen only 26 per cent. i "There is no question but tha prices have been stabilized. Then has been no increase at all in thi living cost level in the last 1 months." Obviously having in mind th expected move to attach an anti food subsidy rider to the OPA extension measure, Bowles as sorted subsides had played a par in holding living costs on an eve; keel, stating there had been steady rising prior to their use. GIVE VETERANS EDUCATION AID Colleges Will Remove Obstacles of Routine Iowa City--Colleges have an obligation to war veterans, who already have lost an important period of their lives, to remove [rom their educational path any routine obstacles to their advancement at maximum capacity. This is one of the thoughts or President Virgil M. Hancher'or the University oE Iowa, expressed in an article in The American Oxonian. Veterans' time should not be consumed by curricula!' requirements which either are incomprehensible on one hand or unnecessary on tlie other. Time will be a precious commodity to those who have spent one to 4 years in service," he said. President Handier believes that many veterans will have a maturity o£ outlook, breadth and depth of knowledge, and an experience of life which cannot be wholly ignored. It is the duty o£ the colleges to translate these into the equivalent of college work, thereby laying the groundwork for a revised attitude tosvard undergraduate and adult education. "They will resent and resist any duplication of work or any regulation "or device which keeps hem from moving forward at their naximum capacity. They will ex- )ect credit for work done else- vhcre at the college level and will ;xuect chances for self-directed tudy in courses only partly competed in the armed services," 'resident Hancher writes. University of Iowa already has made plans to grant certain credit o former service men. In this connection, President Hancher advocates a more general recognition of the fact that an education can e achieved outside of formal institutions. "Heretofore, there has been ·cluctance to grant credit for an achievement unless it was done within the academic pattern and routine. This has deterred those outside the college boundaries from seeking to educate them- 1 1 selves and it has convinced the undergraduate that his education necessarily must stop on the day he leaves college," the president Schmedika Files for State Representative Iowa Falls --William Schmed- ika announced he will seek the nomination for the office of state representative from H a r d i n county. He was a member of the house in 1914-15. and was a state senator from 1923-26. He is the only independent democrat who has been a senator from the :i7tli senatorial district. He has been a candidate for the office of representative several limes, sometimes as a democrat and sometimes as a republican. He has farmed near Iowa Falls for a umber of years.
