Up... Wfth CAMBRIDGE ANTI-RAPE PATROL , READY TO PROTECT GIRL STUDENTS ' - - " . " ; . " -'- · - ' flP|WBv^Mpv J^«^P^WIMB^6 ' . · · ' . . · . ' . · - - . . Mote undergraduates at Cambridge University in Enghnd, where there have been seven rapes in the last seven months, have organized anti- rape patrols to comfort frightened ' . The v^^ as follows: Prospective recruits are solicited. via posters circulated around Com- bridge University. The posters read, "Please help. What may be a slight inconvenience to you may be alife saver for some girl" 'After the r ecruits are checked out., they re sent in- pairs, earn/ing their 'sleeping bags, to protect the honor of the Cambridge maidens. So far the female undergraduates at Cambridge University are overjoyed by their chivalrous knights. Reports one girl: "It's very reassuring to have two hefty men sleeping in your lounge." The female students are not the only ones who are frightened. David Malin, aged 20, spent the night on a couch in an apartment shared by two 20-year- old females. He unashamedly admits, "I was frightened and tense att night because this is no joke-- the girls in this city are scared stiff." Come September, American univer- sitieslocatedin high crime areas might consider instituting a similar "deepen" program. ,'\ · ·· . . . . ' " · /.,/' '·"·"; "... I think what's going to have to be done in the next three or four years is for everyone, but especially for the students who are just entering the world, to reevaluate the whole position in this country that we're facing in regard to what we do for money and what money will buy and what money won't .buy'.../ . ; . . . . . · ' - .

Money, this year, can buy you, at present, all of the gas you want, and you can drive as wastefuHy as ever. This will not be true in the future, and we're not going to have enough energy, and we're going to have to think in terms of energy units instead of in terms of money.... ".;.You're not graduating at a period when your only problem will be to decide which jobs you're going to take and with Very little thought and Very little discrimination. You're also not graduating at a period when everybody is so beastly rich that the only thing that you can do is go and live in a commune. ... But you are graduating in a period when we're going to have to learn a whole series of new things. We're going to have to learn that the answers we thought would save the worid---at the end of World War II we thought we just had to spread our technology all over the worid; everybody would have plenty to eat and lovely skyscrapers and schools just like ours and the whole world would be saved--and we've discovered it doesn't work like that and that if we tried to spread our technology over the whole world we'd simply devastate the world. We'd cut down every tree, we'djuse up every single resource and we'd leave a desert "And so we have to learn something new, and if s going to be rough. But you are the ones that have to ask the questions, you are the ones that have come in with fresh eyes, most of you haven't . tried to live with total responsibility in this world and so you're going to have a chance to look at the situation fresh while the older people in rt are doing our best to readjust our sights, to reassess the hopes that we had, to realize, that we have to change the way in which we are building life up, change it very radically and very responsibly and that ifs possible/' .
