TUESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 19-19 University Paper Hits Eisenhower Columbia Student Publication Takes President to Tusk NEW YORK. Dee. 6. (AP)-Columbia University's student newspaper has opened up with some caustic comments about the university's president, Gen. Dwight D. Ei.fen- hower. In an editorial yesterday. "The Columbia Daily Spectator" ' leveled It.s mam (ire at a speech Eisonhow- *fr made last week before the St. ^hnrtrew's Society at the Waldorf- Astoria Hotel. "If^ the speech was a trial balloon." the newspaper said, "we think public reaction will soun flatten It." The general, iu me speech, said he thought to much emphasis was being placed on personal security at tiie expense of individual liberty. He was caroled as saying that perhaps people wanted fltainpagne when they should have "hot dogs and beer." The student editorial commented- 'Being content with beer and hut doss has never-been part ol the American tradition we know. The njie we know assures any citizen that he may some day eat clutin- pasne and caviar, and in She White House at that. We don'i know, of course, but we are willing to bet beer and hot dogs weren''l on the menu at the Waldorf-Astoria Wednesday night, cither." Seek Other Securities The editorial said ''we gather the general believes the American people are unduly olj.se3.sed with a desire for security to the detriment of their personal liberties." The paper added that protection from foreign a-JSie.--.sors "is only one kind of security." "The American people have and still do seek other securities," the ^editorial said For one thing, it .,aid, Whey want continued security ngainst the type of economic liberty which frustrated for so long minimum wage and hour legislation, the formation of labor unions, collective bargaining and which still denies the federal government the means for regulating child labor. "F'or another thing. Americans today want security against [hat type of liberty exercised by srate and federal loyalty review boards.
