  I very much enjoyed the article on the
two Rightwing student groups (October
Wisconsin, Alumnus)
  I have been an admirer and supporter
of YAF almost from its beginning, but I
had never heard of CDIR, and found the
article most interesting.
  I attended the U in the mid-thirties and
went out on every "Peace Strike", but all
we did was get out of one class period
and stand around. However, I do remem-
ber watching a parade (ROTC?) and yell-
ing "Down with capitalist wars!" I hardly
think we students would think of that on
our own!

  You are spoiling the image of my uni-
versity, not the spring demonstrators.
Please watch how you talk lest Wisconsin
end up with one of those neat, non-
controversial, non-academic reputations so
many of the states can boast for their
universities. As a Wisconsin editor, at an
institution built on progressive change,
you should show more sense of fair
  Because the Alumnus is consistently
biased in its reporting, forever waving an
out-of-mode flag and shows such distaste
for actions I would condone for the over-
all betterment of the university, I do not
wish to contribute further. Another year,

       I was pleased to read in the Oc-
tnher icene cAf the nsrtinn nf the rerents
in attempting to minimize classroom dis-
turbances by non-enrolled students. The
unfavorable reports which have been issued
by the national press about the University
and   its long-haired, unwashed rabble-
rousers has been most disturbing to me.
It is increasingly difficult for an alumnus
to place this element in its proper minor
perspective among critics of the University
which I encounter, when it seems that its
conduct is condoned, or at least ignored,
by administration. . . . I am hopeful that
when my son, aged 10, is ready to be
a "Mighty Badger", students will be adult
enough to realize that their function at
the University is the pursuit of knowledge,
not headlines.

  The article-interview (Aug.-Sept.) with
Dr. Halleck was excellent!
