Letters Change Takes Time
The first letter to the editor complains that "critical letters to the editor, open discussions, and perverted views as presented in last year's Reflector and Reveille" are in inflammatory and make funding difficult. The writer goes on to say that the real issues are adequate parking, needing a new coliseum, and legalized liquor are more pressing issues than "oft-time revolting nonsense like the right to privacy, female and black equality, freedom of speech, and freedom of press" and urges his fellow students to ignore those things and focus on "good times" like parties, beer bursts, dating and football games. The second letter is a correction to the Sigma Omicron Tau having been referred to as a fraternity when they consider themselves more of a social club that is open to all races, creeds and sexes.
