Think Seriously A question of importance has been placed before the students of Longwood, one which will affect them in various ways. A wise decision should DC made. The Students Standards Committee has proposed that in order that those people who wish to sleep, study, or have quiet maintained for any reason may have this quit i period from 8 p. m. on each Monday through Friday night withoul the distractions of a 10 p. m. bell or meetings scheduled at 10 p. m. The suggested system seems to present many advantages for the students of Longwood. If such a quiet period were effected, any student who was unable to complete

studies or teaching plans in the two hours now granted would not have to stop her WOTh for I noise-tilled hour, only to try

(perhaps vainly) to pick it up an hour later. Sonic few, lucky enough to linis'i work early, and others who need rest because of illness or late hours the nijrht before, would be able to go to .sleep early if a quiet hour were introduced. Often the pniod from 10 to 11 p. Dl. takes away a much-needed hour of rest because of noise.

Another advantage Of the system pro-

Give Freely On a college campus where there seems always to be some group, organization, or drive pleading frantically for financial aid, il is quite understandable that the students often develop an antagonistic, or at least a passive attitude toward the causes for whicfa they are continually being asked to donate their badly need, d money. It seems indeed unfortunate that there is so great a number of financial drives that their philanthropie nature is often o'oscured when \iewcd through the eyes of students who art- necessarily mercenary. During the Red Cltws drive that is being held this week, it will be all too easy I'or Longwood Students, unless they really vive the cause of the drive serious thought, to .simply forget to drop a bit of change into one of the many boxes that will be placed in convenient places. Some lew students, however, to whom the Korean (or some other) crisis is particularly, often even tragically, close, may realize that had mole people given more lieely to previously he".I Red Cross drives, there would certainly haw been fewer deaths of wounded soliders due to lack of good medical aid, and fewer losses in the many national tragedies such as Hoods and mass wrecks that have been aided to the fullest possible degree by the Red Cross.

In a country tha boast of democratic practices, as well as principles, surely one of the most admirable and essential attributes that a citizen may produce is that (,f caring for and looking after any fellow citizen whom misfortune has befallen. O. |J 1.1 3Wj ilCsUIIn! With
