ON OTHER CAMPUSES
(Oregon Daily Emerald)
SomeVf the highly combustable Lindsey tinder has
flared up at the University of California at Los Angeles.
A vagrant spark, in the form of the Portland report
of a "Revolt of Youth" lecture, published in the daily
Bruin, caused the conflagration. Regent Edward Dickson
has ordered the Bruin hermetically sealed in hope of
suffocating the incipient blaze.
As editor of the Los Angeles Express, Mr. Dickson
should be qualified to pass judgment on the impropriety
of news. .And as former editor of the Daily Californian,
he should know the just scope of college papers.
regent of the university he considers Judge Lindsey'a
views on youth unfit for campus consumption.
All this is easily explained, but Mr. Dickson's
remedy is far more dangerous than the evil which he
attempts to stamp out
He tampers with democratic
student administration and establishes with one gesture,
He usurps authority from the Bruin
editor and takes advantage of regental privilege to

Criticism, advice, suggestions all these
could be freely bestowed with benefit to student publication from the sagacity of long professional experience.
But the satisfaction of a peremptory command is not
legitimately obtained by the overhead route.
Any despotic control, no matter how benign, is
inimical to the fairest and most truthful news treatment
Such control robs the paper of all initiative.
