Three semester hour courses will
be changed to four or five hour

little straightening out.
A few students have declared that the time
is not ripe for "another drive" on the campus.
This feeling probably has grown from a misunderstanding of the function of the War Fund,
which had to be only hastily sketched Tuesday.
The War Fund is not "another drive"; in fact,
it is not a "drive" at all. The purpose of the
is to serve as a central gathering point for
donations-ocontributions from already organized campus groups. The source of these contributions will probably be affairs which the
groups will sponsor "for the War Fund."

Thus, instead of a club giving a function
"for national defense" it will give it "for the
War Fund." The money given to the War Fund
will be used after the war to give assistance to
students wishing to enter the University.
Some have said "well, it will just be another

the SGA worry about it." This is wrong. It will

SGA Should Be Left

Alone In Its Sphere
We agree with the statements made in Joe
Logan Massie's letter elsewhere on this page
that student government should not have control over financial matters of the University or
educational policy. Neither The Kfrxf.l editor
nor any SGA memler we know of has over suggested such a thing.
P.ut we belive that there are certain matters
which do come within the range of student government: student social affairs, disbursement of
Student Government Association fees, and a
considerable bit of student yvelfare and standards. In these fields, as long as it does not lower
student morals, affect the reputation of the University, or injure anv student, the SGA sJiould
work unmolested.

The proposed amendment did not. as we see
it. threaten anv of these things; it was drawn
up and passed in full accord with the constitution granted the SGA. Admitting that we overstated ourselves Friday in saying the faculty
"ox ei stepped its jurisdiction" we still think the
action

was unnecessary.

To Help Clear Up
Some Muddy Ideas
Behind much of the agitation against labor
and the
week during the past few weeks
have
misconceptions which have resulted in a serious misguidance of public opinion. Whether the press has sought to create these
misconceptions intentionally or not. we can not
say; but we do know that it has done little to
correct them.
The first is the impression that labor has tied
art defense production with frequent strikes.

(authority: Secretary of Iabor Perkins). At present, there is not
one strike in a defense industry (authority:
Wavne I.. Morse. War Labor Hoard).

r
he second misconception is that the
somehow keeps defense industries from
wot king at rapacity. The press and public opinion have insisted that industry lose not a minute
if production time, and on this we certainly
agree.
I'.ut it is not the 40 hour week which keeps

men out of factoiies. The
not limit the number of hours a man can work,
lie can woik 100 a week if he wants to. (For
the record. Secretary of Labor reports that even
in Januarv, six war industries averaged over 50
hours a week, and five more averaged over 45.)

A few have said they would prefer to donate
the profits from their affair to some cause more
worthy. We don't see how they could find any

cause which would combine service to the nation, through purchase of Defense Bonds, with
,
a very valuable service to the future of the
through the building up of a sizable fund
for student aid after the war.

On the whole, the War Fund has received
an early and enthusiastic response. We are confident that, as soon as the actual committee can
be organized and started functioning, the University Student War Fund will begin to assume
the proportions of the major organization which
it is destined to reach before the war is over.
If the men aie available, the
week will
not keep any plant from having enough men
io work it.
The real problem is this: should a man be
paid time and a half for work over 40 hours?
The derision is not whether plants should work
at capacity or not. but whether men who do extra work should get extra pay. It is the same
question to which Big Business has answered
Yes so loudly when it was put in regard to them:
should business get extra profits for increasing
r

production?
Since most of the government contracts have
already been let, and already have allowed for
week,
i he overtime
provisions of the
this charge has already been allowed for. The
question is then: " the workman does not get
this pay, where will it go?" And in most cases,
the answer would be "To the owners."

This brings up the third fallacy ol the

pub-

lic's view, this time in reference to the armv.
r
With all good intentions many a
writer has said "What about the armv?
Isn't the army working for $21 a month, 24 hours
a day, with nothing for overtime?" This statement is true, and the spirit behind it is admirable. God knows that the armv doesn't get anv
way near what it is worth. But that doesn't
change the situation in regard to labor a bit.
Decreasing the pay to a factory worker isn't
going to" raise the pay of an army man one cent.
Labor charges have already been included in
the prices charged the government, and decreasing the amount paid to the worker will not decrease the amount paid by the government. Ii
will just mean that the owners, not the workers,
will get it.
In the army, this
