Austin. Texas, Dec. 13 Jewish
refugees from Central Europe should
not be allowed to come into the
United States in great numbers, a
large majority of the college youth
of this country believes, the first
national poll of the Student Opin-.o- n
Surveys of America reveals.
In slightly more than a month
Germany has turned its Jews into
a world problem, one that may have
to be forced by leaders of tomorrow
college men and women of today.
Should the United States offer a
haven to the persecuted Jews? Although many thinic some should be
idmitted if other nations cooperate,
seven out of ten are opposed to
opening wide the doors of Ellis Island.

These figures are the first an
nounced by the new Student Opinion Surveys, organized with The
Kernel as one of the cooperating
members among college newspapers
over the nation. The surveys, a
organization
of
non - commercial
campus editors, will publish weekly'
reports based on national referenda
similar to those of other polls that
recently have been proved highly
reliable. The surveys are intended
to add a "fourth dimension" to the
college press by reporting scientifically national student thought.
Campus interviewers have approached students of every description rich and poor, freshmen
and seniors in big schools like
Columbia in New York and California at Los Angeles, and tn smaller schools like Luther in Iowa and
Schreiner In Texas. They have
asked. "Should the United States
offer a haven in this country for
Jewish refugees from Central Europe?"

"Get an education by all means, if you can,
but recognize its true purpose to lend vision,
power, and guidance to a mind that is trained
to do one thing exceedingly well."
One must assume by this statement that the
author refers to the majority of persons who
will be absolutely dependent upon their own
earning power. And the question is also raised
as to whether a mind can be called "trained" if
it hasn't been somewhat "educated." But there
is a distinction which many of us fail to recognize, and all in all it is good advice to college

students.

sities today.
According to the Student Opinion Surveys
e
of America, 68.8 per cent of our "students"
that the United State should not offer a
haven for Jewish refugees from Central Europe.
If the juesiion has been worded simply "offer
a haven for refugees," there would be no doubt
as to interpretation, but as it appears, there is a
definite slap at the Jewish race.
As Grovcr C. Hall, a Pulitzer prize winning
Gentile editor, questions: Why must we brand
a person as a "Jew" simply because we have
known one of his race that eats peas with a
knife? Why don't we say of our own murderers,
our fiends, our fools "Why. pay no attention to
him: he's a Gentile."

Jewish thinker turn Communist and we instantly hear it said by uncri-tita- l.
gullible Gentiles, 'Communism is a characteristic Jewish doctrine.' But in the same country it is the 'international Jewish banker,' often
an economic Tory, by all accounts, who has the
mark of Cain upon him. It would appear from

"Iet a frustrated
