inconsistent with
College's ideals
    Davidson's Christian commitment originally sought to
preserve priceless truths born in ages past. The reasoning was
that to inculcate good old Judeo-Christlan virtues was to
invest in our nation's moral and spiritual future. Given the
events of the past week, however, the time for reconsideration
has come. We must now examine carefully the implications of

charged with the grave and delicate responsibility for teaching
individuals the value of the "moral" life. Obviously, the desire
to promote Truth and Beauty is unimpeachable—no one in
their right mind would consider thumbing his (or her) nose at
Goodness. On the other hand, it is reasonable to ask whether
or not the exclusion of alternative religious opinions, if only
embedded deeply within the psyche of the pedagogue, can
possibly achieve that commitment. The assertion that others

    The students who make up the
wxirdinating bureaucracy of the Un-
ion often seem to forget that they are
not appointed to do a job, but rather
it is in their self-interest for learning
the job that they became elected.
   There is nothing among with desire
and self-interest, but it should be
recognized as such so as not to
obstruct the ideal actions and goals of
a Union. One of the most dishearten-
ing things is how hard it is for a stu-
dent to break into this bureaucracy.
    There are many funds (funds
meaning here that it came from either
our mother's pockets or scholarships)
that the Union misuses.
   The students who are in the
bureaucracy have a duty to respect

how these funds are used.
   An example: in the fall of 1976, the
two vice presidents' discretionary
funds of the Union (funds totaling
$1500) were given to help pay for the
big TV screen in the Union.
    To my knowledge, the students
were not contacted or asked if they
 wanted their money used this way.
