Higher education is comparable to kissing; it is such an intrinsically satisfying and contenting life that few bother to examine it critically. WE WERE YOUNG, we were ignorant, we were careless, we were thoughtless; but at the same time in every one of us there was feeling that we were going forward, and sooner or later we would do something worth while. It takes time to grow up, but it happens to every one of us. AND NOW WE'RE starting to hear some of the results of the fuel conservation measures suggested by President Nixon. --In Oklahoma, a man slowed down to 50 miles per hour on a super freeway, and got a ticket for going too slow and holding up traffic. The guy told officers he was just doing what the President had asked, and he was told that the President didn't have anything to do with it. --In Clarendon and other towns, those who use Continental Trailways have been severely inconvenienced by the bus schedules. The bus company has ordered all buses to go 60 mph instead of the usual 70, and buses have been about 45 minutes late, none of them on schedule. Trailways says that the schedules will be back in order someday soon, when more buses are added to the fleet. Now, tell me this. If the buses save a little gasoline by slowing down, wont't those "additional buses" use a lot more gas? Sounds like Washington reasoning, doesn't it. The conservation measures will actually take more gasoline than the regular system. --Doctors are reporting that the suggested 68-degree temperatures may be unhealthy to many people. We turned down our thermostat at home to 69 for a short while, but nearly froze to death. We had to turn the electric blanket up to stand it. Used more electricity than the extra 7 degrees of heat would have used. I just don't think these conservation measures will work. There's most certainly an energy crisis. But our government needs to get down to the bottom of the cause of the crisis and cure the problem's cause rather than take little good-for-nothing measures that put us back in the 1940s. community and the church.
