In 1936 Princeton University produced the Veterans of Future Wars--a bold, clever satire on bonus-grabbing and incidentally on the futility of war.
Yesterday, a terrifying twenty-four hours of world conflict unlike anything in the experience of undergraduates five years ago, the undergraduates of Princeton University gave no evidence of resisting the tide of apathy and fatalism washing over the nation.
For one indication, there was no student interventionist organization on the Campus and only on (admittedly half-extinct) non-interventionist group. The lone articulate undergraduate body concerned with any phase of the war was the local chapter of the National Committee on Food for the Small Democracies.
Look at Harvard. Harvard University has six interventionist and three isolationist groups we know of, most of them actively engaged in considering the problems before America. On Tuesday a "Union Now" organization was launched. Perhaps Harvard, larger, more diverse, citified, makes poor comparing, but we maintain that the number and quality of such student activities are fair criteria of collegiate thinking. --Daily Princetonian.
