Students in the War-Effort

Students in the War-Effort.

The University must become a vital part of the nation's war-effort. Already many students are away fighting; some have given their lives. Others are helping in Home Guard and E.P.S. These students are part of the University, putting into practice those concepts of freedom and right that they have acquired here. Our studies are no less part of the struggle. We may learn science to make the war-machine more effective technically; we may study arts to give the lead in social questions, to press for army education, for the better organisation of soldiers and civilians in the struggle. At the same time, those cultural values which are a vital part of the civilisation we are defending must be maintained.
