ABSTRACT
The article focuses on various socio-political developments related to the U.S. U.S. junior-class delegate Stan Feinstein's motion to have LIU award a plaque to the man or woman in the U.S. who has done most to aid academic freedom was voted down after a spirited discussion. In another development, when the intrinsic impact of a great deal of daily war news is no longer available, Roy Roberts, editor of the Kansas City (Mo.) Star, remarked, "The literary quality of newspaper writing must of necessity be higher."
