Never Too Early
Next weekend is still a long way off, but the incidents
of the one just past are still on our minds.
And foremost among these incidents should be the ac
cidents that almost took the lives of three of our fellow stu
It’s never too early to talk about safety on the highway,
or on the campus or city streets. Nor can one say enough
about the need to be on constant guard against the unex
pected—that which happens to the “other fellow.” And,
remember, you are the “other fellow” to the drivers of other
automobiles on the road. We have rules to guard against
deliberate chance-taking by drivers; we have perfunctionary
inspections to check our automobiles—but we have no way
of guarding against the momentary carelessness that can
mean life or death on the highways and streets of our state.
It is realized, of course, that “perfect” safety on our
roads is an ideal, probably impossible, to strive for. But as
someone aptly said: “Ideals remain real only when one con
tinues to realize them.”

Today’s Borrowed Thoughts
THE WORST SERVANT of a democracy is the man who obeys
the people because he fears them. In his deference to the opinion of
others he surrenders his own, and if his example were followed by
everyone, the opinion of a democracy would degenerate into little more
than timid conventionality. The true democrat does not obey the
people; he regards himself as one of the people, with the democratic
privilege of having a mind of his own. He never pretends that the
majority is necessarily right; he knows that courageous minorities are
the very soul of a democracy.
This is why there has arisen the cuilous paradox that many of the
best leaders of democracies have had to fight the majority all their
lives. Had they not done so, they would have been little more than
sheep, and a flock of sheep is not the symbol of a free people. It is
the man who stands against the dead uniformity of opinion and breaks
it up with some fresh current of ideas, who really creates a situation in
which real opinion is possible.
