Barry Accuses Democrats
Of Strengthening Enemies
Target Date Is
End Of October
Asst. News Editor
Students who have reservations for Dorm 14, 15 and 16
might be able to move in by the end of October and no later
than the middle of November, Dean of Students James P.
Hannigan said Tuesday.
“There are two ways we are considering moving the
students to these dorms,” Hannigan said.
1. “We could move students into their rooms whenever
are turned over to us and are inspected and approved.”
2. “If we do not move students into each wing separate
ly, then we will just have a ‘mass migration’ after the dorms
are turned over to us and are inspected and approved.
The delay in opening these dorms was caused by a delay

Sen. Barry Goldwater, of Ari
zona, saying Soviet and Chinese
Communists now are exchanging
cordial messages, accused the Dem
ocratic administration Tuesday
night of an “insane policy of
strengthening an enemy who has
vowed to bury us.”
“We hear the explosion of an
atomic device in Communist China
—and we do not know how much
the Soviets had to do with it,” the
Republican presidential candidate
In remarks for a rally in this my out of a serious economic crisis
suburb of Baltimore, he added:
“Where is the disunity of the Com
munist world ? What has happened
to the split between the Chinese
and the Soviets ? Where is the
benefit of the so-called test-ban
treaty ? ”
Goldwater accused President
Johnson of what he called the
“fatal mistake” of believing that
Nikita Khrushchev, the fallen Sovi
et premier, was “a good Commu
nist'^ and a friend to this country.
“We bailed our Communist ene-
Students’ Creativeness Key
To Inspiration From Course
“I hope you have found this
course to be an inspiration for you,
for it was really meant to be one,”
said Dr. H. O. Kunkel as he deliv
ered the second speech in the “Last
Lecture” series Monday night in
the YMCA.
Kunkel, associate director of the
Agricultural Experiment Station,
outlined an imaginary course be
fore he began his last lecture. The
course coming to a close was one
in the biological or physical
sciences, he said.
When a course draws to a close,
“both the instructor and the stu
dent wish the other had done bet
ter. The instructor feels the stu
dent could have studied more and
the student thinks the course would
have been better if it had suited
the interest of the instructor
more,” Kunkel told about 40 stu
dents present.
Stating that creativity is a com
bination of dreaming and logical
reasoning, he said, “Each of you
can be creative, too.”
“I hope you find something be
yond what the instructor and the
textbook have to say in any future
course you take and that you find
the course to be an inspiration,”
Kunkel concluded.
Next week’s speaker for the
“Last Lecture” series will be R. L.
Whiting, head of the Department
of Petroleum Engineering. This
series will be held at 6 p.m. each
Monday through Nov. 2 in the
YMCA Building.
with that wheat deal and with
other aid,” Goldwater said.
“It was bad enough to count
on personal diplomacy to solve the
problems of a clash of systems.
But worst of all was the insane
policy of strengthening an enemy
who has vowed to bury us . . . we
must now confront the possibility
of an enemy reunfied and strength
ened by our own policy of aid.”
Sen. Hubert H. Humphrey of
Minnesota charged Tuesday that
Barry Goldwater is “not a fit
spokesman for an American polit
ical party and added., “I think I
am a better Republican than he is.”
The Democratic vice presidential
nominee, portraying Goldwater as
a radical rather than a Republican,
said he himself had voted more
times for former President Dwight
D. Eisenhower’s defense and na
tional security programs than had
the present GOP presidential can
“I' think if I was a Republican
carrying a Goldwater sign, I’d hang
my head in shame,” said Humphrey
at an outdoor rally to a crowd of
about 3,000.
Humphrey noted the swift chang
es in the world scene—the changes
of governments in Moscow and
London and the Red Chinese trig
gering a nuclear device. He said,
“These three historic events illus
trate the basic issue of the cam
furnishings from suppliers.
“All major construction is
completed in the area and the
only thing holding us up is a
little interior work to be finished
soon and receiving the items to be
placed on the walls of the dorms,”
Hannigan said.
Students who were to use the
new dorms were temporarily placed
in Mitchell Hall, Milner Hall and
Dorms 1, 3, 9, and 12. All Mitchell
residents will be transferred to
Dorm 15, while the others will
occupy Dorm 14 and 16.
“Whenever everything is ready
for students to move, we will pro
vide help to students who do not
have any means of transportation
by having vehicles to transport
their belongings for them,” Han
nigan said.
“To counteract the parking prob
lem expected, students will be al
lowed to park in the Law Hall
lot,” he added.
“All students who paid for air-
conditioned room but had to be
moved because of incompleted
dorms will receive a refund for the
time they spent in the non-air-con
ditioned dorms,” he said.
The three dormitories will ac
comodate approximately 768 stu
“All students who did not re
quest air-conditioned rooms but
have changed their minds may ap
ply for a room after the first ap
plicants are moved in, if there are
any vacancies,” Hannigan said.
