TO BEGIN . . . A brief pause. Western Washington State College is entering it's 75th year of operation. The Diamond Anniversary could not have come at a more appropriate time. A new mood has entered campus life after colleges became the focus for much of the dissatisfaction and idealism that became the undercurrent for a shattered society. The 60's saw the birth of Fairhaven, The Evergreen State College and * experimental education. It also brought coed dorms, marijuana, LSD, long hair and distrust of authority. The traditional and different collided and students took a close look at themselves and the role they were to play in society (both at college and after graduation). There were many questions asked but few ready answers. Now, 1973, a chance to soak in at last the merits of education's most tumultuous years. So within this brief pause, (since education should never be static), comes a chance to look at the past, grumble about the present difficulties and contemplate the future and, at times, laugh at ourselves. This issue is dedicated to Western and hopes to offer a look at the goals of education which students and faculty have defined in everchanging terms.
