Abstract "Brickbats and Bouquets," Lexington Minute Man, April 22, 1965

Mrs. Nathan Sokal, in response to a column written by Victor McCrossen, defends the education system both in Lexington and at places of higher learning.

Paul J. Drury defends the teaching of social studies on its own merit. Drury suggests that the tools and methods of education have improved over the decades. Drury finishes by suggesting that, without an understanding of social studies, one cannot understand or deal with Communism.

John L. Sampson writes a tongue-in-cheek reference to Vincent McCrossen. Sampson describes in detail the "Societas birchensis," a bird "which habitually leans as far as possible toward the right... It hates anything red, yet looks at the world through eyes that give everything a reddish tinge."
