Title

Opinion "It's a Good Thing to be on Both Sides of the Fence, But-"

Description

This column discusses many different issues present in the 1920s. It asks questions such as, "What is your opinion of Soviet Russia? What is your attitude regarding German reparations? Where do you stand on prohibition and law enforcement? Are you opposed to the Ku Klux Klan--the City Manager plan of municipal government--the bond issue in Virginia?" It follows with University of Richmond specific questions: "Where do you stand--or do you stand--on the question of the control of The Messenger, voluntary chapel attendance, cutting classes, clean campus politics, the usefulness of the campus Y.M.C.A, cheering at the various varsity games adn the budget?" It ends by warning readings that it may be good to be on both sides of the fence, "but suppose the fence has a barbed wire strand at the top?"
