    “ Do not judge the college student of today by the standards of yesterday,” saysJOHN S. DICKEY, President of Dartmouth since 1945. “ Remember that he is different, faced with graver issues than we were a generation ago, more responsible in his decisions, and much more lonely.” President Dickey graduated from Dartmouth with the class of 1929 and from the Harvard Law School three years later. He practiced law in Boston, served in the State Department over an eleven-year period, and taught foreign affairs before returning to his alma mater. His findings in this article will be stimulating and reassuring to many parents.
