Senator Fulbright Analyzes Duty of Dissens in His New Book

Senator J. William Fulbright, as
chairman of the U. S. Senate For-
eign Relations Committee, is not
only one of the very powerful men
in the upper legislative body: he
has emerged as a critic of many
of America's policies and as a
guide in numerous governmental
policies.
A number of his valuable ex-
pressions on for-
eign policy are PZ
contained in "The
Arrogance of
Power" which
Viking Press has
published a s a
'Vintage B o ok
T h e paperback

ries of lectures

Because these lectures are
not only evaluations of the past
but also expressions of concern
about America's future, "The
Arrogance of Power" is a sig-
nificant work to be read by all
Americans.

Senator Fulbright expresses con-
cern over dissent, the right to dis-
sent and the fear of it. He calls
intolerance of dissent "a well-
noted feature of the American na-
tional character." He states inter
alia:
"The discharge of the duty of
dissent is handicapped in America
by an unworthy tendency to fear
serious criticism of our govern-
ment. In the abstract we celebrate
freedom of opinion as part of our
patriotic liturgy; it is only when

In his discussion of foreign aid,

"The transformation of ec-
onomic aid from a national char-
ity, and an instrument of cold
war competition, to an interna-
tional responsibility would put
an end to the peculiar and cor-
rosive tyranny which donor and
recipient seem to exercise over
each other in bilateral relation-
ships. Aid would be converted to
a community responsibility char-
acterized by continuity, predict-
ability and dignity for all par-
ties. The economic development
of the poor nations of the world
would be treated for the first
time as an end in itself, insulat-
ed from international political
rivalries and internal political
pressures. Instead of being a
weapon in the ancient and dis-
credited game of power politics,
aid would become, like educa-
tional exchange, a means for
changing the nature of the game,
for civilizing it and for adapting
it to the requirements of sur-
vival in the nuclear age."

that "we make ourselves the friend

"Power has a way of undermin-
ing judgment, of planting delusions
of grandeur in the minds of other-
wise sensible people and otherwise
sensible nations," Senator Fulbright
says in "The Arrogance of Power",
". . . the idea of being responsible
for the whole world seems to have
dazzled us, giving rise to what I
call the arrogance of power."

gram for Vietnam, the 11-chap-

Israel's Foreign Debt
Stands at $1.3 Billion

JERUSALEM (ZINS) — Israeli

debt in foreign currency now totals
$1,300,000,000, according to well-
informed economic sources. Israel
reserves in gold and dollar curren-
cy stands at $616,000,000, a decline
to $20,000,000 from the reserve in
1965. The Israeli State Bank, in
publishing these figures, ascribes
the drop of $20,000,000 in Israeli
reserves to the repayments of
debts in the past year.

resolution. He also spells out
the steps for peace the United
States might take to improve
relations with China; and ex-
plains why he believes the re-
unification of Germany is es-
sential to world stability.

Senator Fulbright offers some
specific steps which he believes the
United States might take to im-
prove relations with China. "Ameri-
can hostility is probably prolong-
ing the extremist phase of the
Chinese revolution; my hope is that
one day soon we will moderate our
hostility and offer to China the
hand of friendship, knowing full
well that it is almost certain to be
rejected but knowing as well that
honest and repeated offers of
friendship may weaken the Chinese
image of a hostile America and
hasten the day of China's Ther-
midor. "If we can bring ourselves
to act toward China with under-
standing and generosity, we will be
on the way to a solution of the
great problems that beset us in
Eastern Asia."

His "The Arrogance of Power"
is an important social document

Swastikas Found on Home
of Jewish Painter in Italy

ROME (JTA) — Swastikas were
found smeared on the walls and
doors of the home of the Jewish
painter, Xanri Schawinsky, a
known anti-Nazi. The home is on a
hill overlooking the Italian side of
Lake Locarno, north of Milan.
Prior to 1933, Schawinsky was
a member of the Bauhaus group in
Germany. He fled to Italy and then
to the United States when the Na-
zis seized power in Germany. He
returned to Italy last summer to
live. Currently he is visiting in the
United States.
