NATO Policy,
In Question,

The appearance of the atomic
stalemate between the opposing
world powers has brought about
two important questions on the
strategy of the North Atlantic
Treaty Organization, according to

"liberalism in educational policy"
to combat student apathy.
At Tyler House in East Quad-

administration through commit-
tees. "I prefer graduate students
on committees of boards in con-

To Air .Report,
On Parenthood
University television will de-
scribe the effects of parenthood
on marriage this morning.
At 8 a.m. on WXYZ-TV (chan-
nel 7, Detroit), a series of vi-
gnettes will illustrate some of the
typical stages in the transforma-
tion from husband and wife to
father and mother on the Uni-
versity television office's program
Commenting on these parent-
hood scenes will be Prof. Guy E.
Swanson, program. guest, and
Prof. Robert Blood, host of the
marriage series, both of the soci-
ology department.
Some of the scenes will portray
the first sleepless night when the
baby gets home from the hospital
and the wife's increasing absorp-
tion in the baby, often to the ne-
glect of husband.
Others are parental disagree-
ments about discipline, often in

front of the child, and the special
joy experienced by two people
sharing love for a third.

'Case Law'
Roman Code
"Case law" played a greater
role in the development of Roman
law than is sometimes realized,
Prof. John P. Dawson of Harvard
Law School said yesterday.
Prof. Dawson was delivering the
second of a series of five lectures
-The Thomas M. Cooley Lectures
-on "Judges: Oracles of the Law."
He explained that "Roman law,
like English law, grew to maturity
with little help from express legis-
lation . . . Leadership in the Eng-'
lish bar, from the time that 'the
bar was first organized, depended
directly on a public connection
with the central courts. The au-
thority of the Roman jurist, on
the other hand, was mainly pro-
duced by their personal status in
a highly stratified society."
LawOver Precedent
Justinian, himself, and many
students of Roman law, accepted
the maxim that decrees should be
rendered "not by example (legal
precedents), but by law as the
basic principle of Roman law,"
Prof. Dawson said.
"It was while this great project
(the Justinian Code) was still
under way that he announced what
seemed to him quite obvious-the
opinions of judges, even quite high
imperial judges, do not need to be
followed for they might be erron-
eous, error should not be perpet-
uated," he continued.
Prof. Dawson explained that the
growth of the law was accom-
plished by the laymen who served
as judges. Although these men did
not write out their opinions, over
the years they did build up cer-
tain traditions.
Jurists Guided Course
The trained jurists, who were
members of the aristocracy, guided
the course taken by the lay-judges.
Since, however, Justinian be-
lieved that Roman law was based
on the principle "not by example,
but by law" and "since there was
little else in his compilation that
formally contradicted it, it rang
down the corridors of history for
1300 years," he concluded.
To Administer
State Selective Service Head-
quarters announced yesterday
that the college qualification test
will be given to college men on
April 30, 1959.
The test given on that date will
be the only one offered for the
1958-59 school year, and will be
administered by the Educational
Testing Service, Princeton, N.J.
Students wishing to take the
test must obtain 1959 application
cards and t instructions from any
local board, for use of old appli-
cation cards may result in stu-
dents missing the test. Postmark
deadline for all applications is
midnight Thursday, April 9.
Local draft boards use test
scores as one guide in considering
requests for deferment from mili-
tary service to continue studies.
Such student deferments have
been in the past a major factor
insuring the nation's specialized
manpower resources. , 1
All college men planning to
take the test are urged to make
early application at their nearest

local board office for more de-
tailed information and all neces-
sary forms and materials.
Since the first administration of
the test in 1951, student defer-
ments have made possible many
of today's scientists, engineers and
specialists in other technical fields,
as well as the social sciences,
teaching and the humanities.

these two questions as: Can
Europe depend on the United
States? How can NATO defend
Europe without the use of nuclear
"What does NATO do to defend
herself, short of nuclear war, if
Russia attacks with her vastly su-
perior land forces?" Prof. Gibbs
Land Forces Low.
At the very most, he continued,
NATO has 25 land divisions in its
army. Its strategic policy, until
1956, depended very strongly upon
the atomic air power of the United
States to back up the European
land forces.
But in 1956, Prof. Gibbs said,
came the realization that Russia
had caught up and was even
ahead in the development of nu-
clear weapons, putting the world
into an atomic stalemate.
"The weapons developed in the
1950's, if used, will defeat their
own purpose - they cannot be
used to the success of either coun-
try," he stated.
New Strategy Planned
Finally, he continued, the idea
of a new strategy was born.
"NATO now began to think in
terms of a war fought without
strategic air power."
Gibbs said, "The longer there is
a building up of nuclear defenses,
the stronger is Russia's tempta-
tion to dare us to defend an act
of aggression with nuclear wea-
NATO then began to produce
small tactical weapons at the dis-
posal of its armies. Gibbs added
that two. new policies were adopt-
ed: to tone down war to compen-
sate for the lack of air power and
to limit war to the battlefields.
Nuclear Arms Out
Gibbs maintained that NATO
could not use even tactical nu--
clear weapons in Europe because
Europe can be destroyed as easily
by many small nuclear weapons
as by a few large ones.
"We must not fool ourselves,"
he added. "We must have these
weapons to keep Russia in fear
of attacking us. But our main
need is to build up NATO's con-
ventional forces."
NATO has adopted defensive
strategy from its beginnings, Prof.
Gibbs concluded. To fully defend
the continents of Europe and
North America, the NATO natiohr
must realize and face up to these
important changes in policy and
provide answers for these two

The modern British satirical
novel is a "creative force which we
like to think of as literature," Prof.
Marvin Felheim said in a sym-
posium yesterday.
Prof. Felheim was joined by Prof.
Donald Hall and James Gindin, all
of the English department, in a
symposium on "Current Trends in
British Literature," a discussion of
the new satirical novels, the poetry
and the criticism of Britain's "An-
gry Young Men."
These young writers, Gindin said,
such as John Wain and Kingsley
Amis, "have turned their greatest
talents towards comedy" for very
specific reasons. "Comedy serves as
a kind of protective means," he
continued. "It is an instrument of
the non-absolute." These novelists,
he pointed out, are basically exis-
tential in philosophy.
Pokes 'Holes' in Absolutes
"Our only solutions have to be
based on our own existences," he
said. The satirical form serves to
poke holes in social and philosoph-
ical absolutes, he explained, with-
out setting up any to replace them.
The comical form, Gindin said,
also helps the novelists to "con-
stantly satirjze English tradition
as played against the individual."
The current trend in poetry,
Prof. Hall noted, is a revolution
against the emotionally-centered,
obscure work, "glorified, if not
typified by Dylan Thomas."
Includes Poets, Critics'
"The Movement," as this rebel-
lion against the old form is known,
includes not only poets, but also
"slides over to the 'novel on one
hand and criticism on the other,"
Prof. Hall continued. "The same
man will be in many cases poet,
novelist and critic."
Many of the novelists, he said,
Kingsley Amis in particular, are
essentially poets, and tend to "take
the novel cavalierly."
This tendency to involve several
forms in one work can be seen


.clearly in Joyce Cary's "The
Horse's Mouth," Prof. Felheim
commented. "The whole novel is a
gloss on a great poem."
Delinquents Grew 1Up
Although the initial critical re-
action to the work of these Angry
Young Men was. to term them
"literary juvenile delinquents,"
Gindin said, it has become appar-
ent that they have something to
say, now that "they are no longer
so angry, and some of them no
longer young."
Their revolution is social and
literary, Prof. Felheim noted.
These men have created, through a
"picaresque approach to the
novel," something which is very
much a live force and a matter of
concern for readers, he said.
