Moscow Talks Indicate
New East-West Fluidity

WASHINGTON-East-West re-
lations are approaching a new per-
iod of fluidity, the Washington
Post reported recently.
There have been, several periods
since World War II when both
sides were attempting to deter-
mine their relationship with the
opposition. Now is such a time.
The diplomatic indicators show
Washington and Moscow are sim-
ilar to two blind men groping
for each other, uncertain whether
they will reach each other's hand
-or neck.
Khrushchev Sticks Neck Out
All the outward signs point to
a change in East-West relations.
Soviet Premier Nikita S. Khrush-
chev deliberately made it appear
that he was turning westward by
attending the opening session of
the nuclear test ban talks with the
United States and Britain. At the
same time, his subordinates were
rebuffing tthe Chinese Communists
in another Moscow meeting.
While the current East-West
talks concern a nuclear test ban,
Kennedy administration strate-
gists are attempting to look be-
yond the single issue.
One of the greatest hazards to
United States strategists is the
Tells Ways
To End Bias
Prof. Albert Wheeler of the Med-
ical School said in a lecture Wed-
nesday night that the greatest
problem facing the Negro in his
fight for equality are "apathy, in-
difference and the unconcern of
white citizens."
Speaking before the Newman
Club, Prof. Wheeler, head of the
Ann Arbor chapter of the Nation-
al Association for the Advance-
ment of Colored People, comment-
ed that the "issue of human rights
is a moral issue."
The manner in which a commu-
nity treats the problem reflects
upon that area's morals.
One of the fundamental ways
to achieve these human rights is
through church organizations,
Prof. Wheeler said. National
church organizations have become
quite active in the fight for Negro
rights, although clergymen in lo-
cal sections, such as the South,
tend to retard progress.
Another method is through fed-
eral legislation and law. In this
field, the Supreme Court of the
United States has had the most
far reaching affect, he claimed.
Non-violent, direct action and
biracial negotiations are two other
methods Prof. Wheeler considered
important as measures to gain
To Consider Ills
Of Urban Slums
"From the Bottom Up-A Mes-
sage for 'The Other America," is
the title of a discussion to be led
tonight by Robert Butman and
Henry Alting, Grad. The discus-
sion will concern urban slums and
minority group problems. It is at
8 p.m. at the International Center.

"black or

tradition of seeking
white" foreign policy

An agreement on a nuclear test
ban will only bring policy difficul-
ties, the Post claimed. It may
throw open to question the whole
Western "containment" policy
erected against the Communists
since World War II.
There have been several major
periods of fluidity since World
War II. The first was right after
the war when the United States
was pre-occupied with a desire to
return to some sort of "normalcy."
The Soviets were then given the
opportunity to use their military
power in converting Eastern Eu-
rope into a Communist empire.
Another uncertain period fol-
lowed Stalin's death, culminating
in the 1956 Polish and Hungarian
uprisings. The fluid situation al-
lowed the Soviet Union to deal
with the uprisings in its own way
while United States policy remain-
ed immobile.
U-2 Breaks Mood
A third period of "fluidity"
came in 1959-early 1960. The U-2
plane was shot down in Russia a
week before the Paris meeting of
former President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower and Khrushchev. This in-
cident took the goodwill out of
that summit meeting and ended
the "spirit of Camp David" which
had prevailed for preceding
The 1959 meeting of Khrush-
chev and Eisenhower at the Mary-
land retreat had raised hopes of
an easing of East-West tension.
After this time, the Red Chinese
greeted Khrushchev with nothing
but scorn proceeding the 1960 fail-
ure of his overtures to the West.
Now that this friction and riv-
alry has become intense, East-
West relations have again become
This was one of the earliest
indications that Communist China
was taking a hard line compared
to the Soviets. It has since be-
come amplified to be one of the
major bones of contention between
the two Communist powers.
Propose Discussion Points
The shape of East-West rela-
tions may be indicated by the
"shopping list" of international
questions to be resolved. The
Kremlin recently submitted such
a list to the United Nations. It
consisted of Soviet suggestions for
the celebration of the 20th anni-
versary of the United Nations in
The subjects ranged from a Ger-
man peace settlement and the so-
lution to the Berlin problem to an
East-West non-aggression pact, li-
quidation of all foreign bases, cre-
ation of world-wide non-nuclear
zones and the banning of foreign
sites for launching nuclear weap-
ons. Also included were withdraw-
al of all foreign troops from South
Viet Nam and South Korea, re-
moval of all trade barriers between
nations and the "prohibition of
war propaganda."
Discussion on these controversial
topics will demonstrate in which
direction East-West relations will
go. If the nuclear testing talks
yield a limited agreement, the
opportunity will bring some new
and challenging questions to the
fore, the Post concluded.

in a staggering fashion unless
something is done, the report
pointed to the vast numbers of
children n o t n o w attending
school in Africa, the Arab States,
Asia and Latin America.
The estimated school-age pop-
uilation was given as a total of 206
million, and the estimated pupil
enrollment as 110 million.
Taking into- consideration the
fact that many now in school will
drop out before becoming func-
tionally literate, it was estimated
that 150 million more illiterates
will be added to the adult popula-
tion within the next few years.
Other Problems
The UN agency acknowledged
that there are many problems,
other than adequate funds, to be
overcome in carrying out a world-
wide literacy campaign.
It said that during its survey
"reports from all areas showed
that although adults may often
express the desire to learn to read
and write, and although - espe-
cially when literacy campaigns
are in progress-there is initially
an enthusiastic response, attend-
ance at literacy classes often
"One factor affecting the will
to learn was expressed in the re-
port from Viet Nam, as follows:
'Very poor people with large fam-
ilies who have to work so pain-
fully hard all day for the daily
bowl of rice are not much inter-
ested in literacy."
