Soviet International
Position Changing
Soviet foreign policy has gone through a historical de-
velopment which has placed it in an altogether new position in
world affairs, Prof. Richard Lowenthal of Columbia University
said yesterday in the second speech of a University "Con-
ference on the Khrushchev Era and After."
Russia's new position and attitude in world affairs has
three important aspects, Lowenthal said:
-Increasing emphasis upon internal stability and firm
economic bases;
-4 tendency to rely upon politics and colonial revolutions
for world power struggles, and
-Conscious acceptance of the fact that Russia does not
have to be sole arbiter of the Communist world.
"Cold War"
Lowenthal said these and other new developments make the
old concept of a."cold war" impractical, but he emphasized that
we are still in a "power conflict" with the Russians.
The techniques of this power conflict "should, in principle,
be more manageable for the West," said Lowenthal. "But this
also implies that they have to be managed. The degree and
pace of change depends on the ability of the West to manage
the conflict," he -added.
Lowenthal traced the changes in Communist ideology and
attitude from the time of Stalin to today. The Russian attitude
toward foreign policy has gone from caution to confidence and
back again to a point somewhere between, he explained.
Stalin, faced with the post-war emergence of Russia as
the world's second-largest power, was never able to, use that
power, Lowenthal said. Stalin confined his political manuevers
to the Eurasion continent and, even after the atomic bomb,
acted with caution.
But after the two major powers reached a stalemate on
nuclear bombing capacities, the Russians, led by Khrushchev,
moved toward a policy of self-confidence until finally a com-
bination of internal and external causes forced them to adopt
their present attitude.
Chinese Differences
The last stage of development to the present attitude was
caused to no small extent by the Chinese ideological differences,
Lowenthal said.
While the Soviets were developing a more "practical" and
economic-oriented foreign policy, "China felt the need to retain
the stand of a besieged fortress," Lowenthal said. "The Russians
found they could not longer harmonize with the Chinese and
discovered the Chinese were applying ideological pressures."
In 1962, after the Soviet Union found it could no longer
control Red China, Cuba's Fidel Castro or even little Romania.
The Soviet Union, Lowenthal said, had effectively lost its
previous world-wide control over the Communist movement.
The realization called for a revision of Russia's attitude,

HOUSTON (3)-America's talk-
ative space twins set a new
American endurance record with
remarkable nonchalance yester-
day, then settled back to drift
eisurely through the heavens.
At midnight space stroller Ed-
ward White and command pilot;
James McDivitt were completing'
their 24th circuit of the globe-
two more than astronaut Gordon
Cooper completed May 16, 1963.
And during an otherwise com-
paratively routine day, the loqua-
cious pair also chatted breezily
with their wives and caught a
glimpse of another artificial
satellite orbiting in the vastness
of space.
Big Moment
The record-breaking moment
came at 8:36 p.m. while the
Gemini 4 spacecraft was hurtling
across the Pacific and' McDivitt
was exchanging technical data
with the Hawaii tracking station.
When the brief exchange was
completed, Gemini 4 had surpass-
ed Cooper's 34 hour and 20 min-
ute flight, and capsule communi-
cator Stuart Davis offered his
From that point on through
midnight there was virtually no
further informal talk of the sort
that thus far has characterized
the McDivitt-White flight; only
occasional technical reports were
Ultimate Goal
Gemini 4's ultimate goal is to
complete 62 orbits and drop back
to earth Monday after 97 hours
and 50 minutes in space. That
still will be short of Russian cos-
monautValery Bykovsky's record
of 119 hours and 81 orbits.
The most glamorous phase of
their four-day adventure behind
them, McDivitt and White spent
the second day of their cosmic
journey simply trying to live
routinely in their unreal environ-
ment. Both were reported in fine
mental and physical condition.
White's thrilling space walk and
McDivitt's exciting but futile at-
tempt to catch the orbiting rocket
booster were experiments added to
the flight plan on a sort of "as
long as they're up there" basis.
Space scientists mainly wanted
to learn how the human body,
especially the heart, reacts to pro-
longed periods of weightlessness.
There were, however, a few in-
cidents yesterday to relieve the

Hail Fih Gemini 4 Fih As
Technological Success.
The Gemini 4 was hailed as a technological success but with
little political significance by three University professors last night.
It was called a milestone by two professors in the aeronautical
and astronautical engineering department because it is sending back
"urgently needed aero-medical information dealing with the effects
that prolonged conditions of weightlessness have on the human body."
According to Prof. Wilbur C. Nelson chairman of the department,
scientists need this information in order to plan more extensive
programs. If some form of gravity is necessary, engineers will have
to provide it artifically by puttingt',

At one point White gave capsule
communicator Virgil G r i s s o m
some added details about his
space stroll which occurred dur-
ing Thursday's third orbit. Only
after some urging did White re-
turn reluctantly to the space ship.
White provided a word picture
of his adventure. He described the
"vivid blue" waters of the Gulf of

Mexico and the Caribbean, and
said he clearly saw Houston, Gal-
veston Bay and even a small
Texas lagoon, Clear Lake, as he
floated on the end of his golden
life line.
Neither astronaut was able to
sleep too well during their alter-
nately scheduled four-hour rest
periods following the space walk.

Nelson explained that this is not
a simple problem. Aeronautical
engineers would have to find a
way to provide a stationaryarea

"No Race"
From the political standpoint,
Nelson said the Gemini had no
effect. "There is no space race,"
he said. We are merely following
pre-set criteria to develop the
United States' space technology."
Prof. David Singer of the poli-
tical science department also said
the political impact was minor.
Economically, Singer pointed out
that the space race requires too'
much money. He suggested that
the resources might better be al-
located to other areas such as
pollution control, arms control or
distribution of food.
The one important virtue of
the space race, according to Sing-
er, is that it takes the minds of
citizens and the political elite off
military conflict. It places the
conflict in a cultural and technical
He also said the space race
might lead eventually to tech-
nical cooperation between nations;
for example, he speculated, the
first rendezvous might be between
Russian and American ships.
Prof. Richard Morrison also ex-
pressed a similar view. He suggest-
ed that there is a possibility that
the U.S. and Russia might want
to compare data on the Gemini 4
flight and the Voskhod 2 flight.
According to both Morrison and
Nelson, the U.S. has passed Russia
in technical knowledge.
Nelson explained that the Unit-
ed States is ahead of the Russians
in its unmanned satellite program
while Russia has the advantage in
terms of its manned satellite pro-
gram, since it has had larger
However, Nelson expiained that,
by early 1967, Apollo rockets
will be built which will be cap-
able of earth orbiting an object
weighing over 110 tons.
Next Step
According to Nelson the next
step in the Gemini program is to
find out if a between-ships ren-
dezvous is feasible. This is neces-
sary because extensive future pro-
grams will necessitate the ex-
change of men and materials be-

Cooper Cites
Planned SGC
This summer and fall Student
Government Council will undergo
a reorientation and restructuring
that will greatly increase its serv-
ices and activities, according to
SGC Administrative Vice-Presi-
dent Charles Cooper, '64.
The increased willingness of the
Office of Student Affairs to dis-
cuss student problems and a high-
ly successful personnel recruit-
ment campaign have given SGC
the firm basis it needs, he ex-
Cooper said that the council
has many areas in which this re-
organization will -take place. His
own office would try to strengthen
the SGC committees as the first
step in an expanded program.
The committee chairmen will be
given both more autonomy and
more responsibility. With their ex-
panded personnel they will be giv-
en more substantial programs to
work on and will be expected to
give reports of their activities.
Council intends to increase ac-
tivity in the areas of coordi-
nation of alumni activities, inter-
national organizations, and stu-
dent activities organizations. It
will also try to acquire more in-
formation on the theory and prac-
tice of higher education in order
to work more effectively with the
administration. Plans are to or-
ganize a new central file and to
increase the resources of the SGC
library .
In the fall and late summer the
council will be working first on
the NSA Congress at the Univer-
sity of Wisconsin. The SGC elec-
tions in the fall will use a system
of IBM cards that will not only
record votes but will give the
council some information on the
individual voter. New projects con-
cerned with student economic wel-
fare include plans for an Ex-
change Bookstore, higher wages,
and better parking facilities.

Causes of Soviet Policies Complex

In the formulation of United States foreign policy, Soviet
policy should not be used as a touchstone for comparison, Prof.
Marshall Shulman said yesterday at the "Conference. on the
Khrushchev Era-and-After."
We need to recognize as a major concern defining our vision
of an international system capable of handling problems, he
said, with due impact on the larger part of the world-the
underdeveloped areas. Thus, if we can discover and enunciate
that conception of our policy for solving immediate crisis, it
will not only have a substantial effect on the Soviet Union, but
will also unfold the ways to avoid war in a decade which is
bound to be full of turbulance and upheavals, he said.
Shulman, from the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy
at Tufts University viewed the present Soviet foreign policy as
a process of realization of realities of external influences.
The political mapping has been changed by new forms of
power with the immense increase in their destructive power,
and the communications and transportation system has been
revoluntionized; consequently even a local flare up of minor
significance becomes global. The diplomatic channels have

the Soviet eyes needed a realistic attitude. Importantly, they
rise of the People's Republic of China as a great power encircled
the Soviet Union with a challenge of unexpected magnitude.
Finally, he said, the enormous, increasing military strength of
the Western powers compelled her to study new dimensions
in herself.
These developments, having stamped the currents of Soviet
attitude in the international horizon, brought about a neta-
morphosis. A far-distant goal, a revolution in the politics and
economy of the entire region, was sought, he explained. This
metamorphosis grew in the direction of priority scales, setting
economic expansion as internal and external policy.
Economic growth thus became a centripetal objective and a
first priority. The transformation of the policy towards achiev-
ing rapid progress in advance industries was the target of the
second priority. With industrial advancement, the Soviet Union
also strode toward a secure and integrity-winning role in Eastern
Europe, obviously a major objective, Shulman said.
Meanwhile, the contest became triangular; the Soviet Union
found herself in competition with the West and China with re-
spect to the large number of developing countries. The advanced
