PROF. HAROLD K. JACOBSON
... colonialism
By ROBERT SELWA
"Ironically, America may end
up as the last of the colonial pow-
ers," Prof. Harold K. Jacobson of
the political science department
said at the Ann Arbor chapter of
the American Association of the
United Nations yesterday.
Colonialism is dying, and its
final liquidation is being pushed
in the United Nations, he said.
Little is left of the UN's trustee-
ship system. Former colonial pow-
ers are rapidly losing their ter-
ritories.
Except U.S.
"Except the United States," he
said.
"We may well be the last of the
colonial powers because of the ter-
ritories we hold in the Pacific un-
der the trusteeship program," he
noted, referring to the Marshall,
Carolina and Marianna islands.
"Our record is good, but we
have been neglectful and have not
done much for them.
Prof.'Jacobson said America has
granted these islands no large-
scale economic aid, and has pre-
vented business enterprises from
investing there, probably for se-'
curity reasons. They are useful
bases for American military

forces, and the United States has
a missile base on Kwajalein in the
Marshalls._
Inter-Islandl
America has been putting $6
million a year in them, he went
on but these funds have gone pri-
marily into inter-island transpor-
tation. The Kennedy administra-
tion is asking Congress for $10
million for them for the fiscal year
of 1963.
If America holds her territories
"inflexibly" only to maintain mil-
itary prowess, "we're likely to
come under heavy criticism," he
said. "One of the principle rea-
sons we hold them is that for an-
other country to hold them could
threaten our lanes of communica-
tions."
It would be economically "very+
difficult" for them to stand on
their own feet at this moment if
we let them go, he pointed out.
They are not yet ready for inde-
pendence.
Students Set
As Trainees
In Legislature,
Seven University students are
among the 16 chosen to serve one-
week internships with members of
the Legislature, according to the
Michigan Center for Education in
Politics.
The internships, designed to give
students practical political exper-
ience. in Lansing, involve assign-
ments developed in cooperation
with the sponsoring Legislators,
among them Rep. Gilbert E. Burs-
ley (R-Ann Arbor).
Selected from the University
were: Antoinette Bilotte, '63,
Michal Forster, '63; Ellen Hard-
ing, '63; Mary Jo Holmes, '63; Jon
Kouba, '62; Ann Proctor, '62; and
Marcelle Smart, 65.

By DONNA ROBINSON
Einstein's.-general theory of rel-
ativity states that it should be
possible to translate any valid
mathematical equation of physics
into any possible frame of refer-
ence.
The problem of reference sys-
tems was the topic yesterday of
the second of a series of six
speeches by Prof. Cornelius Lanc-
zos on the place of Albert Einstein
in the history of physics.
Phenomena
In viewing any physical phe-
nomena there is an infinite num-
ber of reference systems the sci-
entist can use, Prof. Lanczos said.
That is, the problem can be viewed
from the position of any one of
an infinite number of hypotheti-
cal observers.
This concept of n u m e r o u s
frames of reference was first used
by the Dutch mathematician
Christian Huygens in 1690 in
studying the phenomenon of two
masses which approach each other
at the same velocity and then col-
lide. Instead of viewing the prob-
lem from the position of an ob-
server standing off from the
collision, Huygens postulated an
imaginary observer moving along
with the masses, staying exactly
equidistant from each mass as
they move. From this viewpoint he
was able to prove that the velocity
of each mass after the collision
would be exactly the same as the
approach velocity, Prof. Lanczos
said.
Huygens, however, did not state,
nor even recognize, the import-

ance of the principle he had used,
and the Newtonian system, which
dominated physics until Einstein's
time, claimed just the opposite.
Newton assumed an absolute
frame of reference from which all
measurements must be made.
It remained for Einstein to lay
the principle down as a require-
ment for the validity of any scien-
tific equation. This insight, Prof.
Lanczos said, could almost cer-
tainly not have been achieved by
anyone but Albert Einstein.
Reference Concept
In conclusion, Prof. Lanczos
stressed that, though the concept
of reference systems is an import-
ant part of Einstein's work, it was
Einstein was above all a physi-

By PHILIP SUTIN
Student Government Council
pproved a proposal to establish
earing before judiciaries, but
student defender for those ap-
ostponed setting up the post
ending further planning and
onferences.
The Council will consult with
oint Judic and the Faculty Sub-
)mmittee on Discipline before
aking further action.

Under the motion submitted by
Daily Editor John Roberts, '62, the
student defender would "advise
and counsel students" appearing,
before University judiciaries, "de-
fend their legal rights and present
arguments relating to the case."
Council president Richard Nohl,
'62BAd., said that he will consult
with Roberts to incorporate pro-

a more complete plan.
SGC also passed a resolution
urging the Constitutional Conven-
tion to permit 18-year-olds to vote
and will send the proposal to Con-
Con delegates and other state col-
lege and university student gov-
ernments.
Good Reasons
SGC believes, "there are good
reasons for lowering the voting
age to 18. Not only is the 18-year-
old directly affected by govern-
ment policies, but, more import-
ant, has an interested knowledge
concerning government affairs,"
the resolution stated.
On a motion by Thomas Moch,
'62, the Council changed its meet-
ing time to 7:15 p.m. instead of
the present 4:15 p.m. Constitu-
ent's time will remain at 9 p.m.
Psychologist Set

Prof. John Shepard of the psy-
chology department will speak on
"The Role of Floor Cues in Mul-
tiple Unit Maze Learning" at 4:15
p.m. today in the west conference
room of the Rackham Bldg.
A coffee hour will be held at
3:45 p.m. in the same room. This
is the first in the newly instituted
John Shepard annual lecture
series. The Donald G. Marquis
award for the best dissertation of
the year will also be presented at
the colloquium.
