Alger Speaks on UN Politics

Calls Arab Unity Efforts 'Rational'

The United Nations functions as
a cosmopolitan society as well as
providing a site for international
confrontation, Prof. Chadwick Al-
ger of New York University said
Speaking at a conflict resolution
seminar on "Politics in Interna-
tional Organizations," Prof. Alger
said, "We usually think of the
United Nations as fulfilling three
functions. It is supposed to achieve
international goals which we us-

"These functions are kept in
mind when. policy decisions are
made on such questions as wheth-
er to admit Red China, whether
to kick out the Soviet Union for
not paying her bills and if we
should move the UN. Actions must
be considered in terms of their
fulfillment on these functions," he
Side Effects
"However, there is more going
on at the UN. When we handle
these policy decisions in the light
of our stated goals we have un-
anticipated side effects," Prof. Al-
ger said.
To account for these side effects,
he suggested other functions per-
formed by the United Nations or
any international organization.
Communisation gaps among na-
tions are bridged. In traditional
diplomacy the "big guy had rela-
tions with everybody, but the little
guy- could only afford communica-
tions with neighboring countries,"
he said.
Face to Face
The international affairs of a
country are pried open by UN par-
ticipation. Face to face contact
with officials of other countries
is experienced by legislators and
citizen representatives as well as

by the members of the diplomatic
corps, he said.
The United Nations increases
the'areas open for communication.
The increased incidence of con-
tact provides a more continuous
flow of information. The likeli-
hood of feedback on a speech or
conversation is greater, he said.
The UN provides the press and
lobbyists an access to officials
that would not exist in traditional
diplomatic circles.

Kalimos Claims Ballet
Active, ChangingForce

"Ballet is a product of the
times," Leon Kalimos, managing
director of the San Francisco Bal-
let, said recently.
"Everything that happens in the
world effects the choreographer
who in turn effects the dancers-
the finely trained instruments of
the ballet. Therefore a good ballet
company, if it has a good chor-
eographer, as we do in Lew Chris-
tienson, is like an embryo--living,
constantly changing and growing."
But, Kalimos continued, the
choreographer also gets stimulus
from the growing and maturing
artists with which he works. "This,
too, is why our company is al-
ways changing. We frequently add
additional artists to, or less com-
monly release present artists from,
our company."
Early Experience
Kalimos explained that most
people dislike ballet because they
have either seen or heard about
a few ballets and these ballets in
all probability were of the old, 19th
century tradition. Today the pub-
lie is tired of these works and
laughs at their overt romanticism.
He pointed out that in the. bal-

lets of the mid-nineteenth century,j
the frustrated love era, the male
was predominantly a supporting
figure for the female dancers. The
late nineteenth century was the
time of Tchaikovsky and the story
ballet. Today ballets have an ab-
stract story line which is under-
stood by a viewer in direct propor-
tion to his intellectual level. "The1
days of the tear-jerker ballets,
have ended."
"Today most American ballet1
companies ruin the audiences.If
a person sees a bad show he will
not want to attend again. In Eu-
rope this is rarely encountered.
There a person goes to the thea-
tre for a beautiful experience, and
the performers try to create one
within the ethical confines of their
art. We are finally waking up to
this, and American productions
are in a constant state of im-
provement," Kalimos added.
He explained that a dancer must
be "dynamic and electric" to in-
spire the audience. "Our company,
the oldest ballet company in Amer-
ica, maintains that to dance is
more than a job; it is an expres-
sion of being human. When any
of our dancers ceases to possess
this attitude, his service no longer
becomes needed."
Kalimos continued, "We have our
own school where we train talent-
ed, young dancers. The students
usually begin when they are 9
years old. After three years of,
instruction they dance before the
board of directors. If they pass,
they enter the upper division
where they are permitted to wear_
toe shoes for the first time and,
are given small parts to get thea
feel of being in front of an, audi-
ence. They are gradually given
more prominent roles until they
are finally asked to join our tour3
company, the highest non-star po-1
sition.; This total period of train-
ing and developing takes about,
ten years," Kalimos said.
Medical Center
To Get Visitors
Several hundred Michigan high
school students and their counse-
lors are expected to visit the Uni-
versity Medical School April 6 for
its annual Students Day.
The students will spend the en-
tire day at the Medical Center
learning about possible medical
careers, how to prepare and apply
for admission to medical school
and touring the center.

"The movement for Arab nation-
alism is gaining new respectability
because it has attracted to itself
some thinkers, and thus gained an
element of rationalism in its ap-
proach," Prof. George Grassmuck
of the political science depart-
ment said in a Hillel lecture Sun-
day night.
"The movement is based on an
understanding of the problems
that confront Arabs. There is a
recognition of time factors, that
these problems won't be solved
overnight. In the new unification
drive are systems of doctrine or
patterns of thought which may

Plan. Tours
For Spring
The Men's Glee Club, under the
direction of Dr. Philip A. Duey, is
preparing for two concert tours to
begin April 4.
The 50-man group will make a
seven-day spring tour of the Unit-
ed States. On June 7 it leaves for
a 5-week European tour.
An appearance at the Culver
Military Academy, Culver, Ind.,
will open the United States tour.
The group has performances
scheduled in Illinois, Ohio, Mis-
souri, and Washington.
Twenty European concerts will
be given. Appearances will be made
in Rome and Naples, Italy; Athens
and Thessaloniki, Greece; Yugo-
slavia; Vienna, Austria; Karkow,
Poland; Nuernberg, Cologne, and
Frankfurt, G e r m a n y; Paris,
France; Luxembourg; Belgium;
and London, England.
The club will close their Eu-
ropean tour at the International
Eisteddfod (musical festival) in
Llangollen, Wales.
On their last European tour in
1959, the club took first place in
the male choir competition. They
won in a contest with over 18 oth-
er male choirs. This was the only
time an American group has won
this competition.
Return to the United States is
scheduled for July 15.
'U Engineers
Deliver Reports
On Aeronautics
Prof. Thomas C. Adamson of
the engineering school reviewed
research on rocket exhaust gas
plumes at a combustion and pro-
Pulsion panel meeting in London
recently. He said that the exhaust
plumes interfere with radiation
given off by the rocket, which in-
cludes telemetry signals from in-
strumentation aboard and radar
tracking the vehicle.
Prof. Adamson recommends that
new approaches to studying the
problem be attempted.
"We will have to go further in
studies of the structure of plumes
at extremely high altitudes (100-
200 miles)," he said, "where rare-
fied gas effects must be taken into
account. And we will have to de-
velop new means of obtaining ex-
perimental data to be compared to
theoretical considerations to pro-
gress further."
Today, Prof. William W. Will-
marth of the aeronautical and as-
tronautical engineering depart-
ment will report his research on

evolve into solutions for Arab
problems," Grassmuck explained.
He cited numerous recent poli-
tical changes in the Arab states
as exemplary of a particular trend
in Arab thought. The Iraqi mili-
tary coup in February was "spark-
ed by one type of national socialist
thought, a consideration to unity,"
Grassmuck claimed. Subsequent to
the revolution the Iraqi Commu-
nist Party affiliated with Moscow
was outlawed. In addition, the in-
dependent Communist Party of ex-
Premier Kassem was declared il-
Favor Unity
The Syrian coup this month was
viewed by Grassmuck as an over-
throwing of one of the oldest gov-
ernmental organizations in exist-
ence-one which had opposed
Nasser. The Ba'ath political party
provided leadership and principles
for the Syrian revolt. This narty
openly favors Arab unity," Grass-
muck said.
The result of these revolutions
was the recent meeting of dele-
gates from Iraq and Syria with
United Arab- Republic President
Gamal Abdel Nasser. Out of the
meeting came a written proposal
for an Arab Federation, which is
presently in its first reading.
The nations listed as eligible for
membership in the Federation in-
clude Yemen, Algeria, Syria, Iraq
and Egypt. Leaders of the Ba'ath
Party asserted that other coun-
tries in the Middle East "were not
sufficiently liberated and develop-

Designedby 'U'
The S-6 satellite, scheduled for
launching soon from Cape Canav-
eral, Fla., will carry an experiment
designed and developed by the
University Space Physics Labora-
The 405-lb. satellite's mission is
to measure the. density, composi-
tion, temperature and pressure of
particles in its 155 to 580 mile-
high orbit.
The University experiment is a
probe, seven inches long, that pro-
trudes out into the ionosphere
from the satellite to measure the
temperature (or energy) of elec-
trons. Measurement is obtained by
applying a known electric voltage
between the probe and the space-
craft and measuring the current
that flows. This current is directly
related to electron temperature,
a laboratory engineer explained.

Over half of the state-supported
colleges and universities covered
in a recent study have raised their
tuition charges this year.
The Joint Office of Institutional
Research reports that, of 90 state
colleges and universities 45 are
charging higher fees for school
year 1962-63 than they did in
1961-62. The out-of-state student
tab was raised in 49 of the in-

from $280 to $295, was actually

basis, in-state tuition and fees
rose 11 per cent, while the Uni-
versity's was up only seven per
The University's in-state stu-
dent tuition charge now falls
slightly below the national average
which is $293 a year.
The out-of-state students' tui-
tion hike, however, is a'nother mat-
ter. While the national average
rose 7.4 per cent, the University's
out-of-state charge was upped by
24 per cent. Its out-of-state tui-
tion, averaging $930, compares
with a $635 nationwide average.
The University was one of 11
institutions who hiked its out-of-
I state fees by more than $100.
