DaCosta Cites IndianActivity

The crisis in India resulting
om the Chinese Communists' ag-
ession has led to an intensive
organization and activity in the
untry's economic and political
atters, Eric P. W. daCosta, man-
ing director, of the Indian In-
tute of Public Opinion, declared

become - a frontier of the free
world. I am looking forward to
further development of the part-
nership between India and the
United States.
Fifty years from now we will
have' an economy as massive as
yours is at present and it will be
based on the same ingredients of
economic growth-continental size,
abundant raw materials and vast
internal markets."
Chinese Troops
The invasion and occupation of
Red Chinese troops on Indian
territory in late 1962 has ignited
a feeling of nationalism and sac-
rifice unparalleled in Indian his-
tory. Former relations with Red
China, daCosta noted, had mis-
judged the aggressiveness and
ruthlessness of the Communists.
"We underestimated their expan-
sionist intentions in the Asian
The invasion in Ooctober came
as a . deep psychological shock to
India and it will take much time,
possibly a decade, before the full
border in the northern province
of Ladakh is restored.
"For 50 years the Indian lead-
ers and many intellectuals lived
under the Ghandian influence of
non-violence and a partial dis-
dain for industrialization and
modernization," daCosta continu-
Economic Progress
However, modern India was built
on the belief in economic progress.
Thus, inmmediately after independ-
ence was gained, there was a re-
jection of some of Ghandi's ideas.
A change in the leadership which
will inevitably occur in the present
period will not disturb the people
now because the main focus is on
"It is good for democracy in
India that the Congress Party
have some reversals at the polls
in 1967, but presently they are
reaping the full benefits of being
the government in power at the
time of the crisis," he explained.
Indian democracy, although it
has lived in the shadow of one
man for so long, involves the par-
ticipation of the people : this is
known*as*"grass-roots" demo-
cracy. The people have demanded
measures to combat the Chinese
threat and they have made their
views known to their representa-
On January 9, 1963 the Gold
Control Rules were passed to free

reserves for international use.
These rules, which state that no
ornaments can be made of more
than 14 carats gold, have shaken
an established Indian tradition
and will place many goldsmiths
out of work.
"There is a 2500 mile long bor-
der with China. It is estimated
that the Chinese have a three and
a half million man army, one mil-
lion being in Tibet. We feel that
we cannot defend the border un-
til we have an army equal in size
to theirs," daCosta said..
This would involve a trebling of
the defense expenditures, which
will take three years. Therefore,
the present economic plan would
have to be cut, including a reduc-
tion in education and public
health .spending.
"Over the last decade, when
India introduced planning, we had
an annual gross national product
growth rate of three and a half
to four per cent. If we can double
our GNP to eight per cent per
year, we won't need heavy taxa-
tion and setbacks in our plan,"
he explained.
Fewer Strikes
The crisis has had the effect of
spontaneously inducing greater
efficiency in business, less strikes
in factories and has instilled a
sense of obligation and economic
respect in the entire population.
"It has also had the effect of
splitting the Indian Communist
Party. Half of them want to sup-
port China under the mistaken
impression that the occupation of
Chinese troops would help them.
The others defend India," daCosta
This is the best time for an ad-
justment of the Pakistani-Indian
dispute in Kashmir province, he
continued. However, an immediate
solution of the problem is impos-
sible now because emotions are too
involved. But both India and Pak-
istan must recognize that the
defense of Asia is more important,
he concluded.

Rising Costs
Do Not Hurt'
"Football at the University is in
no financial trouble despite sky-
rocketing costs," Director of Ath-
letics H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler said
last week.
The remark came in response to
an article appearing in the Decem-
ber issue of Fortune magazine,
written by former "U" guard Myles
Jackson. The article stated that
"big time college football" will
soon be faced with a major deci-
sion. "Either schools will have to
push it harder as a commercial
business, subsidize it out of gen-
eral funds, or liquidate it complete-
ly," Jackson contended.
"Football is the only activity.
that showed a profit last year,"
Crisler stated. The problem is that
the sport is expected to carry the
burden of the spiraling costs of
running the entire athletic sys-
ter, he said.
Rising Costs
Costs have gone up in the last
few years, but so have ticket prices
and gross receipts, Crisler noted.
"Gate receipts last season were the
same as those of the year before.
There are more students going
to see football today than ever be-
fore, Crisler said, and as yet the
University does not charge a spe-
cial coupon fee as do seven of the
other conference teams.
Estimates Returns
Although the precise figures and
breakdowns of them were not
available, Crisler estimated that
the gross income from gate re-
ceipts, parking, voncessions, ra-
dio and television came to "just
under $1 million."
Athletics at the University are
not a profit-making business,
Crisler said, pointing to such fea-
tures as cheap green-fees and club-
house facilities offered to the stu-
dents at a loss to the department.

Rea Coordinates Student Financial Aid

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond of a five-part series of profiles
on the several officials in the Of-
five of Student Affairs.)
The Office of Financial Aids
under the Office of Student Af-
fairs hopes to serve as the coordi-
nating center for all University
financial help to students.
The office is concerned with
scholarships, federal and univer-
sity loan funds, prizes and grants-
in-aid, Director of Financial Aids
Walter B. Rea, former dean of
men, explained recently.
"We are not attempting to cen-
tralize all financial aids under one
office. Some of our funds are fort
different schools and departments,
and we have found they can morel
effectively administer their own
funds as they are often closer to
the students and collectors than
we are. We administer those funds
unrestricted by subject require-
No Loan Agency
Rea emphasized that the office
"is not a loan agency. A student
does not just submit an applica-
tion and get his money. We per-
sonally interview each student to
find out such things as why he
needs the money, when he can pay
the loan back and whether he and
his family can contribute more
substantially to his support."
The office has to turn down
some applications, especially those
required for commercial purposes.
"We also do not look with favor
on the use of automobiles for
pleasure by people with financial
troubles; however we realize that
in some cases, where married stu-
dents or engineers are concerned,
transportation is a necessity."
Currently the office is attempt-
ing to expand the effectiveness of
its financial counseling services by
concentrating and making avail-
able information. on scholarship

increased greatly. "It is a shame

Short Term Loans
Most University loans are short
term as opposed to long term.
Students borrow funds during the s
year and then pay back out of 1
summer earnings. Although the
University would like to make more
long term loans it cannot afford
to tie up its funds for such a long
period, he said.
As opposed to the loan which
constitutes a legal obligation for
repayment the University also has
a limited amount of grant-in-aid
funds which carry a moral obliga-
tion. These are given out on the
basis of an emergency situation
where a student loses his job or
incurs a heavy medical expense.
As reasons for the increased de-
mand for financial aid Rea cited
the tuition raise last semester and
increased living costs as the chief k
culprits. "We would like to say
that no student has been forced
