Afghanistan Ambassador Defends Nation's Neutralism

n t

By GLORIA BOWLES

Afghanistan's ambassador to the
United States, speaking at Rack
ham Amphitheatre yesterday, ex-
plained hls nation's commitment
to policies of neutralism.
"Neutralism is, for us, a national
trait ,'Hashim Mainwandal said..
"We do not want to be committed
to a policy, contrary to our na-
tional interest so our relations
with the United States and Rus-
sia have been friendly. We hope.
to perpetuate these relations."
Afghanistan 'has accepted for-
eign aid from both nations and
has refused to ent'er into military
alliances because they only tend
"to increase world tension.'
Cites Geography'
He said that Afghanistan's geo-
graphic position "is taxing our
efforts and our determination, but
we still hope we can make our
modest effort toward understand-
ing. ,
McClelland Sets'
Talk on Fantasy
Prof. David C. McClelland,
chairman of the Center for Re-
search in Personality, at Harvard
University, will speak on "Fan-
tasy as a Measurement Technique"
at 4:15 p.m. today in Aud. B. The
talk is sponsored by the University
psychology department. '

In central Asia, the country is
bordered by the Soviet Union,
China, Pakistan and Iran. The
foreign ambassador recognized
that Afghanistan's geographic
proximity "to the Soviet Union
gives us special importance."
Mainwandal, however, criticized
United States aid to Pakistan,
which, he says is contributing' to
the domination of the Pushto
peoples.
There. are 11 million Pushton in
Pakistan and Afghanistan. The
Afghanistan government has set-
tled on a policy for their self-
determination.
Afghanistan's contribution to
world peace, said Mainwandal,
comes in her effort toward eco-
nomic self-development.
The country just completed a
five year economic plan begun in
1956 and will begin a second five-
year effort in August of 1961.
To Build Economy
"We have started a continuing
effort toward building our econ-
omy and raising our standard of
living. Afghanistan has arrived at
an important crossroads. We be-
lieve in a guided economy which
conforms to the needs of the
people," he said.
"A scarcity of capital has been
the nation's biggest economic
problem. Foreign loans and credit
are welcome.
"Increased output is first on

the list of economic aims. The
country soon hopes to produce
enough for exports," Mainwandal
said.
Mainwandal precdicted that in
the next few years Afghanistan's
economy would show significant
progress. He said increased foreign
aid and technological development
would aid the country.

Dear Dr. Frood: I have a corifession.
All my life I have been trying to
learn how to whistle. I just can't.
Please, will you tell me how to
whistle?
Puckered
DEAR PUCKERED: Watch the birds.
Notice how they gather a pocket of
air deep within the breast, then
push thin jets of this air into the
.throat, through the larynx, up and
around the curled tongue, and then,
bounce the air from the roof -of the
mouth out through the teeth (which
act like the keyboard on a piano).
Practice this. In no time your
friends will be amazed at the beau.
tiful, warbly trills that flow from
your beak.

Dear Dr. Frood: i just can't seem to

singing and dating. None of these
things interest me at all. Am I behind
