Kuins Pinpoint Asia Ferment
Eckstein Notes Conflict
In Marxism, Economics
Professors View Future of Federalism
By DANIEL SHAFER
Describing "Asia's Quiet Revolu-
ticn" as a "stupendous event which
h,,s been underplayed for years,"
Mr. and' Mrs. Ferdinand Kuhn
commented yesterday on the in-
te:.nal revolution in Asia in a lec-
ture at Rackham Lecture Hall
sponsored by the journalism de-
Kuhn and his wife who are both1
former staff writers for the New
York Times, described the revolu-
tion as one which is "taking place
ar.d is most noticeable at the
Reporting on the basis of first-
hand observations which he made]
while traveling in Asia with his
wife, Kuhn indicated that there
were three basic goals of this revo-
lu';ion in "the soft underbelly of
Asia" (Southeast and Borderland
arias): 1) political independence.
"as a reality, with each nation
governing its own affairs"; 2) eco-
ncmic progress, or what he said
the Asians term "an opportunity
to catch up with the West"; and,
3) social justice and educational
opportunity, with the idea of giv-
in: the younger generation "a
better opportunity than their par-
"Impatience with the Asians
has been the cause of the Ameri-
can press' tendency to underplay
the 'quiet revolution'," he said.
"We should be aware of the three
major handicaps facing the Asian
peoples in this revolution.
First, the absence of such things
as public security, census facilities,
and, consequently, adequate tax
structures. Secondly, the bad-
neighbor inheritance which most
of these nations have. They all
have poor relations with at least
one of their neighbors. Third, their
lack of education on a mass basis."
Kuhn said that there is a ten-
dency among Americans to view
th a Asians as "retreating from
democracy." This is false, he said,
pointing out that it is rather dif-
ficult to retreat from something
"they have never known."
Signs of Revolt
Mrs. Kuhn explained the signs
of the revolutions which she and
her husband observed while in
Asia. "The revolution is primarily
one of improvements. But not of
By THOMAS DRAPER
The conflicts of Marxian ideol-
ogy with the economic structure of
Communism were discussed yes-
terday by Prof. Alexander Eckstein
of the economics department.
Speaking before a group assem-
bled for the Michigan Council for
the Social Studies Meeting on the
teaching of Communism, Prof.
Eckstein said that "The economic
blueprint of pure communism does
not exist. Marx was primarily con-
cerned with explaining the down-
fall of capitalisia. In many cases
whateverMarxian economic ideol-
ogy existed was so much baggage
that had to be discarded."
The revolt of the proletariat was
supposed to come to the most in-
dustrialized nations, Prof. Eck-
stein said. "Exactly the opposite
has happened. Communism has its
greatest appeal in the underdevel-
oped countries. Communism is at-
tractive, he continued, because it
provides a quick way to industrial-
"A central goal of socialism, is
equality of income." Prof. Eckstein
noted. "Socialism is supposed to
resolve this shortcoming of capi-
talism." However, the Soviet in-
centive system still relies on a
graduation of income based on
"Before the revolution any trade
unions had a strong political link
with socialism," Prof. Eckstein
said. "When the Bolsheviks came
to power they had to control the
means of production. Trade unions
were oriented to fighting against
plant managers, but these man-
agers were now employes of the
"Sources of conflict did not dis-
appear after the revolution. In the
end, trade unions were controlled
by the state and became a means
for disciplining workers-certainly,
a violation of the socialist ideal of
the role of trade unionism."
Emphasis on Industry
Prof. Eckstein noted t.at maxi-
mizing the rate of industrial de-
velopment is a characteristic of all
Communist development. "This is
consistent with their goal of clos-
ing the industrial production gap
QUIET REVOLUTION-Mr. and Mrs. Ferdinand Kuhn,, former
staff members of New York Times, described the "underplayed"
revolution in Asia at a lecture sponsored by the journalism
between the Western and Com-
munist countries. It is a power
oriented rather than wefare ori-
ented pattern of development.
China and the advocates of
Stalinism raise the standard of
living only to the extent that it
raises the productivity of labor."
He said that this does not apply
without qualification to Yugo-
slavia, Poland or Russia since 1955.
The amount of personal consump-
tion per capita is increasing at the
rate of 61%2 per cent per year.
"People are starting to enjoy some
of the fruits of production.".
Prof. Eckstein said that because
of the basic goal of industrial de-
velopment agriculture has been
used to support heavy industrial
investment. The Soviet in the
past have not been prepared to
allocate resources necessary for
agricultural growth. Therefore,
agriculture has become a major
problem, he concluded.

"Art must have subject matter,
style, form and a philosophical
concept which affects the artist's
deep inner being," Prof. Nelson
Wu of Yale University said Thurs-
day in a lecture on Chinese art.
Speaking at the second of a
series of lectures on contemporary
China, sponsored by the Chinese
studies center Wu discussed "Yes-
terday's Experience and Tomor-

unchanged tradition. It is going
through a change today which is
a reaction 'against the traditional
framework of painting, he ex-

viewer must move back and forth,

As the viewer changes his rela-
tionship with the painting, the
traditional Chinese painting chal-
lenges him to improve that rela-
tionship, Prof. Wu said.

The key to the future of federal-
ism lies in the "revitalization and
strengthening of state govern-
ments," Professors Joseph Kallen-
bach and Norman C. Thomas of
the political science department
Because state governments have
been unresponsive to their needs,
people have turned to the federal
government. States have surrend-
ered much of their authority
through unwillingness or inabil-
ity to handle increasingly large
and complex problems, Prof.
In our modern industrial socie-
ty, "man is powerless to exert any
influence on vast national forces,"
he continued. "People expect and
demand a positive role for the fed-
In explaining the changing at-
titudes toward federalism, Prof.
Kallenbach cited the importance
of the western frontier in the 19th
century. It provided an outlet for
those who could not survive or-
Functions and purposes present-
ly served by the federal govern-
ment are a "consequence of the
development of the United States
as a complex industrial society.
The individual must now turn to
the federal government, to proved
social stability to give him a "sense
of self-respect and dignity," Prof.
The Supreme Court decision in
Baker v. Carr is "loaded with un-
answered questions for the federal
system," Prof. Thomas said, in
citing current changes in the fed-
eral system. If the Court adopts
a "definite and firm stand," the
makeup of state legislatures could
be significantly altered.
A more representative state leg-
islature would be more responsive
to the people and thus an in-
crease in state activity could be
expected, he explained.
On this same point the two men
agreed that revitalization will most
probably come through "coopera-
Cooperative federalism is the
implementation of federal pro-'
grams by means of channeling
funds through state governments.,
The states provide supplementary
funds, administer the programs
and meet any standard set up by
the federal government.
Degree of Control
The drawback of cooperative
federalism is a basic disagreement
on the degree of control which the
federal government can impose on
Prof. Kallenbach sees two trends
developing. The first Is "the gravi-
tation of ultimate power to make
policy decisions to the federal gov-
ernment" and second, "closer
working relations between the state
and the federal government on
more and more problems."

major improvements such as dams,
hospitals, and superhighways;
these 'monuments' are future
promises of the revolution's suc-
cess. The signs now are such
things as road improvements with-
in villages, the building of schools,
and the improvement of public
and private sanitation facilities."
Emphasizing educational im-
provements, Mrs. Kuhn cited such
universities as Bangkok and Cal-
cutta as "status symbols" and
noted that "the degree from such
a university is the supreme status
symbol" for the younger genera-
She also pointed out that,
among these younger generation
"intellectuals and educated elite,"
Marxism is a prevalent philosophy.
Kuhn, commenting on what the
United States can do to aid this
revolution, not for humanitarian
reasons but "in its own; hard-
headed interest," pointed out that
he thought "the emphasis has
been wrongly placed in Asian aid.
The stress has been on vast in-
dustrial improvements, following
the Marshall plan used in Europe,
rather than on farm extension
"The end result will unquestion-
ably be a system in which states
will exist in the territorial sense,
but will be engaged in functions
defined by the national govern-
ment," he explained.
Differences among the states
will be lessened and they will in-
creasingly become "administra-
Prof. Thomas commented that,
"considering the supremacy clause,
the innumerated powers and the
implied powers of the Constitu-
tion, there is virtually no function
performed by state or local gov-
erment which cannot ultimately
be taken over by the federal gov-
He added, however, that it is
unlikely Congress will abandon its
resistance to increased federal
programs and public health im-
provements." He said he thought
the emphasis should be placed on
"developing the capacities of
people" rather than on the pro-
duction and utilization of machin-
ery and "useless gadgets." He
praised President Kennedy's Peace
Corps Program for realizing this
and placing the emphasis in the

When Eastern and Western art
forms are combined, the result is
static art. The light falls at an
angle which gives the picture a
single proper perspective.
Prof. Wu explained the ideology
involved in learning the Chinese
art form. Showing the develop-
ment of one stroke into an orchid
leaf, he emphasized that the pro-
gram of the stroke is a micro-
scopic image of an entire picture.
In addition, the artist must the

Through a series of slides, Prof.
Wu demonstrated the necessary
procedure for viewing a traditional
long landscape. The length of such
pictures makes it impossible for
the viewer to see them all at once.
"The viewer must always exer-
cise vision, memory and anticipa-
tion," Prof. Wu insisted.
At first the viewer is high in
the air and, not invited into the
picture. The traditional land-
scapes always had an entrance, a
place of importance and an exit.
"Trditional art is temporal art
and must not be treated differ-
ently," he explained.
Prof. Wu discussed the narra
tive style of album art, showing
the development of this form in a
