Russia May Become Greatest Power

RHYTHMIC READING-Speech department's Playbill production
of Sean O'Casey's "I Knock At The Door" eliminates scenery,
movement, everything but the actors. Here, actors Terry Thure,
'60, and Diane Stolorow, '60, portray the brother and sister in the
concert reading.

Russia may soon become the
world's greatest power, ,several
University professors told theI
University Press Club yesterday.
These professors, specialists in{
astronomy, geography and politi-
,cal science, have all traveled ex--
tensively in Russia. All of them
agreed that Russia's vast poten-
tial resources and rapid growth
point to an increase of Soviet
The Russian standard of living
is not as high as ours, Prof;1
George Kish of the geography de-{
partment pointed out, "but this is
because the Soviet people have ac-
cepted, or been forced to accept,
the sacrifice of consumer goods
and a high living standard for the
future growth of the Russian
Prof. Kish informed the audi-
ence of the great increase in Rus-!
sian productive capacity in recent
years. In 1955, he said, Soviet
production was about 35 per cent
of the United States total. At
present growth rates it will reach
77 per cent by 1965.
"Based upon equal and possibly
greater natural resources, this
should give us pause," he said.
"The fact that Russia has made
her great strides in only 40 years
is a potential selling point to the
parts of the free world -still un-
Prof. William Ballis of the po-
litical science department said
that he believes that a loosening
of the hold of totalitarianism will
come with the Russian rise in edu-
cation, opportunity and standard
of living.
The rise of a "new managerial
class," which was necessary to the
growing economy has had an ef-
fect on the society.
"But' the Communist party,
which covers the hand of Soviet
government like a glove, is dedi-.
cated to repulsing all threat to
its dominance and ever seeks its
goal of world Communism.
The central challenge now is.
not in the arms race, but in the
contest for the allegiance of the
uncommitted peoples of South-
east Asia, Africa and other areas.
Premier Nikita Khrushchev's ca-
reer is staked on peace and econ-
omic growth."
Prof. Aller of the astronomy de-
partment, presented a picture of

Soviet Russia as a country where
books are peddled from pushcarts
like those seen by Alexander the
The books, .however, are often1
on astronomy or physics, and they
are bought in great quantities.
"Russia is relatively backward
in the biological sciences, but is
not at all backward in the physical
sciences," he noted. "The Rus-
sian instruments sometimes are
termed 'primitive,' but they pro-
duce results."
"And when Russian scientists
really want to do something -
whether to create a sun camera,
a nuclear reactor or a satellite-
they can do it, he added. Their
satellites appear rude, but they,
get them up there and their con-
trol mechanisms are extremely

in theoretical astrophysics is be-
ing done in the Soviet Union, Prof.
Aller explained, but he added that
Soviet scientists may suffer from
lack of exchange information and
outside contacts with foreign sci-
"The Soviet government faces
the problems that if her scientists
are not allowed to circulate out-
side, they may get behind; but if
they circulate too much they may
get heretical ideas," he said.
"The danger is," he added, "that

The Russian people want to
live like Americans, he concluded,
a condition that may not' be too
far off for them.
