dangers of military weakness, a
point that has been sinking in

Firm Stand
In Far East
This country should make use
of President Dwight D. Eisenhow-
er's cordial welcome in India to
take a "very firm stand" on its
policy on foreign aid and colonial-
ism in Asia and Africa, Prof. J.
David Singer of the political sci-
ence department said yesterday.
Stressing the importance of
more foreign aid, he noted that
Russia has used her aid program
as a "very effective political tool."
Unless more financial aid is given
through the United Nations, Russia
will have no pressure to end her
bilaterial program.
Opposes Asian Colonialism
He advocated an opposition to
colonialism in Asia even though
it would antagonize European
countries, because there is a
greater chance that the East will
be alienated from the United
rated Press wirephoto States.
wd as he rides with "After all, the whole purpose of

Prof. Singer commented that
India will probably maintain its
policy of non-alliance, unless a
large-scale conflict should devel-
op and that it is to the advantage
r ease of both the East and West to keep
it so.
He also said the trip will prob-
ably result in a political advan-
tage for Republicans at home.

United States is planning to ask
its European allies to carry a
greater share of the burden of de-
fending Western Europe against
the threat of Soviet power.
Secretary of State Christian A.
Herter, reporting this at a news
conference yesterday, indicated
the first step would be to propose
an immediate study of the cost-
sharing problem within the North
Atlantic Treaty Organization.

The 15-nation NATO Council
will meet in Paris next Tuesday,

Eisenhower will attend.
Herter also told his news con-

him to Italy, Turkey, Pakistan,
Afghanistan and India, has pro-
duced "extremely satisfactory"
conferences between the President
and the chiefs of other nations.
Herter also said the overseas
public acceptance of Eisenhower
has "exceeded our greatest expec-

The 17th Century playwright, William Congreve,
was the first to set down this classic metaphor
concerning the powers of sound and rhythm.
You'll find the whole quote in "The Mourning
Bride", Act 1, Sc. 1:
"Music bath charms to soothe the savage breast
To soften rocks, or bend a knotted oak."
Edmund Spenser, 16th Century poet, expected a
pension. He didn't get it. So he wrote this rhyme:
"I was promised on a time/To have reason
for my rhyme;/From that time unto this seasonf
I received nor rhyme nor reason."
