To China
(Continued from Page 3)
from the last time he was
there.
With his companions on the
American Friends Service Com-
mittee sponsored trip, Murphey
talked to people in the streets,
ate in restaurants, and wan-
dered wherever he pleased.
"In many cases we visited the
same institutions as other visi-
tors," Murphey remarks. "In
some places we even saw signs
in English."
Kun Mo-jo, vice chairman of
the standing committee of the
National People's Congress and
president of the Academics Si-
nica, told Murphey that Amer-
ican scholars are welcome in
China, but that the country is
not yet able to handle large
numbers of foreign visitors.
Few Chinese can be sent to
the United States, Kuo said, be-
cause they are "busy building
up their own country."
Asked about Chinese reaction
to U.S. bombing of North Viet-
namese targets near the Chi-
nese border, Murphy says they
are "trying to play it cool."
"They assume the Americans
are not going to bomb them di-
rectly," he adds.

and back
According to Murphey, the
prevailing Chinese attitude on
President Nixon's recent visit is
that "China had nothing to
lose by agreeing to receive him
-and to have the head of a
foreign state come and talk
peace. That they received him
as head of state does not mean
they approve of him or his poli-
cies."
Convinced after his China
visit that the NortheVietnamese
will persevere in the tndochina
war Murphey says, "They've
been fighting fors25years."
"One week's or a few weeks'
battles will not affect their long
run expectation," he says.
"What worries the Chinese".
ultimately, Murphey says, "is
Russia's nuclear capability."
"I think they are less uptight
about the United States," he
concludes.

sance studies. Students could
participate in the program by
taking courses, spending a period
of intensive study in the area,
or working out a major using
the courses offered in the pro-
gram.
Another proposal is the "340
Series"-a group of course cate-
gories which include a variety
of specific courses within each
area-.
Literature and culture offer-
ings would attempt to recreate
the sense of specific cultures
such as the English Renaissance
and the "beat movement" in
literature.

There is a large body of high-
quality writing which is connect-
ed to social and historical events,
and therefore falls between dis-
ciplines, Fraser said.
This type of writing never
gets taught in the standard cur-
riculum. which goes from "A
to B to C," he said.
"There will always be a need
for standard curriculum," Fras-
er stressed. "But maybe we can
try to loosen things up a little
-be a little more catholic."
