Battling in the Union: A
bloodless Worid War I1

let people know that for every
glory there is so much more
stress and strain," Finley said.
"There is a difference between
reading and recreating. In our
recreation there was no blood
btut still there was the tension."
Their recent 'recreated war
began in August 1939 with Ger-
many's attack of Poland, and
ended in a draw in the summer
of 1942, To cover the three year
period took seven days and
over 150 hours of playing time,
"We called it quits when we
found we had made a blunder
in the rules," Finley said.
"You always should read -the
rules," he joked.

it had gone on for the full dur-

and there is no way anyone
could win with that attitude,"
"It's amazing Stalin could

he was so despondent," he said

ed and his smoking habit rose
dramatically. Usually a one or

during the soar he increased to
a pack and a half daily.
"We tried out a lot of things.
We tried to change history, but
the farther we got along the
more we found it could not be
done," Finley said.
"Could it have been differ-
ent? Possibly. There are a lot
of if's - but that's history,"
he continued.

replay of the original. This time
around, Germany caused Po-
land to fall in three weeks ra-
ther than the original four;
Russia attacked Finland and
Finland attacked Russia and an
aggressive France didn't allow
Paris to fall. But, this is over
30 years later.
Finley finds there are lessons
to be learned in simulating the
war citing the strategic devel-
opments, the tensions which
cause errors and the drive to
victory and glory.
The players learn that the
pressure they put-tuponthem-
selves for a quick victory in
Africa or an early end to the
war often leaves them vulner-
able in other areas. At one
point England was so busy pro-
tecting the Suez, that England

stemming from the e n e r g y
crisis, he said, "it wilt mark a
tragic watershed in America's
relationship to it's alliances."
The former secretary of state
stressed that the energy crisis
has placed the entire spectrum
of U.S. foreign policy as it
weakens world democracies, un-
dermines the e c on om y and
"frustrates the hope for pro-
gress of developing nations."
THE U.S. must act now to
make itself the leader in over-
coming energy problems and
combating pressures placed on
the world economy by oil-pro-
ducing nations before the prob-
lem is out of tontrol, he said.
D u r i n g his 45-minute long
speech, Kissinger called for de-
velopment of a national energy
strategy which would include
conservation, development of
new fuel supplies and coopera-
tion among consumer nations to
provide economically feasible
fuel supplies for all democratic
Kissinger said, however, that

leum Exporting Countries

lars, they are not invulnerable

countries. Oil producers need
markets for their oil and eco-
nomic problems in importing na-
tions will also have financial
impact on the exporting coun-
tries and their overseas invest-
ments, he explained.
"Energy conservation and the
reduction of the West's oil im-
port requirements are as much
in the producers' long-term in-

more than anything else."

also urged the development of

During a question and answer

to comment on specific aspects
of the program.

And come out knowing something's wrong. it happened to
me. The doctor found what I couldn't even feel,... a little
lump under my arm. iff1 had put off the appointment for
one reason or another, I probably wouldn't be here today.
Because that little lump I couldn't feel was a melanoma, a
highly aggressive form of cancer that spreads very quickly.
It's curable-but only if found in time.
