Bias Held'Bar
Of Human Race
Two Ways Of Achieving
Lasting Peace Outlined
By ProfessorAngell
One Language Urged
A world brotherhood of humanity
is unlikely until people over the world
come to realize that other peoples
have a similar human nature, Prof.
Robert C. Angell of the sociology de-
partment said yesterday in elabora-
tion of a previous statement.
Dictators, by preaching race hat-
reds and the need for new conquests
of other nations, are the greatest
menace to ideals of world coopera-
tion, he went on. Before these can
come, peoples must be able to respect
each other and to feel at home with
all other peoples of the world.
Human Nature The Same
The basis of the theory that every-
body has the same human nature,
Professor Angell explained, is in the
fact that all people grow up in the
same primary groups. Everybody's
first contacts are with the family and
with intimate playfellows and friends.
In such groups people trust others
like themselves and have confidence
in thei because they know them and
feel no mystery about them.
When it comes to people of foreign
nations, however, he continued, peo-
ple lose this feeling of sympathy and
understanding. People in foreign na-
tions speak different languages, wear
different clothes, have different types
of homes, They are far off and never
come into contact with people of
the home nation.
There are two ways by which world
peace may come about, in Professor
Angell's opinion. First, the cultural
differences themselves may in the
long run be ironed out, but there will
have to be a common language, a
common religion, and a common way
of living.
The other way,.in which world
brotherhood might be achieved is ap-
preciation of the common human na-
ture ien have. People might get to
feel at homewith people of other
nations as they feel at home with
members of their own primary
groups, Professor Angell continued
to explain. This would require get-
ting beneath the cultural differences
to an appreciation of the essential
human qualities of the foreigner.
Bias Must Be Removed
Economic factors, he stressed, are
of course the most immediate causes
of war, but added that those fac-
tors would tend to disappear if all
peoples really felt their common
Before there is ever a world bro-
therhood, people must get to feel at
home with people of other nations
in their own personal experiences
with them, he declared. World bro-
therhood will be achieved, Professor
Angell concluded, when international
bias is removed by all peoples recog-
nizing that they are part of the great
common humanity of men as indi-
vidual human beings.

Varsity Night
And Concert
Student and professional talent vie
for audience appeal this week.
Varsity Night, the annual amateur
show sponsored by the Michigan band

headlines Tuesday night. Fred Law-
ton, co-author of "Varsity," will ac
as master of ceremonies for the pro-
gram, half of which is tobe devoted
to the higher things in the musical
world, the other to the whims of
stage-struck undergraduates in quest
of prize money. Skits and acts of all
kinds have been promised.
Rachmaninoff To Play
Jazz and the classis compete for
leisure time Wednesday night. Both
the weekly Swing Session and Sergi
Rachmaninoff (in the first Choral
Union Concert) are scheduled. In the
afternoon there will be an organ re-
cital in Hill Auditorium by Palmer
Christian, of the music school.
Rachmaninoff, familiar to most
people through his Prelude in C Min-
or, is declared to be at the height of
his career as a conductor, a pianist
and a composer. Although his au-
stere appearance would indicate in-
terpretations of the brilliant cold, me-
chanically perfect type, exactly the
opposite is true. His exeution is fault-
tless, but he imbues his numbers with
an emotional warmth that is unsur-

"Excursion," Play Production's in-
itial offering of the year, opens

play, tale of a Long Island excursion

e Student Organizations: Officers of
student organizations are reminded
xthat only such organizations as are

Smoking in University Buildings:
Attention is called to the general rule
that smoking is prohibited in Uni-
versity buildings except in private of-
fices and assigned smoking rooms
where precautions can be taken and
control exercised. This is neither a
m'ere arbitrary regulation nor an at-
tempt to meddle with anyone's per-
sonal habits. It is established and
enforced solely with the purpose of'
preventing fires. In the last five years,
15 of the total of 50 fires reported, or
30 per cent, were caused by cigarettes
or lighted matches. To be effective,
the rule must necessarily apply to
bringing lighted tobacco into or

through University buildings and to University buildings against fires. I
