If the United States allpws fear of
Germany to dictate its foreign policy,
the reign of our nation as a world
power will soon come to an end, Prof.
Lawrence Preuss of the political sci-
ence department declared yesterday
in an address to the Ann Arbor Ro-
tary Club.
If we refuse to repeal the arms em-
bargo because we are afraid the Nazis
will sabotage our factories we have
deservedly earned the title of "de-
cadent democracy,"' he asserted.
"Many persons who say they favor
the present neutrality law are merely
afraid that Germany will not respect
our rights if a change is made, but
feel certain that England and France
will continue to heed our warnings,"
Professor Preuss argued.
"I believe that the foreign policy
suggested by President Roosevelt is
the correct one because it enables us
to build safeguards against nations
which seem intent on war," he de-
clared.
Repeal is the wisest foreign policy,
he stated, "but it must be combined

with a modified form of a cash and
carry system."
Laying a groundwork for his con-
clusions, Professor Preuss traced the
history of the United States' foreign
policy from the Civil War to today.,
He claimed that President Roosevelt's
program today is a symptom of a
creed our country adopted in 1932
which said that "our nation has the
privilege of discriminating against
the nation at fault."
We fought the World War presum-
ably to protect our "neutral rights,"
Professor Preuss continued, "but this
creed of impartiality has changed to
one of selection of aggressors."
Pawlowski Gives Talk
Prof. Felix W. Pawlowski of the-
aeronautical engineering department
lectured on modern high-speed avia-
tion Monday before students of the
Department of Aeronautical Engi-
neerin at Wayne University. The
lecture was sponsored by the Uni-
versity Extension Service.

IAS To Show
Airplane Film
Tickets For Performance
Are Available Today
"The American Way," a sound pic-
ture depicting the many phases of
commercial air transportation, will
be shown at 7:30 p.m. today in the
Rackham Building Auditorium under
the auspices of the Michigan branch
of the Institute of Aeronautical Sc.i-
ences.

tained free at the aeronautical en-
gineering office in Room B47 of the

Produced by American Airlines, the
film is designed to answer the public's
misunderstandings on air travel, and
to demonstrate to those who have
flown little, if at all, how efficiently
and dependably a modern airline
operates.
With the one restriction of the lim-

cordially invited to attend the show-
ing of this film.
