In Discussion Of Means
Of Reeducating Public
(Continued from Page 1)
or the curtailment of civil liberties
in order to conduct a war with the ut-
most speed and least loss of life,
Professor Fox said that it is the de-
gree to which civil liberties must be
sacrificed that is important. We
must realize, he said, that war is
terrible. Not only is there a high
rate on the battle field, but there
are long drawn out deaths resulting
from diseaes encountered in field
service, she added. The sooner the
war is ended, the better it is for all,
he asserted.
Must Discriminate
Professor Slosson observed that al-
though war inevitably and necessar-
ily involves great sacrifices of civil
liberties, we must beware of unnec-
essary sacrifices which don't facili-
tate the winning of the war. It is
vital, he declared, that we must dis-
criminate carefully between the things
which are not detrimental and those
that are.
In answer to the question on press
and propaganda: "Are we getting the
truth and to what degree?", Prof.
Mentor L. Williams of the English de-
partment, said the pitiful fact was
that most of the news is suppressed
before we get it. All information
received from the war-zone, he stated,
is obviously censored and is intended
to provoke sympathy from a non-
belligerent nation for the country
at war. Not only is the news written
to evoke sympathy, Professor Wil-
liams claimed, but to promote activi-
ties in the furtherance of the be-
ligerent's cause, even if it is neces-
sary to draw us into it.
Scorns First Impressions
Prof. Howard 'M. Ehrmann of the
history department emphasized the
necessity of placing less reliance on
the first headlines we see and on
the words of popular newscasters. It
is expecting too much to get accurate,
full information right at the mo-
ment, he declared. He suggested that
citizens make use of the library of
information of the b2elligerents to get
a better understanding of the war.
In speaking of press and propa-
ganda, Prof. Harlan MFarlan of
thetengineering department explained
that the issue was that of maldistri-
bution of the goods produced. "Our
distributive processes are ill ordered,"
he stated, "therefore there are vested
interests who would have the news
colored, so that we have certain biases
to ..look for in reading: the news."
Prof. ArthurrSmithies of the eco-
nomics department, stressed the value
of retaining one's objectivity in dis-
cussing the war on two points: On
the question of sympathy with the
belligerents and on the origin of the
war. He suggested that the word
aggression be eliminated because it
is put to non scientific use and it
arouses hatred and heat. He urged
that in order to make peace more
effective when the war closes the
United States should make no defin-
ite guarantees to establish peace un-
less it has guarantees that such a
peace would be lasting."

Professor Brumm chairm n of .the
question committee, promised yester-
day that "there will be nothing phoney
a ..:;ut the performance," drawing a
p Lure of a show "doubtless exhibit-
ing a wide range of expert knowledge,
completely nullified by abyssmal
depths of ignorance," and speeded up
by the "rooting propensities of an un-
inhibited student audience.".
He emphasized that students and]
members of the faculty are expected
to contribute to the general gaiety
by submitting questions of every type
and form, the only provisions being
that they bear answers and. steer,
clear of over-specialized material,
politically-controversial topics and
biblical quotations. All : questions
must reach Professor Brumm's of-
fice, 213 Haven Hall, before 6 p.m..
Friday, as the committee. will meet
Saturday morning to select, verify
and edit.
The author of each question used
will receive a copy of the University

submitting questions that stump the
experts will receive an addtiional

nations, he added, won an important
point for Bucharest when the value
of the German mark was set at the
old figure (instead of the new de-,
valued figure) for purposes of trade
between them.
Another reason for Russia's inter-
est in Bessarabia, Dr. Stanton point-!
ed out, is that this territory controls
the mouth of the important Danube,
River, giving to its owner a strangle-
hold on much of the commerce in
the large Danubian basin.
Russia's interest in Bessarabia, he
explained, dates back at least to the
close of the Napoleonic Wars, when
it first got control of the region. It
remained a part of Russia until the
Treaty of Brest-Litovsk at the close
of the World War, he added, when it
was given to Rumania.
To this day, however, Russia does
not recognize Rumanian sovereign-
ty in Bessarabia, Dr. Stanton de-
clared. Soviet maps, he added, still.
show the region as Russian territory.
Dr. Stanton also pointed to another
source of friction between Moscow
and Bucharest: the tiny northern
Rumanian province of Bukovina, for-
merly Austrian, but now including a
large Russian population.
