Student and Faculty Exchange
Is Advocated by Dr. Dreyfus

That reciprocal student and pro-
fessor exchange arrangements are
the best aid to the good neighbor pol-
icy is the opinion stated by Dr. Andre
Dreyfus, dean of the faculty of phil-
osophy, science and letters and pro-
fessor of general biology at the Uni-
versity of Sao Paulo, Brazil, in an
interview yesterday.
Speaking of inter-American rela-
tions, he said that the United States
is not known well enough in Brazil.
The movies are not sufficient, he
said, for they show only a part of
the life here and leave out the li-
braries and cultural aspect of the
country. Because of them, he added,.
Brazilians often get the idea that
Americans are very materialistic.
Send Children to Europe
Before the war wealthy Brazilians
used to send their children to Europe
to study, but never to the United
States, he explained, and the Uni-
versity of *Sao Paulo, for instance,
was started ten years ago with 20
European professors.
Now, he said, he is finding three or
four American professors to teach
there, and the only language re-
quirement for them is that they be
able to speak at least one Latin lan-
guage. It need not be Portuguese,
he said, for Brazilian university stu-
dents will understand whichever of
the Latin languages the professor
In sending students to the United
States, he said that he would choose

me to be as many reasons, if not
more, that suggest that parties,
instead of employing caution, may
become over-ambitious and indulge
in less scrupulous attempts to con-
trol the electoral processes.
I am not only opposed to Mr.
Scherman's proposal, Prof. Dorr stat-
ed, but I am also opposed to all pro-
posals, to limit a President to two
terms. There are some such limita-
tions, which apply to the reelection
of governors, but there is no evidence
in fact to indicate that administra-
tions have worked better with limita-
tions, than when there are no such
bars to reelection.
"If dangers of political dictator-
ship, which were suggested in sup-
port of the present proposal are valid,
they present an equally strong argu-
ment against a single reelection," he
added. "Therefore, it seems to me
that if we are going to reconsider the
matter of a presidential term, we
should also consider it as a question
of re-eligibility, whether it be for
first or second reelection.
"Better than attempting to eith-
er prevent or discourage a second
reelection, it would appear to me
to be more sound to lengthen the
original term to a period of six or
eight years, and forbid any reelec-
"The successful management of
public affairs would undoubtedly dic-
tate a term of more than the present
four years. That it might not be
unwise to suggest a single term of
eight or ten years, or that if there
appeared to be danger in the longer
term, we might once somewhere in
the middle years of the term, either
on a fixed date or on resolution of
the two houses, submit the question
of a continuation for the duration of
the term.
"We might hope in this way to get,
a referendum on issues and policies,
devoid of ordinary election year per-
sonality complexes. If on such a ref-
erendum the President secured a fav-
orable majority, he would continue in
office until the end of the term for
which he had been elected, In case a
majority unfavorable to the President
was returned the term would auto-
matically expire, and a new election
would be held in which the recalled
President would not be permitted to
be a candidate for reelection."
In my opinion some such disposi-
tion of the question would be far
more satisfactory and sound than
the proposal made by Mr. Scherman,"
Prof. Dorr concluded.
Al ,.

mainly "post-graduate students with
a good knowledge of English, so that
they could get the full benefit of
studying here."
Professors Hard To Choose
He said that professors for ex-
change arrangements are much more
difficult to choose, "but I think that
such arrangements are absolutely
necessary." He commented that Bra-
zil would probably send more stu-
dents here than the United States
would send to Brazil.
The University of Sao Paulo, he
said, is the only university in South
America with the full-time regime,
where the professor's only work is
at the university. He explained that
that university has the equipment
for students to work with, but that
their biggest problem is libraries.
The adult education there is pro-
gressing, he said, and there are now
night classes for adults.
Increasing exchange arrangements,
he stressed, should be made since
propaganda is not very effective.

at 8:30 p.m. Saturday in the Hillel
This is the third movie in a series
of Hillel motion picture programs.
When "Blockade" was released sev-
eral years ago, it caused some contro-
versy because of its political implica-
tions in regard to our policy of neu-
trality at that time.
Starring in this spy melodrama are
Henry Fonda, Madeleine Carroll, Leo
Carillo and John Halliday. "Sons of
Liberty," the story of Haym Solomon,
Philadelphia Jew, who raised $200,-
000 to help feed and equip George
Washington's forces during the Rev-
olutionary War, will follow the pre-
sentation of "Blockade." "The Black
Legion," a movie exposing the meth-
ods of fascist organizations in Amer-
ica, will conclude the program.
Admission to Saturday night's
show is free and the general public
is invited to attend.
