Essentials For Leadership
Some of the essentials, Dean Ken-
iston said, are marked by the flexible
mind, tolerance, compassion, and the
subjection of personal considerations
for the good of the larger community,
a concept which also must be applied
to international problems.
After tracing the development of
the liberalcarts from the Middle
Ages to the present, Dean Keniston
discussed the curriculum of the pres-
ent liberal arts college which con-
tains all major fields of intellectual
experience. This intellectual experi-
ence, according to DeantKeniston,
can best be supplied by the liberl
arts which contributes a balance of
living, the ability to weigh and judge
abstractions, and the. most import-
ant, a liberal understanding which
makes it possible for peoples of the
world to find common grounds and
thus to achieve "a world of decent
Concludes With Challenge
Dean Keniston concluded his ad-
dress with a challenge to the initi-
ates to "pledge devotion in your seV-
eral careers to the broad liberal edu-
cation essential to the peace of our
own land and to the peace of the

MANILA, Wednesday, May 16.-
Fighting so savage that Americans
attacked Japanese with bayonets,
knives and their fists, with at least
two Yanks drowning enemy troops
by holding their heads below wa-
ter on a river, raged west of Davao
city on Mindanao island today.
American ground troops and naval
fliers have scored heavily against the
Japanese on bloody Okinawa Island,
on Mindanao in the Philippines and
within the Nippon Empire itself.
Official U.S. communiques and
front line reports late Tuesday
from roaring battle areas were
highlighted by these developments:
American troops have freed most
of Mindanao island, Philippines.
Heavy fighting continued en Ok-
inawa. The Yanks beat off fanati-
cal counterattacks and stopped the
Japanese dead in hand-to-hand

Prepares for

Spirit was the keynote otthe fresh-

in preparation for the first wartime
edition of the Class Games classic
to :.be held May 26 at Ferry Field.
.Vic Heyliger, hockey mentor. and
Earl Riskey, of the intra-mural de-
partment, addressed a group of over
50 freshman in an attempt to- build
up still more spirit. "If 'the games
are successful this year, they my
well be a natural. carry over in f-
ture years," Heyliger said.
Proclamation Drawn Up
Dick Mixer of the Union staff
handed out proclamations to those
atten'ding to be passed 'out to soph-
omores. "You are doomed! Victory
will be ours! Back where thou cam-
est, o lowly ones. Our success will
be'" easy!" were among the strong-
worded oaths in the proclamation,
keeping in tradition with previous
proclamations. A large copy of the
proclamation will be placed on the
pole in the center of the diagonal.
"It's up to you boys to defend it,"
said Mixer.
Varied Games
Among the games pianned are a
tug-of-war, volleyball, using a-high
net and a ball of extra-large size,
graveyard, in which the classes will
attempt to throw opponents to a
large mat, and a leap frog relay. The
two classes will line up and pass the
lightest man in the class to the rear
in the human forward pass.
It was also decided that Freshmen
will wear white shirts next week to
distinguish themselves.
"The two classes are of about
equal number," Heyliger said, "so
get out and fight!"

Mutual Defense
Treaty Planned
By Unitedl States
SAN FRANCISCO, May 15.-(A)3-
Secretary of State Stettinius an-
nounced tonight the United States
plans to invite other American re-
publics to join in a mutual defense
treaty arrangement under supervi-
sion of a proposed world peace-keep-
ing organization.
In a statement proposing regional
arrangement amendments to the
Dumbarton Oaks formula, Stettin-
ius said this government would ask
its western hemisphere neighbors to
join in negotiating a treaty "consis-
tcnt with the. ch arter of the world
He said this action would be taken
at the conclusion of the United Na-
tions Conference iere.
Stettifts' announcement implied
approval by the Latin-Americani
nations of a formula under which
- the wartime Inter-Amierican De-
fense Agreement would be placed
in operation under the proposed
world organization. Future treaty
agreements of the same nature
would be carried out under the
wing of the International League.
The charter amendment to be
offered with the unanimous support
of the American delegation would
provide that nothing in the_ new
league's charter should impair "the
inherent right of self defense, either
individual or collective, in the event
that the security council (of the
world organization) does not ain-
tain international peace and security
and armed attack against a member
state occurs."
Measures to be taken under this
self-defense authority would be re-
ported immediately to the council
and would "not in any way affect
the authority and responsibility of
charter to take at any time such
action as it may deem necessary
in order to maintain or restore
international peace and security."
It was not made clear immediately
whether this proposed ameindment
has the support of others of the
Big Five powers.

The chief executive made the state-

Domestically, the President spoke

to have anthracite coal by whatever
steps are needed Ito get it, and said
the veterans administration is going
to be modernized and expanded, but
that no immediate discharges of

Stettinius simultaneously reaffirm-
ed the American position in favor of
giving dependent peoples self-govern-
ment when they are ready for it.
Discuss Trusteeship
The secretary of state met the
press as the big five powers-Russia,
Britain, China, France and the Unit-
ed States-tried off-stage for agree-
ments that would cross the trustee-
ship and regional security issues off
the list of conference problems. But
they had to wait for guidance from
London and Moscow for the British
and Soviet delegations.
Stettinius used the interval for an-
other consultation with Latin Amer-
ican foreign ministers on the ques-
tion of blending a Pan-American
Security Plan into a world peace-
keeping organization.
Conference committees, clogged
with scores of proposed amendments
to a world charter for peace, contin-
ued a fast pace of day and, night ses-
sions. Some were debating issues on
which they had argued for days.
Some were near votes on important
segments of a charter.
Committee decisions now coming
up will show how far little nations
are going to get in wangling more
authority for themselves in charting
the course of the postwar world.

Sh-urileff Presents Three C's
Of Metropolitan Planng

"The great significance of modern
city planning is in the three C's of
Completeness, Coordination, and
Continuity," declared Prof. Flavel
Shurtleff, of the Massachusetts In-
stitute of Technology, yesterday at
the Rackham Building in his lecture
"The Field of Town Planning" spon-
sored by the School of Architecture
and Design.
Prof. Shurtleff stressed that plan-
ning must be done with the whole
city in view and that planners must
be continually on the alert to change
the plans to keep up with the times.
"It is also important," he said, "for
planners to keep in mind the -rela-
tionship of parts of the community
to the whole."
"Too often," he pointed out,
"schools are built with no room for
playgrounds or at a busy intersec-
tion." He said that the basic con-
ception of city planning is that it
is for the people and must be ade-
quate for the people's needs.
Public Participation
Success in town planning depends
upon public understanding and par-
ticipation, Prof. Shurtleff declared.
"The more public interest, the bet-
ter the project," he said. Hetold
how Boston aroused public interest
in its city planning by offering a
$5,000 prize for the best city plan.
Over 92 teams sent in entries, he
said. While the first prize plan will
probably not be carried out in one-
fourth of its detail, he said, the con-
test was successful for its aroused
public interest. Prof. Shurtleff stress-
ed the importance of having sociolo-
gists, lawyers, and businessmen in-
t.rctPr in nannin~ fr iti a no+t

are responsible to the city council or
Too often city planning boards are
created but are given no appropria-
tion to work with, Prof. Shurtleff
pointed out. Lip service is not
enough, he said, and boards must be
voted appropriations to have a fair
chance to succeed.
