To Speak at
IRA Meeting
Race Problems~ in
U.S. To Be Topic
Race problems in the United
States take on a variety of forms,"
said Professor Leslie White, chair-
man of the Anthropology depart-
ment, in an interview concerning the
talk which he will deliver at a meet-
ing of Inter-Racial Association today
at Hillel Foundation.
Different Groups Ca~se Friction
So many different racial groups,
he stated, such as the Negroes, Chi-
nese, Japanese, Filipinos, Mexicans,
American Indians and so on, in
which friction can arise, tend to
magnify the problem. "This can be
differentiated," he stated, "from the
race problem' in Germany, where
merely two groups, the 'Aryan' and
the 'non-Aryan' are pitted against
one another. Thus, out problems can
manifest themselves in many differ-
ent ways"
Prof. White would distinguish be-
tween race as a biological concept
and as a sociological concept, in an
attempt to get at the basis of strife
between the groups.
Symptoms Cannot Solve Problems
"The problems," he added, "cannot
be alleviated merely by dealing with
the symptoms. We have to go deeper
to get at the cause. Friction arises
fromdsomething basic and a pro-
found change would have to be
brought about to do away with race
strife entirely."
The meeting. will begin at 7:30
p.m., and all members and their
friends are invited to attend. Re-
freshments will be served.

Philosophy of
Disc ussed byI
Prof Michael Pargment, of the
French department, discussed the
philosophy of Anatole France in the
second French lecture yesterday, held
under the auspices of Le Cercle
Anatole France, widely-read French
novelist, is commonly criticized as a
skeptic. Far from being a fault, this
skepticism was France's fundamen-
tal virtue, Prof. Pargment contended;
it precludes the violence of fanati-
cism. Those who tolerantly admit
that they themselves are not infalli-
ble do not commit the crimes against
humanity of a Hitler or a Robes-
pierre. France taught that men
should be tolerant, humble, humane;

Ideal Tank-Terrain for Push to Manila
Associated Press Correspondent
Wednesday, Jan. 10-Tens of thousands of U. S. Sixth Army forces,
accompanied ashore by Gen. Douglas MacArthur, landed Tuesday along
15 miles of Lingayen Gulf coast on Luzon Island from an 800-ship
convoy and pushed deep into flatlands leading 120 miles south to
Manila over ideal tank-war country.
Tanks were among the equipment put ashore in strength to make

FLAGSHIP, Lingayen Gulf, Philip-

amphibious operation of the Pacific
war an invasion fleet of some 800
ships under Vice-Adm. Thomas Kin-

attack the Japanese could contrive
to return Gen. Douglas MacArthur's
forces to Luzon Island.
The giant convoy, one-third larger
than the force which invaded Leyte,
was under enemy observation from
the time it started. Japanese air-

'May Materially Affect Nazi Ability To Resist'

By The Associated Press
Jan. 9-Lt. Gen. Omar N. Bradley,
breaking his silence regarding the
German counteroffensive which was
aimed at splitting the Allied line in
his 12th Army group sector, said to-
day that -the now-thwarted enemy
move "may materially affect the
Germans' ability to resist."j
Gen. Bradley, who was awarded
the bronze star by General Eisen-
hower today for his part in halt-
ing the Germans, stated at a press
conference that Germany's ability
to prolong the war may have been
reduced, but added quickly that
this did not mean the Allies could
"assume the Germans are on the
verge of collapse."
There is much hard fighting ahead,
Bradley warned.
Bradley told newsmen covering his
group headquarters that in leaving
