Reeducation of German Youth
Is Possible Says Newcomb

Pointing out that a great majority
of the German people had become
anti-Nazi by conviction when their
nation surrendered, Prof. Theodore
Newcomb of the sociology depart-
ment, expressed the views that the
German youth can be re-educated
and that the American Army of Oc-
cupation had been fairly successful
except on the political front.
Prof. Newcomb, who recently re-
turned from Europe where he par-
ticipated in a study of the morale
of the German people, revealed
these views, which are contrary to
reports of correspondents who
maintain that Germans who ex-
press such convictions do so only
through fear, in an interview yes-
He believes that the political situa-
tion is improving since General Eis-
enhower is removing Nazi officials
who were kept in power by American
authorities whose tendencies were to
keep in power those who could do the
job best without regard to their poli-
tical affiliations.
Prof. Newcomb declared that the
political future of Germany rests
in the hands of those Germans who
passively'followed Hitler during his
years of power without being vic-
tims of the Nazi ideology. These
groups form the largest proportion
of the population, lying between
those who were, and always will be,
indifferent to government and the
small percentage of convinced, fa-
natical Nazis.
This last section formed the bul-
wark of Hitler's supporters from 1921
to 1942, the year when he reached the
Auto Dealers Seek
WASHINGTON, Nov. 13 - (W) -
Price Administrator Chester Bowles
accused auto dealers today of a high
pressure lobby campaign to gain ex-
emptions from the OPA policy which
requires retail merchants to absorb
part of higher production costs.
He announced that the dealers' de-
mands are being rejected. He added
that price ceilings for new automo-
biles, to be announced Thursday.

height of his power domestically, in-
ternationally and on the military
front. "After the defeats at Stalin-
grad and at El Alemain in 1942, and
after the entry of the United States
into the war," Prof. Newcomb stated,
"the people began to lose hope, until,
in 1944, with the day-by-day bomb-
ings of their cities, the overwhelming
majority of the German people had
no confidence in the possibility of
"Nevertheless, the war continued,
and bombs kept falling after nearly
all Germans were convinced that it
was useless to go on fighting. Hence,
they began to direct their resent-
ment against Nazi leadership." Dur-
ing the war, Prof. Newcomb stressed,
active anti-Nazi underground organ-
izations definitely existed.
According to Prof. Newcomb, the
role of education in Germany will

group, those under twenty," he
stated, "with whom we shall be
able to work. While the people in
their late twenties and thirties pros-
pered under Hitlerism, the younger
age groups suffered nothing but
Though they have been unwittingly
indictrinated with Nazi ideologies,
they are not sadistic by nature,_and
Prof. Newcomb believes that, using
the proper methods, the youth of
Germany can be reeducated.

"Colombia is a socially conscious
republic." Prof. Staubach continued.
"For the past four to eight years it
has had a New Deal type of govern-
ment, instituted by formed President
Lopez. In addition the government
has sponsored co-ops of all kinds, 17
of which are located in Bogota, and a
plan is now afoot to establish co-ops
in all retail fields."
The Colombians, he explained,
are great admirers of our technical
and economic accomplishments.
They draw on technological ad-
vances made in the United States,
so that their engineers and medi-
cal men can improve upon what has
already been done. The develop-
ment of the Good Neighbor policy
has won ever many Colombians
from suspicion to open admiration
for this country's political and so-
cial life.
One aspect of life in Colombia that
Americans would do well to emulate is
"to allow in our business and profes-
sional life more room for art and in-
tellectual interests" Prof. Staubach
said. "Many a business transaction
in Colombia has been executed over
a cup of coffee and a book of poetry."
Criticizing the attitude of many
American tourists in Latin Amer-
ica, Prof. Staubach suggested that
"much less ill will be created if
travelers will be a little less noisy,
will have less of a tendency to
laugh at what they find strange,
will keep unfavorable reactions to
themselves and suppress a com-
monly noted tendency toward ar-
Exhi bit Shows
Building Trends
Russian Architecture
Displayed at Rackham
A gradual refinement of the ultra-
modern trends in building of the
post-revolutionary era marks one of
the high points of the exhibit on Rus-
sian architecture displayed by the
School of Architecture and Design,
according to Prof. Wells Bennett,
dean of the school. This exhibit is
open to the public from 2 to 5 p. m.
and 7 to 10 p. m. through Nov. 18
in the mezzanine galleries of the
Rackham Building.
In an attempt to show. the various
periods-,of Russian building, this dis-
play takes in early pre-medieval
structure with its Byzantine and
Oriental influences up to the tremen-
dous development of Soviet power
and industry, also including pictures
of Renaissance structures which are
reminiscent of the old south.
The familiar round onion-shaped
domes of the churches, made entirely
for light effect, is characteristic of
the introductory section of the e-
hibit. "The panels of eighteen cen-
tury building are devoted to showing
the end of Russian isolation and the
merging of Western and native
styles," stated Prof. Bennett, "while
the whole display tells a good story of
Russian life in general. A clear pic-
ture of present development and cul-
tural background can be told by the
architecture of a people."
. Dr. Bennett observed that the ex-
tensive use of glass for effect is quite
apparent in their modern structures.
This is rather difficult to understand,
he continued, because the extreme
ranges of the climate make the pas-
sage of cold and heat through this
medium very easy.
"The community apartment settle-
ments are representative of their
newer type of housing," Prof. Ben-
nett stated. "The popularity of a
balcony for each family unit of the
apartment seems to be typical of the

European style of building. In the
early rustic structures, the village'log
cabins were a point of interest. These
"isbushki' 'were a peculiar combina-
tion of the primitive form with orna-
ment of the Renaissance era."
