Hyma Advises Against U. S.
Intervention in Java Strife
By PHYLLIS KAYE
"The only time the United States
should interfere in a regional prob-
lem such as the Dutch and British
face in the Javanese revolution would
be if the two countries involved
made an absolute mess of the matter
and refused to give their colonies the
independence that has been promised
them," Prof. Albert Hyma of the his-
tory department stated yesterday.
"Dr. Soekarno, the leader of the
revolt, and his associates represent
only five per cent of the country's
population," he explained, "there-
fore, they do not indicate the true
opinions of the people."
To Give First
Dorothy Ornest, '44SM, will give
her first New York performance
November 25 as a guest of the New
Friends of Music in Town Hall, ap-
pearing as the soprano in Brahms'
The other members of the ensemible
are Nancy Fishburn, contralto; Rich-
ard Manning, tenor; Hugh Thomp-
son, baritone and Erich Itor Kahn
and Konrad Wolf, pianists.
Miss Ornest, who received her
Bachelors degree in Voice and Piano
from the Eastman School of Music,
studied here -with Prof. Arthur Hack-
ett. She took her Masters degree in
Music here in June, 1944.
She appeared as the "mother" in
the Michigan Repertory Players' pro-
duction of "Hansel and Gretel" in
the summer of 1943 and was starred
in their production of "The Chocolate
Soldier" the following summer.
Miss Ornest, who is Mrs. Robert
Feldman in private life, is now study-
ing with Theresa Behr Schnabel, the
wife of the well-known pianist, Artur
Schnabel. She is a member of Mu
Phi Epsilon and Pi Kappa Lambda,
honorary musical societies, and Phi
Kappa Phi, national honorary scho-
There are 137 different races and
languages in the Dutch East Indies
and 70 million people, of which 45
million live in Java. Of these 282 are
native Mohammedan rulers who have
the rightful authority over the people,
he said. These Sultans and their sub-
jects were content with the Dutch
rule and have made no move to revolt.
Calls Rebels 'Extremists'
"The only reason that the extrem-
ist native elements have had this op-
portunity to rebel is that they have
arms and a radio voice to explain
themselves to the outside world,"
Prof. Hyma said. "The actual Javan-
ese authorities do not have weapons
because the Japanese, wishing to do
as much damage as possible to the
Dutch, turned their arms over to il-
legal factions in the country. In ad-
dition, the native Sultans have no
way in which they can make them-
selves heard since they have no in-
struments of propaganda."
"Dr. Soekarno is not a bad man
even though he was in Japan and
was subject to its influence, even to
the extent of worshipping at a Shinto
shrine. The Japanese had a school in
Tokyo to train the natives of Java
and foster feeling against the white
race, but no one has accused Soe-
karno of receiving training there,"
Prof. Hyma continued. "However, he
has been lying a great deal and try-
ing to appease both the Americans
and the Japs. I believe he really has
the best interests of his country at
"Dr. Soekarno's revolution is noth-
ing more, actually, than the releasing
of post-war tension and no cabinet
or presidency can be legal without an
election: Therefore, since the Dutch
are morally obliged to establish the
independence of Java as they have
promised, we should leave matters
alone and allow them to work their
own solution. Independence should
be granted as quickly as possible, but
that, too, is the problem of Holland."
Prof. Hyma was knighted by Queen
Wilhelmina nine years ago for his re-
search work on the Netherlands. He
has written several books on Dutch

A Tim To Give
Dr. and Mrs. Harry Overstreet,
adult educators, who are at the pres-
ent time conducting a program of
four eight-week series of lectures and
discussions at the Rackham Educa-
tional Memorial in Detroit, said in a
recent interview that the real pur-
pose of their work is "to make true
democrats, to give individuals a
larger individuality and save them
from the littleness of self-concern."
Dr. and Mrs. Overstreets' courses
focus attention on. the individual,
the one on Personality Develop-
ment being especially well at-
tended. "During a war people feel
herded, pushed into artificial un-
ity," they explained. After a war
there is a natural reaction tending
to turn the interest toward the in-
dividual instead of "impersonal
social and political issues and in-
This attention to the individual
can be tragic, or it can be very hope-
ful, they feel. It will be hopeful if
the individual acquires "an enlarge-
ment of understanding so he can live
in an atomic age." Dr. Overstreet
said, "Today's world requires a new
kind of individual, one with the
power to see things from a world
point of view." It is this kind of in-
dividual the Overstreets are trying to
develop in their work.
Furthermore, Mrs. Overstreet
continuned, "we are trying to make
people invulnerable to the political
rabble-rousers like Hitler." The
people of Germany followed Hitler
like sheep, and the same thing
could happen here. Dr. Overstreet
feels that if a depression should
come after this past war, and a
convincing "man on horseback"
should arise, we could very easily
have a fascist movement in this
Dr. and Mrs. Overstreet conduct
their classes together in a manner
which they admit is quite unconven-
tional. One of the things they like
about their method is the fact that
if they get a new idea in the course
of a class, they are free to follow it
and consider it. They feel that bet-
ter thinking is possible under the
stimulus of a class than by "going
off in a corner to think."

FOR FUTURE SECURITY:
Malott Suggests Commission
To Study National Defense
Deane . Malott, Chancellor of
the University of Kansas, now writ-
ing as a private citizen, suggests that
the President appoint a small civilian
commission to study the broad prob-
lem of national defense. Such a com-
mission should be composed of dis-
tinguished scientists, civic leaders
and spokesmen for labor, industry
Upon the proposal to establish unir
versal military training, the President
and the military leaders appear to
base their plans for our future secur-
Skilled Technicians Used
The present war was fought by
highly skilled technical men. Both
the army and navy specialists were
given programs of training varying
in length from a few weeks to several
years. Basic training, however, never
extended over more than a few weeks.
What then will be done in the pro-
posed twelve-months period? Chan-
cellor Malott points out that if to
this training there is added (as
seems likely) work in vocational edu-
cation, the taxpayer would be asked
to duplicate in part the already com-
plex public education system of this
It would seem wiser to utilize the
curricula of existing educational in-
stitutions and add to them any need-
ed work in military training, rather
than to superimpose on a purely mili-
tary program studies and techniques
which are commonly found in civilian
Important Points Cited
"The mobilization of industry and
material," Chancellor Malott writes,
"the dispersal of highly concentrated
and exposed industrial areas, the con-
tinuance of a broad program of scien-
tific research-these are equally as
important as amassing bodies of
troops." We need an integrated plan,
not alone an isolated man-power pro-
gram. We should not attempt to put
any part of a defense plan into opera-
tion until we have envisaged the
whole. The formation of a civilian
To Close Tomorrow
The annual Hillel membership
drive which opened last Wednesday
will continue through tomorrow,
committee members of Hillel Foun-
commission such as Chancellor Ma-
lott suggests, would consider the im-
portant factors of production and re-
search as well as attempt to learn
the best methods of securing and
training a future fighting force. If
we pass national defense legislation
based upon a study made by such a
committee, America may realistically,
intelligently and confidently prepare
for the eventualities of an unknown

The debate team will continue its
war program of inter-state debates
with other Michigan colleges, or with
