"The situation would be somewhat
alleviated if Congress were to extend
the unused balance of the 1945-1946
quota, combining it with the 1946-
1947 quota. The anti-alien move-
ment in this country, however, is
strong enough to prevent any liberal-
ization of our immigration laws or
to allow the combining of the resi-
dual of this year's quota with that
of the nett fiscal year.

immigrants, would be unwilling to
accept many Jews. The Afrikanders

Men Urged To
Sign for Spring
Orientation, Ai
University Needs
Volunteer Advisors
All men who have been on campus
one semester are urged by Chuck
Helmick, head of men's orientation,
to become orientation advisors for
the new group of men entering the
University for the spring semester.
Thus far, Helmick announced, only
seven men have volunteered for the
task through the Union, and 10 men
have been signed by the Veteran's
"We need 50 men to do the job ade-
quately," he said, "and all who are in-
terested are urged to call the Stu-
dent Offices in the Union any time
this week and leave their names."
Arrangements have been made to
have veterans advise incoming groups
of veterans and civilians head groups
made up of civilian men.
Men who volunteer should return
to campus Feb. 24 to attend an intro-
ductory lecture to be given at 4:00
p.m. in Rrn. 107 Mason Hall by Prof.
Philip Bursley, director of the orien-
tation period.
Men who head orientation groups
will be given meal tickets for the pro-
gram which officially begins Feb. 25
and extends through March 1.
"This will offer an opportunity,"
Helmick said, "for all men to help the
University in a tremendous task."

Spiain Should
Be IkIIIse4
Equal S taus
"I do not believe Spain and Argen-
tina should be given an equal place in
the pormal political and economic re-
lations of other nations until they
reorganize their governments," Prof.
Preston Slosson of the history depart-
mnent stated yesterday.
However, he declared, I see no rea-
son why we shouldn't sell planes to
Spain which cannot be used for mili-
tary purposes.
'It is not probable," Prof. Slosson
said, "that Spain, which was the cen-
ter of Europe in the 16th century,
will ever again rise to such power.
Her strength is no longer essential to
waging war and she was the largest
European country to stay out of both
world wars."
Nevertheless, he claimed, no coun-
try is to small to be a sore spot and
Spain, or Argentina, could be the
cause of a third world war, merely be-
cause of its weakness rather than its
"For instance," Prof. Slosson cited,
"The first world war was started by
trouble in Serbia and the second in
Poland. Both are comparatively small
and unimportant countries. The
Spanish Civil War almost caused this
last war to start prematurely."
"Therefore," he concluded, "both
Spain and Argentina should be treat-
ed as countries on probation until
they become more democratic."

tion or its Amendments and By-Laws.

"some slight alteration in curricu-
