Speaker Rayburn (Dem.-Texas)
announced that a copy could not be

the members agreed to adjourn.
Rayburn said the roll call ballots
on final passage will be the first order
of business at tomorrow's session,
which starts at noon (EST)).
Hoffman told newspapermen he
insisted on reading of the engrossed
bill because "the House is voting
without adequate consideration of la-
bor legislation." He added:
"We have been fussing about labor
legislation for six years, and now we
won't give even a week to its consider-
ation. Out of all this confusion I'd
like for the members of the House to
know what is in the Case Bill before
they finally act upon it."

Prof. William B. Willcox of the his-

"We should combine cultures that
shriek disharmoniously into one
great harmony as in a Bach fugue,"
Prof. Palmer A. Throop, of the De-
partment of History, said yesterday
in a talk at the Lester Co-op.
Speaking on "Historical Differ-
ences in Social Reform," Prof.
Throop said that' 'we must be able

such as the Suez Canal, the Medi-
terranean area and South Africa.
"Britain has always resented, for
example, any attempt on the part of
Russia to extend her influence in the
east Mediterranean area, around the
Balkans or anywhere in the direction
of India," Prof. Willcox pointed out.
The present sore spots causing
trouble at the UNO conference are
the very ones that have been areas of
friction in the past as far as England
is considered, he contended. The mu-
tual interests of Russia and Britain
in the same areas have inevitably
"For instance, for more than a
century England has been inter -
ested in Greece', which is on a
major route to India. She also has
been concerned about Turkey and
the Dardanelles. The Palestine
question is so important because of
its strategic relationship to the
Suez Canal, also a major route to
India," Prof. Willcox added.
The present fight over Iran is of
vital concern to Great Britain be-
cause it is near enough to India to
make the British sensitive to any
Russian influence there, he declared.
As a whole, it may be stated that the
majority of British expansion in the
19th century began from way staitons
to India, such as Capetown and Suez.
"While I do not intend to defend
all aspects of British imperialism,"
Prof. Willcox said, "this desire to
maintain areas of influence outside
of England proper is not abnormal.
The British interest in the east
Mediterranean may be compared
with our concern over the area
arcund the Isthmus of Panama."
