MASSES MISLED:
Propaganda Cited by Student
As Cause for Holy Land Unrest

Hall To Speak on Area Studies

By BETTE HAMILTON
"If propaganda among the ig-
norant Arab masses was not so set
against the Jews there would be
peace in Palestine," claims Miss
Yona Yoshpe, University student
from Hadera, Palestine.
Miss Yoshpe comes from a small
town near Tel Aviv which is sur-
rounded by Arab villages. She said
that the Arabs walk freely among
the Jews and relations are friend-
ly.
Believe Propaganda
"The main trouble is that the
Arab people believe their leaders'
propaganda against the Jews in
spite of the many situations where
the Arabs and Jews are working
together in harmony," she said.
Miss Yoshpe pointed out the fact
,that Arab leaders have almost
complete control over the thinking
of the masses.
Treatment of Women
The culture of the Arabs is il-
lustrated by their treatment of
women, she stated. "They are
slaves, bought and sold, with no
education or life of their own,
Some still maintain the custom of
veiling their faces and are com-
pletely submissive to the men."
Concerning the Jewish youth in
Palestine, Miss Yoshpe explained'
k that a majority of the youth de-
sire to form new collective settle-
ments.
"For this work they join youth
organizations at the age of about
10 or 12 and about the age of 18
spend a period of two or three
years training at an established
settlement. Here they form a nu-
cleus and when they receive funds
from the Jewish National Fund
they form a new collective settle-
ment," she continued.
The Arabs have begun a pro-

gram similar to the Jewish youth
organization, Miss Yoshpe says,
but the lack of education and
training has made the establish-
ment of collective settlements im-
possible.
Center Will Hold
Folk Dance Class
Instruction in European and
Latin American folk dances will
be offered by the International
Center and Westminster Guild at
a dancing class to be held at the
Center.
Chico Kennedy and Bill Miller
will direct the class. The conga,
rumba and dances of Mexico and
Russia will be among those in-
cluded in the course.

The first of a weekly series of
programs on Current Research in
the Social Sciences will be held
with Prof. Robert B. Hall of the
geography department discussing
"Area Studies; Their Implications
for Research in the Social Sci-
ences" at 4 p.m. tomorrow in the
East Conference Room of the
Rackham Building.
Sponsored by Alpha Kappa Del-

ta, sociology honorary society, the
weekly series, it is hoped, will help
inform both faculty and students
of current research projects in the
social sciences at the University.
Another purpose of the weekly
series is to stimulate assistance of
such projects by additional re-
search of students and faculty
members in allied fields and over-
come interdiscipline barriers.
The symposium will continue

with: "Research in thebAdjust-
ment of Older People" by Prof.
Clark Tibbits, Oct. 27; "Research
on Conference Processes" by Prof.
Harold Guetzkow and Prof. Roger
Heyns, Nov. 10; "Selected Projects
of the Bureau of Studies in Com-
munity Adult Education" by Prof.
Howard Y. McClusky, Nov. 24, and
"Program for Study of Group
Morale" by Prof. Daniel Katz, Dec.
8.
