Students Brave Hazards in
Temporary Class Building

Students attending classes in
the temporarystructure located
behind the health service buildinr
will have to compete with work-
men rushing the unit to comple-
tion for at least two more weeks.
Study Hazards Abound

a Daily reporter encountered some

of the study detriments with
which stuaents will have to con-
nd in the meantime. After en-
ring the building over a tempo-
rary wooden ramp thrown across
a ten foot gully, your reporter
skirted several wooden carpen-
ter's benches and commenced a
tour of the building.
Workmen were scattered)
throughout the structure, busily
hammering and sawing on final
touches to the building. On the
second floor, painters were finish-
ing uncovered spots in stair wells,
while electricians and carpenters
swarmed through classrooms.
Persistent Professors
Meanwhile, classes went on be-
hind closed doors, with instructors
apparently little bothered by the
din. The new temporary class
rooms feature comfortable the-
atre-type seats equipped with
writing arms. Up-to-date lighting
arrangements were being installed
in the rooms which will be heated
from the central University heat-
ing plant.t
Currently the nearly completed
building is being used to teachI
courses which have overtaxed reg-
ular departmental facilities.

Solution in UN Seen Unlikely
Without Major PolicyChange

AP Foreign News Tnalyst id l i


Trygve Lie, Secretary General
of the United Nations, speak;,
with the voice of people every-
where when he calls on the great
powers to give the United Nations
a chance, but his hypothesis that
fear alone is at the root of the
trouble will bear scrutiny.
Big power suspicions, he says,
lead to fear and hate; it's the
spirit in which issues are ap-
proached. Not the machinery of
the U. N., which is at fault.
Sacrifice Necessary
But it is the action and policy
which produce fear that is really
at fault. The first reaction might
be to ask Stalin and Truman to
get together and see what can
be done. That may yet prove to
be the best possible try. But every-
thing would still depend on some-
one's willingness to sacrifice ma-
jor national policies.
The United States does not be-
lieve it is right for Russia to
coerce her neighbors either to de-
fend herself against possible at-
tack or to spread her ideology.
Russian Claims
Russia claims the western pow-
ers are mobilizing against her mil-
itarily, economically and political-
ly: that Communism and capital-
ism cannot live side by side in
peace; that she must make her-
self strong against any coalition;
and that the good which her sys-
tem will eventually produce jus-
tifies any method of imposition.
Fundamental Differences
There are issues involved in this
conflict that are being compro-
mised by the forces of time. West-
ern capitalism has for some years
been compromising with socialist
economic theory, and the Russian
monopolistic state has been find-

vu uai enterprise.
But there are fundamental dif-
ferences between what we call
democracy and what the Russians
call Communism. There is, for
instance, the issue of whether the
state shall derive its powers from
the people, or whether it shall
itself be the sole source of hu-
man rights. Such issues involve
an almost religious fervor, and
are not negotiable. They must
either be withdrawn from inter-
national affairs or one side must
admit it is wrong.
The small hope of that was em-
phasized after Lie's speech by
Andrei Vishinsky's reiteration of
Russian intransigence on prac-
tically every issue of the day.

II Welcomes



Students Rush
For the first time in the his-
tory of the Oriental Languages
department it has become neces-
sary to add an additional section
to the beginning course in Chi-
nese, Prof. W. H. Worrell, chair-
man of the department, said yes-
The addition was brought about
by the large number of students
who enrolled in beginning Chi-
nese. The enrollment was almost
three times as great as was ex-
pected, Prof. Worrell said.
To meet the increased interest
in the Chinese language, the lit-
erary college has added two new
members to its faculty, and has
expanded its offerings so that
the Chinese language may be
studied at six different levels,
Prof. Worrell said.
One of the new members is Dr.
Yao Shen, who received her doc-
tor's degree from the University
and who is also serving as a re-
search associate in the English
Language Institute.
The other is Bayard Lyon, who
has spent twelve years in China
and who has recently been with
the Institute of Chinese Language
and Literature at YaleUniver-
In beginning Chinese the stu-
dent is first taught to speak the
language, and after he has ac-
quired a speaking knowledge of it,
he then begins studying writing
and grammar. This method, al-
though it is relatively new, has
been successful in previous ex-
periments, Prof. Worrell said.
