A plan for the proclamation of
a world federation directly
through the people and not
through the UN is snowballing
toward actuality with the calling
of a Peoples World Constituent
Assembly for 1950 in Geneva.
The movement began unassum-
ingly enough in England in Jan-
uary of 1946 when a group of
backbenchers from Parliament
led by Henry C. Usborne met to
consider the problems of the
peace. They refuted the two pre-
dominant trends of thought that
peace can be bought with dollars
or be enforced by power.
No Peace Without Law
IBeginning with the premise
that there can be no peace with-
out law, they reasoned that a
Direct World Federation Plan
Will BeDrafted by Assembly
Federalists officially endorsed the
Parliamentary groups in Great
Britain, France, Holland, Luxem-
berg, Italy and Belgium endorsed
world federation and stated their
readiness to back the movement.
Men like Earnest Bevin, Clement
Atlee, Paul Spaak, William Doug-
las, and Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr.,
climbed on the bandwagon.
England is already setting up
electoral districts to select dele-
gates to the convention. On this
side of the international scene, a
meeting was called for the fall at
Princeton to create a plan for
electing delegates in the United
As more and more political
leaders become convinced of the
need for World Federation the

The students agree in discus-
sion groups that the modern uni-
versity's stress on objectivity and
the scientific approach is produc-
ing social misfits. Efficiency in a
specialty is inadequate prepzra -

nal life, they concluded.
Bishop R. S. Emrich, of the
Protestant Episcopal Church,
charged that modern universities
are "intellectual cafeterias," with
no overall policy for balanced

Chem Profs Assume New
Functions as Kitten Keepers
By JO MISNER
Members of the chemistry de-
partment have viewed numerous
chemical and physical reactions
in the past without "losing their
But a recent biological phe-
nomena which took place between
the new and old chemistry build-
ings has the department all agog.
This disconcerting event was
the discovery at 9 a.m. yesterday
of a tiny kitten in the combus-
tion room between the two build-
ings. An unnamed professor spied
the kitten through a hole in the
wall made by construction work-
ers who are now knocking down
parts of the walls for entrances
between the buildings.
Origin a Mystery
The parentage of the foundling
was clothed in mystery. The only
means of entrance to the combus-
tion room was a six-inch lead
pipe. No other traces of cats or
kittens were found in the build-'
The kitten's eyes are still closed,
and various authorities estimate
its age as somewhere between 2
and 5 days.
The orphan kitten has been
adopted temporarily by doting
professors and is making its
home in the main office of the
The kitten, dubbed "Benzene"
(C-6 for short), is living in luxury
on a white fur mitten-bed. Her
meals are administered through a
medicine dropper by top-notch
Though the chemistry profes-
sors are doing everything in their
power to make "Benzene" com-
fortable, they expressed a deep
concern over the kitten's future.
As a matter of fact, they will be
quite happy to turn "Benzene"
over to any layman who promises
to give the kitten a "good home."

And so the plan for the people
themselves arising and proclaim-
ing a world federation was born.
It was proposed that a Peoples'
World Constitutent Assembly
meet in 1950 to draft the charter
of World Goveijnment.
Delegates to the convention
would be unofficially elected in as
many countries as possible on the
basis of one delegate per million
Two possible procedures for
ratificationswere seen.d Fist, it
would be submitted to the UN for
approval. If this failed, the dele-
gates would have the democratic
right to submit the draft directly
to their national legislatures for
Groups in the United States
were quick to follow up the pro-
posal. The Hutchins group in
Chicago drew up the first con-
crete draft of a World Govern-
ment. A World Republic group
was organized to back the plan.
