COLLEGE ROUNDUP:
UWF Wages Word War
For Peace Organization
(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first in a series of College Roundipr
dealnk with nationwide amipus organizations.)
By CRAIG WILSON
"For World Government with limited powers adequate to pre-
vent war."
That slogan is the motivating force behind the United World
Federalists, Inc., a world-wide organization devoted to achieving a
world government.
S* *
MORE THAN 269 college and university chapters with a 10,000
student membership are at present waging the war of words and ar-
gument to win this final guarantee against world aggression.
They have ben called "starry-eyd," "visionary," and names
less respectful, but day by day they continue to provoke more and
more thought on the world's greatest single problem.
Former Secretary of State George C. Marshall has recently been
their No. 1 target. To questioning, he recently answered that he did
not believe UWF world government principles should be included in
U.S. policy because he was not certain the American public would
approve it, according to the Student Federalist.
* ~ * *
FEDERALISTS claim 7 to 1 support among candidates in the
Nov. 2 election, on the basis of questionnaires returned.
They also boast of world government resolutions passed in
16 state legislatures.
Public opinion pollsters, Gallup and Roper, both indicate that
Federalist ideas are favorable to the majority of Americans, UWF'ers
claim.
HERE IS A QUICK roundup of recent UWF doings around the
nation's campuses:
Yale: Regional Student Congress opened by Edgar Ansel Mowrer
speaking to more than 200 delegates, according to the Yale Daily
News.
University of Texas: President of state UWF given 30-minute
grilling on "Is World Federalism the Answer," according to the Daily
Texan. Program so well received it was later aired by local radio
station.
University of California: Federalists, Raymond Gram Swing, and
David Bradley, author of "No Place to Hide," concerning the Bikini
bomb, invade San Francisco for regional conference, the Daily Cali-
fornianreports.
University of Minnesota: Local UWF enthusiasts convince fellow-
students from two smaller schools in the state to "spread the light" on
their campuses, according to 'the Minnesota Daily.
* * * *
OTHER UWF ACTIVITIES include a steady barrage of lectures,
debates, panel discussions and radio shows.
Representatives button-hole every influential person they
meet and ask them their views on world government.
Here on campus, the UWF has set up a modest program for the
coming semester:
1. Become politically active and pick Congressional candidates
for 1950 with the aid of other UWF groups in the state.
2. PAt speakers before all campus groups. (More than a dozen
reached already.)
3. Put student spea1mers before all political science classes and try
to get a University course on world government.
4. Approach Ann Arbor mayor, William E. Brown, Jr., on de-
claring "World Government Week," early in March to coincide witha
week-long local program on world government.
5. Set up other chapters around the State. (Score so far: seven in
Michigan and two in Ohio.)
6. Spe t spare moments getting all campus organizations to pass
world government resolutions.
7. Hold round-table discussions every two weeks.
8. For relaxation, UWF'ers will pass pamphlets on their work to
unsuspecting students.

PROPAGANDA ANALYST SAYS:
Truman Appealed to Needs of People

t.

"Truman was elected because
he appealed to the American peo-
ple's innate need for food and
jobs," according to Clyde R.
Miller, former professor of edu-
cation at Columbia and founder-
director of the Institute for Prop-
aganda Analysis.

In the recent elections, many
farmers and workers and their
children remembered the lean
years from 1929 until the New
Deal. Thinking of this, and be-
cause of their need for food and

jobs the people voted for the party
which promised to continue bring-
ing them these things.
Truman's "Fair Deal" promised
these things, and consequently,
according to Miller, he was elect-
ed.

Following a brief two day
breathing spell while the speech
department's one-act plays were
being staged, the cast and crew of
the forthcoming "Dr. Faustus"
production have plunged into
final dress rehearsals.
THE STORY of a brilliant
young scholar, who sells his soul
to the devil in exchange for uni-
versal knowledge, "Dr. Faustus" is
onsidered one of the world's two
greatest morality plays, according
to Hugh Norton who is directing
the play.
Terming "Dr. Faustus" the
most fascinating play I've di-
rected," Norton pointed to the
necessity of arranging scenes to
fit modern audiences.
Although Norton stressed the
fact that first emphasis will be
on the poetry of the play, many
unusual and spectacular produc-
tion techniques will be employed.
Among these will be a scrim device
which will show the forces of good
and evil fighting in the air over
the stage. Special lighting effects
will be used so that the evil Me-
phistopheles can disappear when
he gets angry.

" V o nn .11 +-

"THE PLAY IS NOT all trag-
edy," said Norton. "The clowns
are as broad in treir way as Abbot
and Costello are today."
Featured in the cast are John
Sargent, '49, as Faustus, and
Richard Charlton, 49, as Me-
phistopheles. Also in the cast
are James Lynch, '49Grad., Gail
Shoup, '49, Jack Jensen, '49, Lu-
cille Waldorf, '49, Lloyd Ban
Volten burgh, '49.
Others are William Bromfield,
'49, Frank Bouwsma, '49, NafeI
Katter, '49, George Fox, '49, and
Laird Brooks, '49.
