Truman Plan
Will Stress
Airiculture
WASHINGTON - (P)) - In the
beginning, much of President
Truman's "bold new program" of
teaching underdeveloped nations
American skills will be centered on
agriculture.
That's because any improve-
ment in living levels must be built
on well-fed peoples. Surveys show
that two thirds of the world's
population is undernourished.
* * *
IN CARRYING out a program
for improving farming skills
abroad, Mr. Truman has two ma-
jor agencies at his disposal. One is
the Food and Agriculture Organi-
zation (FAO) of the United Na-
,ions. The other is the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture.
There are indications that the
United States may not channel
Its activities through FAO, but
undertake them on its own...
In outlining his program in his
inaugural address, Mr. Truman
did mention United Nations or-
ganizations such as the FAO. He
did indicate that there would be
cooperation with them.
NEVERTHELESS, initial steps
in his program indicate the Unit-
ed States will do much of the work
on its own.
The department's program
started back in 1939 as part of
the "Good Neigbbor" policy
toward Central and South
"America. It now covers 15 West-
ern Hemisphere countries.
By next year the department
plans to extend it to such Eastern
Hemisphere countries as Afghan-
istan, Iran, the Philippines, Siam
nand Syria.

DAILY OFFICIAL BULLETIN

By JOHN DAVIES
Only the Union Opera chorus
rehearsal across the hall and the
assistance of coeds from the
League made life for, IFC Bpok
Exchange Manager Dick Morrison
tolerable these last few weeks.
Morrison admits a certain sat-
isfaction in the running of a ser-
vice which handled more than
6,000 books and $4,000.
* * *
AT TIMES the exchange was so
busy and took in so much money
that Morrison had to lean close
to his desk to prevent the money
from falling on the floor.
But at other times, in Morri-
Prof. Titiev
Will Speak t
AYC Meeting
In an attempt to acquaint all
students with the purposes and
programs of the American Vet-
erans' Committee, campus AVC
officials have planed a "Know
Your AVC" get-together at 7:30
p.m. tomorrow in the League.
Featured speaker at this initial
spring meeting is Prof. Mischa
Titiev of the anthropology depart-
ment, who will comment on the
emergence of nationalism in the
Far Eastern area.
Formerly associated with OSS
in China, Prof. Titiev will discuss
the significance of recent cap-
italist and Communist movements
in the Orient. He is expected to
include the New Delhi conference,
Indonesian developments and the
overall effects of a Communist-
dominated China.
After his address a short film,
"Asia Speaks," will be presented.

son's eyes, the exchange wasn't
busy enough.
A lack of customers he explain-
ed in this way. Freshmen don't
know about the exchange and
don't find out about it until they
become sophs, just in time to load
the exchange with freshmen
books.
These don't sell, the student be-
comes disgusted with the ex-
change. doesn't come back until
he's a senior and ready to move
out of town, making it hard to
send him his checks.
CERTAIN TEXTS seemed to
change every year, he said, caus-
ing the shelves to groan with obso-
lete editions.
"But," Morrison said, looking
happier, "the -fact that the
Union Opera is holding chorus
helhearsals across the hall with
an 'open door' policy increased
our efficiency 100 percent."
And the human element gave
Morrison's smooth -running ma-
chine a few jolts. Students expect
the exchange to sell everything
from their complete libraries to
two-bit pocket books, and sell any-
thing they can't find any place
else-like a Finnish dictionary, he
complained.
"SOMEBODY asked us for the
text to Arboretum 107," he said.
"We referred him to 'Amour', a
French text. One title that sold
like hoteakes was a symposium on
the Kinsey Report, which we put
in the psychology section."
Slide rules, drawing kits and
other similar objects found their
way to the exchange room, 3C of
the Union. One fellow, Morrison
reports, brought in a pen to sell,
explaining he'd flunked out of
school.

West Quad's Sunday afternoon
recitals proved to;be such a suc-
cess to the crowd, jamming the
main lounge that ,they are being
continued this semester.;
Programs are disltributed to all
residents before each recital to
tell what compositions will be
played and the musicians who will
take part.
STEVE SEARS won the title of
Tyler House's "bridger of distinc-
tion" Monday night in the last of
a series of bi-weekly bridge tour-
naments which began last Octo-
ber.
Sears, Art Perkins, Howard
Schwartz and George Poretta
will lead the newly-formed 12-
man Tyler House bridge team.
The team issues formal chal-
lenge to any dorm on campus-
men's or women's-to a dupli-
cate bridge tournament.
Any house interested in accept-
ing the challenge of Tyler may
contact Al Atwood at 214 Tyler.
