JOURNALIST REPORTS:

Indonesian Revolt Called Premature
* *~ * * * *
Indonesia'srevolt for indepen-
dece came too soon, according to
Beatric nBorst '40,a wh spent r .... . .~<
Betie'0 os, wosettwo months there last summern
4iring the crucial period before:
ire Hague conference.};
"Most of the 70,000,000 people
there are illiterate and must be
taught the meaning of democracy.
Only 300 to 5,000 of them are edu-
cated enough to handle affairs,";}........
she. said.
* *
"WHETHER OR NOT they can
weather the storm of Communism
which threatens to engulf the Far
East time will tell. Close coopera-
tion with the Dutch may prove
r salvation."
During her travels throughout
the Archipelago,ris Borst be-
caethe first American woman
journalist to interview Indone-
he w as still in exile on the "< .4}.;.:::>: ::_:><:<::::: :...... .............
island of Sangka. . .
"Soerkarno has a dominating < :::.::::: " -
personality. I believe his power .. ,
lies in his platform voice, she .<
declared. ... .s~ ~ .4

BUT the new United States of
Indonesia faces discordant ele-
ments within itself, according to
Miss Borst.
"Thousands of Communists
are in Java, eager for trouble,"
she said. "There is even a ques-
tion whether Tan Malakka,
their Russian Communist leader
who was reportedly shot, is
alive and in hiding."
Another belligerant faction is
the Darul Islam, a fanatic Moslem
group numbering in the hundred
thousands in Java, she pointed
out. "They are against both Dutch
and Republicans and want a Mos-
lem States."
THE JAPANESE left a "time
bomb" in Indonesia when they
trained hundreds of youth to
fight the whites, she said.
" 'Asia for the Asiatics' was
their propaganda cry. The TNI
Republican army, made up of

youth, many extremists (ter-
rorists), Soekarno himself finds
difficult to control," she said.
Miss Borst left for Java in
September, 1948, on a Dutch
freighter carrying dynamite and
inflammable acid. Two days out
from New York they hit a bad
Atlantic hurricane with a 110-
mile wind and 50-foot waves.
* * *
ONE OF THE high spots of the
trip came when she flew to Cook-
town from Cairns in Queensland,
Australia, with British novelist
Nevil Shute, in the monoplane he
ihad flown out from England.
Shortly afterwards she learned
monsoon winds had blown away
the town.
Another highspot was seeing

Mt. Ngaurahoe volcano erupt
some 20,000 feet in New Zea-
land.
While in Indonesia to gather
material, Miss Borst was invited
to attend the parties for the 15
American journalists and to fly
with them if she desired.
"I felt they would meet with a
plane disaster and turned down
the invitation to fly with them,"
she declared. "But I met them all,
and was more than shocked when
the plane crashed in Bombay."
Miss Borst, who won a Hop-
wood award in 1941 for her novel
"Nearer the Earth" claims she
still wants to write "another
novel," but hopes to combine
novel writing with non-fiction
travel pieces.

IFC Officer
Vote Slated
For Today
Elections for three Interfrater
nity Council senior offices will be
held at the IFC House Presidents'
meeting at 7:30 p.m. today at the
Union, IFC President "Jake" Ja-
cobson has announced.
Seven men have submitted peti-
tions for the posts of vice-presi-
dent, secretary and treasurer, left
vacant by the resignations of Dick
Morrison and Stan Crapo Mar. 1.
GUNNING for the vice-presi-
dent's post are Bill Duerr, '50;
Jim Walden, '50 and Jack Kruse
'50.
George Milroy, '51; John Pur-
vis, '52 and Dick Ferrara, '51
are running for the office of
IFC secretary. Treasurer's posi-
tion is being sought by Dick
Tinker, '51.
Formerly one position, the of-
fices of secretary and treasurer
were formally made separate by
an IFC house presidents' ruling
two weeks ago.
* * *
EACH FRATERNITY repre-
sented in IFC will cast one vote
tonight through itshouse presi-
dent, Jacobson pointed out.
The three men chosen will hold
offices until IFC's regular spring
semester election the second week
of May, he added.
Also on the agenda tonight are
further discussion of IFC's con-
stitutional revisions and a re-
port on "Greek Week," scheduled
for May.
Weir Claims
Wealth Made
By Advertising
"Soak-the-rich" crusades share
wealth, but advertising creates it,
Walter Weir told journalistn stu-
dents yesterday.
Taxes and subsidies redistribute
wealth, but advertising increases
it by stimulating demand and
production, the New York City
advertising agent said.
"Share- the -wealth schemes
bring us all down to the same
level, advertising brings us to
higher levels," the University Lec-
turer in Journalism added.
"Advertising is fraught with_
self-seeking and chicanery like
any field," he said, "but it is
the basis of material democracy."
Advertising writing is an open
and well-paid vocation because it
demands creative ability, Weir
concluded.
Weir has written extensively on
advertising and lectured in the
United States and Canada. He al-
so headed creative departments
of four major advertising agencies
and did war propaganda work for
the government.
