Banking on the premise that
students who haven't already been
hit by the trip-to-Europe lure

gious Association are jointly spon-

REALIZING that travel has be-
come more than the proverbial
"broadening experience," the Na-
tional Student Association and
other groups have provided the
bureau with pamphlets outlining
myriad national and international
Most plans are geared towards
sending the American student
abroad as an "unofficial am-
bassador" and giving him inter-
national understanding in re-
Individual pocketbooks come in
for a major share of consideration.
Cheapest of the travel plans
are summer work programs, usual-
ly restricted to a single country
and set up on an earn-your-way
basis except for boat fare.
ized, an Experiment in Interna-
tional Living prepares students for
foreign service or United Nations
jobs by lodging them in a home
abroad and thus providing a close
cultural and social orientation with
a foreign land.
The plan emphasizes "family
living in one country rather
than sight-seeing in 20" and has
handled 5,000 students in its 20-
For those who would rather do
"sight-seeing in 20," there are

"Our national income must
steadily grow if we are to prevent
increasing welfare costs from be-
coming a critical economic bur-
den," Prof. William Haber of the
economics department said yes-
Prof. Haber spoke before the
annual Alumni Conference of the
New York School of Social Work
at Columbia University.
Lecturing on "Social Welfare-
Economic and Political Realities,"
Prof. Haber pointed out that there
is little possibility of our welfare
expenses decreasing in future
"Quite to the contrary," he said,
"the trend is in the opposite dir-
ection, even under conditions of
He went on to explain that vet-
eran's benefits, related programs
and other welfare expenditures
have been increasing steadily for
more than 15 years, until by the
fiscal year of 1951 they exceeded
six per cent of the national in-
come. Adding the cost of public
education, he commented that
"over nine per cent of the income
was spent on social welfare bene-

English Economist Values Art, Religion

By MARK READER
Although economics, Shake-
speare and religion cover the most
diversified range of interests, Bar-
bara Ward Jackson, assistant edi-
tor of the London "Economist" has
had time to delve intensively into
all three subjects.
The famed Englishwoman who
left the University yesterday for
New York, after successfully in-
augurating the Mott Foundation
lecture series, has also, during her
38-year life, written four books
and traveled extensively through-
out the world.
BETWEEN speeches and teas
while on campus, Mrs. Jackson
found time during her exhaustive
schedule to briefly sketch to The
Daily an outline of her achieve-
ments to date.
The tall, charming English-
woman was born in York, Eng-
land, May 23, 1914 and began
to attend school at the age of
seven. Educated at the Convent
of Jesus and Mary at Felixtowe
until she was 15, Mrs. Jackson
received her early background
in Catholicism there.
After graduating from the Con-
vent, Mrs. Jackson studied both
in France and Germany. Her
courses at the Lycee Meliere and
the Sorbonne were, as she put it,
"general humanity courses" and
tained a position on the London
"Economist." Before the Second
World War broke out, she had
managed to get a minor post in
one of the government ministries.
However, economy measures
forced on the government as a
result of the war caused the six
youngest members of the min-
istry to be fired. Mrs. Jackson
was one of them.
Fortunately a position was open
on the f'Economist" and Mrs.
Jackson was able to step in. Since
that time she has worked herself
up to the position of assistant edi-
Mrs. Jackson told the Economics
Club while she was here. "I am
only a working economist,"
In 1945 Mrs. Jackson became
a member of the Old Vie and
the Sadler's Wells Theaters. Al-
though the pressure of work
forced her to give up her posif
tion in the Sadler's Wells The-
ater, Mrs. Jackson is presently
engaged in the attempt to bring
a more complete repertory

Mrs. Jackson "indicated before
she left campus that she would.
have to take some time to recup-
erate from her strenuous activi-
ties before she makes definite
plans for the future.
However, she said, "Perhaps a;
trip to Africa is next."

The second folk-sing night un-
der the sponsorship of the Arts

tomorrow in the theater at 209%
The idea for the folk sing night
originated amongst University
students and the opening perfor-
mance was marked by the singing
of ancient ballads and jazz guitar
Members of the Arts Theater
will be admitted to the informal
get-together, free of charge. An
admission feeof 25 cents will be
charged to non-members who are
interested in attending.

Mrs. Jackson said that in these
early years, most of her real edu-
cation was learned at home. She
noted that when she graduated
from college in 1937 she had a
knowledge of a "bit of everything"
but had been unable to master any
