UNITED NATIONS, N.Y. - President Eisenhower yesterday pro-
posed that all the atomic powers-Russia included-pool at least part
of their atomic reseources for peaceful purposes.
With a warning that the nuclear arms race threatens to wipe out
civilization, the President urged that nations with atomic know-how
contribute nuclear materials to an international agency to be set up
under U.N. sponsorship.
"MY. COUNTRY'S purpose is to help us move out of this dark

"Progressive Education'
Values Debated by Panel
Widely divergent views on the topic of 'progressive education'

Giving their opinions on "What do we think of 'progressive edu-

Prof. William Trow of the education school, Prof. Bennett Weaver bf
the engineering college and Dorothy Myers, '55.
