By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON -The United States announced yesterday it
would send 25 more B26 fighter-bombers, together with ammunition
and other defense supplies, to Indochina to bolster French Union
forces now holding off a powerful Communist offensive.
The planes will be loaned temporarily to French Air Force units
to help maintain a round-the-clock aerial bombardment on Red
divisions threatening the vital stronghold of Dien Bien Phu in north-
west Indochina.

"What is the justification of the
e.-ghead quarterly?" asked Prof.
Philip Blair Rice, associate editor
of the Kenyon Review in a lecture
yesterday before the Academy of
Science, Arts and Letters titled
"The Intellectual Quarterly in a
Non-Intellectual Society."
"The quarterlies, or critical mag-
acines, have their central concern
with current literature. They
neither try to make money nor do
they," Prof. Rice said, adding that
these magazines have been called
by critics anemic, and sub-ter-
rainally, subversive.
,+, ,
"TlE SOCIETY Is non-Int ellec-
tual as it is not concerned with
those things of concern to the
quarterlies," he said.
On the subject of criticism,
Prof. Rice said that the hope for
the improvement of criticism lies
in the fact that it is self-correct-
ing, and will submit to tests of
reflection and examination, for
literary criticism must be "acute,
patient and constant."
Speaking on "Anglo-American
Understanding and Misunder-
standing" before the history and
political science sections earlier,
Prof. Arthur Bromage of the po-
litical science department noted
that much of the misunderstand-
ing goes no deeper than the ver-
bal level.
Prof. Broma le mentioned four
points which the English people
questioned him about most fre-
quently on his recent trip there.
1. The United States as a world
power ("We sometimes appear to
them to be trigger-happy");
2. McCarthy ("McCarthyism
means, in England, the worst in
American life").
