Cousins Discusses 'Information Crisis'
Junior College Students
Hold Round Table At 'U'
By BETTY SCHOMER
"The security and freedom of
the American people depend on
their ability to know."
Speaking to the Michigan Asso-
ciation of Junior Colleges at Rack-
ham yesterday, Norman Cousins,
editor of the "Saturday Review"
discussed "The Information Crisis
in America" with particular refer-
ence to the East.
Stressing tht "we do not yet
know enough," Cousitis used the
recent Asia-African Conference
which he attended as an example.
"The only harm done to the Unit-
ed States at Bandung was the
harm we caused ourselves, by our-
Emphasizes U.S. Opposition
Emphasizing the opposition of
the U.S. to the conference, Cousins
said that "in spite of what Ameri-
ca thought, this conference was
not a sounding board for world
Communism." Criticizing lack of
adequate coverage of the event,
Cousins said that "the only thing
wa~ were looking for at Bandung
was a brawl because brawls make
He described the opening speech
of the conference in which "The
Midnight Ride of Paul Revere"
was read, commemorating the
180th anniversary of the famous
event. "No event was more mean-
ingful to their needs than the
ride of PaulRevere ... if we had
truly remembered what happened
180 years ago, it would have been
impossible for us to miscalculate
Bandung," Cousins said.
'"Our first frontier is in Asia and
Africa," said Cousins. Asia and
Africa represent the majority ...
if one more populous nation, such
as India or Pakistan, were to go
under or over then, for the first
time, Communism would speak for
a majority of people.
Need 'Ear of America'
'The aim of world Communism
is. to leave the United States all
dressed up with its atomic bombs
and no place to go,' he said. "What
is needed is not so much a Voice
of America as an Ear of America.
We need to sit back and listen once
in a while."
Cousins maintained that there

especially interested in the Stu-
dent Government Council. He

ior college level.

lege was elected president of the
organization for the next year.

NORMAN COUSINS... Sit back and listen

ganized seminar is to co-ordinate

East and the West.
Disorders Came From West
Infrequently we might recall
that the prime disorders of our
own time, Nazism and, Commun-
ism, came from the West, not tlU
East, Cousins said.
He suggested the possibility of
a lateral (selecting certain key
years in world history and the
position of countries important at
that time) rather than a vertical
(tracing one country from its be-
ginning up to the present) ap-
proach to history.
Responsible for bringing a group
of Hiroshima girls, disfigured by
the atomic bomb explosion, to the
United States for medical care,
recently Cousins described the dif-
ficulties that were involved.
Some feared that the girls would
become homesick, that they could
not adjust to American living and
would become political liabilities,
However, just the opposite has
been the result. The girls have
adopted the U.S. as their second
home and the venture has done
much in promoting good will for
the U.S. in Hiroshima.
In a question period after his
talk, Cousins commented on the
U.S. position in Communist Chi-
na. "It is dangerous to admit
Communist China to the UN at
the present time; it's a matter of,
waiting some time until it works
