Rapidly rising toward the 100
per cent mark, the red fluid in a
five-foot thermometer in South
Quad's Gomberg House lounge is
watched daily by house residents.
Headed by the caption "How hot
Is Gomberg?", the thermometer
is part of plans to raise at least
$1500 for the institution of a me-
morial tribute in honor of the late
Jack Kelsey, '5BAd.
A former president of South
Quad and administrative vice-
president of Inter House Council,
Kelsey graduated last January and
started service in the Army. He

Dobriansky to Speak,
Of U.S. Myths on Russia

United States policy of contain-
ment is allowing time for Moscow
to consolidate and form its spring-
board for world conquest, said Pro-
fessor Lev. E. Dobriansky of the
Georgetown University economics
Prof. Dobriansky is presently
visiting the University and will lec-
ture on "Several Outstanding
American Myths on Russia."
He cited liberation as the only
policy that can obstruct consolida-
tion for war, sustain the sources
of nationalism and patriotic re-
sistance throughout the Soviet
Union, and enhance the insecurity
of Moscow within its own realm.
Containment Policy
"To follow the present policy of
containment means to lose the
strength and power of our natural
allies behind the Iron Curtain and
to dangerously expose ourselves
to the prospect of defeat in the
event of a showdown, no matter
how closely bound we may be to
our allies in the free world," said
Prof. Dobriansky.
"While I agree that liberation
would create a hardship on the
people behind the Iron Curtain
countries, I believe, after listening
to their testimony, that they would
be willing to sacrifice anything in
order to have an opportunity to
-fight for their freedom."
He declared that the Commun-.
ists are perpetuating a neatly
staged facade of peaceful coex-
istence upon the free world while
they are busily engaged in consoli-
dating their empire.
Examples of Coexistence

to Moscow and taken on tours;

ment; track meets; preparation for

fund of constant principal.
"Because of the way in which
Jack was looked up to by all the
men in our house," Stern said, "we
don't think our $1500 goal is out
of reach."
Thermometer Gives Pledges
The thermometer, which desig-
nates pledges to the fund by pres-
ent house members, shows approxi-
mately 80 per cent of the $500
in-house goal attained. With more
than 53 per cent of the house still
to be pledged, the huge glass tube

of the really good British art the

Six 'Outstanding' Works

Explaining that a Gomberg
"alumnus" is any student who has
at one time been a member of the

sent Friday to the more than 400
"alumni" urging their support of
the memorial.
Donations Have Started
"Donations have already started
coming In as a result of these let-
ters," he said. "Besides, we re-
ceived around $300 before the
memorial award was even an-
nounced," he added optimistically.
"Though we have wanted an
award like this since the house
was started in 1951," Stern said,
"we also believe that this is an
