Calendar Shortcomings
Can Be Remedied Now

T HE AWKWARDNESS of the present Univer-
sity Calendar is making itself felt more and
more among students, faculty and administra-
No one appears satisfied with the compromise
plan, in effect for the first time this year, which
has accomplished nothing more than to restore
a full 15 weeks of classes to the fall semester
and legalize the single-day study period prior
to final examinations.
Students, insisting on a summer vacation
allowing them to work until Labor Day and
spend two weeks at home afterwards, and a
Christmas vacation long enough and early
enough to work profitably, are least satisfied
and becoming more vociferous.
Members of the faculty and administration
are also concerned about the calendar, partic-
ularly the two-week "lame-duck" session of
classes following Christmas vacation.
BUT NO ONE except students, and particularly
not the present calendaring committee, is
anxious to sit down for two more years and
study the whole calendaring problem all over
The majority of members of the calendaring
committee would prefer to wait another year
or two or three to see how the calendar actually
works out in practice.
This means that a new calendar could not
be put into use for several more years. Even
if a rev calendar could be worked out this
spring, t T arliest it could be used would be the
academic year, 1958-59.
Time, therefore, is important in a considera-
tion of the calendar. Student Government
Council, if it adopts the resolution, calling for
immediate work on the calendar, worked out in
committee yesterday, will be stepping in the
right direction.

accomplishes removal of the "lame-duck"
period of classes disliked by faculty members
and students alike. It also could include "dead
period" at the end of Christmas vacation be-
fore final examinations.
Under this same plan, the second semester
would begin in the middle of January and end
late in May. Students from the University
would get first preference at summer jobs,
being able to start early and still work to Labor
Academically, this calendar would provide a
unified semester of study, broken only by the
half-week Thanksgiving holiday, and the spring
semester by a week-long spring vacation.
There would, however, be little working time
during the Christmas vacation. The compensa-
tion for this is, of course, the longer summer
and the two or three-week head start on
summer jobs.
THAT REPRESENTS the sacrifice students
would have to make. It actually is no sacri-
fice because the pre-Christmas week is not a
part of the present calendar.
The rewards are full, however. The unified
semester of study and the ample time to pre-
pare for final examinations presents a great
advance over the present calendar.
But the time for action is now-the present
calendar can be improved and it should be
improved without further delay and grumbling
over something that, with a little sacrifice,
can be made more than satisfactory for the

Sir Anthony . .
To the Editor:
J. M. Roberts need shed no tears
for Sir Anthony Eden, except
to regret that he has been forced
to retire because of failing health.
Sir Anthony is, and has always
been, a great man. It is certain
that the free nations will live to
regret that they did not support
his recent policy of intervention
in Middle East affairs.
Perhaps Mr. Roberts can tell us
the precise difference between
Eden's actual policy and the Presi-
dent's proposed policy of armed
intervention in the Middle East
if necessary.
If the President and his advisers
had adopted their present attitude
before the Anglo-French landings
and before the November election
the world would be in a much
happier position at the present

Critics and 'Truth' . ..
To the Editor:
know that many of our more
sophisticated critics go to the
movies with the attitude "Enter-
tain me! I dare you!" But I was
amazed when I read the review of
"Baby Doll." It seems to me that
a grave injustice has been done
both to the people who worked to
make this movie and to all those
who read the review to get some
idea of whether a movie is worth-
while seeing. I can only say I
hope that the review was written
out of sincere blindness and in-
sensitivity rather than pure soph-
What the play lacked was the
subtleties of other Tennessee Wil-
liams plays, but it suffered only
by comparison with other Kazan
movies. Other Hollywood movies
don't compare with it. The acting
was so warm and human, the
'rhole thing so real and honest.
The squalor of the setting, as
well as being an integral part of
the story, was the perfect back-
ground for the electric emotions
the near hysteria of the charac-
ters. It alone made the movie
worth seeing a second time.
The complex portrayal of three
human beings, and yet the almost
episodic changes of emotion; the
fear and danger, dispelled by a
sudden sunshine laugh, some of
the delightfully whimsical scenes
in a basically tragic movie, could
only have been done by a master
cast with master direction. The
audience easily undergoes the
most dramatic and sudden
changes of mood and emotion.
And the sexual aspect of the
movie (by no means the most im-
portant part), which was really
delicately handled, caused such a
furor only because American audi-
ences, Hollywood-daydream ted,
are not used to seeing honest pas-
sion portrayed on a movie screen,
and because movie critics seem to
be. a particularly "sensitive" lot. If
they are "shocked", it is certainly
not because the movie tries to
shock, but because they cannot
look at "truth" unless it wears
a newly-pressed grey flannel suit.

THERE WAS MORE than just a
burst of temper behind the
walkout of Congressman Wayne
Hays (D-Ohio) from the Dulles
secret hearings before the House
Foreign Affairs Committee.
Actually, the committee chair-
man, Thomas S. Gordon of Chi-
cago, is new at the job, isn't skill-
ed in holding important hearings.
Gordon, a Pole elected from Chi-
cago, has excellent intentions,
speaks English was an accent, has
seldom made a speech, sat silently
on the Foreign Affairs Committee
for years, and through seniority
finally became chairman. Affable,
but insecure, he's arbitrary in
order to give the appearance of
being strong.
Committee members do not get
full rein to cross-examine Dulles,
despite the fact that a commit-
ment to threaten war is at stake.
They are given five minutes each
in the morning, five minutes in
the afternoon. And the Secretary
of State, being an astute lawyer
and former senator, filibusters. He
answers the question at some
length, so that before he has fin-
ished one or two questions, the
chairman raps: "You time has
THE ASTUTE Mr. Dulles also
read a long statement which
blanketed the newspapers on the
first day. Thus newsmen wrote
little about his cross-examination.
On the second day, he requested
a closed-door session, and Chair-
man Gordon bowed. This was
when Hays of Ohio protested.
"There was n o t h i n g that
couldn't have been said in open
session," remarked Congressman
Jim Fulton of Pennsylvania, a
Republican, afterward.
Congressman Hays, who recent-
ly visited Hungary, had asked
Dulles earlier about Hungary's
plea for American aid. Hays com-
pared it to the request for aid

which might come from the Near
East under the Eisenhower doc-
trine. Here is tLe vigorous, un-
published exchange between the
Ohio Congressman and the Sec-
retary of State:
HAYS-"What is the difference
between Hungary's asking for as-
sistance, and our anxiety to go in
and help the Arabs? Is it be-
cause of the Arabs' deep religious
convictions? Or is it the oil out
there-or what?"

days later the man who asks for
assistance isn't there any more?"
Dulles-"We would expect the
request to be given in such char-
acter and form that it wouldn't

Hays-"Well, his plan might
not operate at all."
Dulles-(Wisecracking) -"Well

there would be no objection to
passing it."
Hays-"What's the'use of pass-

situation that doesn't exist?"

are talking about. Maybe it's just
as well I don't."

Helen Gahagan Douglas of Cal-

actress, came back to her old
haunts last week while her hus-
band, Melvyn Douglas, was play-

story of the Scopes monkey-gland
trial in Tennessee which ended the
career of William Jennings Bryan.

for the Senate by Richard Nixon
in a bitter campaign which first

he said. He explained that he had
to work with conservative Senators
such as Byrd of Virginia, Eastland

Morse, Neuberger of Oregon, and

considerable backstage persuasion.
They would never have done
so, Johnson said, if he tried to be
a flaming liberal.

WEST GERMAN Chancellor Konrad Ade-
nauer's proposal for an international ban on
thermonuclear weapons came to Washington
policy-makers as pretty much of a surprise.
Adenauer has long been regarded in Washing-
ton as somewhat of a liaison for United States
policy in Europe.
Motivation for the Chancellor's statement is
not clear. However, several current circum-
stances may well have entered into the move.
West German eletcions will be held this year.
In recent polls Adenauer and his Christian
Democratic Party have been losing ground,
while the opposing Social Democrats have been
gaining. Proposing some big international move
such as a 'hydrogen bomb ban will probably
put Adenauer back in favor with a number of
German voters.
No one wants to see a thermonuclear global
war, and a ban on the production of nuclear
weapons seems to many to be a simple answer
to the problem. Adlai Stevenson tried the same
tactics in the last United States election, al-
though it didn't work for him.
WEST GERMANY, along with the rest of
the free world, is losing its fear of Russia.
Countries are now attempting to deal with
Russia thorugh diplomatic circles. Adenauer
has advocated expansion of Soviet-German
trade to improve relations between his country
and the Moscow government.
Things look better for the future except for
one ominous dark cloud which to much of the
general population means "World War III is
coming": the ever-increasing stockpile of
thermonuclear weapons.
Once again, a simple ban 'on such weapons
appears to be a panacea. It would be at least
a partial panacea. Thermonuclear weapons
could well bring destruction to the entire
world. United States military leaders are now
revealing the latest development, an intercon-

warhead, capable of speeds up to 10,000 miles
per hour and a range of at least 5000 miles.
Desirable as a thermonuclear ban may be,
Adenauer failed to suggest any means of bring-
ing it about. It is a problem of wide- scope.
The establishment of an inviolable international
control is involved, and this would be a difficult
situation to manifest.
peatedly, the United States would be unwise
to take the lead in disarmament. The country
would be placed in an extremely vulnerable
position. Until a satisfactory plan can be
worked out for effectively establishing world-
wide disarmament of thermonuclear weapons,
the United States must continue in the inter-
national race for supremacy in potential de-
fense, however gruesome that race may appear.
Adenauer's proposal is actually little more
than a statement of the problem: control is
needed on thermonuclear weapons. He offered
no solution.

Test Your Television Intelligence Quotient

Daily Television Writer
Here is a first final exam for
1957. It is designed to test
your TV I.Q. (pronounced tee-
veeick). The only preparation is
that you have spent some of the
time during the past semester
watching television instead of
studying. Only one answer for
each question is correct. Circle the
answer you think is correct and
then check your answers with
those on the bottom of this page.
This is known as multiple choice.
If you score three or less cor-
rect you should get very good
grades this semester. If you score
between 10 and 12 correct you are
the average televiewer. If you
score between 15 and 18 correct
you probably have bloodshot eyes.
If you score all 20 correct you
can be a ghost-writer for this col-
umn. You can use this test to
amaze you friends at parties. Do
not cheat. Good Luck.
