Shih Credits
Students with
Aiding China
Chinese exchange students have'
carried back modern political, econ-
omic, and social ideas obtained from
the west which will make China one
of the leading world powers, Shih-
Chia Chu intimated in his talk yes-
terday at the Rackham Amphithea-
"The United States' contribution to
China has never been surpassed by
any other country in the world, al-
though her contact with China has
been established in relatively recent
years," Shih declared.
American Colleges Credited
"American colleges and universities
have revolutionized the thinking of
China's younger generation. Stu-
dents who have studied here have re-
turned to China with new currents
of thought in religion, philosophy,
and education," he added.
'In turn, China has contributed
something of itself to the western
world in the form of literature and
art. Colleges, museums, and li-
braries have been instrumental in
bringing Chinese influences to the
foreground in the United States, he
Looks For Close Unity
"These steps," said the speaker,
"are in the right direction and should
be continued for an indefinite period
not only in war time, but also in
peace. Through constant interchange
of ideas, China and the United States
can come closer together until the
time is ripe for complete mutual un-
derstanding," Shih concluded.
Hillel Will Hold
Serv ices Today
Elmer Swack, housing manager at
the Federal Public Housing Authority
project at South Lyon, will deliver a
sermon, "A Challenge to Jewish
Youth," at religious services which
begin at 7:45 p. m. today at the Hillel
. Harvey Weisberg, A-S, and Melvin
Rackoff, '47E, will conduct the ser-
vices, which will be followed by a so-
cial h;iour.

Strict Regimentation Miiht Be
Result of Educational Trends

"Totalitarian control and regimen-
tation, where we all become as ac-
uiescent as Charlie McCarthy" will
be the result of the present trend, if
it is not checked, toward too much
individuation, specialization and lack
of sense of community, declared
Prof. Howard Y. McCluseky of the
School of Education.
"We know enough to direct that
process and that trend, so that a
totalitarian regime will not be neces-
sary," he said in a lecture yesterday
at the Fifteenth Annual Education
Conference in University high school.
Unity Needed
Through the schools, industry and
other groups, we can bring a more
social spirit, a spirit of oneness with
all other people, into the communi-
ties," said Prof. McClusky. "We've
got to give the people a larger and
larger sense of community, a sense
of working with others, cooperating
with others," he emphasized.
Laissez-faire CriticizedI
"People have tended to take al
laissez-faire attitude, which cannot
be substantiated. You can change
the habits of parents through their
children. In my experience a social
studies class has been able to get
out 90 to 100 per cent of the people
voting on election day. I have seen
tables showing tremendous increase
in production traced to a better sense
of fellowship and better sense of com-
munity on the job," concluded Prof.

from 1 P.M.
