NIGHT EDITOR: NAOMI STERN
Paradox
JN THE WORDS of Samuel Grafton, I'#
going to "peddle a little paradox" today.
A few days back, The Daily reported an
address given at the University by Benjamin
Gerig, deputy representative on the UN
Trusteeship Council. It was an address that
treated of the new spirit of colonialism that
is abroad in the world today. No more, Gerig
said, are administering states ,concerned
with exploitation of the non-self-governing
territories in their care. "Instead, their par-
amount aim is the well-being of the inhab-
itants of these territories."
To prove his point, Gerig enumerated
the stipulations in the United Nations
Charter, in which the administering states
pledge themselves to the promotion of the
political, social, economic and educational
with a view toward bringing about self-
government in the territories.
Another issue of The Daily during this
past week reported the launching of a cam-
paign on the part of a University student
to inscribe the story of oppression in Mad-
agascar onto the conscience of the world.
Miss Bargyl Rateaver, a native of Mada-
gascar, finds it difficult to reconcile the
French government's pious assertion that
the island is now free with a recent uprising
for freedom, in which her father, a mission-
ary, along with other natives, was interned
in the squalor of an ancient prison at Fort
Dauphin.
"There has, in the 52 years. of French
occupation of the island, been little letup
in the imperialistic exploitation of Mad-
agascar's people," she said. It was a com-
ment based on a life-long and first-hand
awareness of the situation.
It is apparent that there are at least
some persons who do not share Mr. Gerig's
views as regards the application of the
new spirit of colonialism of which he
speaks. Some of these persons are the
inhabitants of the colonies-the inhabi-
tants whose interests are now "para-
mount," whose self-government is being
looked to as the aim in view of the admin-
istering states, according to Gerig.
One doesn't have to refer to The Daily's
accomts for stories of colonial exploitations
covered up with pious platitudes. Take Pal-
estine, for one, and Indonesia for another.
Their stories are all in the papers. They all
tell the same tale-one of a native popula-
tion fed up with oppression and no longer
able to rely on promises of freedom. It is a
story that doesn't seem to jibe with the

assertions of Mr. Gerig.
It is apparent that the principles of trus-
teeship as enumerated in the UN Charter
and enunciated by Gerig remain, for the
present, only principles with little in the
way of reality to back them up.

CZECHOSLOVAKS find little to laugh at
these days. But last week they smiled
grimly at a story currently making the
rounds of Prague's beer cellars and coffee-
houses. A. prominent politician, one of
the few leftovers from the old guard of
President Masaryk, was being questioned by
a worried friend: "Sometimes it looks as if
a war between Russia and the U.S. were
just around the corner, doesn't it?" It cer-
tainly does, sometimes." "And with whom,
do you think, Czechoslovakia should ally
herself, if and when?" "With Russia, of

By JOSEPH and STEWART ALSOP
A VITALLY SIGNIFICANT new problem
is beginning to be earnestly debated
among the makers of American foreign pol-
icy. It can be expressed in a simple question:
What will be the result of repeated conflicts
NSO and Peace
COUNTLESS organizations in the coun-
try are currently at work to promote
world peace, but our progress in that direc-
tion is imperceptible, if, in fact, actual. In
the light of this discouraging outlook, it is
entirely possible that the embryonic Na-
tional Student Organization is the one group
which can actually be effective in carrying
us toward that end which is the goal of
nearly all of civilized society-world peace.
Such an extravagant claim for an infant
organization, which has thus far been largely
ignored by both the public and the press,
is not as idealistic as the hasty critic might
suppose. The strongest advocates of world
government generally admit that legislation
alone will not bring world peace; that na-
tionalism will be reduced, not by a vote of
the Security Council or even by interna-
tionalism in the minds and hearts of the
people. Through developing friendship be-
tween American and foreign students, the
NSO can accomplish this over a long period.
The threat of annihilation by the atom
bomb before that transition to an inter-
national thinking is achieved now faces
us. However, the world's leaders are so
far away from finding a short cut for
preventing that destruction that we can
only educate and hope.
Because of its unique position as the
organization of all American students, the
NSO, more than any other body, can effec-
tively develop the internationalism upon
which our prospects for world peace depend.
America's college youth of today will be
America's leaders of tomorrow. Because of
America's position as the world's strongest
power, what our students are learning and
experiencing now will sway the destiny of
the world in the near future.
Michigan delegates joined with represen-
tatives from 300 other schools last December
to form an organization through which
students could work to solve their common
problems. "Fostering cultural activities, pro-
moting two-way student exchange, and fa-
cilitating student travel, both within this
country and without," were the general
terms in which the new organization spoke
about its part in promoting world peace.
As so many phrases on paper they have
little meaning. Transformed, however, into
terms of chartering ships to enable Amer-
ican students to travel abroad at reason-
able rates, increasing the number of stu-
dents studying abroad, and including stu-
dent participation in the American UN-
ESCO delegation, the NSO's potentialities
take on color.
The University will have 12 representa-
tives at the NSO's constitutional convention
to be held at the University of Wisconsin
the end of this month. On their shoulders
rests the responsibility for establishing the
organization that can make these objectives'
a reality.
This summer the State Department used
two Maritime Commission ships to carry
students to Europe for study. Next summer
at least a dozen should be carrying students
abroad, those who prefer just to tour as
well as those who desire to study formally.
That is but one step. Smith College
and the University of Delaware have inau-
gurated a plan which enables students to
spend their junior years abroad in coun-
tries such as France, Italy, or Switzerland.
The Fulbright Bill offers government
scholarships for our students studying
abroad. These will probably be restricted
mainly to graduate students. (The pro-
gram needs expanding to include a volume
of potential student leaders, not simply
specialists in a specific field.)
Representation on UNESCO would give

students an opportunity to present their
ideas to that body as well as to learn about
its program and activities first hand.
The NSO's contribution to world peace
will not be spectacular. But by making it
possible for the students of today to visit,
to know, and to understand other students
throughout the world, the NSO can lay
a sound foundation for cooperation among
the nations tomorrow. It can accomplish
a major task in broadening the horizons of
the American leaders who will be promot-
ing that cooperation.
Of all the prospects for world peace in
sight today, the international aspect of the
NSO's program can easily be voted the "most
likely to succeed."
-Tom Walsh.
MEETING on the anniversary of Hiro-
shima's destruction and, as the Chinese
delegate pointed out, in the "grim shadow"
of that portentous event, the United Nations
Atonic Energy Commission has underscored
the failure of statesmanship to meet the
threat of atomic warfare. Representatives of
five nations-the United States, Canada,
Belgium, China and Australia-discussed the
Russian plan for atomic control in terms
which made it plain that while Russia main-
tains her position, the commission has
reached a dead end in its search for a solu-
tion of the atomic nroblem. Mr. Osborn. the

of national interest between the Soviet Un-
ion and its satellite states?
This may sound pretty academic. Yet the
problem has been brought to the fore by
completely concrete and frequently highly
dramatic reports from behind the iron cur-
tain. The reports concern the events leading
up to Soviet puppets' unanimous refusal
to participate in the Marshall plan for
European reconstruction. The public hu-
miliation of Czechoslovakia, which is now
called at Prague "the Munich in reverse,"
is known to the whole world. But now that
the returns are in from all over eastern
Europe, they disclose that the pattern was
approximately the same everywhere.
In Budapest, for example, the Commu-
nist-dominated Hungarian government
was as anxious to become eligible for the
benefits of the Marshall plan as was
the Communist-led government at Prague.
It was never publicly announced, yet the
Hungarian cabinet is now known to have
actually appointed a delegation to attend
the Paris conference on the Marshall plan.
The chief delegate was to have been the
Minister of Communications, M. Gero,
himself a Communist, and even the lesser
members of his staff had been selected.
Then General Sviridov, Soviet commander
in Hungary, requested an interview with
Hungary's new puppet premier, Dinnyes.
In talking to Dinnyes, Sviridov minced no
words. .According to reliable reports, he
pointed out that the Soviets would strip
Hungary bare through their control of Ger-
man and Italian assets; that there were still
unnumbered Hungarian prisoners of war
in Russia; and finally that a Soviet refusal
to ratify the Hungarian peace treaty would
have disagreeable consequences-such as the
permanent retention of the Soviet garrison
in Hungary.
Dinnyes listened to this rather forceful
sort of 'reason. The Hungarian refusal to go
to Paris was promptly announced. Hungarian
leaders are now frankly congratulating
themselves, in conversations with foreigners,
on their good fortune in avoiding the public
humiliation of the Czechs.
In Finland no "less than in Hungary,
members of the Cabinet frankly wished to
send a deputation to Paris. Foreign Min-
ister Enkell is even known to have branded
rumors that Finns would refuse the Paris
invitation as mere Communist tactics of
confusion. But Enkell, together with the
rest of the Finnish people, learned that
Finland had indeed refused as rumored-
from the Moscow radio.
In Poland, members of the government
were obviously distressed but made no plaint.
Some Polish Socialists, however, dared to
demand the sending of a Polish deputation
to Paris. No deputation went, and recently
reports have come from Warsaw that addi-
tional arrests of Socialists are now occur-
ring, on the ground that they lacl."the
will to cooperate" with the Communists.
The process of crushing out all possible
opposition is also proceeding apace in Ro-
mania. The arrests of Dr. Juliu Maniu and
other leaders of the Peasant party occurred
some time ago. Now the party's remaining
deputies have been expelled from the parlia-
ment, and just to round the thing off, a new
party leadership has been officially ap-
pointed. The leaders are a certain Popovici,
a cooperative but complete deaf nonentity,
and Professor Zanne, who has the valuable
qualification of being a protege of Andrei
Vishinsky.w
The important fact about these pre-
nomena is that they are bound to repeat
themselves. It is not only that the Soviet
Union wishes its satellites to have no
contact with the West. There is a vital
additional factor. The Russians also want
their satellites to provide them with raw
materials and manufactured goods. And
the satellites in turn must depend on the
Soviet Union for other goods and raw
materials which they are now prevented
from securing from western Europe or the
United States. New conflicts must thus
arise. And the bullying tactics used to
secure obedience to the Kremlin's edict
against the Marshall plan, will have to be
used again whenever there is another con-

flict.
In the cases of Finland and Czecho-
slovakia, this presents a special problem.
These nations are not yet completely pup-
petized. If their governments are,constantly
forced to subordinate the national interest
to Soviet interest, the peoples will turn
against the governments. Then the Soviets
will have to choose between relaxing their
present control, or resorting to puppetiza-
tion, by force. But even within the confines
of the countries already puppetized, the
same process will also work.
Men like Dinnyes and Gero in Hungary,
for example, by presenting Moscow for a
better deal for their people, will eventually
incur the Kremlin's suspicions. More and
more abject puppets will be demanded and
installed. The present system of delegat-
ing control of the satellites to governments
like that in Hungary may thus gradually
begin to break down. Yet the system can
only be replaced by extension of direct
Soviet responsibility. The question being
asked in Washington is whether the Soviet
system can support these added strains upon
its administrative and other resources.

ARNOLD J. TOYNBEE, in "A
Study of History" says:
The creative minority, out of
which the creative individuals had
emerged in the growth stage, has
ceased to be creative, and has stink
into being merely 'dominant' out
of the secession of the proletariat,
which is the essential feature of
disintegration, has itself been
achieved under the leadership of
creative personalities for whose
activity there is now no scope ex-
cept in the organization of oppo-
sition to the incubus of the un-
creative 'powers that be.' "
Regardless of Toynbee's un-
due mysticism in those final
chapters, the struggle today is
between those who, by dollars,
would get oil or trade, and those
who by sympathy would get the
loyalties of people.
Years ago the great war strate-
gists of Britain got their oil and
trade around the Mediterranean
but came out finally with the dis-
trust alike of Mohammedans
throughout Egypt, Arabia and
Syria; of the Christians in Greece
and the Balkans; and of the Jews
scattered thinly but vocally around
the world. Shall we get the oil
from the Persian Gulf, a thousand
miles to ships at Joppa or Haifa,
but failing to understand human
need, spill the loyalty of millions
into the lap of Russia? A low
standard economy with a message
of protest-just because it can
understand minimums-may be-
come the saviour while a high
standard economy, replete "with
double entry systems which relate
to maximums, fails to understand
bewildered citizens.
Toynbee's insistence that the,
only place a creative mind can
function is in revolt was attested
five years ago by the Catholic
French philosopher, Jacques
Maritan. In a brilliant book,
"Christianity and Democracy,"
he pointed out that in recent
decades Christianity seems im-
potent, unable to take advan-
tage of its opportunities, weak
in the critical periods and indif-
ferent to the major social ob-
jectives of its Founder.
He reminded us that while it
was the Christian drive which
brought the American revolution,
it was the revolting agnostics who
introduced liberty and fraternity
into France and the protesting
atheists who developed a people's
economy for the Russians. His
lamentationis over the inability of
the followers of Jesus persistently
to merge the two commandments:
1. Thou shalt love God and 2. Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thy-
self, in social practice.
General George Marshall at
Harvard, plumbing the spirit of
defeated Europe with a few sen-
tences on self help, set off the
best industry since UNRRA. If the
United Nations organization can
salvage concerted action for Euro-
peans from us as effectively as
they salvaged an armistice for In-
donesia from the Dutch, we may;
soon see constructive peace intro-
duced.
There is an untabulatable
something beneath every move
men make or fail to make today,
which, over much, must deter-
mine consequences. In such an
era, when complexity obscures
the path, it is safest for every
citizen to deliberately align him-
self with goodness.

"The suffering God is no vast
cosmic force,
That by some blind, unthink-
ing, loveless power
Keeps stars and atoms swing- '
ing in their course,
And reckons nought of men
in this grim hour.
Nor is the suffering God a
fair ideal
Engendered in the questioning
hearts of men,
A figment of the mind to help
me steel
My soul to rude realities I ken.
God suffers with a love that
cleanses dross;
A God like that, I see upon a
cross-"
Georgia Harkness; "Holy Flame."
-Edward W. Blakeman.
Ideologically as well as geo-
graphically, England is set be-
tween the United States and the
Soviet Union. There are dangers
in this position, but there are also
great advantages, and although
they know that they must do a
good deal of rather drab "holding-
on," the English people are not
without a strong sense of optim-
ism about their own future.

Lectures
Professor Joshua Whatmough
of Harvard University will lecture
on "Man and His Language" at
the eighth luncheon conference
of the Linguistic Institute at 1:00
Tuesday August twelfth in room
308 Michigan Union. The lec-
ture will be preceded by a lunch-
eon at 12:10 in the Anderson
Room. Both luncheon and lec-
ture will be open to members of
the Linguistic Institute and the
Linguistic Society. Professor
Whatmough is Professor of Com-
parative Philology at Harvard
University, and is well known for
his many contributions to Celtic
and Indo-European philology and
to general linguistics.
Professor Joshua Whatniough
will deliver the second of two lec-
tures to the Linguistic Institute
at 7:30 Wednesday, August 13 in
the Amphitheatre of the Rackham
Building. His subject will be "De-
scriptive Linguistics, Historical
Linguistics, and Area Linguistics,
with Special Reference to the Dia-
lects of Ancient Gaul." The lec-
ture will be open to the Public.
Professor Whatmough's lecture
will concern itself with the impli-
cations of some of the newer
methods in the investigation of
language.
The concluding lecture of the
series offered by the Linguistic
Institute will be offered by Pro-
fessor Hans Kurath of the Uni-
versity of Michigan. The address
will be given Thurs., Aug. 14 at
7:30 in the Amphitheatre of the
