Bevin Hopes
To See U S.,
Russia United
MORPETH, Eng., July 19-(/P)
-Foreign Secretary Ernest Bevin
said today he saw no danger of
another war "in this generation,"
and expressed the hope that Brit-
ain would find a way to "unite
the United States and Russia in
a common endeavor for the uplift
of humanity as a whole."
Speaking extemporaneously at
a coal miners' picnic in this north-
ern England town, Bevin took a
sober view of Britain's economic
difficutlies. He said the British
=policy would be to keep dollar-
borrowing to a minimum.
It is very hard to negotiate
With people to whom you are in
debt, 'he added. "When you can-
not pay up they feel a bit super -
The secretary spoke with signs
of deep conviction as he said
'there is no danger of another
war in this generation as far as
I can see.
"But in every act you perform,
you must keep in mind the child-
ren of 30 or 40 years from now.
"Not a day passes, not a mom-
ent passes in the job in which I
am now engaged without my be-
ing fully conscious that a wrong
decision, wrong judgment or pet-
ulant answer may now condemn
a generation."
Bevin referred several times to
the role of the United States in
the world of the future.
"I hope that the United States
will never withdraw from Europe
again," he said.

Several courses will be added to
the curriculum and new insti uc-
tors to the faculty in an effort
to keep pace with the rapid shifts
of emphasis in the world scene,
Prof. Brown said.
Vacancy Filled
Assuming the directorship of
the international relations pro-
gram will be Prof. Russell Hunt
Fifield, until recently a member
of the U.S. diplomatic service at
Hankow, China. He will fill the
position vacant since the death of
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden in 1945.
Prof. Fifield will teach political
science 67 and 68, a new two-
semester course in international
politics. He will also introduce
political science 153 and 154, a
year's program in the government
and politics of the Far East.
Formerly with the faculties of
the University of Missouri and
the National Wuhan University of
Wuchang, China, Prof. Fifield has
for the past two years been oc-
cupied with reporting on economic
conditions in central China and
Formosa, a diplomatic service
In the field of comparative gov-
ernment, poltical science 52, a
four-hour survey course will take
the place of what was formerly a
year's introductory program.
New Courses
New courses in the governments
of England, the Soviet Union, Lat-
in America and minor European
countries will be offered in the
coming academic year. Political
science 52 will be the prerequisite
for each of these.
A new text book, "Change and
Crisis in European Power," will
be used in the introductory course
in comparative government. It
consists of chapters on the var-
ious governments written by au-
thorities in the field. The book
was edited by Professors James
K. Pollock, Lionel H. Laing and
Samuel J. Eldersveld of the Uni-
versity's political science depart-

Some top educational leaders
agree this may be true. They ex-

on Higher Education to recom-

But Guy Irving Burch of the
Population Reference Bureau, a
private research organization,
says the most alarming threat to
intelligence is the pattern of hum-

He quotes U.S. Bureau of Cen-

Enrolhent Off
A momentary check in the
steady increase in veteran enroll-
ment at Michigan's schools and
colleges was announced yesterday
by the Veterans Administration.
The number of students enroll-
ed under the benefits of both
G.I. Bill and Public Law 16 fell
on July 1 to 76,450, a decrease of
almost 10,000 over that of June 1.
Many of the veterans who are
not at school this summer, how-
ever, are expected to resume their
studies in the fall, when the VA
anticipates a new all-time high
in veteran enrollment.
