"academic" approach.

As for politics, Burr considers
himself a "liberal" of the Truman
shade. He favors the President's
civil rights program and wants to

"How can a party repudiate its
leader?" he asks.
On the other hand, Burr doesn't
think Slosson's constant defense
of the liberal element on the

according to Burr. "Didn't he

Bob Cobbins, chairman of the
Young Democrats, said that the

from the SAC outlining its pres-

James Terrell, Wallace Progres-

view of President Ruthven's
statement upon the announcement
of Prof. Slosson's candidacy, that
he hoped that more faculty men'
would take an interest in politics,
I feel that the Students for Slos-

than denied recognition."

"If the reason for the refusal is

WANT A CONVENTION SEAT-Balcony seats for the opening
session of the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia,

Europe Can Pull Itself Out
Of Reconstruction Crisis-n- tt

With support from the Western
Hemisphere, Europe can pull her
self out of a difficult economic
situation if she is willing to do her
part, Camille Gutt, representative
of the International Monetary
Fund, commented in two lectures
this week.
"There is no basis for despair,"
he commented, speaking on "Fi-
nancial Factors in European Re-
construction," in the fourth week
of the University summer lecture
series on economic reconstruction
in Europe.
Favorable Factors
He called attention to "favor-
able factors," which included U.S.
aid, favorable markets provided by
prosperity in the Western Hemi-
sphere, and the existence of es-
tablished means for international
cooperation through the Interna-
tional Monetary Fund, of which
he is managing director, and other
"Even with this breathing spell,
the task confronting Europe is
difficult since an almost revolu-
tionary pattern of international
trade is necessary to provide a
proper European balance of pay-
Mr. Gutt called for elimination
of current inflation and the "leg-
acy of the past" which he de-
scribed as the latent inflation gen-
erated in the post-war period
when consumers have been un-
able to purchase goods because of
Latent Inflation
He said this latent inflation
could be wiped out by some edict
to reduce* the amount of private
wealth, or by increasing the
amount of goods which consumers
are seeking.
On the international scene, Eu-
rope's problems stem from at-
tempts to make payment for im-
ports of goods needed for recon-
struction. To purchase these
goods, all the world needs control
of dollars, he said.
No Useful Purpose
"However, any move to have the
International Monetary Fund de-

clare the dollar a "scarce curren-
cy" would not achieve any useful
purpose because the present situa-
tion is not like the one which was
envisaged at the time the fund
was planned at Bretton Woods,"
Mr. Gutt said.
The reason for the shortage of
dollars is not curtailment of im-
ports into the United States, but
rather that the United States is
the only country with the capac-
ity to produce export goods which
are clearly needed abroad, accord-
ing to Mr. Gutt.
