News of the international situation within the past
two days, particularly the position of the United States
has had a sobering effect upon the campus. Conversation be
tween classes, over a cup of coffee and in numerous bull
sessions have centered around the possibility of a third
world war. Some instructors have deviated from their
usual lectures to express their opinions or to eniignten tneir
pupils on various espects. That almost everyone is conscious
of the serious turn of events in the world is very evident.
At ViA hAP-innine- of the semester similar thouehts and
conversation were present.
United Nations torces m late weeKS came opumism. ine
hopes of being able to finish the school year and a quick
settlement of the Korean war stopped the flow of pessi
mism to a large degree. A more cheerful attitude began to
prevail, especially after numerous deferments were granted
The mood has reversed again during these past two
days. Once more students are asking themselves, "What
will the present situation mean to my education and my
future?" Some who have delved deeper in the subject are
wondering what it will mean to the United States and
eventually the world.
It is impossible to answer these questions "only time
wil tell" as they say in the books. Theories to the final out
come will abound but nothing can be proved yet. However,
there is one thing1 that is certain if there is to be a war,
it will be our war and our burden. It is the students in
school now and other men and women of similar ages that
will be carrying the load, not only in the present conflicts,
but in the peace which everyone hopes will develop from
the chaotic situation. Our professional lives have not com
menced; some of us will have yet to finish our formal edu
cation. The trnsitory period from leaving home to starting
our own has not begun for most of us. No other group of
Americans will suffer more if the international situation
progresses from bad to worse.
However, complete pessimism is not warranted yet.
There is still the big "if" remaining which could change the
international picture. And because of this we must live the
present despite the forebodings of the future. Extreme
pessimism on our part will accomplish nothing. We can only
wait until "tomorrow" for today's decisions.
Asian Traveler Says Shooting
War With Russians Unlikely
"I doubt if there will be an
all-out shooting war with. Rus
sia in the near future."
Those are the words of John
Strohm, Woodstock, 111., author
and world traveler, as he ad
dressed the Farm and Home
Days audience at the University
Wednesday. Mr. Strohm recent
ly made a 4,000-mile swing be
hind the Iron Curtain. He said
he talked with people and visited
farm and factories.
"Iiv my judgment," said Mr.
Strohm, "Russia is not prepared
to fight a global, all-out atomic
war because she simply does not
have . the industry, food, com
munications and transportation
to do it. Russia has many raw
materials, but is almost primi
tive compared with 20th century
But, said the correspondent for
Country Gentleman, Russia has
made great strides recently with
German technicians. "Then, too,
we must recognize that Russia
has been gaining ground with
He;pointeJlout that the Chi
nese soldiers now fighting in
Korea are an example of Soviet
Mr, Strohm predicted a long
period of semi-mobilization for
this country "as we try to an
ticipate Russian moves and bol
ster our weak defenses all over
the world." Here are some of
the things Mr. Strohm said he
found in his travels in the Far
1. Pakistan is weak but pug
nacious, wants to go to war with
India over Kashmir.
2. India is half-starved. She
depends for internal stability on
the life threads of two old men
Nehru and Patel.
3. Indonesia must export to
live and yet her production has
been going down and down. "I
saw rubber trees cut down to
make charcoal the bushes up
rooted to grow food."
4. The Philippines are ripe for
5. The nationalists of Indo
China demand that the French
withdraw their soldiers. Yet if
those 150,000 French soldiers left
Indo-China today, a chain reac
tion would follow which might
sweep all of southwest Asia and
600,000,000 more people behind
the Bamboo Curtain.,
Mr. Strohm said we face a
gigantic job if we hope to stabi
lize south and southeast Asia.
The natives, he said, are sus
picious of the white man's im
