Britain Strives To Hold On To Her Empire
Sends Reinforcements To Canal Zone
Working like a multi-armed bricklayer, Great
Britain is feverishly attempting to mend the gaps
in the crumbling wall that is her once proud
empire. Before the Iranian dispute was solved the
harried British government was forced to redeploy
to meet attack from a new quarter; Suez.
In sharp contrast to the stand taken in Iran,
Britain declared that she would stay in the Suez that the presence 01 jsnusn troops on awpuaa
canal zone, and she sent troop reinforcements to territory was a threat to the peace, thus paying
The canal serves as a vital link between
British possessions in the middle and far east
and the homelands. Protecting this lifeline are
some 10,000 combat troops from the Suez gar
rison, Cyprus, Trieste, and England under the
command of Lt. Gen. Sir George Erskine who
won the D.S.O. At El Alamein. Against this
formidable array Egypt can send about 5,000
men. Fortunately for Britain the Egyptians are
under-equipped and their morale is low because
of their defeat by Israel two year are.
Another reason for British tenacity in Suez is
that she is freed from fear of intervention by Rus
sia, which threat "as constant in Iran.
British interest in the canal began about 1870
when 'Queen Victoria's prime minister, Benjamin
Disraeli, bought 44 per cent of the French-Egyptian
Suez Canal Company's stock from the financially
embarrassed Khadive of E0 nt. A short time later
Egypt became a British protectorate, an -arrange'
the way for her recent denunciation of the 19S6
treaty. At that time the security council sneivea
the dispute, but it may soon be forced to grapple
with the issue again in the light of recent de
velopments. If the treaty was io run for only five mora
years, why has the Egyptian t owmnent moved
no to oust the British? One factor Is that Prima
Minister Manas Pasha needed crusade to off
set Internal difficulties. Reports are growing of
corruption In the government and scandals In
vloving members of Nahas' household. Corrup
tion's nothing new In the cast, but the reactions
of an awakening populace are unique In the
history of this nation whose people live In dire
poverty, Ignorance, and disease. The Cairo mob
and the rural fellahin reflect the rising national
ism of the middle cast and Nahas adopted, as a
diversion, the popular policy of blaming all ills
n Anglo-American Imperialism.
One solution, rejected by Egypt, would be t
pretty wen assured-regardless, a great deal of the m campug flctivIties aturallV( orority sters

The rest of the familiar story takes place
When time comes to file for 'office. If the se

Who has pull has more chance of being put on
the slate. Recommendations generally play an
important part In advancing a worker. If you
have a fraternity, sorority or some other tie,
you can sleep easier at night and work less
during the day. If the procedure includes Inter
Views, you have a better chance of getting the
SougHt-for position if yon know someone is
At limes this is all well end good to a certain
extent if the worker is as well qualified as the
next person. In this case sorority or fraternity
affiliations shouldn't make any difference.
Greeks have a tendency to prevent too many
persons in one house from getting positions. We
realize that domination of an organization by one
and fraternity brothers and members of same
houses are prone to support their "favorite son or
daughter." The same situation exists in the na
tional democratic and republican conventions. But
on the national scale, when states realize their
candidates have little chance or other candidates
are better qualified states usually bypass their
"favorites." I'm not suggesting we hold caucuses
before every interview, but it might be a good
idea if persons with particularly close ties with
candidates confine comments to purely objective
It might be better if the affiliations or non
affiliations of applicants did not come into con
sideration In selections for various positions.
Although I do not advocate an organization con
trolled by one particular social group, 1 do think
that the most capable person should be chosen,
even if this means having three out of four
officers from the same house.
