In College Athletics Talks
Chancellor R. G. Gustavson is

Cil on Education.
The committee, studying col

Raymbnd F. Howes, ACE mem

Because of its "active partici
pation in the student exchange
movement," the University has
been cited for "outstanding con
tribution to the advancement of
world understanding."
According to Chancellor R. G.
Gustavson, the citation, a spe
cial certificate, wis awarded for
'bettering the foreign relations
of the United States through the
medium of the international ex
change of persons." The Insti
tute of International Education,
headed by Kenneth Holland, i
made the award presentation.
The University is a member of
the Institute's "educational asso

colleges and universities contrib-;
uting to the support of the 32-
year-old institute.
According to Holland, more
than 30 thousand foreign stu

universities. "In this time of

in international education."
The Institute of International

organization, administering ex

The present ROTC program
stems from the National Defense
Act of 1916 which set up the or
ganization. However, in IB 17 a
Student Army Training Corps
was established, which differed
slightly from ROTC. For a time
it replaced the ROTC program.
The SATC devoted more time to
drill and other military subjects.
During World War I the So

uncompleted, was used as a

end of the first semester of
1918 the Student Army Training
Corps was disbanded.
The first summer camp under
ROTC regulations was held at

includes Washington's recogni
tion of Russia's chief sourse of
weakness which is the agricul
tural instability of Russia and
many of her satellites.
Hindus compared the national
debt of Russia to that of the
United States. He said that in Rus
sia, national debt means nothing.
Hindus explained that when a
Russian buys a government bond,
"he doesn't look upon it as an
investment, but as merely some
thing he must do."
Hindus stated that "One bright
day, the internal debt of Russia
will be wiped out merely because
the Politburo will decide that it
doesn't want to pay."
Hindus explained that the
only thing Russia has to do
when she does not want to pay
the national debt is to send a
representative from the Polit
buro to some factory. This rep
resentative tells the factory
workers that "great prosperity
has been reached by the peoples
in the country."
He adds that the gov
ernment would be richer with
out the national debt and all
workers can be a means to
this end by turning in all their
government bonds. Hindus
stated that this form of verbal
persuasion occurred in many
places during World war II.
Hindus noted that even though
the Russian people abhor war,
the. would probably fight if they
were made to believe they were
"The Russian are so peace-lov
ing that they will never go to
war, he said. Throughout Russia's
history, whenever there was a
war, the people as a whole fought
if they believed that they were
on the defensive, not offensive."
He added that this same state
ment held true in the case of the
Finnish "attack" against Russia
and the "attack of the United
States against Korea. j
In discussing the Yugoslavian
situation, Hindus '-om pared Tito
to a Martin Luther who has es
tablished a church of his own.
This, be explained, was because
He added that Tito's break
away from Russia was not the
beginning of a sei ien of schisms
in the Communist movement.

Hindus stated that the Polit

Answering the question posed
by the subject of bis speech,
Hindus explained that, while the
man who might succeed Stalin
will undoubtedly continue his
plans and policies, "no man can
ever fill Stalin's shoes, for there
can be only one god."
Russians, he said, are taught'
that Stalin is the greatest and most
infallible man in the world; he is
the father of all the peoples of the
world, the father of Russia and
the father of all young Russian
While he might be called the
greatest tyrant and the bloodiest
beast in the world, Hindus also re
called that he is the world's great
est industrialist.
Accounting for Stalin's strength.
Hindus'cited four sources:
1. The advantage of a dic
tator in international diplomacy.
He has no opposition and can
change his mind overnight if he
2. Russia's industrial machine.
Hindus called the industrial
might of the nation Stalin's
greatest achievement and
3. The Russian youth. Provid
in games and sports, Stalin has
wone the respect and admiration
of his nation's young people.
4. The Russian army with its
militarized schools.
However. Hindus also cited four
of Russia's greatest weaknesses:
1. The record of one calamity
after another since 1901. Russia,
he said, has continually been in
war, famine, revolution, counter
revolution, civil war or purges
since that time.
2. The low standard of living.
Hindus pointed the shortage of
animal lats, shoes, dresses and
everyday conveniences taken for
granted m American life.
3. Stalin's fight with Tito. He
is afraid to attack little Yugo
slavia, Hindus said, because he
knows the western world will
answer with its atomic bombs on
Russian industries.
4. The Korean war, which
backfired and is now bleeding
Russia of its industrial output far
faster than it is the United States.
Instead of continuing his
ever-expanding- program of ag
gression, Hindus said, Stalin has
touched off the first peacetime
military-preparedness program
the United State has ever
known and has thai lessened
his chances in a sudden war.
