Policy Must
"Frankly, I'm quite disturbed
because I can't find out quite
what our foreign policy is' re
marked Davis.
In his opening argument
Davis attempted to define the
American foreign policy since
he believes that the foreign
policy ought to have as its pri
mary purpose the protection of
liberty for the people of the
United States.
The secondary aim of the for
eign policy should be to protect
the peace of the world, he said.
"Peace may always be pur
chased at some prices, but with
out personal freedom it means
nothing," he said.
David said in his closing re
marks that we must not over-ex
tend ourselves in the present situ
ation for we cannot back all of
our promises up.
Joining Davis In a discussion
of another loan to Britain,. J. E.
Lawrence, editor of The Lincoln
Star, said he thought Mr. Davis
was of the opinion: "My coun
try, may she always be right,
but my country, right or
He went on to say that Amer
ica has been giving loans not be'
cause of love of humanity but be

Great Britain. '
"But have the loans and the
Marshall Plan aid been good for
America?" he asked.
It was brought out that since
the turn of the century the great
nation of England has been
steadily declining in prestige until
by giving more and more loans we

Lawrence said, "We could not
