"Agar thus reflected the theory of Arnold Toynbee that the communist threat may force westerners to define their civil ization and reverse the so-called downward trend of their cul ture. A Pulitzer Prize winner and former foreign service official. Agar stressed this need for an understanding of "our civiliza tion" in terms as definite as the doctrine of communism. "If we can bring the world together from the Iron Curtain to San Francisco," Agar said, "we can have a better society and one that begins to make sense." The North Atlantic Treaty or ganization is a step in this di rection, he said. Its speed of developemnt, he added, will de pend upon the pressure Russia exerts on western Europe and other American allies. Agar sees an eventual semi-political arrangement among North At lantic nations, by which deci sions can be made rapidly and effectively. He pointed to the joint chiefs of staff during World War II as a similar ar rangement The need for cooperation be tween western European nations and the United States, Agar . said, is the result of the Iron Curtain, which has effectively divided an interrelated Europe into two parts, neither of which is self-sufficient. Russia's purpose in erecting the Iron Curtain, Agar spec ulated, was two-fold. First, the communists intended to "bust the economy of Europe" by di viding industry and agriculture. Second, they hoped to "such the Americans in to make endless handouts in the way of food and raw materials." The objective of the United States therefore, is to supple ment the American economy with that of western Europe, emerging into something like a western world." To accomplish this, he said, western nations must establish a "free flow of men, money and goods." Agar recalled that this free flow was attained accident ally during the nineteenth cen tury. A rise in nationalism and trade barriers during the pres ent century has been largely re sponsible for its end, he said. The flow will not be affected again, he said, by accident Planning and designing are nec essary to restore this movement of men, money and goods.

The only thing we can be is ourselves in the second half of the twentieth century," the lecturer said in his address at the third All- University Convocation in the Coliseum. Agar, advocating the doctrine to combat Communistic doctrines in the "war of words," scolded westerners for boasting about their civilization as a represent ative of Christianity. "More than one-half of us are not Christians," he said. He also accused westerners of 'civil war" and suicide," pointing out that 50 million westerners have been killed by westerners in an internal war of economics and politics. j Exclusive nationalism, accor-j ding to Agar, prefaced the "deadlyj wars" of the twentieth century. This nationalism, the speaker said, grew up side by side with economic prosperity in the nine teenth century. Defining this nationalism. Agar described it as the belief that a man ceases to be a patriot if he considers the interests of another state. In contradiction. Agar said nations of the western world "can grow together." Disunity and a failure to realize the western community as a com mon society are threats to the warned. Agar noted a "rim of starving people," just outside the sphere of western civilization, susceptible there to communist influence. The author, one time Pulitzer Prize winner in American History, accused the western world of helping some nations "magnifi cently" with one hand, then being savage with them with the other. In between the two hands we blame the nations for not being more independent, Agar said. Defining the doctrines the west- tern world is now defending, Agar! cited a "persistent attempt to create a society in which there is freedom of concience." In this society are restrictions which "keep government feet out of certain areas." One of these areas, he noted, is the church. The western world, ac cording to Agar, has attempted to maintain "a distinction between the things that are God's and those that are Caesar s. He ation," whose energy derives from tension of double service to God and to Caesar. 52 BOARD RCCU Installs Officers At Saturday Red Cross College Unit board and executive board members were installed in their respective offices at a Saturday morning in stallation coffee hour in the Union.

EARLE Cell Study Increases Predicted The study and growth of cells may be taken from the laboratory and put into commercial use within the next few years, Dr. Wilton R. Earle said Monday. Dr. Earle. head of the Tissue Culture Division of the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., said that the potential uses of cells are unlimited in the field of medical science. He cited the grafting of human skin as one example. Earle aided in initiating: the development of the new Insti tute of Cell Growth recently organized en the campus under the direction of Dr. Donald M. Pace. He spoke Monday before a group of students and faculty in Besse Hall auditorium, on the "consideration of certain recent advances in animal tissue culture and methods pertaining to physi ological research." He. said that scientists are con fronted with the necessity of ac quiring a background of know ledge of cells which may be used in the future. Magnified photographs of cell structures and cellular growth were shown on a slide projector as Dr. Earle explained them. A new machine used for the photograpbJe recording, in mo tion picture iorm, of cell growth was pictured and described. This machine, he said, became neces sary for this study because the ordinary microscopic study failed to reveal many of the details of the growth. In illustrating the high cost of cellular research equipment, Dr. Earle said that the new machine, composed of three high-power cameras, costs about $12,000. Dr. Earle will present two lec tures at the College of Medicine in Omaha on Wednesday.

The Delta Gamma skit saw Hannah try to pick a man in Havanna. Hannah, a blue singer, turned down offers by a scholar and three sailors before a fat hot tamale man stepped onto the stage to win her heart. The tamale man thought that Hannah was the "hottest thine" he' had seen in a long time. The skit, 4 was spiced with catchy singingl and dance routines.
