If the western world escapes
the threat of communism, future
historians may regard Russia as
a sheep in wolfs clothing, de
clared Herbert Agar, convoca
tion speaker, in a press confer
ence Tuesday.
"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.

here intensely and loyally, Diplomat-Author Herbert Agar
said Tuesday.
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
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
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

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.

Cell Study
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
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.
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.
