Chancellor Opens Clinic With
Challenge To Aid In Fulfilling
'Primitive9 People s Desires
In order for the world to win
the "struggle for the minds of
men," the free, advanced nations
must "stand positively" on a six
point program which represents
the basic desires of the people of
more "primitive" nations.
Such was the opinion expressed
by Chancellor R. G. Gustavson in
the first of three summer session
World Affairs clinics Monday
The six desires the chancel
lor had in mind are: (1) better
health standards; (2) improved
education and educational fa
cilities; (3) right to own land;
(4-) modern farming methods;
(5) self government and free
dom aad honesty in elections;
and (6) the right of the people
to control their own resources.
Most of these desires, he said,
have existed since the beginning
of mankind, and are not merely
created by today's advanced civil
ization or modern science. He
added, furthermore, that some of
these desires run hand in hand,
For instance, he said, if the "prim
itive" people are given modern
medicine without eood food, onlv
the cause of death is eliminated,
but the suffering, starvation and
desire for better living remains,
Thus the desire for better health
