Six JW Professors Report
By ROGER HENKLE
"We felt it a very unique expe
rience to be participating in the
founding Qf a university in the
twentieth century," said A. T. An
derson, associate professor of his
tory, upon his return from Turkey
with a committee of six University
The faculty committee had been
sent to Turkey for six weeks in or
der to assist in the establishment
of Ataturk University in eastern
Toured Eastern Tuurkey
The mission of the group was to
tour eastern Turkey, a semi-arid,
agricultural area, and decide on
the best site and best form for the
university. Turkey, which has only
three universities, located in the
larger cities, has been in need of
a university in the eastern section
of the country. The project has
been in consideration since the
1929's, when Kernel Ataturk, then
ruler, first introduced the idea.

The Outside World
By FRED DALY
Johnson Urges New Section
Senctor Edwin C. Johnson (D-Col) asked Thursday that ttw Senate
add a new section condemning Communism in this country and urging
continued investigation of it to the McCarthy censure resolution.
Johnson said he had planned to speak in favor of the censure
resolution and his proposed addition- but had been told that McCarthy
"is quite ill." McCarthy is under treatment for an injured elbow in
Bethesda (Md.) Naval Hospital. He will be there for at least "a few
more days," the hpspital said.
Johnson said the only rearon that he was offering the new section
was that "I've been somewhat concerned by the reports that the
Communists would be very elated over the passage" of the censure
'Senate leaders tentatively agreed Thursday to recess the censure
session until Monday or until Senator McCarthy recovers.
Debate Order Questioned
Two United States senators and the American Civil Liberties Union
as well as a college president have strongly opposed the Defense
Department order forbidding cadets or midshipmen from participating
in intercollegiate debates on U.S. recognition of Red China.
The Navy Department added that if a midshipman, argued for
, recognition, even in debate, it would lay him open for misrepresentation
and give the Reds a "propaganda device."
Senators Ellender (D-La) and Dworshak (R-Idaho) said the order
was wrong to deny midshipmen at the Naval Academy the right to
say what they want and that the- order is "too drastic" and "the truth
will not hurt anybody."
The main support for the order holds that students in military
schools such as Annapolis pr West Point are military personnel. The
subject is very touchy from a military view.
Ike Foresees Economic Rise
President Eisenhower told the 30th annual conference of the New
England Council, in a message, that economists forsee a rise of nearly
30 per cent in real per Capita income, after taxes, in the next decade.
, The president's message pointed out population increases of over
30 millions, continued scientific and technological progress, a rise in
real per capita income and an increase in total national output of
nearly 60 per cent over the present rate.
The Nebraska faculty members
found the, Turks "very hospitable"
people. "We were well received
wherever we went." Anderson said
that the Turks were most anxious
to establish a university. "In
struction in agricultural methods,"
he said, "is very important to this
technically underdeveloped coun
try. "The country knows it is at
least 100 years behind the times,"
The faculty committee felt there
was also a great need for a pri
mary and secondary education in
the area, to correct the high de
gree of illiteracy. They said the
Turks were especially receptive to
the fact that Ataturk University
would include humanities and so
cial sciences departments as well

up," Lambert said.
The establishment of a univer
sity in Turkey patterned - after
American colleges will be a new
development in the Near East.
Most of the other universities in
the area are patterned after the
European universities, Anderson
said, and so it -will be necessary
to train Instructors in the United
States. He expressed belief that

Waring and the Pennsylvanians

The Pennsylvanians began as a
four man group organized by War

Later the group grew to 12 and
