Times Square and Broadway, 70

fte United Nations all combined
to convince the 24 students on the
YWCA United Nations Seminar
that New York City is indeed every

It was the first time most of
fce students had seen New York

figats of Broadway were as bright
ever, but some of the "old iuu

ti tallest and perhaps the most
spectacular of them all, which was
king re-conditioned.
Theater's Attraction
Proof of the attraction the the

Considered one of the brightest
musicals of the current season.
Jer productions which several of

Latin America
Economic Aid Necessary
To Avert Second Crisis
Economic aid to Latin American
countries is necessary to avert
a crisis similar to the one in Gua
temala during last summer, Dr.
Stanley Ross, assistant professor
of history, told NUCWA members
Ross opened his discussion say
ing, wnen you talk about Com
munism, you must recognize that
there are all sorts of Communists.
Ideologically speaking, the Latin
American aspect of Marxism is
planned to appeal tt the intellec
tuals and those interested in re
form." Using Guatemala as a case study,
he pointed out that changes in the
last few decades have been brought
on by exploitation both by foreign
ers and domestic interests who re
fuse to recognize the need for so
cial reform and improvement. He
added that the situation is aggra
vated by the fact that two per cent
of the people own seventy per
cent of the land.
The four dominant econimic in
terests in Guatemala are the for

chorus of "Me, too; I want one
. . . . . . i

to another room and shortly re
appeared produly displaying a
whole armful of assorted shapes
andshapes of bottles. In addition,
people drinking wine at near-by
tables hastened to empty their
bottles and add them to the collec
tion. The group finally made their
way to the theater to the accom
panying clink of bottles and the
mildly startled stares of by-passers,
one of whom commened "The
sure don't look like they've drunk
that much."
Jazz Night
Saturday night was jazz night
for much of the group. Birdland
where Sarah Vaughn was appear
ing. Basin Street with Woody Her
man and the Metropole were the
most frequented spots.
A popular spot with the coeds
was the Clock at the Biltmore, the
traditional meeting place for coll
ege students in New York. They
discovered several mutual acquain
tances in their conversations with
other students.
UN Tow
Other high points of the stay in
New York were the tour through
tise United Nations Building, the
tour of the city and the boat
ride around Manhattan.
The trip itself was made by bus,
with the chief "entertainment" be
ing trying to find a possible sleep
ing position. The group returned
Tuesday at 6 a.m.
Miss Mary Jane Mulvaney, as
sistant professor of physical edu
cation, accompanied the group in
the absence of YWCA director Jan
ice Osburn who had been called
home by the death of her father.
Students from the University
making the trip were: Joyce Laase,

eign investors, domestic landown
ers, Indians and mestizos, Ross
said. Communist infiltration has
been into the mestizo or profession
al class and the Indians whom no
one else had considered important
enough to bother with, he added
Ross stressed that where there
is a popular movement aiming to
serve the mass of people, the Com
munists ally themselves with the
other side. There is no more talk
of helping the poor or of social
reform. He gave an example of a
movement in Peru in which the
Communists fought the people who
lived in a dream world of their
own and forced them underground
Ross added that a significant
thing about the Communists in Lat
in America is that although their
card-carrying members comprise
only two-fifths of one per cent of
the population, they are so well
organized that their candidates

Disc Jockeys
Praise Style
Of MB Band
Lincoln disc jockeys recommend
this year's Military Ball band, Ted
Weems. Comments such as "very
dancable," "Ought to draw a good
crowd" and "a real sharp vocalist'
are some of the recommendations
that have come from these band
Red Ingle, who formerly played
with Spike Jones, will be featured
as will Bonnie Anne Shaw, a vocal
ist recently imported from Ireland.
Weems carries a personnel of about
15 members.
Ted Weems has been in the music
business for over 30 years and was
considered one of the "top bands
in the land" in 1946. But he has
recently completely changed his
style. According to Bob Askee of
a local radio station, "Weems has
a brand new sharp style. He's no
longer an old people's band. He is
now definitely a band for the
young people"
The "new sound" bf the band in
cludes both sweet and hot music.
Another radio man, Darrell Barker
said, "This band is definitely
danceable. Weems doesn't stick to
that two-beat stuff that has become
so common. This music is rhythm,
almost shuffle-type rhythm."
According to disc jockey Harry
Garrett, Weems started such per
sons as Elmo Tanner and Perry
Como on their way to the top of
the music world.

The Outside World
Staff Writer
Dulles Speaks
The United States plans to "keep its powder dry" and its blood
pressure down as long as there are no intolerable acts of Communist
aggression, Secretary of State Dulles said in a speech before the
4-H Congress in Chicago.
Republican Senate Leader Knowland and others arguing for a
tough, militant course are voices in the wilderness insofar as the
President and his chief policy advisors are concerned, Dulles said.
"Our nation will react, and react vigorously, but without allowing
ourselves to be provoked into action which would be a violation of our
international obligations and which would impair the alliance of the
free nations," Dulles said.
Brown Cautions Senate On Censure
The censure of Sen. McCarthy would establish dangerous prece
dence limiting Congressional investigations, Sen. Ernest S. Brown (R
Nev) told the Senate Tuesday as the first speaker under a debate
limitation argument.
The debate ranged over McCarthy's proposal that the censure talks
be brought to a showdown Wednesday or Thursday. Sen. McCarthy
won approval of a proposal to "proceed to vote" on the first of
amendments to a two-count censure resolution pending against him.
. McCarthy asked for an end to debate and declared that he would
withdraw any "discourteous and offensive" language such as that
which led to the censure charges. But in "facts and opinions which I
held, I am unchanged," he said.
Czech Premier Proposes Red Command
Czech Premier Vilem Sirosky has called for a combined military
command of eight Communist countries to meet what he called the
threat of a rearmed West Germany. Such a command would be the
Communist countries' counterpart to the North Atlantic Treaty Organ
ization. , Siroky spoke at the Communist countries European security con
ference which also heard Premier Otto Grotwohl of East Germany
propose creation of an East German army if the Western Powers
ratify the Paris agreements authorizing the creation of a West German
The Soviet Union probably would head any such combined com
mand. The Western Powers refused to attend the conference.
Adenauer Continues Alliance Fight
Chancellor Konrad Adenauer pressed forward in his fight to rivet
West Germany to the Atlantic Alliance after parrying a determined
challenge to German rearmament in two state elections.
The Chancellor's Christian Democratic Union lost ground in Ba
varia and Hesse but held control of the Bavarian state government. This
insured the Adenauer regime's retention of its two-thirds majority in the
upper house of the federal Parliament whose members are named by
the state governments.
Adenauer's controversial agreement with France to "Europeanlze"
the Saar Valley rated much less attention from the voters than the
rearmament problem.
