US-Russia Resume Talks
Secret talks between the United States and Russia on .President
Eisenhower's atoms-for-peace plan have been reopened after a two
month deadlock. It was learned the negotiations were back on the
5 tt" star received a note from Soviet Foreign
AoS are uncertain whether the talks will produce
Russian agreement either on tne international, ..0w,
or other atoms-for-peace problems. They believe Russia is now m a
position where it has to give the appearance of being interested in
helping mankind by using atomic energy.
For propaganda reasons, if nothing else, Russia cannot afford
to let the Allies take the lead. Consequently, officials said Russians
in the UN even though it was
sponsored by Mr. Eisenhower.
Navv Criticiies Monty
The Navy has directly criticized British Field Marshal Montgom-
ktv nnH fipfpnried aircraft carriers as "massive retaliation weapons
that rivi the United States a "tremendous advantage." Montgomery,
mnnder in Europe under American General
Alfred M. Gruenther, recently called earners expensive and obsolete.
He said no more should be built.
James H. Smith Jr., assistant Navy secretary for air, sharply
disputed this view. Smith said there is a "fairly substantial differ
ence between problems as seen by an Englishman with responsibilities
in Europe as compared with the problems as visualized in the
The Navy plainly was stung by Montgomery's criticisms made
in Los Angeles and London. Smith, in a speech not as well noted,
said recently the aircraft carrier was "experiencing a resurrection
among air power thinkers everywhere."
Korean Allies' To Meet
The United States scheduled another conference with its 15
Korean War allies to discuss how to push in the U.N. Assembly for
the release of U.S. airmen and other Allied personnel in Red China's
The Allies were prepared to withstand demands by Russia for
Red China to be invited here for the debates and then vote for the
Assembly to take up the question. An Assembly session Thursday has
already been planned.
One problem facing the Allies was how strong a condemnation of
Red China to seek. Another was how to make the U.N. machinery go
to work, since the Chinese Communists rejected diplomatic overtures
at Geneva and through British channels.

To Discuss
Free Ideas
The second in a series of lec
tures observing the Columbia Uni
versity Bicentennial celebration
will be held at the University Art
at 8 p.m.
Dr. Lane W. Lancaster, professor
of poitical science, will speak on
the topic, "The Doctored." In con
junction with the motto of the
art gallery exhibition "Man's right
to knowledge and the free use
thereof," Dr. Lancaster will dis
cuss learning as related to the stu
dent's capacity to master and use
it and teaching as compared with
the practicability of the knowledge
taught. ...
In Dr. Lancaster's opinion, teach
ers must be sure of the gflpunds
of their belief before offering their
ideas on the authority of their uni
versity; but, once convinced of the
truth of a proposition, they must de
fend it.
There are no questions not still
open to debate, the winner of the
1953-54 Outstanding Teacher award
has said. Every scholar, just be
cause he is set apart to reflect,
is certain to be in open or covert
warfare with society at some time,
Lancaster added, and a society is
free precisely to the extent that
it faces that prospect without fear.

IFC Plans '
Chili Feed
The Interfraternity Council will
entertain orphans at a Christmas
Party in the Union Ballroom Dec.
15 at 7 p.m.
Other years each individual fra
ternity has planned a party to en
tertain the orphans, but it is felt
that this one get-together will co
ordinate efforts to do more good
and will cost less money, Tom
Woodward, originator of the idea,
He thinks that this plan is more
organized and will contact more
children. At individual parties, the
children were not given attention
separately, and many times the
same children would be invited to
two or three parties and others
would not be included at any.
Eighty-three children from
Whitehall Orphanage between tha
ages of five and 16 have been in
vited to the Chili feed. A Santa
Claus will pass out presents which
the IFC will buy with money taken
from house treasuries. Tentative
plans for entertainment Include a
band and a vocal group singing
Christmas carols.
Each fraternity will send ap
proximately five members to this
party so that each child will be
entertained by one or two boys.
In addition, the members of IFC
will attend.
Walt Wright, IFC treasurer, is
the chairman for the party and
also is in charge of buying the
presents. Dick Reische heads the
entertainment committee.
Tom Woodward said that if the
arrangement works, the Christmas
Party will become an annual affair.
