'Glad To Be Here'
Jacks on
Copy Editor
Colin Jackson, visiting profes
sor of political science, is sincere
when he addresses an audience and
says, "Im glad to be here."
The Britisher spent last sum
mer in North Africa where lie was
in a town In which 1,000 persons
were killed by an earthquake two
days after he departed. Jackson
left his hotel room in another
African community and the ad
joining room to his was demol
ished by a hand grenade an hour
after he handed his room key
to the desk clerk.
Jackson, a free lance reporter
for the British Broadcasting Com
pany, is teaching international re
lations at the University. He is
filling the place of Norman Hill,
professor of political science, who
is on a semester's leave of absence
to teach ut Washington Univer
sity. Recently In Paris
Recently returned from Libya
and North Atlantic Treaty Organ
ization headquarters in Paris,
Jackson hopes to travel to the Far
East after his term at the Uni
versity expires. He plans to visit
Japan, Indo-China and India.
Jackson has had personal con
ferences with many world leaders
including Prime Minister Nehru of
India and Chiang Kai-shek of Na
tionalist China.
"Nehru appears to be a very
worn out man whose days are
numbered," Jackson said. "He is
not anti-American and he is very
much anti-Communist in his own
Jackson stated that Nehru will
probably become more anti-Russian
now that Malenkov has lost
power in the U.S.S.R. Malenkov
was a cultured, moderate man
who favored co-existence while
Kruschev is a "crude, vulgar coal
miner," who hates intellectuals.
Nehru planned to visit Russia
in the future, Jackson said, but it
is doubtful that the trip will take
place, now that this change in gov
ernment has taken place.
Jackson described Chiang as be
ing an "unrealistic, bitterly disap
pointed man." He lives simply m
his mountain home and believes
that a Nationalist invasion of
China would be welcomed by the
people of the mainland.
Chiang also believes his forces
could have successfully attacked
the mainland long ago if it were
not for the lack of transports,
Jackson said.
Formosa's local self government
is quite good, Jackson said, and
there is a literacy rate of 80 -per
cent on the island which exceeds
most other Asiatic countries.
Chiang's son runs the Ministry of
Enlightenment which is actually a
secret police system, Jackson
The army's average acre is ap
proaching 30 and most of its equip
ment is old. but they are well fed
and clothed, Jackson said. The
English reporter visited Formosa
in 1953 at the invitation of the
Nationalist government and had
tea with Chiang.
Like 'Containment
A war in the Formosan area
would probably bring assistance
from Britain, Jackson said, al
though the United Kingdom is
Shorthand, Typing
Useful In Career
Staff Writer
The gates to writing careers are
often opened by an adequate
knowledge of shorthand and typ
ing. Miss Polly Weaver, colle&a
and career director of Mademoi
selle Magazine, said.
In a Nebraskan interview Tues
day, Miss Weaver said that most
young women break into magazine
editorial jobs by first being a sec
retary and then working up to a
writing position as they show rich
ideas and talented writing skilL
A native of Falls City, Neb.,
Miss Weaver is a graduate of
Smith College and former general
editorial assistant and associate
editor of Harper's Bazaar.
Miss Weaver, Mrs. Arthur J.
Crone in private life, is visiting
the University and other cam
puses to interview College Board
Members of Mademoiselle and
other women interested in jobs
in New York City. She will inter
view approximately 30 women
here. She is also determining the
'special flavor" of each campus,
the way in which one campus dif
fers from another, the strong de
partments in each University, the
advantages of the schools, and the
main interests and thoughts of stu
dents. Asked how Nebraska compares
with other Universities, Miss Wea
ver said that although she had
been here only one day, she be
lieved ihat must Cfiiversity wom
en she interviewed were quite ma
ture and had sensible end practi
cal ideas about careers. She said
they seem very alert and gave
an especially neat and attractive
appearance. Fashion-wise, Miss
Weaver said, women at Nebraska
dress with great smartness and
style in comparison with several
other campuses.
Other stops in Miss Weaver's
tour of colleges will include the
University of Missouri, University
of Arkansas, Stephens College,
Rice University and the University
of Houston.
College Board members are Bar
bara Sharp, Berne Rosenquist and
Cynthia Henderson. Board mem
bers send three assignments to
Mademoiselle for judging. In the
spring, 20 guest editors are chosen
from the Board Members for a
month in New York editing Mademoiselle.
"not keen on a two-nation fight
over Quemoy."
"We don't want to leave Amer
ica to go it alone, however," Jack
son said. The British people like
the word "containment," but they
do not like the phrase "massive
retaliation," he said concerning
British attitude toward United
States foreign policy.
Jackson said that Sir Winston
Churchill will probably come over
to America for another "chat"
with the nation's leaders.
Asked about Britain's recent an
nouncement of manufacture of hy
drogen bombs, Jackson said that
this move was not a lack of con
fidence in the United States but
the adoption of a policy of not
keeping "all our eggs in one
"In international politics today."
Jackson said, "you can talk softly
if you carry a big stick."
Jackson pointed out Britain's
progress as evidenced by the end
of rationing after IS years. "Things
are going well in Britain," he said.
An election is expected in the fall
and Churchill will probably lead
the Conservative party again,
Jackson added.
The 360 million people of India
are in the most danger of suc
cumbing to Communism, Jackson
stated. He said that if India turned
Communist, the whole of Asia
might be lost to the Communist
powers with the possible exception
of the Southwestern area.
Jackson said he believed the
money spent on the defense of For-;
mosa could have been more gain
fully employed in aid to India's
agriculture program.
The work of former Ambassador
to India Chester Bowles was
praised by Jackson. Bowles was
a great influence on Nehru. There
is no reason why the United States
and India cannot get along, he
Jackson attended Oxford Univer
sity. This visit is his fourth to
the United States and he has vis
ited 46 states.
