THE NEBRASKAN Wednesday February 23, 1955 'Glad To Be Here' Jacks on 2) By SAM JENSEN 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 country." 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 stated. 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 'Mademmoiselle' Shorthand, Typing Useful In Career By CYNTHIA HENDERSON 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 basket." "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 said. Jackson attended Oxford Univer sity. This visit is his fourth to the United States and he has vis ited 46 states. -On The Social Side Marilyn Heck.
