Speaking on "Wisdom versus
Know-How," Joseph .Krutch la

He cited the classic example of
the Atom Bomb.
"Science can tell us how to
make, but science can not an

circumstances the A-bomb should
be used and what people should
be destroyed. There is no scientific
answer possible. What we have to
do is put more stress on the man
and less on the atom."

over-emphasis on science lays in

blood if the need should arise.
At the present time, a student
n.-o'Dig blood must replace any

Cross plan any University student
requiring blood would receive it
without cast or obligation.

Arab Status
In Middle East
Bernadine Orloff, free lance re
porter and writer who has just re
turned from the Middle East, dis
cussed the condition of the Arab
rations in the Middle East today.
Miss Orioff. speaking on the
topic "Can Peace Be Maintained
Between the Arabs and Israel",
said. "I had the feeling that some
thing fine could be made of Egyp
tian children and Egypt if the
standard of living could be raised."
She told of a visit to an Egyptian
home in which the cattle and hu
mans were housed under one roof.
"You can't fight who is respon
sible for those conditions. Whoever
is responsible for that has been
dead a long time," Miss Orloff
"Nasser is faced with four dread
ful enemies in Egypt today, fear,
poverty, disease and mistrust,"
Miss Orloff said. "You can't tell
the Egyptian farmer you must do
this. Yoj have to ask him come
watch me do this. The next year he
wjll take your better method and
Jo it himself the next year. It is
slow process," ilie concluded.
