Change in System's Nature?
Schneider Chooses Russia
As Topic for Spanish Club
A University professor told members of the Span
ish Club Thursday that the United States cannot antici
pate any profound change in the Soviet Union's policy
until the nature of its system changes.
Dr. Carl Schneider, professor of political science,
suggested to the Spanish students that, banning the
utimate (war), internal change within the Soviet Union
may ultimately accumulate to change the nature of the
system. t(The nature being the Soviets Union's present
belief in an eventual world revolution to communism.)
Dr. Schneider addressed the Spanish Club on the
topic of Cuba as a determinate of Soviet policy in gen
eral He said that the Soviet's 'adventure" in Cuba is
not an isolated episode, nor unrelated to Soviet intentions,
Speaking in categorical terms, Professor Schneider
suggested that the Soviet Union presents four laces
four points in its policy picture. Each has a relevance
and bearing, he said, on the Soviet's policy behavior
and are in back of the Cuban crisis, the Berlin .question
and any change in policy attributed to the Russians.
Communist Nation
The Soviet Union is a communist nation. "It is
the well-spring of all communist agitation," said the
political scientist.
Its belief in the Marx doctrine gives the Soviet Un
ion confidence in their ultimate 'victory in the class
struggle, he said, and permits the Soviet Union great
"Lenin, who is the main pronhet of the communist
bloc since de-Stalinization, said in 1918 that retreat is
permissable, even preferable, to risking the ruin of the
communist party;" said Dr. Schneider.
The Soviet Union b e l i eves in world revolution.
The Communist bloc anticipates the spread c-f commu
nism by Teason of the achievements of the Soviet Un
ion the first successful communist country the pol
itical Bcentist told the group.
Revolution Effort -"This
effort (world revolution) is turned on and off per
iodically," said the professor.
The Soviet Union is a totalitarian dicattorship. Pro
fessor Schneider stressed the fact that the Russian's
new 20th Century form of a dictatorship extends its
scope and power into every phase of its society, eco
nomics and private life.
The Soviet Union is a nation state. The Russians have
the same search for allies, concern for balance of power,
Teliance on force but with the possibility of negotiation
and compromise, as other nations, including the United
