Of Commie infiltration
By SUSIE SMITHBERGER
Nebraskan Staff Writer
Three foreign students and a Univer
sity history professor discussed Commu
nist infiltration yesterday in conjunction
with International Student Week spon
sored by the Student Union.
"There is no Communism as such in
Africa but there are many Communistic
traits," said Thomas Mills. "The Com
munism that is there comes as a result of
economic conditions of the newly liber
ated countries," he added.
The countries must turn to either the
east or west for aid, said the African
student. They turn to the west first but
if they are not satisfied they turn to the
east. Countries prefer to remain neutral
so they can turn to either one for help,
noted Mills. .
"The governments are based on de
mocracy but there are such things as
lack of freedom of speech and the possi
bility of going to jail without trial that
reflect Communism," Mills commented.
The president is elected by popular
vote but when in power he feels that
since he was popularly elected he can
do as he pleases, according to Mills.
"The politicians go not with the in
tention of serving the nation but with the
idea of accumulating wealth," he stated.
Tony Rodrigues of Cuba said that
many of his countrymen are killed every
day fighting Castro's government but the
United States doesn't hear about it This
will continue as long as Castro is there,
"Cuba, in Castro's point of view,,js
the only country in this hemisphere in
which freedom is practiced," declared
Rodriques. "Castro says that in Cuba
everybody is equal. However, some peo
ple are more equal than others as it now
stands," he added.
When Castro first came to Cuba, he
was merely a social reformer, said the
Cuban. He intended to do good things,
Including making social features more
"Then he nationalized too much. He
took away so much land from the large
landowners that they could no longer
"As he began nationalizing everything
some people began to think he wanted
to introduce Communism but the majo
rity of the people had not enough educa
tion to recognize this fact and do some
thing about it" noted Rodrigues empha
sized. Those against Castro were , impris
oned or exiled, he emphasized. It was
impossible to remain neutral, one must
. be for the government to prevent suspi
cion of treason.
"Since a year ago, Castro has been
losing the support of the people and very
few remain behind him anymore. There
are now posts in every block or so, a
house in charge of reporting anything
suspicious to the government. They
really keep an eye on conspirators," he
Castro Blames U.S.
In commenting on anti-America.iim
in Cuba, Rodrigues said that whenever
Castro wants to stir up this feeling he
links the United States with the fact that
Cuba has been under dictatorship since
it became a nation.
"There is some support for this rea
soning," said the Cuban. "The U.S. has:
more or less supported dictatorships in
order to Keep stable government. One in
stance was their support of Batista by
sending arms at the time of the revolu
tion." "Napoleon compared China to a
sleeping lion that could do something
when it wakes up," said James Wong of
Hong Kong. "Communism was in there
when the lion was waking up."
The country was torn by warlords
which the government had to resist so
there was no time to deal with Commu
nism, explained Wong.
Then came the Japanese and World
War II, and after that the Communists
took over the mainland of China.
"The educated people were concerned
with how the country could progress fast
and efficiently. They looked to Russia
i who made rapid progress and thought
they could do the same.
"What they failed to realize was that
the progress only occurred at the same
time as Communism, not as a result of
it," he added.
There is no spot in the world that is
as concerned with Communism as is
Hong Kong, said the citizen of that prov-
ince. Its future lies completely on how
. the Communistic trend goes.
"Hong Kong is the junction between
Communism and anti-Communism,"
said Wong. "The two factions get along
with each other very well. There are no
restrictions keeping them apart."
The government does try to control
extreme demonstrations but otherwise
freedom is practiced, according to Wong.
"If Hong Kong is to exist as it is,
the political institutions around it must
remain the same," commented Wong.
"If Russia takes over Formosa, Hong
Kong will be added to China. If China
becomes free, Hong Kong will join it."
Dr. Albin Anderson, University pro
fessor in history, said, "There is a great
difference between the Marxist and Lenin
ideal and the reality of what Communism
"They insisted that Communism
would make its appearance first in well
developed countries that had already had
capitalism and democracy. The only
country this has occurred in is Czecho
slovakia." They also predicted that Communism
would destroy colonialism and imperial
ism, said the professor. They thought all
people would get together against im
perialistic powers and rebel.
Then when the Colonial revolution
took place, Communism would see that
the seizure of power takes place with
Communism in the saddle.
"However, in most cases the coun
tries have released their regimes on their
own, without revolt," stated Anderson.
He concluded,, "I am not unhappy
with the Communistic theory about solv
ing problems but I am concerned with
what it is doing to the individual. When
individual freedom and choice go, life
