Is it the only hope for world
peace or only a farce presented
to a world-wide audience with
plenty of rhetoric but little ac
tion? The Union's Model UN
(MUN) committee believes the
UN is "our real hope," ac
cording to chairman Dave
Hoist. The committee offers its
program as a means for
students to understand UN
Model UN is "an important
learning experience" where
relevant issues are discussed,
Colleen Harper, MUN publicity
chairman said.
By working with other
delegations and supporting
positions other than those of the
U.S., participants get a better
perspective on world politics,
she explained.
Issues to be considered at the
Dec. 4 and 5 mock assembly
will be Red China's admission
to the UN, the Middle East
situation, the South African

states problem.
The committee hopes to have
85 delegations at the assembly
which will be televised on
educational TV, said Harper.
MUN Advisor Jim Smith said
the committee is trying to get a
speaker for Dec. 3 through the
Newsweek magazine speaker
service. This service provides
speakers for specific topics at
no cost to students, he added.
At present, 25 delegations
have been formed. Applications
may be obtained from living
units, Harper said.
Applications require the
names of five delegates and the
country the delegation wants to
represent. Countries are
assigned on a first-come first
serve basis.
Harper said an $8 fee from
each delegation covers all costs
of the program except in
dividual meals and lodgings.

Hoist said the committee is
having an all-out campaign this
year, and "everything to date
is going ahead of schedule."

"The Brezhnev d;cf.rine
reserves for the Soviet Union
the right to interfere in the af
fairs of any member of the
socialist commonwealth," said
Jerzy Hauptmann in a lectur?
sponsored by the Institute for
Political Analysis Tuesday
afternoon in the Nebraska
Hautmann chairman of
Park College's political science
department in ParkvilLe, Mo.,
added that this doctrine made
any coercive action such as the
Czechoslovakian Invasion
"completely rational" from
Russia's point of view.
Meanwhile, "we in the United
States are fascinated by the
th?ory of evolution," said
Hauptmann. "We believe there
is a kind of progress in Eastern
Europe that will occur no ma
tter what we do."
Hauiptmann said time-worn
elements of this "evolutionism
mythology" are the belief that
a general liberalization is going
on behind the Iron Curtain, that
ttiie Soviet-style planned
economy is. evolving into a
market econiamy, and that anti
Soviet nationalism is sweeping
Eastern European countries.

Hauptmann. "If you overstep,
sm;thing happens to you."
Two myths were added dur
ing the Czechoslovakian ex
periment, in Hauptmairn's opi
nion. The first was "socialism
has a human face and can be
good to individuals." The se
cond was that the Communist
Party could act like a party,
and perhaps even accept oppo
sition. "Soviet tanks destroyed these
myths," said Hauptmann.
The Czechoslovakian inva
sion caused a lot of confusion
in the West, continued
Hauptmann, but now "we're
back to playing games again.
We're talking about Hawks and
Doves in the Politburo,
analyzing the seating arrange
ment at (Communist)
meetings, and so on."
And Americans are creating
"a new revised standard edi
tion of myths," he said. "We
love myths."
One of these myths, as
Hauptmann sees it, concerns
Red China. "We think the
Soviets are so afraid of that big
giant that they are going to
leave Eastern Europe alone
now. As if they can't con
