Don't Rejoice Now
Says Bill Shirer,
Prominent Analyst
Mac Court Lecturer Warns Nazism Rising {
In Germany; Communists Will Not Retreat
Reviewing the state of the world since January, 1949, Williant
L- Shirer. noted news analyst informed an audience in McArthuf
Court last night that the United States has very little grounds
for rejoicing.
"We must recognize the fact that the Chinese Communists
have conquered China, that they are not going to be driven out
ot there or anyplace else where they now exist as rulers. We must
Robert D. Clark, assistant dean
of the College of Liberal Arts, will
be moderator at a forum tonight
on the topic, "Should Parents Be
Responsible for the Delinquencies
of Their Children?”
Jack R. Parsons, professor of
sociology, will be one of four
speakers on the forum, which
starts at 8 p.m. at the Congrega
tional Church.
Parsons will speak on "Social
Worker's Evaluation of the Eu
gene Ordinance.”
Eugene recently passed an ordi
nance that would hold parents re
sponsible for delinquent acts of
their children. The ordinance has
received widespread criticism from
social workers and others in the
Eugene area.
The forum is a session of the
Eugene YMCA “Little Town Hall.”
Other speakers on the program
are Keith Jones, chief of police,
Lewis Sherman, chief juvenile offi
cer for Lane County, and Stanley
R. Darling, attorney.
A question and answer period
will follow the speeches.
March of Dimes' Dance Scheduled
After Oregon-Washington Contest
A benefit dance for the March
of Dimes campaign will be held
Friday night at Willamette Parle
immediately following the Oregon
Washington basketball game.
Johnny Lusk and his band will
furnish music for the evening.
Campus clothes will be in order.
Tickets, priced at $1 a person,
may be obtained today and Friday
in the Co-op and through represen
tatives in men’s living organiza
tions. All profits from the dance
will go into the Eugene March of
Dimes campaign fund.
Records Offered
An album of records will be giv
en to the living organization buy
ing the most tickets, according to
the number of men in the house,
Kay Kuckenberg, campus drive co
chairman reported Wednesday.
Campus talent will be featured
during the dance intermission. In
charge of entertainment is Fred
Young, University talent commit
tee chairman.
“Since it will be Dads’ Day week
end, why not bring the dads out
to the ‘Park’ too,” Miss Kucken
berg suggested. She urges as many
students as possible to support the
March of Dimes fund by attend
Jaycees to Sponsor
Official sponsor of the dance is
the Eugene Junior Chamber of
Commerce. A Chamber of Com
merce committee, under the direc
tion of Chairman Marshall Glos,
salesman for Parmenter Pontiac,
is directing the Eugene drive.
The Willamette Park dance will
imitate the March of Dimes bene
fit dance given each year in Wash
ington, D.C., on Franklin D. Roose
velt's birthday, Miss Kuckenbcrg
University students have been
active throughout this week and
last week collecting dimes for the
drive. Each night during dinner,
flying speeches, “blind men," wom
en's trios, and other skits have
been entertaining residents of
campus living organizations.
also realize,” Shircr continuecf,
that Germany is once more a
hot bed of rabid Pan-German,
nationalism, and Nazism is
once more on the march.”
Policy Shaken
Shircr further declared that
the whole structure of Ameri
can foreign policy has been rudely
shaken in this last year by threo
significant events:
1. The collapse of Nationalist
China and the succeeding rise of
Communism in that country.
2. The collapse, or near-collapso
of "our friends abroad, particu
larly those in the sterling block.”
3. The development of the Rus
sian atomic bomb.
Shirer envisions no real reasons
for hopefulness in attempting to
bolster Chiang's sagging Nation
alists. He supported the decision of
the United States State Depart
ment in refusing further aid to the
Nationalists, declaring that "aid
given to Chiang when he controlled
most of the Chinese mainland
proved useless. There is no reason
for supposing that further aid now
that the Nationalists are entrench
ed on the island of Formosa will bo
any more useful.”
Bad Leadership
Shirer denied that America is to
blame for the Chinese debacle. Ho
said that "the world’s worst lead
ership, leading to a complete losa
of will to fight, combined with
disasterous corruption in the
armed forces led to the Chinese
Nationalist defeats.
“The loss of China," Mr. Shirer
continued, "cannot be minimized.
It now means a Communist Em
pire stretching from the Elbe to
the Pacific.”
Shirer deplored the situation
now existing in Germany. He brief
ly reviewed the occupation of that
country and stated that with all
the money, time and energy poured
into the recovery and rehabilita
tion of Germany, "the German
people remain fundamentally un
changed. They are merely waiting
for another Hitler. They are utter
ly contemptuous of democracy, re
gretting not that they fought tho
war, but that they lost the war.”
Nazis Take Over
They still believe, Shirer contin
ued, that Nazism is a good thing,
but that under Hitler it was just
badly carried out. Since the war’s
end, the Nazis have completely
taken over all the lower posts in
both eastern and western Ger
many, Shirer said.
Shirer could give little hope for
an immediate reconciliation of the
world situation. He cited the Tito
revolt in Yugoslavia as one of the
more pleasant aspects in the world,
pointing out that not since 1917
have the Russians been so wor
ried over the fate of their Commu
nist organization. He went on to
declare that the losses suffered by
Communism in western Europe
will not be regained by Russia.
Both Italy and France, said Shirer,
owe much of their present condi
tion as far as governmental poli
