U.S. MUST AID WORLD UNITY, SAYS SPEAKER
By lj»rry Holttirt
The cnix of world troubles is |
the lark of international unity I
unity which walks hand and hand j
with liberty. It is up to the United i
States to bring about such unity
ami to defeat the program of so-'
cialized oneness sought hy the ]
Union of Soviet Socialist Repub
lics.
Thus Julian Towster of the Uni
versity of California, an expert
upon Soviet Russia, summed up
his remarks upon "The Present
USSR Nationality Rohry" Sunday
morning before an audience of j
political science instructors from!
throughout the Northwest.
Tows ter, who has held posts ir.
the Department of State and Jus
tice and served with the Office of:
Strategic Services during World
War II. outlined briefly the evolu
tion of the Soviet nationality pol-:
icy and the theory lying behind
the political decisions which put
it into effect.
"The problem facing Russia.'
with its polyglot of nations, is one i
of building a unified whole fr.im j
varied and geographically extend
ed peoples," Towster said.
Among the some 175 different
national groups found under the
control of Soviet Russia, 125 lang-1
uages and dialects are spoken. ;
Basically then, Towster pointed
out, the problem is one of linguis
tics and of culture.
The solution to the Soviet dilem
ma has been the effort to pro
mote a national language — the
Russian language — and to at
tempt to establish a national cul
ture through group expression
'( ading to a fusion of central ideas,1

For Draft Test Cards

service have been slow to pick up
their application cards for the

The double-postals (Selective
Service System Forms 106 ami

in immediately so that the appli
cation may be processed, officials
said.
Failure to send in the applica

The results of the test will be
weighed with other factors in de
termining draft status of students.
The forms may be had upon re
quest from the local draft boaicl
at 127 Seventh Ave. E.
J. S. Carlson, director of the
counseling center, who will admin
ister the tests on the campus,
pointed out that his staff has been
asked to handle only 500 appli
cants on each of the three dates —
May 26, June 16, and June 30. Con
sequently. those who apply early
will get the first chance to tak

Those who are unable to take
the tests here will have an oppor
tunity at one of the other .13 test
ing centers throughout the state.
All units of the State System of
Higher Education except Vanport
College have been selected to ad
minister the test.
