penalties already have resulted in people

UK-Soviet debate
good chance for
cultural exchange

The United States represented by some UK students

will face off against the Soviet Union at 7 tonight at the
Student (‘enter Grand Ballroom, It won't be on the battle
field or ( )lympic track. but in a debate

A group of former and current UK debate team mem
bers will debate a Soviet team on the topic of the
relationship between the public media and the government
in a modern society

The Soviet debate team is debating on eight campuses
during its twosweek visit to the [Tinted States.

A debate between lflb‘. and Soviet contingeiits on a sen
sitive topic such as the medias relationship to the govern
inent should be interesting enough to draw anyone,

t'nder the leadership of Mikhail Gorbachev. the Soviet
l‘lllttll seemingly" has made several advances in human
rights. Examining the relationship the media has with the
government in a debate will put those advances on display

The media‘s relationship with the government is not e\
actly‘ a lukewarm issue in the t'nited States t‘llllt‘t‘,

The media. either through lawsuit or an occasional bot
press conference. runs into the government on a daily
basis in the t.‘nited States

Whether this sort of adversarial relationship between
the media and the government is healthy is worth cxaiiiie
ing and discussing

Besides the opportunity to hear skilled debaters argue
about a topic which draws as much controversy in the
tinted States as it undoubtedly does in the Soviet l'ngezv
Hi tt'ull’tllléu or not. the debate also can give students in
slglll into two vastly different cultures

After hearing almost eight years ot Reagan rhetoric
about the evil empire 'Ullltl the president decided it would
be politically advantageous to cool the (‘old \‘l'ar =3
wouldn't be surprising if there were a lot oi misconception-
about Soviet life and culture

Likewise. the Soviet propaganda machine probably has
not always represented the l‘nited States in the truest oi

A debate between two countries that have not always
had the best of relations probably won‘t resolve am
longstanding conflicts or disputes That‘s not its purpose

The debate does. however. offer a chance to two coun
tries that don't always get along the chance to talk

Even if it‘s not our world leaders hammering out an
arms deal. talking can‘t be bad
