laboratory had
been changed from a point near the

The change apparently was made
because of a request by Dr. William S. Taylor, dean of the College

Phi Delta Kappa
Meets Wednesday
Phi Delta Kappa, honorary edu
cation fraternity, will hold its first
meeting of the second semester at
12:30 o'clock Wednesday in the foot'
ball room of the Union building.
Dr. J. D. Williams, director of the
University school will be principal
speaker at the luncheon meeting. All
Summer Session students who are
members of Phi Delta Kappa are
invited to attend.

An institute in radio dramatic production will be held at the University radio studios July 23 through
July 27, and will be conducted by
the recreation department of the
Works Progress Administration of
Kentucky, in cooperation with the
University studios. Planned primarily
for 10 or 12 WPA recreation leaders
from various parts of Kentucky, the
courses will also be open without
charge to selected individuals who
may apply for admission. All students will be required to register
and to be present for all sessions.
The purpose of the institute will
be to train recreation leaders in
the fundamentals of producing and
directing radio plays. Leaders taking
the course must have elemental
training in drama leadership. At the
conclusion of the institute, the WPA
leaders taking the course will be expected to organize radio drama clubs
in their own towns and to direct
these clubs in regularly scheduled
broadcasts over local stations.
The workshop method of training
will be used during the institute with
as many of the enrolled students
taking part as possible. Discussion
will be encouraged and leaders will
be expected to make suggestions as
to production methods. Students will
be adjudged by their general acting
ability, by their aptitude, attitude,
and by their ability to grasp pro
duction details.
The institute will be under the di
rection of Ben Russak, playwright
and director, and at present a mem
ber of the state WPA staff in
the recreation department, in charge
of drama and choral music. Russak
was a former director of the play
writing division of the Federal
Theatre project, and is the author of
three produced
plays.
Russak has also written script for
the "Voices of Yesterday" and other
commercial programs. He also wrote
the original motion picture story
"Calling America."

Enters War, It Will Be A Victory
For Totalitarianism, Barnes Asserts
U. S.

By JIM CALDWELL
"If we go into the European war,"
Dr Harry Elmer Barnes, New York
historian, told an audience of 500 in
Memorial hall on Friday night, "it
will mean that Hitler has conquered
the United States without firing a

shot"
Such an entry. Dr. Barnes explained, would "inevitably result in the
triumph of totalitarianism, and the
end of civil liberties in this country."
Dr. Barnes, who has been delivering a series of lectures on current
history in this section of the country during the past several weeks,
was brought to the University for
the address by a group of his former students and others at the University who share his point of view.
The speaker, who identified him
self with the "continentalism"
of
famed Historian Charles A. Beard,
reiterated to the audience of summer students and townspeople his
opinion that the war abroad is "a
bogus war, and the U. S. has less
grounds for intervention now than in
1914-1when the Allies were actually fighting for democracy."
Speaking with the stacatto and rapidity of a Thompson gun. Doctor
Barnes assailed such journalists as
Dorothy Thompson, Walter
and Herbert Agar, and such
publications as the Nation and the
New Republic, for "reversing their
former stands on the issue of war or
peace" and becoming instead "hysterical and omniscient"
Doctor Barnes asserted that the
lessons learned by this country in
the iint World War shottM "be more

Lipp-man-

n,

than sufficient to show us the folly Roosevelt for his foreign policy, asof entering the second." He outlined serting there "would have been no
these "lessons" as:
war if the President had not butted
"(1) When the hysteria was clear- in from October, 1937, on up until
ed away, we found we had had as last fall" He added that the attigood legal reasons for fighting England as Germany.
"(2) We prolonged the war two
years unnecessarily, causing over
the total deaths and two-thi-rds
of the destruction to property.
"(3) We brought on a peace with
victory when a peace without victory was highly probable and would
have been the best thing for Europe.
"(4) We vindicated the Versailles
Treaty in its treatment of the German Republic, brought on Hitler,
eventually destroyed the Republic,
and brought on finally World War IL
"(5) The war cost us $50,000,000.-00- 0
in national wealth.
(6) We lost the New Freedom of
Wilson, and brought on the 'normal
cy' of the Twenties and the 'Ohio
Gang.'
"(7) We eventually were led to
the Crash of October, 1929."
In listing additional reasons this
nation should stay out of the war.
Doctor Barnes asserted. "England
and France were not so concerned
with saving the world for democracy in the 1930's, and it is not likely they are so concerned even now."
He expressed the ppinion that during this period the Entente powers
had been building up Hitler eventually to "take on and destroy Soviet
Russia, "which they really feared."
Ooctc-2ar::ei attacked President
one-ha-

lf

r

tudes of Ambassadors Bullitt and
Kennedy had been "unneutral" in
the extreme.
Expressing the opinion it is the
duty of this country to build arms
for defense and to extend its own
democratic principles even further
in the meantime, he outlined the fol
lowing armament program and foreign policy for the U. S. during the
next several years:
"(1) To plan only upon defending
the United States, Canada, and the
Panama Canal Zone. To attempt to
defend the entire hemisphere would
display our Army and Navy to the
point of destruction.
"(2) To build coast defenses, pursuit planes and fighters, and tanks
and a small but thoroughly mechanized army.
"(3) Forget Latin America, since it
is not interested in us and lost faith
in us when we permitted the Spanish Republic to be destroyed.
(4) Admit that it is too late now
to save the democratic nations in
Europe and recognize the blunt fact
that a new world has come about
Admit that we have got to live in
that new world and try to get along
with the totalitariana,"
"If we really want to stamp out
Fascism," Doctor Barnes said in conclusion, "we should have done it in
1935, when it was still possible. It's
