Dr. Robinson speaks at 4:15 on “Ethical Implications of Atomic Energy’’ at this afternoon's philosophy i forum in Bowne hall, ! Outlining his lecture, the philosopher commented that the United States government “acknowledged ! the priority of mankind’s common good over national interests when • she offered the atomic development authority plan to the United Na-I tions."

In keeping with the seasonal theme of the • dance, bright green and yellow were j used for the color scheme. Spring Fantasy is being sponsored by the ASSC social committee in honor of the junior class which will hold its annual prom in conjunction with the all-U affair. Expecting a record crowd for the dance, the social committee has had further spread of communism, at the very time we are obligated to use atomic energy for the common good of all mankind,” he said. SPEAKER SUGGESTS The speaker suggested that the way out of this predicament is to convince all the peoples of the earth that the United States does not intend to use atomic weapons to enforce her way of life upon them, but she is interested only In their economic recovery. Dr. Robinson pointed out that the two moral purposes created by the discovery of atomic power — the utilization of atomic resources for national security and for universal welfare—are particularly incumbent upon the people of the United States. “We have this responsibility because our scientists discovered how to change uranium into plutonium, and our government developed atomic energy for military purposes,” he said. Election Registration Opens Next Monday Registration for the approaching student body elections is slated to begin on campus Mondty under the system recently approved by the student senate. Two large registration tables placed in front of Bovard auditorium and manned by 10 registration assistants will handle the bulk of student voters*-* throughout next week. Additional stations in front of the Annex and Engineering building are being set up to register students in those areas. SENATE PLANS According to the plan established last week by the senate, a second registration period, scheduled for May 5, 6, 7. and 10, will give those students failing to register during the current period an opportunity to do so before elections take place around May 13. “The entire purpose of the increased number of registration Photo by Trojan Camera Exchange PI PHI Nick Nicholson appears to have been carried away by the persuasive sales tactics of this “No Love Atoll" ticket taker, who posed as Ngaya, the Micronesian “woman" in order to gain access to various sorority houses Friday night, causing furor but selling few tickets. No Love' Gears for Stretch Bovard auditorium was bustling with activity all day Saturday as the cast and directors of the varsity show swung into the home stretch in rehearsing, preparatory to the show’s premiere Thursday night. As rehearsals continued, a story was flashed down from 28th street, telling of another foray on sorority houses by a figure in a King Kong suit, claiming to be “Ngaya, the -——---—--k Micronesian woman.” Whatever its ly, confused the cyclist’s leg the tires of his machine and 1850 bids printed, with more avail- him energetically enough able if the demand exoeeds that s^in. number.

Today's Headlines ky United liners Return to Work | WASHINGTON, Apr. 12—John L. Lewis won a pension plan his striking soft coal miners today and ordered them back work at once. But two hours later he was directed to stand in federal court Wednesday for failing to end the 29-day ikout sooner. logota Fighting Flares Again [BOGOTA. Apr. 12—New battles between troops and snipers crowds fleeing from the ruined streets of downtown jgota today. | Heavy firing broke out soon after the government an-mnced that the Pan-American conference would be con-lued “so that communism cannot triumph” over the na->ns of the western hemisphere. Rev. Owen M. Greer said yesterday in the panorama of religions lecture. held at 3:15 in Bowne hall. “Schweitzer never accepted an explanation of evil but felt that if everyone did a little to remedy sin in the world, it would soon disappear,” the speaker said. The Rev. Greer described how Schweitzer was great in the breadth of his interests. STUDIES MEDICINE “Already a concert organist, and an authority on architecture, he studied medicine at the age of 31 so he could be a missionary and better aid the suffering. “Schweitzer wa* always saddened by misery and felt that whoever was spared personal pain himself, must feel called to help in the diminishing of pain in others,” the speaker continued. He related how Schweitzer’s friends tried to dissuade him from becoming a missionary, fearing that his talents as a musician and an academician would be lost to the world if he left civilization. FAME GROWS “Far from burying himself in the wilderness of Africa. Schweitzer’s Anderson Traces Middle East Woes Contemporary international relations in the Middle East is the basis for Dr. Totten J. Anderson’s talk tomorrow in the art and lecture room of the University library at 3:15. “For a great many years the problem of power politics in the Middle East has been present. However, since the frac- tionalization of the Ottoman following World pire immediately War I, it has become critical,” asserted Dr. Anderson, associate professor of political science . VACUUM CREATED The attainment of autonomy or semi-autonomy by many of the Middle Eastern states which had formerly been ruled by the sultan of Turkey created a power vacuum in this ,area, the Syrian-born professor said. . “It has been the history of contemporary international relations that such a vacuum inevitably attracts the prosecution of vital interests by major world powers in such an area,” he said. GEOLOGISTS ESTIMATE Important assets are there to be exploited, Dr. Anderson said. Geologists have estimated that Iran, and Iraq, and Kuwait, as well as Saudi Arabia, have the largest concentration of proved oil deposits in the world, not excepting those available in the United States, he said. “Anglo-American sea-air power now occupies an extremely important strategic position in the Middle East. The professor defined the Middle East as those countries which are members of the Arab league and those bordering the eastern Mediterranean, including Greece and Italy. Summer Forms • Arrive, Vanish Summer Session bulletins were available for a short time yesterday, but the initial supply was exhausted before 3 p.m. Information office personnel said that 3750 copies had been placed on the counter last Friday.

Six thousand bulletins were placed in the mail yesterday. identity, the pseudo-monster turned on the .charm and personality full blast, in order to stimulate interest in the sale of tickets for “No Love Atoll.” The accompanying photo illustrates the synthetic ape’s sales tactics, as practiced on sophomore Nick Nicholson, PiPhi. As the show’s promotion department went about the business of convincing people they should buy tickets, the hardworking cast carried on in Bovard, wrestling with lines and music and otherwise knocking scenes into shape for opening night. Among those on stage, giving out with histronics, were Jim Sargent, Marv Kaplan, Hal Lowe, Rory Guy, Jay Perrin, Bob Baker, and Neile Robinson. Sargent, who recently starred in the SC production of “Years Ago,” appears in the varsity show as a hard-bitten but slightly zany naval captain, who has frequent misunderstandings with the enormous native chief, played by Perrin. The latter speaks a number of lines throughout the show, each consisting of one word, “ugh.” Baker and Robinson, a- "• •r :-and Gregory, spend a lar^ V>a-» of their time knit*;~~ argyles for the captain.

Rauel Llamus, Bob Moore, and George Woolery, have been working hard in setting up the depot,” Evan* said. “In the future,” he continued, “all fraternities, sororities, and other organizations should bring the books they collect directly to the depot, where they will be sorted, counted, and credited to the organization’s bid for tbe trophy. Each contributing group will get a receipt for their books. “We feel that the organizations can rest assured that a correct tabulation is being made by the committee in awarding the trophy and plaque,” Evans explained.
