Dr. Berkes said. The American film told the story of the UN from World War II emphasizing thf continued American desire for peace and the mounting Russian opposition and obstruction in the UN. The film had none of the blaring American jazz shown in the Russian film (which was made up of old American newsreel clips) but was done on a higher level tracing the history of the allied fighting success.

The Russians. on the other hand, had approached the Siamese by voicing a desire to study and learn Ironi ihe culture of the country, forcing an American retreat from its position of offering all the answers. Dr. Berkes divided American oounter-propaganda media into three types, radio, press and publications, and films. He said that the Voice of America is heard daily in 46 languages by some 300 million people. It is concentrating most strongly on Eastern very effective in speaking to East Germans. The station programs report on Communist actions, western versions of German history to be taught in the Communist schools, and even humor bits about the “200 per cent Communist.” In West Europe the VOA buys time on local networks tor direct presentation to the people rather than depending upon short wave broadcasts. Dr. Berkes said that one of the most ellective programs was Mrs. Eieanor Roosevelt’s Sunday night broadcasts to the French people over a French netwrork. Mrs. Roosevelt, speaking in French and in an informal lashion, did much to cement U.S.-French friendship among the French people. to 500 films <ach. Many of the films are educational in nature while some are direct counter-propaganda. Other programs underway include the town affiliation idea in which an American town will adopt as town in another country and establish strong bonds of friendship between the two.

Dr. Berkes concluded by reminding the audience that propaganda is no substitute for policy. He said the role of propaganda is sometimes overemphasized.
