Yalta and Potsdam were characterized as "two monumental ineptitudes" of international diplomacy last night by De-Witt C. Poole, visiting lecturer in Government, as the Harvard Forum opened its program for the term in Harvard 6 with a discussion of the topic: "What kind of peace of Germany?"
Eventual federation of Europe, with the disappearance of Germany as a national unit, was the goal set by Dr. Poole for our foreign policy. Disagrecing strongly with this approach were Sidney B. Fay '96, professor of History, emeritus, and Sigmund Neumann, visiting lecturer in Government, who completed the panel. Fay called for the strengthening of Germany economically and spiritually, while Neumann emphasized "Big Two" cooperation as the underlying problem.
An open question period ended the forum.
