Federalist Panel Hits U.S. Policy

NO WRITER ATTRIBUTED

Over 60 students from over 11 New England secondary schools attended the Regional Institute on World Federation and U.S. Foreign Policy, sponsored by the undergraduate chapter of the United World Federalists here this weekend.

The highlight of the Institute was a public panel discussion entitled "Five Foreign Policies for the United States." Craig Wylie '30, secretary of the Massachusetts Branch of the U.W.F., urged the U.S. to abandon its "sound, intelligent, but uninspiring" foreign policy and work for the creation of a World Federal Government. John B. Rae, associate professor of History at M.I.T. and member of the Atlantic Union Committee, countered with a plan for a federation of the democracies.

Pacifist Speaks

Cecil Hinshaw, noted pacifist, pointed out that the way to peace is not through a military build-up, but instead, through an extended "Point Four" program designed to get rid of the conditions which foster communism. Daniel H. Fenn, Jr. '44, director of the United Council on World Affairs and ex-assistant Freshman dean at Harvard, supported the shortrange policy of containment of Russia, but said that we must work for a stronger long-range plan.
