U. S. Disarmament Program Lambasted
Richmond. Va.. May 13 (ZP) The “wanton recklessness” with which America has dissipated her war-winning military strength is the most serious threat to our relations with Russia, a gathering of 80 Virginia bankers was told here today.
Dr. Joseph Stagg Lawrence, professional economist and vicepresident of the Empire Trust company in New York, was the featured speaker at a luncheon given by the Bank of Virginia.
His talk was made in conjunction with a conference on consumer credit delinquency, to which representatives of banks trtroughout the state were invited.
After tracing the course of events in Russo-American relations through history. Dr. ‘Lawrence expressed a feeling of optimism in the light of developments during the past four months.
Dr. Lawrence acknowledged that there “is no question that we do encircle Russia and constitute a hazard” to Soviet ambitions.
“But for an entirely different reason than that which they profess.” he added quickly.
The American way of life Is so infinitely superior to that of the Soviets, he declared, that hiding the facts from the Russian people is of primary concern to their piopaganda machine.
The purpose of Russian propaganda is to “place us in as bad a light as possible to the rest - , — . * of the world with charges that

More School Aid Urged For U. S.
Washington, May 13 (IP)—The bottleneck of American talent is our elementary and grammar schools, Mrs. Eugene Meyer told the Conference on Human Rights today.
Mrs. Meyer, wife of the owner of the Washington Post, addressed the conference being held at Howard university.
She said the best way to break this bottleneck is through the passage of the federal aid to education bill. If we can afford to spend billions abroad, we can spend three hundred millionts at home on education, she said.
“We have allowed our elementary education to run down to a point where we are endangering our whole intellectual and cultural life,” Mrs. Meyer said. “And we have done this at a moment when as never before this country is confronted by a demand for the greatest possible number of informed, educated and mature citizens.”
She quoted a dean of a leading medical school as saying that only one-eighth of the students at his school were “proper material” for doctors. She said an admiral who favors universal military training said we would not need UMT so urgently “if only our public schools did a more thorough educational job throughout the country.”
Equality of opportunity at college is a myth as long as grade schools in some areas give inadequate early training, she continued.
Education is a more vital need than the housing problem, she said adding:
“Such progress as communism has made among our people is largely due to the fact that its (propaganda emphasizes the unde-j niable weaknesses in our social 1 structure.”
One major weakness is the education offered by grade schools in ! some areas. And she contended that passage of the federal aid to education bill would do much to
Iranian Deputy Agrees With Wallace
Tehran. Iran, May 13, (ZP)— • The Iranian Majlis ‘parliament) was thrown into an uproar today and members walked out *hen a deputy charged:
“You are all on the United I States payroll!”
Ahmed Razavi. an engineer and deputy from Kerman, started the (row. He attributed to Henrv Wallace. U. S. third party presidential candidate, a statement saying Iranian internal affairs had been interfered with by former U. S. Ambassador George V. Allen
“I as a deputy confirm Wallace’s statement,” Razavi cried.
Deputies rose from their seats shouting denials. Razavi referred to a contract signed with the American military mission.
This agreement destroyed the Iranian army’s independence and instead of working for Iran’s interest, the American advisors are working for the United States.
Shouts of protest were laised by Razavi’s speech and in the uproar the speaker and deputies left the chamber.
