A a a plug frankly but credit has been Seldom More deserved. These Days we need a Calm voiced and lbs is giving it. It May be the a Star s but we re indifferent to that. Their biggest claim to Fame is Murrow and company and if you Don t believe us listen for yourself. Yak Ivity by Robert Payton we could safely predict we think that if you listened in on some of the conversations among some of the Young men of draft age you would t hear the word a a infantry mentioned. If it were mentioned it would be spoken in either a fearful or contemptuous voice for the infantry is not held to be a fit place for Man or beast. The infantry it seems is widely regarded As a fit place Only for Lun Heads and Yoke not shrewd enough to find a better place or for Guys who waited too Long to put their bid in for a More comfortable situation. Nobody wants to get in the infantry. Nobody wants to enlist in the infantry nobody wants to be drafted into it. Or so it seems. When we mention to some of the Young men that being in the infantry would be the right thing for them they Eye us Queerly and laugh assuming we must have been kidding. A of the Best from All cultures by a special United nations correspondent Paris the Road toward the Exchange of ideas has always been a Rocky one. The Bible tells us of one of the major blocks in that Highway How men tried to build a Tower to the sky but failed when the multiplication of languages made it impossible. For them to understand each other. Ever since the Tower of Babel however or possibly even before men have tried to find an answer to that pressing problem. Ever since Man first began to organize into societies he has been curious about his neighbors about what they were doing and thinking. Consequently the first translations must have followed swiftly after the first books were written to keep on record for posterity some 4 of the most significant thinking of men. Often the desire to make religious converts was As it still is a powerful stimulant for translation. But in All times translations were made because of the need to understand others with whom Contact had been established. This need for Exchange whether for religious or commercial reasons is fundamental in our civilization. Translation has a double effect and value. It brings with it an enrichment an increase of self discovery with All its possibilities of change and Progress. At the same time it compels an awareness of the source of this enrichment. It ,c9�lir�gemt. And Clemo understanding of what another people Are More insight into the similarity of people As Well As into their differences. It is or can be a powerful agent for International understanding. Now translation has been Ever since printing began mainly a commercial proposition which depends on All the trends of Commerce. Where this is the Case you do not get balance in the selection of writings for translation. Often Many great productions of the human mind remain ignored. This is particularly True if they have been written in Small countries whose languages Are not universally known. The same thing happens if they come to the West from some other cultural zone let us say Asia a although it is precisely Between such divergent cultures that communication and understanding Are most needed. Lack of spontaneous widespread interest accounts for the Lack of translations or for the fact that if they Are produced they remain for the most part an affair of the specialist available Only in limited or costly editions. It is As if certain regions of the Earth populated by hundreds of millions of human beings had not produced writing of simple Universal human interest. Again in these Sagie Small countries of the of nth in these sane vast regions of the East Lack of sufficient literary Market Lack of publishing Enterprise mean that Many languages and could come from translations. These Are some of the reasons Why the United nations thought it necessary to do something about this situation. The United nations educational scientific and cultural organization Unes Coas the . Specialized Agency Best fitted to act was entrusted with the task. One thing must be made Clear where translations Are produced normally contributions by Enesco Are not contemplated. But where there is inequality of cultural Exchange where there is Inadequacy of Means Only an International organization concerned with the free flow and interchange of culture and information can Hope to bring about the necessary translation movement. Enesco s first Steps in that direction affect the Arab speaking world As Well As latin America. The task of the Middle East is to select out of the thousands of available books a few that will bring real cultural and inter cultural benefits. Such a selection must of course include that handbook of Clear thinking Descartes discourse on method As Well As the revelation of Western spirituality contained in Dante s divine comedy and that commentary on Western Man Cervantes Don Quixote. The end of this year or the beginning of 1951, will see the Start of the return flow Enesco sponsored translations from the arabic philosopher Avicenna As Well As from the works of a1 Hazall and Quot other a ictus in items of the Eastern world. Place to search after glory. Others make vague remarks about the higher pay for flying the better quarters available on aircraft carriers cruisers and the like and still others mumble about their a experience a which supposedly qualifies them for More significant tasks. The infantry has never been much of a place of glory especially since Hollywood has failed to accept it As part of the scheme of things. The infantry is composed of men who Arentt pretty who Don t have a mysterious jargon and who Don t describe the simple motion of taking a drink with extended arms and dipping and buzzing and rat to Tat Tats. The infantry is composed of men who Haven to time for passionate love affairs and who done to dress nearly As Well As do officers of the Fleet. The infantry has a habit of degrading its speech. With unprintable language of 4 wearing dirty uniforms of eating out in the cold and sleeping in holes in the ground. The infantry also has a Way it is said of winding up kaput face Down unglamorous by and a interestingly dead. Iowa cancer society gives $40,450 to Sui Aid totals $145,000 in 3 years but we Aren t kidding. We a Are among the few who still hold that the infantry is the most a Hal part of our whole Mili-5tary set up and that As such it should be made up of the Best a my we have. Bat nobody wants it and for some of the most disconcerting mesons. Some of the smart Young men feel that the infantry is no a them since the casualty h a bit higher than other and others feel that the Fust simply in t the All that is based on some truth much fiction and Little recognition of the Basic fact that a War involves men shooting other men and that somebody has to do the shooting. It could be that too few people realize there is a certain amount of nobility and Honor in being in the Branch of service that More than any other gets right Down to what s going on. It could be that people Are overlooking the fact that there is a certain amount of self respect awaiting those who a a Yak Talvity Page 4�? Uncle Jim says. A a. Eggs and new year s resolutions must be handled with extreme Mason City a eight Grants totalling $40,450, by the Iowa division of the american cancer society will enable the state University of Iowa to continue and expand its research War against cancer.

J. R. Dewey Schaller president of the Iowa division. Doctor Dewey pointed out that these funds were in addition to the $297,000, including $109,000 in 1950. Given the past three years to the acs National office to be spent for other cancer research work. Continuing doctor Dewey stated that it has been this initial a venture capital Given Sui that is now paying off by attracting additional research capital into the development of promising cancer projects in Iowa City.

Or in opinionated Public Vas one local thinker put it the Best thing Stalin could do to help his cause would be to come Over Here and help us a build automobiles. Our cars Are the Best weapons Joe has. Much talk is always Given to the agonized and Fussle witted who reach that condition through excessive indulgence in alcohol but no one Ever seems to pay much attention to the equally agonized and Fussle witted whose cause of pain is overeating. It May be a duller Way to suffer but it can be just As painful the hot breath is on the necks of draft age students we hear and what reservists Are still with us Are growing More uncomfortable by the Day. Presently non dra table veterans we be talked to Are even getting nervous. Out of a sense of fair play and with an Eye on the facts of the Case let s not put Marne for the Library s financial status where it does no to belong. If Joe Stalin is going to help us build automobiles Why Don t we teach the russians Canasta it is to be hoped that the nations defense efforts go along a bit More smoothly and much More quickly that the maj of our Community a projects. The War movies of we ii being revived May not be very Good but apparently Hollywood thinks do until some More up to Date ones can be turned out. The Only trouble Here is that by the time the new ones get to Burlington they la be As outdated As those showing up now. The Book worm a dictionary of vocal themes by Barlow and Morgens Tern Crown $5. We Aren t sure of the psychological explanation of the mental condition in which people find themselves when they Are unable to identify a piece of music but we re reasonably certain that the condition is one of furious frustration and irritation. Musical themes a and the two volumes should go far toward eliminating the source of much of the Small scale but deadly uncertainty of this world. A person struggling with a word or two of the first line of a vaguely remembered song can find Here the full title As simply and easily As can the person in search of the words of a piece of music the theme of which his overburdened mind has managed to retain. In what seems to be half a dozen directions and approaches the a a compilers have included the words and music of More than eight thousand vocal themes enough at least to narrow the scope of ones forgetfulness. The Book is limited by necessity to themes which have been recorded in this country and in Europe and As a result fails to include a number of themes which might be familiar to serious students of music which we Arent by the Way since we were unable to think of any other than current and Short lived pieces that the authors overlooked. There is an alphabetical a notation Index that is a Brilliant answer to the problem of knowing Only the musical outline of a vocal theme and nothing else about it a a common and unavoidable condition. For other than reference purposes the Book is Ideal for anyone who finds Delight in re discovering the words and music of songs almost forgotten. The most helpless two fingered Homegrown pianist will find considerable real pleasure Here too but the person finding the Isaac Tom will apr
