Catlin made the statement in delivering the second 1957 Weil Lectures at 8:30 p.m. in Carroll Hall. His topic was "Can We Co Exist with Colonialism. Imperial ism, Racialism and Sovietism?" Segregation has been called by Bishop Jennard of Louisiana as a "unAmerican. unCatholic and un ChriF.tiio," and Catlin declared he believes that position is the correct one. Comparing the struggle for in dependence in South Africa with struggles for fr?edom and democ racy in other nations, Catlin said it is true imperialism called the tune in many places in Africa. But he added "racism was no bocks, the most prominent of less a test for our civilization." which is "The Science and Meth The west and the free world ods of Politics." f t - H- 1 William Lee Eallenger (right) " . . . the big experiment Theory Said Disproved The Phvsics Dept.

Palmatier, chairman of the Physics Dept., indicated in an interview yesterday that the Dept. had conclusively disproved Ballenger's theory. "He (Ballenger) violated two major laws of physics," Dr. Pal matier pointed out. "There were (1) the Conservation of Energy and (2) the Conservation of Ang ular Momentum." "Mr. Ballenger claimed as a prediction of his theory that two spherical magnets, constructed so hat the center of each was a cn.ith nnle and the surface of each a north pole, would rotate around one another if brought into close contact.

"No headway can be made against Soviet propaganda in South Africa unless all species of ; the Nazi race theory which dis- j figures South Africa can be dis- j carded and all people are, made to feel that their contributions are a part of a common enterprise of freedom." Catlin will speak tonight ,on ' The C:mmonwealth of Free Na t'ons and Its L?aders." The final lecture will be given at 8:30 p.m. ! in Carroll Hall. An honor graduate of Oxford, Catlin won a fellowship to Corn ell University in 1923-24 and re- l mained there on the faculty until 1935. i He has written a number of .. - suggested he construction of an experiment utilizing a flat, circu- lar. cylindrical magnet to prove or disprove Ballenger's theory.

The purpose has been de fined by President Eisenhower as being to encourage a "trend" to independence in eastern Europe. The Chief of the Polish Eco nomic Mission here, Henryk Kot licki, said that an American offer had been made and that "we shall continue negotiations so we can J come to an agreement." Kotlicki would not disclose the size of pro- posed aid program, which would consist of credits for farm and mine machinery and provision for surplus farm commodities.

(AP) Money literally gushed out of a three - block - long, rain - swollen storm sewer Friday and hundreds Qf persons Uned tne streets snatch ing up the soggy currency. Police Chief Murell Waddle said ; he could offer no explanation, and ! estimated upwards of $1,000 had been picked up. The most popular theory offered by townspeople was that heavy rains which had fallen since the first of the week flush ed out money that had been hid den away in the sewer. Postal Services WASHINGTON (AP) The House Appropriations Committee voted Friday to notify Postmaster General Summerfield he can count Lon at least 17 million dollars more to maintain full postal services through June 30. Summerfield wants 47 million. He had threatened to curtain some services drastically beginning to day unless the full amount was forthcoming from Congress. The House committee agreed yesterday to consider next Friday the extra 30 million dollars the Post Office Department says it has to have this year. But Chairman Cannon (D-Mo.) of the Appropriations Committee accused Summerfield of pulling "an unadultered bluff." "They'll deliver the mail," he told the House in a speech from the floor.
