New, Art- Museum
There have been many comments about the new
Ao'Und Museum. Most have commented on the in
te.-iof bcayty.of the structure. Many, felt that the
il;rior was drab and dull and that the paintings
ithin (': srranzed in no logical order. Others still
were pleased with the. added classroom space.
The new addition is a wanted one. It fills a void
that haii befn on this campus for. a long time. It
may do ita part to bring the cultural levpl of the
campus upward, and perhaps will attract many.stu.
dents who would not ordinarily journey to Raleigh
to fe some ffrcat works of art.
This type of addition is necessary to breed a
higher intellectual level on this campus. It is hoped
that additions such as this will be a part of the
UNO. campus in the near future.

of the actions of my country. In
1956 and for years before, we en
couraged the peoples of-Eastern
Europe to . revolt against their
Communist rulers. Leaflets, es
pionage agents and the-- Voice of
America all told inhabitants of
this area to rise and seek their
rightful freedom. The people of
Hungary did this. We sent Red
Cress observers and called it a
day. In 1936, the people of Israel
joined with the French and the
British in an effort to rid the
Middle East, of Nasser: We re
versed our stand and joined hands
with Moscow backing the rotten
government of Egypt. In the
spring of 1958, the Vice President
of'the United States made a trip
to South America. While there, he
was spit upon by a group of stu
dents ir, Caracas. The President
of the United States immediately
dispatched 1500 Marines to Trini
dad to show these Laitn peasants
that the big brother to the North
was as big as ever. In July -of

of King Faisal. The President dis

Jordan in a show of force designed
to call a halt to Arab nationalism
and '.save western oil. One month
later, the U. S. recognized the
new Iraqi regime, withdrew many
troops ana made concesions to the
Arabs. Where is the logic?
Now in September of 1953, we
no longer turn our attentions to
Little Rock, or Caracas, or Beirut,
or Hungary. We think of two
worthless, insignificant, rotten, fil
thy " islands called Quemoy and
iMatsu. These two small bodies of
land are a stone's throw from the
mainland of Communist China.
They have very interesting points
in their history. Never before has
the islad of Formosa laid any
claims to them. Always in the
past they have belonged to the
mainland of China. Recently, be
fore the present crisis, the Amer
ican military echelon ruled that
the-stf two islands had no bearing
on the defense of Formosa an
could in all respects be writte
off of the books. Now, where do
we find ourselves? We find our
selves hell bent for a general Var
and on the road to final disaster.
We are being dictated to by a
sick old man who runs a corrupt
government. Chiang Kai-Shek is
forcing us into a position of de
