WEDNESDAY, JULY 22, 1959 asr i ensions Move Would Require Red China UN Seat A re-evaluation of American foreign policies especial ly the blocking of Red China from United Nations mem besrhip was called for by Brig. Gen. Hugh B. Hester, U. S. Army (ret.) in an address Monday night. "A third world war is almost inevitable in the Far East unless tensions are reduced soon," Gen. Hester said. UN mediation is the "only possible way to break the present impasse, and even tnis is unlikely to succeed unless and un til Red China is admitted to the . . , .

Since 1951 he has been studying advanced international relations at the University of Pennsylvania, while writing ex tensively and lecturing in this field. Speaking under YMCA-YWCA sponsorship, Gen. Hester present- ed "A Program for Survival." "For the first time in history man has the power to destroy the human specie." he said. "Our survival and avoidance of a third world war depends on the estab lishment of world law, a world court to interpret those laws and a peace force to apply those in terpretations."

The Berlin crisis is danger ous," he said "but the real prob lem is German unification and it should be faced up to before it explodes into war. But Ger many cannot be unified inside any great power alliance sys tem." Turning to Middle Eastern prob lems, he said that it is "complete ly irrational to expect the Arabs and Israeli to settle their disputes sn king as each can day off one great power against the other in hfster.

Don't drown your troubles, but join the hub-hub scrambling around in the office of the UNC News. (Mainly the hub-hub is caused by the rattling sound the few staffers now around make a they rattle in that room on second Hoot.
