Opposing Views Of Free World, Russia Outlined Opposing views held by Russia and the free world were outlined for members of the Reno Rotary Club Monday by Dr. Harry M. Chase, assistant professor of history and political science at the University of Nevada. Russia believes this is a world of constant struggle, while the free world views the globe as a place where all nations can live in harmony, Dr. Chase said. All of which is naturally confusing to the world spectator: Russia, said Dr. Chase, has a totally different ievv of the world in which we live from that of America, and thus her actions, normal to the USSR, are confus ing to the West. I Russia's basic concept of gov-jernment, he said, is based on the Marxian theory of constant struggle and the Darwinian theory of the survival of the fittest. "Struggle" Dr. Chase emphasized does not necessarily mean war. Various other kinds of struggle include economic warfare, and psychological warfare. Economic warfare, he said, may take the form of . a trade war. In psychological warfare the Russians, at the proper time, exert pressure against their adversaries. When the pressure gets too strong, and a shooting war may be imminent, it is relaxed then applied again. Eventually the enemy ; becomes weak and succumbs. ! Dr. Chase said this nation must face up to the Soviet threat in more than a military way. If we do not, he concluded, we will soon be in great danger. The speaker was introduced by Garold Holstine, chairman of the day and dean of tffe college of education at the university.
