Wallbank, professor of Jilstory at USC. .',' ; Fact flew after fact as tl I (peaker delved briefly Into U. . foreign policies and Mid-En ·rises, drawing on personal o Krvatlons made while tcachln '. «t the University of Egypt 1951-32, * and several .· montl · spent recently traveling aroun the world through, the ample of the Rockefeller Foundatlo ; In a verbal poke at VS. to »lgn aid. Dr. Wallbank said cm {hatlcally that "the creates ; amount of U.S. aid must liven to tho countries that ar friendly to ,us. We will Impov crlsh ourselves If Wo try to he · everybody, and If we help every body, we help nobody. Wester Europe should como first."

"US. policy has done a complete circle." ho continued "First we supported lintel 100 per cent, now we are apparently completely pro-Arab." Claiming that recent ' U.S. Hands, on Suez Canal problems have "put us In the Impossible position of supporting a dictator (Nasser) who will cause more trouble," the professor gave few encouraging notes. "The Arabs don't like us for pushing Israel down their throats, but they're beginning to believe .that we will fight imperialism and communism. And King Saud of Saudi Arabia, although a medelval feudal patriarch, Is · strong communism opponent." , -. -.

But most of the ritual that Is cen In various C h r i s t i a n hurches was not even men- loncd by Jesus. Jesus stuck to undamcntals.

It is usually women who seal op the edges of grapefruit and write etiquette books nnd make much of folderol, and thus stress Itual, Much of the excessive Itual of churches Is thus prob- bly due to feminine Influence.
