War Aims Graduall As World Watches , None o£ the warding nations of Hu- rope has yet drawn up n full-dross list of its war aims. J3ut such declwvaUons arc cvidcnfly in the milking. Wlicn they appear they will undoubtedly eon- tain feature's aimed at attracting neutral and world opinion to Hie causes they represent. All governments 'today arc responsive enough to public opinion, even the most dictatorial of them, to make it desirable thai not only their, own people, but other peoples shall know what they are fighting about, .The American Declaration of Independence began with . • the proposition that "a decent respect to (he opinions of mankind requires that. they should declare (he causes which impel them to Hie separation." So the countries at, war will soon be getting around to formal sUtQiucnls of what kind of a settlement each proposes to make if it wins. For obviously, the only clumcc either side has to attract neutral support is (lie promise of a 'sort of world readjustment that will make less likely the -repetition • of the catastrophe of 10iS9. Jlany thoughtful men in the warring countries have already- bent (heir attention to this problem. .Just as the outbreak of the present Kuropuun war found all countries better prepared for it llian in 1!) 14, HO the coming of peace, which must follow sometime, should find the peacemakers better prepared with plans -"for a promising net. tlenienC Dr. John Tuxluy, the eminent, IJril- ish biologist and writer, for example, • has besn applying • his mind to' the problem, not unconscious of the possible effect of amionnral war aims on neutrals. "Our statement," he writes, "must provide a pilitiorm on which ueu- ' tral countries, too, can take their 1 , •stand, with a view to playing an" active part in the eventual settlement." Thus the influence of neutrals is shown to be powerful in tlie \viir. World opinion is important even in these days of force. President Wilson was keenly ( ous of this power of neutrals early days of the World War of his actions were guided by termination to do nothing which would prejudice : the position of the United Stales as a possible mediator. Many of the policies of the warring powers then, as now, were carefully studied with a view to ''whether or not they would attract neutral opinion to their cause. So men of Huxley's caliber today are consei- in the . Many bis de- clear on this: the only war settlement that can possibly attract neutral sttp- povl, and the only war aims that can possibly draw neutral' sympathy, are such as give promise of adjusting basic problems of trade, raw materials, colonies, refugees, peaceful settlement of future disputes, and other basic changes in the international order in such a way as to give definite hope of a better future. TUESDAY, OCTOBER 24, 1989 Housing Again SO THEY SAY SIDE GLANCES by Cafbrsrth AUy.-Gcu. Fnuik Murphy has ag»m culled iilteniion lo (ho housing problem in Urn cinmlry. AI a time whfin building costs arc- high, any proposals to alleviate • poor housing among iow- iucomo groups aro worthy of appraisal. . Murphy suggests that the inability of the building industry to meet the 1 needs of low-income groups may be partly attributed to the existence ol' "bidding rings" among less scrupulous contractors and obstruction tactics oi' a few union leaders. If either charge- is true, certainly it i.s lime for action. "H goes without saying," (he attorney-general explains, "that this M not intended either as an attack on tlie unions' basic right of collective bargaining or on business." Most union leaders, certainly, do not care lo impede legitimate construction in any way. Neither do most contractors, countenance unlawful collusioji. Both groups will want to hear more of this investigation. Both will insist on prompt prosecution if the charges arc proven true. Bruial Pacts Cold and hard, like chemical analyses, are the war corniminiiiucs issued by belligerents on activity • along the Western Front. .From French communique, No. 92:' "There were, numerous patrols during the day, on both sides, more esiJutially in the region 'east of the Moselle.'

CHAPTER XII went ou Hie road to play x Cornell tliat week and once again tile slay-at-homcs ganged up on Hie radio. "This ought lo be five straight," said Elaine, rubbing her hands in anticipation. ".We'll murder 'em." "Don't get so bloodlliirsly," Carol ehided. "It's not lady-like." "Well, we will, anyway." But tilings didn't appear to be breaking right for Tech that day. The Tech line was being played oft their feet. Time and again the Cornell backs ripped oft the • lackles and banged over center for huge chunks of yardage. Twice tlie Big Rc-d backs battered their way within tiia Tech 20-yard lino. The first time Tech recovered a fumble lo stop the drive. The second time Cornell lost the ball on downs by inches on Hie 10. A long pass tool; Cornell deep In.Tech territory again just u lew minutes later, and this time the announcer'.-; voice grew more vibrant with (he promise of a touchdown which seemingly couldn't be denied.

It's a touch- That was the spark that set them off. Tech Began to click right after that and once again they were the well-oiled machine of the past few weeks. The game ended 20-0. The Tech line, backed up by a vicious Dan Webber, smothered everything Cornell tried. Tech was headed for another score when the gun went off. though prospects for an undefeated season grew every day, football was a side issue tlie following week. Nothing else mattered when the campus elected its homecoming queen. Running against Kay Granger were Milliccnl Kennedy, the Scarab Combine candidate, ;i lovely Phi - Delia named Corinne Chambers,- and Frances Booth, a statuesque Independent. Joan couldn't remember when she had had so much fun. Whenever there was something to be done she \vns there. Keith let her use his car. Between Monday and Thursday, which was election day, Joan missed lunch twice. A funny thought came to her as she stood on the bumper of the car and tacked a picture of Kay Granger to. a post in front of a popular eating place. It was the first time in her life that she had ever had a hammer in her hand. Actually. It made her feel so capable, so competent. The hammer itself felt impressive. Nice tool, a hammer. She laughed to herself. She wondered jvhat'Daif Webber would think if he could sec her then. "Slow down," Kay joshed thai) night. "We don't want to cele-' brate a coronation and send you to ; Ihe hospital in the same day." : Joan smiled. "Take it easy I nothing. I'm having fun. ThinV L maybe I'll enter politics seriously I when I get out of this brain fac"- : \ lory." And (lion she was on' lo thc| Gamma house with Carol for the | final Combine meeting.
