The events of the past week will furnish material for
future historians to ponder and i.iscuss as they review events
which determind~the fate of the United Nations Organiza-
tion. Years froin now students of international events will
analyze cfiticiufly the decisions and actions of the UN and
will judjre the role of the United States within this body
to which we have pledged our allegiance. These critics
will scrutinize harshly events which we scarcely notice

Karl.v in the Conjro crisis the UN received a request
for troops signed by Lumumba and Kasavubu, but when
the troops arrived Lumumba and his followers had split
from Kasavubu. The province of Katanga had seceded under
Tshombe. and Mobutu led still another faction seeking con-
trol of the Congo. The UN has given its support to the
Kasavubu government and recognized it as the legal govern-
ment of the Congo.
Even after being imprisoned in Katanga, Lumumba con-
tinued to have ,Treat influence over his followers, and after
his escape and death, they reacted qyite violently, causing
general chaos in all of the Congo. It is feared that a civil
war has erupted in this country which gives great possibi-
lities for communist strongholds there.
There are two reasons why the Russian influence may be
so strong in the African countries—they are the only major
European power which has never had a colonial empire in
Africa, and they have managed by propaganda to convince
the Africans that Russia is the one great power in which
the color bar has been wiped out.
The African feels often that the devil he doesn't know
may be better than the devil he knows only too well.
Disorganization in the Congo leaves a paved road to-
ward communist control. There is no one faction in control,
only many seeking power. The Soviets are giving unilateral
aid to the pro-communist faction while demanding that
UN Secretary General Dag Hammarskjold resign his posi-
tion and declaring that the UN remain uninvolved in the
These are the problems which the men in the United
Nations face today. The US and other responsible leaders
realize the forces working against the organization and know
that it is most necessary that UN troops enter the Congo,
establish order and provide for a new constitutional con-
vention to create a responsible government there.
If the communist bloc succeeds in negating current
proposals to act with a strong hand in the Congo, it could
very well mean the nemesis for the United Nations as an

"It's time to shine." TWC is not a bad place; in fact,
it is a pretty wonderful place. But anything can be improved
and shined up a little bit.
The Student Senate is about to put before the students
of this college a means of improving the college. It is up
'to the students whether they will accept it, reject it 01*
simply sit back uninterested.
The students who accept it or reject it are acting upon
what they believe is right. Rut those stuffed forms who
merely fold their hands and yawn and say, "Well, I don't
care; I'm not going to vote"—these are the ones who hurt
the campus and hold it back.
We are speaking about the Select Series that is being
voted upon in the Senate right now.
Last year, the administration tabled the amendment
to give TWC a Select Series because not even a fourth of
the TWC students cared even enough to vote in the elec-
tion. The administration had just reason to feel that stu-
dents would not support it.
This year, however, a great deal of planning has gone
into the proposed amendments. The committee gives six
definite reasons for wanting the amendments passed. They
.are: give the Student Senate a larger budget than could
be allocated by the Administration, thus helping eliminate
previously necessary "penny-pinching" that has handicapped
oach year's Senate; facilitate handling of the money by
the Senate; stimulate interest in campus activities by pro-
viding a better quality of activities; provide the school with
beneficial publicity through the Select Series; provide stu-
dents an opportunity for intellectual development and better
understanding of world affairs through the obtaining qf
well-known speakers and provide top-notch entertainment
for TWC students.
Right this minute—look on the front page of this
Rambler and read the proposed amendments. Start to think
about it. Weigh both sides. Ask your class Senator what he
thinks about it. And then, please, vote in the election. Make
your vote count, especially in this election. It will mean
more than you realize.

Attitudes To Students
"Working with young people
has kept me young," laughs a man
upon whose shoulders twelve years
of TW students ha^e unloaded
their troubles, practiced their be-
ginning French, and experimented
with their practical jokes.
* Ivan Joseph Thoin, better known
as "Frenchy," has blessed the
halls of Boaz student center as
janitor since he came to TWC in
1949. His favorite hobby, as he
explains it, is to study human na-
ture, and his best opportunity to
do so is during the busiest hours
of the sub as he quietly goes
about his routine tasks.
Some have intimated that Thoin
knows "just about everything that
goes on here at, Wesleyan."
Frenchy enjoys recalling the
changes which he has witnessed
during his reign, such as the new
library and dormitories, the erec-
tion of Poly Methodist church and
the demolition of old Mulkey Hall,
in which he lived for five years.
The biggest change, he recalls,
has been in the students them-
"It seems to me that kids were
more active a few years back,"
he puzzle's. "You might even say
they were wilder and meaner."
Having learned to speak French
in Canada, he has been tagged
"Frenchy" all of his life. Soon
after coming to TWC, an old
friend walked up and exclaimed,
"Hi, Frenchy!" A student over-
heard the greeting and the nick-
name caught on at TWC, too.
"Frenchy" was born in Man-
ville, Rhode Island, in 1898, but
moved to Ravelbourg, Saskatche-
wan, in Canada, with his parents.
"We started homesteading with
oxen and it took us three years
to break a half section of land,"
remembers Thoin. "We had to
haul grain ninety miles in the
winter to Moosejaw, Sas., and it

Frenchy left the homestead to
take his first real job — cutting
ice on the St. Lawrence river.
From there he traveled all the
way across Canada to the West
Coast working in logging camps,
farms, bridge gangs, harvests and

Worth, Frenchy answered, "Once
in a while as I stood on the side-
walks, someone would come by
and say 'Hi ya'll'—I decided peo-
ple here must be nice and friend-
ly, so I stayed."
After coming to Cow Town, at
•12 years of age, Thoin married for
the first time. He plans to retire
in 1963, when he and his wife,
Ioma, will move to San Diego.

Much comment was heard on
the campus following the feature
in I oft week's Rambler on our
missing mascot, "Willy the Ram."
Due to this, we have asked some
of the students the following

it would be better if we had
someone dressed up because a
real ram would be a lot of

real ram. It looks too fakey to
have a person in a ram's suit.
