Lindsay Officer Organizes Canadian-Dutch Conference on International Affairs


Organized by Colonel T.H. Eberlee, principal of the Lindsay Collegiate Institute, who is on leave of absence from his Lindsay duties while serving as Deputy Director of Education, Canadian Army Overseas, a three-day conference on international affairs between Canadian soldiers and Dutch university students and public men has just concluded at Amsterdam.


Personal contacts and friendships between individuals of different States must be the basis of any world order of the future, Lt.-Gen. Guy G. Simonds, commander if Canadian forces in the Netherlands, said in opening the conference.


Theme of the recent conference was Same Problems of the Peace while subjects included: “Potsdam and the Future of Germany,” “Economic Bases of the Peace,” “Cooperation with the U.S.S.R.,” and “The Netherlands’ Present Position and Prospects.”


The conference was attended by 100 Canadian officers and other ranks, 30 professors and students from the University of Utrecht and the Rotterdam School of Economics.


Gen. Simonds said he felt that conferences such as this would cause the average citizen to cease regarding a foreign country as a patch of colour on a map. “Our outlooks can be influenced and humanized when we have friends abroad with whom to exchange ideas and views,” he concluded.
