German military contingents in a

Acheson is understood to have
described the proposition as rev
olutionary in American foreign
policy. It also calls for a supreme
effort by all 11 other Atlantic
treaty nations to raise and equip
their own military contingents for
the prospective new international
While Acheson introduced the
new proposition, in Washington
congress approved 47 to 21 a spe
cial new law permitting Gen

stormy republican protests.
Nebraskans' Votes
Rep. O'Sullivan of Nebraska
voted to permit General Marshall
to accept the post; Representatives
Curtis. Stefan and Miller and
Senators Wherry and Butler voted
against the proposal.
Many World War II posts and
camps that have been in moth
balls for several years will again
see live action.
According to Army Secretary
Frank C. Pace Jr., the defense
department "very definitely" plans
to reactivate many pi these camps
and posts.
Some camps that have been de
clared surplus and sold would also
be "recaptured."
When the first news of the
American landing at Inchon

tings college student.

representation in Moscow now
totals 98 persons 12 more than
the Soviet government has in
Fighting over the Korean war
is not confined to Korean borders.
The republican national chairman
said Friday that the GOP can win
the Nov. 7 election on this war
issue even if the war ends in a

MEETING THE CHANCELLOR These four coeds were among

AUF Pushes
Drive For
$5000 Goal
Nearly one-fifth of the goal
has been reached in the All Uni
versity fund's campaign for so
licitations. Jo Lisher, AUF director, stated
that since campus solicitations
began last spring, a total of $750
has been collected. The goal for
the 1950-51 drive is $5,000.
Students have made their con
tributions to the University char
ity group, at booths located at
different campus points.
Fnr npw ctnHpntc anH fr:h-
man of the University who are
not acquainted with AUF, Lisher
wished to remind them that the
organization is the only one of
its kind on campus. It was or
ganized to protect students from
constant solicitation by all of the
important University-recognized
welfare agencies, such as Com
munity Chest, World Student
Service fund, Red Cross, Infan
tile Paralysis fund and others
which aid the needy.
A new method of collection is
being tried out this year. It is
part of a new system set up last
spring to insure a more effective
drive this yea.-. This means that
students may simply pledge a
certain amount to AUF now or
any time between now and the
end of the year. The amount
pledged will not be due until
Feb. 25, 1951.
Miss Lisher urged all Univer
sity students to remember that
AUF represents many worth
while charity and public aid or
ganizations and that their one
donation this year will make up
for five or six contributions
which they would otherwise
make during the year.
Debate Squad
Meeting Set
For Thursday
Activities of the University de
bate squad will begin Thursday
with a meeting of all those in
terested in intercollegiate debate
this school year.
The meeting will be Thursday
at 7:15 p.m., Room 203 of the
Temple. All University students,
regardless of previous experience,
who are interested in participat
ing in debate activities, are in?
vited to attend, according to
Donald Olson, director of Uni
versity debate.
Question for debate is: Re
solved: That non-communistic
countries form a new interna
tional organization.
About ten veterans from last
year's squad will return this
year. Because of the small num
ber of returning debaters, said
Olson, there will be a lot of op
portunity for new squad mem
bers to participate in actual in
tercollegiate conferences.
Speaking about the question,
Olson said that it "certainly
ought to be a live one." "It was
made pertinent especially," he
continued, "by Herbert Hoover's
speech some time ago advocating
its organization. Many people
immediately expressed opposition
against it."
First actual public debating of
the year will be at the University
of Kansas at Lawrence, Oct. 14,
when Doris Carlson and Joan
Krueger, sophomore debaters,
participate in an exhibition de
bate before Kansas state high
school students attending the
conference at that university.
Olson will also speak at the
Kansas Debate '
Carlson and Krueger will up
hold the atfirmative side of the
national high school debate ques
tion which is: Resolved: That the
American people reject the wel
fare state.
Coaching debate this year will
be Olson and Bruce Kendall.
Following the meeting Thursday,
discussions will begin of the col-
lege question
ln order to give
I debaters background information.

According to Sclleck, in answer
to several complaints about the
delay in issuing additional ID
cards, the cards were not avail
able to students previous to now

ticket campaign.
Selleck said the action was
followed this year and last in
view of the circumstances two
years ago when the office is
sued cards upon demand. Stu
dents used the extra cards merely
to purchase additional football
As a result the athletic de
partment did not have enough
season tickets for students and
many were forced to sit on the

continued, "strongly protested
against the situation."
fhe athletic department had
laid aside only enough tickets
for the number of students en
rolled in the University and con
sequently ran short whui so
many students presented ID cards
for tickets.
The present procedure, Sel
leck said, is followed to protect

Add and Drop
: t
j li r f"lHlfllf'C
To Continue
Headquarters for add and drop
procedure and late registration
procedure will continue to be in
the Military and Naval Science
However, there will be a slight
change in the add and drop pat
tern, according to Dr. F. W. Hoo
ver, assistant registrar.
Students who did not complete
their add and drop by last Sat
urday noon are required to ob
tain the signatures of- course in
structors as well as those of their
advisors and deans.
Hoover stressed that the in
structors consent must be ob
tained before any change is made.
This, briefly, is the system each
!student should follow in dropping
jana aaaing:
1. See his advisor and have any
changes approved by him.
2. Secure the consent of his in
structors. 3. Obtain the aproval of the
dean of his college.
4. Visit the Military Science
building w"ith the properly signed
worksheet to re-register for
classes. ,
5. Pay add and drop fees at
the Administration building.
Students are asked to note the
last step particularly. Last week
all fees were paid at the Physical
Education building. This week
all fees including those for late
registration will be paid at the
Administration building.
Hoover emphasized that stu
dents who merely wish to change
a class section do not need to go
through the add and drop pro
cedure. The class section need
only be approved by the head of
the department.

First Tryouts
For 'Antigone'
Start Sept. 20
Tryouts for "Antigone," re
cent Broadway production, will
begin Wednesday. Dean Graunke,
director of the first production
of the University Theatr, said
that tryouts will be held Wed
nesday, 3 to 5 p.m. and 7-9 p.m.,
and continue to Thursday, 7 to
9 p.m. in Room 201, Temple.
The story is based on the
Greek myth of Antigone, a Greek
maiden, and Edopus, her father.
As a child Edopus was abandoned
on a mountain to die because the
gods thought that he would harm
many people if allowed to grow
up and freely roam the earth. He
escapes however and grows to
manhood only to return and kill
his father.
Marries Mother
Edopus marries his mother not
knowing she is his real mother.
She bears him two sons, Eteocles
and Polynices, and two
daughters, Antigone and Isnene.
After the death of Edopus, his
two sons were to take over the
rule of the property, each rul-"
ing every other year. When
Eteocles became the ruler he did
not want to give it up; the
brothers declared war on each
other and both were killed in the
battle. Creon, Edopus' brother and
new regent of Thebes orders that
Eteocles be given a burial of
honor and that Polynices be left
for the vultures. The punishment
for anyone interfering in the at
tempt to get a proper burial for
Polynices is death.
Becomes Martyr
Antigone attempts to bury the
body and is caught by Creon. As
a true martyr she becomes known
for her good only after her death.
The adaptation that will be
used was first displayed in Paris
in 1945 and 1946, during the
German occupation. A few re
visions had to be made at that
time because of the marked like
ness of the dictatorship of Creon
to that of Hitler. The modern
setting will be used here with
formal attire during the hour and
40 minute continuous perform
ance. The cast is composed of eight
men and four women.
