Move to Front
Both good and bad news was
recorded Wednesday in Korea.
Although South Korean ma
f ( rines landed at . Samchok and
U.N. troops were "at the gateway
of Seoul," U.S. Tenth army offi
cers reported to Gen. Douglas
MacArthur that a column of com
munist reinforcements was mov
ing south from Manchuria.
A beachhead was established
by the South Korean marines at
Samchok, 105 miles north of Po
hang, on the Korean east coast.
Just how many troops had land
ed or exactly when the landing
was made was not yet learned.
A spokesman presumed that
the amphibious assault, which
marked a third front in Korea,
was in sufficient force to hold the
Across Peninsula
The city is across the Korean
peninsular from Inchon where
the U.S. First marine and Sev
enth army divisions landed and
are pounding at Seoul's gates.
At the same time the column
of reinforcements heading down
from Manchuria, was said to
consist of 200 vehicles, including
tanks. It was reported to be com
ing from the Manchurian city of
Meanwhile French forces were
reported unofficially Wednes
day night to have recaptured the
. I strategic northern frontier out-
post on Dongkhe from Viet-Minh
communists. French troops, bat
tling what may be a large-scale
communist attempt to seize con
trol of Indo-China, cut down a
battalion of communist troops in
a slaughterhouse attack.
Formosa Introduced
At Flushing, N. Y., the United
C States placed the problem of
Formosa before the United Na
tions general assembly Wednes
day and proposed a program to
provide the world organization
with standing military forces for
( use against aggressors.
1 Secretary of State Dean Ache
son also proposed that the U.N.
establish a "U.N. recovery force"
to send resources and personnel
to aid in the reconstruction of
Korea once the communist in
vasion has been "crushed as it
deserves to be." He also accused
Russia of being "the main ob
stacle to peace."
That the world organization
will survive has been proven by
the Korean war, Acheson con
tinued. "Blood is thicker than ink," he
In Berlin, East-West tension
boiled into a new "cold-war"
flare-up Wednesday when Rus
sian soldiers tried to seize a part
of the British sector of the city,
j, British Arrive
When confronted by British
officials backed by 100 troops in
armored cars bristling with ma
chine guns, the Russians with
drew. The number was unde
termined. v The incident occurred after
sudden mass arrests of sector
police, kipnapings and new Rus
sian pressure to squeeze the
Western occupation sectors.
The soviet sector officials
announced also that they would
cut electrical power in the West
ern sector by half at midnight
Wednesday night by shutting off
all current going from the East
to the West.
There were difficulties seen in
this country Wednesday also.
Gen. George C. Marshall stood
Wednesday at the door to per
haps the most difficult office he
ever held in 48 years as a soldier
and statesman.
Only certain senate confirma
tion of his appointment and the
formality of administering an
oath were needed to make him
the nation's third secretary of
Hard Job
If there was any doubt that
the job is hard and demanding,
the record should erase the
doubt. .'
James Forrestal, first secre
tary, collapsed under the pres
sure, and Louis Johnson, caught
up in interdepartmental contro-
versy, and congressional critic
ism, was forced to resign.
The president of the American
Bar association said Tuesday
night the 17-year record of fed
eral judiciary appointments by
President Truman and the late
President Roosevelt marks a re
turn to the "spoils system policy."
The association president said
"it is wrong to appoint men to
the bench purely because they
have rendered service to the par
, ty in power. If such men are en
T titled to some erward, let them
be rewarded in some other way."

To End
Final tryouts for "Antigone,"
the first University Theater play
of the season will be held Thurs
day, Sept. 21, from 7 to 9 p.m. at
the Temple building. Any regu
larly enrolled student of the Uni
versity is eligible to tryout. This
excludes, however, freshman
women who are not allowed to
engage in extracurricular activi
ties until after the first six weeks
of this semester.
The production calls for a cast
of 12, eight men and four women.
The play is sponsored by the ex
perimental theater and will be
directed by Dean Graunke.
The play is a tragedy which is
based on the Greek myth of An
tigone, a Greek maiden, and her
father Eodipus.
The following is a description
of the characters given by
Graunke as they appear in the
An ancient Greek guide acting
as narrator leads the audience
throughout the entirety of the
tragedy and explains the actions
of the players.
Antigone is the heroine who is
motivated by high ideals. She re
fuses to compromise with evil;
does not care much about her
own appearance and is typical
throughout the play as a "tom
boy." She is straightforward and
has definite beliefs about the
rights of humanity. She adopts
the role of a martyr when she
atempts to bury her brother,
Polynices, against the orders of
the Creon, regent of Thebes.
An older woman who is a com
panion of Antigone is the nurse.
She runs the household in a
comical but gruff manner.
Antigone's sister, Ismeneme, is
constantly pursued by the young
men of Thebes. She attempts to
persuade Antigone against being
"so interested in mankind."
Other Parts .
The new king or regent, son of
Creon, is Haemon. He is engaged
to be married to Antigone and
has the reputation of a great
The present regent, Creon,
knows how to handle people but
is also very ruthless. The paradox
shows him as a dictator who is
cruel and demanding.
Prominent as Creon's hench
men are the guards who are pres
ent at the courts following the
capture of Antigone.
The Messenger is the forebod
ing prophet who is always long
faced and sad.
A sort of Lord Fauntleroy part
is played by the Page.
Wife of Creon, the present re
gent, is Eurydice, queen of
