NEBRASKA Friday, October 13, 1950 Se-Asr AfflacEts 3 e or Eled rdr The battleship Missouri -and allied warships set the port of Chongjin afire yesterday with a thunderous bom bardment and naval air strikes. The sea-air attacks were not many miles from the communist China and Soviet Siberia borders. There were indications that the heavy shelling was continuing. Chongjin, an iron and steel center of 190,000 people is 43 miles from the Manchurian fron tier and 49 miles southeast of Soviet Siberia. Carrier plans rocketed and strafed Chongjin in a fiery two day prelude to the warship bombardment. In addition to the Missouri, the U.S.- heavy cruiser Helena, and unidentified British, Canadian and Australian vessels took part. After an hour of shel ling, parts of the city were seen blazing. Bombardment AP correspondent, Gene Her rick reported that the bombard ment was like the one that soft ened the west coast for the am phibious landings at Inchon in mid-September. A landing at Chongjin could start another United Nations spearhead rolling across the pe ninsula to seal off the reds from Soviet supplies. Far south-vest of Chongjin, allied ground troops pushed steadily ahead on three fronts toward Pyongyang. Tank-led columns above the 38th parallel were moving toward the red cap ital from the south, southwest and east. On the fighting fronts, the reds were tasting the bitter med icine that they forced on the United Nations forces early in the war. Strike Extended Far ahead of the 135 mile front, stretching slant-wise across the peninsula north of the paral lel, allied planes extended their strikes in red Korea close to the Manchurian and Siberian borders. In Los Angeles the American Legion voted to "demand" that President Truman reconstitute the state department, but it side stepped naming Secretary of State Dean Acheson, or suggest ing his removal. Legion Report The latter had been urged by the legion's retiring executive committee, but was not incor porated in a report by the foreign affairs committee which con demned the state department's failure to deal adequately with the grim and bloody advance of communism throughout the world." The report also urged sponsor ing of a resolution by the Ameri can delegate to the United Na tions to the effect that "further aggression in any part of the world by Soviet Russia will meet the full force of retaliation by the United Nations police au thority, including, if necessary, the release of atomic weapons on Soviet Russia."

The first round is to be completed in one week while other dates will be announced as the tourney progresses. Better Watch Your Step! Today's Friday the 13th Have you looked at the cal endar lately? You'd better check up on that right away. Because Friday the 13th is the date to day and is also the day of days. That doesn't bother you? Well, fine! It's the superstitious people that should be worried today. Today brings up a lot of events that might be influenced by that Friday 13th dateline. ' Six weeks tests, trips to Boul der, big plans for parties at night, and committee meetings, will be events that might be fouled-up by Friday the 13th. However, there are several theories put forth as to the best way to get through the day with out loss of your soul, money, or reputation to the evil spirits. How about staying in bed all day? Forget to tell your room mate what time to awaken you. Or better yet, hide the alarm clock before going to bed. Those who are really superstitious might even iock their doors and pile a few chairs in front of them. Of course, the prospect of missing a few quizzes, lectures, or labs might induce the brav est souls to hop out of bed and venture out on Friday the 13th. Stay In Bed If you are one of the few who are going to be gaiiant and live through the day out of bed, you might be on the lookout for the evil spirits of the 13th. Whenever you cross the street look twice and hurry. Make sure that you see that typical campus driver rushing his rattle-trap down the pavement. He may be avoiding Friday the 13th, also. When you run up to the third floor of a class building or dorm, Committee to Enlist Aid Of Campus Organizations College Days general commit tee members Thursday afternoon made plans to contact all cam pus organizations to enlist their support and help for the cele bration. Jayne Wade and Marilyn Coupe were named as chairmen in charge of high school visitors. According to the chairmen, a committee will be organized which will work through Dean Henzlick, Teachers college and the School Masters club. An ef fort will be made during the state teachers' convention to in form the instructors about Col lege Days. To Send Letters Sometime in February, point out Miss Wade and Miss Coupe, all high schools will be sent let ters inviting students to the three-day celebration April 26 to 28. The following persons were appointed by Nancy Porter, per sonnel chairman, to visit organ izations and explain the purpose and setup of College Days: AWS, Ann Barger; AUF, Bill Dugan; Coed counselors, Jan Lindquist; Panhellenic, Phyllis Haley; Red Cross, Bill Dugan; Ag and City Unions, Ann Bar ber; The Daily Nebraskan, Jerry Warren and Joan Krueger; YW, Phyllis Haley; Corn Shucks, Bill Dugan; Farmers' Fair Board, Don Beaver; YM, Jan Lindquist; Cos mopolitan club, Susan Reed; N Club, Herb Reese; WAA, Poochie Rediger; and Candidate Officers association, George Wilcox. An effort will be made soon to contact different campus hon oraries to explain College Days. Colleges To Assist In addition to the Farmers' Fair and Engineers Week which will be a part of College Days, several other colleges and de partments have agreed to par ticipate in the celebration. Other colleges, reports Miss Reed, . are still conferring with faculty members. Letters telling the purpose of College Days and outlining a general program will be mailed soon to all campusprganizations, organized houses and colleges by Phyllis Haley, College Days sec retary. Beaver Speaks Don Beaver, chairman of the Farmers Fair, told the committee of plans Ag college is making. Included in the Fair will be the annual Rodeo, special events and open houses. Students who signed up to work on College Days commit tees at the activities mart will be called for a mass meeting soon, said Miss Porter. At that time they will be assigned spe cial committees or duties. A tentative schedule of events is being drawn up by Bill Dugan, assistant chairman. Chairman of the College Days committee is Gene Berg, president of Builders, the organization sponsoring the celebration. Committee members will meet Monday to consider special events during the three days. Senate Approval College Days, which was ap proved by the University faculty senate in 1932, will be a three- day celebration in the spring sinr'lar to Iowa State's Veishea and the University of Colorado's CU Days. Emphasis, points out Berg, is placed on educational aspects of college, but the public also has take it easy. People have been known to drop dead after ex erting themselves on Friday the 13th. Anotner precaution: be very discriminating in your choice of food. Your best friend, who is supersitious, might be trying to change your attitude towards the 13th by poisoning what you eat. Those things do happen, you know. Check Credentials When anyone offers you a ride home or to class, check their credentials first. They might be intending to drive into a stone wall to prove to you that Friday the 13th is actually dangerous. If you have survived the day without any mishaps, don't re lax! That seems to be the big mistake of all people on the 13th. You might come back to the dorm, house, or wherever you live and heave a sigh of relief that the day is over. Nasty Jokes Brotner, that's when you had better look out! Some little spirit with a twisted sense of humor might have put crackers in your bed, half-sheeted it, sawed off one of the legs, or even soaked your clothes and tied them in knots. We're not trying to frighten you; It's just that when you are least suspecting anything unus ual on the 13th, It happens. A few rare individuals do get through this day without any thing really serious happening to them. You might be one of them. So cheer up, drink a cup of black coffee to wake up, and face this day like any other day in the year. an opportunity to see other phases of campus life. Colleges and departments have been urged by the committee to plan open houses for the celebra tion, special displays and ex hibits which will portray the work of their particular study.
