Two allied spearheads were able to occupy most of Pyong yang, red capital since the end of World War II. The premier of North Korea, Kim II Sung, and his government had apparently fled northward, possibly into Manchuria or Rus sian Siberia. Frightened red troops surrend ered by the thousands, some clad only in their long underwear. The capital was almost deserted, although in normal times, it had over 700,000 inhabitants. The two major escape roads northward were reported clogged with re treating red soldiers. War Nearly Over Most correspondents predicted that the war was almost over, : although guerrilla operations j may continue. j In England. Sir Stafford ! Cripps, better known as "Mr. Austerity," resigned as Chancel lor of the Exchequer, a post he had held since November, 1947. The 61-year-old cabinet member had been in poor health for some time. Senator Herbert R. O'Connor of Maryland charged that about a half million gallons of Ameri can oil had been sent to China after the Korean war began. "Improper and wrong" were i the words used by the chairman of the senate subcommittee in vestigating reports that Ameri can ships have been carrying strategic materials into red China since last June. Quints Take Trip The Dionne quintuplets, now 16 years old. made their first visit to New York City. Their host was Francis Cardinal Spell- man, archbishop or Jiew xork. I Their only other trip into the United States was made m 1943. when they went to Wisconsin to launcn some snips. Reports from Washington are that President Truman assured General MacArthur that the ad ministration policies, in accord f those of the UN. will be to per manently neutralize Formosa. Russia accepted an invitation issued by the UN to join a 14 member "peace patrol" to smash world aggression anywhere in the world.

It will not be necessary, however, to enter candidates for Typical Nebraska Coed until a later date. The reason for the early sub mission of scripts is to prevent the duplication of ideas. In case two groups enter the same idea, the first script submitted will be used, and the other group will be asked to change its theme. The AWS board believes that this rule will give each group a belter chance in the competi tion. Scripts should be sent as soon as possible to Marilyn Moomey at 426 No. 16. Skits mur.t not exceed eight minutes and cur tain acts must be no more than live minutes. The New Entrances FAST I WHICH DOOR IS WHICH?

Only students will be able to go i n entrances marked "Students" in the diagram. Similarly, only faculty members and the genera 1 public may enter ramps specifically marked for "Faculty" and "Public."

His costume was authentic but his excuse didn't hold ground. There are no telephones in the stadium. Plumbing Repairman Another man claimed he was called to repair some plumbing. The fact that he didn't have any of his tools kept him from seeing the game. No one knows what tricks will be tried this Saturday. Most likely most of them will end up listening to the game by radio.

This is because of the opportunity which "Look to This Day," the title chosen for Chancellor R. G. Gustavson' convoca tion address Thursday, was taken from the Sanskrit. The poem is reprinted below by request from many students and faculty members. Look to this day! For It is life, the very life of life. In its brief course lie all the varieties and realities of your existence! The bliss of growth; The glory of action; The splendor of beauty; For yesterday is already a dream, and tomorrow is only a vision; But today, well lived, makes every yesterday A dream of happiness, and every tomorrow a vision of hope.
