Russians Ask
U.S. Withdrawal
The United . States and five
other countries called on the
U.N. Security Council to order
the immediate withdrawal of all
Chinese troops from North Ko
rea. Jacob Malik replied that the
Korean conflict can be peace
fully settled only if the U.N.
and United States withdraw from
the battle.
His motion to block out the
Korean question was defeated 10
to 1. The council voted 9 to 0 to
put the problem of the Chinese
intervention ahead of the Pales
tine case.
The United States, France and
Britain asked the council to dis
cuss the Chinese communist ac
tion instead of the Palestine
UN Action
The security council has in
vited a representative from Peip
ing to discuss the charges that
the Chinese communist forces
are deployed for action against
Korea and U.N. troops.
Warren R. Austin said that the
attitude of the council may save
the Peiping regime from a grave
and tragic miscalculation.
The Korean war has resulted
in a new farm land boom. Prices
have climbed five per cent since
last March.
Largest increases in land value
have been in the corn belt and
great plains states.
Bridges Destroyed
Strong allied air blows de
stroyed two border bridges in
the supreme effort to choke off
the Chinese red troops pouring
into Korea.
The last of the four big hydro
electric plants which supply
power to North Korea and parts
of Manchuria is now in the hands
of the U. S. marines as a result
of a five-mile advance on the
northwest front.
The U. S. superforts struck
widely, dumping 10,000 fire
bombs on the military center of
Pukchin in north central Korea.
They loosed 96 tons of fire
bombs on the red command post
and supply post of Uiju. On the
east coast they blasted the port
of Chongjin.
Experimental Theater
A special experimental ' movie
theater for children opened last
week in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Among its only rules: Adults will
be admitted only if accompanied
by a child.
The government is now trying
to end the nationwide telephone
equipment workers' strike. The
union is demanding an unspeci
fied "substantial boost" in wages
that now average $1.55 to $1.62
per hour.
In Chicago a flash fire pan
icked 130 residents of a south
side apartment. Six people are
hospitalized with burns and in
juries. No one was killed in what
might have been a major tragedy, j

luncheon in the Union Thursday
noon to evaluate this year's pro
gram. Dick Nutt. Methodist Student
Pastor, presided at the meeting
of the students and pastors.
The group discussed the entire

cided that a more advantageous
time to hold the week would be
in the spring.
The committee felt that next
year's program would require
more careful planning in order to
be completely successful.
An attempt will be made to
clear the week of as many other
activities as possible in order to
remove any conflicting programs
which might divert attention of
the students from the Relgion-in-Life
The group made plans to
strive for an all campus cover

U.S. Ag Agent
Cites Projects
For Mo Basin
"The Missouri Basin Develop
ment Program," was the topic
discussed by Mr. Gladwin E.
Young, field representative of
the U.S. agriculture department,
before a joint meeting of three
Ag college departmental clubs
Thursday night.
"River basins have taken on
special significance as units for
developing and making effici
ent use of our wealth of natural
resources," Mr. Young said.
He went on to state that the
Missouri river basin develop
ment program is an outstanding
effort in this direction "because
of its size and complexity."
"The objectives of the pro
gram stated simply," he said,
"are to create new agricultural
and industrial opportunities and
to protect those we have."
"For the last 10 years the cli
mate has been very kind to the
people in the Missouri basin,"
Mr. Young said. But he added
that this situation could not last
"A stable foundation for ag
riculture in a region where
drought is en unusually high
risk in farming is, of course, a
primary target of the program,"
he said.
He also said that the project
is designed to contribute to flood
control in the basin as well as
provide irrigation.
Mr. Young emphasized that
the individual farmers must
carry out conservation on their
farms in order to make this
project work the best.
"Foremost among the contri
butions that you will be able to
make is to go back to your home
communities and become the sci
entific farmers, ranchers and
homemakers of your generation,"
he told the group.
