r"J L UlfU i Vol. 51 No. 55 LINCOLN 8, NEBRASKA Tuesday, December 5, 1950 U nn mm, Honors Convo 4. . . Committee Refuses Builders Request The request by College Days planners to have Honors Day convocation included in the cele bration has been refused by the University Honors convocation committee. The committee planning the three day celebration in the spring had asked the convocation committee to change the convo cation date from Tuesday, April 24, to Thursday, April 26. This would mark the opening of the College Days activities. In a letter to Bob Reichenbach, College Days Representative, Dr. Roscoe Hill, chairman of the Honors convocation committee gave two reasons for refusal this year. First, the speaker who has been engaged for the occasion lives in Chicago and cannot be obtained for Thursday, April 26. He tenta tively has been scheduled to ap pear April 25 at the Medical col lege in Omaha, the letter wrote, and it is impossible to change date. Date Already Published The letter gave as the second reason that the committee felt since the date had been pub lished already in the University calendar, it would be a poor policy to change now. The committee also wrote they felt the idea was good, and passed a resolution saying that UN Army Abandons Capital Assembly. Asked To Take Action Pyongyang was abandoned by United Nations forces Monday and left it a city of terror for the hands of surging Chinese Invasion army. The army is soon expected to reach more than one million men. U.S. first marine division and two regiments of the Seventh army regrouped in Northeast Korea for a final 50 mile smash through the walls of the Chosin reserve area. A communique said red Chi nese already had thrown 268,000 front-line troops into the fight ing, had grouped 550,000 more in the rear areas and was bring ing 200,000 more. A fantastic development oc- cured in the northeastern battle area. The Chinese released 29 wounded American soldiers and sent them back with the message Haying Chinese troops were go ing to Manchuria. ASSEMBLY ASKED TO DISCUSS CHINA The United States and five other countries formally asked the United Nations assembly to take up the Chinese intervention as an urgent matter. The request was made in a telegram to Trygve Lie and signed by the chief delegates of the United States, British, France, Norway, Cuba and Ecuador. Diplomats are still awaiting the results from the Secret con ference Sunday night between India's Sir Benegal Hau and communist China's Wu Hsiu chuan. Observers do not expect the United States to ask the assembly to take action against the Chi nese reds until after the Tru-man-Attlee talks. TRUMAN, ATTLEE CONFER ON CRISIS British Prime Minister Clem ent Attlec is in Washington con form with President Truman on the present world crisis. Tru man and Attlee have many ad visors for their conferences. Attlee told reporters that the aim of these talks' is to align our policies and to find the means of upholding what both countries know to be right. He said that Russia is wasting time if they intend to split the US and Great Britain. POME SENATORS ASK A BOMB USE Some democratic and repub lican senators have been calling for an ultimatum to Russia and to China. The ultimatum states they must get out of Korea and if they do not, the atomic bomb will be used. Sen. Morse (r Ore.), Sen. Ferguson (r., Mich.), Sen. Leh man (d., N.Y.), and Sen. Aiken (r., Vt.) are supporting tho use of the A-bomb. NAVY WILL CALL RESERVES TO DUTY The nnvy announced Monday that 15,000 ntival reserves will be called during next April, May or June for active duty. The orders will be sent to those called four months prior to the date they are to report. The Weather More snow Tuesday With cold wave settling- in. Winds 25-30 m.p.h. next year the convocation would be included in College Days. Reichenbach, who had talked to several members of the com mittee earlier this fall, sent a formal letter to the group asking for the change. His reasons were as follows. 1. Undoubtably, there will be some absences due to College Days and it would be better to have just one student absence rather than sprinkled ones. 2. Having Honors convocation in College Days would emphasize the scholastic side of Unive-sity life. 3. College Days wanted the convocation from 9 to 11 a.m., rather than 10 a.m. to noon be cause the engineers have sched uled the dedication of Ferguson hall for 11 a.m., April 26. 4. Parents will be coming to College Days and if the Honors were included among the events, these parents would not have to return to their homes before coming back for College Days, or have to remain an extra day. It is also difficult to notify par ents about the convocation. If they were attending College Days the program would be scheduled and the parents present. 5. The Honors convocation would be the only event sched uled for that particular time. People would be urged to go and a larger attendance assured. Committee Members Members of the Honors con vocation committee, in addition to Dr. Hill, are: Mabel Lee, chairman of the department of physical education for women; E, J. Marmo, associate professor of engineering; J. O. Burnett, assistant professor of accounting; Frederick Beutel, professor of law; Irma Kyle, nursing college; and Pam Kinne and Kent Axtell, student representatives; and Dr. George Rosenlof, registrar, and T. J. Thompson, dean of student affairs, ex-officio members. Frankforter To Address Detoneers Colonel C. J.

Lood 61-39 By BILL MUNDfcXL The Nebraska Cornhusker basketball aggregation sputtered around for almost a half last night before it increased the tempo and went on to rout the teachers of Northwest Missouri by a 61-39 score. The outcome was never in doubt after the first half as the Huskers settled themselves down a little to play basketball. The contest was typical of a first-nighter for both State-Wide UN Institute On Saturday Nebraska world affairs clubs will hold a state-wide meeting on the University campus Satur day. Fifteen delegates from 15 state colleges and universities are ex pected to attend the one-day ses sion. Two different programs will be held. Student delegates will meet to attempt to organize a state world affairs organization. Faculty advisers from the differ ent groups will hold a special conference to discuss problems which the advisers have. Jerry Matzke will serve as temporary chairman of the stu dent meetings and S. J. House, NUCWA adviser, will conduct the adviser sessions. Five Questions The decision to organize a state organization will depend on five questions. They are: 1. Is a state college world af fairs organization desirable? 2.. What would be the purposes and principles of such an organ ization? 3. How would it be organized? 4. What would be the pro grams and projects of the organ ization? 5. How would it be financed? The first question will be de bated during a two-hour session Saturday morning. After a luncheon at noon, the delegates will attempt to draw up a con stitution and otherwise study the plans decided during the morn ing. Other committee groups will study such problems as finance and program agenda. At 3 p. m. the group will re convene. Reports from the or ganization and constitution com mittees will be given at this time. A coffee hour will be held at the International house at 4 p.m. Serving on the planning com mittee from the University are Jerry Matzke, chairman; Jackie Sorenson, secretary; House, Dean Sorenson, Harold Peterson and Con Woolwine. Working in co-ordination with this committee are world affairs lenders from Wesleyan, York and Midland colleges. Martin Luschei and Ken Rog ers from Wesleyan, Elwin East man from York and Professor Zabel from Midland are helping plan the conference. Official name of the confer ence will be Nebraska Collegi at World Affairs Institute. A followup conference is planned for February 8 to 9 at York col lege.

It was apparent that the Big Seven coaches knew something about their predic tions as the Husker machine ap peared far from the defending champions of the last two sea sons. The Big Seven coaches, in a pre-season ballot, tabbed tha Huskers to finish last in the con ference race. Kansas is the favorite to cop conference honors with Kansas State tabbed to make a race of it. Missouri and Oklahoma were picked to end the year in third and fourth place respectively and Colorado and Iowa State in fifth and sixth. Matched Score The Missouri Teachers match ed the score they ran up at Lin coln last year 39 both times. The Husker outdid them here, also, their 61 being three more than last year's 58. When the game reached rout proportions early in the third quarter, Coach Harry Good sub stituted freely and over the whole game, every man on the Husker bench got into action. Twenty-two men, in all, saw duty for the Gornhuskers and 12 of these broke into the scoring column. Center Bob Pierce and Guard Jimmy Buchanan led the scoring attack on the teachers, each get ting a night's total of 15 in the limited time they saw action. Joe Good and Ben Akromis each contributed seven markers to the Scarlet total. George Nathan, Marysville guard, led the way for the teach ers with an effort of 11 points. Jim Laurin added nine for sec ond high honors for the visitors. Teachers Lead The game increased with in tensity and interest as it went along. The teachers took a brief lead at the start of the game on Lyle's free throw, but Buchanan's two gratis shots gave the Hus kers a one-point -edge. Both teams shot frequently and missed them all during the first three and a half minutes until Laurin's two-hand shot put the Missourians back in front. An even five minutes had elapsed in the game before the first Nebraska field goal found its way through the meshes. Akromis was on the throwing end of this scorer and the Hus kers were never headed . again. Buchanan dropped in a two pointer and Pierce added two free tosses for the remainder of the NU scoring In the opening stanza. A quick goal by Good boosted the Cornhuskers to a 10-6 margin at the start of the second period, but the Invaders countered with three points of their own and the gap was only one point. Doomed to Fade Buchanan gave the Huskers breathing room but Laurin short winded them with a basket of his own and there was still that one-point margin. But here the Missourians were doomed to lade. Pierce contributed a field goal, Buchanan duplicated the trick and went one better with a free throw. Jimmy missed his second of two throws, but Pierce tipped It In and the Huskers had an eight-mark bulge. From here, Coach Good's See Game, Paire 3 Next Semester Schedules Available Soon Class schedules will be avail able beginning Tuesday, Dec. 12 on the second floor of the Mili tary and Nnvnl Science building.
