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
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
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 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
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.
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
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
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.
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
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
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.

vocation committee, in addition

Atomic Bomb Vne

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

that the Big Seven coaches knew
something about their predic

Matched Score
The Missouri Teachers match

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

whole game, every man on the
Husker bench got into action.
Twenty-two men, in all, saw
duty for the Gornhuskers and 12

Center Bob Pierce and Guard
Jimmy Buchanan led the scoring
attack on the teachers, each get

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

the Cornhuskers to a 10-6 margin

three points of their own and the

breathing room but Laurin short

one-point margin. But here the
Missourians were doomed to
