On Arms Plan
In Washington the President
Truman-Prime Minister Attlee
conference came to an end Sat
urday. They called for a faster
buildup of the West's military
forces, offering to cease the re
armament drive if red leaders
would make an acceptable peace.
The conference was called to
consider the world-wide in
volvement of the Chinese com
munist attack on Korea.
British and American leaders
pledged that their countries
would "act together" to meet
all communist threats.
Truman Reserves Right
Of A-bomb Decision
It appears that President Tru
man has reserved for himself
the right to make a final de
cision on the use of the A bomb.
He promised that Attlee would
be informed on any develop
ments which might cause the
U. S. to decide to use the bomb.
Attlee, however, was pleased
with the understanding with
Truman on this point.
The only point of disagreement
came when Britain expressed
the continued belief that the
Peiking regime should be given
nationalist China's chair in the
U.N. Also Attlee disagreed with
placing a naval block on the red
Truman, Attlee Agree
On Military Aid Policy
On behalf of their govern
ments Truman and Attlee agreed
on economic and military aid to
non-communist nations in Asia;
U.S. and British cooperation
towards a peaceful settlement;
considering Formosa's future as
a contribution toward peace;
intensification of defense prepa

nations; appointment of a eu
preme commander for the com
bined armies; and sharing the
defense burden through expan
sion of arms production.
Hamper U.S. Retreat
On the front, troops have been
fighting out of traps sprung by
the Chinese communists. A mile
south of Kato they are fighting
out of a week-old trap empha

Blinding snowstorms pre

Korea's civil population has

vading communLir.. An Eighth
army spokesman says that in
the north civilians are being
driven out of territories already
occupied by communists. The
majority of the displaced are
moving southward to areas not
yet reached by reds.
To Margaret's Critic
Paul Hume, critic for the
Washington Post, wrote a criti
cism on Margaret Truman's per
formance. As a result of his ar
ticle he received a none too
flattering letter from the Presi
The letter was written on
white house stationery and
signed simply 'H.S.T." and went
something like this: "I have read
your lousy review. You sound
like a frustrated old man who
never made a success, an -eight-ulcer
man on a four-ulcer job,
and all four ulcers working."
"I never met you, but if I do
you'll need a new nose and
plenty of beefsteak."
In his review Hume said that
Miss Truman is "extremely at
tractive on the stage" but "can
not sing very well."
Hume said that Truman's at
titude is: A man suffering the
loss of a close friend and carry
ing the terrible burden of the
present world crisis ought to be
indulged in an occasional out
burst of temper."

Every year the grey-robed
monks lay their most precious

perfect gift she would raise her
hand in blessing.
A poor juggler creeps to his
feet fearfully, for be feels he has
no gift to offer. Unconsciously
he begins to juggle and in his
exictement doffs his cap, holding
it to her for a penny.
Realizing his sacrilege he de
cides that to be forgiven he must

do, juggle. Exhausted, he dies at
