When Gen. MacArthur flew to
Korea to view ' his heavily-hit
United Nations forces he said
his troops remain relatively se
cure, unbeaten and able to bat
tic the Chinese forces.
In MacArthur's statement to
correspondents there was a note
of guarded optimism in his state
ments concerning his quick trip
to the waffronts.
"All our units are intact and
the losses inflicted on the enemy
have been staggering estimated
by local commanders in the field
as high as 10 to 1 compared to
our own," said MacArthur.
He concluded that the Chinese
reds had failed in a plan to en
compass destruction by on mas
President Truman is giving
serious thought to the question
of declaring a national emer
gency possibly to be followed
by wage-price controls. Both re
publican and democratic con
gressional leaders are to meet
with him Wednesday.
There are hints that the ad
ministration will take action in
the wage-price field without
much further delay. This is ex
pected to be done before the
Truman also has scheduled a
meeting with the National Se
curity council. This is his top
advisory board on precautions
necessary for national defense.
The marine corps announced
that the First marine division
suffered more than 30 per cent
casualties in its fight to break
through the Chinese trap in Ko
rea. This possibly means that 6,000
to 7,000 casualties resulted in
the three infantry regiments
making up the division. No spe
cific figures were given by the

He went on to say however,

or local fortunes of war.
In Book Nook
More than $260 worth of books
have been stolen or mislaid from
the Union Book Nook, Marilyn
Moomey, chairman of the Union
activities committee has re
vealed. In duscussing the loss, Mis
Moomey said that "it happens all
the time bu we don't really
believe that the books were de
liberately stolen but rather taken
by persons who intended to re
turn them but Just never did."
Some of the 97 books which
have been taken are ones which
have been lost before and re
ordered. The books "most likely
to be iaken are fiction Oooks.
Hunor books, especially those by
William Thurber, arc missing.
The most unpopular books seem
to be the biographies.
The total value of the books ',
now in the Book Nook is csti
mated at $1,303. Most of the
books were not bought by the
Union. Other campus organiza
tions have contributed them.
Genene Grimm, activities di
rector, stated that "the money
spent on replacing books could
be used for many other pur
poses in the Union."
She reminded students that the
Book Nook is not patrolled and
is for relaxation and pleasure and
no books can be checked out.
They muft be read in the room.

As a result of lagging admin

Corresponding to the date the
last proofs were returned, the

Meanwhile, under direction of
Berg, attempts are being made
to facilitate earlier publication
of the book next year. Builders

CHRISTMAS RECITAL A French story, "The Juggler of Notre Dame," will represent the ser
mon in the Christmas worship, service which Orchesis is presenting Wednesday. According to a
legend, should anyone place a perfect gift before a wooden statue of the Madonna, she would
raise her hand in blessing. A poor entertainer, who juggles there because it is the one thing he
can do, dies exhausted but receives the blessing. Shirley Sidles will portray the Madonna. Left to
right in the picture are monks, Diane Downing, Wanda Bott, and-Dee Irwin. Helen Troy Martin,
Orchesis director , is the Juggler.
