To University Youth
Warren R. Austin
Chief of the United SUtes Mission to the United Nations
During the summer, I received thousands of letters from people
In ell parts of this country and all over the world. Many of thesa
letters were from young people who are studying world affairs In
our universities. I take this opportunity to thank them for their
interest in the cause of peace and their many expressions of support
for United Nations' action against aggression.
There never was a time in history when organized education
carried a heavier responsibility than at the beginning of this half of
the twentieth century. We shall need all of the wisdom and
knowledge and leadership we can muster to preserve civilization
and apply the body of knowledge to the improvement and welfare
The polls on public opinion contrasting the attitudes of Ameri
can citizens according to their education achievement show con
clusively that the university-trained people take a more realistic and
informed position on world affairs than .those with less educational
background. They show that university-trained people are less
swayed by irrational appeals to emotion. They show that they are
more alert to facts; that they read more, listen more and discuss
more than those with less advanced education.
Regardless of his vocational destination, the university student
needs to explore broadly the field of world affairs to consolidate his
foundations for effective citizenship. His active responsibilities will
demand of him through understanding of the principles which are
absolutely necessary to keep government free and to maintain the
blessings of liberty.
The student will soon perceive that this is a type of culture
that is closely related to his welfare. The student perceives already,
I believe, that the totalitarianisms of fascism and communism thrust
themselves upon, or are -slyfy injected into, his educational, eco
nomic, social and political cosmos.
The student has a stake in the success of the United Nations'
effort to give practical effect to those great fundamental principles
which are reaffirmed in its charter. The letter of the charter is
necessary, of course, to evidence that it is that the members have
agreed upon; but the source of the effectiveness and power of the
United Nations is the spirit of the members, overriding, by their
voluntary and determined cooperation, obstacles to the maintenance
The great vitality of this collective security that springs from
this spirit has been shown in the determined opposition of 53
members of the United Nations to armed aggression in Korea. It is
the privilege of the university student to participate in the public
promotion of those opinions, those strong desires and those deter
minations, which will maintain and strengthen the unity of the
major part of this world, in maintaining the front against aggres
sion and in lifting up those who have suffered and need help.
Without peace forces established under Article 43 of the charter,
the member states, upon recommendation, not order, voluntarily
defend the "ramparts' we watch" with wisdom, courage and faith,
because Truth, Justice, Freedom and Peace are under attack, even

To the Editor:
Should the U. S. use the atomic bomb? Why not? The inevitable
argument is that it would cause harm to innocent civilians. Is the
American soldier in Korea guilty? Is the North Korean soldier
or the Chinese Red Soldier guilty? I think they are no more guilty
than the "innocent" civilians of their nations. Yet they must face
death, suffering and untold hardship. If the soldier, and the
civilians of the nation which he represents, are Equally innocent
of perpetuating this conflict, then how, by the principles of justice,
may we discriminate between them?
Perhaps we fear the retaliation the A-bomb's use might bring.
Should not we, the "innocent" civilians, be subject to the danger
and hardship that have so thoughtlessly been "pushed off" on the
unwilling minority who happen to receive "greetings" from Uncle
Sam? This is discrimination, and in my mind unnecessary discrim
ination when we have the atomic bomb at our disposal.
We cannot possibly defeat the enemies we now face with man
power and the so-called "humane methods" of warfare. We have but
one advantage. That advantage is our technological superiority over
all other nations. Let's use it!

Bruises, bumps, cuts and
scratches can be seen maring the
beauty of numerous campus
coeds. Student health reports
innumerable sprained wrists and
at least one broken arm.
Is it that the cold weather
is affecting the usually "gentle"
attitude of the male sex giving
them the idea of practicing ju
jitso on their girls? Or maybe

poor, worn-out coed feel free to

No, unfortunately, it is not any
one of these milder forms of
torture. There is only one an
swer for these bashed-up, broken-down
females Nebraska Ball!
Nebraska Ball is merely an
other name for giant volleyball
which is played all over the
country. However, someone had
tthe idea of calling it Nebraska
Ball when it originated here sev
eral years ago and the name
The game is really very simple.
As I said before, it is very simi
lar to volleyball. The only
trouble is that the ball is about
three times wider than the aver
age girl. Thus every girl that
serves must spend five or ten
minutes balancing the ball on
her knee before she can serve it.
Using all the muscles, liga
ments, and high blood pressure
she possesses, the server sends
the ball sailing a full two feet
to another player, who is sup
posed to send it over the net
but usually misses.
How to Score
If the ball does happen to drop
to the other side, with the aid
of some unusually alert net or
field player, the server generally
passes out from the realization
that she has scored, and the
next server must take her place
hence, forfeiting a score by
From eight to fifteen players
can be on each side. When not
serving, the players bat at the
ball whenever possible helping
the serve across the net or hit
tine back the other side's ball.
Next to the server, the net
player is the second most un
happy team member. During the
entire game, her duty is to hit
back at the wicked-looking,
olive-green monstrosity. If she
misses, the ball usually hits the
floor and the other side scores.
And so the net player hits the
ball and hits the ball and after

Everybody visits the Union is
more than true at K-State.
Last Thursday night more than
$50 was taken from two cash
registers at the K-State Union.
The city police, as well as the
county sheriff, was called Friday
morning when the robbery was
According to Don Ford, union
munatrer. a south window naa
been pried from the hood and
forced open. County Sheriff B. E.
Deckert stated that smudges left
on the window sill Indicate that
the thief wore corduroy trousers.
Police believe the robbery was
committed by the same person
that has been operating in Man
hattan the past few months.
Method of entry and tool marks
left on the window were of the
same type as have been found in
other recent robberies in the
45 minutes of "hitting the bvfl"
she flounders off the floor with
a small attack of athletic fits.
The poor field player can also
be included in our list of un
fortunates. This team member
waits eagerly during the entire
game for her chance at the ball.
Finally, in the last two minutes
of the game she excitedly sees it
coming straight toward her.
Here is her big chance to be
the day's heroine! Here is her
chance to win the championship
for her team! And what hap
pens? The huge monstosity hits
her squarely in the stomach,
knocks every last bit of wind
from her, and rolls for six feet,
dragging her 112 pounds with it
leaving nothing but a physical
ly wrecked image of what was
once a normally healthy girl.

January of 1931. The organization
is national. The purpose of the
group is to encourage high schol

If the United Nations troops
are pushed out of Korea, should
they re-invade and attempt again
to drive the communists out of
This is one of the most baf
fling question facing the U. N.
today. When several students
and faculty were asked the ques
tion, opinions were expressed
both pro and con.
Those opposed to re-invasion
say: "Why lead our armed forces
back into an inevitable slaughter
against outnumbering forces.
Russia may be attempting to
weaken our forces enabling, them
to invade Western Germany with
little opposition. The loss of lives
and equipment would not be
worth re-admittance into Korea."
One source believes that "the
U- N. ought to propose a trustee
ship for Korea under U. N. con
trol until a plebiscite can be
taken voluntarily, without any
pressure from the outside. This
should be preceeded by orders
that all troops withdraw."
Those believing that troops
should go back in because the
communists are acting in direct
defiance of the United Nations
and to sit back and let them take
Korea would be appeasing the
communists. The communist ag--gression
has to stop somewhere
and that seems to be the best
place and the best way to stop

tion declined when asked to give
a definite opinion. They stated
that there was not enough in

any surmise opinion.

The girl's dorm has six trees

a girl is late, she is cheered by
the sight of the greenery, and

The Christmas spirit, however,
is not confined to the Univer
sity's women's residences. Most
of the fraternity houses also have

Who Would Tend Knitting
With Women in Service?
By Wally Reed
Ever since it was announced
that the draft would go into ef

one question uppermost in every
male's mind, "When will women
Well, we in the "Rag" office
have endeavored to answer this
most pertinent question to the ut
most satisfaction of all of our
readers. A poll was conducted
and in a very close race the nays
won over the yeas.
Those on the affirmative side
of the question argued that
women should be inducted into
the armed forces for various
reasons, among which were:
1. They might be able to help
lighted evergreen trees in front
of their house, and also a tree in
side. The Union has gone all-out for
Christmas decorations this year.
There are about six trees in the
building and two trees outside
are hung with strings of col
ored lights. A lighted wreath
