UN Forces Take
Korean Offensive
United Nations tanks and
fantry went on the offensive
above Checoh on the east-central
Korean mountains and smashed
ahead four miles into the heart
of menacing communist bulge.
The U. N. push hurled back
elements of three North Korean
divisions who for a time had
threatened to turn the allied flank
below the central allied front
stronghold of Wonju, 20 miles
northwest of Chechon.
The drive also gave the allies
the initiative all alongt he Korean
front from the west coast 80 miles
inland to Chechon.
Lt. Gen. Mathey B. Ridgway.
commander of the Eighth Army
and all ground forces in Korea,
confirmed that the allies have
broken the counter-offensive and
sent the reds into retreat.
Air Force Stops
Involuntary Recall
The air force is cancelling the
involuntary recall to duty of
about 18,000 reserve airmen be
cause of the volume of voluntary
re-enlistments and enlistments.
The suspension of voluntary re
calls applies only to airmen. A
spokesman said it does not effect
the recall into active service of
members and units of the air
force organized reserves.

This draft question is still the
main topic of discussion on all
college campuses over the nation.

He may join the army, air

to complete four years of study
and brings a commission. The

of active duty after college.
Another alternative is to enlist
in the naval reserve, apply for

offers ROC. Only high-rank stu

p.m., Thursday, Feb. 22, and not
Feb. 28, as previously reported.
The show will be divided into
five parts. Each part will feature
either suits, casual, or tailored
dresses and formal models. No
less than half of the 50 dresses
to be modeled were made from
the design of a student and
therefore without use of a com
mercial pattern. ATI of the gar
ments to oe snown were sewn
by the girls themselves.
"I like My Age," is the title
or the first part of the show
which will feature useful cotton
dresses, typical of certain age
groups. Annette Carnahan will
narriate this section.-

section, "1 Like Tradition," to
be explained by JoRetta Owen.

"I Like Line, Pure and Simple."
It will emphasize the various
lines of dresses, straight, full, or
A basic dress with several
changes of accessories will be
used to carry out the "I Like
Versitality" theme of the forth
section of the show. Bonnie
Schmitt will explain this portion
of the program.
The final part of the program
is called "I Like Fashion." Some
thing new, different from any
other garment and representing
the "height of fashion" will be
featured in this part of the pro
gram. Delaine Bishop will nar
rate for the final portion of the
Expanded Show
This year the show has been
expanded. In the past the annual
Home Economic club presentation

refreshments are 50 cents and

Answer to Shucks New Issue
By Wally Reed

dog would bite the hand that

The Chicago meeting was held
nearly two years after a previous
meeting of the national commis
sion on accrediting in 1949. On
May 3, 1949, Chancellor Gustav
son, chairman of the commission,
called a meeting in which a set
of standards for professional
schools was developed.
Schools weak in professional
training were eliminated, forced
to consolidate, or to develop and
integrate improved educational
programs. Additional study of the
problem was made during last
week's conference.

Communist Activity
If you will take it from one
who is in the know, the real
reason for the Student-Council

activity of members of the 'Rag

The Shucks staff also put out
another little pamphlet along
with their issue of the 'bucket'
entitled Corn Shucks.
In the current issue we wish
to call your attention to the joke

column. It's good.
