Hit by Sen. Taf t
Fighters of the U. S. Seventh
division forged ahead in central
Korea Monday to a point six
miles north of Pangnim. The
soldiers met rifle and anti-tank
fire, but air observers reported
that the reds were withdrawing.
Monday's action marked the
first time the Seventh division
has been identified in action
since it withdrew from the
Changjin reservoir last Decem
ber. Estimated red losses Sunday
totaled 1,861 killed and wounded,
as United Nations forces ad
vanced at least 3 and one-half
TAFT URGES LIMIT
Sen. Robert Taft said Monday
, that unless congress limits the
power of President Truman, as
many as 18 U. S. land divisions
may be sent to Europe.
In a statement for the troops-to-Europe
hearings, the senate
republican policy leader voiced
his objection to any military aid
to Europe until those countries
definitely make commitments
concerning their contributions.
Taft testified that it would be
"foolhardy" to send even six div
isions to western Europe's de
fense. He made his statements
after the testimony of John Sher
man Cooper, republican adviser
to the state department, who
said failure to provide foot sol
diers for the Atlantic Pact de
fense force might mean "the
greatest surrender in history."
Most of the members of Ne
braska's legislative liquor probe
committee, which is now investi
gating the "grandfather clause"
of the 1947 liquor licensing bill,
voted for the measure when it
was originally passed.
The bill provided that no liq
uor manufacturer could be "in
terested in the ownership, con
duct, operation or management
of any Nebraska liquor distrib
utor." But it contained the fol
lowing exception, or "grandfath
"Where the Interest of the
manufacturer of alcoholic liquors
was acquired or became effective
prior to the date of the passage
of this act."
It is this clause which is now
bothering some of the Nebraska
legislators. Some have said that
it froze the wholesalers into a
monopoly because, in effect, it
gave a distiller who had an in
terest in a wholesale firm a
"permanent license" for the

Fails to Agree
Three University students were
awarded superior ratings in de
bate at the eleventh annual in
tercollegiate debate and discus
sion conference held on the cam
pus last weekend.
Wayne Johnson and Dale John
son were judged superior as a
debate team. Johnson, Johnson
and Charles Rossow were each
awarded superior as individual
debaters. Debaters considered the
question, "Resolved: That the
non-communist nations should
form a new international organ
ization." Joan Krueger was one out of
the seven to receive a superior
rating in all three rounds of dis
cussion. Charles Rossow and
James Wamsely were awarded a
superior rating for two out of
the three discussion periods. The
topic discussed was, "What
should be the defense program
of the youth for the future?"
Bob Askey was the only stu
dent from the University to re
ceive a superior in radio news
casting. At the third and last round of
discussion Saturday, which con
sisted of a parliamentary session,
all superior winners of the two
previous discussions assembled to
debate and decide upon the reso
lution of three previous meetings.
A third party introduced a new
resolution which defeated the
other two parties. Therefore the
session was unable to send the
results of the discussion to Con
gress which had been done in
The conference as a whole, ac
cording to Donald Olson, speech
director, "was a success because
of the complete cooperation on
the part of the participants."
The University College of Medi-;
cine is in danger of losing its
'A' rating among the nation's
The board of counsellors of the
state medical -society disclosed
this information Sunday at its
annual midwinter meeting.
Inadequate funds for operation
were cited as the biggest prob
lem now facing the college.
Chancellor R. G. Gustavson
commented that it is just a part
of a situation that has grown be
cause of increased costs and too
small a budget. He believes that
the legislature is concerned about
it and will remedy the situaiic;.
before the rating is lost.
Conditions of the college are
"crowded and definitely not of
the best," Sen. Arthur Carmody,
chairman of the legislative budget
committee, said last week after
! touring the school in Omaha.
! The budget of the college must
be increased by more than $600,
000 to bring the school up to a
par with the national average,
according to Dr. Harold Leuth,
dean of the college.
Leuth pointed out the fact that
the average cost per day per pa
tient is $12.64, one or two dollars
below the average for any uni
versity hospital in this region.
However, the students pay a
higher tuition than most near-by
The school has asked for a
$2,600,310 budget for the next
two-year period. The 1950-51
budget was $981,540.
