U. S. Eighth Army forces set
up a holding line 17 miles south
of the politically sensitive boun

within a few miles of the
The brief announcement from
the army, after a three-day si
lence, said that the holding ele

along the parallel. The announce
ment did not include the location
of the holding points.
The Chinese appeared to have
given up their last main military
base south of the parallel
Chunchon, eight miles below the
line in central Korea.
Indications that the Reds had
abandoned well-prepared de
fenses along the Hongchon river,
south of Chunchon, were given
in reports to Eighth Army head
quarters. Twenty-four F-80 Shooting
Stars, flying under cover of 12

"1953, Year Of

1953 will be a year of prepar

bilizer Charles E. Wilson. The
United States will have a "really
mighty array of weapons ready"
to fight an all-out war, Wilson
In the same year, the country
not only will meet defense pro
duction requirements but "ought
to actually be able to expand our
output of civilian goods," the De
fense head also said.
Wilson gave his views in a
copyrighted interview with the
magazine U. S. News and World
Wilson said he had received
the "green light" from President
Truman on his program "espec

ness that I have been working
By debt control, he said, he
meant "interest rate, credit con

The desire of University stu
dents to work together without
stressing denominational differ
ences Is the incentive for the all
campus candle light service of
meditation and communion to be
held in the Campus chapel, Wed
nesday, March 21, at 7;30 p.m.
The Communion service, spon
sored by the University YW-YM,
will conclude the Religious Wel
fare Council's program for Holy
Week. Kathleen Dill and Rudy
Nelson are co-chairmen.
The arrangement of .he candle
light service will be a replica of
the Last Supper with candles rep
resenting the disciples. The four
student pastors who will partici
pate in the .service are Rex
Knowles, Presby house; Dick
Nutt, Methodist Student house;
C. B. Howells, Baptist Student
house; O. L. Turner, Christian
Student group.
Prayer, Scripture
Included in the program are
a prayer by Romain Rasmussen,
scripture read by Ned Conger, a
solo by Harriet Swanson and a
reading, "Disciples in Clay,"
given by Audrey Flood and Neil
"Disciples in Clay," a sermon
written by the former United
States Senate chaplin, Peter Mar
shall, and delivered to his Wash
ington congregation, has been re
vised and rewritten to fit the col
lege scene by Bob Shuler. It is
a discussion of the vay in which
the 12 apostles were chosen, with
implications for present day dis
ciples. Service of Great Value
"If there are those who for
any reason prefer not to partake
of the elements, they may feel
free to remain in their seats in
worship. We hope that each of
us can share in his own way
in this experience of worship;
that this service and this season
may have its greatest value in
our lives," says Miss Ruth Shinn,
YWCA executive director.
The candle light and com
munion service were initiated two
years ago by the YM and YW in
response to the desire of students
to worship together without
stressing denominational differ
ences. Co-chairman Kathy Dill is head
of the Worship Workshop and
Fine Arts committee. She is also
secretary of the Residence Halls
for Women. Rudy Nelson is all
University program chairman of
the YM, a member of the Luth

Five Bach
University Singers presented
five of Bach's religious composi
tions Palm Sunday to an audi
ence of 400 at the First Plymouth
Congregational church.
Robert Martell, tenor soloist,
nn Eugene Kuyper and Jack
Anderson, baritone soloists, sang
difficult arias of Bach's cantatas.
Cantata Four, "Christ Lay in
the Bonds of Death," offered the
most variation from Bach's usual
big and solid bass leads. The so
pranos carried the lead until the
second part in which the lead
shifted from one section to an
other. The other canata, "Thou Shep
herd Bountiful," was unusual
because it consisted of one cen
tral theme, yet many counter
The choir also sang "The Art
of Fugue," and "Holy, Holy,
Holy" as a processional and a
seven-fold "Amen" to conclude
their annual presentation.
Organist Myron Roberts played
the choral prelude, "We Believe
in One God," and the well-known
"Come Sweet Death."
The Singers sing every year
at Palm Sunday vespers and are
directed by Dr. Arthur E. West
brook, director of the School of
Fine Arts.

that both add to the creation of

Speaks to
State funds must offset the ex
pected decrease in student tuition
and meet the inflationary ex
penses of the University, Chancel
lor R. G. Gustavson told the bud
get committee of the state legis
lature Monday afternoon. Chan
cellor Gustavson, accompanied by
25 University deans and officials,
appeared at the committee hear
ing in support of the requested
$13 million University budget
$2 Ms million above Governor Pe
terson's recommendations.
Carl W. Borgmann, dean of fac
ulties, explained the requested
budget, item by item, presenting
charts to emphasize his reports.
Budret Fund Increase
While the over-all University
budget will increase only 17 per
cent during the next biennium, he
said, state funds must be expand
ed 69 percent to make up for de
creases from other sources and to
expand the University's program.
A $lVz million decrease in stu
dent fees and almost $2 million
for meeting inflation and compe
tition of other schools must be
offset by state funds, both Chan
cellor Gustavson and Dean Borg
mann declared.
This would be in adition to the
$8 million appropriation for the
present biennium.
Replace Obsolete Equipment
Borgmann also estimated that
$800 thousand would be required
to replace obsolete equipment,
make day-to-day repairs, pur
chase books for the library and
reopen the hospital ward at the
medical school in Omaha. This
brought the total to well over $12
An enlargement program of
$125 thousand and a growth pri
marily in the Colleges of Agri
culture and Medicine, amounting
to more than $1 million, must also
be met by state appropriations,
Borgmann said.
In explaining the decrease from
student tuition, Chancellor Gus
tavson pointed to the decreased
birth rate of the 1930's, the ter
mination of veterans' training and
the acuteness of world tension.
' Higher Salaries "
He also emphasized the need
for increasing teachers' salaries to
compete with surrounding schools.
While Nebraska's tuition is fie
highest in the Big Seven and the
Big Ten, Chancellor Gustavson
said, teachers' salaries are, on the
average, lower.
Dr. Harold Leuth, dean of the
College of Medicine, reported that
during the present biennium,
"every possible economy has
been made" in his college, in
cluding the closing of the hospi
tal ward.
Medical Expansion
Approximately $400 thousand
of the $13 million would be
used to expand the program and
facilities of the Medical College.
Dr. William V. Lambert, dean
of the College of Agriculture,
spoke in support of the $475 thou
sand increase scheduled for his
When an "earmarked" appro
priation was mentioned by the
committee, Chancellor Gustavson
declared that such a budget would
"tie our hands." The departments
of the University are interdepen
dent, he said, and cuts are often
made in one to advance other
programs which are considered
more important.
Cannot Cut Faculty
Substantial cuts in expenses
cannot be made by decreasing the
faculty, he said, even though the
University enrollment may de
crease to 5,500 or 6 thousand
students next year.
The hearing was attended by
thirty-five persons, including all
the deans of the college, four
members of the board of regents,
and several other University of
ficials. Arnold Society to Begin
Pledge Program Plans
Arnold Society will meet to
night at 7:30 in the Military and
Naval Science building.
Plans have been made to begin
a pledge program. It will get un
