Gen. Douglas MacArthur's pro
gram to enlarge the Korean war
into red China would probably
"delight the Kremlin more than
anything else we could do," Gen.
Omar N. Bradley said Tuesday.
Chairman of the joint chiefs of
staff said that "frankly in the
opinions of the chiefs of staff, this
strategy (enlarging the war
against China) would involve us
in the wrong war, at the wrong
place and with the wrong enemy."
Testifying before the senators
investigating MacArthur's dis
missal, he followed Defense Sec
retary George C. Marshall who
had spoken for seven days in be
half of Truman's action.
Red China is not the real
enemy, he said; "not the power
nation seeking to dominate the
world." Bradley made it clear
that the limited war in Korea is
the one favored by the joint chiefs
From a military point of view
alone, the chiefs agreed that Mac
Arthur had to go," Bradley told
. the senators.
Bradley also emphasized these

a decisive move, does not guar

wwflling to take Russia, until the
country is stronger.
5. Pulling out of Korea with
out being forced out would be
appeasement. It is a "militarily
sound course" to refuse to en
large the war.

also are conducting all tours of

I Tours Guide Bulletin
The organization, with the fi
nancial aid of the administration,
published a tours guide bulletin
of Ag campus early this year.
Several complimentary reports
have come from the faculty com
mending the almost new Ag group
for its tours work.
With the current drive for new
interest in the college of agricul
ture coupled wxth conducting all
tours on Ag campus, the Builders
plan to share an office with the
Cornbusker Countryman next
year in the Ag Union.
At present, they have a smaller
office in the same building;
According to Ag Builders head,
Frank Sibert, the two groups
hope to keep office hours daily.
Plans call for installation of a
telephone and maintaining office
personnel from 8 a.m.. to 5 p.m.
Flans for Next Year
Next year's plans also include
conducting all ticket salec on Ag
campus from the central office
in the Ag Union.
Ag Builders activities are di
vided into five phases:
Parties and conventions, tours,
membership and mass meetings,
sales and publicity.

On the eve of voting, Univer

terested in what kind of student
government they wanted to gov
Interest was apparent "Tuesday
evening when Student Council
representatives, constitution pro
ponents and opposition laid
everything on the table at an
open discussion meeting.
Rob Raun, past president of a
Student Council which spent two
years formulating the constitu
tion, presided over the discussion
which considered pros and cons

constitution being voted on to
day. There was no lack of words as
Council representatives and pro
ponents of the proposed constitu
tion clashed ideas with opposi
tion. Heated Debate
Starting with a slight simmer
on the issue of whether Greeks
were fairly represented, the dis
cussion reached a climax when
Greeks maintained that if the
constitution proved unfair to
them- it would be almost impos
sible to amend it Fraternities,
claimed several students, are as
sured only two votes in the pro
posed constitution and should in
dependents suddenly organize and
gain control, it would be impos
sible to change the constitution
with the proposed ammending
It was explained this way:
Pointing to the stipulation in the
constitution requiring a majority
of votes in an election in which
at least 30 percent of students
vote to amend, Jim. Sullivan
maintained it would be impossi
ble for Greeks with their ap
proximate 20 percent population
to ever get an ammendment
passed. Independents, he main
tained, could either refuse to vote
and there would not be the re
quired 30 percent, or they could
Sullivan said there is every op
portunity to drive Greeks from
power under this constitution.
George Cobel, new Council
president, maintained that inde
pendents have no such intent and
do not want to force Greeks off
campus. He pointed to a slate
drawn up irecentli. in engineer
ing college, predominently inde
pendent, which included Greeks
and non Greeks.
Frank Jacobs insisted there is
no issue where Greeks and inde
pendents should line up against
each other and that even if inde
pendents should gain a majority
on the Council the battle would
be on the issue.

Voting Booth Location
Sullivan questioned the Coun
cil on reasons for a voting booth
in Ferguson hall, stronghold of
the engineers. Bob Parker, former
Council member, said this was a
logical geographical location in
relation to the other voting place,
the Union. Gene Berg said a sec
ond reason was that engineers
have complained about ifbt hav
ing a booth in previous elections.
A third reason was that it would
enable a student to "kill two birds
with one stone" see the new
building and vote. Limited ex
