News and Views
by George Wilcox
The purpose of this column is
not to "second guess" the experts
nor attempt to gaze into crystal
oan ana predict future news
I his column will attempt to
state the news of the day and in
terpret the" news into meaning for
an iieDrasKans.
Iron Triangle Shattered
During the week the top story
was tne scattering by United Na
tions forces of the communist
"iron triangle" in central Korea
with twin drives through Chor
won and Kumhwa in pursuit of
neemg red armies.
, Beaten Chinese reds streamed
north toward Pyonggang and
Kumsong in an effort to regroup
and strengthen defenses. Also, a
Chinese attack was imminent on
tt.e western flank of the United
Nations armies. "
The question In most minds is
what happens next? If the Chi
nese reds are forced to retreat
still further backward what will
be the next step. Will the United
Nations form a "buffer zone" in
which there will be no further ad
vance by the United Nations or
will the Chinese throw still more
manpower against the United Na
tions forces in an attempt to save
that very important "face."
It is the opinion of not too
many experts that China will con
tinue their attack. Most .observers
believe that the internal troubles
of China will curb the Chinese
red attack in Korea and force
them to negotiate for peace.
Unfortunately, in my opinion,
these experts do not realize that
China is throwing all its resources
into the Korean war even more
than before and must be in a
more - favorable position to
negotiate in order to hold the
prestige of the Chinese people.
My theory is that China will
never negotiate above the 38th
parallel and its peace terms will
be the same terms as before.
1. Admission into the United
Nations. 1 1
2. Handing over of Formosa to
the Reds. "
3. Recognition by the world
that Red China is the legitimate
government in China.
There are probably other fac
tors but the above three state
their case in brief.
However, the news of the shat
tering of the "iron triangle" is a
great victory for the Unitei Na
tions forces. One must remember
that the "iron triangle" defenses
were prepared in 1946 when Rus
sian officers were attached to
the North Korean army as ad
visors and were teaching them
the modern rudiments of war.
Meanwhile, in South Korea the
best we could do was to teach the
South Korean "Constabulary" the
basic movements of drill and light

Union Shows
Second Movie
Sunday Night
The second in the SummTSun
day film series will be "Street
With No Name" to be shown June
17 at 7:30 in the air-conditioned
Student Union Ballroom. Ad
mission Is free.
The film "Street With No
Name" stars Mark Stevens, Bar
bara Lawrence, and Richard Wid
mark, and is a factual movie.
The action-packed story is told
of the FBI's counter-attack
against gangdom's theatre of a
new era in crime.
Other films to be shown dur
ing the 1951 summer sessions
June 24 "Destry Rides Again."
July I "Quartet."
July 8 "My Little Chickadee."
July 15 "David Harum."
July 22 "Captain January.'"
Because of the large demand
for film classics, the Union de
cided to bring back some of the
older and better remembered
actors and actresses on their
screen. Shirley Temple and Guy
Kibbee star In "Captain Janu
ary" while "David ilarum" Is
played by the immortal Will
Rogers. "Quartet" is an English
classic, and Mae West and W. C.
Fields may be seen In "My Little
Chicadee." "Destiny Rides
Again" stars Marlene Dietrich
and James Stewart
DiSalle has performed a miracle.
Price controls on meat look like
they are here to stay.
Joe "Judge" Montague, a rep
resentative of the Texas and
Southwestern Cattle Producers
association, said he had no hope
that the government would can
eel or modify orders rolling back
beef prices
President Truman has indi
cated that he will go to the peo
pie in order to sell the price con
trol idea. In that argument he is
bound to win. With the price of
most commodities soaring, Presi
dent Truman can make political
hay of this issue.
MacArthur versus Acheson
" The return of General MacAr
thur and the subsequent speech
before Congress has been men
tioned many times in radio and
press. The viewpoint of the State
Department and the Joint Chiefs
of Staff has been fully described.
What is the long run result?
Do the republicans have a for
eign policy boner to tag on the
Democrats? Do the Democrats
have the "poor military planner"
tag on General MacArthur?
It would seem to me that that
kind of thinking is indicative of
the United States too many times,
ambitious persons trying to make
political capital out of issues and
facts that should be stated and
then forgotten. . ;
Whether you agree or not, the
return of MacArthur has been re
freshing. He has clarified the is
sue, stated his platform, and
whether his methods are right or
not, has pointed the question.
The release of the;Wedemeyer
report is long overdue. The testi
mony of the Joint Chiefs of Staff
has rvealed the lack of liaison be
tween the services..
The administration has been
made to realize that a, poor policy
is better than no policy.

the bad. Every day we learn that
our most precious secrets nave
been known to the Russians for
years so ohe more slip can't seem
to make much more difference.
Whether MacArthur or Ache-
son is right, the American people
have been educated in tne past
few months. Thus, an enlightened
United States is a strengthened
United States.

Workers Gain
Many Benefits
Are you interested in working
on activities this summer?
If you are, leave your name in
the Student Council box in the
basement of the Union or call
Barbara Bredthauer at the girls
Miss Bredthauer said that the
purposes of summer activities are
to pool workers who will work to
gether on activities in full swing
during the year, such as AUF,
Builders, Coed Counselors
YWCA, Red Cross, etc.
i ne workers are pooled since
each organization does not have
a full staff working during the
summer session.
Miss Bred'hauer also stated
three benefits which workers gain
by Working in summer activities.
They are: "1. You have a summer
activity. 2. You gain knowledge
and interest in activities on the
campus which is beneficial now
and will be beneficial in the fall.
3. Activities are a good way to get
acquainted with other students on
the campus."
The summer activities office is
the Cornhusker office in the base
ment of the Union.
All workers must be signed up
before the picnic, if they wish to
attend, Miss Bredthauer stated.

Girls', Boys'
Staters Have
Busy Schedule
After more than a week of
electioneering, law-passing, eat
ing, tour-making, speech-hearing
and entertainment, five hundred
and seventy-four high school
Boy's . and Girl's Staters turned
homeward, inspired and ex
hausted. The energetic state government
studiers had managed in their
short stay to pass many mock
legislature bills, asserting the be
liefs of future Nebraska voters.
Working on an intelligent dupli
cate of state government, the vis
itors first formed political par
ties and platforms, publishing the
views of candidates and parties
on long sheets of paper.
After hearing addresses on cor
rect voting and legislative proced
ure, the voters elected officers.
Undoubtedly with harmonious
government in mind, the boys and
girls elected Jim Cooper and Bon
nie Best, both of North Platte and
"steadies," as governors of their
Other Girl's State officers were:
Joyce Jensen, Omaha, lieutenant
governor; Shirley Rosenberg,
York, secretary; Carole Galen
Townsend, Sutherland, state
treasurer; Nancy Hall, Geneva,
supreme court chief justice; and
Pat Carlson, Omaha, attorney
Serving as lieutenant governor
of Boy's State was Michael Yan
ney, Kearney. Joe Poynter,
Kearney, was secretary of state;
Gary Eaves, North Platte, state
treasurer; Don Ackerman, Goth
enburg, chief justice; and Don
Imming, Beatrice, attorney gen
eral. The girls' six-day visit included
talent shows, visits around the
campus and city, banquets, panel
discussions, county board meet
ings and district court sessions.
The group visited the capitol
building where inaugural cere
monies took place. The real Ne
braska governor, Val Peterson,
gave an address.
As a climax to the session,
graduation exercises were held ut
Love Library auditorium, where
Mr. John Curtiss, National Com

night, and held governmental
meetings. Coach Bill Glassford
spoke briefly to the boys, after
which movies of Nebraska ath
letic activities were shown.
During their stay on the cam
pus, the girls lived in the wo
mens' dorms and in sorority
houses, while the boys lived on
the Ag. campus. Friday after
noon both groups attended
Boys-Girls State dance at the Sta
dent Union on the campus.
