the student conferees will be
venturing upon previously un
trod ground, for no such confer
ence has actually occurred in the
United Nations. Such a confer
ence is probably certain to oc
sur in the next several years,
however, and the student dele
gates will be able to formulate
authentic arguments by read
ing the views expressed by dele
gates from their countries to the
United Nations.
During the meeting Ruth Soren
son read Article 13 of the UN
charter. The article states that if
a conference to review the char
ter has not been held before the
10th anniversary of the coming
into force of the charter (which
will occur in 1955) a motion to call
such a conference shall be placed
on the agenda of the General As
sembly. A conference shall then be
held if desired by a majority of
the General Assembly and seven
members of the Security Council.
Thus, NUCWA, fn holding this
conference, is proceeding upon the
assumption the such a conference
has been agreed upon an as
sumption which may very feasibly

Wdl lime.
Dr. Frank Sorenson, faculty
advisor, spoke at the meeting.
He stressed the importance, ob
jectives and history of NUCWA.
He said NUCWA will exist for
a long time because of its im
portance. The U. S. delegation,
anxious to be truly represent
ative of the American people,
watches the work of NUCWA
with great interest Nebraska
.has achieved nation-wide fame
. from its United Nations activi
ties, he said,.
Because of the dominant role
of the U. S. in the United Nations,
Americans must understand other
nations, Dr. Sorenson said, so that
this nation can be the kind of
partner whfch others are seeking.
NUCWA is promoting this import
ant task of international under

NUCWA, Dr. Sorenson related the

The rehearsal Friday night
dealt with the first act of the

The cast went through their
parts without individual scripts
for the first time. This was the
third day of rehearsal.
"Street Scene," Elmer Rice's
Pulitzer Prize winner, portrays a
lower class of east side New York

rule the lives of the people of
many nationalities in the tene

their daughter, Rose. Mrs. Maur

digressions and takes drastic
ateps to stop it.
Rose, victim of a rocky love af

the play.

rector Williams had the cast go
through this sequence a few times.
But the apartment in Temple
auditorium is a scaffold 30 feet
high. No ladder goes up to the
second floor. Consequently Miss
Sidner had a rough time of get

Williams' directive of running
away with the cue meant a great
deal to Miss Sidner. His directive
visibly aided the presentation and
clarity of the rest of the cast in
the first act.

A point was brought home at
a night class the other day.
One student had given the
class a long lecture on the evils
of what he termed the American
"lazy mind."
As often happens in discus
sions, the trend was taken away
from that subject. Then, about
ten minutes later another stu
dent asked just exactly what did
the first student mean when he
accused Americans of having
lazy minds-?
The class turned aronnd to
look at the one who had made
the original accusation.
He was asleep.

INTOINE PINAY startled most people, including himself,
when he was successful in his first attempt at creating a new
government in tottering France. Pinay, outgoing minister of
works, was called upon to head the government by President
Vincent Auriol after the cabinet of Edgar Faure fell. Though
Pinay still faces the difficult problem of organizing a cabinet
that is acceptable to the National Assembly it appears that there
is hope arising in a situation that was thought impossible. Pinay
was able to take 27 de Gaulle votes away from the RFP which
had voted to abstain from the balloting that would give Pinay
the right to attempt formation of a new cabinet.
HOWARD J. McGRATH, Attorney General of the United
States, became the target of a new attack on the Justice De
partment. A House investigating committee demanded that de
partment files be turned over to them for inspection. The com
mittee was investigating the cases which the Justice Department
has neglected to take action upon. Rep. Chelf (D-Ky), chairman
of the group, became lighting mad when the files were refused
them.- He promised that he would leave nothing undone in an
attempt to force Mr. McGrath to turn over the files In question.
NEWBOLD MORRIS, President Truman's new crime-fighter,
started out his survey of activity by sending financial question
naires to some 25,000 government employees. Morris stated that
he was going to discover exactly what the financial condition of
each employee was. The announcement came after the charge
that Att. Gen. McGrath had accumulated his wealth after be
coming head of the Justice Department. Morris promised quick
action against all violators and art immediate resignation on his
part if the President failed to back him up.

Dr. Martin Niemoeller, German pastor and subject of
recent religious controversy, will speak at the Coliseum to
night at 8 :15 p.m. as a preface to University Search Week.
Niemoeller, who made a highly-publicized trip to Mos
cow at Soviet invitation in January, is now on a lecturing
tour in the United States.
The German pastor was a U
boat commander in the German
navy during World War I. H is
an ex-prisoner of Hitler, and at
present is president of the Luth
eran church in the western Ger
man regions of Hesse and Nassau.
He is also head of the church's
central "foreign office" in Berlin.
According to church spokes
men, the "foreign office" has
nothing to do with "foreign pol
icy," but designed to supervise
German church missions in
foreign countries.
Niemoeller's influence, accord

correspondent, is sliding down

and Eastern areas.

his teachings have created in the

Dr. Hinshaw, former president
of William Penn college in Iowa,
is a leader in the Quaker church
and is affiliated with "The Fel

talk is being arranged by the

Because of his strong pacifist
beliefs, Dr. Hinshaw has been in
the midst of much controversy,
according to Mary Lou Hawk, stu

strongly feels, Miss Hawk said,
that force doesn't accomplish any
thing. He believes that "one's con
science isn't subordinate to gov
ernment." The topic of Dr. Hinshaw's
