Taft's much disputed foreign

General Wedemeyer as this:
"Taft's desire is first of all to aid

Names In The News
By CHARLES GOMON
Staff News Writer
MICHAEL J. M'DERMOTT, department of state press officer,
announced that the Syrian government would receive a formal
protest in the near future against the bombing last week of the
U. S. information service office in Damascus.
One Arab radio operator was killed in the explosion. None
of the American members of the information office ttaff was hurt.
The recent blast was the third in a series of similar incidents
directed against U. S. property in Syria. The U. S. legation was
bombed in 1950, and the residence of the American minister was
damaged in 1951.
GEN. HOYT VANDENBERG, air force chief of staff, told a
congressional committee that the air force is "attempting to make"
its personnel wear suspenders.
Explained the general, when pants with belts are worn under
the regulation battle jackets, shirts are apt to bunch up and create
a "most disreputable appearance."
SALA MORTADA BEY, Egypt's public security director, an
nounced that the Egyptian government uncovered a plot to smug
gle arms and ammunition into the country.
Under these circumstances, the Bey explained, the martial
law order would be extended until after the Egyptian elections
NEBRASKA, scene of half the April 1 primaries in the na
tion, bundled boxes of ballots cut to polling places to await Tues
day morning. After campaigns of varying degrees of intensity by
candidates of varying degrees of confidence the state's voters
prepared to cast their ballots for men to fill the positions of public
trust. Within forty-eight hours the nation will know the prefer
ence of 300,000 Nebraskans, if that means anything.
GEN. DOUGLAS MACARTHUR delivered a speech In Jack
son, Miss., which attacked the administrations domestic and for
eign policy almost without let-up. Speaking in uniform, the gen
eral accused President Truman's administration of .graft, high
taxes, waste, and socialist practices.

his age will have an oppor

Syvia Krasne and Marvin Stro
mer, co-chairman of the mock
primary, emphasized that when
casting write-in votes, the can

out correctly and an "X" must be
placed in the box before the name.
The mock ballot will include
names of all candidates for na

gates and alternate de'egates to
the national convention.
The officers of president, vice-
president, senator and delegates
at large will appear on the na
tional ticket. Due to a change
in the Nebraska state law, voters
will be allowed to express a first
;and second choice for the offices
of president and vice-president.
The state ticket will list the
following offices: governor, lieu
tenant governor, secretary of state,
auditor of public accounts, state
treasurer, attorney general and
Students are eligible to vote
in the election between 10 a.m.
and 5:30 p.m. Monday in the
Union, Ferguson hall and the
Ag union. ID card must be pre
sented in order to vote.
Unofficial results will be an
nounced at the YM-YW panel dis
cussion Monday at 5 p.m. in the
Union faculty lounge. The Tues
day edition of The Daily Nebras
kan will carry the official returns.
A mobile public address system
operated by the Corn Cobs will
assist in getting out the vote.
Participation in active cam
paigning will be allowed but may
not take place within 100 yards
of the polls, Miss Krasne said.
A voting board will be made
up of two Republicans and one
Democrat and a counting board,
of one Republican and one
Democrat. The two-one ratio
on the voting board alternates
with each primary.
Pre-election registration has not
been required because the Univer
sity, taken as a Nebraska town,
has a population of less than 7,
000. Duplicates of Nebraska pri
mry ballots will be used and the.
election will be conducted accord
ing to actual election procedure.
The purposes of the election as
set forth by Miss Krasne are to
emphasize the significance of a
primary election, familiarize stu
dents with actual voting proce
dure, enable the voting board to
compare votes and show the in
fluence of student mock primaries.
The YWCA and YMCA are
also sponsoring a panel discus
sion, "Primaries, Are They 'Eye

Love library auditorium. Sen.
Estes Kefauver, Dr. Roger Shu
mate and Raymond McConnell,
