'problem; if not that proposed by
the Innocents Society, then a simi

can contribute to the polio fund
and still provide a creditable
Homecoming display."
The solution which the Inno
cents have flugp.efited is donating
to polio relief the $5 fee paid by
houses upon entering Homecom
ing display competition. The
! houses would thus keep their
Homecoming funds inlact, while
the polio fund would still be sup
ported. Don Noble believed that "the
compromise proposed by the In

In the right direction toward
a logical solution." He addetl,
however, "If more time and con

better solution could result. Due
to the fact of the time element,
If the Innocents Society could
be aswured of the backlnf of the

Starting In 195C under the
title "The Biggest Show of
1950," the road show featured
only Nat "King" Cole and Sarah
Vaughn. This also held true of
the "Show of 1951." Kenton and
his orchestra have joined forces
with the show's initial stars for
the 1952 fall presentation.
Also included on the bill are
Stump and Stumpy, comedians
who traveled ,with the show last
year; George Kirby, mimic and
humorist; The Congaroos, dance
team; and Teddy Hale, dancer.
Featured with the Kenton or
chestra is Ma'ynard Ferguson, a
23-year-old Montreal trumpeter.
Ferguson is reputed to posses the
highest range of any trumpter in
the world and plays without any
mechanical changes in his instru
ment. Kenton has, for three consecu
tive years, won the title as the
nation's number one orchestra on
"Down Beat" magazine's popu
larity poll.
He formed his first band in 1941.
Since then he has caused much
controversy in the music world
because of his modern style and
stubborn musical ideas.
Nat "King" Cole has had his
name in the music world's ar

formed his trio. Cole is most

Dear Editor;
Following the Innocents meeting Monday eve
ning, a letterlp was submitted to The Dally Ne
braskan concerning the Homecoming House dis
plays. The purpose of the letterlp was to establish
a "stand" upon which we feel that both the Polio
Fund and Homecoming will benefit My purpose
In writing this letter is to somewhat clcarlfy the
Innocents' outlook on this issue. Bear in mind,
however, the the Innocents Society Is definitely
"one-sided" In their viewpoint, but 111 give it a
(First) There Is no harder an Issue aralnst
which to compete than the Folio Fund, because
the need Is so great and because Nebraska
especially has been hard hit!
(Second) There ere so few really Nebraska Tra
ditions which ore or con be attended by our coun
terpart, the people of the State of Nebraska. The
only ones that I con think of ore Homecoming, "E"
Week, Farmer's Fair, and Ivy Day. Of these, it
seems thot Homecoming has the most state-wide
acclaim. I wouldn't however, place Nebraska's
Homecoming on the some level as Iowa Stale's
Vclshea Days in so fur as individual, state-wide
acclulm is concerned.
(Third) Let's look into the reasoning behind
the totul contribution of Homecoming funds to the
Polio Fund. The great need has definitely been es
tablished, but may there be other reasons also?

SEOUL, KOREA Allied Infantrymen counterattacked against
the biggest Red drive of the year. They struck back at the 12,000
screaming Chinese Communists who attacked the White Horse Moun
tain front late Tuesday. Allied troops fought by the light of aerial
flares, searchlights and artillery shells in their attempt to regain the
vital outpost.
More than 1,100 Chinese were killed by the Allies on Arrow
head Ridge since the attacks were launched, reports from the front
said. More than 400 Communist troops had cut through the peri
meter of White Horse Mountain defenses, reports said. Fanatical
Chinese charged across a battlefield

participating feel both needs equally as great
that the bomeeonring funds remain Intact and
that each individual member of these houses
contribute to the Folio Fund?
b. Could it be that it is much easier to extract
$50 from the house treasury than to spend a week
of hard work in preparation for this event?
c. Could it be that many organized houses which
find themselves not on the arranged pattern of
traffic routing firing the eve of Homecoming feel
that an Injustice is being done toward them and
that they now have a means by which to "release
themselves from the yoke?"
d. Or could it be that the idea of "our names
