MacArthur Has Korean Plan
GEN. DOUGLAS MacARTHUR said "there is a clear and def
inite solution to the Korea conflict" one without "an unduly heavy
price in friendly casualties or any increased danger of provoking
universal conflict."
The former Far Eastern commander said the present course
In Korea was leading toward a world war. "There has been a
material change in conditions from those of 20 months ago when
I left the scene of action," he said, "and the solution then avail
able and capable of success is not now entirely applicable." He
did not say how the "change in conditions" might alter his pro
posal made then which included bombing Red Chinese bases in
Manchuria, blockading the Red China coast, and using Nationalist
Chinese forces.
Eisenhower Returns From Korea
home from Korea. After three days of visiting the front lines and
tnlkine tn military officials, he left behind him:
1. A statement that "much can
Improve the situation without spreading the war to the Chinese
Communist mainland. However, he said there was no easy solu
tion to the Korean problem.
2. A promise that the South Korean Army will get "bigger and
better" during his administration, and that economic aid will con
tinue. 3. A cheered President Syngman Rhee, described as "more con
fident than ever" after his talks with the general.
MEMBERS OF CONGRESS have demanded immediate action
on Gen. MacArthur's secret new plan for ending the Korean Wat.
They urged both Truman and Eisenhower to consult the former
Far Eastern commander. A Defense Department spokesman said
any communication from the general would receive direct attention
from the Joint Chiefs of Staff and Defense Secretary Lovett.
Sen. McCarthy of Wisconsin said, "I hope and trust that Gen.
Eisenhower utilizes the great talents of Gen. MacArthur in ending
this conflict." x
Sen. Dworshak (R-Ida.) said, "Recalling that Republicans uni
versally criticized Mr. Truman for firing MacArthur and ignoring
his recommendations, it would -now appear logical that both the
President and the President-elect would take advantage of Gen.
MacArthur's generous offer."

was asked to sell his own services
as car washer, diaper washer and
Santa Claus.
In 1950, The Innocents and Mor

services to the highest bidders.
This year, the two Societies will
again be auctioned off.

of the 1951 auction. Marvin

He introduced himelf as
"Kewpy" Bill Doll, originator of
the three-verse, three-minute
poem. But he hates poetry.
Opening a paper-filled brief
case, he produced a 39-page
book of poems on what he
called, real people and actual
experiences." The book is a
collection of Doll's rhymes writ
ten with notations of the cir
cumstances under which the
verses were written.
Doll, who says his home Is
wherever he is, goes about pro
moting his book along with an
additional "personal" poem for
each purchaser. Often he makes
the proposition: The personal
poem in three minutes brings
double the price of the book and
over three minutes the book and
are free.
What he means,-he said, is that
he does not like heavy poetry,
pieces about nature and public
shrines, for instance.
"I want my poetry to rnyme,
he emphasized, "Guess I'm Just
old fashioned but t don't like
blank verse and free verse."
Aside from promoting his
book, Doll does a one-man
comedy routine ior nism ciudh

Religious Welfare Council
Thursday night approved a pro

The constitution must be ap

the Student Council, campus re

The Council on Religion, under
the proposed constitution, would
consist of four subsidiary bodies:
1. City Campus Religious
Council, replacing the present
Religious Welfare Council.
2. Ag Religious Council.
3. Religious Workers Associa

council composed of representa

The single constitution and the
Advisory Board will provide the
primary coordinating features in
The Board will advise other
religious bodies, interpret the
constitution, provide organiza

and generally supervise the
overall program of the Council
on Religion.
Ag Religious Council and Re

remain essentially as organized.
The City Campus Religious
Council (CCRC) would be con
structed similarly to the present
Religious Welfare Council, with
the following major changes:
1. Unanimous vote of student
house representatives present at
a meeting would he reouired for
approval of official CCRC proj

75 NU Cadets
To See Active
Duty In 1954
Seventy-five University senior
Air Force Reserve Officer Cadets
will be affected by an order call
ing 8,000 AFROTC students into
active service in 1954 according to
Lt. Col. Alex Jamieson, professor
of air science and tactics.
He said that all the seniors in
advanced Air Force courses would
be called to serve the minimum
of two years unless they have
previous service or are taking
graduate work. Not all types of
graduate students would "be
granted a delay in orders, he said.
Only the students seeking higher
degrees in courses essential to the
Air Force would receive the de
lay in orders.
The Air Force order said that
the Reserve Officers would re
ceive their orders for active duty
within four months of their com
missioning dates.
Lt. Col. Jamieson said that this
order would not affect the jun
iors in AFROTC courses, but if
present world conditions till er
ist at the expiration date, April
30, 1954, it would be extended for
another period.
padding of the doors with a
plastic material called "bambu."
The material looks much like
split bamboo used in interior
decorating plans, and when
backed with a cushioning mate
rial, formers effective sound
proofing wall.
Lake said that the old French
window type doors at the entrance
of the parlors has been changed
to the four-window upholstered
type, which carried through the
over-all decorating plan for the
three parlors.
Plant boxes for the parlors were
designed by Lake and Larson, and
were built by the Prisoner Manu
facture group at the state peni
tentiary in Lincoln. Lake said
that the plant boxes served one of
the inmates this summer. The
prisoner hid in one of the Boxes
and managed to disappear when
the boxes were shipped to the
University from the prison.
Lake said that the entire pro
gram presented an expense of
over $2,800, with the carpet mate
rial representing an expense of
more than $1,700. The savings
made possible by being, "our own
interior decorators," was approxi
mately 35 per cent of the entire
amount, Lake added.
"Often the architects in charge
of planning require a certain
fee, and a percentage on all the
material used, with our facili
ties for making our own designs,
and buying directly from the
manufacturer, we are able to
save a considerable amount of
the money for onr redecorating
program," he added
Lake said that the next maior
redecorating project will "be the
main lounge. The problem of buy
ing the correct type of furniture
for the main lounge is a very
great one, Lake said. He noted
that experiments "with several
types of furniture are being made
