Ike Meets With Cabinet
1 ABOARD CRUISER HELENA President-elect Eisenhower con
ferred with five of the men he has appointed to his cabinet on ways
to end the Korean war without involving the United States in an ex
panded war. He met with John Foster Dulles, next secretary of state;
George Humphrey, next secretary of the treasury; Douglas McKay,
next secretary of the interior, Herbert Brownell, next attorney gen-
Korean president, asking for increased economic assistance and wider
scale war against the Chinese Communists. Eisenhower would not
make a statement about the Korean situation.

New Strategy Against Communism?
WASHINGTON Diplomats believe that a new U. S. strategy for
fighting Communism in Asia is taking shape in President-elect Eisen
hower's shipboard conferences. They say the general is beginning to
plan his basic policy not only for Korea but for the entire ar East
They believe that the new administration will order a boost in
U. S. aid for Asia. Basic planning for a shift in emphasis from Europe
to Asia is underway in Washington. The new administration will step
up propaganda offensive against Communism in Asia.
The experts say Eisenhower will aid the Chinese Nationalists but
oppose their service in Korea. He does favor, they say, stepping up
aid to the South Koreans.
Lawyer To Present Case Against Draft
WASHINGTON A lawyer from Nashville, Tenn., has asked the
U. 9. Supreme Court to hear his ease against drafting soldiers for
service without war being declared. The lawyer. Fyke Farmer, has
asked the court to consider the case of Stanley Sydow, Lyons, Neb.,
who refused to report to his draft board for induction. Sydow was
sentenced to three years in prison. He is in jail in Omaha awaiting
the outcome of his appeals to the Circuit and Supreme Courts.
The Nashville lawyer, who wants to take Sydow's case to the
Supreme Court, has spent several years working to outlaw war by
international law. He wants to raise these constitutional questions
before the Supreme Court:
1. Whether President Truman has authority to call men for pos
sible service in Korea without a declaration of war by Congress.
2. Whether there is an expressed restriction on presidential
power in the UN Act of 1945 which requires Congress to consent to
use of U. S. military forces in UN action.

Chancellor Gustavson stressed
the fact that a budget problem
faces the University. The bud
get of the University is made up
in the following manner, said
Gustavson: "We ask each de
partment to work out plans budget-wise
for the next two years.
This budget is turned over to
the Dean, which is given to the
administrator and then to the
Board of Regents, which is later
submitted to the Governor."
Cost of living has gone up to
the University staff and he is ask'
ing for n average of 8 per cent
j increase in salaries per biennium
Fifty-two per cent turnover in
i the staff means that we are oper
ating at a very efficient level,
Gustavson said, so he is asking
for an average of 15 per cent in
crease in the non-academic of
The past budget on which the
University has been operating is
$12,500,000, Gustavson said.
He stressed the fact that Im
provements must be made in
the University. Approximately
$750,000 will be needed to de
velop the Medical School in
Omaha, around $400,000 to de
velop the Agriculture School and
around $400,000 to develop the
The age in which we are living,
said Gustavson, needs powerful
new drugs that are effective and
studied before doctors begin to
use them and we want to accom
plish this in our Medical School.
We fail to meet our responsibility
as a Medical School, he said, when
we have to depend on volunteers
for specialized medicine.
