Discussed At Weekly Session
What do you expect of your
Student Council?" The Council
at its meeting Wednesday voted
to print this query in the Ne
braskan. If suitable arrange
ments could be made, student
response to this blank would
help the Student Council better
serve the students it represents.
The Outside World
In News
Army Versed
In Atomic Info
Gen. McAuliffe, new United
States Seventh Army, com
mander, said that more emphasis
will be placed on the training
for U.S. troops in Germany.
Data on tactical principles and
information for greater defense
from atomic attack has been ob
tained and so the warfare pro
gram will be broadened, added
the commander. Gen. McAuliffe
who observed the Bikini bomb
tests is the '"first atomic gen
eral" to take command of the
Seventh Army.
Situation Tense
The situation is critically tense
in Palestine, reported Maj. Gen.
Vagn Bennike, to the Security
Council. A council session will
be summoned Monday to hear
the general's report and decide
what United Nations action is
necessary to restore calm. Even
though matters are uneasy, it is
not likely that a major world
conflict will result from the situ
ation, said the General.
Delegates Walk Out
The explanation groups have
been delayed since Monday be
cause of the walkout of the
Polish and Czech delegates who
were voted down by the Indians,
Swedes and Swiss. The two Red
satellite members left because
they could not win their point
in the Korean Prisoner Repatria
tion Commission. They proposed
that anti-Red Koreans be forced
to hear Communist efforts to
wheddle them home.
U.S. Military Aid
As soon as the plans for Euro
pean Defense Community are
ratified, United States military
aid will be sent to Western
European countries. Secretary of
State Dulles and other top offi
cials have been reported as being
confident that the EDC treaty
which has been stalled for sev
eral months will finally be rati
fied within the next three or
four months.
Germany is the only country
which has ratified the treaty and
if it passes it would mean re
arming West Germany. Other
signers include France, Italy,
Belgium, The Netherlands and

of the campus radio station,
KNUS, revealed that radio in

poses and not for public service
and entertainment.
The possibility of an orchestra
booking agency, through which
organizations on campus could
obtain bands, was discussed and
a poll of sororities will be taken
to find out whether it would be
pointed to the Convocations

of Birdie, but did not give the
character the hysterical quality

Jean Carol Delong did her
usual competent job as Alexan

minor roles.
TWO DRAMATIC highlights
of the play ' were strangely
thrown away. One is the point at
which Regina turns on her visit

production, Regina spoke the
