'Security' Dismissals Reviewed
WASHINGTON From 130 "security" dismissals or forced
resignations in 1953, four were found to be "disloyal persons," the
Treasury Department informed Congress. The information was
given to the House Appropriations Committee and published by
Libert Tuttle, acting security officer for the department.
In a report on the Customs Service, which employs 8,000, it
was disclosed that six persons were dismissed last year as security
risks. All six seemed to have "contact with Communists," customs
commissioner David Strubinger said.
Reds Intend To Stay
BERLIN -Secretary of State Dulles reported as one of the
most important achievements of the Big Four Conference the
learning of Soviet military intentions in Germany and Austria.
The United States must maintain sizeable forces' on the con
tinent for a long time because of Russia's determination to keep
military positions in Europe, American officials said.
Kai-skek, Hu Or Yu?
TAIPEH, FORMOSA Chiang Kai-shek was nominated for a
six-year term by a 32-man central committee of nationalist China's
Kuomintang (ruling party). Kai-shek requested to step down from
the Nationalist presidency but the committee unanimously rejected
his request. Kai-shek said he would announce his decision Tuesday.
Kai-shek suggested Dr. Hu Shih, former ambassador to Wash
ington, or Yu Yu-jen, head of the executive council for the
presidency. Dr. Hu is a famed 63-year-old scholar and philosopher.
Yu was considered too old 77 for president.
Underground Pentagon
WASHINGTON The "underground pentagon" is finished
The high command's atom-age offices are built inside a mountain
65 miles from the national capital. The project was begun three
years ago and will provide an alternative command post and
communications .center if atomic attack should destroy or threaten
the Pentagon. The cost of blasting out the cavern was estimated
about $35 million.
The main chamber, which is about 35 feet high, is deep in
the interior of the mountain where presumably evn a direct hit
by an atomic bomb could not penetrate. Also included in the
design are special air intake filtering equipment to protect against
poison gas or germ warfare material. An emergency power and
water system are included in the design also.

said Denisten.
In his letter of acceptance,
Kemper stated, "I am grateful
for this opportunity to tell a
story which so far has been de
nied a hearing by the Nebraska
Board of Regents."
THE PUBLISHER has hurled
several charges concerning the
athletic situation at the univer
sity. He claims that:
Scholarship agreements with
athletes are just as much an
obligation to the University as
Glassford's contract.
The Omaha World Herald was
shown preference in the distri
bution of free press tickets to
the stadium.
Regents failed to give 44 foot
ball players a proper hearing
after they obtained a petition
against retaining Coach Bill
Football net profits of $200,
000 annually show that there is
no need for a "slush" fund of
$29,100 raised by alumni and
" Assistant coaches who left
school were not questioned dur
ing the Glassford issue.
Novacain was improperly ad
ministered to get injured play
ers back into the game.
DR. SAMUEL I. Fuuenning,
director of Student Health, an
swered the last charge by sub
mitting a statement of the policy
of administering novacain to in
jured football players, at a re
cent meeting of the Board of Re
gents. In his policy statement, Dr.
Fuuenning asserted that if un
authorized use of novacain oc
curred it happened more than
two years ago. He said that a
former trainer, who is not asso
ciated with the University now,
may have used novacain.
Kemper said in his letter that
the regents can send a stenog
rapher to the Feb. 27 meeting
with complete confidence that
what he has to say was origin
ally intended for their ears.
