gave the publicity which followed
his meeting in Chicago with Ne

to permit the Board of Regents
to talk in confidence with men the
Board is seeking to interest in

"The Board of Regents invited
nine educators to meet with it ih
Chicago last weekend after the

For the purposes of the test, it will be assumed that the
United States and Alaska will be attacked by aircraft carrying
atomic weapons. Also it will be supposed that guided missiles

"Paris," she said, "is usually
the most interesting part of

them because they offer a view
of the real Paris."

visited France on a European
tour last year added some com
