Arms Plan Accepted
The nine-power conference on freeing and rearming Germany
Thursday approved a compromise plan for establishing and controlling
European arms pool, according to a German spokesman.
The plan would divide responsibility for safeguarding German
rearmament between a new seven-nation European alliance and the
North Atlantic Treaty Organization.
. The spokesman said the plan presented by Belgium Foreign Min
ister Paul-Henri Spaak was approved by German Chancellor Adenauer
and French Premier Mendes-France and was also acceptable to the
other delegates.
Guided Missile In Production
A new long-range guided missile is being added to the Army's
arsenal along with an increase in the number of its combat-equipped
oi visions and the buying of more tanks.
The new guided missile, called Redstone, has gone into limited
production. Presumably it, like others of its type, will be capable
of carrying an atomic warhead. ,. . .
Quick expansion of five training divisions into combat divisions
has been announced as part of a program to add to the Army's
organizational numbers without increasing its total manpower.
Atomic Nautilus Launched
The USS Nautilus, the world's first atomic-powered submarine, was
commissioned Thursday at Groton, Conn. The commissioning inaugu
rated what Adm. Jerauld Wright called America's "new navy.
"' Wright commander-in-chief of the Atlantic Fleet, said the subma
rine was the beginning of an eventual all atomic-powered fleet. Such
a fleet would give the United States naval superiority needed to combat
the "growing Communist menace to the freedom of the world, Adm.
Wright said.

YWCA To Benefit;
Charities Backed
Almost all of the money the Com
munity Chest collects stays in Lin
coln and benefits Lincoln families.
Much of the money is spent at
the University as Community Chest
gives the University YMCA and
YWCA $8,000 apiece each year.
The college unit of Red Cross is a
part of the larger organization sup
ported by the Community Chest.
MUCH OF the Chest's financial
aid is given for food, shelter, cloth
ing and medical care to needy
residents of Lincoln.
Phyllis Colbert, AUF president
stressed the local use of the money
and said, "The Lincoln Communi
ty Chest provides a local touch to
AUF's group of charities."
Cancer will be supported by AUF
for the eleventh time in 11 years
of AUF existence.
Miss Colbert pointed out that
cancer is the number two killer
in the United States and is, at the
present time, incurable. "Prog
ress in research is being made,
however," she said.
FIFTEEN per cent of last year's
20 per cent of AUF's funds went
to Donald Pace, University direc
tor of the Institute of Cell Growth,
for a Beckman spectrophotometer
to be used for research, and five
per cent of the total was sent to
the American Cancer Association.
"This year," Miss Colbert said,
"the full amount will be given to
the national association and will
amount to 20 per cent of the funds
we raise this year.
