Sam J. Stevens, manager of

on the wrist" at a meeting of Lan
caster County Commissioners Tues
day because of statements made in
a letter Stevens circulated among
fraternity presidents last week.
The letter, written to squelch
rumors concerning the possibility
of raids at Kings, insinuated Ste
vens had assurance from the State
Liquor Commission that there
would be no raids on Kings. At
the hearing Stevens said he meant
only that Kings had had no trou
ble. A second letter was drafted by
Stevens explaining the error in
the first letter. He said he had
not called upon the State Liquor
Commission as the first letter
stated, and that his statement as

The Outside World
i U.S. Escorts Considered
American aircraft flying near Communist territory might be given
fighter escorts, Secretary of State Dulles said.
The United States is currently considering this problem which is
now being studied by the Joint Chiefs of St.aif.
Dulles said the pilot shot down over Japanese waters Sunday had
the authority to shoot back, but he did not do so.
Judgment on the part of the plane's pilot was described by Dulles
as "one of those hairline decisions which people sometimes change

fact that the Soviets feel the need for justification, he continued, is
Prime Minister Churchill declared it would have been a better
thing if atomic and hydrogen bombs had never been developed.
It would not be within his power to make such a decision, he
said to the House of Commons. When the growth of nuclear weapons
should have stopped, Churchill did not know.
Time and again Sir Winston has maintained that American superi
ority in the development and building of atomic and hydrogen wea
pons has served as a sort of shield.
McCarthy And Censure . . .
Sua. McCarthy said Tuesday that he did not favor attempts to
form a filibuster to extend debate on the censure question until mid
night, Dec. 24, when the extra session will automatically die.
This statement was made, by McCarthy, after reporters told him
there were constant reports that some Senate friends wanted to save
him by extending the debate.
Sen. Barrett (R-Wyo), a staunch defender of McCarthy, said he
expects the Senate to decide the question and vote "probably near

there was no deal. He said the
letter went out without his check
ing it over.
Barney said the commissioners
do not want University students to
think they are special cases and
exempt from the possibility of a
raid. Drinking by minors is illegal
and subject to arrest, he said. Uni
versity students have "no immu
nity." He added that there would be
no raids on a place as long as it
was considered good. Arresting of
minors puts a "black mark" on a
place, he said.
Fritz Wagener, county attorney,
said that if a place became a trou
ble spot, "padlock procedure,"
used in the past on several West
Lincoln spots would be put into
Commissioner Russell Brthm,
presiding over the meeting, said
the insinuation in Steven's letter
came through poor wording. He
said Kings was "one of the best
operated places in the county."
J. Philip Colbert, Dean of Stu
dent Affairs, and Frank M. Hall
gren, Associate Dean, attended
the meeting from the University.
Colbert said the University was
interested in the matter because
the University is a sub-division of
state government, hence interested
in law enforcement.
Tal Coonrad, state liquor com
missioner, said he was concerned
mainly because the letter sent by
Stevens mentioned a visit with the
Both the county commissioners
and University officials said they
wished to "co-operate in this par

mainly an assurance that "there
has not and will not be any 'raids'
or 'arrests' at Kings." Stevens
said he had personally visited the
State Liquor Commission and
"came away satisfied that there
will be no raids on Kings."
