The Outside World
By DICK RALSTON
Russian Prime Minister Georgi Malenkov resigned his post Tues
day, admitting his "lack of experience" had held back economic
development of the country. Defense Minister Nikolai Bulganin was
named three hours later by the Supreme Soviet (the Russian parlia
ment) as his successor.
News of Malenkov's resignation was received by diplomats of the
U.S. and Western Europe as a surprise, but without shock. It is gen
erally expected that the move marks the end of "committee rule,"
which has prevailed since the death of Joseph Stalin.
Malenkov had held the premiership for one year and 11 months.
He has been assigned to other unspecified duties and has promised to
"carry them out faithfully."
The evacuation of Chinese Nationalist troops and civilians from
the Tachen Islands has received no interference from nearby Com
munist artillery or aircraft. Civilians have been given first priority
and are being loaded into fourteen Nationalist ships assigned to the
In addition to the Tachens, lying about 200 miles north of Formosa
and about 14 miles from the Chinese mainland, the Yushans and
Pish an will also be cleared. In all, about 40,000 troops and civilians
are involved. . ,
Dulles Doubts War
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles told the Senate Foreign
Relations Committee that ratification of a defense treaty with Nation
alist China would make the position of the United States clear, and
might cool off the tough-talking Chinese Reds.
Dulles said he doubted that the Chinese Communists really wanted
to go to war with the U.S., and that Senate approval of the treaty
backed up the already adopted policy to defend Formosa.
The committee is considering the mutual defense treaty signed by
the U.S. and Nationalist China Dec. 2, in which the United States
pledged its aid "in accordance with itsconstitutional procedures" if
Communist forces should attack Formosa or the Pescadores Islands.
Tariff Program Heard
President Eisenhower's tariff program was the subject of a sharp
clash In the House Ways and Means Committee as the committee
ended public hearings on the program and headed for a closed-door
showdown on extension of the Reciprocal Trade Agreements Act.
. The President has asked Congress to extend the law for another
three years and to broaden his authority to carry out tariff cuts as a
means of encouraging world trade. Democratic leaders predict that
the bill will be watered down before it is sent to the floor.

Nebraska Masquers Present
Comedy On College Lovers
"Charley's Aunt," a comedy
about college lovers presented by
the Nebraska Masquers, will open
at Arena Theater, third floor of
Temple Building Wednesday at 8
p.m. and will run through Feb.
Since final exams, tickets have
been moving rapidly, but there are
many seats available, according to
Bill Walton, director of the play.
Tickets may be purchased from
any member of Ma?quers for SI.
As far as it is known, this is
the first time that "Charley's
Aunt" has been produced in arena
stage. The arena stage makes spec
tators almost feel that they are
part of the play because of their
closeness to the actors and ac
tresses on stage.
Strange incidents sometimes re
sult from this "close up view."
During the guest performance,
which was held last Saturday
night Lord Fancourt knocked Spet
tigue's hat into the lap of a mem
ber of the audience. The result:
Impromptu audience participation.
"Live goldfish have minor swim

rector Bill Walton. Another feature
of the show is that the president's
personal representative, Marv Stro
mer, changes costume on stage.

"Charley's Aunt" is a story
about two students who invite
their girl friends over to visit a
wealthy aunt from Brazil. The
aunt, however, is unable to come
and meet the girls, so the boy
force another male student to dress
up in black lace and pose as Char
ley's rich aunt. Then the boys in
troduce her to their sweethearts.
About that time, the real aunt
turns up, but instead of exposing
the imposter, she decides to just
sit back and watch the "fun."

Jackson stated that his own person
al opinion was not to uphold either
the Chinese Communists or Nation
alists. Anderson said that the United
States' position in international af
fairs should be dominated by long
term economic aid, patience, hu
mility and understanding, backed
by national strength.
This country doesn't have the will
to win an all-out war at the pres
ent, Anderson said. He feels that
in the future the United States will
make concessions to Red China
and Formosa will be delivered to
the Communist Chinese.
Jackson stated that our defense
of Formosa was part of a Chinese
diplomatic squeeze play to alien
ate this country from the rest of
Asia, which feels that Formosa
should go to the Chinese mainland.
On British - American relations,
Jackson said that the two coun
