to Dr. G. W. Rosenlof, Dean of
Admissions, who accepted the flag
for the University.
Feb. 16 is the Lithuanian count
erpart of the American Fourth of
July, with the exception that Lith
uania lost its independence again
at the close of World War II when
the Russian Army occupied the
country and other Baltic cations,
Latvia and Lithuania.
The countries were annexed by
force as Soviet Socialist Republics,
a status which is not recognized
by the "United States.
Alminas explained that the pre
sentation was on behalf of six
University students from Lithu-
principals by everyone, she added.
Communism Is result of a
world which has failed to meet the
ieeds of the people, Dr. Seabury
said. Half of the human race is

- All the things which symbolize
the lost independence, such as the
national flag and anthem, are
banned and to observe them means
death or exile, Alminas said. Be
cause of this, the symbols have a
deep significance for Lithuanians
in the free world.
"Its true significance," Alminas
said, "lies in the faith that the
Communist conspiracy like the to
talitarian governments preceeding
it cannot survive and that some
time the day again wiU be cele
brated in .its full significance."
BecSuse of Dr. Rosenlof's assist

The Outside World
US 'Alert
Staff Writer
Secretary of State John Foster Dulles bas warned Red China that
the United States will be -"alert" to defend Quemoy and Matsu Islands
if the Communists try to use them for an invasion of Formosa. If
what was caUed a major policy address, Dulles said the United States
was not interested in the islands 'as such", however, and he appealled
to Peiping to solve the Formosa crisis peacefuny.
Secretary Dulles made three other main points in bis address to
the Foreign Policy Association of New York.
He rejected the idea that Nationalist China voluntarily surrender
the offshore islands, a proposal favored by some British officials. He
said ""it is doubtful that this would serve either peace or freedom."
DuUes also advanced the opinion that the upheaval in Moscow
which gave the premiership to Nikolai Bulganin was ""an elemental
personal struggle for power." But he added that it may also reflect
a "basic policy difference" between the Russian Communist Party and
the Soviet Government.
Fear among Asian people that the United States bas no real
intention of supporting them in opposition to communism "'has mounted
to the danger point," he claimed.

As 'Political Fact1
Dr. William Jordan, officer of
the United Nations, is a specialist
in the political affairs of the Se
curity Council. He is chief of a
section in the Department of Po
litical Security Council Affairs,
In a Nebraskan interview Thurs
day, be said that even if the veto
power of the Security Council was
abolished, the divided decisions of
the Council could not be enforced.
"The veto is something that ex
ists as a political fact in the
world," the former university lec
turer and tutor stated. Even
though this fact were to be abol
ished, the unanimous decisions of
the Security Council would stfll
make this fact remain."
Dr. Jordan explained it would
be ""unrealistic" to abolish the veto
power of the Council
Actions by nations depend on
the political forces of the time, not
on decisions of the Security Coun
cil the London4)orn author said.
Americans tend to misconceive
the principle of the veto because
they compare the Security Council
with the Congress, Dr, Jordan
said. When Congress and the Pres
ident approve a law, it is enforced.
The Security Council bas no power
to back up its decisions, Dr. Jor
dan commented.
It was "an accident"" that inter
