Sends Fresh Armies
To Battle of Suchow
NANKING, Nov. 17—(AP)—China’s high command, as
serting the communists already have lost 90,000 men, sent
fresh armies into the battle of Suchow today.
The nightly communique of the defense ministry claimed
more than half the communist veterans who mounted the ma
jor assault east of Suchow had been killed or wounded.
(On the other hand, the communist radio said nine govern
ment divisions were ‘ wiped
out”, including the 63rd and
107th armies. That could be
90,000 men. Both sides are in
clined to exaggerate casual
Most Chinese sources doubt
ed that the Suchow "victory” was
all the newspapers said it was.
The official Chinese Central
News Agency contradicted its own
earlier reports on one phase of the
Suchow battTe. It said communists
were attacking the city from three
sides—south, southwest and south
east. Fighting was reported in vil
lages seven miles from the city lim
Only yesterday Central News
said the Reds were fleeing south of
Suchow. But its latest dispatch
credited the communists with
mounting two divisions in that sec
tor. It also told of a “furious bat
tle” east of the city where the Reds
supposedly had been routed.
But it appeared Generalissimo
Chiang Kai-Shek’s forces in the op

They did it with the surprise use
of a tank column and all-out sup

miles to the south, bombing and
Both sides are gathering strength
for the second phase.
Afternoon newspapers said troops
under Gen. Liu Ju-Ming, moving
north from the Nanking area, had
joined units attacking the com
munists who have encircled Suh
sien, 50 miles south of Suchow.
This is a sensitive point. Suhsien
lies on the railway connecting Su
chow with Nanking. The commun
ists are supposed to hold 30 miles of
the line. The loss of Suhsien (which
the communists say they have tak

Dr. Zenon Szatrowski, associate
professor of economics, will deliv
er a paper in Cleveland on Decem
ber 30 at a joint conference of the
Economics association, American
Statistical association, and the
Econometrics society, December
“Oscillatory Models in Measur
ing Persistency Characteristics of
Economic Time Series” will be the
title of Dr. Szatrowski’s paper. His
idea is to extract information from
the past behavior of time series
which is useful in projecting cycli
cal patterns in the future. A time
series, Dr. Szatrowski explained,
is a series of production or price
figures over a long period of time.
His paper will be concerned with
no particular period, but will be
largely in a theoretical sense.
Information of this kind is very
useful to the businessman in plan
ning business and investment poli
cies and inventory problems, and
is of interest to the economist.
Dr. Szatrowski expects to ad
dress from 30 to 50 delegates in
his group. About 2000 economists,
statisticians, businessmen, and
graduate students from all over
the United States will attend the
conference, he said.

Business Booms in 'PX7;
Not a BA, Says Hageman
Few small businesses confined to
a room seven by ten have a monthly
gross income of $1200. Hageman’s
P-X located in Vet’s dorm I has.
Carrying all of the commodities
its name implies, the little store was
started as a convenience to the
students in the dorms with perhaps
a little pecuniary interest on the
part of owner-operator Grant Hage

Opened in the fall of 1947, “Hage
man’s” has done a thriving business
in snacks for late evening chomping,
in magazines, pocket books, tobac
co, and lately, laundry and cleaning
service. A seasoned veteran of the
dorms can readily forecast hash on
the common’s menu by measuring
the line in front of Hageman’s.
When there’s hash the line is long.
Competition in advertising is rife
between Hageman and his competi
tor, “Energetic” Tom Burbee in
dbrm II. Placards and posters adorn
bulletin boards and bare walls
throughout the dorms and the pas
sageways in the commons.
That some of the P-X advertising
is ingenious is well illustrated in one
of the latest posters. When the new
Esquire calendar came out this fall,
Hageman notified his patrons of
their availibility thusly:
“Esquire calendars, small chintz
size; 35c; large super size; 50c.
.. Proprietor Hageman reports most
of his sales in this item were of the
large super size. Snob appeal ?

for a downtown laundry and clean

dixes in the dorms that he has^soap

Two steady employees alternate
with the owner in waiting on custo
mers. Only-one man can work be
tween the shelf lined, refrigerator
filled room and at most, two or
three cutomers can crowd into the
room with him.
At least one of these will be read

to refrain from the free reading
privilege. Some of the issues of
