South Korean forces are driving forward near the Yalu River
today. That’s the border between Korea and Manchuria. Com
munist resistance is described as being practically non-existant.
It looks like the end of the four-month-old Korean war between
Democracy and Communism.

army can handle any Communist guerrilla activity which may
arise from Red remnanats which have been cut off without re
No Elections for Korea...
... are advocated by Rhee, who says now that the war is over, there
is no need for the United Nations to take over until elections are held.
But he hinted he might want to hold elections later. Rhee doesn’t agree
with the U. N. on this point. The U. N. tentative plan is to take control
of the country, then hold elections and set the entire nation up under con
trol of whatever government is elected by the people.

things in our high living standard to keep peace in the world—including
the United States . More aggressive designs are on the way, Vishinsky

Coke dances could be a success
on the University of Oregon cam
That was the prevailing opinion
expressed by students polled on
the question, “What do you think
about the proposed Wednesday
evening coke dance program, and
would you attend the dances if
they were instituted?’’
The coke dance plan, which was
presented at last week’s regular
Student Union Board meeting,
calls for a coke dance from 9:30
to 10:30 p.m. on open Wednesdays.
The dances would take place in
the soda bar area of the SU with
chairs and tables being pushed
back to make the necessary room.
Square dancing, conventional
dancing and special entertainment
would occupy attention.
The general attitude of students
questioned today was favorable
toward the dance program. The
plan is now being considered by
the Student Affairs Committee.
Joan Blakely—sophomore in lib
eral arts—“I would come to a Wed
nesday evening dance. It would
help people to become acquainted,
especially freshman. No square
Howard Stinkard—freshman in
journalism—“I think its a good
d4al. I’d come—provided they let
the freshmen women out.”
Iceland Johnson—junior in busi
idea! I’d like to come. It will work
if a lot of girls attend, because
the boys will naturally be there.”
Miriam Goddard—freshman in
liberal arts—“I think that it
would be a very good idea. You
need a break during the week
from your studies. I’d certainly

liberal arts—“Probably I’d come.
I think that it’s a real good idea.

George Waliscr;—senior in law—
“I think they’re a good idea. The
dances would help break up the
monotony of school life. It would
be one way of getting kids into
the SU. I think that I’d come to
Don Robinson—freshman in lib
eral arts—“I think the program
is v/orth a try. I’d attend the
dances if they proved successful
in overcoming the natural inhibi
tions that people seem to have at
Pauline Olson—sophomore in
music—“Sure, I’d come. At Whit
man we had a coke dance every
Tuesday and it went over big.
Every once in awhile we had spe
cial entertainment which boosted
Dick Hanson—junior in social
psychology—“I think it would
work if we broke away from the
distorted attitude that if a girl
shows up at a mixer dance with
out a date, it’s because she can’t
get one. I would enjoy going to
such a dance very much if the
girls were willing to risk their
Jane Hande—freshman in lib
eral arts—“Smooth! I think that
it would be great. People would
leave the dorm and I could study.”
Eight students spent the week
end in the infirmary. These are
Norma Allen, Carol Broeren, Rob
ert Cox, James Hart, Dan Dan
iels, Grant McClellan, Maurice
Petriek, and Inez Pozzi-Escot.
