U.N. Troops Advance;
Russ Jet Planes Seen
Compiled by John Barton
From the Wires of Associated Press
Korean fighting is assuming a whirlpool shape today, with
United Nations forces slashing north in some places and North
Korean Communists continuing to drive south in others. United
States tank-led 24th divisions troops are pushing to with 19
miles of the Manchurian border in one spot. But on the northest
front, other U.S. troops are having a tough battle with Reds
about 51 miles from the Manchurian frontier.
Russian-Built Jet Fighters.. .
... were in action over Korean skies yesterday. They tangled in a dog
fight with U.S. airforce P-51s, but the fight was a draw. And when they
decided to leave, the Communist-marked planes flew north over the
Manchurian border. This may indicate that their homes are in Man
churia—Red China may be adding air power to its ground forces in the
Invasion of Tibet. . .
... has been admitted by Communist China. This may be one reason
they are going into the Korean fight rather slowly. The Peiping radio
yesterday said Red Forces have cgptured Changtu (Chamdo). That’s
about 100 miles inside what generally is considered to be Tibet. It’s about
360 miles from the Tibetan capital city of Lhasa. And 4,000 Tibetan
troops were killed in the fight for the city.
India Doesn't Approve. . .
... of Red China’s attitude of going into Tibet. An official spokesman
for the Indian government has said that his nation is not satisfied with
reasons given for the Chinese invasion of Tibet. The reasons were the us
ual “liberation”'of Tibet from capitalistic aggressors who would use the
little mountain state as a base for attacks on China.
Trygve Lie Will Continue...
,., as secretary-general of the U.N. for three more years after his term
expires in February. Lie’s term has been extended by the U.N. general
assembly despite Soviet bloc protests that be will not be recognized by
the Soviet. The vote was 46 to 5, with 7 abstentions, the U.S. had con
tended (and won its point) that Lie should be kept in office as an expres
sion of confidence for the way he handled the Korean situation.
The security council of the U.N. had tried to handle the matter, but
Russian vetoes forced it into the general assembly for a vote. Soviet For
eign Minister Andrei Vishinsky has said that if Lie gets a new term,
Which he has, he will not be recognized by Russia. Whether the Reds will
support this bluff won’t be known until the new term starts in February.
Vietmihn Pressure. . .
... on French forces in Indochina is being relaxed, French sources say.
There is no explanation for the rather sudden stoppage of hard fighting
Which has been going on for several weeks, ever since the Red-supported
natives sprang their trap on French forces. The outpost of Laokay has
suddenly been given a rest, although three to four Vietmihn battalions
are thought to be in the area.
George Bernard Shaw. . .
... is near death in England. At last word yesterday an Anglican
Clergyman had come from his bedside and said that, although the famous
playwrite claims to be an atheist, “he believes in God.” Shaw is said to be
quite low, although there was no change for several hours yesterday.
Deceased King Gustav V...
... of Sweden is said to have left an estate amounting to about three
million dollars. That's about 15 million Swedish crowns. This report,
carried in the newspaper Aftonbladet, has no official confirmation from
the Swedish government. Gustav died Sunday at the age of 92. Much of
the estate will go into legacies and pensions, the newspaper said.
Progress in North Atlantic Defense. . .
. , . meetings has been made, according to U. S. Secretary of State
Acheson. A positive blueprint for the contribution of forces and weapons
by each nation has been formulated. French objections of a German army
were finally ironed out, after a three-day hold-up. All the North Atlantic
Pact nations, Acheson says, agree that there must be no German national
army, no German war industry and no German general staff. The world
is still touchy about Germany.
An Atom Bomb Aircraft Carrier. ..
.. . has been proposed in Washington by Rep. Vinson (D-Ga.)., chair
man of the House armed services committee. He wants immediate con
struction of a GO,000-ton aircraft carrier designed to handle planes carry
ing atom bombs. The biggest carriers now in service by the navy are of
the 45,000-ton class. But a recent report said a plane capable of carry
ing atom bombs landed on a carrier of this class. Authorities figure the
proposal will get little opposition in Congress, regardless of the outcome
Release of Naval Reserves...
«... starting next year, was announced yesterday by the navy. Enlisted
men will start leaving the service in July and officers will go in October.
Those reservists to be released are men who will have been recalled to
active duty involuntarily by the end of this year. But the navy cautioned
that it will continue to call up reservists “for the forsecable future." The
release plans will let go about 0,000 men and 1,500 officers.
The campus Community Chest
drive continues to roll with house
representatives taking the cam
paign into the individual living or
ganizations, Georgie Oberteuffer,
campus chairman, reported today.
“Remeber that there are only
seven days of the drive left,” Miss
Oberteuffer cautioned. “The en
tire campus will have to get be
hind the drive and work hard if
we are to complete our quota with
in the time limit.”
No quota has been set for indi
viduals, but Miss Oberteuffer
asks that everyone contribute to
the appeal, no matter how small
the amount. “We want everyone
to give,” she stated.
Contribution booths are avail
able in the SU and in the Co-op for
those who have not been contact
ed by Community Chest represent
atives. Cash gifts are not neces
sary as pledges are equally ac
The campus quota of $4,000 is
the same as last year’s, but a smal
ler student body will make it nec
essary for all students to give more.
Flying speeches, posters, and
assembly announcements are being
used to publicize the drive and it
is hoped that house soliciting may
be completed within the next few

dent Union and the dedication pro
ceedings,” Miss Clerin said.
The program will include music,

Phi Theta Upsilon, Druids, and
Skull and Dagger, service honorar
ies, will help in the self-service sys

For UO Talent
Don’t miss your chance to “get
in the act.”
Two auditions will be held for
campus entertainers Tuesday in
the Student Union.
Gerry Pearson, campus enter
tainment chairman, explained that
these auditions, which will be Md
at 4 and 7 p.m. are just for Hie
purpose of establishing files.
“Acts don’t have to be in shape,”
she said. “If your act is just ten
tative, then bring the idea. If you
can’t come to either of the audi
tions, please let me know by
phone so that I can get your name
in the file.”
Miss Pearson especially wants
to see freshmen who are inter
ested in entertaining. She said
that she would work with them
in arranging and developing their
“Since campus entertainers play
before audiences both on and off
the campus, a great variety is
needed,” she said. “Groups, musi
cal acts, instrumentalists, solo
acts, and M. C.’s can be used, just
to name a few.”
Miss Pearson, who was appoint
ed to the entertainment post by
the Executive Council Monday,
will be expected to furnish talent
at a moments notice.
“That’s why the file is so vital
ly important,” she said.
“Please don’t be backward.
There won’t be any criticism at
the auditions, and they will be held
privately. We know that no one
will be in top form.”
To Run Today
“They Met in Moscow,” dv^gsd
the Russian “Oklahoma” becaSTse
of its folk tunes and comical
drama, will be shown at 3:30 p.m,
today in 101 PE, and at 7:30 p.m.
in 207 Chapman under the aus
pices of the Russian Arts Club.
The 86-minute movie has been
acclaimed from an artistic view
point as one of the best Russian
movies made. Nevertheless it is
saturated with Russian propagan
da. It was released from the Soviet
Union in 1946.
Admission tickets for 35 cents
will be sold at the door. Permis
sion will be granted to freshmen
women who wish to attend.
Clubs Meet Tonight
