Mopping up operations began Thursday, after a Wednesday
attempt on President Truman’s life. A Federal Grand Jury in
vestigation of the attempted assassination was indicated late
Thursday with the issuance of Grand Jury subpoenaes to three
persons. They were not identified.
A murder charge was placed against Oscar Collazo, the only
surviving gunman of the pair that forced the plot, and he was
moved to another hospital room Thursday under police guard,
probably to protect his life. His wife, Mrs. Rosa Collazo has been
accused of conspiracy in the assassination attempt.
In San Juan, Puerto Rico, police seized Pedro Albizu Campos,
head of the U. S.-hating Nationalist party, and began a roundup
of top communists in that country. And President Truman cab
led Governor Luis Munoz Marin of Puerto Rico, his congratula

The President also appointed Nelson Rockefeller as managing
director of the Point Four program for aid to under-developed areas,
and E. Roland Harrimao, brother of Averell Harriman, as pre
sident of the American National Red Cross.
He also told the conference that it would be a long, long time be

He charged the Soviet Union does not want the world to establish
any form of effective collective defense measures, and said:
“We hope the lesson of Korea will be learned and that no further
aggression will occur. This resolution should make aggression less

Should there be a fall term rush
ing and pledging program for
In a Wednesday afternoon meet
ing the Inter-Dormitory Council
set up a tentative plan for fall
term rushing and pledging of
freshman men. The preliminary
outline calls for an eight-day rush
ing period ending before Nov. 22,
1950. At the present time the first
men’s rushing and pledging pro
gram is scheduled for the first
part of winter term. The dorm
council’s plan is now being con
sidered by the Inter-Fraternity
Today’s poll indicated that cam
pus opinion is divided on the ques
tion of holding a men’s rushing
program fall term. Opponents of
the plan expressed the feeling that
freshmen should have a longer
period of time to become acquaint
ed with the campus and cautioned
against changing the plan in an
attempt to appease freshman ath
letes. Those favoring the program
called it a step toward better
campus relationships, pointing out
that freshman should be adult
enough to make wise decisions in
their choice of fraternities.
Bob Anderson—freshman in pre
med—“It’s a good idea. I don’t like
not being able to talk to my friends
who are fratrenity men. There
should have been a rush week at
the beginning of fall term.”
Tom Huebner—junior in liberal
arts—“The original plan was set
up to benefit all the freshmen
scholastically. The idea of fall
rushing now is altered so that the
athletic faction is benefited. If the
plan was good to begin with, it
should be followed through; if it
is no good, it should be dropped
Denny Sullivan—junior in f. ±^.
_“I think we should have a fall
rushing period. We have lost a lot
of athletes, and other students,
because of the fact that they
couldn’t join a house.’
Carl Borg—senior in architec
ture—“I believe that freshman
should be able to pledge this term.
They are old enough to make a
wise decision without the benefit
of the'longer waiting period.”
Harriet Oliver—sophomore in
pre-nursing—“I think that fresh
man men should not be allowed to
pledge until winter term. If they
waited they could make a better
choice of fraternities.’
John Faust Jr.—sophomore in
pre-law—“I’m a transfer from
Michigan. At Michigan the frater
nities follow a hands-off policy
until the middle of fall term, when
they have a rush week. There have
never been any complaints about
the system there.”
Jo Curry—freshman in liberal
arts—"I think the' fall rushing
plan is fine. By this program*we
might be able to keep our fresh
Joyce Wilson— senior in art—
“I don’t feel that rushing is that
important. Equally valuable bene
fits can be obtained when living in
an independent group as when liv
ing in a fraternity. It is a matter
of good sportsmanship for the
freshman athletes to accept defer
red living. I don’t see why the
rushing program shouldn’t begin
Byron Tarr—freshman in busi
should wait until winter term to
rush. Once the rule is set up, it
should be followed. It shouldn’t be
changed because of the athletes.
Next year a new system could be
