NANKING - (P) - The 1,000
wives and children of U. S. Mili-
tary personnel in China are being
sent home and all other American
civilians are being urged by the
embassy to leave the Shanghai-

In addition, Vice Adm. Oscar C.
Badger said in a news conference
in Shanghai that he might shift
some Marines from the Tsingtao
base to Shanghai, "but only as a

ADMIRAL BADGER, com-

fleet, said. "The Marines hold spe-
cial status and can land on a for-

by international law as interna--

(PACIFIC FLEET headquar-

American civilian evacuation did
not apply in Tsingtao, where there
are 1,015 Americans, mostly de-
pendents of service men. Admiral
Badger has said he could take
them all off in a few hours on a
single ship if the need arises.)
It appeared that the American
steps were taken only after the
embassy's military staff ad-
vised it that the Chinese gov-
ernment no longer had the
physical power to keep the war
away from the national capital.
Chinese spokesmen declined
public comment, but one high of-

port, is 13 miles up the Whang-

Dulles Says U.S. No Longer Disarming
PARIS-(P)-John Foster Dulles
told the Russian bloc today that
the United States has stopped
disarming and "intends to be
strong" so long as fears grip the
free peoples of the world.
From the tone and manner of
his speech it was apparent that a
firm American policy in the Unit-
ed Nations Assembly is shaping up
quickly after last Tuesday's Pres-
DULLES, the Republican party
adviser on foreign affairs, thus in-
dicated the election had not
changed in any way the general
foreign policy supported by both
Republicans and Democrats.
He denounced as "vicious
falsehoods" Russian charges
that the United States aims for
world mastery. Dulles told the
UN Political Committee:
"Our growing national strength
no doubt displeases some; but it
does not, I believe, frighten any.
I ask each delegate to search his
own mind and come to his own
conclusion as to who and what his
nation fears. I shall be satisfied
with a silent verdict, for sTknow
that some fear even to express
AMERICANS, Dulles said, make
no apology for their decision to
stop disarming "because our
strength is not for ourselves
alone." He added: "It is our pur-
pose so to unite and strengthen
the forces of freedom that they
will not have to fear."
Dulles spoke in a debate on the
Balkans. He said Americans had
organized "no disloyal groups, no
fifth columns, to do our will" in
Europe after withdrawing all but
a fragment of the huge armed
forces which fought in the war.
He said this was proof that the
United States has no aggressive

But one of the major reasons
for their unimpressive season is
the "suicide" schedule they face.
Of their nine games the Middles
must face six out of the top ten
teams in the land. They've al-

Dame, California, Penn, and
Missouri, who rate one, five, sev-
en and nine respectively.
They've also dropped close de-
cisions to Cornell, unbeaten until
Army knocked them off two weeks
ago, and Duke, one of the powers
of the Southeast.
NOW THEY FACE Michigan,
another contender for the mythi-
cal national title. The men who
made up this schedule must have
been Army grads.
Yet strangely enough the
Middies have scored in each
contest and have made real
fights of most of them. They
lost out to Penn in the closing
minutes and Cornell had to
come from behind to triumph,
NOW COACH Oosterbaan has
brought his squad up to another
peak and has them set for the last
three big games of the season.
With the worst over, and an un-

coaching staff and the team don't
want to see it disappear before one
of the lesser lights they face.
