Have you Literary College students got any gripes or suggestions
about your college?
If you have, now is the time to get them off your chest. And there
is a good chance that something may be done about them through The
Daily's "If I were Dean of the Literary College" contest.
Student suggestions are slowly trickling into The Daily, as the
contest goes into its third day.
The best ideas will be reprinted in the columns of The Daily
and all suggestions and complaints will be forwarded to Dean Hay-
wadd Kenniston who last week said he would welcome any ideas
from students on the curriculum of the Literary College.

His emphasis on this was
viewed as a direct answer to

and other economic problems.
He said McCloy has the full con-

these thrusts have to be met where

United States and Western Pow-
ers called on the Soviet Union yes-

hate" and cooperate in a 12-point
program for peace.
Warren . Austin, chief United
States delegate, put before the
59-nation Political Committee of
the U.N. Assembly a joint U.S.-
British resolution reaffirming be-

quickly endorsed the resolution.
AUSTIN DEMANDED that the'
political committee kill forthwith
a three-point resolution presented
by Soviet Foreign Minister Andrei
Austin said if Vishinsky want-
ed to cooperate with the world
the Soviet resolution was not
necessary; if he did not intend
to cooperate, another peace pact
among the five Great Powers-
the United States, Russia, Bri
tain, France and China-would
be a mockery.

vious feeling, Austin gave this
peace recipe to Vishinsky and the

France and Canada for the six

The committee turned down the
Soviet proposal for the 11-nation
atomic energy commission to re-
sume its suspended meetings and
work out atomic conventions along
lines of the Soviet plan.
The vote on the principal part
of the Soviet resolution was 43
against, 6 for and 9 abstaining.
This plan has been turned down
before by the Assembly and the
Atomic Energy Commission.
