announced the inquiry. Similar
check-ups for the Navy and Ai
Force are probable later.
Some of the answers Vinson
wants came out about the time
\of his announcement.
Col Daniel O. Omer, General
Cousel of Selective Service, said
all the manpower needs now in
sight can be met from the present
19 through 25 age group if some
of the rules are relaxed.
* *
HE SAID it would take drafting
r of childless married men and vete-
rans of World War II, and taking
4-F's for military duties in which
their disabilities would not inter-
fere, to build up and maintain a

3,000,000 man army within those
age limits.
He said the armed services are
turning down half of the men
sent them through the draft,
and on that basis figured draft
boards will have to send up
2,400,000 by next June 30. That,
he said, would furnish the 1,200,-
000 men needed to build the ser-
vices up to their goal of 3,000,-
The colonel figured that after
the 3,000,000-man strength is
reached, the draft will have to
provide 100,000 a month to main-
tain it.

Campus Cartoons
"We're beginning to breathe
again, and we need cartoons based
on campus situations," Bob Uchi-

clared yesterday in sounding a call
for student help.
"What we want are cartoons and

long study of the entire question
of freshmnen participation in ex-
tra-curricular activities.
AT THE END of the year a defi-
nite and final decision will prob-
ably be made concerning freshmen
eligibility in all campus groups.
The new change in the eligi-
bility rulings came about as a
result of a petition presented to
SAC by Roy Duff, president of
the Men's Glee Club and Prof.
f Philip Duey, director.
A similar petition presented by
both glee clubs last spring was re-
fused by the SAC.
* * *
AS A RESULT, of yesterday's
meeting the committee expects
further petitions from other stu-
dent organizations 'asking for the
lifting of the ban on their group.
Each petition will be carefully
considered, a decision reached as
to the validity of each request
and permission granted or re-
fused, according to an SAC
When informed of SAC's favor-
able answer to their petition Duff
expressed his appreciation and a
hope that in the future the com-
mittee would see fit to extend
freshmen eligibility to other cam-
pus groups.
freshmen eligibility rulings have
assumed an "on again, off again"
Three years ago freshmen
were not allowed to participate
in any extra-curricular student
Two years ago this rule was re-
laxed in order to allow the March-
ing Band and the Men's and Wo-
men's Glee Clubs to have first se-
mester freshmen in their groups.
Last spring new rulings were
announced refusing the freshmen
eligibility privilege to the glee
NOW FRESHMEN eligibility is
a wide open campus question.
In petitioning for the lifting
of the restriction the Glee Club,
pointed out that the actual
amount of time spent each week
in rehearsals amounted to only
four hours per week.
The officers of the group, how-
ever, feeling that the formerad-
vance rulings might have kept
some freshmen from coming, have
announced a continuation of try-

SIDEWALK CONTRACTORS--These students formed a part of the crowd which watched the last
remains of the south portion of Haven Hall come crashing to the ground yesterday afternoon. The
job was done by a huge swinging weight attached by a cable to a crane. Each particularly well-
aimed blow of the maul brought cheers from the crowd and clouds of brick dust from the wreckage.
Looking at the 'wreckage, then at his watch and then at the crisp new textbooks tucked under
his arm, one of the sidewalk superintendents assumed a somewhat worried look. "Gee," he .said
with great seriousness, "for my average's sake I hope this wrecking is all done by midsemesters."
He thought about that for a minute and then wandered off in the direction of the 'U' Hall site to
find out what was being wrecked there.

THE COMMITTEE issued more
than a dozen summonses for per-
sons to testify. - An authoritative
source said they included:
Jack Guzik, John Patton,
former "boy mayor" of Burn-*
ham; Tony Accardo, alias Joe
Batters, former Capone aide; the
three Fischetti brothers, Char-
les, Rocco and- Joe, cousins of
Al Capone; Phil Katz and Hy-
mie "Loudmouth" Levin.
There was new evidence, mean-
while, of a possible link in the
two killings.
THE VICTIMS, killed last night
about four hours apart, were Wil-
liam J. Drury, 48 years old, a
former police lieutenant once
known as "the watchdog of the
loop," and Marvin J. Bas, 45 years
old, a lawyer.
Luis Kutner, prominent Chi-
cago lawyer, told newsmen yes-

from Kutner's office Aug. 18,
making an appointment to meet
him immediately to "talk about

Kiorea Unity
NEW YORK-(AP)-Britain has
taken over the task of finding a
solution to the Korean war and
"maintaining the impressive uni-
ty" of allied forces in the closing
phases of the campaign, an in-
formed source said last night.
He said Britain has written the
draft of a resolution which would
call on the United Nations General
Assembly to:
1. Establish an independent,
united Korea.
2. Continue to furnish assis-
tance to repel an armed attack.
3. Establish a democratic gov-
ernment in all Korea elected
under United Nations supervi-
4. Set up a new United Nations
commission, stronger than any,
established previously, to make
sure the U.N.'s recommendations
were obeyed.
The source refused to say, when
directly questioned, whether the
United Nations, or the United
States, would order United Nations
forces acting under Gen.. Mac-
Arthur, to cross the 38th parallel
and occupy all Korea.
* * * , . -
WHEN IT WAS pointed out to
him that all the provisions of the
proposed British resolution envi-
sion a united Korea, which could
be achieved only by military ac-
tion or unconditional North Ko-
rean surrender, he agreed that
stopping at the 38th parallel would
lead to "inconclusive and indl-
cisive results," but insisted that
the problem was a military one
and not for discussion in the U.N.
An American' source said the
United States had not yet deter-
mined whether it would act as
co-sponsor of the resolution

forces today locked armored
hands from liberated Seoul to
Pusan in extreme southeast
Korea in a dramatic linkup that
promised to shatter the disor-
ganized North Korean Army.
Tanks of the U.S. First Cavalry
Division speeding northward met
armored patrols of the U.S. Sev-
enth Division between Suwon and
Osan, 30 miles south of Seoul at
11:20 p.m. yesterday.

IN EFFECT, the linkup turned
the Korean war into a giant mop-
ping-up operation.
American intelligence officers
estimated that 100,000 North
Koreans, the bulk of the Com-
munist army, were caught in
the trap.
Although the linkup did not
stretch a solid line of American
troops from Taegu in the Sout-
east to Osan, it did sever most of
the possible routes of Red escape.
HOURS LATER, savage house-
to-house combat still raged
through its flaming streets.

sion infantrymen and the South

preferred death to surrender.
The remainder of the garrison
was in flight to the north.
Three counterattacks were bro-
ken up last night inside Seoul, two
of them by the Marine First Divi-
sion and the other by the Seventh
Division. The attacking Red
forces were destroyed. An esti-
mated 650 Korean Reds were cap-
HUNDREDS of North Koreans
were slain in the convulsive fight-
ing. About 1,800 died in 36 hours
of combat in one northwest sec-
tor alone.
Flames from burning struc-
tures lighted the path for Ma-
rines fighting their way toward
the American Embassy near
Duk Soo Palace in the heart of
Seoul. J
Marines used 90 millimeter
guns of Pershing Tanks, 3.5 ba-
zookas and bulldozers to press
through strhet barricades.
The night sky was aglow with
fires. It lit up weirdly the smoke-
filled streets where Marines'

the ground after fires gutted
them. The Americans were not
sparing any building where the
Reds had built up strong points.
