Pearson of Canada.
Awarded Nobel Prize
OSLO, NORWAY (A") - Lester B. Pearson, former Canadian for-
eign secretary, has been awarded the 1957 Nobel Peace Prize.
The prize amounts to $40,275.
In the United Nations last fall Pearson spearheaded a campaign
to bring peace totthe Middle East, where Britain and France had
joined Israel in an attack on Egypt.
Largely as a result of Pearson's activity a UN emergency force
was organized to separate the belligerents. This force still is on duty
in the Gaza area.

tions which brought the Conservative Party to power in Canada,
sweeping out the Liberals. He said %-

The current Asian Flu epidemic reached a new high on campus
yesterday according to Dr. Morley Beckett, Health Service Director.
For the first time since the epidemic began over a week ago a
few infirmary patients were transferred to University Hospital to
afford more space in Health Service Infirmary.
Dr. Beckett said that this measure was set up with the hospital-
weeks ago in event that Health Service became too crowded to handle
all students in need of infirmary treatment. "It is nip and tuck for
beds," he added.
