Prejudice Gets Fast Boot

preme Court can hand down any
other decision than abolition of
segregation in education."

ALTHOUGH THE University of
Oklahoma had accepted Negroes
before the Court's decision, the
Court ordered it to stop putting
Negroes in ante-rooms just out-
side classrooms.

in Texas is not a chapter of

On the lighter side of college
life, a brick wall standing next to
the Administration Building on
the University of Minnesota cam-
pus, not holding up any roof or
even having three other walls to
keep it company, brought confused
and witty remarks from passing
* * *
ONE SCHOLAR theorized that
the wall was a part of the Univer-
sity's campaign to see how inter-
ested students were in the condi-
tion of the campus. "There's prob-
ably a hidden microphone some-
where around it," he quipped.
Actually, patient construction
men explained, it was a sample
wall of a new building going up
on campus, undergoing a weath-
ering and fading test, and was
placed near the Administration
Building to compare the brick
type of both structures.
Pretty near home, but still light
years away in rivalry, was Michi-
gan State College, where student
editors of the MSC Spartan, cam-
pus funny book, sent Vice-Presi-
dent Alben Barkley a copy of their
latest effort at his Capitol Hill
The Veep "pulled a blank," but
was somewhat surprised at the
contents, 64 pages-all blank. The
editors had sent him a copy stap-
led together before the Spartan's
press run.
AND AT THE University of
Washington, nobody could be
found on campus who knew "for
sure" whether flappers in 1927
(AD) rolled their stockings or
A librarian told all, or almost
all: "I remember wearing stock-
ings but I don't recall how we
held them up," she said.
She explained that she was not
sure whether 1927 marked the be-
ginning of the girdle era or not.

RESEARCH ON HARBOR CONDITIONS-Civil engineers are studying the wave action at Hammond Bay using this model in the Lake
Hydraulics Laboratory at Willow Run. The work, being conducted fo~r the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, involves a long series of tests to
determine the best conditions for small boat harbors or "harbors of y efuge." Under the direction of Prof. Ernest F. Brater (standing), of
the University civil engineering department, the engineers have co mpleted studies of Port Sanilac and Port Austin. Their next assign-
ment will be a study of conditions at Point Lookout.

The question went around the
world last week.
It reached to every continent. It
hit home, especially, in the areas
nearest the Soviet sphere. In that
sweep of territory, from Scandina-
via down to the equator and up to
Alaska, theretwas the sense of be-
ing too close to a burning building.

DID THE fighting mean world
war III?
There was no answer, of course;
there were too many secrets be-
neath the onion-domed towers of
Moscow. There was only the hope,
in most places, that the fire de-
partment, sponsored by the UN
and guided by the U.S., had arriv-
ed in time to surround the burning
Associated Press correspon-
dents. found this hope mixed
with fear in the areas rubbing
shoulders with Russia and her
satellites. The United States,
taking the lead in assisting
South Korea, certainly had rais-
ed the confidence of many small
nations. But there was still the
question, in many minds, wheth-
er a Russian bluff had been call-
ed and a general war avoided.
Some, especially the Chinese
Nationalists at Formosa, insisted
the danger was greater than ever.

THE SURVEY showed that
o p i n i o n generally applauded
President Truman's action, even
in Communist Yugoslavia and
other lands where the governments
are trying to keep a position of
official neutrality in the Korean
Washington officials kept an
unusually sharp eye on intelli-
gence reports from the "rim"
countries on troop movements
and maneuvers. Conditions at
this time of the year are most
favorable for either actual mili-
tary operations or the usual
training exercises.
Here, starting with Finland and
reading from left to right, is a
survey of reaction in the areas on
the edge of Soviet influence-at
the end of a week that brought
the biggest war scare since Adolph
HELSINKI - Finland's average
man is inclined to believe that
President Truman's decision to
meet force with force in Korea was
the right approach.
Finnish official quarters are re-
luctant to make any comment be-
yond statements that Finland is
eager to keep out of any big pow-
er conflicts.

OSLO-Korean war news has
shocked Norwegians. Parliament
and various parliamentary com-
mittees have given full consider-
ation to the various steps taken
by the United States and the Uni-
ted Nations. However, authorities
have taken no visible measures to
deal with a possible crisis.
FRANKFURT - The Germans,
both East and West, plainly are
scared at the possibility the Kor-
ean struggle will draw Europe into
a shooting war. War fears in Ber-
lin apparently are worse than at
the start of the Soviet blockade of
Berlin two years ago.
But anti-Communists hope Uni-
ted States intervention will roll
back the North Koreans and make
possible a peaceful settlement. The
people remain calm and there has
been no rush to buy up supplies
for an emergency.
VIENNA - Austrians are begin-
ning to breathe easier after a week
of war jitters. There still is wide-
spread fear of war, but also grow-
ing confidence in the United Na-
tions and the United States.
The n e w s p a p e r Salzburger
Nachrichten said there is no dan-
ger of a third World Warat pre-
sent because the Communists have
not yet consolidated their hold in
China, Russia is not yet ready,
America too well prepared and
Stalin too old to look for new ad-
BELGRADE - Yugoslavs gener-
ally voiced approval of the Ameri-
can lead, but Tito's government
adopted a cautious attitude.
The man-in-the-street hoped

Yugoslavia could remain neutral if
the Korean fighting should flare
into a general war, but many ask-
ed themselves if their country
might be next in a Soviet parade
of conquests.
