Campus Summer Directory
To Reveal Vital Statistics
John Messer, '52, announced yesterday that he has decided to
share his "little tan book," which contains so valuable statistics on
4 the more than 2,000 women on campus.
His book, the summer student directory, will go on sale today
at a price of 50 cents-"the lowest price in summer directory history,"
It contains the home and local address of every student registered
' in the summer session. Besides, the directory will include a complete
list of visiting faculty members, their departments, and their home
'schools, he explained.
A convenient run down of league, houses, dorms, fraternities,

Lewis was the first public an-

member of the delegation on what
Pennsylvania will do.
LEWIS SAID it was his own
estimate, based on the roll call

Pennsylvania cast 57 votes to re-
ject a Taft-sponsored amendment
to the convention rules then, with
13 votes favoring the change.

THE ALLIES entered into the
executive sessions July 4 in hopes
that some face-saving formula
might be worked out on the cru-
cial prisoner exchange issue-
major obstacle to an armistice.
Such a formula probably
would provide for the return of
all military prisoners--as de-
manded by the Reds-but only
after changing the status of

by the Allies, perhaps to provide

that a successful conclusion might
be reached within a month.
Meanwhile, Allied tanks and
infantry raided Chinese Com-
munist position on the east-
central Korean front early yes-
terday and at daybreak were
holding the area firmly.
On the central' front, southeast
of Kumsong, 14 Communist tanks

the United Nations line during
the night. The Eighth army re-
ported the Reds broke off the ac-
tion but "remained in the area."
It was the heaviest concentration
of Red armor seen in a month.

The "little tan book" will be on

at that central campus location
other salesmen will be stationed in
the Engine Arch, the Union, and

WASHINGTON - (P) - The
nation's marriage rate appar-
ently dipped last year to the
lowest point since 1938, the
public health service reported
And the divorce rate for 1951
was estimated to be the lowest
The 1951 marriage rate of
10.4 per thousand population
was 37 per cent below the rec-
ord set in 1946. and 6 per cent
down from 1950. There were
1,594,900 marriages estimated
for 1951, a reduction of 72,300'
from the 1950 total.
In 1951 there were 2.4 di-
vorces granted for every 1,000
persons, compared with 2.5 in
1950. Since 1946, when a rec-
ord was set, the divorce rate
has dropped 44 per cent. It was
estimated there were 371,000
divorces in 1951, compared with
385,100 in 195.

A pp roved
General Philip Perlman, who un-
successfully pressed President Tru-
man's claim for power to seize
the steel industry in an historic
Supreme Court test, resigned from
government service yesterday.
Announcing the resignation,
President Truman said he accept-
ed it with "sincere regret" and
wished Perlman success on his re-
turn to private law practice.
* * *
WIDELY recognized as one of
the top trial lawyers in the coun-
try, Perlman personally handled 61
government cases in the Supreme
Court during his five- year term
and won 48 of them.
Among his victories were cases
establishing the vaidity of an
anti-Communist oath for un-
ion leaders and contempt action
against leading Reds.
Obviously aware that he is leav-
ing at a time when the Justice
Department has been under heavy
fire, Perlman emphasized in his
letter of resignation that the work
of his office has been carried en
without pressure from any quar-
ter "and without criticism."
NOW 62 years old, he is the
fourth high Justice Department
official to quit since James P. M-
Granery took over as Attorney
General on May 27 frliowing the
ouster of J. Howard McGrath.

a "phantom" the European army

declared, "that our first duty
is to defend the United States.
"I do not propose that we re-
treat into our shell like a turtle.
I do propose the deadly reprisal
strategy of a rattlesnake."
Hoover did not mention by name
either of the two leading con-
tenders for the Party Presidential
nomination which he won twice.
But the theme of his speech,
devoted in large part to foreign
policy, was much closer to the ex-
pressed views of Taft than to
those of Eisenhower.
