Varied Summer Symposia
Will Add To Curriculum

No Spring Chickens?

Conferences and symposia in-
cluding more than 20 programs
ranging from visual arts surveys
to astrophysics studies will supple-
ment the Summer Session curric-
Open lectures on linguistic
subjects will be held every Tues-
day and Thursday in the Rackham
Amphitheater. Lecturers will be
members of the Linguistic Pro-
gram staff. The forums are in con-
junction with a concentrated study
program offered this summer.
AMONG the three symposia of
a scientific nature is "Radiation
Korean War

(Continued from Page 1)
JUST WHEN peace seemed im-
minent the UN forces were struck
by a "human sea" of 30 Chinese
Communist divisions in a new of-
fensive that rolled them back 150
miles in a few short weeks.
In April, 1951, General MacAr-
thur, having successfully launch-
ed a counter-offensive, was re-
lieved of his command as a result
of disagreement with President
Truman over strategy and the ob-
jectives of the war. He was suc-
ceeded by U.S. Eighth Army Com-
mander General Matthew B.
First truce meeting held July
10 was. the beginning of nearly
two years of constant charge, de-
mand and stalemate. A deadlock
over prisoner repatriation was the
major issue.
FIGHTING continued in spurts
-bitter fighting-with casualties
and no progress. Total casualties
mounted to an estimated two and
a half millions of which 137,000
have been Americans. American
dead number 24,000 to date.
Finally on June 8 of this year
an agreement was drawn up
which would pave the way for
a cease-fire order. Accord was
reached concerning Communist
prisoners reluctant to return
home. Politically neutral na-
tions agreed to participate in
the repatriation proceedings.
Under the agreement, the pres-
ent battle-line was to serve as
truce line with a 2.4 neutral zone.
A series of political conferences
would be held within; three months
to iron out any difficulties.
Exactly a week ago President
Rhee in an act of defiance to-
ward the United Nations settle-
ment displayed his complete dis-
approval of the proceedings by
ordering the release of the first
group of reluctant prisoners.
IN A DESPERATE effort to
prevent a truce he believed would
be harmful to his country, he
threatened first to "fight on
alone," and finally to "withdraw
. forces from the United Na-
tions command."
This attempt to unify the en-
tire Korean peninsula instead of
merely insuring that the Com-
munist armies keep out of his
country has, in the opinion of
political experts, immeasurably
prolonged the time before peace
can be attained.

Italians Visit '
Four Italian naval engineers and
architects are on campus to study
the University's ship designing and
testing facilities so they can help
fellow Italian shipbuilders increase
contributions to their country's de-
fense efforts.
Of special interest will be the
naval tank, where research is done
on design of canal and riverboat
hulls, because much of Italy's busi-
ness is with ships of this kind.

elected to the board of directors.
Prof. Hooper has just returned

the squirrel in an attempt to show
its relation to local species.
