Engineers Get
Legacy Benefits
One million dollars worth of en-
ineering scholarships will be
warded with the bequest of a
alifornia widow whose husband

ig to University officials.
The anticipated gift will mean
holarships for an estimated 30
ngineering students per year, the
Sffcials said.
Left to the University by Mrs.
lice B. Groesbeck, whose hus-
and, an 1898 graduate of the
igineering college, died on Aug.
., 1948, the money is one-fourth
an estate valued at $4,181,000.
Terms of the will were re-
vealed when an appraisal of the
Groesbeck estate was filed in
uperior court in San Diego. The,
will has been admitted to pro-
bate court in New York City.
Earmarked in the will for schol-
ships, the money will mean a
boost to the student body and

Brown of the engineering col-

Gen. Clark Pays Second Call on Rhee

The Dean expressed hope,
however, the scholarships can be
made large enough to cover
more than just tuition.
This would provide more edu-
cational opportunities for those
who would otherwise be unable to
attend the University he feels.
Mrs. Groesbeck was the widow
of Clarence R. Groesbeck, des-
cribed as a utilities magnate
and former chairman of the
board of Electric Bond and
Share Co. of New York City. He
received an honorary doctor of
engineering degree from the
University in 1931.
The state in which the estate,
consisting largely of stocks and
bonds, is to be administered has
not yet been determined. Mrs.
Groesbeck died in San Diego on
Oct. 17, 1952.
University officials say it may
take several months before any
definite legal action is taken.

According to campus political
experts the Korean War has been
"immeasurably lengthened."
The recent release by South
Korean President Syngman Rhee
of 27,000 North Korean and Chi-
nese POWs who had expressed
reluctance to return home will
prove to be a serious setback in
the plans for any kind of speedy
truce, they said.
COMMENTING on yesterday's
announcement by UN Far East-
ern Commander Gen. Mark W.
Clark that he could sign an armis-
tice without South Korean approv-
al, the fact was stressed that such
a move would be pointless from a
political standpoint.

Hatcher Says Students'
Capacity Underrated

According to Prof. Robert E.
Ward of the political science
department,".the Chinese have
said that a truce without South
Kor would have no meaning."
For this reason he said the Unit-
ed States would not push such
a move.
Commenting on the recent re-
lease of the 27,000 prisoners by
Rhee's government and the ob-
vious inability of the UN to con-
trol the activities of Rhee, Prof.
Ward said that the only way such
control could be exercised would
be "to subvert Rhee's govern-

THIS, he pointed out, would be
highly unethical from our stand-
point, but "because the situation
is desperate such a move has been
"I don't know how such sug-
gestions have been received,"
he continued, "and I don't mean
to imply that this is the only
solution to the problem. Per-
haps Rhee is open to negotia-
tion. This would be far more
Maintaining that any truce
without the consent of South Ko-
ro would "defeat the purpose of
the war," Prof. N. Marbury Efi-
menco of the political science de-
partment defined this purpose as
"collective security."
* * *
FOR THIS reason, he said, it
would be "dangerous to allow
South Korea to continue the war,
alone." He stressed "the strong
moral obligation of the United
Nations to unify Korea rather
than to merely halt aggression."
Prof. Efimenco pointed out
that because "the strain of war
was more telling on South Korea
than on the United States, and
because Rhee has always been
known to be obstinate and auto-
cratic" there seems to be little
chance that the UN would risk
pulling out of the war without
the consent of the Republic.
Another argument in opposition
to a truce under present condi-
tions, he said, is that such a
move "would not receive unani-

South Korean police had little

could not speak Korean. The po-
