Blue Key's valentine Raubenheimer returns to SC after AAC meet ate approves aid UCLA housing Dr. A. S. Raubenheimer, dean of the College of Letters, Arts and Sciences, returned to the campus yesterday after representing the university at the annual meeting of the Association of American Colleges, held in Cleveland, Ohio. In addition to serving on the oommittee on tenure and freedom of speech of the association, he visited leading universities and educators in Rochester, New York, Washington, Pittsburgh, and Chicago, studying trends in education and interviewing prospective SC faculty candidates. The Cleveland sessions, attended by the country’s leading educators, met to discuss problems arising from the transition of war to peace. Chief concern was over the influx of 250,000 veterans applying for admission to universities and colleges over the country. Among key resolutions stressed by the educators were recommendations for a more thorough study by national committees on the needs for security of the nation before action is taken by ,Congress on military conscription.

The general concensus of the meeting was that no matter how grave the issues might be during the next few years, they would not be as serious as the ones faced and overcome by the oollege during the four years of war. Wampus seeks student talent contributions A call went out today for all photographers, short-story and feature writers, poets, and cartoonists interested in working for fhe university humor magazine, from the editorial offices of the Wampus, 404 Student Union. Assistant editor Donna Knox made a special plea for contributions of humorous articles and stories, preferably with an SC slant, to be turned in to the Warn-. pus office. Photos of university life are especially needed for forthcoming issues of the magazine, Miss Knox announced. Miss Knox will be in the Wampus office, 404 Student Union, from 2 to 5 p.m., today, tomorrow, and Friday to Interview contributors. Graduate dramatists plan one-ad plays Three dramas to be staged Friday, Saturday in Bovard auditorium “The show must go on” is more than merely a gag phrase which has threatened to replace “Who’s on first base?” as material for the antics of Abbott and Costello or your very witty uncle from Glendale.

Lie nominated (or UNO post LONDON, Jan. 29— 'U.P)—Norwegian Foreign Minister Trygve Lie was unanimously nominated secretary general of the United Nations by the security council today. The 50-year-old Lie ((pronounced Lee) was proposed by U. S. Chief Delegate Edward R. Stettinius at a 30-minute closed session of the 11-nation council. He received the council’s unanimous vote. Security Council President N. J. O. Makin of Australia immediately sought to reach Lie, who had gone to Oslo for a weekend and was not scheduled to return here until tomorrow, to find out if he would accept. It was assumed that he would. Lie’s# nomination must still be accepted by the 51-nation general assembly, but it was a foregone conclusion it will adhere to the Big Five compromise on Lie which led to the unanimous action of the council. The next plenary sessions of the assembly is not scheduled until Friday, but a special session may be called earlier if Lie indicates his willlingness to accept. Stettinius took a vigorous lead in pressing for selection of the Norwegian, who is a compromise between the Anglo-American candidate Lester B. Pearson, Canadian ambassador to Washington, and the Russian desire for an eastern European. First break in a two-week old deadlock came yesterday when the Soviet chief delegate informed Stettinius the Soviets were prepared for further discussions on candidates. Stettinius called an informal session of the Big Five and suggested Lie as a compromise. The secretary general will hold the most important post in the United Nations organization. one-act plays, scheduled for Friday and Saturday nights as an innovation of the graduate students of the School of Drama, will go on despite unintentional interference on the part of the university Glee club and an inflamed appendix which has incapacitated a performer of one play. Alan Grahm, graduate student and director of one of the three productions being presented, stated that one member of his cast was necessarily dropped because the fellow is a member of the Glee club and that organization has been scheduled for a performance the same evening. Geraldine Carlson, graduate student directing one of the short plays, is now searching the campus for an actor to replace a man she lost because of the illness previously described. Grahm has solved his problem by assuming the vacated role himself. and Miss Carlson, true to the tradition of the theater, insists that her play will be ready at curtain time if she has to don buckskins for a part in “The Monkey’s Paw.” “These one-act plays are being presented,” Grahm said, “to encourage participation of a greater number of students in presenting plays for the School of Drama.” “If the idea is successful, several one-act plays will be given during each term.” The three plays being presented this weekend are “The Boy Comes Home” by A. A. Milne; “If Men Played Cards as Women Do” by George S. Kaufman; and “The Monkey's Paw” by W. W. Jacobs. Director of the plays, in the order presented, are Bill Sowers, Alan Grahm, and Geraldine Carlson. All are graduate students of the School of Drama, and all are working toward a master’s degree in the field of dramatics. Performances will begin promptly at 8 p.m. on Friday and Saturday nights, Feb. 1 and 2.

Greever analyzes best seller today Stressing the use of symbolism, description, and philosophy in the best-selling novel by James Ramsey Ullman, “White Tower,” Dr. Garland Greever will present the sixth of the series of book interpretations sponsored by the Council of Religion this afternoon at 3:15 in the art and lecture room ---- I of the University library. DON GIBBS , . chief listener Squires . . will hold a meeting at the Trojan Horse this afternoon at 3 to sort cards. It is important that all members see Chuck Brohammer or Gordon Persons if they are unable to attend the meeting. An exchange meeting is planned for 6:30 this evening. Knights will hold a dinner meeting at 6:15 tonight at the SAE house, according to Buzz Forward, president. All members are requested to attend “White Tower” is the story of a group of international characters, including an American pilot and a nazi officer, who are thrown together in Switzerland and attempt to climb an almost unscaleable Alpine peak. the group meets with disaster and failure in its attempt, but the main character of the novel, the American, eventually makes his way to allied territory. A professional and skilled mountain climber, Ullman has woven all the elements of suspense and interest into his story, Dr. Greever says. Skillful handling of the characters, particularly the nazi, bring out both the good and bad elements in each of those attempting to realize the goal of conquering the mountain. Dr. Greever will bring out in his interpretation how the author employs symbolism in his story as each of the characters seeks to overcome almost impossible odds to accomplish his life-long goal. A carefully prepared philosophy is presented in drawing the picture of how each of the group in his ascent of the peak must fight the battle together with the others in order to win. Alone, and without the help of the rest of the group, the climber is doomed. Receiving praises by book-review-ers and selected by the Book of the Month club, the "White Towers” is considered an exceptionally fine example of contemporary American writing. A general discussion will be led by the speaker following the interpretation of the book. duty. He 3s expected to tell the faculty members some anecdotes in connection with his service aboard the battleship Tennessee, and the destroyer tender Dobbin, during the war years. Captain Cutler had interesting experiences with the great war-discovery, radar, while participating in the Aleutian campaign aboard the Tennessee. At the time radar was extremely new to the combat units of the United States fleet. The condition of Manila, which he visited right after it was liberated, will be discussed by Captain Cutler. He will also tell of making an observation flight over Corregidor at the time the Japanese were still on “the rock.” When the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor Dec. 7, 1941, Captain Cutler was there aboard the Tennessee. Although the battleship suffered severe damage during the raid, it put out to sea in search of the Japanese fleet within 10 days after the initial raid. Captain Cutler was the chief engineer aboard the battleship at the time, but soon afterwards he was promoted to executive officer and served in that capacity throughout the Aleutian campaign and the campaign for the Marshall and Gilbert Islands. He became the commanding officer of the Dobbin in May of 1944. He boarded Tne Dobbin at Morobi bay and led it through tht battles up and down the coasc oi JTew Guinea and in the campaign for the Philippine islands. Born, raised, and educated In Utah, Captain Cutler was appointed to Annapolis by Sen. Reed Smoot of Utah. He entered the academy in 1920, and graduated (Continued on Page 4) Wagner tells education plan Dr. Elmer E.
