July 31.—(t'.E)—Adjournment of the Big Three conference has been suddenly postponed due to some development which has interrupted plenary meetings, it was understood early today. Censorship, severe since the conference opened, has been tightened from the top level to the most extreme degree. The censorship makes it impossible to say why the conference has been prolonged. It is said that the present situation does not mean that anything is materially wrong. But things are not going aocording to plan. This plan was to adjourn the conference yesterday with a world-shaking communique, it is possible to say now. At the moment it looks as if the president. Premier Josef Stalin, and Prime Minister Clement Attlee will be here two or three days more. The most reliable sources available say that the Big Three plenary meetings will be resumed this afternoon. Five p.m. is the usual hour. DON WOODWARD, army air corps veteran and former SC student, looks at his star in the SC service flag. Once a petroleum engineering student here, Woodward obtained a job with a southern California petroleum company through the Los Angeles veterans service center, 306 West Third street. m Searles to review Education' volume Dr. Herbert L. Searles, associate professor of philosophy, will discuss “The New Education and Religion,” Paul J.

Tinayre program features old music Yves Tinayre, prominent conccrt baritone, entertained last night in Bovard auditorium in conjunction with tile summer session chorus and orchestra. The chorus and orchestra are under the direction of Dr. Max T. Krone, associate director of the School of Music. Selections featured on the program included “Beata Visccra,” Pe-rotin; “Vergine Bella,” Guillaume du Fay; “Regina Coeli,” Op. 106, Mozart; “Concertato a Voce Sola a Nova Instromenti,” Claudio Monteverdi, and the aria “Ora pro nobis.” ‘•Requiem,” Gabriel Ur’oain Faure, was presented during the second part of the program. • Requiem” is considered by authorities to be one of Faure’s greatest works. Faure was one of the distinguished figures in French music as an organist, composer, and teacher. In a statement Dr. Searles declared, “The book Is not merely an examination K traditional religious education, but is a study of the whole relationship of religion to public education, including the legal aspects of ‘sectarian’ teaching. It is concerned with the question as to how the values of religious motivation can be secured for the furthering the democratic ideals without compromising our religious freedom.” In the bock Dr. Williams faces very honestly the points at which education is frustrated by both secularism and sectarianism. Dr. Searles stated that by “The New Education” the author means simply our present system of democratic public education improved at an accelerated rate in the future even greater than that which has been achieved in the last 50 years. Continuing, he said, “It frankly faces those respects in which present day religious education is inadequate. The coneept of religious education is broadened to include all of those formulative experiences which enable an individual or a society to develop a hierarhy of vr/ues.” After Dr. Searles* interpretation a discussion will be held dealing with the book. Some of the vital questions pertaining to the book concern whether or not there is danger that powerful interests are struggling to control our schools, the political “coloring” of these interests; what the relation is between sectarianism which has been by Manuel Mireles Veterans Service Center week, July 29 to Aug. 4, sponsored by VSC, is focusing attention on the downtown service headquarters for all returning veterans and their families. Since opening its doors last Jan. 2, 17,000 veterans have received assistance. The VSC is a streamlined organization that grew out of the need of a central place where veterans could go for any aid needed. Its main purposes are to provide a community-wide (34 cities and towns) organization through which all activities directed toward the benefit of war veterans may be coordinated; and to operate a central station for serving ex-servicemen, in which representatives of all major agencies equipped to advise and serve veterans may be housed. Centrally located at 306 West Third street, the VSC combines under one roof all the agencies which a veteran might wish to contact. Offices are opened from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily except Sundays. There are veterans’ groups, government departments, public and private health and welfare organizations, and business and labor groups. No veteran that seeks assistance at the center is "passed the buck.” Aid is arranged in the same building. Among the many SC students that have been helped is Don Woodward. Woodward was a petro-leum-engineer major at the university when he enlisted in 1941. He was discharged as an air force captain, and through the center’s work, he is now attending night classes and also working with a petroleum company. Any veteran with a problem re lating to adjusting to civilian life may find an agency that will help him in his efforts, stated Miss Kathleen Gelcher, former SC student and former women’s editor of the D.T., who Is now working with the center’s public relations office. Miss Gelcher explained that if a veteran is not sure what agency he should contact, he is interviewed by one of the many counselors who explains what aid he is entitled to under the various veterans programs. He is then directed to the right agency, which is prepared to meet his needs. VSC is a community-wide organization maintained by Los Angeles Area War Chest funds. Volunteers, serving as representatives of the community, direct the Center’* operations. Membership includes persons appointed by nearly 3000 civic and patriotic organizations. Robert H. Craig is president, and Arthur H. Tryon is executive director of this force. Officers of the board, members of (Continued on Page Three) DR. T. WALTER WALLBANK . . . Whither Britain?

Walter Wallbank, associate professor of history, in his address at the Men’s Faculty club luncheon on Wednesday, Aug. 1, to be held in the tearoom, third floor of the Student Union.

William F. Halsey’s gigantic air-sea onslaught into its fourth week with a new bombardment of the enemy coast. Steaming boldly into land-locked Suruga bay, the destroyers shelled the city of Shimizu, 100 miles southwest of Tokyo and site of Japan’s largest aluminum plant, in the seventh warship bombardment of the enemy homeland in 22 days. That bombardment followed by only 24 hours a 1000-ton assault on Hamamatsu, 150 miles southwest of Tokyo, by British and American battleships, cruisers, and destroyers. Adm. Chester W. Nimitz announced that heavy damage was wrought in Hamam-utsu, astride Japan’s railroad lifeline between Tokyo and the south Honshu war production centers. Tabulating results of Monday’s aerial bombardment of an area stretching from Tokyo to the Kobe-Osaka area, Nimitz disclosed that preliminary results showed British and American airmen manning some 1500 carrier planes sank seven ships and damaged 53 and destroyed 65 planes and damaged 73. Since July 10, when Halsey’s preinvasion onslaughts started with an attack on Tokyo, the enemy has lost 1349 planes destroyed or damaged and 974 ships sunk or damaged. Among the ships knocked out were 81 warships, comprising all the major known remaining seaworthy units of the Japanese fleet.
