British Major B. A. Smith, in charge of removing the bomb, said that tomorrow bomb disposal crews will cut a hole in the bomb and wash out its explosive contents with a high pressure stream of water. Police who cleared a vast area surrounding the buried bomb were unable to budge Queen Mary, 79-year-old mother of the king, from her house 100 yards away. She told London bobbies she would not leave her residence at Marlborough house, but agreed to keep away from her bedroom, overlooking the site of the bomb which had been scheduled to have its fuse removed tonight. Hundreds of police cleared everyone else, except army engineers and a radio announcer, from an area extending from Buckingham palace to the admiralty, and from Piccadilly to the back door of Church house, where the United Nations organization is meeting. Among those barred from St. James park, which has been famous as a lovers lane since the lusty days of Charles the Second, were dozens of G.I.s and their girls who arrived in taxis as darkness fell. Senators consider financial report Expenditures of Troy student groups exceed money outlays of previous years A report on the expenditures for student activities for the year 1944-1945 to the ASSC senate from Arnold Eddy, director of student and alumni affairs, last night disclosed that expenditures for the Women’s Athletic association, Associated Women Students, rally fund, social fund, and the general fund -1 totaled $399.92 more than the $1500 Pig will appear at pledge dig allotted for these groups. Requests for a more complete report upon the appropriations and expenditures were forthcoming from a number of senate members. Senators were assured that more information concerning the statement could be obtained from Eddy upon request. Figures released showed that appropriations for the 1945-1946 period in four instances were slightly higher than allocations for the 1944-1945 era. Those groups registering gains were the WAA, with S300, $100 more than the previous figure; rally fund, S600, compared to $400 for 1944-1945; social fund, $200, no appropriation having been offered in 1944-1945, and the general fund, S600, a S200 increase over last year’s funds.

Russian vice foreign commissar Andre IGM Vshinsky broke a dangerous three-day deadlock in the council when he offered a compromise based on a proposal United States chief delegate Edward R Stetttinius Jr., had made Tuesday night. British foreign secretary Ernest Bevin accepted the Russian proposal and so did Stettinius. Backing down completely from the stand he had taken against British policy in Greece, Vishinsky proposed: 1. The council would take no formal action and would pass no formal resolution on the Greek dispute. 2. Norman J. O. Makin, Australian president of the council, would make a statement on Greece incorporating previous declarations by the United States, Britain, Russia, Greece, France, China, the Netherlands and Egypt. Bevin in turn backed down from his demand that the council give Britain a straight vote of guilty or not guilty on the Russian charges. A roll will be taken, according to Sylvia Lovell, ASSC secretary. Miss , Lovell requests that each chairman bring to the meeting their social calendar for next term. Schedule of events covering the months of March, April, May, and June are asked for specifically. From this material, Miss Boice will be able to complete the ASSC calendar, and check other calendars to see that rules of the ASSC social committee have been followed. The meeting will begin promptly at 12 noon, and members are again asked to be there at that time, as there are Important matters to be discussed, according to Miss BOice.
