Douglas MacArthur today ended months of discreet political silence with a sudden and dramatic announcement that he will run for president of the United States if "called by the American people.” “I am deeply grateful for the spontaneous display of friendly confidence,” he said. “No man could fail to be profoundly stirred by such a public movement in this hour of momentous import— national, international, temporal and spiritual. “While it seems unnecessary for me to repeat I do not actively seek or covet any office and have no plans for leaving my post in Japan. I can say and with due Commenting on the enthusiasm of the Trojan Chest drive’s first week. Herb Hynson, director of the Chest, said yester- 1 day that the campaign will continue throughout this week in spite of five-week exams. He added that additional volunteers are needed to help push the drive through to a j successful conclusion. “We still need workers,” Hynson said, “to assist in soliciting funds and in manning the collection booths.” ARGYLE AUCTION This week's phase of the Chest | drive is to be highlighted with an j Moses Topic Of Greenberg Panorama Talk mm ROBERT B.

Her attitude is now one of combating Russia’s attempts to block the Marshall plan and to rebuild western Europe without the help of Stalin, Dr. Wallbank said. FOUR CHALLENGES The historian explained that he will discuss the four great challenges Britain faces today—eco- ing a prelecture interview. CAPITALISM TO CHANGE He pointed out that as counterbalance to this trend, technological changes brought about directly and indirectly by atomic energy will possibly revitalize capitalism.

Failure of the International Union of Students' secretariat to condemn the action of the present Czechoslovakian government with regard to the treatment of students in Prague has caused two interim representatives of the National Student Association to resign. In accepting the resignation, the; NSA staff conlirmed the position i taken by the representatives in denouncing the action of the IUS sec- j retariat. REDS VIOLATE PRINCIPALS One student was killed and several wounded Feb. 25 when police fired on a procession of 1500 students marching to ask President Benes not to install the new government. William Ellis, Harvard, one of the representatives to the IUS. was in Switzerland when the change was made in the Czech government. James Smith, University of Texas, acting as proxy for Ellis, was in Prague. Both students submitted their resignation by cable to Bob Smith, vice-president in charge of international student activities for the NSA. All student groups and the Czech- NSA interviews will be held at the Blue Key office from 1 to 3 today. All those interested in clerical, administrative, or public relations work with the NSA are urged to come up for an interview. oslovakian National Union of Students have been dissolved by Communist “action committees,” according to the communication from Ellis. He said all reactionary professors and students have been banned from the university at Prague, and that every democratic principle had been violated. Withdrawal of the interim representatives terminates any relationship which had existed between the NSA and the IUS. The executive committee of the NSA will review the action in April when more information will be available, but staff officers believe that future affiliation with the IUS will be impossible. PROGRAM CONTINUES William Welsh, president of the United States NSA, sa:d that withdrawal of the representatives wculd not end their international pro-grom. Every effort will be made to continue cooperation with individual foreign student unions in nonpolitical programs. Student exchanges, travel, and relief activities will be continued in an attempt to promote international understanding and friendship. the rest of the semester at 12:30’ and 1:30 p.m., 309 Bridge hall, Al Gottlieb, executive secretary of CAI, said Friday.

Pettingill, director , of the Teaching Institute of Eco- j nomics, will add to his “Possible; Program for Peace,” which he dis- 1 cussed at the meeting last Tues- j day.
