UN-Reds Clash On Neutrals TOKYO, (Wednesday) Feb. 20— (UP)—Allied and Communist staff officers went back to work at Panin unjom today on one of the three major problems blocking a Korean armistice—Russian participation as a “Neutral" nation inspecting the truce. The staff officers discussing truce supervision have argued heatedly since late last week on the question. The United Nations command vetoed Russia “for obvious reasons.” The communists demanded the U.N. reverse its “intolerable” decision. The other two problems blocking a truce are decisions on whether war prisioners should have a choice on whether they go back home and whether airfields should be built up during a truce. These two questions are outside the province of the staff officers and must be settled at a higher level. One of the most remarkable art exhibits tha thas ever been known in the southland. In the opinion of Byron V. Davis, professor of industrial design, will be shown today through Feb. 29, in 103 Harris hall. The exhibit of 15 paintings is the latest work of the famous international artist Gyorgy Kepes, professor of visual design. School of Architecture and Planning, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Moods Vary Style Kepes style of painting shows his moods and is emotional rather than visual. His works are remarkable in color content, texture and form. Pro. fessor Davis said. . Bom in Selyp, Hungary, Kepes studied in the Royal Academy of Fine Arts, Budapest. From 1929 to 1936 his works appeared in exhibitions in Budapest, Vienna, Berlin, London and New York. Arriving in the United States in 1937, he became the head of the light and color departments at the Institute of Design, Chicago. In 1944 he wrote the book “Language of Vision.” Kepes has been the head of visual design at MIT since 1948. Woe Is Row, Ramona’s Back DT VIP Gives Willie DDT's • Ramona Rhodes, former Daily Trojan society columnist and antagonist of the Row, has contracted to unleash her vitriolic prose in the revived Wampus, campus humor magazine.

She answered with: “But yellow journalism is fun.” Baron Leones, ★ ★ ★ African ★ ★ Style ★ Africa Program Slated ,iz Taylor Meets over in London LONDON Feb. 19—(UP>—Screen ir Elizabeth Taylor arrived by air night from New York and imme-euely slipped away from a waiting Dwd for an eight-minute embrace th the man she came to marry 40-vear-old British actor Michael ilding.

Folk songs, war dances and an African wedding will also be'a part of the African’s traditional harvest festival. Two wrestling matches, entirely different from those seen on television. will be held according to the rules and regulations of African tribes. In contrast to our modem concept of wrestling, a “fall" may be obtained in several ways. African Wrestling Explained A “fall” is made when one wrestler succeeds in lifting his opponent into the air. Likewise, a “fall” can be made whert the wrestler so out-maneuvers his opponent that he falls on his back. If a wrestler gets his opponent in a position where he can throw -his leg over the other, he wins the “fall.” But perhaps the most difficult is executed when one wrestler succeeds in getting behind the other. The African culture program is under the sponsorship of the Intercultural club at SC. Heading the group is Chukuemeka Okeke, president. The harvest festival, as it is celebrated in Africa, is a time of great merriment and rejoicing. In West Africa, the harvest festival comes at the beginning of the dry season, about the first of November. At the time crops and vegetables from the farms are being stored and the peo. pie make sacrifices to the Gods for blessing the land with abundance. Social Season For the next five months tfyere is little work to be done and for the Af:ican people, it is a time of leisure and enjoyment. It is also the season for love and many young men get married during this season. A typical African marriage cere- mony will be staged as a part of the Saturday night program. The preliminary negotiations, celelrations, and the Sapara dance, all a part of the wedding ceremony, will be performed with Adora Ulasi as the bride and Anyogu Ukohu as the groom. War Dance Feature A war dance will also be featured with a native drummer beating out the fascinating African rhythm. Performers for the harvest festival are all native-born Africans who have come to the United State to receive an education. Students will be represented from SC. UCLA, Loyola, Pepperdine, and Occidental The public is cordially invited to attend the festival. Admission is free. Flying Saucers Reported Seen On Korea Front WASHINGTON, Feb. 19—(UP)— The Air Force disclosed today that it has ordered a full-scale investigation of reports that objects resembling “flying saucers” have been sighted in Korea by crewmen of two American B-29 bombers. An Air Force spokesman said four fliers described the objects as discshaped, bright orange in color and sending off occasional flashes of bluish light. Two of the fliers were said to have estimated the discs were about three feet in diameter. • In the past, the Air Force has forcefully discounted widespread re. ports of “flying saucers” or “discs." But it was sufficiently impressed by reports from its own personnel to order a full inquiry. The reports from the U.S. crewmen were sent to top officials here through regular military intelligence channels. The first report was submitted to Air Force intelligence officers from two crewmen of a B-29 bomber who said they saw the object flying parallel to their plane at about midnight the night of Jan. 29. The plane was over Wonsan, Korea. Their “sighting” might have been dismissed as an optical illusion or’ imagination working overtime. But the same night, a B-29 from a different squadron * returned to its base after a flight over Sunchon, Korea, some distance from Wonsan. Two crewmen said they saw flying discs moving along side their plane at a high altitude. The time also was at about midnight. ELEANOR ROOSEVELT, one of the most vigorous supporters of the United Nations and chairman of the UN Commission on Human Rights, will open a "model UN'* here with an address to students of 60 western universities and colleges. Europe Army Plan Receives Criticism Varsity Show Tryouts Continue Tryouts for the Varsity Show will be held today, tomorrow, and Friday in 133 Founders, according to Jack Tillar, producer. More than 40 persons will be selected to act, sing, and danpe, and an even larger number of backstage men will be needed. Casting will be done by Tillar, Director Jim Norcop, Musical Director Sam Spence, Choreographer Courtna McMann and Assistants Candy Allen and Jack Colton. Approval of plans which would include German troops in West European defense drew critical comment from two faculty members of the School of International Relations, yesterday. The French Assembly yesterday endorsed West German participation in the forming of a West European army. French opposition had previously blocked the limited German entrance into Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower’s defense army Konrad Adenauer, West German chancellor, announced that the Big Three foreign ministers had agreed that West Germany would be given an indirect voice in North Atlantic Treaty organization affairs and that all controls would be lifted on German war production. Berkes Doubtful “I don’t think it is right for us to be too optimistic about whether the accord of the foreign ministers means anything,” said Dr. Ross N. Berkes, acting ^director of the School of International Relations. Dr. Berkes said that the inclusion of West German troops in Western defense will bring about two problems. One is whether the Germans will accept the conditions to their entrance tagged on by the West. “A question may be raised over the shbrt-sightedness of overemphasizing the value of the immediate German contribution,” said Dr. 3«rkes. “The United States pressed the point of German inclusion prematurely. The main problem is one of general integration of Germany into the West European community. Military integration Is a somewhat awkward step toward a general outcome.” Dr. Berkes said he preferred the US work quietly toward economic and political integration before tackling ^military problems. The consequence of rushing military affairs has caused new problems which France and many western powers have been incapable of handling, he said. UNESCO Head To Talk Today to Mens' Faculty The activities of the department for the exchange of information of UNESCO will be the subject of Theodore Besterman, past head of that organization, who will speak before the Mens’ Faculty club, today at noon. Bestprman, author of “UNESCO, Peace In the Minds of Men," headed the exchange of information department for three years. The department deals with library inf or mation and the exchange of library materials. While in southern California, Bes Eleanor Roosevelt, widow of the late president and chairman of the United Nations Commission on Human Rights, will be the opening speaker at the Model United Nations to be held here Apr. 2-5. Students from 80 western universities and colleges will attend the second Model UN. representing delegates from the 60 countries participating in the international organization. Delegates will imitate es closely as possible the stands the court--tries they represent would take in UN matters, according to D. Jerome Harris, SC student and conference director. SC to Represent Russia SC will represent Soviet Russia during the four-day meet, with Jim Ivonoff heading the delegation. Interviews for membership on the SC delegation will be held next week in the International lounge from 9:30—10:30 a. m. and —4:15—5:15 p.m., Monday: 9:30— 10:30 a.m. and 3—4 p.m., Tuesday; and 9:30—10:30 ajn. and 5—6 pm Wednesday. Persons with knowledge of the UN and an interest in International relations are wanted to fill the delegation, mid Bill McGinn, IR major who willl serve as secretary-general of the Model UN. Preparation Required “It takes a lot of reading, studying, and preparation to be qualified to serve on the delegation,” McGinn said. At- the first model UN, held last year at Stanford, SC delegates Dori Bonham, John Hooks, and McGinn represented Nationalist China. “It was a very lively conference,’’ McGinn said, “with much accord and just as much discord.” IT. S. Delegate Ralph Bunche was the main speaker last year. Purpose Told Purpose of the conference, sponsored by the Collegiate Council for the United Nations, is to build a greater understanding of the Utf among students and faculty meinbers. While resolutions will, be passed, the principal aim will be to broaden the delegates’ understanding of what the UN is and what it’s trying to do. said Harris In order to do this delegations will try to completely emulate their counterparts in the real United Nations, and procedure followed will be identical to that of the UN General Assembly. - In addition to General Assembly meetings, the Security terman is the guest of Dr. Lionel A. j committee, and Trusteeship coun-Stevenson, head of the English de- | cil will also hold sessions during partment. the conference. State Dept. Clears Aide by United Press WASHINGTON.—Career diplomat John Carter Vincent was “completely cleared” by the State Department yesterday of chargs involving his loyalty and security. The department's Loyalty and Security board gave the far Eastern expert a clean bill which entitles him to return to his post as minister to Tangier today. The loyalty findings are subject to scrutiny by President Truman’s top Loyalty Review board but the security decision is final. Undersecretary of State Carlisle M Humelsine told Vincent the department has “full confidence in you.” Vincent's was one of the four "name' cases to go before the board as a result of communist-in-gov-emment sharges aired by Sen. Jo. seph R. McCarthy (R-Wis.) and others. Chance to Sound off Warren to Seek Nomination in Wisconsin SACRAMENTO, Feb. 19—(UP)— Governor Earl Warren said today he will actively campaign for the Republican presidential nomination in Wisconsin and will enter that state’s Apr. 1 primary. Warren said he picked Wisconsin, where Sen. Robert A. Taft and Harold Stassen already havii announced themselves as seeking the state's 30 nominating delegates, for two principal reasons: 1. “Because it is one of the first primaries and I want to express my views to the public so they will understand them a considerable time Before the convention meets.” 2. “And because I consider these people very substantial support for my campaign.” In Wisconsin, Warren’s entry into the primary was welcomed by supporters of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, but the news was received without comment by backers of other candidates. State Sen. Bernhard Gettelman, an Eisenhower committeeman, said Warren had made no commitments to throw his lot with that of Eisenhower But apparently in view of the fact that Warren and Eisenhow- er agree fundamentally on several ^ important issues, Eisenhower supporters believe Warren is the best man to back in the absence of the General’s name on the ticket. “We will conduct a very, very hard campaign for Warren,” Gettelman said. Wisconsin Secretary of State Fred Zimmerman, a strong Eisenhower man, said Warren’s entry into the primary meant that “there’ll be no Eisenhower slate in Wisconsin as such.” The Governor said he was entering the Wisconsin primary “at the request of 55 active and prominent Republicans of that state who, without solicitation from me, have urged me to do so." He said he probacy will file his nomination papers following his return from a speaking engagement on Feb. 26 before a soil conservation group in Cleveland, o. Warren said “I have just not attempted to reach a conclusion” yet as to whether he will enter the Oregon primary. He said neither was he now considering entering primaries in any other states, besides California, but that he might e his mind. Asked if his entry into the Wisconsin race was to be regarded as hostile toward Taft or Stassen, the California Governor replied: “In no sense is that true. I have a high personal regard for Governor Stassen. I have no reason to feel any hostility for him whatsoever. ‘Mac’ in Oregon Race SALEM, Ore., Feb. 19— (UP)— Gen. Douglas MacArthur today became first candidate for the presidential nomination in Oregon’s May 16 preferential primary election. Mar Arthur, who earlier today asked that his name be, withdrawn from presidential primaries in Pennsylvania and Minnesota, was entered by Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Epton of Portland. Mr. and Mrs. Epton also filed their <^ndidacies for delegates to the Republican national convention. Under Oregon law, only signatures of 1,000 registered party members are necessar yto enter a candidat in the primary. Consent of the candidate is not required. The same thing goes for Senator Taft.” Warren said Senator Joseph McCarthy’s bid for reelection would in no way enter Into his own campaign for the presidential nomination in Wisconsin. “I am not going as a carpetbagger to tell the people of Wisconsin what to do in a senatorial contest,” War-1 ren said. “I am going to present my views, period.” Warren said he did not know “how much time I can squeeze out" to actively campaign in Wisconsin, noting that the California Legislature convenes Mar. 3 requiring him to spend much of his time at th« capital. The Governor said, “So far as time will permit it and it is consistent with my duties as Governor of California, I shall make myseU acquainted with the voters of Wisconsin and express personally tc them my views on the problems before the American people.” Warren’s Wisconsin supporters headed by former Governor Phillip K La Follette, had sent him a telegram last Saturday urging that he approve the filing of a slate of delegates in the primary.
