URGES LETTERS TO CAPITAL 3fttt 30&MV& OfifxMt IvftUK &UeQt Vnafc Vefenment Vleut Since the' outbreak of the Korean war young men of both college and draft age have experienced various problems in attempting to solve their indi- vidual problem. Suddenly before Christmas there was a rush on the volunteer stations and half the men marched off. Just as suddenly after the men had gone Truman announced that from then on men might select their branch of service and re- main in college for the rest of the term. For some the announcement came too late . . . just as they were donning uniforms. For others it was a wel- come relief. However the situation still is shrouded in confusion.

In it. the historical events leading up to the invasion of Korea along with the other similar unwarranted iignicssivi acts was shown. Theme of the film was if the United States doesn't want aggressors to invade the U.S.A. for merely "agression's sake" then we must t i 1 1 1 in Korea now to stop the enemy. Obviously the government is backing the film. It is an explanation to the people of the United States to why sons fathers uncles cousins and friends must light today in a little unknown country. It was a much-needed explanation especially to those folk who always fail to grasp the significance of world events. As the narrator of the film said "If the aggressor isn't stopped today in Korea by the United Nations forces then tomorrow he might strike in New Yoik or San Francisco. Nobody stopped Japan when they invaded Manchuria or nobody slopped Mussolini in Abyssinia Hitler in P...

A bill was introduced :md passed in the Arkansas legislature that makes dog theft a felony instead of a mere misdemeanor. Now any low-lifed individual who stoops to dog-stealing can be sentenced to capital punishment or imprisonment instead of just a fine or short jail sentence. The presiding officer of the Arkansas legislature ruled that the bill had passed unanimously after the voting roll call was answered by many barks arfs woofs and hound-like howls. The bill was introduced by 81-year-old Senator William Abington who started a strong campaign for the bill after his hunting dog was stolen.

Across town on the 1 1 ill one of the social clubs initiated pledges last week and received national publicity from it. Naturally everyone likes to receive national publicity but not the adverse type received by the Abilene Christian pledges' picture all covered with red paint molasses and half-frozen. It is not this purpose to condemn or criticize the ACC social club for all club initiations be it at ACC or McMurry do occasionally take an extreme turn such as that. Tt is this pur- pose however to give a fair warning to McMurry socialites and use the Hilltoppers as an example of what could happen. The final result of the social club pledges' receiving national publicity is not known. It is assumed however that a suspen- sion is in line for both club and individual members. Social clubs play a main role in college activities. It would be a certain disadvantage and bring unhapniness to many if such suspen...
