Beyond The Ssjuare-By Carol Campbell
The Friendly Persuader
For most of the world, the in
creasing lack of faith in the United
Nations was suddenly replaced by
a surge of hope when this organi
zation obtained a cease-fire in
Egypt. And most of the credit for
this success is being directed to
wards the slight-shouldered Swede
who holds the title of Secretary
General of the U. N.

another penalty. Please-may we
have your co-operation ?
Your Student Council fully real
izes that circumstances often make
it impossible for you to be in the
dormitory by closing hours. Gate
permission is granted when it is
needed, but we ask that when you
have late permission that you dis
miss your dates and then wait in
the reception room of Clewell for
the night watchman to take you
to your dormitory. This will alle
viate any disturbance in front of
Clewell as well as having to wait
in the cold for Mr. Wright. But
if you do not-have late permission
and have some delay such as car
trouble, you are reminded to notify
the Dean’s office as soon as you
realize you will be late. This is
true eCen after a holiday.

Fifteen girls signed out late for
Thanksgiving holiday. Let’s have
a perfect record Christmas.
Noticed the hooded figures wan
dering around campus? No, we
haven’t joined ranks with the Ku
Klux Klan, or turned the college
into a monastery.
The enshrouded figures you’ve
seen are Salemites sporting the
latest in outdoor w'ear—the carcoat
(known up north as the quick coat).
These coats are the ivy-league ver
sion of the “three quarter” popular
during the 1940’s.
Most of the carcoats are water-
repellent, knee-length or shorter,
and lined wdth fur or heavy cotton
plaid. Canvas seerhs to be the most
popular material, although wool
and corduroy have proved just as
weather-resistant. Colors vary from
a light beige to 'a fiery red.
With fashions keeping up with
the fast pace of modern living,
who knows ?—ten years from now
maybe each Salem girl will be
wearing a “whizzer”, especially
equipped for jet travel!

Quite a number of girls seem

is your individual responsibility—
not your house president’s. Call
downs have been given for this in

to give so many call downs that

non-effective. Therefore, we have

Because of requests for more op

Students interested in joining one
of these groups are asked to sign

U. N.’s existence, the office of
Secretary General has developed
into an executive post of poten
tially immense power for many
reasons.. Some have said that the
frightened legislature has demand
ed a strong executive, others say
that it came about because of the
strong U. S. backing, but the ex
pansion of power has also been due
to the personal confidence inspired
by the Secretary himself, Mr. Dag
An old hand at the art of per
suasion, Mr. Hammerskjold is the
son of one of Sweden’s most not
able political families. From child
hood he has been a quiet, unassum
ing person, preferring solitary past-
times such as mountaineering and
cycling as well as intellectual in
terests like modern poetry and art.
By tirelessly listening to the con
flicting views of every delegate, he
has brought about innumerable
compromises in the U. N. and has
earned the reputation from his fel
low workers as a sterling example
of brilliance, descretion and im-
partiability. spring Mr. Hammerskjold
arranged for an Arab-Israeli cease
fire and early last year he negoti
ated successfully for the return of
American prisoners held by Com
munist China. In the current crisis
he has been responsible for the ad
mission of U. N. observers into
Hungary and the creation of the
new United Nations Emergency
Force which is the hope for peace
in the Egyptian crisis.
Battling enormous criticism and
apathy towards the U. N., this de
dicated man is recognized as one
of today’s strongest defenders of
world peace. Said Mr. Hammer
skjold, “We do not promise settle
ments of-, the world’s problems, but
I do believe in the possibility of an
orderly progress towards solutions
and that, for me, is enough as a
source of optimism.”
The World
In the Suez Canal situation, the
U. N. has voted overwhelmingly
for the withdrawal of French, Bri
tish and Israeli troops from Egypt
which will be replaced by the newly
created United Nations Emergency
Force. Some of the invasion troops
have departed but the main ques
tion is Flow long shall the U. N.
E. F. stay in Egypt and - what is
its ultimate function ?
The Egyptian point of view is
that the purpose of the U. N. E, F.
is merely to supervise the immedi
ate withdrawal of British and
French forces. Britain and France
say that they invaded Egypt be
cause Nasser was accepting Soviet
arms to invade Israel and was tak
ing over the Canal, therefore the
U. N. E. F. is in Egypt to prevent
this from happening again and
should stay there until the whole
problem is settled.
Our country says that the prob
lem will not be settled as long as
there are troops in Egypt and is
considering a long-range program
of aid to Egypt to win Nasser’s
friendship away from Russia.
Defeated by the terrorist cam
paign carried on by the puppet
government, the Hungarians have
been forced to end their valient
attempt to strike and are back at
work. They are still demanding,
however, the removal of Soviet
troops and the return of former
Premier Nagy who had led their
rebellion and has been kidnapped
by the Russians. Meanwhile the
refugees are escaping from Hun
gary by the hundreds. Our country
has offered asylum to 5,000 Hun
garians and reports say that this
number will soon be doubled.
An amusing new book just out
is H. Allen Smith’s Write Me A
Poem, Baby which is a collection
stones, poems, essays and even I
notes passed in class. A typical |
letter-—“Dear Motji: If we don’t!
write a letter home today we can-|
not have any lunch—Very Truly |
Yours Don.” And this short story |

Long Day’s Journey Into Nightl
by" the late Eugene O’Neill is one|

resolutions by offering simple char-1
acter development, The grim dance
of life is explained by one of the
characters who says, “None of us I

realize it, and once they’re done
they make you do other things

From Melborne comes the news
that the trouble and strife* of the

mountain of gifts including a splen

Citizens for Eisenhov/er-Nixon,
Mrs. Eisenhower said she felt very
grateful about spending the next
four years in the White House and

Bandleader Tommy Dorsey died
in his sleep Monday night. There
is a question as to the true cause
of his death, but it is assumed that
he died of suffocation. The be
spectacled ‘sentimental gentleman
of swing’ and his brother Jimmy j
were beloved by millions of music
lovers the world over.
In the political world it is in
teresting to note that Senator j
Theodore F. Green of Rhode Is
land has been named as chairman
of the Foreign Relations Com
mittee. Senator Green is the old
est senator in the U. , S. and al- j
though he has recently had to give
up wrestling and tennis, at 89 he
still walks the two miles from I
home to the office. Because of
poor health Clare Boothe Luce has
