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. Clothesline 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! —Anne Catlette iBy Judy Graham Pi-esid.ent, Student Government \nnc' llrnce has announced that the Las.i pud Found will be open in the Committee Room of the Student' Center every Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 1:30 to 1:50- '^ou may turn m anyth.ing, you find to Anne at any- liine, hut please observe these hours for picking up lost articles. There are already many fountain pens, cigarette lighters, etc in the Lost and Found. Please check to see if Ihcre is anything there be longing to you. Several reminders: Out of town sign-outs with late permission must sign-in in the out-of-town book as well as the night watchman’s book. Quite a number of girls seem to he having difficulty dismissing their dates on time. Again, this is your individual responsibility— not your house president’s. Call downs have been given for this in (he past, hut the council has had to give so many call downs that it is evident that this penalty is non-effective. Therefore, we have decided that if much of this con tinues, we will be forced to devise News Briefs Because of requests for more op portunities to speak French, Span ish, and German, professors in each of these departments have agreed to head tables during the regular dinner hour and to direct the con versation, in a particular language. Students interested in joining one of these groups are asked to sign up on the bulletin board in the dining room. The project is under the spoilsorship of the International Relations Club. ♦ * ♦ An academic council faculty meeting is being held this after noon to discuss problems related to expansion and an increase in the number of students and teach ers next year.

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 Hammarskjold. 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. La.st 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. Entertainment 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 | “Once upon a time there was a| little girl named Clarise Nancy In-| grid LaRose. She had no hair and I rather large feet. But she was ex-| tremely rick and the rest was easy.”[ Ah, innocent childhood. Long Day’s Journey Into Nightl by" the late Eugene O’Neill is one| of the finest productions now ap pearing in New York. According! to critic Henry Heeves of the! Saturday Review O’Neill takes the I familiar theme of the destruction! of the conventional family and| avoids conscious plots and phony} 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 can help the things life has done to us. They’re done before you realize it, and once they’re done they make you do other things until at last everything comes be-1 tween you and what you’d like to be, and you’ve lost your true self | forever.” From Melborne comes the news that the trouble and strife* of the world situation have moved in on the 1956 Olympics now taking place in Australia. Holland and Spain have withdrawn in protest to the Hungarian situation, Lebanon, Egypt and Iraq have kept their athletes home because of the Mid dle East conflict and Oommunist | China left when 46 men from Na tionalist China were admitted to I the competition. Said Emil Zato- pek, Czechoslovakia’s veteran dis-' tance runner, “The atmosphere of the games has been ruined. To have this sudden shadow of strife j and misery cast over the whole affair so late in the day is a great | disappointment.” People Due to his heavy schedule of gym workouts, dancing classes and tutoring sessions Prince Charles of England celebrated his eighth birthday a day early. Youthful-looking Mamie Eisen hower also had a birthday last j week—her 60th. Surrounded by a ] mountain of gifts including a splen did portrait from the National I Citizens for Eisenhov/er-Nixon, Mrs. Eisenhower said she felt very grateful about spending the next four years in the White House and in answer to a question concerning his present to his wife Ike laughed | and said, “That’s our secret!” Conrad Hilton will open his newest swank hotel in Mexico City j on December 7. It’s the Hilton j Continental and by the way, any one see Eloise on television last j Thursday night ? 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 resigned her position as Ambassa- j dor to Rome. Mrs. Luce is a wo man of many talents having been I the editor of Vogue and Vanity! Fair magazines, Rejpublican Con-1 gresswoman from Connecticut fori two terms and a playwright (Tl'®| Women).
