AROUND THE COUNTRY
With time running short, 11 top
candidates yesterday shot the
works with a killing pace of per
sonal appearances and radio
television addresses arguing issues
ranging from peace to prosperity,
Korea ' to Communism. Gen.
Dwight D. Eisenhower, Repub
lican presidential candidate, and
Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio, a
major supporter, were keeping
the Korean War in the forefront.
Gov. Adlai Stevenson, Eisen
hower's Democratic opponent, and
Pres. Truman, Stevenson's lead
ing backer, were talking of pros
perity for the Little Man, and
predicting a Democratic victory
six days hence.
ABOARD STEVENSON SPEC
IAL Gov. Adlai E. Stevenson
opened his bid yesterday for
Pennsylvania's important bloc of
32 electoral votes by labeling the
Republicans obstructionists in the
fight for social gains. Stevenson
stood bare-handed in a raw wind
that whipped snow flakes around
him as he told thousands at
Scranton that "The Democrats
have proved their concern for the
average man through legislation
such as the minimum wage law."
"This was done in spite of the
Old Guard Republicans," he
NEW YORK Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower, pointing a power
house drive at the big voting
centers around New York City,
says a "top secreet document"
on Korea is being used against
him by his political enemies. He
did not identify the. document
other than to describe it as "a
top secret document of the
American Defense Department."
In a radio broadcast he said, "This
morning, there was' a very signi
ficant item in the paper. It was
this: There was quoted a top
secret document of the Ameri
can Defense Department. How it
got there, we will never know,

SEOUL United Nations troops,
on the alert1 for another "human
sea" assault on Pinpoint Hill,
forced 1,000 Chinese forming east
of Sniper Ridge to dispense last
night under a deadly rain of ar
tillery fire. The barrage hit the
Communist formation about 7
o'clock, but it was too dark to
tell how many casualties were in
flicted. Allied infantrymen cap
tured Pinpoint Hill yesterday in
an attack that began at dawn
in near-freezing weather. They
reached the crest at 10:30 a.m.
and began herding the Reds
down the northern slopes with
grenades, bavonets and rifle fire.
Fresh forest fires spread across
widely scattered sections of the
Carclinas yesterday, throatonir
thousands of acres of valuable
woodland. Cold winds, which shot
the mercury down to freezing,
fanned the costly blazes and the
weather man could promise no
rain to ease the work of the weary
firefighters. Forest fires, helped
by a. long dry spell, crackled in
several areas yesterday from the
mountains to the coast of both
states and a heavy pall of smoke

extra-curricular organizations on
campus passed resolutions in sup
port of the administration's re
quest for funds to build a new,
larger, more centrally located stu

For the past year a group of
interested students, faculty mem

the case for a new union build

a formal proposal to the Board
of Trustees and subsequently to
the Advisory Budget Commission,
where the proposal is now being
considered. The Budget Commis

bill calling for all-out war in Ko
