Fiery Ags HP T> • 1 o Jt>rm Georgia, 40-20 Presidential Cup By DAVE COSLETT Aggie Greeters Oak Ridge Man Sets Nuclear Physics Talk Dr. Edward C. Campbell, research physicist from Oak Ridge, Tennessee, will speak! in the Physics Lecture Room at 8 p. m. Thursday on “Nu clear Reactor Piles’’, Dr. James G*. Potter, head of the Physics Department, announced today. Dr. Campbell’s talk will be ac companied by demonstration. Dr. Potter said. The discussion will be of a non-technigal nature and is open to the general public. At present, Dr. Campbell is assisting in research on reactor piles at Oak Ridge, under the Atomic Energy Commission. He was . Assistant Professor of Phy- ics at Princeton in 1942. He was also one of the many scientists who performed research on the first atomic bomb. Dr. Campbell was awarded his Bachelor of Arts degree from Michigan University in 1925 and his Ph. D. from' Oklahoma Univer sity in 1938. The lecture is sponsored by the A&M Physics Society, Potter added. It was a fiery march through Georgia, this 1950 trek that found a lad named Smith rather than a general named Sherman lead ing the way. This march, though, took place within the 100-yard confines of the Univer sity of Maryland’s new Byrd Stadium at College Park, Md. And though the Aggie team was on fire, 12,245 spectators in the stands and a size able number of press-box onlookers shivered in the 40 degree temperature. The initial Presidential Cup Bowl game lacked nothing but a decent crowd. Of color ful pageantry and spectacular football, it had plenty. There were several slightly colored faces in that press box, too—colored with embar rassment at having overlooked one Bruisin’ Writers Generous In Jrraise oj leam Francis St aim Washington (D.C.)

The wearer of the Maroon and White numeral 36 wasted no time in, raising a few eyebrows. The game was fifteen minutes late in starting. Smith more than made up for that lost time at his first encounter with the ball. The opening kick-off sailed straight to the great Aggie full-back who was waiting for it on the 2-yard line. He fumbled the ball, though, and had to chase it back to the Aggie goal-stripe. Then he got down to business. Behind beautiful blocking, he cut to his right and roared down the side-line. A lone Georgian, Fred Bilyeu, made a futile dive at him on the Georgia 40. From there on in the ♦ field was bis. Seventeen seconds after the game started Harrow Hooper was adding his first point-afer touch down for the day. The sprint seemed to be merely a warm-up for Smith. Before the dazzled spectators left the stands, they saw him account for 206 more yards—-158 rushing, 121 kick-off returns, 22 pass reception, and five passing. Eighty-one of the rushing yards came 45 seconds before the end of the first quarter when Bruisin’ Bob charged through a gaping hole at tackle to take another solo trip to pay-dirt. Not a Georgian touch ed him. ? Smith Tosses The five yards in the passing department came when Smith toss* ed his second aerial of the year, a running pass to Cedric Copeland who took it in the air on the Georgia five and a half. A touch down followed one play later. !: That touchdown was scored by Billy Tidwell who bested Smith in TD honors three tallies to two.

Jadreon Washington, Dec. 11—</Pi—Some American military men believe guerrilla warfare on the Chinese mainland by Chiang Kai-Shek’s forces, with some help, could do effective damage to the China Communists This opinion, expressed to a re porter today by officials who can not be named, is based on military factors. It does not take into ac count international, political and diplomatic considerations. Be cause of these latter factors and White House expressions of dis- J approval, there is reluctance to push the idea. One military view is that such operations would he of definite value as a diversionary operation to draw away some of the Chinese Communist strength now being poured into the war in Korea. President Truman has been cool ; to proposals to aid the Chinese Na- ; tionalist guerrilla effort because of the danger that Russia might ; seize upon such aid as pretext for openly intervening in the Asiatic 1 war. Nevertheless, it is known that some quiet, long-range studies are underway here which could be used if and when administration and diplomatic policies change. Among other developments, a j high ranking officer of one of the services who was an expert on guerrilla activities in the Far East during World War II has been brought back to Washington from an overseas assignment to help in the studies. Dispatches from the Far East suggest that a sizeable Nationalist guerrilla force exists in China. Spencer Moosa, Associated Press correspondent in Formosa, says es- ! timates range from less than 1,000,000 up to 1,600,000. But he I points out they arc poorly equip ped, with old arms and little am munition. And, he adds, they need a unified leadership. Gen. Douglas MacArthur was re ported to have wanted to accept, early in the Korean War, Chiang’s offer to send 33,000 of his Formosa troops to Korea to join in the war against the Communists. Wash ington turned thumbs down on his proposal for both political and ; military reasons. Aside from the now well-debated I political reasons, some high penta- | gon officials have opposed the idea on purely military grounds. One argument advanced has been that Chiang’s men would be more use ful in waging guerrilla warfare in South China.

Illinois, Tokyo, Dec. 11 — ( 7Pi — General MacArthur flew to Korea today for a hard look at his heavily-hit United Nations command. He said it remains unbeaten, relatively se cure, and able to battle the Chinese hordes. His secret visit to both the northwest and northeast fronts came as the last elements of 25,000 bone-cold, unshaven American ma rines and doughboys streamed down onto the Hamhung coastal plain from a series of Red traps near Changjin Reservoir. A huge fleet stood off Ham- hung’s port of Hungman. But whether it would evacuate the wea ry, outnumbered U. S. 10th Corps units in the northeast remained to be seen. The northwest front was relatively quiet. Mac Optimistic There was a note of guarded op timism in MacArthur’s statement to correspondents after he return ed to Tokyo from his quick trip to the warfrouts. He had confer red on-the-spot with his top gen erals. “The United Nations command, in spite of its recent heavy fight ing, is in excellent shape with high morale and conspicuous self confi dence,” the U. N. commander said. “Although heavily outnumbered it has come through in a superior manner. “The enemy’s claims of United Nations losses in men and material are fantastically exaggerated. We are being forced to give ground but our fighting capacity has suffered little general impairment.” He added that the Chinese Reds had failed in a plan “to encompass Henderson Club to Party The Henderson County Club will hold a dinner and dance for the boys attending A&M from that county at the Athens Country Club on Dec. 21, J. D. Martin, ’30, of Henderson County Junior College, reported in u letter, today. our destruction by one massive stroke.” “All our units are intact and the losses inflicted on the enemy have been staggering—estimated by lo cal commanders in the field as high as 10 to one compared to our own,” MacArthur said. It was the General’s first state ment to correspondents on the Ko- | roan campaign since he personally j directed the Allied end-the-war of- | fensive at daybreak Nov. 24—a J push turned into a full retreat the j night of Nov. 25 by bugle-blaring i hordes of Chinese infantry. It was evident that MacArthur ! was concerned seriously about the condition of his forces, particularly , the U. S. First Marine Division j and units of the Army’s Seventh !

Thirty-two of the players re ported losses when they began to dress following the game. Representative Olin E. (Tiger) Teague and President M. T. Har rington came to the rescue and made up the players’ losses, at least for the time-being. The dressing room had been locked all during the game and had been guarded by Barlow (Bones) Irvin and 4 University of Maryland staff member excApt for 4 15-minute period duriirg which an Inteitral Revenue Inspector and a member of the campus police force were there. • The team members had hung j their clothes on wooden pegs in ; the new dressing room. The thief : or thieves methodically emptied pockets and bill-folds. Two expen sive billfolds were taken. No oth- i <Sr articles other than money were reported lost.
