Call NOBLE HOTEL. 33 West Pointers Are Now Civilians WEST POINT N. Y,. Aug, 15 V—Thirty-three of the 90 accused Military Academy cadets are civilians today, most of them slated for early dates with their draft boards unless they gain admittance to other colleges. Their glum exodus from the academy marked the beginning of the greatest mass expulsion in the 150-year history o( the "point." AJ1 90 are accused of violating the West Point honor code by cheating on examinations, Col. James B. Ixer, academy information officer, said yesterday that "almost all" of the departing 33 had resigned—rather than be waived out of the Army under administrative discharges. The cadets who resigned left un- der an administrative order, which implies neither an honorable nor a dishonorable discharge. They received 30-day emergency leaves. When the leaves expire, those not already registered for selective service must report to their local draft boards. Each departing cadet was interviewed by Maj. Gen. Frederick A. Irving, academy superintendent. Col, I_«er said Irving told each cadet he was "confident" they would rise above this and have a successful career." At least lf> more of the accused cheaters will be fully processed today and. take their "last walk" through the academy gates. The remainder of the 90 are expected to be gone by the end of the week. Confused Korean Vet Can't Get Pay; He Fought as a Civilian CHICAGO, Aug. 15. (AP)—Henry O. olszewski thought he was in the Navy when he was ducking those Communist bullets in the Korean War zone. Now Olsrewski, 34, a little bewildered, is at the Great Lakes, 111. naval training station awaiting his official discharge. He was discharged, really, before all this came about. This is his story: Olszewski became a machinist repairman, 1st class, in World War II. He saw action at Okinawa and Sal- pan and then came home to his wife. Loretta, in Chicago. They now have a son. Joey, 17 months old. After Olszewski returned, he was attached to a naval reserve unit. Then, in 1D50, he applied for his discharge, On Oct. 9, 1950, however, he was ordered back to active duty. He inquired about his discharge, but was told it hadn't gone through. Olszewskf was shipped to Korea and assigned to the Askarl, an LST He saw bitter action in the Hung- nam operation and evacuation for 10 days last December. He moved on to Pusan in April, 1S51. and saw more action. He won the Korean medal and managed to escape wounds. One day. while Olszewski was resting up for more battles, a yeoman, or ship's clerk, approached him. He had been studying Olszew- skl's service record. "Hey, bud," the yeoman said, "you might as well Jay down your tools " "Why?" asked Olszewskl. "You haven't been in the Navy since July 17. 1950." the yeoman replied. "That was the day you were discharged." Olszewski landed back at Great Lakes - June 1. He's sitting there waiting for the snarl to be untangled. A navy disbursement officer ruled that Olszewski can't be paid because he's not In the Navy. A Navy spokesman explained the matter was just a slipup, which might happen In any organization Olszewski's only comment was' "I am a little bewildered."

UND£« AUTHORITY OF THf COCA-COIA COMPANY BY "Col." I, COCA-COLA BOTTLING CO. OF BLYTHEVILLE They Like it a Million! -Last -week Buick set a proud record. The millionth Dynaflow Drive* •was delivered to a happy owner. That's a new peak in popularity for modern drives which take you from a standing start to any cruising speed desired with a smooth, unfaltering swoop of power. "The biggest advance since the self- Starter" is what the motorwise press • called this Buick development back in 1948—and now a million owners can tell you how right that proved 1 to be. Here, they found, was a basically different way of delivering power. It was the first drive to get com- pletely away from any gears which function in a series of fixed stages— the first to apply supercharging principles that did new tricks with spinning oil. And how folks loved it! They loved the freedom from strain in traffic. And the new "sweetness" of ride which every passenger could epjoy. They loved the command it gives them of every traffic situation — and the relaxation it contributes to a long day's drive. / They loved its extra safety in slippery going, and the improved control in mud and snow. As they had a chance to pile up experience, they loved the unexpected savings of rear tire wear and reduced strain on all driving parts, from engine to differential. And finally —they loved what it does for the value of a Buick, as reflected in the extra dollars that Dynaflow* adds to the resale price of a car.t Have you sampled this driving sensation? There's no time like the present for discovering the thrills that more than a million Buick owners already know.
