Relocation Plan
New Two-Part Proposal Creates
Plan To Help Displaced Families,
A two-part proposal for relocation of families displaced in the
Urban Renewal Project was presented to City Council Monday night
by Ann Arbor's mayor, Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld of the political
science department.I
This proposal calls for the organization of a profit-making organi-
zation and a development foundation. The corporation would build and
operate a 30-unit apartment building to hold those families whose
homes are removed as part of the Project.
Subsidize Rents
The foundation would subsidize the rents paid by these families.
The rents for the $300,000 apartment structure would have to be $90

Proposed Changes
Special to The Daily
LANSING-The following is a summary of the new State
taxation plan recommended late last night by the Citizens'

Advisory Committee:
1. Graduated personal income tax, rates from
three to eight per cent . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ... . .
2. Net corporate income tax at a rate of five
per cent ...........................

9. New tax on beer (net gain) ....................
10. Increased tax on pari-mutuel ........,........


Total Gains...........$390,600,000

Both sides felt some progress
was made in getting a clearer
definition of ideas. But there was
no broad movement toward East-
West agreement.
Before the conference were ri-
val Soviet and American articles.
The Soviet draft of a treaty makes
only a vague reference to the con-
nection between controls and test
The United States document is
nailed down by pledging the sign-
ing powers to cooperate with an
international control organization
able to police any suspension.
Urge Neutralization
In another conference dealing
with preventing a surprise attack,
Soviet bloc delegates continued to
plug political proposals for neu-
tralization of wide areas of Cen-
tral Europe and the Middle East.
These proposals are an elabor-
ation of the plan advanced by
Polish Foreign Minister Adam
Rapacki several months ago for
an atom free zone in Middle
Europe, including both East and
West Germany.
Call Plan Vague
The West claims the Eastern'
proposals are outside the frame-'
work of the conference called to
discuss technical problems.
The Soviet proposals contain
references to land and aerial in-
spection systems but in language1
the West regards as vague. ,

1. Tangible personal property tax levied only on
inventories........................... ...
2. Sales tax rebate of $9 per person ... .......... .
3. Reductions in corporation franchise fees ......

U.S. Requests Soviets
To End Radio Jamming
UNITED NATIONS (AP)-The United States yesterday appealed to
the Soviet Union to end jamming of foreign radio broadcasts as one
way of removing barriers to friendly cooperation with the West,
United States delegate George M. Harrison estimated the Soviet
Union spends 100 million dollars a year to maintain 2,500 jamming
transmitters. Harrison told the United Nations Special Political Com-
mittee the Kremlin started out with a dozen in 1948 when the Russians

On Rise
Producers can probably look for
an upswing in sales in the near
future if the American consumer
continues his present buying
A marked increase in the re-
cession-minded consumer's pur-
chasing confidence during the
month of October was indicated
in a report released today by the
University Survey Research Cen-
Apparently the American con-
sumer is not in a mood to go on
a spending spree as confidence
and job security have not been
completely restored. One out of
every five Americans still worries
about job security, the nationwide
survey showed.
Outlook Good
But the outlook for prosperity
looks good if the trend indicated
last October continues.
More families than in May and
June of this year said that their
financial situation has taken a
turn for the better, that their in-
come is higher than a year ago,
and that they expect to be better
off in another year.
Rising prices were cited by the
Survey Research Center as the
most adverse factor holding down
buying intentions.
Consumer Cautious
As a result of the increased
prices, people are cautious about
making plans for major purchases.
The American consumer is in a
discriminating frame of mind, the
report commented.
. "They must be persuaded to buy
--by products which Are judged
to be attractive and servizeable,
offered at prices which are
thought to be 'right'," the survey
With personal incomes on an
upward trend and an improve-
ment in consumer attitudes, dur-
able goods sales may be on the
Have Faith
"People tend to assume that an
upward trend, once under way,
will continue, their faith in the
basic soundness of the economy
having grown strong in the post-
war period," the report said.
Pessimism tends to be associated
either with complaints about high
prices or with the observation
that unemployment is still high,
the report said.
Optimistic answers given to the
pollsters were often accompanied
by expressions such as . . . if
prices don't go too high ... unless
the cold war becomes worse., ex-
cept for occasional spells of un-

Gambling Discovered
At Colorado And Purdue
Recent crackdowns on parlay card gambling have been reported
at Colorado University in Denver and Purdue University in Lafayette,
A parlay card operation was wiped out at Colorado with the ar-
rest of a Harold A. Shore for suspicion of failing to pay a $50 a year,
federal gambling tax. In October,'
the local police and two staff
members of the Colorado Daily A NNA RBOR NEW,
joined forces to crack the ring.
Later, however, it was thought 01

interstate traffic and federal S r kr
agents were called in.
Shore was arrested by Treasury
agents while making a "pay-off"
to one of his "pushers," in a
Boulder tavern. He was taken to
Denver for charges to be preferred
against him in Federal Court,

began jamming broadcasts of they
United States State Department's
Voice of America.
He said this "army of jammers
is one of the largest radio systems
in the world" representing a capi-
tal investment of 250 million dol-
lars. He added:
"It is five or six times more ex-
pensive than all the broadcasting
of the Voice of America, in all
languages, to all parts of the
world. Yet it broadcasts nothing
but meaningless noise.
"Its purpose, which it partly ac-
complishes, is to shut off the
peoples of the Soviet Union and
the Soviet Communist bloc from
outside broadcasts in all their na-
tive languages.
This includes broadcasts not
only by the United States but by
other countries too - and even
by the United Nations itself."
Jamming is the deliberate
drowning out of a radio broadcast
with noise from another trans-
mitter using the same frequency.

SGC Plans
The University's discontinued
exchange with the Free University
of Berlin will be reported on at
tonight's Student Government
Council meeting, according to
SGC Executive Vice-President
Mort Wise, '59.
Robert Krohn, '60E, who has re-
turned from study at the German
school, will explain his trip and
what he feels was its value.
Wise said it is possible the
Council will hear debate on re-
viving the FUB exchange, or on
other possible exchange programs.
SGC will be told, according to
Wise, of Political Issues Club and
International Students Associa-
tion cooperation with the Coun-
cil's Sunday afternoon forums.


Picket as Officials Negotiate

The Purdue Exponent was the
first to call attention to the par-
lay card racket in Lafayette on
November 20. The Exponent stat-
ed that the cards were sold out in
the open and could be purchased,
very easily in any tobacco store
or bar.
In fact, "They are often on top
of the counter or on the bar," the
Exponent said.
The cards were still being sold

As strike negotiations proceeded in Lansing yesterday, apprehen-
sive groups both inside and outside The Ann Arbor News Building
nervously settled down to wait out the shutdown.
Small numbers of pickets stood casual guard around the building;
inside, the News staff was busy at various tasks. In both places, there
was a generally cheerful atmosphere, but little optimism, for the
feeling seems to be that the strike will continue for some time.
Cancel Wire Service
Booth Newspapers, Inc., the organization which owns the News
and seven other state papers, yesterday issued a 30-day cancellation
notice to The Associated Press and United Press International, to
permit removal of the wires' services if the walkout continues through
This move by News editor Arthur Gallagher was called an indica-
tion of "fear that the strike will run for a long time."
Several members of the striking International Typographical
Union echoed Gallagher's sentiments. One picket said he felt that
"if they don't settle it today, it's going to be a long, long strike,"
Staff Kept Busy
Meanwhile, the News staff is being kept busy. Besides regular
beat coverage, the paper is broadcasting a daily 15-minute news sum-
