House passes
B proposal
By The Associated Press
In an unexpected move yesterday, the House voted ap-
proval of a $2.5 million deployment fund for the Safeguard
antimissile system.
The money was included in a $1.55 billion military con-
struction authorization bill, assertedly by mistake.
The House decided by a resounding voice vote to leave
the section with the ABM funds in the bill. The Pentagon
said Monday the $2.5 million item was included in the House
measure some time ago on the assumption Safeguard deploy-
ment would have been approved by now.
Although the House has passed the measure, the ABM
proposal must face the Senate. Voting in the almost evenly

Gardner Ackley, who has been
serving as U.S. ambassador to
Italy, is returning to the Univer-
sity to ,accept a Distinguished Uni-
versity Professorship.
The former chairman of the
President's Council of Economic
Advisers will fill the newly estab-
lished Henry Carter Adams Uni-
versity Professorship of Political
"We are very happy that Profes-
sor Ackley has decided to resume
his active association with the
University," University president
Robben Fleming said.
Ackley was chairman of the
University's Department of Econ-
omics in 1962, when he asked for
a leave of absence to accept Presi-
dent John F. Kennedy's offer to
become a member of the Council
of Economic Advisers.
President Lyndon B. Johnson
named him chairman of the Cotn-
cil in 1964. In January of 1968,
Ackley was nominated to be am-
bassador to Italy.
The University's Economics De-
partment suggested the Distin-
guished University Professorship in
the name of Henry Carter Adams,
who taught economics here from
1881 until 1921. The faculty also
proposed Ackley for the chair. The
professorship and the appointment
were informally approved by the
Regents earlier this year.
"Ackley's career to date," said
urrent department chairman
Prof. Harvey E. Brazer, "provides
ample evidence of his tremendous
capacities as outstanding scholar,
teacher, and public servant. Clear-
ly he is distinguished, as was

Ackley, who earned his master's
degre and Ph.D. -from Michigan
after undergraduate years at West-
ern Michigan University, was born
in Indianapolis. He joined the
University faculty in 1940, served
with the Office of Price Admin-
istration during World War II, re-
turning to the University in 1946.
During the Korean War he was
V assistant director of the Office of
Price Stabilization. He was named
chairman of the economics depart-
ment in 1955. Ackley is author of
the widely-used "Macroeconomic
Theory," published in 1961.

WASHINGTON () - The tax
reform bill was sweetened yester-

tax relief, mostly for low and

Capt. Dan Myre, head of the
state police detective division said
yesterday, "We don't have Collins
definitely tied in with any of the
other killings. There are no facts
to indicate a connection between
the Salinas killing and the killings
in Michigan."
Although Krasny said Califor-
nian officials will have to conduct
their own investigation which has
no bearing on the case that Mich-
igan authorities allegedly have
against Collins, evidence indicates
that Collins is a "fair suspect" in
the slaying of Phillips in Salinas.
Capt. Darol Smith of the Mon-
tery, Calif. County Sheriff's office
said yesterday officials there have
established that Collins was in
Salinas the day before the disap-
pearance of Phillips.

The committee's original taxj
rate revision did not include any
rate cuts for the lowest five in-

special low income provisions to
provide relief there.
These brackets run up to $4,000I

1971 and 1972.
The reduction will affect not
only persons whose entire income
is in those brackets but everyone
with higher income, reducing the I
levy on the first $4,000 or $8,000 '
income taxed.
The committee also provided an
extra one percentage point cut fort
the two brackets covering taxable
incomes from $10,000 to $12,000;
for a single person, $20,000 to
$24,000 for a couple.

total in tax cuts, by 1979, to $9.2
billion, no longer completely bal-
anced by revenue-raising changes,
which amount only to $6.8 billion.

came midway during a hearing byI

floor. A vote is expected tomorrow.
Mills asked for the closed rule
customary on tax measures, bair-
ring amendments except those
proposed by the Ways and Means
Committee itself.
Members of the DSG, however,j
pressed for a modified rule that'
would have allowed them to offer
amendments on the rate scale and
also to delete from the bill its pro-

charge at five per cent from Jan. 1
through July 31, 1970.

Reforms spice up dorn

Sweeping recommendations for
improving dormitory food serv-
ice will be at least partially in
effect by September, Assistant
Director of University Housing
Edward Salowitz said yesterday.
The report, done by a team
of experts who visited each dorm
on campus, found that the food
service system suffers from over-
institutionalization and inef-
ficiency and criticized the food
service staff for treating stu-
dents as a captive audience
rather than guests.
Salowitz and Housing Director
John Feldkamp said some of the
recommendations have been act-
ed on already and others are
being studied. The report by the
