the federal government supplying
the rest.
The loans under this bill are

Minas Gerais
Goulart late yesterday ordered
troops to smash the revolt in
Minas Gerais. At the same time,
the Communist-dominated Gen-
eral Command of Workers called
a general strike to begin at mid-
night in support of Goulart.
This was before word reached
Rio that the revolt had spread to
Sao Paulo.
The president ordered troops of
the first army here to move
against rebels in the strongly anti-
Communist neighboring state of
Minas Gerais where a "revolu-
tionary capital" was proclaimed at
Juiz De Fora, 80 miles north of
Rio De Janeiro.
Capital Move
He sent the troops both against
Juiz De Fora and the state capital,
Belo Horizonte, where the gov-
ernment had proclaimed himself
in support of the movement to
overthrow Goulart.
The president declared in a
statement to the nation that the
revolt would be smashed within a
few hours.
Reports here said that a bat-
talion of shock troops and the 5th
n infantry regiment stationed at
y nearby Petropolis moved out yes-
t terday for Juiz De Fora. A rebel
r general there had accused Goulart
of being manipulated by Com-

.Named As
Prof. Samuel J. Eldersveld has
been named chairman of the poli-
tical science department.
He will replace Prof. Arthur W.
Bromage who is resigning at the
end of the present semester. Prof.
Bromage at his appointment
agreed to serve a three-year term
which will end next month.
There is no anticipation of any
major changes in the policy of
the department.
Prof. Bromage stated that he
had enjoyed very much his chair-
manship. He tried to emphasize
incorporation of "new blood" into
the department. Also during his
chairmanship the number of
teaching fellows was increased to
handle the growing enrollment.
He stated that he will be glad,
however, to return to teaching
and research which is inevitably
sacrificed somewhat to adminis-
trative duties.
Eldersveld, a Democrat, has
been the only nominee of his
party to be elected mayor of Ann

In other action, the Regents re-
appointed Prof. Wesley Maurer as
chairman of the journalism de-
partment for a two-year term, ef-
fective July 1.
This appointment will mark
Prof. Maurer's closing tour of duty
at the University. He is set to re-
tire from the faculty at the end
of this two-year term.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON - Rep. George
Meader (R-Mich) of Ann Arlor
has reported that he expects Con-
gress to appropriate the necessary
funds for a $2.5 million federal
water pollution laboratory in Ann
Arbor, even though the request
was not included in President.

quests for the coming fiscal year;
Meader said that when the ap-
propriations bill is reported to the
full House Committee on Approp-
riations on or about April 10, he
is confident the money for the
laboratory will be included in the
The proposal is currently lodged
in one of the various appropria-
tions subcommittees which are
hammering out the provisions of
the bill.
Not Included
-The University deeded some 10
acres of its property on North
Campus to the federal government
just a year ago in anticipation
of the construction of the labora-
tory, which will be under the jur-
isdiction of the Department of
Health, Education and Welfare.
Many observers however had felt
that the facility was dead for the

time being when funds were not
included in President Johnson's
proposals to Congress.
The water pollution laboratory,
which would employ some 150
persons at the beginning, with
expansion planned, is to occupy a
patch of ground at the northeast
corner of the North Campus area,
where land is reputed to be worth
about $4000 an acre.
The site is adjacent to another
deeded to, the federal government

of Commercial fisheries laboratory
is currently under construction.

officially classed as a regional
facility, the water pollution em-

would deal with problems of water
pollution for 14 midwestern states.
Meetings have been underway
periodically between representa-
tives of all the Big Ten schools
and the University of Chicago to
discuss the joint roles , of the
schools in connection with the lab.

quest is inserted in committee,

Indiana Law
On Sedition
{ BLOOMINGTON-Indiana Cir-
cuit Judge Nat U. Hill has de-
clared a 1951 Hoosier sedition stat-
ute unconstitutional.
The law, passed "to extermin-
ate Communism and Communists
and any or all teachings'of the
same," was struck down after
Judge Hill heard arguments for
dismissal of two indictments
against three former Indiana Uni-
versity students who were mem-
bers of a Trotskyite group on the
Bloomington campus.
The decision was limited simply
to a statement that the law was
unconstitutional and an order dis-
missing charges.
Off the bench, however, Judge
Hill, a Republican, told the press
that he based his decision on the
grounds that federal anti-subver-
sion legislation superseded the
state legislation.
A courtroom packed with stu-
dent spectators cheered the deci-
sion which erased the threat of
imprisonment for the defendants.
All three students were officers
in the campus chapter of the
Young Socialist Alliance, which
they claim to be in "basic politi-
cal agreement" with the Trotskyite
Socialist Workers party. The local
chapter had no more than 20
members on a campus of 19,000
students. The national group, how-
ever, has about 1000 members
across the nation.
In this case, Monroe County
Prosecutor Thomas A. Hoadley, a
Republican, stressed the charge
that the state, rather than the
federal government, was the tar-
get of what he called "the liberal
left of the Communist movement."'
Much of the prosecutions evi-
dence was derived through tape'
recordings and eavesdroppers' ac-
counts of alleged conversationsl
between the defendants and their
