GOP Ready
To Liquiate
Trust ,.Fund
Williams Asks Higher
Sum Than Senators
{ B'y The Associated Press
LANSING - Republican Sena-
tors seemed willing to cash the
$40 million Veteran's Trust Fund
3esterpay, but a new disagree-
ment over Michigan's fiscal needs
boded more trouble in the 10-
month state tax dispute.
Gov. G. Mennen Williams and
Republican lawmakers got off to
a bad start in hurry-up efforts to
write a new tax program for debt-
ridden Michigan.
Senate and House Republicans
set- 70 million dollars as the
amount of emergency taxes need-
ed annually to meet the state's
money needs.
Asks 110 Millions
Gov. Williams called for 110
million dollars, the amount struck
from the revenue structure by a
State Supreme Court decision
throwing out the increased use
(sales) tax.
The Democratic governor as-
sailed the GOP proposal as "sim-
ply preposterous."
Unless Republicans raise the
figure "substantially," the state
won't be able to pay for legisla-
tive appropriations and "drastic
cuts" in state services will follow,
Williams said.
No Cutbacks
Republican tax leaders asserted
their proposal would not necessi-
tate any sizable cutbacks in ap-
propriations or state services.
Seventy millions- in new taxes,;
coupled with a steady growth in
tax collections, another mora-
torium on new construction and
various economies, should carry
the state for a year, they said.
The new plan does not contem-
plate any sizable payment for. re-
tirement of the state debt.

sidered the. figure inadequate and

Sen. Frank D. Beadle (R-St.
Clair), Senate majority leader, in-
dicated the Veterans Trust Fund
probably would be released as a
condition of any bipartisan agree-
ment on new taxes. The 50 million
dollars worth of securities in the
fund could be sold for about 40
millions, taking care of the state's
most pressing cash needs. (Rep.
George Sallade, Ann Arbor Repub-
lican, said there, was "no ques-
tion" about cashing theI Trust
Fund once other disagreements
are ironed out.)


Critics Rap
As Useless
Six living units or campus
organizations at Northwestern
University have decided that pre-
paration of Homecoming floats
and decorations is neither worth
their time, efforts, or money.
Consequently, the groups will
not prepare expensive decorations
for this weekend, but will continue
with traditional plans to otherwise
entertain alumni.
The move to de-emphasize floats
and decorations originated in
action by the Theta Chi executive
council, Jim Eckelberger, president
of the fraternity, said.
But a meeting of representatives
from both men's and women's or-
ganizations at the Theta Chi house
to consider discussion of the move
was cancelled Wednesday, Oct. 14,
when the Northwestern adminis-
tration decided it would have to
be chaperoned.
Theta Chi then revealed their,
intentions to determine the all-
campus fraternity feeling.
Following Theta Chi's sugges-
tion, one other house decided to
withdraw from float and house
decoration competition. Pi Kappa
Alpha, winner of Homecoming
trophies in both 1956 and 1957,
issued the following statement:
"Pi Kappa Alpha has decided to
withdraw this year's homecoming
"We have taken this stand in

Headlhess Horseman Still Rides at EMU

Special to The Daily
YPSILANTI-The dark quiet of the Eastern Michigan University
campus was shattered last Thursday night by the thud of horses'
hooves and the cries of two black-cloaked riders.
One was dressed in high-button shoes with a name-brand paper
wrap serving as silver buckles. White high-top socks rose under black
knickers, which contrasted with a white ruffled blouse.
Onthe rider's head were a woman's wig and a plumed hat, on
his nose a pair of spectacles, and on his lapel a Delta Sigma Phi pin.
Behind him trotted a black plug, ridden by a black graduation
robe which carried a lighted pumpkin under its right arm. (The
pumpkin's glow, incidentally, did not flicker; a flashlight protruding
from the back of its head served its purpose.)
The riders began their chase around the university grounds to
publicize an all-campus dance.
