Calling It 'Gigantic Pork Barrel'
Late Permission Is Granted;

Close to 300 couples danced last
night from 10 until 3 o'clock at the
Union in the Senior ball of the 1932
Led in the colorful grand march
by Josephine McCausey, '34, and
Lawrence Whitsit, '32, the general
chairman of the ball committee,
the merrymakers were surrounded
by a festive decorative scheme bas-
ed on a spring flower motif well
adapted to a spring formal dance.
Music was supplied by Joe Sand-
ers and his Kansas City Night-
hawks, successors to the famous
team of Coon-Sanders that was
broken up by the untimely death
of Carlton Con a few weeks ago.
The orchestra was engaged in the
place of Isham Jones, who was un-

The President's statement came
while the bill was being whipped
into shape for introduction, with
plans already made for hearings

himself plans to be the first wit-
ness for it.
The President said in part:
"The urgent question today is
the prompt balancing of the bud-
get. When that is accomplished, I
propose to support adequate meas-
ures for relief of distress and un-
employment. In the meantime, it is
essential that there should be an
understanding of the character of
the draft bill made public yester-
day in the House of Representa-
tives for this purpose.
"That draft bill supports some
proposals we have already made
in aid to unemployment through
the use of the Reconstruction Fin-
ance Corp. But in addition it pro-
poses to expend about $900,000,000
for Federal public works.

"I believe the American people
will grasp the economic- fact that
such action would require appro-
priations to be made to the Fed-
eral department, thus creating a
deficit in the budget that could
only be met with more taxes and
more Federal bond issues.

that an unbalanced budget means
the loss of confidence of our people
and of other nations in the credit
and stability of the Government,

A general reduction of University salaries ranging from six to
ten per cent, and effecting a total salary budget reduc'tion of approxi-
mately 1 ' per cent, was adopted at the regular meeting of the board
of regents yesterday afternoon.
The procedure was to adjust indivdual salaries with the end of
getting all salaries on an equitable basis, according to a statement
issued to the press by Regent R. Perry Shorts immediately after the
meeting. It was pointed out that in some individual cases the reduc-
tion amounted to 26.8 per cent, although the total amount was about
11 per cent. The University hospital would not be affected by the
