Chain Letter 'Factories' Swamped By Missouri Fans
Be Effected In
Council Approves Figures
Prepared By Committee
A reduction of nearly $20,000 in
the annual budget of the city of Ann
Arbor was foreshadowed last night
when the city council as a committee
of the whole referred the budget to
the council with a recommendation
of approval at a meeting yesterday.
The budget will formally be sub-
mitted to the council at its next regu-
lar meeting May 20, as a result of the
approval that was expressed at the
special meeting. The chief item of
the budget that held the attention
of the council in its debate was the
question of allowing two additional
men for the police department.

Alderman Max Krutsch stated.

with the men we have; 30 policemen
for this town is enough," the council-
It has been understood that the
two men, if added to the department,
would be used for scout car duty. The

No changes were made in the first
draft of the budget, which remains
the same as when it was set up by
the budget committee or the common
council. Due to decreases in the
estimates of expenditures submitted
by several of the departments of the
city a material reduction in the size
of the total budget.
The total this year is $463,216.41
as compared to last year's figure of
$482,604.98. Only three of the de-
partments submitted estimates over
the figure submitted last year, and
these, when summed up, amounted to
much less than the reductions that
were effected by the other depart-
