Great Britain
Gears Budget
And Taxation
T New.Hgh
War Outlay Almost Equal
To 1917-18 Still Liable
To New Expenditures
Plan Complete Shift
In Economic Setup
LONDON, April 23.-()-Great
Britain, less than eight months at
war, today geared her spending for
the 1940-41 fiscal year to virtually
the same staggering total which she
paid in the final, exhausting year of
the World War, imposed heavy new
taxes to meet part of the cost and
gave official impetus to a revolu-
tionary economic scheme under
which the British consumer is ex-
pected to rigidly "do without."
The total of the budget which
Chancellor of the Exchequer Sir
John Simon drew from his little
red dispatch case in the House of'
Commons is 2,667,000,000, or $9,-
334,500,000 at the New York Ex-
change rate of approximately $3.50
and considerably more at the Bri-
tish "pegged" rate of $4.02-$4.04.
It amounts (at the New York rate)
to '$230 for every man, woman and
child in Great Britain. More than
half must be borrowed.
Moreover this budget figure,
(which, naturally, is an estimate
very likely to be exceeded by sup-
plementary war expenditures), com-
pares with expenditures in the
1917-18 fiscal year of £2,96,221,000.
That per capita bill for carrying
on both the government and the war
is more than three times the per
capita cost of the United States
federal government, in 1939-$70.
As for the cost of the war itself,
r John told the House that Great
ritain spent E905,000,000 (about
$3,167,000'000) in the first seven;
months of the conflict.
He declared that figure indicated
an annual war expenditure at the
rate of about £1,500,000,000 ($5,250,-
000,000), but that the estimate was
rising and the rate of annual expen-
diture would be £2000,000,000 (about
$7,000,000,000) by the end of the
fiscal year next March.
The budget represents an increase
in the expenditure of £850,000,000
($2,975,000,000) over the 1939-40
Ypsi Sluggers
Pound Varsity
For 7-3 Win
Good Pitching In Clutches
And Unusual Fielding
Bring Hurons Victory
A cocky, hard-hitting gang from
Michigan Normal that refused to be
cowed into submission by its Big Ten
rival, meted out a severe blow to the
Wolverines' prestige when the Ypsis
crew rudely upset the Varsity at Ferrye
Field yesterday afternoon by the
score of 7-3.
It was a tough afternoon for Mich-~
igan. The Hurons showed little re-
spect for four Varsity pitchers in-
cluding ace Jack Barry who was

charged with the defeat. All in all,
Coach Ray Fisher used 15 men in a#
vain attempt to stem the Ypsi upris-
But the real reason behind the Wol-
verine setback can probably be ex-
plained by Ray Dennis' tight pitching
in the clutches and some spectacular
defensive support that the visiting
hurler received from his mates, a
combination of factors that left 15
Michigan baserunners stranded on1
the bases.
The Wolverinf s hopped off to a
1-0 lead in the first inning. Don
Holman walked, moved to second on
an infield out and scored on Step-1
pon's base hit to left .field.
Normal v asn't long in getting the
run back, however. Husky Pat Hef-t
fernan, Huron outfielder, caught holda
of one oz Barry's fast balls in the
second, and clouted it into the tennis
courts 425 feet away for a prodig-
idus home run.
Came the third and the deluge.
Joe Grady opened the inning forf

Carva llo Talks
On Tolerance
Tells Of Intermarriage
As Racial Solution
By intermarriage and racial in-'
tolerance tamong the people who
make up Brazil, seemingly formid-
able landlord-slave obstacles have
been almost entirely wiped out, as
well as persistent colonist-native
distrust, according to Dr. Car]os
Delgado de Carva"iho.
Dr. Carvalho, a noted Brazilian
geographer and sociologist, who is
delivering a series of lectures here
on modern Brazil, spoke on the in-
termingling of three separate races,
white, Negro, and Indian in his home
Last vestiges of the Portuguese
plantation owners, the extreme up-
per crust of Brazilian society, have
not mingled white with colored
blood. save in a few instances, but
according to Doctor Carvaho. there
exists no prejudice against the half
caste, and inter-racial unions are
commonplace in all other strata of
society. There is, the lectured con-
ceded, an economic barrier between
the three races, the white inhabi-
tants generally enjoying greater se-
curity than the less industrious, less
educated Negro and Indian.

More than 150 graduates of the
School of Business Administration
are expected to attend the 13th An-
nual Alumni Conference of the

Elections At Meeting
Tomorrow In Union
Most important business on the
agenda for the 'Student Senate which
meets at 7:30 p.m. tomorrow in the.
Union for, the last time before elec-
tions is the consolidation and ac-
tion to be taken on the results of
the Spring Parley, Arnold White,
'41, secretary, announced yesterday.
In the Parley panel on "Univer-
sity Training" the Senate was de-
scribed as the "most democratic,
most repiesentative and Yeast ef-
fective , organization on campus."
Several suggestions underlying its
ineffectivness were: student apathy
and inertia and the immaturity of
the student body. Moreover, it was
resolved that a functional commit-
tee should be set up to investigate
the problem of immaturity of the
students for further study by the
Senate. This phase of the Parley,
White indicated, will occupy the
Senate for some time.
Also scheduled for discussion Is
the Senate election which will be
held Friday. More general discus-
sion is promised on a topic which
White calleds: "Which Flag-Amer-
ican or Nazi?" Remainder of the
meeting will be taken up with com-

(By the Associated Press )
Germany and the British-French-
Norwegian allies battled last night
(Tuesday) for the "gate" to Oslo
in the most significant of a series
of grim and gory combats by land,
sea and air on which may hinge
the future of invaded Norway.
To Britons, the fighting in Nor-
way was the most sensational man-
ifestation of a war newly-designated
by one unofficial spokesman as one
againstthe "whole German people"
-not merely the Nazi regime o:
Adolf Hitler.
"Defeat Germany"
Alfred Duff Cooper, former Bri-
tish war secretary and former First
Lord of the Admirality, called in a
St. George's Day addr.ess for defeal
of the whole German people anc
warned that a defeated Germany
need not expect sympathy by "whin-
ing and groveling," as he described
them at the Versailles Conference
after the World War.
, The British war office said of the
Norwegian fighting merely that the
Allies are resisting "enemy pressure'
in the south of Norway, but Ger-
many acknowledged for the first
time that British and German troops
were fighting in central Norway, and
reports from Stockholm and various
unofficial sources filled out this gi-
gantic jig-saw of the Scandinavian
battle scene:
A major battle taking shape some
90 miles north of Oslo at and around
Lillehammer, where the Gudbrand-
sal Valley gives access to the south-
ern plain leading to German-occu-
pied Oslo;

Garg Sale Starts Tomorrow;
So E

Rain or no rain, Gargoyle will go
on sale tomorrow sporting a new-
type cover, Ellis A. Wunsch, '40,
editor, swore yesterday.
The plan had been to save the
cover, a New Yorker style which ar-
tistically indicts the fickleness of
Ann Arbor weather, for heavy wea-
ther, but Wunsch held yesterday
that further waiting was impossible
in view of the fact that the maga-
zine has always kept faith with its
readers. The cover was done by
John Meyers, '42.'
Wunsch emphasized that the is-
sue would be the large "regular"

edition will be the magazine's an-
nual pulp-travesty on sex, detec-

out insofar as information is con-
cerned. Editors are working in pro-
foundest secrecy, so much so that
half the staff members don't know
what the other half is working on.
Nobody will talk.
Subtle investigation and cour-
ageous undercover work by daring
Daily reporters have revealed sev-
eral clues, however. Reams of glam-
orous photographs, the like of which
have never before been seen on this
campus, were found hidden away in
an isolated filing case. Staff mem-
bers were found yesterday removing
a full-sized baseball diamond from
the office.

When the 42 candidates for Student
Senate seats present their platforms
in tomorrow's Daily they will have
to be explicit.
Campus opinion leaves them no
alternative. A cross section of stu-
dent and faculty opinion showed the
Inquiring Reporter yesterday that
there are definite ideas on the issues
involved, and that the campus expects
to hear them discussed before the'
vote on Friday.t
THE QUESTION : What issues do
you consider most important in the
Student Senate elections?"
Martin Dworkis, '40, present mem-
ber of the Senate: "The primary
issue facing the student body is the
war ptoblem, and senate members
must be prepared to cooperate in a
mass student movement throughout
the country supporting anti-war
measures, I don't underestimate
campus problems, however, and think
they should be considered."

the Independent Men's Congress:
"There is a good deal to be done!
And I think the senate might start
with attempts to revise the almost
obsolete education system in the Uni-
versity. We might have reorganiza-
tion here towards 'more independent
thinking, along the lines of the Uni-
versity of Chicago's system. Courses
should be correlated, not an un-
related checkerboard."
Philip Buchan, '41L: "The senate
should aim at more student govern-
ment, and devise some plan for a
'more powerful student governing
body. I think we could use further
independence of University control."
Tom Downs, '40, member of the
senate in 1938: "In my opinion the
senate might devote itself to student
problems; student participation in-
determination of curricula, more re-
presentation on boards, like the
Board of Publications, housing con-
ditions, and the problem of the tui-
tion raise."
