Clark Blocks.
Plan To Limit
Senate debate
On Lease Bill
Foreign Relations Group
Proposes Measure Fori
Vote On Act This Week
Sen. Glass Suggests'
Cloture On Bill1
WASHINGTON, March 3-()-
Administration forces, working des-
perately to obtain a vote on the lease-
lend bill by this week-end, failed to-
day in an initial effort to limit debate
on the measure.
Senatdr Clark (Dem-Mo) blocked a
proposal by Chairman George (Dem-
Ga) of the Senate Foreign Relations!
Committee that the Senate agree
unanimously to limit future speeches
on the bill itself to one hour each,
and speeches on amendments to a
half hour.
Clark and Senator Wheeler (Dem-
Mont) said they had not filibustered
against the bill, but added it was a!
measure of such great important
there should be no limitation on de-
"I don't wonder that some of the
proponents of this bill would like to
see it jammed through at the earliest
possible moment," Wheeler declared,
"because they know as I do that when
people 'understand it there will be a
tremendous uprising overethe coun-
try against it. I expect to fight this
legislation in any way, shape or form
I can."
Wheeler said many persons had
written him urging that a filibuster
be conducted. He said he believed they
were "justified" in making such a'
request because, "no matter how you
sugar-coat this measure it is a dan-
gerous thing to put on the statute
Earlier Senator Glass (Dem-Va),
had suggested the Senate impose
cloture-a procedure under which no
Senator can speak more than once
or more than one hour. A two-thirds
majority is necessary to impose clo-
Wheeler declared he had read sug-
gestions for cloture and added that
they came "from Senatorstwho have
spent very little time on the floor."
"If they would stay here and listen
to the debate," he added, "there
wouldn't be so much' shouting about

With the city council's approval j
last night of a $2500 expenditure to
make improvements at the city air-
port the University's CAK. training
program appeared to be saved for this
University officials had received
notice from regional headquarters in
Chicago that unless runways were
widened and a new hangar erected
at the city airport, the flight train-
ing program would have to be dropped
for this semester.
After some discussion the council
agreed to appropriate the amount nec-
essary to widen the runways if the
"Ann Arbor ir service, which leases
the airport, would build the new
hangar. It was also decided that an
audit and further study into the fi-
nancial condition of the Ann Arbor
Air Service should be made in order
to arrive at a suitable plan for re-
payment of the $2500.
The runways will be widened from
their present size of 100 feet to 3001
feet. Prof. Emerson B. Conloa, co-
ordinator of Civilian Pilot Training
pointed out to the council that ordi-
narily training pilots was not a func-
tion of the University but because
of the national defense situation it
had undertaken the work. Conse-
quently, it was necessary that proper
facilities be available.
The council accepted the resigna-
tion of Ald. Floyd D. Elsifor, who has
been 'called into active service with
the army. The second ward alderman
is a second lieutenant in the infantry
It was decided that a special pri-
mary election be held in the second
ward on April 18 to fill the vacancyI

Dean Russel W. Bunting of the
School of Dentistry will deliver the
second in a series of vocational gui-
dance lectures at 4 p.m. today in
Room 319 of the Michigan Union.
The vocational lecture series is
sponsored" by the Michigan Union as
part of its program to help Michigan
students become acquainted with all
that the University offers.
Dean Bunting's address will be con-
cerned with explaining the oppor-
tunities and the role of dentistry as
a profession in modern life. There is
a great need for dentists, which the
School is not able to supply at the
present time, Dean Bunting com-
mented in discussing the subject of
today's lecture.
Most professions are fairly well
crowded at the present, but there re-
mains a big field to be developed
in the profession of dentistry as part
of the nation's general health pro-
grams, he said.
In this afternoon's address Dean
Bunting will elaborate and discuss
the various phases of dental educa-
tion and practice and answer ques-

MOSCOW, March 3-()-The
Soviet Foreign Commissariat in-
formed Bulgaria today that Russia
"cannot share the opinion of the
Bulgarian government as to the cor-
rectness of the latter's position" in
granting admission to German troops.
The communication to Bulgaria,
handed to its minister at Moscow
expressed disapproval on the grounds
Bulgaria's action "does not lead to
consolidation of peace but to eten-
ion of thesphere of war and to Bul-
garia being involved in it."
The note added:
"In view of this the Soviet govern-
ment, true to its policy of peace, can-
not render any support to the Bul-
garian government in the application
of its present policy.
"The Soviet government is com-
pelled to make the present statement
especially in view of the fact the Bul-
garian press freely circulates rumors
fundamentally misrepresenting the,
real position of the USSR.
The text of the Russian note and
an outline of events leading up to it
were issued by Tass, official Russian
news agency.
The note was delivered into the
Bulgarian envoy by Andrei Y. Vish-

The proposal agreed substantially,

of the Mekong River at Luangpra-
bang and Pakse, and a Thai frontier
extending to Lake Tonle Sap.

tach great importance to an inter-
