Pay-as-You-Go
Plan Ready
Tax Proposal May Be
Presented This Week
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23--(P)-Be-
lief that the Treasury Department ex-
perts would have their recommenda-
tions on the pay-as-you-go income
tax collection proposal ready for'
presentation to the House Ways and;
Means Committee "early next week"
was expressed today by Chairman
Doughton (D-Nc).
In a letter to Rep. Treadway (R-
Mass), the committee's ranking
minority member, Doughton said that
he "individually" believed that con-'
sideration of the pay-as-you-go plan
would have first consideration in the
order of the committee's business.
His letter was in reply to one from
the committee's Republican members
demanding immediate public hearings
on prospective tax legislation includ-
ing the "question of adopting some
form of pay-as-you-go collection of
the personal income tax."

SOCIAL WORKERS' WAR TOO:.
Three New Vocational Courses
Announced for Juniors, Seniors

Three npw vocational courses in1
social work to be opened to 'junior'
and senior students are announced
in the supplementary bulletin of the
College of Literature, Science and the
Arts.
In keeping with a wartime curric-
ulum, these courses are designed to
give undergraduate students a mini-
mum training on a pre-professional
level for certain positions connected
with the war effort-Red Cross, ISO,J
and community welfare agencies.
Courses Listed.
The courses 'are the following: In-
troduction to Social Case Work, to be
given by Prof. Eleanor Cranefield,"
member of the faculty of the Gradu-
ate Curriculum in Social Work; In-
troduction to Psychiati'ic Case Work
by Dr. Richard Jenkins, psychiatrist
of- the Michigan Child Guidance In-
stitute; and the Fields of Social
Work, to be given by Prof. Arthur E.

Wood, of -the Department of Soci-
ology.
Need Has Grown
In commenting on the new courses,
Prof. Richard C. Fuller, executive
secretary of- the sociology depart-
ment, said, "The demand for trained
social workers has growni tremen-
dously as a result of the war. The
Red Cross and USO are absorbing
scores of social workers for service
in this country and overseas. Like-
wise, because of the war many special
social problems among civilians have
arisen.
"According to the War Manpower
Commission the present denand re-
quires about 10,000 social workers,
whereas the total output of acered-.
ited schools of social work-is less than
1,500. From every quarter comes
word that the supply of trained soc-
ial workers is totally inadequate to
meet the needs -of the war eei-
gency."
Gas ..Ratiol-nng.'
Cuts Police
Car Cruising..
Tight government gasoline ration-
ing resulted yesterday in the with-
drawal of two police department
squad cars from- patrol duty around
Ann Arbor.
A new OPA ruling has halved the
department's fuel allotment for squad
cars dispatchers said. Police must
make a present 400 gallon supply of
gasoline last until March.
The decrease in crusing officers will
mean more patrolmen covering walk-
ing beats, the department indicated,
since the two cars are expected to
remain off duty indefinitely.
Police credit their present cruising
patrols with station to car radio- for -
the absence last year of a major
crme, in Ann Arbor.
BARRAGE BALLOON EXPLODES
VALLEJO, Calif., Jan. 22.-(R')-An
Army barrage balloon exploded at its
moorings today, shattered a barracks
building, which burst into flames, de-
-molished at least ten war workers'
houses nearby, killed one man and
injured 17 other persons.

Group Claims
Loophole in
SDD System
Politics, Loss of
'Original Principles'
Sharply Criticized
DETROIT, Jan. 24 - (P) - The
Michigan Liquor Study Commission
headed by Federal Judge Frank A.
Picard, reporting on its study of liquor
control, recommended to Governor
Kelly tonight that the state impose
stricter enforcement and more severe
penalties for violators of the law and
work towards a. "return to the orig-
inal principles upon which the pres-
ent-liquor law was based."
'The weakness of the Michigan
liquor control system lies in the spe-
cially designated distributors-those
outlets other than state stores where
liquor may, be purchased by the bot-
tle," the commission reported.
o 'Polities 'Planned'
Outliing the start of the SDD's
and reporting that the first designa-
tions- "were 'not political as they have
since become," the members of the
commission found that "today the
SDD's are- competitors of our state
stores with' the cards stacked in their
favor" and that some are "out and
out 'liquor: stores." They added the
cornmer't:.
"All this in the state that promised
the public in 1933 that we were going
to take the 'profit' out of distilled
spirits to individuals when we put
in a state monopoly."
Asks SD1)Reduction
The commission recommended that
the Liquor Control -Commission im-
mediately freeze the present number
of SDDs and that the control act be
amended to provide for reduction of
the number accordingto population
-one for each 15,000 or major frac-
tion thereof ip communities having at
least one state store; one for each
5,000 in communities having no state
store, and one SDD in a community
having population -of 2500 or less.
Asta spur to stricter enforcement,
the Study Commission members urged
that the Control Commission be au-
thorized to retain a part, not more
than 20 per cent, of license fee money
due any municipality which fails to'
provide adequate liquor enforcement
in its own jurisdiction.
'No Punches Pulled'
The study group, appointed by for-
mer Governor Murray D. Van Wag-
oner in February, 1942, is headed by
Judge Picard as chairman, and in-
cludes as members Harry Rickel and
Myron A. Keys. In a letter to the gov-
ernor, made a part of its report, the
commission stated, "We cannot ex-
pect that all our proposals will meet
with general acclaim but we have
pulled no punches."
Its recom'nendations were formu-
lated, the group reported, after hear-
ing suggestions by members of the
clergy,, law enforcement officers,
licensees, employer and employee
groups,- representatives:of women's
clubs, brewers,- distillers, wine whole-
salers SDD's and members of the
press.

BUTTER, CHEESE NEXI
More Foo
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 23 - Butter
and cheese probably will be rationed
next spring, it was indicated today at
the Office of Price Administration.
An informed official disclosed that
cheese, although a dairy product, may
be rationed along with meat because
of its adaptability as a meat substi-
tute.
Butter for civilians is so scarce now
that it cannot be rationed at present
explained the official, who would not
be quoted by name. But when produc-
tion increases in the spring to the
point where retailers can honor ration
coupons for it, therationing can b
undertaken. Meanwhile housewives
will have to get it as best they can
While emphasizing that alteration
of plans is the- rule rather than the
exception in getting. big ration pro-
grams under way, officials offered
these as their best present guesses on
other rationing problenisfor the early
part of this year:
1. OPA now is shooting at March
1 for the start of point rationing
for canned, dried and friozen fruits
and vegetables and canned baby
foods. Earlier hopes of getting it
under way by the third week in
February have been abandoned be-

Rationing
cause of mechanical problems in
getting forms -printed and dis-
tributed. -
t. 2. Meat (and cheese) rationing
should be brought along perhaps a
t month'or so later, OPA now thinks,
to give time to see how the point
system works for canned goods.
Innumerable problems in meat ra-
tioning remain to be ironed out,
3. Rationing of canned milk,
- jams, jellies, fruit butter and rel-
t ishes-if OPA uses it authority to
ration. these items-probably will
e not start until some time after meat
rationing
eUnder study is a plan to ration but-
's ter on a point basis, along with other
fats and oils, including oleomargarine,
n salad oil, peanut oil and shortening.
Under this system, one ration point,
- for example, would be good for a
d small quantity of butter, a larger
n quantity of margerine or still larger
y quantities of other edible fats 'or oils.
By making the other prodiucts
"cheaper" tih butter in term of ra-
tion points which the householder
has to spend, it is believed that in-
creased use of the'more plentiful fats
could be encouraged.
Butter supplies now are at a record
low.

ART

One of the most provocative ex-
hibitions of paintings which Ann
Arbor has seen is now on view in
the main floor show cases of the
Architecture Building. Comprising
the work of Mr. T. S. Haile, re-.
cently -,of England, and now cer-
amics instructor in the College of
Architecture and Design, - the
paintings bring fresh stimulae from
sources which, until recently, have
been too little explored and too lit'
tle taken seriously on 'these shores.
Most important and stimulating
are those works which can be tag-
ged with the anibiguous label of
Surrealism. The fine points of dis-
sention which have assailed the
Surrealist group recently are evi-
dence perhaps of the fact' "that
imagination, fantasy, dream-real-
ity, psychological self-concern-
hardly exclusive twentieth century
property-are merely the earmarks.
of significant expression in all
times.
gowever Mr. Haile wishes to be
labeled-if at all-the fertflity of
his creative imagination cannot be.
restricted by a dogma. An under-
standing of humanity, in his work
expressed through a fantastic real-
ism, links him with the best tradi-
tions of all art. In such a work as
his "Then lie there, precious white
psychiatrist," one can see a stream
of observation translated into
painting, beginning not even with
a medieval- master like Hieronymus-
Bosch, but originating in the mere
curiosity of man towaid his fellow
creatures. Sometimes this curiosity
is expressed morbidly, as in a gar-
goyle from a medieval cathedral;
sometimes it is burdened with for-
mality; -as in an Egyptian bas-re-
lief; sometimes it is as familiar as
in a Psalm, yet it is ever imbued
with the imagination that clarifies,
as it simplifies through distortion,
our understanding of the earth.
These things are important in the
work of Mr. Haile.
If his palette is restricted by a
greyness that strikes one as being
very English, if his technique often
is closer to the slip decoration of
pottery than to paint, it must be
rememberet that his chief expres-
sion is in ceramics. These are
the limitations of his personal
