Attlee Will Meet
Leaders Will Discuss Atomic Energy
In Capitol; NoIBig Three Meeting Seen
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Nov. 9-Prime Minister Attlee flew tonight toward Wash-
ington for atomic energy talks which he hoped would help achieve a world
"safe for the common man" and banish fear of the atomic bomb.
Speaking at a Lord Mayor's luncheon, Attlee said he would discuss world
affairs with President Truman and
I's To 'morrow
Leinsdorf To Perform
Highlighting the second Choral
Union concert of the season, the
Cleveland Orchestra, conducted by
Erich Leinsdorf, will open its pro-
gram at 7 p.m. tomorrow in Hill Audi-
torium with the Bruckner "Sym-
phony No. 7 in E major."
The symphony, composed in 1881-
83, during Bruckner's Viennese pe-
riod, is the product of a symphonic
master. Freedom and ease in the
symphonic manner, a limpid flow of
melody and sure control in the inter-
weaving of themes is characteristic
of the Australian's style.
Undecided on Career
Until 1856 when he was appointed
organist at the cathedral in Linz,
Bruckner had been unable to decide
between music and teaching as a ca-
reer. He studied periodically under
Simon Sechter, well-known master
of theory, and under Otto Kitzler,
modern composition instructor, in
Vienna. It was at this time that
Bruckner wrote his first big indepen-
Later a choirmaster and teacher of
theory and organ at the Vienna con-
servatory, Bruckner devoted his time
to creative work, composing some
chamber music and a string quintet.
His style grew out of the baroc con-
cert masses and motets of the 17th
and 18th centuries and is linked to
the works of Haydn and Schubert. It
is religious music but free and daring
in individual outlook as well as mod-
ern in idiom.
Orchestra's Eighth Visit
Ravel's "Bolero" and suite from
the ballet, "Appalachian Spring," by
Copland complete the orchestra's
program. This is the eighth appear-
ance of the Ciaveland orchestra on
the Choral Union series. The or-
ganization appeared here last year
under the guest conductorship of
George Szell. Erich Leinsdorg, con-
ductor, has returned to the podium
after a year's absence in service.
Concert-goers are reminded that
the program will begin at 7 p.m., one
and a half hour earlier than usual.
League Will Canvass
All 'U' Residence Halls
A systematic canvas of all Univer-
sity residence halls for contributions
to the Ann Arbor Community Chest
Drive will open Monday noon, Prof.
Harold 'M. Dorr, chairman of the

"This will be the last opportunity

A tabulation of returns early yes-
terday revealed that Ann Arbor is
$26,000 short of its $139,000 goal.

totaled $13,209, leaving approximately
$12,000 to be solicited.

Deny Big Three Meeting
London newspapers speculated that
Premier Stalin might join Truman
and Attlee for Big Three conferences
in Washington, but a spokesman at
No. 10 Downing Street said "as far as
we know here, there is nothing in that
report at all." Moscow dispatches
showed that Russia was keenly inter-
ested in the British-American-Cana-
dian atomic energy talks.
In Washington, congressional lead-
ers arranged for Attlee to address a
joint session of the Houe and Senate
at 12:30 p. in., EST, Tuesday.
"I want a world which will be safe
ifor the common man," Attlee declared
at the luncheon.
"London learned its lesson. Only
by the world learning the same lesson
can civilization endure. The foun-
dation of world order must be laid in

On Union Rights
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9-The labor-
management conference was said to-
day to have cleared the collective
bargaining shoals on which the post-
war parley of 1919 foundered.
Dr. George W. Taylor, conference
secretary, gave this word to reporters
as employer and worker deleo.tes,
behind closed committee doors, sought
agreement on basic labor relationFis-
Dr. Taylor, former war Labor Board
chairman, said that in all of the six
conference committees it was "fair
to say" that there was full acceptance
of the collective bargaining principle.
Twenty six years ago the confer-
ence that followed World War I
broke up in angry disagreement be-
cause it could not adopt a resolution
stating that workers are entitled to
be represented by unions or persons
of their own choosing.
A committee on existing collective
agreements studying wildcat and
"quickie" strikes, Taylor said, appear-
ed to be in agreement that if there
is to be a no-strike, no lockout clause
in contracts, there must be some
quick terminal point in grievance pro-
cedure.. A provision for deciding
grievances based on contract inter-
pretations is needed, Taylor said.
The committee on representation
and jurisdictional questions was en-
gaged in analyzing national labor re-
lations board procedures and explor-
ing the possible improvement of ma-
chinery for the settlement of juris-
dictional disputes by the unions

Bill Sponsors Contend
No Loss of Revenue
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9-Federal
tax cuts for everybody in 1946 are now
an assured fact.
The White House announced today
that President Truman has signed
the bill lopping an estimated $5,920,-
000,000 off the total of taxes that will
be paid by individuals and corpora-
tions next year.
It will be the first general tax re-
duction since 1929, when President
Hoover signed a "Christmas present"
slash. Congressional sponsors of the
cuts argued that they would stimulate
business to such an extent that the
treasury actually may not suffer a
loss in revenue. The total cut is
nearly $1,000,000,000 larger than that
recommended by the government.
The legislation was signed by Mr.
Truman Thursday night. Here is
what it will do:
For. individuals-ends income tax
paying entirely for 12,000,000 persons
who now pay only the three per cent
normal tax levied on all net income
above $500; assures 10 per cent or
more reductions for persons making
up to $50,000 a year, with smaller
percentage cuts for those making
more than $50,000; repeals the $5 a
year use tax on automobiles, trucks
and boats; holds at one per cent for
1946 the Social Security Tax assessed
against emploees' pay checks and
Repeals Excess Profits

time excess profits tax of 85.5 per

Oct. 27 may have been Navy Day for the nation at large, but Michigan's
football team has a Navy Day date all its own today when it takes the field
against the representatives of the United States Naval Academy at 2 p. m.
in Baltimore Stadium.
Even though the game will have no bearing on the outcome of the
Western Conference title race, its importance to Coach Fritz Crisler and
his Wolverine gridders cannot be minimized. Similarly, the Navymen also

"Fellows in the other battalion

what happened to them, I wanted to

plant on a round-the-clock shift.
With more than 500 employes re-
maining away from work, the dispute
over wages, contract, working condi-
tions and hours did not move towards
settlement. Neither company officials
nor union officers had taken any
steps towards negotiation.
While company officials refused to
make any statements, Joseph Clishan,
union chairman, said, "We can keep
this up indefinitely. The next move
is up to the company. We can keep
this up for three, four or five months
if necessary. Meanwhile, our strike is
complete. Nobody is going to work in
the plant. Production is at a stand-
