'States Rights'
Stressed by
Gov. Martin
Independence Urged
In Financial Affairs
By The Associated Press
chief executives of the nation's states
were urged today by Gov. Edward
Martin of Pennsylvania to aid in
decentralization of government byl
"taking care of their own financial
Martin, chairman of the Governors"
Conference which opened here this
morning with a message from Presi-
dent Truman, declared:
"The states can go a long way in
bettering the financial condition of
the federal government if they will
assert their leadership by taking care
of their own financial burdens. At
the same time they can aid in the
decentralization of the government."
President Truman, who was un-1
able to address the conference be-
cause the rail and coal situation kept
him in Washington, telegraphed Gov.
Robert S. Kerr of Oklahoma:
"My message to you is an appeal to
all to work together to maintain the
authority of government, national,
state and local."
In his speech Gov. Martin outlined
a 4-point program to be considered
by the conference.
"1) Balanced budgets and less ex-
penditures for each level of govern-
"2) A tax plan where each level of
government may have certain taxes
earmarked for its use and have cer-
tain functions to perform.
"3) Elimination of duplication and
over-lapping in government.
"4) Every level of government, our
school system, our labor, agricultural
and business organizations, and our
churches should assume certain re-
sponsibilities. They should all teach
willing obedience of laws and the de-
crees of our courts, urge all to take a
greater interest in government, up-
hold the greatness and glory of
America and insist that respect for
the rights of others is a duty imposed
upon us as good citizens."
School Offers
New Courses
(Continued from Page 1)
other topics discussed are fire retard-
ant paint for ferrous surfaces, meth-
ods of testing paints, thixatropy and
cost of production.
The laboratory course is designed
to acquaint students with techniques
used by manufacturers of organic
or semi-organic coatings. This in-
cludes the physical testing, manu-
facture and analysis of paints, varn-
ishes and lacquers. It is also concern-
ed with color matching, pigments,
and oils and synthetic resins. Field
trips are included to give practical
experience to the students.
"We study finishes for houses,
structural steel, automobiles and all
kinds of structural finishing in these
courses," Prof. Carrick said. "We are
finding that a combination of red
lead, zinc chromide and inerts makes
a fine pigmentation for anti-corrosive
paint to be used on steel. By varying
the vehicle it may be used for total
submersion exposure on steel ships
or as paint on such steel structures as
railroad bridges."
If only one-fourth of the persons
who have written to inquire about
these new courses take them next fall

we will have classes of 30, Prof. Car-
rick predicted. Only those applying#
early will get in, he added. Six stu-
dents are now taking the course.
Three are Chinese students who plan
to enter the paint industry in China.
