Professors William Frankena,
Roy W. Sellars and Charles L.
Stevenson, of the philosophy de-
p rtment, are leaving today for
Iowa City, Ia. to attend a meeting
of the Western Division of the
American Philospohical Associa-
Prof. Sellars will participate in a
panel discussion on "The Present

Frankena will attend a meeting of
the Committee on Philosophy in
Higher Education, of which he is

Concluding a short public health
school course for waterworks per-
sonnel, Dr. Ridenour said that the
possibility of transmission of polio-
myelitis by water is now being in-
vestigated. He added, however,
that no proof that the disease can
be infectiously transmitted by
water has as yet been found in this
Because of the great technical
difficulties involved in isolating
and identifying virus, very little is
known as to the effect that most
of the physical, chemical and bio-
chemical treatments to which
water and sewage are now sub-
jected have on virus transmission.
Insofar as bacteria are con-
cerned, the "free residual chlorine"
method of water disinfection is
the most effective, R. J. Faust,
chief of the Division of Water Sup-
ply of the Michigan Department of
Health, told the group.
Chlorine Method Described
In this method, the water is
treated with sufficient chlorine so
that an excess of "free chlorine"
gas remains, Faust said. Improved
water taste and odor as well as
highly effective disinfection are
attained by this method, he de-
Use of Funds
To Be Debated
In Trust Is Proposed
LANSING, May 6 -(A')- 'The
question of whether ex-servicemen
of all wars will share Michigan's
$50,000,000 veterans trust fund,
which was set aside for veterans
of World War II, will be debated
in the Senate Thursday.
This shift in policy was un-
opposed Monday night as the Sen-
ate added half a dozen amend-
ments that were attached by the
chamber's veterans committee to
a bill "coordinating" the trust
fund advisory board and state of-
flee of veterans affairs into a new
state veterans commission.
County soldiers' and sailors' re-
lief commissions would be merged
with the two state offices on the
To effect all-veteran participa-
tion in the trust fund, the Senate
committee a dde d amendments
1-Divert $285,000 of the trust
fund income to the five major
veterans organizations for "wel-
fare and service" benefits for vet-
erans of all wars.
2-Permit proposed county vet-
erans committees to use trust
fund allocations for benefit of
veterans of previous wars if funds
for their care on the county
level are exhausted.

the committee will assist in de-
termining the experimental pro-
cedures to be followed by the var-
ious research workers.
Although it will attempt to in-
terfere as little as possible in the
planning and execution of the re-
search projects, the committee
must reserve the right to control
the conditions under which ex-
periments are to be performed be-

Bill Passes by
LANSING, May 6 - (/P) - One
vote, which wavered momentarily
from "yes" to "no" and back again,
today proved the shaky margin by
which the House of Representa-
tives passed and sent to the Sen-
ate, 51 to 44, a measure providing
the death penalty for first-degree
Rep. Arthur Kurtz, Detroit Re-
publican, first voted favorably but
demanded the right to explain his
Speaker Victor A. Knox told him
the rules did not give him that
right for a "yes" vote. Kurtz said,
"Then I vote 'No'."
Rep. G. Kirk Haley, Bad Axe
Republican, sprang to his feet to
point out that Kurtz could make
a statement for the Journal. Kurtz
changed his vote back to "yes,"
and the bill passed.
Doubt was cast over the final
vote a few minutes later when Rep.
James Goulette, Iron Mountain
Republican, led a finally unsuc-
cessful fight to reconsider the vote.
A record roll call on the motion
provided 42 favorable votes to 53
Preceding the vote the House
turned down a proposal to submit
the bill to a popular vote as well as
a proposal to strike out the op-
tional life imprisonment penalty.
Rep. Chester A. Ferris, Detroit
Republican, proposed striking a life
imprisonment provision. He said
there were enough safeguards in
the bill without leaving final pun-
ishment up to "one possibly fallible
Provisions of Bill
The bill, sponsored by Rep. Eu-
gent C. Betz, Monroe Republican,
provides for death by electrocution
or life imprisonment at the discre-
tion of the court after a first de-
gree murder conviction.
Persons under 17 would be ex-
empted from the death penalty,
testimony would be required even
in guilty pleas and the testimony
would be subject to Supreme Court
review before the death penalty
could be imposed.

GREEK AID DEBATE:
Communist Positions i- Italy
Franef feeHous Bill
BY J. M. ROBERTS, JR.
AP Foreign Affairs Analyst
The House of Representatives,
debating the bill for aid to Greece
and Turkey, already has before it
two important manifestations of
the Truman doctrine's effect on
Through a chain of events ob-
viously leading back to that policy,
Communists are on the defensive
in two countries-Italy and France
-which must be held for Western
democracy if all of Europe is not
to follow its Eastern areas into
the Communist field.
French Premier Ramadier's de-
cision to oust the Communist
members of his cabinet apparently
was forced by the De Gaullist ef-
fort to establish an anti-Commu-
nist cutting across all party lines.
The De Gaullists in turn were em-
boldened by the hmplied American
promise to help those who will op-
pose the spread of Communism.
Only the hope of such help if he
could avail himself of it, and what
it promised to do for De Gaulle if
he didn't, could have encouraged
Ramadier to move in the face of
the Communist electoral plurality
and their control of the French la-
Communist strength raises doubt
that a Socialist government can
last without them. However it
turns out, Ramadier at least
showed the people how France
might align herself with the Unit-
ed States without accepting the
extreme rightest program in toto,
might remove from the cabinet a
group which made French policy-
making an open book for Moscow,
and might get rid of a defense
minister whose party was actively
opposing the very -policy he was
charged with enforcing in France's
Ramadier's move was follewed
immediately by a serious weaken-
ing of the Communist position in
Italy. Threatened with a cabinet
overthrow which might cost them
their three portfolios, the Italian
Communists called off a projected
strike of government workers and
made conciliatory moves toward
Premier De Gasperi.
LANSING, May 6.-4'--Batting
down an onslaught of crippling
amendments, the House today ap-
proved 67 to 26 a bill which would
require secret majority votes of
cmployes before acts accompany-
ng strikes would be legal.
Proposed by Rep. Albert W.
Dimmers, Hillsdale Republican.
the bill would prohibit picketing
boycotts and strike agitation mtil
the ballot had been taken by the
State Labor Mediation Board.
Among the amendnmenis voted
down was one that called for elim-
ination of the majority member-
ship provision, which would hlave
been supplanted by a majority of
