The bill, which provides the full

The $8,570,000 voted the Ui-
versity by the House represents 58
per cent of the University's total
educational budget for 1947-48.
Student fees will provide 40 per
cent, or $5,750,000, and the re-
maining two per cent, or $438,000,

grants and miscellaneous sources.
University budget estimates for
next year are based on an antici-

F.B.I. Intimidation
Claimed by Defense
GREENVILLE, S. C., May 16-
(/P)-The death-agonies of Negro
Willie Earle, victim of a South
Carolina lynch-mob, were told
and re-told in Greenville County
Criminal Court today as the pros-
ecution read the last of 26 state-
ments which have implicated 31
defendants in the brutal number.
As the State neared conclusion
of its case against the accused
white men, the defense fought de-
terminedly to establish two points.
These were: (1) That the state-
ments were obtained after arrest
by agents of the Federal Bureau
of Investigation who threatened
prosecution in United States Dis-
trict Court, and (2) That local of-
ficers told suspects if a large num-
ber acknowledged participation, no
South Carolina jury would con-
vict them.
City, county, and state police
officers and the FBI have rejected
these suggestions, and declared the
incriminating statements were
freely made.
Twenty-eight of the 31 defend-
ants are taxi-drivers, and evidence'
thus far estimated at least three
are illiterate, another went to
school through the second grade,
still another had only three years

Di. cussing implicatio,, on ediu-
of' the lter~ry clege -aerted t ha,
ti probles faced in a atomic
age cannot be solved merely by
clarity of thinking and increased
knowledge, but by "men and wom
en of good will" who are not serv-
ing narrow interests and cheap pa-t
triotism; but will ma de pubhe weli
fare their goal.
Social Relationsc
The necessity of "getting aloi
with your neighbor" was stressed
by Prof. Frank. L. 1Utntley of the
English department in a discus-
sion of social relations. "We are
given only a short time to begin to
live by tcal principles (f
getting along withi fellowen
which have been laid down for us
by great thinkers of the past," tic
Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the po-
litical science department, speak-
ing on government, noted marked
tendencies toward consOlidation
and concentration. An atomic age,
he said, will necessitate more gov-
errnment by admlin istrdatve ai d
less by legislative and judiciary
branches of government.
Foreign Relations
Describing the picture in the
foreign relations field as "pessi-
mistic," Prof. Lawrence Preuss of
the political science department,
said there is little hope for any im-
mediate settlement of the prob-
lem of international control of
the atom bomb, because Russia in-
sists on a plan which provides no
means of enforcement.
Prof. Gardner Ackley of the eco-
nomics department declared that
the American economy must be
remoulded to remove economic
causes of international conflict,
and to promote free trade, full em-
ployment, and an easy flow of fo
eign investment.
Civil Liberties
Speaking on implications on
civil liberties, Prof. Wesley H.
Maurer of the journalism depart-
ment said that a monopoly of
atomic energy has influenced na-
tional thinking by weakening faith
in other peoples, by changing plans
for peace to plans for war, by giv-
ing the United States a power
never before felt, and by strength-
ening American insistence on the
sovereign right of nations to de-
clare war.
Dr. Franklin H. Littell, director
of the Student Religious Associa-
tion, asserted that the "only guar-
antee worth making" is immedi-
ate and authoritative interna-
tional action to control the atomic
bomb. "The sooner we can stir
this up," he said, "the better our
fighting chances are."
Final Session Today
The third and final sessions of
the parley will be held at 3 p.m.
and 8 p.m. today in the Union.
Panels on religion, economics, and
a combined panel on civil liber-
ties and social relations, led by
faculty members and students, will
compose the third session. Stu-
dents may attend all panels.
At the final session, panels will
make reports, and an opportunity
for further general discussion and
questions will be offered.

Regular Navy
Bdgtt et Slash
Is Proposed
Rlesearchi Funds
Left hta by Bill
By The Associated Press
House Appropriations Committee
charted an economy course for the
Navy today which would slash its
total funds by I1 per cent but give
it every penny it asked for the
research and for its reserve force.
The budget cut would entail a
possible reduction of 40,000 in the
strength of the Navy and the Ma-
rine Corps, the dismissal of hun-
dreds of civilian employes and a
hutdown of some shore establish-
ments, among other economies.
Goes to House
The committee sent to the House
floor for debatenext week a $3-
135,48 1,100 appropriation bill to
finance the Navy for the fiscal
year starting July 1. The total is
$377,519,200 less than President
Pruman requested in new funds
ind $1,197,300,841 below what the
Navy had this year.
However, the Navy actually will
have $3,469,761,100 at its disposal
during the new year if the House
follows the committee's recom-
nendation to approve $170,000,000
a contract authority and the
transfer of $164,280,000 from other
navy funds.
Continue Conversion
Sone of the fund transfers will
>ermit the Navy to go ahead with
i three-year program for, con-
verting destroyers, submarines and
>ther ships for new types of un-
dersea warfare and for Arctic
aperation. It includes plans for
what Vice Adm. R. B. Carney
:alled a "killer ship" costing $27,-
140,000 and capable of coping with
the fastest, most modern subma-
cine under any conditions.
The House committee called for
z seven per cent reduction in the
$1,344,171,000 requested for Navy
,ay and subsistence and a slightly
treater cut in the $209,000,000 for
marine pay and subsistence.
If the seven per cent cut were
ipplied uniformly, it would require
i reduction of 30,000 naval and
3,300 marine enlisted men and
3,200 naval and 525 marine of-
All Out' for Research
The committee went "all out"
or research and aviation, approv-
ng the full $34,400,000 requested
or the former and granting $170,-
)00,000,000 in contract authority
md $90,000,000 in cash for new
>Ianes and equipment.
In the matter of research, it
;aid, it chose to "err on the side
)f liberality" to give the Navy
very chance to develop new and
nore efficient ships and weapons.

Police were still searching
yesterday for the cause of
the explosion which blasted the
rear of the Mary Lee Candy
Shoppe, 332 S. State St., at 11:45
,Thursday night.
Officers investigating the ex-
plosion said the blast seemed to
center around a spot where several
metal whipped-cream dispensers
W( re kept. Since no signs of fire
coilt be discovered, police sus-
pected the explosion might have
been set off chemically. But frag-
ments of one of the dispensers,
analyzed in the state police labor-
atory at Lansing, disclosed no
clews, and local police are continu-
ing their investigation.
The blast smashed windows in
the garage of Mrs. Edith Nickels,
337 Maynard St., and broke panes
in the rear of Slater's bookstore,
the Bet sy Ross restaurant, the
