GOP Bloeks
Attempts To
Early Decision
On Slash Seen
WASHINGTON, May 26-Hard-
pressed Republicans cleared the
way today for possible Senate ap-
proval this week of a bill to slash
individual income taxes July 1 by
beating down, 48 to 44, a Democra-
tic motion to delay action until
June 10.
Holding their own party mem-
bers well in line, GOP leaders mus-
tered a four-vote margin to defeat
a proposal by Senator George
(Dem., Ga.) to postpone considera-
tion until Congress knows more
about the extent of government
spending for the fiscal year be-
ginning July 1.
This presaged Senate action,
possibly Wednesday or Thursday,
on a measure lopping about $4,-
000,000,000 off the yearly liabili-
ties of the nation's taxpayers.
Cross Party Lines
Senators Morse (Rep., Ore.) and
Wilson (Rep., Iowa) were the only
members to cross party lines in the
close vote. Morse and Wilson voted
with the Democrats to delay ac-
Some of the Democrats who
voted for the George motion, in-
cluding George himself, have in-
dicated they will support the bill
on its final passage test.
However, there are pending
Democratic amendments, includ-
ing a proposal by Lucas to delay
the tax cut until next Jan. 1,
which are expected to afford new
tests of party strength.
Truman Opposes Move
President Truman has opposed
an immediate tax cut, although he
has said he would favor a reduc-
tion "at a proper time." Demo-
crats hinted this could be Jan. 1.
The House voted previously to
carry the proposed reduction back
to last Jan. 1. It approved cuts of
from 30 per cent for those with
taxable income of $1,000 or less
and 20 per cent for most others.
The Senate Finance Committee
revised this to bring the reduc-
tion down to 10.5 per cent on the
highest incomes and limited the
cut to 15 per cent 'for those with
'$79,728 to $302,396 taxable income.
Long Range
Strike Loonis
At Ford Co.
DETROIT, May 26 -(A),- The
Ford Motor Co., locked in a dis-
pute with 3,800 unionized foremen,
today faced a new, long-range
strike threat from 130,000 CIO
United Auto Workers.
The UAW-CIO asked its Ford
locals in nearly 40 plants for per-
mission to take a strike vote. A
spokesman said approval of the
request is considered virtually au-
'However, the union pointed out
that any walkout would be at least
30 days away under terms of the
Smith-Connally Act which re-
quires a waiting period after no-
tice of intent to strike.
Federal and State authorities
were notified today by Vice-Pres-
ident Richard T. Leonard of the

UAW-CIO of the existence of dis-
pute between the union and the
Leonard, who also' heads the
union's Ford departments, said ne-
gotiations with the company were
"stymied" by counter proposals
which the negotiating committee
"could not accept and still retain
any measure of bargaining power.'

Emil Rabb, Violinist
Featured As Soloist
The 85-member University Sym-
phony Orchestra will present a
concert at 8:30 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium under the direction of
Prof. Wayne Dunlap.
Emil Raab, concertmaster, will
be soloist in Concerto in D Minor,
Op. 47, for Violin by Sibelius. De-
spite Sibelius' abundant output as
a composer, this concerto is the
only one that he has written. Its
premiere performance was given in
Mozart's Serenade
The orchestra will also play
Mozart's Serenade for Woodwinds
and Horns, B-flat Major. Although
this Serenade was written in seven
movements, only four will be
played. This work, as well as Mo-
zart's other Serenades, was written
to be played out of doors for a
small group rather than in a large
concert hall. Alfred Einstein said
that it was "written for summer
nights under the light of torches
and lamps, to be heard close by
and from afar.... "
Beethoven's Seventh
Besides the Mozart and Sibelius
numbers, the orchestra will play
Beethoven's Symphony No. 7 in A
Major, Op. 92. Beethoven himself
conducted at the premiere of this
symphony in Vienna in 1813, de-
spite his increasing deafness.
Denies Charge
)f Profanity
Ballentine Counters
Workers' Petition
Charles N. Ballentine, medical
student and part-time University
Hospital employe, declared yester-
day that at no time did he use any
profanity in personal reference to
either Mrs. Leatrice Murray or an-
other Negro elevator operator at
the hospital.
Fifty-five Negro and white work-
ers at the hospital were reported
to have petitioned Dr. A. C. Kerli-
kowske, director, last Thursday, to
demand the resignation or apology
of Ballentine because of alleged
profane and humiliating language
directed at Mrs. Murray.
Says Daily Report Incorrect
Ballentine said he declared, "In
Georgia we know how to handle
your kind," because Mrs. Murray's
elevator, for which he had waited
15 minutes, was idle. The Daily's
report last Friday, that the ele-
vator was in use at the time, he
claimed was incorrect. Profanity
was used, Ballentine said, but in
personal reference to neither Mrs.
Murray nor the Negro people. Mrs.
Murray and another operator, he
said, made profane and insulting
personal reference to him.
Dispute About Services
Ballentine remarked that P. J
Olin, personnel director, had in-

Equipment for Ground School
Workshop Fills Classroom
An Ann Arbor High School teacher was rather perplexed at the
paraphernalia collected in his classroom yesterday.
Model planes, a cutaway of an airplane engine, charts, maps and
a welter of odds and ends cluttered the room, which he had thought
unused because it was in the process of being painted.
It was equipment to be used in a four-day Ground School Work-
shop conducted by Prof. Harry R. Wilson, Extension Service ,lecturer,
which began here yesterday.
The program is the sixth in the series of twelve non-credit courses
being held by Prof. Wilson in Michigan cities unaer the sponsorship

For Construction
An amount of $6,400,000 to con-
tinue building construction at the
University and Michigan Mtate
College was included in a revised
estimate of the state's expected
deficit appropriation issued yes-
terday by Senator Otto W. Bishop,
chairman of the Senate Finance
Under provisions of the new es-
timate the University will get $3,-
200,000 to continue its expansion
program. With the $4,800,000 ap-
propriated by the Legislature last
year, this would bring the total
to $8,000,000. The University had
requested $13,210,000 to complete
buildings now under construction
and to erect other buildings last
The revised estimate fixed the
state's expected deficit at $31,-

patch reported.
Bishop decreased the expected
amount of state surplus available
this year to cut next year's deficit
from $17,000,000 to $12,000,000,
declaring an anticipated income
from the liquor control commis-
sion must be reduced from $20,-
000,000 to $15,000,000 because of
heavy purchases to build up liquor
Bishop estimated revenues for
next year at $175,408.33, compared
with anticipated expenses of $206,-
943,578, including $18,000,000 to
finance the veterans' bonus.

Council Asks
U.S. Grain for
Hungry Areas
The head of the International
Emergency Food Council appealed
today for more American grain to
avert disorders in hungry areas
while the council itself voted to
call an international conference
for better food management.
A need for more grain from the
United States was reported by D.
A. Fitzgerald, secretary-general of
the organization. He said that
stocks in many needy areas are
lower now than last year when this
country took emergency steps to
speed supplies.
Secretary of Agriculture Ander-
son proposed the international
conference in a letter to the coun-
cil. It promptly voted to hold it
some time this year and named a
subcommittee to suggest a site by
Anderson, saying that shortages
in many needy areas may be more
serious a year from now than at
present, said importing nations
should be shown how to collect a
larger proportion of their own pro-
duction from their farmers and
make it last longer.
Science. It's
D. Roger McNaughton, en-
gineering student who invented
the electronic baby sitter, an-
nounced yesterday a new gad-
get designed "to cut off com-
mercials on radio programs."
McNaughton said the gad-
get, which will sell for $2, con-
sists of a resister, a bi-metallic
strip and a few feet of wire.
"You merely set the resister,
which in this case is a timer,
and push a button when you
hear the commercial coming

'on," he said. "The radio goes
dead and starts up again after
the commercial is over."

WASHINGTON, May 26-President Truman asked Congress to-
day to hasten a program of American defense from Cape Horn to the
Arctic in view of "world developments."
He appealed for broad authority to supply arms to all Latin
American nations and Canada, train the men of their armies and
navies, and bring their equipment into standardization with that of
the United States.
The program is identical with a bill approved last session by the
House Foreign Affairs Committee at the President's recommendation
