sensational floor game, Purdue
broke its 3-game losing streak
with a 56-45 victory over Michigan
here tonight.
Record Light
Primary Vote
Brisk Fight Marks
City Alderman Race
Late, unofficial returns in yes-
terday's county-wide primary elec-
tion indicate one of the lightest
votes on record.
The only heavy voting recorded
was in the city where a brisk race
developed in the contest for four
positions in Ann Arbor Common
Council. Eight Republicans vied
for the four contested seats.
Annexation Approved
At 2 a.m. this morning, complete
returns showed voters favoring the
Eastover Hills annexation ques-
tion. Balloting gave the measure
a two to one vote of approval. East-
over Hills is located in Pittsfield
Township, just east of Ann Arbor.
In the only other county-wide
issue, voters from 28 out of 43 pre-
cincts gave incumbent Circuit
Judge James Breakey a lead of
2,596 to 1,333 over Municipal Judge
Jay H. Payne in the race for Cir-
cuit Judge. Returns from out-
county precincts which had not
reported at press time will notbe
sufficient to swing the election,
County officials reported.
Ypsilanti Returns

city in the Judgeship contest
showed only a six vote difference
between the two jurists. Later e-

Breakey a wide lead, however,

In Ann Arbor, complete, unoffi-

nomination and incumbent Ber-
riard Harkins the nomination in
the 7th ward.
Rev. David A. Blake Jr., a grad-
uate student at the University, was
defeated in the three-way race for
Ypsilanti Township supervisor.
Blake, a candidate on the Repub-
lican ticket, resides at Willow Vil-
lage. He is working toward a de-
gree in religious education.
Cook Lecture
Subj ects Told
Titles for the William W. Cook
Lecture series, "Alternative to
Serfdom," which will be given
during the week of March 10, were
announced yesterday by E. Blythe
Stason, dean of the Law School.
John Maurice Clark, professor
of economics at Columbia Univer-
sity, who is to be the speaker this
year, has titled the individiual
lectures "Wanted: A Balanced
Economic Society," "The Human
Material-a Biological Approach,"
"Competition and Security,"
"Revolution in Economics-After
Keynes, What?" and "Toward a
Society of Responsible Individuals
in Responsible Groups."

Mack Suprunowicz, the only
Wolverine able to score consistent-
ly, dented the Purdue defense for
17 points. The Michigan attack
was particularly ineffective in the
second half.
Purdue Leads at Half
Purdue led 27-25 at the half,
but Hoffman scored eight straight
points in 3 minutes to make the
margin 35-25.
Michigan theatened again, then
came up to 45-40, but Ehlers
turned on the steam and Purdue
pulled away.
The difference in the styles of
play is told by the statistics. Pur-
due made 19 of 46 shots for the
astonishing average of 413, but
the Boilermakers took only nine
shots all night from behind the
foul line, driving directly under
for almost all of their baskets.
Michigan shot 83 times, 51 of the
attempts from farther away than
the foul line and had a cold aver-
age of 192.
First Half Close
Coach Cowles Wolverines gave
the Boilermakers a nip and tuck
tussle during the first half. The
lead see sawed with Michigan
leading at 11-7 and again at 25-24
before Purdue took a 27-25 mar-
gin at half time.
Captain Hoffman then swept
.the Wolverines off their feet with
his ball stealingtactics at the start
of the second half. The Purdue
leader ripped under the hoop for
eight straight points and the 35-
25 margin was enough for Pur-
Suprunowicz tried to shoot
Michigan back into the game and
managed to bring them up to 38-
34 and then 45-40, but at this
stage Ehlers went wild on drives
under the basket and Michigan
began losing regulars via the per-
sonal foul route.
Jackson Raps
Black's Ruling
On.Wage Law
WASHINGTON, Feb. 17-()-
Justice Jackson spoke out sharply
today against "elastic and some-
what unpredictable interpreta-
tions" by his Supreme Court col-
leagues of the Wage-Hour Law on
which' the portal pay claims are
The ruling he specifically as-
sailed was delivered by his old
antagonist, Justice Black.
Jackson resorted to a separate
concurring opinion for his criti-
cism, making it apparent that he
has not been restrained by any
conciliatory efforts Chief Justice
Vinson may have made since Jack-
son issued his public assault upon
Black from Nuernberg last sum-
Jackson's immediate target was
an opinion today which upset a
finding of the Wage-Hour Ad-
ministrator that certain appren-
tice railroad men were "employes"
under the act. Jackson and the
eight other justices agreed the
men did not come under the act.
Black was assigned to write the
opinion, and Jackson disliked his
reasoning and said so.
"No kind of agreement between
the parties in, interest settling
borderline cases in any way satis-
factory to themselves,' however
fairly arrived at, is today worth
the paper it is written on," he said.
"Interminable litigation stimulat-
ed by a contingent reward to at-
torney is necessitated by the pres-
ent state of the Court's decision."

WASHINGTON, Feb. 17-(R)-
A "hold everything" order today
forced the postponement of House
legislation to cut income taxes,
even as the Senate voted to keep
in effect the ighl wartime tax
rates on luxuries, travel and tele-
phone bills.
In announcing the oider, Chair-
man Knutson (Rep., Minn.) of the,
house Ways and Means Commit-
tee told reporters that if Congress
fails to slash $6,000,000,000 from
President Truman's $37,500,000,000
budget, "it will kill any idea of a
20 per cent (income) tax cut."
Knutson 'declined to estimate
when he may set income tax hear-
ings to begin, saying only the mat-
ter must wait until the budget is-

VA Chief Target of Budget Cu
As Appropriations Committe
Presen1ts New Bill To Congres

With the Senate apparently
ready to hold the budget
cutting to $4,500,000,00-to
avoid slashes for the Army and
Navy-Knutson said that if the
lower cut prevails "the tax re-
duction this year certainly will
be something less than 20 per
The Ways and Means Chair-
man, with no end of the budget
battle yet in sight, announced
he had called off hearings set to
begin tomorrow on his House

The Senate decision to retain
wartime excise rates, on -whisky,
beer, fur coats, lipsticks, luggage,
admissions, passenger fares, etc.,
was on' a simple voice vote. The
House had likewise voted to re-
tain them, but because of differ-
ences of wording, the Senate and
House versions will have to be ad-
justed in conference.
Knutson emphasized that
postponement of income tax leg-
islation would not upset his
plan to apply retroactively to
January 1 whatever cut is voted.
On this point! he differs with
Senate Republican leader Taft,
of Ohio, who insists that tax
reductions not become effective
before July 1.
These were the principal devel-
opments in a day during which the
budget battle broke out all over
Capitol Hill:
Democrats accused Republicans
of seeking to "gag" the House by
preventing any members from of-
fering an amendment to the
$6,000,000,000,000 budget slashing
resolution when it is brought to
the floor on Thursday for a vote.
Student Group
Plans Revamp
Of Exchange
Ken Bissell, director of the Stu-
dent Book Exchange, said yester-
day that reorganization is being
planned for the management of
the Exchange.
Members of the American Vet-
erans' Committee, the service fra-
ternity Alpha Phi Omega, and the
committee of the Student Legis-
lature, at present in charge of
management of the mart, Bissell
said, have been discussing a plan
which would put - the book store
under the control of i board of
seven directors.
The Board would include, in ad-
dition to members from each of
the foregoing organizations, a rep-
resentative of the Michigan
League, the former director of the
Exchange under the old system,
the present director, and the Au-
ditor of Student Accounts.
Under the present system a com-
mittee of the Student Legislature
contracts with a director, who in
turn discharges the responsibilities
of the Exchange, Bissell explained.
Facilities of the Book Exchange
will be available all semester to
students, Bissell added. The mart
is located on the second floor 'of
the League.
Books still short in supply, he
said, are Crocker's "Public Speak-
ing" and Ellsworth's "Interna-
tional Economics."

Records Show 101 Students
Made All A's Last Semester
Those elusive Phi Beta Kappa keys are one semester closer to 101
students who topped the list of campus scholars last term after, earn-
ing all-A records.
The total includes 88 students in the literary college, six in the
music school, three each in the forestry and public health schools and
two in the education school.
Number Increases with Enrollment
Charles H. Peake, assistant dean of the literary college, pointed
out that the number of all-A students has increased nearly propor-
tionally with the enrollment. The number of students in the literary
college earning all A's last spring was 65 while in the fall term of 1945
it was 41.J
During the last summer session, 75 students in the literary col-
lege earned all A's. Dean Peake explained that although the enroll-
ment was lower, the individual
study load was lighter, resulting
in a higher percentage of perfect M rs. l pper
records. iis l p e

Scientist Sees
A-Bombs 1,000
Times Worse
CHICAGO, Feb. 17-(P)-Future
atomic bombs may be 1,000 times
more powerful than those used on
Jalpan and may devastate 400
square miles "at a single blow,"
Edward Teller, a leading atomic
scientist, said tonight.
And an enemy releasing them
off the Pacific coast, he added,
could endanger the entire United
States by their radioactivity with-
out delivering a single bomb into
American territory.
Teller, University of Chicago
physics professor who worked on
the atomic bomb, outlined the pos-
sibilities in an article in the new
"Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists,"
monthly publication of the scien-
tific group.
"The radioactivity produced by
the Bikini bombs was detected
within abo'ut one week in' the
United States, he wrote. In the
meantime the westerly winds had
swept the air mass from Bikini
to this country. The activity when
it reached our shores was weak,
completely harmless.
Gripes Group
T Open op
The Student Legislature's Gripes
Committee, designed as a sound-
ing-board for student complaints
and suggestions, opens for busi-
ness at 3 p.m. today in the Union.
Exercising for the first time its
function of acting as a medium
between the campus and the Leg-
islature, the Committee will meet
from 3 to 5 p.m. today, tomorrowi
and Thursday in Rm. 306 of the
Union. The Committee was estab-
lished, according to Tom Walsh,
its originator and chairman, to
"provide a means through which
a studentfor faculty member can
present a complaint or suggestion
for prompt action."
"We hope," Walsh said, "that
students who might shy away from
complaining to University offi-
cials will feel free to gripe to
fellow students."
