Budget Controviersy

assed the second precipitous spot in

paramount objection to the cut is
w it will deal to the administration

aoitical parties, perceiving definite

loc in a futile effort to defray the re-
ndation. President Truman, Secre-
War Patterson and Secretary of the
Forrestal emphatically protested
it on the same account. Moreover,

True, the legislators have before them
the reports of budget experts, but it ap-
pears that most of them have chosen to
ignore these estimates. It hardly seems pos-
sible that the individual committee members
all by themselves can determine accurately
the needs of the administration. Disagree-
ment is, of course, a concomitant of and
prerequisite for democratic government. It
is the one condition which makes democratic
processes worthwhile. Nevertheless, the

ministrative subordinates ought to know
just how much money is indispensable for

British Crisis
brother's keeper, so far as Great Britain
is concerned. Everything that relates to the
contentment and welfare of the British
people relates to the people of the Uhited
States. We fought side by side the greatest
war in history-and if the British, with
gritted teeth, had not desperately held the
line until we could belatedly prepare to
fight for our common cause, Hitler would
have won. Uncomplainingly, the British peo-
ple suffered greatly during the war while
here we felt few deprivations. It cannot be
denied that if England had not withstood
the Nazis during those terrible days when
she fought alone with determination and
fortitude, the United - States would have
found itself with its back to the wall, facing
the invading hordes of Hitler.
Today, Great Britain is fighting just as
desperate and an even more insidious battle
than Hitler was ever able to wage. Cold
and desperate want stalk the length and
breadth of the British Islands and we have
yet to say: "We stood by each other in re-
sistance to the German hordes, we will stick
to each other through the present terrible
crisis." The main difficulty in Great Brit-
ain today is the lack of enough coal for her
manufacturing needs, for the generation
of power and to furnish heat for homes.
Let there be no mistake. This is not the
fault of the Labor Government. During the
war, England had to draft manpower to dig
coal. The difficulty in England, with respect
to coal, goes back years before there was a
Labor Government. If Churchill were in
power today, Great Britain would still lack
coal and without coal Great Britain would
be in dire extremity. Churchill is too wise
not to know this. Perhaps he has not moved
a vote of lack of confidence in the govern-
ment because he has no solution for the
problem that must be met if Great Britain
is to recover economically.
The overthrow of the Labor Govern-
ment would not mean the restoration of
private enterprise as we understand it in
this country. It would not mean this be-
cause there are lacking today in Great
Britain the economic and social factors
without which such an economic system
as ours could not exist. The grave danger
is that if the Labor Government should
fall it would be succeeded immediately or,
at best, after a short interval, by a radical
government very much further to the left
than Great Britain has ever gone or now
wants to go. Such a government in Great
Britain would be such a threat to our
Americarn economic system as it has never
been called upon to meet.
So both humanity and political acumen
call upon this country to do whatever it can
to sustain the economy of Great Britain at
this time of great travail. Nothing short of
this would be either humane or intelligent.
Just as we needed and freely used the Brit-
ish Isles for a buffer state when Hitler went
berserk, so do we need them now as a buffer
economic state against comimunism or. worse
still, stark anarchy. Nor is there any time
to lose. During the war we were constantly
in danger of arriving "too late with too
little." We ought to profit by that experi-
ence in this situation which is fraught with
as threatening consequences as was the war
Our own supply of coal is practically in-
exhaustibe, and there is coal enough in
Europe to take'care of its needs. Great
Britain, France and the United States
have grossly bungled in producing the
abundant coal of Germany that would
satisfy the wants of Europe. And now,
due to the fault of all of us, Great Britain
and Europe are deeply suffering in the
coldest winter in fifty years while here we
live in comfort with enough heat, despite
John L. Lewis, and enough food for all.

And the worst of it is that, in our smug-
ness, we believe that our plenty, as com-
pared with the tragic want in Europe, is
the result of some innate virtue of our
own. It isn't. It was merely our luck dur-
ing the last war that England and France
and Belgium and Italy were the battle
grounds. It is merely our luck now that
the economic trenches are in Europe.
We probably will never have such luck
And so it behooves us, both as Christians
and as comrades in arms, to give the help
that we are able to give. A prostrate English
economy will mean a prostrate United States
economy, sooner or later. The unchained
economic demons that are now ravaging
England, will, in their inevitable course, turn
their horrid visages in our direction. And
when that day comes it will be an especial-
ly sorry one for us if we have cause to re-
member that in this day of Great Britain's
extremity, all that we could say was: "I am
not my brother's keeper."

Analysis of tax facts and tax trends in-
dicates that the federal tax net must be cast
over a large group of taxpayers to meet the
costs of government, that there are not
enough upper-brackettaxpayers. It also
reveals that tax increases since 1929 have
concentrated on the middle and upper
incomes. -The United States News


The Detroit Symphony Orchestra under
the direction of Karl Krueger presented the
eighth of the current Choral Union concerts
last night at Hill Auditorium with unhappy
The major portion of the program was
devoted to the Beethoven Symphony No. 4
in B-flat major and the Tchaikovsky Sym-
phony No. 6 in B minor ("Pathetique').
Of the two the Beethoven suffered the
worse treatment. This rarely played sym-
phony is probably the most completely
happy and disarming orchestral work the
composer ever wrote. At the hands of Mr.
Krueger and the orchestra last night it
emerged a listless, unimaginative and al-
most totally uninspired work. Mr. Krue-
ger was apparently indifferent to the
potentialities of a faster tempo and an
incisive approach offered in the first
movement and distilled practically nothing
from the second and third movements.
More interest was displayed in the Pathet-
ique but it was marked throughout by sloppy
musicianship and at best a superficial
Mr. Krueger and the orchestra opened the
program with a mechanical performance of
the Beethoven "Prometheus" overture.
-Harry Levine
The President's declaration that the
American Government stands ready to do
everything in its power to relieve the plight
of the British is not, as he says, in response
to any appeal for aid. The British have not
asked for help in the emergency that has
put the whole nation back oh a war tooting.
There is no question that in their pride they
would prefer to overcome the crisis by their
own efforts. The spartan sacrifices they have
made in the bleak years since the fighting
ended give the measure of the high price
they are obliged to pay, and above all are
willing to pay, to regain financial and eco-
nomic independence. Mr. Truman's offer to
help means more because it is a spontaneous
gesture, and a gesture which truly inter-
prets as he often does when he speaks from
the heart, the sentiments of the country.
The New York Times
The trend is toward an increasing flood
'of aliens into the United States in the
period ahead, even under- existing immi-
gration laws. Only the lack of shipping now
holds back thousands of potential immi-
grants from Europe each month. More and
more are coming from Latin America, which
has no quota restrictions. Illegal entries are
going up sharply, and it is difficult to catch
foreigners who get in undetected, as citi-

The Parking Problem:
The cooperation of all concern-
ed, both students and faculty, is
earnestly requested in the present
parking emergency, so that all
may benefit in so far as that is
The University Council has laid
down certain rules which attempt.
to regulate parking in the restrict-
ed areas on the campus. These
areas are plainly marked to indi-
cate that only those cars bearing
parking permit plates may park
in them. The rules provide that
those with the rank of instructor
or above and those on the admin-
istrative staff to whom the privil-
ege is ,accorded may obtain the
proper plates at the Information
Desk, Room 1, University Hall. To
date 850 plates have been issued;
the number of spaces available
on the campus in the restricted
areas is approximately one half
that number. This situation in
itself creates one problem. When
holders of permits park their cars
carelessly, taking more room than
is necessary, and park so as to
prevent any possibility of exit, the
problem is aggravated; and when
those having, no parking plates
park in restricted areas, the whole
system of control breaks down.
The driving permits. issued to
students by the Office of Student
Affairs, do not entitle the holders
to park in any restricted parking
area, except for those students who
are physically incapacitated to
whom campus permit plates have
been issued.
It is the sincere hope of the
committee, to which the Univer-
sity Council has delegated the re-
sponsibility of administering the
rules with respect to parking, that
-a thoughtful respect for the rights
of the others may ease the prob-
lem for all.

Courses may not be elected for
credit after the end of the second
week. Friday, February 21, is
therefore the last day on which

The willingness of an instructor to

interpretation of the Veterans
Administration with regard to tak-
ing courses on a refresher, or any
non-credit basis.
The Veteran Administration
will make payment for tuition
supplies and subsistence only un-

1. The veteran must enroll in
the course on a refresher or non-
credit basis. Change of election
regulations for the school or unit
in which the veteran is enrolled;
will govern any change of status
from credit to non-credit.
2. The Veteran must do all the

To All Graduate and Undergradu-
ate Students:
At a meeting of the University
Committee on Student Conduct
held January 28, 1947, the follow-
ing motion was adopted:
That this Committee approve
chaperoned and unchaperoned ex-
change and guest dinners; ex-
change dinners to be defined as
meals in men's residences and
women's residences attended by
representative groups of members
of approved organizations of the
other sex; guest dinners to be de-
fined as meals in men's residences
and women's residences attended
by guests of the other sex who
may or may not belong to Univer-
sity organizations. Guests at
week-day dinners are to arrive at
approximately 5:30 p.m. and are
to leave at approximately 8 p.m.;
for Sunday dinners, the guests are
to arrive at approximately 1 p.m.
and are to leave at approximately
3 p.m.
In accordance with the above
motion, the regulation relating to
women guests, paragraph 2, under
Specific Standards of Conduct,
CIPLINE (June 19, 1945) was re-
vised to read as follows:
The presence of women guests
in fraternity houses, men's room-
ing houses, or other men's room-
ing quarters, except when chap-
erones approved by University au-
thorities are present, is not in ac-,-
cordance with the generally ac-
cepted standards and conventions
of society, and is not permitted,
except for exchange and guest
dinners. Such dinners must
be announced to the Direc-
tor of the Office of Student Af-
fairs at least one day in advance
of the scheduled date. Hours for
guest dinners shall be the same
as for exchange dinners.
With this action, the University
has taken the stand that unau-
thorized gatherings of both sexes
at fraternity houses are not per-
