"The fall semester ran a full
15 weeks," he pointed out. "This is
exactly as long as the spring se-
mester. The complaints apparently
have arisen from a mistaken no-
tion that the semester was made
shorter than usual to accommo-
date the longer examination pe-
riod. What did happen was that
the semester, originally scheduled
for 16 weeks, was merely made
the same length as the spring
semester."
Prof. Dwyer and Prof. Kessler
were in agreement that at least 22
examination periods were neces-
sary with so many noon, late af-
ternooh and evening classes. If
the examination period were to
be shortened, they pointed out, a
return to three two-hour periods
a day might be necessary.
Both professors have recom-
mended, that the examination pe-
riod for the spring semester begin
the day after Memorial Day as
now scheduled, but extend until
the Thursday, instead of Tuesday,
before commencement.

AVC To Seek
End of Reports
Vet Complaints Cause
Probe of Directive
A three-member committee of
the University chapter of AVC will
confer with Robert S. Waldrop,
director of the Veterans Service
Bureau, today to determine whe-
ther the veterans absence report
"nuisance" can be eliminated.
George Antonofsky, committee
spokesman, said yesterday the
group will try to learn the author-
ity for the original Veterans Ad-
ministration directive and the
need for weekly absence reports
to carry out the directive.
Waldrop said last Saturday the
weekly reports were necessary be-
cause the VA had ordered that it
be notified whenever a veteran
misses five "days" of class. It is
possible for a veteran to miss five
"days" in a week, Waldrop added.
Antonofsky said the inquiry was
prompted by veterans "gripes"
stemming from the requirement.
"We are interested in reducing
the amount of red tape a veteran
has to contend with, and perhaps
this nuisance can be eliminated,"
he said.
Ten Families
Return Home
The ten hapless families who got
only an icy reception from their
homes in the Veterans' Village at
Hill and S. Fifth Ave. over the
weekend returned to them yester-
day.
The student families, many with
children, took temporary shelter in
the Union after an ice slide from
the roof of the Coliseum crashed
through the roofs of five of the
dwelling units in the Village.
Immediately after the slide,
damage was estimated at $3,000.
No final figures were available
yesterday.

Republicans
Vote Against
Six Billion Cut
Tax Slash Prospects
Dimmed by Decision
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 18-Sen-
ate Republicans, confronted by
Army-Navy warnings against risk-
ing the nation's military security,
voted 22 to 19 today to hold the
proposed budget cut to $4,500,-
000,000 rather than $6,000,000,000.
ChairmanKnutson (Rep.-Minn.)
of the House Ways and Means
Committee said the smaller slash
would throw overboard all pros-
pects of a 20 per cent tax cut,
and require a smaller percentage
of tax relief.
Senate Conference
A conference of Senate Repub-
licans threw out the $6,000,000,000
figure after three of their leaders,
Senators Taft of Ohio, Vanden-
berg of Michigan and White of
Maine, were reported to have de-
clared in the closed door session
that now is not the time for Am-
erica to disarm, with the peace
of the world unsettled.
"There was a feeling in the con-
ference," Senator Millikin (Rep.-
Colo.) said, "that if we cut the
military too deeply we might com-
mit some blunders we could not
rectify."
Armed Services
Under the proposed $6,000,000,-
000 slash ,a $1,750,000,000 cut was
understood to be contemplated in
President Truman's request of
$11,200,000,000 for the armed ser-
vices.
The $4,500,00000 slash would
trim Mr. Truman's budget for the
fiscal year beginning July 1 from
$37,500,000,000 down to $33,000,-
000,000.
The Senate begins formal de-
bate on the budget issue tomor-
row and Millikin, Chairman of the
Finance Committee, told report-
ers "it would seem that the
$4,500,000,000 would be sure to
prevail."
Meanwhile, House Democrats
cried "gag rule" at a Republican
move in that. body to ban any
amendments to the resolution
calling for a $6,000,000,000 bud-
get reduction, when that body
comes to a vote on Thursday.

DOUBLE FEATURE:
Courses in English, History
Taught in Lydia Mendelssohn
0>

By GAY LARSEN
The presence of some 750 lit-
erary college students using the
lush interior of Lydia Mendel-
ssohn Theatre in the League, as
a classroom six hours a week is
probably somewhat of a shock to
the shades of the theatre - if
there are any.
Students in English 184, a mod-
ern novel course taught by Prof.
Joe Lee Davis, and History 180,
"Roosevelt to Roosevelt," taught
by Prof. Dwight L. Dumond, have
probably signed up for two of the
most comfortable courses on cam-
pus, barring the inconvenience of
taking notes on their laps and the
effect the cozy seats may have on
their powers of concentration.
Two Courses
The two courses run consecu-
tively on Monday, Wednesday and
Friday at 10 and 11 a.m. Several
students taking both courses have
been heard to refer to them as
their "daily double feature."
The professors, who 1 e c t u r e
from the stage, do not seem to
be disturbed by their unusual
classes. As. Prof. Dumond point-
ed out, the acoustics of the thea-
tre are much better than those
in the typical classroom.
Not Crowded
The classes are not at all crowd-
ed, as the theatre will hold 691
people. There are about 365 in

the modern novel course and 400
in the "Roosevelt to Roosevelt"
class.
Lydia Mendelssohn is but one
of several exotic classrooms which
have been opened to'accomodate
the ever-record-breaking enroll-
ment. Hill Auditorium and the
West Gallery in Alumni Memorial
Hall have housed courses in po-
litical science and psychology,
mathematics has invaded the Law
School - and in- general the lo-
cation of classes is becoming less
and less relative to the purpose
for which the classrooms and
buildings were designed.
rst 'Gripes'
Session Held
More Complaints
Invited by Chairman
The Student Legislature's
"Gripes Committee" satisfactorily
took care of its only customer in
its first day of operation yesterday.
Tom Walsh, chairman of the
committee which will hold office
hours from 3 to 5 p.m. today and
tomorrow in Rm. 306, Michigan
Union, expressed disappointment
over the lack of student response.
"The Committee on Student
Suggestions and Complaints can
provide an effective mirror for the
voice of the individual student on
campus," he declared. "The Com-
mittee will follow through on sug-
gestions and complaints presented
to it, seeking to correct existing
situations or bring to light the
reasons for continuance," Walsh
said.
"The 'Gripes Committee' was
established originally," he ex-
plained, "because many of the
members of the Student Legisla-
ture believed that many of the
"bull session" gripes could be elim-
inated if they were taken up with
the proper authorities.

Breakey Wins
Judicial Post
Eastover Annexation
Approved by Voters
Final tabulations in Monday's
county-wide primary election gave
incumbent Circuit Judge Breakey
a wide margin over his opponent,
Municipal Judge Jay H. Payne, in
the race for circuit judge.
With all but two small out-coun-
ty precincts reporting, tabulations
gave Judge Breakey 3,394 votes to
1,532 for his fellow jurist. Both
names will appear on the ballot in
April's direct election, since the
law requires that two names be
submitted in a non-partisan ju-
dicial race.
Voters balloted "yes" on. the
Eastover Hills Annexation ques-
tion. The question, approved by a
two to one vote, means that East-
over Hills will be made a part of
Ann Arbor city.
In the city election, final, of-
ficial tabulations gave Walter
Garthe, Lawrence Leever, Rob-
ert Ward and Bernard Harkins
the nominations for aldermen in
the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 7th wards
respectively. The nominees, all
on the Republican ticket, are thus
far unopposed in the April elec-
tion.
Tickets for Ski
Trip on Sale
Tickets for "Snow Slide," Union
sponsored skiing trip to Grayling,
Michigan, will be on sale from
7 p.m. to 8 p.m. today at the Un-
ion.
The trip, scheduled for Satur-
day and Sunday, will be made via
specially chartered busses which
will leave Ann Arbor at 6:30 a.m.
Saturday. The return trip will
start at 1 p.m. Sunday. The trip
is open to women, as well, as men
students.
Cost of the tickets, which in-
cludes transportation and lodging,
is $8.00.

Daily-Lmanian
LECTURES IN LUXURY - Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre can count on a non-capacity, non-ap-
plauding and non-paying audience just about six times a week this term. The picture shows part
of a comfortable audience which meets at the theatre three times a week for a "Modern Novel"
course.
