To Avoid Hazards
olice Capt. Barney Gainsley,
f of the local traffic squad,
erday explained the reasons
parking restrictions in the
pus area which have recently
sed complaints.
,cording to Gainsley, many,
ets in the University area have
a posted with' "no parking"
s in order to eliminate traffic
aids caused by heavy bus traf-
"With large Willow Run and
buses traversing campus
ets at frequent intervals little
zway room is left for private
orists on streets packed solidly
both sides with parked cars,"
t. Gainsley stated.
'he narrow lane left for traf-
when both sides of the street'
filled with parked cards con-
rtes a definite traffic hazard,"
t. Gainsley explained. He ex--
sed the hope that students and'
ilty motorists would abide by
dng restrictions in order to'
.inate some of these hazards.
ae proposed off-street parking
which are to be provided by
University will go a long way
ard solving the present park-
problem, according to Capt.
nsley. With the additional con-
ction about to get underway in
Upiversity area, .the problem
arking will become more acute
ss some measures are taken to
viate the situation now, he

that not more than one-half of
those holding parking permits for
restricted areas would be able to
find parking space if they all ar-
rived at campus at the same time.
The total number of driving per-
mits and exemptions from the
driving ban this term has been
announced as 3200.
According to Secretary Watkins,
the problem has been further com-
plicated by great numbers of con-
struction workmen, many of whom
must regularly drive to work from
great distances.
Recent Addition
Recent additions to University
parking space include a restricted
75-car lot on South University be-
hind West Engineering Annex, a
restricted 65-car lotto the east of
East Medical Building, and an
open lot on the University High
School athletic grounds at the
corner of East and South Univer-
sity. University High grounds,
however, will not be available dur-
ing the spring.
Construction or enlargement of
several new parking lots is
planned soon. One will be located
behind the Museum Building. Uni-
versity officials plan to increase
facilities at the northern end of
campus to some extent by remov-
ing the islands in the drive be-
tween the Chemistry and Natural
Science Buildings.
Parking lots will also be located
adjacent to the General Service
and Business Administration
Buildings now under construction.

Ohio State's
Win, 56=28
Smith,Hill Spearhead
Buckeyes' Triumph
With a couple of guys named
Hill and Smith providing the main
power, Ohio State's veteran swim-
ming armada churned to a sur-
prising 56-28 triumph over a fight-
ing Michigan squad last night be-
fore a packed house at the Sports
Building pool.
Despite the one-sidedness of the
final score, the meet was a thriller
all the way as the Buckeyes un-
veiled a half dozen national cham-
pions backed by talented reserves

Hill Double Winner
Buckeye Jack Hill was the only
double-winner of the evening, tak-
ing his specialties, the 220 and
440-yard freestyle marathons, but
it was Bill Smith who thrilled the
throng with a demonstration of
championship swimming.
The Buckeye star, who holds all
the middle-distance records in the
book, nipped teammate Halo Hi-
rose and Wolverine Dick Weinberg
in the 100-yard freestyle sprint,
took a close second to Hill in the
220 and anchored the winning
Buckeye 400-yard freestyle relay
Hirose in Fast Time
Smith's winning "century" time
of :51.3 was one of the fastest
times for the distance turned in in
recent years. Both Hirose and
Weinberg also broke :52, the lit-
tle Hawaiian being clocked in
:51.8, just a tenth of a second over
Weinberg's third-place :51.9.
In scoring his "double" Hill
cruised to the fastest times re-
corded in the nation this year. His

Slash Certain
Maybank Cites High
Red Military Budget
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 21-Sena-
tor Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.) said
today that slashing Army-Navy
funds would put Uncle Sam's arms
in a sling and might "jeopardize
our winning of the peace."
His speech on the Senate floor
appeared to clinch the prospect
that the Senate will vote for only a
$4,500,000,000 slash in President
Truman's $37,500,000,000 budget,
instead of the $6,000,000,000 cut
approved by the House.
Will Vote Monday
But with senators demanding
more time for debate, Republican.
leaders gave up hopes for obtain-
ing a vote today on a resolution
recommending a ceiling on expen-
ditures for the fiscal year starting
July 1. The vote is now expected
to come Monday.
Vandenberg, the Senate's pre-
siding officer and chairman of its
Foreign Relations Committee,
spoke for the $4,500,000,000 reduc-
"This year of all years,when the
chips are down, we dare not pre-
sent to the world a picture of a
pacifist America retiring into its
vulnerable shell-a picture of Un-
cle Sam with a chip on each shoul-
der and both arms in a sling," he
declared, reporting that other na-

Maybank Reads Dispatch
Senator Maybank (Dem., S.C.)
read a news dispatch from Moscow
to the effect that Russia's pro-
jected military expenditures are
$4,000,000,000 larger than the $11,-
200,000,000 President Truman
asked for the Army and Navy.
Vandenberg's decision to support
the smaller cut lined him up with
about half of the Republicans and
most of the Democrats.
Chairman Bridges (Rep., N.H.)
of the Senate Appropriations Con-
mittee, sponsoring the larger re-
duction, conceded to a reporter
that it has no chance.
Vandenberg observed that Sec-
retary of State Marshall had said
that a "practically impossible sit-
uation" would be created for
American troopsabroad if the
people of occupied countries were
left without food.
