Optimism over the arms pro-

of atomic energy with step-by-

would be given top priority in the
plan to discard arms.
Izvestia Comments Favorably
The optimism was reflected as

AVC Survey of 1,149 Students Here
Finds 80 Per Cent Going into 'The Red'
Increase of veterans subsistence allotments was favored by more
than 83 per cent of the 1,149 University student veterans going to school
on the GI Bill who were polled by the campus AVC in its recent cost-
of-living survey.
Thirteen per cent of the veterans polled were opposed to an in-
crease, while four per cent voiced no opinion, according to figures an-
nounced yesterday by Lorne Cook, chairman of the University chapter
of the AVC, which conducted the survey.
An overwhelming majority of the veterans were in favor of the
increased subsistence, apparently regardless of the individual finan-
cial position. Of the 80 per ctnt of the veterans polled who indicated
that they were going in the red each month, more than 86 per cent fa-
vored an increase, while 74 per cent of the veterans who art staying in

the black voted for an increase.

Robert L. Taylor, vice-president
of Student Legislature, was named
recipient of a Rhodes Scholarship
to Oxford University, England, by
the Great Lakes District Rhodes

Taylor was included among six
midwestern men selected from
eighteen candidates to receive the
awards. Capt. George A. Rebh, of
Dearborn, Mich., was the only
Michigan resident named.
A graduate student in mathe-
matics at the University, Taylor
is a member of both Phi Beta
Kappa and Tau Beta Pi. He re-
ceived his Bachelor of Arts de-

Increase of allotments was fa-
vored by a distinctly larger
share of the married veterans
than of the single vets.
Married veterans indicated that
89.8 per cent of them were in fa-
vor of an increase, while only 80
per cent of the single vets were on
record as favoring it.
Of those who did favor an in-
increase, 81 per cent are in the
red and 19 per cent are in the
black, while those opposing an
increase are 66 per cent in the red
and 34 per cent in the black, ac-
cording to the suvrey.

Medicine Hit
ByDr. Wile
The threat of a regimented
form of medical practice should
be combatted by men entering the
medical profession, Dr. Udo J.
Wile, Professor of Dermatology
and Syphilology, told 141 Medical,
School graduates in a commence-
ment address yesterday.
Although it is recognized that
many in the lower income groups
cannot afford adequate medical
care, Dr. Wile declared, a "cen-
tralized, governmentally-controllel
system of medicine is not the
answer." The traditional doctor-
patient relationship can be pain-
tained with voluntary health plans
and insurance systems, he point-
ed out.
Dr. Wile also cautioned the
graduates against over-optimism
in regard to "miracle drugs" and
other medical advances. Doctors
nust recognize that many areas
still remain in which they have
little knowledge, he said.
The graduates, six of whom are
women, will take internships in
hospitals throughout the United
States and in Panama to complete
heir professional training.
This was the last class to be
graduated under the wartime

Students Are
Penalized for
Liquor Buyers
Fined Heavily
Two University students received
stiff sentences from the Univer-
sity Disciplinary board yesterday
afternoon for obtaining liquor
identification cards with altered
birth certificates.
Both students, whose names
were withheld, were fined $25.00 by
the board and placed on probation
for the rest of the acadamic year,
a University spokesman said. A
third student was put on proba-
tion for the rest of the term for
attempting to misrepresent his age.
The board members, Prof. Grov-
er C. Grismore, of the Law School,
Prof. Axel Marin, of the engineer-
ing college, and Prof. Arthur Van
Duren, of the literary college, voted
the punitive measures after hear-
ing the offenders' testimonies.
Talbot Honey, chairman of the
Student Legislature Judiciary
Committee, and Dean Joseph A.
Bursley participated in the dis-
cussion without voting rights.
Extra-Curricular Rights Cut
The probationary sentence sus-
pends the student's rights to par-
ticipate in any extra-curricular ac-
tivities for the duration of the
time period.
Mrs. Luella M. Smith, Washte-
naw county clerk, discovered the
alterations after questioning the
students. She revealed that one
student had boosted his age three
years "very cleverly."
Acted on Hunch
"It was such a beautiful altera-
tion job that I was not certain that
it had been changed at first, but I
checked it closely afterwards on
a hunch and contacted the clerk
who issued the certficate," Mrs.
Smith said.
She stated that a new policy
would be used for those persons
who lose their cards before they
can obtain a duplicate. It will re-
quire not only a statement of age
but also a sworn affidavit from a
private attorney which must be
presented to the county clerk.
The loss of the identification
card and the credentials of the
owner will be investigated. If the
card is not recovered, the clerk
will then issue a duplicate and
file the affidavit. The second card
will not be replaced.
Mrs. Smith asserted that all of
the 3,967 cards issued would be
checked over for duplication and
all future applicants would be
checked as closely as possible to
prevent any fraud.

the program advocated by Wyatt,
former mayor of Louisville, Ky.,
who quit last week as housing ex-

poration will continue to assist
producers of prefabricated hous-

RFC Dispute .
The RFC financing matter was
one particularly in dispute. Wyatt
wanted power to direct RFC to
make prefabrication loans. He had
asked for some $60,000,000 in such
loans and gotten about $4,000,000
The President apparently settled

The $80 a month ceiling on

is revised also, with new rental
limits to be established on each

In the case of rental housing
projects, $80 will be the average
rent for each dwelling unit, in-
stead of the ceiling.
The limitation on store, fac-
