Appropria tions

Seek Aid for
Program of
New Building
Faced by Current
Operation Deficit
The University has requested a
state appropriation of $8,570,000
for operations for each of the next
two years and for $13,210,000 to
complete the present building pro-
gram and proposed new buildings,
President Alexander G. Ruthven
announced yesterday.
Operations Deficit
The -budget request also asks
$1,250,000 to meet the operations
deficit for the current year. Bud-
get requests are now being pre-
pared for public release by the of-
gee of State Budget Director John
Perkins. The entire University
request totals $31,600,000.
Commenting on the University's
request, House Ways and Means

ings now under construction
"should be finished." He declared
he was unable to predict how

Visit Campus
Occasion for the announcement
of the appropriation request and
Espie's statement was a visit to
campus yesterday of Espie's com-
mittee. President Ruthven told
the committee that the budget
is based on an anticipated-enroll-
ment of 20,500 students. He point-
ed out that the per student cost
to the state will be approximately
$420, the smallest in several years.
President Ruthven compliment-
ed the legislature and state of-
ficials for their "foresight and
statesmanship in authorizing
Michigan's state education insti-
tutions to begin their construction
programs in 1946." "By starting
in 1946," President Ruthven said,
"the state is at least one year
ahead in meeting the ever-grow-
ing emergency which will be acute
by the fall of '47."
To Complete Buildings
He said, however, that it would
be impossible to provide educa-
tional opportunity for 20,000 stu-
dents with a plant built for no
more than 10,000. There is a limit
to improvization, he insisted.
Completion of the five educa-
tional buildings now under con-
struction accounts for $6,360,000
of the request for building funds.
Additions to Angell Hall and the
General Library would require an
estimated $6,000,000. Cost for ex-
tension of the power plant and
heating system and construction
of a fire station will be $850,000.

U.S. Seeks Deadline in
Atomic Control Talks
Russia Continues To Urge Quick
Action on Whole Arms Program

By The Associated Press
-The United States was report-
ed tonight to have decided to de-:
mand that the United Nations
Security Council begin debate on
specified measures for atomic con-
trol by Feb. 4 at the latest.
Deadline Set
Informed quarters said U.S.
delegate Warren R. Austin would
propose the deadline to the Coun-
cil at tomorrow's meeting which
is scheduled for noon and added
that he might press for an im-
mediate vote.
The new U.S. plan became
known shortly after Austin took
the oath of office as American
delegate in a simple ceremony in
his office.
Avoid Delay
The U.S. delegation was report-
ed to have had two objects inmind
in selecting Feb. 4 as the dead-
line: first,to make sure that
there was no unnecessary delay
in the study of the recommenda-
tions of the atomic commission
and, second, to give all delegates
time to consult their governments
on the atomic proposals.
The American decision empha-
sized the fact that the Council
still was far from agreement on
the conflicting U.S. and Russian
proposals on how to tackle the
vital arms reduction program. The

To Germany
For 60 Days
Prof. James K. Pollock will leave
for Germany Monday for "about
60 days" to serve as advisor to
Gen. Lucius Clay.
Gen. Clay's request for Prof.
Pollock was relayed to him by
assistant Secretary of War Robert
President Ruthven is expected
to give tentative approval to Prof.
Pollock's leave of absence pending
final approval by the Board of
Regents, which will not meet
before he leaves.
Prof. Pollock is expected to ad-
vise Gen. Clay on problems aris-
ing in connection with: 1) the es-
tablishment and operation of state
governments in the American
zone, 2) the impending Moscow
Conference, 3) the unification of
the American and British zones.
Commenting on his job in the
American zone, Prof. Pollock said
that "the American zone is the
only one which has had a com-
plete cycle of elections, and now
the people are in the process of
organizing the new state govern-
ments they have elected."
Prof. Pollock's job will include
travelling around the American
zone to see how these new govern-
ments are working and to advise
Gen. Clay on related matters.
Prof. Pollock served as civilian
advisor to Gen. Clay from July,
1945 to September, 1946 when on

Excise Taxes.
Ma Continue
Measure Planned
To Stop Rollback
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 14--Chair-
man Knutson (Rep., Minn.) of the
Ways and Means Committee an-
nounced today that House Repub-
lican tax managers will sponsor
quick passage of legislation to
continue indefinitely the high
wartime excise levies on liquor,
furs, jewelry and many other goods
and services.
Forestalls Rollback
The measure, forestalling an au-
tomatic rollback of the excise list
on July 1 with an annual revenue
loss of $1,500,000,000, will be given
precedence over all other tax bills.
Knutson said it might be approved
by the tax-framing committee on
Such action would coincide with
a recommendation made by Presi-
dent Truman in a message to Con-
gress last week.
Deals with Distress
Knutson said action to keep the
war rates indefinitely is necessary
to deal with distress threatened in
some businesses. In some lines
customers are delaying purchases
pending the tax reductions.
"The bill would remove the in-
centive to stop buying in anticipa-

Bill Hewitt, U
Gridiron Hero,
Killed in Crash
SELLERSVILLE, Pa., Jan. 14.-
(P-William E. (Bill) Hewitt, one
of Michigan's all-time football
greats, was fatally injured today
in an automobile which left the
Bethlehern pike about three miles
south of here and struck a culvert.
He was 37.
Hewitt, who resided with his
wife at Drexel Hill, Philadelphia,
was found un-conscious by the
road and taken to a hospital
where he died about two hours
Rated as one of Michigan's f in-
est~ football players, Hewitt was
considered by his coach, the late
Fielding H. Yost, as a potential
Al-American at any position on
the field.
During the 1929 season, Hewitt
starred at end. The following year
an early season leg fracture put
him out of action, but in 1931 he
returned to play fullback.
After graduating in 1932, Hewitt
played professional football for
nine years with the Chicago Bears
and the Philadelphia Eagles. In
1933, he was selected as the great-
est player in the Professional
League by four Pro League coaches
who aided in the selection of an
Al-American Pro Grid team.

Class Cuts
Payments May Be
Affected By Rule
Number of Absences To Be Deducted
From Amount of Leave Requested
The Veterans Administration,'in a new interpretation of "leave
of absence" and pointing to stricter qualifications for subsistence pay-
ments, has ordered all student veterans throughout the nation to re-
port their class cuts for the fall semester, University officials disclosed
Under provisions of the VA order, the number of days a
veteran is absent from class will be deducted from the amount of
leave due him when leave is requested, Robert S. Waldrop, director
of the Veterans Service Bureau, who conferred with VA officials in
Detroit yesterday, said.
Concerning the effect on a veteran's subsistence payments while.
in training, Waldrop said that "in semesters to come, veterans' grades

gram, on, "Humanism Or Beyond

ings will probably be checked."
The University's 11,000 veter-
ans will report their absences to
the VA by filing a special form,
a copy of which appears on page
two of today's Daily. The forms
will be available from 8:30 a.m.
to 4:30 p.m. tomorrow, Friday,
Monday and Tuesday and from
8:30 a.ni. to noon Saturday at
places designated by the Uni-
versity's schools and colleges.
Although predicting that subsis-
tence payments may be affected
by class absences in the future,
Waldrop declared there will be "no
immediate practical effect."
He added that "in the future it
is expected that more accurate re-
ports of absences and progress
(grades) will be required by the
VA of institutions where veterans
are enrolled."
Another University official,
who asked that his name be
withheld, said: "The University
will continue to cooperate with
the Veterans Administration,
but this directive has come at a
slightly inopportune time."
In filing his "certification oft
absences for the fall semester," a
veteran will compute his "number
of days absent" on the following
If he has one class scheduled for
a given day and does not attend
the class, he has been absent "one
If he has four classes scheduled
and misses two of them, he has
been absent "one-half day."
Other fractions of days absent
are to be computed on the same
Exempt from the count are
"bolts" and classes missed by the
veteran while representing the
University in athletics and other
"officially sanctioned" activities.
The reports on fall semester
absences will be made under the
"honor system" in the great
majority of cases, since most of
the University's schools and col-
leges do not require faculty
members to keep records of
class attendance.
The Veterans Administration, in
transmitting its order to the na-
tion's education institutions, em-
phasized hat a veteran's request
for leave (vation with subsis-
tence pay) will be held up if a
certification of his class absences
is not on fle.

Strike Spreads
Hope Seen To End
Walkout in 48 Hours
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Jan. 14-A crippling
strike by 30,000 truck drivers and
market workers spread to London's
docks today as government, union
and industrial leaders hurriedly
set up new negotiations machinery
in the hope of ending the walkout
in 48 hours.
Although the number of troops
distributing food from markets to
retailers increased, mostly butcher
shops were without meat, potatoes
were almost unobtainable, and the
national association of master bak-
ers sought an immediate confer-
ence with food minister John
Strachey because the flour short-
age had reached serious propor-
Fish was scarce-Billingsgate
market workers were among those
joining the sympathy strike-and
restaurant menus, seldom tempt-
ing, had more than the usual war-
time austerity about them. Gro-
cery stores reported a heavy
drain on their small stocks of
canned meats.
Stevedores and dockers, various-
ly estimated to number between
3,500 and 8,000, followed the ex-
ample of market workers who left
their jobs earlier in protest against
the use of troops to distribute food
unhandled by truckmen who be-
gan their walkout nine days ago.

During the first four months of
the present semester the Univer-
sity has made between 1,500 and
2,000 loans totalling more than
$102,000, Jory said.
According to a ruling made by
the Regents, students with ac-

ized in the following manner:
a) All academic credits will be
withheld, grades forthe semester
just completed will not be re-
