Crated Chickens Voice
Protest to White House
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6-Crates of clucking chickens began arriv-
ing today at the White House and the Luckman Food Committee
headquarters as irate fowl producers protested poultryless Thursday.
The idea, variously described by Washington wits as a "Hens for
Harry" or "Leghorns for Luckman" movement, apparently originated
in New York State and was spreading.
What's the Idea?
The thesis the growers were trying to get across was that they
couldn't sell the birds, couldn't afford to keep feeding them, and

to figure out the answer.
By coincidence, the Agriculture

the Soviet Union will defend to

But he asserted the United

"It is, however, clear that the

as a preparation for aggression.

Get Priority
Cominittee Requests
Help for France, Italy
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 6. - The
prospect for tax cutting legislation
luring the special session of Con-
gress was dampened today by
President Truman and House
Speaker Joseph W. Martin, Jr.
The President told a news con-
ference that his message opening
the extra session Nov. 17 will con-
tain no references to tax revision.
At the same time, Martin told
another group of reporters that he
thinks the special session will be
too busy on foreign aid and price
stabilization problems to consider
Meanwhile, Congressional lead-
ers asked Secretary of State Mar-
shall to give the full facts Mon-
day on proposed emergency aid to
Europe, and President Truman
tagged it the No. 1 priority when
Congress returns.
Stop Gap Aid
Mr. Truman said he wants Con-;
gress to give stop-gap aid the right
of way, even over inflation con-
trols, although he conceded they
are equally important.
A special House Committee on
foreign aid recommended that
emergency help to tide France and
Italy over the winter months be
extended through the Export-Im-
port Bank and the Commodity
Credit Corporation.
The committee suggested this
alternative in the event the vari-
ous Congressional foreign - aid
committees, which meet next week,
find it is impractical to set up
other aid machinery at the forth-
coming special session 'of Con-

Rep. Herter (Rep.-Mass.), chair-
man of the special House commit-
tee, was asked by a newsman whe-
ther the committee statement was
an admission that legislators may
not be able to agree on a stop-gap
program during the coming spe-
cial session. Herter made no reply,
but other members said there is
sharp disagreement over even a
temporary program.
The Republcan Speaker indi-
cated that, though tax revision
probably would not come up at the
special session, it is his own "per-
sonal inclination" that tax reduc-
tion be made the first order of
business at the regular session in

Drive Ended
Tag Sales Exceed
Total of Last Year
Campus collections for the
World Student Service Fund Drive
reached $2,363 at the close of the
campus drive yesterday.
This does not include any of the
group contributions from residence
or campus organizations which
have not been tabulated yet, ac-
cording to Jack Passfield, chair-
man of the drive. "Personal con-
tributions will be received at Lane
Hall to make up the $137 needed
to reach the goal we expected
from the campus collecting sta-
tions," he said.
The tag sale exceeded last year's
drive by about $500, Passfield
stated. "We of the central com-
mittee want to thank all the stu-
dents who aided in manning the
collection posts and gave so gen-
erously to the fund."
Sigma Delta Tau turned in a
special contribution today. Other
organizations are urged to turn
in their money as soon as possible.
"With the special projects plan-
ned by campus groups we hope to
reach our goal of $10,000 this
year," according to Passfield. "The
results of the drive are very en-
couraging and I think that we will
reach our goal this year."

President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven, speaking last night before
the opening banquet of the 30th
annual meeting of the University
Press Club of Michigan, called for
unity between the press and edu-
cators in building confidence in
Calling the press and the teach-
ers "partners in education," Dr.
Ruthven said: "We must recognize
and give meaning to our partner-
ship . .. or admit a lack of interest
in the future of democracy and
little faith in the efforts of a free
press and free schools to build
better men and a better world."
Closer Cooperation
He made two specific proposals
for the achievement of a closer
cooperation which would contrib-
ute to understanding both here
and abroad:
First, that newspapers seek to
promote understanding of the na-
tion's educational system. "At
present," he said, "no paper is ser-
iously endeavoring to explain the
activities of our schools to those
who support them." He declared
that educators could be enlisted to
assist the press in explaining
school aims and achievements to
the mutual benefit of both sides.
Asserting a second line of co-
operation, Dr. Ruthven said:
"Surely we cannot expect the cit-
izens of foreign countries to un-
derstand what we are doing un-
less we know ourselves." To help
those abroad to gain a fuller un-
derstanding, he suggested an ex-
periment under which young peo-
ple from other lands who have the
ambition to become newspaper
men and women could be brought
to the United States to live and
Democracy Meets Challenge
Dr. Ruthven also declared that
traditional American democracy
more than meets the Communist
challenge, in that there could
never be popular consent to a
system which is so completely op-
posite to the things we consider
essential "to make life happy and
keep the human being a decent
human being."
He said, however, that there can
be no ducking the conflict with
Communism, since Russia will
eventually force the issue.
