Republicans Check
President's Request




Rationing and Price-Wage Controls
Not To Be Considered Immediately
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 20-Republican leaders of the Senate to-
'iight virtually consigned to the scrap heap-at least for the time
5eing-President Truman's request for power to bring back rationing
and price-wage controls.
Senator Taft (R.-Ohio) said the Senate's Republican Policy
Committee, which he heads, put the two controversial proposals "at
the end of the list" of anti-inflation measures recommended by the
President and schedtiled for "immediate consideration" by the com-

This means, the Ohioan in-
dicated to reporters, that re-
vived controls and rationing are
out at least until the regular
session of Congress which begins
January 6.
The Republican leaders simul-
taneously liassed the price-curb
ball back to the President, declar-
ing after a meeting that he al-
ready has "most of the powers to
restrain inflation" and calling for
more information about the new
powers he is asking.
They said the ten points of his
anti-inflation program are worded
"in such general terms that they
cannot be clearly understood."
Taft said the Republican quest
for further information about the
President's 10 - point program
would begin tomorrow with Secre-
tary of Agriculture Anderson as
the first administration witness
before Senate-House Economic
Committee, also headed by Taft.
Taft stood firm in his opposi-
tion to new wage-price limita-
tions or rationing but said he
didn't want "to bar them abso-
lutely" from discussion during
the special session. He said prev-
iously that the Joint Economic
Committee wouldn't even dis-
cuss them at this time..
Subsequently two members of
the Joint Committee, Sparkman
(D.-Ala.), and Flanders (R.-Vt.),
said they thought rationing and
the other controls should be con-
sidered, but not necessarily ap-
proved, along with the rest of Mr.
Truman's 10-point anti-iliflation
However, the Senate Banking
Committee, which will have a ma-
jor role in presenting any anti-in-
flation, measures, decided to side-
track price-wage controls and ra-
tioning, at least until Chairman
Tobey (R.-NH), gets more data
on them from Secretary of the
Treasury Snyder in a conference
Tobey, declaring that the Amer-
ican people are "bitter and ugly"
over rising prices, told newsmen
his committee would concentrate
on four other Presidential propo-
sals-continued rent controls, re-
strictions on credit buying, tight-
ening of bank credit and perhaps
an increase in buying margins on
commodity exchanges.
"The paramount situation in the
country is prices and we in Con-
gress ought to have the guts and
the intelligence to find -a way
to meet this problem," Tobey

Final Rally
To Feature
Music, Fire
Marching Band
To Lead Throng
There'll be music, marching,
fun and firelight along State
Street tonight as the student body
turns out for the final pep rally
of the season and the last big
football get-together before New
Year's Day.
A mammoth torchlight parade,
leaving the Union at 7 p.m., will
touch off the rally. Its sponsors,
the Student Legislature Varsity
Committee and the Wolverine
Club, hope a big crowd will turn
out to make it "a real tribute to
a great Michigan team."
Let's Get Out There
The parade promises to be the
noisiest in State Street's history.
The Marching Band, 100 strong,
will lead the throng with the stir-
ring fight songs of olden days.
Cheerleaders will spark the yell-
ing and motorcycle police are ex-
pected to play siren music to add
to the general din.
Once at Ferry Field, the march-
ers will surround a blazing bon-
fire and with songs and yells at-
tempt to win for their team the
favor of the football gods both for
tomorrow game with Ohio State
and "in the near future."
Ways to the Rose Bowl
Ringing oratorf by students and
coaches alike will fan the flames
of the bonfire, and Fred Matthaei,
University alumnus and sports en-
thusiast, will lecture on "99 Ways
to Get to California."
Though the fire dies down, the
temper of the rally promises to re-
main white hot' as the throng
treats the residents of Ste Street
to another liberal d.,se of old-
fashioned Michigan noice with a
furious snake dance back up the
hill, breaking up at the Union.
Although the Wolverine Club
realizes that other attractions may
tempt the student tonight, it hopes
that a rousing crowd will be on
hand at bonfire time.
Another attraction at the rally,
arranged last night, will be the ap-
pearance of some of the team's
senior players, according to Club

The last mile of the drive was
under the glare of floodlights and
the stares of polite but curious
villagers, some even perched in
trees. As the limousine purred up
to the Palmerston gate of Broad-

let go with their cheer.
The little town which was so de-
termined not to disturb the soli-
tude of the honeymooners finally
hit upon a way to extend its offi-
cial welcome. It was done by a
16-year-old girl on a bicycle, Beryl

Plan To Keep
Rent Control
Several of the most influential

met yesterday in the Union to
map plans for a fight to halt re-

Plans were laid for testimony to

for next Monday night in Wash-

mation gathered thus far relevant
to the rent question,
Antonofsky Lashes Out
George Antonofsky, an AVC
spokesman, bitterly lashed out at
any move to decontrol rent here.
He declared that decontrol here is
inconceivable and would result in
wild hysteria with hard pressed
tenants bidding rents upward.
A delegate representing tenants
at Pittsfield Village revealed plans
to testify at the meeting in be-
half of his group.
Jack Geist, AVC chairman, re-
vealed that more than 1,100 stu-
dents have signed two giant post-
cards protesting rent decontrol.
The giant postcard will be pre-
sented to the Rent Advisory Board
at the open hearing.
Shaffer's Plans
Ed Shaffer, MYDA chairman,
revealed that his group plans to
present a chart illustrating the
Ann Arbor housing situation at
the open hearing. Charts graph-
ically portraying other aspects of
the rent and housing situation are
also being prepared by the AVC.
At yesterday's co-ordinating
meeting also were delegates from
Assembly, IRA, the Student Leg-
islature, and interested students.
