State Supreme Court today.
The court, in a six to two de-
cision, declared that the State still
owed the public schools of Mich-
That was the sum which the
lawmakers last spring took out of
the school aid appropriation man-
dated by the diversion amendment
and gave to four state educational
programs on the pretext that the
state was all one school district.
The court, in a majority opin-
land W. arr, held the Lgislature
had no right to create such a
single state-wide school district.
Meanwhile State Treasurer D.
Hale Brake said the State may
have to raise $70 million in new
taxes by 1950 because of the sales
tax diversion amendment if there
is a normal reduction in sales tax
Brake termed the amendment,
which each year gives school dis-

Since the Interim Committee
actually amounts to a committee
of the whole, it can, by a few flips
of the wrist, become a special ses-

It could work this way:

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3-(P)-
The State Department's "Voice of
America" radio tonight beamed
overseas in 23 languages a report
that Russianis have started whole-
sale runs on banks and stores in
Moscow and other Soviet cities be-
cause of fear the ruble is losing
The report was attributed to
travelers just returned from Rus-
sia and was not immediately con-
firedbyMoscow news dispatches
Crowds anxious to exchange the
Soviet currency for any durable
goods were besieging shops last
week to buy dry goods jewelry',
rare books or any other physical
goods, the report said.

The idea is to preserve the ut-
most general participation in UN
activities and not to regularize
the situation in which the West-
ern and Eastern blocs work
against each other.
It is clear now that, while the
Russians are boycotting the Lit-
tle Assembly, the Korean and the
Balkan commissions, and while
they do not participate in the
work of the trusteeship council or
of six other specialized UN agen-
cies, they definitely have no in-
tention of pulling out of UN.
The Little Assembly is going to
be an unequalled forum for prop-
aganda. The U. S. idea in setting
it up was to keep a constant light
on various world issues and to fo-
cus the force of its opinions on
the veto-hampered Security Coun-
cil. But the U. S. also is still try-
ing to keep the door open at all
times for any change in Russian

side the Assembly chamber, the

tionist tactics which are holding
