Vote in Key Spots
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17-()--
The United States formally agreed
tonight to pay between 80 and 90
per cent of the cost of running
the combined British-American
zones of Germany.
Ending nine weeks of discus-
sions with the British, Under-Sec-
retary of State Lovett signed a
new financial accord which com-
mits the American Government
to contribute about $400,000,000
more annually, raising the total
American cost to about $800,000,-
000 yearly in 1948.
Britain's Part
In return the British govern-
ment gave a controlling voice to
the United States in two of the
key economic agencies guiding
economic activity in the merged
Western zones. These are they
Joint Export-Import Agency and
the Joint Foreign Exchange Agen-
cy.
Britain's 1948 contribution
toward operating the two zones
was estimated in a summary to
be about $121,000,000, all in ster-
ling. The United States will bear
all the dollar expenses involved.
The exact percentages which
Britain and the United States will
bear could not be stated immedi-
ately because the agreement is
kretroactive to November of this
year.
LCamp Drive
Gains $110
From Review
Receipts from last night's
Christmas Review added $109.50 to
the Fresh Air Camp Drive, chair-
man George Holland announced.
Total contributions and pledges
to the drive approached the $1,000
mark as Phi Sigma Kappa and
Sigma Delta Tau each announced
a contribution of $40.
At the same time it was an-
nounced that the West Quad
Council had collected $276.61 thus
far with many of its houses still
to be heard from.
Independent women's groups
which have already contributed in
the campaign include Osterweil
Cooperative House, Mary Markley
House, and Mosher and Jordan
Halls, according to Irma Eichorn,
Assembly president. All soliciting
is being done directly by the co-
operating organizations. The en-
tire proceeds will be used to send
underprivileged boys to the Uni-
versity camp this summer.
!iGroups wishing to contribute
may make out checks payable to
the University of Michigan Fresh
Air Camp, and bring them to Miss
Ethel McCormick in the Social
Director's Office in the League.
PCA Splits on
Wallace Issue
NEW YORK, Dec. 17-(RP)-A
Henry Wallace - for - President
boom on an Independent ticket
resulted tonight in a wide open

rift in the top echelons of the
Progressive Citizens of America,
launchers of a third party move-
mv-ment.
First effect of the PCA an-
nouncement urging the former
vice-president to run was the res-
ignation as PCA co-chairman of
Dr. Frank Kingdon, candidate for
the New Jersey Democratic sen-
atorial nomination, who said it
would be "folly -to attempt an in-
dependent campaign."
This was followed today, how-
ever, by support of the move-
ment from Illinois leaders of the
PCA.
But tonight in San Francisco,
Bartley C. Crum, attorney and
a National vice-chairman of the
PCA since its inception, resigned
effective immediately, asserting:
"I am not for Wallace for Pres-
ident."
"I am for Wallace, and we can
win with him in California and
Oregon."

Army Budget Cut
By Fire Associated Press
s WASHINGTON, Dec. 17-The
RIouse passed by voice vote and
sent to the Senate late today an
appropriations bill sashing the
$597,000,000 emergency foreign
aid program by $88,000,000.
The bill also cut the amount
sked by the Army for occupation
hosts in Germany, Japan and Ko-
rea from $490,000,000 to $230,000,-
000.
House action came on the same
day that President Truman signed,
without ceremony, a bill author-
izing up to $597,000,000 in supplies
to help France, Italy, Austria and
China through the winter.
Committee Decision Upheld
The House Appropriations Com-
mittee, bringing in a bill to pro-
vide the actual funds, recommend-
ed the cuts and eliminated China
from the program, however, and
the House in today's vote upheld
the committee's decision.
The Senate still may restore all
or part of the cuts voted by the
House and may seek to get China
back into the program.
In addition, House Appropria-
tions Committee members indi-
cated that the Army will get more
money for occupation if a "satis-
factory" agreement is reached
with Great Britain on operation
of the Anglo-American zone of
Germany. (An agreement was
signed in Washington today but
there was no immediate indication
whether it would satisfy the com-
mittee.)
Other Expenditures
The funds voted today were part
of a $773,202,000 bill which also
appropriated funds for congress-
men's mileage allowances and
other routine government expen-
ditures.
Informed, that the bill had been
passed by the House, Chairman
Bridges (Rep., N.H.) said he would
try to get the Senate Appropria-
tions Committee, which he heads,
to meet tomorrow afternoon to
vote on the amount of aid it fa-
vors.
Bridges told reporters that per-
sonally he favors including funds
for China in the aid program but
has not decided what can be done
about it by his committee.
Prompt aid to China was urged
in testimony before Bridges' com-
mittee earlier in the day by Wil-
liam C. Bullitt, former U.S. Am-
bassador to Russia, and Lt. Gen.
Albert C. Wedemeyer, author of
a long-secret report to Mr. Tru-
man on Chinese conditions.
Knutson Offers
New Tax Slash
WASHINGTON, Dec. 17 - (P)
-A $5,300,000,000 or more income
tax-slashing measure will be in-
troduced in the House tomorrow
by Rep. Knutson (Rep., Minn.),
setting off a new clash between
Republicans and the White House
that may echo in the 1948 presi-
dential campaign.
It will propose that 6,000,000 low
income persons be taken from the
tax rolls, and that reductions be
given to the other 42,500,000 tax-
payers.-

AVC Donates
Civil Liberty
Pamphlets
AVC's campus chapter took ac-
tion last night to provide what
was termed "sorely needed educa-
tion on the concept of basic
rights."
Ten bound copies of the Presi-
dent's Report on Civil Liberties
were donated to the University
Library and five more to the Ann
Arbor Public Library. Jack Geist,
chairman of the chapter, ex-
plained the move in terms of the
Eisler incident of last Monday.
"The students of this Univer-
sity proved by their action Mon-
day that they have little concept
of what America's civil liberties
are and why they need to be pro-
tected," he said.
Geist urged all students, "espe-
cially those who were part of the
mob Monday," to take advantage
of their opportunity to read the
report.
The AVC chapter, at its meet-
ing last night, also voted support
to the National AVC's condemna-
tion of Universal Military Train-
ing. "In this way of ultra-sci-
entific warfare, universal train-
ing would be of little avail, is
wholly unnecessary, and would be
an infringement on liberties," the
chapter agreed.

Ann Arbor police, called quickly

flames blowing across Monroe St.
in what looked like an electric
fire from telephone wires.
It turned out that the "mallum"
fires, kept burning all night to
keep the mortar in the new struc-
ture from freezing, had spread to
the large canvas covering the
building, and only a large area of
canvas was on fire.
Firemen arrived promptly with
three trucks and full equipment,
