PRICE FIVE CENTS

Ask Increase
Of 1.5 Bilion
For Defense
Air Force Called
'Best Insurance'
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13 - The1
President's Air Policy Commission
today asked for a boost in the na-
.' tional defense budget, warning
that America has a scant five
years until other nations catch up
to her in Atomic Research.
A king for a one and a one half
billion dollar hike for the na-
tional defense budget in 1948, the
Commission recommended the
creation of an invincable air
force as the best insurance against
A atomic aggression.
Released. today after more
than five months of preparation,
the Commission's report de-
clared that by Jan. 1, 1953 oth-
er nations will have developed
atomic weapons in quantity and
serious danger of atomic attack
will exist.
In addition to the billion and
one half dollar hike in defense ap-
propriations this year the com-
mission asked for another boost in
1949 to bring the total to $13,200,-
000,000. Currently the national
defense budget stands at $10,098,-
000,000. Virtually all of the in-
crease asked would be earmarked
for the air force.
A three point program was rec-
ommended to rebuild the air force
to top strength. The program
calls for an increase in the num-
ber of air groups from the present
55 to 70 by 1950.
An air national guard is also
asked for with some 3,200 planes
_ In 27 groups plus .,n air force
reserve of 34 groups and equip-
ment.
The final point calls for the
construction and storage of
some 8,000 combat planes by
1952.
Referring to the Navy air arm,
the commission declared that the
present strength is adequate but
called for more modern planes.
'A revamped Commerce depart-
ment was called for by the com-
mission in order to encourage civil
aviation.
Commenting on the report, Presi-
dent Truman said it would help
the government in further devel-
oping long range aviation policy.
According to the Chief Executive
the judgments of the commission
should be studied carefully by
Congress and the people.

Vet Subsistence Mission
Finds Support in Capitol
Snowballed Michigan Congressmen Review
Cost of Living Survey at Special Hearing
EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is a special report from Washington on
the progress of a lobby to increase Government subsistence for student
veterans. The writer is a University student who has led a Michigan dele-
gation to the nation's capital, to carry the campaign for GI pay boosts di-
rectly to Congress.
By GEORGE ANTONOFSKY
(Special to The Daily).
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-Michigan's congressmen took a look at
our statewide cost of living survey for the first time today, and their
reactions seemed to indicate that we've gained new support for our
campaign to boost subsistence.
Most of the lawmakers we spoke to at a special conference this
Smorning told us that we still have
rough sledding ahead, though. It

Conduct Board,
Include Students
Representatives To Be Pikked from
SL, Men's, Women's Judiciary
Board of Regents revision of the membership of the Committee on
Student Conduct to include three students was announced yesterday
by the Student Affairs Committee.
The student representatives are to be elected one each from the
Student Legislature, Women's Judiciary Council and Men's Judi-
ciary Council.
This revision was originally proposed last fall by the Student Leg-
islature, following a wave of campus protest over an administrative
interpretation of the "liquor ban" announced last spring by the

For Students
Legislatire Builds
Course Advice Plan
Literary college experts in the
fields of history, journalism, ro-
mance languages, math and
physics are still needed to com-
plete the new Course-content Stu-
dent Advisory Program, Dave
Dutcher, co-chairman of the Stu-
dent Legislature Cultural and Ed-
ucational Committee announced
yesterday.
Advisors should be juniors or
seniors in the literary college with
at least a "B" average in their
field of concentration and with
wide experience in their fields,
Dutcher said. Members of honor
societies are particularly wanted,
but this is not an absolute quali-
fication, he added.
Advisors' Advantages
Student advisors will receive all
the advantages offered to regular
orientation advisors which include
early registration and free meals
during that week, Dutcher pointed
out.
Interested students should con-
tact Dutcher before Friday.
A meeting for all students par-
ticipating in the program will be
held at 5 p.m. tomorrow in the
Grand Rapids Room of the
League, Dutcher said, adding that
attendance is compulsory.
Experts Give Information
Recently passed by the Execu-
tive Committee of the literary col-
lege, the Legislature initiated plan
provides for student experts rep-
resenting the major fields of con-
centration who will give detailed
course information to students
during registration week in Rm.
25, Angell Hall.
Designed especially to benefit
freshmennand transfer students,
the program will provide detailed
descriptions of courses and will
help to familiarize new students
with the choice of courses avail-
able.
The program will also ease the
load of academic counselors by
giving course information to up-
per-classmen in fields outside of
their own concentrate, Dutcher
explained, adding that all course
advice will be limited to factual
information only. No recommen-
dation of professors will be of-
fered by any student advisor.

George Antonofsky will present
a full report of the Washington
lobby at AVC's final meeting of
the semester at 7:30 p.m. today in
the Union.
Consensus has it, though, that
once the Bill comes out of com-
mittee, few Congressmen would be
willing to go on record against it.
(The Rogers Bill calls for GI
pay boosts to $100 for single vet-
erans and $125 for married stu-
dents.)
Expert Dodging
We next got to see House Ma-
jority Leader Charles Halleck, and
presented our case to him. He was
very adroit and we were never
quite ableto find out where he
stood on the question.
The 20-member Michigan dele-
gation was extremely disappointed
to read that the President was op-
posed to further increases in vet-
erans' benefits. We feel that we're
not actually seeking increased
benefits, but are only trying to
make it possible for us to continue
the education we were promised in
the original GI Bill.
Survey Indicate Exodus
Our cost-of-living survey point-
ed to a mass exodus from the col-
leges and universities if the Gov-
ernment doesn't help match allot-
ments to increased living costs.
We'ventried to meet with the
President for the past two days
but it's been in vain. This after-
noon though our chances seemed
to brighten somewhat, and it now
seems likely that we will get to see

Wallace Backs
Subsistence
Raise for Vets
(Special to The Daily)
"WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-Henry
A. Wallace today added his sup-
port to Operation Subsistence, de-
claring that the "fight for ade-
quate subsistence is among the
most pressing essentials for gen-
uine national defense."
In a sharply-worded attack on
the "warmindedness" of the Ad-
ministration and Congress, Wal-
lace, third-party candidate for
president, declared, "We have bil-
lions for war at a time when hun-
dreds of thousands of veterans
are being forced to leave school
because of inadequate subsistence
allowance."
Wallace's remarks were in a
telegram, addressed to the Opera-
tion Subsistence lobby in Wash-
ington. The lobby seeks GI Bill
boosts to $100 for single veterans
and $125 for married ex-GIs.
"We are urged to approve mili-
tary training for the younger
brothers of men and women who
have served their country and
whose needs are now forgotten,"
the former vice-president said.
"Nothing better dramatizes the
ugly warmindedness now domi-
nating the Administration and
Congress than the accent placed
on appropriations for armed forces
and proposals for compulsory mil-
itary training," he added.

U' Graduate Wins
Executive Position
J. R. McWilliams, '19E has been
named executive vice president of
the Carter Oil Company of Tulsa,
Oklahoma.
McWilliams has been Carter's
vice president in charge of produc-
tion since 1945 after a year's leave
of absence during which he served
as director of the production di-
vision of the Petroleum Adminis-
tration for War.
A native of Missouri, McWil-
liams graduate dfrom the Uni-
versity as a petroleum engineer
in 1919 and began a long career
in the oil industry.

Ann Arbor's 30,000 can contribu-
tion to the Motor Friendship Car-
avan, Leo Kelly, chairman of the
Junior Chamber of Commerce,
said yesterday.
The JCC was responsible for the
collection of the food, along with
the "M" Club, which was on hand
at the fairgrounds yesterday when
the food was assembled for ship-
ment to Detroit. From Detroit,
the consignment will proceed to
New York, and then to hungry
countries of Europe, principally
France.
Large Contribution
Kelly stated that the size of
Ann Arbor's contribution to the
Caravan, compared to the rest of
the nation, was very large.
The JO'C chairman expressed
surprise at the variety of food do-
nated. Canned bacon, salmon and
tuna were among the contribu-
tions. "'Those people will certainly
eat well," he said. "I even found
a can of caviar in the collection."
"Baby Chowder"
The "M" Club was also sur-
prised. On looking over the food,
Bob Chappuis examined a small
can, saying, "Hmm. Baby chow-
der." Boxes of pudding were nu-
merous, but there were no in-
structions for preparation which
the French people could under-
stand if they knew no English.
Large consignments of food
were donated by companies, while
the railroads are bearing the ex-
penses of shipment. The people of
Ann Arbor itself, Kelly said, were
generous, but did not approve of
the idea that food which couldn't
be shipped would be donated to
the poor of the city.
ERP Backed
By Anderson
WASHINGTON, Jan. 13-()-
Secretary of Agriculture Anderson
said flatly today that proposed
food shipments to Europe under
the "Marshall Plan" have nothing
to do with the Administration's
bid for standby power to put meat
and other food under rationing
and price control.
Anderson's statement, made as
the Senate Foreign Relations
Committee questioned him about
the effect of foreign aid on the
nation's larder, directly contrdict-
ed a view often expressed by op-
ponents of the four-year Euro-
pean Recovery Program.
Anderson told the senators that
no beef, pork or lamb would be
sent abroad during the first two
years of the program.

"The Press: What and Whose Is
It?" will be the subject of a lec-
ture by James S. Pope, managing
editor of the Louisville Courier-
Journal, to be given at 8 p.m., to-

Rosenwald Foundation, he trav-
eled extensively in France, Eng-
land and Scotland and wrote a se-
ries of articles on Western Europe,

ish government and the British
press.
In 1941, he toured Canada and
wrote a series of articles on Can-
ada's war effort. At the invitation
of the Indian Army, he flew to In-
dia in 1945 to write a series on the
military affairs. His articles, how-
ever, dealt more with the coming
showdown in Indian-British poli-
tics.

fice of Censorship, handling press
problems. He acted as program
manager of the 1947 meeting in

Hits Proposed
Tax Reduction
Disagrees with Plan
To Combat Inflation.
By RUSS CLANAHAN
A reduction in taxes at the pres-
fnt time "would make for even
more inflation, rather than less,"
Prof. William Palmer, of the eco-
nomics department, said yester-
day, commenting on a proposal
Sunday by 53 economists to com-
bat inflation by lowering taxes
and revising the tax system.
Pointing out that lower taxes
would mean even more dollars
would then enter an already
money-flooded market, Prot
Palmer emphasized that high cor-
porate taxes "would be a good
thing under the present inflation-
ary situation" to cut down the de-
mand for goods by corporations.
Revi Tax System
Prof. Palmer agreedhwith the
conomists' view that the tax sys-
em should be revised, but said
hat "the overhauling of the sys-
,m should mean a restating of
the forms of taxation, rather than
the amount."
Prof. Palmer pointed out that
the 53 economists making the pro-
oosal represent the conservative
economic attitude, which holds
hat the seemingly contradictory
deas of tax reduction and debt
zayments could both be accom-
lished through the slashing of
overnment spending.
Relief Plan Not Excessive'
"Whether present expenditures
ire excessive in view of the world
situation depends on the individ-
al viewpoint," he said. He added
hat, to him, the "proposed $6,-
00,000,000 for European relief
lidn't seem excessive against the
ackground of a $200,000,000,000
national income."
Although agreeing that the
conomists' suggestion to cut out
;overnment subsidies is sound,
?rof. Palmer doubted that many
ubsidies are actually being paid,
i view of the current high level of
:rices.
