Another bloody spot was Niza-

To 4.8Billion
House Expected To
OK Senate Revision
WASHINGTON, March 22-(P)
-The Senate voted for a $4,800,-
000,000 income tax cut today with
some talk of taking the money
back again if the defense forces
need it.
A top-heavy vote of 78 to 11 sent
the measure to the House with
prospects that the House will agree
to Senate changes Wednesday and
send the measure on to Persident
A veto such as the Presi-
dent twice exercised successfully
against tax cuts last year is confi-
dently expected.
The House has voted its own
$6,500,000,000 tax cut. The plan
to accept the Senate's lower figure
is backed by Republican leaders
largely for the purpose of picking
up recruits to override a veto. -
Late Recruit
Senator Lucas (Dem., Ill.), as-
sistant Democratic leader, was a
late recruit to the tax cutting
forces. As the hour for the vote
approached he said he would vote
for the bill but would not hesitate
to vote rates back up if the inter-
national situation warrants it.
Senator Langer (Rep., N.D.), a
tax cut opponent last year, also
went along. He said he did it re-
luctantly, because he didn't want
the present administration to have
any more money to spend.f
'Tax Eaters'
"I am satisfied that the moret
money we give this bunch of tax
eaters, the more they'll use," he
. Lucas' comments emphasized an1
earlier statement by Senator
Morse (Rep., Ore.), another late
comer to the tax cutting forces.
Morse told the Senate that if big-i
ger military spending becomest
necessary the rates may have to7
go back up.

TORNADO WRECKS PLANES-The wreckage of two C-54 transports lies strewn about Tinker air-

injured, none seriously, by flying glass.

Veteran's Grade Superiority
Blasted by Indiana 'U' Official

The myth of student-veteran's
grade superiority hasapparently
been exploded by an Indiana Uni-
versity administrator.
In fact the Indiana official says
that non-veteran students get bet-
ter grades than do veterans in the
same age brackets.
Writing in the weekly educa-
tional magazine School and Socie-
ty, Robert H. Shaffer presents
evidence which seems to disprove
the widely-held contention that
student-veterans excel scholastic-
His data shows that age, not
military service, is responsible for
better grades netted by student-
veterans. According to the article
non-veterans in the same age
bracket as the veteran students
actually hold an edge in grades.
Shaffer says the apparent su-
periority of veterans has been
growing less during the last few
semesters at Indiana. He decided
to make a comparison of grades
Claim UMT',
Draft Essential
WASHINGTON, March 22-(A')
-A large majority of the Senate
,armed services committee was re-
ported convinced today that quick
adoption of both universal mili-
tary training and a temporary
draft is a national necessity.
Chairman Gurney (Rep., S.D.)
made the estimate of sentiment
after a closed-door session of ten
committeemen with Secretary of

between the two groups, holding
the age constant.
Compiling data based on the ex-
perience of nearly 16 thousand
male students, Shaffer found that
in every case non-veterans' grades
exceeded veterans of the same age
group. He implies that older stu-
dents make better grades than
younger students as a group, with
veteran status having little bearing
on the scholastic results.

MYDA :Denied
By University
President Alexander G. Ruth-
ven yesterday announced the Uni-
versity's refusal to reinstate
MYDA as an officially recognized
student organization.
Dr. Ruthven's statement said:
"The request for reinstatement
of the organization known as
Michigan Youth for Democratic
Action has been considered. Since
no information has been obtained
which would indicate that the
character of the organization is
different than it was to be at the
time recognition was withdrawn,
April 22, 1947, the request for re-
instatement is denied."
When banned last spring,
MYDA was a member of the
American Youth for Democracy,
an organization then under inves-
tigation by the House Un-Ameri-
can Activities Committee, and
which has since been labeled by
Attorney General Tom Clark "a
subversive group." MYDA is still
affiliated with the AYD.
President Ruthven declined to
elaborate his statement. Ed Shaf-
fer, MYDA president, told a Daily
reporter that although MYDA has
no definite plan of action as yet
"we will still continue our bid for
official recognition."
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department expressed re-
gret over the University's denial of
re-instatement to MYDA.
"I resent MYDA strongly, and
yet it is tactics like the Commu-
nists to prevent organizations from
meeting publicly. We should not
imitate them," he said. "The
Communists do not believe in
freedom, but we do. We should
show our belief by our actions," he

Skirmish o
Rival Police
Wounds One
Yugoslav Counter
Plan Rejected by U.S.
By The Associated Press
ROME, March 22-The Ameri-
can Military Government in Tri-
este announced tonight that shots
had been exchanged at the tense
border separating the Yugoslav
from the U.S.-British zones of
the Trieste Free Territory.
The incident involved police pa-
trols in the two zones. One police-
man was wounded. He was a mem-
ber of the party on the British-
American side of the line.
Announcement of the outbreak
came as the Italian government
accepted with satisfaction the
Western Powers' proposal to re-
turn the entire 400-square mile
free territory at the head of the
Adiatic to Italy.
'Exchange Considered
Meanwhile, Yugoslavia's Fdr-
eign Minister said his government
is willing to consider giving the
City of Trieste itself to Italy pro-
vided Yugoslavia gets Goizia, an

They made it plain the Ameri-
can government would reject the
Yugoslav offer.
One key Washington official
pointed out Simic was trying to
trade something he does not have
-(Trieste) - for something -
(Gorizia)-which now is an in-
tegral part of Italy.
(The Simic offer is viewed by
these officials as a belated Yugo-
slav attempt to take their Italian
Communist friends off a hott spot.
Could Not Accept
(Press Officer Michael McDer-
mott said the State Department
had received nothing from Yugo-
slavia on the Trieste question and
knows nothing officially of Sem-
ic's statement.)
Such an exchange was proposed
before the Italian peace treaty was
signed. Premier Alcide De Gas-
peri said Sunday in a political
speech, possibly anticipating a re-
newal of the offer, that "We could
not accept Trieste for Goizia."
De Gasperi and Foreign Minis-
ter Carlo Sforza were traveling to-
night and were unavailable fox
comment on the Yugoslav state-
ment. Foreign Ministry officialUj
declined to comment.
The fate of Trieste has become
an issue in Italy's crucial parlia-
mentary election of April 18--an
election being fought out on the
issue of Communism.
'Stay off Grass'
Lawn To Be Seeded
I Next Few Weeks
Buildings and Grounds Depart
ment officials have issued their
annual plea for students to re-

Pointing out that the winter-
ravaged lawn has been softened
by spring rains, officials requested
that students cooperate in helping
restore the campus grounds.
During the next few weeks, the

Buildings and Grounds Depart-
ment will undertake the task of
seeding the campus. Material
shortages make it impossible to
fence off all eroded sections, ac-
cording to officials, who asked
students to stay on campus walks.

with almost half of the campus
