For Invasion
Of Holy Land
War by Saturday
Reported Certain
JERUSALEM, April 26-(P)-
The regular armies of Trans-Jor-
dan, Syria, Lebanon and Egypt
will launch an invasion of Pal-
estine by Saturday, advices reach-
ing Jerusalem tonight said.
A dispatch from Amman, capi-
tal of Trans-Jordan, said King
Abdullah personally will take the
field against the Jews at the head
of the armies of Trans-Jordan,
Syria and Lebanon.
Egyptian Army
Moving with him will be Egyp-
tian army units which will cross
the Holy Land's southern frontier
in a coordinated action. The
Egyptian command will be close-
ly allied to Abdullah, it was said.
Arab informants in Cairo said
Iraq and Saudi Arabia also have
decided to throw their regular
military forces into the fight to
prevent the Jews from establish-
ing a state of their own in the
Holy Land.
Arab leaders reportedly are
alarmed by the extent of recent
1 Jewish military successes. Arab
peoples in the Middle East have
been inflamed by the arrival of
Arab refugees from Palestine.
Mandate Violation
An invasion of the Holy Land
by regtgar army troops would
defy the British mandate 'which
is not scheduled to end until May
15 and the United Nations Se-
curity Council which has or-
dered a truce in Palestine.
The Cairo accounts said King
Abdullah already has dispatched
reinforcements of Trans-Jordan's
Arab Legion to Palestine.

Wallace Visit
Planned Here
An attempt to bring Henry
Wallace to Ann Arbor will be

made, it was decided at last
night's meeting of the campus
Wallace Progressives.
Wallace is already slated to
speak at Detroit's Olympia Sta-
dium on the evening of May 13,
and it is thought that he may be
persuaded to talk here earlier in
the same day.
A joint report issued by the
town and campus chapters of the
Wallace Progressives disclosed
that over 1,500 signatures have
been obtained on petitions to put
Wallace on the Michigan ballot.

tensive campaigning for Wallace

Union Meeting Fails To
Recruit Required Quorum

Despite last minute efforts by
some members to round up the re-
quired quorum, only 100 students
attended the Union's constitu-
tional amendment meeting last
night-one-fourth of the number
necessary to bring action on any
of the proposals.
A brief but stormy discussion of
Union financial policies followed

Hits 'Wallace Peace,'
Aims Barb at Stalin
WASHINGTON, April 26 - (AP)
-Senator Vandenberg (Rep.,
Mich.) said tonight he wants to
tell Premier Stalin of Russia that
"underlying everything else we
shall not surrender to Commu-
nist conspiracies in the United
Vandenberg, Chairman of the
Senate Foreign Relations Com-
mittee, made an unexpected
speech at a Michigan congres-
sional dinner.
His comments followed a pro-
posal by Senator Ferguson (Rep.,
Mich.) that a test case be brought
to determine the legality of the
Communist Party in America.
"We are suicidal fools if we do
not root any treason at home
which may dream of being world
revolution to the United States,"
Vandenberg said.
The United States he added
cannot accept a "Munich peace"
because appearors "merely preci-
pitate the very disasters from
which they seek to flee."
While reiterating the nation's
desire for peace, andenberg said
"We are realists. We do not pro-
pose to be isolated in a world that
has been Communized by force...
With emphasis, he also said,
"It cannot be a Wallace peace be-
cause the communist fraternity
sooner or later produces but one
kind of fraternity-the kind
Jonah enjoyed when he was swal-
lowed by the whale."
Henry A. Wallace, third party
candidate for President, has
sharply criticized the bi-partisan
foreign policy of which Vanden-
berg is a chief spokesman.

On Zarichny
Votes To Proceed
AgainstMSC Senior
LANSING, April 26-(P)-The
Senate Republican majority
agreed in caucus tonight to pro-
ceed against James Zarichny,
Michigan State College senior
from Flint who defied the Senate
Callahan Committee on Un-Amer-
ican Activities.
Zarichny refused to tell the
committee whether or not he was
a Communist.
After hearing a long argument
by Senator Mathew Callahan
(Rep., Detroit), Committee chair-
man, the caucus, ordered a war-
rant issued to bring Zarichny be-
fore the bar of the Senate tomor-
row or Wednesday.

the necessary quorum o 400 failed
to show up.
Taproom Charges
"There is no reason why the
Union taproom cannot charge
prices up to 25 per cent less than
they do; they cart in food by the
carload-wholesale--so they can
afford to charge wholesale prices,"
said one student.
"Then," replied General Man--
ager Frank C. Kuenzel, "we have
a job for you. If you think you
could reduce Union prices 25 per
cent, we'll hire you. Nobody else
could do it."
Explaining the Union's finan-
cial policies, Prof. Chester . Wis-
ler, Financial Secretary, said "Cer-
tain units of the Union must be
operated at a profit to compen-
sate for losses of many of the
other dep.artments, some of
which do not take in any money at
Prof. Wisler said that a finan-
cial report would be published
soon, the first in the history of
the Union.
"Besides," Prof. Wisler contin-
ued, "the Union is planning a
three million dollar addition.
Where do you propose that we get
the money? We get no funds from
the state."
Commenting on the outcome of
the meeting, Gene Sikorovsky,
Union president, said: "The Un-
ion's special meeting Monday
night showed very clearly that the
vast majority of Union members
on campus were either satisfied
with the present situation of the

War Danger
Is Minimized
By Forrestal
WASHINGTON, April 26-(')
Secretary of Defense Forrestal
said today that he doesn't think
war is imminent. If it were, he
said, he'd be asking $25,000,000,-
000 from Congress instead of $3,-
The head of the. nation's de-
fense establishment found himself
in the odd position of arguing
against giving the military more
funds than the lower figure.
He borrowed an old figure of
speech on extreme preparedness:
"If you leave it to the military,
they'll fortify the moon."
Forrestal testified before the
Senate Appropriations Committee
in support of a program to in-
crease the air force from 50 to
66 groups. The House has voted
for a 70-group force.
He added, however, that the
smaller force, balanced with Army
and Navy power, is designed to get
"the bestamilitary results if our
budget is to be limited."
Senator O'Daniel (Dem., Tex.)
said the people are concerned
about the huge public debt. He
said they are even more con-
cerned over statements by mili-
tary figures that "we are getting
closer to war."
Forrestal replied that he has
said several times he does not be-
lieve war is imminent, but that we
should be prepared.
Gen. Omar Bradley, Army chief
of Staff, said in confidential tes-
timony which was made public
Sunday that the chance of war
with Russia has increased since
the first of the year.

Governor Is Senti
$9,750,000 Bill
The House of Representatives
passed and sent to Governor Sig-
ler for action tonight a bill ap-
propriating $9,750,000 to the Uni-
versity for operating expenses.
The House accepted without
change the same bill that passed
the Senate April 15 slashing ap-
proximately three quarters of a
million dollars from the Univer-
sity's original request for $10,500,-
000 operating expenses.
Increased Costs
Vice-President Marvin H. Nie-
huss last night ponted out that
this appropriation was still $1,-
080,000 more than was granted to
the University last year. This
raise was designed to cover in-
creased costs.
Niehuss declared he was un-
able to predict just where in the
University's budget, cuts would be
made to absorb the three quarters
of a million dollar slash. "The cuts
might come in repairs, equipment
replacement, or even in salaries,
but the final decision is up to the
budget committee," he said.
Budget Session
The Daily learned that the Uni-
versity budget committee has been
in almost continuous session dur-
ing the last week in an attempt
to complete revision of the budget
in time to present it to this Fri-
day's meeting of the Board of Re-
The University's $9,750,000 con-
struction completion bill, which
has already cleared the Senate,

ed as the legislature hopes to ad-
journ before week's end.

tennis program. The twenty-five
cent hourly rate for those who do
not wish to pay by the semester
has been officially amended and
the twenty-five cents will now be
good for play as long as the court
is not in demand.
The third change will allow
mixed play on the Ferry Field
courts. Escorted women will be
permitted to use the courts at
any time, but they can only par-J
ticipate in mixed play. Two wom-
en may not play singles, nor four
play doubles.
As a result of this, men will be
required to follow the same rules
for attire that are enforced on
the golf course. Men will have to
wear shirts at all times.
The Board Committee estab-
lished the new plan without a
complete financial report on the
old system. But figures from last
summer showed that under the
twenty-five cent per hour system
