Palestine Invasion Report
Denied byCairo Officials
JERUSALEM, April 27-(A')-An Arab source said troops of an
Egyptian armored division invaded Palestine today in a dawn
crossing of the southern frontier, but the report was denied by
Egyptian officials in Cairo.
Officials in Cairo said no regular armed forces had entered the
Holy Land. Some Egyptians close to the army command said an
invasion had occurred with the troops involved probably going as

Coops Smooth
Boons, Busts
Says Voorhis
Cooperatives organized on a
solid basis aire potent influences
in smoothing out violent booms
and depressions and increasing
competition with private compan-
ies, Jerry Voorhis, executive sec-
retary of the Cooperative League
of the U. S., said last night.
Speaking to a meeting of the
Economics Club, the former Con-
gressman emphasized that co-ops
can reduce depression because
their owner-consumers continue
to produce and consume at a high
"This means that private pro-
ducers are afraid to cut down op-
erations for fear of losing their
markets, production continues
nirmal, and depression is avoid-
ed,"' he explained.
Voorhis asserted that "if a suf-
ficient bloc of co-op buying power
can be developed, a real price
competition can be set up." He
cited the example of farmers' fer-
tilizer cooperative, in which he
pointed out the lower co-op prices
have forced a lower price on all
private producers.
Answering charges that large
co-ops often become monopolistic,
Voorhis distinguished between
marketing and sonsumers co-ops.
He said that, in cases where a
marketing co-op with a limited
membership tried to dictate
prices, the anti-trust laws apply
as with a corporation.
"In a consumers co-op," he de-
clared, "the term monopoly is a
misnomer because anyone may
join to get its benefits."
Voorhis also spoke yesterday to
a marketing class of the business
administration school on current
trends of co-ops and their spread

Over Hearing
Zarien y Case
Legality in Doubt
LANSING, April 27-(P)-The
State Senate was fogbound in
confusion today trying to prose-
cute a Michigan State College stu-
dent on a charge of contempt of
the Senate.
Tackling its first contempt case
in its history, the Senate made
these moves:
At noon the chamber voted to
arrest James Zarichny of Flint,
24-year-old mathematics senior at
MSC, because he refused to tell
the Callahan Committee on Un-
American Activities whether he
was a Communist.
At 2:30 p.m., while the Senate

into secret executive session, os-
tensibly to consider confirmation
of gubernatorial nominations. But,
in violation of a constitutional
ban on secret meetings except for
confirmations, the Chamber de-
bated Zarichny's case for more
than an hour.
Then the Chamber, obviously
at odds, appointed a three-man
committee to work out procedures
for trying Zarichny, and to "see

U.S. Cooperation Sole Clue
To Puerto Rican Problems


Puerto Rico can not solve her
economic problems until her re-

reach a satisfactory basis, Prof.
Juan'D. Curet of the University of
Puerto Rico said last night.
Puerto Ricans have suggested
dominion status, statehood and
independence, but so far the U. S.
Congress has turned down all
suggestions, Prof. Curet added.
Speaking under the auspices of

Farmer's crops were safely in
the ground and there were few
sprouts high enough to feel the
icy blasts, according to Harold
S. Osler, County Agricultural
Agent. However, some greenhouse
windows caved in under the pelt-

Small Faculty Vote Backs Stassen
Harold E. Stassen topped all presidential candidates with 1,515
preference votes of a total 5,373, in The Daily's straw election yester-
Tabulations of only the students' choice for president were avail-
able last night. Totals on the candidates "most likely to be elected
next President," indicated in the second column of the ballot, will be
printed in tomorrow's Daily.
Second choice went to Sen. Arthur H. Vandenberg with 1,172
votes. Stassen, who has led similar straw votes at the University of
Wisconsin and at Northwestern University, thus nosed out the Michi-

can, feel that they can exert more
influence in the island if it re-
mains U. S. possession.
Puerto Rico, with her one-crop
sugar economy was termed "poor
by nature" by Prof. Curet. People
in rural areas live barely at sub-
sistence levels, he said. Foreign
interests own over 90 per cent of
good land, Prof. Curet estimated.
A liberal party, which has held
sway over the island since 1940
has set up plans to ease the eco-
nomic situation, he said. "Better
land distribution, more varied
crop production and local owner-
ship of land are among the meas-
ures desired."
