Purdue, 'M'
Split Pair of
Ball Games
Wolverines Hit by
kfirst Big 9 Loss
The weather turned chilly yes-
terday but it was no colder than
the frigid-playing of the Michigan
nine in the second game of the
doubleheader with Purdue's Boil-
ermakers at Ferry Field.
The Wolverines split the twin
bill, winning the first, 4-0, behind
superb three hit pitching by Art
Dole, Michigan's first four game
winner. They lost the second, 5-3
in one of the sloppiest games of
the season, for its first Confer-
ence defeat.
Bill Taft, who earned a start-
er's post last week with a 3-2
win over Ohio State, went the
route in the nightcap and suf-
fered his first defeat of the sea-
Mel Henson tossed the seconc
game for Purdue and racked ur
ten strikeouts to Taft's four. The
Boilermaker right-hander yield-
ed five hits to the title-seekin
Wolverines, while his teammate:

the win.
Bob Hartman, who went the
distance for Purdue in the open-
er, was tagged for 12 safeties,
one of them a second inning
home run by Dom Tomasi with

Michigan scored again in the

nical discussions concerning prob-
lems in exchanging students.

Flanders Says UMT
Would 'Bankrupt' UN
Selective Service is necessary for American security, but adoption
of Universal Military Training would mean that the United Nations is
bankrupt, Sen. Ralph A. Flanders (R. Vt.) said in an interview here
Senator Flanders also said he would support the seventy group
air force which is now being considered in Congress.
Returning to the subject of UMT, Senator Flanders declared that
its passage would demonstrate that we have no way to enforce peace

but through armed force.

Sen. Flanders spoke on "Infla-
Ion as a Production Problem,"
ceynoting an all-day Alumni Con-
He called for self-discipline on
'he part of both organized labor
ind business management to end
"Both must understand that we
:onsume and enjoy only what we
roduce, and that there is no use
trying to raise the standard of

kits, if in the process, we do not
roduce more," he said.
"This is the answer to inflation
which neither higher wages nor
'igher prices can give us. Increas-
Ad production comes from better
management by business, more
faithful work by wage earners,
aew products more economically
,made, new labor-saving equip-
rtrent, and a longer work week
without overtime pay," Sen.
Flanders commented.
"Profits amount to about 13 per
ent of labor cost," he explained.
"The wage increases now being
asked, if obtained by all workers,
.vould go beyond this 13 per cent
mnaximum. We cannot do away
with profits altogether without
,topping the machinery of em-
ployment and production."
"We must accept the fact that
decisions of labor and industry as
to wages, prices and profits are
no longer private matters. They
are public matters and must be
determined with the public in-
terest as a major element in the
decision, he said.
Vets Overpaid,

igan veterans-24,000 of them-
owe an over-generous Uncle Sam
$2,746,770, the Veterans Adminis-
tration said today.
That has been the amount
overpaid the veterans, most of
them college or on-the-job stu-
dents, in subsistence allotments,
according to the VA.
The VA announced it mailed
notices in March to 3,067 vet-
erans, telling them they must re-

Most of the errors were made
because veterans failed to notify
the VA of changes in status, offi-

mit that the UN is bankrupt,
although it soon will be unless
the course of international poli-
tics improves," he said. Now is
not the time to say so, he added.
The Senator termed the threat-
ened rail strike "completely un-
justified." It is the most direct
possible approach to raising the
cost of living," he declared.
If the workers succeed in gain-
ing a wage raise, it will be sus-
tained by higher prices which will
come from the people, Senator
Flanders declared.
Perhaps rail workers' wages
are not as high as they should
be, Sienator Flanders said, but

When asked how he felt about
the appointment of David Lilien-
thal as chairman of the Atomic
Energy Commission for five years,
Senator Flanders said he would
vote to confirm the appointment,
but would prefer to have longer
terms go to members of the com-
mission who are more politically
"I 'opposed Lilienthal's appoint-
ment the first time, not so much
because I was opposed to him per-
sonally, but because the Atomic
Energy Commission was derelict
in its duty in not investigating
charges made against him by Dr.
A. E. Morgan, former head of the
TVA," he said.
Senator Flanders refused to
comment on the prospects for the
Presidential election.

The "straight dope" on the Uni-

succeeding and job possibilities-
will be discussed in a special se-
ries of advisory meetings for stu-
dents to be held this week.
Beginning Tuesday and running

schools of education, Law, dentis-
try, business administration, pub-
lic health, and medicine will give
informal talks on their respective

"This series is a supplement to

partmental concentration," As-
sistant Dean Charles Peake of the
literary college declared.
"The deans will discuss not only
the nature of their respective pro-
fessional schools and the under-
graduate preparation needed, but
also the important matter of op-
portunities in that field now and
in the future," he said.

UN Interim
Rule in Holy
Land Is Seen
Jerusalem Battle
Halted by Truce
Top United Nations delegates
were reported tonight generally
agreed on creating an emergency
regime for Palestine.
Sentiment for a provisional ad-
ministration for the Holy Land
was said authoritatively to have
crystallized after long meetings
among the delegates.
The special UN Assembly on
Palestine is working against time.
The British plan to give up the
Palestine mandate at midnight
Friday. The Assembly is trying
to shape up at least a token or-
ganization to fill the vacuum
created by the British action.
Jerusalem Peaceful.
Meanwhile, in Jerusalem, a
cease fire, agreed to by Arabs and
Jews, protected the Holy City and
its shrines tpday for the first time
in five months. It went into effect
at noon (5 a.m. EST), and not a
shot was heard in the first hour.
The arrangement was a tem-
porary one designed to prevent
hostilities until a permanent Jer-
usalem truce can be negotiated.
The Jews are demanding free ac-
cess from Jewish Tel Aviv to the
wailing wall in Jerusalem's old
walled area and the deportation
of foreign Arab fighters from the
Holy City.
Gen. Sir Alan Gordon Cunning-
ham, Palestine High Commission-
er, negotiated the cease fire at
a meeting in Jericho yesterday
with Arab leaders. The Jews did
not attend the Jericho talks.
Egyptians Advance
Earlier today, the "Command
Volunteers, Southern Front Pal-
estine" issued a communique say-
ing volunteer Egyptian forces had
penetrated about 30 miles into the
Holy Land.
"Our forces penetrated the
frontiers and held their posts
without casualities," said the
communique. "Some forces rushed
to the northern part of the front
to help Arabs repulsing Jewish
attacks on Iraq Suweidan, some
50 kilometers north of the Egyp-
tian border town of Rafa.
UN Moral Backing
At Lake Success it is realized an
emergency control organization
would have only the moral force
of the UN to back it up.
Finn Moe, Norway's delegate to
the Assembly, was assigned the
task of drawing up over the week-
end concrete proposals for a 12-
nation sub-committee of the As-
sembly to consider.

Taft Opposes
Banning Red
Partyiin U.S.
Fears Communists
Sen. Robert Taft (R-Ohio) said
tonight he doubts that it would
be wise to ban the Communist
"As a matter of policy, it is
somewhat doubtful whether we
gain much by outlawing Commun-
ism and driving the organization
underground," said Ohio's "fav-
orite son" candidate for the Re-
publican presidential nomination.
Taft thus took a position sim-
ilar to that of Gov. Thomas E.
Dewey of New York. Dewey has
differed sharply on the issue with
the other of the most active can-
didates for the Republican Presi-
dential nomination, Harold E.
Stassen favors banning the
party. He told a Washinton news
conference today that "stopping
infiltration of Communists may
be one of the keys toward stop-
ping World War III." Dewey, cam-
paigning in Oregon, has described
Stassen's proposal as totalitarian.
Taft said:
"Under our Constitution, we
cannot and should not make it
illegal for an American citizen to
think communism or express his
opinions so long as he does not
advocate a violent overthrow of
tlfe Government." He gave his
views in a speech prepared for the
Executives Club of Milwaukee.
The Battle against Communism
can be won only by advancing the
principles of free government, the
senator argued.
Taft criticized what he called
the "irreparable and destructive
results" of the foreign policies of
the Roosevelt and Truman ad-
ministrations. He predicted that
a choice of foreign polcy "will
largely determine the (presiden-
tial) election."
Sen. Arthur Vandenberg (R-
Mich.) and the Republican Con-
gress "have practically forced the
Administration into a definite
position against Communism,"
Taft said. He added a hope that
the conflict between this country
and Russia will remain a propa-
ganda war."

state lawmakers to the special ses-
sion on May 20 and passage of
the $16,222,648 "capital. outlay"
The completion of buildings on
both the Michigan State College
campus and here depends on the
reviving of the appropriation.
According to the Associated
Press, a compromise agreement
on the multi-million dollar con-
struction program will be sought
next Thursdayrby the House Ways
and Means Committee and the
Senate Finance Committee. Such
an agreement could be presented
to the full Legislature when it
convenes May 20.
The MSC campaign was backed
by the Michigan State News, daily
student newspaper, by student
veterans organizations and the
student council.

igan State News carried two edi-
torials urging students to con-
tact the legislators and gave fur-
ther aid by printing the names

they will keep faith with the col-
lege when they return to Lansing

KR Unions Spurn
51/2c Wage Hike
The nationwide railroad strike,
"will go on" as scheduled Tues-
day, Union leaders said tonight
after a fruitless three-hour con-
ference with management at thek
White House.
The three key unions which
voted the strike turned down the
railroads' renewed offer of a 15
cent an hour wage increase and
various changes in operating rules.
W. T. Faricy, President of the
Association of American Rail-
roads and a spokesman for the
carriers, declared: "That's our
final offer."
The situation was tightly dead-
locked tonight and John R. Stee-
man, President Truman's labor
trouble shooter, admitted it. He
"So far it has been impossible
to bring the parties to an agree-
ment. We are going to try again
tomorrow. I have asked both sides
to think over the matter tonight
and discuss it with their people."
The railroads' proposal for
the 15 cent raise and the
changes in working rules was
identical with the settlement,
recommended weeks ago by a
Presidential fact finding board.
Other railroad unions accepted,
such an increase but three im.
portant operating brotherhoods-
the engineers, firemen and en-
ginemen, and switchmen, held out
for more.
Referring to today's renewal of
that 151/2 cent offer, Alvanley
Johnston, head of the engineers,
told reporters:
"That's no settlement.
"As far as we're concerned,
the strike will go on."
The possibility that the Gov-
ernment might seize and operate
the roads remained. But there was
