WASHINGTON, May 13-(A'
President Truman today form
asked Congress for $2,434,441,
more for America's defense p
gram.
Congress has been expecting
since April 1, when the Presid
said military requirements '
been boosted since his March
message .to Congress urging
draft, universal military train
and expanded armed forces.
He said the new program wo
cost about $3,000,000,000 m
than the original budget estim
for the armed forces. This fi
estimate, made in January,v
around $11,000,000,000.
Today's request for $2,434,44
000, plus the $725,000,000 as
for airplanes recently, plus a
quest for authority to enter i
defense contracts totalling $4
000,000 bring to $3,199,441,000t
additional money asked for<
fense since January.

ird Although only 15,096 local vot-
ing
si- ters appeared at the polls in 1946
for the off-year election, the bal-
lot casters are expected to "at
of- least equal" the 20,000 registrants
of- in 1944, according to Miss Vivian
the Schultz, clerk's office employee.
tial Urge Early Registration
She recalled working steadily
with four others, for weeks, from
8 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily, registering
voters.
"Then, at night, we had to work
late typing out forms for our files
and the precinct voting catalogs,"
she explained. "That's why we
like voters who must register to
)- do so as early as possible. In the
ally scramble, we have to forget Xl11
000 our other work."

fing in Ann Arbor elections, ac-,
cording to Miss Schultz, who helps
ent handle the records of local voters.
ent Each voter is on record --- includ-
17 ing name, age, citizenship stand-
ing, address, name of spouse and
a even the times he has voted.
ing Everything But 'how'
"We know everything, except
uld 'how' he voted," MIiss Schultz com-
ore mented.
late Locked looseleaf files on each
irst voter in all precincts, from which
was no names can be added or pulled
out, are sent to the proper voting
41,- booths. Each voter fills out an
ked application for a ballot and is
re- checked off the list. After the
nto election, the applications are
40,- checked with the voting registra-
the tion file in the Clerk's office. The
de- double check insures that no
fraudulent ballots will be cast.

deduction plan may be obtained
at the Personnel Office, 208 Tni-
versity Hall. Forms for payroll
deductions in May checks should
be made out before May 15.
Lowest deduction available un-
der the plan will be $6.25 per
month, Mr. Ueker said, which will
provide for the purchase of an
$18.75 Series E Savings Bond every
three months. Larger deductions
may be made in multiples of $6.25.
Mr. Ueker pointed out that Uni-
versity staff and faculty members
are due to get larger paychecks
this month because of the reduc-
tion in income taxes. He suggest-
ed that the savings bonds would
provide an excellent way to put
these savings at work to provide
the owner with still more income
10 years from now.

SRA To Give
Its Constituents
Larger Voice
The Student Religious Associa-
tion, coordinating body for all
campus religious groups, will give
its constituents a larger voice in
policy decisions beginning Sept. 1
when its new constitution goes
into effect.
As 'approved by the Board of
Governors of Lane Hall,thecon-
stitution establishes a new elec-
torate from which representatives
to the governing body will be
elected.
According to the constitution,
every student who has actively
participated in pampus religious
activities for at least one semester
may be admitted to the electorate.
Each spring the electorate will
choose from its membership a
seven-man executive committee.
This committee, together with
SRA department heads and re-
ligious group representatives, will
compose the council, the policy
making body.
Under the present constitution,
policy development, including
control of expenditures, is under
the direction of a small executive
committee. The revision will per-
mit a greatly expanded student
representation, an SRA spokes-
man said.

"In two important respects, they
are poles apart," he said.
"To the liberal, freedom of ex-
pression is the primary considera-
tion. On the other hand, to the
conservative and the Communist,
freedom of expression and action
is at best a secondary objective,"
Prof. VanderVelde added.
Prof. VanderVelde noted that
the Communists, by the very na-
ture of their philosophy, could not
afford to give freedom of expres-
sion a leading place in their pro-
gram.
Communist Opposition
"In a country accustomed to po-
litical freedom, the Communist
{plan would meet with such oppo-
sition that only by a program of
repression could it be maintained."
To the conservative, civil rights
appear to be of lesser importance
than property rights, Prof. Van-
derVelde said. "Conservatives may
give general support to civil rights,
but when a group that is feared,
such as the Communists, appears,
they are often willing to deny
these liberties."
Another Similarity
Another similarity between
Communist and conservative that
Prof. VanderVelde pointed out was
their "preoccupation with matters
of property." While the ends of
the two groups are at opposite ex-
tremes, they both think and act in
terms of property, he explained.
The liberal differs with both
these philosophies in that he be-
lieves civil rights are of greater
importance than personal property
rights, Prof. VanderVelde added.
"The liberal is also interested in
property rights, but he believes
that this end can best be achieved
by the use of freedom of expres-
sion and democratic action.

Summertime- and the living,
is easy, if you take a nice lon
vacation and forget geology and
English.
And many students will toss
aside the texts for the warm
months, Dan Vreeland, manag;er
of a local travel agency predicts.
"This will be another 'banner'
year in the tourist business, even
bigger than last year's boom," he
commented. "Many resorts are
booked solid for July and August.
Only June and September are
still open for reservations io,,."
On His Toes
"The student vacationer is {et-
ting on his toes: he either has bis
reservation in already orsplan
ning to do so soon," Vreela nd ce\
plained,
Recommended two week vaca-
tions for students include a host
of 'package' tour' through north-
west United States, They are made
up of groups of 15 persons aand
start in Chicago. The $200 price
of the tour includes pullman, hotel
meals and all incidental expenses.
A typical route would stop off at
St. Paul, any one of a dozen no
tional parks, the Rockies, B'i',
Seattle and San Francisco.
Organizing the Minutes
"The secret of the success of
trip is organizing each minute to
see and do the most possible and
have the most fun," Vreeland ex-
plained.
Fish are jumping - in the lakes
and streams of Upper Michigan.
Just ask any hardware dealer in
Ann Arbor. They are ready to
equip the ardent piscatorial va-
cationer with everything from Ilies
to licenses.
