Senate Votes
Support for
Truman Veto
FBI Atom Group
WASHINGTON, May 21 -()
-By a four-vote margin, the
Senate today upheld President
Truman's veto of a bill which
would have let key senators order
FBI probes of persons nominated
to the atomic energy commission.
Voting to override the veto were
47 senators, including 38 Repub-
licans and nine Southern Demo-
crats. Against overriding were 29
legislators, including 27 Demo-
crats and two Republicans, Lan-
ger of North Dakota and Morse of
Oregon. .A two thirds vote, or 51,
was needed to override.
The bill was passed by the Sen-
ate April 12 by voice vote and by
the House by unanimous consent
May 3. It attracted comparative-
ly little attention on its first go-

Mr. Truman vetoed it last Sat-

The bill would have affected
only the five Atomic Commission
members and the Commission's

confirmation. It provided that

Committee asked for it, they could
get a check on an appointee by the
Federal Bureau of Investigation.
Finally Sustained
Today was the first time this
year and only the second time
during the 80th Congress that one
of Mr. Truman's vetoes has been
sustained when called up. (Vetoes
of minor bills are frequently al-
lowed to stand without putting the
issue to a vote.)
Congress this year overrode Mr.1
Truman on the Republican tax cut
bill and on a measure to exclude
certain newspaper and magazine
vendors from the Social Security
program. Last year Congress

MCAF Denied
Right To Bring
Marzani Here
The Michigan Committee for
Academic Freedom was denied
permission yesterday to bring Carl
Marzani, alleged Communist, back
to the campus for a "rally on aca-
demic freedom."
In a refusal issued by the Com-
mittee on University Lectures, it
was stated that Marzani "has been
convicted in Federal Court on 11
counts" and that "the Committee
does not feel that the hospitality
of the University can be extended
to him under the Regents' Rules."
The refusal further stated that
the Committee does not approve
public meetings this late in the
semester when final examinations
are about to begin.
Arrangements had been made
by MCAF for Marzani to speak

here on Tuesday on "Current
Threats to Academic Freedom To-
day," Al Shapiro, chairman of the
Student League for Industrial De-
mocracy and MCAF representa-
tive, said.
Marzani had appeared in Ann
Arbor in December with Gerhard
Eisler, avowed Communist whose
scheduled speech here was pre-
vented by a student mob.
George Shepherd, chairman of
MCAF, commented, "We were
bringing Marzani back to the cam-
pus in order to give the University
the opportunity to take the black
mark of the Eisler ban off its rec-
ord. It's a sad state of affairs
when the intelligentsia of the
country follows the mob instead of


Portland Area Strong for Dewey;
Up-State Race Closely Contested
As The Daily went to press this morning, the latest Associated
Press dispatches from Oregon reported that Gov.r Thomas Dewey of
New York had jumped into an early lead over Harold E. Stassen on
initial incomplete returns from yesterday's Republican presidential
primary election.
The count from 146 of Oregon's 1861 precincts gave Dewey 5943,
Stassen 4930.

-The Jewish air force raided the
Jerusalem area and the Arabs'
coastal stronghold of Gaza, Is-
rael's military command an-
nounced today. k
Arab planes again struck Tel-
Aviv, Israel's capital. A flight of
two or three fighter bombers dive
bombed through light antiaircraft
fire over a northern district of the
city. For the past six days Tel-
Aviv has been under an air raid
or on an alert a third of the time.
The Jewish air strikes were
made last night. Fires were set in

occupied, and an attack was made

The first announcement that
the Jewish air force was in action

Hopes for passage of a federal

yesterday as three Detroit tele-

They called the class as taught

Social Aims
In Education
Americans have begun to give
education a social purpose not
known before, declaredDr. New-
ton Edwards last night at the
fourth annual history of educa-
tion lecture.
Dr. Edwards, professor of edu-
cation at the University of Chi-
cago, emphasized that this gen-
eration is caught in the grip of
two great revolutions, one demo-
cratic and the other technological.
"The impact," he said, "of tech-
nology has created the need for
social designing. There is an in-
escapable new orientation for ed-
ucation, the new responsibility of
shaping a broad social policy."
The democratizing of the pat-
tern of human associations was
responsible for the emerging of
the American system of educa-
tion, he stated, adding that the
safety and very existence of a
democratic state depends on its
system of education.
"In the past, he declared, "we
have relied on an automatic na-
tural chance; in the future we
must depend on a positive plan
and program.
Dr. Edwards spoke under the
auspices of the history and educa-
tion schools in connection with
the Michigan Conference on the
Social Foundations of Education
held on campus yesterday.

commendation from management.

which normally casts a third of
the state's vote.
Although the New York gover-
nor was ahead on scattered and
inconclusive returns in 14 of Ore-
gon's 36 counties, with Stassen
holding a lead in six counties, the
up-state race was close.
Dewey's Multnomah county lead
when 146 precincts were repre-
sented was about two-thirds of his
overall margin at that juncture.
The count from 71 of the county's
512 precincts was Dewey 2383,
Stassen 1637.
Overcast but generally favorable
weather brought predictions of a
record vote in the wake of the
state's biggest political spree in
Uniformily heavy voting was
reported in almost all parts of
the state. As high as 15 to 20
per cent of the registered Re-
publicans had cast ballots in the
first two and a half hours after
poll opening at 8 a.m.
Both contenders for Oregon's
Republican presidential prefer-
ence wound up their barnstorm-
ing campaigns in Portland last
night, and today departed before
the vote was tallied.
For both the New Yorker and
the Minnesotan, a loss in Oregon
could be politically damaging in
the final selection of the Repub-
lican standard-bearer in 1948.

Dies in Detroit
Prominent Leader
To Be Buried Monday
All Jewry and the whole com-
munity suffered a great loss when
philanthropist and University
alumnus Frederick M. Butzel died
late Wednesday.
Thus spoke Rabbi Herschel Ly-
mon of a man who had served
as a member of the Michigan
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation,
Inc., president of the Ford Re-
public Resettlement Service and
headed the Jewish Children's Bu-
Mr. Butzel, who at the age of
69 was senior partner in a large
Detroit law firm, was "always a
friend of the campus Founda-
tion," Rabbi Lymon said.
The elderly civic leader grad-
uated from the University in 1897
and was the brother of Michigan
Supreme Court Justice Henry M.
Included in the many dozens of
civic and philanthropic services
he undertook in his full and active
life was the leading of the War
Camp Community Service and the
Home Service Section of the
American Red Cross during the
First World War.
His death brought tributes to-
day from scores of prominent
men throughout the state and na-

To State Bans
On Union Shop
Decision Based on
Taft Act Provision
The National Labor Relations
Board decided by a 3 to 2 vote to-
day that it will not hold elections
to determine whether employes
want a union shop in any state
which has a law prohibiting the
union shop.
The Labor Department said 10
states have laws which prohibit
the union shop: Arkansas, Geor-
gia, Iowa, Nebraska, Nevada,
North Carolina, South Dakota,
Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.
Decision Basis
The decision was based on the
Taft Hartley Act. The law per-
mits the union shop if two re-
quirements are met:
(A.) A majority of the employes
signify in an election conducted
by the NLRB that they want it.
(B.) State laws do not prohibit
At first the Board said 19 states
would be affected, but later
changed the number to 13, elimi-
nating Colorado, Delaware, Kan-
sas, Massachusetts, New Hamp-
shire and Wisconsin.
Will Be Held
It explained that there are cer-
tain state restrictions on the un-
ion shop in those six states but
that the elections could be held
The Board's ruling was regard-
ed as an important interpretation
of the Law which went into effect
last year over President Truman's
veto. It means that where there is
a conflict between state laws and
the permissive union shop section
of the Taft-Hartley Act, NLRB
will recognize the state laws and
not hold the elections.
Federal Restrictions
The board said that the Taft-
Hartley Law "in effect removes
all Federal restrictions upon ex-
isting and future state legislation
prohibiting compulsory unionism
. even where such legislation
may affect employes engaged in
interstate commerce."
The issue arose on the applica-
tion of an AFL clerks union for
a union shop election in stores of
the Giant Food Shopping Center,
Inc., in Virginia and the District
of Columbia.
