Winter Carnival


eature Gala Sports


Crammers note: A-B-C is all you need to know on one subject--
Winter Carnival.
The Arboretum, Burns Park, and the Coliseum will be the back-
ground for a flurry of snow and ice contests Feb. 2 and 3 climaxed by
the Ice Show at the Coliseum.
WINTER CARNIVAL is being revived under Union-League spon-
sorship after an eight year absence from campus. The first carnivals
in 1939 and 1940 were chiefly processional skating shows, Pat McKen-
na, co-chairman of the Carnival said,
The 1949 winter sports festival with skiing, skating, tobog-
ganing, snowsculpture and dancing was inspired by the 1941 event=
which included all these and even "Silver King," ruler of the
The 1941 Carnival was planned to outstrip all former ones.
Plans were laid, the stage was set, "Silver King" (Forest Evashevski)
was chosen-and Ann Arbor had "the mildest winter in 50 years."
THIS YEAR if the weather rnan does not cooperate, he will at
least have to compfomise, the committee says.
He cannot stop "Loafer's Loft" the informal record dance
from 9 to 12 p.m. Wednesday in the "ski lodge" or the Ice Show
at 7:30 p.m. Thursday in the Coliseum.
The league ballroom will be the ski lodge complete with fireplace,
and sports trappings.
SPORTS CLOTHES of most any description will be the thing to
Permission until 12:30 p.m. has been granted for all women
attending the dance.

Wednesday, Feb. 2:
9:00 a.m.-Officials meet.
12:30 p.m.-Skiers check
1:30 p.m.-Women's cross
1:45 p.m.-Men's Ski
2:00 p.m.--Women's Ski
2:15 p.m.-Three legged
2:30 p.m.-Toboggan
9:00 to 12 p.m.-Loafer's

2:00 p.m.-Skating party.
4:00 p.m.-Skating Races.
7:30 p.m.-Ice Show.

For another 50 cents, you can see Silver King, ruler of the carni-
val, unveilevd at the beginning of the ice show, snow or no. He will
preside over the program which includes figure skating competion,
several acts by the University Ice Skating Club, a crazy relay, a stud-
ent-faculty broomball game and the presentation of final awards, in-
eluding silver dollars for Silver King guessers.
SILVER KING, II, will climax the evening by presenting house
trophies to the houses which amass the most points on all events.
Point totals will mount by 10, 5, or 3 for first, seconds and
thirds respectively. Blue and red ribbons will be sported by first
and second place individual winners.
Events leading up to the awards will begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday
in the Arboretum if there is two inches of snow. After cross-country
skiing obstacle races, modified slalom type, and a three legged race
tobogganers will take over in a distance contest. Pile-on tobogganing
will follow.
ENTRANTS MUST BRING their own toboggans, and men must
provide their own skis. 25 pairs of skis are available to rent to women
at WAB.
Geddes entrance to the Arboretum will be used for all events.
Alpha Phi Omega, boy scout service fraternity will help officiate
at the contests.
An old fashioned atmosphere will be injected in the frolic with
horse-drawn cutter rides in the Arboretum, and a hayride beginning
at 1:30 p.m. Thursday. The hayride will carry students from the mall
to the skating party at Burns Park, which will be followed by skating
races at 4 p.m. If there is no ice, the party will be at the Coliseum,
minus the rates.

Daily-Alex Lmanian.
NAKING PLANS-Pat McKenna, Dick Slocum, and Nancy Hess, (L. to R.) are shown making plans
for Winter Carnival, the sports event which will take place Feb. 2 and 3.

As the jam-packed hearing went
on, a heralded possible source of
opposition to Acheson's confirma-

in the fall of 1944 he and Acheson

he had no confidence that Rus-

Income Tax
Raise Hinted
By President
Middle Bracket
To Be Affected
WASHINGTON -(A')- Presi-
dent Truman suggested by impli-
cation yesterday that Congress
increase the taxes on individual
incomes of $6,000 or more.
He told a news conference the
Treasury defines "middle brack-
et"' incomes, which he had sug-
gested as a possible source for
new revenue, as those starting at
$6,000 and going up to $25,000 or
$30,000 a year.
IN HIS STATE of the Union
message the President asked for
$4,000,000,000 in new taxes. H
said this should come principally
from additional corporation tax-
es, with a portion coming from
revised estate and gift taxes.
He also said in the same mes-
sage that consideration should
be given to raising personal in-
come levies on "middle and up-
per bracket" incomes. He did
not specify the range exactly.
When a reporter tried to clear
this up, Mr. Truman mentioned
the Treasury minimum as $6,000
for the middle bracket, but he
added with a smile it all depends
on the point of view. If you make
$6,000, you probably want the
middle bracket to start at $10,000.
A reporter wanted to know how
Mr. 'Truman felt about the late
President Roosevelt's proposal to
limit indivi dual incomes after
tax s to $;25,000 a year.

State Budget
Chops Funds
To University
Governor Drops
'U' Building Plan
LANSING-(M)-In his annual
budget message to the Legislature,
Gov. Williams chopped $700,000
from University operating fund
requests and failed entirely to
include funds for its proposed ex-
pansion program.
Of the $539,000,000 budget, the
Governor recommended $11,800,-
000 for the University, which rep-
resented a substantial .
over last year's $9,750,000 figure.
THE FISCAL program will put
the state $61 million in the red.
An $80 million operating deficit
will be reduced from a surplus
over the current fiscal year.
The Governor told ar cold and
fearful Legislature that reduced
services or deficit financing
were the only alternatives to
additional taxes.
He said the deficit would re-
sult from "inherited" reasons
rather than his wide program of
social legislation.
* * *
AT THE University, hopes for
an $8 million expansion program
-including four new buildings
and drawing up plans for three
more-visibly dimmed when the
Governor forgot funds for con-
struction on either University or
MSC campuses.
($500,492 was also clipped
from MSC's hopedfor $8,500,-
492 operation request.)
Plans called for the construc-
tion of an addition to Angell Hall,
an addition to the General Li-
brary, an addition to the heating
plant and a new motor vehicle
service building.
THE GOVERNOR told the Leg-
islaturehe would return Feb. 1,
with another message outlining
specific proposals for new taxes.
Republicans, who were not
surprised to see red ink in the
budget, saw red.
In the Senate, where the GOP
majority is in complete control,
sentiment was heavily against ad-
ditional taxes.
House members eyed the pros-
pect fearfully but conceded pri-
vately there may be no alternative.
