THIS WAS the third Conserva-

Laborites have beaten down.
Laborite, whips apparently
confident of victory last night,
despite the fact that their
party has only a six-seat major-
ity in the house of Commons.
This time, ailing Labor members
were spared from appearing in the
House. In the earlier tests some
had been rushed to the chamber
from sick beds.

Attlee's government won by 19
votes this time compared with
margin of 14 and 25 votes in
the two earlier tests.
Labor's victory followed by a'
few hours a statement by its
Chancellor of the Exchequer, Sir
Stafford Cripps, that a halt will
be called in the expansion of Bri-
tain's costly national health ser-
vice. Further, Cripps warned all
other government departments to
adhere from now on to their over-
all budget estimates.

WINSTON Churchill's Conser-
vatives made a determined at-
tack on overspending by various
f government departments of 1949-
50 budget estimates.
So far, the departments have
asked 148,402,365 pounds ($415,-
526,622) extra for the year end-
ing March 31. More than half
this amount-98,730,000 pounds
($276,404,00)-is sought by the
National Health which has the
task of providing free medical
care for residents of the coun-
try. The service originally was
alloted 260,000,000 pounds
($728,000,000) for the year.
CRIPPS TOLD the House that
Britain cannot afford to go on in-
creasing its outlay on the national
health service. He even hinted
that spending for this purpose
may have to be cut, saying:
"We must bring expenditure on
health into its proper proportion
with food subsidies, education and
all the other matters that vitally
concern the safety and happiness
of our people."

the inspection of multiple dwell-

was announced yesterday by the
city engineer's office.
Hunter's hiring clears the last
obstacle in front of an inspection
program which will cover student
rooming houses. The city has been
searching for a suitable man to fill
the job since January, when the
Ann Arbor Common Council

WASHINGTON -(UP) - General
federal aid to education died amid
angry hubbub yesterday in the
-House Labor Committee.
The officially assigned reason
was inability of the committee to
work out a formula that would
avoid federal control over local
school systems. The real infight-
ing through six weeks of hammer-
and-tongs committee work, how-
ever, had been over the religious
issue of letting parochial schools
share in the program.

THE MORE stubborn advocates
of a general aid bill planned an-
other effort today, but committee
leaders agreed the effort probably
will be futile.
To an accompaniment of loud
voices and gavel-pounding, the
committee voted 13 to 12 against
a senate-passed $300,000,000 aid
plan to supplement states' school

THE COUNCIL will be "design-
ed to advise the literary college

Smith Says Individuals
Create World Problems
World problems are created by
individuals, whom only Christ can
change, the Rev. Dr. Robert
Smith said yesterday.
Dr. Smith, chairman of the de-
partments of philosophy, sociology

buque University, spoke in the
Congregational church in connec-
tion with Religion in Life week.

LANSING - Money-where to
spend it and how to get it-held
the stage last night as Michigan's
Legislature assembled for today's
opening of the 1950 special ses-
which will change egotists into al-
truists," he said.
Dr. Smith blamed men, not
intangible forces, for thesg basic
paradoxes of the age:
SCIENCE: Atomic energy, a po-
tential blessing, is used only for
destruction. "We must fear, not
atomic power, but the men who use
MEDICINE: Despite sweeping
advances great areas are com-
pletely without modern methods
of preventing and curing disease.
EDUCATION: "In the age of
the AB and Ph.D., over 60 per
cent of the world population can
neither read nor write.".
ABUNDANCE: While the United
States worries about "overproduc-
tion" the world is starving.
International Relations: "We
have made 'One World,' but there
are still enormous cleavages among
races and areas."

"Christian Science in Student
Life," James Watt, C.S., Rack-
4:30 p.m. - Radio Program:

5 p.m.-Dr. John S. Everton,
"Faith and Christian America,"
8:30 p.m.-Open Forum Dis-
cussion on the extent of Papal
Infallibility, St. Mary's Chapel.
FREEDOM: "In an era which
boasts of freedom, the world has
never seen so much tyranny."
The cause of these paradoxes,
Dr. Smith concluded ,is man's self-
satisfied rebellion against Christ's
leadership. "Christ alone can right
mankind," he said.
JET-PROPELLED AUTO-The British auto industry's biggest postwar secret, a jet-propelled car,

clude air vents on the side, and a gas-expulsion vent in the rear.

McCarthy cited four new names
yesterday in his charges of Red
influence in the state department.
Then he left before his "case
no. 1," Miss Dorothy Kenyon, took

At Cambridge, Mass., Shapley

untrue" 'and said he was "frankly

2. Dr. Frederick L. Schuman
of Williams College, who once
accepted a State Department
invitation to give a one-hour
training lecture to U.S. diplo-
mats on U.S. relations with Rus-

"one of the closest collaborators
and sponsors of Communist-
front organizations in America."
3. Spanish-born Gustavo Duran,
former State Department official
now working in the United Na-

that Duran wa recommended for
