McCarthy
Makes New
Spy Charge
Says Top Spy In
State Department
WASHINGTON - (A - d)Senator
McCarthy charged yesterday that
ad man connected with the State
Department is "the top Russian
espionage agent in this country,"
but Senator Tydings said. McCar-
thy had not produced any "pri-
mary evidence" to back up the
accusation.
McCarthy, Wisconsin Republi-
can, made his charge in talking to
newsmen and was quickly called
into a closed-door session of a
Senate Committee investigating
his allegations of Red infiltration
in the State Departments.
** *
CHAIRMAN Tydings (D-Md)
later said that McCarthy had
merely pinned a new label on an
old case, and had suggested the
investigators look into government
files for evidence to back up the
charge.
"The name of the individual
had already been given to us
before," Tydings said.
SUnder questioning by newsmen,
Tydings refused to disclose whe-
r the alleged Soviet spy chief is
now with 'the State Department,
whether the man is in or out of
the country, or when his name was
originally given to the commttee.
* * *
SO -FAR, McCarthy has publicly
named nine persons in the 13-day-
old Senate inquiry.
t The Maryland Senator said
the committee will "take every
step we can to run down the
evidence," and he told reporters
that McCarthy and committee
members appeared to agree that
the next moves in the spy probe
should be made behind closed
doors.
He said he .did not know*we
the committee would meet again.
McCarthy described the alleged
Soviet spy to newsmen as the one-
time boss of Alger Hiss "in the es-
pionage ring in the Department."
HISS, a former high State De-
partment official, was recently con-
victed of perjury for denying that
he gave secret U.S. documents to
a Russian espionage ring.
McCarthy told newsmen he has
had a look at the alleged Soviet
spy's loyalty file, and he declared:
"The information in it will
shock and jar the committee to
such an extent that the Democrats
will stop playing petty politics."
Dorr Declares
McCarthy Has
Libel Security
Victims of Sen. McCarthy's cru-
sade to expose pro-Communist
leanings by State Department of-
ficials can take no legal recourse
against the Senator even if they
prove he is lying, according to
Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the politi-
cal science department.
"Section 6 of the First Article
of the Constitution states that
members of Congress can not be

questioned for any speech or de-
bate they are concerned with in
either house," Prof. Dorr ex-
plained.
* * *
OF COURSE, there may be some
question of whether Sen. McCar-
thy is abusing this Congressional
privilege, but as long as he main-
tains that the accusations are es-
sential to his investigation, no
abuse can be charged, he noted.
The fact is, he said, that mem-
b,-rs of Congress can say any-
thing they please in a session
and not be sued for slander.
And the courts have upheld this
privilege in every case that has
been brought before them, Prof.
Dorr disclosed.
* * *
"THE ORIGINAL purpose of
such a Constitutional provision was
to assure the public proper repre-
sentation by guaranteeing that the
men they sent to legislative bodies
would not have their freedom of

Athletic Fees Boost
Requested by Board
Informs Regents 'Proper' Increase
Needed To Speed Building Program
By DAVE THOMAS
Reflecting a growing cdncern over the progress of the Athletic
Department's "long-proposed building program, the Board in Control
of Intercollegiate Athletics has called for a hike in student athletic
fees.
In an annual report to the Regents, the board declared that a
"proper" increase in the yearly seven dollar student fee is necessary
for the successful solution of building program finance difficulties.

Ypsi* Rent
Decontr~ol
Hits 1,600
Ypsilanti and Ypsilanti town-
ship rent controls affecting more
than 1,600 residentswere remov-
ed yesterday by Federal Housing
Expediter Tigh. Woods yesterday.
The decontrol, which took effect
iminediately after the announce-
ment was issued, was made on
recommendation from the Wash-
tenaw County Rent Advisory
Board.
* * *
Ypsilanti township includ s
Willow Village, University hous-
ing project for married students.
Ann Arbor and Ann Arbor town-
ship remain the only parts of
Washtenaw County still under
rent control.
The County Advisory Board in-
dicated that it would not recom-
mend removing Ann Arbor rent
controls at its meeting last month.
YPSILANTI and Ypsilanti town-
ship are subject to re-control if
the rents there rise markedly be-
cause the decontrol ruling was
handed down by a Federal agen-
cy.
Rent decontrol through Gover-
nor Williams was sought in a pe-
tition sponsored by a number of
Ypsilanti groups and approved
unanimously by thetcitycouncil.
If he had granted the decontrol,
it would have been approved as
an automatic formality by Federal
Expediter Woods, and could not
be reinstated.
Rent Controls
May Cease
WASHINGTON--(P-Congress
gave President Truman a broad
hint yesterday that there may not
be any federal rent control after
June 30.
It sent him a money bill which
included funds earmarked to pay
off employes of the control agency.
** *
THE SENATE completed legis-
lative action on the measure, a
$738,000,000 deficiency bill to pro-
vide extra money for various gov-
ernment agencies for the fiscal
year ending in June. The House
passed it Monday, sliced down by
about $20,000,000 in a Senate-
House conference.
Included in the total was $4,-
000,000 for the Office of Housing
Expediter Tighe E. Woods. Of that
amount $2,600,000 is to be used
only to pay for terminal leave of
employes. The other $1,400,000 is
for operating expenses, for which
Woods had asked $3,600,000.

Building which would contain
basketball and swimming facili-
ties, additional facilities for gen-
eral physical education and new
administrative offices.
The program would cost an
estimated $6,000,000.
Since 1923, the athletic fee has
remained fixed while other Uni-
versity fees have increased, the
board pointed out.
* * *
AND WHILE it was admitted
that football receipts of $660,000
for the 1948 season and resultant
$36,000 surplus for the entire de-
partment represented a "favor-
able" showing, the board caution-
ed that football income is not
sufficiently dependable to finance
an extensive building program.
In the past few years, the Uni-
versity has been riding the crest
of the wave as far as football
revenue is concerned, the board
declared. But "a realistic and
conservative financial policy
must envisage the ... likelihood
that operating revenues will be
lower in the years ahead."
In the fiscal year from -July
1948 to June 1949, the Athletic
Department received a- total of
$106,000 from the allocation of
tuition fees, after deduction of
director's salary and director
emeritus annuity.
* * *
IT IS THROUGH an increase
in this category that the board
hopes to receive enough funds
to meet the $420,000 needed an-
nually to service and retire the
proposed construction debt on a
20-year basis.
For his seven dollars, a Uni-
versity student gets an "enor-
mous bargain," the board main-
tained.
In addition to being admitted
without charge to a wide range
of athletic events which would
cost an ordinary spectator $50
per year, "he receives the privi-
lege of using the various indoor
and outdoor athletic facilities."
But, in the opinion of the board,
"the time has arrived when the
continuation '.. . of a bargain of
this magnitude is no longer war-
ranted in the light of the Univer-
sity's needs for physical education
plant and equipment."
Student Sentenced
To Probation, Fine
A 20-year-old University stu-
dent convicted of forging a $15
check, has been placed on five
years' probation and sentenced to
pay $525 in fines and costs in cir-
cuit court.
The student, Robert Jacobs of
Detroit, was ordered to make $15
restitution to the campus-area
store which accepted the fraudul-
ent check in 1947.
Jacobs was arrested June 15,
1949, after a detective noticed a
signature similarity between the
two-year-old check and one writ-
ten without sufficient bank funds
by Jacobs last summer.

Cites Danger
In Anti-Re d
Legislation
Justice Official
Warns Congress
WASHINGTON-(P)-The Jus-
tice Department yesterday urged
Congress to move with caution on
anti-Communist legislation which,
the Department said, would "in-
fiict punishment on named groups
without jury trial."
Peyton Ford, assistant to At-
torney General McGrath, told the
House Un - American Activities
Committee it is "by no means cer-
tain"that the constitutionality of
such legislation could be upheld.
FORD suggested that the legis-
lators go slow until important con-
stitutonal questions can be settled
by the courts.
Ford recalled FBI Chief J.
Edgar Hoover's testimony advis-
ing "caution in consideration of
any legislation which would
specifically deal with the Com-
munist Party in such a way as
to enable Communists to por-
tray themselves as martyrs."
The House Committee began
hearings yesterday on two anti-
Communist measures sponsored by
Chairman Wood (D-Ga) and Rep.
Nixon (R-Calif).
* * *
THE WOOD. BILL would make
it unlawful for federal employes
or persons working on national
defense projects to belong to the
Communist party or to any sub-
versive organization.
The Nixon measure provides a
10-year prison term and $10,000
fine for anyone convicted of con-
spiring to set up a Communist
dictatorshipin the United States.
It also would require Communist
and Communist-front organiza-
tions to register with the Depart-
ment of Justice and furnish a list
of members.
On the other side of capitol hill,
Senator Ferguson (R-Mich) told
the Senate the Communist move-
ment in this country would be
flushed into the open under a bill
approved recently by the Senate
Judiciary Committee.
Laing To Talky

litical science department, will

projects, Miss Zipperstein ex-
plained.
In addition, applicants must
be willing to work closely with
the local NSA committee for the
remainder of this semester and

TWO VIEWS AIRED:
Federal A id To Schools
A rgued by Gould, Lucas
BLOOMINGTON, ILL.-(AP)-A college president took issue last
night with Senate Majority Leader Lucas (D-Ill) on the need for Fed-
eral aid to public schools.
Lawrence M. Gould, head of Carleton College, Northfield, Minn.,
said on a radio program that the aid bill pending in the House "was
instituted by propaganda from above."
Gould said that "no state asked for Federal aid" proposed in
Senate Bill 246 which would equalize fund grants to make more money

available to so-called poor states.
Sen. Lucas said that "over 5
including the National Associationr'
of Manufacturers, chambers of
commerce, the farm bureaus, the
American Federation of Labor and
others" supported the Senate
measure.

Asks Second Cut
WASHINGTON - W)P - The,
House Appropriations Committee
yesterday cut $1,567,900,504 from
the $30,612,930,668 that President
Truman asked to operate more
than 40 federal agencies next year
It approved for House consider-
ation next week an omnibus $29,
045,030,164 bill wrapping into a
single package for the first time in
years almost all federal appropria-
tions except those for foreign as-
sistance. Fixed charges such as1'
intereston the public debt are not
included in the measure.
REPRESENTING an outlay of
about $200 for every man, woman
and child in the nation for the
year starting July 1, the bill pro-
jects a Federal deficit of $4,153,-
682,312 for that year, or about a
billion dollars less than the Presi-
dent estimated.
A bi-partisan group of eco-
nomizers led by Rep. Taber (R-
NY) is talking of trying to $ut
at least another billion dollars
from the big measurebefore it
leaves the House.
Republicans on the Appropria-
tions Committee voted unanimous-
ly against sending the bill to the
House floor on the ground that it
was "too big."
MORE THAN HALF of the $29,-
000,000,000 total is directly or in-
directly attributable to the cst of
war and national defense.
It includes $13,911,127,300 for,
the defense establishment, $5,..
801,782,795 for the Veterans Ad-
ministration~ and $947,970,000
for the Atomic Energy Commis-
sion. The bulk of the veterans'
fund is for benefit payments to
men who fought the last war.
None of the big military and de-
fense items was sharply cut.
The average reduction in the !
entire bill was about 5 percent be-'
low Truman's budget requests.
LARGEST SINGLE appropria-
tion in the bill is for the defense
department. Its cut of $203,33200
in cash was all the committee
claimed it could safely make.
"Undoubtedly we are taking
certain very grave risks in not be-
ing better prepared," the commit-
tee said, cautioning against fur-
ther cuts that might "cripple the
national defense effort."
For the present year, which ends
June 30, the defense department
was given $13,055,562498 in cash
and $2,636,301,000 in contract.

A typically warm and boisterous
frontier welcome was received by
President Alexander G. Ruthven
and Mrs. Ruthven on their arrival
in Cheyenne as part of their Phoe-

alumni in Wyoming.
A loudspeaker blared out 'The

The Ruthvens were driven to their

sion.
Wyoming's governor A. G. Crane,

"NOT ONE single substantial
organization opposed the bill,"
Lucas said.
The Illinois Senator said the
proposed legislation would give,
the most aid to those states
where educational need is great-
est, and added "we cannot con-
tinue to let our education go
down hill."
Lucas said in response to a ques-
tion from the floor of the hall he
believed the Education Aid bill's
chances of final passage have been
hurt by an argument in the House
over whether parochial and pri-
vate school pupils should be
granted funds for bus transporta-
tion to school.
Gould said the bill provided
the means of strict federal con-
trol of all the nation's public
,school systems.
"A state should not receive fed-
eral aid when it fails to tax its
residents properly for education
when it can afford to build great
bridges and highways," Gould
said.
