Coast Guard
Get House Aid
Action Reverses
gressional "economy drive" was
jolted into reverse yesterday as
the House approved a $279,000,000
Vetrans' Hospital program and a
$1,000,000 Coast Guard Reserve
training project.
) The members, however, shouted
down a proposal to increase the
Post Office Department's approp-
riation by $22,000,000-an amount
which Rep. Larcade {D-La) said
would be sufficient to prevent
sharp curtailment in postal ser-
A VOICE VOTE sent to the Sen-
ate an Administration-opposed
bill directing the Veterans Ad-
ministration to proceed with con-
struction of 16,080 additional hos-
pital beds for war veterans.
RPresident Truman more than
a year ago cancelled the 16,000-
bed plan the first time Con-
gress authorized it. He said the
authorized construction pro-
gram was adequate and was all
that could be staffed by avail-
able medical personnel.
Today's bill, while not appro-
priating funds for the program,
directs the Veterans Administra-
tion to go ahead arranging it des-
pite the President's position.

available the money will be re-
quired if the hospitals-24 new
ones and additions to 14 already
t built or being built-are erected.
Rep. Davis (R-Ws), a World
War II veteran, predicted a veto.
He called the bill a"political
gesture" and said existing fa-
cilities are adequate for vet-
erans with sexvice-onnected

Addition of the 16,000 beds, Da-
i fs claimed, lays down the prin-

THE HOUSE debated the hos-
pital bill only an hour before
passing it without a roll-call vote.
It spentlonger than that before
deciding, 93 to 88, to add $1,000,-
000 to an omnibus bill appropriat-
ing, the extra money being alloted
to the Coast Guard for reserve
training. The omnibus bill, ap-
propriating a total of $29,000,000,-

eral agencies for the fiscal year
starting July 1.
Pollock Will

Prof. James K. Pollock, chair-
man of the political science de-
partment, will keynote an open
i meeting to rally campus support
for the findings of the Hoover
Commission, at 7:30.p.m. today in
A the Union.
The meeting will be held under
{ the auspices of Student Legisla-
ture to, organize a campus branch

of the huge national "Citizens
Committee" formed to back the
Hoover Commission's recommen-
dations for reorganization of the
federal government.
PROF. Pollock, who was a mem-
ber of the Hoover Commission,
will explain the purposes and
goals of the local committee and
briefly review the program of the
national "Citizens Committee."
Designed to arouse support
for the Hoover Commission's re-
commendations, the Committee
was established immediately af-
ter the Commission findings
were made public.
It is a non-partisan brganiza-
tion which has received support
from many of the nation's out-
standing business, labor and poli-
tical leaders.

PhiiI ps To Speak
Here Thursday
Communist Herbert J. Phillips will speak once and possibly twice
this week in Ann Arbor, it was revealed yesterday as two groups moved
to sponsor talks by the former University of Washington professor.
Phillips is scheduled to appear in a debate on capitalism vs.
communism at 8:30 p.m. Thursday in a State St. cafeteria, under the
sponsorship of an ad hoc committee formed to hold the affair.

AN OPPONENT for Phillips had not yet been obtained, committee

member John Sloss, Grad., said 1
one could be obtained.
King Seizes
West Sector
Of Palestine
AMMAN, Hashemite Jordan-{P)
-King Abdullah yesterday for-
mally signed documents annexing
western Palestine and the old city
of Jerusalem to his Jordan King-
dom. He thereby confronted the
Arab League and United Nations
with direct challenges.
The signing came after a stormy
session of parliament at which at
least five Palestinian members vot-
~ed for delay in acting on the union.
The annexation of the 1,600
square miles of western Pales-
tine disposes of what is left of
Palestine outside Israel except
for a small coastal strip in the
southwest at Gaza which is oc-
cupied by Egypt. Jordan's troops
have occupied the annexed area
since the armistice ended fight-
ing with Israel.
The step put squarely up to for-
eign powers the question of recog-
nition of the annexation.
The Unit edNations has formal-
ly gone on record for the interna-
tionalization of Jerusalem, includ-
ing the old city.
The Arab League, at its last
meeting in Cairo April 13, declared
the annexation of any part of Pal-
estine by an Arab country should
be a violation of the League char-
ter and subject to sanctions.
(Israel, in an official statement,
said the annexation was a "unila-
teral act" which it was not re-
cognizing. The status of western
Palestine, the statement said, is
subject to final settlement in a
peace treaty.)

Chairman Francis A. O'Neill,
Jr., of the National Mediation

made in the meantime to settle
the issue.
THE DISPUTE centered about

firement on big diesel engines.

distance passenger service and
western freight service had al-

Prof. Philip Wernette of the
School of Business Administra-
tion, who plann ed to oppose
Phillips in a similar Michigan
Forum debate before it was can-
celed by the University Lecture
Committee, declined to take part
in the Thursday night program.
"I wouldn't want to participate
in a debate that wasn't officially
approved by the University," Prof.
Wernette said.
THE second appearancedby
Phillips would be made at a closed
meeting in the Rackham Building
of the Acolytes, society for stu-
dents taking philosophy courses,
if the affair is approved by Uni-
versity officials.
Because of the previous ac-
tion of the University Lecture
Committee, Bernard Poll, Grad.,

ber said that the club was be-

IF THE meeting is okayed it
will be held at 7:30 p.m. tomor-
row in the East Lecture Roomof
the Rackham Building, when
Phillips will speak on the topic
"Some Problems of Philosophy."
Thea d hoe committee to
sponsor Phillips Thursday night
was formed by graduate stu-
dents, John Sloss, Art Cuch-
binder, Francis Crowley, and
Chuck Bisbee.
Late last night the group is-
sued a statement which said: "We
the undersigned students and fac-
ulty of the University of Michi-
gan feel that it is of the utmost
importance that Prof. Phillips and
his opponent be heard in open
debate. We therefore unite in the
sponsorship of this event at the
Club 211 on Thursday evening,
April 27 at 8:30 p.m.
We regret that the decision of
the University Lecture Committee
makes it impossible for students
to hear this debate on the campus
where it should have been held."

clined to say who had signed the
declaration, but claimed that 29
signatures had been obtained and
that two hundred would be on It

that Prof. Preston Slosson of
