Secretary Reports On New German
Measures Worked Out By Big Three
WASHINGTON - (W) - Returning from a week-long visit to
Europe, Secretary of State Dean Acheson yesterday expressed himself
as being highly pleased with the results of his mission.
He reported yesterday to President Truman on new German
measures worked out by the Big Three foreign ministers in Paris.

HIS TWO-DAY conference with foreign ministers Bevin of
Britain and Schuman of France, he said, was "entirely harmonious"

Places Phi Chii
On Probation
The Univesity Sub-committee
on Discipline yesterday fined Phi
Chi medical fraternity $200 and
placed it on probation for the rest
of the semester, for holding a par-
ty at which liquor was consumed.
Dean of Students Erich A. Wal-
ter defended the committee's ac-
tions in this and other cases,
claiming it acted "in the interests
of the students."
DEAN WALTER'S statement
said. "The University's policy in
regard to liquor is strict, and we
attempt to enforce it in the inter-

views on the situation in West
Shortly before his arrival, how-
ever, Chancellor Conrad Adenauer
announced at Frankfurt that the
three Western Powers had agreed
to slow down dismantling of key
German industries and laid out
other measures which would have
the effect of building up the Ger-
man economy and giving the new
German state a greater voice in its
internal and international affairs.
* * *
ADENAUER said that the three
Western governments had agreed
to invite Germany into many in-
ternational organizations, to per-
mit a bigger German merchant
fleet, to allow German trade con-
sulates in foreign countries and
to study the problem of easing the
consequences of the continued ex-
istence of a state of war between
Germany and the Western allies.
At his regular weekly news
conference this morning, Ache-
son is expected to discuss his
European mission and go into
other matters awaiting his at-
tention here-notably Far East-
ern questions.
Acheson was met at the airport
by President Truman and a score
of top State Department officials
and western European ambassa-
dors when his four engined special
plane, a double decked stratocruis-
er, set down at 1:30 p.m.

LOS ANGELES - (A) - James
Roosevelt, the late FDR's eldest
son, last night announced his can-

Republican nominations for Gov-

At the same time he made a
move for White House support.
HE SAID he will do his best to
bring President Truman's "fair
deal" to California. Asked at a
press conference if that meant
that he approved of the "Fair
Deal" program in its entirety,
Roosevelt said he did.
He also told the press confer-
ence that while he disapproved
of the California law which per-
mits a candidate to file for the
nomination by more than one
party, he will do so.
Thus he will be running not
only as a Democrat-with the par-
ty his father restored to power in
1932-but as a Republican.

Blasts Entire

16 Million Dollar
Deficit Forseen
WASHINGTON - (') - Senator
Taft (R-Ohio) said yesterday that
adoption of President Truman's
program next year would add more.
than $16,000,000,000 to the federal
deficit and lead America to "stag
nation and austerity."
Taft attacked "the entire Tru-
man program" in a statement from
his office here. The Ohioan, chair-
man of the Senate Republican
policy committee, was in his home
state pressing his campaign for
reelection in 1950.
* * *
"WE FACE a deficit of $5% bil-
lion," Taft said. "Yet the Truman
program would add to that $6
billion for compulsory medicine,
$6 billion for the Brannan plan,
$4 billion for UMT and other bil-
lions for services of all kinds."
His references were to the sys-
tem of compulsory health insur-
ance frequently advocated by
the President, to the "production
payment" plan for keeping up
farmers' income sponsored by
Secretary of Agriculture Bran-
nan, and to a long-pending pro-
posal for universal military
training - "UMT."
Taft asked in his statement:
"How can we increase our fed-
eral tax 50 per cent without chok-
ing the development of all busi-
ness expansion and creating vast
PRESIDENT Truman, Taft con-
tinued, argues that anybody who
"objects to the expense of any of
his plans is a reactionary."
Disputing this, Taft said op-
ponents "are convinced that only
a continuation of our present
system of liberty and particular-
ly liberty from government con-
trols can reach the goals of the
Utopia which he describes."
"The Truman program based on
dictation by government of the
daily lies of the American peo-
ple can only turn America back to
stagnation and austerity," Taft

anyone who "reads President
Truman's speech in Minneapolis
on November 3 must realize that
he intends in 1950 to ask for a
Congress which will adopt the en-
tire Truman program."

Varied Platforms to Highlight
Approaching Student Elections

Platforms advocating everything
from more appropriations from
the University to the Student Leg-
islature to no hours for women are
carrying candidates forward to the
fateful Monday and Tuesday of
student elections.
More than 100 students are
fighting their way into less than 40
positions available on SL, J-Hop
Committee, and Boards in Control
of Student Publications and In-
tercollegiate Athletics.

the removal of the liquor ban,
more cooperation and correlation
within SL itself and representation
of different campus councils in
Student Legislature.
As a service to the students,
the Legislature,. representing
400 students for each member,
has come a long way in the three
short years of its existence.
At the beginning of its fourth
year last September, the Legisla-
ture was responsible for block
seating at football games. A dele-
gation was appointed which per-
suaded the Athletic Administra-
tion to drop its "You can't sit with
your friends" policy at the games.
* * *
ONE OF THE biggest recent SL
accomplishments has been the
Michigan Plan. Through SL's
original measure and further agi-
tation, the University Student Af-
fairs Committee passed a resolu-
tion to bar all future organizations
from campus if they had discrim-

ination clauses in their constitu-
The idea supports an educa-
tidinal process by which new
non- discriminatory organiza-
tions would help teach others to
follow suit.

of getting different racial and re-
ligious groups, as well as campus
organizations, together in a step
toward further elimination of dis-

ing. The long weekend cannot

hopes to change things next
Another innovation of the Leg-
islature this year is to control and
approve signs and sign-carriers at
football halftimes, to prevent il-
legal or unattractive signs from
swarming all over the field.

SL candidates. Election officers
