Israel Moves
To Holy City
JERUSALEM - (R) - Israel
brought her government to Jeru-
salem yesterday in defiance of a
United Nations order for inter-
national rule over the holy city.
Premier David Ben-Gurion de-.
Glared "We have entered upon
the greatest political struggle in
the history of our people."
"Israel is aligned against the
whole world," he said.
THE PREMIER moved his min-
istry to this city from Tel Aviv
following approval by the Parlia-
ment (Knesset) of a decision to
speed the transfer of government
offices to Jerusalem.
He made his pronouncement
upon the gravity of the situation

city from Mayor Daniel Auster.
The blue and white flag of the

s- quarter of a mile from the old
walled city still patrolled by the
Arab legionnaires of HashemYite
BEN-GURION took offices in
the hotel.
"Today's courageous move by
the Israeli goverfiment comes as a
great relief," the Palestine Post
said editorially, "But it is only
the first step and it will need de-
termined and well considered ac-
tion in the future to protect it
against all outside intervention."
Tribute Paid
To Muyskens
By Students
Prof. John H. Muyskens of the

night before students and friends,
who had. gathered to pay tribute
to the distinguished bio-linguist
for his work and the help he has
.given them.
Words must be lived with and
studied carefully if real meaning
x is to be conveyed through them
Prof. Muyskens advised in his
speech, a lecture of highlights
from his'famous talk "Beware of
the Dog."
AT THE conclusion of the pro-
gram he was presented with a
4 tae recorder and a wiring of
his talk.
"Beware of the Dog," a lec-
ture in semantics, has been giv-
en by Prof. Muyskens since 1910
in talks all over the country.
His talk was chiefly a recital
of personal experiences and ex-
amples, which he feels carry
across meaning more effectively

foreign "-isms" that have crept
into this country recently. In our
attempt to take them over we fre-
quently fail to comprehend heir
whole meaning, which only results
in friction and misunderstanding,
he declared.e

The winners played aggressive
defensive ball in holding the fast-
breaking Bulldogs to their lowest
score of the season.
Ralph "Buckshot" O'Brien,I
Butler forward-guard lived up
to advance notices by notching
20 points, 15 of them in the sec-
ond half, to pace the scorers.
Michigan's Chuck Murray
checked the diminutive shot-
maker in the opening stanza,
but O'Brien found the range in
the final half largely against
substitutes. Murray also con-
tributed seven of eight free
throws and a fielder for nine
Mack Suprunowicz paced a
Wolverine offense which took
command at the opening gun and
was never headed. "Supy" count-
ed, eight fielders and two free
throws for 18 markers, rising to
the heights with three straight
one-handers to check the Bull-
dogs' only second half bid.

JIM SKALA, Leo VanderKuy
and Don McIntosh all played the
pivot position for a time and each
tossed in 12 points. McIntosh was
especially clever around the mid-
dle with the six-foot-five Vander-
Kuy dominating the board for
Showing promise of things to
come, sophomore Skala proved
an effective mate for Supruno-
wicz at forward with his drive-
ins and clever passing, and per-
formed ably at center when
called upon.
Meshing a long one-hander for
his only field goal, Hal "Lefty"
Morrill put the Wolverines out in
front to stay in the first minute
of play. Butler kept it close until
double baskets by Suprunowicz
and McIntosh gave Michigan a
16-6 lead at the 10-minute mark.
Four dogshots by Vander-
Kuy along with steady scoring by
the starting five widened the mar-
gin to an impressive 40-16 at
Butler came out strong in the
second stanza, narrowing the
lead to 16 points before Supru-
nowicz' spree iced the verdict.

Drop from
Last Request
New 'U' Hospital
Clinic Planned
State Budget Office officials yes-
terday revealed that the University
will seek a $19,915,000 appropria-
tion from the Legislature for oper-
ating expensesnand capital-Im-
provements during the 1950-51 fis-
cal year, which begins next July 1.
This represents a drop of $1,440,-
000 from the amount requested last
December by University officials
for the current fiscal year.
Included in the $19,915,000 fig-
ure is a $13,870,000 operating ex-
penses budget and $6,045,000 for
capital improvements.
ported yesterday that Frank M.
Landers, acting state budget direc-
tor, and possibly Robert F. Stead-
man, state comptroller, would meet
with University officials in Lansing,
"sometime next week" to study de-
tails of the appropriation request.

huss confirmed details of the
budget request but said the time
of the meeting had not been dis-'
closed to him.

POINTING OUT that this year's
operating budget request is well
over $2,000,000 more than that
granted by the Legislature for the
current fiscal year, Landers said
the. increase was based on pay in-
creases for University staff mem-
bers and for additions to the fac-
"The University has been try-
ing to adjust its student-teacher
ratio to compare more favorably
with that of other major colleges
of the nation," he explained.
"The ratio now is' one faculty
member for every 18 students. the
big Eastern colleges have a ratio
of one professor for every eight to
12 students."

INCLUDED in the $6,045,000 re-'
quest for capital improvements is
a $2,800,000 appropriation for a
University Hospital Out-Patient
Clinic for the medical school. Plans
and specifications for this building
were drawn up this year.
Another $2,700,000 request is
for an addition to the General
Library. University officials
sought an appropriation of $,-
500,000 for this same purpose
last year but were turned down
by the Legislature.

asked for 1950-51 capital improve
ments is made up of requests for
