THE ROMMELIN disclosure was
the second development of the day
bearing on the tug-of-war between
the Navy and the Air Force. Ear-
lier in the day, the Navy an-
nounced that Cedric R. Worth,
civilian Navy official who wrote
the now-discredited memo blasting
the Air Force's B-36 Superbomber
program, had quit his job over
a month ago.
The Navy's disclosure came
belatedly a few minutes after

mittee demanded that Worth be

Students Turn in Tickets
FOR DISABLED VETS-Janice Carrier, '53, left and Carol Mo-
berg, '53, turn in their tickets to Saturday's Michigan-Army game
at the Student Publications Bldg., thereby enabling two disabled
veterans to see the gridiron clash. Making out receipts is Nancy
Arnesen, assistant to the Board.
University students proved yesterday that they had
not forgotten World War II heroism by contributing 77
Army game tickets to disabled veterans in nearby hos-
Many of those who turned in their tickets obviously
desired to see the game themselves. But they realized how
much more it would mean to ,men whose time for the
last four or five years has been spent largely within hos-
The response has been encouraging. But the need
for tickets is still great.
Certainly there are more students on campus who
wish to add some cheer to the monotonous life of these
disabled vets-even at some personal sacrifice.
However, one more obstacle lies between the vet-
erans and the Army game. Student tickets are non-
transferable and can be used by the vets only with the
approval of the University Athletic Board.
The cause is worthy and the technicalities minute.
We are confident that the Board will welcome the
opportunity to do a little for those who have done so

WASHINGTON - (P) - The
House voted yesterday for a bigger
Social Security system-covering
more people, paying higher bene-
fits and to cost, after 20 years,
three times larger payroll taxes.
On the showdown, only 14 votes
were cast against it. There were
333 for it. Only two Michigan Re-
publicans were in oppositioan.
THE HOUSE vote sendsthe
measure on to the Senate. With
leaders aiming for early adjourn-
ment of this Congressional session,
the Senate plans to put off co-
sideration of the bill until the next
session, meeting in January.
The bill would:
1. Extend Old Age and Sur-
vivors Insurance to 11,000,000
more workers, raising the num-
ber covered from 35,000,000 to
2. Boost benefits by 70 per
cent or more.
3. Create new disability in-
4. Increase payroll taxes grad-
ually over the next 20 years to
three per cent on both worker
and his employer.
Some of its sponsors voiced hope
the legislation would ease the de-
mands of some labor groups for
special pension plans financed
wholly by employers.
WHEN SENDING the bill to the
House, the Ways and Means Com-
mittee said in a report that pri-
vate company-financed programs

Daily Plea for
Fourteen Student Legislators2

SL will bring a new kind of
movie to campus, "The Changing
Times" made by the Harvard Un-
dergraduate Players, a student
movie-making group. The movie,
a satire on labor-management re-
lations, is the first of its kind.

Radio, TV Damage
Grand opera in America has been damaged by the coming of
radio, television and the movies, Mary Garden, for 30 years the
toast of two continentsand the first speaker in this year's lecture
series, told a Hill Auditorium audience last night.
Operatic popularity has always gone in cycles, 'and now the
American opera has temporarily been eclipsed, Miss Garden explained.
But she was confident that this situation would not last.
She has returned from a 15-year retirement for lecture appearances.

"THE YOUNG PEOPLE of this country are wonderful, and some-
thing great must come from them. The future of the opera rests
with the youth."
Reminiscing about the days
of her own youth, when Amer-
ican and European audiences
acclaimed both her singing ac-
complishments and her remark-
able stage personality, Miss
Garden declared that she was
an "absolute operatic being."
She described her art as "oper-
Taking a page from her owna
experiences, she advised aspiring1
young singers not to make their
debuts before they are ready. She
attributed her over-night rise to
fame at her Paris debut in the
role of "Louise" to the fact that
she was 'ready with Louise."
"IF THEY had played the Star-
Spangled Banner that night, I
would have sung 'Louise'."
Miss Garden, who was born
in Scotland and raised in Amer-
ica, spent many years in France
studying French opera and
learning the language.'
"The rhythm of a language
must be learned in the native
country-you can't get it any-
where else," she said.
SPEAKING OF her retirement
in 1934, Miss Garden said that
leaving thestage is a decision
which every artist must face.
"Once you go, you can't come
back.,I hate good-bye perform-
Having lived in Scotland since
her retirement, Miss Garden was
enthusiastic about her return to
