"we are in grave danger" of World War III and proclaimed a swift

In a solemn broadcast from the White House, the President said
"our homes, our nation, all the things we believe in" are menaced
by Soviet Communism.

Young and Prosecutor Douglas
K. Reading each rested their re-
spective cases yesterday after-
noon, and after they present theiy
arguments this morning, the Jury
will presumably be charged.
EARLIER yesterday, Young said
that Stacy would testify in his own
behalf, but following a long af-
ternoon recess asserted that "Sta-
cy told me that he just didn't feel
up. to it."
The defense will let the case
go directly to the jury on testi-
mony offered by the state alone.
This testimony, Young claimed,
failed to prove a case.
YESTERDAY morning, Dr. O.
R. Yoder, head of the Ypsilanti
State Hospital, told the court of
examining Stacy on Oct. 10, the
morning after his arrest. He ex-
plained that Stacy was "very emo-
tional, very nervous, and there
were some tears running down his
face." But "he cooperated well
and could answer questions in a

had told him he wanted to kill

Dr. Yoder further testified that
Stacy told him "I have just signed
a confession that I burned Haven

just as easily as if I had taken a'

have remarked that he "couldn't
understand why I should do this."

But they emphasized that this
was the first general increase since
the period directly after the war.
The 10 per cent boost con-
trasted sharply with the Bureau
of Labor Statistics' Consumer
Price Index. The index shows
that since 1946, the price of liv-
ing in the United States has ris-
en by more than 25 percent.
It was not immediately clear
whether the general price boost
included top University officials.'
It was presumed, however; that it
did, and that the increase took in
everyone from the lowliest janitor
to President Ruthven himself.

Garg Returns to Roster

DURING its long reign on cam-

that would have meant death to
a less hardy journal.
Ever since 1909, when it ap-

layed their own peculiar type of
humor, cartoons, and literature
into an enduring campus institu-

when Michigan was unusually
austere, did the magazine tem-
