MANY LETTERS from foreign

After being deciphered, many
of the letters have turned out

Sales Tax Plan
Economics professors concur-
red yesterday that the $10 billion
federal sales tax suggested by
various senators was out of the
question for a number ofureasons.
Prof. J. Phillip Wernette of
the business administration
school pointed out that to collect
a sum as large as $10 billion by
means of a sales tax would in-
volve a levy of at least 10% on
each purchase. This is a huge cut
to take out of retail sales, he said.
PROF. WERNETTE, agreeing
that the defense effort must be
paid for in taxes or inflation, felt
however that there would be bet-
ter ways of collecting the money.
Personal income taxes could be
raised, as could corporation and
excise taxes, he declared.
Prof. Richard Musgrave of
the economics department em-
phasized that such a tax would
discriminate against lowest in-
come groups. "Although taxes
on the lower and middle, as
well as higher income groups
must be raised to cut down the
inflationary pressures caused
by high consumer demand,
these taxes must strive for
U' Chess Team Places Fifth
In Intercollegiate Tournament
While the eyes of all loyal Wol-I
verine rooters were focused ont
the Pasadena pageant, the un-1
heralded University chess team1
was at the other end of the
country quietly giving an excel-t
lent account of themselves at fant
intercollegiate chess tournament7
in New York.
The four-man squad, compos-
ed of Mark Eucher, '53, Tom
Straus, '52, Steve Smale, '52, and
Russ Church, '52, wound up fifth
in a field of 16. This was actu-
ally a better showing than it
would appear, for Michigan is
usually considered a small-time
power in the chess world.1
METROPOLITAN New York, a
traditional c h ess stronghold,
swept the meet. Columbia finished
on top, while CCNY, Notre Dame
of the chess board, was a close sec-
ond and NYU placed fourth. A
suntanned Miami crew slipped
Michigan had a record for
the meet of 4 wins, 2 losses, and
a draw with champion Colum-
ALTHOUGH THE squad could-
n't match the laurels won by the
more publicized football team,
they didn't come away empty-
handed. Michigan, the East's re-
presentative in the Tournament
of Roses, was presented with the
prize for being the Westernmost
team in, the Tournament of
Knights, Kings, and Queens.
The prize was a chess book
written in Spanish for each
member of the team. The choice
of language baffled the play-
ers, who felt that the New
Yorkers might have thought
that Michigan was a foreign
The team made the New York
trip on their own, with no fan-

HE SUGGESTED instead that
an expenditure tax be used. Such
a levy was suggested by the Ad-
ministration in 1942, but received
little consideration from Congress.
This tax would be based on the
total spending by the family unit
for a certain period. Thus people
would be encouraged to save, as
savings would not be touched by
this tax. Also, it would hit direct-
ly the source of the inflation,
consumer spending, he asserted.
