State Defense
Budget Set at
LANSING-(IP)-The State De-
fense Council agreed yesterday to
presenta $7,126,000 budget to the
legislature in the expectation of re-
ceiving $3,149,000 more from the
federal government and $1,687,500
more from local governments.
The request is substantially less
than previous estimates of what it
would cost for Michigan's civil de-
fense program.
THE MAJOR ITEM in the pro-
posal is $3,500,000 to continue
Michigan's unique mass blood typ-
ing program. The goal is to have a
"walking blood bank" of about
3,500,000 persons.
Second largest item was a
$3,140,000 grant for fire fighting
equipment, including 250 pump-
ers, personal equipment for 15-
000 volunteer fire fighters, 250
portable gas driven pumps and
50,000 feet of fire hose.
Sixty-five of the pumpers would
be placed in critical cities which
lack sufficient modern equipment.
The rest would be assigned to mo-
bile support teams.
THE BUDGET includes 125 air
raid sirens for outstate cities and
50 large type sirens for Detroit, all
on a local matching basis.
It includes $300,000 of state
money and $231,575 of federal
money for medical supplies.
Each of 100 first aid stations
would be given equipment to
handle 60,000 casualties for 24
hours. That is the toll expected
from one atom bomb fall.
Auditor General John B. Martin,
Jr., advised the council to stimu-
late the idea that many areas will
not experience bombing and
should not bother preparing for it.
Instead, he said, those areas
should be told the facts frankly
and directed to train civil defense
crews which can aid the strategic
ares of the state in case of attack.
Brig. Gen. Clyde B. Daugherty,
Detroit Defense Director, warned
that nearly all outstate communi-
ties were concentrating on the re-
cruiting of useless air raid forces
and ignoring the development of
their available welfare facilities to
handle refugees from the bomb

Extension of Rushing
To Be Debated by IFC

A proposal to extend rushing for !
nine weeks and the fining of two
fraternities accused of dirty rush-
Ing will be considered tonight by
the IFC Executive Council.
The suggestion to continue rush -
ing on an informal basis through
the ninth week of the semester
was made by Clarence "Slug"1
Kettler, '51, Theta Chi.
* * *
KETTLER presented a petition,
endorsed by five others, to the IFC,
which agreed to consider the mat-
ter tonight..
Such an arrngement was in
effect the spring semester of
1948, principally to help several
fraternities then on social pro-
bation to get pledges.
The motive this time, according
to Kettler, would be to help fra-

ternities get as many men as pos-
sible. "The present draft uncer-
tainties have put fraternities in
need of all the men they can get."
KETTLER'S PLAN would per-
mit fraternities to have potential
pledges up for dinner or parties
any time during the first nine
weeks. Any time, the fraternity
could pledge the man simply by
sending him down to pay his two
dollar rushing fee to the IFC. If
he had already registered for rush-
ing, he would not have to pay
IFC officials were somewhat
dubious of the necessity of this
measure. Bob Vogt, 151E, IFC
president, pointed out that
houses who were unable to get.
pledge classes as large as they
desired could apply to the IFC
for exteided rushing privileges.
Also to be judged tonight are
the cases of the two houses appre-
hended in the act of violating
rushing rules by Dan Archahtgeli's
Enforcement Committee. Fines of.
$5 will be levied if the Executive
Council feels the evidence proves

It will ont apply to President

to the states in 1947.
The last amendment to the con

The Nevada senate voted 16
