For More Money
Legislature Presents Three Point
Plan to Raise Requested $10,000
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
Student Legislature moved for a firmer financial foundation last
night, as a proposal to request the Board of Regents for substantially
increased funds passed unanimously.
Terming present finances "barely adequate to meet minimum
services and operating costs," the body provided three ways by which
the situation could be improved. Almost $10,000 was desired from
the University, as compared with $1,200 now received.
* * * *
FIRST, THE OFFICE of Student Affairs could raise its present
annual contribution of $1200.
Second, the money could be obtained through giving SL a
cut of about 25 cents ii the tuition, similar to the $5 the Union ,a
now receives and the $7.50 allocated to the League.
Third, a 25 cent tax could be levied on students at registration time.

A United States military plane

A day-long search was car-

It had eight hours supply of

Major overhaulings SL would be
able to effect with this higher in-

better representation of SL at stu-

supervises, improving the SL Bldg.,

A "promise of action by the
Union by its president, Gerry+

an example of the Union's al-

However, Union president John

the accusations, said that, "as far
as he was concerned, there is no
promise on the books."

They cheered him frantically at

Crowds outside his hotel hailed
him as an "enemy of the British"

drove away after a 50-minute call

TOKYO - )- General Head-
quarters said yesterday there was
considerable evidence" that ap-
proximately 6,000 U.S. soldiers cap-

victims of "death by atrocity."
The statement from Gen. Mat-
thew B. Ridgway's headquarters
emphasized, however, that "there
is no conclusive proof as to the
number of dead" among the 10,836
Americans still carried as missing.
THE ESTIMATE was 500 higher
than that made last week by Col.
James M. Hanley, chief of the U.S.
Eighth Army's war crimes section.
Both the Chinese Communist
and the North Korean radios
hotly denied Hanley's charge.
The Communists in turn accused
the United Nations command of
killing or starving to death
17,000 Red prisoners.
Hanley apparently anticipated
this. His report declared that all
Red prisoners were well cared for
in accordance with the Geneva
convention governing treatment of
prisoners of war.

WHILE public information offi-
cers would not comment, the latest
statement from the headquarters
of the supreme UN commanders

were identified and relatives were

The Allies questioned the word-
