hiSummer
Boost Needed To
Keep Standards
By DONNA HENDLEMAN
Residence hall rates will jump
,upward again this summer for
the second time in two years,
Francis C. Shiel, manager of Uni-
versity Service Enterprises, an-
nounced yesterday.
The increase, which will amount
to $24 a year for women and $34
ffor men, will bring the rates for
double rooms in the dorms to $650
for the "fall and spring semesters
of the 1952-53 school year:
t
BROKEN DOWN, the figures'
represent a 4 per cent increase, or
10 cents a day, for women and a
511 per cent increase, or 15 cents
a day, 'for men.
The higher figure for men will
equalize rates, Since Alice Lloyd
Hall was completed in 1949
women have been paying more
per year than men.
Made necessary by rising costs
coupled with a falling enrollment,
the raise is necessary if prevailing
standards in the dormitories are
to be maintained, Shiel said.
COSTS ROSE considerably in
January when University employes
were given a six per cent raise,
he pointed out. And a drop in the
number of residents which has im-
proved housing standards has par-
adoxically aggravated the situa-
tion.
"'Although housing conditions
are now nearly normal," Shiel ex-
plained, "the drop in the number1
of students has brought with itl
real. problems. The decrease in
numbers has not been large enough z
to bring with it any significant
reduction in, operating expenses,
as compared to the loss of reve-
nue.'"
The raise could not be de-t
ferred, Shiel said, without en-s
dangering the financial positiont
of the residence halls. Bond ob-
ligations are owned on all thee
big dorms, and they are operat-
ing on a self-liquidating basis,f
he explained.
The increase is official, so far,a
for only the Regular Universityc
dormitories. But it is expected
that Martha Cook and the Law-
yer's Club will follow suit. They f
usually gear their rates to thosep
of the other dormitories, Shielv
pointed out.n
Despite the looming raise, the b
University dormitory rates are
still cheaper than those of most
of the Big Ten schools. As the list
now stands, only Michigan State,
which does not provide the same,
standard of service, and the Uni-;
versity of Minnesota have rates;
lower than the University's, ac-
cording to Shiel. Iti

Lattimore
Q Uiz Seek
Truman Aid
WASHINGTON-W)P- Senators
probing the Administration's Far
Eastern policy. decided yesterday
to ask President Truman for more
information about an interview he
had with Owen Lattimore July 10,
1945.
Lattimore, a= wartime consulant
t~o the State, Department, has told
the Senate's Internal Security
subcommittee that in effect he
tried to get Mr. Truman to give
American military aid to the
Chinese Reds in 1945.
He testified last week that in
memoranda to the President he
favored using any Chinese forces
which would fight the Japanese
and thereby diminish American
casualties: in the Pacific war.
A WHITE HOUSE interview
followed, but Lattimore, now a
professor at John Hopkins Uni-
versity, said he stayed only three
minutes and was given a "polite
brushoff."
Lattimore acknowledged that
the Truman Administration's
postwar China policy showed "a
line of thought" similar to his
own views but he repudiated any
suggestion that he was respon-
sible for it.,
Sen. Ferguson (R.-Mich.) re-
turned to the subject yesterday and
moved that the subcommittee ask
Mlr. Truman and the State De-
partment or more details about
the White House visit. Ferguson
aid he would like to know parti-
cularly how long Lattimore spent
with the President.
MR. TRUMAN would not be
)bliged to furnish the informa-
tion unless he wished to.
Today was the eleventh spent by
attimore under committee cross-
sxamination.
Lattimore spent about two hours
in the stand before chairman Mc-
'arran (D.-Nev.) adjourned the
tearing indefinitely. Lattimore
ras told he will be advised when
;return for further questioning.

WASHINGTON -- (A) -- The
douse Appropriations Committee
rterday called for a 10 per cent
it in the Administration's seven-
Lllion-dollar budget for indepen-
lnt federal agencies in the fiscal
,ar starting July 1.

Seven of the 15 men that carry
the hopes for the Wolverines of
holding the title were members
of last year's championship aggre-
gation. Five, of these are now
seniors, and tonight's "big" game
will be their last in Maize and
Blue colors.
AMONG. THESE five are cen-
ters. Earl Keyes and Bob Heath-
cott, defenseman Graham Cragg
and forwards Paul Pelow and Ed-
die May.
Captain Keyes has made few
headlines but was the second
highest team scorer this season.

Special to The Daily
COLORADO SPRINGS--De-
fenseman Steve Leolich tallied
two unassisted goals in the final
period here last night to beat
Yale, 4-3, and to move Colo-
rado College into tonight's
NCAA championship hockey
game against Michigan.
Yale will meet St. Lawrence
this afternoon in the consola-
tion playoffs.
All' of Yale's goals came in
the first six minutes of the
game. The Tigers tied the Elis
with the first of Leolich's pay-
off tallies and then went ahead
on his second score.
Owen Brandt, leading Colo-
rado College scorer, left the
game in the second period with
a neck injury after scoring Col-
orado's first goal. He will prob-
ably be unable to play in to-
night's contest.
His aggressiveness on both of-
fense and defense made him
valuable during Michigan power
plays as an extra forward, or
when the Wolverines were forced
to kill a penalty disadvantage.
He centers a line of Doug Mul-
len (top Wolverine goal getter)
and Ron Martinson, who are both
first year men in collegiate hockey.
He also topped the team in assists
with 29.

Cut Leaves -
Pay Boosts
Unaffected,
U' Pins Hopes
On Final Draft
By CRAWFORD YOUNQ
University budgeters got a serY
ous jolt yesterday, as the Senate
Appropriations Committee ignored
the $476,000 'U' deficiency request
in reporting out a drastically
slashed deficiency appropriations,
bill.
Gov. Williams' original $10,500-"
000 request was trimmed by more
than half, as an outlay of only
$4,672,347 was' proposed by the
committee in the omnibus defi- '
ciency bill.
THE UNIVERSITY request was,
to cover a six per cent cost-of-
living pay raise given to Unver-.
sity emaployees last year.
University Vice - President
MNrvin L. Niehuss declared be
was "naturally disappointed"
that the request had been Ig-
nored by the committee in its
bill.
"However, we still hope that the
eut will be restored before the bill
is finally passed," he added.
s * s
NIEHUSS declined to comment
on how the University would make
up the def icit if the Legislature
fails to change the bill. However,.
the committee recommended thati
the state agencies whose requests
were denied "absorb" the deficit
over the next 16 months.
University officials pointed
out that this is easier said than
done.
The committee' suggested the
disappointed agencies could cut
personnel, not fill vacancies, or
ignore step increases In the vari-
ous classifications.3
* a M
HOWEVER, these steps seem
more applicable to the non-ed~
cational institutions affected by \
the cut than to colleges. Besides'
the University, Michigan State
College, the education colleges,
and Michigan College of Mines
were denied funds to cover sim-
lar pay boosts.
The final decision would be
up to the Board of Regents, Nie-
huss indicated. But probably no
immediate action would be
taken.
Two things appear fairly cer-
tain, though.
1) The deficit will not be made
up from funds appropriated for
new buildings. The State Legisla-
ture specifically earmarks moneyT
for capital outlays,then lumpstle'
rest of the appropriation intoa
general operating fund. These
funds for buildings have always'
been treated separately by the
University, and it is highly un-
likely that budget officials would -
dip into these monevis now.
2) The pay scale will remain
the same. There is no prospect
that the University will attempt
to make the saving by reneging
on the pay boost.
Some other state agencies wll
be forced, if the Legislature passes
the committee version of the bill,
to lay off a number of employes."
University officials declined com-
ment on whether this is a possi-
bility here.
In the final analysis, failure to'
obtain the money, although seri-
ous, is not catastrophic. The deficit
amounts to only about two pers

tive work yesterday to try to find a
~formula for ending the work arms
race.
Cohen had presented a work
plan urging the 12-nation group
to take as its first task the set-
ting up of a system whereby all
countries would reveal how many
weapons -- including atomic
bombs -- they have and let those
figures be checked by the UN.'
Malik -countered by demanding
that the commission begin its work
by voting for a "substantial" re-
duction in the armed forces of the
Big Five-Russia, China, the Unit-
ed States, Britain and France-
and immediate prohibition of the
atomic weapon. He said that, once
the commission had agreed in
principle on this, there would be
no trouble in getting all countries
to give out the information the
U.S. plan calls for.
After Sir Gladwyn Jebb of Brit-
ain and Jules Moch of France
spoke in support of the American
proposal, Malik unleashed his
germ barrage in what was widely
regarded here as a propaganda
move to try to bury the American
