'Vote Yes' Group
Status inDoub
Dean Walter Sees 'No Good Reason'
For Ad Hoc Committee's Existence
By VIRGINIA VOSS
In a statement clarifying the status of the unrecognized "Vote
Yes" committee, Dean of Students Erich A. Walter said yesterday
"there is no good reason" for establishing the group as an ad hoc
committee.
In effect, Dean Walter's statement required that "Vote Yes"
members no longer function as a committee. However, action taken
by any of the five member organizations to publicize the anti-speaker
ban referendum April 1 and 2 was in no way barred.

THE STATUS of the "Vote Yes" group has been under question
since Wednesday when Student Legislature members attempted to
open the way for SL sponsorship of the committee if the Student
Affairs Committee required it. According to University policy backing

By The AssociatedPress
Backers of Gen. Dwight D. Eis-
enhower are turning to the Demo-
cratic South for what they say
will be the balance-of-power dele-
gate strength needed to win the
general the Republican presiden-
tial nomination.
Optimistic supporters from 11
states, saying popular southern
support is growing for Eisenhower,
met at Atlanta, Ga. yesterday to
map strategy.

SEN. ROBERT A. Taft of Ohio
currently has the inside track af-
ter intensive southern campaign-
ing and long association with GOP
leaders in the South.
Major presidential campaign-
ing rolled on in Nebraska, Wis-
consin and Illinois, all with
forthcoming primaries
Taft, stumping northern Wis-
consin, drew the biggest audience
of the state's April 1 primary cam-
paign Friday when 2,000 in Wau-
sau heard him demand sweeping
reorganization of the state de-
partment.
HAROLD E. Stassen, former
Minnesota governor seeking the
GOP nomination, visited the Fox
River valley industrial area of
Wisconsin, and Gov. Earl Warren
of California, another GOP can-
didate, moved through the south-
ern tip of the state. Warren's
place on the ballot was unsuccess-
fully protested.
On the Democratic side, Sen.
Estes Kefauver of Tennessee,
who is pitted against Sen. Rob-
bert S. Kerr of Oklahoma in the
Nebraska Democratic primary
on April 1, moved into that state
yesterday. Plagued by bad
weather, he doggedly continued
his rugged schedule.
Democratic Chairman Frank E.
McKinney said he and President
Truman-who still is silent about
whether he will seek re-election-
are in "perfect agreement and ab-
solute accord." Truman had re-
buffed McKinney for saying he
thought a Korean peace agree-
ment might make the President
decide not to run again.

Gen. Douglas MacArthur, re-
garded as a Taft supporter, in a
speech to a joint session of the
Mississippi legislature at Jack-
son, said the present adminis-
tration is leading the nation into
Communism and war in Europe.
Aside rom the presidential pic-
ture, W. Stuart Symington an-
nounced he will seek the Demo-
cratic nomination for U.S. Sena-
tor from Missouri. Republican Sen.

year. Svmington held anumber

is imperative for an ad hoc group.
In strong objection to SL's
move, Students for Democratic
Action president Ted Friedman,
'53, declared that the "Vote
Yes" group was not an ad hoe
committee. He emphasized that
the committee existed merely
to coordinate the action of the
five already recognized member
organizations.
Dean Walter's statement in ef-
fect upheld Friedman's argument.
It stated that "since the purpose
of the so-called 'Vote Yes' com-
mittee is firmly established as
promotion for a favorable vote
on an issue which already has
been placed on the student elec-
tion ballot for April 1 and 2, there
is no good reason for establish-
ing an ad hoc committee through
the Student Legislature."
THE "VOTE YES" committee is

publicans, Young Democrats, Civil
Liberties Committee, and the Stu-
dents for Democratic Action.SDA
sponsored formation of the group.
It, is attempting to promote
passage of a referendum asking
whether students oppose the
empowering of the University
Lecture Committee to restrict
any recognized campus organi-
zation in its choice of speakers,
or subjects.
Friedman last night cited Dean
Walter's decision as "an encourag-
ing recognition of the responsible
character of the five campus or-
ganizations involved."

Officials Express
'Disappointment'
By CRAWFORD YOUNG
The proposed library addition
and new medical science building
fell by the wayside in Lansing, it
was learned yesterday, as the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee omitted these items in the
capital outlays budget reported
out to the floor.
However, the committee did
recommend that $2,032,000 be ap-
propriated to complete construc-
tion on the Angell Hall Addition
and the Out-Patient Clinic.
THE $4,250,000 library expan-
sion program and the $12,500,000
medical building plans are pro-
bably dead ducks for this year.
Such cuts by the committee are
rarely reversed on the floor.
University reaction to the
committee recommendations
was, as could be expected, some
"disappointment." However, the
cuts were not unexpected, as
legislators had previously
warned that there would pro-
bably be no money to finance
any construction other than
that already underway.
Friday, the committee had
slashed $1,500,000 from the gen-
eral operating fund, while last
week, the Senate Appropriations
Committee had chopped a Uni-
versity deficiency request for
$476,000.
* * *
and the new medical building have
been kicking around for years.
They have been submitted to the
Legislature regularly since 1945
in University budgets, and have
been just as regularly cut.
The library expansion has for
the past five years been ear-
marked number one in Univer-
sity needs. But it has always
wound up taking the back seat,
at first to the state emphasis on
medical expansion, then, after
the disastrous Haven Hall fire,
to the Angell Hall addition.
Medical school officials were
slightly disturbed by the postpone-
ment of their building hopes. Ac-
cording to Wayne L. Whitaker,
secretary of the Medical School,
the faculty would be unwilling to
go on indefinitely with the pres-
ent facilities.
"Although it is not essential
that we get the new building this
year, it is needed in the near fu-
ture," he said.d-

Truman Plants
ReliefSurvey
By The Associated Press
The dark threat of new torna-
does kept the southeast on, the
alert last night as dazed and
stricken communities, recording a
dreadful toll of storm dead, found
a measure of relief on two counts.
Casualty figures revised by the
American Red Cross lowered the
cost in human life of storms that
scourged a six-state area Friday
and yesterday to 208. An earlier
count neared 250.
AND PRESIDENT Truman or-,

damage with a view of bringing
relief - to those hurt and made
homeless by the storms and of pro-
viding federal funds to aid the'
heavily damnaged communities
The President at his vacation

kept in close touch with the
flurry of deadly tornadoes and
floods which also injured more
than a thousand and left other
thousands bewildered and home-
less.
The Red Cross said it was Im-
possible to,. set a figure for the
damage done to widespread se-
tions of Arkansas, Kentucky, Ten-
nessee, Mississippi, Missouri and
Alabama.
ESTIMATES, however, already
had overspread the multi-milici
dollar mark as quick surveys were
made of leveled homes and other
structures, damaged buildings and
equipment, ravaged crops, and the
loss of liestock.
While the latest death tol of
208 brought a sharp revision
downward. of earlier counts,
some rescue workers feared that
additional dead might be found
amid wreckage and twisted de-
bris yet to be probed.
The latest addition to the
frightful list of the storm dead
came from Alabama, where three
storms within a few hours late
yesterday killed four persons, de-
molished homes, and added to
the wretched group of the home-
less.
The dead were reported at Hart-
selle in the northwestern quarter
of the state, and in the Winton
community. Also hit in Alabama'
were Jemison and Tuscaloosa
The latest roster of the dead by
states:

'HIGHLY IMPROPER'
McCarthy Rejects Vote
On Demand for Ouster

WASHINGON -(A- Sen. Mc-
Carthy (R-Wis) last night re-
jected as "highly improper' a pro-
posal that he ask for a Senate
vote on whether to continue an
inquiry into a demand he be
ousted from Congress.
McCarthy's action opened the
way for the Senate Rules Com-
mittee to move for such a vote in
the Senate-a step the committee
has said it would take if Mc-
Carthy refused to do so.
SEN. HAYDEN (D-Ariz), The
committee chairman, was not im-
mediately available for comment

Carthy committed perjury and
fraud in pressing his Communist-
in-government charges, and that
he has engaged in other activities
making him unfit to serve.
McCARTHY IN TURN has ac-
cused Benton of "smearing him,"
and he has contended that the
Rules subcommittee spent "tens of
thousands of dollars of taxpayers'
money" without authorization in
an effort to provide Democrats
with political ammunition to use
against him.
On March 5, the subcommittee
accused McCarthy of "imnugn-
