State Senate Quad Men Refuse
Group Visits IFC' Overtre

Needs Surveyed
The Senate Finance Committee
last night paid a quick visit to
k Ann Arbor for consultations on
University appropriations.
The sessions between eight
" members of the committee and a
delegation of University officials,
included a quick tour of several
campus buildings currently under
discussion in Lansing.

and anticipated, in capital outlays.

funds customarily originate in the
The committee has already
t reported out a capital outlays
bill, providing only funds for
completing the Angell Hall ad-
dition and the Out-Patient Clin-
ic. But there remained a chance
that some of the other cuts
might be restored, University of-
ficials speculated.
In particular, the need for re-
habilitating the Natural Science
Bldg.,University Hospital, and the
Architecture Bldg. came up for
discussion. Also, there was talk of
the $4,250,000 library expansion
program and $12,500,000 medical
building plans.

HOWEVER, the medical and li-
brary plans probably fall in the
category of long-range hopes, as
both have been more or less writ-
ten off for this year. The State
Legislature appears committed to
a policy of appropriating money
only to complete construction al-
ready in progress or restore exist-
ing facilities.
The committee tour included
spot checks of the Natural Sci-
ence Bldg., the Automotive Lab-
oratory and the Angell Hall Ad-

Russia Wants
Japan Terms
For Germany
MOSCOW - (P) - Diplomatic
sources said yesterday that Russia
has told the West that Germany
should get the same military deal
as Japan got in the San Francisco
Peace Treaty, even though Rus-
sia still regards that pact as il-
legal. -
Foreign Minister Andrei Vishin-
sky, in a highly unusual step, gave
his country's views Tuesday in a
half-hour oral analysis of Ameri-
can, British and French replies to
Russia's proposal that the Big
Four sign a peace treaty with a
unified Germany.
HE TALKED to diplomatic rep-
resentatives of the three western

nations after receiving the texts
of their replies, delivered jointly
to the Kremlin. Western sources
expected more detailed written
comment from Russia soon.
Vishinsky told the diplomats
Russia stands firm in rejecting
western proposals that elections
for an all-German government
be supervised by the United Na-
tions. He said such elections
should be prepared by the pres-
ently divided East and West
German governm-ents with
whatever aid is necessary from
the Big Four.

Reject Plan To Allow Dormin
Rushing During Orientation Week
With feeling running strong against fraternity " high pressuring"
the newly formed Joint Quad Council last night rejected an IFC re-
quest that fraternity representatives be permitted to enter the quads
during orientation week and the official IFM rushing period. .
Presented by IFC President Jack Smart, '52, Rushing Chairman
Pete Thorpe, '53; and Executive Committee member Jerry Helfenbein,
'52, the request centered around two .points:
1-that new quad men who request the services of IFC rushing
councillors will be allowed to meet them in residents' rooms.
2-that outside affiliates be permitted to contact rushees
during the regular rushing period in the main lounges of the quads.
The IFC leaders saw in this step a solution to the "deplorable
relations" between the fraternities and quadrangles, stressing its

ACCORDING TO Quad presi-
dent Earl Aldon, '52, the possible
alternatives of housing women

against the ideals of the Michigan

to combat the possibility of there

"Only at the thinking stage" ac-
cording to Sheil, the alternatives
would involve either Green and
Tyler Houses of East Quad being
converted into women's facilities
or the old section of East Quad

Victor Vaughn switched from a
women's residence to housing for
medical students.

THE EAST QUAD Council in
taking a stand against the propos-
al offered a substitute plan. In the
case of a necessary shifting of
women next fall, the Council sug-
gested South Quad as the logical
men's residence to be affected.
"As a housing unit of barely
a year's standing the step would
not be too damaging to its new
government," Aldon said, stress-
ing the plan's drastic affects on
"the solidarity and tradition" al-
ready established in the East
South Quadrangle president, Al
Warshawsky, '52, saw no "real ad-
vantages" in the counter-proposal,
asserting that "women would dis-
rupt South Quad government just
as much as that of East Quad."

WEST QUAD President Ted Bo-
huszewizs, '52, took a strong stand
against the proposal, asserting
that in effect, "We might as well
forget about student government
in the dorm." Bohuszewizs main-
tained that "the first two weeks
are the most crucial in the cut
throat competition between the
dorms and fraternities."
Other representatives, ques-
tioning the motives of the re-
quest felt that "if the frater-
nities are so stable a Union
meeting place would be ade-
quate for informing and obtain-
ing rushees."
Supporting the IFC proposal,
South Quad President Al War-
shawsky, '52, declared that "We
don't have to be afraid of the fra-
ternities." Warshawsky stated that
"if the quad is to be a real home to
the men they should be allowed to

the IFC proposal was neverthe-
less passed by a 23-8 vote.
After a decision Pete Thorpe
expressed his regret, stating, "It is
unfortunate that some compro-
mise could not have been reached

Taft Makes'
Strong Bid
In Primary
'Mac' Men Offer
Wisconsin Fight
MILWAUKEE --(')- W i t h
opponents shooting at him from
all sides, Sen. Robert A. Taft of
Ohio ploughed ahead yesterday in
a back-breaking campaign to sell
his brand of Republicanism to
Wisconsin voters.
Taft, apparently pacing the
race for the state's 30 Republi-
can presidential nominating del-
egates in the April 1 primary,
shrugged off fresh attacks from
supporters of former Minnesota
Gov. Harold E. Stassen and of
Gen. Douglas McArthur.
*K * *
McARTHUR has said he isn't
a candidate, but a slate headed
by Grant Ritter of Beloit is ru-
ning for him anyhow. And Ervin
Hohensee,national chairman of
the McArthur for President org-
anization, issued a statement in
Washington calling for Taft to
quit the race and help get the
nomination for the General.
Hohensee said Taft ought to
quit "kidding himself" that he .
can win the nomination and
should "save face" by coming
out for the Ritter slate.
The Ohio Senator, drawing the
largest crowds of any of the
candidates who have campaigned
here, ignored the suggestion even
if he couldn't ignore the possibil-
ity that the Ritter ticket will take
some support away from him in
a race where he hopes to come up
with 50 per cent of the vote, or1
* * :k
STASSEN, who has promised
to deliver to 'Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower half of any delegates
elected for him, flung a new
"isolationist" charge at Taft.
Eisenhower's name isn't on the
ballot here and state law does not
permit write-in votes.
Although he avoided any di-
rect attack on Taft or his pol-
icies, Gov. Earl Warren of Cal-
ifornia made a backhanded bid
for Eisenhower support in a
contest where his backers con-
tend he will run close to Taft
and might harvest out of any
week-end Eisenhower surge that
might develop in his direction.
Warren was asked by a mem-
ber of the audience after a speech
at Beloit how an Eisenhower
rooter should cast his vote to make
his sentiment felt.
"My immodesty makes me say
that any Wisconsin voter can best
serve his integrity by voting for
me," Warren replied.
Because of the nature and cir-
cumstances of the question, this
put the California Governor in
the position of bidding openly for
Eisenhower support although he
had insisted previously he was
running on his own.

Bach's Biblical narrative for
the work is taken from two great
Passions of his that we still
possess-one according to St.
John and the other to St.

Matthew. The words of Jesus
are set off from those of the
others by use of string. accom-

the proposed wage boosts "mod-

Government officials, charged
with analyzing the effects of wage
boosts on prices, differed with
both union and industry.
One official said a $4-a-ton in-

a 17/2-cent boost. This would not
take into effect industry claims
that for each dollar of wage boosts
its costs go up another dollar.

Truman Hit
Asks For Hands Off
Policy on Nomination
By The Associated Press
Sen. Estes Kefauver called on
President Truman. in effect, yes-
terday to keep hands off and let
#the nation's Democratic voters
choose their own nominee if Tru-
man himself decides not to seek
Kefauver spoke out after read-
ing reports - unconfirmed but
not denied by the White House-
that Truman has asked Gov.
Adlai Stevenson of Illinois to be-
come the adniistration's candi-
date for president.
,* * *
TRUMAN withheld any com-
ment on the purported offer to
Stevenson. Returning to Washing-
ton from his Florida vacation,;
the President told newsmen 11e
could not say anything about it
at this time.
In Omaha, where Kefauver Is
pushing his own campaign for
the Democratic presidential
nomination, he told newsmen:
"If President Truman doesn't
want to run, I think the people
will want to choose the Democratic
nominee, as they have been doing
in voicing their sentiments in the
primary elections."
* * *
ALONG WITH Kefauver's jab
at any king-making move by the
president, a well-informed Dem-
ocratic source in Washington sug-
gested that Truman may have
little say about the choice of a
successor by the time the Dem-
ocratic National Convention rolls
around in July. .
"The president may find he
will have lost complete control
of everything by that time,"
the capitol informant said.
With the White House still
silent on the subject, reports of
a Truman bid for Gov. Stevenson
to head the Democratic ticket con-
tined .to crop up.
The Chicago Daily Sun-Times
said Stevenson has "firmly de-
clined Presindent Truman's in-
vitation to seek the Democrati
presidential nomination."
THE NEWSPAPER said it had
also learned that "only a full-
blown convention draft" could
shake Stevenson's decision.
Commenting on the Sun-
Times story, Stevenson, relter-
rated that he is a candidate for
re-election as governor "and
that is all I want."
The Sun-Times noted that
Stevenson will attend the $100-a-
plate Jefferson-Jackson. Day din-
ner in Washington tomorrow -
with Truman as the top speaker
and it commented:
"That dinner could develop a
show of Stevenson enthusiasm
among the party's great and near-
'great. An enthusiasm outburst
there for Stevenson-or a word
directly from Mr. Truman-would
pour fuel on the Stevenson po-
litical fire."
Meanwhile, party officials dis-
closed that Truman will sit at the
same table with Stevenson at the
banquet. Officials insisted there
was no special significance to the
fact that Truman and Stevenson
-will dine together.
