Heinrich Von Brentano, parlia-

ing Christian Democratic Party at
Bonn, told the European consul-

among the major powers obliging
the Germans to renounce a policy
of peaceful cooperation with other
European states would be "com-

for Germany's departure from the

munity, the six-nation European
Defense Community (EDC) and
the projected Continental Politi-
cal Union.
Such a step, he said, "would iso-
late the German people and gpfe
rise to a new wave of nationalism
in Germany."
This, he added, would make Ger-
many "another parcel in the So-

dangerous phase of the world's
struggle for liberty.
Van Brentano asserted "an im-
mense majority" of all Germans
want to collaborate with the free
peoples of Europe.

constitution which would extend
the European community to the

Large Cuts
In Treasury
Budget Told
Treasury Department proposes to
cut its operating budget by 50 mil-
lion dollars-12.2 percent-and its
* payroll by 3,766 persons, a House
Appropriation Subcommittee re-
vealed yesterday.
a The subcommittee released re-
vised budget estimates showing a
decrease of 1,528 men in the Coast
Guard and 908 persons in the Bu-
reau of Internal Revenue. Both
agencies are under the Depart-
Secretary of the Treasury Hum-
phrey said the personnel cuts
would mean 4,326 fewer employes
than planned in the budget re-
commended by former President
i ,Humphrey proposed a $50,883,-
000 slash in the Truman requests

for new appropriations to meet the
Department's flexible require-
ments. Truman asked for $655,-
This would be $40,568,000 under
appropriations voted by Congress
last year, Humphrey said.
The Treasury is requesting a
total revised budget of $16,587,-
4 000,000 for the fiscal year starting
July 1, but most of this goes for
such fixed expenses as paying in-
terest on the national debt.
"To some extent," Humphrey
t said, "these reductions are predi-
cated on our ability to develop
during the next 15 months meth-
ods of accomplishing savings
which are not now clearly in sight.
It may be that further methods of
savirg can be found, and this ob-
jective will of course be vigorous-
ly pursued."
The Appropriations Subcommit-
tee, headed by Rep. Canfield (R-
s NJ), is still considering the Trea-
sury budget.

B raun Case
After six months of charges,
counter-charges and negotiations,
the long-smouldering case of Bert
Braun, '54, was finally brought to
a close yesterday as West Quad
Council president Sam Alfieri, '54
A&D, issued a statement of apol-
ogy to Braun and Michigan House.
In a statement to the Inter-
House Council judiciary commit-
tee, Alfieri, speaking for the Quad
Council, expressed "regret" at "the
hasty manner" in which Michigan
House representative Braun was
expelled from the West Quad
Council last November.
Braun was ousted from his
post for "acting to the detriment
of therCouncil." Michigan House
then withdrew its representatives
from the Council,tbut returned
them April 15, on the basis of an
agreement that Braun would re-
sign from the Council and that the
Council would publicly apologize
to Braun and Michigan House.
Recognizing that "the propri-
ety" of the expulsion is "an in-
soluble question, the Quad Coun-
cil also agreed not to oust any
of its representatives" as long
as the present constitution is in
IHC judiciary committee head
Pete Firmin, Grad., said yester-
day his committee considered that
a satisfactory settlement had been
agreed upon and that "the case
is now closed."
The West Quad Council state-
ment was the result of continued
negotiations with Michigan House
Alfieri's statement also offered
"sincere apologies to Michigan
House" and Braun for several "de-
rogatory and defamatory state-
ments" which appeared in the De-
cember 16, 1952 issue of the "Dial,"
West Quad newspaper.

Following the scrimmage, Don
Dugger, hustling junior guard,
already the recipient of. two var-

more Branoff were named the
joint winners of the Meyer W.
Morton trophy. The trophy is
annually presented to the play-
er who shows the greatest im-
provement in spring practice.
Dugger's share of the citation
was due primarily to the outstand-
ing progress he has made this
spring in mastering the rudiments
of offensive play. Strictly a defen-
sive performer last year, the 185
pound lineman's offensive im-
provement has earned him a first
string two-way guard post.

Hit in NLRB
Case Decision
National Labor Relations Board
(NLRB) said yesterday the AFL's
International Typographical Union
(ITU) seems to be still trying to
obtain illegal closed shops condi-
tions "by one device or another."
The NLRB's accusation came in
a decision holding the ITU guilty
of refusing to bargain in good faith
because it insisted during five
months ending in March, 1948, on
trying to negotiate contracts which
could be canceled on 60 days no-
THE NLRB ruling, which was
unanimous, just about rang down
the curtain on the nearly six-year-
old case. It was brought against
the ITU by the American News-
paper Publishers Association
(ANPA) in September, 1947, short-
ly after the Taft-Hartley Labor
Law went into effect.
The law bars the closed shop,
which had been a traditional
"union security" condition in the
printing industry for years. Un-
der the. closed shop a company
may employ only workers who
are union members.
In its ruling yesterday the
NLRB noted it had pointed out in
previous ITU cases that the union
was seeking to use the bargaining
process with commercial and
newspaper printing owners "as a
means of obtaining 'closed shop'

Allies Doubt
Ask Clarification
Of All Truce Aims
PANMUNJOM - () - Com-
munist truce negotiators today in-
sisted that all the, 48,500 Red pris-
oners held by the Allies would be
willing to return to their home-
lands after explanations were
made to them by their own peo-
ple following a Korean armistice.

"more than doubtful."
The Red statement was made
at today's 59-minute truce ses-
sion by the top Red negotiator,
North Korean Gen. Nam II, as
he answered some of the many
questions asked of the Commun-
ists yesterday by the senior UN
command truce delegate, Lt.
Gen. William K. Harrison.
Harrison sought amplification
of the Communists' latest proposal
for settling the balky POW ex-
change issue. The meeting ad-
journed until 9 p.m. today.
* 34 *
NAM INSISTED that all the
48,500 North Korean and Chinese
prisoners, who have said they don't
want to retun to Red territory,
would go home after they had
matters explained to them in a
neutral camp.
Nam insisted, too, that the
disposition of any prisoners still
balking after the explanations
should be decided at a political
conference to be held after a
truce is effected.
Nam said that,,differences in the
five-nation neutral commission
which would be set up under the
Red plan for handling the left-
over POWs, could be settled by
majority vote.

THE RED proposal to leave to
the neutral commission the fate
of prisoners who can't be "per-
suaded" over a four-month period
of custody is a key point in the
Red eight-point plan-one that
may draw a flat thumbs down
from the Allies.
Yesterday questions by Harrison
strongly indicated that his com-
mand would not accept such a
proposal. He said then the Red
proposal contained "no final so-
