Tax SlashVoted
By House Group
WASHINGTON - The House Ways and Means Committee, over-
riding Democratic protests that the Eisenhower administration should
be heard first, Voted yesterday for a 10 per cent cut in individual in-
come taxes, starting June 30.
But almost immediately, Republican leaders promised that floor
action would be delayed until after May 1, to give them time to cut
federal spending before income is reduced.

Democrats said never in his-
tory had the committee taken
such critical action without even
hearing from the Treasury. Nor,
they charged, has any other ad-
ministration ever ducked a stand
on such an important decision
before the committee.
Other important action on Capi-
tol Hill occurred yesterday when
the House Appropriations Commit-
tee launched its 1953 budget-cut-
ting drive with a bang, slashing 60
per cent for a supplemental money
The biggest cut was a com-
plete turndown of a Defense De-
partment request for $1,200,000,-
000 to tide it over until theend
of. the fiscal year ending June
30.. The committee hacked $1,-
409,046,670 off of $2,313,719,590
request by all government agen-
cies, approving only $904,672,920
in new funds.
The requests for supplementary
funds originally were made by the
Truman administration and, in
some instances, were scaled down
by department heads appointed by
President Eisenhower.
There was some question wheth-
er the claimed saving resulting
from the committee's action on de-
fense funds is an actual economy
or a bookkeeping operation.
The committee didn't halt any
of the defense projects involved,
but said they should be financed
from funds already appropriated
for this fiscal year and not yet
spent. To accomplish this, it auth-
orized transfers within the Defense
Department's many budget ac-
Execution Date
Set forSpies
NEW YORK-(P) - The atom'
spy team of Julius and Ethel Ro-
senberg were condemned anew
yesterday to die in three weeks-
a judgment that is expected to
heighten the drumbeat of world-
wide propaganda against their
execution. .
Without comment, Federal
Judge Irving R. Kaufman set the
week of March 9 as the execution
period for the first American ci-
vilians ever condemned to die for
peacetime espionage.
Sing Sing prison's regular exe-
cution night is Thursday, which
falls on March 12 of that week.
The traditional hour is 11 p.m.

This is a memorable day for the University.
It is not often that the campus is honored with a visit
from the State Legislature. When 100 state senators and
representatives can afford a day off from the whirl of legis-
lative activity to tour the environs of one of the state's finest
achievements, it is an auspicious occasion.
In inspecting the University's facilities today, the
State Legislature will see much in which to take pride.
The medical expansion program, the embryonic North
campus development, the first realizations of the Phoenix
Project, the recently completed Mason-Haven Hall liter-
ary college complex, all these present a° panorama of
progress. Add to this the vast intellectual reservoir, the
world-wide academic prestige of the University, and you
have a living memorial to the State of Michigan.
But the University's reputation cannot continue to grow
without continued forethought and support from the State
Legislature. The very growth process brings myriads of prob-
lems-replacing antiquated facilities, keeping faculty salaries
apace with the cost of living, blueprinting now the direction
and aims of the University 25 or 50 years from now.
The last few years have produced an encouraging atmos-,
phere of greater cooperation and understanding between the
University and the State Legislature. President Hatcher's
address to the Legislature last March was one signal of har-
mony, the visit today is another.
The last time the entire Legislature trekked to Ann
Arbor marked the beginning of an era of expansion and
close University-Legislature liaison. We hope that this
visit augurs as well for the future of the University.
We join the administration, faculty, and student body
in welcoming the State Legislature to Ann Arbor, and trust
that a one-day respite from the state's manifold problems will
be profitable for all concerned.
