Ike Enabled
To Establish
Tariff Cuts
niendnents Fail;
House Passage Seen
last night overwhelmingly passed
President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
foreign trade bill, empowering
him to cut American tariffs to
spur world commerce.
Approval came on a 75-13 rol
4 Icall vote.
It was a big victory for the
President on what he has called
a key measure in the effort to bol-
ster the free world against com-
munism. The Senate beat back
several attempts to alter the leg-
islation from the floor.
Goes to House Conference
The bill now goes to conference
with the House but the President
is assured of success on these ma-
jor provisions since they have been
ill approved by both branches:
1. An extension of the 21-year-
old Reciprocal Trade Agreements
La t unh0,1 58 he present,
Lact expires June 12 this year.
2. New power to cut tariffs 15
per cent in three successive 5 per
cent steps ovei the extension peri-
od. He may use these to win trade
concessions from other nations.
'This gives the President new
as tariff-cutting powers for the first
time in 10 years.
ctshe The Senate rejected a nunber
the of amendments both to add new
restrictions to the bill and to lib-
es- eralize it.
rrv Amendments Fall
Sen. Mathew M. Neely (D-WVa)
pleaded in vain for an amendment
4 which would have limited oil im-
ports to 10 per cent of domestic
consumption. Imports reached a
level of 13.6 per cent last year.

hear the beginning of what could
result in a long range rehabilita-
tion plan for "blighted districts."
Council president Prof. A. D.
Moore of the electrical engineering
department called the program to
redevelop certain districts "wholly
tentative," but addedhe may ask
the planning commission to make
a study of the areas in question at
the next council meeting, May 16.
Housing Official Tours
Prof. Moore commented follow-
ing discussions with Housing and

tive James W. Follin on Tuesday.
Follin, a 1913 University gradu-
ate, toured the city with Prof.
Moore, Mayor William E. Brown,
Jr., City Planning Director Ray C.
Eastman, and Planning Commis-
sion Chairman, John E. Swisher.
"What we have done," the
Council president said, "is to look
at the blighted area. We think well
of the plan, but the rest is far
ahead and requires much plan-
Prof. Moore indicated that a
plan must be made of the area and
proposals for rehabilitation for-
warded before the government will
approve any aid.
Major location under consider-
ation is the area bounded by Main,
Ann, Depot, and Detroit Sts.
"Mild" in Comparison
The "blight" in the area is "mild
compared to the bad areas of big
cities," Prof. Moore said, "But
blighted areas tend to get pro-
gressively worse, not better."
He said the Planning Commis-
sion may be asked to study the
area and report back to the coun-
cil. Steps then could be taken to
} obtain federal aid.
Funds Available
Follin told the four officials that
funds are available through his
department to finance planning
costs in redevelopment. The Hous-
ing official added the government
would provide two-thirds of the
t costs if and when the city's final
plan for rehabilitation was drawn
The plan would have to be car-
