Farm Bill Gets
House Approval
Rturn to Truman Policy
Not Expected to Pass Senate
WASHINGTON W)-The House voted 206-201 yesterday for a re-
turn to the Truman policy of supporting basic farm crops at 90 per
cent of the parity price.
But the action may turn out to be only a legislative gesture, since
it is uncertain the Senate will consider a farm bill this year. Moreover,
even if Congress decided to abandon the present system of flexible
supports President Dwight D. Eisenhower would probably exercise
his veto.
Democratic leaders fought hard to put the House on record against
the Administration's farm policy, which provides supports ranging
/from 82% to 90 per cent of parity

Council Asks
Study of City
Parking Plan
In a special meeting last night
the City Council referred Mayor
William E. Brown's parking ex-
pansion program to the Depart-
ment of Public Works.
The depaytment will study the
plans and the property involved
and report their findings to the
City Council by Tuesday.
The Mayor's plan includes:
1) Purchase of the property on
the west side of 4th Avenue north
of Williams Street. This lot would
give ascapacity of approximately
164 cars.
2) Building two additional decks
on the Maynard Street carport.
This would give an additional ca-
pacity of approximately 220 cars.
3) Purchase of the property on
' Division Street which is known as
the "Cowie" property. This would
give a capacity of approximately
60 cars.
The Council will pass on the is-
sue by the first meeting in June.
"If the Board of Public Works
and the Council act favorably upon
the plan it can be put into opera-
tion and the construction work
could be finished before the first
of December," Mayor Brown said.
He added, "Our excess earnings
from parking facilities in only par-
tial production will run around
$150,000 and there is a definite
need for further facilities."
A resolution restricting the use
of city parksto carnivals and cir-
t cuses was also on last night's
After fifteen minutes discussion
the council moved to table the
"I can't recall a carnival or cir-
cus in Ann Arbor in fifteen or
twenty years," Mayor Brown de-
d cared.
However the council decided to
allow the Junior Chamber of Com-
merce and the Optimists Club to
fulfill commitments with carnivals
and circuses for May and June.
The permission was granted pro-
viding the insurance policies of the
two local organizations give ade-
quate protection to the city.

Tension Fills House
An air of tension - and some
confusion-filled the ouse during
final balloting on the issue.
Unofficial counts showed the bill
had been beaten before the final
result was announced. But then
about seven members arose to shift
their votes from the "No" column
to either "Aye" or "Present." Sev-
eral latecomers voted "Aye" to
help provide the margin of victory.
Before the vote was announced,
more than a dozen Democratic
supporters of the bill got up to ask
how they had been recorded. Such
tactics are sometimes used to delay
a final count until more votes are
rounded up.
Martin Asks Recount
Minority Leader Joseph R. Mar-
tin (R-Mass) jumped up and call-
ed for a recount in view of what he
described as "the unusual confu-
sion" surrounding the rollcall and
"that so many members apparent-
ly don't know how they voted." The
count was then confirmed.
It showed 185 Democrats and 21
Republicans in favor of a return
to high, rigid price supports, and
172 Republicans and 29 Demo-
crats against it.
The bill also contains a section
to raise the support floor under
milk and dairy products to 80 per
cent of parity. The present level is
75 per cent. Parity is a legal stand-
ard for fixing farm prices in re-
lation to the cost of things farmers
have to buy.
Anderson Doubts Senate OK
Sen. Clinton P. Anderson (D-
NM), former Secretary of Agri-
culture and a member of the Sen-
ate Agrielture Committee, said
the committee "might vote to re-
port the House bill but I doubt
that the Senate would pass it."
Senate supporters of the Eisen-
hower-Benson farm program are
confident Congress could not mus-
ter the two-thirds vote required to
override a presidential veto of any
change in the system.
Congress turned from rigid to
flexible supports last year after a
long fight over the change.
The administration blames high
price supports for building up the
huge surplus of farm products. It
argues farmers will be better off if
their production is hitched tighter
to the law of supply and demand.

Finish Dai's
Propose Giving
Power to Diem
SAIGON, South Viet Nam Ae)-
A foot-stamping, shouting 4,000-
man National Congress declared
by acclamation yesterday the end
of ex-Emperor Bao Dai's rule over
South Viet Nam as Chief of State.
At the same time another Con-
gress, madecup of 700 localand
provincial councilors and tribe
chiefs, demanded that Bao Dai's
powers be given now to American-
supported Premier Ngo Dini Diem,
leaving it to an elected National
Assembly to depose Bao Da.
Call For General Elections
Both congresses called for gen-
eral elections within four to six
months to choose the National As-
sembly and set up a workable gov-
ernment. They urged Diem in the
meantime to use his Nationalist
troops to crush the Binh Xuyen
rebels, his foes in South Viet
Nam's week-old civil war.
The Executive Committees of
the two congresses split over
whether to give Diem full power
to organize the elections. The Na-
tional Congress wanted the Pre-
mier to form a provisional gov-
ernment which would prepare for
the voting. The second group fav-
ored giving Diem himself full pow-
er to make these preparations.
Bao Dai To Make Choice
When all details of their form-
al resolutions have been finally
settled, Diem will forward them
to Bao Dai with a request that he
choose among them.Bao Dal, once
Emperor of the small Indochinese
state of Annam, was appointed
Chief of State of Viet Nam by the
French in 1949. He has been liv-
ing on the French Riviera more
than a year.
Brownell Hits
Bricker Bill
Brownell said yesterday the Brick-
er amendment would place "radi-
cal limitations on the traditional
sovereign powers of the United
States and on the President's au-
thority to conduct the country's
foreign affairs."
He testifed before a Senate Ju-
diciary Subcommittee in opposi-
tion to the proposed. constitution-
al amendment. He said "the suc-
cess with which our country has
dealt with both foreign and do-
mestic problems under the Consti-
tution for more than 160 years
should not be disregarded."
Among other witnesses who op-
posed the amendment to curb the
treaty-making power were Philip
B. Perlman, former solicitor gen-
eral under the Truman Adminis-
tration, and Dean Edwin N. Gris-
wold of Harvard University Law
