House Approves
Farm Program


Nixon's Campaign Boss
Testifies He Got Legal

Soil Bank Bill Passed; Democrats
Defeat Advance Payment Plan


WASHINGTON (A)-The House passed a new farm bill yesterday
approving President Dwight D. Eisenhower's soil bank program but
denying him authority to advance farmers 500 million dollars in soil
bank benefits this year.'
Democrats denounced the advance payments plan as an attempt
to buy farm votes in the November election. In the major test of the
day, they defeated a pre-payments amendment 181-157 on almost
a straight party line vote.

BICYCLES AND STUDENTS-Owners of many bicycles talk, attempt to read an assignment, and
consider the thought that, as a result of standing in line now, they will not have to worry about
their bicycles being ticketed or impounded in the future because they bear no licenses.

License Sale To Continue Tomorrow

Approximately 2,000 students-

Although sales were heavier yes-
terday than had been anticipated,
Ann Arbor police gave tickets to
students whose bicycles did not
yet carry a license.
Student Comments
"They (the police aepartment)
must want to balance their bud-
get," Nancy Holmes, '57, said
while standing midway in a lic-
ense line.
Revenue from student's bicycles
is of no major concern to the Ann
Arbor police department, Lieu-
tenant Walter Crasny remarked.
"We are trying to find who owns
the bicycles that are brought in
here," he said.
Students Find Number
To' be eligible for a license a
bicycle must be adorned with aj
light and a bell-both in working
condition. There is no argument
when a student says, "But I bought
this paraphernalia and it was

glasses and serape mud from the

Opening the discussion will be
a brief panel presentation of Pro-
fessor Arthur M. Eastman and

the literary college.

the application is the make and

Since all applications must be

parent to several hundred stu-
dents. His signature, stamped in
the lower left-hand corner by his
office staff, makes the applica-

Lewis Comments
Looking at the bicycle situation
as a real problem, Vice-Presdient
of Student Affairs James A. Lewis
commented, "It's not just a ques-
tion of licensing, but of courtesy
and safety, too."
He said, however, that it is not

made by Israel and her Arab
neighbors in the armistice agree-

Conditions Improved
Hammarskjold told the Security
Council conditions in the Gaza
area, long a center of bloodshed
and tension, have "considerably
improved as a result of strict or-
ders" issued by the Israeli and
Egyptian governments.
"The cease-fire I have aimed at
under my mandate from the Secu-
rity Council is one governed by a
reaffirmation by the governments,
given to the United Nations, to
comply unconditionally with the
fundamental Clause of the various
armistice agreements and estab-
lishes anew the legal situation on
which the armistice regime has to
be founded."

Prof. Helen Peak of the psychology department believes that laws

Cabinet Officers Report
Economy Still Booming
WASHINGTON VP)-Tivo of President Dwight D. Eisenhower's
Cabinet officers yesterday reported the nation's economy is continuing
to boom, and questioned the need of applying anti-inflationary brakes.
Secretary of Commerce Sinclair Weeks, reporting a new record
high for personal income and a continuing high rate for the gross
national product, said he still has a "cheery optimism" about the
economic outlook despite soft spots in automobiles and home building.
Figures Show Substantial Increase
Weeks said employment figures due to come out soon will show
a substantial increase in the number of workers with jobs. The March
employment figure, issued last
month was 63,078,000.
