in against the failing to benefit by
the ample commercial possibilities
existent during war-time.
Any policy of cooperation with
world powers by the United States
would have to result in a front of the
democratic states of the world against
other nations, Professor Preuss said.
"Italy and Germany have divorced
themselves from what is known as
'the international community'. by
their recent actions," he said.
Professor Preuss concluded with a
statement that if the people of the
United States desire peace, they shall
have to take definite steps for the

preservation of such a peace. But,
he added, the United States should
not commit itself to follow stilted
plans which might tie its hands in
the event of an emergency.
Despite any steps that may be
taken, Professor Preuss felt that the
United States will be drawn into a
major conflict when it comes. He
.urged, when the question of entry
into a conflict was at hand, a calm
weighing of the issues at hand in
order that the country should not
become a member of a war because of
economic betterment or because of
propaganda of a partisan nature.

Michigan Has
Surplus Funds
Of $3,000,000
State Had Deficit One Year
Ago Of $6,800,000; Has
Spent Less, Taxed More
LANSING, July 1..-(P)-Michigan
started the new fiscal year today with
a balance of $3,000,000 in its general
I fund-a fund that one year ago was
$6800,000 in the red.
In addition, the report of the Audi-
tor-General showed, the state high-
way fund closed the year with a cash
balance of $4,181,179. A total of $43,-
000,000 was disbursed from this fund,
apart from an estimated $10,000,000
expended by the federal government
in highway work relief projects.
The auditor general's report de-
scribed the state's financial condi-
tion as "sound."
State officials attributed the strong
treasury showing to reduced expendi-
tures and revenues that were higher
than had been expected. With few
exceptions all departments and in-
stitutions were compelled to adhere
to a budget five per cent below the
amounts the legislature had granted
them. A legislative act had given the
governor power to hold expenditures
to the revenues in sight. With this
authority Gov. Fitzgerald ordered the
five per cent cut.
The beginning of the new year
brought an end to the five per cent
cut. Gov. Fitzgerald announced in
removing it that the prices of food
and materials have advanced to a
point making it impossible for some
institutions to carry on their work
on the reduced budgets. He expected,
there would be a further increase
in revenues in the next 12 months.
The governor served notice that as
long as he continued office the state'
would adhere to his "pay as you go"
policy. He hinted, also that should
revenues drop sharply he might use
his authority to reduce budgets again.
They are apportioned on a monthly
basis. Revenue from the sales tax,
liquor taxes and the payment of de-
linquent property taxes all were
higher last year than had been ex-
pected. Final figures on their yield
will not be available until collections
for June have been reported.

to your evening paper
Y OU may not realize it, but reading a newspaper
in poor light is a hard visual task. The combina-
tion of small type on newsprint makes for poor visibility.
Good lighting can greatly improve this. For scientists
say that good light "magnifies" newspaper type .
makes it easier to read ... by increasing the visibility
of the black type and the gray-white paper.
You'll enjoy your newspaper more with good lighting.
To reduce otherwise annoying contrasts be sure to
