Senate Probers
Hear Evidence
From Patterson

Admits May Asked
For His Assistance

WASHINGTON, July 9-(P)-Se-
cretary of War Patterson acknow-
ledged today that he had given his
personal attention to the wartime
complaints of Illinois munitions
makers at request from Rep. May
(Dem., Ky.), but firmly denied that
he had done them "favors."
In sworn testimony before the
Senate War Investigating Com-
mittee, Patterson produced these de-
velopments in the inquiry into the in-
dustrial combine's complicated op-
erations and profits:
1. A statement that he went to
May's office at the congressman's
summons a few days after govern-
ment payments to the Erie Basin
Metal Products Company had been
"frozen" to insure recapture of ex-
cessive profits. At the Congress-
man's office, he conferred with two
men whom he said he could not iden-
tify.
2. An acknowledgement that May
had complained to him over a War
Production Board order halting work
on a contract held by Batavia Metal
Products Company, another of the
associated firms, and that he had a
subordinate look into it.
3. A declaration that he had in-
tervened with the War Manpower
Commission to obtain additional la-
bor for Batavia.
4. A flat denial that May had
asked him for, or that he had or-
dered, award of a big shell contract
to Batavia.
AVC Asks Adoption
Of Revolving Fund
(Continued from Page 1)
financed. We believe," said Staebler,
"that these funds should come from
an income tax and are advocating
a one-half to one per cent tax on
all incomes above $3,000 to finance
our proposal for the revolving fund.
"The AVC," Staebler concluded,
"feels that this is a question to be
decided by the people of the State
of Michigan and, urges- that the pro-
posal to establish a "revolving fund
and the plan to finance it by an in-
come tax be placed before the people
in the referendum this fall along
with the bonus proposal."

TESTIFIES BEFORE WAR IN-
VESTIGATORS-Thomas O'Con-
nell (above), committee investiga-
tor, testifies before Senate ' War
Investigating Committee in Wash-
ington, saying he was handed $500
in a Chicago hotel with under-
standing he would resign and with-
draw from his investigation. He
said he gave the money back next
day. His was one of the opening
blasts in testimony which has in-
volved Rep. May and other top
government officials.
Village ToHave
More in14Fall
Residence at Willow Village which
has fallen to 300 this summer will
jump to keep pace with the expected
record enrollment this September, a
University official revealed yesterday.
The University's all-veteran com-
munity near the big Willow Run air-
ports expects to house from 1,200 to
1,500 married couples and 1,700 to
1,900 single students this Fall, the
official said.
Seventy-two single women, former
WAC's and nurses, will swell the Wil-
low Village enrollment. They will be
housed in dormitory number eight,
located across from the community
center.
New University plans call for in-
auguration of an extensive recrea-
tion and athletic program with a
full time social and athletic director
for single students.
For married students and their
wives two social directors will be pro-
Vided by the University.

Non-cooperation
Plan Intensifies
Palestine Row
JERUSALEM, July 9-(P) - The
Inner Zionist Council today empow-
ered three Jewish groups to draft de-
tailed proposals for a campaign of
non-cooperation with the Palestine
government until arrested Jewish
leaders are freed from detention and
operations against Palestine Jews are
suspended..
At the same time, the Arab High-
er Committee weighed its own pro-
posals for non-cooperation with the
British.
The Inner Zionist Council gave
the go-ahead signal to its own presi-
dium, to the Jewish Agency's execu-
tive committee and to the National
Council of Palestine Jews to work
out plans for non-cooperation.
Dr. Chaim Weizman, President of
the World Zionist Organization, who
said Great Britain had "missed its
chance" to restore peace and that
the Jews now would "never give up
their arms," today visited Moshe
Shertok and other arrested Jewish
Agency members in Latrun detention
camp. The Jewish leaders were in-
terned June 29 following two weeks
of disorders throughout the Holy
Land.
A member of the Arab Higher Com-
mittee who declined to be quoted by
name said the committee already had
drawn up a program to tighten the
Arab boycott of Jewish goods and to
use non-cooperation as a "prelim-
inary weapon" in opposition to con-
tinued Jewish immigration.
Palestine remained outwardly quiet.

Clover To Visit
Guatemala City
Elzada U. Clover, assistant profes-
sor of botany and assistant curator
in the Botanical Gardens at the Uni-
versity, will leave today for Guate-
mala City, Guatemala, where she
will carry on an ecological study of
cacti.
While in Guatemala, Prof. Clover
will make her headquarters in Guate-
mala City, making side-trips on
horseback to the smaller villages in
the desert area, which are said to
offer some fine cactus specimens. She
will send the specimens she collects
back to the University Herbarium
and the Botanical Gardens.
Prof. Clover's plans to join a Seven
Seas Expedition were changed when
the schooner was damaged at Hono-
lulu by the recent tdial wave.
In The Good Old Days
In 1933 The Daily conducted a
bitter campaign protesting against
the high cost of haircuts at the
Union. The price charged was a phe-
nomenal forty-five cents.

Six 'U' Students Join
Food Relief Project
Fellows from two University stu-
dent church guilds are joining college
students from all over the country
to serve as cattle tenders on live-
stock ships being sent to Europe by
the Brethern Heifer Project com-
mittee.
The students are Harvey Ander-
son of the Roger Williams Guild of
the First Baptist Church, and Gale
Potee, Bruce Morrison, and Bruce
Edwards of the Congregational Dis-
ciples Guild. Other students who
have signed for the service are
Dwight Walsh, and Buck Springer.
Members of the guilds have contribu-
ted money to buy heifers.
Anderson graduated from the Uni-
versity as a pre-medical student and
will enter Vanderbilt University next
year. Potee graduated from the Uni-
versity in 1945, while Edwards and
Morrison, Walsh and Springer are
undergraduates.
The heifer propect will provide
cattle for starving Europe, since pro-
tein foods and milk are lacking in
the diets of the Europeans after
thousands of dairy cattle were killed
during the war.

Bloom Supports British Loan,
Disassociates Palestine Question

WASHINGTON, July 9- (/P) -
Chairman Bloom (Dem., N.Y.) of the
House Foreign Affairs Committee
appealed to the House today to ap-
prove the $3,750,000,000 British loan,
declaring "this is not a Jewish ques-
tion. It has nothing to do with the
Jewish question in Palestine.,"
"I'm voting as an American and
not as a Jew," he declared, "I in-
tend to vote for the British loan."
In a move designed to offset pos-
sible loss of House votes for the loan,
because of British handling of the
Jewish problem, Bloom had the House
Clerk read a statement by RabbiI
SVETERANS
NOT ES
Veterans in school under the GI
Bill of Rights can receive vacation
subsistence allowances in propor-
tion to their length of time in school,
according to W. L. Wallace of the
local VA office.
Wallace explained that veterans
vacation allowances are earned at
the rate of two and a half days per
month of time in training, the sane
as furlough or leave- time was ac-
crued in the service. Veterans who
have been in school less than a full
year, therefore will not be eligible
for a full month's vacation allow-
ance this summer.
Wallace warned, that vacation al-
lowances count against the total eli-
gibility, and suggested that veter-
ans who are planning to use all of
their eligible time for schooling fore-
go the vacation allowance.

Stephen S. Wise, a leader of the
Zionist movement. Wise said:
"Whatever the wrong doing of the
British Government in Palestine
cannot alter my conviction that the
British loan is imperatively needed."
Both Democratic and- Republican
House leaders predicted, privately
that the loan will be approved al-
though probably by a narrow mar-
gin,
Supporters of the credit greeted
with satisfaction the defeat of Sena-
tor Henrik Shipstead, foe of the loan,
by Gov. Edward J. Thye in the Min-
nesota Republican primary. Rep. Buf-
fett (Rep., Neb.), a leader of the
loan opposition, told reporters, how-
ever, thftt he doubted the Minnesota
result would change any House votes,
Eugene Meyer, President of the In-
ternational Bank, issued a state-
ment, meanwhile, declaring that the
loan "is a vital part of a greater
plan in which the monetary fund,
the bank and other organizations
also were to play their parts."

Frank Murphy Asked To
Mediate Philippine Fight
MANILA, July 9-({P)-Less than
a week after establishment of the
New Philippine Republic an appeal
was made today for U.S. Supreme
Court Justice Frank Murphy to in-
tercede in the conflict between armed
peasants and military police in cent-
ral Luzon which has accounted for
159 deaths thus far.
Luis Taruc, leader of the Hukbal-
ahap Agarian Reform Movement,
said land owners were pushing the
Roxas government toward a policy
of "bloody subjugation" of the
peasants.
He asked that an impartial inves-
tigation be undertaken to determine
who was the true agressor in the
fighting, and suggested Murphy as
mediator.
