Sigler Signs
New Labor,
Tax Statutes
Bills Now Law
By The Associated Press
LANSING, July 1-Two con
troversial and far-reaching meas
ures-the omnibus labor bill an
the Hittle community propert
bill-were signed into law by Gov
ernor Sigler today.
The omnibus bill, bitterly at
tacked by labor groups, require
compulsory arbitration of dispute
involving public utilities and both
private and municipal hospitals a
well as other restrictive measures
The Hittle community property
bill, backers claim, will save Mich
igan taxpayers from $100,000,000
to $200,000,000 in Federal incom
Labor Bill Requirements
The labor bill requires filing o
10-day strike notice with the Lab
or Mediation Board. A 30-day no
tice is required in public utility
disputes. Mediation must be at-
tempted before a strike is allowed
and strikes may be made legal on
ly by a majority vote of members
of a bargaining unit.
The measure outlaws jurisdic-
tional disputes and authorizes the
Libor Mediation Board to hold an
election to deternsin. the bargain-
in: agent at the re nest of ither
labor or management.
Governor's Comment
* Sigler conceded there may be
defects in the measure but terimed
it a step in the right directior
because "it furnish _s a legal meth-
od of settling disputes without
denying the right to strike and
the established rights of labo
except in the case of public util-
"Both labor and industry have
from time to time recognized the
unfairness of jurisdictional dis-
putes," said the governor. "In some
respect Michigan is pioneering in
this legislation."
The Hittle Bill permits husband
and wife to share their income ae
a device to reduce their federa
income tax total. Income sharn2
is mandatory under the bill, H. H
Warner, legal advisor to the gov-
ernor, said.

} To Present Test
Case .® Leonard
DETROIT, July 1-03)-Rich-
ard T. Leonard, vice-president of
the CIO-United Auto Workers
promised a "test" of the omnibus
labor bill signed into law by Gov-
ernor Sigler today.
Terming Sigler "the enemy of
Michigan's working millions and
the darling of the Michigan Man-
ufacturers' Association," Leonard
said labor "expected" he would
sign the measure.
The, union leader described
hearings held on the bill by Sigler
as "window-dressing," adding by
signing the bill, Gov. Sigler has
"succeeded in "out-Tafting Ohio's
Senator Taft."
IRA Terms
Callahan Bill
Vicious Law
A resolution terming the Calla-

han Bill a ". . . vicious piece of
legislation" was passed by the Ex-
ecutive Board of the Inter-Racial
Association at a meeting last week.
The text of the resolution fol-
"Governor Sigler's signing of
the Callahan Bill marks the en-
actment of the most vicious piece
of legislation in our state's his-
tory. This bill gives legal protec-
tion to those who would destroy
the democratic process in every
facet of our society.
"Ostensibly a bill to curb 'for-
eign agents,' in actuality its pur-
pose is to destroy labor unions,
civic groups, in short, any individ-
ual or group which voices opposi-
tion to the Sigler Administration.
We cannot view this unprecedent-
ed transgression upon fundament-
al human rights as anything but a
definite step towards Fascism in

May Attempt
New Tax Cut
Assent of Senate
Leaders Needed
By The Associated Press
e Speaker Martin (Rep., Mass.) said
today the House is in a mood to
pass quickly the revised $4,000,-
000,000 income tax reduction bill---
but later announced it won't be
called up if Senate Republican
j leaders should object.
n "The more I think of the idea,
the better I like it," said Martin.
This was shortly before House and
senate GOP chietans huddled to
consider the chu'cs of putting
the new bill across.
Martin told reporters House ac-
tion would leave it up to the Sen-
ate to decide whether the legisla-
tion would become law beore Con -
gress adjourns this month.
But one report from the meeting
had it that chairman Taft of Ohio
of the Senate Republican Policy
Committee and chairman Mil-
iin (Colo.) of the Senate Finance
Committee did not like the idea
of the House proceeding until a
two-thirds Senate vote is assured.
Further talks will be hel.
Martin declared a two-thirds
vote-enough to override a possible
veto-is assured in the House.
President Truman vetoed the
tax reduction measure last month.
In its revised form, only one
change has been made. The effec-
tive date was moved from July 1
to next January 1.
Mr. Truman has not indicated
his attitude toward the revised
The GOP high command of
House and Senate set a joint meet-
ing for tomorrow to map their
program for the remainder of the
session. A definite decision on what
to do about taxes probably will
come at this meeting, Martin said.
Yugoslavs Hit
Back at Critics;
Deny Activity
LAKE SUCCESS, July 1-()-
Yugoslavia struck back at the
United States today with a veiled
reference to "open intimidation"
in the Balkans and a long denial
that the Belgrade government ever-
stirred up trouble in that area.
Dr. Joza Vilfan, new Yugoslav
delegate to the United Nations
and former attorney general of
his country, hit at the United
States in an hour-long speech to
the UN Security Council and,
without naming names, he finally
"We agree that most recently
there exist in international rela-
tions methods of intimidation-
not only concealed intimidation,
as stated by the representative of
the United States-but even open
intimidation. In any event, Yugo-
slavia is the last country which
could be accused of intimidation.
But as to intimidation, the Balk-
an countries can tell much."
Warren R. Austin, United States
delegate, charged in a sharp
speech last week that Yugoslavia,
Bulgaria and Albania were caus-
ing the trouble in the Balkans. A'

majority of the UN Balkans in-'
vestigating commission already,
had decided that those three
countries were mainly responsible+
for the Balkan disorders.+
Joining Albania and Bulgaria in'
their previous denials, Vilfan told
the Security Council that:
1. The commission accusation'
that Yugoslavia supplied Greek
partisans with arms was based on
"unfounded, unverified and insig-
nificant testimony."'
2. Incidents involving aid to1

France Offers
Co mpro mise
At Conference
PARIS, July 1 - (A') -France
gave the three-power foreign mi-
isters' conference a 24-hour re-
prieve late today by offering a last-
minute compromise proposal on
European recovery which averted
for the moment, at least, a col-
lapse of the conversations.
Foreign Minister Georges Bi-
dault said the new offer represent-
ed France's final position in the
three-power efforts to implement
the aid-Europe plan of U.S. Sec-
retary of State George C. Mar-
Both Bidault and British For-
eign Secretary Ernest Bevin press-
ed for a prompt answer from Sov-
iet Foreign Minister V. M. Molo-
tov-French quarters reported--
and put the French propositions
up to Molotov on a take-it-or-
leave-it basis.
(A Moscow radio broadcast,
heard in London, quoted a Paris
dispatch from Tass, Soviet news
agency, as saying Bidault's last.
minute proposal did not differ
"from the first French proposal or
from the British plan." Molotov
turned down both plans.)
Bidault advanced his proposals
as a compr'omise measure designed
to meet Russian objections against
"interference" in national internal
affairs, and appealed to Molotov
for conciliation to,salvage the aid-
Europe conference.
British and French sources said
Molotov insisted on a full day's
recess to permit him to study the
French propositions.

Truman Says
Cut Will Cause
Loss of Taxes
WASHINGTON, July 1--(P)--
President Truman today told Con-
gress its fund cutting has damaged
federal tax collecting machinery
for years to come and will cost
the Treasury at least $400,000,000
in taxes this fiscal year.
Signing the $12,402,485,671
treasury-post office appropriation
bill, Mr. Truman issued a state-
ment deploring a $20,000,000 re-
duction in money requested for
the Internal Revenue Bureau.
Between 4,000 and 5,000 em-
ployes must be dropped and this
cannot be done "without weaken-
ing the enforcement activities of
the bureau," the President wrote.
The bill's total for the year is
$883,000,000 less than Mr. Truman
asked, but he centered his criti-
cism on what he called the "gross
inadequacy" of funds for the tax
agency, which was given $188,000,-
On learning of the President's
criticism, House Republican lead-
er Halleck, of Indiana, told re-
porters that it is "a continuation
of Mr. Truman's stubborn resis-
tance to any cuts in his padded
budget and to the cutting down of
any of the persons on the govern-
ment payroll."

Dr. Hor-nbeck will speak on (The
United States and the Netherlands
East Indies."
A graduate of the University of
Denver, Dr. Hornbeck received the
degree of Doctor of Philosophy
from the University of Wisconsin
in 1911. From 1904 to 1907 he was
a Rhodes Scholar at Oxford Uni-
versity, England.
He served as Chief of the Divi-
sion of Far Eastern Affairs in
the State Department from 1928 to
1937. From 1937 to 1944 he was
Adviser on Political Relations in
the State Department. Dr. .Horn-
beck also served as Director of the
Office of Far Eastern Affairs.
The author of several books, in-
cluding "The United States and.
the Far East-Certain Fundamen-
tals of Policy," Dr. Hornbeck is
also known for contributions to
various journals on international
law, politics and trade.
The second lecture of the series
will be given Tuesday by Dr. Rob-
in A. Humphreys who will speak
on "Policies and Tendencies in
Latin America."
Marshall Calls
Charge .False
Secretary of State Marshall today
assailed, as "fantastic" and "ma-
licious," Russian charges that his
Aid -To- Europe plan represents
dollar imperialism.
At the same time, he laid down
the rule that whatever aid this
country grants to war-stricken
nations must not be used for "self-
ish economic or political" pur-
poses but for the world's peace
and security.
This was taken as his reply to
critics who have demanded to
know what conditions this country
would attach to its assistance.
Marshall proclaimed four "de-
mands" which he said the Ameri-
can people attach to economic as-
sistance furnished foreign coun-
1. That it "shall be effectively
used for the purpose for which it
was intended" (either relief or
economic reconstruction.
2. That it "should not be ex-
pended to serve selfish economic
or political interests."
3. That it should be used "spe-
cifically to assist in economic re-
4. That it should serve the pur-
pose of " Eastor-ug hope and coni-
dence among ie people concerned
that the wivo-d will know peace
and security. He spoke in general
terms and did not specifically
mention either the Paris meeting
or Russia.

Flood Waters
Force 3,100
To Evacuate
ST. LOUIS, July 1-(P)-The
surging Mississippi River, con-
centrating its flood waters now on
Missouri and Illinois burst through
four more levees today with the
added impetus of a 12-inch rise
from torrential local rains and
forced evacuation of the towns of
Dupo and East Carondelet, Ill.,
by their combined populace of
Mayor Delmar Valine of Dupo
said 90 per cent of the women and
children and 50 per cent of the
men had left.
The towns are across the river
from the old Jefferson Barracks,
Mo., Army post immediately south
of St. Louis.
As the rising waters went over
the prairie Du Pont levee along
the Illinois Central Railroad
tracks and by-passed the Missouri
Pacific. Railroad embankment
which staved off the 1944 flood,
Dupo and East Carondelet resi-
dents worked swiftly to store their
furniture in box cars.
Army engineers said the finish
of the four-day fight to bolster the
weakened barricade might have
been different except for the over-
night rain which measured two
and one-half inches. Most of it
came in a downpour in less than
a two-hour period.

Taxies Idled
In Many Cities
Delay in Obtaining
Coverage Forseen
LANSING--(P)-Several thou-
sand taxi cabs througout Michigan
were idled today when their in-
surance coverage was cancelled
through dissolution of a Pennsyl-
vania insurance firm.
At least a 15-day delay was in
prospect before .further coverage
could be obtained.
Cabs in Grand Rapids, Benton
Harbor, Battle Creek, Slaginaw
and many other Michigan cities
were either not operating or order-
ed from the streets within 24
hours, for lack of coverage de-
manded, in most cases, under lo-
cal ordinance.

Better Police Protection Still
Needed in Willow Run Village

An anti-lynch campaign in Ann
Arbor was considered in an in-
formal meeting yesterday of rep-
resentatives of six campus and
town organizations.
Members of the American Vet-
erans Committee, Hillel Founda-
tion, Michigan Youth for Demo-
cratic Action, the National Negro
Congress, Americans for Demo-
cratic Action and the Inter-Racial
Association proposed that an Anti-
Lynch Day be declared in the city
to press for national legislation
to stop violence in the South.
A parade, a rally and newspaper
advertisements were considered as
campaign mediums. A tag day
to aid educational work in the
South directly was proposed, pro-
