Toint System'
Enforcement Plan
Evaluates Offense
Extension of the new uniforn
traffic, law enforcement plan tc
Ann Arbor sometime in Augus
was announced by Police Chie:
Casper M. Enkemann yesterday
upon his return from a police
chiefs' meeting in Lansing.
Main feature of the new sys-
tem is use of a uniform traffic
ticket which evaluates the ser-
iousness of traffic offenses on a
"point system." The ticket serves
as a substitute for oral warnings
given by traffic officers for min-
or infringements.
Warning Tickets
The issuance of these "warn-
ing" tickets will require the mo-
torist to report to the violations
bureau or court, Chief Enkemanr
All violations and "traffic con-
ditions" have unit or "point" val-
ue under the new plan. The sum
of "point" values determines the
seriousness of the offense.
The plan has proved success-
ful on a trial basis in Saginaw,
Kalamazoo, Bay City, Jackson
and Battle Creek, according to
the uniform enforcement sub-

committee of the Michigan Asso-
ciation of Chiefs of Police. The
committee credits it with produc-
ing a three per cent decrease in
personal injury accidents over a
nine-month period.
Permit Check on Drivers
Chief Enkemann said the new
plan should make motorists more
conscious of their violations. In
addition, the issuance of "warn-
ing" tickets will permit addition-
al checking on whether or not the
driver has committed many kinds
of previous offenses, he said.
The plan will go into effect af-
ter details are worked out in a
meeting scheduled for Aug. 6, to
be attended by Mayor William E.

Civilian Jobs
At New Highi
Goal of 60,000,000
Surpassed by Nation
WASHINGTON, July 11--(P)-
A}The onetime "dream goal" of 60,-
000,000 civilian jobs has been at-
tained-and bettered-for t h e
first time in the nation's history.
A Census Bureau report showed
today that the number of civilians
with jobs rose to a record high of
60,055,000 in June, surpassing
even the war years.
Combining that number with
1,398,000 in the armed forces, it
puts the total number of Ameri-
cans working for "pay or profit"
at 61,453,000.
Civilian employment in June
1,730,000 over May-which had
been a record-setting month it-
self-and was 3,700,000 above
June of last year.

Unemployment a 1s o took a
jump. This was ascribed to an
inrush of students to the ranks
of job-holders or job-seekers as
the summer school recess got un-
der way.
The rise in unemployment was
600,000, lifting the total to 2,555,-
000. But even so, the census bur-
eau said, there were 10,000 fewer
unemployed than a year ago.

On Plans Awaited
By The Associated Press
United States is speeding an ini-
tial $35,000,000 shipment of ar-
tillery, ammunition, and other
military equipment to Greek
armed forces before actual recon-
struction efforts in Greece get in-
to full swing.
Dwight Griswold, chief of the
American. Economic Aid Mission,
announced the move today on the
eve of his departure for Athens.
He said the shipment is going on
an Anti-Bandit Basis' and that
maintaining internal security in
Greece is a vital part of the $300,-
000,000 enterprise.
The first munitions shipment,
already en route to American
ports for loading aboard ship, in-
cludes light mounted artillery
deemed particularly suitable for
the rugged Greek terrain, am-
munition, mules, trucks and jeeps,
and food for the Greek Army.
Griswold told a news conference
that munitions share top priority
with emergency food, of which a
first $7,000,000 shipment is cur-
rently being prepared.

ATHENS, July 11-(P)-Cap-
ture of two fortified positions in a
continuing mountain-peak battle
between the Greek Army and
guerrillas near the Albanian bor-
der was reported today by the;
Greek General Staff. A cabinet
minister said the guerillas were
trying to establish a Communist
state in the area.
A General Staff communique
said that a "great" number of
rifles, 10,000 rounds of ammuni-
tion, 15 cases of hand grenades
and 13 mortars were seized.
The Greeks said that a force
of some 4,000 guerrillas was fight-
ing on the 6,000-foot peaks of
Mount Grammos only 15 miles{
from Albania.
George Stratos, Minister of War,,
told a news conference that ano-
ther objective of the guerrillas
was to clear a way to enter Greece
for an international force of 2,-
500, which he said is at the Yugo-
slav port of Split on the Adriatic
The battle began June 27. It
was the first time the guerrillas
had put upha determined resis-
tance from behind fortified points
since April 9.

Groups Vote
WASHINGTON, July ll-(')-
Congressional Committees agreed
today on a cool $13,342,000,000 for
a variety of government expen-
ditures in the fiscal year, which
started July 1, including just over
$4,000,000,000 for "an effective
fighting Navy."
Besides funds for Uncle Sam's
sea-going forces, the total in-
cludes money for the federal farm
program and more than a score of
independent agencies, including
the Atomic Energy Commission.
It represents approximately
$621,000,000 less than President
Truman requested in his budget,
and some $502,000,000 more than
the economy-minded House ap-
proved. The sums still are subject
to change.
Far behind on appropriating
money for the new fiscal year,
which began July 1, the lawmak-
ers put on full steam ahead to
complete the job of providing the
government with operating funds
before they adjourn for a five-
months vacation late this, month.
Senator Saltonstall (Rep.,
Mass.) said the $4,000,000 granted
by a Senate-House conference
committee will allow the Navy
395,000 men and 42,000 officers.
It is more than $200,000,000 be-
low Mr. Truman's budget request
and about $176,000,000 more than
the House voted.
Committee Chairman Bridges
(Rep., N.H.) said that "after a hot
argument and a very close vote,"
the group approved a $75,000,000
increase for the atomic energy
commission over the amount
voted by the House.
