Invite Russia
Britishl ledgeAid
To Marshall Plan
By The Associated Press
PARIS July 12-Britain, France
and Italy told the opening ses-
sions of the Marshall Plan Con-
ference today that Russia and the
absent eastern European nations
still would be welcome to hel
in a continent-wide effort to re-
build a war-shattered economy.
Moreover, British foreign secre-
tary Ernest Bevin declared the
conference was not intended tc
set up a permanent organization
rivalling the United Nations. He
said the conference members re-
mained loyal to the UN and want-
ed to work in the fullest coopera-
tion with appropriate UN organs.
Pledged Support
Bevin also pledged the resources
of the British Commonwealth, in-
sofar as the British government
can influence them, to the task of
European rehabilitation.
Statesmen from 16 European
nations met for an hour in the
gilded grand banquet hall of the
French Foreign Ministry. They
elected Bevin presiding officer
and named a working committee
which immediately began a study
of the British-French draft for
European recovery with Ameri-
can aid.
The conference was called by
Britain and France after Russia
declined to have anything to do
with the Marshall plan, enunciat-
ed by the United States Secre-
tary of State at Harvard Univer-
sity June 5.
Envisions Help
The plan, briefly, envisions
American aid to Europe after the
nations of Europe have decided
how far they can help themselves
and just what help they will need
from the United States.
Soviet Russia charged that this
,would mean interference in the
independence of the European
countries and she held aloof with
eight neighbors. However, the Red
hammer and sickle flag of the
Soviet and the banners of the ab-
sent countries flew in the con-
ference hall with those of the del-
egates present. Observers saw this
as emphasis on the conference
feeling that the door always
would be open to those desiring to

already limited in the past aca-
demic year.
Prof. Clarence D. Thorpe, act-
ing chairman of the English de-
partment, struck the most optim-
istic note. "We expect the adjust-
ment this fall will be almost im-
perceptible," he said. Having
weathered huge jumps in the past,
Prof. Thorpe explained, the de-
partment expects fWture .increases
to cause relatively little trouble.
The economics *department,
which added many sections in be-
ginning courses last year, indicat-
ed that further expansion could
be made satisfactorily.
Noon Labs
Noon labs will be introduced in
the geology department for the
first time next fall. The action
will be taken to accommodate ad-
ditional students expected to en-
roll after the transfer of psy-
chology 31 from group two to
group three credit. At the present
time the department does not ex-
pect to set a limit on registration.
The sociology and geography
departments have experienced
larger classes but expect "no par-
ticular effect" from the hike in
enrollment. Cassroom space for
history and phiosophy students is
no probem as yet, those depart-
ments reported.
More Room
Prof. James E. Dunlap, chair-
man of the classical studies de-
partment, said there is room for
more students although "we have
had to relinquish rooms specially
equipped to suit our needs to
larger departments." Another
small department, oriental lan-
guages, is using office space for
classes, but expects to provide for
all registrants.
Although "quite crowded" last
semester, the botany, anthropol-
ogy, journalism and romance lan-
guagesdepartments do not ex-
pect to turn away any students
next fall.
The physics department will
take over several rooms in the
East Engineering Building this
fall for classes. A more serious
problem is a shortage of compe-

Shots in Subway
By The Associated Press
wild pistol shots were fired at
Senator Bricker (Rep., Ohio), in
the Senate subway today and a
few hours later officers arrested
a suspect they described as a for-
mer member of the capitol police
Senate Sergeant at Arms Ed-
ward L. McGinnis identified the
suspect as William L. Kaiser. The
arrest was madeby metropolitan
police in the northwest part of
the city.
Kaiser told reporters with a
shrug of his shoulders and a wry'

Caused Turmoil
The shooting set the Capitol in
a turmoil during the midst of an
unusual Saturday session of the
Senate. It took place in the sub-
way linking the Capitol with the
Senate Office Building.
Bricker was carried to safety by
the little monorail subway car as
it rounded a bend out of the
shooter's range.
The silver -haired 1944 Repub-
lican vice-presidential candidate
and ancompanion crouched be-
hind one of the car's seats as it
slowly got underway.
Bricker, apparently undisturb-
e& told reporters that Kaiser
blamed him for losses in a build-
ing and loan association at Col-
umbus about 15 years ago.
Police Appointee
Records show that Kaiser was
a capitol police appointee of his
predecessor, Senator Huffman
(Dem., Ohio). Bricker told a ques-
tioner that he had nothing to do
with Kaiser losing this job last
Kaiser was arrested by metro-
politan police several hours after
the shooting and many blocks
from the capitol, at a Massachu-
setts Avenue address. Police at

night Senate session tonight, and
final action was put off until
A vote then--with passage as-
sured-was arranged in an in-
formal gentlemen's agreement be-
tween leaders of Democratic and
Republican parties.

turned down such an agree-
ment, but accepted it later af-
ter Democratic Leader Barkley
of Kentucky told them he be-
lieved President Truman will
veto the measure promptly
without waiting the usual ten
With the informal agreement
accepted, the Senate recessed at
7:49 p.m. Eastern Standard Time
to noon Monday.
The decision came after nearly
ten hours of debate during which
eight amendments by Senator
Morse (Rep., Ore.), includingone
to postpone the effect of the tax
cut for at least a year past next
Jan. 1, were turned down.
Still to be acted upon was the
controversial amendment by
Senator McClellan (Dem., Ark.)
to extend so-called community
property benefits to taxpayers
of all the states.
He claimed support of at least
26 senators for his amendment to
give taxpayers in all states the
benefits now enjoyed in commun-
ity property states.
Barkley said that it would
"be silly and futile" for the
President to try and delay sign-
ing the bill to avoid overriding
of the veto and added:
"The President of the United
States is not that kind of a man."
Senator Lucas (Dem., Ill.), act-
ing as minority leader, made the

Day Request
The Committee on Student Af-
fairs yesterday turned down an
Inter-Racial Association request
for permission to sponsor an An-
ti-Lynch Tag Day July 24 on
The Committee ruled that no
"tag days" shall be held during
this summer session. Proceeds
from the Anti-Lynch Tag Day
would have gone to the Southern
Negro Youth Congress.
The Committee approved an
Anti Lynch Forum to be held by
IRA July 23. Also approved was the
showing of "Wuthering Heights",
July 21 and 22 in Hill Auditorium,
with proceeds to go to the IRA.

Representatives of eight campus
and two town organizations will
ask Mayor William E. Brown Jr.I
Tuesday to declare an Anti-Lynch1
Day in Ann Arbor and will re-
quest a reconsideration by the Stu-
dent Affairs Committee on its re-
fusal to grant an Anti-Lynch tag
day on campus, according to an1
IRA spokesman.

IRA will also request the Stu-I
dent Legislature to review the case.

the United States are the desig-

mnap would indicate them.
But the Landeckers, who have
come to join their son, Prof. Wer-
ner Landecker of the sociology de-
partment, prefer to speak of the
three nations not in terms of how
a map would name them, but
rather in terms of what their
people have made of them.
Spirit of People
"It is the spirit of the people
within the country that deter-
mines how liveable that country
is," Prof. Landecker said. "And it's
the differences in spirit that
makes of Germany a hell, of Eng-
land a heaven and of America a

existence in pre-war Germany as
opposed to their life in wartime
England and post-war America.
The tactics and attitude of the
Nazis had made life unbearable in

decker recalled. The people, by
and large, had lost any sense of
values, appeared grim and were
imbued with a war fever, they

eve of war," Mr. Landecker said,

arable since he picked it up in a
London shop five years ago.)
Spirit of Determination
"When war came," Mr. Lan-
decker said, "the optimistic spirit
of the English people became a
spirit of determination. It was in-
vigorating to watch the miracu-
lous English go about the business
of war. There was no convincing
them that they couldn't bear up
in the face of unheard of hard-
ships and without complaint."

Stolen Papers
Top Secret'
Documents Found
In Scattered Spots
By The Associated Press
agents late today arrested two
former Army sergeants accused
of taking atomic bomb docu-
ments-some of them said to be
"top secret"-from the Los Ala-
mos, N.M. testing station.
The FBI, making the an-
nouncement, told of recovering
the documents and photographs
of "the various phases" of the
A-Bomb from a variety of places

rested at his home at 418 Serpen-
tine Drive, Mt. Lebanon, Pa.

West Burton Place, Chicago. He
was arrested at his Paul Stone-
Raymor photograph studio, 168
North Michigan, Chicago.
While FBI agents reserved
comment on this phase. in-
formed government officials
saidno evidence was uncover-
ed that any of the documents
were seen by anyone besides the
two ex-sergeants.
Lou Nichols, FBI public rela-
tions officer, told reporters that
information uncovered by inves-
tigators "indicated no connec-
tion between these boys and for-
eign agents or foreign espionage"
The FBI said in a statement
that complaints are being filed
before the U.S. Commissioner at
Santa Fe, N.M. charging Von
der Luft and Wallis with wilful-
ly and unlawfully removing and
concealing records and doc-
ments in violation of Section
234, Title 18, U.S. Criminal
This section covers removal and
