New Support
Won For Tax
Slashing Bill
Democriats Back
Revised Measure
By' The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 25-Pow-
erful Democratic support was
thrown today behind a Republi-
can drive to reenact the vetoed
$4,000,000,000 tax slashing bill,
with the cuts effective next Jan-
uary 1 instead of next week.
Senator Byrd (Dem., Va.), who
opposed the original bill, issued a
statement declaring that tax re-
duction effective January 1 can
pass even over another veto, if thie
GOP' majority establishes a ceil-
ing on federal spending and con-
tinues to cut expenditures.
The Virginian raised doubt that
President Truman would veto the
bill with the effective date chang-
ed to next year.
George Supports Bill
Senator George (Dem., Ga.),
who voted for the previous bill but
supported the veto, threw his sup-
port behind the new bill by Chair-
man Knutson (Rep., Minn.) of
the House ways and means com-
One influential Democrat said
privately that a check of. some
Democratic Senators indicated
enough would shift from their op-
position to the first bill to over-
ride any veto of 1ie new measure.
House Speaker Martin (Rep.,
Mass.) already has said it is cer-
tain the House could overthrow
a second veto. The House sustain-
ed the President's veto last week
by only two votes.
Foresees Little Opposition
Senator Johnson (Dem., Colo.),
opponent of the original bill, told
reporters he would support the
new measure and predicted it
would not have "too serious op-
position" if it comes to the Sen-
ate floor.
"I like the January 1 effective
date," he said.
However, Senator Taft (Rep.,
0.) discounted the possibility of
further action on tax-cutting leg-
islation before Congress adjourns
next month.
He said he has not changed his
opinion that the tax measure is
dead for this session. He added
that in a talk with Speaker Mar-
tin he "rather got the impression"
that the bill was reintroduced
"just so it will be there as the
Republican program."
AVC Delegates
Shun Factions
At Convention
Delegates from the campus
chapter of AVC to the organiza-
n's national convention at Mil-
wukee last week voted solidly for
a platform and candidates disas-
sociated with either the left or
right factions in AVC, it was dis-
closed last night at the chapter's
first meeting of the summer ses-
Lorne Cook, chairman of the
chapter and one of its ten dele-
gates to the convention, declared
that the chapter had refused to
line up with either organized fac-
tion for fear of further internal

strife in the organization.
(At the convention held from
June 19 to 22, attended by 1,310
delegates, Chat Paterson and

"We were out to protest or-
ganized factionalism, and we re-
fused to go along with any whose
election would meet with bitter-
ness on the part of the 'other
side," Cook said. "Our middle
point of view met with support of
delegates casting ballots in be-
half of 10,000 of the 60,000 mem-
bers represented."
Cook worked with a steering
commictee at the convention, led
by Michael Straight, publisher of
the New Republic, who accom-
panied Henry Wallace on his re -
cent visit to the University. The
committee constituted a' caucus
for the "middle" point of view.

chairman, was elected however,

Prof. Tilley, though he retired
from the University in 1946 after
a 40-year tenure, had remained
active in the Dunworkin club, an
organization of University faculty
and other members who have con-
tinued their activities along .spe-
cial lines after passing the emeri-
tus age.,
He had been engaged in a fin-1
al pre-publication editing of "AI
Dictionary of Proverbs in Eng-
land," a monumental work with
which he had been occupied for
the past twenty years.
The "Dictionary of Proverbs"
covers the period from 1500 to
1700 encompassing writings of'
Elizabethans in g e n e r a 1 and
Shakespeare in particular, the
phases of English with which Prof.
Tilley was most concerned. The
book, arranged alphabetically ac-'
cording to catch words, includes
as well, some of the proverbial'
works of Benjamin Franklin,'
which Prof. Tilley found to be in
the tradition of English proverbs.'
Prof. Tilley received his doctor's
degree at the University of Leip-
zig in 1902 after having received
both his A.B. and A.M. from the
University of Virginia. Return-
ing from Germany, he became a
member of the English depart-
ment of Syracuse University,
where he remained for four years.
In 1906, he came to Ann Arbor
as an assistant professor. In 1912
he became junior professor, in
1915, associate professor and from
1918 till his retirement in 1946,
he was a full professor.
Koos Praises
junior Col lege
New Four Year Plan
hepfultocomni unity
The new four year junior col-
lege is the most effective and econ-
nomical way to bring the advan-
tages of the junior high school and
the junior college to the commun-
ity, according to Prof. L. V. Koos,
who opened the School of Educa-
tion's summer lecture series yes-
Dr. Koos, who is Professor of
Secondary Education at the Uni-
versity of Chicago, spoke on "The
Rise of the People's College." He
traced the development of junior
colleges which he said have been
known as "the people's colleges"
since 1875. This title was applied
by William Watts Folwell, first
president of the University of
Minnesota, some 20 years before
anyone had thought to use the
name "junior college."
Prof. Koos discussed the three
types of junior college organiza-
tion but emphasized the new trend
which is known as the "six-four-
four" plan. Under this system the
last two years of high school are
combined into a four-year unit
which includes grades 11 to 14.
A four year junior high school
and six year elementary school are
usually used in conjunction with
this plan, Dr. Koos said.

Russia To Join Talk
'On Europe Recovery
Rv The Associated Pres
LONDON, June 25-The Mar-
shall plan for European recovery
evoked favorable reaction in Ro-
mania, Czechoslovakia, Poland,
Hungary and Bulgaria today, in
the wake of Russia's agreement to
discuss the matter with Britain
and France at a conference open-
ing in Paris Friday.
However, the Moscow newspaper
Pravda warned that no self-res-
pecting European nation could
accept United States economic aid
if it meant American "interfer-
ence" in its internal affairs, and
French Communist leader Maur-
ice Thorez said the Marshall Plan
appeared to be aimed at creating
a western bloc of nations "which
would cut Europe in two."
A high British government
source said American and British
representatives, now conducting
talks o the proposal, generally
felt "endouragement" at the res-
ponse by European governments,
and particularly at Russia's de-
cision tho attend the Paris confer-
Meet Wi h Attlee
William L. Clayton, U.S. Under-
secretary of State for Economic
Affairs, and Ambassador Lewis W.
Douglas met at dinner tonight
with Prime Minister Attlee and
his , topmost advisers, at No. 10
Downing Street.
This was the third time in two
days that the two Americans had
exchanged ideas on the Marshall
proposal and other aspects of Eur-
opean economy with Attlee, For-
eign Secretary Ernest Bevin,
Chancellor of the Exchequer Hugh
Dalton and Sir Stafford Cripps.
The Britons told Clayton they
would ask the Paris Conference to
set up a central committee to dir-
ect overall operations of the re-
covery program, and "functional"
subcommittees to assess contin-
ental needs in the way of steel,
coal, agriculture, transportation
and possibly food and relief.
Newspapers Optimistic
Newspapers in many Russian
satellite countries appeared op-
timistic about the three-power
conference, and even the Pravda
article gave evidence of great
Russian interest.
The Bucharest leftist newspa-
per Timpul said "if agreement is
reached, fear that the continent
could be divided into two antagon-
istic blocs would disappear as
would all accusations of domina-
tion and expansion that have hin-
dered hitherto loyal cooperation
between the east and the west."
Czechs Ask Agreement
Much the same note was sound-
ed by the Prague Social Demo-
crat newspaper Pravo Lidu, which
asserted that "it is definitely the
desire of the Czechoslovak gov-
ernment that agreement be reach-
ed on this matter." A government
committee was set up to study the
Marshall plan.

"with sympathy" toward the pro-

Rep. Hartley

Mine Leader
WASHINGTON, June 26-('P)-
Rep. Hartley (Rep., N.J.) today
called John L. Lewis a "rebellious
and mutinous citizen" and de-
clared that the new labor law will
be strengthened to deal with him
and a coal strike, if necessary.
Hartley is chairman of the
House Labor Committee and co-
author of the new Hartley-Taft
Act designed to curb strikes and
other union activities.
Calls Lewis Mutinous
"For my own part," he said in a
statement, "I look upon John L.
Lewis as a rebellious and mutin-
ous citizen, a man who hasre-
fused time and time again to ac-
cept the authority of government
except on his own terms."
Hartley said that because of the
attitude he ascribed to Lewis,
"other leadersofrorganized labor
are showing signs of that same re-
bellious activity." He added:
Unhealthy Situation
"The reaction of organized la-
bor to the enactment of the new
labor law indicates a most un-
healthy situation in our economy."
Hartley rejected the idea of
continuing the government's war-

Area Receives
Major Setback
"Strikes Protest Taft-
Hartley Labor Bill
By The Associated Press
PITTSBURGH, June 26 - The
number of soft coal miners idle in
pre-vacation walkouts rose to over
217,000 today, and some steel
mills, low on fuel supplies, started
production cutbacks.
The coal mines administration
reported 61,000 of Pennsylvania's
100,000 bituminous miners had
quit work, costing the big coal
state 324,000 tons daily. In addi-
tion, 3,200 anthracite miners walk-
ed out in eastern Pennsylvania.
The CMA said work resumption
efforts by United Mine Workers
officials drew 3,000 to 4,000 men
back to pits in West Virginia, but
new walkouts swlled the total of
idle to more than 48,800 in the
Mountain State.
Nine of 43 Harlan County, Ky.,
mines reopened without explana-
tion, leaving the idle in Kentucky
at 30,000 to 35,000.
Idle miners by states: Pennsyl-
vania, 64,200 (includes 3,200 an-
thracite miners); West Virginia,
48,800; Kentucky, 30,000 to 35,000;
Illinois, 18,000; Alabama, all 20,000
out; Virginia, 11,000; Tennessee,
5000; Ohio 10,933; Indiana, 6,527;
Utah, 1,500.
More Than Half
The total of idle represented
more than one-half 'the nation's
400,000 bituminous miners, who

as protests against the Taft-Hart

On the operators' side, I. W.
Rouser, president of the Alabama
Mining Institute called the walk-
outs "an uprising against the law
of the land."
Cutbacks Announced
Steel cutbacks were announced
at three centers of the industry,
with the equivalent of 10/2 blast
furnaces being banked. The
Youngstown, O., area received the
heaviest setback because of low
coal stockpiles.
The Youngstown Sh'eet and
Tube Company shut off six blast
furnaces at Youngstown and Chi-
cago, plus nine open hearths at
Youngstown. The Carnegie-Illin-
ois Steel Corp. shut down the
equivalent of 4/ blast furnaces in

MYDA President Harriet Ratner
asking reinstatement of MYDA
"as a campus organization."
In a letter to theBoard, Miss
Ratner reiterated that "no specif-
