Michigan Men Are Sad-Sacks
Lose 3-0 to Harvard in Competition for Blind Dates
By MARTHA BAZAR
Michigan men are sad sacks
at making love.
Three local lotharios pitted
their telephone personalities
against three Harvard men and
lost 3 to 0, on the 'Blind Date'
TV show, last night.

THE THREE Harvard men
wound up dating the three girls
at the Stork Club, and the three
Michigan men, who couldn't
make time, wound up staring at
consolation prize watches.
The three losers were: Al
Sandmann '49E, from Mal-
verne, N,Y., Gil Evans '49A
from Rockville Center, N.Y.,
and Bob Carpenter '53 of
The girls-two blondes and a
brunette-were separated from
the six men by a partition.
EACH GIRL had her choice
of either a Harvard or a Mich-
igan man with only the tele-
phone conversations of each to
They didn't hesitate.
"I'll take the Harvard man,"
each in turn cooed sweetly.
THERE SEEMED little doubt
that the Harvard men were
superior, although it is difficult
to say why.
The Harvard men seemed to
have an intangible charm, al-
though each individual had a

He described himself as "the

Art Cinema Film
Will Open Today
"How Green Was My Valley"
will be shown at 7:30 and 9:30
p.m. today and tomorrow at the
Architecture Auditorium under
the auspices of Art Cinema League
and the Young Progressives.
The film is based on Richard
Llewellyn's best - selling novel
about the early coal-mining days
of a small Welsh community.
Huw Morgan, the youngest of
the six Morgan boys, is played by
"Master Roddy McDowall," who
had his first American movie part
in the picture. The story is seen
through Huw's eyes, with all his
early life flashing before him at
the time he prepares to leave the
anger over what he called a leak
that the-meeting was,to be held.
He said at his news conference
that he didn't like that and he
still doesn't like it.

leaked, he said, but he refused to
divulge his name. Whether this
person will be invited to another
conference will be decided when
and if a second meeting is held,
Sixteen military, diplomatic,
Congressional and atomic en-
ergy officials participated in
last Thursday night's meeting
at the Truman private resi-
dence. Reporters heard about it
in advance, but ran up against
a blank wall seeking informa-
tion when it ended.
Afterward, there were many re-
ports that the conference dealt
with the question whether to share
the latest a-bomb secrets with
Britain. Following another con-
ference on Capitol Hill yesterday,
legislators indicated a belief that
Mr. Truman will not divulge the
secrets to the British without the
approval of Congress.
Farm Aid Plan
To Continue Support
Olf Present Program
WASHINGTON-WP)-In a ma-
jor defeat for the Truman Ad-
ministration, the House yesterday
scuttled the Brannan farm sub-
sidy plan 239 to 170 and voted
to continue the present price sup-
port program through 1950.
The Brannan plan, offered by
the Secretarykof Agriculture, would
let the market price of perishable
foods drop to their natural level.
If they went below a point con-
sidered fair to farmers, the gov-
ernment (meaning the taxpayers)
would pay subsidies to the farmers.
* * *
UNDER THE present program,
the government keeps surpluses off
the market by means of purchases
and loans. Prices of major com-
modities are supported rigidly in
this way at 90 per cent of parity,
which is a price aimed at giving
the farmers a "fair" purchasing
Any losses on such operations,
are made good by the taxpayers.
The bill continuing this pro-
gram another year was passed
and sent to theSenate on a
vote of 383 to 25 but thep rev-
ious rolIcall by which the Bran-
nan plan was beaten, 239 to 170,
was the crucial test.
The House also made another
major decision-shouting approval
of an amendment to kill the Aiken
farm law enacted by the Repub-
lican-controlled 80th Congress.
Set to become effective in 1950,
this law would permit a flexible
60 to 90 per cent of parity support
for major crops.

A DEMOCRATIC - Republican'
headed by Rep. Gore (Dem.,
Tenn.), took complete charge of
the House, and not even a per-
sonal appeal by Speaker Rayburn
could save the day for the Ad-
ministration. Many men-suoh as
Gore and Monroney of Oklahoma
-who have supported many ad-
ministration bills, joined the op-
position to the Brannan plan.
Some members of the coalition
said the plan, which promised
cheaper food for consumers, got
its support principally from or-
ganized labor-not from farmers.
They argued that subsidies would
make farmers wards of the gov-

'U' Forced To Use
By CRAIG WILSON
Student tuition will be raised
again February, 1950.
Michigan students will pay $5
more each semester-$150 a year.
And out-state students will pay
an extra $25 each semester-$400

THE INCREASES were an-
nounced by the University Board
of Regents to help cover loss of
more than $1 million in expected
operating appropriations when the
state Legislature appropriated the
University $11,436,315, instead of
the $12,500,000 it had asked.
Even with the tuition raises, a
tentative budget deficit of $21,-
842 remains. Special Legislatu~re
appropriations are the on1y
means of covering the sum.
;The raise was the third in three
years. Tuition went from $120
and $240 to $140 and $300 Sep-
tember, 1946. Then it jumped an-
other $25 a semester for outstate
students last September, making
their yearly tuition $350:

to defend the North Atlantic
area without approval by Con-
gress. The vote was $4 to 11.
Minutes later, another Watkinsx
proposal-to deny that the treaty
obligated Congress to declare war
or use U.S. armed forces to de-
fend a pact nation-was beaten
87 to 8.
THE TREATY becomes effec-
tive when the seven original spon-
soring nations approve it. All but
two of these, France and the
Netherlands, have ratified. France
may vote this week.
The heart of the North At-
lantic Treaty is in three sections
dealing with aggression.
Article 3 says the signers
through "self help and mutual
aid" will develop their "individual
and collective capacity to resist"
attack. Opponents argued this
was a commitment for the United
States to arm Europe. They were
met with the assertion that no
obligation is involved.
ARTICLE 5 s ts forth what
happens in case of an attack on a
treaty signer. Each will assist by
forthwith taking "such action as
it deems necessary, including the
use of armed force." This was as-
sailed as an automatic involve-
ment of the U.S. in var if oie of
the treaty nations is attacked.
