bill minus blank check powers fo
President Truman.

arguments. He stuck by the orig-

Drafted by Secretary of State
Acheson and approved by Secre-
tary of Defense Johnson, the

some headway in reducing ob-

in a better position to drive for
quick passage.

Bank Reserve
Ratio Lowered
To Up Loans
eral Reserve Board yesterday or-
dered cuts in bank reserve require-
ments to make an extra $1,800,-
000,000 available for lending.
The cut in reserves is the sec-
ond in three months. It is the
latest in a series of "easy credit"
moves by the Reserve System to
bolster an economy which has
been slipping since last fall.
* * *
THE ORDER will permit banks
to lend-if they desire and if they
have loan applicants-a greater
portion of their deposits than at
any time since October, 1941, just
a few weeks before Pearl Harbor.
Reserve requirements refer to
the proportion of deposits that
banks in the Federal Reserve
System are required to post with
Federal Reserve authorities as

non-lendable reserves.
Board Chairman Thomas B. Mc-
Cabe said the Reserve unfreezing
was ordered after full discussion
by the seven-man board and the
five presidents on Federal Reserve

primary regard to the general

It also required all present cam-

will ask that the second NSA Con-
gress urge its member schools to
initiate requests by the student
governing body to the school ad-
ministration to refuse recognition
to any new campus organizations
which have discriminatory clauses
in their constitutions or clauses,
according to Walsh.
The Michigan Plan will be a
compromise between no action
and the "Amherst Plan."
The Amherst Plan calls for
straight-over-the-board banning
of all campus groups with discrim-
inatory clauses, effective at a pre-
arranged date in the future.
Both alternatives to the Mich-
igan Plan have received strong
criticism, according to Walsh.
ON CAMPUS, the objective of
removing discriminatory clauses
was accepted unanimously as a
desirable goal.
Supporters of the plan argued
that its adoption:
1. Would constitute a recogni-
tion of discriminatory classes as
an evil by the student body
through its elected representatives
who, passed the recommendation
to the SAC.
2. Would halt further expansion
of groups with discriminatory
clauses without affecting any ex-
isting groups already recognized
and be a starting point for an
educational campaign to induce
members of present discriminating
groups to remove their restrictive

society," Walsh said.
The Michigan Plan of ont inter-
fering with present organized
groups will actually serve as in-
direct pressure on national fra-
ternity groups with discriminatory
clauses-if their further expansion
is limited, he declared.
The pressure would also
strengthen the hand of those
within fraternities who want to
remove the clauses, he said.

French Reds
Protest Presence

PARIS-(A)-Twentyfive hun-
dred Communists marched and
sang around the fringes of the po-
lice-packed Place de la Concorde
yesterday but failed to carry their
demonstration against the At-
lantic Pact to the doorstep of the
U.S. Embassy.
The semi-official French news
agency reported several persons
were slightly hurt and said around
100-including three women Com-
munist deputies of the National
Assembly-were arrested for re-

ance was slight.

the outskirts of the spacious
square chanted "we want peace"
and sang the Communist anthem,
The Internationale.
The three American Chiefs of
Staff, whose presence in France
was the pretext for the adver-
tised demonstration banned by
police, saw none of it.
They were at Fontainbleau at
the time, 35 miles away, on one
leg of a busy round of talks with
French and European Union mili-
tary commanders, exploring the
preliminaries for the Atlantic Pact
defense system.

SIX THOUSAND police and sol-
diers, using the customary massing
strategy to frighten off threaten-
ing Communist uprisings, kept the
peace in the Place de la Concorde.
The U.S. embassy is in a corner
of the great square.
A small Communist delegation
was permitted inside the em-
bassy. Brig.-Gen. Joseph O'Hare
of the embassy staff received
the delegation but said it was
not his place to accept any peti-
Ambassador David Bruce re-
fused to see the Communists to-
day but said he would be glad to
receive them tomorrow. Members
of the delegation said they wanted
to protest aggression against
"peace-loving Russia."

Omar N. Bradley, Adm. Louis Den-
feld, and Gen. Hoyt S. Vanden-
berg spent over four hours in mili-
tary talks on their first full day
In the forenoon they met with

Like all libraries, this one's

it can supply to its patrons. It
depends largely upon the gen-

volume it uses.

library would like an even larger
inflow of books than usual this
summer. With fewer students get-

So why bother with scroung-

shelf ?
You can save yourself a lot of
trouble by merely hauling the
books, be they about literature,

THIRTY-TWO speeders were,
nabbed last week by four patrol-
men riding in plain cars, while 21
arrests were made by their com-
patriots in the fancier autos.
The city of Ann Arbor had
operated for many years with-
out marking patrol cars, accord-
ing to Enkemann.
"It has been only within the
last five or six years that we have
been marking our cars," he said.
THE CASE FOR and against
unmarked cars is presented in the
"National Municipal Guids" pub-

Speaking for marked patrol
cars, the guide commented that
"potential violators of rules are
warned and the people can read-
ily see that their guardians are
on duty."
On the other side of the fence,
the guide says that unmarked cars
can "watch and pursue those wary
violators who escape detection by
uniformed cars, and they are use-
ful in apprehending criminals
wanted for other violations."
Apparently, most of the citizens
of Ann Arbor agree with the case
for unmarked cars.
There have been few complaints
by motorists arrested by the plain
cars, according to police.
"They seem to agree with us
that such a step is necessary and
they are willing to take their medi-
cine," Enkemann added.

Cites 5 Points for
Rebuldng State
man Administration yesterday
publicly abandoned all hope of
saving China from the Reds by
aiding its Nationalist Government,
and in an unprecedented blast, it
labeled that government as a dis-
mal failure in the war against
Instead of aiding it, the Admin-
istration laid down a policy of
encouraging the Chinese people
to throw off the "foreign yoke" of
a Red regime which, Secretary of
State Acheson charged, serves
Russian imperialism.
* * -
THE NEW TURN in American
policy was announced in a letter
from Acheson to President Tru-
man, presenting him with the long
awaited white paper on American
relations with China. It was am-
plified in a statement which Ache-
son made to a news conference an
hour after the white paper was
made public.
In the statement Acheson laid
down five "basic principles" for
American relations with China,
with emphasis on rebuilding "an
independent" Chinese nation.
Acheson argued that the Na-
tionalists are militarily incapable
of blocking the forward march of
the Red armies into those areas of
China which they do not yet act-
ually control.
But, Acheson said in his state-
ment, he does not at all share in
"the defeatist attitude" of some.
Rather he sees the Communists
extending themselves without be-
ing sure of their strength or of
the reactions in store for them in
China and elsewhere.

gime might try to attack China's
neighbor nations in line with
"aims of Soviet Russian imperial-
The 1,054-page official record
of Chinese-American relations
is probably without parallel in
U.S. diplomatic history for its
criticism of another friendly
government. It bluntly blamed
China's fall to Communism on
Generalissimo Chiang Kai-Shek
and other Chinese Nationalist
leaders. It said their unwilling-
ness to win popular support for
their leadership was the root
cause of their "failures."
Not one battle was lost by the
Nationalists for lack of American
aid, Acheson told the President in
his letter. This aid since the end
of the war has totaled more than
$2,000,000,000, he reported.
The Administration report was
promptly assailed by members of
Congress who have long favored
greater assistance to the Chinese
Nationalists. Their attacks on the
report as a "face saving" explana-
tion were countered by Adminis-
tration supporters in Congress who
described the bulky document as
indicated in his statement yester-
day that he believes the Chinese
Communists may have taken on a
bigger job than they will be able
to handle in trying to rule the
country "in the interests of a for-
eign power." He said that they
are "committing themselves deep-
ly on the basis of unproved as-
sumptions as to the extent of their

own strength and the nature of
the reactions which they are bound
to provoke in China and else-
"The United States, for its
part," Acheson asserted, "will
be prepared to work with the
people of China and of every
other country in Asia to pre-
serve and to promote their true
interest, developed as they
choose and not as dictated by
