Tax Increase
Approved by
Senate Unit
To Raise Income
Taxes by 3 Billion
ate Finance Committee voted
unanimously yesterday to increase
individual income taxes by about
This is what it will mean, if
the Senate and House approve, as
they are expected to do:
1. Uncle Sam will begin digging
deeper into the pockets of over
50,000,000 individual taxpayers on
October 1. Withholding of wages
andsalaries, after personal exemp-
tions, will jump from the present
15 per cent to 18 per cent.
2. The actual increase in taxes
will be around 20 per cent for mil-
lions of persons in the lower in-
come brackets. For 1950, the pre-
sent tax would apply on three-
fourths of income, and the higher
rates on one fourth. In 1951 and
thereafter the higher rates would
apply on all income.
3. GI's in areas of hostility
'probablywould pay no tax at all,
and their officers would get re-
ductions in their taxes, too. The
tax exemption would not apply
to service men and women out-
side of war zones.
THE COMMITTEE instructed
its staff to work out exemption
figures which would erase taxes
on the service pay of the GI's be-
low commissioned officer rank.
Officers probably would get the
same size exemption, but they
still might have some taxes to
pay, because of the size of their
Yesterday's action completed
Committee approval of the major
provisions of President Truman's
"first installment" $5,000,000,000
tax boosting program. He sent it
to Congress last month to help
pay for the Korean War and for
this country's new armament pro-
gram against Communist aggres-
The Committee Thursday, also
by a unanimous vote, approved a
$1,500000,000 a year increase in
corporation taxes, raising the top
rate from 38 per cent of income
to 45.

"It is definitely preferable that
the administration be given the
discretionary auhority for higher
taxes and direct controls," Prof.
Richard A. Musgrave of the eco-
nomics department told The Daily
However, the Associated Press
reported that the fight had begun

a control over price-wage-rationing
THE HOUSE voted Thursday to
leave the decision entirely up to
President Truman. The Senate is
debating a measure which would
do the same thing.
Commenting on the action by
the House in giving President

Truman a free hand, Musgrave
declared that these controls
should be introduced in stages,
but not before a much more
rigorous tax and credit policy
is adopted.
"If you introduce direct con-
trols too soon," he said, "they will
be worn out by the time you really
needed them."

THE BEST ACTION to take tc
begin with is controlling strategic
materials and consumer's credit;
then the stage would be set for

Musgrave asserted.

Europe Assembly
OK's Defense Plan
STRASBOURG, France-(OP)-The European Consultative Assem-
bly adopted last night, 89 to 5, with 27 abstentions, a motion by
Winston Churchill urging creation of a United European Army for
defense of the West.
The motion, as revised in a 20-man committee which included
the veteran British Conservative leader, provides that the Unified
army would serve under a European ministry of defense.
CHURCHILL SAID he would not be a candidate for the proposed
post of defense minister.
He urged in a speech the creation of a unified army, including
German troops, and the dispatch of large armed forces from
4 Britain and the United States to

12,000 See Aerobatic Flipf lops at Wayne A irport


An estimated crowd of 12,000
watched stunters and aerobats
perform feats that turned the
stomachs of veteran fliers at the
opening of the third Internation-
al Air Fair at Wayne County Air-
port ,yesterday.
Thrills came quickly as the crack
Cole Brothers team snapped into
action. As one parachuting mem-
ber landed neatly in the white
circle in front of the grandstand,
the rest of the team performed
such aerobatic miracles as ver-
tical snap rolls, chandelles and'
formation Immelmans.
SPECTATORS gasped as two of
the daredevils swooped head-on

ROSS TOLD reporters that Tru-
man-who has been turned down
on all of his repeated requests for
Congress to set up Universal Mili-
tary Training (UMT) - still
strangly favors the plan.
But Ross said Truman doesn't
want the controversial training
program to come up at a time
when it might interfere with so
much legislation he considers vi-
tal to Korean war needs.
Yet Ross hardly had completed
his comments before George Craig,
National Commander of the Amer-
ican Legion, left a conference with
the President and announced "The
Legion will go all-out to get a
UMT bill through Congress this

through a bill which would give
the President the power to start a
civilian training program when-
ever he thinks the situation will
justify it.
This would get around one im-
mediate criticism of a UMT pro-
gram now: that it would be silly
to take 200,000 men out of the
Defense Department to run UMT
when every man is needed for
the Korean war.
Craig told reporters: "I believe
that the President favors this pro-
posal. In my opinion he is for it."

Sir Gladwyn Jebb told the UN
yesterday the forces of Commu-

JEBB TANGLED with Soviet
Deputy Foreign Minister Jakob A.

battle over Korea. Malik brushed
Jebb off with a suggestion to tell
it to the British Museum - and
then spent 45 minutes counter-at-
tacking American declarations of
Russian responsibility in North
When the day's debate ended,
the Council found itself right
where it was at the start. The
procedural stalemate continued
as tight as ever.
Malik argued that General Mac-
Arthur, UN commander in Korea,
ordered President Syngman Rhee
to attack North Korea and pro-
mised American troops and planes
to help him. He said the Ameri-
can delegation here is shedding
"crocodile tears" about Korea but
that actually the U.S. is interested
in nothing but investments in Ko-
rea, in cheap labor and in a mili-
tary bulwark in Asia.

Caro Bayley brought thrills
and chills as she maneuvered her
slick, tiny, black and white plane
practically on top of the run-

beautiful knife-edge slice which

angle right above the run-way.

Offer Soviets
Season Pass
To'U' Games
of America yesterday offered to
buy a season pass for any accredit-
ed Russian correspondent who
wants to see Michigan's football
team in action.
It broadcast this offer in 25
languages on all its programs
beamed throughout the world.
THE BROADCAST was an ans-
wer to a radio Moscow propaganda
blast against American football
which said: "Football players at
Michigan are often carried from
the football field to the hospital
or even straight to the cemetery."
In reply the State Depart-
ment's "Voice" accused the Rus-
sians of shedding "crocodile
tears" about American athletes
who were pictured by Moscow
as driven to slaughter by greedy
promoters. Moscow cried that it
all is inspired by.Wall Street to,
get the American public condi-
tioned for a war.
Said the U.S. announcer:
"The Voice will gladly offer a
season's pass to all Michigan
games to an accredited USSR cor-
respondent to see for himself. We
-an assure him that he'll have no
expenses for flowers or wreaths."
Voice directors expect no takers
to check on the official Moscow
propaganda line.

YP Probation Blamed
On 'Irresponsibility'

The reason for the University
disciplinary action in placing the1
Young Progressives on probation
for the fall semester was made
public yesterday.
According to Dean of Students
Erich A. Walter, it was "continued
general irresponsibility" as evi-
denced in three infractions of Uni-
versity rules:
1-Submission of a "markedly
inaccurate" membership 1 i s t,
which named more than 20-non-
students as members of the cam-
pus organization and neglected to
name some students who are mem-
2-Retention of Gordon Mac-
Dougall as chairman of the group
without receiving permission from
the Office of Student Affairs. Mac-
Dougall is not a registered student
this summer.
3-Announcement of an "open
forum" on the Korean situation
after only obtaining permission
for a membership meeting.

means that the YP will be per-

The Young Progressives have
charged that the action "violates
University procedures," and said
that they will "appeal this case
to the student body" in the fall.
COMMENTING on the disci-
plinary action, summer Student
Legislature President Keith,-Beers
said he "cannot see how any group
could object to being warned that
continued irresponsibility would
be grounds for punishment,..
"There are two general patterns
of action which the YP might
now follow: they might fight this
action . . with their past me-
thods of belligerence and lack of
cooperation; or they might try to
gain the good faith of students,
faculty, and administration by a
new program of action within the
established channels," Beers said.
Another member of the Stu-
dent Legislature, Tom Walsh,
'51L, said he is "confident that
the Student Legislature this fall
will want to review and clarify
the entire situation."
