Of Agriculture
PARIS-(P)--French and Ger-

their agricultural products along
the lines of the Schuman plan
for coal and steel.
This extension of the original

somber note yesterday while U.S.
troops fought on foreign soil to
save the independence of Com-

President Truman set the mood
of serious reflection on the dangers
to world peace as he passed the
day quietly in his temporary resi-

Michigan Heads Death List
As National Toll Passes 700

By The Associated Press
Violent deaths from the four-
day Independence holiday in the
nation soared above the 700mark
late last night, Michigan's toll
leading with 48 dead.
The huge national total threat-
ened the all-time record and was
far above advance expectations.

WITH SOME later reports still
expected from the heavy home-'
ward trek on the nation's high-
ways, this was the toll:
Total killed - 711; traffic
deaths - 443; drownings -- 157;
deaths from miscellaneous cau-
ses -- 111.
In Michigan, the causes were
divided as follows:
Traffic deaths - 31; drownings
- 13;; miscellaneous accidents -
California, with 47 dead, ranked
second among the states.

toppled by the votes of Socialists,
Communists and De Gaullists on
its first test in the National As-

The vote came on a point of

been placed before the House by
opposition deputies on the make-
up of the cabinet and the policy
it intended to follow. Queuille
asked that the questions be pig-

his request.

'U' Operations
Budgret OK'd
By Regents
A University budget for 1950-51
current operations of $18,364,747-
less than last year's by $410,000-
has been approved by the Board
of Regents.
"The reduction has been made
in such a way as to minimize its
adverse effect upon the teaching
programs"-so far as possible, Pro-
vyost James P. Adams said in an-
nouncing the budget.
However, the University will
have 30 fewer teachers next year.
A LOSS OF more than half a
million dollars from an expected
reduction in revenue from student
fees was a major factor in the
reduced budget, Provost Adams
said. This came mainly from a
reductionin the number of vet-
erans attending school under the
GI Bill.
