LUCKY DUJCKS-Henrietta the hen is a motherly soul. When these Muscovy ducks were abandon-
ed by their parents she took over. Fred E. Vitek, of Chelsea, Ia., owner of both ducks and hen, bought
the ducklings a plastic wading pool where they frolic during the heat of the day. Henrietta doesn't
care for swimming herself, but she stands guard on the side of the pool while her adopted brood en-
joys the water.

House Okays
Drought Bill
House hurried through yesterday a
bill to provide 150 million dollars
for emergency relief in the
drought-stricken Southwest.
Given unanimous approval the
measure was sent to the Senate,,
where quick action is expected.
The bill makes it easier than
heretofore for farmers to borrow
money from the federal govern-
ment. Under present law, no emer-
gency loans may be made for less
than $2,500. The House measure
would allow smaller loans if the
farmer can't get credit elsewhere.

FARM PROBLEMS got an air-
ing at the White House yesterday
where President Eisenhower con-
ferred with eight House Republi-
cans from farm regions and with
GOP National Chairman Leonard
W. Hall.
Rep. Carl H. Andersen (R-
Minn.) told reporters the President
said he had an open mind on farm
problems and that no major
changes in the government's pro-
gram will be made until after a
series of surveys are completed
next year.
* * *
CHAIRMAN Hope (R-Kan.) of
the House Agriculture Committee
said it is assumed that the ad-
ministration will continue the
farm price support program in
In reply to a question Hall said
he has heard of no fear among
farmers that the program will
be scrapped.
In his pre-election campaign
last year, Eisenhower came out
for helping farmers receive 100
per cent of parity at the market
place and also for a minimum of
federal controls.
* * *
PARITY IS A price declared by
law to be fair to farmers in rela-
tion to the things they buy. Basic
crops are now supported at 90 per
cent of parity. The law under
which these supports operate will
expire at the close of the 1954
marketing year.
Secretary of Agriculture Benson
has been critical of continuing
high price supports, arguing that
they tend to encourage overpro-
duction and to price some com-
modities right out of the market,-
particularly foreign markets.

Minister Calls
British crown
'Unit Symbol'
The British Coronation cere-
mony is a symbol of Christian un-
ity, Rev. J. Frazer McLuskey told
a group of students and towns-
people yesterday.
Speaking in Lane Hall Library
on "The State of ,Religion in
Britain," Mr. McLuskey declared
that if you do not accept this in-
terpretation of the coronation, the
ceremony becomes "nonsense."
THE RELIGIOUS significance
of the coronation and the crown
is strengthened, he said, by the
fact that Queen Elizabeth is her-
self a deeply religious person.
Mr. McLuskey pointed out that
the British do not have the same
religious or racial problems that
are found in this country be-
cause they are a more homo-
genious people.
A great majority of the people
in England belong to the Angli-
can Church and most Scots are
Presbyterians, the Scottish min-
ister explained.
Because of this the British have
been able to set up religious in-
struction and worship in the free
state-supported schools as well as
in the army, he said.
INDIVIDUAL colleges at Oxford
and Cambridge each have their
own chapels and chaplins and each
Scottish University has a chapel
where interdenominational ser-
vices are conducted.
In answer to a question Mr. Mc-
Luskey said that the difference be-
tween the English and Scottish
churches is that the Anglican
Church is governed by Bishops
while Scots have a body of min-
isters and laymen called Presby-

that circumstances arise testing
her ability to tell the truth, is the
subject of the NBC Television
drama, "The Young and Fair," at
8 p.m. tomorrow.
Mildred Dunnock, who was re-
cently seen in Ann Arbor in the
Drama Season's presentation of
Jane Bowle's "In the Summer
House," will star in the hour-long
play, which also includes Louisa
Horton and Sandra Kazan in the
cast. The play was written by N.
Richard Nash.

sun's extreme heat rays this
summer are shattering the
rear windows of automobiles,
according to Glen Weinman,
secretary-manager of the Blue
Grass Automobile Club.
He said yesterday the insur-
ance company associated with
the club has paid approximate-
ly 20 claims the last 30 days to
replace shattered windows.
Weinman said he had never
heard of the trouble prior to
this summer. He suggested
leaving windows open for ven-
tilation and parking in the
shade to avoid the shattering.

Law 'Flexible'
LANSING-(R)-Panel members
at the Michigan State College
forum on state and local govern-
ment yesterday agreed that a
complete revision of the state con-
stitution is not needed in Michi-
"'OUR PRESENT constitution is
flexible enough to meet the needs
of any changing situations," said
Lt. Gov. Clarence Reid.
He said certain phases of the

Marvin Tableman, administrative
assistant to the Governor.
S* *e
TABLEMAN advocated such
changes as home rule programs
for county and township govern-
ments. He also suggested longer
terms for elected officials in the
upper strata of state government.
The panel was split on a sug-
gestion for a unicameral legis-
lature. Reid was against the
proposal of a one-house legis-

Reid said. "They are so good that

Posts Offered
Two 'U' Men
In Philippines
Chairman of the department of
engineering mechanics, Prof. Ed-
ward L. Eriksen, has requested a
one-year leave of absence from his
University teaching duties to join
a Mutual Security Agency team at
the University of the Philippines.
The request has not yet been
acted on by the University, and no
successor as department chief has
been named.
Another University instructor,
now on retirement leave, is also
planning to teach at the Philip-
pine University. He is Prof. Joseph
H. Cannon from the electrical en-
gineering department.
Both professors will go to the
Philippines as members of a
Stanford University team sponsor-
ed by the MSA. Under the plan,
the instructors will teach and help
set up laboratory equipment.
They will also recommend prom-
ising graduate students for fur-
ther studying in the United States
under sponsorship of MSA.

Movie Tax
Bill Lifted
By Congress
completed action yesterday on a
bill to remove the 20 per cent tax
on motion picture admissions. It
passed the Senate on a voice vote
and went to the White House for
President Eisenhower's signature.
Since the administration oppos-
ed the bill right down the line,
there is a possibility that Eisen-
hower may veto it.
* * *
ABOLITION of the federal movie
tax, it is estimated, will cost the
government about 100 million dol-
lars a year in revenue at a time
when the administration is strug-
gling to balance the budget.
Another objection to the re-
pealer-raised when the bill was
being debated in the House ear-
lier this week--was that movie-
goers generally would not bene-
fit because most theaters did
not intend to reduce their prices.
Rep. Kean (R-NJ) said this was
established in testimony before the
House Ways and Means Commit-
tee. Supporters of the bill said,
however, that theater owners who
were now making money would
pass along the tax saving
The measure passed the House
by an overwhelming vote Monday
after supporters painted a dark
picture of financial distress among
smalltown and neighborhood thea-
ters, caused chiefly, they said, by
television competition.
Picnic Postponed
The International Students As-
sociation summer picnic scheduled
for today, has been postponed until

NATIVE Jewish coins collected in
Palestine during the 1880's are
currently on display in the Arch-
eological Museum.
Included in the collection are
coins of Pontius. Pilate and French
coins found in Palestine and Sy-
ria at the same time.
The first Jewish coins were is-
sued after Simon the Maccabee
was granted the right of coinage
by Antiochus VII of Syria in 139
B.C. These coins were copper ex-
cept during the two Jewish revolts
when silver was minted.
Inscriptions on these early coins
are in Hebrew, although later
Greek was used, too. During the
reign of Herod the Great and his
successors Greek alone was used.
Hebrew appeared on the coins
again during the two revolts.
Since the Jews didn't permit
images of living creatures, only
symbols connected with temple
services appear.
Coins minted under the various

kings usually had a cross on one
side and a temple on the other.
The smallest coin is a mite which
shows an anchor on one side and
an eight spoke wheel on the other.
