PANEL DISCUSSION-Dr. Dorothy Whipple, Prof. E. Lowell Kelly, Mrs. Margaret Tracy, and Ewan
Clague discuss the topic, "Women's Work Outside the Home."
Clagues Favor Some Wives Working

Ewan Clague, commissioner of

States Department of Labor, and
f his wife, Dorothy Whipple M.D.
told an Angell Hall audience last
night that they approved of wives
and mothers working- -with some

that, although a smaller proportion

Salk Denies,
Losing Job
From Probe
Lee Salk, University Fresh Air
Camp psychologist, yesterday re-
futed a report that he was removed
> from his $5,500-a-year state job
for political reasons.
Auditor General John B. Mar-
tin, Jr., had allegedlly stated that
Salk was removed because "From
all the evidence available to us,
Salk apparently has been an ac-
tive member of the (Communist)
party at one time."
Job Expired
However, Salk told The Daily
last night that his contractual
agreement with the Department
of Mental Health expired after he
completed his part in collecting
data and helping design the study
he was working on.
Francis Crowley, N e w Y o r k
rdraftsman, testified last June 29th
before the House Un-American
Activities Committee in Washing-
ton that Salk was a member of
the Ralph Neafus Communist Club
on the University campus:
Chales F. Wagg, Director of the
state department which employed
the psychologist in a project called
"A follow-up Study of Child Guid-
ance Clinic Cases" sent Salk a
E letter dated July 20, 1954 notifying
him that his work was completed
to their satisfaction and that he
had "made a worthwhile contribu-
tion to this most important pro-
Wagg also said in the letter that
the expiration of Salk's duties was
' somewhat accelerated by a change
of policy which allowed contractual
agreements (of the type held by
Salk) to be entered into only with
a "university or college," but not
with "individuals."
Wagg added that the department
was cutting down on expenses in
the project Salk was working on
and said that the expiration of his
duties "in no way relates to you
as an individual or the quality of
work you have been doing."
Porter Denies
Prison Charge
LANSING (IA - Sen. Elmer R.
Porter (R-Blissfield? Wednesday
made a detailed 10-noint denial of

World War II, and predicted the
continuation of that pattern.
His wife, who appeared with him
in the public panel discussion last
night in an elaboration of the same
topic, said, "Not all women who
are able to bear children are tem-
peramentally suited to rear them."
No Correlation
While she feels that ideally it
is desirable for a mother to stay
at home with her young children,
she said that she can find no corre-
lation whatever between emotional'
problems in children and whether
or not the mother works.
In her work as a pediatrician,
Dr. Whipple often cousels young
mother who want to work. Such a
woman, she says, should seriously
consider three factors:
1. Whether her health can stand
it-"She must have the constitu-
tion of an ox."
2. Whether or not the mother
can earn enough to supplant her
labors at home, although it may
be psychologically desirable to
work if that will give a woman a
better feeling about life, even at
monetary coast to her family.
3. Whether her husband will be
sympathetic to her earning income,.
and not have his ego hurt by it.3
The Role of Money
Dr. Whipple continued that in;
the old days women never raised
a brood of childreh by themselves.
But, today they have to do it alone.
Modern mothers can't go far from,
their homes because they have no
one with whom to leave their chil-
dren and it is too awkward to take
their brood with them.a
Commenting on the relation of
money to happiness, Dr. WhippleI

House Okay

said that contrary to general opin-
ion money has relatively small im-
portance to marital happiness.
High income marriages are no
happier than others.
Dr. Whipple concluded that even
if a mother does go outside the
home and take a job she still has
the complete responsibility of her
house and children. When she gets
home from her job she still has
to have some "vigor left for the
State GOP'
Starts Feud
WASHINGTON (R) -Republican
Reps. Jesse P. Wolcott and Kit'
Clardy touched off a bitter Re-
publican party fight Wednesday.
Both, demanded that the GOP
State Central Committee stay out
of their primary campaigns.
Wolcott, chairman of the House
Banking Committee and a con-
gressman of 24 years standing, and
Clardy of East Lansing,aimed their
blasts at GOP state party chair-
man John Feikens.
Wolcott's blast was delivered in
a strong five-page letter to Feikens.
He claimed the State Central
Commitee had done nothing but
embarrass him for the past two
years. The bristling message
stemmed from the latest move
in a controversy of long standing
between Wolcott and Frank C.
Lawson, his primary opponent in
Michigan's Seventh Congressional
Clardy's two-page letter was in
retaliation to reports that Feikens
had termed him an "anti-Eisen-
hower congressman."
Meanwhile. Feiken~s said he was
unable to understand the outbursts,
saying he was an enthusiastic
booster of both Wolcott and Clardy.

Revamps Taxes
The compromise bill, running
about 1,000 pages, revamps the en-
tire national tax structure. It does
not change major rates but it
gives individuals and business
firms scores of new or bigger taxr
For individuals, the deductions
would go principally to families
with 1 a r g e medical expenses,
mothers who must work to support
their children, retired persons, pa-
rents of children who work, and
farmers with large soil conserva-
tion expenses.
Business firms and Individuals'
alike would benefit from the divi-
dend tax cut. Business firms also
would be given much more rapid
tax deductions for depreciation of
new plants and equipment, more
liberal treatment of research ex-
penses, greater freedom to set
aside surpluses, more power to off-
set losses in bad years against
profits in good years, and less
stringent a c c o u n t i ng require-
Most of the tax cuts would take
effect as of last Jan. 1 and would
show up in: returns filed next
spring. The revenue reductions
would mount in future years.

Senate Passes
Housing Bill
WASHINGTON (ii- The Senate
Wednesday night passed and sent
to the White House an omnibus
housing bill reducing down pay-
ments on homes bought with gov-
ernment - insured mortgages and
setting up safeguards against
"windfall" profits on big rental
The legislation generally follows
P r s e i d e n t Eisenhower's rec-
ommendations but falls short of
what he asked for in low-rent
public housing units subsidized by
the government.
Passage came on a roll call vote
of 59 to 21. It was obvious from
the debate that a number of those
who voted against the bill did so
Sbecause they didn't like the public
housing provision.
A compromise between differing
House and Senate. measures, the
bill is designed to insure continued'
high - level home building at a
rate greater than one million units
Its public housing feature of 35,-
000 units in the next year, restrict-
ed to families actually displaced
by federal slum clearance activi-
ties, compares with Eisenhower's
request for 140,000 units over the
next four years.
The measure does these main
1. Lowers down payments re-
quired for the purchase of new and
old homes in the government's big
sales-housing program and length-
ens the repayment period.
2.Allows builders of big rental
projects who use, government -in-
sured loans to include only a "rea-
sonable" profit as part of their
legitimate costs.
3. Sets up a new low-cost sales
housing program for families in
slum-cleared areas.

Streit To Talk
on .Atlantic

"Why Moscow Fears the Atlantic

May Stay on
In Office
Makes Minister
Patch-up Effort
LONDON (A') - Sir Winston
Churchill replaced two of his Cab-
inet ministers Wednesday in a gov-
ernment shakeup that indicated he
intends to stay on as Prime Min-
ister. A third minister offered his
resignation Wednesday night but
there was no indication it had been
Churchill, 79 and under -h e a v y
pressure from his doctors and his
wife to retire, filled two Cabinet
jobs vacated by resignations and
reshuffled his junior aides in an
obvious ministerial patch-up ef-.
Colonial Secretary
Alan Lennox-Boyd, 49, minister
of transport and civil aviation, was
moved up to Cabinet rank and ap-
pointed colonial secretary. He re-
places Oliver Lyttelton, who re-
signed Wednesday night for per-
sonal reasons.
Derek Heathcoat Amory, 54, min-
ister of state at the Board of Trade,
was named to replace Sir Thomas
Dugdale as agriculture minister.
This post also is of Cabinet rank.
John Boy Carpenter, financial
secretary to the Treasury, replaces
Lennox-Boyd as minister of trans-
port, a non-Cabinet job.
Shortly after these changes were
made, Atty. Gen. Sir Lionel Heald
said that he, too, had placed his
resignation in Churchill's hands.
Heald has made it plan for some
time he would like to quit the
government and return to his law
business. The fact that his name
was not included in Wednesday
night's reshuffle, even though his
resignation was on Church-
ill's desk, strengthened the convic-
tion that Churchill plans to leae
any drastic remodeling of the got-
ernment to his successor.
Re juggling
The Prime Minister's changes
included the rejuggling of his jun-
ior ministers to fill the holes
caused by the promotion of Lennox
-Boyd and Amory. The shifts were
the least Churchill could do to keep
his Cabinet on an even keel.
Lyttelton had been pressing for
some time to be allowed to quit
the government and return to pri-
vate business. Dugdale resigned
last week after a judicial inquiry
into charges of maladministration
in his department.
Political experts said the changes
bear out Churchill's obvious in-
tention to stay on in office-at
least until September. One of the
main reasons for his stand, they
added, is the U.S. attitude toward
Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden,
Churchill's chosen successor.
Churchill had intended to hand
over the reins to Eden after the
Geneva conference. Although Eden
came back to Britain in a blaze
of glory, his share in the Geneva
parley was not too popular in
American circles.
