Party Feud
Defeats Tax
Income Tax Cut
Killed by 49-46
Wednesday beat down, 49-46, a
Democratic move to add a broac
income tax cut to the Administra
tion's tax revision bill.
Shortly before by a similar vote
the Democrats led the way in beat-
Ing a Republican plan for a tax
cut that would have amounted to
nearly one billion dollars a year
The Democratic proposal, spon
sored by Senator George, of Geor-
gia, would have raised persona
exemptions of all taxpayers and
their dependents by $100 a yea
to a total of $700. This would have
emant a cut of approximately 2-
billion dollars in annual revenue
at full effectiveness.
Ike Victory
The defeat of both GOP and
Democratic plans was a big vic
tory for the Eisenhower Adminis-
tration, which opposed any such
general' relief at this time.
Four Democrats joined with 45
Republicans to defeat the George
amendment. They were Senators
Byrd, of Virginia; Robertson, of
Virginia; Johnson, of Colorado,
and Holland, of Florida.
Two Republicans joined with 43
Democrats and Senator Morse
(Ind.-Ore.) to support the amend-
ment. The two were Seators Lang-
er and Young, both of North Da-
The only absentee was Senator
McCarthy (R., Wis.).
Party Line
The vote to defeat the GOP mea-
> sure was on a straight party line
basis, except that Langer and
Morse voted with 47 Democrats.
The two votes made it highly
unlikely that there would be any
general relief included in the bill
by the Senate, although other a-
mendment could be offered.
The Republicans had come up
with their proposal at a secret
caucus only a few hours earlier
when it became obvious they
would have trouble beating down
the Democratic amendment offered
to the Administration's omnibus
tax revision bill.
The Republican plan was to give
about 960 million dollars of annual
tax relief by a $20 annual cut to
f each taxpayer who did not use
certain other relief provisions car-
ried in the bill.
The House version of the tax
measure carries no general income
tax ut.
Dividend Income
Also in the bill as approved by
the House and now being consider-
ed in the Senate, taxes would be
eliminated on the first $50 of div-
idend income, and the taxpayer
could deduct from his tax bill 5 per
cent of his dividend income above
the $50.
In the second and subsequent
years the exemption would rise to
$100 and the credit to 10 per cent.
Revenue loss from the dividend
income provisions in the House
measure is estimated at 243 mil-
lion dollars in the next year and
814 when the plan reaches full
The over-all tax bill provides
for $1,477,000,000 in assorted tax
benefits for both individuals and
corporations in the first year.
Some Democrats contend most of
the benefits would go to the wealth-
y and the big corporations.

call vote and sending it to the
Sense of Congress
It voted 390-0, however, to at-
tach an amendment declaring it
to be "the sense of Congress" that

dollar fund authorized fo the de-
fensebofhSoutheast Asianbe used
l"on behalf of governments which
are committed by treaty to main-

proposal by British Foreign Secre-
tary Anthony Eden that Southeast
Asian countries negotiate a series
of nonaggression pacts with Red
China similar to the European Lo-

The amendment would not be
binding upon the President, mere-

As approved by the House, $986,-
500,000 in military and economic
aid would go to American allies
in Europe, $1,768,900,000 to the Far

Africa and India, 47 million to
Latin America and $165,500,000 for
supplementary programs.
A total of 141 Democrats and
118 Republicans supported the bill,
on final passage. Forty-seven Dem-
ocrats and 78 Republicans opposed
it. Rep. Reams of Ohio, the only
independent in the House, voted
for it.
The principal cuts made in the
bill by the House eliminated 75 mil-
lion dollars to enlarge the produc-
tion of British-made military air-
craft and 27 million earmarked for
development of special weapons,
principally for Europe.

Spy Death
By the Associated Press
The House Judiciary Commit-

providing the death penalty for
peacetime espionage, and re-
quiring the registration of for-

The bill, which also redefines

sabotage, is part of the legisla-

Dulles Hails
Overt hro Uv
WASHINGTONW e(-Secretary of
State Dulles Wednesday night
hailed the overthrow of the pro-
Communist government in Guate-
mala as a "new and glorious" vic-
tory over Red encroachments. But
he warned that "communism is
still a menace everywhere.'
In a 15-minute address prepared
for nationwide radio - television
broadcast, Dulles pledged that the
United States would not only op-
pose communism but would help
"alleviate conditions in Guatemala
and elsewhere" which might breed
Perilous Front
Dulles said the captureby com-
munism of any American state
would have established a "new and
perilous front" endangering the
entire free world.
But he said the situation in Guat-
emala "is being cured by the
Guatemalans themselves" - there-
by averting "at least one grave
danger" and setting an example
"which promises security for the
Dulles laid the blame for the
leftist bent of the overthrown
Guatemalan government directly
on the Kremlin. He said Commu-
nists seized on the Guatemalan
revolution 10 years ago and, in the
last few years, "openly connived"
with Guatemalan officials.
He said the foreign ministers of
Guatemala and the Soviet Union
"were in open correspondence and
ill concealed privity" (intimate as-
sociation) in attempting to "dis-
rupt the inter-American system"
and take the Guatemalan question
before the United Nations Security
The American states, he said,
then voted overwhelmingly to call
a meeting to consider Red pene-
tration in Guatemala and measures
needed to eliminate it. This meet-
ing has been scheduled for July 7
at Rio De Janeiro. However, some
diplomats now doubt it will be held
in view of the upshot in Guatemala.

lective defense arrangement in

Atom Case
May Get Ear
Of President
Ike May Review
WASHINGTON i - President
Eisenhower said Wednesday that
if Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer
wants to appeal to him from the
4-1 Atomic Energy Commission de-
cision that bars him from atomic
secrets, he will be heard.
The President added, however,
that the commission was made up
of men he trusted and that he had
sent them last December what he
described as a very disturbing re-
port on the famed scientist they
have now held to be a security risk.
News Conference
Eisenhower made his Oppen-
heimercomments at a fast-moving
news conference, his first in two
The conference ranged from the
matter of peaceful coexistence with
the Russians to the question of
whether Vice President Nixon has
been "hurting the Democrats' feel-
ings" and thus imperiling a bi-
partisan foreign policy.
On getting along with the Rus-
sians, Eisenhower said the hope
of the world would be that kind
of existence. But he said, and he
thumped his desk for emphasis,
this does not mean appeasement.
He authorized for direct quota-
tion: "I will not be a party to any
treaty that makes anybody a
slave; now, that is all there is to
Nixon and Democrats
On Nixon and the Democrats,
Eisenhower said his vice president
is an admirable man, a great
American who normally talks
pretty much the language of the
One questioner wanted to know
whether the President considered
the Oppenheimer case closed, or
whether he would consider a plea
if Oppenheimer turned to him.
Well, the President replied, he
believed that any citizen that be-
lieves himself abused had a right
to appeal and if Oppenheimer
wanted to make an appeal, of
course he would be listned to.
In event of an appeal, Eisenhow-
er continued, he supposed he would
ask the attorney general what the
President's power and responsibili-
ty were. He hadn't looked these
things up.
* Foreign Policy
The question of Nixon's speeches
came up twice during the confer-
ence. First, a reporter recalled that
Nixon had made a speech with the
thesis that the foreign policy of
Secretary of State Acheson in the
Truman administration was to
blame for the loss of China and
from that flowed the war in Korea
and the difficulty in Indochina.
"The Democrats didn't like it
very much," the questioner said.
Eisenhower had a three-point re-'
ply: First, each individual is en-
titled to his own opinions; second,
he admires and respects the vice
president, and third, his own job'
is to carry out responsibilities that
don't fall on others.
But he said Americans must seek
agreements among themselves on
foreign policy, because regardless
of which party takes over, there
must be stability.
Told that ordinarily the press re-'
gards a vice president as speaking
for the administration, and asked
whether the Nixon episode meant
this is not the case, Eisenhower
drew laughter by asking if the re-
porter was trying to make one
swallow a summer.

Normally, the President contin-
ued, the vice president would know
and reflect what is administration
In the second Nixon exchange, a
reporter said Rep. Rayburn (D-
Tex) "had sort of warned that if
any more speeches came out like
that (of Nixon's), that hurt the
Democrats' feelings very deeply,l
that there might not be any bipar-
tisan foreign policy,"

Education For Women
Discussed by Panel

Anti-Communist Junta

To Red


Shish kebab versus post-Kantian philosophy and a comparison
of the present and future roles of education for men and women,
provided some of the highlights of the panel discussion of "Higher
Education For Women," held last night as part of the special Sum-
mer Session program, "Woman in the World of Man."
Prof. Mirra Komarovsky, of the department of sociology, Bar-
nard College, and President Lynn T. White Jr. of Mills College in
Oakland, Calif., were the guest members of the panel moderated by
Marvin L. Niehuss, vice-president{

of the University.
Prof. Helen W. Dodson, of the
astronomy department and Prof.
Algo D. Henderson of the educa-
tion school represented the Uni-
versity faculty in the discussion.
Advanceis Made
There have been many more
advances made in the field of
higher education for women than
men, asserted President White.
The chief defects in men's educa-
tion, he enumerated, are that it
omits all references to the family,
has no community service and in
most cases ignores the creative
In dance and the applied arts
one can gain as much mental
stimulus and profit as from a
study of philosophy and the sci-
ences, he pointed out.
Both Prof. Komarovsky and
Prof. Dodson felt, however, that
the role of a woman in higher
education was to attain a know-
ledge of philosophy rather than
in cooking and allied fields.
Gain and Give
For every college student owes
something to society and that is
to gain and give wisdom to the
world, Prof. Dodson elaborated.
In the future, as Prof. Dodson
sees it, for economic reasons, men
will have to specialize so exten-
sively that they will have very
little time to learn the heritage of
the past.
Thus it will be the mothers who
must know our past heritage and
they may be the ones to trans-
mit it to their male children, she
commented. President White ac-
knowledged this and added that
then it will be left up to the wom-
en to experiment in education.


Educator Tells
of Women's
Modern Needs
"Women have special problems,
but don't need a special education
to cope with them," Mirra Komar-
ovsky said before an Angell Hall
audience yesterday in the fourth
lecture of the Woman in the World
of Man series.
Mrs. Komarovsky, chairman of
the department of sociology at
Barnard College and author of
"Women in the Modern World:
Their Education and their Dilem-
mas" spoke on the topic "What
Should Colleges Teach Women?"
It isn't colleges alone, but soci-
ety as a whole that has to be con-
sidered in this problem, she said,
"and it is the men who often suf-
fer most in the competition be-
tween the sexes." You never hear
of a women's ego being hurt from
being surpassed professionally by
a member of the opposite sex, but
the reverse is often the case, she
Woman's Education
Commenting on the present state
of women's education, Mrs. Komar-
ovsky said that nothing is radically
wrong with woman's colleges, but
the old-guard educators need to
do more experimenting and re-
search work.
She continued that the role of
women's education today is two-
fold: first colleges should provide
a full liberal arts background en-
abling their students to know their
heritage and own personality and,
second, the colleges should train'
their students professionally so
that they may find a job in the
industrial world. '
It is the balance between the
liberal education and professional
training that fits a woman into her.
present dual role in society. The
first role is being a contributor to
the economic or professional side
and the second role is being a
mother and home-maker.
