Session Ends
In Michigan
LANSING - Republicans had
their eyes more on the 1956 elec-
tions than on the 1955 legislative
session as session business was
concluded yesterday.
The lawmakers, returning for
the two-day cleanup meeting re-
quired by the constitution, com-
pleted their work and most of
them went home.
A few will remain to hear the
gavel fall on the 1955 session at
noon today.

WASHINGTON (P) - Yesterday
the Senate passed an armed forces
reserve bill aimed at building up
a combat-ready reserve of 2,900,-
000 men by 1960.
Active reserves, including the
National Guard, now number a-
bout 800,000.
The roll call vote was 80-1, with
only Sen. William Langer (R-ND)
voting no.
Will Return To House
The Senate action virtually
assures that President Dwight D.
.. DONG KINGMAN, teacher of
art at Hunter College, will give a
lecture, "Discussion and Demon-
stration of Watercolor Techni-
ques" in the Architecture Audi-
torium at 3 p.m. today.
His talk will be a highlight of
the two-day Michigan Regional
Art Conference.
Kingsman is represented in
numerous art collections, among
them, the Museum of Fine Arts,
Boston; the Metropolitan Museum
of Art; the Museum of Modern
Art, New York, N.Y.; San Francis-
co Museum; the Chicago Art In-
stitute, and Cranbrook Academy
of Art.

analysis, and development of

horn; and Lewis Cooper, bassoon.

limited form, legislation he had
tabbed near the top his "must"
The House already has passed
the bill but it will return there

However, both Senate and
House voted for 9 key provision of
President Eisenhower's program.
This would permit youngsters
aged 17-20 to volunteer for six
months of active training to be
followed by 7Y years of service
in an active reserve unit. Such
volunteers would be exempt from
the regular draft.
Adjustment Sought
A Senate-House conference com-
mittee is expected to try to adjust
differences in the programs ap-
proved by the two bodies.
Chief of these is the question of
compelling men who have com-
pleted active military service as
draftees or volunteers to do addi-
tional training with reserve units.
The House approved compulsion
for all service men drafted or
enlisted since the Korean armis-
tice, July 27, 1953.
Service vs. Escape
In the Senate, it was argued
that this would require double
service liability for veterans while
thousands of draft-age men es-
caped all military duty.
The Senate voted instead that
30 days after the bill becomes law,
any man entering the service
through the draft or enlistment
could be forced to take active re-
serve training on completion of
active duty.

Simultaneously, the "Young
Turks" in the House made a bid
for a voice in selecting top Re-
publican candidates in 1956.
Rep. George W. Sallade (R-Ann
Arbor) said the Young Republicans
would meet at his home in Ann
Arbor in about three weeks and
later hoped to embrace original
Eisenhower supporters, backers of
State Republican Chairman John
Feikens and' similar Liberal Re-
publican groups.
Sallade said the "Young Turks"
will be looking for a "Young vigor-
ous and progressive" candidate for
fthe Republican nomination for
governor and will seek "New faces"
for other state offices.
