taken on incorporating the new

was stymied by the opposing par
ty. Ed Stevens, veteran UP floor
leader, touched off the blocking
duel by proposing that districts
be subdivided to allow for more
efficient campaigning and closer

their representatives. Student
Party legislators killed the move
to suspend the rules and offered
a counter-proposal. After the

that a sizeable tax cut was pos

cause of his military background
and "inexperience". Truman add

Federal spending can be dras

their jobs throughout the sum

that the faculty members em

be forced to take a good-sized
cut in pay. However an announ
cement -from the Consolidated
University administration yester
day assured everyone concerned
that he will be paid the- amount
he expected to receive before it
became evident that there would
be a deficit.
"We have requested appropri
ations for future summer ses
sions," Gordon Gray said yes
terday. "We have every hope that
the requests will be granted, and
that in the future all salary com
mitments will be on a contrac

President Gray pointed out
that much credit for the resto
