Fitzpatrick said yesterday in a statement, "the proposal to acquue Siacuse university would use up state funds and not attain additional educational facilities." The Dewev administration proposed last week t n a t New York t a k e o \ e r an upstate college, "prefeiably Syracuse university," for operation as a state university. The plan was contained in a report by administration leaders serving on the 30-member temporary commission studying the need for a state university.

Democratic state legislative forces, he added, would press for a new state university "One that will meet the needs of New York state."

The votes were 306-273 and 308-272, respectively. Other amendments still to be voted on v. ould reduce tax levies on \\ar, drought and flood victims and on small family-operated businesses. Closer margin Assembly circles predicted that the government's margin might be close in the voting on tax relief tor war victims, but it was generally believed that it would win out The tax bill, as presented b the government, is designed to produce approximately 125.000,000.000 francs (about $1,000,000,000) in levenue. Saturday w h e n Communist and rightist deputies sought to amend the measure with proposals for exemptions for those in small income brackets they were defeated bv 322 to 262. De Gaulle's Speech A .prime topic in parliamentary circles as the deputies began arriving m the national assembly to vote on Schuman's plan was Gen. Chailes De Gaulle's'speech yesterday an St. Etienne, where the wartime French leader said he rould arvomnlish pconomir reform by sctapping the present trade unions and creating labor-management associations designed to eliminate t"fie possibility of strikes. De Gaulle, whose French People's pany (RPF) won a large following in the last municipal elections, accused the Schuman cabinet of replacing "true government" by "experiments."

L=P)-- A contention that meat rationing would not work without price controls and that a combination of the two- would "stifle" meat production came todav from Senator Wherrv (R-NebJ The Nebiaskan expiessed this opinion in commenting on plans of Senator Flander.s (R-Vt.) to introduce legislation shortly authorizing the agriculture department to prepaie for meat rationing to a point just short of putting it into effect. Under the plan Flanders outlined o \ e i the week-end, Congress would have to enact still another law to get actual rationing under way.

Help for Europe and Asia,-" tax cutting, the high cost of living, lent control and the housing shortage, military preparedness and, health insurance are a few of the top issues. And the list probably will grow. A complicating factor is -that this is a general election year. Democrats want to regain'the control of congress they lost rto the GOP in 1946. The Republicans 'hope to put their presidential nominee in the White House for the first- time since Franklin D. Roosevelt started his term in 1933. Political Undertone So an undertone of practical politics is almost certain as each party bids for the favor of the voters who will decide the political fortunes next November. The first week of the new session will be devoted primarily to speechmaking and strategy huddles by congressional leaders, with a few committeeb starting to lay the groundwork tor future legislative actions. The Senate Republican policy committee and the House Republican steering committee will .meet during the week for decisions which will go far toward shaping the majority party's legislative program to counter the proposals President Truman will outline Wednesdav in his annual state-of- the union message. 'Personal Appearance The chief ^executive, will go,.to. the c'apitol in person to deliver that message to a joint session of the Senate and House. His economic report on Friday and his budget message next Monday will be delivered by messenger. The first actual battle of the session probably will take place in. .the House, over the GOP-backed. tax reduction bill.
