New Congress Leaders Favor Truman Deal WASHINGTON. Jan. 3—<l.E) — The 81st Congre s convened today with the “Truman Deal” firmly in control. The House and Senate returned to Democratic stewardship after two years under the Republicans. The new leadership was confident it would pass the President’s foreign and domestic program over the opposition of a divided Republican minority. The program on which Mr. Truman led them to v.ctory in the election includes higher taxes, expanded economic controls, civil rights, repeal of the Taft-Hartley labor-management law and continuation of the cold war against communism. The administration phalanx scored a smashing victory in the opening hours. It came on a proposal to trim the power of the House Rules committee, often the graveyard of administration bills. The house shouted overwhelming approval of the move af er a preliminary test vote gave advocates of the change a 275 to 142 margin. The House Republican leadership nad opposed it but 49 of their members bolted on the test vote and went along with he Democrats. On the Senate s de, the Truman program’s changes seemed enhanced by a sharp split in the ranks of the Republican opposition. It camp to a head in two party conferences before and after the brief Senate session. < —Daily News Photc CONSTRUCTION will start Apr. 1 on the $1 million LAS building which will replace Old College. Planned to accommodate 3500 persons, the structure will be the first unit cf a proposed general classroom-office center. Featuring complete separation by floors ot offices and classrooms, the four-story building should be completed in time for September classes. Actress Jumps From Comedy to Tragedy From a teen-age part in an American comedy to a tragic role In a famous Greek classic is quite a jump for an embryonic actress. Deidre Broughton has made that jump, however, and will be seen as Jocasta, the wife-mother of Oedipus, in the experimental theater's production oi Sophocle’s "Oedipus the King,” | opening Thursday evening at 8:30 in Bovard. Among Miss Broughton’s recent stage work was tne understudy role in productions of "Kiss and Tell.' In "Oedipus.” she will be a dramatic figure, overshadowed in tragedy only by Oedipus himself. LOYAL WIFE Jocasta is presented as the loyal and loving wife of Oedipus, but site has enough of the maternal attitude toward her husband-son to make her a dramatically powerful figure. It is she who tries to curb Oedipus’ hot temper, the temper which has made him kill his father. It is Jocasta, also, not believing the oracles who predicted the tragedy she is an unwitting part of, who tries to convince Oedipus that the gods wisely govern human destiny and that no human power can reveal the gods’ will to man. FROM LONDON This is the first of Miss Broughton's roles in which she has portrayed an older woman. Originally from London, she did radio, stage, and film work there. Other major parts in “Oedipus” will be played by Phil Goodman, Ray Scott, Jack Gariss. Al Lipsey, Victor Rittenband, and Wally Richards. “Oedipus” will have a three-day run in Bovard. with performances Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Admission is 50 cents or free with activity books. War Memorial Drive Reopens Driving toward the second of the Living War Memorial scholarships, Trovets announced yesterday that organizations and individuals who expressed approval of the plan but lacked time to follow through may contribute this week. To add incentive io the second phase of the campaign. KLAC disc-jockey Bob McLaughlin brings 15 radio and recording star; and a 33-piece band to Bovard auditorium Thursday, Jan. 6. Admission to the noon star-studded song and uance shindig will be by donation receipts. Contributions to provide scholarships for needy sons or daughters of dead combat veterans will be accepted this week in SU 406 and Booth One in tront of the Student Union. SC Stinks! (It's the Lawn) SC stinks! But only for a fortnight or -o according to Al Dearing, head gardener of the north campus. Twen y-two truckloads of finely ground steer manure are being spread over 25 acres of campus grrenery. Out-of-season athletes are shooting the bull ail over the la wns. Ammoniates in the stuff, which smell, will have been bacterio’.osi-cally broken down into nitrates, which don't smell, by that ime. as one learn> in Bacteriology 10L. These nitrates will then be converted into soluble amino acids, which will become grass, which might be fed to cows, which might keep the cycle going indefinitely. Barnyard odors fil’ed University library last year when zeaious gardeners spread the fertilizer coo close to the air conditioning intake fan. More care will be taken this year, according to another gardener questioned. DEAN ROBERT E. ViVIAN, College of Engineering, gives Old College a final brush up “Just' for old times sake."

Daily Trojan, I wonder if I may impose on your kindness to the extent of asking you to publish in your columns this letter of thanks to all at SC who were so extremely kind to Frank Tripucka during his recent hospitalization in Los Angeles? I know of no other way in which I might avoid the risk of omitting someone who has earned our heartfelt gratitude for his or her kindness to Frank. I spoke with Frank on Friday, the day after his return. He could not say enough in appreciation of the many courtesies shown him by everyone connected with your university: your president and your medical officers first of all, the other officers of the administration, Bill Hunter and Jeff Cravath and their staffs, the members of the varsity football squad who visited him and presented him with a Trojan blanket and autographed football, the coeds who plied him with cookies and sweets. Frank said these many acts of kindness almost made him happy he had suffered his distressing injury. To the gratitude that Frank Tripucka feels toward all of you, may I add the appreciation of the administration, faculty and student bndv of the University cf Notre Dame, and my own personal thanks? With every good wish, I am Sincerely yours, (Rev.) John H. Murphy. C.S.C., Vice-President, Chairman Faculty Board in Control of Athletics. “H” joins “R” in class admission cards for spring semester registration.
