Wl'ALXJUT OE 0A,000,000 MEN IS
Agreement Between Miners' Union And
Government Must Be Reached
Before Tuesday

(1y Associated Press)
LONDON, May 2.-The meetin
between the cabinet ninisters and
the negotiating committee of the
trades union congress ended at 1:3
o'elbck this Sunday morning. J. 11.
Thomas, who is secretary of the
railwaymen's union, announced
there was still hope that further
negotiations on the strike situation
would take place later in the day.
LONDON, May 1,-A general strike
involving 5,000,000 workers will go in-
to effect in Great Britain next Tues-
day unless the miners' union, repre-
senting 1,000,000 men who quit at
midnight, and the government reach
an agreement before that day, it was
decided at a trades union conference
here today.
The British government today pro-
claimed that "a state of emergency
exists" in consequence of the coal
strike, thus assuming powers from the
throne to employ troops or take any
other measures necessary to maintain
order and insure the welfare of the
population' The trades union confer-
ence decided to call out the employes
in the vital services, including the
transport workers, if no settlement is
reached in the miners' dispute before
Great Britain's coal miners, num-
bering more than a million workers,
suspended work at midnight, because
of failure of negotiations respecting
wages.lnd hours. There still is faint
hope that negotiations may be re-
opened but the mining industry was
at a standstill today.
The trades unions represent five
million workers and a general strike
*ould tie up all the nation's indus-
tries, including the regular transport
communications. It was announced
that the trades unions would offer to
maintain by voluntary arrangement
distribution of essential foodstuffs.
The government, too, has made com-
plete preparations to insure mainten-
ance of the essential services. King
George Friday night signed a procla-
mation of national emergency giving
the government full powers to employ
troops or take any other measures
necessary to mantain order and insure
the welfare of the people.
The position of the dispute is brief-
ly this:
A governmental subsidy was grant-
ed last July to assist the coal indus-
try, which was said to be losing
money. This subsidy, used to main-
tain the scale of wages, expired at
mlidnight last night.
Pending reorganization of the indus-
try along the lines recently recom-
mended by an expert commission ap-
pointed by the government, the own-
ers were faced with the necessity of
running the mines on their own re-
They offered the miners a uniform I
national minimum wage 20 per cent
higher than that obtaining in 1914 but
representing a reduction 13 1-3 per
cent in the present wages. The own-
crs also insisted upon an eight-hour
day instead of seven. The miners
refused to accept either the wage re-
duction or the lengthening of hours.
The government's first concern is to
provide for the milk and food supply
of the metropolitan areas of London
and the other thickly populated cen-
ters and the board of trade is inten-
sively preparing for an emergency.
Hyde Park again has been turned
into a place of assembly for hundreds
of motor vehicles for relief work, re-
calling wartime days and previous big
Great Britain is placed under what

proclamation that "a state of emer-
gency exists." 'While not a proclama-
tion of martial law or a formal state

prescribed under the law under which
the proclamation is issued is that the

campus today.with their walk-
ing sticks to celebrate Cane day,
the first of the many traditional
events occurring the final month
beforeCommencement. This is
the 37th year that Cane day has
Ibeen observed.
The traditiondates back to the
Itime when a picket fence sur-
lded the entire campus. In
the spring of the year when
Commencement was approach-
ing, a greater part of the fence
would mysteriously disappear
during the night, and a few days
later the seniors would be seen
on the campus carrying the
ji small-size pickets for canes.
Following the abolishment of the
fence, seniors have yearly pur-
chased canes, a distinct style for
eachcollege in the University,
Iand carried them for the few
f weeks preceding graduation.
The canes, labeled according
to colleges, are displayed in
I Wagner and company's store on
State street. Most of them are 1
made from Malacca wood, a
lightweight timber, and are dis-I
distinguished by color and a
sterling silver band near the
top. , Included also in the dis-
play is a cane carried by a mem-
her of the pharmacy class of

inch in diameter near the top f

WASHINGTON, May 1. - While
awaiting House consideration next
week of farm relief legislation, sena-
tors from the agricultural states con-
tinued their conferences today in an
effort to agree upon a measure de-
signed to command the support of a
majority in the Senate.
Those favoring the corn belt plan as
written into the Haugen bill, pending
in the House, called in a number of
senators to whom a spokesman for
farm organizations explained the
principal features of this proposal.
At the same time, Democratic sen-
ators from the cotton states initiated
a series of conferences with a view
to reaching an agreement on the fun-
damentals of farm relief on which they
might go along with senators from
the wheat and corn belts.
The chief stumbling block to a gen-
eral agreement on the Haugen bill ap-
pears to be the provision for levying
an equalization fee on basic farm
products. Some senators hold that
this provision is unconstitutional and
inadvisable, but others support it as aI
real method of solving the problem of
crop surplus and price fluctuation.
Although proponents of the Haugen,
bill have sought to enlist the aid of
representatives from the East, there
were new signs today of increasing
opposition in that section to legisla-
tion proposing price stabilization.
OUJDA, May 1.-Mohammedan en-
voys left here today feeling that they
were taking to Abl-el-Krim an ulti-
imatum which he would not accept.
The Riff leader has been given until

peace conference which adjourned to-
The envoys of Krim take to him
the message that the French and Span-
ish demand the immediate release of
all prisoners and require a substantial
advance of the Franco-Spanish milit-
tary front as a guarantee of good faith.
The delegation returning to the Riff
chieftain are certain, they say, that
he will not accede to the demands and
that war will result.
In fact they have declared that they
themselves will advise against ac-
ceptance of the proposal.

Iowa spurt was the sweeping of both hurdle events. Without 18 points,
