Debate In Detroit On Tax Question

MADISON, Wis., May 19.-(I)-
The Wisconsin Co-operative Milk
Pool's strike, which raged for six
days and resulted in one death and
the use of half the state's militia
force to combat widespread disorders,
ended today.
However, the National Guardsmen
continued to patrol trouble zones to
prevent groups over which the pool
has no control from interfering with
the marketing of dairy products. Adj.
Gen. Ralph M. Immell said he would
issue instructions for the withdrawal
of the troops later in the day.
A three-and-a-half-hour confer-
ence in the office of Gov. A. G.
Schmedeman ended at midnight in
agreement whereby the pool promised
to cease picketing activities and the
governor agreed to appoint a farmer-
controlled. committee to study the
problems of agriculture.
Action To Be Ratified
Although the pool conferees' action
has yet to be ratified by its arbitra-
tion committee, William B. Rubin, of
Milwaukee, counsel for the pool, said
as he emerged from the parley:
"The strike is ended."
He added that the arbitration com-
mittee would meet today and that
there was no question of ratification.
Listed for study were:
The abolition of the present system
of base and surplus in pricing milk,
butter, and cheese; reorganization of
the state department of agriculture;
divorce of chain store organizations
from manufacture and processing of
food products; a conference by the
,committees with Secretary of Agri-
culture Wallace for the establish-
merit of a fair price on dairy prod-
ucts under recent Federal regula-
tions; reporting of the committee's
findings such as are of national scope
to the President and Congress and
those of state scope to the Legis-
lature for immediate consideration.
Leaders Assert Rights
In a statement issued after the
conference, pool leaders asserted the
right of the farmer to withhold his
products from the market "to gain
his just demands and denied respon-
sibility for the acts of violence which
attended the strike."
"Outside and undesirable ele-
ments" were blamed. The leaders
called upon the governor to restore
normal conditions without discrim-
ination and pledged to call off the
strike forthwith.
The milk strike was called last
Saturday. Walter M. Singler, presi-
dent of the pool, refused to postpone
it even though the farm strike pro-
posed by the National Farm Holiday
Association was held in abeyance.

To Presidency

Other Posts At Meeting
Called By Johnston
C. R. Bradshaw, principal of the
Ferndale High School. was elected
president of the Southeastern
Roundtable at a meeting yesterday in

of the School of Education, vice-
president, and H. A. Tape, principal
of the Lincoln Consolidated School of
Ypsilanti, secretary-treasurer.

EUniversity High School, took up va-
rious problems of secondary educa-
tion.
Prof. George E. Carrothers of the
School of Education in a brief report
on "Trends in College Entrance Re-
quirements" stated that the emphasis
now shows a tendency toward the
acceptance of results of intelligence,
tests and grades, rather than subject
patterns as formerly had been the
the rule.
Dr. Clarence S. Yoakum, vice-pres-
ident of the University, reported on
the results of the American CouncilI
psychological examinations which
had been administered to about 8,000
seniors in high schools of the organi-
zation duirng the week of May 6 to
10. The examinations, similar to;
those given entering college fresh-
men, aims to judge the ability of;
high school seniors to college work.
The Roundtable is composed of
high schools of the five counties of
Wayne, Macon, Washtenaw, Oakland,
and Monroe. Professors of secondary
education and registrars of higherl
institutions of learning are also elig-i
ible for membership.

Dr. Hatt Tells
Engineers Of
Dam Problems
Dr. W. K: Hatt, head of the civil
engineering department at Purdue
University, spoke here yesterday be-
fore a combined meeting of faculty
and students of the civil engineering
department on special problems in
connection with the Hoover Dam.
Dr. Hatt is a member of the board
of consulting engineers and scientists
who have solvect many of the prob-
lems arising due to the unprecedent-
ed magnitude of the Hoover Dam
project.
Special cements which develop
considerably less heat during the pro-
cess of hydration were given particu-
lar attention by the board, Dr. Hatt
said.
A cooling system, installed in the
dam in addition to the system of in-
spection galleries usually built into a
large dam, will be kept in operation
for a number of months after the
dam is completed. It consists of a
central refrigerating plant from
which a system of pipes carry cooling
brine to various parts of the in-
terior.
Such cooling is necessary in order
that volume changes due to changing
thermal conditions be prevented, Dr.
Hatt said. Special testing methods
were developed which made it pos-
sible to store specimens in a room
whose temperature was maintained
the same as that of the setting con-
crete. The temperature of the speci-
men is gradually altered due to
chemical changes taking place.

COLLEGIATE
OBSERVER
By MASON HALL
Jaintors at the University of Min-
nesota are said to have drawn lots
to see who would carry the skeletons
from one building to another, when
a recent change made such a job
necessary.
The Rice Institute got some really
surprising answers to their question-
naire on love, kissing, and dates,
which they sent out to 50 of their
t y p i c a 1 co-eds. Thirty-two had
steadies, 30 preferred the romantic
type to the caveman, the majority
set the amount their date should
spend on them at $2, 25 were in love,
five answered "Not exactly," 38 would
rather be loved by one man than ad-
mired by 10, most of them said it
depended on the boy as to how many
dates he should have before he at-
tempted to kiss them. However four
said, "Why wait."
Students at Stanford University
who are fined for speeding but who
plead "no money" are being required
to wash the windows, and generally
clean up the Palo jail and courthouse
in lieu of fines. At this rate, students
may do more speeding for they can't
make that much money any place
else.
University of Washington co-eds
through an organization called the
"female aid society," are enable to
select and wear any sort of a fra-
ternity pin they like, just for the
bother of choosing and for the pay-
ment of a small rental fee.

the morning.

He will discuss the fundamental
ideas of this change which he has
devised, and Dr. D. L. Rich, recorder,
will explain the details.
All sophomores in the literary col-

programs.
