Labor Proposes
Work Insurance
For Every State
Unemployment Relief Is
Proposed By American
Federation Of Labor
'Paid ByEmployers'
Legislation By Congress
And State Governments
Necessary For Plan
CINCINNATI, O., Nov. 21.-(,)-In
an epochal step the American Fed-
eration of Labor's executive com-
mittee today submitted a plan of
compulsory unemployment insurance,
proposing it be adopted by every
state, paid for by empoyers and ad-
ministered by a state commission.
The benefits would not be denied
to those out of work because of a
trade dispute, or if nonmember-
ship in a labor union was a condition
of employment.nn
Recognizing that conditions vary
in different states, the plan recom-
mendsenactment of a federal law
to supplement state legislation.
The insurance plan was contain-
ed in the report of the executive
council to the federation's fifty-sec-
ond annual convention, which open-
ed today. The report, covering a
wide range of subjects, also express-
ed opposition to a sales tax, urged
a seven-point economic program by
the government to secure a more
equitable distribution of income, ad-
vocated a fight for restoration of
former wage scales of government
employes, asked modification of the
Volstead act and advocated action
against extended use of convict labor
and a strong stand to secure enact-
ment of the child labor amendment.
On modification, the report said
indications are that action to legal-
ize real beer will be taken at the
short session of congress convening
Dec. 5.
The report says there "is no gen-
eral movement to increase wages,"
and adds that "if capitalism is to
continue it must pay the price of
economic security for the produc-
ers."
A system for supplying workers
with information on jobs for which
they are fitted is recommended. The
report proposed a "job market"
through state employment services
under federal co-ordination.
Reviewing the last year, the re-
port pointed to the enactment of the
Norris-Laguardia anti-injunction law
as the "outstanding achievement of
the A. F. L. during the last session
of congress."

Treatment Of Foreign Students
Is nfair, Says Noted Educator

IJoterrsL r1111 1r t l 4NL.e"t'L'UtI"

The Smiths have it. All sorts of
Smiths, coming from such distant
placesaas Massachusetts and New
York and Iowa and Oklahoma; and
they have it over the Millers, in sec-
ond place, by the good, substantial
total of 41. There are, in other
words, 77 Smiths and 36 Millers at-
tending the University, if the 1932
Student Directory is as accurate as
it should be.
The Smiths are a varied lot. There
are the normal Josephs and Roberts
and Williams and Marys and Mar-
garets. But not all Smiths are just
every day Smiths with common
Christian names. Smiths like dis-
tinction too, and some of their first
names prove it. There is Ernestine
for instance. Or do you prefer Har-
ter? And what of the highly eup-
honic Lenoir? Then there are two
Ione Smiths. There is even a Hula
Smith, but that's nothing-wonder of
all this world's wonders: there is not
one John Smith in the entire 77.

I

The University authorities sihotid
look into such a situation.
As for the Millers not much can
be said. They,.do not give the Smiths
anything like a fight, and they are
themselves closely pressed by the:
Johnsons, Browns, and Andersons.
The Millers are the great disappoint-
ment of the 1932 Student Directory.I
Not only in lack of numbers do they
disappoint, but also in first names.
For there is not a genuinely distinc-
tive first name among all Michigan's
Millers. The Millers are certainly
nothing to write about.
In third place are the 33 Johnsons,
only three jumps behind the Mil-
lers. The Browns follow with 31. And
then, in fifth place, comes the real'
surprise, the Andersons. Surely- no
one ever thought the Andersons
would be up there in fifth place, with
30 of their clan in the University.
Yet there they are, but six behind
the Millers. It shows what real ef-
fort can do.

Supervision of foreign students in
the United States should be trans-
ferred from the Department of Labor!
to "a department of the government
that views its work from the stand-t
point of education and culture." de-
clared Dr. Stephen P. Duggan, di-
rector of the Institute of Interna-
tional Education, at a meeting in
Town Hall, New York City, accord-
ing. to an article in the New York
Times.
Criticizes U. S. Attitude
Referring specifically to the recent
ruling barring alien students from
accepting jobs for pay in this coun-
try and the ruling permitting stu-
dents to remain only 60 days before
their passports expire, Dr. Duggan
said that the United States has made
the foreign student "an object of
suspicion and distrust from the very
beginning of his preparation to come
here."
"The difference in attitude of the
United States Government and of
European governments to foreign
students is to the discredit of the
United States," he said. "The aver-

age American consul, instead of ex-
pressing his pleasure when a foreign
student applies for a visa, as the
average foreign consul does to the
American student going abroad, puts
him through a quiz about himself,
his family, his finances, his pu'rposes
in going to the United States, which
in some instances is little less than
scandalous."
"Fundamental Question"
He told of an Italian scholar, the
winner of an American fellowship,
who was forced to prove to American
authorities at Naples that he could
read and write. Dr. Duggan conclud-
ed by suggesting that the supervi-
sion of foreign students be trans-
ferred to the Office of Education in
the Department of the Interior, for
"what we are discussing today is not
a labor problem but a fundamental
question of international relations."
Using native rock and concrete,
Henry Francis of Waynesville, N. C.,

storage house.

Undaunted Lion Hunter Makes
Second Safari In Missouri Wilds

I

By WILLIAM G. FERRIS
This fellow Denver M. Wright, St.
Louis manufacturer, is going to have
his lion hunt after all, no matter
what newspapermen, deputy sheriffs,
and common citizens of Missouri
have to say. Lion hunting, Mr.
Wright believes, ought to be good
funs, even if the lions are little, tame
and entirely unsuspecting fellows.
That appears to be the only deduc-
tion from the news that Mr. Wright
yesterday entered Popular Bluff, Mo.,
with two lion cubs, announced he was
"going hunting," and left for an un-
known destination.
Decorous Society Member
Lion hunting has occupied the at-
tention of Mr. Wright and Mr.
Wright, along with his lions, have
occupied the attention of staid Mis-
sourians for over a month now. Mr.
Wright is a decorous member of St.
Louis society, a fairly well-known
manufacturer, a member of the St.
Louis School Board, and was once
the police commissioner of Brent-
wood, St. Louis suburb. Until five
weeks ago, Mr. Wright's life was nor-
mal, happy and friendly. He was a
good citizen.
Then something happened. Mr.
Wright knew that Missouri had many
wild acres, but that nobody had ever
shot a real, honest-to-goodness, live
lion in all those acres. Something
had to be done about it, and Mr.
Wright, purchasing two lionesses
from a stranded circus, started out
to do it. "You can't hunt' big game

in Missouri, so I decided to supply
my own quarry," said Mr. Wright.
"Just sort of bringing Africa to the
United States."
No Lions Wanted
The good, law-abiding folk of Mis-
souri felt that Africa was a nice placej
to read about, and lions might pos-
sibly make charming playmates upon
rare occasions, but they were cer-
tain that southern Missouri, "by
heck," didn't want either Africa or
lions. They organized against Mr.
Wright and he was chased from one
Missouri town to another, always
looking for a place to release those
lions.
Finally he let them out of their
cage on an island in the Mississippi
River. Then he went to the main-,
land to eat. When he got back the
two lions had been killed by a deputy
sheriff who simply did not under-
stand the adventurous spirit tugging
at Mr. Wrights heart.
Well, it appears that Mr. Wright
and two lion cubs are roaming about
southern Missouri again. Regardless
of what the people of Missouri have
to think and say, Mr. Wright is go-
ing to kill that lion.
BAD SEASON FOR BREADON
ST. LOUIS - (P)-The 1932 season,
which saw the St. Louis Cardinals
slide from the top of the heap well
down into the second division, was
the club's most disappointing year
since Sam Breadon gained control of
the organization.

dates seeking recounts must deposit
' $5 for each precinct which is to be
counted for the second time. The
deposits are returned to candidates
if results of the election are changed.
The first recount petition involv-
ing a state office was filed by Bur-
nett J. Abbott of Saginaw, Demo-
cratic candidate for secretary of
state, who, on unofficial returns is
trailing Secretary of State Frank D.
Fitzgerald by approximately 3,500
votes.
Anticipating the filing of a recount
petition by Mr. Abbott, Mr. Fitzger-
ald, in order to protect his lead, ask-
ed for recounts in 749 precincts.
These petitions involve Wayne, Oak-
land, Macomb, Genesee, Kent, Goge-
bic, Gratiot, Kalamazoo and Muske-
gon counties.
Many of the other recount peti-
tions were filed by candidates who
are ahead on unofficial returns, in or-
der to protect their apparent victor-
ies.
Charles Bowles, candidate for Con-
gress in the 15th Congressional dis-
trict, requested a recount. Other re-
count petitions were filed by:
Rep. Dana H. Hinkley and Eugene
Brown, candidates for state repre-
sentative in Mackinac and Emmet
counties.
Rep. Walter F. Jackson and Law-
rence O'Neill, candidates for the same
office, in Lake and Mecosta counties.
24 candidates for various county
offices.
Public School Sporting
Events May Be Free
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 19.j-(/P)-A plan
whereby competitive interscholastic
athletics, like physical education,
would be an integral part of the St.
Louis public schools' program is be-
ing considered by the board of educa-
tion.
Should the system be adopted, a
director of athletics would assume
centralized control of competitive
sports, and the usual practice of sup-
porting sports events through sales
of admissions would be discarded.
Dr. David C. Todd, a member of
the education board, stands sponsor
for the proposed change, contending
that if interscholastic athletics are
to be continued at all, "adequate pro-
vision for their organization, develop-
ment and support" should be made.
Union Offers Free
Thanksgiving Meal
To Lucky Dancers
A free Thanksgiving dinner will be
given the couple holding the lucky
ticket at the Union's special Thanks-
giving dance tomorrow night, accord-
ing to an announcement by John
W. Lederle, president of the Union.
The ball room will be decorated to
present a Thanksgiving atmosphere,
with a log fire burning in the mas-
sive fireplace at the end of the floor,
Lederle said.
The dean of women's office has
granted 1 o'clock permission for
women attending the dance, he add-
ed. The Thanksgiving dinner prize
will take the place of the turkeys that
have been raffled in the past.
Belford Forest, English playwright,
will read his newest play at the Uni-
versity of North Carolina this fall.

That wasn't all. After a little while
another car stopped, and then an-
other, until the student, in a panic,
broke into a run and retreated to the
astronomical observatory, where peo-
ple understood him.
