Result Of Conference Of
President, Labor Men
Is Request For Abeyance
National Federation
Wants Recognition
Licensing Of All Industry
Seen As Consequence Of
Turbulence In Trades
WASHINGTON, March 22.-(M -
In accordance with a request by the
administration, representatives of
automobile worker tonight urged
their union locals to hold in abeyance
any strike action pending further
word from President Roosevelt who is
seeking a peaceful settlement.
This request was made at a meet-
ing of the workers' representatives
within a few hours after they had held
a long discussion with the President.
After considering the proposal for
an extension of the strike truce, the
union men wired their locals in
Michigan and Indiana automobile
centers urging them "to hold in abey-
ance until final word has been re-
ceived from the President."
The meeting, held in the American
Federation of Labor headquarters,
was attended by most of those who
conferred with Mr. Roosevelt, Includ-
ing William Collins, A. F. of L. or-
ganizer. William Green, president of
the federation, did not attend.

Automobile labor representatives
laid their demand for union recog-
nition before President Roosevelt
Thursday after learning from Gen.
Hugh S. Johnson that the admin-

embraced a committee inquiry into
complaints of anti-union discrimina-
tion by manufacturers.
Crystallization of the threatened
strike of automotive workers depended
upon the White House conference.
Licensing of the entire industry may
be an issue.

resentatives of the unions organized

They declined to comment upon the
situation involved in the threatened
strike in the automobile plants in
Detroit, Pontiac, Flint and Lansing.
William Green, president of the A. F.
of L., and William Collins, organizer
at Detroit, remained in conference
with the President.
It was reported at the White House
that the President was hopeful of a
peaceful settlement of the contro-
versy. This ho'pe was shared by Gen.

Accumulation Of Over 1
Hour Lateness Will Be
Any woman having an accumulated
lateness of 60 minutes during the en-

Judiciary Council, according to a new
ruling passed at their recent meet-
The council is seeking to set a
standard of uniformity in such rules.
As the system is now each house has
its own set of lateness rules, and need
not send offenders in to the Coun-
cil until they deem it necessary. The
present plan, according to Harriet
Jennings, '34, chairman of Judiciary,
makes it impossible for the Council
to determine the seriousness of the

Mr. Thomas Connellan,

Ann Arbor, Michigan.
My dear Mr. Connellan:
It is impossible to give you information
sufficiently concise to be of help to you. At
the University of Chicago there is no detailed
supervision of students' private life. Upon
the basis of broad observation I judge that the
availability of beer in restaurants close to the
campus has created no serious problem; at least
none which so far has occasioned investiga-

Is Discussed By
Max Handman
Advocates More Efficient
Use Of Resources For
Pointing to the relative insignifi-
cance of the question of isolation
versus internationalism,Prof. Max
Handman, of the economics depart-
ment, stressed and recommended a
more efficient use of America's natural
resources and encouragement of sci-
ence to bring about more equitable so-
cial distribution of goods and services,
in his lecture in Natural Science Audi-
torium yesterday on "Can and Should
America Be Self-Sufficient?"
Making use of the rhetorical de-
vice of the dialogue the speaker pre-
sented first the argument of the na-
tionalist who believes that America
should be self-sufficient, and then the
counter-argument of the opposing
school of thought. Throughout the
fictional repartee between these two
imaginary characters, it was evident
that Professor Handman tended to
lean towards the internationalist be-
lief that the economic well-being of
America would be immeasurably
harmed by a permanent policy of self-
However, a new element was in-
troduced into the debate by Pro-
fessor Handman, in the form of an
academic person who interrupted the
two speakers and belittles the argu-
ments of the first two speakers with
a third philosophy of what an eco-
nomic system should do in America.
This imaginary speaker says in
part, "Nationalism or International-
ism, self-sufficiency or world economic
relations are stabs made in the dark
at ghosts which are of our own con-
juring. The real problem is this, what
have we done with the resources, na-
tural and human, with which the
Lord has so magnificently endowed
us. You talk glibly about there being
too much wheat when people go
hungry or too much cotton when
millions go naked.
Concert Series Is
Continued Sunday
Three members of the faculty of
the School of Music, Thelma Newell,
violinist, and Ava Comin Case and
Louise Nelson, pianists, will unite
their efforts in the next program of
the Faculty Concert Series Sunday
at 4:15 p.m. in Hill Auditorium.
Miss Newell is a graduate of the
School of Music and has supple-
mented her American training with
extensive study abroad. She has ap-
peared often in concerts and is con-
sidered a performer of merit by critics.
A feature of the program will be
two groups of numbers for two pianos
to be played by Mrs. Case and Miss
Nelson. Both of these artists have ap-

Fresh Air Camp Is
Summer Dream of
Bill And Brothers
This is a story of Bill and his three
brothers who desire, above everything
else, a trip to the University Fresh
Air Camp this summer.
They live .in a three-room shack
along the railroad tracks near the
Huron river. Bill has little chance to
swim, play baseball or football. Al-
though 12-years-old he looks only
seven, being undernourished, shy, and
According to the camp counsellor,
who was in charge of Bill last sum-
mer, he is a willing helper, taking both
praise and blame with good grace. His
personal appearance, though shabby
because of inadequate clothing, was
neat. Bill has shown a propensity for
detail work, such as rounding up the
boys, and it is the belief of the coun-
sellor that he has the qualities of a
leader if given the chance to cultivate
Bill and his brothers went to camp
last year. They can hardly wait until
summer comes to go again. Whether
they or many other similar cases go
to camp depends on student contribu-
tions. Support the "All Campus Jam-

It was announced last night by

more than 170 campuses, including
Michigan, by the officers of the Na-

The criteria received here by Jo-

of all fraternity houses.
