And Shotguns Against
Crowd Of Strikers
Machine Guns Are
Ready, Reports Say,
Compromise Proposal Is
Rejected By Union As
19-Day Strike Continues
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., May 28.
-(R)- Fierce rioting broke out on
the waterfront here and at San Diego
late today, sending eight men to hos-
pitals and resulting in less severe in-
juries to scores of participants, as
shippers and striking longshoremen
were reported to have reached a dead-
lock in negotiations to settle the long-
shoremen's strike.
Tear gas bombs were hurled by
police and shotguns were fired into
the air as officers sought to halt the
fury of a crpwd estimated between
1,000 and 2,000 men, who surged along
the Embarcadero here. Reports said
machine guns had been set up along
the waterfront here but Chief of Po-
lice William J. Quinn refused to say
what weapons had been placed at
the disposal of more than 500 police-
men sent to the embattled district.
Follows Rejection Of Compromise
The disturbance followed receipt of
unconfirmed word that the Interna-
tional Longshoremen's Association
had rejected a compromise proposal
of shipping men before federal medi-
ators in another of the many moves
made toward settlement of the 19-
day-old coastwide walkout, now in-
volving more than 25,000 men.
A mounted officer, attempted to
ride back the men from the sidewalks,
was jerked from his horse and at-
tacked by several men. Immediately
other officers came to his aid and a
wild melee ensued. Other mounted
patrolmen were hauled from their
horses and a call brought more than
500 policemen to the scene in patrol
Officers Bombarded
The milling throng grabbed bricks,
sticks, and other missiles and hurled
them at the officers. Police wielded
their clubs and many of the rioters
Driven back by the increasing num-
ber of patrolmen, the throng quieted1
momentarily as ambulances entered
the district and removed injured men1
to hospitals.
Hurriedly rallying, the rioters again
bore down on the officers, knocking
down the blue-coated men and beat--
ing them severely before other po-
licemen could come to their rescue.,
Three policemen and three rioters,
were taken to the Harper Emergency
Hospital, suffering from scalp lacera-,
tions and tear gas. Four' men were
placed under arrest as the rioting was,

Foundation To
Re-Establish Its
Old Bible Chair
Church Of Christ Founded
Chair Here, Will Renew
Previous Work
It was announced recently by the
Michigan Christian Foundation, of
which Prof. L. A. Hopkins is the pres-
ident, that the Church of Christ (Dis-
ciples) will re-establish its Bible chair'
work in Ann Arbor July 1.
The Church of Christ was the first
religious body to definitely establish
the teaching of the Bible by the side
of state universities according to Pro-
fessor Hopkins. The first of its ef-
forts was the institution of its Bible
Chair here in Ann Arbor. The first
occupant of this chair, who later be-
came internationally famous, was
Professor-emeritus Herbert L. Willett
of the University of Chicago. Follow-
ing him were Prof. George P. Coler
and in later years Prof. 'Thomas M.
Iden, well known on the campus in
his connection with the "Upper
Since Professor Iden's death the
work of the Church of Christ has
been temporarily suspended. Recent-
ly, however, the Michigan Christian
Foundation has been o r g a n i z e d
through which the Church of Christ
will conduct its student work in Mich-
igan in the future.
Certain endowment funds and
other financial resources have been
made available to the'new Founda-
tion, and, under its auspices, H. L.
Pickerill of Indianapolis has been
appointed to the Bible Chair. He
will become its active director begin-
ning July 1., He will not only have
charge of student work in Ann Arbor
in which the Church of Christ is rep-
resented but will co-operate with Dr.
E. W. Blakeman in setting up an
inter-denominational approach upon
the campus. Mr. Pickerill will also

Anti-War Group
Sends Protest
To Gov. White
The Michigan League Against War
and Militarism yesterday sent a com-
munication to Governor George White
of Ohio, protesting against the meth-
ods of handling the strike in Toledo.
The letter follows:
"The Michigan League Against War
and Militarism, an organization ded-
icated to oppose and fight war and
its manifestations, has been following
the course of events in the present
Toledo strike very closely. We feel that
the presence of the National Guard
at the present time is wholly un-
necessary and provocative to violence.
The action of the guardsmen in fir-
ing upon the workers and attacking
the workers is to be severely con-
demned, especially in view of the wan-
ton and unnecessary taking of life.
"Such actions can only but help
remind one of the repressive and ter-
rorist methods of Nazi Germany. After
a careful consideration of the affair
we feel that it would be to the best
interests of all concerned to have the
troops recalled. We therefore most
strongly urge you to use all your in-
fluence in the immediate withdrawal
of the National Guardsmen from

People Responsible For
Rebuilding Our Judicial
System, Speaker Says
Scoring the indifferent attitude of
the American people as the reason
for the breakdown of the American
system of justice, Judge James H.
Clancey, Detroit, addressed the mem-
bers of the Exchange Club and their
wives at the semi-annual Ladies'
Night banquet held last night in the
"We must make our courts of law,
courts of justice," Judge Clancey
stated, "if we want to make an end
of organized crime in this country.
Our judicial system has broken down,
and it is up to the people of the
United States to set it up again, for
it will not recover of its own accord."
Common law procedure, which was
adopted from that used in England
250 years before the birth of this na-
tion and which has been outlawed
by the people that wrote it, is the
basis of our outmoded judicial system,
Judge Clancey said. Crime is costing
this country one billion dollars a
month, and we do nothing about it, he
"Police pick up and convict a num-
ber of underlings, but the 'big shots'1
get away to keep on with their ne-
farious trade," the judge stated. "Our
courts of justice are the laughing1
stock of the world. Bribery, techni-J
calities, perjury, and intimidation are
the tools of the criminal lawyer, who
is no better than his rat of a client."
Judge Clancey claimed that con-
nivances on the part of persons in
authority is the only possible reason
for the pardoning of persons who
should be behind the bars, and that
connivance and incompetence are to
blame for most, if not all, of the prison
breaks. Reform of the habitual crim-
inal is impossible, Judge Clancey said,
and they should be "ruthlessly exter-
Solution of the difficulty lies, Judge
Clancey stated, in the formation ofI
laws which will reach the members ofa
the underworld. The rest of the people
would behave themselves without laws,
in his opinion.;

Council Is To
Decide Upon
Future Today
Undergraduate Group To
Make Choice Between
Revision Or Dissolution
Bursley Urges All
Members To Come
Proposed Plan Provides
For Reorganization Of
Meeting at 4:30 p.m. today in the
Union, the new members of the Un-
dergraduate Council will decide on
plans for a revised organization or
will accomplish a complete dissolu-
tion of the old body.
The new representatives will meet
with the retiring members who voted
at their last meeting to take no action
antil the new men, who will be in
school next year, were selected. Gil-
bert E. Bursley, '34, president, has
urged all council men, new and old,
to be present at the meeting.
Under the present constitution,
election to the Council is automatic,
each student holding an important
campus position becoming a member
"ex officio." Previous to this year
there has been a general campus
election to select the representatives.
A proposed plan, which will be de-
bated today, provides for the abolition
of the present membership basis, ex-
changing it for one by which leaders
in active campus organizations would
receive membership. Under this plan
provision would be made so that all
campus groups, considering them-
selves of general interest and activity
to merit it, could make application
for representation in the Council.
This change is planned, according
to Bursley, in the hope of broadening
the activities of the council and en-
couraging student interest.

court, the Michigan Bell Telephone
Co., announced here today that it
would comply with the order of the
State Public Utilities Commission is-
sued May 9, reducing rural phone
rates, providing an optional rate ba-

The announcement was made by G.

the action was taken "to avoid fur-
ther costly litigation."

extra rental on the hand set phones
for 18 months will be relieved of the
charge, although the company's or-
der does not contemplate a' refund
for those who have paid longer than
18 months.

W. Cowden of the English depart-
ment, chairman of the committee on
the Hopwood Awards. Miss Gale will
speak on "Writing As Design," at 4
p.m., June 1, in the Union Ballroom.
Professor Cowden stated that names

and not beforehand as in previous
years. Names of the judges will also
be given at that time, he said.

The first of the Hopwood Lectures
was delivered in 1932 by Prof. Robert
Morss Lovett of the University of Chi-
cago. Max Eastman was the lecturer
last year. The Hopwood Awards con-
test itself was established in 1930-31

ified, while the minors are open to
all undergraduates. In 1932, the Com-
mittee established a special contest

Statistics Show 80 Per Cent Of
Teaching Graduates Have Work

The latest statistics tabulated froml
the questionnaires submitted to Mich- J
igan alumni, who have graduated
during the last four years with teach-
ers' certificates, show that over 80
per cent are now employed, and 44
per cent of these are teaching.
Dr. George E. Myers, chairman
of the advisory committee of the Bu-
reau of Appointments and Occupa-
tional Information, is in charge of
this compilation, and he has as his
main objective the determining of
how Michigan graduates are meeting
the present economic conditions, and

University can best use to aid its pres-

the necessary readjustments.

proved that although some graduates
have been unemployed more than 25
months, a majority of the earlier
classes have had less than four
months of idle time. However, in the
last classes of the two years the un-
employment period has been propor-
tionally a great deal longer.
Other results showed that 14 per
cent of the graduates of the 1932
and 1933 classes who are employed
receive less than $500 a year, and 35
per cent of them earn less than $750.
In answer to the question as to
how, leisure time was spent, the men
graduates declared indoor sports were
their chief recreation. Outdoor sports
