Dickinson Describes Method
Of Deciding Labor Differences

The policy of the President's Auto-
mobile Labor Board in the 2,000 cases
of discrimination that have come be-'
fore it since its inception were termed
yesterday by Prof. Z. Clark Dickin-
son, recently appointed as temporary'
examiner for the Board, as pointed
towards an attempt to settle amicably
the differences of employers and
workers in the automobile industry.
Professor Dickinson, in his position,
as examiner, personally hears the
cases in the Board's offices in Detroit
and issues reports to that body, from
which whatever action necessary is#
taken. Most cases that are brought up
before him, he declared, involve com-
plaints by workers who accuse the.
company of discharging them without
regard to the seniority rules set up in
the automobile code.-
The method in which cases of dis-
crimination are settled was outlined;
briefly by Professor Dickinson, whoI
pointed out at the same time that ap-

proximately 60 per cent of them have
been settled in favor of the worker
by requiring the company to put the
complaining employee back on its
The majority of hearings arise out
of complaints issued by the union
to which theworker is affiliated, al-
though, he continued, some of the
workers personally institute proceed-
ings before the Board. A letterfac-

by the examiner, actinghfortheBoard,
to the employing company.
occasionally this first communi-
cation from the Board is enough to
bring the company to terms, and
it will voluntary offer the man his
job back. Usually, however, he said,
the employer answers the board by
mail within ten days, and a copy of
this letter is forwarded to the com-
rlainant, who may then demand a

A minute later he again counted
from under the basket on a pass from
Meyers, and then ran Michigan's total
to five points with a successful toss
from the foul stripe. A "hope" shot
by Rudness from near the center
stripe ended Michigan's scoring for
the half - seven points while the cool
Illini were collecting 22.

ously at all adverse decisions in the
first half and participated whole-
heartedly in the presentation of the

ing the 10 to- 14 point lead as the

Of Mill Tax Bill
Expected Soon
Act To 'Measure' Annual
Appropriation For State
College At Lansing
LANSING, March 4 --(A)- A bill
is expected to be introduced in the
Legislature when it reconvenes to-
morrow night to "measure" the an-
nual appropriation for Michigan
State College on a. mill tax basis.
The proposal is similar to one al-
ready submitted for the University.
The M. S. C. bill provides for an ap-
propriation equivalent to .30 of a
mill on each dollar of the total
state valuation. Under the bill, M.
S. C. would receive approximately
$1,700,000 a year, including exten-
sion needs.
The University bill provides for a
.73 mill appropriation. Dr. Alexand-
er G. Ruthven, President of the insti-
tution, has asked the Legislature to
pass the measure as a means of guar-
anteeing permanent funds.
Gov. Frank D. Fitzgerald is opposed
to the principle of the two measures.
The Administration has proposed that
all State revenues be centralized in
the general fund, with no board de-
partment, or institution permitted to
extend more than the specific ap-
propriation set by the Legislature.
Under the two proposals, the Uni-
versity and M.S.C. would be entitled
to receive the full amount of the mill
tax levies despite the amount of the
specific appropriation the Legisla-
ture may fix.
The. Senate has passed two bills
abolishing the State property tax of
$3,500,000 by repealing the present
statutes appropriating .6 of a mill to
the University and .2 of a mill for
M. S. C. Similar measures passed
by the 1933 Legislature were vetoed
by former Governor Comstock.
Kentucky Players
A idEducation, Say
Sniversity Women
Nearly five million Americans with-
out the benefit of public schools -
that's the way the Caney Creek Play-
ers, who come here next week from
the heart of the Kentucky Moun-
tains, characterize the people in the
hill country of the South.
The work of the Players is the se-
curing of funds to aid education in
and around Caney Creek-to erect
decent living quarters, and to correct
a condition which makes the moun-
taineer of today "further removed
from the twentieth century than his
ancestors were in the eighteenth."
The Caney Creek education project
was explained yesterday by Miss Gen-
eva Smithe, secretary of the Univer-
sity Museums, and Mrs. Margaret Un-
derwood, assistant librarian, two
women who 'have long contributed
to the cause of progress in the Ken-
tucky Mountains.
For years Miss Smithe and Mrs.
Underwood have sent them money
When a local gift shopburned recent-
ly, Miss Smithe salvaged cards of all
sorts and other materials, sending
them to the school in Caney Creek.
Books, writing materials, and clothes,
which have off and on found their way
from Ann Arbor to the Kentucky
hills, have done much to keep the
school running.

On Investigation
Is Postponed
Senate Committee Fails To'
Give A Decision On The1
Postmaster Inquiry
WASHINGTON, March 4 -(R)- A
decision was postponed today by the
Senate Postoffice Committee on the
demand of Sen. Huey Long (Dem.-
La.) for an investigation of Post-
master General James A. Farley af-
ter it had received a letter from the
cabinet officer flatly denying "the
base insinuation that I have at any
time used the power and prestige of
my office for personal financial gain
or private interest."
The committee agreed to meet
again tomorrow to consider the pro-
posal for an investigation and di-
rected a subcommittee meanwhile to
study the data submitted today by
Secretary Harold L. Ickes in reply to
a senate resolution.
Farley, in his letter to the commit-
tee, answered Long's charges one by
one, and concluded with a "complete
and explicit" denial that he had used
his office for profit.
In reply to Long's charges that
he was interested in the sale of ma-I
terials to companies engaged in pub-
lic works contracts, Farley said he
had "conducted no private business
since I have occupied the position of
Postmaster General."
Prior to taking office, he said, he;
resigned as president of the General
Builders Supply Corp. and since that
time had not taken part in its man-
He added he had received no money
from this source except $525 in a
dividend on his stock,
The committee also sent a letter
to Senator Long asking him to furn-
ish by tomorrow the names of the
witnesses and the substance of the
evidence he proposed to obtain from
The letter said Long, in appearing
before the committee in, executive
session today, could not "recall" the
names of the witnesses he would call.
Secretary Ickes reported to the
Senate that he had never investigated
Farley and had no record of con-
tractors, sub-contractors or those
supplying materials for projects di-
rected by other agencies of the gov-
The Senate was told the General
Builders Supply Corp., which Sen-
ator Long said was headed by Far-
ley's brother-in-law, had been award-
ed only one contract according to
Ickes' records.
James Stewart and Co., which Long
said had been favored in bidding on
PWA projects, also had received only
one contract, the report said.

ATHENS, March 5 - (Tues-
day) -(P)- AfteW a smashing
land victory the government
rushed mine layers to Saloniti
early today to mine the harbor's
entrance and prevent any at-
tempt by the rebel fleet to put
in art the Macedional port.
This action strengthened re-
ports that the government was
determined to "smoke out" the
insurgents fleet from Souda Bay,
off Crete, and force a decisive sea
battle today.
(Copyright, 1935, by the Associated Press)
ATHENS, March 4.-Government
troops won a slashing.victory against
r'ebels in Macedonia today, driving
them back across the River Sturma,
after killing and capturing an un-
known number.
Badly armed, the rebels retreated
in terror after fire from government
machine guns, advices from Mace-
donia said.
Bullets rained into the ranks of the
fugitives as they plunged into the
river and swam for their lives to the
east bank, near Bulgaria. There the
scattered forces rallied and took up a
new position.
Government success on the naval
front also was reported.
A terrific aerial bombardment was
reported to have put the flagship of
the rebellious Greek fleet into flames
late today and the government un-
leashed fresh forces to stamp out civil
war in Macedonia and Crete.
Five planes which left with their
bomb racks loaded to capacity for a
raid on Souda Bay, rebel base in Crete,
returned to report they made two di-
rect hits on the 9,450-ton cruiser Av-.
eroff, pride of the Greek navy.
Already severely battered, the Av-
eroff was struck in the stern by the
250-pound high explosive missiles.

Seen To Kill Man
Authorities Expect To Get
Results From Probe In
City Today
Aided by sheriffs from Washtenaw
and Monroe counties, Dean Walter B.
Rea will begin a systematic investiga-
tion today of all student automobiles
registered with his office in an effort
to find a hit-and-run driver who
killed Ed Larrow, 51 years old, La-
salle farmer, yesterday, some distance
from Monroe.
Larrow's body was found by Mon-
roe County sheriffs some 15 miles
from the place where they began the
search. A Toledo motorist told them
that the car, which he saw strike the
man, bore a University student per-
mit tag.
According to the witness, the car
was of a light make, either a sedan
or coach.. He said it was red or mar-
oon. The body of the car was dirty
and the license obscured. He could
not see the license number, and be-
lieved the plate "might have been a
1934 one." He said he was certain
of the University permit.
Assisted by Sheriff Jacob Andres,
Dean Rea searched all day yesterday
for the owner of the death car. The
witness stated that it was damaged
where it struck Larrow, and the dean
believes that this is the evidence
Sheriff Joseph Bairley of Monroe
County telephoned Sheriff Andres last
night, stating that his men were fol-
lowing up possible clues near the scene
of the crime, and said he would arrive
in Ann Arbor with deputies sometime
this morning.
There is some disagreement in the
stories told by Monroe County sheriffs
and by the witness. The witness stated
that the car, which had the dead
man on the fender, went but a little
distance from where it struck him.
Sheriff's men say, however, that they
traced the car for'15 miles from the
place where it is believed that it struck
Larrow until they found the body,,
dumped in the ditch.
The owner of the car may or may
not be in the University now, Dean
Rea explained. He pointed out that
the search will be especially difficult
because of the fact that many stu-
dents are driving wth their 1934 per-'
mits and will continue to do so until
March 15, while others have the 1935
The car is not necessarily owned by
students living near Monroe, the dean
stated. "Any student could be driving
in that vicinity," he added.
Dean Rea emphasized that "we
hope to trace that number sometime
Committee Will
Hear Testimony
Of J S.Worley
Prof. John S. Worley, head of the
transportation engineering depart-
ment and curator of the transporta-
tion library, will leave at noon today
for Washington, D. C., where he will
testify before the Senate committee

on the proposed Eastman bill.
The bill, as proposed by Joseph B.
Eastman, Federal Coordinator of
Transportation, is designed to bring
about a coordination under single
authority of all forms of transporta-
tion, including railroads, busses,
trucks, airways, and boat lines.
It further includes a complete re-
organization of the Interstate Com-
merce Commission, enlarging that
body to include 16 members, a chair-
man selected by the President and
a coordinator also appointed by the
President. The two executives thus
appointed would constitute an execu-
tive committee, and the work of the
commission would be divided into five
or six sections predicated on the va-
rious types of transportation facili-
ties included.
"While I believe that the coordina-
tion clause is a sound measure," Pro-
fessor Worley said, "I am opposed to
the reorganization plan for the simple
reason that at the present time no
one knows just what the proper form
of organization should be."
Under its present form the Com-
mission includes only 11 members,

terday in the tense fight to win the
Democratic. mayoralty nomination.
As the vote came in ward by ward,
the two contestants rode side by side.
Professor Muyskens' defeat was not
made definitely certain until the late
results from the second ward came in.
Conlin won his greatest victory in this
ward, the vote being 97 to 64.
Professor Muyskens lost in the Uni-
versity ward, the seventh, 74 to 63..
His own ward, the third, also went
against him 75 to 44.
Sadler victorious
Prof. Walter C. Sadler of the engi-
neering college defeated William H.
Faust, former alderman, for the Re-
publican nomination for Council
president, 2,041 to 1,612. Professor
Sadler led in every ward except the
fifth, where he lost by two votes,
and the six, where he lost by 74 votes.

A traditional background may be
found for the reputedly antagonistic
attitude of Ann Arbor policemen to-
ward students in a squabble which
took place between the two factions in
about the year 1879. It is recorded
in an undated article from the Ann
Arbor Democrat. The trouble start-
ed at the post office, which in those
days did not provide the facilities
which they do today. It was the cus-
tom for students to assemble and
file through the office between the
hours of 7 p.m. and 8 p.m. to receive
their mail.

ed rescue merely augmented the
number of arrests. \
"While the officers were endeavor-
ing to preserve order, they were
hooted at, and occasionally some
cowardly wretch would throw stones
at them," the Democrat records.
Eventually, under the mayor's or-
ders men of the town were mustered,
special officers were appointed, and
the college boys were driven off of the
streets, which were then patrolled
until midnight. It was arranged that
