Labor Leader
Asks Roosevelt
Aid In Lockout
Seeks Check Of 'Struggle
Which Will Inevitably
Reach Civil War'
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24. - (P) -
President Roosevelt was called on
today by Harry Bridges, militant labor
leader, to intervene in what he termed
a coastwide lockout and prevent "a
struggle which will inevitably achieve
the proportions of civil war."
Bridges, president of the local coun-
cil of the Maritime Federation of
the Pacific, asserted shipping inter-
ests would isspe a closing order "some-
time today, tomorrow or Monday."
"It is a nationwide conspiracy of
waterfront employers, shippers and
allied financial interests," he said,
"to wipe out the maritime unions of
the Pacific coast."
Ask Investigation
The Maritime Federation, through
Bridges and Marvyn Rathbone, sec-
retary of the San Francisco Bay Dis-
trict, council, appealed to the Pres-
ident, Frances Perkins, Secretary of
Labor, and other officials for a con-
gressional investigation.
Thomas G. Plant, president of the
San Francisco Waterfront Employ-
ers Association, replied to Bridges'
"No lockout is contemplated, but
employers must insist that all mari-
time and longshoremen unions scrup-
ulously observe their contracts with
us if we are to continue relations with
"The Maritime Federation and the
west coast unions that have fallen
under its domination openly advocate
utter disregard for labor contracts
and arbitration awards."
Plant said employers would "wel-
come a complete and thorough gov-
ernment investigation of the Pacific
Coast maritime labor situation. In
fact, we have been earnestly endeav-
oring for months to bring about just
such an impartial inquiry."
Bridges said the decision to call
the lockout came after a long series
of conferences of shipping interests.
Sees 'Significance'
He declared it was "significant"
that the purported move coincides
with what he called plans of "profes-
sional union executives" in the east
and gulf to form company-controlled
"They may get away with it in those
places but they'll never break the
Pacific federation," he asserted.
Back of the reported tie-up are
years of controversy between em-
ployer and employe groups along coast
waterfronts, chiefly in San Francisco.
In 1934 a longshoreman's dispute re-
suited in a general strike in the San
Francisco Bay area.
When the strike ended, with the
loss of two lives and considerable
property damage, Bridges brought to-
gether maritime groups the length of
the coast and formed what employers
now call a "radical dominated" or-
ganization - the Maritime Federation
of the Pacific.
At present, 62 steam schooners, op-
erating in coastwise service, are tied
up over demands of crews for higher
wages and shorter work-weeks.

The Office of Educational Inves-

Case Charges
Considers Issuing Criminal
Charges Against Girl's
Mother And Doctor
SAN FRANCISCO, Jan. 24. -(I)-
A judge, who complimented Ann
Cooper Hewitt on her bearing as a
witness, pondered today whether to
issue criminal complaints against her
mother and two doctors, accused by
the 21-year-old heiress of duping her
into a sterilization operation.
She testified she thought it was an
Asked if she would have consented
to be sterilized had she been con-
sulted, she retored:
"Most certainly not!"
The girl, rated at 11 years old men-
tally by a psychiatrist, testified for
almost an hour concerning the op-
eration in 1934, the basis of her $500,-
000 damage suit against her mother,
Mrs. Maryon Hewitt McCarter; the
psychiatrist, Mrs. Mary Scally; the
diagnostician, Dr. Tilton E. Tillman,
and the surgeon, Dr. Samuel G. Boyd.
At the close of the hearing, Syl-
vian J. Lazarus, municipal judge,
told Miss Hewitt:
"You are a wonderful witness. It
isn't often we have people here who
testify as clearly and intelligently as
you have."~
He said he would announce his de-
cision next Tuesday.
Miss Hewitt, a tiny figure in the
witness chair ,told of suffering severe
abdominal pains and of being ex-
amined by Dr. Tillman, "who looked
at me and said he guessed I should
have my appendix removed," and by
Mrs .Sally, who asked "asinine ques-
She said Mrs. Scully represented
herself as a nurse and did not tell

Miss Hewitt, who speaks French

Dreyfus Trial
Discussed In
Radio Lecture
Prof. Winnacker Declares
Case Was Political One,
Splitting Two Parties
"The Drefus Affair as a Critical
Moment in the Hiswory of France"
was the title of a lecture delivered
yesterday by Dr. Rudolph Winnak-
er of the history department over
the University Broadcasting Service.
Emphasis upon the fact that the
Drefus affair was a political one,
one in which the conservatives and
the liberals took sides, was the key
point in Mr. Winnacker's speech.
Describing first the history of the
affair, Dr. Winnacker told how Drey-
fus, a Jewish French officer, was
convicted of treason upon scanty
proof, depending mainly upon "the
superficial similarity of the handwrit-
ing" on various treasonable letters in-
tercepted by the French Intelligence
Service to him.
Precipitates Crisis
Efforts to bring about a revision of
his trial precipitated a political crisis,
Dr. Winnacker explained, especially
when another French officer, with
serious evidence against him as to his
guilt of treason shown in incriminat-
ing letters which had a handwriting
similar to Drefus, was freed. More-
over, witnesses for Drefuss including
a former chief of the Intelligence
Service who was dismissed because of
his efforts for a new trial for Drey-
fuss, and a famous novelist were im-
When some of the evidence against
Dreyfuss was found to be forged, Dr.
Winnacker pointed out, the small
group of Dreyfusards enlarged,
"growing from an insignificant group
of idealists into a great party, rival-
ing their opponents for the first time
in numbers as well as resources."
The political elements of France
used the affair, Dr. Winnacker de-
clared, as a battleground. The army
officers, the Catholic clergy and its
devoted flocks, the monarchists, the
anti-Semites, some of the middle-
class, and others joined into a for-
midable party of anti-Dreyfusards,
Dr. Winnacker added. These forces,
he said, "were held together by con-
servatism and patriotism," and unit-
ed by the Catholic church. Liberals,
radicals, anticlericals, intellectuals,
and sincere republicans were their op-
Stress Follows
A period of stress followed, the
speaker declared, with the Dreyfus
affair "crystallizing once more a so-
cial division in France which had
been in existence for over a century."
When the republicans won out, due
to a split among the conservatives,
the Catholic church, which formed a
main part of the latter party, lost
its power, Dr. Winnacker continued.
Although Drefus was finally ac-
quitted and his name cleared, Dr.
Winnacker emphasized that this af-
fair was not a fight between truth
and falsehood, but a party struggle
between conservatives and radicals,
between the champions of the tra-
ditional France and those of the
new France.
When the republicans took over the
ministry, and after they had rehab-
ilitated Dreyfus, they began their
fight against the Catholic church, Dr.
Winnacker pointed out. Thousands
of monastaries and religious schools
were dissolved.
