said they may ask for a conference
Moiday with company officials on
wage demands.
The strikers, who said they were
determined to "sit in until Christmas"
to obtain pay increases, were provided
with coffee, sandwiches and tobacco
by their wives and 150 women em-
ployes who also quit Friday noon
but left the building.
Homer Martin, presidAit of the
United Automobile Workers of Amer-
ica, said that if the company did not

Five Black Legionnairs
Get Life Sentences
DETRQIT, Nov. 28.-(/P)--Five al-
leged members of the Black Legion
charged with the "thrill killing" of a
Negro World War veteran were con-
vi ted of first degree murder tonight
by 'a jury in Recorder's Court. The
mandatory penalty is life imprison-
The case was given to the jury of
seven women and five men after
Jude Donald Van Zile instructed
th m' they could return one of two
verdicts-guilty of first degree mur-
der, or acquittal.
'The mandatory penalty in event of
conviction is life imprisonment. Three
of The' :defendants, Harvey Davis,
John Bannerman and Ervin D. Lee,
all'eady are under life sentence for
the 'Black Legion "execution" of
Charles Poole last May, the case
which first brought activities of the
hodded 'night-riders to attention of
law enforcement authorities.

tion of fraternity hazing, according
to Mann.
The resolution reads as follows:
"Hell-Week in any form shall be
aipolished from and after this date.
"During the period of pledgeship
fraternities shall try to inculcate in
their freshmen the development of
friendship, a sense of respect and
duty to the fraternity and the Uni-
verity, the importance of scholar-
ship and the removal of characteris-
tics which are a hindrance to be-
coming a good member of society.
'We believe further that during
tois period of training there should
be no physical mistreatment of
pJedges, no indecent practices, no in-
terference with class work, and that
all training activities should be con-
fined to the chapter house. We be-
lieve also that the period of pledge-
ship should end with the beginning of
the ritualistic ceremony."
Houses that declared they had
changed the treatment of their
pledges as a result of this resolution
remarked almost unanimously on
their increased concern over the ac-
ademic side of the pledge's existence.

Building Featur
New Rackham
Structure Of Monumental
Type Used For Beauty
And Permanence

This is the final article in a series
that has been run this week dealing
with features of the new Graduate
School. Next week The Daily is print-
ing a series about the Baird Carillon
and the Burton Tower in conjunction
with the dedication of the carillon.
Because it is a monumental type of
building, designed with a view to its
permanence and beauty as a me-
morial, the new Rackham Graduate
School will have several features in
its construction work, that will cause
it to stand out among the buildings
of Ann Arbor, according to Dorr H.
Martin, '11A, supervising architect.
To create permanence and stability,
Mr. Martin said, any monumental
type of building must have a heavier
steel frame-work and denser concrete
than an ordinary building. But due
to conditions that must be met in the
architecture of the Graduate School
it will have construction features that
go even farther.
Care Against Cracking Taken
"In the first place," Mr. Martin
stated, "owing to the climatical
changes and conditions in Ann Arbor
precautions must be made to keep
the building free from cracking by
the contractions of the concrete. In
a building that is designed to stad
for a good many years, this is even
more important. Therefore, the con-
crete being put into the foundation
and superstructure of the first two
floors of the Graduate School is of a
3,000-pound density, which, while noi
of an exceptional strength, is abou
one and one-half times as strong a
ordinary building concrete.
"In the pouring and mixing of thi
concrete, care must be taken to keep
excess water out. Long diagonal stee
rods through the concrete help at
tain this strength of structure also.'
A second construction problem, Mr
Martin pointed out, comes from th
design of the building which provide
for floors above a main auditorium
on the first and second floors. Thi
creates a need for exceptionally heav
steel girders to support these floors
as there i no lower support excep
from the sides of the auditorium. Fo
this purpose, the steel framework o
the top floors will be the heavies
and strongest of any building in An
Trusses Weigh 80 Tons
The trusses for this part abov
the auditorium, consisting of tw
horizontal chords joined by diagona
members. weigh about 80 tons each
with the top chord about 26 tons an
the lower, 28. The gusset plates
steel plates which connect the chord
with the diagonal members, are a
inch and one half thick, while th
rivets used in the trusses are on
inch indiameter and some qver nin
inches long.
Rivets gripping six inches of meta
as the maximum are usually the long
est used in building construction, an
from this can be concluded the siz
and strength of the building. S
heavy are these rivets that a secon
compression gun is required to hol
them in place while they are bein
driven in the truss.
Careful supervision and testing i
done of all the concrete work pu
in the building, on the grounds wher
construction work is going on. Th
sand and stone for the concrete ar
tested, and samples of the concret
are tested in cylinders in which the
are subjected to a breaking pressur
of nearly 115,000 pounds seven to 2
days after mixing.
The amounts of stone and cemen
going into the concrete are not meas
ured by volume, but by a scales int
which they are measured and the
