Armies Clash
Rebel Negotiators Confer;
Government 'Will Never
Come To Terms'
Chang's Situation
Said To Be Weak
NANKING, China, Dec. 18-(Fri-
dayI-(R')-Two armies fought today
while secret negotiators debated set-
tlement of a civil war that may cost
the lives of both leaders, Generalis-
simo Chiang Kai Shek and his captor,
Marshal Chang Hsueh Liang.
,The Nanking regime, although as-
serting its armies were highly suc-
cessful on the Shensi battlefront and
declaring its refusal to compromise
with the rebel Marshal Chang Hsueh
Liang, was known to be considering
terms on which the leader of the up-
rising at Sianfu, capital of Shensi,
proposed to free Chiang and end the
civil war.
Loyalists Gain
Loyal divisions were reported
steadily driving the rebel troops back
on Sianfu, over which government
planes were flying in awesome dem-
onstrations. It is in Sianfu that the
government asserts the generalissimo
is held captive, with several of his
generals, by the rebel "Young Mar-
Deep interest centered, however, in
the closely guarded conferences at
Nanking, where James Elder, British
adviser to Marshal Chang, was closet-
ed with Madame Chiang Kai Shek,
her brother-in-law, Dr. H. H. Kung,
minister of finance and temporary
head of the government, and her
brother, T. V. Soong, exminister of
finance and high in government
Elder arrived by air from Sianfu to
communicate terms on which Mar-
shal Chang proposes to settle the
crisis which has plunged China into
civil conflict. Only the highest lead-
ers of the Nanking government were
permitted to talk with him.
Chang Scored
The government, however, out-
wardly maintained an unyielding at-
titude toward Marshal Chang. The
control Yuan (council) voted that
the rebel chieftain should be con-
demned to public execution for his
rebellion, a crime "so enormous * *
it cannot be expiated should he
(Chang) die a thousand deaths."
After the meeting between Elder
and Nanking leaders an official
spokesman asserted it "would be be-
neath the dignity of the government
to negotiate with Marshal Chang,
whom we considered a bandit. Nan-
king might be prepared to offer Mar-
shal Chang assurances for his per-
sonal safety but the government will
never come to political terms with
It was nevertheless known that ef-
forts to obtain a negotiated settle-
ment of the crisis were going forward.
7,000 Men Idle
As Fibre Plant
Enters Strike
DETROIT. Dec. 17.--(P)-Officials
of the United Automobile Workers of

America today claimed more than 7,-
000 workmen are idle because of
strikes in four auto plants.
The list was augmented today by
a strike at the National Automotive
Fibres Co., manufacturers of floor
pads, cushions and upholstery, where
it was claimed 1,500 are idle as the re-
sult of a strike shortly after 6 a.m.
Strikers maintained picket lines
but did not remain inside the factory
as they have at the two plants of the
Kelsey-Hayes Co., wheel manufac-
turers and at the Aluminum Co., of
While the strike at the fibre com-
pany was being called, officials of the
Kelsey Wheel Co. in Windsor, Ont.,
announced that 25 per cent of the
men who struck there yesterday had
returned to work this morning, and
the plant had resumed operations.
The strike at the fibre company
was called, Stanley Novak, organizer,
said, because ten union shop mem-
bers had been dism.issed yesterday.
The strikers also are demanding Wage
increases of 25 cents an hour for both
ben and women. Approximately 60
per cent of the employes are women,
union officials declared.

Half Employed Included
"The result of these exemptions,"
Professor Haber claimed, "is that
only half the gainfully employed will
be included in the old age annuity
system. Others are exempt and. since
they do not pay, they build up no
annuities 'from which they might
benefit. If they should need aid
after they reach 65, they would have
to apply for it from the straight pen-
sion fund, wait for an investigation
of their resocurces and receive aid
only according to their needs."
