object of the talks here between
Premier Mussolini and Col,-Gen.
Hermann Wilhelm Goering, Ger-

This informant said Count Gale-

project in half a dozen conferences
last week with Sir Eric Drumond,
British amabassador.'

Common Action In Spain
The initial objective of such an
arrangement, it was stated, would be
a common line of action in the Span-
ish civil war. The ultimate objective
would be to oppose any communist
disturbance of the status quo any-
where in Europe.
Diplomatic authorities said France
would not necessarily be excluded
from this alignment, but would be
admitted only on the terms of the
other three; this would mean pri-
mairly she would be compelled to
abandon her alliance with Soviet
Ultimately, these same sources
said, Premier Mussolini - would like
to see a revival of the Four-Power

but which failed to mature.

Molinari Leads-
In Symphonic
Concert Here,
Detroit Orchestra To Play
In Choral Union Series
At Hill Auditorium
The Detroit Symphony Orchestra,
under the guest direction of Bernar-
dino Molinari, will be heard under
the auspices of the Choral Union con-
cert series at 8:15 p.m. today in Hill
This concert will mark the third
Ann Arbor appearance as guest con-
ductor, of Molinari, famous leader of
the Auguseot Symphony of Rome for
26 years. He first conducted here
in 1931 and again in 1935.
Since the death of Ossip Gabril'-
owitsch, distinguished conductor,
composer, and piano virtuoso, Victor
Kolar has directed the Detroit Sym-
phony with the assistance of guest
conductors. Among the most dis-
tinguished guests is the Italian
maestro, Molinari. This spring,
however, Franco Ghione, also of the
Augueseat Symphony, formerly as-
sociated with it as violinist, is ex-
pected to take over the leadership of
the orchestra.
The program which Molinari has
arranged includes a modern work by
Bloch called "Solomon," a Jewish
rhapsody for violoncello and orches-
tra, the 'cello portion being played
by Georges Miquelle. Preceding this
number the program will be opened
by Tschaikowsky's Overture-Fan-
tasia, "Romeo and Juliet," and com-
pleting the first half of the program
the Bach-Respighi Passacaglia will
be played.
The latter half will be devoted to
numbers from Richard Wagner, in-
cluding the Prelude to "The Master-
singer"; the Overture and "Bacch-
anale" from "Tannhauser"; Funeral
Music from "Twilight of the Gods;"
and "The Ride of the Valkyrie" from

Dearth Of Talent
For NBC Program
May Limit Variety
Lack of suitable talent for Mich-
igan's coast-to-coast broadcast may
cause the program to become almost
entirely a musical program, Albert G.
Miller, director of the program said
Because the program is to be one
that will reach millions of listeners,
the talent which Mr. Miller requires
must be more than mediocre, both
for the benefit of the sponsors and
the University.
Operetta Conflicts
Other factors have also caused the
program to be slow in taking shape
It was discovered early yesterday
that the Gilbert and Sullivan oper-
etta "Yeoman of the Guard" being
presented on Friday night, will con-
flict with the broadcast. About 40

Cut In Expenditures And

path that will carry it around Sen-

ate committee on government reor-
Senator Robinson (Dem., Ark.),
majority leader, announced today
that the President's recommenda-
tions would not be handled by the
Byrd committee and said he planned
to cooperate with House leaders in
creating a new, joint committee to
pass on White House plans.
Byrd wishes to slash expenditures
far deeper than Mr. Roosevelt pro-
posed in connection with the drive
to overhaul the governmental ma-
chine. The Virginia senator has crit-
icized other parts of the White House
plan also.
He said today he had not gone into
the question of whether his commit-
tee should act on the President's pro-
"That," he asserted, "is not for
us to say. However, upon the Pres-
ident's invitation I have discussed
the matter (reorganization) with
him, and was advised by him that
the recommendations of the Senate
(Byrd) committee * * * might be
used effectively to supplement his
own investigation."
Byrd is opposing White House pro-
posals for the two new cabinet posts,
an increase in cabinet salaries and
abolition of the Comptroller Gen-
eral's office.
But he said the Presidential ideas
set up a "framework for reorganiza-
tion" within which he hoped his
committee could make recommenda-
tions for consolidation and, especial-
ly, reduction of personnel.

He said the strike situation is
significant because it is the first ad-
vance of automobile workers to form
their own union, outside of the com-
pany. He termed the method of sit-.
down strike both effective and non-
violent. General Motors has done
three things in opposing the de-

claim by the company that the work-
ers had split, and the "coup d 'etat"

Agreement Reached After
Both Sides Confer All
Day With Gov. Murphy
Company Will Not
Resume Operations
Strikers Settle Only After
G.M. Pledges It Will Not
Move Dies, Machinery
LANSING, Jan. 14.-United Auto-
mobile Workers leaders agreed late
tonight, the Associated Press learned
from an authoritative source, to have
sit-down strikers evacuate General
Motors Flint plants at 9 a.m. Mon-
This agreement came, it was ap-
parent, after union heads were as-
sured by General Motors that no at-
tempt will be made to reopen plants
or to move dies and machinery.
Actual negotiations for complete
settlement of the widespread auto-
mobile strike will be continued in
Governor Murphy's office by GM and
UAW officials two hours after strikers
leave the plants Monday, a high
source said.
Latest Developments
These were the latest developments
here of the Governor's all-day par-
ley, attended by William S. Knudsen,
General Motors executive vice-pres-
ident, Homer Martin, United Auto-
mobile Workers president and other
officials of both sides. Governor
Murphy succeeded Wednesday in
bringing together the labor and man-
agement representatives to discuss
"an immediate and peaceful settle-
ment" of the labor dispute which has
resulted in bloodshedtand caused
the unemployment of tens of thou-
sands of men.
With a few minor points to iron
out, the conferees resumed their con-
ference in' the Governor's office late
tonight after a recess. They indi-
cated they might continue in session
several hours.
As the conferees met, hundreds of
Michigan National Guardsmen con-
verged on Flint to bring to 2,300
the strength of troop forces guarding
against recurrence of rioting and
gunfire that injured 27 persons in
that strike-torn automobile center
Monday night.
Perkins Comments
Secretary Perkins at Washington,
quoting Governor Murphy as feeling
"courageous" about the strike situa-
tion, said the Government's next
move awaited the outcome of his
conference with opposing leaders. She
disclosed Presidential intervention
has been discussed many times.
More than 114,000 of General Mo-
tors' automotive workers were idle
tonight because of the strikes and
resulting parts shortages: Material
shortages forced four additional
plants to announce closing plans to-
At North Tarryton, N.Y., manage-
ment of the Fisher Body and Chev-
rolet plants announced the two fac-
tories employing 4,000 men will be
shut down completely by Monday,
with 800 workers released tonight.
Alfred G. Gulliver, manager of two
Chevrolet parts plants at Saginaw,
employing 1,700, announced they will
close at 2 a.m. Saturday because of
lack of materials.
Meeting Interrupted
The first meeting of the opposing
leaders in the Governor's exceutive
suite was interrupted for more than
an hour while union representatives
went to another room to confer with
members of their "strategy board"
which must approve any decision

Whether any proposal had been
made could not be learned. The Gov-
ernor and conferees all declined to
make any comment.
Utmost precautions for secrecy of
the meeting were taken. State Police
guarded the locked doors of the suite,
and window blinds of the rooms were
drawn tightly.
The conference brought together
William S. Knudsen, executive vice-
president of General Motors; Donald-
son Brown, head of its finance com-
mittee, and John Thomas Smith,
chief corporation counsel, with Hom-
er Martin, U.A.W.A. president;
Wyndham Mortimer, first vice-presi-
dent of the Union, and John Brophy,
director of the Committee for In-

he United States with the absolute

He said the "censorship of the audi-
ence" is the most important one af-
