On National Agreement,

GM, Labor Agree
Major 'Battle Field' Now
Resides In Closed Shop
By RALPH W. HURD
DETROIT Jan. 15. - (Special to
The Daily)-A growing conviction
that the United Automobile Workers
will win a national agreement from
General Motors Corporation, that the
union probably will not achieve a
sole bargaining contract, and that
such a contract would not be ad-
visable even from the union's point of
view, was observed among labor au-
thorities and press correspondents

strikers from all General Motors
plants under way today, official ne-
gotiations will begin at 11 a.m. Mon-
day in General Motors headquarters
The most significant development
of the conference Thursday in Lan-
sing, it is generally believed, is epi-
tomized in the following phrase,
taken from the General Motors let-
ter to Gov. Frank Murphy :
" will meet . . with the
representatives ofthe International
Union of United Automobile Workers
of America, for the purpose of col-
lective bargaining. "
In view of the consistent and tra-
ditional anti-union, policy widespread
in the automobile industry, this tacit
recognition of the UAW is of his-
With a national agreement con-
sidered inevitable by most observers,
the major "battle field" is the issue
of whether or not the union will be
recognized as the "sole bargaining
agency" for General Motors em-
ployes-one of the eight demands
listed by the union. Settlement of
the other demands, including speed-

Martin, declaring the agreement
constituted recognition of the union,
hailed i as forming "a basis for real
collective bargaining." General Mo-

Without Satisfactory SQlution
Power Of RfuC
WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.-(/P)-
Senator Byrd (Demn.-Va.), who has
dedicated his life to lopping branches
off the spreading tree of government,
watched with vexation today while
the Senate gave a long lease of life
to one of the largest boughs.
Vainly, Byrd struggled to change
a resolution extending the lending
powers of the Reconstruction Finance
Corporation until June 30, 1939.
He argued for a one and a half-
year extension, contending that if the
RFC's life weoe prolonged further,
14 other lending bureaus would be
treated likewise. This, he said, would
mean a long delay for his cherished
plan to abolish some agencies, merge
others, and cut the cost.
But the Senate passed the admin-
istration resolution, with only Byrd
dissenting. Subsequently the House
Banking Committee also approved it.
Jesse H. Jones, chairman of the RFC,
which has lent billions to tide busi-
ness and financial institutions over
the depression, told the committee:
"We propose to make the RFC a
standby agency in case of need,"

Satisfactory adjustment of the
anti-semitism problem in present-day
Germany is virtually impossible, Prof.
Roy W. Sellars of the philosophy de-
partment said yesterday in an in-
terview on the development of anti-
semitism in Germany.
"In Europe," he said, "where tradi-
tions have been operating for cen-
turies and where the people are
sharply divided into classes-the
working class, middle class, and the
gentry-the Jews have always been
a target where crises have appeared.
And, as evidenced in Germany today,
they continue to be a target."
Professor Rellars nointed out that
ships, he pointed out, they were con-
stantly being attacked by those to
whom they loaned money. Inevi-
tably attitudes of uncertainty and
hostility manifested themselves, he
said. "So from the chief frictions,
economic and religious, the Jews
became a target conspicuous because
of sociological and psychological dif-
ferences. And since they have al-
ways been a minority group they
have always been relatively helpless.
"The Jews have through history
constituted a nation within a nation,
never becoming geographically lo-

ly isolated. However, there have al-
