Prof. Henry C. Anderson will ex-
plain to a special open meeting of
the Peace Council at 7:30 p.m. today
in the Union his objections to the
passage ofresolutions at the Apra
22 peace demonstration.
Permission for the demonstration
has been granted by the University,
but objections were raised to the use
of the library steps and the passage
of resolutions at the meeting. Classes
will be dismissed at 11 a.m., the time
of the demonstration, for an hour.
The Peace Council appealed the
decision on resolutions and Profes-
sor Anderson agreed to lay before
the campus his objections.
Dr. Edward W. Blakeman and Ju-
lian Orr, '37, president of the Peace
Council, are the other two members
of the committee of three appointed
by President Rutilven to handle ne-
gotiations with the Peace Council.
They have expressed their approval
of the regional petition which was
submitted to the University early last
The proposed resolutions state:
"I. We, here assembled disapprove
of military and naval expenditures in
excess of the requirements of national
defense and we recommend the ap-
pointment of a joint civilian and mil-
itary committee to determine the
needs of national defense.
"2,. We, here assemDled, approve
the extension of the Reciprocal Trade
Agreements Act, as a means of fur-
thering international amity through
the establishment of sound trade re-I
"3. We, here assembled, approve
the Nye-Kvale bill for the abolition
Of' cOmpulsory military training 'in

"4. We, here assembled, disapprove
of any participation by the United
States in any extra-territorial con-
"5. We, here assembled, consider
the Hill-Sheppard bill as an inade-
quate means of taking the profits out
of war and deplore it as a menace
to civil liberties.
"6. We, here assembled, desire that
a telegram be sent to President
Roosevelt expressing our support of
administration efforts circulated to
further the cause of peace through
these indicated means." .F
In the meantime Gov. Frank
Murphy replied to a Peace Council
invitation to address the demonstra-
tion, declaring that he was already
scheduled for another engagement.
Other possible speakers, including
Heywood Broun, noted newspaper
columnist, were being contacted last
night by telephone.
President Ruthven has tentatively
consented to preside at the peace
demonstration which will be held be-
tween the architecture college and
the University High School.
Democrats Say
Local Election

Was 'Not Fair
Pittsfield township Democrats were
claiming yesterday that their local
election Monday had been unfair be-
cause the Republican slate had been
placed in the first column of the
local ballot instead of the Democratic
slate. The claim was based upon the
State law that says the party that
won the previous election should have
the first column in the State ballot.
The democrats said that the Re-
publican victory in that township
was partially because of this fact
since the leaders of the former party
had instructed their constituents to
put a mark at the top of the first
column if they wanted to vote for
the local Democratic ticket.
If the Democrats were successful
in getting the Pittsfield township bal-
lots for the local offices thrown out.
it would make no difference for all
township officers were reelected, and
it is the state election law that, in
case a ballot is thrown out, the per-
sons serving at the time of the elec-
tion shall hold their office until thel

sults were turned in yesterday morn-
ing. The final vote was 3,784 for
Professor Sadler and 2,974 for Mr.

Mr. Winchester entered the race
with the backing of the young Re-
publican's Club after Alec Jaffee,
chairman of the club, had charged
that an agreement had been made
between party leaders in the ward
which would result in the 'selling out"
of the normally Republican district.
George J. Smith said Saturday
that he had been intimidated by T.
Reardon Peirsol, chairman of the
Sixth Ward Republican Committee,
into withdrawing his nominating pe-
tition as Republican candidate for
the office.

Union Intimidation

At Peak Strike Involved j
65,000 Chrysler Menj
And 20,000_Othets
A summary of the sit-down strike
settled last night follows:
The union called the strike which
closed Chrysler's eight Detroit plants,
-leading to other shutdowns and
curtailments-while it and company
officials were discussing demands
submitted by the UAWA.
The corporation rejected the
union's demand for recognition as
the sole bargaining agency for the
Chrysler employes, and a code sig-
nal, "My hand is up," caused the
workers to sit down.
The strike involved at its peak ap-
proximately 65,000 Chrysler workers
and 20,000 employes of concerns de-
pendent upon Chrysler Corporation.
The men remained in the plants
after the corporation obtained an in-
junction against them. Governor
Murphy called together Qhrysler and
Lewis in his office here on March 23,
and the next day the conferees
reached a preliminary truce which
provided for evacuation of the
strikers. The unionists vacated the
factories March 25.

Climbs Mt. Baldy
Comes Upon Plane
Since Saturday

SPRINGERVILLE, Ariz., April 6.
-(A)--A ground party led by Sheriff
John Nun plodded up the snow-
clogged slopes of Mount Baldy late
today toward the tangled wreckage of
a huge skyliner sighted several hours
earlier from a searching plane.
Major A. D. Smith, Albuquerque,
from whose plane the wreckage first
was seen sprawled lifeless against
the mountainside,- expressed belief it
was the 21-passenger Douglas air-
liner which vanished Saturday with
six men and two women aboard.
The search party, about 35 in num-
ber, began its hazardous ascent at
Greer, 20 miles south of here. The
wreckage was an estimated 10 miles
from there and about 7,000 feet up
the 10,500 foot peak.
As the hours passed with no word
from the ground searchers it was
feared they might not return from
their mission until tomorrow. Sheriff
Nun said before he set out that the
task might take several days but
Jack Buzard, state highway patrol-
man, said it might be done in "four
or five hours" despite deep snows.
"Lost Douglas plane found by me
at an altitude of 8,500 feet," Smith
radioed. "Deep snow and scattered
timber in this area, with no trail or

Cancer Growths Are Called Similar
To Female Sex Cells By Bachmann

Centennial Cake Sans Candles,
Because Of Dispute Over Age

That the rapid cell growth charac.
terizing both female sexual activity
and cancer may spring from the same
cause has been suggested as a possible
explanation for the high cancer rate
among women, according to Prof
Werner E. Bachmann of the chemis.
try department. Professor Bachmann
demonstrated that one compound
may cause both growths.
"We have succeeded in producin
malignant tumors by inoculating with
a coal tar product that Dr. Cook of
the Royal Cancer Hospital in Lon-
don has shown to closely resemble
the female sex hormone oestrin,'
Professor Bachmann said.
Ovariectimised rats iniected with

cation. Similarly small amounts will
produce malignant tumors, he said.
Since so small a quantity is re-
quired to produce cancer, it has been
suggested that modification of the
natural sex hormone may be re-
sponsible for the large amounts of
cancer occuring in women after the
change in life.

There will be no birthday cake
at the University's June celebrotion
because of the heated controversy
over the number of candles to place

Three dates have been advanced
as the only birthday of the Univer-
sity of Michigan, but the opposition
forces strongly object to any pref-
erence, accorded any one. The va-
rious dates uncompromisingly set
forth are 1817, 1837 and 1841.
The June celebration, therefore, to
appease all factions, will officially be
called "The 1937 Celebration of the

In 1817 a plan for the educational
system of Michigan was approved by
the government and the judges of the
Territory. It was in that year that
the "Catholepistemiad" or "Univer-

lished in Detroit. It was also known
as the "University of Michigania."
This educational institution pos-
