The action followed a conference
between Julian Orr, '37, president
of the Peace Council, and Prof. H..C.

by Professor Anderson, Orr an-

Orr last night issued the following
"The publicity given the Peace
Demonstration as a strike was mis-
taken. The demonstration is not a
strike but a united protest against
war. It is unfortunate that any mis-
understanding should have arisen on
this point.']
The meeting, ,which is to be held

Large Crowd
Hears Allen's
Bird Lecture
A crowd, estimated at more than
3,000 people, reacted enthusiastically
to a novel lecture and sound movie
given last night in Hill Auditorium
by Prof. Arthur A. Allen of Cornell
Professor Allen carried his audi-
ence with him graphically on a 15,-
000-mile trip through the United
States by means of four reels of
sound film with colored lantern slides
between reels, presenting the lives
and habitats of many of America's
rarer birds, some of which are rap-
idly becoming extinct.
Starting their search in Florida
and continuing through the South
and West to Montana, the expedition
encountered many rare birds such as
the Ivory-Billed Woodpecker and the
Trumpeter Swan both of which will

soon be extinct.
According to Professor Allen, mov-
ing pictures of birds are not unknown
but the synchronizing of the pictures
with the sound of the bird is a new
development made possible by the
new apparatus and is of great value
to ornithologists. Not only will stu-
dents now be able to study the birds
and their calls without going into
the field, he said, but it will also be
possible to preserve for future gen-
erations the sounds of species which
will soon be extinct.

331 Per Cent New Profits

New Naval Program
While college campuses through-
out the country were preparing for
tomorrow's nation-wide peace dem-
onstration, the British government
proposed yesterday to collect up to
one-third of a businessman's new
profits and levy a 25 per cent tax on
individual incomes to meet part of its
projected rearmament and defense
budget, the Associated Press report-
The taxes are necessary to sup-
port the proposed $7,500,000,000 de-
fense expenditures, Chancellor of the
Exchequer Neville Chamberlain told
the House of Commons. He present-
ed 1937-38 budget estimates.
Labor opposition developed at
once, the Associated Press dispatch
stated, Major Clement R. Attlee
charging the budget was a "war bud-
get" which the Labor party would
fight because "we are marching
straight into another war" and be-
cause the budget "is an expression
of the foreign policy which is ruin-
ing the world."
The government's large majority,
however, assured acceptance of the
tax and budget proposals.
Chamberlain estimated that the
new profits tax, the income tax and
more stringent regulation of income
tax assessments would provide need-

Union yesterday.-
"I don't believe you realize the po-

Helen Jeperson 38, recently elect-

Leaders of industry and labor agreed

"Both sides," she added, "agreed'

"Secondly, they agreed that labor's

WASHINGTON, April 20.-(R)-
President Roosevelt told Congress to-
day that latest figures indicate the
government will go $418,000,000 into
the red in the 1938 fiscal year-the
eighth successive year of federal defi-
However, he called for economy,
said he would use "every means at
my command" to wipe out the threat-
ened deficit and indicated that new
taxes may be sought in the next
session of Congress to close the gap
between income and outgo.
The President laid the figures be-
fore legislators in a message which
called for $1,500,000,000 for work re-
lief in the 1938 fiscal year-which
begins next July 1.
He overhauled previous financial

defendants, is expected to arrive

The Ann Arbor Trades and Laborl
Council has sent the City Council
'a protest of police action in arrest-'
ing the five University students, one
of whom is a reporter for The Daily,
alumnus and bystander, during the
strike at the Ann Arbor Recreation
Center, 605 E. Huron St., it was re-
vealed yesterday.
"The Student Workers' Federa-
tion acted in good faith; the em-
ployer did not-picketing was the
only recourse," the protest read.
"cketing Peaceful
"The picketing was peaceful and
orderly. Two students were 'taken
in,' not arrested, for speaking with-
out apermit,-you know the rest of
the story-all were booked for 'dis-
orderly conduct."
The protest also criticized Justice
Jay H. Payne, who will preside at
the trial, chafging that he had ex-
pressed prejudiced opinion at the
preliminary hearing.
"In view of the fact that an un-
'usual number of police were assem-
bled at the Recreation hall before the
picketing began and in view of the
fact that the police themselves did
not know or professed not to know
what the picketing was about, it is
clear that the police were there for
one purpose only-to enforce the
law as they understood it with ex-
treme partiality in favor of the man-
agement of the hall," the communi-
cation read.
Those arrested are Edward Magdol,
'39, a reporter for The Daily; Tom

The Federal Communications Com-
mission will hear Friday the petition
of the Ann Arbor Broadcasting Com-
pany to establish a radio station in
Ann Arbor, Prof. Waldo M. Abbot,
director of the University Broad-

the company announced yesterday.
He will leave today to attend the
conference in Washington with Prof.
Fielding H. Yost of the physical edu-
cation department.
On the ruling of the commission
depends the granting of a license for
operation. The petition calls for a
station of one kilowatt output on a
wave length of 1550 kilocycles. If
permission is given, the station will
occupy the same spot as WQXR, an
experimental high fidelity transmit-
ter located in New York.
The station would be owned not
by the University but by a private
corporation, organized with a cap-
ital stock of $50,000, Professor Abbot
said. Its president is Professor Yost,
and its offices are temporarily locat-
ed in the First National Building.

Deficit, To Rise
For the remainder of this fiscal
year, Mr. Roosevelt said in his re-
lief message, the deficit will rise
$309,000,000 over the original esti-
mate. This will bring the deficit to.
$2,557,000,000. If the treasury bor-
rows to the full amount of the in-
crease in the deficit, the public debt
will climb to a new $35,335,000,000
peak on June 30.

brought quick expressions of support
from both . Senator Robinson, the

Pitt Deans Publish Volume Titled
'What Every Man Should Know'

Mysteries Of University To Be
Divulged In Centennial Exhibits

The social conduct of the men,
students of the University of Pitts-
burgh is being dictated these days
by a guide on manners written by
Dr. Vincent W. Lanfear, dean of
men, and Robert C. Corley, his as-
sistant, entitled "What Every Man
Should Know."
The little volume sets forth the
precepts of correct conduct, explains
what the world expects of collegel
men, and points out methods of
avoiding embarassing situations. I
Among the practices expected of a
gentleman, according to the Pitts-
burgh deans, are the following:

4. Always "remember" having met
a person who remembers you even if
you don't really recall.
5. It is more embarassing to find
yourself formally attired when your
host is dressed informally than to be
in street clothes when your host is
wearing a stiff shirt and black tie.
6. If your salad shows signs of skid-
ding, by all means resort to your
7. When you enter an office place
your hat in an inconspicuous place
and remember where.
8. When making introductions be
certain not to command. Refrain
from saying Mr. Blank meet Mr.

The customary sedateness and in-
tricate mysteries of the University
will be subjected to unprecedented
treatment during the June Centen-
nial celebration of the establishment
of the University in Ann Arbor.
For, each department of the
University, in a gigantic "open
house," will put itself on exhibit,
with a central display on the his-
tory of the University to be placed
in Alumni Memorial Hall, Dr. Carl
Guthe, director of Museums and
chairman of the Centennial Exhibits
Committee, explained yesterday.
The individual departmental ex-
hibits, however, Dr. Guthe pointed
out, will be coordinated as far as pos-

the individual visitor is most interest-
ed. The aim of the displays, it was,
shown, is not only to acquaint the
visitors with the growth and facili-
ties of the University but also to
show how the University serves the
people of the state.
Each exhibit, Dr. Guthe explained,
will be prepared by the individual
departments except in those cases
where it will be feasible to combine
histories and efforts.
In addition, guide service to the
exhibits will be provided from the
Union and at the individual ex-
hibits,' Dr. Guthe said. He added
that probably a Centennial pamph-
let will be published explaining what
and where each exhibit is.
