GovernorMurphy's WiagnerAct'
Will Go To Legislature Today

ichigan's Strike Policy
Was 'Neutral,' He Says
At Case Club Dinner
A "model labor relations act" for
Michigan will be introduced in the
State Legislature today, Gov. Frank
Murphy said last night in his address
at the annual Case Club dinner in
the Law Club.
Announcement of the initiation of
the act, which the Governor said he
"would be proud to introduce," came
in the middle of his talk last night
and was the first definite statement
as to when the "Wagner Act" for
Michigan would be presented to the
A plea for fundamental principles
of government that will withstand
the onslaughts of temporary currents
of change and yet permit progress
and evolution was made by the gov-
ernor in his talk.
Stating that these strong govern-
mental principles are especially
necessary at the present time, Gov-
ernor Murphy said, "It is a colossal
weakness among those in public life
that they yield and bend before the
immediate problems, losing sight of
the long-time end."
"There is nothing inconsistent in
progressive government with prac-
tical government," the Governor
said. "A government canabe socially
minded and progressive and at the
same time competent," he added."
The constitution was not designed to
meet the problems of any particular
period but was intended to carry the
nation through the ages."

Varsity Stops
Toledo's Rally
And Wins, 7 - 6
Gee, Smith, Fishman All
Pitch; Twelve Fanned
As Ten Walk
Herman Fishman throttled a belat-
ed Toledo rally in the ninth inning
yesterday to give Michigan a 7-6
victory in a weird contest that
marked the opening of the home sea-
l son for Coach Fisher's Varsity base-
ball nine.
Fishman was the last of a trio of
Wolverine pitchers that fanned 12
opposing batters, walked 10 and blew
a 7-0 lead. Burt Smith crowned the
freakish mound performance by hit-
ting Bill Mattison, Toledo catcher,
on the head with a fast ball in the
seventh inning.
Michigan made four runs in the
second inning without hitting a ball
out of the infield. Steve Uricek and
Mlierle Kremer walked and Danny
Smick was safe on an error by
"Howdy" Camp, Toledo pitcher, to
fill the bases. Bob Campbell then
hit a grounder to Marty Slovak at
third who slipped on the wet grass
and Uricek crossed the plate with
the first run of the game. Kremer
and Smick scored on Heyliger's and
Gee's infield outs and Don Brewer
was safe at first when Camp's throw
hit him in the back as he was racing
down the first base line, Campbell
scoring on the play. Walt Peckin-
paugh ended the inning by ground-
ing out third to first.

Testimony will be resumed at 10
a.m. today in Justice Jay H. Payne's
Sgt. Norman E. Cook, the first
wvitness, testified that he had arrest-
ed Neafus only after he had told him
he'd "have to take him in if he failed
to heed the warning" to stop address-
ing the crowd which had gathered
around the picket line."
Under questioning of Arthur C.
Lehman, one of Neafus' attorneys
he said that Neafus had been ar-
rested because he did not have a
speaking permit from the mayor. I
he had had a permit, Cook said, po-
lice would have rerouted traffic to
avoid the "congested" area.
Other officers to testify were Ju-
lius Ehnis, Albert Heusel, Edward
Iler and Casper Michelson.
All said that when Neafus began
to speak he attracted a crowd that
made it impossible for a pedestrian
to pass the building Each officer
testified that he had had to aid per-
sons in entering the Ann Arbor Rec-
reation Center, 605 E. Huron St., the
scene of the strike.'
Lehman and Michael Evanoff, wh
is also representing Neafus, said tha
Neafus would be the defense's firs
"About three more policemen" wil
be put on the witness stand before
Neafus, however, according to Ser
geant Cook.

Jackson youth
fIs Jailed Here
After Assault
Clarence A. Patrick, 25 years old,
Jackson, yesterday _was in County
Jail after he admitted he had in-
tended to assault Elinor West, 17
year old high school girl, Tuesday
Miss West, daughter of Police Sgt.
e Clifford West, balked the attempted
assault by slipping the chain-lock be-
fore opening the door of the West
t home, 906 Fifth St., when her suspi-
cions were aroused by the growling
of her pet dog.
e Miss West was preparing for bed
shortly before midnight when the
doorbell rang. She thought it might
have been her father, and went down-
stairs to let him in. She slipped the
chain after hearing the dog's growl-
ing. As she opened the door, the
assailant pushed hid leg through the
opening in the door and grabbed her
by the arm. She screamed and
aroused her mother, who was asleep.
, The screams startled the assailant so
much he released his grip.
n Her mother came downstairs and
- called the police. Two radio equipped
- police scout cars, the Washtenaw
e sheriff's patrol car and five State
Police cars quickly joined in a road

Congress Approves Award t
Of Over 83 Millions r
To Federal Agencies 1
T' A Grants Totalr
Set At $44,166,270
WASHINGTON, April 28.-()--e
The House climaxed a day of econ-
omy debate today by approving an1
outright increase of $4,000,000 in the
session's second deficiency appropria-f
Without a record vote, the cham-I
ber then passed the measure carrying
$83,146,943 for the Tennessee Valley1
Authority and a number of otherc
Federal agencies.t
Despite Republican appeals for
"real economy," the House added $4,-
000,000 to the TVA's appropriationt
for the fiscal year beginning July 1.
This action came after authorization '
for the TVA to make electrical equip-
ment contracts for a similar amount,
had been stricken out on a point of
order raised by Minority Leader Snell;
(Rep., NY.).
Gives TVA $44,166270
The change would give the TVA a
total of $44,166,270, approximately
$4,524,000 less than it had this year.
As finally approved, the measure
carried about $14,060,000 less than
the total recommended by the budget
Although the only reduction effect-
ed on the House floor was the elimin-
ation of $60,000 for salaries of as-
sistant attorneys in the Justice De-
partment, the House beat down sev-
eral attempts to increase the bill.
Some of the hottest debate on the
measure centered on the TVA ap-
Discounts Impounding
Earlier in the day, Representativej
Taber of New York, a Republican
leader, told the House that a Demo-;
cratic proposal to impound 15 per
cent of all of next year's governmen-
tal appropriations subject to Presi-
dent Roosevelt's orders "will not re-
sult in any economy whatsoever."
Legislation to authorize the im-
pounding was introduced late yes-
terday by Representative Cannon
(Dem , Mo.) and Speaker Bankhead
said it had President Roosevelt's ap-
proval. It would permit the Presi-
dent to restore all or part of the im-
pounded funds as he saw fit.
Some Democratic leaders contend-
ed that the President, who recently
announced an economy campaign,
should be given broad discretion in
making cuts.
Seek To Make ROTC
Compulsory Here
LANSING, April 28.-(/P)-A mea-
sure introduced in the legislature to-
day by Rep. F. Dean Morley, Demo-
crat, New Troy, would make military
training ior men compulsory at the
University of Michigan.
Morley's bill would make one year's
training in military tactics a manda-
tory condition to enrollment at the
University. Military training now is
optional with the University students,
but compulsory at Michigan State
College for two years.
Rep. Frank N. Steele, Democrat,
Muskegon, introduced a bill to per-
mit parochial schools to share in
state school aid funds

A bill submitted by Rep. Joseph E.
Warner, Republican, Ypslianti, would
provide $400,000 to remodel the
Neuro-Psychiatric Institute at the
University of Michigan and install
additional equipment.
