To:Better Flint
Workmen's Lot
Doctor For GM Sit-Down
Strikers Speaks Before
Liberal Students' Union
The Committee for Industrial Or-
ganization in Flint has done a good
job in bettering working conditions
in the General Motors plants in the
opinion of Dr. C. C. Probert, physi-
cian for the sit-downers during the
Flint strike, who spoke Sunday to the
Liberal Students' Union of the Uni-
tarian church.
He described conditions in the auto
factories before the strike as bad. He
cited the case of one p4tient who had
been losing weight excessively. In-
vestigation revealed that the man
had been carrying steel from one part
of the plant to another, then running
back to repeat his job, covering 32
miles in the course of a day.
Dr. Probert criticized the Flint
Journal and the Flint Alliance, com-
prising, he said, business men, law-
yers, ministers, and doctors, for car-
rying on a prejudiced campaign
against the strikers and by delaying
settlement, aggravating the strike sit-
uation.
"We were getting nothing but the
General Motors side in the Flint
Journal," Dr. Probert said.
He described the t.ear-gassing of
the 13 Flint strikers on Jan. 11 as
unprovoked.'
"A non-union man's wife told me,"
Dr. Probert said, "she saw the police
draw up to the plant, deliberately
poke their tear gas guns through the
windows and pump shells into the
plant."
Small business men, coal dealers
and teachers were told what to say
and what not to say during the strike,
Dr. Probert asserted.
The chief grievances of the work-
ers, he said, were speed-up conditions
and summer lay-offs, because of
which the workers had to go on re-
life or accept loans of $7.50 per fam-
ily from General Motors which took
months to pay off when the men went
back to work.

many, France, Africa, South America
and Panama, Wunderlich still favors
Hawaii and paints a vivid word-pic-
ture of it.
There are very few real Hawaiians
left on the Island, Wunderlich ex-
plained. The majority of the pop-
ulation, he said, is made up of Chin-
ese, Japanese, Portuguese and Amer-
icans. However, the old native cus-
toms and stories are still in evidence,
he said.
In Russia at the outbreak of the
World War, Wunderlich was in the
naval intelligence bureau, helping to
plan entrances for American vessels
at Vladivostok harbor.
From Valadivostok Wunderlich'
was sent to France where he servedl
in the naval patrol in Bordeaux and
Brest during the remainder of the
war.

Ann Arbor Dairy
Robbed Of $629
The office of the Ann Arbor Dairy
Co., 121 Catherine St., was robbed
Saturday night of $629.25.
According to officials of the com-
pany, the robbery was evidently com-
mitted by someone familiar with the
workings of the Dairy, for there was
a watchman on duty all Saturday
night except for an hour and a half
during which the crime must have
been perpetrated.
Police admitted that the job was
so workmanlike there was not a clue
to go on. The safe had not been
forced .but had been "picked" or un-
locked by someone who had discov-
ered the- combination. Two doors
leading into the room in which the
safe stood had also been unlocked.
