Lumber jacks Strike
For Baths And Things
IRONWOOD, May 21.-(P)-Upperl
Michigan lumberjacks in the Maren-
isco area are striking for shower
baths, single beds and free meals for
men looking for work-among other
things.
Old-timers in these parts shook
their heads sadly today-things nev-
er were like this when Paul was
around.
Paul, was that legendary Bunyan
fellow, than whom there was no
mightier he-man pine tree toppler in
all lumbering history. He'd prob-
ably blush with embarrassment, they
admitted, over his sissy successors.
For colossal Paul, who had his lum-

Plan To Forestall
Further Requests
WASHINGTON, May 21.-()-
President Roosevelt's request for $1,-
500,000,000 work-relief fund for the
next fiscal year won overwhelming
support in the House today but went
over until Monday for final action.
Shouldering aside attempts to slash
as much as one-third from the total
in the name of economy and efforts to
increase it to $3,000,000,000, the House
stamped its approval on the Presi-
dent's estimate by a vote of 210 to
128.
Before adjourning for the week-
end, the House also adopted an ap-
propriations committee amendment
aimed at forestalling requests for ad-
ditional relief appropriations for the
year, which begins July 1.
It also approved provisions stipu-
lating that $415,000,000 of the total b'
earmarked for highways and streets;
$630,000,000 for public works and rec-
reational projects; $380,000,000 for
so-called "white collar" projects and
$75,000,000 for the National Youth
Administration.
Appeals for economy and elimina-
tion of "racketeering" from relief
mingled with warnings from advo-
cates of a larger fund that "millions
will be scouring this country for
something to eat within six months."
Administration leaders succeedd,
however, in holding their forces in
line. They were spurred by a last-
minute appeal from Harry L. Hop-
kins, Works Progress Administrator,
who addressed a gathering of promi-
nent representatives earlier in the
day.

Miss Winwood
Named To Play
'Portia'_Today
Peggy Wood Is Replaced
In Las Minute Change;
Relative Is Ill
Peggy Wood has been replaced by
Estelle Winwood in the role of "Por-
tia" in "The Merchant of Venice,"
the second presentation of the Dra-
matic Season which will open at 3:15
p.m. today in the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre it was revealed yesterday.
Miss Winwood is the original "Por-
tia" in Robert Henderson's Hollywood
production of "The Merchant." Miss
Wood, famous stage actress, was en-
gaged several weeks ago when it was
discovered that Miss Winwood had
a Hollywood contract to play the part
of Napoleon's mother in M.G.M.'s
"Countess Waleska," with Greta Gar-
bo and Charles Boyer. Mr. Hender-
son, director of the Season, said Miss
Winwood would return to Hollywood
immediately after the run of "The
Merchant."
Mr. Henderson further explained
that Miss Wood was released because
of an illness of a member of her
family in Chicago. He stated that it
was fortunate that Miss Winwood
was able to leave Hollywood long
enough to appear in "The Merchant."
Miss Wood, however, immediately
before leaving Ann Arbor early yes-
terday afternoon, and as Miss Win-
wood arrived to go into rehearsal,
told The Daily, "My personal-difficul-
ties corresponded astonishingly well
with Mr. Henderson's plans." She
said she was sorry to leave Ann Arbor
but further explained that "Every-
thing turned out to the satisfaction
of all concerned." She pointed out
that she was receiving her full pay,
although not appearing at all in the
production.
Mr. Henderson said he had con-

UAW Pledoes
Not To Renew
Power Strike
Negotiations To Continue,
Progress Is Reported;
Take UpWages First
$160 Monthly Wage
Is Strikers Demand
SAGINAW, May 21.-(P)-Repre-
sentatives of the Consumers Power
Co. and the United Automobile Work-
ers of America resumed their negotia-
tions here today, with a warning that
they might be protracted and a prom-
ise that there would be no recurrence
of Wednesday's power strike.
A wage scale was the first of the
disputants' differences to be taken
up.
The union, demanding a minimum
wage of $160 a month, claims the av-
erage now is $90 a month. The com-
pany says the average is $1,675, or
nearly $140 a month.
Dan E. Karns, vice-president and
general manager of the company, said
the negotiators "have made satis-
factory progress" when the confer-
ence recessed late today until Tues-
day morning. He said the adjourn-
ment was requested by Wyndham
Mortimer, first vice-president of the
U.A.W.A.
The conferences had been in pro-
gress for two weeks when union em-
ployes in the Bay City, Flint and
Saginaw divisions struck Wednesday'
leaving thousands of residents in 13
counties without power or light serv-
ice for nine hours. Gov. Frank
Murphy brought the conferees to-
gether yesterday at his office, and ex-
acted a promise that the negotiations
would be continued until an agree-
ment is reached.

Chicago Is Nearing Title
As Result Of Semi-Final
Round Victory
Woolsey Defeated
In Singles Match
Dean Only Wolverine Left
In Singles; Doubles Are
To Be Played
By ART BALDAUF
Chicago's varsity tennis team
moved a step closer to the 1937 Con-
ference title as a result of the semi-
final round played in the singles di-
vision yesterday at the Palmer Field
courts. The Maroons took three of
the matches to give them a total of 11
points to date, three more than. the
second place Northwestern squad.
Michigan's chances received a de-
cided set back when Bill Woolsey lost
a heartbreaking three-set battle to
Batzle of Wisconsin, 1-6, 6-3, 2-6, to
leave Jarvis Dean the only Wolverine
to pull through the 'singles. Jarvis
trimmed Tim Twerdahl of Illinois,
6-1, 6-1, to reach the finals of the
third flight. He meets Russel Ball of
Northwestern today.
The Wolverines are basing their
remaining hopes in the doubles, which
were halted by rain yesterday. Jesse
Flick and Jp r'.la Dean meet George
Ball and Dick Rugg, the Wildcats
semi-finalists in the second flight,
and Neil Levenson and Bill Woolsey
play the Ohio State James-Nist team
in the third flight,
Norm Bickel established himself
as the probable Conferencehindi-
vidual champion when he went three
sets with George Ball before coming
through on top, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5. Both
men played cautiously, fearing to
give the other many chances and
consequently netting a good number
of shots. While Ball was stronger
in the early part of the match, Bickel
improved and outsteadied his op-
ponent to win.
In the other first flight match, Bob
Neihousen of Ohio defeated George

'Schoolboy' Rowe
Comes To College
To See Field Meet
Lynwood "Schoolboy" Rowe, ailing
mound ace of the Detroit Tigers,
proved to be a strong counter-attrac-
tion to the Big Ten track prelimin-
aries yesterday as he watched pro-
ceedings from a vantage point in the
Ferry Field press box.
Accompanied by Tod Rockwell, De-
troit sports writer, the Schoolboy was
besieged all afternoon by autograph
fiends, reporters and camera-men,
but exhibited a lot of form by satisfy-
ing all demands with a minimum of
effort.
Suspended last week by Manager
Mickey Cochrane, who was displeased
with the big pitcher's attitude, Rowe
good naturedly clicked stop watches,
smiled, frowned and kidded the pho-
tographers and spectators who sur-
rounded him.
Although he showed no sign of re-
gretting his present position, Rowe
refused to comment officially on his
baseball status or future plans.

Day Of Conference
The Institute of Adult Education
closed its annual meeting yesterday
in the League with conferences and
lectures on Pan-Americanism, the
sit-down strike and modern American
painting.
Doubt as to the permanency of the
sit-down as an effective labor tech-
nique was expressed by Prof. William
C. Haber of the economics depart-
ment.
Sit-Down Two-Edged
"The sit-down is a two-edgedswea-
pon," he said, "which cuts just as
sharply against labor as it does
against employers. Unions are find-
ing it increasingly difficult to prevent
unauthorized sit-downs and it is
apparent that the very effectiveness
of the technique will prove to be its
outstanding weakness. It is already

Land Expedition
At North Pole
MOSCOW, May 2.-(MP-Daring
Soviet aviators today carried the
first aerial landing party to the North
Pole. An expedition of eleven men
having flown over the pole, was land-
ed safely on an ice floe about 20
kilometers (13 miles) from the top

The expedition was headed by Dr.
Otto J. Schmidt, the picturesquely be-
whiskered director of the Soviet's
"Northern sea route," leader and
planner of many ambitious Arctic
projects.
The flight was made from Rudolph

'Ensian, Out Today, Describes
Informality Of Life On Campus

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the last in
a series of four articles covering vari-
ous aspects of job-seeking. Previous
articles have dealt with what person-
nel agents want in applicants, how to
find the job you're fitted for and em-
ployment agencies on campus.
By ALBERT MAYIO
The interview can make you or
break you as far as getting the job
goes, according to Prof. Charles L.
Jamison of the business administra-
tion school.
"The interview is the vital thing,"
Professor Jamison said. "More than
one man whose record in college is

You must subordinate the serious-
ness of getting a job to a somewhat
nonchalant attitude, but not to the
extreme of being flippant, he said.
Employment men like a jolly,
cheerful attitude, Professor Jamison
believes, for after all they probably
take college men with the idea that
some day they will become executives.
To be a good executive one must be
able to influence his subordinates and
a sullen appearance is not quite
the thing to influence men, Professor
Jamison continued.

A group of 10 persons has already
been organzed to drive from the
starting point of Huron and State
Streets to the capital city to petition
for the passage of a state Wagner
Act, an anti-injunction act, and anti-
race discrimination act.
The Washtenaw County Confer-I
ence will also urge the passage of a
bill to make all voters eligible to vote
for school board members. It was ex-
plained that such a bill would enable
all voters regardless of property qual-
ifications to elect school board mem-
bers.

The 2,200 copies of the 1937 'En-
sian, ready for distribution today,
represent an effort on the part of the
editors to present "living Michigan"
in its characteristic informality.
The books, now priced at $5.50, will
be distributed at 9-12 a.m. and 1-5
p.m. today at the Student Publica-
tions Building. Purchasers and sub-
scribers will take the 'Ensians to
