New Campus
Model of 'Life'
Gets Approval
Joan Hanson To Be Editor
Of Bi-Weekly Panorama
During Initial Year
Lodge Is Appointed
Business Manager
Plans for a new campus bi-weekly
magazine to be called "Panorama"
and to be modeled after the picture
perodical, "Life," were approved by
the Board in Control of Student Pub-
lications Friday night. The new publi-
cation will make its first appearance
next year and will be edited by Joan
V. Hanson, '40.
Prof. Edson R. Sunderland of the
Law School, secretary of the Board,
announced that only two members
Any student interested in trying
out for either the editorial or
business staffs of the new publi-
cation, Panarama, is asked to
meet at 3:30 p.m., Tuesday in
Room 200, Student Publications
of the staff have been appointed as
yet: Miss Hanson, who is a member
of Collegiate Sorosis; and Robert
Lodge, '39, local advertising man-
ager of The Michigan Daily, who will
be business manager.
A Camera Club which is to supply
the new magazine with photographs
will be formed early next year, ac-
cording to Lodge. The club will also
have a special section of the periodi-
cal devoted to it.
To Feature Pictures
"The purpose of the new maga-
zine," Miss Hanson said, "is to have
in pictures a record of campus activi-
ties in order that they may be more
easily remembered. We plan to have
accounts of the May Festival, J.G.P.
and Lantern Night among other
things next year. There will be no
flagrant r ganda-we will let the
18 w +heir own conclusions.
We plan to get unusual shots,' such
as the inside of the Carillon tower
elevator shaft."
Lodge pointed out that depart-
ments will be given over to sports,
meetings, activities, concerts, edi-
torials and some of the weekly
dances. He added that each issue
will average about 40 pages with a
circulation of 2,000 The price has
not yet been determined.
Osoood Entry
Threatened By
Sprained Ankle
Captain Bob Osgood, Michigan's
crack high hurdler, was in University
Hospital last night as the result of a
sprained ankle sustained when he
tripped in descending a hill on the
Michigamua picnic yesterday after-
Whether Osgood's injury will prove
of sufficient seriousness to bar him
from competition in the National Col-
legiate track and field championships
at Berkeley, Calif., June. 18-19 and
the Big Ten-Pacific Coast meet the
following week, could not be deter-
mined doctors in charge of his case
stated last night.
Osgood set himself up as a fa-

vorite to annex the National high
hurdle crown last week as he scis-
sored over the barriers in 14 seconds
flat to set up a new world record for
the race and claim his second Big
Ten title in that event.
In the Olympic trials last year Os-
good did not compete in the high
;urdles but limited his efforts to the
400 meter hurdles winning the col-
legiate title and missing the Olympic
team by a stroke of bad luck when
he fell on his last hurdle in the final
trials at Randall's Island, New York.

State Legislature, Prof. Herbert F.
Taggart of the business administra-

Penalizing efficiency in production,
he said, the bill if made law would
lead to an over supply of goods in
certain industries. Old inefficient en-

d yustry itsei toc determine its own
price below which it would be unlaw-
ful to sell.
"Public interest which is always
best served by the production of the
largest number of commodities at the
lowest prices won't be considered, and
prices will not be set by government
authority but by the members of the
trade itself," Professor Taggart said.
Another serious weakness in the bill

terprises that had been forced out is the definition of costs, he con-
of business through strict competi- tinued. Like a chemical formula that

League Fails
To Denounce
Aid To Rebels
Loyalist Delegate Presses
For Resolution Indicting
Fascist Intervention
Bombing Of Open
Cities Condemned
GENEVA, May 29. - (P) - The
League of Nations Council today side-
stepped the Spanish government's
plea for denunciation of alleged for-
eign intervention in the Spanish civil1
war. It appealed, however, to all
League members to support removal1
of volunteers from the conflict.
A resolution adopted after long<
discussion and a behind-scenes dis-
pute expressed hope for "rapid suc-
cess" of the 27-nation non-interven-
tion committee's efforts. Bombard-i
ment of unfortified cities was con-
Condemn War Methods
The resolution said, in part:
"The council, profoundly affectedk
by horrors resulting from application(
of certain methods of warfare, con-(
demns recourse in the Spanish strug-(
gle to methods contrary to interna-
tional law and bombardment of open
cities; hence emphasizes its apprecia-
tion of efforts made by non-official
institutions and certain governments
with a view to place the civilian pop-
ulation, especially women and chil-
dren, in shelter from these terriblet
Formal recognition was not given
the Madrid-Valencia regime's con-
tention that territorial aggressiont
had been committed in Spain. The
Spanish government charged Italy
with suchaggression and declared
Germany guilty of the same offenset
in smaller degree.
Government Delegate Protests t
The Spanish government's delegate,
Julio Alvarez del Vayo, lost a last-
minute struggle for a resolution that
would have implied, at least, Fascist
intervention in the civil war. The
approved document, however, said:
-"The council n #t
development of the situation in Spain
does not appear to be of the character
#to warrant belief that measures tak-
en by governments following the
council's recommendations have had
so far the desired effect."
The League council last December
recommended cooperative a c t i o n
through the non-intervention com-
mittee for isolation of the civil war.
Practically all European nations, in-1
cluding Italy and Germnay, aret
bound by an accord reached later fors
preventing movement of foreign help

Indiana state police said a close

Income Tax
Raise Asked
By LaFollette
Proposed Reforms Subject
Low Incomes To Levy,
Reduce Exemptions
Bill To Be Added
To House Proposal
WASHINGTON, May 29.-(')--
Senator LaFollette (Prog., Wis.) in-
formed his colleagues today that he
would try to write a general income
tax increase into the administration's
suggested anti-tax evasion legisla-
A close friend of the President and
ardent supporter of his general legis-
lative program, the Wisconsin Pro-
gressive has his own idea on taxes,
and never lets an opportunity pass to
impress them upon the Senate.
Roughly, LaFollette's tax program,
one that he has been urging for
years, contemplates a general in-
crease from the lowest to the highest
brackets and the inclusion in the in-
come tax paying group of thousands
of low-salaried citizens who now are
He would bring this about by re-
ducing personal exemption, by in-
creasing the normal tax rate and by
rasing the surtaxes paid by those
whose incomes run into the taller
Exemptions at present are $1,000
for an unmarried person, $2,500 for a
husband and wife, and $400 for. each
dependent, when there are children
in the family below 18. The normal
tax rate is four per cent.
While the projected administration
bill would be aimed only at removing
the ambiguities and other faults of
the present law, by which sharp-
witted citizens avoid the payment of
taxes, it would open up the entire
tax question in the Senate.
Slater's Trial

Haskell Also Faces Trial
On Same Charge Rising
From Picketing
Myron E. Slater, owner of the Col-

with using indecent language at a
strike-demonstration April 8, is ex-
pected to come up for jury trial Tues-
day, June 1, in Justice Jay H. Payne's
Raphael Haskell, '38E, arrested the
same night during picketing of the
City Hall, will appear earlier in the
week in Justice Payne's court.
The warrant, which Robert C. B.
Campbell, Grad., swore out against
Slater on April 22, reads:
"One Myron E. Slater, late of the
city of Ann Arbor, Washtenaw, Mich-
igan, was then and there a disorderly
person contrary to an ordinance .. .
in that said Myron E. Slater did then
and there use indecent and immoral
language in a certain public place..."
Edward Magdol, '39, night editor
on The Daily staff, Arnold Kambly,
'38, and Paul Christman, Ann Arbor
resident, all arrested at the demon-
stration, and Slater are charged with
breaking the same section of the dis-
orderly conduct ordinance, which
"Any person who shall be guilty of
using indecent or immoral language,

or be guilty of any indecent or im-
moral conduct or behavior, in any
public building street, alley, lane or
public place in this city, shall be
punished as hereinafter provided."
Ralph Neafus, '36F&C, and Joseph
Bernstein, '39, have been found guilty
of disorderly conduct in connection
with the April 8 demonstration. They
both were released on bond and have

Freshmen Frolic,
Revive Tradition
Of Old Ati Picnic,
ILife begins with '40, hot dogs and
freshmen will be freshmen!
The crack of bats on baseballs was
accompanied by the discordant
strains of "The Victors" and an occa-
sional splash as Sam Perry, '40, dove
into three feet of water to retrieve
balls yesterday afternoon when the
freshmen revived an old Michigan
tradition in their Frosh Picnic.
The band, which led the group from
the steps of Hill Auditorium down to
The Island, carried on valiantly, even
the tuba player, when they found to
their chagrin that they had turned
the wrong corner and were rapidly
being deserted by their followers.
On The Island a seemingly inter-
minable baseball game was in prog-
ress. The players worked in shifts
and varied their baseball with a little
tree climbing and wading. As far as
anyone could remember the women

UAWA Plans
Second Drive
On Ford Plant
Republic Steel Supplies
Workers With Food By
Plane; Other Mills Shut
Both Sides Claim
Workers' Support
DETROIT, May 29.- (P)- The
United Automobile Workers of Amer-
ica, seeking to unionize the 150,000
Ford Motor Company employes,
pushed plans today for another drive
against the gates of the company's
Rouge plant, largest industrial unit
in the world. The plant was closed
today for the Memorial day week-end,
resumption of operations being sched-
uled for Tuesday.
A welter of contradictory claims
surrounded progress so far in the at-
tempt to organize the 89,300 persons
employed in the Rouge plant in sub-
urban Dearborn.
Loyalty Pledges Received
Harry H. Bennett, director of per-
sonnel for the Ford Company, said
unsolicited "pledges of loyalty" to
the independent manufacturer who
opposes labor unions have been re-
ceived from approximately 60,000 of
the Rouge plant employes.
Sometime next week-presumably
Wednesday or Thursday-the Union
plans another foray into Dearborn
to distribute handbills and a special
edition of its official publication to
Ford workers arriving or departing
from the plant.
Meanwhile the American Federa-
tion of Labor sought to take the play
from the UAWA in the strike against
the Ford assembly plant in Rich-
mond, Calif., by promising to put the
disputants back to work at $8 for an
eight hour day.
News On Steel Front
(By Associated Press)
Supplies were carried to beleag-
uered workers by air and water yes-
terday to circumvent picket lines
thrown by steel strikers.
The Republic Steel Corporation,
endeavoring to continue operations
despite the widespread walkout af-
fecting 72,000 men, chartered planes
to drop food to non-striking em-
ployes in the Warren and Niles, 0.,
plants and sent provender up the Lit-
tle Calumet River by launch to the
men in its mill in South Chicago.
The other two independent pro-
ducers engaged in a contract contro-
versy with the steel woidkers organ-
izing committee-the Youngstown
Sheet and Tube Co. and the Inland
Steel Corp.-have shut down.
