Suburb Heads
To Face Grand
Jury In Ford
Riot Hearing
Witnesses Give Evidence
Of Assault On UAW Men
By FordEmployes
Airplane Advertises
Meeting Of Union
DETROIT, June 1.-(P)-Officials
of suburban Dearborn, where United
Automobile Workers officials were
beaten and chased away from gates
of the Ford Motor Company last Wed-
nesday, were subpoenaed tonight to
testify before a Wayne County grand
jury.
Duncan C. McCrea, prosecutor who
evidence of "unprovoked assault by
Ford men," issued summons for
Mayor John L. Carey and Police Chief
Carl A. Brooks of Dearborn to testify
before a Common Please Court grand
jury.
After the riot in which 18 persons
were injured, McCrea asked Carey to
"bring to this office all of the par-
ties involved" and requested that
Harry H. Bennett, Ford personnel di-
rector, produce any company em-
ployes who appeared in newspaper
photographs of the fighting. When
no answer was received from either
Carey or Bennett, the prosecutor
moved to bring the case to the at-
tention of the grand jury.
The Union made its first move
since the riot today in the direction
of the Ford plant, sending an or-
ganizer in an airplane cruising over
Dearborn to advertise through an
amplifier a mass meeting arranged
for Saturday afternoon.
The Ford organizing committee of
the UAWA planned to meet tomor-
row to set a date for another effort
to distribute union literature to Ford
employes. The Union has a permit
from the Dearbornicity council for
such' distribution, and Bennett has
said that "we have no concern" with
such action "provided they do not
trespass."
Company Admits Arms
Are Stored In Plants
YOUNGSTOWN, June L-P)-Rc-
public Steel Corporation executives
admitted tonight arms and ammuni-
tion are stored in the company's
strike bound plants and asserted "it
will be a tough job for any outside
organizers to come between Republic
and our men."~
Tom L. Girdler, Republic chair-
man, in Cleveland assailed the Steel
Workers Organizing Committee's bar-
gaining contract demands, in the
first press conference of Republic
executives since the strike began.
MOBILIZE 1,000 POLICE
(By Associated Press)
Nearly a 1,000 policemen were mo-
bilized for duty in the vicinity of the
Republic Steel Corporation's South
Chicago plant in response to reports
Steel Workers Organizing Commit-
tee leaders planned a new march on
the mill, operating with 1,400 work-
ers in defiance of the strike call.
Disclosure that one of the five men
killed in Sunday's bloody riot near
the plant was a Communist stirred
the opening session of a coroner's in-
quest.
The state attorney's office at Chi-
cago announced an investigation of
"outside agitation" of strike violence
would be made.

John L. Lewis, chairman of the
Committee for Industrial Organiza-
tion, termed the riot deaths "planned
murder." Republic officials replied
that his statement was "preposter-
ous."

(P)-Amelia Earhart set her twin-
motored silver monoplane down here
today, completing the first leg of her
proposed "just for fun" flight from
west to east around the world's equa-
tor.

her navigator, Captain Fred Noonan,
landed at 1:30 p.m. E.S.T. at the end
of an uneventful 1,033-mile hop from
Miami.
She made the flight in seven hours,

Coward Plays
Will un Here
UntilSaturday
Following last night's premiere,
group two of Noel Coward's new cycle
of plays, "Tonight at 8:30," will run
through this week until Saturday
night, with Jesse Royce Landis and
Charles Romano in the leads.
The second group in the series pre-
sents a contrast with the first in the
character of the plays comprising it,
according to Robert Henderson, di-
rector. Two musical comedies, "Fam-
ily Album" and "Shadow Play" will
be presented, with "Fumed Oak," an
ironic comedy. The first group of
the cycle was offered as the ripening
presentation of the Dramatic Season.
There will be eight performances
of this week's production, including
matinees Wednesday, Friday and Sat-
urday.
Both Miss Landis and Romano have
backgrounds for musical comedy
work. Miss Landis has never taken
singing roles previous to her engage-
ment here, but is well known as a
singer as well as for her work in
"Merrily We Roll Along," "Peter Ib-
betson," and "Love From a Stranger."
Romano has been playing Johann
Strauss, Sr., in "The Great Waltz" for
the past three years. Two years ago
he played with the Henderson pro-
duction of Design for Living" in De-
troit with Violet Heming. He has
done many musical comedy roles

Neafus Ends
Strike Case
Appeal Plea
Pays $42.35 Costs, Fine
Before Justice Jay H.
Payne's Court
Haskell Enters Plea
Of Nolo Contendere'
Ralph Neafus, '36F&C, arrested on
disorderly conduct charges in connec-
tion with a strike-demonstration here
April 8, withdrew his appeal from the
Circuit Court and paid $42.35 in fine
and costs yesterday in Justice Jay H.
Payne's Court.
Rafael Haskell, '38E, arrested dur-
ing picketing of the City Hall at the
same demonstration, entered a plea
of "nolo contendere" and paid $10.80
in fine and costs.
Does Not Admit Guilt
The plea of "nolo contendere" or "I
do not wish 'to contest," which Has-
kell substituted for his original plea
of "not guilty," means that the de-
fendant is amenable to the court's
decision, although he neither admits
nor denies his guilt.
"In view of what has transpired, I
do not think it worth contesting my
case," Haskell said yesterday.
Myron E. Slater, owner of the Col-
lege Book Shop, charged in a warrant
with using indecent language at the
demonstration, was to have appeared
for trial yesterday. Slater's hearing
was postponed and will be held after
the trials of those arrested April 8.
Edward Magdol, '39, night editor on
The Daily staff, Arnold Kambly, '38,
and Paul Christman, Ann Arbor resi-
dent, all arrested for use of indecent
language, remain to be tried.
Bernstein, Downs Guilty
Joseph Bernstein, '9, and Tom
Downs, '39, president of the Student
Workers Federation, have been found
guilty of disorderly conduct. They
were released on bond and have filed
appeals in the Circuit Court.
The demonstration and picketing
took place to protest the action of
Herbert Cassell, manager of the Ann
Arbor Recreation's bowling alleys,
who was charged with having gone
back on an agreement to raise pin
boys' earnings from four to five cents
a line.
Pontiac Rent
Strike' Called
By Auto Union
Union Plans Similar Strike
In Detroit July 1 If Public
Interest Is Aroused
PONTIAC, Mich., June 1.-(/P)-A
"rent strike" directed by a United
Automobile Workers committee began
here today, while a Detroit member
of the union disclosed tentative plans
for similar action there on July 1.
Mort J. Furay, who said in Detroit
he had been designated to head a
"committee for organization of rent-
ers and consumers," said 48 families
there already had refused to pay $5
monthly rent increases.
He issued calls for a mass meeting
next Tuesday night, to be addressed
by Homer Martin, president of the
UAWA, and for a "conference, to be
held June 26. He said a "rent strike"
would be called in Detroit July 1 "if
sufficient public interest is aroused,"
and predicted that 50,000 industrial
workers would join in it.

An announcement by Charles Bar-
ker, chairman of the Pontiac UAWA
committee, that "the strike is on"
offered the only tangible evidence to-
day that the movement to reduce
rents here had started on schedule.
Three weeks ago, the committee
sent notices to several thousand land-
lords that rent payments would cease
on June 1 unless "adjustments' were
made. Barker said there had been
approximately 200 reductions.
Tomorrow, the committee will set'
up headquarters where lists of "fair"

wealthy

persons whom PresidentI

Roosevelt accused of dodging taxes.
Soon after Mr. Roosevelt demand-
ed that the "evil practices" be
stopped, the Senate adopted a reso-
lution for an investigation. Leaders
said the inquiry would lay the facts
before the public and furnish the
basis for laws to circumvent the
'clever little scheme" by which tax
payments are avoided.
The measure, establishing a joint
committee of six Senators and six
members of the House to conduct the
inquiry, was introduced in the House
as well, with favorable action there
expected in a day or so.
Relates Methods
In his message, President Roosevelt
included a letter from Secretary Mor-I
genthau relating some of the methods
of the alleged tax dodgers-numerous
personal corporations, incorporation
of yachts, racing stables and the like.
Congress, as well as the President,
was plainly indignant. From every
faction came quick statements of
sympathy with the Chief Executive's
purpose and of determination to end
tax evasion,
"What the facts set forth mean to
me," said the President, "is that we
have reached another major difficul-
ty in the maintenance of the normal
processes of our government.
"We are trying harder than ever
before to relieve suffering and want,
to protect th weak, to curb avarice, to
prevent booms and depressions--and
to balance the budget.
Taxation Called Necessary
"Taxation necessary to these ends
is the foundation of sound govern-
ment finance. When our legitimate
revenues are attacked, the whole
structure of our government is at-~
tacked. 'Clever little schemes' (he
quoted Secretary Morgenthau) are
not admirable when they undermine
the foundations of society."
Mr. Roosevelt asked that Congress
bear in mind a distinction between
the action proposed and legislation
revising the tax schedules. Recom-
mendations to the latter end will be
sent to Congress shortly before the
next session, he said.
Hardly had the President's mes-
sage been read than the investigation
resolutions were introduced by Chair-
man Harrison (Dem., Miss.) of the
Senate Finance Committee and
Chairman Doughton (Dem., N.C.) of
the House Ways and Means Commit-
tee.

In Spanish

Crisis

Envoys Of Both Countries I
Give Different Versions
Of Incident
WASHINGTON, June 1.--{')---Sec-
retary Hull disclosed today that he
had urged both Germany and the,
Spanish Loyalist government, in ef-
fect, to refrain from going to war
with each other.
His plea, made to the ambassadors
of each nation in separate interviews,
expressed the hope of the United
States that their governments would
be able to adjust their difference
peaceably.
It. was the first direct move by the
United States to prevent a major in-
ternational war as a result of the
Spanish attack on a German cruiser
and the German bombardment of the
port of Almeria.
After considering the crisis at the
State Department yesterday, Hull
went to his home and there sum-
moned Hans Dieckhoff, the German
ambassador.
In substance, the Secretary out-
lined this government's earnest hope
for the preservation of peace through-
out the world. He said it preaches
and urges peace on every government
at all times. He called attention to
its fixed policy to pursue its own in-
dependent course with respect to
Spain. Then he expressed his earnest
hope that Germany might find a
means for a peaceable adjustment of.
the Almeria incident.
Dieckhoff thereupon gave the sec-
retary his government's version of the
incident, which Germany contends
was justifiable retaliation for the at-
tack on the German warship.
Second Student

Is Announced
Oct. I Set As Opening Date
Of National Contest By
Play Bureau
The second competition sponsored
by the Bureau of New Plays for col-
lege students and recent graduates
will open Oct. 1 and close Dec. 15,
Theresa Helburn, director, announced
yesterday.
The dates were decided on after a
series of preliminary meetings be-
tween Miss Helburn and the advisory
council composed of Walter Prichard
Eaton of Yale, chairman; Frederick
H. Koch of the University of North
Carolina; and Prof. Kenneth Rowe
of the University of Michigan. Seven
motion picture companies are spon-
soring the Bureau.
Awards of $500 will be made to the
authors of the six best plays sub-
mitted in the competition. At the
discretion of the Bureau of New Plays,
and on the basis of future promise
and financial needs, these awards
may be increased to scholarship
awards of $1250 or to fellowship
awards of from $1,500 to $2,500.
More awards may be granted if the
material submitted justifies it. If, in
the opinion of the judges, the ma-
terial submitted does not justify the
full quota of awards, the Bureau re-
serves the right to grant only as
many as they recommend, according
to Miss Helburn

All students who are to receiver
a Hopwood award will be notified
before 12 o'clock today.
Hopwood contests awards accordingr
to Prof. Roy W. Cowden of the Eng-
lish department, director of the
awards.
Morley will speak on "A Successor
to Mark Twain," Professor Cowden
said. According to present plans,
Hopwood contestants and members oft
the Hopwood Committee will be in-~
vited to meet the lecturer in the
Ethel Fountain Hussey Room of the

Awards are to be made in the fields1
of fiction, drama essay and poetry,
in both major and minor divisions.
Major awards in the contests usually
run from $500 to $2,000 at the judges'
discretion, depending on the quality

may be reduced in certain fields, Pro-
fessor Cowden said.
Judges for the contest will also be
announced at the meeting in the
Union. Hopwood judges are usually
chosen from men of national literary
repute, and have included in the past
such well-known figures as Robert P.
Tristram Coffin, T. S. Stribling, Arch-
ibald MacLeish and Louis Unter-
meyer.
Schorling Poll
Shows Support
For Book Plan
More than one-fourth of the stu-
dents in the University will donate
books to the student text book loar,
fund to be established next semester,
if a poll taken by Prof. Raleigh
Schorling of the School of Education
is a fair criterion.
Out of a total of 146 students
polled by Professor Schorling, 42
pledged assistance to the fund, pro-
mising to give 47 books, or a little less
than one book for every three stu-
dents. If this percentage were ap-

plied to the entire enrollment in the
College of Literature, Science and the
Arts, nearly 2,000 text books would be
accounted for.
Professor Schorling's count was
taken among senior students in a
class in directed teaching. The re-
sults confirm those obtained by Prof.
Arthur D. Moore of the College of
Engineering in a poll conducted
among students of that college.
Both Professor Schorling and Dean
James B. Edmonson of the education
school warmly endorsed the book loan
project, which is designed for the
narvnos of aiding student in financial

Return Of Reich, Italy To
Neutrality Pact Hinges
On Committee's Verdict
Zones For Neutrals
BeingConsidered
Ruins Of Almeria Hunted
For Victims Of Nazi
Revenge Bombardment
LONDON, June 1.-(/P)-The re-
turn of Germany and Italy to Eur-
ope's 27-nation neutrality commit-
tee tonight appeared to hinge upon
the committee's decision whether to
use force against Spain in prevent-
ing interference with neutral ship-
ping.
The two nations withdrew from
the committee yesterday until they
receive guarantees against further in-'
cidents such as Spanish Government
air bombardment of the German bat-
tleship Deutschland and the Italian
naval supply ship. Barletta.
France and Britain suggested safe-
ty zones for neutral shipping, which
both the Insurgent and Madrid-Va-
lencia Governments appeared willing
to consider.
Germany Seeks Force
Germany, however, wanted the
further step, informed sources said
-use of force by the neutrality com-
mittee's naval patrol, now seeking
by peaceful inspection of transport
ships to prevent shipment of arms or
munitions to either side in the civil
conflict.
There were some who believed that
creation of a sort of international
navy to guarantee that Spain will
keep the peace at sea might be de-
vised.
Britain took what appeared to be
a step to reassure Berlin and Rome
today by seconding their protests
against Spanish Government bom-
Oardments.
British spokesmen made clear,
however, that while the Government
denlored attacks such as the Deut-
scnland bombing it by no means con-
doned Germany's retaliatory bom-
bardment of the Spanish Govern-
ment's port of Almeria.
30 Dead At Almeria
ALMERIA, Spain, June 1.-(P)-
Rescue workers searched through
shell-torn wreckage today for more
dead and injured from the German
revenge bombardment of this gov-
ernment-held port.
Thirty bodies had already been
taken from the wreckage and of-
ficials expected to find more in the
heaps of masonry and broken tim-
bers strewn throughout the city. At
least 150 were believed wounded.
Heavier casualties probably were
prevented by an air raid alarm just
before the German warships started
to spread havoc.
A German hydroplane scouting
over the city caused alarm that sent
frightened inhabitants s c u r r y i n g
through the streets early Monday to
find shelter. Nearly every building
in the cty was damaged and more
than 50 completely destroyed.
Many women and children were
among the victims. Emergency hos-
pitals quickly were set up in the
buildings less seriously damaged.
Officials of the Almeria naval base
said the bombardment lasted a half
an hour without interruption, and
then was succeeded by shells that fell
into the city at two minute intervals.
