London, Paris
Extend Patrol
To 'Bottle Up
War InSpain
Want Italy And Germany
To Come Back Again To
'Hands Off' Committee
Roosevelt Reticent
On Foreign Policy
(By Associated Press)
France and Great Britain sought
last night to weld around Spain a
danger-proof international naval pa-
trol.
A patrol guaranteed against at-
tack was the price GCrmany and Italy
demanded for their return to coop-
eration withrthe European "Hands-
Off Spain" Committee in its efforts to
isolate the civil war within Spain.
A French foreign office spokesman
said Britain and France had agreed
on a plan whereby warships of the
international patrol would remain
outside Spanish waters and the fleets
would be unified.
Eden To Consult Fascists
Anthony Eden, British Foreign Sec-
retary, he declared, will present the
plan to Germany and Italy, which
withdrew Monday from the existing
patrol after their warships were
bombed by Spanish government war-
planes and Germany in revenge bom-
barded Almeria.
Until Germany and Italy return to
the committee fold, the spokesman
said, "it may be considered that
France and Great Britain already are
extending their patrols as a provi-
sional measure."
Italian warships, however, re-
mained in "voluntary control" of2
Spanish waters under Premier Mus-
solini's orders to use force if neces-
sary to prevent "Communist contra-
band, arms and munitions" from
reaching the Spanish government.
FDR Is Unchanged
WASHINGTON, June 2.-(P)-
President Roosevelt canvassed the
general European situation with his
state department aides today, but
White House attaches said he gave
no indication of any new foreigi pol-
icy.
He conferred at luncheon with Sec-
retary Hull, under-Secretary of State
Sumner Welles and Norman H. Davis,
the American "ambassador-at-large."
House To Hold
Last Labor Bill
Review Today
Governor Would Be Given
Right To Forbid Strikes
And To Seize Plants
LANSING, June 2.-UP)-A labor
relations bill clothing the Governor
not only with power to forbid a major
strike or lockout but to seize strike-
threatened plants when he deemed
that necessary advanced through
three hours of debate in the House of
Representatives tonight, and was set
for a final vote tomorrow.
The House Democratic majority
beat off attempts to attach amend-
ments unacceptable tot Gov. Murphy.
Republicans and rebel Democrats
alike suffered under the roaring

chorus of "ayes" led by Rep. Joseph
C. Murphy, Democratic floor leader.
Rep. Murphy said the bill "implied"
the Governor's right to take over for
state operation when a strike threat-
ened to work great public hardship. A
provision which would have openly
asserted this authority had been
stricken out in committee.
Rep. Philip J. Rahoi, Democrat,
Iron Mountain. fought to the last the
extraordinary powers for the Gov-
ernor, contending "both the CIO and
the American Federation of Labor
oppose it."
Murphy Will Urge
Sound Fiscal Policy
LANSING, June 2.-(OP)---The nec-
essity for the adoption of a sound
fiscal policy by the state will be
urged upon the legislature by Gover-
nor Murphy.
The Governor said he would dis-
cuss the growing budget with House
and Senate leaders, but declined to
say *whether he would advocate or

Distinguished AlumnaeTo Unite
Here For Coming Celebration

Festival Leaders Announce
Strong Enthusiasm By
All Women's Groups
I
Michigan alumnae have shown such
enthusiasm for the coming celebra-
tion that the affair will probably
bring to campus more distinguished
Michigan women than ever assembled
before, according to Mrs. Beach Con-
ger, executive secretary of the Alum-
nae Council.
The most important function of
the 1937 Celebration, as far as the
women are concerned, Mrs. Conger
said, will be the annual alumnae din-
ner to be held at 6:15 p.m. Thursday,
June 17, in the League Ballroom. Mrs.
Marie Winsor Stebbins, '06, chair-
man of the Alumnae Council, will
preside at this dinner and Dean Alice
C. Lloyd, '16, will serve as toastmas-
ter.
The teas which are to be held every
day of the Celebration at 4 p.m. in the
League and the breakfast round-
table at 8:30 a.m. Friday will also be
outstanding features, Mrs. Conger
pointed out. Various organized
groups throughout the country will
serve as hostesses for the teas, she
said, while Pauline Benedict Fischer,
'23 will lead the breakfast discussion
on the topic: "What Shall We Write
About."
A cabaret supper to be held at 6 p.m.
Friday will feature a fashion review
of clothes worn on campus from 1870
to 1937. Wedding gowns from the

State Lawyers
Announce City
As Meeting Site
Law School Facilities Will]
Be Available For Second
Annual Bar Conference
The second annual meeting of the
State Bar of Michigan will be held
Sept. 16, 17 and 18 in Ann Arbor,
Roscoe O. Bonisteel, state president,;
announced yesterday.
The State Bar, which has a mem-
bership of 6,000 lawyers in Michigan,
has been offered the facilities of the
Law School and other buildings by
the University for its meetings here.
Mr. Bonisteel predicted that this will
be the largest meeting of attorneys
ever held in the state.
Section meetings will be devoted to
local bar association problems, in-
surance, federal taxation, judicial se-
lection and tenure and other matters.
Housing facilities will be adequate,
Mr. Bonisteel said, because the con-
vention opens the week before Orien-
tation Week.
The Law School faculty, the Cham-
ber of Commerce and other local
groups, have extended an invitation
to the delegates, and offered full co-
operation in assisting with the ar-
rangements, Mr. Bonisteel said.
Jackson, Detroit and Grand Rapids
were among the other cities which
invited the State Bar for the conven-
tion. Speaking for the executive
committee of the Bar, Mr. Bonisteel
said, "We are delighted to accept Ann
Arbor's invitation."
Student Party
Finds Remains
Of 15 Indians
Fifteen human skeletons, believed
to be those of Indians living 500 to 1,-
000 years ago, were unearthed last
week near Mount Clemens by a stu-
dent expedition from the Museum of
Anthropology, headed by Dr. E. F.
Greenman and Mischa Titiev.
Refuse pits and fireplacesindicat-
ing that the site had been used both
as a village and as a burial ground
were also found. Evidence was un-
covered showing that there have been
at least three different occupations
of the territory.
Excavation on this same project
was begun last summer but was not
completed. A museum party will
work on the site under the direction
of Dr. Greenman during the summer
months.
Bones arranged in a similar fa-
shion and in other ways resembling
those discovered near Mount Clem-
ens have been located on another site,
60 miles away, near Imlay City. Ac-
cording to Dr. Greenmen, there is
believed to be some connection be-
tween the two discoveries.

Summer Play
Group Names
8 Productions
Comic Opera With Music
School To Be Feature
Of EightProductions
To Stress Comedy
Through Program
A program of eight current plays
has been chosen for the ninth annual
season of the Michigan Repertory
Players, summer group of the Univer-
sity Play Production, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Valentine B.
Windt, director of the season.
The program will be varied, Mr.
Windt said, with emphasis mainly on'
comedy. There will be also three
serious plays and a comic opera given
in conjunction with the School of
Music.
The season will open with "Path of
Flowers" by Valentine Katayev, au-
thor of last year's comedy success of
the Players, "Squaring the Circle."
This is a new script by the author,
Mr. Windt said. "Ethan Frome,"
Edith Wharton's novel, has been dra-
matized by Owen and Donald Davis,
and will be offered as the second pro-
duction of the season.
"First Lady," satire on politics over
tea-tables in Washington, will be
the third selection. It was written by
Katherine Dayton and George S.
Kaufman, who won this year's Pul-
itzer Prize for his play, "You Can't
Take It With You." This will be the
first time it has been produced by
a non-professional group in the
United States.
A drama of the struggle against
yellow fever, "Yellow Jack," by Syd-
ney Howard, will be the fourth pro-
duction. It is considered one of the
outstanding plays of the last two
seasons, Mr. Windt stated, and is to
be followed by "Pride and Prejudice''
of Helen Jerome, a dramatization of
the novel by Jane Austen.
"Dangerous Corner," by J. B.
Priestley, will be the sixth presenta-
tion. This drama is a psychological
mystery showing the, complications
that can come about when a group
of ordinary persons get together and
start telling the truth, Mr. Windt
explained.
For the third successive year, the
Players will combine with the School
of Music to present a comic opera,
"H.M.S. Pinafore," by Gilbert and
Sullivan. These operas have be-
come one of the most popular parts
of the seasons, Mr. Windt said, and
have become a regular program fea-
ture. "The Bartered Bride," to be

President Get Case
DETROIT, June 2.-UP)-A sub-
poena summoning Edsel Ford, presi-
dent and son of the founder of the
Ford Motor Co., to a one-man grand
jury inquiry into the beating of 18
Union sympathizers a week ago, went
unserved tonight.
Ford attorneys challenged the jur-
isdiction of Common Pleas Judge
Ralph W. Liddy. The judge today
called before him officials of subur-
ban Dearborn, several Ford employes
and members of Ford's Rouge plant
in Dearborn when they tried to dis-
tribute Union leaflets Wednesday.
The United Automobile Workers of
America have filed complaints with
regional offices of the National La-
bor Relations Board at Boston, Mass.,
and Detroit charging the Ford Com-
pany with coercion and intimidation
of employes to prevent them from
joining the Union. Officials of the
board declined to comment.
Other Disputes Ended
At Detroit, the complaint charged
the Ford Co. interfered with the
workers' "Constitutional right to or-
ganize.'
Company and Union officials try-
ing to settle a dispute that closed thet
Chevrolet Grey Iron foundry at Sag-
inaw, employing 5,500, said the plant
would reopen tomorrow.
The last legal action remaining
from a riot Jan. 11 at Fisher Bodyj
plant No. 2 at Flint during the Gen-
eral Motors strike, was ended today
when Circuit Judge Paul V. Gadola1
dismissed charges of inciting to riot
against Victor Reuther, UAWA or-,
ganizer.
UAWA GOES TO COURT
GRAND RAPIDS, June 2.-(/P)-
The United Automobile Workers went7
into court as a minority stockholder
in a strike-closed company today in
an attempt to compel the manage-1
ment to open negotiations.
It was a new departure in labor
disputes.
SWOC Shoots Defiance
YOUNGSTOWN, O.; June 2.-(GP)--
The Steel Workers Organizing Com-
mittee demanded late today, on the
eve of a strategy conference here,
that strike-bound producers fighting
demands for bargaining contracts
carry their case" to President Roose-
velt "or forever keep their peace."
Van A. Bittner, SWOC regional
director, in a radio address prepared
for delivery at Hammond, nd., de-
clared:
"The SWOC challenges the Re-
public Steel Corp., the Inland Steel
Co. and the Youngstown Sheet &
Tube Co. to carry their case to the
chief executive of the United States.
Let the steel companies accept this
proposition or forever keep their
peace."
Murray To Meet Leaders
Philip Murray, National SWOC,
chieftain, will meet key men from
all sectors of the 500-mile strike front
at Youngstown tomorrow. Murray's
lieutenants will attend from Chicago,
Cleveland, Youngstown, Warren, .,
Canton, 0., and Buffalo. N.Y.

John L. Lewis stepping into the
seven-state steel strike for the second
successive day, declared Republic
should disarm its plants.
MAYOR ASKS PEACE
MONROE, June 2.-UP)--Mayor
Daniel Knaggs said tonight that Mon-
roe authorities would not interfere
with peaceful picketing at the New-
ton Steel Co. plant but that the
pickets must not blockade a road lead-
ing to the mill.
The. mayor visited the plant, an
affiliate of the strike-bound Republic
Steel Corp., late today and talked
with persons on the picket line and
O'Neil Kline, chairman of the strike
committee, and Andy Rabcak, cap-
tain of the pickets.
The mill is at the end of a dead end
road which affords the only means of
approach.

Text Book Loan
P 1 an Desirable
LaRue Sees Solution To
Major Book Problem In'
Next Semester's Project
The student text book lending li-
brary was praised yesterday by two
more faculty members of the literary
college.
Prof. James E. Dunlap of the Latin
department called the library plan
"very desirable," and said that it
should be of great benefit in aiding
many students who now have difficul-
ty obtaining text books. "I have
known a number of instances in
which students have beenunable to
get books at the time when they were
needed or have been forced to get
along without required books because
of lack of funds," he said.
Prof. Carl G. LaRue of the botany
department likewise declared that the
book loan library would be a success-
ful means of solving an important
problem. "The book situation has
caused great difficulty at times. in
the past, and this plan should be
most welcome."
Professor Dunlap expressed hope
that the system of lending books
would not be abused by students not
in actual need ,although he remarked
that the academic advisers, upon
whom the burden of responsibilty for
individual cases would probably fall,
are already overtaxed.
The library, which will be modeled,
on the Loring W. Andrews Library at
Yale, will begin operation next se-
mester, according to present plans.
Democrats Halt
Homestead Tax
Exemption Bill
Measure Is Forced Back
Into Committee Where It
Will Probably Die
LANSING, June 2.-(A)- House
Democrats beat back today an at-
tempt to provide a general $2,000
homestead tax exemption.
Sponsors of the measure had
pressed for a state income tax to fi-
nance it. One of the Democratic
party's pledges in the November elec-
tion was "no new taxes."
The Democrats, voting as a block,
forced the bill back to the taxation
committee. Floor leaders predicted it
would be killed and replaced by one
limiting the exemption to homestead
owners more than 65 years of age, or
veterans of the country's wars. They
indicated this would be acceptable.
A Republican coup had set the
stage for the decision. Rep. Vernon
J. Brown, Rep., had offered the gen-

eral exemption plan of the floor of
the House last week as a substitute.
It was accepted informally, but party
leaders quickly reconsidered. Today
they called a caucus of Democrats
when the bill came up for a final vote.
Three minutes after the caucus had
ended ,the exemption bill was enroute
back to the committee.

Morley Describes Marquis
Before the awarding of the prizes,
Christopher Morley, noted author and
lecturer, delivered the Hopwood ad-
dress. His talk, a discussion of his
old friend, Don Marquis, at present
in a critical condition after a series
of physical and nervous breakdowns,
was entitled, "A Successor to Mark
Twain."
"In his own circle," Morley de-
clared, "Don was the best loved man
of his time. The grotesque and ironic
humor of his parables was often too
blunt for the intellectuals to perceive,
but he was . . . our closest spiritual
descendant of Mark Twain."
The speaker recounted Marquis'
long career as a columnist on the
New York Sun, told of their many
personal experiences together and
discussed Marquis' best-known work
of fiction, "Archy and Mehitabel," of
which he read a passage. He char-
acterized Marquis' writing as distinc-
tive for its remarkable combination

Janitors Promised Wage Rise
If Budget Passes, Pardon Asserts

By STAN SWINTON
University janitors are not forgot-
ten men-their pay will be raised as
soon as an increased budgetary al-
lowance can be secured for them, Ed-
ward C. Pardon, superintendent of
the Buildings and Grounds Depart-
ment, declared yesterday.
"I have felt right along that the
janitors were underpaid in propor-
tion to the cost of living," Mr. Par-
don stated. Pointing out that in-
creased wages in other departments
had been possible only because their

"It is up to the individual, there is
no discrimination," he declared. "We;
hire both union and non-union men.
If the union is the desire of the ma-
jority it is perfectly all right. We,
don't ask or talk about it."
Suggestions made by union mem-
bers that a vacation with pay should
be granted janitors are in line with a
policy which the Buildings and
Grounds department is planning to
put into effect, Mr. Pardon stated.
We have in mind either a one or two
week vacation with pay. This can be
accomplished under the budget
