River Valley
Action Asked
By President
Plan Calls For Blanketing
Of Country With Seven
RegionalAuthorities
Bill Is Introduced
By Senator Norris
WASHINGTON, June 3.-()-
President Roosevelt asked Congress
today for legislation giving every ma-
jor river valley in the nation a TVA
of its own.
While Republicans and the organ-
ized public utilities denounced the
plan, and Administration adherents
came to its defense, Senator Norris1
(Ind., Neb.), called the "Father of
the Tennessee Valley Authority" in-1
troduced a bill to make the proposalj
effective.
With a plea for conservation of
the Nation's natural wealth and for
protection against dust storms, floods
and droughts, Mr. Roosevelt proposed
that the country be blanketed with
seven regional authorities ,to have
charge of the work.
Suggested Territories
He suggested that the territories
assigned to them be the Atlantic
Seaboard, the Great Lakes, and Ohio
Valley, the drainage basin of the
Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers,
the basins of the Missouri River and
Red River of the North, the basins of
the Arkansas, Red and Rio Grande
Rivers, the basins of the ColoradoI
and Rivers flowing into the Pacific
south of the California-Oregon
boundary, and the basin of the Co-'
lumbia River. To those he added,
the existing Mississippi River Com-
mission, which would be left undis-
turbed:.
With the exception of the Ten-'
nessee and Columbia Valley Authori-
ties, Mr. Roosevelt said ,the work of
these authorities "at least in their
early years would consist in de-
veloping integrated plans to conserve
and safeguard the prudent use of
waters, waterpower, soils, forests and
other resources of the areas entrust-
ed to their charge."
Comiprehenslve Flodd Plan,
Dust storms, floods and droughts,
the President told Congress, are na-
ture's warning that the nation must
act while there is time to preserve
natural resources for the present and
succeeding generations.
"A comprehensive plan of flood
control must embrace not only down-
stream levees and floodways, and re-
tarding dams and reservoirs on ma-
jor tributaries, but also smaller dams
and reservoirs on the lesser tribu-'
taries, and measures of applied con-
servation throughout an entire
drainage area, such as restoration of
forests and grasses on inferior lands,
and encouragement of farm practices
which diminish runoff and prevent
erosion on arable lands," the Presi-
dent said.

Compromise
00 Court Plan
Is Indicated
Senator Robinson Declares
He Is Not A Candidate
For Judiciary Vacancy
WASHINGTON, June 3.-UP)-
Senator Robinson, of Arkansas, the
majority leader, strongly indicated
after a White House conference to-
night that the Administration may
propose a compromise on the Su-
preme Court reorganization bill.
Robinson at the same time said he
was not a candidate himself for the
Supreme Court vacancy created by
the retirement of Justice Van De-
vanter and that it had not been dis-
cussed with the President.
The Arkansas senator said after the
two-hour session at the executive
mansion that the bill to add new jus-
tices to the court if incumbents over
70 do not retire would be pressed for
action at this session.
He quickly added, however, that
some amendments would be sub-
mitted and that he- might offer one
himself.

Robinson would not disclose what
the amendments would be, saying
"You will have to wait and see."

State House
Passes Labor
Relations Bill

General Mola Dies

As

Plane Crashes

Grants Government Righik
To Seize, Operate Strike
Threatened Plants
Measure Approved
In Form Demanded
LANSING, June 3.-(P)-A labor
relations bill, endorsed by Governor
Murphy as a method of preserving in-
dustrial peace in Michigan, received
approval of the House of Representa-
tives today by a vote of 63 to 31. It
goes to the Senate for concurrence.
The measure, granting the State
power to seize and operate major
plants threatened by strike, and pro-
viding machinery to avert or quickly
settle labor disputes, through control
in the form demanded ay Democratic
floor leaders.
Two Amendments Carried
Only two important amendments
carried. One would forbid strikes by
state or municipal employes whose
work affects public welfare or safety.
The other would increase the salaries
of members of the State Labor Rela-
tions Board from $4,000 a year to $5,-
000.
Attempts by Rep. George C. Wat-
son, (Rep., Capac), to attach amend-
ments which would have outlawed sit-
down strikes and picketing which
barred egress to strike-affected plants
were voted down by narrow margins.
He also lost in an attempt to pre-
serve for the courts the power to issue
temporary injunctions in labor dis-
putes. The bill takes away that au-
thority.
Rep. Ellis E. Faulkner, (Rep., Del-
ton), criticized the measure as "fair
neither to employers nor employees."
He demanded that it be killed and
substituted by Governor Murphy's
original "model" labor relations bill,
which was rewritten in the House
Labor Committee.
Governor's Bill
Rep, Joseph C. Murphy, Democratic
floor leader, asserted in reply: "Don't
let anybody tell this is not the Gov-
ernor's bill. He has said it is a good
bill, acceptable to both the employer
and the employe."
A ser-comedy by-play marked
consideration of the bill after Rep.
Philip J. Rahoi, (Dem., Iron Moun-
tain), and Speaker George A. Schroe-
der' came to the verge of blows. Ra-
hoi, disgruntled because he had failed
to eliminate a section of the bill yes-
terday granting the State power to
seize plants, forced the reading of
the bill, word for word, in retaliation.
It required a full half hour, not
counting time lost in debate.

LAROCHE - MIGENNES, France,
June 4.-(AP)-The Duke and Duchess
of Windsor boarded the Simplon-
Orient Express at this small station
in the department of Yonne early
today and sped away on their honey-
moon journey to Austria.
The world's most famous couple,
nlaing motored here from the Cha-
teau de Cande where they were mar-
ried yesterday, boarded the train a

Austria.
The shiny special car attached at
Paris was made ready for the couple's

(By Associated Press)
Steel strike leaders intensified their
efforts to force three producers to
sign contracts yesterday (Thursday).a
Philip Murray, chairman of the
Steel Workers Organizing Committee,
said an effort to "shut off the source;
of supply" was being made through
r Ij ment of iron mine workers in
Minnesota and northern Michigan.
Representative John Bernard, (F.L.,
Minn.) was appointed to direct the
campaign.
Republic Steel Corp., largest of the
strike-harassed steel firms, continued
to operate several plants in spite of
the picket siege. Planes flew food
over the enemy lines to two factories
in Ohio. A rush of workers attempt-
ing to enter the Warren, O., plant re-
sulted in one picket being wounded
slightly. Two loyal workers pierced
the line; four were repulsed.
The Calumet area in Illinois and
Indiana was quite. Unionists gath-
ered for a mass funeral service for
some of the victims in last Sunday's
bloody battle. The seventh picket
died during the day. More than a,
score still were in hospitals.
Representatives of three quarters'
of a million railroad workers met in'
Chicago with railroad operators'
spokesmen to negotiate demands for

House Ways And Means
Head Says New Form
Of 'Taxation Needed
LANSING, June 3.-(P)-Rep. M.{
Clyde Stout of Ionia, chairman of the
house ways and means committee,'
said today he considered the state's
budget $10,000,000 to $15,000,000 "or
more" out of balance.
"We will need some new form of'
taxation," he warned, "unless we -can
reduce the appropriation bills to con-
form with the anticipated revenue."
His statement coincided with the
Senate's action today in approving a,
$47,000,000 appropriation for state
school aid, and his own committe's
decision to add approximately $3,-
000,000 to the recommended approp-
riation for state departments.
The school aid bill adds more than
$9,000,000 to the amount given
schools in the year now ending.
Stout declined to endorse any of a
number of revenue bills introduced
in the legislative sessions. Among
them were measures to invoke an in-
come tax, legalize gambling and li-
cense it, to increase the sales tax
from three per cent to four per cent,

Officer Was Commander
Of All Insurgent Armies
In Northern Spain
Pilots, Staff Officers
Die In Same Crash
Bespectacled Leader Was
General Franco's Ablest
Strategist And Assistant
VICTORIA, Spain, June 3.-()-
reneral Emilio Mola, Commander of
all Insurgent armies in Northern
Spain and director of the two-months
)ld siege of Bilbao, was killed today
in the crash of a fog-bound airplane.
Two of his staff officers and two
pilots died with him in the wreck
near Briviesca, 25 miles northeast of
Burgos, capital of Generalissimo
Francisco Franco's Insurgent Regime
early in the war and still a Franco
stronghold.
Mola's body was thrown 25 yards
from the wrecked plane and was so
adly mangled it could be identified
nly by the tan waterproof coat he
more.
The bespectacled Mola was Fran-
co's righthand mnan, accounted. the
ablest strategist among all the In-
urgent Chieftain's lieutenants. He
was in command of the drive which
had carried the insurgent forces with-
n sight of Bilbao, Basque capital on
he Bay of Biscay.
Returning From Biscay
Mola was flying from the Bay of
Biscay front when he met his death.
Only Gen. Gonzalo Queipo de Llano
had a place comparable to Mola's in
Franco's command. Mola was in
charge of the north and even com-
manded the Madrid front when Fran-
o himself was not there.
Queipo de Llano was in command
n the South and was often Franco's
spokesman in radio broadcasts. It
was his men who swept most of the
Southern seaboard in February, cap-
turing Malaga.
The loss of Mola was considered
a tremendous blow to France's mU l-
tary campaign at Bilbao's Wo
would take command was not known;
Insurgent radio stations shut down
after broadcasting the first reports of
his death.
He was the second important figure
in the Fascist revolt to die in an
airplane smashup. The first was Gen.
Jose Sanjurjo, who was killed last
July 20-two days after the rebellion
began-when he started to fly back to
Spain from Lisbon.
It was reported Sanjurjo, instead of
Franco, would have been the choice
of theinsurgents for dictator after
the hoped-for triumph.
Italo-German Parley
ROME, June 3.--P)-Premier Ben-
ito Mussolini today piloted Reichs-
fuehrer Adolf Hitler's war minister
through a realistic display of Italy's
military power and then the two laid
plans for Italo-German collaboration
in the Spanish war and wars to come.
The German visitor was Field Mar-
shal Werner Von Blomberg. Here
chiefly to confer on the Spanish
crisis, he scouted the strength Italy
can muster alongside that of Ger-
many. Much of it Ile saw from an
airplane with Il Duce himself at the
controls.
The conferences with Mussolini and
Ciano were on the Spanish situation,
afterward there were persistent re-
ports plans for an intensified Italo-
German-Insurgent drive against the
government-held city of Bilbao had
been discussed.
Patrol Plan S ubmitted
LONDON, June 3.-(P)-Great Bri-
tain today submitted a three-point
program for drawing Germany and.
Italy back into the non-intervention
patrol of warring Spain.

NEW YORK, June 3.-(P)-Maur-
ice Wertheim, publisher of The Na-
tion, who recently disagreed with the
editors of the magazine in their en-
dorsement of President Roosevelt's
court reforms, today announced that
the publication would be sold to Freda
Kirchwey, its senior editor.
Citing the instance in which he and
Oswald Garrison Villard, former pub-
lisher, took issue with The Nation on
the court plan, Wertheim said, "It,
has become increasingly clear that!
group control is not effective and
that absentee ownership creates an
anamolous situation."
After 11 years as a member of the
magazine's board, Wertheim created
the civic aid foundation in 1935 to
buy The Nation, then in financial dif-
ficulties, from Villard. Wertheim con-
trols the foundation.

Janitors Spend $130 Monthly
To Live; Get $85, Budget Shows

By STAN SWINTON
University janitors receive an aver-
age wage of $85 monthly, while it
costs them an average of $130 a
month to live on a subsistence level,
a typical budget made up yesterday
by two janitors, Frank Kunze and
Will Canter, showed.
"We appreciate the attitude of co-
operation of Mr. Pardon (superinten-
dent of Buildings and Grounds De-
partment) and the way he has re-
lieved us from fear of retribution for
union activities, but much more im-
portant to us than vacations or sick
aid is the immediate need for higher
wages," Canter stated.
Cnnitr d tvnical.t h hudget

The budget made up by the two
men, one of whom is the father of
one child and the other of three chil-
dren, runs as follows: rent, $35; food,
$50; light and heat, $17.50; clothing,
$10; car, $15; emergency medical
care, $2.50. Many of the men must
live outside the city limits because
rents are higher near the campus and
the car therefore becomes an absolute
necessity, Canter said.
Not only will the newly-formed
janitors union, which already has
40 of the 100 janitors in its member-
ship, attempt to have wages raised,
but there is a possibility that some-
time in the future it will be used
as a unit for cooperative buying, Can-
ter hopes. Dues of one dollar month-
