Action Will Add 90
Rooms To Capacity
A bond issue of $550,000 to com-
plete the interior of the Union addi-
tion on Madison St. and to repay
money already borrowed for work on
the completed addition will be float-
cd by the University in the very near
future, it was learned yesterday.
The issue was approved by the
Board of Regents as its regular meet-
ing Feb. 11, but the finaltarrange-
ments for the issuance of the bonds
was not made until it was determined
whether they would be free from the
federal income tax.
Bonds Tax Free
Yesterday it was learned by a long-
distance telephone call from Wash-
ington that the bonds would be free
from the federal income tax.
Advertising for bids to finish
the interior of the shell now com-
pleted will be put out immediately,
Shirley W. Smith, vice president and
secretary of the University, said yes-
terday.
The contract is expected to be let
and work started within a month, and
the addition is expected to be ready
for occupancy before the opening of
school next fall.
Finished In Fall
The shell was finished last fall,
but insufficient funds prevented the
completion of the work.
The addition will provide for 90
more sleeping rooms for guests of the
Union, both permanent and tempor-
ary, Stanley Waltz, manager of the
Union, said yesterday.
A section of the ground floor will
be devoted to a club room for for-
eign students, nd quarters for the
University Club, now located in the
basement of Alumni Memorial Hall,
will also be installed there.
Two more rooms to accommodate
visiting athletic teams will also be
placed in the new wing.

DLebate Proposals
Of PeaceBallotig
By a single vote, the Student Sen-
ate yesterday rejected, 14 to 13, a
resolution requesting that the federal
state department act to determine he
status and assure humane treatment
of Ralph Neafus, '36F&C, recently
captured by the Insurgent forces in
Spain.
It voted unanimously to retain
Richard Scammon, Grad., as non-
partisan speaker and by 20 votes to
10, chose Tuure Tenander, '38, presi-
dent and majority leader and Alfred
H. Lovell, Jr., vice-president and mi-
nority leader.
Seek Clarification
Four senators indicated to the Daily
after the meeting that they would
have supported the Neafus resolution
if it had been clarified.
Philip Cummins, '39, one of the
leaders of the fight for the resolution
and brother of Robert Cummins, '37,
former Daily associate editor now
fighting with the Loyalists, pointed
to the necessity of concerted protest
to revise the neutrality act in the
Spanish Government's behalf.
Fears Misinterpretation
Carl Viehe, '39, Liberal-Peace-Re-
publican, said that any action the
Student Senate took would be con-
strued as supporting the Loyalist,
cause, and Norman Kewly. '40E, Con-
servative, asked that the Senate
adopt, instead, a measure urging all
American youth not to volunteer for
a foreign war. The latter suggestion
was not voted upon.
There was little debate on any of
the motions until voting on the
Brown Daily Herald's peace poll came
up for discussion. Results of the bal-
loting will be made public when ab-
sehtee ballots have been tabulated.

Settlement Uroed i
it
Before March 31
A resolution passed by the Regents
at their meeting Friday requestingp
the Ann Arbor Press to settle its dif-
ficulties as soon as possible was de-
livered to the printing plant Monday,
according to Herbert G. Watkins, As-
sistant secretary of the University. It
was believed that the University
might withdraw its contracts from
the Ann Arbor Press if an amicable
settlement with the striking typo-
graphical union is not reached by an
early date.
At the same time the Daily learned
that an NLRB complaint was issued
by the Detroit office against the Ann
Arbor Press and mailed to the plant
Monday. Unless a conference secures
compliance with the Wagner Act be-
fore March 31, the hearing will begin
in the Michigan Union on that date.
Urge SettlementV
The Regents' resolution urged anc
early settlement in the best interestsa
of all concerned, Regent John D.
Lynch told the Daily from Detroitr
last night. If the present difficultiesI
are not settled, Regent Lynch said,s
the University may have to look else-
where for its printing work.
A. J. Wiltse, manager of the Ann
Arbor Press, would make no comment2
last night.1
The resolution was passed by the ;
Board after representatives of thet
International Typographical Union
presented their case to the Regents.1
They asked the Board to see thats
printers for the University observe
the National Labor Relations Act and
Michigan Public Act 153, which re-c
quires printing paid for wholly or in1
part by the State to be done under
labor conditions prevalent in the lo-
cality in which the work is done.
Wiltse To Speak
Mr. Wiltse will.address the Law-z
yers' Liberal Club meeting tonight in
the Law Club, officers of the organi-
zation announced.
Louis Falstreaux, local strike chair-I
man, said yesterday that the $111.45
cleared at the strike benefit dance(
Saturday, March 12, was distributedI
among the striking union members
yesterday.
The charge, originally filed by
union members, on the basis of which
the NLRB issued its complaint, come
under the "unfair labor practices"
defined in the Wagner Act. The
union is also requesting certification
as representing a majority of com-
posing room employes, which would
entitle the ITU to act as exclusive

A telegram to Secretary of State
Cordell Hull urging him to use all
possible means to secure the release
of Ralph Neafus, '36F&C, imprisoned
by rebel forces in Spain, and a cable-

gram, appealing to Franco to give him
all consideration as a prisoner of war,
were sent last night by the Progres-
sive Club following their meeting at
the Union.
A third message was sent to Neafus
1 assuring him of the support of the
Club.
Neafus was the traditiQnal college
f student whose sense of fair play led
him to volunteer for Spain, Rev. H. P.
Marley, stated at the meeting. He
was a hard working, unassuming, sin-

WASHINGTON, March 22.-(/P)--
President Roosevelt summarily dis-
missed Chairman Arthur S. Morgan
of TVA from office today, precipitat-
ing what many believed would be a
bitter controversy in the courts and
in Congress.
For Morgan, long engaged in a,
guerrilla warfare with other directors
of the public power agency, was ready
to resist the Chief Executive's order,
and critics of TVA at the Capitol
were eager to bare the agency's in-
nermost secrets in a congressional
investigation.
Mr. Roosevelt elevated Vice-Chair-
man Harcourt A. Morgan to the
chairmanship. He has aligned him-
self with Director David E. Lilien-
thal in opposing the policies of
Chairman Morgan. In informed
sources, it was said that the vacancy
on the board might be filled tomor'-
row, possibly by the appointment of
James L. Fly, now TVA's general)
counsel.
Even before receiving the Presi-
dent's message of removal, however,
legislators were quick to praise or
blame the President tonight. Sen-
ator Bridges (Rep., N.H.) said the
dismissal was an act of "the typical
dictator," while Speaker Bankhead
declared it was "thoroughly justi-
fied,"

Wanted: One publicity stunt.
Wracking their brains for an idea
that would garner them space pub-
licizing their Spring Pop Concert at
Hill Auditorium tomorrow night. the
Glee Club finally hit upon something
really good. Three judges would de-
cide whether the Glee Club or Band
had the most sex appeal, musical abil-
ity and showmanship.
Marcia Connell, '39, promised to
judge sex appeal; William Lichten-
wanger, Grad., Daily music critic,
would judge the musical values and
Gerry Hoag, local theatre manager,
was to judge showmanship, Every-
thing was swell,
But late yesterday objections were
raised. The stunt could not comie off,
a high authority declared. So the
Glee Club, high and dry, wants an-
other quick. Those with suggestions
are to call Jack Collins, 39E, at the
Sigma Chi fraternity.
Beginning at 8:15 p.m. at Hill Au-
ditorium the Glee Club's concert will
be free. Especially planned for stu-r
dents, it will feature "A Michigan
Kaleidoscope." A number of other
high-lights will be presented.
