DETROIT, April 4.-(IP)-Represen-
tatives of the Consumers Power Co.1
and the CIO Utility Workers Organ-
izing Committee signed an agreement
tonight formally ending the strike
which the union began last Friday
night. Gov. Frank Murphy led all
The last obstacle in the way of set-

the Utilities Workers Organizing
Committee had controlled plants in
four large cities after ousting super-
iors Friday night, was removed with
the evacuation of a briefly rebellious
union group at Flint tonight.
A four months extension to the
UWOC's previous agreement with the
company, which expired last Friday,
and promise of a National Labor Re-
lations' oard elections within 60 days
among three rival unions were com-
bined in the final settlement.
Dispute between the unions over
majority memberships in plants serv-
ing 2,000,000 customers were a major
problem in negotiations. Both the In-
ternational Brotherhood of Electrical
Workers (AFL) and the Independent
Power .Workers Association claimma-

The pact signed by Dan E. Karn,
yice-president and general manager
of Consumers Power, and by Albert
Stronkus, natiopal director for the
UWOC, and other union officials, ex-;

The only other provision stipulates
an employe's wages may be changed
should he De promoted or demoted
during the remaining life of the
agreement. Otherwise, wages shall
remain as before.
All during the strike consumers
received regular service from the'
plants, which strikers maintained by
themselves with the aid of a load dis-
patcher's directions.
Student Housng
Poll Suggested
By Prof. Ratcliff
To insure the success of the present
housing investigation, one of its -ma-
jor lines of activity should be to de-
termine definitely how good or bad
student rooming conditions actually
are in Ann Arbor, according to Prof.
Richard U. Ratcliff, of the business
administration school, and formerly
economist for the Federal Housing
Professor Ratcliff believes that this
objective can best be accomplished
by a sample poll He suggests that
questionnaires be distributed to ap-
proximately 1.000 students, possibly
'through the student organization in-
terested, with questions on the size of
the rooms, the number of windows in
the room, tke number of students to
each bathroom, the number of stu-
dents in each house.
Then, he recommends that the sur-
vey try to ascertain how rapidly and
to what extent single family dwell-
ings are converted into rooming
houses. He also believes that it
should be determined how easily
rooming houses, when the demand
has fallen off or other external con-
ditions make it unprofitable to con-
tinue as such, are converted back

again into single family dwellings.
All these questions, when properly
answered should point to a solution
of any undesirable factors revealedl
in the investigation, Professor Rat-
cliff declared.

This book, they say, will be ready
for distribution May 15. That is the
message of the pamphlets which lit-
tered the campus yesterday, and are
apt to go right on doing the same
thing for some time yet.
Irving S. Matthews, '38, business
manager, says the salient factor in
the pamphlet is to be found in the
line which tells that the price of the
book will go up from $4.50 to $5.00
April 8. The book? Oh yes, it's the

Mrs. F. N. Haun, secretary of the1

concerned there is no question of
high rents, for most of the land-
ladies have trouble making both ends
meet. We can afford to give no better
accommodations at the present rents;
and going to such a hearing simply
brings publicity where it is best to
have none. Students have the op-
portunity to move if they are not
Calls Reports Biased
At the same time Mrs. Haun1
charged that the Daily treatment of1
landladies' problems had been biased
and unsympathetic and deplored the,
spreading of details of rooming ques-
tions throughout the State.
An attempt is being made to get
all interested groups together in an
impartial search for the facts, Allan
Braun, '40, declared. "The chairman
f the Senate Committee on Student
Housing's invitation to the Landladies
League to represent the viewpoint of
the group that has been consistently
under fire was given in good faith
and it is too bad that the association;
cannot see it in that light.
"A knowledge of the landladies'
problems is of obvious importance in
any estimate of housing conditions
and their problems will be reviewed
despite their refusal to appear."
The results of the closed confer-
ence with Dean Bursley and Dean
Olmstead held yesterday outlining
University policy toward rooming
houses will be disclosed at the Sen-
ate hearing, Braun said.
At the same time Dean Marion
Lloyd, Dr. Warren E. Forsythe, di-
rector of the Health Service, Prof.
John F. Shepard of the psychology
department and Dr. Edward W.
Blakeman, student religious director,
will be questioned when the se'nate
meets as a Committee of the Whole
to hear testimony.
The cumulative results of a poll
covering over 40 campuses through-
out the nation will be presented in

yesterday as the Spanish Insurgents
cut off Catalonia from the rest of
Government Spain including Valen-
cia and Madrid, and Japanese troops
threatened the vital Lunghai railway
near the strategic city of Suchow.
In sight of the Mediterranean on
the south and touching the French
borders on the north, Insurgent
armies began closing the jaws of a
giant trap about Catalonia, seat of
the Spanish governnent. While the
center columns swept past conquered

strongest of Catalan defenses, other
corps on a widely extended flank pur-
sued Government troops toward the

The United Peace Council last
night voted to change the proposed
name of the peace rally scheduled for
April 27 from "Peace Demonstration"

It was the second time the question
of the name of the rally had been
discussed and voted upon, the Com-
mittee reversing its previous decision
in the count last night. Last year and
the year before the word "demonstra-
tion" was used. The word "strike,"
it was pointed out, however, is the
customary term employed on other
campuses for the rally.
An Executive Committee was elect-
ed, consisting of Clarence Kresin, '38,
of the Student Religious Association;
Emily Morgan., '38, of the Girls' Co-
operative House; Joseph Gies, '39 of
the Daily; Daniel Gluck. '40L, of the

President Ruthven Visits
University Of California
President Alexander G. Ruthverr
arrived inBerkelev. Calif..vetprdan

ed States, Dr. Oskar Morgenstern,
Austrian economist, declared yester-
day in a University lecture.
Dr. Morgenstern also praised the
achievements of the League of Na-
tions in building means for progres-
sive work in the social sciences and
asked that in valuing the work of the
League, its contributions in this line
be fully considered.
The advantages offered by America
to the study of the -social sciences,
Dr. Morgenstern said, are complete
freedom and facilities for objective
study of the sciences, including ec-
onomics. sociologv. and political sci-!

In many countries political influ-
ences have arisen, he said, that give
distortion to the material and pur-
poses of the studies in the social sci-
ence fields, while in other cases the
scholars have depended too much on
metaphsics, mathematical formulae,
and "rash conclusions" in setting up
theories. Scientists who have had
to go back to make new approaches
to old problems and theories, he said,
have not been able to go forward, in
their contributions to their fields.
The League is the outstanding or-
ganization at present in the develop-
ment of scholarly approach in the so-
cial sciences, Dr. Morgenstern de-
clared. At present it is carrying on
a study of fiscal policies in relation
to the business cycle, he said, in which
