Five plays will be presented this

tie," will appear. Tonio Selwart and
Doris Dalton, who have appeared In
pevious seasons, will also be on hand.
The season will open with Sidney
IMoward's satire, "The Ghost of
Yankee Doodle," which was produced

U A W Secretary Denies
That Union Dues Drive
Caused Fisher Closing
Contract Breach Is
Charged By Union
Approximately 10,500 workers were
affected yesterday by strikes that
closed the Fisher Body plant of Gen-
eral Motors in Flint, the Buick as-
sembly line in the same city and three
firms in the Detroit area, according
to the Associated Press.
Charges that the shutdown of the
Fisher Body plant was caused by a
dues-collecting drive of the Flint
local of the United Automobile Work-
ers were denied by Jerry Aldred, sec-
retary of the local, who pointed out
that 3,500 men went through the
picket line around the factory and
that "the company produced for two
hours, so obviously there must have
been enough men in the plant."
The picket line around the plant
stopped all workers and some were
sent home when they refused to pay
dues. Aldred said the drive was suc-
cessful from a dues collection stand-
point and that many workers joined
the union for the first time. Soon
after the picket line formed the com-
pany shut down the plant and sent
approximately 3,700 men home with
instructions to return at 7 a.m. today.
The closing of the Fisher plant,
which supplies automobile bodies to.
the Buick division of General Motors,
brought shutdown of the Buick as-
sembly line. Twelve hundred men
were sent home.
Three hundred men, charging that
the Peninsula Metal Products Cor-
poration management had failed to
abide by a contact with the UAW,
staged a sit-down strike at the plant
in Hamtramck.
Officials of the Detroit Moulding
Company claimed that a UAW "fly-
ing squadron" ejected a paint shop
employee and a superintendent. The
paint shop was closed and 250 men
left following the alleged incident.
Thousands walked in Columbus, O.
when street car and motor bus oper-
ators failed to settle their strike.
At the same time Canada's first
major Great Lakes strike ended with
an agreement between seven big ship-
ping companies and the Canadian
seamen's union.

Major Offensive Push

Japaniese Positions
SHANGHAI, April 19.-(Tuesday).
-(/P)-Chinese military leaders re-
ported today the recapture of a 20-
mile stretch of the Grand Canal in
the second setback to the Japanese
within 24 hours.
SHANGHAI, April 19-(Tuesday)
-(P)-Chinese reported today they
had given the Japanese another de-,
feat in southern Shantung by re-
capturing Hangchwang spearhead of
the Japanese southward drive toward
Hangchwang, at the junction of the
Tientsin-Pukow railway and the,
Grand Canal 27 miles north of Su-
chow, has been the scene of bitter
fighting since the Japanese occu-
pied it a month ago. It is 32 miles
northeast of Taierhchwang where the
Japanese suffered an overwhelming
defeat April 6.
This development came as the Jap-
anese navy was reported preparing
to throw its support behind the new
Shantung drive which is expected
to determine the success or failure
of the invasion.
Japs Plan Air Attack
Foreign travelers arriving in
Shanghai said they had seen Jap-
anese aircraft carriers stationed at
various points along the Shantung
From these carriers, it was pre-
sumed, mass warplane attacks will be
launched into the interior to cover
the advance of the reinforced Jap-
anese army, estimated to have as
many as half a million men.
Further evidence that the Japanese
are concentrating all efforts to re-
venge their defeats was seen in the
fact that they have withdrawn all
troops from large areas in Shansi
and North Honan to be used in the
new Shantung offensive.
Recruits Needed
While both sides waited reinforce-
ments for the big battle, fierce fight-
ing continued over the 60-mile front
in southern Shantung.
At Lini, 80 miles northeast of Su-
chow, the opposing armies were
locked in a crucial battle. Fresh
Japanese troops attacked the Chinese
defense lines.
Foreign observers predicted that
this engagement might develop into
the biggest conflict of the nine-
month-old war, since Lini is the first
major objective of the new Japanese
advance down the Eastern Shantung
Japanese said that 1,700 Chinese
troops had landed on the north shore
of the Yangtze River, almost oppo-
site Nanking.
A Hongkong dispatch said that 250
civilians were killed and more than
300 injured Sunday in a Japanese
air raid on Canton and vicinity.
Lovett To Address
A nti-war Meeting
Robert Morss Lovett, vice-president
of the American League for Peace
and Democracy and well known pro-
fesgor at the University of Chicago
was selected as one of three speakers
for the strike against war to be held
April 27 at a meeting of the United

Peace Committee last night at Lane
Joseph Mattes, '38, managing edi-
tor of the Daily, was chosen as stu-
dent speaker for the strike with
Clarence Kressin, '38, president of the
Student Religious Association as al-
ternate. Governor Murphy has been
invited to talk but has not yet sent
his reply to the group.
An open forum at which all issues
pertinent to peace will be discussed
is planned by the Peace Committee
for some time after the strike. A
special meeting of this organization

An lo-Italian Pact

PARIS, April 18.-(A)-France's
"strong man" Government worked
today toward an agreement with Italy
which Right-Wing leaders thought
might lead to a real settlement with
Germany and possible abandonment
of the Franco-Soviet pact.
The Left opposition, whose ardor
has been dampened since the collapse
of Socialist Leon Blum's cabinet April
8, meanwhile asserted a French-Ital-
ian pact would be "useless except to
Il Duce."
Talk of a settlement with Germany,
it said, was a "surrender."
The key to France's diplomacy
however was in the hands of Premier
Edouard Daladier, the man who
joined Blum in 1936 to form the Peo-
ple's Front Union of Leftist parties
and then gained such popularity by
his building up of national defense

Judge Sample.
George Meader, attorney for the
Ann Arbor Press which applied for
the injunction restraining the NLRB,
said that the NLRB officers were ex-
ceeding their authority because the
company was not engaged in inter-
state commerce. He cited decisions
to support his statement that the
fact that a federal officer is involved
is not sufficient grounds to deny the
court jurisdiction to hear and de-
termine the controversy or to grant
or deny the relief asked.
Mr. Meader further argued that

BERLIN, April 18.-(P)--Whatever
misgivings may have existed in Ger-
many that an Anglo-Italian accord
might weaken the Rome-Berlin axis
have vanished, at least outwardly, in
view of Italy's solemn assurances that'
the Axis would continue to function
with undiminished strength.
German officials after watching the
Rome negotiations with great anxiety
now see reasons for rejoicing.
First, they see in the accord a new
justification of Reichsfuehrer Hitler's
thesis that direct negotiations be-
tween two nations are better than
multilateral pacts,
They also feel that Prime Minister
Neville Chamberlmin, encouraged by
his Italian success, now is likely to
press for an Anglo-German arrange-
ment. Hitler has never made any
secret of the fact that he regards
friendship with Great Britain the
most important of his foreign po-
litical objectives.
