Ann Arbor Press Brings
Suit Against State Law
Standardizing Work
Cornpany Eminploye
Held After Violencee
The University of Michigan was
yesterday drawn indirectly into the
labor difficulties besetting the Ann
Arbor Press when it was revealed that
the printing company had filed suit
challenging the constitutionality of a
state law setting up labor standards
for shops doing printing for state in-
stitutions.
If the law, passed last year and
known as the Union Label Bill, is up-
held., the Ann Arbor Press must sat-
isfy the following conditions if it is
to continue doing printing for the
University:
Must Pay Prevailing Wage
(1) mile with the secretary of
state a sworn statement that its em-
ployes are receiving the prevailing
wage rate and are working under con-
ditions prevalent in the locality in
which the work is produced, or
(2.) To put in effect a collective
bargaining agreement with a union
"in no way influenced or contiolled
by the management" and by gaining
the right to use the union label, which
would guarantee a wage prevalent in
the community.
Iicluded in state printing affected
by the court's decision are the Gar-
goyle, the Michiganensian and the
Michigan Technic.
The outcome of the company's suit.
may also affect the result of the strike
now' being waged against the coi-
pany by the Intrnational Typograph-.
ical Union.
Non-Striker Arrested
Th: first day o picketing ended
with the arrest of Chris Anderson,
1528 Golden St., a non-striking em-
ploye of the printing company, on a
warrant charging assault and battery.
He was charged with beginning a
fight with an ITU picket. Nicholas
Chamblin, another picket who at-
tempted to stop the fight, suffered an
ankle fracture when he was allegedly
kicked to the street.
Anderson was released on bond last
night and ordered to appear before
Justice Jay H. Payne at 9 a.m. Mon-.
day.
Emil Kuchar, president of the ITU
local, and Harold Hoffmneyer, secre-
tary, met in conference with Arthur
J. Wiltse and Horace G. Pettyman,
owners of the company. late yester-

Murphy Alarmed By Crisis
hI State Unemploymient
MT. CLEMENS, Feb. 19.-- W)-
Governor Murphy announced today
he would call a special session of the
Legislature unless the relief crisis was
relieved within the next three weeks.
The Governor said that whether
there will be a session depends on
the extent to which the WPA can
transfer unemployed men from direct
relief to WPA rolls, which to a large
measure rests on the speed with
which local communities can plan
WPA projects, and the amount of re-

employment by automobile manufac-
turers.
Heindicated that the Legislators
would be called to Lansing on or
about April 1 for the special session
should the relief crisis continue.

Benefits By Moisture '
CHICAGO, Feb. 19.-(W)-One of
the winter's worst snow storms struck
in six Middle Western States today,
but traffic hazards were balanced by1
benefits to the drouth stricken dust
bowl.
Five to 14 inches of snow fell in
Kansas, boosting wheat prospects.
The fall was measured at 14 to 18
inches in Central Missouri and eight
inches in Southeastern Iowa, The
storm reached near blizzard propor-
tions in the Lake Region of Northern
ilinois and Indiana. Southern Mich-
igan also was hit.
Many Missouri highways were
blocked by the heaviest snow in sev-
eral years. Motor and airplane traf-
fic was badly crippled elsewhere in
the storm area. The temperature
hovered between 15 and 30 degrees
above zero. Cd
Forecaster C. A. Donne said the
storm was moving eastward toward i
the Seaboard States where he pre-
dicted cold and snow would strike
tomorrow in the wake of rains.s

Wolverines Suffer Fourth
Loss In Five Conference
Starts; 6 Ties li Game
.Townsenid Is High
Scorer With .14
By BUD BENJAMIN
Michigan's lingering hopes for its
first Big Ten basketball title since '29
were convincingly buried in the Yost
Field House last night, when a
scrappy and alert Minnesota quintet
handed the Wolverines their fourth
Conference defeat in five games, 29
to 26.
Approximately 7,500 disappointed
fans saw the Gophers break the con-
test's sixth deadlock early in the sec-
ond stanza and forge to a lead which
they never relinquished, The teams
were knotted at 16 points at the half
way mark.
Flashing a fast breaking attack
which seldom subsided, the visitors
annexed their fifth straight Confer-
ence triumph to remain in the Big
Ten race after a poor start which
saw them lose their first three games.
Varsity Lacks Finesse; Power
The loss dropped Michigan to an
even .500 per cent at four games won
and lost. The Gophers, who were tied
with the Varsity in fourth place prior
to the game, have now won five and
lost three.
Michigan again lacked the finesse
and power of its early season game.
Time and again ,they missed set-ups
and tip-ins; their inaccuracy from
the forecourt once more gave the
opposition an opportunity to gang
up in the back and clog the offensive
lanes.
The Wolverines had previously
beaten the Gophers 31 to 16 in a
game, Jan, 16, at Minneapolis.
Harassed by determined Gopher
guarding, Michigan's brilliant John
Townsend nevertheless continued his
high scoring ways. His 14 points paced
both teams although six of them were
made from the foul line. Albeit Im-
pressive, Jake was still not in top
form, missing numerous shots from
his favorite inside position.
Offensively the visitors used a rapid
fire passing attack while setting up
for an opening in the backcourt. Yet
without the long shot accuracy of
Paul Maki, an aggressive junior
guard, they would have been lost.
Maki sank four long shots and a set-
up for 10 points, while Johnny Dick,
sub forward, added two baskets and
three fouls for second place honors.
Five Ties In First Half
Five ties featured the initial period,
and a three point Gopher lead was
the biggest margin of the stanza.
Maki's four baskets kept the visitors
in the thick of the fight, while Town-
send's pivot shot and tip-in along
with his three fouls helped put the
Wolverines on par at 16 all at half
time.
Jim Rae, lanky Wolverine center,
opened the second period with an
overhand flip from inside, but Maki's
fourth long tied it up again at 18
points. Dick whirled prettily in the
foul circle for two more Ghoper
points, and the visitors had the lead
they never lost.
Townsend was fouled by his eve-
ning's companion, Gordon Spear, and
made his charity toss, but Dick was
