In Farewell Move
FLORENCE, Italy, May 9.-(P)-
Adolph ditle tonight headed across
the Alps toward Germany, ending a
dramatic rsix-ay visit with his close
collaborator, 'Benito gussolinm.
The German Fuehrer's train pulled
out of Florence just at midnight (6
p.m. E.S.T.) to start for jrenner Pass,
the Alpine gateway to Italy, he
pledged his nation forever would con-
sider ,inviolate.
Mussolini told Hitler goodbye with
a surprise spectacle which rivalled all
the other grandiose events of his stay
in Italy.
As the Fascist and Nazi dictators
reached the railway station a barrage
of fireworks burst from the station
roof illuminating the sky for miles
Uniformed Children Sing
A chorus of 10,000 children, uni-
formed, and lined Tp row on row
against the nearby fountains, sang a
farewell to Hitler. Colored floodlights-
played on the square, bands played
and thousands of troops formed a
final honor guard for the departing

pleasure and bewilderment when the
fireworks shot up and the singing
It was Mussolini's final gesture be-
fore bidding him goodbye. Then Hit-
ler stepped aboard his 'special train
and headed for home.
The program in Florence in his
honor-was a crowded one. The last
event was a special opera perform-
ance at which he arrived a half ,an
hour late and left after the first act.
Civil Mobliation Ordered
The first civil moilization in Italy
since the Ethiopian war of 1935-36
was decreed in the city so all Flor-
entines could welcome the Nazi leader.
Premier Mussolini, who was at the
station in Rome when King Vittorio
Emanuele and Hitler exchanged fare-
wells, had dashed to Florence to re-
ceive the Fuehrer on his arrival.
Together they drove through his-
toric streets, lined with cheering Ital-
ians, to see the city's prized art.
Florence gave Hitler the warmest
reception since his arrival in Italy
and provided decorations which ri-
valled those of Rome and Naples in
beauty and originality.
The famous red fleur-de-lis emblem
of the city glistened in the sun be-
side Fascist and Nazi banners.

Aline MacMahon Likes Movies,
But The Stage Still Comes First

Star Of Drama Season'sd
Opening Play began Her
Career While In College
While making movies is interesting
work, it does not equal acting on the
.stage, in the estimation of AlineMac-
Mahon, who arrived here yesterday
for the Dramatic Season's "Ghost of
Yankee Doodle."
And Miss MacMahon ought to
know what she is talking about for
she has been in tlhe movies for six
years and" acted on the stage even
before she went to Barnard College,
where she starred with "Wigs and
Cues," the school's play .production
Miss MacMahon has appeared in
numerous moving pictures, including:
"One Way Passage," "Silver Dollar,"
"Five Star Final" with Edward G.

Robinson, "The World Changes," with
Paul Muni, and "Ali, Wilderness" with
Lionel Brrmoe
She has been rehearsing "The
Ghost of Yankee Doodle," in which
she is scheduled to appear next week

Miss MacMahon told of her pecul-
iarly delayed meeting with Miss Helen

Several members of Miss Arthur's

Ruthven Gives
His Support To
Camp Tag Day
Terms Enterprise One Of
'Genuine Social Import';
Drive Will BeMay 13
Giving support to student and cam-
pus groups which are organizing and
-backing the Fresh Air Camp Tag Day
on May 13, President Ruthven yester-
day expressed his interest -in tie
Camp and in the Tag Day project.
"The annual campaign on behalf
of the camp operated by the students
and the staff of the University of
Michigan,"' Dr. Ruthven stated, "'fur-
nishes an opportunity to contribute
to a project which has become close
to the hearts of the University com-
munity. The good which has been
accomplished through many years
of successful operation is difflult to
estimate, and those who contribute
to the support of the camp may be
assured that they are taking part
in an enterprise of genuine social im-
Cites Opportunities
Through its long association with
the University, he said, the Camp
has offorded students opportunities
for actual participation and coopera-
tion in a humanitarian project and
has been built up as an eapression of
student interest in contributing to
social needs.
Commenting upon the history of
the camp at Michigan, Dr. Ruthven
expressed approval of they change
from a voluntary student activity to
the plan adopted for this year of giv-
ing credit to counselors for summer
work in the School of Education and
the department of sociology. Found-
ed on the campus in 1919, the prop-
erty and affairs of the camp have
been administered since 1924 under
the Student Christian Association, the
functions of which are now cared for
by the Student Religious Association.
Service Lauded
"During 14 years of association,"
Dr. Ruthven said, "University men
from several fields of interest have
given faithfully their service to this
common project. University men have
served ever since the organization
of the camp as counselors, while
through the annual spring tag days,,
the faculty and student body as a
whole have participated in the work
of the carpp, raising a large share of
the funds for its support. This is one
of the first, and still one of the
very few, institutions of its kind sup-
ported by a University community."
On Tuesday the Student Senate
voted to "give wholehearted support
to the Tag Day," while the League
has made it an official women's proj-

NLRB Rules
Out Testimony.
In Press Case:
Examiner Reverses Order;
Plant Owner Threatens
'I'll Never Give In'
Details of a conference held in
April between the Ann Arbor Press
and striking Local No. 154 of the
Typographical Union went before the
National Labor Relations Board in
Washington yesterday, but testimony
on a similar meeting which took place
last Thursday was ruled out by Trial
Examiner Frank Bloom, according to
a special dispatch from the Associat-
ed Press to the Daily.
Reversing an'earlier decision to ad-
mit testimony on the conference held
in Washington, Bloom said he had
misunderstood the date of the dis-
puted hearing.
Arthur J. Wiltse, manager and co-
partner in the local printing plant,
said yesterday that if the Board's
decision is adverse to his interests,
"this. case may be in the courts for
a year or for 10 years- I'll never give
in." Wiltse said he expected to take
the stand today..
Louis Falstreaux, local ITU strike
chairman, testified that he was called
in April to discuss the dispute with
Wiltse and George Meader, Ann Arbor
Press attorney. Falstreaux said that
the management offered to put some
of the strikers back to work, but,
insisted on keeping certain men hired
when the strike began (Feb. 18), and
offered to allow the ITU to bargain
for its members only.

Returned To House For
ApprovalOf Changes
Highways To Share
In Appropriations
took the Senate less than three hours
today to discuss and approve the ex-
penditure of $1,104,000,000 in federal
funds for farm and highway pro-
The agricultural Appropriation Bill
which would provide this record sum
for use in the fiscal year beginniing
July 1, then was sent back to the
House for consideration of some $50,-
000,000 the Senate added to it.
Senator Russell (Dem., Ga.), who
steered the appropriation through the
Senaste, said differences with the
House probably would be adjusted by
a Joint Conference Committee.
Criticism of the size of the measure
came from Senator Vandenberg (Rep.,
Mich.), who said Government out-
lays for the farmer had increased
"six times in the last decade and
I am not sure that the' farmer is any
better off."
"The bill carries more money than
ever approved by the Senate but
we .must remember the government
is doing a lot more things for agri-
culture all the time," Senator Russell
commented after the measure won
approval without a record vote.
Few changes were made in the
measure as previously approved by,
the Senate Appropriations Committee.
The bill included $6,500,000 for the
Farm Credit Administration, inde-
pendent agency which makes loans
to farmers, and all the other funds
are to be expended by agencies under
the jurisdiction of Secretary Wallace.
The biggest item was $500,000,000
for benefit payments to farmers who
comply with the new crop control pro-
gram. This was $15,000,000 more than
approved by the House.

Ford Blocks
T6 Lift Case
Court Amends Previous
Rule; Case Records To
Be Included In Suit
Company's Counsel
Hails 'Ford Victory'
COVINGTON, Ky., May 9.-(P)--
The Ford Motor Co. blocked today
efforts of the National Labor Rela-
tions Board to withdraw from court
the record of its case against the
hfirm and question arose immediately
whether it also had halted the NLRB's
promised vacating of an order charg-
ing Wagner Act violations.
Amending its ruling of last Friday
-permitting the board to withdraw
the documents-the Sixth U.S. Cir-
cuit Court of Appeals directed that
the papers be made a part of the
Ford Company's suit to set aside
the contested order of last Dec. 22.
Several motions incident to the suit
are before the tribunal.
Attorney Is Jubilant
Ford chief counsel Frederick H.
Wood, of New York, described the
court's ruling as a "victory for Ford,"
and declared its effect would be to
prevent the NLRB from rescinding
the order which directed reinstate-
ment of 29 workers in the Michigan
plant, who were discharged for as-
serted union activity.
The next step, he said, would be
up to the Board. Previously he had
said in court however, that "if the
board tried to deprive the court of
jurisdiction by setting aside its order,
it would be in contempt of court."
Philip G. Phillips, Ninth Regional
Director for the NLRB, cited com-
ment by Judge C. C. Simons during,
the hearing that if the Board's order
were vacated, all questions (raised by
Ford) would be "academic," and de-
clared the board could rescind the
order, thus "eliminating certain is-
sues as to validity of the board's pro-
cedure." -

In Chicago, the Labor Board moved
to set aside its precedent-setting de-
cision against the Inland-Steel Cor-
poration-first employer directed to
sign a contract covering any collec-
tive bargaining agreement reached
with labor.
The Board announced that next
Thursday it would serve formal. no-
tice upon Inland attorneys that "un-
less sufficient cause to the contrary
is shown," it would "vacate and set
aside its findings and order for the
purpose of further proceedings be-
fore the board."

Leaders Point
Toward Early
To Seek Special Resolution
To Hurry Wage-Hour Act
For Speedy House Vote
Consult Roosevelt
On Pump-Priming
WASHINGTON, May 9.-(P)--Con-
gressional leaders cautiously talked of
an early-June adjournment today and
hopefully pointed their arrangements
to that end.
One principal factor of uncertainty
was offered by the Wage-Hour Bill
and to hurry that much-disputed
measure along, the leadership evolved
a program under which, if Rules Com-
mittee Republicans agree, the meas-
ure may be expedited by a week or
ten days.
Meanwhile the Senate, with, a min-
imum of debate, finally approved a
conference report on the compromise,
$5,000,000,000 Tax Bill, which re-
moves all but a remnant of the con-
troversial tax on undistributed cor-
porate profits. . Approval by , the
House, expected tomorrow or Wed-
nesday, will send the measure to the
White House.
The House schedule called also for
the beginning of debate on the Pres-
ident's $4,500,000,000 program for
combatting the depression with $4,-
500,000,000 out of Federal loans and
expenditures. The leadership looked
for passage by the 'end of the week.
After a fortnight of hearings the
Appropriations Committee introduced
the bill just. before adjournment to-
day. It proposed appropriations and
authorizations totaling $3,054,425,000.
The remainder of the $4,500,000,000
was previously cove'ed in authoriza-
tions for loans by the RVC, and ap-
propriations for road building and
the Civilian Conservation Corps.
The new bill contains $2,519,425,000
in actual appropriations. An author-'
ization of $500,000,000 for -public
works loans and $35,000,000 for the
.onstruction of federal buildings. The
outright appropriations include $1,-
250,000,000 for work relief and $965,-
000,000 for public works. Among
other items are '$175,000,000 for the
farm security administration and
$75,000,000 for the national youth ad-
ministration. s
Thinking in terms of adjournment,
the Democratic high command of
both the House and the Senate
talked the situation over with Pres-
ident Roosevelt, and a second White
House conference saw members of,
the appropriations committee and
those concerned with the. adminis-
tration of the spending-lending cam-
paign discussing that question with
the Chief Executive.
