Varsity Aggressive
- In Top-Notch Play
Little Burt "Bucko" Smith, as cool
as the Coliseum ice which he so vigor-<
ously patrolled last winter, scattered
10 hits and had plenty in the pinchesl
yesterday as Michigan's baseball team
whipped Western State Teachers Col,-
lege 6 to 3 at the Ferry Field diamond.c
Only in one inning-the eighth-
did diminutive Burt let down. In
that frame he yielded two hits andt
two walks, which, combined with a,
Michigan error, gave the Teachers alll
their runs. The remaining eight stan-
zas were goosegg affairs with Burtt
getting in and out of trouble witht
consummate ease.
Two Homers Do It
Burt ca thank a pair of forgotten1
men in the Wolverine batting order
for yesterday's win. With the bigr
Michigan guns silenced, Leo Beebe
and Pete Lisagor stepped out of hit-
ting obscurity to crack a pair of home
runs and personally account for four
of the local runs. That was all Burt
The Varsity apparently awoke with
a start .in yesterday's game to play
the brand of heads-up, aggressive ball
that had been so noticeably absent in
previous encounters. 'The only dam-
aging error came in the Teachers'
big eighth. The rest of the game
found the locals backing up Smith in
good style in one, of the top-notch
Wolverine performances of the year.
Smith Is Effectivel
Mixing up a good curve and anl
effective fast ball, Smith left 11 off
the enemy stranded on base, strck
out six, and walked but three. He
spread the 10 hitsover seven innings,
never allowing more than two in a
single frame,
Charley Pink led the Wolverine at-
tack with a double and two singlesj
in five trips. Lisagor, who smacked1
a homer and a single, was the only
other Wolverine to hit safely more'
than once.
George Timmerman, a right-hand-
ed curve ball specialist, started forj
the Teachers and allowed eight hits
in five and two-thirds innings. Bob
Cory relieved Iiim and yielded but
one safe blow in the remaining frames.i
Here's What Happened
Scoring summary:
Michigan, 4th: After Elmer Gedeon
had flied out, Lisagor singled to right.
Beebe scored Pete with his circuit
drive to left center. Burt Smith

Executive Board Assumes
Powers Of Individual
Union OnDiscipline
DETROIT, May 10.-OP)----Homer
Martin, confronted with factional dis-
putes in the United Automobile Work-
ers' union he heads, succeeded today
in centralizing in the executive board
punitive powers to deal with instigat-
ors of "wildcat" strikes.
The Martin-controlled board took
over, by resolution, the power prev-
iously exercised by local unions to
punish those responsible for unau-
thorized work stoppages.
Martin said the board would in-
vestigate three recent strikes and that
suspension or expulsion of UAW
leaders in them might result. The
three involved the Chevrolet small
parts plant at Bay City, Mich.; the
assembly line of the Packard Motor
Car Co. in Detroit; and eight De-
troit plants of the Bohn Aluminum
& Brass Corp.
An "authorized" strike requires a
two-thirds vote of the local union
members involved, and approval of
the international UAW officers. Sud-
den work stoppages have drawn com-
plaint from employers that the union
is unable to control its members.
The board's resolution condemned
unauthorized strikes as having "pen-
alized, without voice or vote, thou-
sands of workers directly and indi-
rectly affected by them." Martin said
members convicted by the board of
violating union strike procedure may
be suspended or expelled, or the board
may ask their employers to discharge
Martin said he had discussed to-
day's resolution, before submitting it
to the executive board.,

Laughter Lifts
7-Day Tension
At NLRB Trial
WASHINGTON, May 10.-(Spe-
ial to The Daily) -Laughter relieved
he tension of seven days of hearings
before a National Labor Relations
Board examiner in Washington when
Leigh McGee, union compositor, said
oday that he was hired in Indianap-
olis as a "strike-breaker" by the Ann
Arbor Press and that on his way to
Ann Arbor he persuaded the other
occupant of the back-seat, a non-
union man, to join the International
Typographical Union.
Professing to be a non-union work-
er, McGee answered an advertisement
n an Indianapolis newspaper and was
hired by Jack Harris, who is in
charge of the night shift in the com-
posing room of the printing plant.
Harold Strong, the other man hired
to replace striking union employees,
took out a 'union card immediately
upon his arrival in Ann Arbor.
Arthur J. Wiltse, manager and co-
partner in the Press, joined in the
aughter when McGee told of having
a Detroit waitress write a note to
other Press employees advising them
not to report for work one Saturday
night, because McGee and his friends
did not wish to return to Ann Arbor
at the time.
McGee said he gave the note, pur-
portedly from the management, to an,
employee to circulate. He offered his
testimony when an Ann Arbor Press
attorney submitted the. note to the
Trial Examiner and questioned Miss
Dimitra Caras, proof-readepr, con-
cerning the origin of the note.
Indications were that Wiltse would
take the stand tomorrow (Wednes-,
day) to present the management's
defense. The Ann Arbor Press isfac-
ing charges of unfair labor practices
brought by the ITU.
School Election
Bitterly Fought
Second Precinct Vetos All
Bills PassedBy First
One of the most bitterly fought
elections in Ann Arbor's history ended
yesterday with school district voters
defeating a proposed $270,000 bonds
issue fIor two new buildings when
second precinct returns snowed under
a first ward "yes" majority..
Purchase of a new school site in
the southeast section of the city and
an increase in the mml limitation to
pay for the bonds also lost out in the
exceptionally heavy voting.
On the school site proposition, the
first precinct voted favorably by a
498 to 420 majority. Second precinct
voters defeated the measure, how-
ever, 228 to 49.
On the bond issue, first precinct
voters voted "yes," 453 to 412. .Sec-
ond precinct voters again defeated
the measure, 217 to 47. On the mill
limitation increase, first precinct re-
turns were 483 to 435 in favor. Second
precinct voters were 227 to 51 against.

Student Senate
Told Of Poor
Gates And Greve Report
Opaque-Shaded Lamps
Result In Eye Strain
Improper lighting was the most
serious health problem uncovered by
an investigation into sanitation in.
women's residences on campus, Dr.
Lloyd Gates and Clifford Greve of
the public health department told the
Student Senate hearing on student
housing last night.
Dr. Gates _and- Mr. Oreeve began
their investigation three months ago
following a request by Dean Alice C.,
Lloyd. They spoke last night as part
of the second half of the Senate's
probe of housing conditions.
Dr. Gates said that a great part
of the lighting problem was the re-
sult of the widespread use of opaque
shaded study lamps which throw too
strong a light on the desk and leave'
the rest of the room in shadows. A,
great deal of. eye strain results from
this, he said; and many students are
forced to go to the health service for;
glasses which they otherwise would
not need. In many houses, Mr. Greve
pointed out, thie condition is compli-
cated by the poor natural lighting of
student rooms, resulting both from
insufficient window area and from
misplacement of desks in the rooms.
Moreover, he said, the investigation,
disclosed no correlation between poor
natural lighting and good artificial
lighting. Illumination ' Engineering
Society lamps were recommended to
replace the old-fashioned lamps, he
In other respects most of the houses
examined measured up fairly well to
predetermined standards, Dr. Gates
said. Living room and bathroom
lighting and cleanliness were found
to be generally good, although in
many cases humidifying was defi-
cient. Eighty per cent of the houses
had water pans in the furnace for
the purpose, which Dr. Gates called
inefficient, while 40 houses had no
humidifiers at all.

Freshmen from anl the various
schools and colleges of the University
will gather at the Island on Satur-
day, May 28, from 2 to 5 p.m. for
the annual Freshman Picnic, Janet
Homer, chairman of the affair, an-
nounced yesterday.
Declaring that plans for the see-
ond successive revival in two years
of the formerly traditional event are
well under way, Miss Homer an-
nounced the appointment of food,
publicity, and entertainment commit-
tees. Working on the food commit-
tee will be Mary Roger and Olga:

The feature of this year's entertain-
ment will be a baseball game with.
boys pitted against girls, Miss Homer
said. Other novelties she added will
include potato races, sack races, and
various other contests designed to
chase dignity.
Last year the class of 1940 staged

The Ann Arbor Dramatic Season,
which over a period of nine years,
has become a traditional theatre fes-
tival, will soon assume national and
international importance, comparable
to the seasons at Malvern and Strat-
ford-On-the-Avon in England and
the Salzburg festival in Germany, ac-
cording to recent predictions.
Prof. Kenneth Rowe of the Eng-
lish department stated the dramatic
season, as it was founded by Rober;t
Henderson nine years ago, was a
pioneer creation, and that there was
no other theatre work like it in the
country. A few years later summer
theatres sprang up all over the east,
and have since spread westward.
Unique features that make the

of university and civic life," Prof.
Rowe said, "it makes Ann Arbor a
much more vitally alive place in
which to live. With the addition of
the Michigan Repertory Players sum-
mer season following the regular pro-
fessional group, we have theatre for
three months of each year."
A balanced program should always
be presented, Professor Rowe said,
providing the community with Greek
plays, Shakespeare and modern
classics, besides the latest and best
Broadway shows.
Prof. Bennett Weaver also spoke
enthusiastically of the Dramatic Sea-
son, emphasizing its possibilities for
further growth and expansion. In
speaking of the Stratford Festival
Players, he pointed out that they pre-
