Ann Arbor


Policies Indicted
In NLRB Decision

Intermediate Report Gives
Strikers Decisive Gains;
Company Union Ousted
Right To Bargain
Collectively Upheld

A stinging indictment of the labor
policies of the Ann Arbor Press and
recommendations to the company to
cease interfering with employes' right
to join the International Typograph-
ical Union' were contained iri the
Intermediate Report, released yester-
day, of Frank Bloom, trial' examiner
for the National Labor Relations
Bloom ordered the management to:
(1.) Offer reinstatement to six
striking employes with back pay
(amounting to approximately $4,000)
less earnings, since they were laid off
for union activity last February.
(2.) Disestablish the Independent
Association of Ann Arbor Press Em-
ployees, Inc., which Bloom found to
be :domninated by the company and
formed to comply with the terms of
a Michigan statute relating to firms
doing state printing.
n(3.) Bargain collectively upon re-
quest with local No. 154 of the Inter-
national Typographical Union (ITU)
as the exclusive bargaining agent of
the composing room of the plant.
(4.) Offer reinstatement to 13
employes who went out on strike Feb.
19, dismissing, if necessary, persons
hired since the strike to perform their
(5.) Post immediately in the plant
for 30 days notices that the company
no longer recognizes and has dises-
tablished the Independent Associa-
% tionĀ° and will bargain with the rMU.
(6.) Notify the labor board within
10 days of the manner in which the
company has complied with the or-
Scompany has 10 days in which
to ask for the privilege of oral argu-
ment in Washington on the report-
the opportunity the Board is extend-
ing as a result of a recent Supreme
Court decision on procedure in the
Kansas City rate case.
If the company does not express a
willingness to comply within 10 days,
the examiner recommended that the
three-man national board issue an
order requiring the management to
comply. Further refusal to comply
with. the final Board order means
that the NLRB will petition a federal
Circuit Court of Appeals for a cease
and desist order-refusal to comply

Canadians May
Oppose Treaty,

Senator Declares Ottawa
Will Not Give Approval
To Waterway Scheme
WASHINGTON, June 1.--(.)-
Senator Pittman (Dem., Nev.), chair-
man of the Senate Foreign Relations'
Committee, predicted today that the
"real objection" to the proposed St.
Lawrence Waterway Treaty would
come from Canada.
Secretary Hull made public yester-
day a propoEgd agreement between
this country and the neighboring Do-
minion under which the Great Lakes
area would obtain a shipping outlet
to the Atlantic Ocean through the
St. Lawrence River. The treaty also
provides for extensive power develop-
The United States Senate refused
by 13 votes in 1934 to ratify a water-_
way treaty negotiated by the two
governments. Many senators who op-
posed the treaty said it would work
economic hardship on the states they
Pittman said he believed many of
these sectional objections had been
eliminated by the new treaty, but he
expressed anxiety lest the State De-
partment's newest proposal be less
cordially, received by the Ontario and
Dominion governments.
The Senator indicated doubt that
the Liberal Ottawa Government of
Mackenzie King would be as friendly
to the waterway as the Conservative
administration it succeeded.

Detroit ,CIo
Plans March
To City Hall
Strike Committee Cancels
Rally As 90 0 Police
Guard Brass Company
City Council Rejects
Petition For Hearing
DETROIT, June L.-00)-The De-
troit committee for Industrial Or-
ganization Strike Committee today
cancelled one scheduled demonstra-
tion but immediately launched plns
for another-a march on tie City
Hall at 10 a.m. Friday.
The rally that was deferred indefi-
nitely was scheduled for this after-
noon at the American Brass Co.
plant, scene of rioting in which 63
persons were injured last Thursday.
A detachment of 900 policemen
guarded the plant yesterday morn-
ing and afternoon but only eight
pickets appeared, the number per-
mitted under a Circuit Court in-
Junction granted the company.
Spokesmen for the Mine, Mill &
Smelter Workers Union (CIO) said
they would-continue to abide by the
court order which allows four pickets
at each of the twd entrances.
Announcement of the march on
City (all came after the City!Council
today rejected by a 4 to 3 vote the
CIO's, petition for a hearing of
oharges that its members were beaten
"by police to help Wal Street beat
down wages." The dispute at the

Other major developments on the
Detroit labor front today included:
(1) A group of pickets stopped
employes of the Gear and Axle plant
of the General Motors Corp. Chev-
rolet bivision when they reported for
work, requiring them to show their
United Automobile Workers (CIO)
dues cards,,
2. The CIO expressed disapproval
of a proposed ordinance suggested by
Mayor Richard Reading that would
create an "industrial peace board" to
which labor and management could
take their grievances. b
The CIO committee asserted that
Mayor Reading's peace plan con-
tained a number of "jokers." The
principal objection to the plan, the
committee said, was a clause that
provides for 24 members on the
board. Only six of the 24 would
be labor representatives, the CIO
pointed out in making its objection,
claiming that the plan is "heavily
loaded in favor of the employers."

Beats It Out;

Paj ama Serenade-spontaneous In-

last night as 50 lusty Allen-Rumsey
troubadors, swathed in lurid nighties

girls' dormitories' in the first an-
nual pre-exam warm-up.
Marching in single file, the boys
tramped through the Michigan Union
and paraded up State Street-virtual-
ly a walking advertisement for "Es-
quire." Assemblying between Betsy
Barbour and Helen Newberry, they
yodeled a few Michigan songs and
swung one or two barroom ditties
'mid interspersed jeers and cheers
from the silhouetted figures dotting
the windows.
As the last echoes of "Good Night

German Press
Again Attacks
Czech Incident

Cafe Brawl In
Border Town
Vigorous Nazi


BERLIN, June 1.-(P)-The Ger-
man press attacked Czechoslovakia
anew tonight over a "provocative" in-
cident at the troubled frontier town
of Eger.
Eger, on Czechoslovakia's extreme
Western tip where the country juts,
far into Germany, was the scene of
a cafe brawl last night in which two
Sudeten Germans were wounded
when a Czechoslovak army sergeant
fired his revolver.
Some Nazi quarters responded with
a bitter charge of "continued mon-
strous Czech provocations," and the
Berlin press referred to the "intol-
erable situation" of the Sudeten Ger-
mans, a 3,500,000 German minority
living in Czechoslovakia along the
German border.
In other quarters, however, the
episode, one of a long series involv-
ing Czechoslovaks and Sudeten Ger-
mans in recent weeks, was viewed
more calmly and was minimized as
an act of "a drunken Czech."
The Berlin newspaper Nachtaus-
gabe, taking a belligerent view of the
new Eger incident, warned "London,
Paris, and Praha to note that we are
keeping a record of every incident,
every murder, every shooting, every
provocation, and every border viola-
tion, and that some day we will pre-
sent a bill of responsibility to those
who, whether in Praha or other cap-
itals, have assumed command of the
Rare Volumes
Exhibi-ted Here
Library Displays Books
Of Colonial America
In conjunction with the annual con-
vention of the Federated Garden
Clubs of Michigan, the William L.
Clements Library is displaying rare
books and maps dealing with early
investigations of the natural history
of North America.
The exhibit includes Thomas Har-
ot's "A Briefe and True Report of
the New Found Land of Virginia"
published in London in 1588, which

of the country south of the Potomac.
This volume has been translated into
French and German, but there are
only five copies of the original pub-
lication left in the United States.
On display also are maps of New
France and New Spain drawn by
Champlain and Hernandez in the
early 17th century; some by John
Mitchell, one of the outstanding car-
tographers of colonial America, whose
maps were accepted as the basis for
the Webster-Ashburton Treaty; seed
catalogs published in 1938; early dic-
tionaries on the ways and metho is of
farming; and the reports of the first
natural history survey in Michigan.

Senate Tacks
Farmers' Aid
To Relief Bill
Amendment Passed After
Hour's Debate Despite
President's Opposition
Norris Leads Fight
AgainstREA Cut
WASHINGTON, June 1.-()-The
Senate tacked $212,000,000' for farm
benefits onto the House-approved Re-
lief Bill tonight.
The amendment, submitted by Sen-
ator Russell (Dem., Ga.) was ap-
proved after an hour's debate despite
arguments that taxes should have
been provided to meet the payments.
Earlier, President Roosevelt had
indicated his opposition to ear-mark-
ing funds in the Relief Bill for spe-
cific purposes. Writing to Senator
Adams (Dem., Colo.), the Executive
urged that no restrictions be includ-
ed to prevent the selection of projects
which could be undertaken "most
Holding its first night session on
the $3,247,000,000 spending-lending
bill, the Senate quickly disposed of
numerous amendments recommend-
ed by its appropriations Committee.
A committee suggestion that the
House-approved $100,000,000 alloca-
tion for the Rural Electrification Ad-
ministration be whittled to $25,000,-
000 was rejected. Senator Norris
(nd., Neb), "father" of the TVA, led
a fight against the reduction._
The Russell Farm Benefits Amend-
ment, revised slightly from the form
in which it was approved by the
Appropriations Committee, provides
payments of up to two cents a pound
for cotton, ten cents a bushel for
wheat, five cents a bushel for corn,
one cent a pound for tobacco and
one-fourth of one cent a pound for
Substitute proposals offered by
Senator Shipstead (FL., Mia.) Gil-
lette (Dem., Iowa) and Pope (Dem.,
Idaho) were rejected.
Senator Vandenberg (Rep., Mich.)
criticized the Senate for rejecting
taxes for additiona farm benefits
when the tax- revision measure was
under consideration, and then, later,
voting "blithely, blindly and smugly"
to appropriate the money.

Note To Tokyo Officials
Says American Rights
In China Are Violated
WASHINGTON, June 1.-WA)--Ja-
pan is violating American rights 'in
China by refusing to evacuate Amer-
ican properties 'and allow our citizens
to return to them, Secretary of State
Hull told the Tokyo Government to-
day in a strongly-worded note.
The United States demanded that
Japan turn back to their American
owners the $1,000,000 University of
Shanghai and other properties now
occupied by Japanese troops.
This government expressed its"in-
creasing concern" at Japan's refusal
to let American businessmen and
missionaries return to the posts in
coastal and inland 'cities they for-
merly occupied.
Secretary Hull regarded as flimsy
Japan's excuse that "peace and order
have not been sufficiently restored."
He questioned it by calling Japan's
attention to "the fact that Japanese
civilians are freely permitted to go
into and reside in such areas-as,
for example, at Nanking where some
800 Japanese nationals, including ,a
substantial number of women and
children, are reported to be in resi-
