Regents' Ruling
It was at that time that they
established a rule that deans, direc-

might, after a certain period of years,
be relieved from administrative duties
and appointed to distinguished pro-
fessorships in their special fields.
Dr. Sadler's professorship is named

City's ProblemStill Exists,
Fiske Warns; Continued
Correction Is Essential
Rating Is Planned
For Eating Houses
Closely following a series of Daily
articles denouncing unsanitary con-
ditions in Ann Arbor restaurants, an
investigation of more than 30 eating
places has disclosed a "marked up-
swing in sanitation standards."
Franklin Fiske, city health engineer,
announced yesterday.
While gratifying, such improve-
ment by no means ends the city's
problem, he said. "Continued effort
and correction is needed."
Publicity accorded such abuses in
the press appears directly responsible
for improved standards, continued
Fiske, who said that the city health
officials had received a number of
telephone calls from restaurant own-
rs admitting infractions of the san-
itary code and offering to correct
Several places will install, in the
near future, the new equipment which
the health department has been ad-
'vocating for a considerable time.
Moreover, he continued, there was a
marked improvement in places which
had formerly been careless in clean-
ing silverware and glasses.
Care on the part of patrons in in-
sisting upon clean utensils seems to
have had results. Emphasizing the
attitude of students, Fiske said that
no other method is as effective in pro-
moting a cleanup as returning dirty

NLRB Ruling
Curbs Scope Of
CIO Demands
Board's Decision To Make
Possible 3 AFL Unions
In Illinois Steel Industry,
ST. LOUIS, Oct. 6.-(A)-In a de-
cision apparently limiting the scope
of the Committee for Industrial Or-
ganization, the National Labor Re-
lations Board ruled today a minority
craft union may be a bargaining
agent for workers within its jurisdic-
tion in a plant where the majority
of the employes are members of an
industrial union.
The effect of the ruling in the case
in which the Board acted was to make
it possible for three American Fed-
eration of Labor Unions to obtain
recognition as collective bargaining
agents at the Commonwealth Plant
of the General Steel Castings Corpor-
ation in Granite City, Ill., where an
overwhelming majority of the work-
ers belong to a CIO affiliate.

at Washington and announced at

89,620 Voters
Carry Hopes Of
CIO In Detroit
O'Brien, CIO Candidate,
Expresses Confidence In
Gaining AF Of L Support
DETROIT, Oct. 6.-(P)-The Com-
mittee for Industrial Organization's
hopes for gaining control of Detroit's
non-partisan city government rested
tonight on success of it sefforts to
corral most of the 89,620 voters who
supported losing mayoralty candi-
dates in Tuesday's primary.
Patrick H. O'Brien, CIO-endorsed
nominee, will contest in the election
Nov. 2 against Richard W. Reading,
whom he trailed by more than 38,000
votes in the primary.
In its first direct political effort,
the CIO succeeded in nominating
O'Brien over John W. Smith, city
council president who had endorse-
ment of the American Federation of
Labor, and in naming its five can-
didates for the council (a nine-mem-
ber body) to places on the November
ballot. The AFL endorsed six incum-
bent councilmen who led the CIO
candidates in Tuesday's record pri-
mary vote of nearly 327,000.
Results in the mayoralty race
showed: Reading, 137,984 votes;
O'Brien, 99,129; Smith, 68,827; Clar-
ence J. McLeod, 18,542; Ralph A.
Philbrook, 1,251.
O'Brien leaders expressed belief
that despite the CIO-AFL clash, the
Labor support given Smith would be
turned to O'Brien Nov. 2. The Read-
ing group pointed out that Reading,
who received support from "conserv-
ative" elements Tuesday, was a for-
mer Typographical Union man who
still holds a non-paying membership

9-Power Treaty, Kellogg
Pact Are Cited By State
Department's Message
Conclusion Accords
With League Stand
WASHINGTON, Oct. 6.-(P)-The
State Department tonight formally
condemned Japan for waging war
against China.
Closely following today's action of
the League of Nations, the depart-
ment issued a statement asserting:
"In the light of the unfolding de-
velopments of the Far East the Gov-
,rnment of. the United States has
been forced to the conclusion that the
action of Japan in China is incon-
sistent with the principles which
should govern the relationships be-
tween nations and is contrary to the
provisions of the Nine Power Treaty
of Feb. 6, 1922, regarding principles
and policies to be followed in matters
concerning China, and to those of the
Kellogg-Briand pact of Aug. 27, 1928.
"Thus the conclusions of this gov-
ernment with respect to the forego-
ing are in general accord with those
of the Assembly of the League of Na-
tions." ,
By its action the State Department
moved swiftly to put into practical
force the speech made yesterday at
Chicago by President Roosevelt in
which he called 'for "concerted" in-
ternational efforts to restore world
peace. It left no doubt that the Unit-
ed States intends to collaborate with
the League of Nations toward this
end to the limit of its ability.
Italy Backs Japan
ROME, Oct. 7.-(Thursday)-(A)-
American condemnation of Japan as
a treaty violator in China today fell
sharply athwart an Italian tendency
to justify Japanese activity.
Reliable sources reported that
weeks ago the Fascist press was in-
structed to play up the Japanese side
of the Sino-Japanese conflict,
Observers said the explanation was
that Fascists see Soviet Russia behind
Fuller Urges
More Interest
In Real World
University students must take
an active part in their real world,-the
campus/the community, the nation
and the international scene, Prof.
Richard C. Fuller of the sociology
department told 200 persons at the
Progressive Club's meeting last night
in the Union,
Rejecting the "conventional defi-
nition of a college student as a unique
animal spending four years in an ar-
tificial atmosphere of intellectual in-
cubation," Professor Fuller endorsed
a "militant attitude" on the part of
students in facing social and econom-
ic problems.
A motion was passed by the mem-
bership of the club to cooperate with
the American Student Union chapter
at Wayne University in the calling
of a state-wide congress of liberal
Tuure Tenander, '38, associate edi-
tor of The Daily, was chairman of the
meeting. He outlined the organiza-
tion's platform.

The fugue is an old form of musical
