ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Oct.
14.-(P)-John L. Lewis, CIO
chairman, said tonight the strat-
egy conference of his leaders here
would reply tomorrow to a new
offer of the AFL to see a settle-
ment of their differences
Lewis spent several hours dis-
cussing with leaders the newest
proposal of the American Fed-
eration of Labor for a united
labor movement, but declined to
make a statement.
The AFL sent out a last minute
olive branch of peace to the rebel
CIO last night, just as the Federation
meeting in Denver, unanimously
elected William Green to his 13th
term as president, Associated Press
dispatches said.
CIO leaders, congregated 2,100
miles away in Atlantic City, received
the message in silence. The AFL sug-
gestedi in the telegram that repre-
sentatives of 'both groups meet "with-
out conditions or stipulations" to
work out a settlement of their differ-
ences. The Federation agreed to ex-
pand to a "reasonable" size its three-
man standing committee on peace.
DENVER, Oct. 14.-- (IP) - The
American Federation of Labor sent
a new peace proposal to the CI0
oday in response to the offer John
L. Lewis sent here Tuesday.
The proposal was new in that the
Federation agreed to enlarge to a
"reasonable" size the Executive Coun-
cil's three-man standing peace com-
mittee.
Otherwise, it was no different from
the offer the Federation stood by
since it suspended 10 leading CIO
unions for "insurrection" more than
a year ago.
It called for committees from the
two camps to meet "without condi-
tions or stipulations" to work out a
settlement.
Lewis' offer stipulated that the
AFL recognize the principle of the
industrial form of labor organization
for mass production business.
It also proposed that each side
send 100 men to the peace confer-
ence.
While a telegraph operator was
tapping out the peace plan to the CIO
meeting in Atlantic City, N. J., the
AFL convention unanimously elected
Green to his 13th term as president.
In accepting the post, Green adopt-
ed the most conciliatory tone he has
used for weeks in discussing the CIO
issue.
"I hope and trust and pray we may
become united,"' he said. "United we
are invincible."
Green interpreted the CIO peace
bid as an indication that "even these
to whom we have appealed in the past
12 months admit we are right-they
are willing to meet us in some kind
of a conference.

High officials of the Committee for

ferred not to comment until the con-

France Hints
Direct Action
Against Italy
Foreign Office Threatens
Reprisals Unless Fascist
Troops Are Withdrawn
British, French Seek
Protection Of Trade
LONDON, Oct. 14.-(M)-French
Foreign Office officials said tonight
that France is considering joint direct
action with Great Britain if a non-
intervention sub-committee fails to
obtain withdrawal of Italian volun-
teers from Spanish Insurgent armies.,
France stood ready to protect her
Mediterranean trade routes after
agreeing to go along with Britain in
giving the nine-power subcommittee
a quick chance to obtain withdrawal
of the troops. The committee is to
meet here Saturday morning.
French sources were pessimistic on
the outcome of the meeting where the
Spanish question is to be discussed on
Il Duce's chosen ground. British
spokesmen were only moderately
hopeful.
Acting apart from the noninter-
vention group, British and French
defense experts considered the vital
issue of French and British Medi-
terranean seaways. The question was
more vital to France because Spanish
Insurgent possession-with alleged
Italian domination-of two Balearic
Islands and an Italian threat against
a third put the Fascist spectre square-
ly across the path from which French
colonial reinforcements must come in
time of national need.
Following a cabinet meeting,
France sent a note to London. It was
stressed that French and British
declarations to be read when the non-
intervention group meets will insist
that the meeting be brief and to the
point.

there was a strong Chinese attack,

SWF Protests
Reduced NYA
Appropriation
"Young leadership has helped to
build the CIO into a vigorous or-
ganization and youth has a lot of
good solutions to problems old men
can't handle," Victor Reuther, youth-
ful union organizer, told the Student
Workers Federation last night in the
Union.
A soap-boxer in his college days,
Reuther skipped his finals to go to
Europe and Asia, where he found
"students and workers restless, as

they are here, in their search for
an opportunity to earn a living."
Last night's meeting was called as
part of a nation-wide protest in uni-
versities against cuts in NYA appro-
priations. Jack Sessions, '40, told the
meeting "the NYA is moving in the
wrong direction." He urged passage
of more "permanent and adequate"
measures to assist youth.
A motion was adopted to send a

Pope Condones
Japanese War
On Communists
Policy Called In Harmony
With Vatican's Attitude
On Civil War In Spain
VATICAN CITY, Oct. 14.-(A')-A
reliable Vatican source said tonight
that the Holy See condones Japanese
military activity in China wherever
Communism appears to be the enemy.
This policy was said in well-in-
formed Vatican quarters to represent
a normal expansion of Pope Pius' in-
creasingly militant campaign against
Bolshevism. It was described as be-
ing in harmony with the Vatican's
attitude toward the Spanish civil war
and with the outspoken attacks on
Communism which His Holiness made
in his encyclicals of .Marc'h 18 and
Sept. 29.
The Vatican source said this policy
had been set forth in a private mem-
orandum defining the church's posi-
tion in the Chinese-Japanese conflict.
Catholic representatives in the Far
East were said to have received in-
structions to adapt themselves to this
policy. Wherever in China, the Com-
munist peril seemed real they have
been told, this source said, "to sup-
port, without reserve, Japanese ac-
tion."
At the same time they were in-
structed to continue and intensify
their work of Christian charity to aid
the sufferers of both sides. Complete
impartiality is to be the rule in min-
istering to the wounded of either na-
tion.
The Vatican source asserted that
the private memorandum contained
eight specific instructions, of which'
the more important were summarized
as follows:
"Wherever Bolshevist danger ap-
pears active to support, without re-
serve, Japanese action."
"To give Japanese military authori-
ties the clear impression that on the
part of the Catholic Church there is
no obstacle to complete colabora-
tion."
Youth Receives Injuries

Plans Completed For Rally
To Instill Confidence
In MichiganEleven
Meeting To Be Held
At Hill Auditorium
For the first time in four years the
complete football squad will partici-
pate in the second "pep session" of
the year at 7:30 p.m. today at Hill
Auditorium.
Plans for the rally were finally
completed last night after they had
previously been abandoned. It wa
decided, however, according to Hugh
Rader, president of the Men's Coun-
cil, to hold the pep rally to deM-
onstrate the volume of student sup-
port behind the team in its encounter
with the Gophers tomorrow.
On the eve of "Homecoming" and
the game in which some favor Mich-
igan over Minnesota for the first
time in four years, it is expected
that tonight's rally will be the great-
est in enthusiasm and attendance
held at Michigan for many years.
In addition to Coach Harry Kipke,
Assistant Coach Heartly "Hunk" An-
derson, Coach Fielding H. Yost, Prof.

outside speakers will be obtained, it
was predicted. J. Fred Lawton, who
in collaboration with Professor Moore
wrote "Varsity," is expected to be
here. Several of the football players,
to appear on the stage at 7:45 p.m.
are also scheduled to address the
throng, among whom are Capt. Joe
Rinaldi, '38, Don Siegel, '39, Doug
Farmer, '38, and Fred Trosko, '40.
The band will again participate in
the pep rally.
The principal purpose of the rally,
it was pointed out by representatives
of the Men's Council and the Athletic
Administration, is to instill in the
team the confidence the student body
is believed to have in the eleven.
Rader will be in charge "of the
program, although he hinted that one
of the other principals may assume
the duties of master of ceremonies.
PWA Housing
Aide To Give
Lecture Here
Arthur Bohner of Chicago, housing
consultant for the PWA, will speak on
"Housing and Property Management"
in a University lecture at 10 a.m. to-
morrow in the auditorium of the ar-
chitectural building.
Mr. Bohner will discuss mainly
housing and the planning of com-
munities to fit social needs. He will
deal with the planning of buildings
within the community and sidelights
on how the communities should be
managed with respect to tenants, up-
keep, rent, and other problems. He
is expected to present practical con-
siderations on the subject of housing
as experienced by men in that work.
Mr. Bohner has been consultant for
the housing division of the PWA for
the past four years. He has devoted
much time to housing and has worked
out a general plan of management
that has been used by the government
in various housing schemes. He was
one of the first men in the middle
west to promote and build cooperative
apartment houses, having planned
three high-rental apartments of this
type on the Chicago lake shore. Lately
he has worked with low-cost housing
from the community and social point
of view.
Those Sophomores
Had Best Look Out!
Or So Freshmen Say

Announcement of the renewal of
class game hostilities between the
freshmen and sophomores was greet-
ed enthusiastically at a meeting of
representative members of the class
of '41 last night.
It was then decided by a unanimous
vote of those present that as a pre-
liminary challenge to the sophomores,
a giant snake dance will twist its way
around the gridiron between the
halves of Saturday's game showing
the full strength of the freshman
class.
It was also decided to hold a meet-
