DENVER, Oct. 15-(A)-The Amer-s
lcan Federation of Labor again
dashed cold water tonight on a peace
proposal from the rebel CIO.
"Meet us on our terms or not at
all," the Federation's executive coun-
cil, in effect, told the CIO by tele-
gram in reply to a suggestion from
the rebel camp that each side send a
cbmmittee of 10 to Washington, D.C.,'
October 25 to try to arrange a peace1
The AFL terms were that each side
send a committee of three into a
conference room to make a settle-
ment "without prior commitments,
stiuplations or conditions by either
The CIO proposal, they said, con-t
tained a "stipulation" they never1
could accept. They interpteted it to
mean that the CIO had been right1
and the AFL wrong ever since the1
revolt started nearly two years ago.
They called the offer, in short, "as
well designed attempt to mislead the
public and confuse the issue."
The CIO's proposal was its second
this week. The first called for each,
side ° to name a committee of 100
to work out a settlement with due1
recognition to the principle of the
industrial type of organization that
the CIO was using.
In the Federation's name, Presi-
dent William Green immediately re-
jected this proposal, accusing the
C10 of "bad faith."
Latei, however, a special conven-
tion committee made a counter-pro-
posal. This called for each side to
send a committee of "reasonable"
size tb a peace conference with no
The CIO countered with today's
plan, going so far as to name its ten-
man committee. John L. Lewis was
not included.
In its reply, the council pointed out
that it had named a peace commit-
tee headed by George Harrison, pres-
ident of the railway clerks, when ten
0I0 unions were suspended for their
"insubordination" more than a year'
Lewis Attacks Congress
ATLANTIC CITY, N. J., Oct. 15.-
WA)-John L. Lewis ended a war coun-
cil of his Committee for Industrial
Organization chieftains today by de-
manding that labor generally obtain
a more important position in the na-
tion's economic and political life.
Criticizing the administration for
not reducing unemployment and Con-
gress for failing to enact a wage and
hour bill, he thus concluded five days
of important policy-making decisions,
ranging from peace overtures to the
American Federation of Labo rto.
endorsement of a boycott on Jap-
anese manufactured goods.
"The one great principle American
labor must stand for is the right of
the American Yaboring man and
woman to have a job if they are will-
ing and able to work," he said.
Congress should be criticized, he
said, for rejecting "that poor, halt-
ing" wage and hour bill at its last:
Pontiac House
Project Is Seen
Ndearly Ended
In recognition of the urgent need
of adequate housing for the lower
income bracket, a project in housing
development, nine miles west of Pon-
tiac, has been partially completed.
According to Prof. Jean Hebrard of
the College of Architecture, this ex-
periment, if successful, will inaugu-
rate a new type of semi-rural hous-
ing which should eventually lead to
a decentralization of our ever-pop-
ulated cities.
The object of the project is to bring
within the grasp of the industrial
worker living facilities conforming to
the American standard of living. The

average annual income of the worker
is inadequate to meet the rental de-
mands in cities and to allow him a de-
cent standard of living, Professor
Hebrard said.

Sees No Need For Change
Immediately; Party Shift
Might Cause Opposition
Eventually Ann Arbor will undoubt-
edly have a city managerial form of
government but such a switch-over
seems unlikely to take place in the
immediate future, in the opinion of
Prof. Arthur Bromage of the political
science department.
Professor Bromage recently discus-
sed the matter before the local Jun-
ior Chamber of Commerce which is
conducting an investigation of how
the plan would fit into the local
scheme of things.
At present Ann Arbor operates un-
der a typical "weak-mayor-and-coun-
cil" set-up, Professor Bromage said,
and while it is antiquated, there is no
vital need of a change in the near
Difficulties which would arise if
such' changes were made are many,
he pointed out. Under the more
modern system, election of a small
council-at-large composed of about
seven members would have to be ef-
fected, and this would conflict with
Ann Arbor's present ward system. The
shifting balance of political power be-
tween wards which would accompany
this innovation might well arouse op-
position, he stated.
A possible solution to this difficulty
lies in a compromise proposal with
the present council attempting to
fulfill the duties of the smaller city
manager type of council, or perhaps
some councilmen could be elected at-i
large and some by wards ProfessorI
Bromage stated. Another difficulty
would be switching over from thej
present partisan elections to non-par-
tisan ones, he added.
The effective city manager plan
which would probably be installed'
here is much like those spreading
throughout the country, he said. The

city manager's position is full-time
and well-salaried. He is chosen sup,-

ervised and, if need be, removed by
the council. Once in power, how-l
ever, the city manager would appoint?
department headsand be the focal
point of a centralized authority which
would tie departments together,
abolishing the present 19th century
commission system. The city man-
ager would be empowered to appoint
and remove department heads.
Under the plan there would still be
a mayor, ProfessorBromage pointed
out. The candidate receiving thej
most votes in the councilmanic elec-
tions would be "mayor," becoming the
town's political head and instrumen-
tal in formulating policies along with
the council of which he would be a
member. The city manager would be
the administrative head who carried
out these policies.
Whether feeling between town and
gown would be aggravated or lessened
with such a change cannot be fore-
cast, Professor Bromage concluded.

Far Eastern Stand
Denied By Vatican;-
VATICAN CITY, Oct. 15.-()-
The Vatican semiofficial news serv-
ice published today an official denial
of assertions by private Vatican!
sources that instructions already had
gone to missionaries in the Far East
regarding their conduct in the con-
flict between China and Japan. -
The news service said:
"News has been distributed in
America and published under sen-
sational headlines that the Vatican:
seeks to abet the fight against Com-
munism in Japanese favor.
"Instructions to this effect are said
to have been issued to representatives
of the Holy See in the Far East. Both
pieces of news are absolutely false
and have been officially denied by
Archbishop Celso Constantini.
Kiphe Peps Up
5,000 Students
For Gopher Tilt'
Midst yells of "roll 'em up" and
"take it off," Coach Harry Kipke led
5,000 cheering students in Michigan's
largest pep rally in recent years last
night in Hill Auditorium.
Assuming the chairmanship of
the meeting after being introduced by
by Hugh Rader, '38, president of the
Men's .Council, "Kip" went on to in-
troduce 27 members of the football
squad, Line Coach "Hunk" Ander-
son, J. Fred Lawton, '11, and Prof.
Earl V. Moore of the music school to
the cheering mob.
Mr. Lawton, who along with Pro-
fessor Moore wrote "Varsity" 26 years
ago, introduced "Mich-gan Locomo-
tive," a new song he and Professor
Moore composed on the 25th anni-
versary of "Varsity" last year.
The song, which is to be followed
by the Michigan locomotive cheer, is
dedicated to the 1937 football team.
(Is Goin' Right Through)
By Prof. Earl V. Moore and
J. Fred Lawton, '11
Hear the bell a ringin', hear the
whistle blow,
It's the Mich'gan locomotive get-
ting ready to go.
See that old conductor carrying
the sign,
"First stop is Victory at the end
of the line."
Engineer Kipke, he knows what
to do.
He's oiling up the engine and he's
pepping up the crew.
He's paintin' her a yellow, and he's
paintin' her a blue,
'Cause the Michigan locomotive is
goin' right through.
So hitch on the coaches and hitch
on the team,
And hitch on the rooters and turn
on steam.
We don't stop at Minnesota, Iowa
or Purdue,
Cause the Mich'gan locomotive is
goin' right through.
It will be played for the first time
by the Varsity Band Tuesday at the
Varsity Night.
Professor Moore led the group in
the singing of "Varsity," in accom-
paniment to the band, and Coach An-
derson said a few words.
Members of the football team who
spoke were Captain Joe Rinaldi '38

Although physically primed for this

lacked enthusiasm since the North-

Harry G. Kipke introduced each

The forensics dripped with optimism,
and Varsity partisans hoped some of

action to subdue the Gophers today.
During the week, Kipke's gridders
were decidedly unimpressive. Their
pass defense, through which both
Mfichigan State and Northwestern
scored victories, showed negligible
mprovement. Lack of precision on
offense drove the Wolverine mentor
to order a night practice Wednesday
to straighten out the difficulties.
