Rival Labor
Unions Ready
To Talk Peace
Spokesmen Push Through
Preliminary Quesions
For Action On Unity
Lewis And Martin
Confer On Policy
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.- (P) -
Spokesmen for the A.F. of L. and the
CIO rushed- through a mass of pre-
liminary questions today and reached
the point of submitting to each other
their proposals for peace and unity in
the ranks of labor.
Gathered about a conference table
for the first time, representatives of
the two embattled factions devoted
two sessions today to a discussion of
procedural problems, some of them
highly controversial.
Then, a joint statement was issued,
saying it was "hoped" that when the
conference reconvened tomorrow,
each side would be ready to suggest
a "basis" for peace negotiations. To
this, George Harrison, leader of the
A.F. of L. delegation, added:
"Tomorrow we will take up the
main question of the dispute. We
will put on our overalls and see what
we can do with it."
Both Harrison and Philip Murray,
leading CIO spkesman, told report-
ers that since the CIO delegation of
10 men and the A.F. of L. delegation
of three had full authority respec-
tively to negotiate any kind of a set-
tlement the 13 constituted a "full-
fledg d" delegation.
In addition other procedural mat-
ters, the question of what new mem-
bers each has taken in since the or-
ganizations split apart two years ago
was raised.
"Both parties found that they need-
ed certain infcrmation in order to ad-
vance discussions in the conference
and it is expected that information
will be available by tomorrow morn-
ing." the statement said.;
In explanation, Murray said theI
Federation, has asked specifically for]
exclusive jurisdiction. If a peace planF
is to be adopted the leaders must de-
cide which wo kers or industries or
complete identification of the Unions]
which have joined the CIO, including
605 local industrial unions.
"We are asking the Federation to
submit to us the same informationt
regarding their new groups," Murray
In these requests for information,]
observers saw arising the knotty ques-
plants lie wthin the sphere of theI
CIO and which fall within the A.F.1
of L.'s field of operations.3

Labor Control
Of Australian
Senate Looms
Slight Gains In House
Also Made; Returns
Not Yet Complete
SYDNEY, New South Wales, Oct.
26.-(Tuesday)-(/P)-Labor, which
made small gains in the Lower House
in Australia's general. election, today
appeared to be threatening govern-
ment control of the Senate.
Labor senatorial candidates were
leading every state as returns from
Saturday's voting still came in.
The Government pinned hopes for
a majority'in the Senate on the State
of South Australia.
The margin of labor candidates
there was slim on the basis of unof-
ficial figures.
The Australian Senate is elected
by proportional representation so
that the counting of ballots takes
greater time than for the House of
Should th C)evernment capture
the three seats at stake in Suth
Australia it would retain its control
of the 36member Upper House where
it now controls 17 seats not contested
at this election.
However, the definite swing toward
labor that became apparent in all
states left the possibility that South
Australia might join New South
Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Tas-
mania and Western Australia where
observers conceded labor yas gain-
It was predicted that Labor's win-
ning a majority in the Senate would
precipitate a Governmental crisis
when the new senate meets next July
and organization of the new Gov-
ernment begins.
Meeting To Discuss
Co-op Incorporation
Incorporation of the Wolverines
eating cooperative preliminary to
signing a land contract for the build-
ing at 209 S. State St. will be the
main subject for action at the general
membership meeting at 7 p.m. today
in Natural Science Auditorium.
Arrangements affecting the five-
dollar membership fee are contained
in a proposed motion, which provides
"Credit will be given each member fo'
two dollars annual dues, and the cor-
poration will issue its note to each
member for three dollrs, payable
June 30, 1938, with interest at four
per cent."
The plan, proposed in a notice urg-
ing attendance of the co-op's 650
members, provides that if "profits'
warrant it, a proportionate reduction
in the price of board will be made
during the last few weeks of next
semester, instead of cash payment of
dividends and return of membership

fees in cash.

"Social Justice," publication of Father
Charles E. Coughlin's National Union

The sale, made known by Father

A Spokesman Says
Ex-Minister Urges
Advance On Russia
SHANGHAI, Oct. 26.-(Tuesday)
-(P)-Chinese bombing planes car-
ried the fight to Japanese positions
on Shanghai's northern fringe early
today while Chinese infantrymen
held doggedly against the onslaughts
of some 160,000 Japanese along the
twisting front north of the city.
A Japanese army spokesman ad-
mitted the Japanese drive had
"slowed down" after six days of the
fiercest offensive operations of the
ten-weeks-old battle' for Shanghai.
Foreign experts estimated some 300,-
000 Chinese troops were holding the
line northwest from Shanghai to
the Yangtze estuary.
The city's international areas
rocked to the bomb explosions, While
new heavy anti-aircraft guns re-
cently installed in Hongkew by the
Japanese searched the moonlit heav-
ens for the raiders.
Fragments and shrapnel fell in.
the international districts and police
reported three Chinese had been
killed and 19 injured in those areas
in the last 24 hours.
Five miles northwest of the city
Chinese and Japanese were fighting
hand to hand in the streets of Ta-
zang, key to the back door of the
Chinese positions at Kiangwan and
Chapei, where the Chinese flank is
protected by the neutrality of the
International Settlement.
Urges Attack On Russia
TOKYO, Oct. 25.-()-General
Baron Sadao Araki, who as minister
of war directed Japan's conquest of
Manchuria in 1931-33, declared to-
day "it probably is necessary for
Japan to strike directly at Russia"
to eliminate Communist influence
from the Far East.
Communism, he asserted, is the
root of the present turmoil in the
orient and the cause of the Chinese-
Japanese conflict.
General Araki, in retirement since
the Tokyo army uprising of February,
1936, recently emerged to become a
member of Premier Prince Fumimaro
Konoye's high advisory council. He
has long been a, strong advocate of
a stern policy toward Soviet Russia.

their lolling lethargy yesterday after-
noon by Miss Elizabeth MacDonald
Osborne, personality expert from New
York City.
The members of the council were
sprawling over the tables in cus-
tomaryfashion, discussing the Big
Apple, or something, when Miss Os-
borne dropped into the smoke-filled
room to give the young women a few
hints in the general problems of poise
and bearing.
"Do not act as if you were ashamed
of your feet by hiding them under
the chair," she said. "Sit erect with
your feet crossed (at the ankles) be-
fore you."
After speaking for 10 minutes, Miss
Osborne left the council to its own

Scottsboro Boy
Loses Appeal
To High Court
Justice Black Is Silent;
Patterson Doomed To
75 Year Sentence
WASHINGTON, Oct. 25.-(P)-The
Supreme Court, after twice saving
him from death refused today to in-
terfere with a 75-year prison term
imposed in 1936 upon Heywood Pat-
terson, one of nine Negroes who fig-
ured in the Scottsboro case.
In asking the Court to review his
conviction, Patterson contended' it
was impossible to obtain a fair trial
in Morgan County, Ala. He was found
guilty of attacking Mrs. Victoria
Price, a white woman, in a freight
train near Scottsboro, Ala., in 1931.
Justice Hugo L. Black did not par-
ticipate in the decision. There had
been some talk among observers that,
if he did participate, the decision
might be challenged because of his
former membership in the Ku Klux
Patterson and the others escaped
the death penalty in 1932 when the
High Tribunal ruled they had not
been adequately represented by coun-
sel and set aside their conviction.
Subsequently, in 1935, the Court or-
dered a new trial because negroes
had been "systematically excluded"
from juries which had indicted and
convicted Patterson and the other'
Negroes. At the next trial, Patter-
son was sentenced to prison.

PARIS, Oct. 25.-(AP)-Aerial "Pi-
racy" confronted Europe with a new
Mediterranean crisis tonight. One
French vessel was bombed and sunk
and another bombed and burned by
planes marked with a black Maltese
cross. Three planes shot down while
raiding Barcelona were Italian, the
Spanish government declared.
The Spanish government embassy
here said the black cross was the
mark of the Spanish Insurgent air-
force. Insurgent representatives said
they could not describe the standard
markings of their pl'anes.
Bombs French Submarine
A cross-marked air raider bombed
and set fire to a French submarine
chaser today just outside the port
of Fornells, on the island of Minorca
of the eastern coast of Spain, less
than 48 hours after a similarly-
marked seaplane had sunk the
French freighter Oued Mellah in the
northern Mediterranean.
The French government ordered
its heavy destroyer Milan, which had
just arrived at Toulon with eleven
survivors of the Oued Mellah, tb
speed immediately to Fornells. The
foreikn office issued the following
communique :
"Following attacks by airplanes, of
which two French boats have been
the objects, the government has
taken urgently necessary dispositions
to determine and identify the ag-
-gressors and adopt measures which
are called for by such attacks.
Warship On Scence
"Already one warship has left for
the scene. The government also is
taking dispositions to assure protec-
tion for the Air France line between
Marseille and Algiers."

sisted that the vital communications

Students Also Condemn Lighting
As Inadequate In Drafting Labs

Statements by engineering college
faculty members last week condem-
ing lighting facilities in drafting lab-
oratories were upheld yesterday by
six students picked at random from
persons who have had, or are now
taking courses in engineering draw-
The chief fault found by the stu-
dents in laboratory illumination was
the present of shadows.
"Insufficient natural and artificial

think that it was a definite strain
on my eyes."
The majority of the students inter-
viewed scoffed at the statement that
there was no drawing insthe labora-
tories after 4 p.m. In spite of the
fact that there are no regularly sched-
uled classes after that time, they said
that it was necessary to work until
6 p.m. in order to finish many exer-
cises. Blame for this may be partly
laid on faulty lighting.
"Lighting in the laboratories is, in
general, very poor," Morris Steere,
'40E, asserted. "In the first place
there is not enough light and in the
second place light sources are seem-
ingly placed without any thought
whatsoever. The shadows are thrown
