Causes Grave Situation
Union Asks Senate
To Send Observer
ST. LOUIS, Nov. 27.-(P)-Fear of
violence in the United Automobile
Workers' strike against the Ford Mo-
tor Company was voiced today by an
attorney for the company and by
representatives of the CIO union.
Dan Bartlett, lawyer for Ford, told
Circuit Judge Robert J. Kirkwood
bloodshed was likely if the court did
not issue an injunction to restrain
mass picketing at the St. Louis as-
sembly plant. The judge, however,
declined to take immediate action.
Ask 'Impartial Observer'
At the request of strike leaders,
Richard Frankensteen, UAWA inter-
national vice-president at Detroit,
telegraphed the Senate Civil Liberties
Committee and asked that an "im-
partial observer" be'sent to St. Louis.
Absence of committee members held
up action on the request in Wash-
ington.
Delmond Garst, regional director
for the CIO affiliate, said he had in-
formed Frankensteen, that violence
was possible "because they (Ford)
have brought in so many people that
we can expect anything, not neces-
sarily at the plant but at the homes
of our members."
The union called the.strike Wed-
nesday after charging the company
refused to bargain collectively, dis-
criminated against union members,
forced employes to sign "loyalty
pledges," and fostered a company
union.
The Ford injunction suit, filed the
day the strike was called, charged 29
individual defendants with conspir-
acy to interfere with and damage the
company's business. It contended
they were responsible for mass picket-
ing at the plant and "intimidation"
of Ford employes.
Pt Have Control
Judge Kirkwood, in postponing a
hearing on the suit until next Fr
day, because all defendants had not
been served, commented that police
were in charge of the situation.
"You attorneys," he told Bartlett'
"come into court perspiring and de-
manding action, but my experience
is that these labor troubles quiet
down."
The plant, which operated Wednes-
day and again Friday after the inter-
vening Thanksgiving holiday, was
closed today and will be shut down
again tomorrow. Milton N. Johnson,
the manager, has said operations
would be resumed Monday.
William Kimberling, prsident of
the UAWA's Ford local, aid mass
picketing would be resumed Monday.
Members of sympathetic CIO unions
have been prominent on the picket
lines.
CIO Seeks Safe Peace
WASHINGTON, Nov. 27.-()-
John Brophy, director of the Com-
mittee for Industrial Organization,
told a national unitydconference of
furniture workers today that 010
would not accept a peace with the
American Federation of Labor "that
means death."
"Any peace we make," said Brophy,
"must be made between equals, and
must provide protection for the 4,-
000,000 workers now enrolled in the
CIO."
Conferences between representa-
tives of the two rival labor organiza-

tions in an effort to bring about unity
in the ranks of labor will be resumed
in Washington on Monday.

New Department Places
State Penal System In
Single Administration
By ROBERT MITCHELL
The Department of Correction, or-
ganized by the Michigan legislature
in its last session, will revise the penal
system of the State and may serve as
a model for such reform in other
states, Prof. Arthur E. 'Wood of the
sociology department, research ad-
viser of the new department, said
yesterday.
The new department puts the en-
tire state penal system under one
administrative set-up, coordinating
the fields of prison management, pro-
bation and parole. It provides a sci-
entific staff for each of these fields
and centralizes them under a central
board which can supervise work being
done and establish a long-term policy
for the whole penal field. It opens
the way for more adequate facilities
for field work in probation and pa-
role.
The department was established to
clean up the old situation in the
fields of prison management and the
administration of paroles and proba-
tions. These had for years been
largely political and full of ineffi-
ciency, Professor Wood said, with the
leaders changing with .every change
in party power. The result was in-
efficiency in the administration of
probations and a lack of a continuous,
well-planned system of management
of prisons.
In the fall of last year Governor
Murphy established a penal commis-

sion to set up a program for reform.
Prof. Burke Shartel of the Law School'
and Professor Wood were appointed
from the University, while Caroline
Parker of Detroit was made chair-'
man. Messrs. Fred Johnson, Thomas
Koefgen, former prison commissioner,i
and Hilmer Gallein, present head of
the corrections department, were on
the board.
This commission planned the pres-
ent department, and its bill was
passed with little amendment at theI
last session of the Legislature. Gal-i
lein was appointed to head the new
department, and Professor Wood was
made research adviser. New officials,
including new prison wardens, have
been appointed by the Governor
throughout the system.
So far the system has shown great
promise, Professor Wood declared.
The Civil Service has brought the
merit system to the prisons, and there
has been a reorganization of the sta-
tistical and prisoner classification
departments. Facilities for psychi-
atric and social service have been
established, and the organization of
the field branches of the probation
system have been developed. The
outlook, he said, is the best in the
past 20 years.
Civil service will be a big factor
in making the new set-up a success,
Professor Wood explained, because
the department has been designed
under the view that penal adminis-
tration is of vital importance to com-
bating crime. Appointments by merit
are expected to help place efficient,
well-trained men in charge of this
part of the system.

In First Game
Spike James And 'Smack'
Allen Turn In Stellar
Performances In Rink
Packed House Sees
Stirring 3-0 Victory'
By IRVIN LISAGORk
(Daily Spoxts Editor)
Michigan's scrappy hockey six pried
the winter sports season open last'
night at -the Coliseum by handily
trimming the University of Western
Ontario, 3 to 0, but the story of
the affair lay in the uncovering of
several recruits who promise to make
Coach Eddie Lowrey's contingent in-
teresting, as well as successful, this
season.
Veteran Gib James, of course,
sparked the Wolverine attack by scor-
ing two goals, John Fabello played his
usual steady, resourceful game at the
other wing and the senior defense
pair bumped and checked most of the!
Canadians' serious threats.
Young James Shines
But it was Eldon (Spike) James,
Gib's kid brother in the nets, and Ed-
win (Smack) Allen, burly center,
who in their initial collegiate effort
-comported themselves like experi-I
enced puckmen and constantly drew
the plaudits of the capacity crowd.
Impressive, too, was the second
line which featured two other rook-
ies, Everett Doran, center, and Les
Hillberg, wingman, who teamed with
Ed Chase to offer succulent relief to
the regular forwards. Doran dis-
played a measure of brilliance as he
slapped home the first goal of the
evening.

A successful boycott of many na-
tions against Japan could reduce that
nation to impotence within 10
ionths, Dr. Tuan-Sheng Chien, pro-
fessor of political science at the Na-
tional University in Peking, declared
in a talk before the Chinese Students:
Club yesterday in the Union.
Such a boycott as Dr. Chien en-
visaged would include not only the
basic silk trade but "non-intercourse"
in other commodities which could be
used either for war or ordinary trade.
Dr. Chien, who will make another
address before the Liberal Students
Union at 7:30 p.m. tonight in the
Unitarian Church, is visiting in the
United States, having come from
China only a short time ago.
For the greater part of his talk
Dr. Chien, a student in the Univer-
sity Summer Session in 1920. con-
fined himself to an exposition of the
origin of the present war in the Far
East.
"The origin of the war dates far
back," he said, "and has its root in

Japanese. They have always been an
expanding and warlike people."

WASHINGTON, Nov. 27.--()-
Secretary Hull, concerned for the fu-
ture of China's commercial "open
door," warned Japan today that the
United States could not look with
equanamity on any attempt to tam-
per with the Chinese maritime cus-
toms system.
Acting on his instructions, Amer-
ican Ambassador Joseph C. Grew for-
mally notified the Tokyo Foreign
Office that the American government
would be "very much concerned' 'if
the Japanese conquerors of Shang-
hai and other parts of Chint dis-
turbed the integrity of the Chinese
customs service.
Consulting Other Powers
The secretary of state, in making
this known at his press conference,
announced also that the state de-
partmentwa maintaining close con-
tact on the subject with other gov-
ernments, some of whom, notably
Great Britain, have lodged similar
representations with the Japanese
government.
Whether Washington and the other
protesting powers contemplate fur-
ther action with respect to the cus-
toms situation was not made known.
But officials here did not attempt to
disguise their growing anxiety over
the possible consequences to Amer-
ican trade and financial investments
in China if the customs ports were
seized.
Uppermost in their calculations was
the question whether such big ship-
ping centers as Shanghai and other
coastal cities might be treated like
the interior Chinese customs depots
which were taken over in the Jap-
anese conquest of Manchuria in 1932-
33.
Make& umaU Sine'~
Since then, trade authorities said,
American. and other foreign export-
ers have been able to enter the Man-
churfan market only with the small
categories of goods Japan was un-
able to supply.
. Approximately 55 per cent of
America's annual exports to China
proper, amounting in 1936 to about
$47,000,000, move through the Shang-
hai customs.
Britain Also Uneasy
LONDON, Nov. 27.-UP)--Great
Britain today ordered her ambassador
to Tokyo to inform Japan that Brit-
ain insisted on being consulted before
any changes were made in the Chi-
nese maritime customs.
As British anxiety shifted from Eu-
rope to the Orient, some quarters
suggested recent Japanese moves to
take over the government of con-
quered Shanghai might lead Britain
again to try to bring the United
1 States into a joint British-French-
American program.
The British instructions to Sir Ro-
bert Craigie, the Tokyo ambassador,
came almost on the eve of an Anglo-
French conference on the interna-
tional situation.
It was understood the threat to
Anglo-French interests in the Shang-
hai international settlement might
overshadow European affairs in the
talks between Prime Minister Neville
Chamberlain and French Premier
Camille Chautemps.
Official British quarters said the
United States would be "advised
fully" on anything it wants to know
about the Anglo-French talks.
