Senate Rebels
At President's
Plan To Slash
Road Building,
Backs Plan To Stimulate
Business By Reducing
Cost Of Home Making
Roosevelt Hits At
Premature Spending
WASHINGTON, Nov 30 -(P)-_
Congressmen found fault with one
item of President Roosevelt's pro-
gram for helping business out of its
slump today but made all prepara-
tions for passing another quickly.
Hardly hid the President asked a
deep cut in road building expendi-
tures than Senators Hayden and Ash-
urst, Arizona Democrats, announced
their opposition and Chairman Cart-
wright (Dem., Okla.) of the House
Roads Committee issued a sharply
critical statement.
Building Plan Exceptable
All was well, however, with the
President's proposal for reducting the
cost of home building in the hope of
stirring up a construction boom that
would have a generally beneficial ef-
fect. Hearings were begun, and the
legislation was put on the list for
enactment at the special session.
The President's anti-depression
program, as announced in recent days
consists of five points: housing, gov-
ernment retrenchment (to which the
road building cut is related), imme-
diate purchase of some $245,000,000
worth of government supplies, a re-
vision of taxes and encouragement
of public utility construction pro-
In a special message to Congress
today on road building expenditures
Mr. Roosevelt objected "strenuously"
to the practice of incurring advance
obligations for this purpose without

Are Authorized EarlyI
The practice has been to make
"authorizations" one to two years
ahead of time for federal assistance'
to the states in building secondary
roads. At the beginning of each yearl
the sum authorized has been appor-
tioned among the states by the Sec-
retary of Agriculture, tQ be followed
by actual appropriations.
Existing law says that on Jan. 1,
Secretary Wallace must apportion to
the states $214,000,000 of the 1939 au-
thorization. The President asked that
before that date, Congress cancel the
authorization. He added a reouest

A repoll will be taken of junior
class literary college electors from

Room 18, Angell Hall, after the first
vote of that class was thrown out by
the Men's Council Nov. 16, follow-
ing a protest by the Washtenaw
Washtenaw's protest came as a
counter-protest to that of the State
Street party who claimed that nurses
voting when the polls were held open
in the evening of the election, Nov.
10, were not eligible. ,
Hugh Rader, '38, president of the
Men's Council, declared that the eve-
ning votes were invalid, and pro-
claimed the State Street party elect-
ed, in view of the fact it was ahead
at the close of the polls at 5 p.m. With
the evening's ballots, the Washtenaw
party slate won the election.
Following Washtenaw's protest
against the casting out of ballots of
,the evening, the Men's Council met
on Nov. 16, and decided that a new
!election should be held today.

Bud Wells on the Washtenaw ticket
and John Thompson on the State
Street ticket; for vice-president,

Modest Jayvee
Player Saves
2 From Death
Modesty is usually a very desirabk
trait, but in the case of Harry K.
Mulholland, '40, a Junior Varsity
football player, this trait wNs carried
a little too far. He didn't consider
the spectacular rescue of two drown-
ing men a feat worthy of more than
the most casual mention.
At about 8:30 last Thursday night,
Mulholland saw the automobile in
front of him on the Saginaw-Bay
City road skid into adeep canal lead-
ing to the Saginaw River. As he
reached the scene of the accident he
saw that the car was almost entirely
submerged and the occupants trapped.
He ran to the side of the canal and
saw that two men had gotten out of
the automobile but were still trapped
under the ice. In a style probably
reminiscent of Douglas Fairbanks, he
broke the ice and leaped into the
water, helping the two victims of the
accident to the shore.
In a few minutes the state high-
way patrol appeared and Mulholland
was relieved of his responsibility.
Without even waiting to hear the
names of the men whose lives he had
undoubtedly saved, he returned to his
car and drove away. When questioned
upon the haste of his departure, he,
said, "It was cold."
Mulholland's modesty was so ex-
cessive that even the members 'of his
own fraternity, Chi Phi, did not dis-
cover his heroic action until four days
after it happened.
Tag Day Drive
For Youngsters
The tenth annual tag sale conduct-
ed by Galens, junior and senior hon-
orary medical society, will be held to-
day and tomorrow on -"the campus
and in the downtown district to raise
money for children's workshop,
Christmas party and book shelf at the
University Hospital.
The goal for the drive has been set
at. $2,000, Roger W. Howell,, '38M,
president of Galens, said last night.
Last year 618 children used the work-
shop on the ninth floor of the hos-
pital, which amounted to approxi-
mately 8,000 working hours, he stated.
The workshop familiarizes them with
manual training experience which
they would otherwise receive at
school. Funds from- the Galens tag
sale enable the social service depart-
ment of the hospital to provide this,
instruction to the children. Many
children make toys, bookends andI
other articles to take home or sell.!

A compromise move to permit dis-
cussion of campus affairs by the Stu-
dent Model Senate was passed yester-1
day by the executive committee after1
the body last week tabled a motion1
limiting the Senate's jurisdiction toi
national and international issues.
By an amendment, passed unani-
mously yesterday, provision was made
that "issues discussed in the Student
Model Senate be initiated as national
and international issues." It was left
to the Senate to decide whether
national and international affairs will
be interpreted through local prob-
Motions passed by this committee
are not binding upon the Senate but
are merely recommendations. The.
first meeting, held last week, pro-I
posed that the Student Model Senate l
be formed to consolidate undergrad-
uate opinion.
The group left as unsettled bus-

Jewell, '38, S. R. Kleiman, '39, Clar-
ence Kresin, '38, Virginia Krieghoff,
'38, and Phil Westbrook, '40.
Original plans for representation 1
on the basis of states, similar to the
Federal Senate, had the intention of
reflecting sectional interests in the
body's vote. Alternate proposals, sug-
gested yesterday, would draw mem-
bers from campus organizations, pro-
portionally from states or propor-
tionally from the schools and colleges
on campus.
The body also moved to get faculty
opinions on the plan and to have ad-.

Arms Thrown Out
As Parisians Fear
Government Drive
PARIS, Nov. 30.--(R')-Arms sei-
zures in the government drive against
a secret revolutionary organization
accused of plotting to set up a dic-
tatorship in France led to new conse-
quences today.
Many Parisians who kept arms as
war souvenirs and others with arms
supplies dropped them in streetsand
parks, fearing they might be con-
nected with the plot if the arms were
found in their homes.
A total of 576 loaded hand gre-
nades was discovered lying on the
grass in peaceful Bois De Boulogne,
Police i'imediately issued an ap-
peal to Parisians to call at the nearest
police station or city laboratory if,
they wanted arms supplies removed,

Of Civil Service

Act Provisions

Michigan State Also Given
Exemption From New
Bill By Attorney General
LANSING, Nov. 30.-(/P)-An opin-
ion handed down today by Attorney
General Raymond W. Starr exempted
employes of the University and Mich-
igan State College from provisions of
the State Civil Service Act.
Starr said employes of the Mich-
igan College of Mining and Technol-
ogy, the state normal colleges and the
teachers' colleges are subject to the
act with the exception of presidents,
deans, registrars, professors, instruc-
tors, teachers, research assistants and
student employes.
Starr gave his opinion at the re-
quest of State Civil Service Director
William Brownrigg.
Prof. James K. Pollock of the po-
litical science department last night
told the Daily that the opinion "is
essentially what has been generally
accepted for a long time.""
Professor Pollock added that "it is
the same kind of opinion that was
given earlier to the Civil Service
Study Commission when it made its
recommendations." Professor Pollock
was chairman of that body.
"Despite this opinion," Starr said
in an informal discussion later, "I see1
no reason why the University should
not avail .itself of the facilities set
up by the Civil Service Commission if
the Regents desire."
Starr pointed out that the Supreme
Court frequently has held that the

The CIO contention that all the
workers in each large industry should
belong to one big union without re-
gard to traditional AFL craft lines
topped thelist of controversial points
made public by George M. Harrison,
chairman of the AFL peace commit-
This industrial union issue was re-
sponsible for the split in the AFL
ranks that led to the formation of the
CIO two years ago.
Other issues on the list:
1. The CIO's insistence that it
remain a semi-independent agency
under the AFL after peace is made.
The AFL demands that the CIO be
2. The CIO's request that the
powers of the AFL executive council
be curbed by amendment of the AFL
constitution if peace is effected.
3. What machinery should be set
up to make an agreement effective.
Neither side has made public its views
on this question.
4. How many votes the CIO unions
would have in a joint convention that
would be called to ratify any agree-
ment the peace conference made.
Philip Murray, chairman of the
CIO peace delegation, emphasized
that even an accord on those five
points would not mean the end of the
labor war.
Other significant developments on
the national labor front include:
Non-striking Greyhound drivers re-
ported three buses were fired upon
today as strikers considered an ulti-
matum from the nine affected lines to
return to work or lose their jobs.
Carriers rolling over Pennsylvania
mountains were targets of gunfire,
