By 67-17 Score;
Tomski And Hutchens Set
Pace In Easy Victory;
Relay Record Shattered
EAST LANSING, Mich., Jan. 26.-
(Special to the Daily)-Michigan's
Varsity swim team extended its long-
time aquatic supremacy over Mich-
igan State here tonight, winning every
first place, including firsts in both
relays to capture a 67-17 decision.
Walt Tomski and Ed Hutchens
paced the Wolverines in their one-
sided triumph. Each won two free-
style races and swam fast laps in the
360 yard free-style relay event which
Michigan won in 3:17.5, a new record
for the Spartan tank. The latter was
the only new mark made during the
evening's meet.
Tomski Wins Twice
Tomski turned in a pair of fast
performances, being clocked in 23.9
seconds for the 50-yard distance and

For Third Term
MIAMI, Fla., Jan. 27.-(P)--
William Green, president of the
American Federation of Labor,
said tonight a new peace proposal
made by Chairman John L. Lewis
of the CIO at Washington "is just
the same old thing" and con-
tained objectionable features of a
plan previously rejected.
Green said "no one will be de-
ceived" by Lewis' suggestion be-
fore the United Mine Workers'
"It is identical with the im-
possible plan proposed by Lewis
toward the end of the Washing-
ton peace conferences."
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26.--(IP)--The
CIO unions will join the American
Federation of Labor next week if the
Federation will take them as they
stand, John L. Lewis announced to-
As an alternative, the CIO leader
offered to take all AFL unions into
the CIO as they stood.
His peace proposals, the most defi-
nite he has yet made, caused some ex-
citement among observers *of labor
trends. The offers were announced at
an uproarious session of the United
Mine Workers convention. Lewis said
his purpose was to quiet "those abroad
in the land who say this labor con-
troversy is terrible."
The Lewis speech was the high spot
of the day's session, but another de-
velopment was the introducton of
eight resolutions by union locals fa-
voring a third term for President
Roosevelt. The convention has yet
to act on the resolutions.
Lewis emphasized his peace pro-
posals by declaring:
"If the AFL is so anxious for peace,
we'll make a proposal. We all want
peace-peace with honor.
"If the AFL wants peace, I will
recommend to the 4,000,000 members
of the CIO that on the first day of
February they march into the AFL,
horse, foot and dragoon, if the AFL
will issue charters to the CIO units
and later call a convention to arrange
the details.
"If that be not pleasing to the AFL,
we offer the alternative proposal that
on the first day of February AFL
unions march into the CIO, horse,
foot and dragoon, receive charters,
and hold a convention later to ar-
range details."
The convention came to its feet,
cheering, whistling and applauding.
Lewis beamed.
Previously Lewis had declared that
no one had been "hurt" by the CIO
He said unionism had made gains
in steel, automobiles, rubber, the
transportation industry and the radio
industry, then added:
"Why, even the AFL is no weaker.
Everywhere the CIO has gone in and
organized a basic industry, it has
made it safe for the AFL to come
in and gather up the butcher, the
baker and the candlestick maker."
A canvass of delegates showed they
