FDR Pleads
For Decision
To End Strike
President Sends Message
Urging Miners To Halt
Worst Rift In 17 Years
460,000 Workers
Now Unemployed
NEW YORK, May 6.-( P)--Presi
dent Roosevelt intervened today in
the deadlocked bituminous coal col-
tract negotiations, calling upon min-
srs and operators to reach a workable
agreement promptly to end the in-
dustry's worst shutdown in 17 years.
He told them that their "differ-
ences in viewpoint" did not appear to
be insurmountable, and said "the
orderly process of collective bargain-
ing should suffice to bring about their
Sends Telegram
"Becauseofsthis," the President
said in a telegram to Dr. John R.
Steelman, head of the U.S. Depart-
ment of Labor conciliation service,
"I urge that the present negotiations
with the federal commissioner con-
tinue, and that all sit down with the
intention to reach a fair, honorable
and workable agreement in a spirit
of give and take. Time is now im-
portant and agreement must be
reached promptly."
While it was sent to Dr. Steelman,
an observer at the negotiations since
April 25, the message was directed
to the joint Labor-and-Management
negotiating committee, which con-
tinued its seemingly fruitless sessions
today after being virtually command-
ed by Steelman yesterday not to
abandon their efforts.
President Worried
It was the first time the President
publicly had taken a hand in the sit-
uation, although one of the conferees
said today Mr. Roosevelt had been in
telephonic communication with the
negotiators previously to determine
what progress was being made.
One of the negotiators said the
group seemed to accept the Presi-
dent's telegram' as a command, and
thought it possible that the President
would urge the fixing of a deadline
should there be a further delay in
coming to an agreement.
A short time after the reading of
the telegram, John L. Lewis, Presi-
dent of the United Mine Workers of
America (CIO) and chief negotiator
for the miners, released the 150 mem-
bers of the union's policy committee,
but gave no public explanation for
sending the men home.
Last week when he summoned them
to New York, he said it was his no-
tion that the operators, after weeks
of negotiating, should be in a posi-
tion to know by Tuesday (May 2)
whether they intended to sign a new
contract, to replace the one which
expired March 31.

Hitler Envoy,
Count Ciano
Discuss Axis
Meet In Milan To Confer
OncMeans Of Fighting
'Encroachment Policy'
Danzig Plebiscite
To Be Considered
(By Associated Press)
Lieutenants of Adolf Hitler and
Benito Mussolini had their heads to-
gether today (Sunday) at conferences
which were expected to influence
largely the future course of the Rome-
Berlin partnership in Europe's bit-
ter diplomatic struggle.
The European situation in general
and Danzig in particular received
close scrutiny of Foreign Ministers
Joachim von Ribbentrop of Germany
and County Galeazzo Ciano of Italy
who met at Milan, Italy, while lead-
ers of the British-French front spent
the weekend in relaxation.
A German proposal for a plebiscite
in Danzig to decide whether it should
return to Germany was believed car-
ried to the Milan conference by von
Ribbentrop. Nazis considered the
result of such a vote would show
the Free City's predominantly Ger-
man population overwhelmingly in
favor of returning to the Reich.
Indications that German strategy
had taken this turn were coupled in
Berlin with reports that Hitler had
made quiet soundings looking toward
a possible burying of the hatchet with
Soviet Russia.
Axis Envoys Confer
MILAN, Italy, May 6.-(P)-The
German and Italian foreign ministers
met here today for discussions re-
liably reported to have included the
entire scope of the diplomatic con-
test between the Rome-Berlin axis
and the London-Paris front to line
up the nations of Europe.
Although it had been believed that
Joachim von Ribbentrop and Count
Galeazzo Ciano would confer prin-
cipally on the dangerous question of
Danzig, tonight it appeared the talks
had expanded considerably.
Editor Virginio Gayda, frequent
spokesman for the Italian Foreign
Office, who came to Milan for the
conference, telephoned his Rome
newspaper Il Giornale d'Italia that
the talks had three major objects:
1. A general survey of "the de-
mocracies' encirclement policy" and
Germany's and Italy's "economic,
diplomatic and military means" of
Danzig Quiet
(MP)-The population of Danzig, o-
ject of conflicting German and Polish
claims, apparently was straining
anxiously tonight to avoid incidents
that might be seized by either as an
excuse to occupy the territory.
Both Poles and Germans in the
Free City seemed to share that uneasy
state of mind with large forces of
German troops on one border and of
Poland mobilized on the other.
'The main German troop concentra-
tion was understood to be at Elbing,
in East Prussia, about six miles from
the frontier and about eight miles
from Danzig proper. Across the bay
is the German naval base at Pillau,
East Prussia.

League Exhibit
To Display Art
Students' Work
Fine Arts Group Opens
Tenth Annual Display'
Of Sculpture Work
Climaxing months of work in the
art studios on the fourth floor of
University Hall, students of Prof.
Avard Fairbanks of the department
of fine arts will open their tenth an-
nual ehibit of sculptures tomorrow
evening in the League.
The ehibition will be opened by
a dinner and reception at 6:30 p.m.
in the League. President Ruthven
and Prof. John G. Winter, director of
the Institute of Fine Arts will speak,
and the reception of guests will be
held by Prof. and Mrs. Winters after
the dinner.
The exhibited subjects, ranging
from dancing figures to great horned
owls, were modelled by students from
several schools and colleges in the
Much of the work by the students,
Professor Fairbanks emphasized, was
done outside of regular class time.
The subject was first modelled in
miniature, after which a framework
and full-sized model was patterned.
The final plaster cast was then made-
of the plaster model.
Speaking of the ideal toward which'
the arts should be striving, Professor
Fairbanks stated that artists should'
attempt to reflect their own and con--
temporary thought in their own crea-
tions, rather to try to model their
works after those of past artists. With
this in mind, Professor Fairbanks
has encouraged his student to ex-
press and mold their own sentiments
and interpretations.
Several works by Professor Fair-
banks will also be shown.E

Dr. Arie is a student of Jewish prob-

During the World War Dr. Arie served
as judge with the rank of captain and
received four medals for distinguished
service. After the war he became a

Italy Approves
Arming Aalands
HELSINFORS, Finland, May 6.-
(N)-Italy was reported today to have
joined Britain and Germany in ap-
proving a proposal by Sweden and
Finland to fortify the autonomous
Aalands, a group of Baltic Sea is-
lands which may vitally influence

Europe's "next war."
Soviet Russia was said heretofore
to have objected to the proposal, con-
:ending that neither Sweden nor Fin-
land was strong enough to defend the
islands against aggression. Seizure
of the group by a power hostile to
Russia would be a menace to Lenin-
grad, her western port.
