LONDON, Nov. 9-0P)--Great Bri- j
tarn tonighgt sought peace for revolt-
ridden Palestine through a plan to
gather Arab and Jewish leadersa
around a London conference table
seeking compromise of their bittert
dispute over Jewish immigration toc
the Holy Land.
The British government discarded u
as unworkable a proposal to solve thet
problem by setting up Arab and Jew-c
ish states.
Disturbed by general Arab unrest
in the Near East and the growing
Jewish refugee problem in Europe,
Britain warned it would impose its
own solution unless the Arabs and
Jews find common ground soon for
burying their differences.
British Position Outlined
Britain's positon was outlined in a
statement of policy issued along with
the Royal Commisson's report on
Palestine. The Commission, headed
by Sir John Woodhead, found imprac-
ticable a plan to divide Palestine
into separate Arab and Jewish states
with Jerusalem and Nazareth remain-
.ng under British mandate along with
.a strip of the coast.
Such a partition plan was advanced
July 8, 1937, by an earlier commis-
siop headed by the late Earl Peel.
The Woodhead Commission indi-
cated partition would not be feasible
because Jewish and Arab interests
were too firmly inter-meshed in the
land where 1,317 persons have been
killed and 1,141 wounded in violende
of the past four months.
Approximately 20,000 British troops
now are attempting to quell rebellious,
Arabs in troubled Palestine.
Plan London Parley
The British Government plans to
call a London conference soon with
Arabs represented by their leaders
both from Palestine and neighboring
Arab nations and Jews by the Jewish
Agency, world Jewish organization
empowered by the League of Nations
to perform such a function.
Government quarters said rejection
of the partition scheme did not rule
out the possibility of setting up Arab*
and Jewish cantons,.or provinces, in
a federated system. Such a plan
would leave Britain in control of theĀ£
strategic country which flanks her
vital Suez Canal route to the Far~
A hint that Jewish immigration to
the "homeland" promised them by the
Balfour Declaration in 1917 might be1
curtailed was contained in the Com-
mission report which said:

The banquet was characterized by'
the lack of any principal speaker for
the evening, presenting instead a
number of introductions of and short
remarks by well known faculty and
fraternity figures. Robert Reid, '39E,
president of the Interfraternity Coun-

Prof. Karl Litzenberg of the Eng-

-Wrecking gangs smashing shop
windows took swift vengeance early
today upon Berlin's jewry for the kill-

Wrecking gangs smashed every

Systematically they proceeded up
and down street after street. On the
main thoroughfares there was not
one shop window of Jewish owned

Positions; City Charter
Amendments Accepted
Final returns from the 36 precincts
of Washtenaw County reveal that the
Republican candidates in Tuesday's
elections piled up majorities of more
than two to one in annexing all 11
county offices, and gained the largest
percentage of the vote that they have
received in any of the five elections
since 1930.
In only one contest, that for prose-
cuting attorney, did the Republican
ticket fail to carry every ene of the
36 precincts. Although Albert J.
Rapp, Republican incumbent, was re-,
elected by a majority of more than
5,000 votes, he lost the fourth and
fifth wards in Ann Arbor, and North-
field Township to Hubert Thompson,
Sheriff Jacob B. Andres, in winning
reelection to his fifth term, polled,
the largest majority, 17,420 votes tol
6,218 for John W. Rane, Democrat.I
Other Republican candidates, County
Clerk Emmet M. Gibb, County Treas-
urer Charles Crittenden, Register of
Deeds Mrs. Katherine W. Skau, and
Drain Commissioner Cornelius W.

All four amendments to the Ann

Van Zeeland, World Economicj
Consultant, Will Speak Tuesday

numic;ea yeaueiuuy.

Paul Van Zeeland. the former
Prime Minister of Belgium, who will
speak here next Tuesday, was dele-!
gated last year by the Governments
of France and Great Britain to solve1
the most perplexing of current inter-'
national problems.
In effect these powers said to Dr.
Van Zeeland: "Consult all the prin-
cipal governments, democratic and
totalitarian alike, and see if you can
devise an economic prescription which
can be administered to the sick
world and put it back, hale and
hearty, on its feet again."
Accordingly, the Belgian medicine
man visited most of the countries on
both sides of the Atlantic, consulting
the heads of the various governments,
interviewing the economic authori-
ties, and surveying the general situa-

His specific recommendations pro-
vide for, the extension of new credit
facilities to set international trade
moving on oiled wheels again. In
order to accomplish this, says Dr. Van
Zeeland, it is necessary to reduce
tariffs, abandon import quotas, and
above all, restore a free interna-
tional monetary system. In his opin-
ion the "Tripartite Declaration" of:
the United States, France, and Eng-1
land of September, 1936 should form
the basis for this restoration of fi-
nancial freedom.
In Dr. Van Zeeland's opinion more
countries should adhere to this dec-
laration: they should agree upon
reciprocal parties for their curren-1
cies and should pledge themselves to
limitvariation from these parties, at'
any rate for periods long enough to

Japan intended to march to the boun-
daries of Burma.
"For the first time, he told the

The silver-haired premier, decked

getter' for peace."
Approving murmurs rolled back
from 900 glittering guests as Cham-
berlain explained: "If we see peace
threatened, we shall use any influence
we may have to save it. If war breaks
out we shall take any means we can
see to stop it."

Blaming the plight of the nation's
railroads on government regulation,
labor pressure, and local taxation,
Prof. John S. Worley, former member
of the Engineering Board. of the

termed reduction of capitalization,
lower taxes and increased working
hours the only solution of the railroad
The problem is not one of public
service, he declared. "Railroads never
furnished better service than they do
today." Rather it is one of insuffi-
ient income. Caught in the vice of.
rising costs and lower rates due to in-
;reased demand, railroads today can-
not meet their operating costs out of
current income.
Back of this present phenomena
looms the long run problem of the
inability of the railroads to readijust
capitalization to a dwindling traffic.
Built in the days before the motor
truck flung its challenge of cheaper
transportation, railroads expanded
plant and operating costs. Today,
with traffic diverted to the motor car,
