have taken Villafranca Del Panades,

Radio Stars Voice Threat
Of Nation Wide Strike,
More Than 2,000 Entertainers Promise Quiet Ether
Unless Broadcasting Moguls Grant More Pay;
Eddie Cantor Admits It's Same Old Story

NEW YORK, Jan. 21-(AP)-A pro-
found silence over the nation's radio
airways Was threatened tonight as
2,000 entertainers including radio's
biggest stars awaited a call to strike
for higher wages.
"It is the old, old story that despite
our desire to arrive at an agreement
by negotiation, we must show our
force," said Eddie Cantor, big-eyed
comedian and President of the Ameri-
can Federation of Radio Actors, in
' Among those subject to a strike call,
as members of the Federation, are
Edgar ("Charlie McCarthy") Bergen,
Bing Orosby, Rudy Vallee, Jack Ben-
ny, Phil Baker and many Hollywood
movie stars. Lawrence Tibbett, the
opera singer, and Jascha Heifitz,
violinist, are vice-presidents.
The wage dispute arising between
the A A and the "four-A" American
Association of Advertising Agencies
led the Chicago local to vote unani-
mously in favor of a strike upon or-
ders from the Federation's National
Executive Board.
The New York local had taken simi-
lar action earlier this week, and bal-

loting was scheduled late tonight in
Hollywood and tomorrow in San
In an eleventh-hour move to stave
off the country'sefirst air entertain-
ers' walkout, Charles J. Post, a Fed-
eral Labor Department conciliator,
met in New York with representatives
of the rival camps.
Paul N. Turner, Federation attor-
ney, said there were "no develop-
ments." Nor was there any indica-
tion of an early joint conference. -
A spokesman for the "Four-A" ad-
vertisers said the union's demands
would mean that an actor on a 15-
minute show would get approximately
$185 a week regardless of how minor
his part.
The $185 would comprise the mini-
mum of $25 for 15 minutes, five or
six days a week, plus rehearsal fees.
A few actors participate in as many
as five shows a day, which through
the union scale, would bring their
pay to around $1,000 a week.
The major radio networks, in case
of a strike, planned to fill in the time
with sustaining (non-commercial)
programs, with which the union mem-
bers have no quarrel.

Cagers To 47-32
Wmin Over Iowa
Leads Individual Scoring
With Total Of 17 Points;.
HawkeyesMiss Stephens
IOWA CITY, Ia., Jan. 21 (Special
to The Daily)-Michigan's hithertol
erratic basketball team found a touch
of brilliance here SaturdF'.y night asI
it battled a University of Iowa team'
minus the services of Capt. Ben
Stephens, its scoring ace, and walked
away with a one sided, 47 to 32 victory
over the Hawkeyes.
The loss of Stephens, who was
stricken with an attack of influenza
shortly before game time, coupled
with the brilliant shooting of Tom
Harmon, flashy Michigan sophomore,
spelled defeat for the Hawkeyes.
Harmon scored from every angle on
the completely demoralized Iowa
team and when the game ended he
had managed 17 of Michigan's 47
points on a total of six field goals
and five free throws. Chuck Pink,
Harmon's running mate at forward,
tied for runner up honors in the scor-!
ing with Angie Onapole, Iowa's sopho-
more forward, with 11 points.
It was Harmon who kept the Wol-
verines in the contest as the game
got under way, with Iowa showing
every indication that it meant to win
despite the loss of its scoring star.
Unperturbed by the suddenness
of the Iowa attack, the Michigan
sophomore calmly wheeled in a field
goal and three free throws to keep
his team tied up with the Hawkeyes
at five all. He went on to score two
more field goals and another free
throw during the period, which
eventually ended with the Wolver-
ines leading, by a 22 to 20 score. Ed

Tanker Finds
Of Lost Plane
Huge Airliner Was Missing
On Flight To Bermuda;
Found After Long Search
Boat Reports Fear
Three Others Dead
NEW YORK, Jan. 22 (Sunday)-
(P)-The tanker Esso Baytown re-
norted to the Coast Guard early to-
lay that it had found 10 survivors
out of 13 persons aboard the flying
boat Cavalier which was forced down
at sea between New York and Ber-
Bermuda yesterday. The report said'
three were lost, apparently drowned.
The ten survivors were found cling-
Ing to the wreckage of the battered
Cavalier, which had been forced down
by heavy icing at 1:13 p.m. (EST)
after leaving New York for Bermuda.
Not Questioned
Cold and exhausted by their ten-
hour battle against the waves, the
survivors could not be questioned im-
mediately, the Coast Guard learned.
Names of the survivors were not
known immediately.
The Coast Guard Cutter Cham-
plain which was standing near the
Esso Baytown swept the tossing sea
with its powerful searchlights, trying
to locate the three missing persons.
The report of the rescue from the
SEsso Baytown to the Coast Guard at;
12:20 am. read:
"We picked up10 survivors. These
survivors feel certain the other three
are lost."
Long Search
The Baytown, owned by the Stand-
ard Oil Company of New Jersey, was
the first rescue ship to reach the
scene of the crash of the huge sea-
About a dozen air and surface craft
engaged in a 10-hour search for the
stricken ship, a 20-ton luxurious giant
of the skyways capable of carrying
20- persons.
An $OS several hours after the
Cavalier's takeoff from Port Wash-
ington, Long Island, for Hamilton,
Bermuda, started a parade by air and
sea to the location given by the fly-
ing boat-about 322 miles southeast of
Cape May, N. J.
Coast Guard Cutters, planes, pas-
senger steamers, tankers-U.S. and
Canadian Navy craft, all joined the
rush in an effort to rescue eight pas-
sengers and crew of five. The Cav-
alier's wireless was silenced after
sending one last word: "sinking."
Fire Of Unknown Origin
Causes $1,000 Damages
A fire last night at the home of
Mrs. Olive E. Ferris, 1005 Packard,
that did approximately $1,000 worth
of damage was put out by the local
fire department within 14 minutes
after it had been reported. The or-
igin of the fire that began in the
basement was undetermined .

Gophers Downy
Michigran Six
By 4-0, Score
Three Minnesota Men Hurt
In Penalty-Studded Fray;
Mariucei Is Star Again
Starting out like the proverbial
house on fire, for the first ten minutes
of its game against the Golden
Gophers .of Minnesota last night at
the Coliseum, Michigan's hockey
team showed an unusual amount of
class. However when the gun sounded
the end of sixty minutes of play,
Minnesota had completed-its second,
straight shutout over the Wolverines
with a 4 to 0 score.
Before a capacity crowd of Wolver-
ine fans John Mariucci, star defense
man of the Gophers, took the cheery
and booes that were aimed at
him and retaliated by bouncing the
Wolverine players off the boards and
making one of four tallies which gave
the Gophers a decisive victory.
In the course of the hard fought
battle between the two Brig Ten
schools three Minnesota men were
required to leave the ice for medical
treatment. Starting things offhMari-
ucci received a cut across the eye
which resulted in more tape being
added to his already bandage-hidden
Staving off a Wolverine drive in
the second period, Goalie Falk of
the Gophers was cut in the throat by
a flying skate as he fell to the ice in
making a save. In the closing minutes
of the period Paulsen was cut across
the forehead when he crashed into
Bert Stodden of the Wolverines.
The first score of the gene came
after 18 minutes of play in the first
period. Capt. Ken Anderson took a
pass from Rheinberger in front of
the Wolverine net and the flipped the
puck past "Spike" James.

The policy of appeasement and con-
ciliation to dictators followed by the
present government of England is not
likely to prove successful, but a fear
of dictatorships must not lead de-
mocracies to adopt totalitarian meth-
ods, Prof. John Bell Condliffe,
University Professor of Commerce at
the London School of Econonics, de-
clared in an interview yesterday.
Professor Condliffe will deliver
a University lecture on "The
Breakdown of World Organiza-

the Graduate School Auditorium.
A constructive policy on the part
of the democratic powers in regard to
the dictator nations can be adopted,
he said. A degree of armament
coupled with close understanding and
cooperation among the democratic
nations will do more to counteract

to become involved in the political

quite well understood in Europe, said
Professor CondliiVe, who from 1931
to 1936 was in the Intelligence Serv-
ice of the League and had charge of
the annual World Economic Survey.
But the United States makes great
contributions, he declared, to the non-
political activities of the League. It
is generally recognized that the
League's political activity is at a
standstill, he said, but it carries on
valuable technical activities. These
include its health service, opium
