Gov. Fitzgerald
Finishes Draft
for tabor Bill
Measure To Be Presented
To Legislature Today;
Sets UpLabor Board
LANSING, Jan. 24-(P)-Governor
Fitzgerald completed the draft of a
labor relations bill today for intro-
duction in the Legislature, but de-
clined to disclose its contents until
he has presented it to the labor com-
mittees of the House and Senate to-
morrow morning.
He disclosed only that it had been
changed in some respects from the
original draft described in his mes-
sage to the Legislature, followlig
conferences with spokesmen for labor
unions and employers' groups. /
The measure would create a labor
relations board -to arbitrate labor
disputes, and attempt to avert strikes.
The board would function in such in-
stances as the threatened state-wide
strike of truck drivers, and internal
controversies such as that now cur-
rent in the United Automobile Work-
ers Union, in which a rival group has
clashed with the policies of Homer
Martin, President,.,
The bill was expected to carry pen-
alty provisions up to $500 fine and a
year's imprisonment for violations,
such as refusal by an employer to
bargain collectively or attempts by
an employer to break by force a strike
that had been called in a legal man-
ner. The measure would forbid sit-
down strikes and strikes not called
in a legal manner.
Republican members of the House
and Senate, who hold a clear voting
majority, promised the Governor at
a caucus today that they would speed
the measure to enactment.
Cramming Authority,
Admires Early Bird
Students who bemoan the prospect
of cramming mtost of their study for
final examinations into the wee hours
of the morning might do well to take
a hint given recently by Rev. D. Wil-
cock of Wellington, South Africa, who
has obtained his M.A. degree in phi-
losophy at -the. age of 77-.
Reverend Wilcock advises students
to cram "between 4 and 7 o'clock in
the morning, taking a cup of coffee
every three-quarters of an hour." He
also claims that a man is never too
old tostudy.
He began the study of philosophy
when he was 40 years old, and two
years later passed his B.A. examina-

To help foreign students acquire
the American -manner of expression,
classes in speech are being conducted,
each Tuesday and Thursday evenings
at the International Center by Miss
L. Adeline Pierce, Grad., and Mr.
Arthur Secord of the speech depart-
The exercises used for the develop-
ment of the processes characteristic
of American speech are based upon
the :theory that the fundamental
auditory differnees in the various
languages are the melody and rhythm
as expressed in the accent and in the
articulation of vowels and conson-
One -of the characteristics of
foreign speech noted by Miss Pierce
are that the Chinese students in their
own language actually change the
meaning of a word by change in pitch
rather than changing the emotional
content as in English.
Miss Pierce also noticed that the
Chinese do not have an "R" in their
speech structure, and substitute the
"L". The sound discrimination be-
tween the long "I" and short "I",
has not been made in their language,
Miss Pierce said. The Chinese would
use "deed" instead of "did." The lat-
ter change is also characteristic of
.Spanish and Italian students in the

Fluid' Drive On Automobiles


Brings Sm00t
A smoother ride and flexibility of
control are the advantages claimed
for a new "fluid drive" that is being
introduced to the American passen-
ger car on one high-priced'car this
The "fluid drive," Prof. Walter E.
Lay of the engineering department
explains, has had considerable suc-
cess in England. This new drive does
away with the conventional mechani-
cal connection between the motor and
the rear wheels. The power is, in-
stead, transmitted through the medi-
um of moving oil.
The essential, mechanism of the
drive is composed of two sets of radi-
al blades within a "doughnut-shaped"
tank or casing filled with low-vis-
cosity oil. One set of blades is at-
tached to the casing which is per-
manently connected to the motor
shaft and rotates with it. The other.
set is free to rotate within the tank
and is fastened to the transmission
drive shaft.

h Ride Lay Says
When the engine turns, the oil is
set . in rotation by the "driving"
blades. The moving oil then trans-
mits the torque to the "driven" set
of blades. This connection is some-
what analgous to a windmill being
driven by a fan..
The transmission of power through
a fluid medium provides a much
smoother ride, since the fluid equal-
izes vibrations from the engine and
any jolts produced when the clutch
is engaged too quickly.
The "fluid drive" also eliminates
the necessity for repeated shifting
when driving in city traffic. With
this arrangement the motor will not
stall if the car is stopped without dis-
engaging the clutch.
This great flexibility of operation
is made possible by slippage between
the "driving" and "driven" blades. At
ordinary driving speeds, the slippage
is small, but in starting or climbing
a hill, the "driving" vanes move con-
sderably-faster than the others.
