CIO Union
Allis Strike
Decree Of Labor Opposes
Government's Request
To Reopen Company
Workers Will Meet
To Act On Tie-Up
MILWAUKEE, March 26.-()-
The strike at the Allis-Chalmers
Manufapturing Company will "go on"
until the union membership votes
otherwise, Harold Christoffel, Presi-
dent of the CIO United Automobile
Workers local at the plant, declared
He issued his statement in connec-
tion with a request issued at Wash-
ington by Secretary Knox and De-
fense Chief William Knudsen that
the company reopen its plant im-
mediately and that the union co-
operate fully.
r Christoffel said that a meeting of
the union membership had been
called for Saturday morning "to act
on the entire strike situation."
If the company attempts too call
the union membership back to work
before that time, the union will not
heed its call, Christoffel said.
He declared that the plant could be
reopened by the Office of Production
Management in Washington.
The proposal was understood to
have provided for the seting up of
an impartial referee to arbitrate in
plant disputes.
The government called upon the
strike-bound Allis Chalmers plant
and its employes Tuesday to resume
operations on the ground that the
64-day old walkout was "vitally af-
fecting the delivery of Navy orders."
A tie-up of three big New York
shipyards of the Bethlehem Steel
Company was threatened when the
CIO Union' of Marine and Shipbuild-
ing Workers called a meeting for
tomorrow to vote on the question of
an immediate strike.
Some 5,000 men are employed in
the yards and the union claims to
be the bargaining agent for 90 per
cent of them: The yards are working
up to capacity on orders for American
and foreign ships.

nent laborite, Clayton Fountain, will
speak on "Labor's Stake in the War"
at 8 p.m. today in the North Lounge
of the Union in a lecture sponsored;
by the American Student Defense
Fountain will emphasize the im-
portance of the outcome of the war
to workers of the nation, and will
point out what labor as a group is
doing to help in the national defense
program. The problem of how to
aid Britain and still maintain demo-
cracy at home will also be considered.
Active in the labor movement for
years, Fountain is on the executive
council of the Michigan Labor Non-
Partisan League, the staff of the
UAW-CIO News-and is a member of

Jim Skinner Nears
New World Record
Matt Mann's "Dress Rehearsal"
went off without a hitch last night.
Before a small gathering of swim
fans and the Northwestern tank
team, Matt sent his charges through
their paces in a final tune-up before
taking off for East Lansing and the
National Collegiates this afternoon.
The Wildcats helped the Wolver-
ines through the last inspection while
absorbing a 54%/ to 29% defeat in
the last dual meet of the season-a
meet that was far from thrilling but
very revealing.
In the first place, Matt found out
just how "hot" his star breaststroker,
Jim Skinner, really is as the Big Ten
champ came within a hair of shatter-
ing Dick Hough's world record for the
200 yard distance.
Skinner powered his way to a
2:22.5 time, just five-tenths of a
second over the National Collegiate
mark set by Hough in the Michigan
pool in 1939.
In addition, Matt's 400 yard free
style relay quartet served warning to
Yale that they're going to be mighty
hard to beat as tiey churned out a
new pool record of 3:30.2-less than
three seconds off the Eli's world mark
of 3:27.7.
Charley Barker's anchor leg of
:52 flat paced the team with JackI
Patten leading off with a :53.2 clock-
ing, Dobby Burton sped his hundred
yards in :52.3 and Gus Sharemet was
timed in :52.7.
Those were the eye-openers in a
meet that saw Northwestern's un-
defeated captain, Tom Powell, edge
out Jack Wolin off the high board
by 17 points and Dick Fahrback hang,
up a double victory in the 50 and 100
yard sprints.
Michigan's Gus Sharemet hit the
winning groove once again as Mann's
lone entry in the 220 free style event.

today in the Rackham Amphitheatre,
under the auspices of the anthropol-
ogy department.
Mr. Martin will describe his exca-
vation of two Basket Maker villages
which he excavated in 1939 in South-
western Colorado. The Basket Mak-
ers, who were the first agriculturists
of the Southwest, possessed a crude
culture that eventually influenced the
great Pueblo society of Chaco Can-
yon and the Cliff Dwellers of Mesa
Verde. Previously to acting as chief
curator of the Department of Archae-
ology at the Field Museum, Mr. Mar-
tin served at the State Historical
Museum of Colorado and the Car-
negie Institute.
He has made several archaeologi-
cal field trips to Yucatan, but his!

western Colorado and in Western
New Mexico.

Violent Strife Witnessed
In Sarajevo, Location
Of World War Spark
U.S. Plans Answer
To Blockade Threat
BELGRADE, Yugoslavia, March 26.
-(M)-This capital and the Bosnian
city of Sarajevo, where a student as-
sassin touched off the last great war,
were the 'scenes tonight of violent
street riots led largely by students
inflamed against Yugoslavia's new
membership in the Axis.
In Sarajevo, where Gavail'o Prinzip
assassinated Archduke Franz Ferdi-
nand of Austria-Hungary in 1914,
more than 1,000 rioters battled with
police who tried to put down demon-
strations against Germany. The fight
started when 200 theological students
paraded, singing old Slavic hymns
and crying out against Germany.
In Belgrade, police battled with
rioters in at least eight seperate
points, making many arrests, nota-
bly among dissident students and the
reinvigorated Comitaji of old-time
Serbian revolutionaries.
Police raided homes of many citi-
zens suspected of sympathy for Bri-
tain and the United States, and there
were unnumbered secret arrests dur-
ing the day which failed to prevent
the outbreaks of the night,
Vice-premier Vladimir Macek hur-
ried to Zagreb to try to placate lead-
ers of the Independent Democratie
Party, who are said to have ordered
all their members to resign from lo-
cal governments of Croatia in pro-
test against Tuesday's capitulation
to the Axis.
The Yugoslav temper was height-
ened by a radio broadcast in German
that Nazi troops would enter the
country to "protect Yugoslav .inde-
pendence" under the Vienna Treaty
terms if the demonstrations contin-
ued. The station was believed to be
a "bootleg" transmitter.
U.S. Plans Answer
To Blockade Threat
WASHINGTON, March 26-(A )-
An American answer to Germany's
extension of .her sea blockade to the
very border line of the Western Hem-
isphere, if not actually across it, was
in preparation tonight.
Whether it would take the form of
a warning to Germany or more decis-
ive measures to keep hostile opera-
tions out of hemisphere waters, of-
ficials would not say until they had
completed a study of all aspects of
the problem.
Sumner Welles, acting Secretary
of State, said the whole question was
under consideration and he probably
would make a statement in a day or
German explanations that' the
blockade against Britain was extend-
ed to include Iceland because Ameri-
can ships had been unloading supplies
there for transshipment to England
were disputed by officials here.
The Maritime Commission declared
that no American,, ships had been
going to Iceland. Denmark's sister
kingdom which was occupie by Brit-
sh troops last sumier soon after
