C1O Undertakes Organizatio
Of Local Labor In New Drive

Callahan Fingerprinted

Annual French Play Presents
Intricate Production Problems

Ann Arbor industry today appar-
ently faced the most intense organ-
izing drive yet staged. here by the
UAW-CIO, which last night claimed
that "approximately half" the work-
ers in two large local plants-Hoover
Steel Ball and American Broach-
have become UAW members.
An estimated 250 persons, main-
ly Hoover employes, heard James
Morgan, International Representa-
tive of the UAW, declare at the
Masonic Temple that "Hoover wages
still have a long way to go before
they come up to. standard."
He disclosed that an NLRB election
will be held "shortly" at the Broach
to deteriine the bargaining agent
but that meanwhile "organization
must be carried on in all plants with
unstinting energy and diligence."
Morgan charged that local con-
cerns have made determined efforts
to obtain "yellow-dog" contracts.
These, he said, demand that the sig-
hatory worker renounce all claims
for future wage adjustment in return
for an immediate increase.
But he assured the assembly that
the impending problem now is not
one of amicable relations with the
managements but one of labor organ-.
ization. Constructive meetings have
been held with Hoover representa-
tives to air accusations that union
men had been intimidated, he said,
and another meeting will be held at
11 a.m. today to settle the allega-
Referring to a walkout of Hoover
employes Mon'day, Morgan asserted
that at the "amicable settlement"
reached Tuesday it was demonstrat-
ed that the strike was without CIO
The UAW representative firmly
contended that the wage increases
granted during or immediately be-
fore a union drive were unsubtle de-
vices "to buy out the union" and

the workers will not be deceived by
Specific charges of underpay were
levelled at the Broach by Morgan
who claimed grinders in that shop
were being paid approximately one-
third less than identical labor in
UAW-organized plants.
Declaring that strong organizing
activity could settle the whole ques-
tion in Ann Arbor "within one week",
Morgan warned the gathering: "Now
is the time; the CIO will not come
out here every two or three months
to help you. If we succeed, you
will benefit not only in the shop but
outside, where you will be able to put
up an effective fight for such neces-
sities as fair rent, attainable through
the work of CIO rent committees."

War Lecture
To Be Given
Highlighting the month-long can-
cer drive of the Women's Field Army
for the Control of Cancer, S. L. A.
Marshall, war commentator and mili-
tary critic, will speak on "Our Part
in the War Today" at 8:15 p.m. Tues-
day in Hill Auditorium.
The funds from his speech will be
used, along with other receipts from
the campaign, for the research, edu-
cation and cure of cancer. Part of
the money will be donated to the two
local hospitals, and the rest will be
sent to the State and National head-
quarters of the Society.
Marshall, author of several recent
military books and a veteran of
World War I, will give the first pub-
lic lecture ever to be included in the
annual Ann Arbor campaign. Other
features of the drive have included
donations from school children, can-
vassing of the downtown business
districts, and special gifts from wo-
men's clubs.
The cancer drive is a yearly func-
tion of the Women's Field Army of
the American Society for the Control
of Cancer. The main purpose of the
campaign is to raise funds to aid in
the cure of this disease, which is the
nation's second highest cause of
deaths, and to acquaint the public
with the facts pertaining to its symp-
toms, control and prevention.

Plane Crash In Virginia
Kills Crew Of Three I
LANGLEY FIELD, Va., April 16-
(P)-A two-motored Army bomber
crashed into the Chesapeake Bay,
approximately 50 miles north of here,
today on a routine flight with the
loss of its crew of three men.
Langley Field officials said that
neither the plane nor the bodies had
been recovered but that the search
would be continued.

Ann Arbor suffered its second day
of a heat wave yesterday and as a
result police were kept busy chasing
mad dogs, keeping the streets cleared
of ball players, and covering other
assignments resulting from the un-
usually high temperatures.
Clifford Holmes, '44, was bitten on
the left thigh late yesterday by the
airedale mascot of Alpha Delta Phi
fraternity. Police sentenced the ani-
mal to confinement in the "dog
house" for 10 days. Holmes is the
sixth victim of dog bites in two days.
A report was filed with police
that a suspicious looking man was
sitting in thetpark opposite the
Michigan Central depot and was
drawing pictures of the bridge there.
Police investigated the supposed "fifth
columnist" and found that he was an
elderly artist and that he was not

drawing the bridge but was merely
sketching a weeping willow tree.
Later police received another call
from the Michigan Central depot.
This time the complainant stated
that a very tough looking and suspi-
cious man was loitering around the
Railway Express department.uAgain
police investigated and found it was
only a "big Indian" seeking shelter
from the sun. Police sent him home.
Two Merchantmen Sunk
WASHINGTON, April 16.-(P)-
The Navy announced today that a
small Swedish merchant vessel and a
small United States merchant vessel
have been torpedoed off the Atlantic
coast and that survivors have been
landed at an east coast port. No
details were given out here.

Like an iceberg, of which there is t
far more than appears on the sur-
face, the presentation of play in
French and on American campus in-
volves a multitude of problems. 1
Prof. Charles E. Koella, general
director of "La Belle Aventure," will'
testify to the great number of intri-
cate problems which must be ironedI
out before the 36th annual CercleI
Francais play is given April 29 in the'
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
First, a play must be chosen which
is fit for an American audience.
Since French traditions and view-'
points are likely to differ somewhat
from those of the average American,
careful judgment must be exercised
in selecting a play which will be both
Prepa redness
Show Planned
By Boy, Scouts
Demonstrating their preparedness,
the Boy Scouis of the Middle District
(Ann Arbor, Whitmore Lake and Dix-
borough) will participate in a gigan-
tic Boy Scout Preparedness Show at
7:30 p.m., April 22 in the Intramural
Dr. Ross Allen, district commis-
sioner of Boy Scouts, has invited
each troop to prepare its own exhibit
of first aid, emergency and health
equipment. In addition to the exhib-
its, the Scouts will compete in first
aid contests, mass demonstration of
artificial respiration, triangular ban-
daging relays and physical fitness
Highlighting the show will be a
special demonstration by the Emerg-
ency Service Corps. Recently organ-
ized by Dr. Elmer Townsley of the
physical education department, Dr.
Richard Boys of the English depart-
ment and Officer Mayfield of the
Ann Arbor police force, the Emerg-
ency Service Corps admits Boy Scouts
from 15-17 years of age with First
Class Scoutsmanship to membership.
Meetings are held for three hours
every Saturday afternoon in Water-
man Gymnasium, where special in-
struction is given in emergency work.
Offering considerable help in pre-
paration for the show is Alpha Phi
Omega, service fraternity of former
Boy Scouts. Everyone is invited to
attend; admission is free.
Bomber Employe
Goes To Jail Again
(Special to The Daily)
YPSILANTI, April 16.-A bomber
plant employe here can't seem to
keep out of the hands of the police.
Nineteen-year-old Joseph W. Gor-
ham-who was sentenced to spend
two days in jail on April 3 for driv-
ing with a suspended license-yester-
day pleaded guilty to. a charge of
reckless driving and returned to jail
for a second trip.,
Arrested Tuesday night while he
Wvas "thrilling" two young woman
companions by his driving methods,
Gorham couldn't pay a $25 fine im-
posed by Justice Arthur M, Vander-
His first jail sentence caused Gor-
ham to complain because he claimed
he would lose $56 in wages at the
bomber plant. This time his com-
plaint is even louder.

understood and enjoyed by the audi-
e In "La Belle Aventure" Professor
Koella feels he has found the answer.r
The plot concerns an orphaned girl,
ward of .her uncle and aunt, the
Comte and Comtesse d'Eguzon, who
has been betrothed to a man recom-
mended by her aunt. Just as the wed-
ding ceremony is about to start-
with a multitude of guests awaiting
the great moment-complications
appear in the form of young Andre
d'Eguzon, with whom the bride-to-be
shares mutual love.
After the play has been chosen,
there comes selection of the cast.
Since only those fairly well acquain-
ted with the French language are eli-
gible, the choice is considerably re-
stricted. "But luckily," admits Pro-
fessor Koella," "we have good ma-
terial this year."
Before anything can be done about
actual staging, the cast must be given
individual coaching in pronunciation,
diction and intonation. Director Ko-
ella has also taken over this routine.
Pronunciation and diction are diffi-
cult enough to perfect, he claims, but.
intonation is further complicated by
the fact that it is so different in
France from what it is here.
Still acting is only a vision, for
students must first practice typically
French gestures with their lines.
Thus, although the cast of 16 has
been rehearsing since March 6, fin-
ishing touches are still only a vision.
"But by working steadily until the
29th," promises the director, "we
shall have a play that will give the
Ann Arbor audience an evening of
really good entertainment."
Teachers To Meet
The Association of Modern Lan-
guage Teachers of the Centra) West.
and South will meet for its Silver
Jubilee at 3:30 p.m. today and at
9 a.m. tomorrow in the Hotel Stat-

Men's Varsity
Choral Group
To Sing Here
In true barbershop fashion, a quar-
tet from the Men's Varsity Glee Club
will harmonize two old favorites,
"Only a Bird In a Gilded Cage" and
"The Strawberry Blonde," at this
group's spring concert, which will be
held at 8:15 p.m. Thursday, April 23,
in Hill Auditorium.
To make these numbers more ef-
fective, another group from the Glee
Club will do a pantomime to the
songs while the quartet is singing.
This feature will be presented in the
second half of the program when the
audience will be given an oppor-
tunity to engage in group singing of
all the old-fashioned favorites..
In the first half of the concert,
another feature will be presented. At
this time, a dramatized arrangement
of the "Glory Road" will be sung by
the entire club. Special effects will
be gained by the use of spotlights
focused on the various singers.
The group singing, which will be
held in the second part of the pro-
gram, is being arranged in answer to
the many campus demands for an
opportunity to participate in this
type of singing. Since tl'rere will be
no admission charged for this con-
cert, the students who have been
wanting this kind of group singing
will be able to fulfill their desires.
