?TERIA FIGHTER:

ing a dispute in which a plant pro-
tection man was reported injured in
the aircraft building of the Ford
Motor Company's Rouge plant today,
the company warned the United Au-
tomobile Workers (CIO) that if "ri-
otous methods"eare pursued, "the
company can see no object in con-
tinuing" its contract with the union.
The UAW-CIO holds a closed shop
contract with the Ford Company, in-
cluding a provision for check-off of
union dues.
A Ford spokesman said 250 work-
ers angered by disciplinary action
Couple Who Met
At USO To Wed
Miss Betty Lou King of Ann Arbor
and Cpl. Ed O. Lock of Co. E, of
Brooklyn, who met Dec. 11 on the
opening night at the USO, will be
married tomorrow in the First Pres-
byterian Church.
The prospective groom will also
celebrate his 22nd birthday tomor-
row. Miss King, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. William King of 216 S. Ingalls,
is 21.
"I thinkbthe USO is pretty swell. I
liked it before, but I like it even
better now," Cpl. Lock said.
"I was a junior hostesses at the
Kalamazoo USO for over two years
before coming to Ann Arbor and have
been a hostess here ever since the
tTSO was opened in Harris Hall.
Naturally I think the USO is pretty
wonderful and I don't think coeds
fullyrappreciate it," Miss King stated.

After a check-up, Ford officials to-
night reported four sets of reports,
including labor records kept for sub-
mission to government officials, were
missing from the office after the dis-
turbance. They said the building isi
the property of the government.
Abtlon Is Clarifiedr
The Ford spokesman said the dis-
ciplinary action involved discharge
of one worker for striking a foreman,
and one-day suspensions given two
other employes for second violations
of a no-smoking rule.
Joseph Twyman, president of Local
600, UAW-CIO, referring to the ac-
tion against all three as discharges,
said two men found smoking in a lav-
atory, were Marine veterans of World
War II who had medical discharges
and "need a cigarette once in a
while."
Treatment Is Inhuman
"While the union does not con-
done acts of violence or violations of
grievance procedure," he added, "the
incident in the aircraft unit was the
spoittaneous reaction of the rank and
file against te inhuman anddicta-
torial treatment of the veterans of
this war."
The company in a statement
commented: "Regardless of who was
involved, there is a grievance pro-
cedure here agreed upon between the;
union and the company whereby all
such matters can be settled amicably.
If the union and its membership per-
sists in circumventing this establish-
ed procedure by riotous methods, the
company can see no object in con-
tinuing the contract."

DEVELOPMENT OF WEAPONS SHOWN:

Firearms Are Exhibited at Museum

-a-

MICHIGAN
Today through Saturday
ON THE STAGE

Firearms of every description-
ranging from ancient weapons to
modern automatic arms-are now on
special exhibition in the Museum of
Art and Archeology in Newberry
Hall.
The collection which includes more
than 600 pieces of equipment was
given to the University last fall by
Mrs. A. G. Cummer in honor of her
husband.
Known as the Arthur G. C-ummer
Memorial Collection of Arms, the
exhibition will be open to the public
through March 19.
Cummer long fancied himself a

collector of arms and in his lifetime
gathered his specimens from all over
the world.
Interest in Small Arms
His special interest lay in small.
arms and a special feature of the col-
lection shows the development of the
pistol.
Models of the outmoded matchlock
and shell lock pistolqm the flintlock
and percussion arms are on display
and picture the scientific -develop-
ment of the modern pistol.
Old Italian and English models
whose histories include numberless

duels of honor are on exhibition. The
Italian models are noted for their in-
tricate carving and inlay work.
Europe's favorite weapon for war
and hunting in the 1300's, the cross-
bow, occupies a prominent place in
the collection.
Weapons Tell Story
Daggers, pistols, bow knives, and
bayonets tell the story 6f life in the
middle ages. One odd piece that was
the private 'persuader' of a medieval
French landlord combines brass
knuckles, pistol, and bayonet in one
weapon.
