morning and were "there to keep
traffic moving and not to act as
strike breakers."
At Lansing Governor Kelly said
late today he had conferred by tele-
phone with Mayor Orville Hubbard
of Dearborn and was assured that
Hubbard would "see to it that every
kind of police protection will be given
the Ford Motor Company."
Spokesmen for the company and
the United Automobile Workers
(CIO) professed no knowledge of
what set off the blockade action.
A demonstration in the aircraft
unit last week resulted in discharge
of ten employes and indefinite sus-
pension of ten others.
Rausch, plant superintendent, in
his telegram blamed the blockade on
"a small group of irresponsible union
members most of whom had been
discharged with the consent of the
officers of the UAW-CIO because of
an unauthorized work stoppage."
Mmne. Barzin Speaks
On Undergiround
"In reality the work of the under-
ground is far more dangerous and
secretive than we can possibly imag-
ine from our report through radio
and press," Madame Betty Barzin
said last night in her discussion of
the Belgian underground.
It is interesting to note from her
comprehensive discussion that the
few refugees, soldiers and messengers
to the outside world making the long
trek through occupied France and
hostile Spain \who are "lost on their
way are usually lost in Spain, where
the underground is least effective.
If caught in Spain they are sent to
the Miranda concentration camp,
and are occasionally freed when the
Franco government approaches the
U.S. Embassy in Madrid for a ship-
ment of oil or wheat.
"Perhaps the guiding ideal of the
Belgian underground is that there
shall be no 'third edition' of this last
war," Mme. Barzin concluded.

craft. This device replaces sleeve targets.
Dr. Hs tie To Discucss Belgian
Relations with Europe Today

"A concern today with the prob-
lems of the post-war period does not
represent a diversion of energy from
the main job but is a requirement for
the completion of that job, which is
nothing less than the preservation of
a free society," Clare E. Griffin, pro-
fessor of Business Economics at the
University said in an article on
"Post-war Unemployment" in the
recent issue of the Michigan Alum-
nus Quarterly Review.
Discussing employment in the
post-war world, Prof. Griffin stated,
"In all probability to attain a healthy
economic state, employment will have
to be substantially higher than in
even our best years of the pre-war
"If we do reach and maintain this
level of employment and production
which our labor force, productive
plant and skills would make feasible,
we will, I believe, find it possible to
bear the burden of war debt and to
progress to a substantially higher
standard of living in this country."
Considering the possibility that
this challenge can be met, Prof.
Griffin said that immediately after
the war there is the danger of serious
inflation unless we have a continua-
tion of wartime price controls and
rationing of goods for consumers and
producers, which must be relaxed
gradually in such a manner as to
"stimulate production but avoid in-
"The immediate post-war period
will be crucial in the sense that it
may set the pattern for several years
to come," he continued. "This fact
places heavy responsibility upon bus-
iness and upon government. What
can be done at that time will depend
upon plans that are laid in advance.
In some industries conversion will
require only producing the same or
substantially the same things for
civilians instead of for soldiers.
"In others it will require a shifting
back to pre-war products and in still
others, where plants have been ex-
panded, it will require the production
of new products."
Prof. Griffin advocated planning
by individual businessmen-'grass

roots' planning as distinguished from
'overall' planning" and stated that
"the government also has certain
"No amount of unemployment
compensation that the government
can possibly provide will' be a fair
substitute for a high level ofbproduc-
tive private employment," Prof. Grif-
fin said.
He urges that tax systems
be made now for the prompt termi-
nation of government contracts so
that the necessary funds will be pro-
vided for post-war expansion. He
also advocates the speedy removal of
government owned equipment from
private plants as soon as the war is
"The government should be slow
to extend its activities into fields
presently occupied by piivate efforts
but should be directed to preventing
individuals and groups from them-
selves establishing barriers to the
workings of the free market," Prof.
Griffin continued.
He urges that the tax systems
should be devised which would avoid
directly interfering with the invest-
ment of "venture capital and the
assumption of business risks." Con-
sidering the question of the national
debt he said, "An easy optimism is
not suggested but rather that the
debt-bearing capacity is dependent
upon our national income."

Dr. Jan Frans Hostie, Legal Coun-
sellor in Foreign Affairs to the Bel-
gian Government and lecturer in
Regional Study Programs here, will
discuss Belgium and its relations
with Europe at 4 p.m. today in Room
4, Alumni Memorial Hall for the fifth
program in the present French lec-
ture series.
Represented Belgium at Peace Table
Dr. Hostie, who is from Ghent in
Flanders, represented Belgium at the
Peace Conference of Paris in 1919
in matters of communications and in
the Transport Section of the Eco-
nomic Supreme Council. He was Sec-
retary General of the Central Com-
mission for Navigation on the Rhine
from 1921 to 1937. Since 1920 he has
been connected with the activities
of the League of Nations, especially
in the field of communications, and
is still a member of the Permanent
Legal Committee of the Organization
for Communications and Transit of
the League.
Pleas for Unity
In discussing the lecture he will
give today, "La Belgique et l'Europe
nouvelle," Dr. Hostie said he will
point out that Belgium, Luxumbourg
and the Netherlands should be looked
on as one group and furthermore not
as an exclusively European territory.
For, he said, the col nial territories
of the group are about 75 times
greater than their European terri-
tory. He said he 'will show how there
is a growing link between the Scan-
dinavian countries and the Low


Countries and between Belgium and
Tickets Still On Sale
He said that if there is time he
hopes to discuss the relations be-
tween the Low Countries and France.
In this category he would discuss the
military potentials of these countries,
the feasibility of an inter-Allied com-
mand, the problem of Alsace and
Lorraine and the possibility of a
common policy on the part of these
countries toward Germany.
Tickets for the lecture may be pur-
chased from the Secretary of the
Romance Languages Department or
at the door at the time of the lecture.

Today, Michigan's doctors and nurses
by the hundreds are serving with our
Army and Navy from Alaska to Iran,
from Australia to Italy-bringing back
to health the men who are helping win
Victory for the United Nations. But on
the home front, other thousands of doc-
tors and nurses are fighting doubly hard
to keep their fellow-citizens of Michigan
in good health - doing everything in
their power to prevent or minimize
interruptions in our State's war effort.
In a very real sense the well-being of
all of us in Michigan is in the capable
hands of approximately 6,000 physicians
and surgeons and about 14,000 nurses.
At their disposal are the facilities of 252
hospitals which have beds for nearly
60,000 patients at one time. In an aver-
age year more than 525,000 patients
are admitted to these institutions. To

goes well-deserved credit for the high
standards of medical care prevailing in
our State.
We of the Greyhound Lines pay tribute
to these fellow-citizens of ours who are
doing so much to make our State a finer
place to live in. They're doing a big job
-a vital one. Greyhound's job is quite
different-but vital, too! Providing safe,
convenient transportation service is
particularly important now. By making
near neighbors and good neighbors of
all the communities we serve in Michi-
gan, we are helping unify the war efforts
of this State - keeping them rolling
toward Victory!
