Relations in Future
DETROIT, Jan. 3.-(P)-A three-
man panel of the War Labor Board
began hearing here today a labor
dispute whose settlement may well
blueprint the pattern of manage-
ment-labor relations in this area for
the duration of the war.
The dispute is that between Gen-
eral Motors Corp. and the United
Automobile Workers (CIO) and in-
volves such issues as the union's de-
mand for cost-of-living increases and
a 48-hour guaranteed work week and
the corporation's insistence that un-
ion maintenance of membership be
eliminated from the contract and
that the union abandon its opposi-
tion to incentive methods of pay.
The corporation, in a statement
issued coincident with the opening of
the hearing asserted that compliance
with the union's economic demands
would increase wage costs of Gen-
eral Motors' war production more
than $400,000,000 a year, and raise
the average factory wage per factory
employe to $4,200, against a 1943
average of $3,000 annually.
Many of the issues presented in
present contract renewal dispute
een the United Automobile
orkers (CI) and General Motors
hiave been raised in similar cases
handled by the regional War Labor
Ruling on a dispute between the
union and the Briggs Manufacturing
Qo. last week the regional board de-
nied a demand for a guaranteed 48
hour work week or 48 hours pay and
also for an industry-wide stabiliza-
tion agreement.
The regional board termed the de-
mand for a guaranteed 48-hour week
as one looking forward to the end of
the war.
Russian Relief
Sets 1944 Goal
The national committee of the
Russian War Fund has announced
through Prof. John L. Brumm, chair-
man of the Ann Arbor division of the
group, that the goal for 1944 will be
$21,000,000 worth of relief supplies.
Of this approximately $9,000,000
will be given by the American people
through the War Chest. The goal for
the new year is 30 per cent greater
than that of last year.
The local.committee is asking the
people to contribute clothing, watch-
es, seeds, medical textbooks and to
form sewing and knitting groups. The
supplies should be turned in at the
Russian Relief Room at the Univer-
sity Hospital.
Several million families will be
asked all over the country to make
emergency kits which will contain
food, medical supplies and household
supplies from their own homes. The
Soviet Red Cross has announced that
there is a desperate need for these
kits and it is hoped that they will
help to make good will between the
individual people of the two coun-

Union Plays Important War Role

New Army Psychiatric Plan
Developed by Dr. Waggoner

ji A w DF airidesignled to t iS
cover more accurately emotional anid
psychiatric misfits at Army induc-
tion centers has been developed by
Dr. R. W. Waggoner, director of the
Neuropsychiatric Institute of the Uni-
versity and is being put into opera-
tion all over the country.
The increasing number of dis-
charges from the armed forces at-
tributable to psychological causes
prompted Selective Service officials to
investigate the "matter more thor-
oughly last summer,-
Appointed Consultant
Dr. Waggoner was recently ap-
pointed psychiatric consultant to the
Director of Selective Service and is
directing the new testing program.
The new program known as "The
Medical Survey Program," employs
school records and social and institu-
tional reports. It attempts to discover
possible psychological ailments be-
fore the prospective serviceman goes
to the induction cehter.
Four distinct savings are expected
to accrue from the new method which
screens out young men whose minds
Post-War Council
To Meet in Union
"Are Wars Inevitable?" is the topic
of a lecture to be given by Prof. L. A.
White of the anthropology depart-
ment at 7:45 p.m. tomorrow in Rm.
316 of the Union.
The Post-War Council is sponsor-
ing this speech as one of its regular
weekly public meetings on post-war
issues. There will be a question peri-
od after the lecture.
Discussion will center around the
following outline: 1) The difference
between a popular and a scientific
inquiry into the causes of war; 2)
War as a natural phenomenon or as
an expression of free will: and 3) The
possibility of eliminating war.
Help Shortage Critical
At St. Joseph's Hospital
An extremely critical help shortage
at St. Joseph's Hospital was described
yesterday by Sister Phillipa, per-
sonnel supervisor.
"Ward helpers, tray carriers and
persons interested in working in the
operating linen room will be paid
$.50 to $.55 per hour," she said.
Volunteer nurses aides are also bad-
ly needed. Workers may report to the
front office of the hospital for in-
structions or call 2-3411 for informa-

ficient iitary service.
Selects Rest soldiers!
1) It gives the Army the mtin who
will make the best soldiers.
2) It reserves for society those men
who might better fit into the pattern
of war work.
3) It saves the individual from en-
during months and in some cases
years of maladjusted living.
4) It means a money saving to
the tax payer who paid an average
of $30,000 to take care of every men-
tally ill soldier after the last war. To
whatever degree the new system cuts
down the number of nervous cases
it means a tax saving.

which was given by the company,
and from "Oklahoma."
Attendance at the ceremony will
be by invitation only.
The men will receive certificates
from the University giving them cre-
dit for the work done here.
After the graduation exercises the
entire company will go on furlough.
The May class will return here to
continue their course while the Jan-
uary class will go to an advanced
base for officer candidate training.
At the time that the May class re-
turns from furlough, a new class will
arrive. At this time the company will
be expanded.
Co. A Grateful
To Ann Arbor
"On behalf of the men of Co. A
who are graduating I would like to
thank all the people in Ann Arbor
who have helped to make their stay
here a pleasant and profitable one,"
Capt. George G. Spence, command-
ing officer of the company said.
"Special thanks should go to the
churches of Ann Arbor, Dr. Edward
Blakeman, chairman of the chaplain
committee, Rev. Loucks, company
chaplain, the Ann Arbor chairman
of commerce and to Warren Cook,
head of the county bond drive, for
the help they have given the com-
pany," he said.
"We would like also to thank-MrM.
Ethel J. Hastings, secretary to the
business office of the University, Col.
Frederick C. Rogers, Mai. J. P. War-
ner, The Daily and the Ann Arbor
News for their cooperation in every
project the company has attempted"
Capt. Spence stated.

With the campus virtually "taken
over" by olive drab and navy blue,
the Michigan Union, traditional cam-
pus center for men only, has gone
all-out in providing facilities for Uni-
versity service trainees.
The Union ballroom, former set-
ting for regular Friday and Saturday
night dances to the music of Bill
Sawyer's band, has now been con-
verted into a mess hall, serving 700
Army ASTP students. The main
kitchen is being used. as a cafeteria
counter, and the small ballroom and
terrace have also been converted into
mess halls.
The first floor main dining room,
crowded even in normal times, is at
present being used as an officers'

mess hall for the noon and night
meals. The regular Union staff is
carrying the full load of the work of
feeding the Army and Navy men as
no Army or Navy personnel are em-
ployed in the Union kitchens.
Units Occupy Rooms
Most of the Union rooms, in past
years quarters for visiting alumni
and guests, are now being occupied
by two special service units-the
naval architecture unit and the Army
civil affairs unit. Because there are
so few rooms remaining, visitors are
likely to find themselves on a long
waiting list.
Third floor rooms, previously used
for banquets and campus meetings,

A native ofT'Xas, Capt. Cook was
graduated a year ago last summer
from the Army Navigation School at
Kelly Fiell. He was with the first
group of heavy bonibers to reach Eng-

pated in the first all-American raid
over Germany. Transferred to Africa,
he was with the first group of heavy
bombers which fought Rommel.

pool is still available to all Union
members from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m.
Thursday night mixed swimming has
had to be discontinued.
Facilities Widely Used
A quick walk through the two main
lobbies, always crowded, will prove
that servicemen have been quick to
make use of Union facilities. The
second floor billiard room and the
cafeteria, where servicemen stop in
to eat a bite between classes, are
especially popular. The cafeteria also
is used by Army language groups as
a general meeting place to hold con-
versational practice.
The Union main desk,long a cen-
ter of campus information, continues
to offer its many services. Approxi-
mately $75 worth of postage stamps
are sold each day at the desk. The
Union barber shop also functions at
full capacity. The Pendleton Library
on the second floor serves as a recre-
ational reading room for servicemen
with current issues of most maga-
zines available.

Although many of the men of
Company G did not know until yes-
terday that they would be the only
ASTP company not on furlough this
week, they do not feel sad because
they have just returned from a fur-
When asked how it felt to be the
only company on campus many re-
plied, "I'm indifferent."
"It won't make much difference to
me," replied another, "for I never
see anyone out of my company, since
I spend all of my time at the medical
school, the hospital, and my barracks.
I don't have much time to notice any-
thing else."
