Perkins' Proposed Contract To Be
Considered; Seizure Is Indicated
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 6-Soft coal wage negotiations virtually broke
down today and John L. Lewis summoned his 250-man policy committee
to determine the United Mine Workers' future course.
While the mine leader did not say for what specific purpose the com-
mittee was called in, it was not understood that the various offers of the
operators and the proposed contract advanced last week by Secretary of
Labor Perkins will be placed before the group. Lewis had accepted the

Award of five scholarships for the
spring semester was announced yes-
terday by the College of Pharmacy.

academic worl in the previous seme-
ster and the need of the student for
financial aid.
Recipients of the 'scholarships,
which total $435, include: Virginia
Curtiss, a junior from Lake Orion,
$65 from the Pharmacy Scholarship
Aid Fund set up by John Helfman;
Ruth Vevin, Belleville, freshman, and
Wilma G. Smith, Flint, freshman, $65
each from the Harry Helfman Stu-.
dent Aid fund. Miss Smith also was

One hundred dollar awards from
this scholarship were made t Alice

mister Does
Not Intend To
Stop Smoking
MANCHESTER, N. H., April 5-(IP)
-Although he declined to foreswear
the use of tobacco-a condition asked
of each applicant-the Rev. Robert
G. Friend, 28-year old minister, was
admitted today to membership in
the New Hampshire Methoelist Con-
"I do not intend to refrain from
smoking unless it becomes clearly
evident that the cause of Christ is
being damaged," Mr. Friend said.
Yesterday, the conference voted to
reject him but the vote was nullified
by Bishop Lewis O. Hartman, presid-
ing, because a layman had participat-
ed in the discussion.
Today's vote was taken in execu-
tive session, and no explanation of
the change in balloting was announc-
In a written statement on the
question of smoking, Mr. Friend told
the conference:
"Smoking with me has never
been a question of 'morality' as
many insist. It has been purely a
personal question of its effect on
my health and pocketbook. It is
true that the use of tobacco by a
minister affects those who are yet
steeped in the anti-dancing, anti-
card playing type of ethics. But
even here, I suspect that the prop-
er approach is the rational one bas-
ed- on health considerations, rather
than the 'moral' one based on sup-
posed guilt and sin.
Ziegler Urges
Road Revision
Charles M. Ziegler, state highway
commissioner, is seeking unanimous
recommendation by Ann Arbor
groups for the relocation of highway
US-12, according to a letter received
by the council from Fred C. Perry,
city clerk.
Recognizing that preliminary work
has already been begun on the pro-
posed location, approved by the city's
representatives at Lansing, Ziegler
urged immediate action to determine
whether or not the route is satisfac-

tory to all groups in Ann Arbor.
Fiance Director's
Job May Be Created
The position of finance director f6r
the city of Ann Arbor may be created,

The committee would have to pass
upon any new contract, as it did the
original 18 demands of Lewis on
February 26.
Meanwhile, the operators said
they will not attend the scheduled
resumption of negotiations Satur-

. .calls policy committee.
day morning. They arranged to
report a stalemate to the War Labor
Board at 3:30 p. m. tomorrow, the
hour fixedt by the board.
Lewis, who had indicated earlier
he would not join in that report to
the board, let it be known that ,he
felt the board had taken notice of the
fact that the negotiations still were
formally underway at 10:00 a. m. to-
morrow. Without committing him-
self, Lewis hinted that he would ap-
pear before the board, or send a rep-
resentative, for the afternoon meet-
ing with the WLB.
All indications pointed to govern-
ment seizure of mines-at least those
affected by wildcat strikes-to pre-
vent further harm to the war effort.
Error Weakens
US. Statement
Germani Translation
Misses Full Effect
An error in translation weakened
the significance of Gen. Eisenhow-
er's first occupation proclamation for
German listeners in occupied zones,
Dr. Werner Striedieck, of the German
department, pointed out.
The proclamation, printed in Ger-
man and English, read, "The Allied
Forces under my command have now
entered Germany. We come as con-
querors but not as oppressors." The
translation, "Wir kommen als em
siegreichen Herr - " carries a
much milder connotation for the
German reader, Dr. Striedieck ex-
plained, meaning merely, "We come
as a victorious army."

Petitioning for the seven top posi-
tions on Assembly Council for next
year will end at noon today, it was
announced by Florene Wikins, As-
sembly president.
Petitions may be obtained in the

House Defeatls
B ill ToCreate
Extra Grades
LANSING, April 6 - (P) - After
hearing a warning of a "taxpayers'
rebellion" if government expenses
continue to mount, the house of rep-
resentatives today defeated by a vote
of 11 to 65 a bill permitting schools
to establish 13th and 14th grades.
Rep. John P. Espie, eagle Republi-
can and chairman of the Ways and
Means Committee, told the legislature
that "cities' tell us they can't take
care of the expenses they have now,
and the burden of maintaining the
extra grades undoubtedly would fall
on the state."
"This school structure has to stop
some place," Espie said. "We have
to struggle now to support 12 grades.
He predicted that by 1955 the legis-
lature would be asked to appropriate
$100,000,000 for school aid, and that
"if we as a legislature continue to
increase this tax load, we'll have a
taxpayers' rebellion."

Speaker at the April 12 meeting of
the Student Branch of the American
Institute of Electrical Engineers will
be Reid L. Rayner, transmission
maintenance engineer ofrthe Michi-
gan Bell Telephone Company.,
Mr. Rayner will speak on "Tele-
phone Carrier Systems," illustrating
his speech with a movie entitled "The
