Peace in UMW Dispute Expected


Pan-American Ball To Be Saturday'


Prof Hobbs
Retains Polar
Society Post

Believe Contract Can Be'
Agreed Upon Tomorrowj


Operators, Miners Think Wage
Will Be Reached Without U.S.


Professor Emeritus William H.
Hobbs of the Department of Geology
was re-elected to the executive board
of the American Polar Society at the
spring meeting of the organization at
the American Museum of Natural
History in New York, August Howard,
secretary of the society, announced
The society was founded ten years
ago as a clearing house on polar mat-
ters and to band together those in-
terested in polar exploration and the
sciences related to it. It has mem-
bers in all parts of the United States
and in 14 foreign countries, with
headquarters at the American Mu-
seum of Natural History in New York.
Prof. Hobbs directed the Univer-
sity's Greenland expedition in 1926-
30, and made a special study of the
wind-meteorological conditions of
Greenland and the so-called "north
pole of the winds." He is the author
of many polar works.
Newly elected president of the so-
ciety is Judge Charles H. Stoll, co-
leader of the Stoll-McCracken Siber-
ian Arctic Expedition in 1928 for the
American Museum of Natural History.

By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 7-Soft coal producers and miners agreed sud-
denly today that chances are good they can settle their wage dispute
without government intervention.
Chairman Ezra Van Horn of the conference of operators and the United
Mine Workers told reporters "we have the belief" that a contract can be
agreed to Monday. Van Horn is an operator.

'Buying Spree'
Is Foreseen
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, April 7--Anticipating a
continued "buying spree" by Detroit-
ers visiting well-stocked stores across
the border in Windsor, Ont., the
customs service here is adding 25
new inspectors to its staff.
In addition to their usual practice
of collecting duty on Canadian arti-
cles brought across the border, the
customs men collect ration stamps or
points for such articles as are ration-
ed in this country. With thousands
of Detroit residents shopping in
Windsor this has multiplied the work
for the border inspectors.

Lewis Makes Statement
K. C. Adams of the UMW journal
said in a statement on behalf of John
L. Lewis, Union President:
Mr. Lewis shares the optimistic
prophecies. He feels, like Mr. Van
Horn, that the industry should of its
own accord adjudicate its controver-
The conference sent a letter to the
War Labor Board saying much the
same thing as Van Horn's statement
to the press. The letter spoke of a
belief that it may be possible by Mon-
day night, April 9, to reach an agree-
ment, at least in principle, on all con-
controversial points."
WLB Prepared To Move
It promised the WLB that the con-
ference would advise "not later than
Monday evening whether or not an
agreement has been reached."
If the controversy is not settled
soon, the WLB is prepared to move in
on the dispute. Today's developments,
however, took immediate emphasis
off prospects that the government
might seize idle coal mines. The solid
fuels administration estimated that
the wave of unauthorized strikes since
Sunday has cost the country more
than a million tons of coal in Penn-
sylvania alone.
Contract Expired
The old contract expired a week
ago tonight but Lewis agreed to a
30-day extension. For more than five
weeks the operators and miners have
been negotiating for a new one.
Interior Secretary Ickes, as Solid
Fuels Administrator, called in mid-
week for immediate seizure of the
mines, without waiting to see whether
the disputants can get together. He
said the cost to the war effort per-
mitted not one day's delay.

Senate, ouse
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, April 7-Arrange-I
ments are about coinplece for a two-
way test in Congress, coincident with
the United Nations San Francisco
conference, on legislation dealing
with America's participation in glo-
bal organi:;ation and cooperation.
Administrationists privately ac-
knowledge they are gloomy over the
prospects of getting what they want.
While the Senate has exclusive
jurisdiction in the ratification of
treaties, the first trial-runs for
bills Lzaring on international co-
operation will be made in the
House. That lzody will be the first
to act or these far-reaching non-
treaty measures:
1. Ratification of the Bretton
Woods agreements which came out
of a meeting of representatives of
44 nations. These agreements - not
in the form of treaties - are intend-
ed by their sponsors to end economic
warfare bythe establishment of an
international bank for reconstruction
iand development and a separate in-
ternational currency stabilization
2. Extension of the reciprocal trade
authority for three years, with an
amendment to the 1934 act giving
the President broad additional pow-
ers to reduce tariffs, some as much
as 75 percent under the Hawley -
Smoot Tariff Act of 1930.
Chairman Spence (D-Ky) of
the House banking committee to-
day emphatically denied rumors
arouid Washington that coirmit-
tee hearings on legislation ratify-
ing Bretton Woods, opened early in
March, might be postpaned until
after the United Nations Confer-
enee which opens April 25. The
hearings have been suspend#d dur-
ing the House Easter recess.

APRIL 8, 1945

service industries would
take up this slack, but some
3,500 returning servicemen
will provide a surplus man-
power reserve which will
have to be relocated, either
in other areas or in more
new place of employment,
the survey shows. Women
may expect a forty per cent
increase in employment op-
portunities over pre-war,
levels, the study predicts.
Although most employers
plan to reduce the present
proportion of women work-
ers to men, all service in-
dustries report plans to
hire more women than be-
fore the war. Persons aged
65 and over may gain as
much as nineteen per cent
in jobs available, mostly in
professional service and re-
tail and wholesale trade.
Post-war opportunities for
non-white workers will be
approximately doubled, the
survey indicated. Although
the results and conclusions
stated probably will not
apply to other communi-
ties, because of the pres-
ence of the University in
Ann Arbor and other fac-
tors tending to increase the
ratio of service to manu-
facturing industries, it is

workout of the six-weeks
practice session. Wet
weather prevented the
squad from holding its first
active drill. Coach Munn
is subbing for Head Coach
H. 0. (Fritz) Crisler who
is overseas with an Army
Specialist Service Unit.
Among the 70 aspirants
were five letter-winners
from last fall's eleven
which finished second in
the Western Conference.
The returning men are
George Burg, Harold Watts,
John Lintol, Jerry Briel-
maier, and Cecil Freihof-
er, all linemen. Burg play-
ed through the 1944 season
asa first string guard while
Watts and Lintol Alternat-
ed at center. Brielmaier
and Freihofer were reserves
at tackle and end, respect-
ively. Among the more
highly touted newcomers
present at the drill were
Jim Foltz, a marine trainee
and former all-state half-
back from Toledo; Ed
Trillx, a 6 ft. 200-pound
tackle from Gary, Ind.,'
home of Tom Harmon; and
Arnold Pohs, 5 ft. 10 in.
185- pound halfback from
City College of New York.
Backfield Coach Earl Mar-

line, the National Collegi-
ate Football Rules Com-
mittee decided. In addition
the college gridiron rule
makers decided that in fu-
ture a substitute may re-
port to any official on the
field; made the elbow-block
definite illegal and revised
the center's stance so that
none of his body extends
beyond the forward point
of the ball. In adopting the
unrestricted forward pass,
the collegians will follow
the style of the pros. Until
now, a college passer had
to be five yards behind the
line of scrimmage. The re-
vamped substitution rule
costs the field captain his
right to reject the substi-
tute. The coach assumes
all responsibility for the
legality of the change. The
elbow-block, which came
into prominence with the
T-formation was elimin-
ated by changing the rule
so that a player must have
his hands and arms pressed
against his own body when
has been granted by the
War Department to Colonel
Edward H. Young, Judge
