Veteran's Meeting ...
The meeting of the Veteran's Or-

All members and veterans who

The Union swimming pool will be

the Department of Physical Educa-

The Tuesday and Thursday classes

swimmers, and 8:30-9:30 for life sav-

is open swimming until noon.
Open House ...
Residents of Adelia Cheever will
hold an open house after today's
game. Sally Metropolsty, chair-
man, invited everyone to come and
help celebrate homecoming.

Chief of the Security division of the
Detroit Ordinance district, said yes-
terday in a panel discussion before
Michigan editors in the Rackham
Amphitheatre.
This complacency, he stated, has
been brought about by three chief
factors, one being the report of the
continual string of victories in the
favor of the Allies, and another being
the reports of termination of war
contracts and the beginning of peace
time conversion.
He pointed out that the citizen

Slattery Attacks
Supreme Court
tTrial Ruling
LANSING, Nov. 10.--(P)-Counsel
for Francis P. Slattery, Grand Rap-
ids bank executive, moved swiftly in
the State Supreme Court today to
attack contempt of court citation
against their client which sent him
to jail for 60 days for allegedly giving
"evasive" answers to a one-man
grand jury investigating reports of
legislative graft.
William Henry Gallagher, Detroit
attorney, appealed to the State Su-
preme Court late this afternoon for
writs of certiorari and habeas corpus
to obtain a review of the action of
Judge Leland W. Carr Thursday in
sentencing Slattery to jail for con-
tempt.

being planned now and that it will
not begin to take tjlace for sonic
time.
When one hear's of reduction in one
industry now, he stated, they must
remember that another industry is
being developed or that an increase
is being made in still another.
Production is being steadily ham-
pered, he said, by workers who fear
that as soon as peace comes they
will lose their jobs, and so they are
now beginning to seek jobs in peace-
time business.
These people do not realize, lhe
stated, that their welfare is being
planned, when an industry is pre-
paring to stop or reduce produc-
tion it is discussed in Washington,
and an attempt is made to know
how many people will be dropped
from the payrolls and when this is
known the reports are sent back to
the local plant and there the lead-
ers begin to place the workers in
other plants where production is
continuing.
An attempt must be '°made, he
emphasized, to male the workers
realize that they cannot work one
day and then hope to'go in towards
the end of the month and make up
the lost time, they must learn that
one day's delay will slow up shipment
to the troops overseas and will cost
lives that would have been saved had
materials arrived on schedule.
Major Harvey Humphrey of the
Central Procurement District said
that the fighter knows that the war
is not yet over and only by increased
and steady production can the war
keep going until a satisfactory peace
is brought about.
