GM Refuses Union Request
For Arbitration of Issues

* *

Both Parties Invited
To Come to Capital
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Nov. 23-General Mo-
tors Corporation tonight bluntly re-
jected a union request for arbitrations
of wage issues that led to a strike of
200,000 GM employes Wednesday.
The company action came within
a few hours after Secretary of Labori
Schwellenbach had conferred with
President Truman at the White
House on the strike situation.
Schwellenbach said General Motors
officials and representatives of the
United Auto Workers (CIO) would be
invited to Washington to talk with
Edgar. L. Warren, chief of the Fed-
eral Conciliation Service.
Walter P. Reuther, UAW vice-
president in charge of General Mo-
tors negotiations, said "We will be
most happy to confer at Washing-
ton and to help in any way we can
to effect an early settlement of
this strike."
Company officials withheld com-
ment pending official notification
from Washington on the Schween-
bach report.
Asked if he was optimistic about
the situation, the secretary said: "It-
is too early to know."
Terming the arbitration offer of
the United Auto Workers (CIO) a
"demand for abdication, not an offer
of arbitration," the nation's largest
automobile manufacturing concern
bitterly assailed the union's stand.
"Stripped of its deception, the
union proposal is that GM should
relinquish its right to manage its
business," the company statement
Earlier today, a GM spokesman had l
admitted the strikewas' "100 per cent
The original union demand thatf
GM submit the dispute over 30 per
cent wage rate increases was sub-
mitted to the company Monday and
the union set-a 4 p.m. Tuesday dead-
line for reply.
On Tuesday, GM officials notified
the union their reply would not be
available until today and this action
was followed by a strike call, which
was recommended by t1e 200 dele-
gates to the GM council of the UAW
which held a two-day meeting here.
The GM statement brought a
quick reply from R. J. Thomas,
UAW president, who said: "This is
what we expected today, because
General Motors had actually re-
jected the whole principle of vol-
untary arbitration in their letter of
last Tuesday.
"If the corporation were willing to7
accept the principle of arbitration in
any form they would have made a
counter proposal," the UAW chieftain
The Ford Motor Co., pressing its'
demands for what it terms "company
security," today called upon the
UAW-CIO to assume financial re-
sponsibility for unauthorized work
stoppages in a proposed new con-
tract. The company said the union
could make "labor history" by agree-
ing to such a proposal.
GM not only rejected the 30 per
cent wage demands, but also with-
drew its counter offer of 10 per cent
increases declaring, "in view of the
union's summary rejection of our
proposals, this offde is hereby with-

WASHINGTON, Nov. 23 -- (P) -

ceilings on steel-price increases
which industry leaders declare to be
necessary before they can discuss
wage demands of their CIO employes.
Price Administrator Chester Bowles
announced that e finds "no cause at

this time for a general increase in
steel prices," but would review the
plea early in 1946.

Vet Refresher
Courses Will1
Pre-Term Casses
Initiated in gall
A pre-term refresher course will be
conducted by the University begin-
ning Jan. 25, 1946 and ending Feb.
22, for all veterans who desire to re-
view their formal knowledge, and ac-
custom themselves to academic work
before the beginning of the regular
spring term.
President Alexander G. Ruthven
successfully inaugurated the fall term
refresher session at the University
last September. This course had an
enrollment of 142 veterans, who had
served on all fronts and were then
faced with the problem 'of fitting
their G. I. personalities into a civilian
campus life.
Veterans Questioned
A questionnaire was distributed
among the veterans after the comple-
tion of the fall refresher session and
the concensus of opinion was that the
work was very beneficial, and some
went so far as to say that the course
should be made compulsory for veter-
ans. The chief complaint was that
the session was too short, and did not
allow time to review the work exten-
sively enough.
It is estimated that the enrollment
for the spring refresher session will
be two or three times larger than the
fall term. To take care of this in-
crease, courses will be offered in
mathematics, 'English, social studies,
languages, physics, chemistry, and
business administration. Since the
courses are merely review and re--
fresher, they will not be elected un-
less the veteran has already covered
the subject in a pre-war or service
Survey To Be Included
A special course in academic sur-
vey which includes reading drills
and lectures by eai ius professors
will be included again in the curric-
ulum. The aim of the academic sur-
vey course is to improve the veteran's
ability in reading, concentration,
