State Meeting
Adopts 6 Points
An all-campus Rally, sponsored by

of China.
A nation-wide program aiming at
international exchange of undergrad-
uate students and government sup-
port of the students while in a for-
eign country is the purpose of the
Veterans International Student Ex-
change Committee.
"Our program is concerned with
creating public opinion on the part
of student organization and social-
minded groups in an effort to have
Congress pass legislation providing
miass exchange of undergraduate
students," Homer E. Underwood,
director of the Executive Commit-
tee said.
Letters explaining the program and'
Srequesting support have been-sent-to
universities throughott the country
and many have replied in favor of
such a movement.
Vets Approve
Exchange lan
The Veterans International Stu-
dent Exchange Committee went on
record yesterday as favoring pro-
posed legislation introduced by Sena-
tor William Fulbright (Dem-Ark) de-
signed to expedite the inauguration
and operation of a system of foreign
student exchanges.
Announcement of the adoption of
the resolution by this veterans com-
mittee affiliated with VO was made
by Homer C. Underwood, director of
the VO Executive Committee.
Senator Fulbright's measure would
give the state department use of gov-
ernment funds, to dispatch and
maintain American students at for-
eign universities.,
U. S. Attitude
Blamed by Ike
TORONTO, Ont., Jan. 12-(P)-
The wave of "bring them home" pub-
lic opinion in the United States is
blinding American occupation troops
to the importance of the allies "un-
finished task" in Germany and Ja-
pan, General Dwight D. Eisenhower
told a news conference today.
Blaming this condition for much
of the current unrest in the Euro-
pean and Pacific theaters, the for-
mer supreme allied commander in
Europe said:
"This clamor to bring the boys
home gets back to the soldier and has
a very definite influence on his atti-
tude and morale. He thinks 'Well, if
everyone says bring us on home we
must not have much to do over here.'
"It's extremely difficult for a com-
manding officer-in the face of this
kind of thing-to convince the men
of the real importance of their as-
signment.

group's first conference, held in De-
troit at Wayne University's Macken-

cational institutions at which World
War veterans are enrolled.
Draws 6 Point Program
The Student Veterans drew up a
six-point program which will be sub-
mitted to Gov. Kelly next week.! It
includes:
(1) Requesting the State to dis-
card veterans bonus plans as a means
of allocating Michigan's $50,000,000
veteran reserve fund.
,(2) A recommendation that the fund
be used to supplement the veteran's
GI Bill income and spent for unem-
ployment compensation to veterans.
(3) A recommendation that the
State provide colleges and universities
with funds which would be used for
loans to breach the gap between en-
rollment and receipt of federal funds.
Requests Housing
(4) Requesting the State to assist
municipalities in the immediate con-
struction of low-cost housing.
5) A request that the State gp-
ply funds for emergency housing.
(6) An appeal to the State to
support federal price control legisla-
tion and help obtain priorities for
low-cost veterans' housing.
Akers said that these resolutions
would be presented to the Young Vet-
erans Emergency Conference to be
held Jan. 20 in Detroit.
Next meeting of the Student Vet-
erans will be held in Ann Arbor early
in March he added.

Lamed, in accepting the March of
Dimes chairmanship, said, "In our
state alone during the first nine
months of this year, 140 cases of in-

tunately, through the generous con-
tributions of the American people to
the March of Dimes, it is possible for
the fight against this disease to be
continually strenthened and intensi-
fied."'

Students Asked
To Urge Action
On FEPC Bills
A campus drive urging students to
write to their congressmen regarding
current Federal Employment Prac-
tices legislation will take place to-
morrow and Tuesday under the spon-
sorship of the Liberal Action Com-
mittee.
Booths will be set up at various
points around the campus and writ-
ing materials will be furnished to
anyone requesting them. There will
also be mimeographed letters neces-
sitating only a signature for per-
sons not having time to write their
own and telegram blanks will be
available. Petitions to the Presi-
dent concerning current legislation
will also be at the booths.
"At the present time, two bills are
before Congress which would make
the FEPC permanent, would grant it ,
more appropriation and would givef
it more judicial backing," Pat Kelley,E
chairman of the drive, stated in the
chairman of the drive stated. "In the
Senate the bill is about to be intro-
duced and Michigan Senators Van-'
denburg and Ferguson are said to
favor it. However, southern Senators
are opposed to it and Senator Taft of'
Ohio, the only northern mid-west'
Senator, is also against it", she said.
"However, in the House," she
continued, "the bill has been pigeon
holed by the Rules Committee who
refused to put the proposed legis-
lation on the calendar. A petition
by 218 representatives is necessary
to bring the bill on the floor of the
House. So far 50 Republicans and
110 Democrats have signed. Mich-
igan representatives who have not
signed are Republicans Mitchner,
Hoffman, Jonkman, Blackney, Wol-
cott, Crawford, Woodruff, Bradley,
and Dondero. Students are urged
by the Liberal Action Committee
to request their congressman to
sign."
An organizational meeting of the
Association of University of Mich-
igan Scientists will be held at 8
p.m. tomorrow in the Rackham
Amphitheatre. All faculty and
graduate student scientists are
urged to attend.

4-Hour Eession
Announcement of the delay came
at the end of a four-hour closed-door
session in the executive mansion,
called by the President last night
when wage negotiations broke down
in New York. It also followed sepa-
rate meetings by the President in his
offices with Philip Murray, president
of the steelworkers, and Benjamin
F. Fairless, president of U.S. Steel.
Collective bargaining will continue
next week under the supervision of
the President.
Murray Shows Strain
Murray, showing the strain of the
past few days of negotiations, an-
nounced to waiting reporters that he
had agreed personally to postpone
the walkout of 800,000 steel workers
and would come back to the White
House for more conferences Wednes-
day. He said he did it "at the request
of the President."
The President disclosed that the
corporation has made an offer, pre-
sumably better thant he 15-cent
hourly increase proposed prior to the
breakdown of negotiations on behalf
of the union.
Dropped to $1.56
The union's original demand was
for a $2 a day increase. Murray
dropped this to $1.56 yesterday, com-
pared to the company's counterpro-
posal of $1.30 increase.
Both Murray and Fairless, as well'
as Ross, declined to say what was
offered today.
As today's meeting began, a highly
placed official told a reporter that
the price of steel overshadowed all
other questions involved.
He said the lineup was this as the
administration put on pressure to
head off a walkout that could gravely
affect the nation's whole economy.

WASHINGTON, Jan. 12-Federal

break the deadlock in negotiations
that might settle the nation's long
distance telephone tieup.
Discussions will resume at 10 a.m.
EST. tomorrow. Government seiz-

sible if the conference fails.
Nine hours of consultations be-
tween officials of the Western Elec-
tric Company and of the Association

the wage dispute.
Telephone communication through
manually operated switchboards has
been curtailed as a result of picket

brought a one-week postponement today of the nationwide steel strike
scheduled for 12:01 a.m. Monday.
It also produced new offers, of a nature not announced, from, both United
States Steel Corporation, bellwether of the industry, and the CIO-United

Student Waiters
State Causes of
Recent Waflkout
Strike Called Protest
Against Discrimination
In an attempt to clarify their po-
sition regarding the recent waiters'
strike, student employes of the Law-
yers Club Dining Hall released the
following statement yesterday which
was the first authorized announce-
ment issued by them:
"In the operation of a dining
hall serving from 250-300 persons
twenty meals a week, there are
bound to be left-over items and
less choice portions of the currently
prepared food. The practice has
been to set aside these portions
for the student employes and full-
time kitchen help.
"If the student employes were pay-
ing a lower rate for their meals than
the prevailing rate charged the reg-
ular diners. there would be no com-
plaintrHowever,'the student employe
do pay the prevailing rate. Therefore,
we felt that there was no justification
for the discrimination described
above.
"The walkout was a protest
against this discriminatory prac-
* tice, prompted by the obvious sub-
stitution on the Thursday evening
menu. The quality of the food in
the dining hall was not the issue.
"The student employes have been
assured that there will be no such
discrimination in the future. At a
meeting of the waiters Friday eve-
ning, a committee of three was elect-
ed to represent the group in future
negotiations."
The statement by the student em-
ployes had reference to the spontan-
eous walkout Thursday night by all
but six of the 45 waiters regularly
employed in the Lawyers Club Dining
room. Issue was taken by the waiters
when they were served roast beef for
dinner while the remaining guests
were given steaks. Dissatisfaction
with the wage scale was also ex-
pressed by some spokesmen for the
waiters. No formal statement of
grievances, however, was made by
the waiters at the time of th walk-
out.
All student water :retrned t
their ebs Fridar ater the had
reotedly rtece ve"a a efrom
the Board of Govern' r -hat they
will receiv the same fod as the
other guests in ice fure. Ernest
Getz, headwaiter, conferred Thurs-
day night with Prof. Grover C.
Grismore, acting secretary-treas-
urer of the Law School, and Miss
M. A. Bailie, assistant director of
the club, concerning the walkout.
The waiters' strike is believed to be
the only instance in the history of
the University in which University-
employed student help has pressed a
wage grievance.

"The Speech Clinic offers persons
with speech defects a comprehensive
training program so that they can
learn to use speech well in life situa-
tions," Prof. Harlan H. Bloomer, di-
rector of the clinic who returned last
week from service in the Navy, said in
an interview yesterday.
The clinic is now conducting its

jury in India.
Other groups served by the train-

Besides this seven-fold program,
the clinic holds University classes,

students work in all phases of the
clinic's program along with staff
members.
Patients are referred to the clinic
from the University Hospital, state

Although he termed the present
prog ram "comprehensive," Dr.
Bloomer said that it is, nevertheless,
limited because there is not adequate,
convenient housing for patients. He
termed making such facilities avail-
able as very advisable. None of the
patients live at the clinic.
