Affects More
Than a Million
Nationwide Stoppage
Paralyzes Industry
By The Associated Press
MEXICO CITY, Feb. 5-A nation-
wide work stoppage involving 1,250,-
000 members of the Mexican Labor
paralyzed the nation's industrial
strength today.
A few traffic disorders; in which
workers forced taxis to curbs and
throttled street car service, were the
only semblance of violence reported.
Observe Constitution Day
The idle period, lasting four hours
in states and one hour in Mexico City,
was featured by mass demonstrations
which flaunted "anti-fascist" ban-
ners and shouted support for the na-
tion's constitution, adopted 29 years
ago today.
Today was officially observed as
Constitution Day, and the sitdown
was planned as an adjunct of the
program, which included placing a
floral offering on the grave of Gen.
Venustiano Carranza, promulgator of
the document.
Parade Banners
The union workers also paraded
banners requesting:
1. Respect for the constitution.
2. Dissolution of the National Si-
narquista Union, a "rightist" organi-
3. Steps against "subversive acts of
the reaction."

In his message, Gov. Kelly mader
these recommendations for the Uni-
1. That the legislatiure approve ai
building program of $8,000,000 for
the University to provide a Gen-Y
eral Service Building, a School of
Business Administration building,r
an engineering building addition, aI
chemistry building addition, a ma-
ternity hospital and necessary serv-
ice connections to these buildings.,
2. That to carry this endorsed pro-r
gram forward, the legislature appro-1
priate to the Board of Regents thet
sum of $3,300,000.
3. That the $1,500,000 appropria-t
tion provided by the 1945 legislaturet
for the General Service Building be1
added to the $3,300,000 appropriation
at this session of the legislaturet
thereby creating a total sum of $4,-
800,000 with which to initiate the $8,-
000,000 program.
4. That this legislature commendt
to the favorable consideration oft
the 1947 legislature such furthert
appropriation as may be necessaryt
to complete this eight million dol-
lar building program at the earliest
possible moment. te
The Governor omitted any refer-
ence to the balance of the $15,300,000
buildingprogram requested by the1
University. The University ear-
marked $6,500,000 for "emergency"
building and the rest for "urgently
needed" buildings.
University Vice-president Mar-,
vin L.,Niehuss said that the "ur-
gently needed" building program
was not necessarily imperiled by not
being referred to the present legis-
lative session. In its request to the
Governor, the University pointed
out that this part of the building
progra ncould beprovided for2by
annual appropriations of $2,200,-
000 each from 1947 to 1951, Niehuss
President Ruthven said he did not
know what buildings the University
would construct first if the legislature1
follows the Governor's recommenda-
tion that it appropriate only $3,300,-
000 this year.

Gargoyle Is
Here Again
'M' Humor Magazine

Shouting "It'sahere, it's here!",
three professors and an unidentified
custodian were late for work this
morning, pausing in their mad dash
to Angell Hall to get their copies of
the second issue of . the Gargoyle,
which appeared on campus today.
No Connection O'Rourke
Two of the professors were re-
vealed as members of the Engineer-
ing English department. The third,
affectionately called "Professor" by
his admiring asociates, was Fingers

manipulation of the daily numbers.
He has no legal connection with the
Predicting an early-morning sell-
out, Bill Goldstein, genial general
manager of the Club Gargoyle (no
loitering on Saturday nights), yes-
terday laid away the first 200 copies
of the Garg for his personal scrap-
book. "There's no accounting for
tastes, you know," he pointed out.
Replaces Catalog
A report from the senior staff of
the Daily indicates that the Gar-
goyle will hereafter replace the Sears,
Roebuck literature in the Publica-
tions Building men's lounge. "Gotta
be nice to our paying customers,"
they declared. "A nickel here, a nickel
there-it gives us a nice surplus at
the end of the year."
Billed as the "Garg Tries Again"
issue, the humor magazine has culled
the cream of campus wit, such as it
is, for its second appearance. Dis-
played prominently on page 6 is
Garg's new coat-of-arms, featuring
Garg himself, his top hat, and the

Bill Passes
Modifying Proposals
Are Shouted Down
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 5- Suppor-
ters of a broad new strike control
bill won a series of test votes today in
the House.
They shouted down by overwhel-
ming majorities assorted attempts to
modify the measure oflered by Rep.
Case (R-SD).
One vote was on an amendment by
Rep. Patterson (D-Calif) to strike
from the Case bill all except a declar-
ation of policy.
Another was on a proposal by
Rep. Bell (D-Mo) to substitute
temporary fact-finding boards for
the permanent federal mediation
agency sought by Case.
Still another vote was on a move
by Rep. Landis (R-Ind) to elimi-
nate a proposed ban on boycotts.
All these proposals failed, along
with one by Rep. Hoffman (R-Mich),
to strike from the Case bill a section
giving courts the power of injunc-
tion to prevent violence on picketing
The Landis amendment would have
deleted a section making illegal any
concerted refusal to handle goods in
order to make an employer come to
But the Case bill proponents said
the boycott prohibition is needed to
halt jurisdictional disputes. They
said many unions use the boycott to
force management to deal with them,
instead of some other union.
The Case backers accepted an
amendment by Rep. Hoffman
(R-Mich), however, which reduced
the penalty for violation of the
boycott ban. The amendment pro-
vides only that violators lose their
bargaining rights. Originally, the
Case measure specified also that
courts could enjoin violators, thus
laying them open to fines or jail
terms if they ignored injunctions.
Case's bill would set up a national
mediation board with power to step
into labor disputes involving either
labor or management; outlaw vio-
lence in picketing and step into ma-
jor 'labor disputes and forbid strikes
or lockouts for 30 days. It also would
permit wider use of court injuctions
against either labor or management.

Protests Come
From Australia,
Local Residents
By The Associated Press
LONDON, Feb. 5 - The Stam-
ford-Greenwich-Westchester area of
Connecticut and New York was ap-
proved today by the 13-member in-
terim committee of the United Na-
tions for the permanent home of
the world peace agency despite the
protests of Australia and some local
The full general assembly is the
final authority on choosing the site.
The recommendation will be con-
sidered tomorrow by the 51-member
committee on headquarters.
Immediately after the closed
session of the interim committee,
which acted on the report of a
site inspection committee, Col. W.
R. Hodgson, delegate from Aus-
tralia, said he would fight for San
Francisco and would attempt to
have the recommendation reject-
ed by the larger committee.
Dr. Stoyan Gavrilovic of Yugosla-
via, head of the site inspection com-
mittee, said at a news conference
in which he announced the interim
committee's action that committee
members felt concern over the pro-
tests of residents in the New York-
Connecticut border area and added.
"This was to be expected. It
would'have happened anywhere.
There is no area which we visited
from which I did not get similar
letters of protest. But on Stam-
ford I got many assurances that

Gavrilovic said the committee rec-
ommended that as many as pos-
sible of the residents in the zone
affected by the peace agency be al-
lowed to remain in their homes With
long leases from the United Nations.
He explained that there would
be a central zone within the inter-
national area where the assembly,
secretariat and other United Na-
tionsuagencies would be housed.
Around that area, he continued,
there will be a "buffer zone" under
the United Nations to prevent en-
croachment by the growth of neigh-
boring cities. The committeerec-
ommended that the residents of the
"buffer zone" be allowed to remain
The proposed site of the zone is
40 to 50 square miles.
UNO Meeting
Is Adjourned

Min ors Subject
To Fines, Prison
Violations of the new city ordin-
ance making it a misdemeanor for
minors to purchase or attempt to
purchase intoxicating liquors in lo-
cal taverns will be punishable by a
$100 fine and up to 90 days in prison,
acording to City Attorney William
M. Laird.
Police Chief Sherman Mortenson
said yesterday that he has not yet
studied the new law and therefore
has not been able to plan any pro-
gram of enforcement. When asked
if plainclothesmen will be sent into
taverns to seek violators he said:
"We'll have to think it over."
Under state law, sellers of liquors
to minors are held completely re-
sponsible for the purchases. County
The new liquor restriction in
Ann Arbor "amounts to a repeal of
the law against selling liquor to
minors," according to Prof. John B.
Waite of the Lew School.
"It will make the law virtually
unenforceable," he commented.
"Since no man can be compelled
to incriminate himself, authdri-
ties will be unable to get testimony
from either the seller or the pur-
chaser," he pointed out.
Prosecuting Attorney John Rae said
that local investigations of such sales
will also aid state law enforcement.
Local police will be able to file
complaints against the sellers as well
as against the minors involved in il-
legal liquor sales. Sellers are also
punishable by a $100 fine or up to
90 days in prison, or possibly by
liquor license suspension.

"The Italians accepted us Army1
nurses as necessary evils," two wo-
men veterans, now students here,;
agreed in interviews yesterday.
"They weren't any too nappy about
the setup though," Virginia N. Bug-
bee added. Miss Bugbee, a student in
the School of Public Health, served
overseas as a first lieutenant with
the Twelfth General Hospital for 27
months -a record overseas stay
among the seven women veterans
who served across the oceans and
are now enrolled here.

we went the dirtier the towns were
and the more unfriendly the people
became," Miss Bugbee said.

Plan Proposed
Lecturer Says U.S.
Compromise Needed
Drawing ananalogy between the
revolutionary histories of China and
the United States, Owen Lattimore
said in a lecture yesterday that com-
promises of the type used in drafting
the American constitution are needed
in China today.
We should substitute "agreement"
for the "newspaper word unity," he
said. In that way only can China
eventually achieve unity.
Declaring that China is the main
problem of the world, Lattimore

armed Japanese are working in the
same areas to hold open communica-
tions. "We should give notice that
we will start withdrawing our troops
at a definite date," he added.

where Fascism was more prevalent
