TROLLEY TIEIP-This is part of the equipment of the Philadelphia Transportation Company which was
stored in 30 depots as 9,655 transit workers went on strike, cutting off service for appiroximately 3,000,000
people, including 800,000 workers.

declared he would continue his ef-
forts to obtain an agreement between
the parties. Three weeks ago Dewey
was assigned by labor secretary Lewis
B. Schwellenbachl to get GM and un-
ion representatives together after a
previous breakup.
Two Proposals
GM proposed that its 18/-cent of-
fer become-effective as of the date the
strike would end to one year from
'.hat date. If this was not acceptable
to the union, along with the "interim
agreement," GM in an "alternative
proposal" suggested that negotiations
continue "until a contract satisfac-
tory to both parties is completed and
"The new contract, among other
things," GM said, "shall include prop-
er provisions to assure General Mo-
tors of uninterrupted and efficient
Agrees To Dues
In this connection GM said it would
agree to deduction of union dues "for
the convenience of the union and its
members" but it would not require
General Motors to discipline or dis-
charge an employe at the request of
the union because of any difficulties
he may have with the union."

Emperor Meiji initiated a system
of freedom through education in the
five principles of his Charter Oath.,
This code, he explained, declares
that "learning is the key to success
in life and no man can afford to
neglect it." It was promulgated by
Americans like Dr. Guido Verbeck
and Dr. David Murray, the first sup-
erintendent of Japanese schools, and
by Japanese liberals like Yukichi
Fukuzawa. This principle is widely
different from the concept of edu-
cation for the state which is the
thesis of the reactionary Imperial
Rescript passed in 1890, Dr. Huntley
"The trend that caused the res-
cript to be passed," he contended,,
"was a reaction against foreign in-
fluence on the Japanese educational
system. Many western countries, the
United States in particular, had
played a part in molding that sys-
tem. However, America as a whole
was too occupied with her own in-
terests at the time to enter com-
pletely in the forming of the Jap-
anese philosophy of education and,
as a result, the influence of Ger-
many under Bismarck predominated
to the point where it appeared to fit
better with Japanese nationalism
and rigid regimentation as outlined
in the Imperial Rescript."

Capital Hears
Result of Different
Views on Pauley
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Feb. 12-Secretary
of Interior Ickes today called a "spe-
cial press conference" for 11:30 a.m.
This development followed a pub-
lished report that Ickes' departure
from the cabinet is imminent as a re-
sult of the differing views held by
Ickes and President Truman in the
Pauley case. But if Ickes is resigning,
it would be highly unusual for the an-
nouncement to come from him ahead
of the White House.
Ickes did nct indicate tle reason
for :the conference. Members of his
press staff told reporters they believed
it was called "special" because the
secretary usually holds his weekly
news conference on Thursday instead
of Wednesday. They said they did not
know whether Ickes had anything
special to anirhnunce.
Earxlier in thxe day Ickes had "no
comlment" on a r'eprt published by
the Detroit Nes that "sources close
to the President" are predicting his
removal in a few days.
Ickes testified that Edwin W.
Pauley, the President's nominee for
undersecretary of the navy, made him
the "rawest proposition" he ever
heard-that $300,000 in Democratic
campaign contributions could be ob-
tained from California oil men if a
government suit on tideland oil were
dropped. Pauley denied the statement.
Mr. Truman told his news confer-
ence that Pauley is an honest man
and Ickes could be mistaken.

18 U. S. Soldiers Injured
In New IndianUprising

By The Associated Press
CALCUTTA, Feb. 12-The British
imposed martial law in Calcutta to-
night, moving tanks and troops into
the city to quell rioting in which
14 persons have been killed and 170
injured, including 18 U.S. soldiers and
20 policemen, in the last two days.
Announcing martial law, British
Governor R. G. Casey declared in a
"If the troops are impeded in their
efforts to restore order and to open
up roads to normal traffic, they will
use their weapons."
The riots began yesterday when In-
dians, mostly Moslems, protested the
seven-year sentence of a Moslem of-
ficer of the Japanese-sponsored "In-
dian National Army." Today the dis-
orders spread to Bombay and New
Delhi from Calcutta, second largest
city in the British Empire.
Casey called the disorders "at-
tempts at mob rule," and charged
unruly elements with looting shops
and setting fire to buildings and ve-

Several times today police shot into
crowds which fired vehicles, block-
aded streets, and aided European-
owned stores. For the first time in
months, many of the demonstrators
were Moslems, and some observers
said this reflected Moslem bitterness
against foreign domination of India.
The Americans-five officers and
13 enlisted men-were hurt by flying
missiles, but none seriously.
The first serious outbreak came
early today in south Calcutta when
police fired on a crowd which threw
up a barricade, set fire to military ve-
hicles, and stoned the police, At least
three persons were killed.
The demonstrations in Bombay and
Calcutta were only part of the evi-
dence of Indian discontent on several
scores. There have been numetous
complaints against the British ad-
ministration and charges of govern-
ment mal-administration of food con-
trols, as well as doubt concerning
Britain's intentions to grant indepen-
dence to India.

Washtenaw County's quota for this
year's Red Cross drive for funds has
been set at $76,860, H.O. (Fritz) Cris-
ler, chairman of the county campaign,
.which begins March 1, announced to-
Ann Arbor's goal in the drive will
be $48,460 with Willow Run included
in a township quota of $6,000.
"The 1946 goal of $76,860 repre-
sents the county's share of the na-
tional organization budget needs, as
well as funds for operating the local
Red Cross chapter for the coming
year," Crisler said.
"While the need is not as great
overseas as it was last year, it has
increased at home, and it is a worthy
need," he said.
