Picket Lines Ring Kaiser-Frazer
Auto Plan In Seniority Dispute
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, Nov. 5-A roving picket
line stretching at times to more than'
16 miles long today ringed the giant
Willow. Run bomber plant, now under
lease to the Kaiser-Frazer Corp. for
The line was made up of members
of three CIO United Automobile
Workers locals demanding seniority
rights and union recognition from
the newly-formed corporation.
Three Locals Involved
The three are Local 142, represent-
ing production workers, and Local
114, representing plant protection
men at the Graham-Paige Motors
Corp., and Bomber Local 50, which

Both disputes followed announce-
ment that Graham-Paige had can-

because of a series of work stoppages.
Reuther Asks Debate
Meanwhile debate on the issues
involved in a union-proposed 30 per
cent wage rate increase in the na-
tion's automobile industry was sug-
gested to C. E. Wilson, General Mot-
ors president, today by Walter P.
Reuther, United Automobile Work-
ers (CIO) vice-president.
Reuther, in a letter to the General
Motors head, suggested a debate to
which representatives of the press
and radio, educators and clergymen
and a cross-section of the public
would be invited.
At Wilson's office it was said that
in his absence at the labor-manage-
ment conference in Washington an
immediate reply was not in prospect.
The corporation already has rejected
the union's demand for a 30 per cent
wage increase and plans to give the
UAW-CIO a formal reply to briefs
supporting its position when wage
negotiations are resumed Wednesday

coach, has asked that all students
with the exception of freshmen, who

The schedule so far includes sub-
jects for debate 'on compulsory mili-
tary training and United States for-
eign policy on free trade. Further
plans will be made for the semester

Services No Longer To
Draft Fathers of Three
WASHINGTON, Nov. 5 -()- In-
duction of fathers with three or more
children under 18 was halted today.
Selective Service put the ban into
effect at the request of the Army and
Draft boards have been under or-
ders to give preference to fathers in
granting deferments, but heretofore
there have been no outright exemp-
tions of men younger than 25.
EDITOR'S NOTE: Perry Logan, The,
Daily's roving reporter, was assigned to
cover the reopening of many of the
campus fraternity houses. Sidetracked
on his way to the Tri-Delt house, Logan
was lured to the Bell by two sailors who
got him intoxicated on one glass of beer.
Logan listened to anything that night,
and he reports their story below:
It all began on a train in Ohio.
John Stephens, a Navy V-12 man
being transferred from the Univer-
sity of Miami (Florida), was looking
up and down the aisle trying to find
another newspaper that might keep
him from becoming too bored on his
long trip into Michigan.
A couple of seats ahead of him
he spied another sailor, whose ma-
jor interest seemed to be looking
out the window. John walked up,
spied the Chattanooga Times, said
"Hello," and sat down. The day's
news was routine and the comics
John turned to his companion, a
fellow named George, and made an
apt comment on the dreariness of
long train rides. George concurred
in the matter, he having left Georgia
Tech the day before. They talked
of this and that, mostly about women
they had known and women they ex-
pected to meet, with detailed ac-
Women exhausted, they turned
to whatever it is men do turn to
when they've done with women.
As they crossed the State Line,
John mentioned that he was a
fraternity man,. a loyal brother of
Kappa Sigma. Odd, George de-
clared, but his roommate at Geor-
gia Tech was also a Kappa Sigma.
This roommate, a fellow named
Carl Owens, was being transferred
to the University of Michigan in a
place called Ann Arbor. John radi-
ated; that's where he was headed
John looked Carl up the next day,
and scuttlebutt flowed around the
sacks of two Kappa Sigs who vividly
recalled the ever-popular pastimes
that made their fraternity an active
group both in Florida and Georgia.
LANSING, Nov. 5-AP)-The State
Tax Commission's fight for a state-
wide uniform taxation policy won
backing from the State Supreme
Court today in a decision holding
that all county and local property
taxes must be levied on equalized
a uThedecision had been awaited by
local taxing officials to remove con-
I fusion which resulted when Attorney
General John R. Dethmers, reversing
- an earlier opinion, declared that
. county taxes were to be levied on
- equalized valuations, but that city,
r township and school taxes must be
levied on assessed valuations. The
-State Tax Commission continued,
however, to follow the theory which
the court upheld today.
They made plans that the next day
they'd call on their fraternity broth-
ers here in Ann Arbor, and renew
the fraternal spirit they'd known in
But it rained and it stormed and
the day was further sunless when
they discovered that the Kappa Sig-
ma fraternity is only a name at Mich-
igan. What there was of a chapter
has been defunct since world hostili-
The blow was terrific. No parties,
said John. No women, mused Carl.
No beer, said John. No house-
mother, caroled Carl. Such, how-
ever, should not be the case, they
felt, and straightway they deter-
mined to call a meeting of all the
Kappa Sigmas, actives and past
pledges, they could find on the
They've hired Rm. 319 of the Union
for 7 p. m. Friday night. They're
asking everyone even remotely con-
nected with Kappa Sigma to show
up at the appointed hour. Because
they'd like to get the fraternity going
again-before spring flowers begin
luring more fortunate affiliates to
the Island and the Arb. Logically they
figure that there should be enough
old members on campus to supple-
ment their lonely twosome and re-
establish a chapter here.
But even if no one shows up,
they'll take their fate in stride.
They've reserved a table in a local
tavern for Friday nights this win-
ter, and if need be they're going
to rule that two sailors and a pitct-
er of beer constitute a quorum for
chapter meetings.. If there are no
corrections or additions, the min-
utes stand as read.
MYDA To Hold
The Michigan Youth for Democrat-
ic Action society on campus will have
its first crganizational meeting at 4
p.m. tomorrow in the Union, Presi-
dent Bob Woodward announced yes-
At the meeting the members will
elect new officers and make plans for
the club's fall activities.
Discussion topics such as the prob-
lem of racial discrimination in Ann
Arbor, federal and state aid to edu-
cation, compulsory military training
and the labor problem will be sched-
uled as programs for future meetings.
All students are urged to attend
this meeting, especially veterans on
A much broader screening process
by which patients can be referred to
specialists in' nose, throat, and derm-
atology, to follor up necessary treat-
ment, was established during the
physical entrance examinations this
semester according to Dr. Margaret
Bell, physician at Health Service.
Candidates for immediate care, she
said, were told to come back within
two weeks. Questionable cases such
as T.B. and cardiac cases were imme-
diately examined to determine theim
eligibility for entrance to the Uni-
A staff of 100 assisted in these ex-
aminations, said Dr. Bell, 25 of which
were medical doctors. Eight nurses,
the whole physical education staff,
20 recorders and three technicians
made up the rest of the staff in addi-
tion to x-ray technicians.
Approximately 1,900 women stu-
dents were given examinations, she
said. Special attention, she added,
was also given to help orient these
students. She expressed the hope that
students would not hesitate to seek
advice or help of the Health Service
