Striking DSR Operators Spurn Arbitration
Recommendation; Vote Tie-Up Continuance

representative said following today's
mass meeting.
City officials and DSR represen-
tatives said they were at a loss as to
what new steps might be taken to halt
the paralyzing walkout which began
at 4 a.m. Monday.
Officials Bound By Edict
They are apparently bound, they

Comments on
Forest Fires
iIuman carelessness, b a d f ir e
weather and particularly high wind
have been outguessed on occasion but
most great forest fires present this
combination of handicaps to the fire
protection agencies fighting them,
Prof. Shirley W. Allen of the School
ofForestry and Conservation said yes-
terday, commenting on the series of
forest fires which swept Michigan's
lower peninsula last week.
"It is likely traditional human
carelessness is at the bottom of many
of the separate fires reported in the
two major disaster areas," Prof. Allen
continued. "We have not yet per-
fected an organization or equipment
nor are we properly financed to take
care of conflagration conditions
which occur in highly inflammable
cover, high wind and abnormally dry
Recreational values throughout the
region scorched by the fire will have
to be discounted for many years in
addition to the loss of physical prop-
erties, he said. This will, of course,
have a "profound effect" on local

gan have wiped out from ten to forty

while the trolley and bus operators
remain on strike.
The union had asked an 18 cent
hourly wage increase to top the cur-
rent average wage of $1.07 to $1.17
hourly. The city went as high as
15 cents, but this offer was with-
drawn after the strike began.
An International Union officer said
today's mass meeting had resulted in
the union's "flatly" rejecting an ar-
bitration recommendation.
Decision Is Unanimows
Jack Storey, president of division
26, said the membership voted "unan-
imously" to remain on strike until
our demands are met."
The international union, whose
officers opposed the walkout, has
continued to recommend arbitration
of the issues, according to James Mc-
Ginnity, International AFL represen-
Officials Asses
Fire Damage
MI, Mich., April 4-(-P)--Conser-
vation officials trudged acros black-
ened and burned sections of the Hur-
on National Forest today in a first-
hand effort to assess damage done by
wind-fanned fires which' ate their
way through the timberland Tuesday
and Wednesday.
Separate checks of the Yurned-over
acreage were being made by H. R.
Sayre, chief of the State Conserva-
tion Department field staff, and Paul
Newcomb, of the U.S. Forest Service.
The Conservation Department set
the or-iginal estimate of burned acre-
age at 50,000 but Newcomb indicated
this figure may be excessive.
A complete assessment is expected
before the end of the week, he said.
Rains snuffed out the last embers
of the great blaze which ravaged the
Huron forest area after volunteer fire
fighters sought for hours to check
the conflagration.

Wage Increase,
Job Reduction
Voted by House
Salary Appropriations
To Remain Stationary
WASHINGTON, April 4-(IP)-The
House today voted a $400 a year wage
increase for federal employes, but
specified that the increases be ab-
sorbed by an accompanying reduction
in employees by the affected agen-
Passage was by a roll call vote of
337 to 27.
Rep. Dirksen (Rep., Ill.), who in-
troduced the proposal, told the House
that the only way the increased sal-
aries could be granted without caus-
ing inflation was by slashing the
number of government workers.
Dirksen estimated that on a basis
of an average $2,000 annual salary,
the government agencies affected
would have to discharge approximate-
ly 200,00 workers between now and
July 1, when the wage boost would
become effective.
The amendment would bring about
the reduction in employees by stipu-
lating that salary appropriations for
all government departments, except
the Veterans Administration, be the
same for 'the 1947 fiscal year as in
The House action, following two
days of heated debate, virtually tore
apart a committee bill which would
have granted civil service workers an
18.5 per cent across-the-board boost,
including those receiving $10,000 a
year or more.
The bill now goes to the Senate,
which has voted to grant employees
an increase of 11 per cent. The final
bill will have to be worked out be-
tween representatives of both Houses.

watt Frequency Modulation unit.
When razing started on the hall,
examination of the building showed
it remarkable that the first floor had
held up so long, considering the con-
dition of the beams in the basement.
The band, which practiced in the
large first floor auditorium, had given
hard wear to the building which had
been built for a private residence.
Among the interesting tales related
to the hall is that of Sidney Tremble.
Tremble had the dubious honor of
being the only person to broadcast
from Morris Hall in a pair of pa-
jamas. Several years ago, when Zeta
Psi occupied the mansion to the south
of Morris Hall, Tremble was sched-
uled to appear in a 9 a.m. dramatic
program.,Inr~ order to appear on time,
he ran from he fraternity dormitory.

in a pair of pajamas.
In the days of carbon microphones
when hisses (not of the audience va-
riety) were common annoyances in
broadcasts, Samuel Sylvan Simon
now a Hollywood producer, an-
.nounced a musical program for Sid-
ney Straight and Sibley Sedgewick
soloists, accompanied by Grace
Schneider. (They all sold sea shells
by the sea, shore.)
Among the Morris Hall boys whc
made good are Steve Filipiak and Bo
Ufer, who are announcers for WPAG;
Ted Grace and Donn Chown, nowe
with WJR; Wayne Nelson of CBS;
Ward Call of WGN, Chicago; Jacl
