two decades.
The DSR Commission met for two
hours today mwithsofficials of the
striking AFL's Amalgamated Associ-
ation of Street Electric Railway and
?Motor Bus Employes in what both
sides said was an effort to "clarify
the issues."
A commission spokesman said,
however, that the meeting was not a
"negotiation." He said the commis-

to their stand that they would not
talk settlement terms until the strike
As 900,000 ordinary DSR riders
trudged through another day without
municipal transportation, the Detroit
Retail Merchants Bureau produced
some figures of how the strike has
affected business.

since returned almost to normal.
Industrial plants reported a sharp
but not severe increase in absentee-
ism the first day of the strike, but
later reported this had fallen off to a
point near normal.

Byrnes Asks
Conference on
Peace Treaties
WASHINGTON, April 5--(AP)--Sec-
retary of State Byrnes has proposed a
meeting of big power foreign minis-
ters to begin in Paris April 25, the
State Department announced today.
Byrnes sent his suggestion yester-
day to Foreign Minister Molotov of
Russia, Bevin of Britain and Bidault
of France through the United States
embassies in Moscow, London and
Byrnes made it plain he was pro-
posing the meeting of foreign minis-
ters to speed completion on the
drafts of proposed peace treaties with
Italy, Roumania, Bulgaria, Hungary,
and Finland because he was "much
distressed" at what he called the
"slow progress" made on those docu-
ments by the deputy foreign minis-
ters now meeting in London.
The Secretary of State urged that
the foreign ministers instruct the
deputies to "press forward their work
on the drafts with utmost speed."
The deputies should reserve "major
matters on which they cannot agree"
for disposition at the suggested meet-
ing of foreign ministers in Paris,
Byrnes said.

Prof. Emeritus Thomas G. True-
blood, first chairman of the Depart-
ment of Speech and oldest living per-
son affiliated with the University, is
celebrating his ninetieth birthday at
Bradenton, Florida today.
Prof. Trueblood, who received his
education at Blue River Academy
and at Earlhan College in Indiana.
became instructor in oratory at the
University in 1884, and was promoted
from assistant professor of oratory
in the English department to chair-
man of the newly-organized speech
department in 1892.
Before coming to the University,
Prof. Trueblood and Robert L Ful-
ton had established the Fulton
and Trueblood School of Oratory
in Kansas City, Missouri. Prof.
Trueblood had received special
training in speech and dramatics
under Prof. S. S. Hamill, and James
E. Murdoch, the Shapespearean
At the University he organized the
first Midwest debate with Wisconsin,
and later, debates with Northwestern,
Wisconsin, Illinois, Chicago, and In-
diana. He was a founder of Delta
Sigma Rho, an organization for hon-
ored debaters, and the National
Speech Arts Association.
Prof. Trueblood also organized the
Oratorical Association Lecture Course
in 1911, and was chairman of the
sponsoring faculty committee until
he retired from teaching in 1926. In
1930, he founded the Michigan
Emeritus Club, which he served as
president for six years.
During sabbatical leaves, he lec-
Local Orchestra To
Enter State Festival
The Ann Arbor Civic Orchestra,
under the direction of Prof. Joseph E.
Maddy, will participate in the first
post-war Michigan Massed Orches-
tra Festival to be held at 3 p.m. to-
morrow at Michigan State College.
During the war, the festival was
held in conjunction with the School
of Music each spring at Hill Audi-
torium. This year, Hans Lange, con-
ductor of the Chicago Civic Orches-
tra and associate conductor of the
Chicago Symphony Orchestra, will
be guest conductor.
Sixteen orchestras will participate
in the festival. The program will be
broadcast over station WKAR.


tured in Tokyo, Manila, Beirut,
Syria (where he found a former
student who had become president
of a Syrian college) and in Hawaii,
New Zealand and Australia.
Prof. Trueblood, who played varsity
aaseball and football at Earlhan
when footballs were round, was well-
known for his golf and tennis skill
while at the University. He was a
member of the Faculty Tennis Club
and held the club's championship
ranking for the last five years of his
membership. Ordered by his physi-
cian to give up tennis, he developed
an interest in golf, and helped or-
ganize the Ann Arbor Golf and Out-
ir Club.
He was also the author of the "Lo-
comotive" yell that has since been
adopted by many colleges and high
schools. The Locomotive, according
to Prof. Trueblood, is good voice cul-
ture. The old yell has been too hard
on the voices of his speech students.

AVC Chapter
Urges Passage
Of Science Bill
Resolution Wired to
State Congressmeu

A resolution endorsing the Kil-
gore-Magnuson Bill, which would es-
tablish a national science foundation,
was telegraphed to Michigan con-
gressmen and senators yesterday by
the Ann Arbor chapter of the Ameri-
can Veterans Committee.
Adopted at the AVC meeting
Thursday, the resolution reads:
"Because of the necessity of main-
taining constant scientific research
for the continued improvement of
our standard of living and to secure
the maintenance of national defense,
the Ann Arbor Chapter of the Ameri-
can Veterans Committee endorses S.
1850, the National Science Founda-
tion Bill, to promote these ends."
Pointing out that the bill provides
for substantial grants to states and
private institutions, AVC officials in-
dicated that scientific research at the
University might be expanded if the
bill were passed.
The resolution was adopted follow-
ing an address by John Lemish of the
Legislative Action Committee, who
pointed out that the bill has been fa-
vorably received by scientists in gen-
eral, and that it would eventually
create many job opporutnities for
veterans. The fundamental aims of
the bill, he said, coincide with the
policies of AVC toward achieving a
better post-war world.
