Truman Intervention Sought

Union Charges Company
With Internal Interference
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, March 6 - President
Truman's personal intervention in
the deadlocked General Motors strike
was asked by the city of Detroit to-
day as labor mediator James F.
Dewey left for Washington to report
on the stalemate to Secretary Schwel-
The UAW-CIO charged General
Motors tonight with 'Trying to inter-
fere in internal affairs of the UAW"
and further asserted that "Unless
General Motors accepts arbitration
or moves from its present fixed posi-
tion there is no hope of an early set-
The assertions were made in separ-
ate statements issued by top officials
of the union and the top UAW GM
negotiating committee.
Charges Needless Delay
"The General Motors strike is being
unnecessarily prolonged," the negoti-
ating committee said, "Because the
corporation is trying to interfere in
the internal affairs of the nAW-IO,
General Motors doesn't want the
strike to be settled until after the
UAW-CIO Convention March 23-31.
"General Motors wants to use the
strike as political weapon to influence
convention decisions and to turn the
union membership against its lead-
ership in order to defeat the higher
purchasing power policy which the
Parts of State
.Assistance Bill
In a telegram sent Governor Kelly
during vacation by Ted Souris, Chair-
man of the State Veterans Fund
Committee, the AVC proteste
against parts of the $53,000,000 bil
providing assistance for veteran
passed by the State legislature durin
its recent emergency session.
"The particular type and character
of the new act," Souris said, "sets a
bad precedent for veterans legislation
in Michigan. The act fails in its pur-
pose in two ways-it does not specify
and standardize the basis of assis-
tance for veterans and it provides
that these public funds be put in the
hands of four private organizations
-the American Legion, the VFW, the
DAV, and the Am. Veterans."
Governor Kelly answered the tele-
gram with a letter in 'which he stated
that the organizations were not pri-
vate but quasi-public because char-
tered by Congress and were best-
equipped to'handle the funds as well
as to represent the veterans most

short talk on national service insur-
A recent survey, reported in the
AVC Feb. 1 Bulletin reveals that
nearly 85 per cent of the returning
veterans are dropping their GI in-
surance. Chief reason given is the
fact that the NSLI contract in its
present form does not provide a cash
settlement option.
It is not widely known that AVC-
backed legislation, has already been
introduced in Congress, which would
amend the NSLI Act to provide addi-
tional benefits. The changes will in-
clude cash settlement option and will
also provide further reduction in cost
of premium, removal of existing re-
strictions on naming beneficiaries.
"All new veterans are urged to at-
tend the AVC meeting to hear the
two speakers and to clear any ques-
tions they have on mind concerning
their duty on campus and to the na-
tion," Baum said.

since V-J Day."
Previously General Motors charged
the union leadership was unwilling
to settle the strike on an 18" cent
an hour wage increase, because, the
corporation said, this might prejudice
union officials politically in view of
the forthcoming convention,
Other Strike Developments
Other developments today in the
106-day old work stoppage by 175,-
000 GM production workers included:
A charge by R. J. Thomas, presi-
dent of the CIO-United Auto Work-
ers' Union that the National Labor
Relations Board "Has aligned itself
with the corporation" in an effort to
destroy the union.
An assertion by Thomas that the
steel industry is refusing to supply
naterial to the Kaiser-Frazer Corp.
and urging the CPA to allocate to
)ther auto manufacturers now in

Costly To City
The city's appeal to President Tru-
nan to intervene in the strike was in
the form of a resolution adopted and
:orwarded to the President by the city
:ouncil. The resolution asserted that
ahe strike "most seriously affects
;he whole economic life of the city,"
nd has "occasioned increases in city
osts in many departments." (The
ity council earlier this week author-!
zed a $400,000 appropriation for wel-
are relief, occasioned largely by the
dleness of some 35,000 GM workers in
Word from Washington indicated
Viediator Dewey had been summoned
here by Secretary Schwellenbach
after GM and the UAW-CIO had re-
ected each other's proposals for a

progress already made by the Kan-

the usual patron support.

By 'Tihe Asnia tt'l Press
COLUMBUS, O.. March 6-Presi-
dent Truman reaffirmed today this1
nation's stout support of the United
Nations charter before an applauding
assemblage of church leaders to whom
to also appealed for support of his
domestic legislative program.
Speaking a day after Winston
Churchill's appeal for an Anglo-
American Alliance to give strength
to the UNO to prevent world war
three, Mr. Truman told the Federal
Council of Clurches of Christ in
"The United Stat es exels to sup-
port that charter."
The President also took occasion
to remark that "certain interests"
were so "greedy for gold" that they
were lobbying to defeat his domestic
legislative program.
Silent on Churchill Proposal
Neither in his speech nor in hi
conversations with reporters did the
President refer to the former British
prime minister's Fulton Mo., speech !
of yesterday. Churchill suggested an
Anglo-American alliance and said So-
viet Russia was seeking to expand
Communistic influence.
Turning to his legislative program,
the President told the church dele-
gates that if the people "really be-
livdin tlie broth erhood o' man,'' it
would "not be necessary" to seek a
bill creating a permanent Pair E
E-ploylnent PractIices Commission to
prevent racial and oher discrimina-
tion in job giving.
Seeks Church Support
And, in what was seen as a bid for
churc' support of bogged-down meas-
ures, he declared:
A.truly relidous fe vo 'among our
le kes (Charges
Pauley Guilt
In O osm Sit
WASHINGTON, March 6 --- P)-
Fermer Interior Secretary Ickes in-
sisted in a sharp exchange with Sena-
tor Tydings today that Edwin W.
Pauley used "improper methods" in
opposing a suit to determine govern-
ment ownership of tidewater oil
Then, under pointed questioning by
the Maryland Democrat, Ickes ex-
plained that he did not protest di-
rectly to President Truman over
Pauley's noination as Undersecre-
tary of the Navy, because the Presi-
dent did not ask his advice.
The Ickes-Tyings clash was as
gaudy a show as the Senate Naval
Affairs Committee has witnessed in
its weeks of hearings on the disputed
nomination. At one point the frmer
Cabinet officer stuck out his finger at
the Marylander and referred to him
as "Mister Pauley's counsel." Tydings
shouted back: "Don't try to bam-
boozle me!"
Other highlights of the session, the
third Ickes has attended:
1. Ickes said he told the late Presi-
dent Roosevelt in 1944 that "sooner
or later you are going to have a
scandal on your hands" if an oil man
remained Treasurer of the Demo-
cratic National Committee. (Pauley
formerly served in that capacity.)
2. Tydings demanded that Ickes'
son, Raymond W. Ickes, who was
serving as his father's counsel, leave
his side at the witness table.
3. Ickes asserted that Welborn
Mayock, an attorney for Pauley,
"worked in the oil procurement busi-
ness from Democratic national head-
quarters in 1944-until President
Roosevelt intervened at Ickes' re-
quest and he was packed off to Cali-

people would go a long way toward
obtaining a national health program,
a national housing program, and an
extended and improved social security
In his speech he repeated his oft-
voiced warning that the development
of the atomic bomb had left mankind
"in the doorway to destruction-or
upon the threshhold of the greatest
age in history."
He said there was a crying need
"for an Isaiah or a Saint Paul to
reawaken a sick world to its moral
Books Requested

for money and banking and ac-
counting courses has completely

igan Union Student Book Ex-
