Salt Is Mined
Under Detroit
City Streets
Prof. Slawson Reveals
News at Symposium
The mining of salt deposits, which
may be a hundred million years old,
under the city steets of Detroit was
revealed by Prof. Chester B.
Slawson of the mineralogy depart-
ment in his tall on brine and salt in
the symposium on Michigan's natural
resources sponsored by Sigma Xi last
The salt industry is the oldest one
in the state, he continued. Before the
region was settled by white men the
Indians operated several salt licks or
springs, one of which was located in
Saline about ten miles from Ann Ar-
Limestone Used As Fluxingstone
Prof. K. K. Landes of the geology
department, speaking on limestone,
said that the annual value of its pro-
duction in the state averaged around
$7,000,000 and that the chief uses for
it were as a fluxing stone in the steel
industry and nn making cement. The
Rogers City Quarry in Presque Isle
county has been called the largest
stone quarry in the world, he added.
Gas Producing Areas Needed
The figures of 23 billion cubic feet
of gas produced in the state last year
and the importation of 37 billion feet
indicate the need for finding fertile
areas for producing gas, Dr. George
V. Cohee of the U. S. Geological sur-
vey pointed out in a discussion of gas,
oil and coal production in the state.
A rather alarming fact was shown
the timer industry of the state when
Prof. Leigh J. Young of the School
of Forestry pointed out that the state
is cutting on the average 54.3 mil-
lions cubic feet less per year than it
is growing.
Valual;le State Gravel Production
Prof. George M. Stanley of the
geology department, in a survey of
gravel and water, illustrated the value
of gravel production in the state with
the story of a gravel pit outside Ann
Arbor, operating now, which has
yielded up to now a product worth
about $400,00.

BERLIN, April 11-(,P)-Old Prus-
sian Junkers in semi-hiding already
are plotting to rebuild Germany's war
potential, even as they did in the
1920's, says Walter Ulbricht, Ger-
many's number two Communist lead-
Ulbricht, baldish and goateed dep-
uty chairman of the German Com-
munist Party, says that as long as
"these fascists can open their
mouths," the occupying armies will
have to stay on the job within Ger-
many's borders.
Try To Merge Parties
Now. well established with head-
quarters in the Russian sector of
Berlin, Ulbricht took the lead in at-
tempting to merge the Communist
Party with the Social Democrats into
what is to be known as the Socialist
Unity Party.
The Communists consider the
merger an accomplished fact in the
Russian zone and, said Ulbricht, plan
Witness Say
He Defied Hitler
order To Shoot
NUERNBERG, April 11 - (P) -
Banging the witness stand, Ernest
Kaltenbrunner today denounced as
"a crazy lie" charges that he had or-
dered liquidation of concentration
campdinmates and contendedhe had
risked his life to defy a Hitler order
to shoot allied parachutists.
The lanky former chief of Nazi se-
curity police opened his defense be-
fore the international military tri-
bunal witha declaration that "I
know the whole world hates me.
Blamed Himmler
He spent five hours on the stand
trying to prove that such hatred was
misplaced, and to pin the blame on
Heinrich Himmler and on Hitler.
The basic premise of his defense
was that, although he was Reinhard
Heydrich's successor, he was not real-
ly chief of the Gestapo but was mere-
ly head of its intelligence service,
without executive powers.
Confronted with orders that bore
his signature, Kaltenbrunner con-
tended they were rubber-stamped
and actually went from Himmler di-
rectly to executive subordinates.
Protested Decrees
Kaltenbrunner said he had pro-
tested repeatedly to Hitler and
Himmler against their decrees which
violated international law, especially
a Hitler order to shoot parachutists.

to announce it officially at a party
rally April 21 and 22.
However, the Social Democratic
Party in the French, British and
American zones of Berlin voted 18,-
529 to 2,937 against the merger
March 31 and, in those three zones at
least, the Communists appear to .have
little chance of effecting the merger
now or when a central German gov-
ernment is formed.
Reds Refused Vote
At the last minute the Russians re-
fused to allow the Social Democrats
to vote in the Soviet zone and closed
the polls with police aid. The possi-
bility that the Russians might per-
mit a vote at a later date was con-
sidered remote.
Meanwhile, Ulbricht contends that
the democratizing of Germany is go-
ing slowly except in the Russian
zone, perhaps a natural conclusion
for he is under Russian aegis and
spent years in Russia learning the
Soviet line.
He contends that the new SUP pro-
gram to be enunciated this month
will contain a land reform that will
solve that problem. The land will be
redistributed among, the Genuine
farmers, he says.
"We must put it all in the hands of
the farmers because the farmers
guarantee peace."
