By The Associated Press
DETROIT, March 7-The bitter
General Motors strike that has idled
175,000 production workers and nearly
100 plants throughout the country
dragged through its 107th day today
with across-the-table negotiations in
adjournment, at least until tomorrow.
James F. Dewey, Federal labor me-
diator, who for seven weeks had
sought to bring the corporation and
the CIO Auto Workers into a wage
and contract agreement, was in
Washington reporting on the stale-
mate to Labor Secretary Lewis B.
Schwellenbach. He was expected to
return to Detroit tonight.
Reply From Truman
Meanwhile the Detroit City Council
awaited a reply from the White House
on its appeal to President Truman to
intervene in the stubborn labor-man-
agement battle.
In Washington it was said there
were no indications that any imme-
diate White House action was in
By union estimates the strike to
date has cost General Motors em-
ployes $120,910,000 in lost wages. The
management figured the wage loss at
$1,7,174,000 basing its calculations on
a 45.6 hour work week against the
union's 40-hour week.
Smith Reported
Head of Council
Budget Director Harold D. Smith,
former director of the University's
Bureau of Government has reportedly
been selected by President Truman
to chairman the council of three eco-
nomic advisers who will carry out the
provisions of the newly-enacted full
employment law.
His appointment is expected this
week. Smith and the other two mem-
bers will have to be confirmed by the
Senate before the appointment be-
comes final.
Smith, who left the University in
1937 to become State budget director,
became Federal budget director in
1939 by appointment of the late Pres-
ident Roosevelt. I
In addition to his job with the Uni-
v'ersity in the Bureau of Government,
Smith was a lecturer in the political
science department.
He also served as director of this
Michigan Municipal League.

In supplemental charges filed by
the union today with the National
Labor Relations Board the UAW-CIO
contended that the workers' idleness
Was due to "the unfair labor prac-
tices committed by the corporation,"
and asked that the strikers be com-
pensated for their loss of employment.
The union action follows the re-
cent rejection by the management of
a UAW proposal that the workers re-
turn to their jobs at an increase of
182 cents an hour while an arbiter
decides other issues, including the
union demand for a total increase of
19'2 cents an hour.
List Issues
Thesunion allegations were:
That the corporation informed the
union it would under no circum-
stances submit any of the issues to
That GM Vice-President Harry W.
Anderson charged union leaders with
preventing settlement for personal
reasons and because of the impending
UAW national convention.
That the management gave na-
tional publicity to its proposal for a
secret vote among GM strikers, and
That the corporation rejected the
union's request for a secret vote on
both the GM latest offer and its own
arbitration proposal.
The GM proposal called for an un-
conditional return to work at the
corporation's latest offer including an
18/ cent an hour wage increase and
other contract agreements concerning
vacations and the check-off of union
On Nov. 8 the union filed charges

Germans Keep Seventh
Of Merchant Marine
WASHINGTON, March 7 - (P) -
Britain, Russia and the United States
agreed today to let Germany keep
approximately one-seventh of its re-
maining merchant marine, and split
the balance 1,189,000 gross tons
worth $80,000,000-three ways.
In pre-war years, Germany's mner-
chant marine ran fourth in the
world-behind Britain, the United
States, and Japan. The 200,000 gross
tons which will remain in its hands
is the equivalent of about 22 Ameri-
can victory ships.
