Hillman Advocates
Hiring of Disabled
(P)-Sidney Hillman today blamed
the men's suit shortage on a lack of
clothing workers and called on his
own and other industries to provide
jobs for disabled veterans.
Hillman, president of the Amalga-
mated Clothing Workers of America,
(CIO), said a scarcity of fabrics and
lining materials is easing but 100,000
additional . workers are needed to
overcome "the terrific backlog" of
orders for men's clothing.
Asks Early Conference
The union leader made public a
letter to Raymond H. Reiss of New
York City, president of the Cloth-
ing Maunfacturers of the United
States, asking for an early confer-
ence to map plans for employment
of 100,000 veterans.
The convention adopted a resolu-1
tion calling foremphasis on training
and finding jobs for veterans in the
clothing business and a waiver for
them of union initiation fees.
Hillman told reporters that the
clothing industry, though highly spe-
cialized, was mpking "real effort" to
train disabled veterans for jobs to
help increase clothing production.
Training Program Established
"We've established with manufac-
turers a training program, under
which veterans get preference," Hill-
man said. "Owners have been asked
to determine what jobs disabled vet-
erans can do and our union people
are doing the training.
"One local in New York has 140
veterans in training now. They are
starting at about $30 a week, but
they will get $5 raises each time they
show improvement until they reach
our $72 scale for specialized workers.
We are waiving all rules to give them
every opportunity."

injured passengers.
"For all the fun we had, we also
did a lot of work, because the pa-
pers were usually eight or ten pages
and the staff was so' limited that
each of us had more than the usual
load," Mrs. Coxon stated. "Most
college dailies had either become
weeklies or had entirely suspended
publication during the war, but the
University was one of the few that
remained open and active all the
In contrasting the senior positions
on the staff, Mrs. Coxon pointed out
that in addition to current posts,
there was a Music Editor, a Literary
Editor, an Exchange Editor, a Fea-
ture Editor and a Telegraph Editor.
When asked how she got to her
residence on North State at 1 a.m.,
Mrs. Coxon promptly replied, "Oh,
the managing editor drove me home."
Those were the days.

Board Accepts
Kelly Petition
The State Board of Caiivassers yes-
terday blocked an attempt by Wayne
Saari, literary college senior, to elim-
inate his opponent for the Democrat-
ic congressional nomination in this
Saari had contended before the
board that W. R. Kelly's nominating
petition did not comply with the law
because Kelly's name was printed
in 10-point type instead of 12-point.
The board affirmed Saari's con-
tention but ruled that there was no
attempt to defraud and that the
petitions should be accepted.
Saari said he might appeal to the
State Supreme Court.

Few ModIficatioils
"I am pleased to report that the
Hare System of proportional repre-
sentation as used in the recent all-
campus election worked out fairly
satisfactorily from the technical
standpoint," Dr. Clark F. Norton of
the political science department, who
oversaw the election procedure in
an advisory capacity, commented.
"But I would hasten to add," he
continued, "that with certain modi-
fications the system would be more
workable and effective. Without a
doubt, proportional representation
balloting is adaptable to campus elec-
tions, as this one proved, but some
of the malpractices and undesirable
situations encountered in the elec-
tion can be easily avoided in the
Prof. Norton pointed to the great
number of ballots which were dis-
qualified because of one technical
reason or another, the length of time
required for tabulating the results,
the great number of candidates from
which each voter had to choose, the
apparent large degree of blind vot-
ing and the large number of bal-
lots which remained uncounted to-
wards any candidate as a few of the
most apparent faults.
"The actual counting of the ballots
was handled very effectively by the
committee which undertook the pro-
ject," Dr. Norton said in commending
the individuals who handled that
phase of the election, "but because
of the many cases of incomplete and
inaccurate voting, their task was
complicated. It took the group 131
hours to complete the, tabulations.'
He reported that over 400 votes were
thrown out.
'U' Graduate Dies .
In Airplane Crash
Leslie Lou .Leveque, millionaire
realty operator and manufacturer,
who received a degree in chemical en-
gineering from the University in 1916,
was kiled in a plane crash near Roch-
ester, New Hampshire, early Sunday.
With Leveque at the time of the
crash were his wife and a pilot iden-
tified as R. C. Johns, both of whom
were killed. Leveque resided in Col-
umbus, Ohio.

LANSING, May 7--UP)-The state
Civil Service Commission today took
under advisement the appeals of six
ousted officials of the state prison of
southern Michigan, indicating that
a decision in the protracted case
would not be delivered for a week or
The case, dragging over parts of
four weeks, wound up with final ar-
guments by Attorney General John
R. Dethmers, acting for the State
Corrections Commission, counsel for
former warden Harry H. Jackson,
and the five other appellants individ-

Edward F. Behen asserted "they
found an array of sexual psycho-
paths, degenerates, syphiletics and
ego-centrics, men whom the warden
had punished, and brought them here
to testify against him. I don't see how
we can lift our heads. from shame if
anything is done to remove Warden
Stuart B. White, Jackson's other
attorney, declared "I have blushed
with shame that the fair state of
Michigan, through its Attorney Gen-
esal, should drag in this rotten,
filthy, perjured testimony for the
one puropse of smearing Harry
Behen asserted Jackson had "built
the greatest prison in the world."
White declared "they had the
bloodhounds of the State Police and
the Attorney General's staff and the
whole resources of the State at their
command and they haven't breathed

a word of corruption or wrong-doing
against Jackson. There has not been
one word of an overt act of mal-
feasance against the warden."
"Administrative Monstrosity"
White contended that the prison
was' an"administrative monstrosity"
and that evils in the prison, which
he knew existed, were present without
Jackson's knowledge "because no-
body told him of them."
White attacked Garret Heyns, State
Corrections Director, for giving Jack-
son several Civil Service ratings of
more than 90 points and "then wak-
ing up one April day in 1945 to find
he had a miserable warden."
