Offers New
Negotiationm Hurried
Beore ['icee ndsI
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 20---Hope for
a compromise that would avert a
nation-wide railroad tie-up rose to-
night as A. F. Whitney, president of
Uhe trainmen's brotherhood, present-
ed a new "proposition" and other rail
labor sources said prospects of a set-
tlement "look good."
Whitney told reporters he made
his proposition to government con-
(iliators seeking to settle the wage
dispute before a five-day truce ex-
pires Thursday. The conciliators, in-
cluding John R. Steelman, presi-
dential adviser, kept busy in separate
negotiations with union and carrier
Talks With Negotiating Committee
Steelman met with Whitney and
Alvanley Johnston, president of the
Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers
for more than an hour at midday.
He was reported talking with the car-
riers' negotiating committee during
the afternoon, and presumably the
union "proposition" was taken up
then with the carriers.
At Cleveland, another person fa-
miliar with labor matters but who de-
clined to permit 'use of his name said:
"Things look good in Washington."
Possible Settlement Wednesday
He said a settlement by late Wed-
nesday appeared possible.
The White House said Steelman
was hopeful.
Steelman was trying to work out
some compromise before asking both
sides to resume joint negotiations.
The unions have boiled down their
demands to an 18 per cent increase,
with a $1.44 per day minimum boost,
while the railroads were willing to go
only as high as $1.28 or 16 cents an
hour as had been recommended by
a presidential fact-finding commit-

Scholarship Available
Applications for the Muriel S.
Kleinwaks Memorial Scholarship.
which was established this year, are
now available at the B'nai B'rith
Hillel Foundation.
The scholarship provides tuition
expense for one year, subject to re-
newal, for a student now in attend-
ance at the School of Dentistry or
who will enter in the fall.
Consideration in choosing the re-
cipient for the scholarship will be
given to scholastic achievement, need
and interest in Jewish communal and
institutional life. Although all appli-
cations from qualified students will be
considered, women applicants will be
given preference.
The scholarship has been estab-
lished by friends of the late Muriel
S. Kleinwaks, who was killed in an
automobile crash while returning to
her home in New Jersey at the end
of last term. Miss Kleinwaks was en-
rolled in School of Dentistry and was
head resident at the Hillel Dormi-

Rabbi Jehudah M. Cohen, direc-
tor of the Hillel Foundation, Prof.
Saul Cohen of the physiology depart-
ment and Prof. William Haber of the
economics department will judge the
applications for the scholarship.

plication may obtain additional in-
formation at the Hillel Foundation

Tickets will be put on sale in the

Urging the establishment of a per-
manent world student organization,
Mollie Leber invited the University
to send a delegate to the interna-
tional student conference now being
held in Prague.
Miss Leber, one of three committee
members chosen by the conference
to lead the formation of the World
Student Organization, visited here
over the week-end as part of a tour
of American universities to form an
American delegation to the confer-
ence where 500 delegates from 55
countries have been in session for
three months.
The World Student Organization,
she said, will work toward stimulating
an active student interest for secur-
ing universal peace and for strength-
ening democracy by wiping out fas-
cist ideologies. Discussion of the stu-
dent's role, his scholarship, and the
development of exchange methods
will also be stressed.
"It is important," Miss Leber em-
phasized, "for American students to
become acquainted with the problems
of students in other lands." Repre-
senting AYD, to which MYDA is
affiliated, at a student conference
in Prague last November and a mem-
ber of the American delegation to the
World Youth Conference in London
last October, Miss Leber indicated
that our own problems including

Attends Meeting
Prof. Willett F. Ramsdell of the
School of Forestry and Conserva-
tion has just returned from a meet-
ing of the State Forest Industries
Information Committee in Kalama-
This committee, composed of mem-
bers of the lumber and pulp and pap-
er industries of the stateis interested
in disseminating information con-
cerning its industrial importance to
Michigan and in actively supporting
forest and conservation movements.
Few people realize, Prof Ramsdell
explained, that Michigan is the sec-
ond largest producer of paper in the
country, exceeded only by New York.
A large proportion of Michigan-man-
ufactured paper is dependent upon
raw materials in the form of wood
pulp shipped into the state, and fox
this reason any program which in-
creases the local wood supply is ad-
vantageous to the industry and to
the state in the form of increased

limited facilities and the educational
inequalities of minority groups could
be solved more successfully after
studying similar conditions in Europe.
Having visited universities in
Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, France
and Russia, Miss Leber found that
Russian education was the most
extensive. The Soviet Union, she
F aid, provides e-ery capable student
having had ten years of prepara-
tory schooling with a free higher
education including textbooks,
housing and a monthly stipend.
Complete destruction of city uni-
versities, especially in Stalingrad
where every building was demolish-
ed, has necessitated the formation
of reconstruction brigades com-
posed mainly of students.
Polish schools are en!irely unequip-
ped to the degree that children must
carry their own chairs to class. Mim-
e .graphed sheets have taken the
place of textbooks destroyed by the
Nazis, and now Europeans. s:he said,
are anxiously hoping that "we will
answer their appeal for scientific
books which are acut ely scarce."

MYDA Plas To
Discuss Parley
MYDA members will discuss the
possibility of sending a University
delegate to the World Student Con-
ference in Prague at a meeting at
7:30 p.m. today in the Union.
"Having spoken to Molly Leber, a
leading organizer of a permanent
world student body, 'we now realize
the importance of unity among stu-
dents on an international level so
that problems common to us all can
be discussed and solved'," Mat Cher-
notsky, president, said.
An election of a delegate to the
National Negro Congress to be held
in Detroit from May 30 to June 2,
and a discussion of the Congress
program will take place.
Plans for a summer organization

ence in New York will also be drawn.

quently in classroom instruction;
the University could do much in
assisting the schools in setting up
such departments. Lastly, the high
school teachers should receive defi-
nite training in the use of visual
aids. This could be done, Lemler
feels, by requiring such instruction
in the state teachers' training in-
stitutions, and for the teachers al-
ready in the schools, there should
be university extension courses and
