Negotiators Clash
Management's Leaders Accuse UMW
chieftains of 'Repetitious' Arauments
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 15-UMW chieftain John L. Lewis and a leader
of soft coal operators clashed today over the producers' charge that the
miners were "wasting time" in negotiations on a new wage contract.
Charles O'Neill, chairman of the bituminous coal operators negotiating
committee, touched off the exchange at a negotiating conference with a
coniplaint about what he termed "r'epetitious" argument on the part of hte

Va rsity Glee
. Club To Hold
Campus Sing
Wednesday Program
Will Feature Quartet
An all-campus sing will feature the
latter part of the program when the
Men's Varsity Glee Club makes it.,
initial appearance of the season a?
.:30 p.m. Wednesday in Hill Audi-
torium.
"When Night Falls," "Michigan
Men," and "The Bum Army" are but
a few of the traditional Michigan
songs, many of them unfamiliar tc
new Michigan students, that will be
dusted off and revived during the
concert, first to be presented for sev'
eral years because of wartime diffi-
culties.
The Glee Club, under the direc-
tion of Prof. David Mattern of the
School of Music, will open the con-
cert with another old favorite,
"Laudes Atque Carmina." For many
years it has'been the custom to begin
Glee Club concerts with this rousing
salute to the University of Michigan.
A quartet composed of members of
the Glee Club will make its debut at
the concert in "Spirit Flower." The
quartet is under the direction of
Harry McCain, assistant conductor
and accompanimist for the Club, who
is now doing graduate work in music
literature in the School of Music. Mc-
Cain, who saw 38 months of service in
the southwest Pacific during the war,
was for a year in charge of music and
entertainment at MileBay, New
Guinea.

,United Mine Workers spokesmen.
Lewis retorted that if the opera-
tors "don't want to stay here they
an leave."
The flareup, first between the
UMW boss and the management
representatives since the negotia-
tions began two days ago, came
after Lewis and other union spokes-
men had spent most of the day ad-
vocating establishment of a miners'
health and welfare fund and im-
provement of safety rules in mines.
Lewis at one point accused the op-
rators of having "made dead" 28,000
niners in the last 14 years through
'cupidity, stupidity and wanton neg-
ect." For the same reason, he said,
',004,009 have been injured.
Lewis, threateneing a walkout of
':00,000 bituminous coal miners April
t if a new contract is not written by
,hat date, has presented nine de-
nands to the nation's soft coal oper-
ators.
In addition to a shorter work
week at higher wage rates, and un-
ionization of supervisory workers,
Lewis asked for creation of a health
and welfare fund and "improved
safety and compliance with mining
compensation and occupation dis-
ease laws." He still did not men-
tion specific figures for a wage
raise.
For two days, Lewis and his Unit-
,d Mine Workers technicians and dis-
-rict officials have emphasized haz-
ards of the industry and what they
described as lack of adequate protec-
tion under state compensation and
safety laws.

An unidentified prowler man-
aged to cross the moat at Mosher
Hall at 1 a.m. yesterdav, and suc-
ceeded in pushing an improvised
battering-ram through the porti-
cullis at the main gate.
A cohort threatened the rear of
the hall while an alarm was
sounded in the keep. Four men-
at-arms wummoned from the local
police station were unable to lo-
cate the woultd-be knight-errants
who were described by the Lady
of the hall, Miss Kline, as fleeing
down Washington Heights.
Mosher coeds claim there's a
new door in the old Hall this
morning. Rumors report that the
castle crocodiles are to be put back
in the moat any day now.

Experimental Program Trains
Potential CommUnity Leaders

To assist Michigan communities to
discover and train their own potential
community leaders has been the pur-
pose of the Universit's 'experimental
leadership training program which
has been in operation for the past
three years under the Extension Serv-
ice.
Parliamentary Procedure Courses
In addition to courses in training
for leadership, according to Dr. Fred
G. Stevenson of the Extension Service,
a consulting service is provided to as-
sist communities in mapping out pro-
grams to meet their own particular
needs.
Three years ago Dr. Stevenson be-
gan giving sources in parliatmentary
procedure, for community leaders in
towns which requested it. This train-
ing and the conferences for mapping
community programs have lead to
calls for other services of the Ex-
tension Division, such as special lec-
tures, forums, correspondence courses,
films, courses in home and family
living, courses for workers, and in so-
cial civic education.
Statewide Civic Planning
Regular courses are being given in
Jackson, Port Huron, Flint and Pon-
tiac, and conferences and other con-
tacts in about 20 other communities
of the state. Dr. Stevenson assists the
communities in their plans for im-
provement and adult education, as
well as helping various organizations
work out their programs.
There is no standard pattern for
work in the communities. It is worked
out in terms of the leadership and re-
sources available and the needs which
are evident. The community may
choose to deal with a specific local
problem, such as a youth center or
war memorial, or to study some ques-
tion of world or nation-wide inter-
est.
Studies Made Available
For example, Dr. Stevenson deliv-
ered a series of lectures on community
leadership to the central council of
PTA's in Pontiac, and this led to a
forum program aiied at the improve-
ment of living in that city. Eaton
Rapids is conducting a special study
of world organizatiop for peace; Te-
cumseh has been working on its
health problem, and other communi-
ties are dealing with other problems
of local interest.
When a town develops a particular-
ly effective program, it is made avail-
able to other communities in the form
of a report. Dr. Stevenson has pub-
lished two pamphlets through the
University, one on "Democratic Group
Action Through Parliamentary Pro-
cedures" and one entitled "Hints for
Organizers and Leaders of Discussion

Groups," and is working on a third
about program planning for organiza-
tions and communities.
The two most popular courses in
leadership training are the tech-
niques of discussion leadership, which
trains leaders by the clinic method, il-
lustrating the principles by actual
discussion, and the course in parlia-
mentary procedures.
