Supreme Court,

UMW Strike Plan
Rulino Comnmands Lewis To Cancel
Notice Ending Government Contract
By Thec Associated P'ress
WASHINGTON, March 17-The Supreme Court in effect told
John L. Lewis today that no March 31 strike will be tolerated.
Speeding up its procedure, it ordered its mandate in his case to
go out officially on March 20, instead of March 31 as it would have
Cancel Notice
The ruling commands Lewis to cancel his notice terminating his
soft coal miners' contract with the Government, and notify the mines
he has done so, under pain of a $2,700,000 fine against the United
Mine Workers. Lewis has five days after the issuance of the mandate

in which to comply.
In ordering the striking miner,
back to work Dec. 7, Lewis told
them to carry on until March 31
but did not call off lhis contract

a strike call, for the miners tra-
ditionally do not work without a
Convictions Upheld
The Supreme Court's ruling was
issued March 6 and under the nor-
mal course it would not have op-
erated in time to avert a March 31
walkout. The decision upheld con-
tempt convictions against Lewis
and the union for the previous
strike but reduced Judge T. Alan
Goldsborough's $3,500,000 fine
against the union to $700,000, con-
ditional upon compliance with the
The Government then moved to
have the mandate issued "forth-
with" to safeguard "the public in-
terest." However the 11-day
speed-up meets its purpose just as
well. Counsel for Lewis had op-
posed any speed-up on the ground
it would jeopardize his interests.
The Supreme Court acted today
through a brief order. No opinions
in the case were issued and if the
nine justices were divided, the
fact was not recorded.
Three other xnajor court rulings
today also came on orders, with-
out formal opinions.
The court refused to review
protests by Morton Friedman,
ousted from a job with the War
Manpower Commission by order
of the Civil Service Commission
on the group he was a communist
The Civil Service Commission
said it based its dismissal order
on Friedman's association with
the American Peace Mobilization.
It declared there was "reasonable
ground" for belief that that or-
ganization was formed under
Communist auspices. It cited a.
change in the group's attitude to-
ward World War II beginning
shortly after the German invasion
of Russia.
Speedy Peace
Action Uro'ed
By MacArthur
TOKYO, Ma4rcli 17 -(A')- Gen-
eral MacArthur declared today
that a peace treaty with Japan
should be made quickly, abolish-
ing the occupation and leaving
future guidance of this country
to the United Nations.
"If the United Nations ever is
to succeed, this is the most favor-
able opportunity it ever had," the
occupation commander told Amn-
cican correspondents at a lunch-
"If the United Nations cannot
provide mild controls it cannot
meet anything . . .The Japanese
would accept it , . . It would be
considered protective rather than
repressive. It could continue as
long as it was beneficent.
"I would not envision any mili-
tary formations of any sort after
a peace treaty. Bayonet control
would be a mockery."
Pressed for an opinion on when
a treaty should be made, MacAr-
thur replied., "For the record I'll
say as soon as possible."
He indicated his belief that it
should be conicluded in a matter
of months at most. and at an-
other point said, "It would be ad-
visable for the world to initiate

Troops with amphibious tanks

thousands of families marooned

Two Bills On

Divide Senate
WASHINGTON, March 17-- t/P
-- -The Senate, badly split on the
question of permitting a general
rent increase, got two new rent
controls bills today, neither call-
ing for a general' rise.
1. Senators Taft (Rep., Ohio)
and McCarty (Rep., Wis.) intro-
duced one to continue rent con-
trols until March 1, 1948. They
propose to set up a rent adjust-
ment and decontrol board which
could authorize decontrol or rent
increases on an area basis.
2. Senator Cain (Rep., Wash.)
offered one to continue controls
until Feb. 19, 1948. He contem-

'Democrats Seek Joint
Foreign Policy Action
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, March 17-The
Democratic National Committee
made the unprecedented proposal
to the Republican National Com-i
mittee tonight that they issue a
joint statement affirming both
parties' support of President Tru-
man's plan for action in Greece
and Turkey.
The suggested statement would
serve notice "to all peoples of the
world" that the two major par-
ties are agreed "on the purpose
and method of withstanding the
spread of totalitarian aggression
and enslavement wherever it may
Joint Statement
The joint statement was sug-
gested to Carroll Reece, GOP na-
tional chairman, by Gael Sullivan,
new Democratic executive direc-
tor, in the name of the Democratic
National Committee.
Reece said he will answer Sul-
livan's letter tomorrow, without
.ndicating what his answer will be.

Sullivan said in a statement
that the United States "can and
must check the tide of Commu-
nism" but that 'a divided Amer-
ica" cannot succeed in the tas
and neither can "one political
He added that the world knows
this and is waiting "desperately"
for word of "America's whole heart
and whole vision."
Mobilize Opinion
"If the great party majorities
in America are standing as one,
behind the Truman doctrine,"
Sullivan continued, "the world will
know that America means busi-
ness. And the effect will be to
mobilize a tremendous world pub-
lic opinion in its favor-the only
force that can stop the persua-
sion-by-bayonet of Communism.
"There is no better time than
now for the political parties of
America to tell the world--in so
many words--that they are pre-
pared to back the Truman doc-
trine to t heilt .
Sullivan submitted a suggested
dr'aft of the proposed joint state-
ment to Reece and invited him to
propose and changes "the phras-

City Concludes
With University
One Year Agre emient
Pays City $135,100
Ann Arbor ;Common Council
last night formally approved a
one year contract with the Uni-
versity providing that the city
shall be paid a sum of $135,100 by
the University for utility and po-
lice services.
The unprecedented agreement,
first of its type ever concluded
between a city in the United
States and a state-owned educa-
tional institution, came after a
protracted series of negotiations
between the city and the Univer-
sity. The one year contract is
expected to be supplemented by
further agreements between the
city and the University regarding
city services, according to:Mayor
William E. Brown Jr.
Specifically, last night's con-
tract provides for a payment of
$97,000 in return for utility ser-
vices to the University, and $30,-
000, or one-seventh of the city
police budget, for police protec-
tion to University property. An
amount of $7,500 also included in
this agreement will release the
University from the obligation of
providing free hospital beds for
city employees.
Future yearly contracts will
provide for an annual payment
of approximately $100,000 to the
city for police, fire and utility ser-
vices, according to Mayor Brown.
It is expected that the University
will also defray the cost of a new
fire station which is to be built
in Ann Arbor.

Germany Would Pay
Ten Billion Dollars
By The Associated Press
MOSCOW, Tuesday, March 18
-Soviet Foreign Minister V. M.
Molotov demanded last night
that. Germany psy the Soviet
Union $10,000,000,000 in repara-
tions over a 20-year period, but au-
thoritative sources said the United
States would oppose spreading any
German war payments over so long
a period,
In a savage attack on the
Western Powers, Moltov said
he wished the Four Power For-
eign Ministers to devise a 20-
year reparations plan for the
benefit of the Soviet Union and,
in addition, demanded the im-
mediate nullification of the
merger of the British and Amer-
ican occupation zones in Ger-
many and a Soviet hand in the
German state control of all
cartels and trusts.
Molotov's long tirade against the
Western Powers-the United
States, Great Britain and France
-brought a cold, blunt rebuke
from U. S. Secretary of State
George C. Marshall, who main-
tained an icy mien throughout the
four hour and 15 minute session,
the longest to date.
Authoritative sources said the
American position in regard to
Molotov's reparations plan
would be that two decades would
be too long a time to impose
such a financial burden on Ger-
many and that such a continu-
ing' debt would hinder Ger-
many's recovery for years to
come. Attempts will be made,
the sources said, to have the
Russians agree to cut down the
payment period considerably.
It was understood that Great
Britain probably would adopt a
similar attitude to the 20-year
Meanwhile, French Foreign
Minister Georges Bidault con-
ferred with Prime Minister Stalin
for an hour and a half last night,
French sources said. No informa-
tion was available immediately as
to the nature of their discussion.
Bidault was the first of the
visiting ministers to see Stalin
and it was expected that Mar-
shall and British Foreign Sec-
retary Bevin would follow suit
Moloto's demands, which ex-
ceeded by far the expectations of
even the most pessimistic western
observers, included a proposal
that reparations be paid from
current German production,
