By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, May 3-The government was reported tonight to
have proposed a "package" raise of $5.14 a week to settle the long dis-
tance part of the telephone strike, but the American Telephone and
Telegraph Company turned thumbs down on any such formula.
George S. Dring, A. T. and T. vice president, would not acknowl-
edge that there was a government proposal before the strike negotia-,

Riot Is Quelled
By Soldiers at
Tear Gas Stops Race
Rebellion; One Dead
May 3--(/P)-The army quelled a
raceriot in the disciplinary bar-
racks in which one prisoner was
killed and five guards and six
prisoners injured today, finally
forcing capitulation of 514 white
prisoners who had defied a surren-
der ultimatum throughout the af-
Earlier, 213 Negro prisoners in
another cell block surrendered
after a night and morning of riot-
ing and disorder that forced the
army to send to Kansas City for
additional supplies of tear gas.
The task of clearing the white
prisoners' cell block was complet-
ed at 6:20 p.m. No bodies were
found, and only two of the prison-
ers required hospitalization-one a
prisoner who previously had ma-
laria, and another who was suf-
fering from an old injury. Both
conditions had been aggravated by
the tear gas.
Smouldering Discontent
The rioting grew out of resent-
ment of white prisoners at having
to eat in the same mess hall with
Negroes and the smouldering dis-
content flared into disorder 48
hours ago. This broke into an
open riot last night after three
Negro prisoners attacked a white
man in the shower room.
Maj. Henry C. Triesler, public
relations officer at Fort Leaven-
worth, said the prisoners had dam-
aged cell block 6, the wing in which
the white prisoners were confined,
extensively, and that the men
would be detained overnight in an-
other block.
Work To Be Resumed
He said work would be resumed
at the prison tomorrow by some
prisoners whose records were good,
and that a full work schedule
would be resumed Monday. Bar-
ring unforeseen developments, he
said, the barracks would be back to
normal by Tuesday.
Col. Graeme Parks, comman-
dant of the barracks, was conduct-
ing an investigation tonight in an
effort to segregate the ringleaders.
Pleas for court martial proceed-
ings would await completion of the
investigation, he said.
Village Council

The initial session of Willow
Run's first Village Council, com-
posed of newly-elected representa-

William Stright, chairman of the
eletion committee, disclosed the
plans for this organizational meet-
ing simultaneously with his an-
nouncement of the final returns
of last week's Council election.
"Today's meeting," he said, "will

Counciland represent the apart-
ment area's ten election districts.
Previously announced intentions
of making of the dormitory area,
housing 1,500 single students, a

cording to Stright, "because the
dorms submitted no candidates for
election to the Council."

To Be Built
FedIeral FundS
Will Be Allocate
Latest step by the University to
meet the enrollment crisis is tem-
porary classrooms.
Plans for a two-story tempor-
ary classroom building, with 32
classrooms and 4,300 square feet
of laboratory space, to be built
here at federal expense, were an -
nounced yesterday by Plant Su-
perintendent Walter Roth.
The .building, to be erected on
E.Washington between the Health
Service and the University laun-
dry, is expected to relieve some of
the demand on classroom space
by the University's unprecedented
University officials expect the
building to be completed for the
fall term. The contractors plan
to start work on the foundation
this week.
One-story Warehouse
Construction of a one-story
warehouse on Glen Drive, near
the University's coal sidings, is
planned as part of the same pro-
ject. The warehouse will be 218
feet in length and 52 feet wide.
The cost of grading and other
preparation of the sites will be
the only expense of the project
to the University.
The classroom building will
accommodate 900 students and is
intended for use only until suf-
ficient permanent facilities are
available. Floor space will total
13,000 square feet.
Salvage Lumber
Salvage lumber, obtained from
wartime projects in Illinois, will
be used for the interior of the
classroom building. Both this
building and the warehouse will
have heavy timber framework and
asbestos board exteriors. The roof
trusses will be shipped already as-
Construction will be in the
hands of the Federal Public Works
Administration. The project is
part of a program, planned by the
federal education department, to
provide assistance to educational
institutions faced with serious ov-
ercrowding of facilities.

By deciding that two ties in two

Arbor men have at last solved the
mystery of their vanishing ward-
The men, Ray Greuzke and
Lewis Horvath, have for two weeks
been seeking an explanation for
the gradual disappearance of most
of the clothing from their room at
353 S. Main. Thursday night they
visited a downtown restaurant,
and had a good laugh about how
much a tie dangling from the neck
of one of the waiters resembled
one of their own.
They returned to the same res-
taurant the next night, however,
and did not laugh when they saw
the same waiter sporting another
very familiar cravat. Instead, they
became suspicious and phoned
Upon arrival of detectives, it was
discovered that the waiter, Stanley
Ashcraft, was also a roomer at 353
S. Main. He soon confessed to]

stealing the clothing, waived ex-
amination, and was bound over to
Circuit Court for trial.
