Telephone Strikers Deplore
Decision To Bargain Locally

Still in good spirits after 31 days
on strike, four women telephone
employes and one construction!
man picketing in front of the local
office of the Michigan Bell Tele-
phone Company held that the un-
seasonable snow made for "good
brisk weather."
They were less cheerful, how-
ever, about the decision of the Na-
tional Federation of Telephone
Workers to turn negotiations over
to local unions. This was a mis-
take, the construction man said,
adding that "the national union is
like a bundle of sticks. We're

dren want murder and sudden
death, as is shown by the fact that
more children than adults listen
to this type of program."
Complain to Advertisers
If parent-teacher groups want
to do something about objection-
able programs they should com-
plain to the advertisers rather than
the broadcasters, Prof. Abbot de-,
The increasing importance of
FM radio, in which stations owned
by schools play a promient part,
will probably force the commercial
sponsors to improve the quality of
their children's programs in order
to compete with the educational
stations for listening audience,
Prof. Abbot said.

Dislike Wage eI'VasIct
None of them liked the prospect
:a $2 to $4 wage increase. "It's
not enough," one of the women op-
erators said. "With living costs
he way they are now, we need at
least $6."
Some of the operators have
taken part-time jobs, one of the
women said, "and some are work-
ing full time. But everyone is tak-
ing his turn on the picket line."
Cable-cutting was unanimously
condemned by the picketers. "We
ion't know who's doing it," one of
them said, "but it's just a blot on
Decriies Proposal
In a telephone conversation Earl
C. Quackenbush, chairman of local
301's strike committee, told The
Daily that "settlement on the basis
of a $2 to $4 wage increase would
make Michigan telephone workers
a very unhappy bunch."
He added that one of the local
workers had told him that if the
strike is settled on this basis,
"we'd better start saving now for
next year's strike fund."
Campus Groups
To Discuss NSO
Representatives from all campus
organizations have been asked to
attend the meeting of the Stu-

ganizations Committee at 4 p.m.
today in Rm. 308 of the Union.
The Committee will discuss its
function in relation to the Legis-
lature and to the National Student

sign a new wage contract in St. Paul, Minn., in the presence of Leonard Johnson (left) state labor
conciliator, and J. Ii. Kremers of Omaha, viec-president of Northwestern Bell Telephone Co. The
contract called for a wage increase averaging $3.60 a week for the company's 17,500 employes in
Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska and the Dakotas.

366 Students
Are Awarded
Names of 366 recipients of the
Regents-Alumni Scholarships for
1,47-48 have been announced by
Erich A. Walter, director of the
Office of Student Affairs and
chairman of the scholarship com-
The scholarships, providing for
payment of semester fees for a stu-
dent's freshman year at the Uni-
versity, are awarded to Michigan
high school graduates on the basis
of high school scholarship, leader-
ship qualifications and the desire
for higher education.
"Successful scholarship per-
formance will permit renewal of
the scholarship through sopho-
more, junior and senior years,"
Walter said. He pointed out that
a number of students honored at
the recent Honors Convocation
were Regents-Alumni scholars.
The purpose of the scholarships
is to help the development of lead-
ership and productive citizensship
in all parts of Michigan. Walter
emphasized that at least one
scholarship is available for every
accredited high school in the

it has had many renowned con-
ductors: Friz Scheel, Carl Pohlig,
Leopold Stokowski and Ormandy.
Direction of the orchestra dur-
ing the Festival will be shared by
Eugene Ormandy and the associ-
ate conductor, Alexander Hilsberg.
Ormandy, who will conduct the
first, fourth and fifth concerts, has
been head of the orchestra since
the stait of the 1938-1939 season.
Born in Budapest, Hungary in
1899, Ormandy began violin stud-
ies when a little over three years
old. He concluded his studies un-
der the famous Hubay and earned
his professorship in music at 17.
He concluded several concert tours
before coming to the United States
in 1921.

The application of a new tech-
nique in preparing organic cell
components for study with tne
electron microscope, and observa-
tion of chromosomes in their min-
ute resting stage - both of which
may aid cancer research - have
been performed successfully by a
University geneticist, Prof. Wil-
liam Hovanitz, of the botany de-
Isolation and drying of chromo-
somes with a minimum of distoir-
tion of their normal shape - a
critical procedure - constitutes
this latest development in the
study of cell material at magnifi-
cations greater than those possibie
with the ordinary light micro-
scope. This represents one of the
first successful attempts to study
chromosomes which have been
separated from their cells. Isolat-
ing the chromosomes from the cell
and its nucleus is done by the phy-
sical method of fragmentation and
"differential centrifugation," for
example, by breaking the cell
down, whirling its contents at
high speeds in a salt solution and
separating the various parts.
The chromosomes are isolated in
the salt solution to preserve their
natural character until they are
prepared for drying. After this
step, the particles are mounted on
the fine screens used, for electron
microscope preparations and their
images are observed on a fluores-
cent screen.
Wide application of the techni-
que is seen by Prof. Hovanitz

in biological and medical research
for the study of the minute cell
structure, both normal and ab-
normal, of animals and plants.
He believes that the method may
be of great value in investigating
the nature of cancer and other
diseases affecting mankind.
In a research project which he
has been carrying on for several
months, chicken red blood cells
and mice liver cells secured from
colonies of these animals housed
in various laboratories of the Uni-
versity, were used.
Prof. Hovanitz presented the
results of his research in a paper
which he delivered last Thursday
before the National Academy of
Sciences in Washington, D.C.

Three Point Cultural
Program Is Outlined
The University Committee on
Intercultural Relations, at a meet-
ing yesterday took action to re-
quest the support of Senator Ar-
thur H. Vandenberg and Repre-
sentative Earl C. Michener for
continuation of the State Depart-
ment's cultural relations program.,
The Mundt Bill, now before the
House, would give legal status to
the cultural relations program, and
would pave the way for an appro-
priation financing the program.
Committee Action
The University Committee's ac-
tion was limited to three points.
It supported continued appoint-
ment of cultural attaches to vari-
ous countries where such officials
are now.
The Committee urged support
for the maintenance of libraries of
information about the United
States in cultural centers.
Interchange of Persons
Continuation of the program of
interchange of persons, students
and leaders between the United
States and other countries was re-
quested by the Committee.
Opinion was expressed by the
Committee that there should be no
question about continuing these
three phases of the program since
they have already proven success-
The University has been active
in the exchange of students, scien-
tists and educators with other
Faculty Service
Several faculty members, Dean
Hayward Keniston of the literary
college, Prof. Irving Leonard of
the Romance Language depart-
ment, Prof. Dudley Phelps and
others, have served as cultural at-
taches or lecturers, particuarly in
South American countries.
The action of the Committee
parallels similar recommendations
made at the Conference of For-
eign Student Advisors held the
end of April in Chicago.
Senior Class Dues
Literary college seniors have
been requested by the class offi-
cers to turn in or mail their class
dues to Barbara Raymer, 407 In-
The dues of $1 are used to pur-
chase the class gift and to set up
the basis for the Class of '47
