Bateman, Union Head, Seeks
Position in State Legislature

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the fourth of a
series of articles on local candidates of
all political parties in thecoming elec-
John D. Bateman, president of Lo-
cal 50 of the UAW-CIO, is the Demo-
cratic candidate for the state legis-
lature from the second district, which
includes fourteen out of the twenty
townships in Washtenaw county.
Local 50 was the union in the old
bomber plant at Willow Run but is
now established in smaller plants
around Ypsilanti. Bateman, who
lives at Willow Village, was original-
ly from Nashville, Tenn., where he
was a member of the AFL teamsters
States Strike Cause
Bateman said that most strikes
are caused by workers' grievances
and not by wages. These could be
solved, he said, if there were better
machinery set up to take care of
small problems. Sometimes, he
pointed out, one man's grievance over
30 minutes pay can cause a whole
union to go on strike because there is
no other adequate way of solving the
Entries for Yell
Contest Must
Be In Today
Today is the deadline for submit-
ting entries to the Michigan Yell
Contest, which has been in progress
for the past month to give Michigan
a "real school yell."
The winner will be announced at
the pep rally at Ferry Field Friday
night. Prizes are a trip to the Ohio
State game in Columbus on Nov. 23
with all expenses paid, $10, a CA
Eversharp pen and pencil set and
credit certificates from all local book
stores. In addition the winner will be
able to purchase ofie other set of
tickets for the Ohio State game.
Entries may be turned in to "Yell
Contest" at the desk of the Union.
The judging committee is made up
of Walter B. Rea, dean of students,
Robert Morgan, assistant general sec-
retary of the Alumni Association, and
the cheerleaders.
Famous Rabbi
To Speak Here
Rabbi Stephen S. Wise, president
of the World Jewish Congress, found-
r of the American Zionist Movement
and president of the Jewish Institute
of Religion, will speak on "Jewish
Horizons" at 3 p.m. today at the
B'nai B'rith Hillel Foundation.
Dr. Wise is Rabbi of the Free
Synagogue in New York and editor of
Opinion magazine. He is also a past
president of the Zionist organization.
While in Paris recently, Dr. Wise
attended a conference of Jewish
leaders and sat in at the peace con-
ference. He was a delegate to the
Versailles peace conference in 1919.
Alumni Board Meeting
Approximately 40 people will at-
tend the meeting of the Board of
Directors of the University Alumni
Association to be held here Friday in
connectioh with the Homecoming
Celebration, according to T. Hawley
Tapping, general secretary of the
Alumni Association.
Continuous from 1 P.M.

Bateman is against the idea of la-
bor tribunals because he does not
think any court or board can lay
down a general set of principles that
can apply to all contracts every-
where. He believes however that the
government should force labor and
management to negotiate and reach
an agreement.
Profits Determine Wages
Bateman , agrees with Walter
Reuther, UAW president, when he
says that wages and conditions of
work should be dependent on the
profits a company makes. At the
UAW convention Bateman and his
union supported Reuther in the
Reuther-Thomas fight.
Bateman is not against incorpo-
rating unions. "Labor unions are big
business whether we like it or not,"
he said, "and the union members
have a right to lock at their finan-
cial records."
Declaring that some of the CIO
unions are now completely controlled
by Communists, Bateman said how-
ever that you cannot fight something
by running away from it. "The AFL
doesn't have that trouble because it
is undemocratic," he said.
Against Bonus
Bateman is against the bonus on
the ground that it is only putting
soniething in one pocket and taking
it ouf the other. Rather than a
handout, he favors measures that
will put the ex-GI's on their feet,
such as training in a specific trade.
Declaring himself in favor of state
housing, Bateman said that big
corporations are buying up surplus
property and building $8,000 and
$10,000 homes, which "the working
man can't afford." Bateman wants
state rent control for some years to
come until prices and wages are sta-
bilized. He said that since OPA has
been torn apart by big business it is
now up to the people to control prices
by buying only what they need.
Favors FEPC
Bateman said that Michigan should
get out in front by enacting a strong
FEPC law. He favors raising the sal-
ary of teachers and also that of state
legislators, which he said, would do
away with now prevalent graft. He
also favors giving 18 year olds the
Bateman said that his chances of
being elected are good if there is a
.strong Democratic vote. They de-
pend on William Kelley's chances
(Democratic candidate for Congress)
and Van Wagoner's chances( candi-
date for governor), he stated. If all
the people voted, he said he wouldn't
mind losing but usually only about
36 per cent of the eligible voters go
to the polls. "That's the way Bilbo
and Talmadge get into office," he

Summer, Full-Time Positions

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
a series of articles designed to inform
students of the exact nature of the
services offered by the Bureau of Ap-
pointments and Occupational Infor-
The Bureau of Appointments and
Occupational Information, under the
direction of Dr. Luther T. Purdon,
performs many services which aid
the student in securing positions for

Grad Students
To Take Exam
Tests Will Measure
Scholastic Aptitude
Approximately 440 graduate stu-
dents will take a new type of Gradu-
ate Record Examination at 6:30 p.m.
today in Rackham Lecture Hall.
The examination is being conduct-
ed by the Bureau of Psychological
Services and is under the dir'ection of
Dr. Wilma T. Donahue, clinical direc-
tor of the bureau. Seniors will not
be permitted to take the examination
at this time.
According to Dr. Donahue, this ex-
amination is different from those
given in the past since it measures
scholastic aptitude rather than gen-
eral educational development. In an-
dition, the examination takes three
hours instead of the eight formerly
The advanced examination, which
will be given at 6:30 p.m. Thursday,
is an achievement test in the indi-
vidual's field of concentration.
Dr. Donahue pointed out that the
type of examination used depends on
the purpose for which you are test-
ing. During the spring, she said,
undergraduates will be given the pro-
file tests used before "since general
education tests of this type are more
useful at an undergraduate level."

tion, the summer placement service
supplies students with information
describing available job opportuni-
ties derived from letters and folders
sent to the Bureau.
Practical Experience
This service enables them to vaca-
tion in distant sections of the coun-
try, to gain valuable practical expe-
rience, to mingle with other college
students from all over the country,
and to earn money.
Will Crick, for instance, was as-
sistant transportation agent for the
Transportation Division of Yellow-
stone National Park, while John
Rowley, interested in working out of
doors, was an assistant foreman for
the Blister Rust Control project in
the Cascade Mountains.
'Square Corners'
Practical experience in child care
was gained by Louise Markus, water-
front director at a girl's camp on
Lake Michigan, Dick Cortright, a
music counselor for an eastern boys
camp, and Signe Legge who acted as
governess for three children. Rose-
mary Doty learned how to make
"square corners" as a maid at Pota-
watami Inn.
These are but a few of the kinds of
summer jobs available to the stu-
dents. Sales and clerical jobs, play-
ground supervisors, lab technicians,
social settlement and community
center jobs, forest fire control, and
other opporunities with new and val-
uable experience plus a salary and
fun, are to be had for the asking.

SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 21.-War-

girls may be breaking on matrimonial
reefs in the United States, but they're
still outnumbered by happily-wed
Aussy-Yank couples returning to "the

Love was in bloom when members
of the U.S. armed forces were in Aus-
tralia by the hundreds of thousands
during the war. Finally, the Yanks
sailed away and their brides and fi-
ancees began the long process of

United States.
Hugh J. Murphy, Pacific Coast
representative of the Australian De-
partment of Information, said in an
interview that about 7,000 brides and
their children came to this country

that most have found happiness and
intend to stay, but some have become
heartbroken; and increasing numbers
