TWA Strike Arbitration
Still Lacks Completion

Sigler, Van Wagoner Face Record


Opposing Represent
On Settlement as 15
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 4 - Repre-
sentatives of opposing sides in the
Trans World Airline pilots' strike
failed tonight fo complete drafting
of an arbitration agreement which
would put the 28,000-mile system
back into operation.
The dispute, affecting 1,400 pilots
who are members of the Air Line
Pilots Association (AFL), resulted in
the furloughing of 15,000 other em-
ployees over the system when it shut
down. '
Earlier in the day, both the union
and the management had agreed to
the arbitration idea in principle.
David L. Behncke, president of the
Pilots Association had announced in
UN Assembly
May Consider
Quarters, Spain
LAKE SUCCESS, N. Y., Nov. 4-
(/P)-A new move to take the United
Nations headquarters back to Europe
and settle it permanently in the
League of Nations Palace at Geneva
loomed as a possibility tonight in the
UN Assembly.
UN sources said that Soviet Rus-
sia, which once vigorously opposed
Geneva and anything connected with
the old League as a home for the
United Nations, was ready to ask
that the Assembly consider the Swiss
city among the possible headquar-
ters sites.
Meanwhile, the UN Security
Council dropped from its agenda by
unanimous vote the long-dormant
Spanish case and gave the Assembly
the green light for whatever action it
wants to take toward Generalissimo
Francisco Franco.
There was little debate in the
council after Dr. Oscar Lange, of
Poland, offered a resolution to re-
move the case from the Council cal-
endar. Brazil, the United States,
France, Soviet Russia, Great Britain
and Egypt quickly voicedktheir sup-
port and the vote was taken.
Soviet Delegate Andrei A. Gromy-
ko said the Council was trying to
make it "possible for the General As-
'sembly nqt only to discuss but to
make recommendations on the Span-
ish question."
At a steering committee meeting
this morning, Russia, Britain and the
United States indicated they were
ready to take up the site question im-
mediately but the president, Paul-
Henri Spaak, of Belgium, put the
matter over until tomorrow out of
deference to delegates who wanted
more time.
FEPC Drive To
Start Tomorrow
Motorcade Will Open
Local Campaigning
A 10-car motorcade streaming
balloons and banners will leave the
Union doorstep at 1:30 p.m. tomor-
row to mark the opening of the local
campaign for state FEPC legislation.
Literature will also be distributed
beginning tomorrow by members of
AVC, MYDA, IRA and those volun-
teers who indicated their desire to
help at the recent rally at which Sen.
Pepper spoke.
These people are urged to pick up
campaign literature at Rm. 302 of the
Union beginning at 8:00 a.m. tomor-
row, according to George Antonof-
sky, chairman of the FEPC Coordi-
nating Committee.
A request was also voiced by An-
tonofsky for the use of cars during

the circulation of petitions for state
FEPC in line with the state-wide
drive to secure 150,000 signatures by
Dec. 1. Persons willing to lend their
autos to the committee are asked to
contact either Antonofsky at 6245 or
Rabbi Lyman at 2-6585.

Agree in Principle
Employes Vacation

Voting Registration


Chicago that the union "officially ac-
cepted" the arbitration plan.
Federal Mediator Frank P. Douglass
said that he would resume confer-
ences tomorrow in an effort to iron
out the issue of whether TWA should
be permitted to propose to an arbi-
tration panel that pilots flying inter-
national routes be paid on flat
monthly salaries, instead of using the
formula applied to domestic flying.
Pay Formula
This formula is based on base pay,
mileage and hourly pay, and day and
night differentials.
Douglass said that Pan American
Airways and American Overseas Air-
lines both pay their pilots flat salar-
ies, but they maintain international
operations, whereas TWA flies both
domestic and foreign routes.
Meetings Scheduled
Douglass, chairman of the Na-
tional Mediation Board, said he would
meet with Jack Frye, TWA president,
at 8:30 a.m., tomorrow, and at 10
a.m. would meet again with John M.
Dickerman, pilots' union Washing-
ton counsel, and George Spater, a
TWA lawyer.
Both attorneys conferred with
Douglass for nearly 10 hours today.
Provided that an agreement is
reached tomorrow, the airline would
not be able to resume operations be-
fore late Wednesday.
No Returns Ordered
Company officials told newsmen,
however, that no back-to-work order
had been issued for employes and
that none would be sent out until
the arbitration agreement is signed.
Co-pilots, now making an esti-
mated average of $4,800 a year, are
asking as high as $7,800. In addition,
the demands cover vacations, addi-
tional expenses while away from
home and other special allowances.
Big Four Will
Hear Opposing
Views on Trieste
NEW YORK, Nov. 4 - (P) - The
four-power Foreign Ministers Con-
ference agreed in a lengthy opening
session here tonight to hear Yugo-
slavia and Italy present arguments
on the kind of government which
they believe the United Nations
should have over Trieste.
Arguments during the three hour
and forty-five minute session in a
Manhattan hotel room again re-
vealed the basic split between Rus-
sia and the Western powers over
critical issues such as control of Tri-
There were, however, some agree-
ments such as an understanding that
while Yugoslavia and Italy might be
allowed to comment on the projected
boundaries of the disputed Adriatic
port, the boundary issue would not
thereby be reopened.
Russian Foreign Minister Molotov
reportedly lost out on one proposal
to the effect that, after hearing the
Yugoslavs, the foreign ministers
should turn the questions of consti-
tuting a government for Trieste over
to their deputies, allowing the Yugo-
slavs to sit in on the work. This was
not approved.
Kuenzel Sidesteps
Criticism of Union
Franklin C. Kuenzel, Union man-
ager, yesterday declined "to com-
ment for the present" on recent
charges of mismanagement of the
The charges were contained in sev-
eral letters recently received by the
editors of The Daily. The writers
cited the need for Mr. Kuenzel's per-
mission before putting into effect

legislation concerning the Union,

legedly derived from tuition fees and

of victory. Each party read into the

So confident were the Republicans
that this is their year that they dif-

would rule the next Senate and

the upper hand in the House. They
last had a Senate majority in 1932.
Democrats Vary in Predictions
Democratic forecasters saw some-
what varying prospects. Some had
conceded during the campaign that
they felt an off-year election trend
against the party in power had set in.
Rep. John J. Sparkman, of Ala-
bama, chairman of the Democratic
Speakers Bureau, said in an election-
eve statement for the Associated
Press that the Democrats would hang
on to majorities in both branches of
Cognress but would lose some
strength. But National Democratic
Chairman Robert E. Hannegan stuck
to a 'prediction that his party will
pick up power in Congress.

mechanism operating a detonator.

Campaign Schedules
By The Associated Press
Michigan's two major party candi-
dates for governor reached a fork in
the path to political glory today.
An estimated 1,500,000 voters are
expected to turn out today to give the
"go-ahead" sign to one of two men-
Kim Sigler, silver-haired graft bus-
ter, or Murray D. Van Wagoner, for-
mer highway commissioner and gov-
ernor in 1940-42.

observers credit with gaining strength

There are more people eligible to
vote in Michigan today than at any
other time in the state's history, ac-
cording to unofficial registration fig-
If estimates are not too optimistic,
there is an outside chance that the
all-time vote records of 2,210,246 set
in 1944 might be broken.
However, since the turnout in a
non-presidential year has always
fallen off, most candidates have set
their sights on breaking the off-year
vote record of 1,605,241 set in 1938.
Lansing sources, even more con-
servative, guessed at a figure of from
1,450000 to 1,500,000.
Michigan's 17 congressional seats
will be at stake and, officially at least,
there is a contestfor U. S. senator.
Republican Arthur H. Vandenberg

Heavy Turnout
Predicted for
Elections Here
A record vote for an off-year elec-
tion was forecast for Washtenaw
County today by County Clerk Luella
M. Smith.
"Both the great interest in the gu-
bernatorial race and fair weather
prospects should create a heavy vote
at the polls," she said.
While the county registration to-
talled approximatelyr38,000, which
is not a record, Ann Arbor registered
an all-time high of 20,151 and an
absentee-voter total of 435. "Some
county voters have been disfran-
chised by the recent re-registration
requirement," Mrs. Smith stated in
explaining the lower county registra-
The election will include 23 federal,
state and county offices and three

One of the busiest musical or-
ganizations in America, the Orches-
tra presents 150 concerts during; its

The Orchestra is now making its

has been conducting since he was 17.
He is a regular conductor of the Met-
ropolitan Opera House and has made
guest appearances with the Boston,

As is traditional with Sunday con-
certs, the performance will begin at

Seven candidates in today's elec-
tion have termed the Liquor Purchase
Identification card requirement
"philosophically poor" legislation.
Candidates from the two major
parties expressed agreement in their
belief that any legislation capable of
being construed as an infringement
upon the personal rights of individ-
uals is inadvisable legislation.
Five of the seven men declined
to state their opinion unon the
highly controversial question of
the law's constitutionality, but
Eugene F. Black, Republican can-
didate for attorney-general, as-
serted that the law is within con-
stitutional limits.
"The law is perfectly all right, for
it is consistent with the State Con-
stitution and the National Constitu-

Petitions Due Today
Student Legislature petitions are
due at 5 p.m. today in the Union
Student Offices.
Candidates will be required to sub-
mit 50 word qualification statements
and a $1 registration fee when they
turn in their petitions. Eligibility
cards will also be required.
There will be a meeting of all
candidates to discuss radio publicity
at 5:05 p.m. today in Rm. 302 of the

tion. But I realize that it is a pretty
serious hardship and apparently un-
fair to the individuals involved. The
legislation ought to be modified in
some manner," Black stated.
Odin H. Johnson, Democratic can-
didate for state senator, went on rec-
ord as believing the law unconsti-

able. I think this law should be

Thurman B. Doyle, Democratic
candidate of attorney-general stated:
"I'm very much opposed to the phil-
osophy of the law. It strikes me as
an infringement upon personal rights.
Particularly, it is an infringement
upon personal liberty, which must be
guarded at all costs."
Ralph M. Branch, first district rep-
