Chance Seen
To End Rail
Strike Threat
President Hopes
To Avert Walkout
WASHINGTON, May 5-(_)-_
A President Truman still hopes to
sidetrack the threatened railroad
strike, the White House said to-
day.
As if to underscore his optim-
ism, the President's office an-
nounced that he will leave-by'
train-for the Pacific Northwest'
June 3.
That is just three weeks and
two days beyond the May 11
strike deadline set by the 190,000
members of three key rail unions
-the Brotherhoods of Locomotive
Engineers, Firemen and Engine-
men and Switchmen.
The President's hope for a
peaceful settlement of the wage
dispute was relayed to White
house reporters by Press Sec-
retary Charles G. Ross after the
collapse of the latest mediation
effort.
Frank P. Douglas, chairman
of the National (Railway) Me-
diation Board, and Francis A.
O'Neill, Jr., a member, conferred
for nearly an hour and a half
on the matter with John R.
Steelman, presidential assistant.
Ross said Steelman relayed the
results of the conference to Mr.
Truman, although the President
did not confer personally with the
mediators.
Ross, said he did not know
.vhether Union representatives
would be called to the White
House for a conference. Then he
added:
"There still are a number of
Says left in which the parties can
settle their disagreement. There
is still some hope-anybody's en-
titled to hope."
Douglass came back from
Chicago last night to report the
failure of his special mediation
effort. The strike is set to begin
at 6 a.m. (Various local times)
next Tuesday. Yard workers are
to quit at that hour; and train
crews out on runs are to bring
their trains to their destination
or tie-up points before walking
out.
The Louisville and Nashville
Railroad notified the Association
of American Railroads that on
Friday it will stop accepting .ship-
ments of livestock, poultry and
perishables.
The Association said, however,
that "we do not contemplate any
general embargo order now. It, is
up to the individual lines, which
know their own situations best, to
take what action they may deem
necessary in the acceptance of
shipments."
Government agencies also said
they would take no action to-
ward any embargo unless or-
dered to do so by the White
House.
Railroad sources here said,
however, they expect to see
shipments of perishables drop
sharply within the next few
days unless steps are taken to
head off the strike.
The Union said they would per-
mit their members to operate
troop, hospital and milk trains.
French Films

Shown Today
Two French films, "L'Atalante"
and "Zero for Conduct," will be
presented by the Art Cinema
League at 8:30 p.m. today, tomor-
row and Saturday in the Lydia
Mendelssohn Theatre.
In "L'Atalante" a girl marries a
young barge-master whose crew
consists of an eccentric old sailor
anid a ragged 'street urchin. Thie
monotony of cabin, water and
landscape soon lead the girl, Juli-
ette, to desert her husband. The
old sailor, Pere Jules, finally
brings Juliette back to the barge-
master.
"Zero for Conduct" shows the
revolt in the minds of a group of
schoolboys against their teacher-
oppressors. The teachers are pi_-
tured as the boys see them, in a
fantastic "dream of revolt."
Tickets for the films are on sale
at 2 p.m. daily at the Box Office.

VITAL ISSUE:
Spring Parley To Offer
World Peace Discussion
By GEORGE WALKER
Pessimists and optimists, realists and idealists will gather in the
Union tomorrow to investigate, discuss, and perhaps arrive at an an-
swer to the most vital question of the times: "Is world peace possible?"
At 4:15 p.m. in Kellogg Auditorium, George Edwards, President
of the Detroit Common Council, will launch the 13th Annual Spring
Parley with a speech on the possibilities of world peace. Then, at 8:30
p.m., interested students will meet in the Union for the first in a se-
ries of panels, on the general topic "Trouble Spots of the World."
Prof. John L. Brumm, Chairman of the Department of Journalism,
now on retirement furlough, gave his whole-hearted support to the
Spring Parley in a statement to The Daily yesterday.

Seek Emergency Act
Before Mandate Ends
NEW YORK, May 5--l)-An
emergency United Nations regime
to rule Palestine appeared tonight
to be the temporary UN answer
to the Holy Land problem.
The first glimmer of what the
58-nation assembly might do to
meet the immediate crisis in Pal-
estine emerged from two closed
sessions of a 12-nation group at
the French delegation offices.
Jerusalem Truce Fails
The Assembly's Political Com-
mittee-in effect the assembly it-
self-asked this sub-committee
yesterday to go over the whole
complicated issue and try to find
a solution before Britain ends her
mandate over Palestine on May
15.
Meanwhile, violence broke out
briefly in Jerusalem tonight as ef-
forts to engineer an Arab-Jewish
truce in the Holy City apparently
bogged down.
After a peaceful day throughout
the city, the thunder and flash
of explosives erupted in the Mos-
lem Shiekh Jarrah quarter, a few
blocks north of the old walled
city.
No Permanent Answer
The UN committee emphasized
that the suggested emergency ad-
ministration would not be a UN
trusteeship, advocated by the
United States, nor a permanent
answer to the Arab-Jewish dead-
lock.
The idea of a single independent
country in Palestine has been ad-
vanced by the Arabs but has re-
ceived little support among the
delegates. The Jews have an-
nounced plans to proclaim a Jew-

+)to learn about and discuss the im-
portant questions of the day. I am
especially pleased with the topic
chosen for this parley," Prof.
Brumm said.
Prof. Brumm, who was associat-
ed with the parleys in their early
days, recaled how high student
enthusiasm was at some of the first
meetings.
"At one of the panels," he said,
"students directed so many ques-
tions at. e speakers that individ-
ual questions could not be distin-
guished. We had to have students
write their questions down and
bring them to the chairman."
First Series
The first series of panels starts
at 8:30 p.m. tomorrow in the Un-
ion. Under the general heading
"Trouble Spots in the World,"
this panel will be discussed in
three sections: "Europe," "The
Near East" and "The Far East."
General topic of the Saturday
panels will be "Alternative Roads
to World Peace." In three separ-
ate panels, students will discuss
world trade agreements, the world
bank, the UN, and cultural and re-
ligious exchanges.
Short Talks
Panel leaders, to be announced
tomorrow, will give short talks
on the, nature of the individual
problems. Then students will join
in an open discussion.

All-oCamps
Book Drive
An all-campus drive to collect
books for a recreational library
for the patients at the Vet-
erans Readjustment Center was
launched by AVC today.
The VRC, a special hospital op-
erated by the University Regents,
is designed to treat Michigan vet-
erans of World War II for mild
emotional disturbances and incipi-
ent mental illnesses.
The VRC tries to create a home-
like atmosphere for the patients
and reduce resemblance to a hos-
pital to a minimum. Part of the
recreational program is to encour-
age pleasant, worthwhile reading
by the patients.
Until now, VRC has depended
on private donations, which have
not provided as many books as
are needed, according to Jack El-
liott, book drive chairman.
Elliott urged donations of good
books of all kinds, particularly
current fiction, cartoon books, hu-
mor and travel.
Collection points have been set
up at the League, Union, on the
diagonal, in Mosher-Jordan, the
East and West Quads.
Union Petitions
Petitions for student vice-
presidential positions in the
Michigan Union will be re-
ceived from 3 to 5 p.m. today
and tomorrow at the student
offices.
The petitions should bear 200
signature and specify the
school or lege the petitioner
intends to represent.

Wallace Group
To Open Drive
A membership drive to recruit
students in a "fight against seg-
regation" will be conducted by
the Wallace Progressives on the
Diag today and tomorrow.
Tickets will be on sale at the
Progressives' booth for the party
rally in Detroit on May 13 which
will feature an address'by Henry
Wallace.
The Third Party advocates will
base their appeal for new mem-
bers on the premise that the Pro-
gressive Party is the only one
"actually fighting to protect civil
and political rights." A statement
from the group's Executive Board
said the recruiters will stress the
slogan "No one is too big or
too small to be affected by the
current repressive steps of the
bi-partisan administration."

An estimated five to ten per
cent of the University failed to
make their eight and nine o'clocks
yesterday as Daylight Saving
Time came to Ann Arbor.
Rooms displayed student-less
rows and several professors, who
best remain unnamed, failed to
get to their early classes, a Daily
survey revealed.
University clocks had made the
shift to fast time efficiently un-
der the direction of Chief Build-
ing Custodian Edward S. Warren,
except in one instance. The big
clock in Yost Field House is still
limping along one hour behind the
new Daylight Savings Time.
But the clock on the county
court house is still on Eastern
Standard time. Court business is
conducted on state legal time
which is EST, county auditor J.
M. Rempp said yesterday and no
change can be made in the court
,house clock until the Board of
Supervisors meets on May 11. Ac-
tion at that time is doubtful be-
cause of a state law, he said.
To complicate matters still fur-
ther, the clock, running on slow
time, is fifteen minutes behind on
its own.
An extra hour's worth of pas-
sengers piled up at the Grey-
hound bus station yesterday
morning after the time shift. Head
ticket agent John Schuck said that
some people missed their busses
and were late for work. The
busses are running on Eastern

straighten out in a day or so,"

The proposed group, according

The organizing group recalled
a former Bus. Ad council, which

Next fall, it is anticipated that
the entire school will be in the

Stan Kenton, new wonder-boy
of the nation's bandleaders, has
a different goal in music than

music, takes a critical artist's

If it doesn't progress beyond
its present scope Kenton feels
that it will remain a folk music

earlier forms of Jazz. "Jazz is the
only culture that America has
ever offered to the world; all
other forms are of European de-
