Soviets Give
Alleged Plan
Big Play-Up
Say Joint Talks
Proposed by U.S.
MOSCOW, May 11-(E)-The
Soviet press and radio gave wide
publicity today to Russian accept-
ance of what they said was an
American proposal to hold a two-
power conference to discuss and
settle their differences.
The Russian statement by an
official news agency that the
Soviet Government "agrees to the
proposal to proceed to the dis-
cussion and settlement of differ-
ences existing between us" came
with considerable surprise to offi-
cial American circles here.
They were quick to point out
that to date there has been no
agreement on any actual talks,
where they would be held, who
would take part, or what the
agenda would be.
Meanwhile Henry A. Wallace
addressed an "open letter" to
Premier Stalin, urging immedi-
ate action by Russia and the
United States to end the cold
war and insure a "Century of
He proposed, among othei
things, that the two major world
powers initiate a general arma-
ments reduction and outlaw all
methods of mass destruction.
The Soviet announcement of the
exchange of views created con-
siderable excitement among the
Russian people. Pravda and Iz-
vestia gave a large share of their
space to the story which attracted
immediate attention. There were
discussions among the thousands
of laborers and office workers on
their way to work. Newspaper
vendors sold copies swiftly.
These declarations by both
governments of willingness to
discuss and resolve differences
brought a ray of brightness to
the storm clouds long massed
over Soviet-American relations',
Official American circles point-
ed out that the exchange consti-
tuted a frank statement of policy
on each side. They pointed out
that there was a great gap be-
tween the American statement
I and the Soviet statement.

Injunction for Railroads
To Remain---Kallenbach
General Power to Protect Public Safety
Held as Basis for Recent Federal Seizure
The present temporary injunction which halted the railway strike
Tuesday night "will undoubtedly be continued as long as the strike
threat exists," Prof. Joseph E. Kallenbach, of the political science
department, said yesterday.
Continued wage negotiations are the only possible next move
in the controversy, he said, although agreeing that it may take a long
time before a final settlement is made.
Prof. Kallenbach believed the Federal court anti-strike injunc-
tion is "based on the general power of the government to take

action to protect the public safety
and welfare."
"The Taft-Hartley Act," he
said, "does not cover the railroads
in a private labor-management
dispute, which makes them
exempt from the Act's clauses
permitting injunctions against
strikes to be issued."
However, he pointed out that
the Railway Labor Disputes Act
governing rail negotiations
doesn't apply to strikes against
the government, and the Ad-
ministration's seizure of the
roads has the effect of making
railway , workers technically
"government employes."
Prof. Kallenbach likened the
railway situation before the in-
junction to the order issued
against John L. Lewis to get the
coal miners back in the pits dur-
ing the coal strike of November
and December, 1946.
"The question of whether work-
ers in a government-seized in-
dustry are government employes
was brought up then, and was
only partially settled. The same
question is involved now," he as-
In this connection, however,
he cited the final decision of
the Supreme Court in the Lewis
case which held that Federal
courts could issue injunctions
against a strike when "the gov-
ernment is in control, and the
public safety is at stake."
A bill proposed by Senator Wil-
liam F. Knowland (Rep., Calif.)
to bring the railroad workers un-
der the provisions of the Taft-
Hartley Law was ter'med by Prof.
Kallenbach "rather belated"' be-
cause "the strike negotiations
have already gone beyond the
stage of a private labor-manage-
ment dispute."

Heads of the three unions in-

man's order.
Afterward, they said Royall told
them he hasn't authority yet to
deal with them but "will get in
touch with us" again in a few
Secretary Royall told reporters
earlier the Army was not disposed
to enter negotiations with the un-
ions for the time being.
A quick settlement was predict-,
ed by M. W. Clement, president of
the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Clement told reporters at the'
Pennsy's annual stockholders
meeting at Philadelphia that he
believed a settlement will come
before May 19.
That is the date Federal Judge
T. Alan Goldsborough set for a
hearing here on the government's
plea for an injunction to replace
the temporary restraining order
granted by the judge last night to
stop the strike.
It was a question of bowing to

heavy fines for the three union

Politial Club
Will Be Held
Also Ask Speech
Ban Clarification
Politics was in the spotlight at
the Student Affairs Committee
meeting yesterday as the group
ruled not to release the member-
ship lists of campus political clubs
and again tackled the problem of
political speeches.
The SAC moved that student
membership in political groups
shall not be released except by
specific request of the student
involved. The ruling was an
outgrowth of a request by Max
Dean, chairmain of the local
Wallace Progressives.
Passed without a dissenting
vote, the rule expressed sentiments'
voiced by committee members who
declared political beliefs should
not be made public. Under this
rule potential employers or other
persons asking for student rec-
ords would not have access to po-
litical club affiliations unless au-
thorized by the student involved.
The "speakers ban" was again
in the news as Jay Nolan, chair-
man of the Democrats for Douglas,
asked the SAC for an interpreta-
tion of the rule as affecting co-
sponsored political rallies.
Nolan asked if political rallies
co-sponsored by all the political
clubs on campus would be per-
mitted under the rule. Discuss-
ing the question, committee
members pointed out that at
least one regent has privately
expressed approval of large
scale political rallieas if attended
by members of recognzed po-
litical clubs.
The matter was referred to
Dean Erich Walter, SAC chair-
man, and Prof. Carl Brandt, Uni-
versity Lecture Committee chair-
man, for study.
The SAC also belabored William
Dannemiller and Ralph Andrews,
organizers of the Committee for
the Advancement of Capitalistic
Enterprise, for failure to go
through proper channels in at-
tempting to organize their group,

Douglas Dems
Plan Meeting
Convention Date Set
By CityOrganization
Plans for a statewide convention
of supporters of William 0. Doug-
las for President were formulated
last night at a meeting of the
Democrats for Douglas in the Ann
Arbor City Hall.
The convention, which was ten-
tatively scheduled to be held in
Flint on May 28, will coordinate
the activities of state and regional
Douglas groups. The Chicago
William 0. Douglas for President
Club will also be represented, as
well as groups from the University
of Illinois and the Chicago area.

Saying that they did not favor
charging such admissions unless
other means of increasing income
could not be found, they contin-
ued by stating, "We believe firmly
in the principle that all students
should have the privilege of at-
tending athletic events without

letic plant have been made in the

as being necessary.
