Martin Says
Draft Pla.iWill
Get House OK
-Speaker Martin (R-Mass.) to-
day predicted House approval of
a stopgap draft plan but express-
ed his opposition to a Senate pro-
posal for one-year of training for
thousands of 18-year-olds.
Martin told a news conference
that the House Rules Committee
would send the controversial te-
porary draft measure to the
House floor this week. Then the
House will approve it probably the
following week, he added,
It calls for registration of men
18 through 30 years with those
from 19 through 25 subject to
two years of compulsary military
Martin said a provision allow-
ing President Truman to put the
actual draft machinery into
operation 60 days after the bill
becomes a law would be included.
This is necessary, he explained,
because Congress will quit June
18 and so would not be in session
at the time for a decision on ac-
tual inductions.
Martin said there is no possi-
bility of the House accepting a
substitute training plan now
pending in the Senate. It calls, in
addition to the draft, for one-
year training of 161,000 18-year
olds and was developed as a sub-
stitute for Universal Military

Spurns UAW
Pay Demands
State May Try To
End Chrysler Strike
DETROIT, May 15-(P)-The
Ford Motor Company tossed a
bombshell into automotive labor
negotiations today by serving no-
tice on the United Automobile
Workers (CIO) that it would fight
to the last the union's demands
for a 30-cent hourly increase, even
proposing a wage cut.
John S. Bugas, Ford vice presi-
dent and director of industrial re-
lations, told Ken Bannon, the un-
ion's Ford director, in a letter that
one of the company's five specific
proposals in contract negotiations,
which probably will be reopened
before July 15, would be to elim-
inate wage differentials between
Ford and its major competitors.
Asked if such a compan'y pro-
posal meant that Ford would
fight for a wage cut, a com-
pany spokesman quoted Bugas
as saying:
"It certainly does!"
The message was directed to the
UAW at a time when 75,000
Chrysler workers were out on
stiike for a third round of post-
war pay raises.
A few hours before the Ford
ultimatum was received Emil Ma-
zey, acting UAW president in the
absence of Walter Reuther, de-
clared in Philadelphia that the
striking Chrysler employes were
waging the nation's "most impor-
tant" labor battle.
Victory in the Chrysler strike
will get nearly all workers a
wage boost without a strike,"
Mazey said.
Meantime, the four - day - old
Chrysler strike, marked thus far
only by verbal skirmishing, may
become the subject of a United
States Supreme Court decision, a
state official said today.
Philip Weiss, chairman of the
State Labor Mediation Board, re--
vealed the state intends to push
Miciigan's Bonine-Tripp Labor'
Law-and how it applies to the
Chrysler Corp. strike-up through
the chain of courts until it hits
the top.

Comic Books
Wholesale magazine dealers
were presented yesterday with a
police department blacklist of 50
comic books now being sold in the
Ann Arbor area.
The ruling came from Capt. Al-
bert Heusel, acting police chief,
who was authorized by Prosecut-
ing Attorney Edmund DeVine to
stop the sale of the magazines.
Heusel said he first brought the
comic books to the attention of
DeVine after complaints from
"hundreds of citizens" that orany
were not comic at all, but grue-
some literature. which was un -
desirable for youngsters to read.
"Many comic books are all
right," Heusel said, "but the 50
I blacklisted contained the most

kinds of blood and thunder."
