Chile Creates
Second Base
In Antarctica
British Protests Fail
To HaltExpansion
SANTIAGO, Chile, Feb. 18-(/P)
-President Gabriel Gonzalez Vi-
dela of Chile formally established
a second military base in the Ant-
arctic today in defiance 'of Brit-
ish protests.
Gen. Roman Canas Montalva,
Chilean Army Chief of Staff, was
quoted in a radioed press dispatch
as saying the action constituted a
step toward "building up Chile as
a Pacific power."
Dispatches received at the Pres-
idents office said the base
was established of Grahamsland,
which the Chileans call O'Hig-
ginsland after their famous sol-
dier-patriot of Irish descent, Ber-
nardo O'Higgins.
Pie-Faced Slice
In a speech on the frozen soil of
O'Higginsland, President Con -
zaler declared anew his nation's
claims to a pie-shaped slice of the
Antarctic extending all the way to
the South Pole. This would in-
clude not only O'Higginsland, but
the Southern Shetlands as well.
Chile's sovereignty over that
area was proclaimed by President
Pedro Aguirre Cerda on Nov. 6,
1940. He defined the area as ex-
tending all the way to the South
Pole from 53 to 90 degrees west
Landed Yesterday
Gonzalez landed yesterday at
Port Sovereignty on disputed
Greenwich Island, where Chile has
a weather station. In a speech
there he indicated he would in-
voke the Western Hemisphere De-
fense Pact in support of Chilean
This line of thought was devel-
oped also today by Argentina,
which has claims to the British-
administered Falkland Islands 300
miles east of Argentina's coast,
and also to areas in the Antarctic
region. In some instances Chilean
and Argentine claims conflict.
The Argentine statement de-
fined the Falkland Islands and her
dependencies as part of the Inter-
American security zone.
Adler To yive
Prof. Mortimer J. Adler, of Chi-
cago University, will present the
Neo-Thomist view in the Lane
Hall lecture series on "The Inter-
pretation of History" at 8:15 p.m.
today in Rackham Lecture Hall.
Professor of the philosophy of
law at Chicago since 1930, Prof.
Adler will give the second lecture
of the series which will be con-
cluded Monday with an address by
Dr. Reinhold Niebuhr, of Union
Theological Seminary.
An author of many articles and
several books, Prof. Adler will ad-
vance the movenent began by
Catholic scholars to re-emphasize
the affinities of religion and phil-

Aquinas. Two of Prof. Adler's lat-

Dutcher will succeed Harvey
Weisberg, '50L, as president. In
relinquishing the chair to the new
president, Weisberg listed the gen-
eral functions of student govern-
ment, and outlined a group of
suggestions for Legislature action
this semester. He included sug-
gestions that the Legislature work
for better student representation
on various boards and commit-
tees composed of students and
faculty, that the Legislature be
brought before the student body
by the preparation of Legislature
booklets, Legislature training
course, open committee meetings'
and hearings and that papers on
student government be required
in primary English courses.
Appointed as Proxy
In line with a request of the
Student Affairs Committee, the
Legislature voted to appoint Weis-
berg as a proxy to one of the
Legislature members on the SAC.
A motion that the Legislature
participate in a mock United Na-
tions Assembly, to be held at the
University of Chicago next month,
was also passed by the Legisla-
ture last night. Three delegates,
to be selected by the Legislature
cabinet, will be sent to the As-

passage of the Taft-Ellender-

A proposal to prepare a list of
speakers for a debate on civil.
liberties, to be sponsored by the
Legislature, was postponed for
consideration at a later date.

Engineers in

Activity Plan
Council Stresses
Student Projects
The Engineering Council re-
ceived an overwhelming vote of
confidence for its plans to stimu-
late and coordinate activities and
projects for all engineering stu-
dents at a convention held last
night in The Union.
Student leaders who represent-
ed every engineering society on
campus attended the banquet and
meeting which followed it. Also
present were the officers of every
class in the engineering college.
Activity Cards Pay Off
Ev Ellin, president of the En-
gineering Council, and Saul Saul-
son, treasurer, together outlined
a program designed to encourage
student participation in extra-
curricular activities.
"We already have the funds,
and tonight we are building the
machinery to make the activity
cards sold to engineers last fall
pay off in the form of an inten-
sified series of projects, activities,
and social functions," Ellin said.
These will be designed to appeal
to every level of student interest."
Individual Responsibility
The foundation of the entire
plan is that each society will take
the responsibility for initiating
and carrying out at least one
project or affair this semester us-
ing the funds which the Engineer-
ing Council received from activity
card sales, he continued. The
Council will keep a complete
schedule of these events, seek to
coordinate all activities, and ren-
der all other possible assistance to
each group.
The convention voted unani-
mously to strongly petition the en-
gineering college administration
for office space to be used as a
headquarters by all the' societies.
It also approved plans to seek of-
ficial readoption of the Honor Sys-
tem in the engineering college,
The Engineering Council was
also authorized by the convention
to seek a clarification of the elec-
tive program in the engineering
college curriculum. It will also seek
wider publicity for meetings and

This was the opinion expressed
last night by Dr. Harry Shulman,
labor relations umpire for the
Ford Motor Company in a talk
before the Economics Club.
"One of the difficulties of col-
lective bargaining agreements is
that they are called contracts," Dr.
Shulman said, pointing out that
workers' grievances are so varied
that a very flexible contract plus
a non-legalistic interpretation of
its provisions is necessary in day
to day negotiations, rather than
literal court interpretation.
Dr. Shulman predicted an in-
creased use by labor and manage-
ment of the umpire device for set-
tling disputes, because it "provides
an assurance to employes that
they can appeal policy decisions
by their superiors and get an im-
partial hearing."
He pointed out, however, that
the umpire's powers are strictly
"limited to interpretation and ap-

WASHINGTON, Feb. 18-The Senate voted today to try to hold
