UN prestige.
From Acheson, Truman also re-

Phoenix Funds To Help
Scientists Explore Life

(EDITOR'S NOTE - This is the
third in a series of articles designed
to acquaint Daily readers with pre-
sent and future plans for the use of
Phoenix Project funds.)
The plant and animal kingdoms
will be studied inside and out with
the aid of radioactive materials if
the Phoenix Project is able to

external workings and effect on

continue his work in uncovering
the basic properties of the chem-

Photosynthesis, that secret
process by which plants trans-
form light energy into chemical
energy and store it for later use,
will be studied by F. D. Macdow-
all of the botany department.
He will work on the development'
of chlorophyll, and attempt to
trace the paths of the elements
employed in photosynthesis with
the use of radioactive isotopes.
Mineral absorbtion by plants will
be investigated by Prof. F. G. Gus-
tafson, of the botany department,

yesterday but for all practical
purposes the six-day old wild-
cat walkout continued.

Here in Ann Arbor, Robert R.j
Brown, district manager for the

occurs as planned, "it definitely
will not affect Ann Arbor."

IN DETROIT, the State Labor
Mediation Board has called a
meeting between company and
union for 2 p.m. tomorrow in an
effort to avert the walkout.
The strike was ordered yes-
terday by Martin J. O'Dell, pres-
ident of the local, who claimed
that the negotiations had broken
down when the company refused
to arbitrate with the union
demands for a four and one-
half per cent wage boost.
H. B. Tyree, Edison spokesman,
said that the company has of-
fered a four per cent wage hike
and has offered to arbitrate. He
estimated the difference between
the company offer and the UWA
demand at about one cent an
* * *
THE DISPUTE grew out of an
agreement between the company
and the union made July 14, 1949
under which the company agreed
to pay a wage increase equal to
the average of the pension fund
contributions granted the UAW
(CIO) by the Ford Motor Co. and
the Chrysler Corp.
O'Dell charged that the com-
pany has failed to live up to the
formula agreed upon at that time.
He clained'that union actuaries
had determined the wage boost to
be four and one-half per cent.
"We are perfectly willing to sub-
mit the formula to arbitration and
let actuaries figure out what we
should pay," Tyree said.
