Tw IoTon Rain
MIDLAND, Mich. - Al)-
"Heavyrain" was the answer
given Municipal Judge James
E. Ryan when he asked why a
truck owned by a Midland firm
was 3,800 pounds overweight.
The truck was stopped by
Highway Department inspec-
tors for a weight check. Com-
pany representatives claimed
the gravel had correct weight
the night before but was soak-
ed by rain while parked over-
night.
"The court questions the pos-
sibility that nearly two tons
of rain fell in the truck," said
the judge.
The company was fined $228
plus $4.30 costs.

Strike Leaders Say They Will Abide
By 80-Day Injunction, If Issued
NEW YORK - (P) - "The strike is on" longshore union officials
declared early today, heralding the start of walkout designed to tie up
East Coast shipping.
The terse announcement came from Patrick J. Connolly, execu-
tive vice president of the International Longshoremen's Association at
12:01 a.m.
There was no immediate report of strike activity on docks of the
world's largest port, largely closed down at night anyway.

Coast ports from Portland, Maine
to Hampton Roads, Va.
Full effect of the strike, which
could eventually thrgw 800,000
persons out of work in New York
alone, was not expected to make
itself felt for several days.
Shippers worked feverishly dur-
ing the past few days to get their
cargoes 'loaded and out of the port
by the midnight deadline. Incom-
ing ships were ordered to wait
outside the harbor until their own-
ers determined whether they could
be diverted to other ports.

Scotia-outside the strike area-

said their men would probably
handle cargoes, as required by
their contract:

4-ppointment
By JANET FORD
The announcenient yesterday of
Governor Earl Warren's appoint-
ment as chief justice of the Unit-
ed States was greeted enthusiasti-
cally by several University pro-
fessors.
"A very good appointment,"
Prof. Joseph Kallenbach of the
political science department com-
mented last night.
HE FELT Warren's experience
in law and his varied political
background, including a term as
attorney general for the state of
California, would prove valuable'
even though Warren has never
been a judge.
Prof. Paul Kauper of the law
school, expressed the opinion
that Warren has "great integ-
rity" and was capable of handl-
ing the administrative phase of
the Chief Justice post.
Prof. George Peek of the po-
litical science department agreed
that Warren would make a good
chief justice and said that he was
"very pleased" at the appoint-
ment.
