*Guild Wants
Unions Pact
Agreement Could
S Delay Publication
Newspaper Guild of Detroit today
called for an agreement with other
* unions affected by Detroit's 9-day-
old newspaper strike under which
no union employes would go back
to work until all union contracts
are settled.
Guild leaders conceded that
such a pact could delay a resump-
tion of publication of Detroit's
three regular daily newspapers for
some time. The development came
after federal and state mediators
had .reported "great progress" to-
ward a settlement of a stereotyp-
ers' strike that shut down the
The guild, at a general mem-
bership meeting, also voted to seek
agreement from the other unions
that any return to work be con-
ditional on full back pay for all
union employees laid off since the
strike began Dec. 1.
Guild Represents Many
The guild represents 800 edi-
torial, business and circulation
employes at the Detroit Times and
Detroit Free Press and mainten-
ance workers at the Detroit News.
Detroit News editorial aid busi-
ness office employes are not or-
ganized. They are working dur-
ing the strike.
The 116 stereotypers walked out
at all three newspaper plants
Members of other newspaper craft
unions refused to cross the stereo-
typers' picket lines. So did some
guild members at the start of the
Contracts of all six newspaper
craft unions involved have expired.
So has a contract covering AFL-
CIO Teamsters Union members

trucks. The guild's contract with
The Free Press has expired.
Guild Confers
Guild leaders said they already
have been in conference with heads
of the other unions about back-
to-work conditions. A guild of-
ficial called it a "blood pact' in
describing the union's proposal.
The stereotypers' new contract
demands have included provision
of extra help or overtime pay in
handling copy for advance issues
of the newspapers and for hand-
ling color plates.
The stereotypers' straight time
day pay is $3.08 an hour.
Another guild action today pro-
vided union defense fund benefits
to "needy" members and their
families. The payments, starting
Monday, call for $10 for each per-
son in the member's family, up to
a maximum of $55 a week, or 90
per cent of a member's weekly
salary, whichever is less.
GM Leader
Resists Senate
eral Motors Corp. yesterday re-
sisted suggestions by Senate in-
vestigators that it has grown so
big and powerful it might need
The suggestions were posed in
question form as the Senate Anti-
monopoly subconittee wound up
the present phase of its investi-

gation of GM, the world's largest
industrial corporation.
The questions were fired by
Chairman John C., O'Mahoney
(D-Wyo.) and James W. Burns,
his chief counsel, at GM's presi-
dent, Harlow H. Curtice.
Size Necessary?
"Why," Burns demanded, "is it
necessary for General Motors to bex
as large as it is?"
"It is necessary," Curtice re-
plied. He said GM "has grown
from within" by pioneering in<
some fields, by making technicall
contributions in others, and be-
cause it has been efficient.E
"Does'it have to be large to be<
efficient?" he paraphrased one oft
Burns' questions. "I don't thinkt
size has anything to do with it."
Sen. O'Mahoney ordered a group
of Chicago automobile dealers andx
others subpoenaed to clear up con-t
flicts in testimony in his investi-2
gation. He acted at the requestt
of GM officials.9

Five Players Share Scoring Honors
Special To The Daily
GRAND FORKS, N.D.-An important 5-1 win here over North
Dakota sent Michigan's hocey team off to a flying start last night in
the Western Intercollegiate Hockey League scramble.
With only one game under their belts before last night, the
Wolverines outclassed completely a previously unbeaten North Dakota
squad. The two teams will meet here again tonight for the last time
this season in the second meeting of the two-point-per-game series.
There was little doubt that the Maize and Blue were vastly im-

The defense, however, was

Prevent Veto
- Efimenco
Possibility of Nationalist China
abstaining from voting on an 18
n a t i o n package proposal for
United Nations' membership was
seen as "good" yesterday by Prof.
N. Marbury Efimenco of the polit-
ical science department.
"If the United States puts
proper pressure on Nationalist
China, the Chinese delegate Dr.
T. F. Tsiang will abstain again
next week," he explained.
In an attempt to break a long-
existing membership deadlock, the
General Assembly Thursday over-
whelmingly approved simultaneous
admission of 18 new countries, five
of which are Comunist block na-
tions. But Nationalist China has
threatened to veto the package
deal in the Security Council.
Objects to Outer Mongolia
China objects strongly to ad-
mission of Outer Mongolia, one of
the five Communist states, Prof.
Henry L. Bretton of the political
science dpartment presented two
possible reasons for China's stand:
"Admission of Outer Mongolia
might in a sense admit the legit-
imacy of Red China," he said.
"Nationalist China wants to hold
on to the fiction that the Con-
nunists have no jurisdiction over
China and that Mongolia was
conquered by Russia."
Second reason for Nationalist
China's stand on the admission of
Outer Mongolia is that they "do
not wish to give Red China the
prestige" that such action .might
bring he said.
Problem of Ultimatum
"Basically, the question involved
is whether the United States can
issue an ultimatum to make Na-
tionalist China abstain," Prof.
Efimenco said. "It has been
rumored that if China vetoes the7
deal, the next session of the Gen-
eral Assembly will give that coun-
try's seat to Red China."
Prof. Bretton agreed that the
United States is in a position to
bring pressure to bear on Nation-
alist China, but he does not be-
lieve that possible seating of Red
China will be used as a political
He believes that Nationalist
China could be voted out of cer-
tain committees and positions of
prestige in the UN, rather than bek
expelled from the organization
'Dificult To Predict'
Under the circumstances, Prof.t
Bretton finds it difficult to pre-t
dict what Nationalist China will
Commenting on the Unitede

States' stand on the issue, he said,t
"we should not have any difficulty
in voting for admission of Outer
Mongolia because we will merelyc
be following a precedent."f

This would advance the date of

Leonard W. Hall has held there
was no need for the President to

Knowland Refuses Information
Sen. Knowland refused to tell
a news conference whether he

dential nomination until President
Eisenhower "has the opportunity
to make a decision which I believe

He recalled, he had said after
his meeting with the President
that the Eisenhower decision
should be made clear "in mid-
January" before the end of filings
for state primaries.
In referring to his talk with the
President, Sen. Knowland said:
"I wouldn't want to mislead you
by saying that the question of
1956 didn't enter the discussion."

Yesterday's Student-Faculty-Administration conference at the

commented in closing the meeting.
General theme .of the conference was problems of the University

discussion groups and later reconvened for a general session.
Development of North Campus was a theme stressed in the
discussion on physical facilities. Assistant Dean of Men Peter A.

'Interchangeability" of Russia
Is Common American Myth
The most common and basic American myth of Russia is its
interchangeability of the terms Soviet Union and Russia, Professor Lev

Dobriansky, a member of the Georgetown University economics
department, spoke on "Several Outstanding American Myths on
"The significance of the interchangeability of this myth is one
of sheer scientific accuracy," Prof. Dobriansky stated. "There are 16
republics in the Soviet Union and
one is Russia," he asserted. "The CALENDAR CHANGE:
others are national units."

on admissions. This compares with
a 13.5 to one ratio last year.
Present Ratio Good
Administration officials said
they considered the present ratio
good, but as high as the University
should allow it to go.
A movement to standardize ad-
missions tests throughout' the
country was described.
Conferees also mentioned that
there has been no proven correla-
tion between class size and schol-
astic achievement.
"Whole Man" Emphasized
Emphasis at the discussion on
extra-curricular activities was on
the "whole man."
Prof. Shorey Peterson of the
economicshdepartment expressed
the view that many students could
afford to disperse their interests.
He added that the "whole man"
is the product of a complex of
specific institutions.
