Accept Change
For Auto Code
Open Shop Provision Is
Included In Agreement
With Administration
WASHINGTON, Aug. 17.-(N)-An
agreement between the automobile
industry and the NRA upon the
"open shop" provision of the indus-
try's code was reached today with
spokesmen for the manufacturers ac-
cepting a modification proposed by
Robert W. Lea, deputy administrator.
The change, which officials indi-
cated represented the views of Hugh
S. Johnson, the administrator, was
the first modification of the "collec-
tive bargaining" labor clause of the
industrial act which has been written
in, in co-operation with the NRA.
The law as written provided for
the organization and collective bar-
gaining of employes with no restraint
upon the type of representation they
might select.
Modifying Provision
The additional modifying provision
which was written in today after a
conference between Lea andarepre-
sentatives of the industry follows:
"Under the foregoing provisions,
the employers in the industrymay
continue the open shop policy under
which the selection, retention, and
advancement of employes will be on
the basis of individual merit without
regard to their affiliation or non-
affiliation with any labor or other or-
T e original code presented by the
National Automobile Chamber of
Commerce, with Henry Ford not yet
indicating adherence, read:.
"In accordance with the foregoing
provisions, the employers in the
automobile industry propose to con-.
tinue the open shop policy heretofore
followed and under which unusually
satisfactory and harmonious relations
with employes have been maintained.
The selection, retention and advance-
ment of employes will be on the basis
of individual 'merit without regard to
their affiliation or non-affiliation
with any labor or other organiza-
Greene's Views Unknown

In U. S. Congress
LANSING, Aug. 17.-(IP)-The pos-
sibiility that former Gov. Fred W.
Green w\ ill enter the race for the
Republican nomination for United
States senator against Arthur H.
Vandenberg next y e a r appeared
stronger today following a political
festival at Ionia.
A hundred or more Republican
and Democratic leaders gathered
there Wednesday for Governor's day
at the Free Fair. A number of the
Republicans had some little meetings
of their own. The major topics of
conversation were whether Green will
cpposer Vandenberg and the probable
candidates for governor on the Re-
publican ticket.
Net results of the day's celebration
Gov. William A. Comstock rendered
a "accounting" of his administration
and gave a holiday crowd a preview
of what he intends to do in a special
session of the legislature this fall or
early next year.
Friends of Green, who acted as
master of ceremonies at the fair,
renewed their boom for him as a
candidate for the senate. While they
received no final assurance that
Green will run, they did not get a
flat refusal, and seemed to be satis-
The boom for Frank D. Fitzgerald,
secretary of state, for the Republican
nomination for governor next year,
was given another solid push or two,
and friends of Fitzgerald likewise,
appeared certain he will run.
The Democrats at the fair did little
speculating. They seemed to be sat-
isfied with their present slate and
evidently plan to devote their effort
to holding the line without changing
personnel materially. .

MacDonald Due
At Conferen c e
On Iraq Strife
LONDON, Aug. 17.-()-Prime
Minister Ramsay MacDonald was due
to confer today with department
heads on various matters, among
them, according to reports, welfare
in northern Iraq.
The premier interrupted his vaca-
tion at -Lossiemouth to get in per-
sonal touch with the various depart-
ments. Since the foreign office was
known to be considering the savage,
war between the Iraq army and the
Assyrian Christians, it was presumed
the problem would be included in
MacDonald's comprehensive program.
The Daily Herald today reported
that more than 300 Assyrian Chris-
tians had been massacred in a village
in northern Iraq within two miles of
an Iraq army camp;:
The commander of Iraq troops,
who was said to. have used Kurds
to attack the Assyrians as they were
returning from French Syria after
recent border outbreaks, was blamed
for the killings.
Early this month more than 100
persons were reported killed after
the Assyrians crossed into Syria from
the territory in Iraq. They were said
to have been dissatisfied with ar-
rangements made when the -British
mandate over Iraq was ended.

Lincoln Letter Is
Stolen From Fair:
CHICAGO, Aug. 17.-(P)-A 13-
word letter President Lincoln wrote
to the secretary of the navy was the,
object of a police search today after
Albert Bahliquist, manager of the
wigwam exhibit of the Lincoln group
at the World's Fair, reported it stolen
from a display case.
The missive was dated Feb. 25,
1865, and said: "Will the secretary
of the navy please see and hear this
connecticut gentleman?"
An air of mystery was attached
to the reported theft as Bahlquist
said the case did not appear to have
been forced open.

URBANA, Ill., Aug. 17--()-When
the University of Illinois football
players soon get out t& continue the
climb up the Big Ten ladder they
were making as the season closed last
year, they will have a capable leader
in Capt. Herman Walser.
Walser, who has played fullback
for two years, won his way to the
captaincy not by the spectacular per-
formances which send the crowds in-
to thrills but by all-around perform-
ances and steady plugging away at
interference, blocking, and making it
possible for teammates to race to
He entered Illinois from Elgin High
School where he had made' a repu-
tation as a player and won his nu-
merals as a freshman in 1930. He
achieved his varsity letter in 1931
and again last season.
Walser does everything assigned to
him in good style, but his particular,
forte is defensive playing and there
is no one on, whom Coach Bob Zupp-
ke will, depend more to back up a
wavering line than this rather quiet,
black-haired lad of 170 pounds.
In the nip and tuck struggle at
Madison last year when Badgers and
Illini played one of the closest and
most thrilling games of the cam-
paign, Walser's defensive perform-
ance earned the praise of Zuppke,
wha said it was equal to the best
he had ever seen.
Walser will probably do much of-
the punting for the Illini this season
as he kicks consistently, well.
