Windt Is Gratified By Campus
Reaction To Repertory Group

"The enthusiastic support that the
Michigan Repertory Players have re-
ceived in the first four days of per-
formance this season is very gratify-
ing to the organization," said Valen-
tine B. Windt, director of the Play-
ers in an interview yesterday. "The
sale of season subscriptions is the
largest in the history of the group,
and sales will continue throughout
the week for the season tickets."
"The Players were a new idea in
local dramatics when they presented
themselves for the first time five
years ago, Windt said. "When Prof.
Chester M. Wallace, of the Carnegie
Institute of Technology, and myself
opened the first summer season, the
thought of producing a new play
each week during the summer with a
student cast seemed tremendous, and
many of our friends urged us not to
attempt it. But by the kind help of

Dean Kraus and the students of the
1929 Summer Session we were able to
put the first season across. Since
then, each season has been increas-
ingly easier and more worthwhile ar-
"The greatest repertory theatres of
ehe world, the Moscow Art Theatre,
and the Abbey Theatre Players, have
played and studied together season
after season. This fact has given
them a fine-knit qualityhin their
work which makes the play the im-
portant thing and which keeps the
actor in his proper contributory
"So the response given by the cam-
pus and town in the purchase of
subscriptions means a great deal to
us, for it shows that our work is ap-
proved, and that we will have the
financial support to push our ideals
even further," he concluded.

Proposal Originally Was
Made By Cotton Textile
Workers Of Nation
WASHINGTON, June 27. -W) -
From labor and minority groups
sudden opposition sprung today as
the nation's textile operators form-
ally placed before the national re-
covery administration their proposal
to stabilize industry by establishing
minimum wages and maximum
working hours.
Hardly had the broad outline of
their agreement been sketched when
William Green, president of the
American Federation of Labor, ob-
jected to the aid and labor provi-
sions of the code and Federal manu-
facturers came forward with requests
that their plans be exempted.,
Presented by more than two-thirds
of the domestic spindle and loom
operators, the proposed code of fair,
competition must be approved by the
Roosevelt administration before it
takes the effect of law binding min-
orities to abide by it.
Hugh S. Johnson, administrator of
the recovery legislation, presided over
the hearing at the start, telling the,
thousand or more persons crowded,
into the Commerce Department Au-
ditorium that, "you are about to be3
witnesses of what may prove one of
the most momentous meetings of
this kind that has ever been held
"We have presented here from a
great industry, with practical unan-
timitI"fe saiT "a 'uggestion of a
method whereby management in
that industry, and labor in that in-1
dustry, have joined hands in co-op-i
erating to pull this country out of'
the difficulties in which we have been
for the last three years."
But representatives of the mills-
George A. Sloan, president of the;
cotton textile institute, Robert Amory
of Boston, speaking for the northern
plants, and William D. Anderson of
Macon, Ga., spokesman for the south
--had not concluded their statement,
before opposition was voiced.
Appearing unexpectedly with a re-
quest that he be heard, Senator
James F. Byrnes, South Carolina,
made an appeal for curbing the
stretch-out systeem of increasing the
machine load of employees.
A few minutes later, Green told
newspaper men he was opposed to
the prime provisions of the code-
the wages and maximum hours pro-
vided in it. The code proposed a 40-
hour week generally for the indus-
tries, with an $11 a week minimum
scale in the north for unskilled inside
workers and $10 in the south.
Consider Ways
to Handle New
Mill Tax Slash


(By The Associated Press)
Advocates of repeal on opposite
sides of the continen took com-
manding leads last night in Cali-
fornia and West Virginia.
Early returns trickled in from the
Golden Bear state giving anti-pro-
hibitionists an almost three-to-one
advantage. Tellers in West Virginia
had counted up a vote of 123,098 for
repeal and 70,130 against with about
half of the state reported.
In West Virginia, listed as dry for
two decades, those favoring the rati-
fication of the Twenty-First Amend-
ment at first enjoyed a better than
two-to-one lead, but later returns
from the rural districts tended to
cut down this percentage.
The first returns from California
came principally from the Los An-
geles district and when totaled with
scattered votes from other sections
gave 122,464 for repeal and 43,731
for retention of, the prohibition

ing a general exodus of students

perature registered was 72.1 de-
grees at 10 p. m., it having dropped
to this level after 7 p. m. when 91

Reviews 300,000 Cases
WASHINGTON, June 27.-(/P)-As
a stride toward easing economy
law cuts into benefits to former sol-
diers, the veteran administration to-
day' announced it was reviewing up-
ward of 300,000 individual cases

known in a six-page bulletin
crammed with information on al-
tered compensation, pensions and
other payments to ex-service men
under the compromise law enacted
by Congress in the closing minutes
of the special session.
Officials estimated $96,000,000 had
been cut off economy law savings by
the combined effect of President

6, and the compromise law, crediting
the former with $50,000,000.1
