MINNEAPOLIS, Aug. 11- (P) -
The Federal Court today upheld the
legality of Gov. Floyd B. Olson's mili-
tary rule in the truck drivers' strike
in refusing 10 protesting employers'
an injunction against continuance
of the decree.
The decision, handed down by
Judges Gunnar H. Nordbye, Joseph
W. Molyneaux and John B. San-
born, was unanimous.
Employers, attacking the legality
of the Governor's martial rule edict
and the administration of it by the
military, had demanded first a tem-
porary restraining order, then a per-
manent injunction. The application
for the court writ was filed early
this week.
The decision upheld the Governor's
authority to take over the city under
military rule and administer the
City's affairs as he saw fit.
"We must recognize that he has
wide discretion in determining the
means to be used in the restroation
of law and order," said the pro-
"We are of the opinion that there1
is substantial foundation for the
plaintiffs' belief the Governor is us-1
ing his powers of coercing them intoj
an acceptance of the Haas-Dun-;
nigan proposal," the opinion said in

Butler Appeals To
English People To
Fight Dictatorship
LONDON, Aug. 11.-(OP)-In a
bitter diatribe against Fascism and
Communism delivered at a Pilgrims
banquet, Dr. Nicholas Murray Butler,
president of Columbia University,
urged the English-speaking peoples
of the worldsto unite in a fight against
governments which rule by compul-
Dr. Butler asserted that govern-
ments the world over should be sub-
jected to public opinion and not public
opinion subjected to the governments.
"The English-speaking peoples have
never had so great a responsibility
resting upon them as at this moment,"
he continued. "Those principles of
social order and of government which
they had supposed were slowly con-
quering the world and would ever1%
tually conquer the world are now al-
most everywhere held in check.
In such a situation it is impera-
tive that the English-speaking world
should exert to the utmost its capa-
city for self-understanding, self-con-
trol and self-improvement. It should
demonstrate by action that liberty as.
civilization's cornerstone is not really
weakened or destroyed but must be
strengthened from year to year and
from generation to generation in
order to bear its great burden."

Monetary Ratio Still Far
From One-to-Three Or-
der Of Last Congress
WASHINGTON, Aug. 11. - (A) -
A decision to issue currency to the
full extent permitted by the law
against certain silver in the Treasury
prompted speculation today whether
a similar policy would be applied to
future purchases-which might pump
more than a billion dollars of new
money into circulation.
The Treasury's surprise announce-
ment last night, a sharp change of
policy, applied to a comparatively in-
significant amount of silver held in
the Treasury when the new silver
purchase law was enacted. Its im-
portance was'in pointing to the pos-
sible future course on the huge silver
purchases authorized by that law.
Observers raised their eyebrows at
three words in the Treasury an-
nouncenient, saying that "for the
present" the more expansive policy
would not be followed on the silver
purchases that recently included na-
tionalization of the nation's bullion
Money In Circulation Drops
Disclosures of the Treasury's sil-
ver plan coincided with the release of
figures by the Comptroller of the Cur-
rency showing that the money in cir-
culation per capita had dropped from
$42.46 to $41.99 during the month of
July. These compare with a per capita
circulation of $44.76 on July 31, 1933
and of $53.21 on Oct. 31, 1920.
Total circulation of silver certifi-
cates amounted to $494,732,801, of
which $95,752,515 was held by the
Federal Reserve banks.
The total amount of money in cir-
culation July 31 was $5,317,455,610
as compared with $5,373,469,752 on
June 30.
The relatively minor circulation po-
sition of silver was shown by a per
capita figure of $3.15 as compared
to $24.05 of Federal Reserve notes
and of $6.99 of National Bank notes.
Officials have indicated privately
more than once that they did not ex-
pect the issuance of new silver cur-
rency to result in much of a circu-
lation increase, as it was believed the
currency would in many cases merely
supplant outstanding Federal ReserveI
New Certificates Get Preference t
They have left no doubt, however,
that they would exert every effort toI
put the new currency into circulation1
as an answer to the demands of silverI
proponents and inflationists who have
repeatedly asserted that the country
needs "more money."
To this end, payment of the newly
printed certificates is being made at
the Treasurer's office in prefeernce
to other forms of money, and Federal
Reserve banks have been requested
also to put the new certificates out
ahead of other currency when such
certificates are received from the

The two remaining performances;
of the Michigan Repertory Players
sixth summer season will be given on
Tuesdaykand Wednesday nightsof
rthis week, when they present "The
Cradle Song," by G. Martinez-Sierra
'in the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
"The Cradle Song" has been trans-
lated into many languages, and has
been played and imitated widely
throughout the civilized world. It had
its Madrid premiere in 1911; ten
years after, Augustin Duncan pro-
duced four special matinees in Eng-
lish at the Times Square theatre,
New York, beginning in February
1921. A play in two acts was thought
to be revolutionary by the concensus
of experts.
The publication of the play in
translation attracted wide attention
and many performances of the play
On November 2, 1926, "The Cradle
Song" reappeared at the FortuneI
Theatre, London, with Miss Gillian
Scaife, to be later transferred to the
Little Theatre, where it completed a1
run of 109 performances, while Miss1
Eva LeGallienne brought her sin-
gularly fine and sensitive interpreta-
tion to the Civic Repertory Theater,
New York, during the following Jan-
uary, where it has been repeated 125
A special company headed by Miss
Mary Shaw later traveled throughout
the United States. Productions at
the playhouses of Oxford and Liver-

More than 900 University stud-
ents, at least half of them new ones
who were not in attendance in Jan-
uary of this year, will be aided
through the Federal Emergency Re-
lief Administration during the coming
academic year, it was announced
yesterday by Prof. Lewis M. Gram,
director of plant extension and F. E.
R. A. administrator for the Univer-
Only 752 students were on the pay-
rolls of the F. E. R. A. during the
past year but under the increased
allottment made possible by national
administrators, 12 per cent of the
University of Michigan student body
-based upon the enrollment as of
Oct. 15, 1933-will be aided during
the coming year. When the plan
first went into effect no more than
10 perbcent of the same number
could be given jobs.
In explaining the general F. E. R.
A. program for next year, Professor
Gram stated that the same proced-
ure as that governing last year's plan
would be followed. The same stand-
ard rate of pay for all work-forty
cents an hour-will be in effect and
maximum limitations will be ap-
plied on the amount of work to be
given any single individual.

PITTSBURGH, Aug. 11 - OP) - A
strike, sanctioned by the American
Federation of Labor, today shut down
the major plants of the Aluminum
Co. of America in three states.
Reports from the strike centersE
indicate that about 12,000 of the
company's estimated 15,000 workers
had quit their tasks. Peaceful
picketing was under way at the
company's huge plants in the Putts-
burgh district, and at factories in
Alcoa, Tenn., and Massena, N. Y.
Meanwhile, both sides expressed
willingness to conciliate to end the
walkout, which became effective at
midnight after weeks of fruitless
efforts between leaders of the Alum-
inum Workers Council and the com-
pany officials to reach an agree-
ment on union demands.
Roy A. Hunt, president of the
Aluminum Co. of America, declared
that the strike "will not change the
company's attitude toward a closed
shop or the other demands."

The State of Michigan made a net
profit of more than $34,000,000 from
its sales tax collections in the fiscal
year ending July 31, it is revealed by
figures released by James E. Mogan,
managing director of the state board
of tax administration.
The total collections of the tax for
the year amounted to $34,871,949.01,
Administration and organization ex-
penses in connection with the tax'
were $414,326.99. Subtracting this
amount from the total receipts, it is
seen that the net income to the State
was $34,457,622.02.
The percentage of the administra-
tion and organization costs to the col-
lections was 1.187 per cent.
Due to the large amount of work
necessary to a complete breakdown
of the year's collections by class,
kind, and type of industry, the an-
nual report containing this informa-
tion will not be prepared for six weeks,
Mr. Mogan reports.
The total administrative expense
of the tax amounted to $343,024.39,
and the organization expense totaled
$70,302.60. Personnel expenses for the
Lansing sales. tax office were $223,-
740 and the Detroit office paid $87,860
to its employees. The expenses are
included under the general heading of
administrative expense.

A typically furious Tiger rally in
