PRICE FIVE CENTS

Senate Passes
Altered Bill On
Wages, Hours
Retains Broader Outlines
Of Original Proposal;
Rider Defeated
Measure Contains
No Wage Reglaiion
WASHINGTON, July 31.-(G)-The
wage-hour bill passed by the Senate
today differed at several points from
the form in which originally intro-
duced, but retained the broad outlines
of the original proposal.
The bill originally would have giv-
en an Administrative board power to
vary upward or downward wage and
hour standards set by the bill for in-
dustries in interstate commerce.
It also would have permitted fixing
of "fair minimum" wages and a "fair
maximum work week" higher than
the "non-oppressive" level in indus-
tries where the board found collective
bargaining to be "inadequate."
Limit Not Fixed
Wages could have been as high as
80 cents an hour or $1,200 a year. The
limit for a"fair" maximum work week
never was fixed in the bill.
As it passed the Senate, the bill
contained no power for the board to
fix a "fair" wage-hour standard. It
also put a top of 40 cents an hour on
the "non-oppressive" wage which the
board could establish and a floor of
40 hours on the work week it could
impose.
The original bill dealt with child
labor by simply prohibiting trans-
portation of child labor goods in in-
terstate commerce.
Substitute Child Labor Bill
The senate substituted the Wheel-
er-Johnson child labor bill which
would combine the flat prohibition
with a provision restraining employ-
ers of child labor from shipping goods
into a state in violation of that state'sc
laws.t
In the bill as introduced "oppres-f
sive" labor practices such as labor
espionage and strikebreaking were
prohibited.
These sections were deleted by thec
Senate Labor Committee.
After passing the wage-hour bill,
the Senate voted to begin debate on
the Wagner Housing Bill when it con-c
venes Monday at noon.
One of the closest votes during the
day came on a move to attach thec
Wagner-Van Nuys Anti-Lynchinge
bill as a rider. It was defeated 46-39.t

Chesapeake Disaster
Brings Senate Action
WASHINGTON, July 31.-(P)-
Two bills to help make the sea more
safe for travelers were approved today
by the Senate Commerce Committee,
spurred by the burning of a Chesa-
peake Bay steamer.
One of the bills would require the
filing of complete passenger lists. The
other would tighten construction re-
quirements to make ships less liable to
sink in minor collisions and make
them more nearly fireproof.
It also would specify how cargoes,.
such as grain, should be stored so that
it would be less likely to shift, in-
crease the fire drill requirements
and make inspections more rigid.
The passenger list measure would
require that a complete list of the
passengers carried be deposited
ashore.
Some of the requirements were
worked out as a result of the exten-
sive investigations made after the
Morro Castle and other ship disasters
of recent years.
Franco Denies
Four Revolts
Of Insurgents
Loyalists Claim Outbreaks
Occurred In Four Points;
Insurgents Deny Reports
HENDAYE, Franco-Spanish Bor-
der, July 31.--UP)-The Spanish Gov-
ernment asserted today revolts had
broken out at four points in Insur-
gent-held territory.
The reports brought emphatic de-
nials from the headquarters of Gen-
eralissimo Francisco Franco. The
Insurgents said the Government was
trying to distract attention from its
military setbacks.
Government communiques declared
outbreaks occurred at the old south-
ern city of Granada, on the Santan-
der' front in the -north and at the
southern coastal cities of Malaga and
Motril.
Said the Insurgents:
Two thousand government soldiers
surrendered near Espiel, in southern
Cordoba province, while Franco's
troops in Eastern Spain crossed the
border of Cuenca province in their
march southward toward the Madrid-
Valencia highway, the link between
the old and new seats of government.
Government Accounts
Government sources gave these ac-
coun'ts of the reported revolts:
Spanish Insurgent soldiers in Gra-
nada rebelled when they were told
to move out of their barracks to make
place for Italians fighting for Franco
and when Italian officers were placed
in high positions. Bombs were loosed
within the city to crush the uprising.
Government troops on the San-
tander front heard machine gun fire
at Insurgent-held Aguilar De Campo
and saw reinforcements rush into
the town while 15 Insurgent planes
flew overhead. The revolting troops
were said to have used hand-grenades
against the soldiers sent to repress
the movement.
Insurgent General Gonzalo Queipo
De Llano, one of Franco's chief aides,
flatly denied the reports of the Gra-
nada revolt. He hinted in a radio
broadcast that a new Insurgent of-
fensive toward Madrid was in the of-
fing.
There had been no major moves
west of Madrid since the Insurgents
repelled a Government offensive last
week, recaptured the town of Brunete
and pushed toward Villanueva De La
Canada, about 15 miles west of the
city.

Cup Defender, Sailed Byj
Vanderbilt, Leads The
Way In 30 Mile Course 1
NEWPORT R.I., July 31.-( P)-It
was Ranger by the proverbial mile to-
day, and just about double that dis-
tance by nautical measurement as the
first race for the America's Cup un-
expectedly assumed all the propor-1
tions of a seagoing rout for ThomasI
O. M. Sopwith's Endeavour 2nd, 16th
challenger for the classic emblem of
international yachting supremacy.
The snub-nosed white-hulled de-
fender, sailed with characteristic and{
consummate skill by Harold Stirling
(Mike) Vanderbilt, led all the way
in light streaky breezes over a 30 mile1
ocean course, 15 miles to windward
and return. She came home in soli-
tary splendor, her huge spinnaker
billowing against a foggy background]
and her rival so far astern she was
scarcely discernible in the rapidly set-
tling mists of as dismal a finish as the
big yacht races have ever witnessed.
Victor by the overwhelming mar-
gin of 17 minutes, 5 seconds, Ranger
and Vanderbilt established their com-
bined supremacy, for the time being,
by handing the challenger the worst
shellacking in the past half century
of America's cup history.

More than 200 tickets have been
sold for the University of Michigan
Cabaret Dinner which will be held
from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m., tomorrow in
the ballroom of the League, accord-
ing to Louise Paine, chairman of the
ticket committee.
The program of entertainment
planned for the evening will include
a fashion show, specialty dancing and
musical novelties. The fashion parade
will feature old and new styles which
will be modeled by students.
Among the outfits that will' be
shown are an old fashioned tennis
dress worn by Janet Allington which
will be contrasted with modern out-
fits modeled by Hope Hartwig and
Bernard Shields. Phyllis Miner and
John Smillie will display the correct
formal dress of several decades ago{
while Marie Sawyer and Douglas!
Gregory will appear in the evening
wear of 1937.
Other models will be Adelaide Ma-
son, Jack Crofts, Barbara Nelson,
Betsy Anderson, William Sullivan,

fourth Shamrock lost the fifth and
final race to Resolute by a margin of
19 minutes, 45 seconds on corrected
time, but the actual elapsed time be-
tween the boats at the finish was only
a little over 13 minutes.
Not since the defender, Volunteer,
whipped the Scottish challenger,
Thistle, by 19 minutes, 23.75 seconds,
in the first race of the 1887 series has
any contender for the cup been so
badly beatendas was Sopwith's sloop
today, in a race where both boats
crossed the finish line.
Under conditions and circum-
stances as gloomy at the finish for the
challenger as they were unexciting to
one of the biggest seagoing galleries
since the cup races were shifted in;
1930 to Newport, Ranger negotiated
the course in four hours, 41 minutes,
15 seconds.
The challenger, approximately two
miles behind after a final and futile
hunt for more wind, was timed in
4:58:20.
Candidates For
Master Degree

Fighting Covers 100
Miles In West, South
TIENTSIN, July 31.-WP--The Jap-
anese army announced today its air-
force had carried battle against the
Chinese further southward with the
oombing of troop concentrations at
Paotingfu, 85 miles southwest of Pei-
ping.
Headquarters here declared the
bombardment yesterday was neces-
sary because units of the central gov-
ernment's army, hitherto not in-
volved,, had moved into Paotingfu
and joined remnants of the 29th
army, driven by the Japanese from
the Peiping district.
The bombing of Paotingfu carried
the zone of hostilities well beyond'the
Peiping-Tientsin area, over which the
Japanese claimed to have established
almost complete military domina-
tion, with only minor mopping up
operations continuing.
Their aircraft and infantry, how-
ever, continued ruthless action against
Chinese bands from Tientsin to well
West and south of Peiping, over a
twisted line of more than 100 miles.
Hundreds more Chinese were killed.
Japanese army spokesmen said
their troops controlled all of Hopeh
province north of a line from Tangku
on the seacoast, running through
Tientsin and thence generally follow-
ing the railway west-northwest to be-
yond Peiping.
Japanese units were reported in
control of part of the Peiping-Sui-
yuan Railway, outlet for Mongolia
and China's northwest. Previously
Japanese had been said to be ad-
vancing through great wall passes
from Manchoukuo in that direction;
The conquests of the last few days
have placed the Japanese army
astride of China's two main north-
;outh railways and in control of a sec-
tion of the Peiping-Suiyuan link with
the northwest.

To Lead Forum
Tonight At 7:30
In an attempt to get at some of the
questions about religion, God, and

Civil Service Best State Government
Change In 25 Years, Pollock Declares

By CLINTON B. CONGER
Prof. James K. Pollock of the po-
litical science department, author of
the new Michigan Civil Service bill
which was the only product of the
Legislature's short-lived special ses-
sion, yesterday expressed himself as
"very happy" over the final passage of
his bill in spite of changes injected
by the legislators which, some have
charged, will tend to "freeze" Demo-
crats now holding positions in their
places.
Profesor Pollock, who yesterday
morning issued a brief statement con-
cerning the bill's passage said he
would prepare during the week-end a
detailed analysis of the new bill in the
form in which it passed through the
special session.

Michigan state government in a quar-
ter of a century, and no amount of'
wailing over what might have been
done should cover up this fact."
The principal changes made in the
gill while it was in the hands of
house and senate were the substitu-
tion of a three-man commission to
direct Civil Service, and the stipula-
tion that persent employes, in the first
six months after the bill takes effect
Jan. 1, 1938, shall take not compe-
titive but qualifying examinations to
retain their positions, with their de-
partment heads having the right of,
"consultation" in regard to the ques-
tions on the examination.I
Professor Pollock's complete state-
ment said:
"I am naturally very happy that
the Civil Service bill has finally been

indefatigably for its adoption, and the
newspapers of the state without
vhose continuous and enlightened
support the program could not have
been successful. The eyes of the
whole country have been on Michigan
in connection with Civil Service and
I am glad to say that we have kept
the faith and added to our reputation.
"I would not be truthful if I said
that the bill which has been enacted
is as good as the bill originally pro-
posed. But I suppose we must ex-
pect that the enemies of good gov-
ernment will bury their teeth in good
proposals and try to destroy them. In
this case, opponents have succeeded
in deleting some of the more progres-
sive and forward-looking provisions
which were recommended in the or-
