Answering Complaint Of
Unfair Labor Practices
DETROIT, July 3.-(AP)-The Ford
Motor Company challenged tonight
the National Labor Relations Board's
authority to regulate its relations
with employes it described as "en-
gaged in local production."
Answering an NLRB complaint of
unfair labor practices on which a
hearing is set for Tuesday, the Ford
Company deniedhall its allegations
and asserted it should be dismissed.
The formal answer signed by Harry
Bennet, Ford personnel director, said
Ford employes who beat and chased
union organizers from plant gates
"were at all times acting in self de-
Tense" after theunionists had "en-
tered into an unlawful conspiracy to
trespass and to cause a riot."
More than a dozen union members
were treated fortinjuries after the
fighting which attended distribution
of handbills in their campaign to or-
ganize the 89,300 employes of the
huge Ford plant in suburban Dear-
born. The NLRB complaint charged
the company with responsibility for

request for state police protection.
The seven-page document filed
with the NLRB today by Louis J.
Colombo, Ford Company attorney, de-
clared there were "lawful reasons"
for discharge of numerous employes
the board had charged were dis-
missed because of union activity.
Sources close to the Ford Company
have indicated it was prepared to
carry to the United States Supreme
Court its opposition to regulation by
the NLRB. .Today's challenge to the
board's authority asserted that the
lischarged employes "labored only in
the manufacturing department of re-
spondent; that they took no part in
the transportation to and away from
respondent's plant; nor did they par-
ticipate in any activity which pre-
ceded or followed manufacturing;
that none of said employes was en-
gaged in interstate or foreign com-
merce within the true meaning of the
National Labor Relations Act."

Britain Takes

Disrespect By Others
Eden Gives Promise
Of Spain'sIntegrity
LONDON, July 3.-GP)--British
leaders reminded a tense Europe to-
day that Britain is rearming to com-
pel respect for her rights and inter -
ests and that violation of the terri-
torial integrity of Spain or free ac-
cess to the Mediterranean, included
in those interests, would not be tol-
Prime Minister Neville Chamber-
lain and Foreign Secretary Anthony
Eden spoke to garden party audiences
of their constituents, but their hear-
ers believed they were addressing also
the leaders of Italy and Germany.
Chamberlain, at Birmingham, de-
clared one of his chief aims is to make
Britain so strong "that nobody dare
treat her with anything but respect."
For that reason he would "complete
as rapidly as possible" Britain's $7,-
500,000,000 rearmament program. He
s'd he faced his responsibilitied
"without fear or hesitation."
Eden, at Coughton, in Warwick-
shire, gave warning that Britain is
determined "to maintain the terri-
torial integrity of Spain and keep the
Mediterranean open as a "main ar-
terial road."
He uttered an emphatic reminder
that the British government cannot
remain indifferent "where British in-
terests are concerned on the land or
sea frontiers of Spain or the trade
routes that pass by her."
That was interpreted as a refer-
ence to the danger of any power,
especially Italy, attempting to cut
the Mediterranean highway to India
and the East.
The. foreigin secretary declared that
Britain had not and would not mod-
ify her time-honored principle that
the Mediterranean is a "main arterial
road," ifot merely a British shortcut
to the Orient.
Eden declared Britain has the sup-
port of both parties in Spain in her
efforts to maintain the integrity of
that country.

New Budget Is Twice That
Approved By Governor
Murphy Friday
Board Announces 45
Staff Advancements
A total budget of more than eight
million dollars, twice the appropria-
tion granted to the University, and 45
faculty promotions were approved by
the Board of Regents at a special
meeting yesterday.
The appropriation bill, signed Fri-
day by Gov. Frank Murphy,. grants
the University $4,673,235.58, while the
budget as announced 'yesterday totals
Of the total, $2,423,199 represents
the budget of the University Hospital,
which is a self-supporting institu-
tion under the direction of the Board.
The remainder, $6,478,492.41, is the
budget of the University itself for
the school year 1937-1938.
The totals show an increase of
about $490,000 in the University bud-
get over last year's figure, and $119,-
000 for the Hospital. According to
Herbert L. Watkins, assistant secre-
tary to the University, "while there
was flat percentage increase in'sal-
aries, in a number of cases handled
individually the increases which were
made were to recompense for, insofar
as it is humanly possible, and to
b'ing back in some measure atleast,
the percentage cuts instituted during
the depression."
Both Watkins and Shirley W.
Smith, vice-president and secretary
of the University said, however, that
the budget allowed for no appreciable
increase in the numerical size of the
faculty, which President Ruthven
had earlier asked in his report to ac-
company the steadily increasing stu-
dent enrollment.
The Regents also approved 45 fac-
ulty promotions, which follow:
