Discontinuation
Of Federal Job
Service Denied
Detroit Office Of National
Reemployment Service
Has No Word So Far
DETROIT, July 10---(Special to
The Daily)-Although W. Frank Per-
sons, director of the United States
Employment Service, told reporters
sevearal days ago in Washington, D.
C. that the National Reemployment
Service in Michigan would be dis-
ontinued in the immediate future,
no word has been received so far by'
Major Howard Starret, State Re-
employment Director.
"35 To 50 Offices"-
Major Starret said the only other
information that his organizat
would be scrapped and supplanted by
a new employment service came
through press reports that the Michi-
gan Unemployment Compensation
Board would set up "35 to 50 offices
in the State within 90 days."
"I know nothing about the plans
of the new service except what has
come to my office indirectly," he said.
"No state officials have consulted
with me about Michigan unemploy-
ment problems or about experience
in placing nearly x300,000 Michigan
people in jobs. Of course I would
have been glad to consult with them
about costs of operating offices, and
other matters and -would have em-
phasized that politics must be kept
out of any employment service.
Depends On Leader
"There is no reason why politics
can't be eliminated from a state
service. It all depends upon the
.leader and his policies. We should
remember that a Michigan State Em-
ployment Service set up in 1933 was
a complete failure and only lasted a
short time. When I was appointed
to head the NRS in October, 1935,
we were dreadfully handicapped by
the ill-will which had been created.
"But we worked hard and over-
came the prejudices of Michigan em-
ployers by giving good service and
staying out of politics. Today the'
record shows that thousands and
thousands of people gt jobs through
the NRS because of the cooperation i
and assistance of about 15,000 Michi-

Open Swim Hour At
Intramural Planned
An open swimming hour at the In-
tramural pool is being sponsored by
the Physical Education faculty on
Saturday, July 17, from 8 to 9 p.m.
The main purpose of the swim is
to enable the men and women stu-
dents on campus to see and use the
pool. During the academic year and
summer women students use the pool
in the Union except when open hours
are offered at the Intramural pool.
The Varsity swimming team and the
Intramural hours for men keep the
Intramural pool's time filled. During
the year mixed swims are sponsored
on Saturday nights and are very well
attended.
Men and women in summer school
are invited to attend this open swim-
ming hour either as a spectators or
participants.

Substratum Theory

changes not consistent with Indo-Eu-
ropean and obviously not conditioned
by neighboring sounds. Another rea-
son, is that Hittite's inflectional sys-
tem is so simplified that it almost re-
sembles that of a modern language,
a phenomenon that is almost inevi-
tably the result of such language ad-
mixture as he suggested.
He gave a number of detailed in-
stances to prove additional state-
ments respecting the absence or loss
of quantitative vowel distinctions in
Hittite, the absence of ablaut or vowel
gradation, the absence of initial r de-
spite its frequency in other Indo-Eu-
ropean languages, the presence in
Hittite of a ts sound where Sanskrit
has a ks combination, and the unique-
ness of the Hittite h.
Without detailed treatment the
speaker referrea also to certain pe-
culiarities of the Hittite verb in-
flection, such as its two fundamental
tenses in place of the several in Indo-
European. These, he said, were only
of minor importance in establishing
the substratum theory; but the theory
itself, he declared, is the only satis-
factory method of solving a problem
which has long puzzled Indo-Euro-
peans.

FORD EMPLOYE TESTIFIES
DETROIT, July 16.-(,)-A Ford
Motor Company employe who said he
was a member of the United Automo-
bile Workers Union testified today he
vas also one of a group of "vigilantes"
instructed to "pick up a lead pipe and
start swinging" in the event of
"trouble" at the Ford plant.
The witness, Mack Cinzori, told a
National Labor Relations Board trial
examiner that he helped obtain sig-
natures to a "vote of confidence" in
Ford labor policies from other em-
ployes.
Explains 'Vote of Confidence'
He said a clerk who gave him the
papers told him "all those who were
satisfied with working conditions and
pay were to sign and those who
weren't satisfied I was to take their
badge number and give it to the fore-
man."
Some discharged Ford workers have
testified they were dismissed after
they refused to sign the "vote of con-
fidence."
Cinzori's testimony before the
NLRB hearing on a complaint charg-
ing the Ford Company with unfair
labor practices including dismissal of
workers for union activity, was the
first by a present employe of the
company. He said that until he got
on the witness stand no Ford official
or foreman knew he was a UAW
member.
Company Union Started
Another witness, Homer W. King,
former electrical maintenance man
at Ford's Rouge plant who said he
was discharged June 14, told the1
NLRB trial examiner Ford foremen
supervised the solicitation of mem-
)erships in the Ford Brotherhood of
America, Inc., an independent union,
early in June.
King, speaking with a slow drawl,
said he saw workmen passing down
the aisles, stopping men at their work
and signing them up and collecting
a 50-cent initiation fee. He said the
signed cards and the money were
taken to .the department superinten-
:ent's desk and put into a box.

Plans For Second Annual Competition
Are Announced By New Play Bureau
(.-

Plans for the second annual play
competition, sponsored by the Bu-
reau of New Plays in New York for
:ollege students and recent graduates,
have been announced by Miss Ther-
esa Helburn, director of the Bureau,
after a series of preliminary meetings
with the Advisory Committee, a mem-
ber of which is Prof. Kenneth T. Rowe
of the local English department.
Michigan Leads Field
Much to the disguntlement of
crack play-writing departments in
Eastern universities, Michigan stu-
dents walked off with the lion's share
of the prizes in last year's competi-
tion.
Arthur A. Miller, '38, of Brooklyn,
a former Daily staff member, headed
the list of prize-winners with a $1,-
250 award given him for his Hopwood
Award winner. "They Too Arise," pro-
duced on campus here last Spring
after announcement of the Bureau's
award Feb. 1. Another award of $500
was made to Robert Wetzel of New
York, who graduated here in 1933,
while Theodore Kaghan, who was
known as Theodore Cohen on the.
campus when he was here two years
ago, received honorable mention.
Movie Executive Advisors
On the Advisory Committee of the
Bureau are Prof. Walter Prichard
Eaton of Yale, chaifman; Professor
Rowe; Prof. Frederick H. Koch of
the University of North Carolina; and
the representatives of the seven ma-
jor motion picture companies spon-
soring the Bureau of New Plays.
These last are: Marion Avery, Co-
lumbia Pictures Corporation; J. Rob-
ert Rubin, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer
Corporation; Russell Holman, Para-
mount Pictures, Inc.; Leda Bauer,
RKO Radio Pictures, Inc.; Edwin P.

Kilroe, Twentieth-Century-Fox Film
Corporation; Charles Beahan, Uni-
versal Pictures Company, Inc.; Jacob
Wilk, Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc.
The Bureau of New Plays was
founded May 4, 1936 by these same
seven companies in association with
Theresa Helburn to discover and en-
courage young playwriting talent for
the theatre and to assist authors, notI
only with financial aid but with crit-
icism and advice, toward a profes-
sional goal at a different period in
their careers. To this end funds have
been appropriated for competitive
cash awards, as well as for scholar-
ship and fellowship awards.
Awards Again Offered
Awards of $500 will again be made+
to the authors of the six best plays
submitted in the competition. At the
discretion of the Burea uof New Plays,.
and on the basis of future promise'
and financial need, these awards may
be increased to scholarship awards of;
$1,250 or to fellowship awards of
from $1,500 to $2,500. More awards
may be granted if the material sub-;
mitted justifies it. If, in the opinion
of the judges, the material submitted
does not justify the full quota ofi
awards, the Bureau also reserves the
:ight to grant only as many as they1
recommend.
The recipients of such scholarship
or fellowship awards will be expected+
to submit at least two plays within+
the year's tenure of the scholarship or1
fellowship or within six months there-
after, and in case of production of

one or both of such plays, part of
the scholarship or fellowship awards
shall be considered as advance on
royalties to be returned to the Bu-
reau of New Plays fo' the mainten-
ance of awards.
It was decided to open this second
competition October 1, close it De-
cember 15, and announce the awards
not later than March 15. This change
in dates from last year's competition
was made to allow students who may
have written scripts this summer to
:evise them with professorial crit-
icism in the fall before submitting
them in the competition, to obviate
rushing professors in colleges at the
last moment for letters of recommen-
dation which must accompany the
scripts, and to permit students new
in the fall in playwriting courses like-
wise to enter the competition.
Many Are Eligizle
Any undergraduate or graduate
student now attending any American
or Canadian university or college, or
who has attended such an institution
at any time since September 1, 1931,
whether or not the work for a degree
was completed, is eligible to compete
for the awards.
Plays must be full length, original,
unpublished and unproduced by any
professional theatre, and must have
written recommendation by the head
of the English or drama department
or his authorized representative, of
the college attended by the author.
According to Miss Helburn, "The
colleges are showing a great deal of

interest already. The professors of
playwriting report that their stu-
dents are even now planning what
plays they wish to submit in this com-
petition. A great many of the com-
petitors in last year's competition who
received encouragement and advice
on their manuscripts are working now
on new plays which they expect to
submit in this second play competi-
tion.
A committee of judges selected from
a panel of leading producers, direc-
tors, educators, actors and critics and
Theresa Helburn, ex-officio, will make
the final degisions.
