To Hit More Plants
DETROIT, July 29.- (R)-The
"slow pressure" strike in General
Motors Corporation tool and die de-
partments cast uncertainty tonight
over 1940 production prospects, as
signs of increasnig friction between
CIO and AFL unionists appeared.
Every day the strike continues, af
corporation spokesman said, puts the
corporation that much further be-I

Since its inception in the walkout
of a few tool and die workers July
5, the strike has spread to affect 7,-
500 employes, interrupting work in
12 General Motors plants.
Leaders of the CIO United Auto-
mobile Workers threatened tonight
to close additional G.M. units. R. J.
Thomas, UAW-CIO president, an-
nounced the union will take strike
votes at the Delco Battery plant in
Muncie, Ind.; the Delco Radio plant
in Kokomo, Ind., and co-ordinated
Chevrolet and Fisher Body plants in
St. Louis, Mo., Atlanta, Ga., and
Southgate, Calif.
Unionists in other plants in Flint,
Detroit and Pontiac have authorized
strike action but have not been
called out.
The CIO walkout as had little or
no effect on tool an die preparation

poration and the Ford Motor Com-

Threats of additional pressure
against G.M. came at the same time

France To Pay Bonuses
To Parents For Babies!
PARIS, July 29. -(P)- Cash
bonuses for babies were decreed
today by the French government
together with taxes on bachelors
and childless couples to pay for
the bonuses.
The decree designed to spur the
French birth rates as a part of the
national defense program was one
of 80 adopted by the Cabinet in-
cluding provisions for the preven-
tion of abortions and reinforce-
ment of the counter-espionage
The baby prizes and other meas-
ures for encouraging large fami-
lies were aimed at counteracting
rising birth rates in the totalitar-
ian countries while deaths exceed
3irths in France.
(In 1938 France had 34,741 more
deaths than births and Italy, with"
a population about the same as
France's 42,000,000, had 424,000
more births than deaths.)
Elmer Rice's
Play Is Bused
On Nazis' Plot .
A gripping drama of political strug-
gle and intrigue in a small Balkan
country characterizes "Judgement
Day," sixth of the series of seven
plays to be presented by the Michi-
gan Repertory Players during the;
summer season.
The action of the story takes place
in a crowded courtroom where three
people are fighting for their lives.
The trial is on the charge of attempt-
ed murder of the dictator. The charge
is attempted murder of the dictator
of the country.
The play is based partially on the
burning of the Reichstag by the
Nazis in 1933. The party then used
this as a pretext for staging a tre-
mendous trial with communists as
the defendents. Around this factual
background, Elmer Rice, the play-
wright, has built a strong melodrama.
The play created a great contro-
versy in New York when first pre-
sented there. It was successful in a
long run in London last year.
Elmer Rice is a strong believer in
the theatre as a medium for social
protest, as an instrument in man's
struggle to free himself. He could
have written no play better than
"Judgement Day" as an illustration
of his beliefs.
The play is under the direction of
Frederic 0. Crandall. The setting is
by Oren Parker with Miss Lucy .Bar-
ton as costume designer.

Lending Plan Anendment
Is Passed As Senators
Agree To Limit Debate
Curtailment Ideas
SpreadTo House
WASHINGTON , July 29.-(P)-
The Senate approved tonight, 45 to
24, an amendment to the Adminis-
tration's $1,640,000,000 lending bill
designed to prevent government in-
terference with existing private en-
Soon after adopting this proposal
by Senator O'Mahoney (Dem., Wyo.),
the chamber agreed to limit debate
on the lending measure and re-
cessed until Monday.
The, agreement, limiting Senators
to 15-minute speeches, was obtained
by the Administration leadership af-
ter many previous attempts to hasten
a vote had proved futile.
Sentiment Spreads
Sentiment for reduction of the lend-
ing program spread from the Sen-
ate to the House banking commit-
tee during the day, bringing about an,
$850,000,000 reduction in the measure
at that group's hands.
The banking committee recom-
mended House passage of a curtailed
bill carrying a total of $1,950,000,000.
The bill before the Senate already
had been cut down, by a coalition of
Republicans and Democrats, to $1,-
640,000,000. When first introduced
by Administration leaders, the legis-
lation carried $2,800,000,000.
Union Gifts Taboo
Before it recessed, the Senate ac-
cepted by a voice vote an amend-
ment by Senator Tydings (Dem., Md)
to prohibit political contributions by
labor unions or other organizations
except with the foreknowledge of
their members.
Tydings indicated during debate
that the amendment was aimed at
such loans as the $470,000 advance
made to the Democratic party in
1936 by John L. Lewis' United Mine
The O'Mahoney amendment pro-
vides that none of the proposed $350,-
000,000 of public works loans could go
for projects in any field which pri-
vate enterprise already was serving
adequately. It provides also, how-
ever, that if the owners of a private
business refuse a "reasonable" public
offer to purchase, then government
funds could be used for the construc-
tion of a competing enterprise.
Chairman Urges Adoptiot
O'Mahoney, chairman of the gov-
ernment's monopoly investigating
committee, told the Senate that
"there is no solution" to the nation's
business ills along the course of relief
"The solution lies rather in the
stimulation of private enterprise," he
"Ninety per cent of the business
men in the United States only want
to go forward," O'Mahoney shouted,
"Give them the signal. Adopt this
Economy forces predicted the bill
sent to the House by its banking com-
mittee would be trimmed additionally
when it was considered there, prob-
ably next week,
Representatives said 14 members
of the banking committee, including
one Republican, voted for the $1,-
950,000,000 bill and 10 against.

CAMP DAVIS, Wyo., July 29. -
Director Harry Bouchard is begin-
ning to make plans for a new Camp
Davis study hall. 11
He would like to retire the old one
now in use, a 35-year old structure
that was the first residence building
at the present camp. The log cabin,
as it is called by students, was con-
verted from a stable to a dormitory

as a study hall until last year when
the geologists moved to Camp Davis.
Up until that time, there had been
little need for inside work, since the
engineering students had devoted
their time primarily to field opera-
tions. However, with the advent of
the geology students there was an
increased demand for study hall
space, better lighting conditions and
additional drafting tables. The pres-
ent building contains only one table,
