have fun Saturday afternoons."

Railway Superintendent
To Confer with Labor
Mediator, Seafarers
With certain regulations suspended
by government order in the effort to
help shipments, negotiators tonight
were seeking a settlement of a 48-
hour strike tying up carferry freight
on the Straits of Mackinac.
The carferry cargoes, averaging
about 200 carloads daily of war ma-
terials and other freight, had been
tied up since Monday night when 35
members of unlicensed personnel
went on strike for higher wages.
Schmidt to Confer Today
Herman Schmidt, superintendent
of the Duluth, South Shore and At-
lantic Railroad, came here from Mar-
quette and conferred with a state
labor mediator and representatives of
the Seafarers International Union
On the contention that manage-
ment could not grant wage boosts
without approval of the War Labor
Board, Schmidt was said to be at-
tempting to induce the strikers to
return to work. He said the matter
had been presented to the board and
expressed hope the strikers would re-
turn to work pending a board deci-
Strikers Demand Wage Increases
The strikers, who are unlicensed
crew members, demanded wage in-
creases of about $40 a month to
conform with wages paid on lake
carriers. A six-month retroactive
agreement on the demanded wage i-
crease also was reported sought by
the strikers.
300 Leatheritecks
Receive First Pay
It was pay day for approximately
300 Marines as officials doled out
the first monthly allotment for the
learthernecks stationed in West
Quad yesterday.
A smile crossed the face of many
of the Marines as crisp new bills, less
no deductions, were handed them by
Marine Gunner W. W. Croyle.
From their left-over change leath-
ernecks relinquished a 30 cent fee for
laundry before leaving the Chicago
House "hold."

Ataturk Molds New Turkey
From Land of Dead Tradition-

Editor's note: This is the third in a1
series interpreting the Turkey of today.
"Old Turkey, the country of Is-
lam, of fatalism and dead tradition,
was the enemy of the newly formed
Turkish Republic in 1923," Orhan
Bati, of Turkey, said yesterday.
Ataturk's first steps were to set up
a democratic form of government
with the aid of cabinet members,
Bati said. Under this constitution,
the governing rights without any ex-
ceptions belong to the people.
Assembly Chooses President
The only representative of the
people is the Grand National Assem-
bly, in which each member repre-
sents 20,000 people, Bati explained.
The president is chosen every four
years by the members of the assem-
"All men and women who have at-
tained the age of 18 may vote and
all men and women who are 30 or
over may be elected to the National
Assembly," Bati explained.
Ataturk Abolished Khalifet
After the government was set up,
Ataturk started to improve the other
faults of the nation, Bati said. "He
soon realized that the Islam Religion
-was going to hinder the nation's in-
dustrial advancement. Consequently,
he abolished the Khalifet and made
religion completely separate from the
"This was just the beginning,"
Bati said. "Very shortly, Switzer-
land's civil code and bankruptcy laws
were adapted. From Republican
Germany Turkey took over the Com-
mercial Code and the penal code of
pre-fascist Italy was adapted to
Turkish needs."
Speaking of the literacy rate in

Turkey, Bati pointed out that after
the adoption of the Latin alphabet
in place of the Arabic alphabet and
the establishment of adult schools
throughout the country, the illiter-
acy rate fell from 80% to 30%.
"Universities were established at
Istanbul and Ankara," Bati said.
"When the Nazis expelled the Jews
from Germany, Turkey invited the
men of science to teach in her uni-
versities and to become Turkish citi-
zens if they pleased to do so.
"All of these improvements and
advancements were not enough to
put Turkey in the position she had
occupied during the 16th and 17th
centuries," Bati added. "Industrial
development in the country was still
very negligible. It was to this work
that Ataturk next turned his atten-

"When the war started, we Japan-
ese-Americans who were living on the
West Coast did not expect to be evac-
uated; for we were Americans,"
Tsune Baba, instructor in Japanese,
said in a lecture in the Union last
night sponsored by the Inter-Racial
"My brother and I had a laundry
establishment started by my father
and my uncle in 1903. Since Decem-
ber 1941 business dwindled as we ex-
pected, and in April 1941 we had to
sell the business," he said.
Everything Thrown Away
"We were forced to throw away
almost everything before the evacu-
ation. We were all very disanpointed.
We had to live in crowded hostels and
barracks in an old race track. Both
citizens and non-citizens were put
in here.
"We tried to brighten the spirits of
the youth by education and recrea-
tion projects. We encouraged sports
and handicraft. We lived here about
three months before being sent to re-
location centers," Mr. Baba said.

"Finally an order .came that we
were to be moved inland to central
Utah. We were settled in Topaz,
Utah. The room in which I lived with
my family was 20 by 20. When we
first got to the barracks there was
dust an inch thick on the floor.
Lived in 20 Barracks'
"Our place was divided into 20 bar-
racks with a common kitchen and a
common shower. We all ate in one
mess hall. There was an allotment .of
$.45 per day per person for food. We
worked for between $12 .and $19 a
"In December 1942, we held our
first election. I was made chairman
of the community council. The gov-
ernment intended to establish both
industry and agriculture in Topaz,
but in the end only agriculture was
"When we were finally allowed to
leave camp to accept, certain jobs',
we felt that we must show our fellow
Americans that we are , really loyal
and that we can assimilate ourselves
if given a chance," he said.

Dr. Ewbank
Lectures on
Professor Advocates
Decisions Based on
Grounds of Reason
"Both persuasion and propaganda
are based on the same idea that mn.
is essentially a non-rational being,"
Dr. Henry L. Ewbank, professor of
speech at the University of Wiscon-
sin, said yesterday at the final speech
assembly held in the Rackham AM-
"Good decisions, however, do not
come from emotional appeals, and
thus we have a conflict," Dr. Ewbank
declared. "What we should try to do
is develop a conscience that makes
decisions on grounds of reasonable-
ness, rather than on emotional 4de-
"We are living in an age of prop-
ganda," the speech professor said.
"To realize this we have only to look
at how effectively the Nazis em-
ployed propaganda on France so that
she lost the war on the psychological
front and never really fought it on
the military," he added.
Propagandists are 'not searehfl
for truth, Prof. Ewbank . declared;
they believe they already have fpind
it and their aim is to bring others to
the fold.
Today the manipulation of puole
opinion has become a big business,
Prof. Ewbank said. "But it is just as
important to acquire skill in -anly*-
ing arguments of others as it i5 tobe
able to convince others tt.- your
arguments are right," he added.
