Foremen Ask
For CIO Help
Request Reuther
Respect Pickets
By The Associated Press
DETROIT, tJune 24--Striking
Ford Motor Company foremen,
declaring their 35-day-walkout
may continue indefinitely, today
ippealed to the CIO United Auto
l Vorkers to respect foremen's pick-
et lines at three Detroit area Ford
plants employing 85,000 workers.
President Walter P. Reuther
summoned an emergency session
of the UAW-CIO policy commit-
tee Wednesday to act on a re-
quest that production workers
honor picket lines of 3,800 strik-
ing Ford foremen.
The independent Foreman's As-
sociation of America made the
plea after its month-old walkout
failed to close Ford's Rouge, High-
lan Park and Lincoln Plants.
There was no company com-
ment on the latest development
in the seven weeks dispute over
terms of a proposed new contract
covering the foremen.
Specifically, President Robert
H. Keys asked the UAW-CIO to
respect FAA picket lines at the
Ford plants, the Gar Wood In-
dustries, Inc., in Detroit, and the
Midland Steel Products Co. in
If the UAW-CIO agreed, indus-
try sources said the plants would
be forced to close immediately.
Keys admitted in his letter to
Reuther that the strike had not
gone as planned. He asked Reuth-
er to reply by Saturday.
Keys said that, at the outset
of the strike, the FAA had not
deemed it necessary to ask the
UAW-CIO to respect its picket

were in the midst of negotiations

Students Greeted
I extend greetings to all
students who are pursuing
their studies at the University
during this summerssip.,
Opened up before you during
the next eight weeks are the
manifold educational resources
of this institution. We hope
that you will make effective
use of them for the enrichment
of your experience, for the
broadening of the bases of
your understanding, for the
deepening of your insight, and
for the refinement of your
capacities for appreciation. At
no time in human history have
the fruits of educational ex-
perience been more intimately
related to the welfare of man-
kind. We hope that our joint
efforts during the summer ses-
sion can be predicted upon a
realization of this all-import-
ant truth. This is the high
purpose for which the Uni-
versity exists.

Will Allocate
cUrrent Output
Forsee 15 Per Cent
Cut for Consumers
By The Associated Press
CHICAGO, June 24-A shortage
of gasoline in the face of grow-
ing demand today forced Stand-
ard Oil Company (Indiana) to
allocate its output during June,
July and August in 12 of the 15
states it serves, the company an-
The allocation system, which
will amount to approximately a
15 percent cut in the company's
current distribution, is the first
consumer restriction of its kind
since gasoline rationing ended in
August, 1945.
The company said it could de-
liver supplies this summer ap-
proximately equal to those de-
livered a year ago. However,
current demand is about 15 per-
cent above last year, it added.
The shortage was attributed to
inadequate pipeline and refinery
capacities rather than any short-
age of crude oil.
"The making of very large
amounts of heating oils during the
past winter and spring cut ser-
iously into gasoline yields during
that period," the company said in
a statement. "That reduction,
plus unexpected heavy demand,
particularly from the farm trade,
has reduced the company's refin-
ery and terminal stocks of trade
to a level which is 30 percent be-
low that of a year ago.
"Also, in spite of intensive ef-
forts extending over the past
'eight months, anticipatedle-
chases of gasoline blending
stocks during the summer are
substantially less than the quan-
tities which were purchased last.
Standard said the gasoline sup-
ply situation was more acute in
the middle west than elsewhere
because of heavy farm consump-
tion and because it had not been
possible to expand crude oil fa-
cilities in the area enough to take
care of unexpected large refinery
Several pipeline and refinery
expansion projects are under way,
standard added, but will not be
completed in time to meet sum-
mer's demand.
To supplement its own out-
put, Standard said, it has for
several months been buying
ing products from. other man-
ufacturers,bringing the equiv-
alent of a trainload a day from
Texas, and undertaking to move
about 10,000 barrels a day of
crude oil by tank car from west
Texas and. Wyoming.
Standard is the first major oil
company to take such a step. In
New York,a spokesman for the
Phillips Petroleum Compan y,
which serves the same territory,
said no rationing was being con-
sidered. The Texas Co., however,
said it had no comment to make
"as yet."
Maddy Calls
Lea Act Boon
To Students
The Supreme Court decision up-
holding the constitutionality of
the Lea Act was called a boon to
music students by Joseph E. Mad-
dy, president of the NationalMus-
ic Camp at Iuterlochen, according
to an Associated Press dispatch.
The act, which has been known
as the "Anti -Petrillo" law, was

aimed at James C. Petrillo, presi-
dent of the AFL American 'Feder-
ation of Musicians.
Maddy, who is professor of rad-
io music instruction in the music
school here, came in conflict with
Petrillo in 1942 when the union
leader demanded that union mem-
bers be hired to "stand' by" dur-
ing broadcasts of musical pro-
grams from Interlochen. The Na-
tional Broadcasting Company was
forced to cancel the broadcast of

Labor Bill Passage
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, June 24-Gov-
ernment officials reported tonight
the Justice Department is inves-
tigating the sudden walkout of at
least 168,000 soft coal miners to
determine whether an injunction
could be slapped on John L. Lewis
and his union.
This was reported as Rep. How-
ard Smith, Dem., Va., told - the
House the new Taft-Hartley labor'
law may not be sufficient to stop
the "national calamity" of a coal
The walkouts followed yes-
terday's passage of the new lab-
or law over presidential veto,
and some miners raised the cry:
"Let the Senators mine coal."
Smith urged extension of gov-
ernment plant-seizure powers.
Also, the National Coal Asso-
ciation said that a full-scale na-
tional strike seems to be develop-
ing, apparently in "a clear viola-
tion" of the Taft-Hartley law,

Angry Miners
Still Leaving
pits in Protest
PITTSBURGH, June 24-()-
Angry coal miners protesting pass-
age of union-curbing legislation
were leaving the pits in continu-
ing numbers tonight as idle total
rose to more than 175,000 and coal
production decreased proportion-
Alabama, where the walkouts
started yesterday, counted all its
20,000 soft coal miners idle. Only
three of the state's 82 rail-connec-
ted mines-all three non-union-
were working.
In the nation's top-coal pro-
ducing states, Pennsylvania had
41,000 idle and West Virginia,
31,000. Seven other states also
were hit by the wildcat strikes.
Virtually all the strikers are
members of the AFL-United Mine
Workers, although 1,700 progress-
ive mine workers joined the walk-
out in Illinois. The walkouts,
which concentrated in the soft
coal fields, occurred without union

One operators' spokesman in
West Virginia who declined use
of his name predicted that half
of the state's strikers "will be back
on the job tomorrow."
Walkouts in the pits hit the
