Labor Leaders Battle on Rival Heads Prepare To Invade Congress On Wage-Hour Act WASHINGTON. Dec. 5—<lT.E>— Leaders of labor’s rival factions tonight prepared to shift their two-year internal war from the picket line to the halls of congress to test their strength in a furious struggle over wages-hours legislation. The clash was assured tonight when President William Green announced that the American Federation of Labor is “unalterably opposed” to some provisions of the house wages-hours bill which the Committee for Industrial Organization has tentatively approved, and Thunder Over Mexico.” a sound ] made public the terms of a measure bicture relating the story of the which will be offered as a substi-Lwakening Of the Mexican people tute. iMexican Life ilm To Be hown Today to new cultural and political life will be presented at 9 a.m., 11 a.m., 1 p.m.. and 7:30 p.m., in 5 Old College today.

Dec. 5—(U.P)— The Pacific coast shipping industry’s dispute with sailormen over a 60-cent meal a seaman bought ashore when his ship’s galley was closed appeared headed tonight toward peaceful settlement.

Bogardus inaugurated the social distance class 10 years ago and it has been under his direction since its inception. The speaker will show the different degrees of sympathy and understanding that exist between people. One of the social distances related will be that between parents and their children as demonstrated by the doctoral theses of two of his students, Dr. Meyer F. Nimkoff and Dr. Everett W. Du-Vall. EARLY STUDY Dr. Nimkoff’s study, made 10 years ago, is one of the earliest in this field, whereas Dr. DuVall’s research is one of the most recent. The latter’s thesis concerns underprivileged children, whereas the former was made with normal boys and girls. Dr. Bogardus will compare the parental attitudes of the normal child and the underprivileged child. In discussing the comparison, he commented on the children’s feelings toward their parents in the matter of discipline. The underprivileged child, on the whole, thought his parents too strict, whereas the normal child thought his too easy. “Literature is surprisingly full of social distance studies,” Dean Bo gardus declares. In clarifying this remark, he will use examples ranging from Shakespeare’s “Much Ado ... Joseph Bonnet I About Nothing," which is a classic The first three selections by Bach, in the study of social distance, to will be played by Mr. Spelman after Sinclair Lewis’ “Main Street.” which the Trojan A Capella choir CONDITIONS EXPLAINED will render the next five numbers. j other social distance conditions The organist will then conclude with to be explained are those between the last five selections, ending with democratic and autocratic leader -Joseph Bonnet's “Rhapsodie Cata- ship, employer and employee, stu-lane.” dents and professors, student spe- University students, faculty mem- cializing in different colleges and bers, and the public are cordially schools of U.S.C., lawyers and doc-invited to attend the affair which tors, lawyers and social workers, friends, and races. In concluding his remarks about the speech to be given Wednesday evening, Dr. Bogardus stressed the fact that “when we can measure aocial distance between peresons generally with some degree of accuracy, it will be possible to predict how human relationships are going to develop and problem solutions be arrived at.” Included on the evening’s program is an address by Dr. Rufus B. von KleinSmid and a toast by Dr. Rockwell Dennis Hunt, director of the School of Research. Mrs. Lawrence F. White will play several piano selections. night’s program in Bovard auditorium. Mr. Spelman will be assisted by the Trojan A Capella choir, under the direction of John Smallman. The organist was secured for the program, largely through the efforts of Miss Julia Howell, who is a board member of the Los Angeles chapter of the American Guild of Organists. The A Capella choir, which has presented several programs in Bovard auditorium last year, are prepared to assist the organist in rendering some of the better known pieces of the classical music.

Shepherd and shepherdesses are Japan Bombs British English Merchant, War Vessels Hit in Aerial Raid Near Nanking Copyright, 1937, by United Press SHANGHAI, Monday, Dec. 6— (U.P)—Japanese forces were closing in on Nanking today after a series of aerial raids in which a British warship and four British merchant vessels were bombed. The whole Nanking area was in confusion. Americans sought refuge on the U. S. gunboat Panay and other foreigners on British and French 6hips. The bombed British ships all were hit when Japanese planes raided the big air field at Wuhu, about 50 miles south and slightly west of Nanking, on the Yangtse river, in an effort to destroy Chinese communications and Soviet Russian air lne from Siberia. WARSHIP SHOWERED H. M. S. Ladybird, anchored off Wuhu, was showered with bomb splinters. The British steamers Tatung, of the Buntterfield and Swire interests, and the Tuckwo, of the Jardine lines, and two steamer hulks were reported to have suffered direct hits. A Butterfield and Swire warehouse on the waterfront at Wuhu also was bombed but foreign residents of the city, who had sought refuge in it, escaped. DETAILS SCARCE Headquarters of the British companies here had only bare details of the disasters. It was said that both the Tatung and the Tuckwo had been operating between Chin-kiang, above the barricades the Chinese have built across the Yangtse above Shanghai, and up river ports. The Jardine landing hulk was reported to have burned while the Butterfield hulk was beached after its engine room had been flooded. Both hulks were reported to have been riddled by bomb fragments.

No arrests were made, since enforcement officers must wait until tomorrow to obtain warrants, but the names of scores of violators were taken in Bellows Falls, the county's principal community, and in scattered hamlets. The “blue law” provides a maximum fine of $50 for each violation. It forbids “secular business or employment except works of necessity and charity,” dancing sports or other entertainment for profit.

Before the high tribunal as it reconvenes after a fortnight recess are controversies involving three vital new deal policies—gold, taxes and utilities. All are inextricably entwined in the administration's broad reform and recovery program and a severe government defeat would affect its plans to balance the budget and to combat the current trade slump. Of paramount interest to congressional tax-makers are the cases in which contractors challenge the authority of states and municipalities Carrying out their policy of “Ser-to levy on income from work done vjce to the University,” the Trojan for the federal government. The Knights wrill again sponsor a Christ-government intervened as a friend mas dinner for out-of-town stu- mined band of Trojan gridders. However, it was up to U.C.LA.'s Kenny Washington to provide the headline news of the game. It was the Bruins’ Chocolate Soldier who turned out to be hot copy in the coliseum Saturday afternoon. BOMBARDMENT STARTS The autumnal tang of an early December sundown was settling into the playing field when the Westwood Brown Bomber unleashed an aerial bombardment that came within an ace of nullifying a 19-point lead that the Trojans had built up by virtue of three quarters of strenuous work. Two touchdown passes, flipped by Mister Washington with all the alacrity and accuracy of a sidewinder. changt J the situation as effectively as a.i Elysian park landslide. A recovered Trojan fumble on the U.S.C. 44-yard line set the stage for Washington's first act. A pass fell incomplete. Then Kenr.y faded back into his own territory and with the accuracy of a hash slinjer flung the porkhide to Hal Hirshon on the Trojan 10-yard line frcm where he sped unmolested to a touchdown. Walt Schell’s conversion was good and U.S.C. still led by the seemingly comfortable margin of 19-7. TROJANS KICK OFF The Trojans kicked off and Schell returned the ball to the U.C.LA. 27-yard line. Immediately the Washington-Hir-shon battery went to work again. Washington slipped back to his own 20, drew a bead on the speeding Hirshon, and cut loose with a 62-yard pass that indubitably will be recorded as the longest completed pass in collegiate football. The coliseum was like a mausoleum as the ball went spinninr through the dusk. But when Hirshon snagged the porkhide, the crowd jumped to its feet to roar its Continued on Page Three Homeless' Men To Be Guests Of Knights of the court to plead that such income be made subject to state and local levies even though it admitted that such a ruling Would have the dents. “You may state,” said Dean Bacon, “that the affair has always proven a success—a real, homelike, effect of raising costs of future fed- Christmas atmosphere prevails eral construction The government recognized that if this income is held to be subject to local taxes that contractors will include this item in bidding on future government work.
