Senators Relax for Another
Round of Southern Oratory
Against Measure.
By tne Associated Press.
Senators settled back today for an
other round of Southern oratory in
the filibuster against the anti-lynch
lng bill.
“There are still a lot of Senators
who would like to speak,” said Sen
ator Connally, Democrat, of Texas,
leader of opposition to the measure.
Southern members have spoken
against the bill since last Tuesday.
Debate on farm legislation, starting
tomorrow, will interrupt the anti
lynching discussion.
Old-timers have sniffed a bit at
the talk now under way in the Sen
ate and have recalled several “real
In May. 1908, for instance, “Old
Bob ’ La Follette set the record by
talking continuously for 18 hours.
Milk, varied occasionally with a raw
egg, was his diet.
Reed Smoot of Utah made an 11
hour and 25 minute stand in January,
1915, and a little later 78-year-old
Senator Gallinger talked 14 hours
and 45 minutes in intermittent
speeches over a four-day period.
In 1893 strapping William V. Allen
covered 14 hours on a single cup of
tea. Huey Long held the floor for
15’^ hours in 1935. He couldn't speak
above a whisper when it was over.
Leaders of the current filibuster are
counting heavily upon the deep,
hoarse voice of Senator Borah, Repub

Approximately 200 men marched

of them were haggard and unshaven
Some had several days’ growth of
beard, indicating that they had been
in the plant since the strike began.
After two meetings that lasted
throughout the night betweeen com

Speaking last night at a clased
meeting of 1.300 union members. Mar
tin was heard by persons outside the
meeting hall to say:
"This is not the time nor the place
to call a strike. General Motors has
chosen this time and place for the
strike, but we don't want General Mo
tors to call our strikes. We want to
call them at the right time and place.
"We are in a definite business re
cession in this country. * * * If every
Tom, Dick and Harry anywhere can
call a strike, we won't have a union

One man. speaking on behalf of the
strikers, said: "We don’t want to sacri

the men in the plant they will be
blacklisted and the vigilante move

of town."
To this, Martin replied: "I know
there are 90.000 vigilantes in Mich

He expained, however, that the strike
was jeopardizing negotiations with
General Motors for a new contract.

Asks New Permit to Land in
U. S.—Undaunted by Hin
denburg Crash.
By the Associated Press.
The German government, undaunted
by the disaster to the airship Hinden
berg, hopes to resume experimental
dirigible flights to the United States
next year.
This was disclosed today when the
State Department referred to the Com
merce and Navy Departments a formal
request from German Ambassador
Hans Dieckhoff for a new permit for
landing in this country.
German officials said the Reich
government expects to renew its ex
perimental service in the spring with
the giant new airship LZ-130. This
service is Intended to determine the
feasibility of a regular dirigible pas
senger-mail-express schedule between
thp United States and Germany.
The LZ-130. designed as a sister
ship of the ill-fated Hindenberg, is
nearing completion at Friedrichshafen
Germany. It already had been started
when the Hindenberg exploded on May
5 over Lakehurst, N. J., with a loss of
36 lives.
A static electrical spark which fired
the inflammable hydrogen inflating the
Hindenberg was blamed for the
Germany is said to have hopes of
obtaining non-inflammable helium gas
from the United States for the opera
tion of the LZ-130. An application
for a supply is expected soon from
Until the Hindenberg explosion, this
Government tightly restricted export
of helium. It has a monopoly of this
i gas which is used exclusively in its
own lighter-than-air craft.
Since then, on the recommendatio’r
of President Roosevelt. Congress has
enacted a law permitting export of the
gas in limited quantities for com
mercial and scientific purposes.
