Toledo, O., May 11—General Motors executives conferred with their striking Toledo workers today in an effort to settle the strike in the local Chevrolet plant that has forced a shutdown o£ six other General Motors plants. The conference represents aa employer concession. Heretofore, General Motors has refused to confer with strikers until they return to work. Today's meeting was to be attended by William S. Knudsen, executive vice-president of General Motors, and executives of the Chevrolet Company. Workers were represented by the strike": commUtee and officials of the United' Auto Workers Union, Edward F. McGrady, first assistant secretary of labor, and Thomas J. Williams, federal labor concili- i ator, were present at the request cf both parties. The strike has been under way for weeks, tying up the local plant where differentials and gear boxes for chevrolets are made. The stoppage of parts forced assembly and body plants to close. Last Wednesday the workers voted on a company plan to end the strike and rejected it.

It was called Peru and Indianapolis Railroad. Judge Nelson held a large block of stock in this railroad. I recall tha first train that came into Tipton. It was, as it were', a log cabin' on a flat car. "Indiana's soil was rather spotted with a good deal of yellow and blue clay with streaks of good soil. It was some years before the fields were drained and the roads were made passable. "This section of the state was low and swampy and roads were built overj these swamps by filling in with big logs laidi side by side and chinked in with-brush, small poles and! dirt. I have seen miles of this kiiid of roads in Indiana. In the spring roads were impassable. Four horses on an empty wagon would sometimes g r.> t stuck in tiie mud. During the period of the worst bad roads, people resorted to horseback, going into town; to do their trading. Later roah grading and drainage helped to:improve tho roads aiid a county tax was levied for graveling roads. In some- sections plank roails were laid and turnpikes made.

BEFORE SENATE GROUP (Tiy Unitoil Press). New York, May 11.—The charge that federal relief money is being used to teach workers how to overthrow the government and establih a Soviet union here was placed today before the senate appropriations committee by the federal grand jury association of New York City. Not only are the funds being used to finance classes in Communism, the association charged adults attending such courses are in a letter to the committee, but paid ?S a week for subsistence. The letter explained that the association, whose membership includes many prominent men, including Governor Herbert Lehman, who have served on federal grand juries, had knowledge from which first hand confidential to base its sources on charges. "We understand" the communi-i cation said, "that there were some j 200,000 of such students in morel than twenty schools for workers j scattered throughout the country, and that the graduates were to become instructors and leaders in activities intended to bring: about the overthrow of our government.

The letter concludes with a request that the committee act to bar relief allottmeuts for such purpose. Walter Langsdorf, assistant administrator of the. Emergency Relief Bureau here, explained that the project referred to by the association', had originatd with the FERA in Washington following consultations with the affiliated workers schools, a private organization that operates' schools throughout the country. He denied that communism and subversive doctrines were taught. But he admitted that the teachers, who were paid $24 a week, taught how strikes were fomented. He added that the courses were no different from those given ia many colleges.
