Ann Arbor Citizens Go Against' the
Proposition by Margin of
Two Votes.

Any doubt as to the extent of the as-
mbly boycott may be quickly dispell-
I by a use of the telephone in an en-
avor to obtain an engagement for
ich an event. It is now said that all
it two of the social groups of the j
omen have placed a firm trilby on
.ese events. But the come-back of
e men is already a certainty, for not
ily in those groups who have former-
frowned upon the mid-week semi-
iblic dances, but in many other
owds as well, there is an a*vowed
ndency to retaliate. This means,
en, that a "no-assembly-no-other-
cial-event" policy will be adhered to
the men in the university.
"We see no harm in the assenblies

By the close margin of two votes,
Ann Arbor citizens yesterday turned
down the proposition of the municipal-
ity purchasing the water plant. Out of
a total of 2,386 votes cast, 1,429 favor-
ed the acquisition, but as these did not
constitute the necessary three-fifths,
the water plant will probably. remain
in private control for some time to
come. It is likely that a recount will
be demanded by the friends of the
A noticeable feature, of yesterday's
election was the scarcity of women
voters. Out of a large representation
of the fair sex who registered previous
to the election, only a few took the
trouble to return for the balloting, and
it is to this fact in part that the defeat
of the measure is attributed.
Pvovided a recount does not change
the result of the election, the city will
now have two alternatives of erecting
an independent plant of its own or
renewing the present contract with the
water corporation, It is also possible
that an appeal will be made to the
state supreme court for a revaluation
of the local water plant.
