Straw Vote to Be Representative Indi-
cation of Broad Campaign
Heads of both Republican and Dem-
ocratic campus organizations Tuesday'
issued a call for all loyal party sup-
porters to come out to the polls at the.
University straw vote Thursday. They
indicated that the resutla of a good
'turnout would be important not only
from the standpoint of evidencing
campus interest in national affairs, but
as a fairly representative indication
of general campaign sentiment. Par-
ticularly emphasized was the fact that
the candidates to be voted on are those
of the Michigan state primaries, thus
giving students a chance to learn the
real significance of these 'ominating

1,000 Stenographers and Bookkeepers
Threaten Walkout Unless
Pay Is Fiaised
(By Associated Press)
Chicago, March 30.- Chicago to-
night faced a general strike of city
employees. One thousand city hall
court stenographers and bookkeepers
went on strike' today, the municipal
garbage reduction plant closed
through the walkout of 400 garbage
handlers and 90 per ceit of the fire-
men threatened to resign unless wage
advances were granted.
Other groups of city employees in-
cluding sewer workers, street inspect-
ors, pumping station engineers and
the laboratory staff of the health com-
missioner's office threatened to strike
unless wage advanes were granted.
The city council which today reject-
ed a revised budget calling for in
crease' of $4,000,000 to provide salary
advances for'city employees met again
tonighttin an endeavor to find a way
out of the financial difficulties.
The city hall was picketed by strik-
ing clerks and stenographers. " The
police were called to preserve order
after a stenographer who remained on
duty was attacked. The sessions of
the city council also were guarded
by policemen.

The flute, 'cello, and harp, manipu-
lated by virtuosi individually famous
on their respective instrum/Ats 'com-
bined to make the Trio de Lutece
which played last evening in Hill au-
ditorium. a rare novelty capable of
rivaling if not surpassing any sim-
ilar organization on the musical rost-
The trip consisting of George Bar-
rere, flutist, Carlos Sazado, harpist,
and Lucie Schmitt, 'cellist, played a
beautifully interpreted program that
was harmoniously in unison. These
musicians are equally as well in in.
dividual solo numbers as in ensemble.
They have a true sense of unanimity
of sym'pathy towards each other and
also towards the interpretation of the
particular number on the music rack.
The harp with its melodious rolling
thirds, sweeping harmonic, and me-
odic scale passages forming a founda-
tion for the deep resonances of the
'cello themes, and the flute with its
delightfully and daintily clear ringing
trills and soaring birdlike calls can
make no more enjoyable musical com-
binations conceivable.
Such an interesting deviation from

the ordinary type of concert as the
Trio de Lute'e will result, no doubt;
in a popujr demand for similar rep-
etitions of this kind of music.

the preparedness movement during
the greatest crisis of our history.
He is not a graduateof WestPoint,
and is not in any sense a. militarist.
His program called for the smallest
standing army that was advocated by
anyone. He is intensely sympathetic
and .human in all his relations to those
under his command.
He is no autocrat, but believes that
our first duty is the restoration of civ-

He sacrificed his career in the army in
order to warn his country of its per-

Though in the face of official oppo-
sition he advocated sending armies to
Europe to save civilization, and is
most sympathetic with our European
Allies. He is opopsed to meddling ht
those European affairs which do not
concern us. He favors the League of
Nations as Americanized by the Lodge
reservations, and he believes in rati-
fying the Peace Treaty without fur-
ther delay, so that industry both here
and abroad .may be put upon its feet
at the earliest possible moment.
He put down the race riots at Oma-
ha and the steel strike riots led by
"reds" at Gary with firmness but with
tact and patience and without firing
a shot, and he did it in such a way as
to win the respect of the laboring

Speaking from his inmost convic-

presents Powerful Appeal
With a powerful appeal to look upon

pendence against tyranny and against
anarchy, with generosity and tolerance
during 4the period of their troubles,
Goshkin won every hearer in his
speech. for a tolerant attitude toward
Russia. Beginning' with a graphic ac-
count of massacres and bloodshed at
the hand of an autocratic govern-
ment, which he himself had witnessed
during his youth, the speaker told of
the ignorance and poverty of the
Russian people and of 'their attempts
at freedom without bloodshed. Gosh-
kin proved that. they had not been
traitors to the Allied cause but that
the Allies had deserted them in their
hour of greatest need.

er," the necessity of less extrava-
gance and defended labor rights.
