II Pros. B. I. Wheeler of the
I University of California, accom-
panied by Mrs. Wheeler, has ar-
rived in Ann Arbor, and plans
to remain here for about ten
days. His son, B. W. Wheeler,
is a new instructor in the Euro-
pean history department.
President Wheeler has had
long connections with the Uni-
I versity. He received an honor-
LL. D. degree here 15 years ago,
I and was the speaker at Com-
imencement 10 years ago. At I
that time he said, "I regard
I Michigan as representing the
I very best type of university."
Engineers Give President Impressive
Majority; Davis Lags in
Third Place
At the end of the first day of bal-
loting in the presidential straw bal-
lot, being conducted at the University
by the Detroit Times, the count
stood: Coolidge, 342; LaFollette, 78;
Davis, 48.
The overwhelming majority of the]
present incumbent is partially ex-4
plained by the fact that these votes
were all taken in the school of engi-
neering. Engineers, are the most con-
servative of-all acsdegnt, grops, andd
would be most likey to support theI
conservative candidate, stated the of-
ficial in charge of the vote. More
than 1,000 votes have been taken in<
the literary and law schools, and willl
be counted today. The results willI
appear in The. Daily tomorrow,.
This straw ballot has been con-
ducted in connection with the var-
ious class elections. No f'eshmen
have voted as yet; the straw ballot
will be extended to them at the time
of their class elections next week. I
An effort will be made to spread
the ballot among the Kiwanans, who
are meeting in convention here this
week. As delegates from all parts ofI
the state are present, this should
prove a particularly representative
ballot for the state.
The vote on the campus will be
continued until every student has had
an opportunity to vote. The finalf
count will run far into the thousands,
exclusive of the downtown ballot, and
should give a definite idea of the wayI
the universities of the country willY
stand next November.
Starting at 2 o'clock next Saturday1
and every afternoon thereafter as
long as the world srie baseball
games last, play by play reports oft
the games will be received over the
radio in the Taproom of the Union.
Last year reports of the world seriesI
were received on the ticker in thet
billiard room but in order to accomo-1
date larger crowds the new plan of
having the reports come to the cafe-
teria is being tried this year. 1
The radio is being specially ar-
ranged by J. A. Barkovitch, '25E, and t
K. Donnel, and reports will come in
over the Union's own set.
The bowling alleys at the Union
opened yesterday for the winter, and
