Paul J. Kern, '29, former editorial

tarily withdrew from the Univer-

clashes with the authorities.
On Jan. 9 the Administrative
board placed him on probation for
the balance of last semester for vio-
lation of the University's automo-
bile regulation. This action auto-
matically suspended him from par-
ticipation in the activities of The
Daily, where his reappointment at
the conclusion of his probation was

COUNCIL VOTES TO FILL VACANCIES
LEFT1BY WITHDRAWAL OF PREIDIENT
KERN AND VICE P RESIDENT WARREN
STATE STREET" GAINS OVERWHELMING
VICTORY IN HEATED STUDENT
COUNCIL FRACAS
By George C. Tilley
Another political skirmish, cleaved along the Washtenaw-
State 'lines established last fall, ended last night in the election of
Frederick M. Asbeck, '29, to fill the president's chair left vacant
by the resignation of Paul J. Kern, '29, and the election of Richard
C. Kurvink, '29, and Durwin D. Algyer, '29, as regular members.
The latter two will restore the council to its normal membership of
13, depleted by Kern's withdrawal from the University and Vice-
president Robert F. Warren's withdrawal from the council to devote
himself to the wrestling team of which he is captain.
It was a clearly defined victory for State Street, and marked
,he end of Washtenaw's hegemony in the council. Asbeck, Kurvink,
and Algyer were the candidates picked by an informal caucus of the
State-Street council-members just before the meeting. State Street
now has a theoretical working majority of 10 to 3 in the council.
The meeting opened with Secretary Willard E. Lowry, '30,
