as his subject, "Government and
Business in the Presidential Cam-

causes of the unusual feature this

"It is very refreshing to political
life to have two candidates of such
high quality as Hoover and Smith
running for the office of Presi-
dent," said Prof. James K. Pollock,
of the political science department'
in an interview yesterday.j
"In my opinion, Herbert Hooverl
is one of the greatest men in the
world," Professor Pollock declared,
"and Al Smith is one of the out-
standing governors of New York,
one of the most competent leaders,
the Democratic party has ever pro-
duced. Candidates such as these'
two men raise the level of politics
all over the country."
"I deplore, however, the personal
slander that has been rife on both
sides. Calling Mr. Hoover an "ali-
en" and an "enemy of the Ger-1
mans" and branding Mr. Smith a
"drunkard" constitute unfair and
unjust tactics. The vote should be
based upon the issues of the cam-
paign and the qualifications of the
candidates without bringing in
petty matters.

"Italian Press Is An Integral Part
Of The Regime," Declares
Italian Premier
(By Associated Press)
ROME, Oct. 10---The duty of a
Fascist press is to avoid what might
harm the regime and to do what is
useful for it, Premier Mussolini told
the directors of some 70 Fascist
daily papers who met in the Ohigi
palace today for a press conference.
"Fascism," declared the Premier,
"is an all-inclusive regime and the
press is an integral part of it and
cannot be apart from that unity.
That is why the entire Italian press
is Fascist and should itself feel
proud to fight under the Fascist
banner," he said. "Thus journal-
ism, more than a profession or a
trade, becomes a mission of great
and delicate importance.
"The freest press in the entire
world is the Italian," he said, add-
ing that in other countries "the
newspapers are at the beck and call
of a plutocratic group, of party and
individuals, or are reduced to the
insignificant object of buying and
selling exciting news which pro-
duces on the public a kind of satu-
ration with symptoms of debility,
inanition and imbecility."
In other places newspapers are
in the hands of trusts which con-
sider the press as the same level,
as the iron or leather industries, he
asserted. "Italian journalism," he
declared, "is free because it serves.

Elaine Gruber, Ardith Johnson And
James Duffield Are Returned
Victors After Recounts
Senior literary students were still
without a' president last night al-
though their election was held yes-
terday afternoon. Three offices
were filled satisfactorily, but due
to a near-tie vote for president
between Loy Sutherland and Fen-
ton Raber, the Student council has
cancelled the results of the presi-
dential vote for the president for
the present, according to Paul J.
Kern, president of the council.
A conference is to be held today
by a committee from the council
and J. A. Bursley, dean of students,
as to which course it will be advis-
able to take: a recount of the pres-
ent votes, a new election or decla-
ration of election of one candidate,
by the Council.
Elaine Gruber was elected vice-
president over Josephine Welch,
218 to 190. Ardith Johnson defeat-

In the first counting of ne pres-
idential race, Sutherland lead 207
to 202. Councilmen conceded to
demands for a ,recount, as there
were grounds for one. Two recounts
followed, and one gave Raber a
margin of one vote while the other
favored his opponent by the same
margin. Several ballots were lack-
ing on the additional recounts and
it was thought wise to delay further
action until the council meeting, at
which time the committee was ap-
