WASHINGTON, May 7,-For the
first time in 36 years, the Senate
today refused to confirm a nominee
to the Supreme Court, rejecting
Judge John J. Parker of North
Carolina, by a vote of 41 to 39.
The decision forces President
Hoover to look elsewhere for a man
to take the seat made vacant by
the death of Associate Judge Ed-j
ward T. Sanford of Tennessee, but
there was no indication tonight
that he had a nominee in mind.j
There were intimations from the
White House that Mr. Hoover would'
have something to say about the
Senate's action and that he would
not go to the South again for aj
nominee. It was believed also, that
he would not reappoint Parker byI

Student #Council Outlines Plan
for Conducting Straw Vote
at Time of Elections.
Nominating Committee to Name
Candidates for Positions
on Council Sunday.
In an effort to determine the
amount of sentiment regarding the
adoption of an honor system in the
literary college, a straw vote on
the subject will be taken in con-
junction with registration for the
spring elections, it was decided at
a meeting -of the Student Council
last night. A special committee
was appointed to take charge of
the voting.
Although increased interest is
being shown on the subject of the
honor system, the student govern-
ing body felt that it should get an
expression of the opinion of the
students enrolled in the literary
school before taking any definite
steps in this direction.
Council to Choose Nominees.
Candidates for positions on the
council for next year will be nam-
ed at the meeting of the nominat-
ing committee Sunday afternoon.
In accordance with the amend-
ment passed recently, whereby the
membership of the council would
be increased to the extent that
five juniors including one from the
engineering college be selected to
the council, 10 sophomores and six
juniors will be selected by the com-
mittee since at least as many can-
didates are required as the number
of positions to be filled.
The annual spring campus elec-
tions will be on Tuesday, May 20,
while registration for the elections
will come on Thursday and Friday
of the preceding. week . Al
will take place in booths t the
center of the diagonal, it was de-
Students Will Register.
Dual and illegal voting will be
eliminated by the registering of
students each of whom will be re-
quired to fill out slips with his sig-
nature. A complete file of signa-
tures will be kept at the booth for
reference on election day. The two
signatures will then be compared
before the student will be allowed
to vote. Students in all the colleges
of the University will vote at the
one booth although the ballots will
be a different color for each school.
It was suggested that a person be
made to identify himself, prefer-
ably with his Union card in the
case of men students, during regis-

CHICAGO, May 7- Thomas F.
Donovan, chairman of the Illinois
Democratic state central commit-
tee, indicated he will answer to-
morrow the challenge laid down in
"Washington by Representative
Ruth Hanna McCormick regarding
a statement that $750,000 was spent
in her recent primary campaign
in addition to the amount she re-
ported spent.
This statement Is attributed to,

the Democratic state central com-
mittee which met yesterday'. In a
telegram to Mr. Donovan, Mrs. Mc-
Cormick demanded that if the
committee knew of funds spent
aside from those she had reported,
the evidence be sent to Chairman
Nye of the Senate investigating
committee. Mr. Donovan said he
had not yet received the telegram
and declined to make any state-
ment until tomorrow.
When the telegram arrives it will
be given prompt attention, he said.
