Loyal Michigan students wil

with the team and the band taking
the lead, the students will parade
up State street to the Michigan

Plans to make this send-off the
greatest in Michigan's history are
under way. A platform will be
erected in front of Angell hall so
that the grid team will be in full
view of all. Police protection will
be given the student parade as it
proceeds up State street.

Early Returns Indicate Proposal
Carried in All Wards.
Ann Arbor's $350,000 bond pro-
posal, which has been defeated by
city voters in three previous elec-
tions, passed the required 60 per
cent of the total vote in Tuesday's
elections when approximately 4,-
000 voters gave written assent to
the plan for the new sewer system.
Returns early in the evening indi-
cated that the bond had been pass-
ed when every ward carried a ma-
jority of "yes" votes over "no" bal-
The bonding proposal received a
majority even in the stormy Third,
ward, where it was beaten at the
last election, held in April. The

Democratic Party.
(By Associated Press)
Knifing deep into Republican
strength indeast, west and. south,
the Democratic party recorded yes-
terday a notable string of state
victories and threatened seriously
to capture Congress.
The count of the ballots early
today, still far from complete,
showed enough Democrats either
elected or leading for Senate and
House to shave the Republican
margin almost to the vanishing
Needing a net gain of 10 seats
in the Senate and 53 in the House,
the Democrats at 1 a. m: (eastern
time) were leading in enough to
indicate for them a gain of seven
senators and 39 representatives. In
addition, the vote in 16 House dis-
tricts continued so close that they
might swing either way.
Kentucky not Considered.
These computations took no ac-
count of Kentucky where the
Democrats have hope to pick u
a senatorship and several seats in
the House. Kentucky returns will
not be counted until today.
The congressional turn toward
possible Democratic victory became
apparent late in the evening,
mostly on returns from western
and middle-western states, after
New York had turned in a record-
shattering Democratic state major-
ity, and the Connecticut and Ohio
governorship had shown signs also
of passing from the Republican to
the Democratic column.

Gifford Pinchot, meantime, con-
istently was holding a lead for

Tuesday's state-wide election. He defeated William A. Comstock,
Brucker took the lead when the first out-state precincts re j

votes for every one cast for Comstock. The latter conceded defeat

first reports from Wayne county showed the Republican aspirants
running ahead.
The fight was close in sevq'ral counties, including Saginaw,
