Wet Victory Is
Prophesied In
Vote Monday
Wets Point To Majority In
State Repeal Poll Held
Last November
900,000 Expected
To Vote Tomorrow
Convention Will Be Held
April 10; Election Will
Decide Outcome
DETROIT, April 1.-P)-Because
87 of Michigan's 100 State represen-
tative distrits last November voted
for elimination of the State's bone-
dry law, opponents of prohibition to-
night were predicting a decisive pro-
nouncement in Monday's election in
favor of repeal of the Eighteenth
Amendment.
Opponents of repeal, while making
no predictions as to the outcome,
have expressed belief that the elec-
tion of delegates by county units
would cut materially into the margin
repeal proponents have claimed.
What normally would be an elec-
tion of relatively little interest has
taken on the aspect of another refer-
endum on the prohibition issue, be-
cause the state's voters are to name
delegates to a State convention to
act on the proposed repeal of the
prohibition amendment. Moreover,
the voters by their choice of dele-
gates are to determine whether
Michigan shall vote for or against
ratification of the repeal amendment.
The convention will be held April
10, but its action will be decided in
Monday's election when a wet or dry
pledged delegate will be elected in
each of the 100 State representative
districts.
Because of the interest aroused by
the repeal question, State officials are
predicting the vote Monday may ap-
proximate 900,000, an unusually
.:te for spring election.
Education Is
Discussed At
SpringParley
Continuing in the same trend of
thought that marked Friday's ses-
sion, the meeting of the spring par-
ley yesterday afternoon at the
League further entered upon the dis-
cussion of the nature and function
of education.
Definitions of education of the
previous sessions-integration of per-
sonality, aesthetic enjoyment, har-
monious development, exercise of
the intellect-drew added comment
from the audience of faculty and
students which necessitated further
explanation of the part of the pro-
ponents of these particular concepts
of education.
Prof. Samul T. Dana, dean of the
School of Forestry and Conservation,
called education "a process that be-
gins when we are born and continues
until we die," He also suggested that
the social and intellectual life of the
University be integrated more than
they are at present and cited the
parley as a move in this direction.
A practical suggestion toward fur-

thering the efficiency of education
was introduced by Prof. Arthur D.
Moore of the College of Engineering
who advocated a vocational guidance
bureau on the campus. For $10, he
said, the bureau would give exami-
nationsto the student to determine
the field of endeavor to which he or
ghe would be best suited.

Socialists End
Campaign For
City Positions

McFarlan, Sellars
Final Pledges;
True Socialism

Make
Define

The Socialist Party concluded its
election campaign last night in the
County Court Building with ad-
dresses by each of the candidates for
alderman, and Prof. H. J. McFarlan,
Socialist candidate for Regent. Two
representatives of the Workers of
Ann Arbor Association also spoke.
Prof. Roy W. Sellars of the phil-
osophy department, a candidate for
alderman in the seventh ward said
that many people had the wrong idea
of socialism. He defined it as "pub-
lic ownership and public control of
industries which are essentially pub-
lic in their character, such as gas
plants, electric plants, milk supply
concerns. Public schools and public
universities are examples of socialism.
Socialism is still democracy, but is
simply an expansion of democracy's
functions."
Prof. H. J. McFarlan said that
there were two general classes of
people, the workers and those who
paid salaries. "By workers I do not
mean only ditch-diggers," he said.
"I am myself a worker, laboring with
my brain and being paid for that
labor." The real struggle in 'life, Pro-
fessor McFarlan said, was between
these two classes, for they have com-
pletely divergent interests.

alderman in the fourth ward, saic.

cause it was used to getting all pos-

No 'Ens ian Orders
Taken After April 7
Michiganensians must be pur-
chased before April 7, it was said
yesterday by John A. Carstens, '33,
business manager.
On that date the order for the
number of yearbooks to be printed
will be sent in, he said, and, as no
extra copies are to be made up
this year, it will be impossible to
obtain one if it is not ordered be-
fore spring vacation.
A campus sale of the book will
be held Tuesday and Wednesday
to give those who have not already
made their purchase a last chance.

Welfare Loan,

Up Tomorrow
R. F. C. Loan To ContinueL
City Poor Support Afters
May 1 Is Before People1
To Build Sewage E
Plant With Fundsr
Second Proposal Wouldt
Put Costs Of Plant On
Consumers
A proposal for a $550,000 welfaret
loan from the R. F. C. for the con-t
struction of a city sewage disposalt
plant and contests for city and ward
offices will confront Ann Arbor voterst
at the annual spring primary Mon-t
day. The electorate of Washtenaw
County will also select its representa-e
tive at the State convention to ratify
-r reject the proposed twenty-firsts
amendment repealing national pro-t
hibition.i
The loan proposal requires a 60t
per cent favorable vote for passage.V
The measure has received the ap-s
proval of state officials, but it isI
doubtful at the present time that thec
R. F. C. will make the loan, evene
if the measure receiveshthe approvalt
of the voters. City officials say that,
if the loan is not secured, Ann Arbor
will be without funds to carry on r
its welfare work after May 1, andr
more than 2,200 persons will be de-
prived of the necessities of life. e
Would Give Work to Jobless
The sewage plant proposal is de-
signed to provide work for the job.-
less men rather than make them thet
recipients of a dole. During the pastI
week more than 200 welfare workerst
went on strike when the city cutt
their pay because of the fund short-t
age. The City Council then agreed
to restore the old wage scale tem-j
porarily. These men have formed
an organization known as the City
Workers and have endorsed the loanJ
proposal. -
Other organizations supporting the
measure are the Ann Arbor Minis-
terial Association and the Ann Arbor
Trades Council. It is opposed by the!
t'axpayers' League.
A second measure on the ballot
would provide for the operation of
the sewage disposal plan on a utility
basis. By the provisions of this
measure, citizens would pay for sew-
age disposal under the same condi-
tions as those under which they pay
their water supply.
Personalities Have No Place
The wet and dry candidates are
Nathan Potter and Lewis Reimann.
Mr. Potter was selected as the anti-
prohibition candidate. He is county
commander of the Crusaders. If
elected he is pledged to vote for the
repeal of the 18th amendment. Mr.
Reimann, president of the Washte-
naw Civic League, dry organization.
is pledged to vote against repeal. At
a meeting at Labor Temple last week,
Mr. Reimann attempted to inject
personalities into the campaign. Mr.
Potter pointed out that they have no
place in the issue, that even though
Mr. Reimann were the "worst
drunkard in town," he would be
obliged to vote against repeal if
elected. In the election last fall,
only one ward of the city, the sixth,
!voted dry.
Robert Campbell, former treasurer
of the University, is the Republican
candidate for mayor. He is opposed
by Rolla Frisinger, contractor, Dem-

ocrat. Mr. Campbell has served in
j the office of mayor. Mr. Campbell
has pledged himself to judicious
wage cuts, while Mr. Frisinger has

Michigan "will have forgotten

>f the Roosevelt relief program, Gov.
Villiam A. Comstock told a cheer-
ng crowd of more than 1,500 per-
.ons which packed the Whitney
rheatre here last night.
The governor predicted that the
egislature would swing into decisive
action after the election because
'first, there will be no more need
or political jockeying and, second,
hey will have talked themselves
ut." In the new budget, he pointed
ut, a 50 per cent reduction would

12,000,000 for welfare work and
;11,000,000 for the primary school
und, all this money to be raised by
r state sales tax, the realiestate
ax being entirely eradicated.
Michigan Crucial State
Governor Comstock urged a de-
isive vote on the prohibition issue
n Monday. "Michigan," he added,
'may well decide the fate of national
)rohibition. We are supposed to be
wet state. If we vote wet, we can
,ad a nation-wide parade that will
esult in the quick end of prohibi-
ion. If we should vote dry qur ex-
mple would kill the Twenty-First
\mendment "
Taking a fling at the Rev. R. N.
lolsaple for his statement that the
'eturn .of beer would mean the re-
urn of therold saloon, Governor
,omstock remarked that the "drys
lie hard." "I have spent the last
.wo weeks at the amusing pastime
>f keeping beer bills off the floor of
he Legislature. I didn't want beer
o get mixed up with repeal. We
gaited 15 years for beer (legal beer,'
mean) and I think we can wait a
ew weeks longer."
Defends Legislature
Governor Comstock defended the
Legislature. "It is a good Legisla-
ure. "You don't want a bunch of
,es-men up there." He spoke jest-
ngly of his experiences during the
three months that he has been gov-
rnor. He described how he had
,ried during his whole life being a
anker. "Now, I have 268 of them,"
ie said. "I have been sitting up
lights with people ever since I have
een governor," he continued. "Next
veek I'm going to be sitting up with

ng to be a lot of fun."
