Smith Assails T
Changes In S
Disapproval of three important
proposed amendments to the state
constitution was voiced by Harold R.
Smith, Secretary of the Michigan
Municipal League, who led an open
forum in Pattengill Auditorium last
night.
Characterizing the bond expendi-
ture amendments, the Homestead
amendment, and the Fifteen-Mill
Limitation amendment as proposals
which are "inconsistent and would
lead to disenfranchisementMof a large
part of the electorate," Mr. Smith
pointed out that all are inseparably
linked together in spite of their sep-
aration on'the ballot, and that pass-
age of the measures would foster
"gross inequalities" and strike deep
into University and primary school
I appropriations.
i Would Limit Bonding Issuesd-
".The first of these proposed amend-
ments would limit the vote on bond-
ing issues to those who have property
assessments, and so presupposes aa
continuance of the property tax," Mr.
Smith stated, adding that it would
disenfranchize many voters who at
present are not so affected." As for
the Homestead exemption proposal, Ia
believe that the exemptions which
will apply to all assessments under

hree Proposed
tate Constitution
$3,000 will foster discontent, since
holders of estates valued at $4,000
will be paying almost two and one
half times as much as the former
class."
Mr. Smith also showed how the
Homestead amendment, if passed,
would slash small town and village
assessments by as much as 90 per
cent in some cases, since property is
characteristically split up into small-!
er holdings per land holder in these
districts.
The Fifteen-Mill Limitation pro-
posal would, in the opinion of Mr.
Smith, be detrimental to the interests
of the state in that it would prove a
hindrance to the adoption of an in-
come tax, would reduce University
and other school funds, and would
lessen, instead of broaden, the basis
of taxation. Indecision as to the
proper distribution of the fifteen
mills would be a further resultof
passage of this proposed amendment,
he added.
Discusses Liquor Control
The liquor control amendment, the
legislative reapportionment amend-'
ment, the ward election amendment,
the referendum and the pardon werej
also discussed by the speaker.
"Michigan is a peculiarly difficult
state in which to obtain perfect ap-
portionment in both the Senate and
House of Representatives," Mr.
Smith said, "because'of the size of
the principal city, Detroit, which is
constantly charged with 'control' of
the state government through pre-
ponderance' of representatives at
Lansing."
The amendment would change the
tenure of office of Senate members
from two to four years, while the
state would be blocked off into sec-
tions of 48,000 population for election
of delegates to the House of Repre-
sentatives. Mr. Smith argued in fa-
vor of this proposal, since he declared
it would put Michigan in the van of
several other progressive statesvwhich
are adopting similar four-year ten-
ures for state Senate members.

University this year, according to of-
ficial figures released yesterday by
Ira M. Smith, registrar. This number,
which was revised to include late

and Graduate, showed increased en-
rollment this year. The Graduate
School has 1,417 students, an in-
crease of 23. The School of Forestry
and Conservation has the largest
percentage increase, 7.5. The School
of Music had 188 a year ago and 189
today, an increase of one.
In the column of losses, the most
conspicuous are the College of Phar-
macy with a decrease of 32.8 per cent
and the School of Nursing with a loss
of 22.2 per cent.

ment is as follows: literary college,

Glass Rephes
To G.O.P. With
Counter Attack
Virginia Senator Assails
President's Proposals As
'Inflationary'
WASHINGTON, Nov. L.-(/P)-Sen.
Glass of Virginia tonight said that
President Hoover submitted to the
last Congress "inflationary proposals
that would have rocked the founda-
tions of our banking system."
In his first speech of the campaign,
released by the Democratic national
committee, in advance of its delivery
over the radio, the former secretary
of treasury assailed the Hoover ad-
ministration and urged the election
of Franklin D. Roosevelt to the pres-
idency.
He denied statements of President
Hoover and his supporters that eco-
nomic troubles had their origin in
Europe, and the Republican asser-
tion that the Democrats impeded
administration efforts to balance the
budget and improve business.
Of the inflationary proposals
which he attributed to the President,
he said that if they had been enacted
they would "not only have tempted
foreign raids on our gold reserve but
would have incited a dangerous de-
mand for redemption."
"Had these proposals been adopt-
ed," he said, "they would have made
millions of dollars of foreign secur-
ities with which this country was de-
luged by administration connivance a
basis for tremendous credit expan-
'sion."

Degener Opposes Bernard
For Presidency; Briggs
Runs Against Jewett
Both political parties of the jun-
ior literary class canvassed the cam-
pus last night for supporters in a
last minute drive before the election
which will take place from 4 to 5:45
p. m. today in room 25 Angell Hall.
The largest turn out in the history
of class elections is predicted by cau-
cus chairmen of both parties, and
each claims to have a sufficient num-
ber of pledged supporters to carry
the day.
The State Street party is head ed
by Richard Degener, Chi Psi, while
Charles Bernard, Independent, has
been nominated by the Washtenaw
party for the presidency of the class.
The J-Hop chairman nominees
are Richard Briggs, Pi Kappa Alpha,
Washtenaw party, and Charles Jew-
ett, Alpha Delta Phi, State Street
party.
Other nominees on the State Street
ticket are Francis M. Wistert, Phi
Delta Theta, treasurer, and Wallace
Graham, Psi Upsilon, Cyrus Huling,
Phi Gamma Delta, Robert Saltzstein
Zeta Beta Tau, Brackley Shaw, Sig-
ma Phi, for J-Hop representatives;
Martha Bowen, Mosher-Jordan and
Delta Gamma, vice president; and
Josephine Woodhams, Collegiate So-
rosis, secretary.
Washtenaw Candidates
Washtenaw candidates are Clinton
Sandusky, Trigon, treasurer; Pru-
dence Foster, Kappa Delta, vice pres-
ident; Louise Crandall, Mosher-Jor-
dan, secretary; and Martin Cavan-
augh, Phi Kappa Walter .acel).
Sigma Nu, Paul Pryor, Alpha Kappa
Lambda, and Bernard Good, Phi Sig-
ma Delta as J-Hop representatives."
An attempt was made yesterday by
the Washtenaw party to call another
vote on the grounds that the one held
Monday night was not accurate. The
petition was denied by the president
of the dormitory, however, and
Mosher-Jordan will support the State
Street ticket, unless last minute
changes are made today.
More than 25 independent men
gathered at the Union at 7:30 p. m.
yesterday to pledge their support to
the Washtenaw party. Charles Ber-
nard, Washtenaw candidate for pres-
ident, was present and claimed that
the independent vote was behind
him. Gilbert Bursley, chairman of
the State Street party, said that a
number of independent votes had al-
ready been pledged to the State
Street party.
State Street claimed the pledge
support of Mosher-Jordan, Betsy
Barbour, Helen Newberry and Mar-
tha Cook late last night, but political
leaders of the Washtenaw party
claimed to have forced a split in the
Mosher-Jordan vote.
To Use Aeroplane
The State Street party is cam-
paigning in real political style and
will have an aeroplane fly over the
ampus at noon today.
"A full hearted endorsement of
Charles Bernard was made at the
Washtenaw caucus tonight," Irving
Pearistone told The Daily reporter
ast night. "The independents on the
campus are well organized," he said,
"and are going to support their can-
didate. The party platform has been
accepted by four domitories and the
party will win."
Bursley said last night that "with
all the dormitories, all the sororities,
with the exception of Kappa Delta,
and more fraternities than ever be-
fore, State Street is confident of in-
creasing its victory margin of last
year from 145 to 200."
500 Students Use Union
Absentee Voting Service
More than 500 applied for absen-
tee voting information at the bureau
in the Union, John W. Lederle, '33,
Union president reported last night.

It is now too late to have anything
more done than having the ballots
notarized, Lederle said, consequently
the bureau has been discontinued.
There is, however, a notary public
in the office of Paul Buckley, man-

Motor Cars And Trolleys
Overturned, Crowds Try
To Terrorize Officials
LONDON, Nov. 1. - UP)- Sharp
fighting between police and unem-
ployed sympathizers broke out in Vic-
toria Embankment and at Charing
Cross tonight, after police had dis-
persed a huge throng which was
marching on the Houses of Parlia-
ment.
Rioters attempted to overturn mo-
tor cars on the Embankment. They
rushed street cars and removed their
signboards for use as clubs. Police
repeatedly charged with their batons
into the crowds. At the Cenotaph,
Britain's greatest war memorial,
wreaths were trampled.
Fireworks Discharged
Meanwhile, other police were busy
-with crowds on Westminster Bridge.
The demonstrators in that neighbor-
hood were not so complacent as their
colleagues, and fireworks were dis-
charged, apparently for the purpose
of frightening horses of the mounted
police. Several arrests were made.
These disorders occurred after po-
lice had arrested Walter Hannington,
leader of the hunger marchers.
Fight as They Retreat,
Although deprived of their leader,
one crowd, forced slowly down
Whitehall by mounted and foot po-
lice, stiffened their resistance at Tra-
falgar Square, and police batolps be-
gan to swing.

Plans M a s s Meeting On
Thursday To Consider
All Possibilities
New plans for obtaining a univer-

mulated at a mass meeting at 6 p. m.
at the Union. This movement is be-
ing organized by the National Stu-
dent League, University of Michigan
chapter ,according to Edward Chey-
fitz, '34, chairman of the committee
in charge.'1.
All students and student organiza-
tions are invited to attend the con-
ference which will discuss arrange-
ments for - the petitioning of the
Board of Regents. An extensive cam-
paign will be conducted in an effort
to obtain at least 5,000 student sig-
natures.
President Ruthven, upon being in-
terviewed on the prospects of the es-
tablishment of such an enterprise,
stated that he thought the Board of
Regents would not allow it. He said
that in previous petitions, of a simi-
lar nature the Board has expressed
itself opposed to university-controlled
enterprises.
In rebuttal the studentsrmaintain-
ed that the university is already comn-
mercialized because of its operation
of a student chemistry store on . a
non-profit basis.

Mr. Tibbett, who first distinguish-'
ed himself in "Falstaff" at the New
York Metropolitan Opera House sev-
eral years ago, has prepared a spe-
cial song program, which includes
several pieces of distinctly modern
music.
The baritone arrived yesterday af-
ternoon, and is staying at the Union.
Because of the popular interest in
his voice, aroused to a great extent
by his motion picture and radio sing-
ing, a capacity crowd is expected to-
night, said Pres. Charles A. Sink of
the music school.
Assisted by Stewart Wille, accom-
panist, Mr. Tibbett will present the'
following song program:
"Care, Go Thou Away from Me"
(Old Scotch song), arranged by Mar-
garet Pierrepont; Arne-Endicott,
"Air" (comus); S. Donaudy, "Vaghis-
sima Sembianza" "(Fleeting Vi-
sion)"; Emile Vuillermoz, "Jardin
d'Amour (Garden of Love)"; Gustave
Ferrari, "Le Miroir ("The Mirror)";
Carl Loewe, "Maidens Are Like the
Wind"; Joseph Marx, "If Love Hath
Entered Thy Heart."
Mr. Wille, accompanist, will play
two piano selections: Debussy, "La
Terrasses des Audiences du Clair de
Lune"; and Dohnanyi, "Rhapsody
Opus II, Number 3."
