College Dailies'
Straw Vote Gives
Hoover Big Lead
College Papers' Results
Tabulated By Princeton
Daily In Straw Vote
29 Favor Hoover
Roosevelt Second, Polling
18,212; Thomas Runs
Third With 10,470
A tabulation of straw polls con-
ducted in various colleges throughout
the country by the Daily Princeton-
ian, student publication of Princeton
University, shows President Hoover
in the lead by a substantial margin.
Governor Roosevelt second, and Nor-
man Thomas running a much better
than average third.
The total vote is Hoover, 29,289,
Roosevelt, 18,212, and Thomas, 10,-
470. Hoover won in 29 colleges,
Roosevelt in 11, and Thomas in five
Of the 18 eastern colleges in the poll
Hoover was ahead in 16, running up
large leads in the older and more
conservative institutions. Two east-
ern colleges, Columbia University and
New York University, both in New
York City, lived up to their reputa-
tion for liberalism by favoring Thom-
as. Roosevelt was second at N. Y. U.
and Hoover was second at Columbia.
Midwest Picks Hoover
In the mid-west Hoover was again
favored, winning in eight colleges
while Thomas was ahead in one. The
far west went for Hoover by five to
two, St. Louis University and Colo-
rado University supporting Thomas.
The 11 colleges favoring Roosevelt
were all situated in the south, that
section of the country reaffirming its
traditional allegiance to the Demo-
cratic Party.
Three eastern women's colleges,
Wellesley, Smith, and Vassar were
polled, "and they also leaned toward
the President. Norman Thomas had
a fair lead over Governor Roosevelt
at these institutions. The vote was
Hoover, 1,982, Thomas, 560; and
Roosevelt, 329.
Anti-Hoover Vote Big
While at first glance the poll would
seem to illustrate that American col-
lege students compose one of the most
conservative groups in the country,
further study indicates that although
Roosevelt is greatly outdistanced by
the President the total anti-Hoover
vote is considerable.
This "protest" vote, instead .of go-
ing to the major party out of power,
which has always been the case, is
split between the Democratic and
Soialist candidates. Roosevelt has
18,212 and Thomas 10,470. The total
anti-administration vote is thus 28,-
682, only 607 behind Hoover's 29,289.
The vote in the leading colleges
is as follows:

Advocates Use Of

For Child's Study


W. R. Humphreys, professor of
English and assistant dean of the;
literary college, spoke to parents yes-
terday afternoon on the subject "The
Bible as Literature for Children." His
lecture was the first of a series of
six weekly talks which have been ar-'
ranged on the child's approach to re-
Professor Humphreys advocated
the use of actual Bible passages for
children without the aid of modern
texts and interpretations. For this
purpose he advised the King James
version as being far superior in lit-
erary merit and poetic quality. The
child should be exposed to the Bible
and allowed to form an appreciation
of its beauty, even though its thought
may be beyond his reach.-
The lectures are scheduled for 3
p. m. on succeeding Wednesdays and
are open to all those interested in
how to provide a religious back-
ground for their children. Other
speakers have. been secured to ap-
proach the subject from the particular
viewpoint of the speaker. Next Wed-

Basil D. Edwards, head of the Uni-

Colonel Anderson is a staff officer
in charge of R. O. T. C. affairs in
this corps area and the inspection is
one that is made annually for the
purpose of having accurate informa-

tion of the various corps under the

complete satisfaction with the ad-

is being tried by Smith College of.

junior selection plan, and under its
provisions a limited number of ap-
plicants with exceptionally good
marks are chosen by the Smith Col-

junior year in secondary school to

If they pass they do not need to
take examinations at the end of their
senior year, provided they carry a
normal senior program and maintain
the high standard of their work dur-
ing that year. If the record for the
senior year is not satisfactory, the
candidates have the privilege of
again taking college board examina-
tions as is customary under the reg-
ular plan of admissions.
In this first year of the plan's
operation there were 49 candidates
for admission, the Times said. Forty-
three were successful.

World Recovery Readily1
Financed Once UnderI
Way, Say Leaders
NEW YORK, Nov. 2.-- AA) --Thez
recent improvement in the financial
position of American banks, which
has been widely commented on in2
current bank reviews, including that
at the New York Federal Reserve
bank, is being hailed by businessk
leaders as an indication that worldt
recovery can be readily financed,i
once it gets well under way.3
The unexpectedly good results of
foreign government refunding plans,
whereby their maturing bonds have3
been replaced by obligations bearing
lower interest coupons, have been re-,
garded as proof that the financial
machinery of Great Britain and
France has been well lubricated. And;
on this side of the Atlantic, there
have been notable gains recorded in
the past several months toward credit
This expansion, which has been
accompanied by a gain of nearly $1,-
000,000,000 in the past half year in
deposits of leading New York banks,
although as yet this has not extend-
ed in more than nominal degree to
-banks outside New York, has been
largely the result of two wholesome
forces at work.
One has been the return of gold to
this country, after its flight earlier in
the year, and the other has been the
return of hoarded money, which with
reviving confidence has gradually
been released from the tin boxes of
hoarders and allowed to work back
I to the banks.
Accompanying this measurable
gain has been a sharp falling off in
the number of bank suspensions. In
January there were 342 bank clos-
ings. In June, when the worldwide
run on American gold was nearing an
end, there were 151. In July, it fell
to 132, in August to 85 and in Sep-
tember and October to 65 each, ac-
cording to a tabulation presented in
the monthly survey of National City
With October figures of bank sus-
pensions falling to one of the smal-
est monthly totals for the year to
date, a precedent of two years stand-
ing was smashed. In both 1930 and
1931, the peak of ourbbank troubles
was witnessed in October, but this
year the month was one of compara-
tive calm.

To Sing "Simon Boccanegra"
An honor which has been conferred
on no one since the days of Caruso
will be Lawrence Tibbett's when he
goes to New York to sing the lead in
"Simon Boccanegra," termed a bari-

opera is designed particularly for a
soprano," Mr. Tibbett continued.
"'Aida' and 'Tosca' are examples.
But 'Simon Boccanegra' is a pecu-
liarly marvelous opportunity for me
in that it is almost made to order for
my voice."
When asked what he thought
about Michigan's football prospects
(Mr. Tibbett is an enthusiastic fan)
he warned that "they shouldn't for-
get Southern California.'
"As for politics," Mr. Tibbett con-
