Speaking to the Republicans-for-
Roosevelt League in the Metropolitan
Opera House, the Democratic presi-
dential candidate described these as
the essentials of a philosophy of gov-
ernment and contrasted his own
ideas with those he said were held
by President Hoover.
"Hoover's A Campaign of Fear"
Mr. Roosevelt renewed his asser-
tion that the President was conduct-
ing a campaign of fear and said that
"no doubt" he was seeking to extend
that campaign a few nights ago when
he "made the statement that if the
policies, he had so valiantly develop-
ed be not continued the grass would
grow on the streets of the cities.'"
"Well." the New York governor
.added, "the grass has little chance
to grow in the streets of our cities
now. It would be trampled into the
ground by the men who wander these
streets in search of employment."
Mr. Roosevelt said that to con-
dense the sum of all the arguments
the President has made for his re-
election "into two sentences is not
"He asks for a vote of confidence
because he says that but for him the
situation would have been worse,"
the governor continued. "He asks the
nation to wait and hope for some
miracle or invention to make things
"My political philosophy and my
chart of action for the country's fu-
ture differs widely from those of
President Hoover. This program in-
trusted to me is essentially a national
"An Unselfish Program"
"Such a program permits of no
yielding to sectional or immediate
selfiuslh special interests such as those
represented by the clients and back-
ers of Mr. Grundy.,'
Referring to the American system
of government which he said Mr.
Hoover had mentioned in his recent
New York speech, Governor Roose-
velt said "The American government
itself was founded on the principle
that many men from many states
with many economic views and many
economic interests might through the
medium of a national government;
build for national harmony, national
unity and interdependent well-being."

Voters Scheduled
To Receive Longer
Ballots Than Usual
LANSING. Nov. 3. _._ i) Voters
Nov. 8 will look over the largest bal-
lot in the history of the state. Two
sheets of paper each almost the size
of a newspaper page will he handed
each voter on entering the polling
booth, the department of state an-
nounced today.
Candidates of 10 parties will have
their names on the ballot. Twy are
the Republ ican, Dermocra t, Socialist,
Prohibition, America, Socialist ..a-
bor, Communist, Proletarian, Liberty
and Farmer Labor, and will appear
on the ballot in this order.
The Republican and Democratic
parties are the only ones with com-
plete tickets. The American party has
no candidates except in Wayne
county. Two parties-the American
and Proletarian-haven't any Pres-
idential or vice presidential candi-
The Communist, Proletarian, Lib-
erty and American groups appear on
the Michigan ballot for the first time.
The eight issues on the general
election ballot will take up 45 inches
of space. Some counties have print-
ed the oleo referendum ballot in two
columns to make the huge sheet
easier to handle, the first time
this has been done in the history
of the state.
Working Cass
Conditions Bad,
Briton States
Former Commons Member
Calls Present Supply
And Demand Paradox
"In order to retain hold of ex-
port markets of the world, through
intense competition, working-class
conditions have become worse and
worse," said A. Fenner Brockway,
former member of the British House
of Commons, in a talk at the latiral
Science Auditorium last night.
"Mountains of goods and machines
of miraculous capacity and beside
them millions of people in want is
the situation today," Mr. Brockway
pointed out. "You must give those
people'purchasing power to buy those
goods, before you can ever improve
ecnomic conditions,' 'he said.
Mr. Brockway suggested a National
Economic Council to take the whole
economic life of his country, a coun-
cil composed of trained men, who will
operate a plan which will benefit the
community as a whole.
The speaker drew an analogy be-
tween the present struggle against
economic conditions in England and
the struggle against political condi-
tions there in the first part of the
nineteenth century and voiced the
opinion that mass arising would se-
cure relief, as it did then.
Partner' Ballot
I Method Of
Protesting Vote
Political Group Arranges
Co-operation Of Voters,
At Polls Tuesday
A highly novel and interesting plan
for the express benefit of Democratic
and Republican voters who wish to

cast a "protest" ballot Nov. 8 has
been created here by the League for
Independent Political Action, it was
announced yesterday.
Under the proposed plan, Repub-
licans who wish to vote the Socialist
ticket without "giving" a vote to the
Democrats, may notify the Rev.
Howard R. Chapman, the league's
representative, of their wish. The
Reverend Chapman will pair off the
Republican with a Democrat who
likewise wishes to vote Socialist, and
the two will go to the polls together
to vote for Norman Thomas. The re-
sult will be two Socialist, or "protest"
votes, while neither the Republicans
or Democrats have gained by the ac-
tion of either of the individuals con-
cerned. Theirs is a net loss of one
vote each.
John Dewey, chairman of the
league, said that the "vote exchange"
is a result of the petition of many
voters who want to make the "pro-
test" without letting the traditional

Leaders Of
i Science Will
Gather Here
Program For Convention
Of National Academy Of
Science Is Announced
Meetings Are Open
To General Public
Membership In Academy
Is Termed High Honor.;
250 Members Are Listed
The program of the annual fall
convention of the National Academy
of Sciences, which will be held here
November 14, 15, and 16, was an-
nounced yesterday by Dr. F. G. Novy,
chairman of the executive commit-
tee of the medical school.
Dr. Novy pointed out that the Na-
tional Academy is the foremost asso-
ciation of its kind in the United
States, and declared that the Univer-
sity will be highly honored by the
convention here this year.
To Hold Five Sessions
The convention, according to the
announcement, will hold five scien-
tific sessions in Lydia Mendelssohn
theatre, to which the public is in-
vited. Outstanding among the lec-
tures will be that delivered Monday
evening on "A Geographic Study of
Cosmic Rays" by Arthur Holly
Compton, of the University of Chi-
cago, who has been the recipient of
the Nobel Prize.
Membership in the Academy num-
bers about 250 and is divided into 11
sections. These sections represent the
following scientific fields: Mathema-
tics, Astronomy, Physics, Engineering,
Chemistry, Geology and Paleontol-
ogy,' Botany, Zoology and Anatomy,
Physiology and Biochemistry, Pathol-
ogy, and Anthopology and Psychol-
First Time Here
The Academy meets twice annual-
ly. Every April it convenes in Wash-
ington, D. C., and every fall it meets
at some University. Some of the
schools at which it has met in recent
years are Yale, Princeton, and the
Universities of California, Wisconsin,
and Illinois. The convention here
next week will be the first that it
has held in Ann Arbor.
The Academy was founded by Act
of Congress in 1863. Joseph. Henry,
who was at that time Secretary of
the Smithsonian Institute and the
nation's foremost physicist and also
a close friend of President Lincoln,
was instrumental, with the Presi-;
dent, in causing Congress to pass the
bill creating the organization.
The present president of the Acad-
emy, William Wallace Campbell,
graduated from the University of
Michigan in 1887. He is the Emeritus
President of the University of Cali-
forma and the Emeritus Director of
the Lick Observatory.
Four Michigan Members
Scientists are elected to member-
ship in the Academy nation by a
highly complicated system of ballot-
ing and membership is generally held1
among scientists to be one of the:
highest honors that can be conferredE
in the United States. The University
of Michigan is represented in the
Academy by Professors Heber D.
Curtis, of the department of astron-
omy, and director of the Detroit Ob-
servatory; Walter B. Pillsbury, of the
psychology department; Moses Gom-
berg, of the chemistry department;l
and Frederick G. Novy, chairmani
of the executive committee of the

Tickets Split
As Engineer
Seniors Elect
(antrill Noses Out Others
By Small Margin; Junior
Nominee Is Dalsinier

Hint Republi


Senior engineers waged a' closely
contested battle in their class elec-
tions yesterday, which resulted in a
split of both party tickets. The mar-
gins by which the candidates won
were closer than in any other elec-
tion so far this year.
Cecil Cantrill will head the sen-
for engineers this year as a result of
having nosed out two other candi-
dates, Robert Hayes and Harold
Hessler, by a small margin. The
vote was 74, 69 and 62, respectively,
Earl Briggs ran a poor fourth, polling
only eight votes.
For the office of vice-presidency
Jerry Gruitch polled a total of 90
votes while his two opponents, E. J.
Carr and Harvey Bauss, received 80
and 43 respectively.
Richard F. Becker polled the high-
est number of votes during the day,
defeating his opponent, Emmerson
Reid, 128 to 84. Elgin 0. Marshall
also ran up a substantial lead when
he defeated Erwin Boyton and Ala-
stair Mitchell in a final vote of 113,
93 and 12.
Duane Erikson defeated Mathias
Matzek for the office of honor com-
mitteeman by a vote of 123 to 75, and
Harold Toro was elected engineering
councilman when he defeated James
Smith and James Creagan. The vote
for the three candidates respectively
was 115, 54 and 33.
Junior engineers are beginning
their campaign for the election to
be held at 10 a. m. in room 348 West

Campbell Says Lecturer

More Subjective
William Butler Yeats is tending
more and more to draw away from
the objective realism that is growing
in importance in the Irish theatre,
said Prof. O. J. Campbell of the Eng-
lish department in an interview yes-
Mr. Yeats, who will speak in Hill
Auditorium Nov. 10 under the aus-
pices of the Oratorical Association,
was a prime figure in the Irish Ren-
aissance of Literature at the time of
its origin about 1890, and has con-
tinued ever since in the midst of
Irish literary activity.
The modern exponents of Irish
drama, explained Professor Camp-
bell, have sought more and more to
portray the objective, common, every-
day incidents of human life. They
have lifted realism to a place of
prime importance in Irish letters. Mr.
Yeats, on the other hand, has be-
come more and more subjective, and
has attempted to establish a circle

which, he charged, had knowingly

the program.

Gilbreth "how much the Republicans

ver. Gilbreth explained to the mem-
bers of the crowd that Inglis had
cast several ballots illegally in a
practical joking attempt to prove that
he could evade the vigilance of Daily
and Union staff members posted to
conduct the poll. He declared that
Inglis had immediately informed him

Shortly after his arrival in the of-
fice, Gilbreth, in response to a threat
from Kuhne that the mob would for-
cibly prevent The Daily from going
to press, indicated a dead-line across
the editorial room and ordered mem-
bers of the mob to stay on their side.
They did.
Little organization was evident in
the conduct of the demonstration,
few besides Cohen and Kuhne being
sufficiently informed on the subject
to voice their demands coherently.
While the majority of those present
lolled about on benches and chairs,
occasionally crying, "Isn't this a stu-
dent newspaper?" the leaders hurled
threats and insults at members of
The Daily -staff.
Cohen Organized Mob
A member of the Michigan Social-
ist Club told The Daily that when
the members of the mob were organ-
ized in Natural Science Auditorium,
Cohen had promised them "that
there wouldn't be any Socialist Club
