Candidates On Eve Of

First Year Men To Vote
In Elections In One Of
Three Schools
As freshman campaigning entered
its final stages last night two more
parties, one each in the literary col-
lege and College of Engineering, an-
nounced candidates for the elections
to be held tomorrow afternoon.
bavid W. Murphy, Sigma Alpha
Epsilon, was nominated for president
by the Washtenaw-Coalition party.
For other offices they chose Jane
Fitzgerald, Mosher-Jordan and Kap-
pa Delta, vice-president; Doris N.
Wisner, Alpha Chi Omega, secretary;
and William Barndt, treasurer.
. The Consolidated-Engineer's party
also named candidates in the Engi-
neering college. They are as follows:
for president, Paul F. Kraus, inde-
pendent; for vice-president, Homer
M. Williams, Phi Kappa Tau; for sec-
retary, Ralph E. Smith, independent;
and for treasurer, William O. Lowell,

Would-Be Freshman Politicians Students To

Draw Battle Lines For Election

Added justification for the popularj
belief that freshmen are always green I
has been furnished by the political
antics of the present class of neo-
phytes in preparing for their first
election scheduled for tomorrow
Anxious to prove themselves real
campus politicians, many of the
freshmen, fraternity men and inde-
pendents alike, formed small coali-
tions among themselves almost as
soon as classes began, and formu-
lated plans for nominating certain
of their members on one of the three
tickets. Unfortunately, however, there
was some disagreement among these
factions, for they were not in accord
as to the respective merits of the va-
rious candidates.
The first shot of the actual cam-.
paign was fired by the State Street
group when, after a heated session
surpassed only by the Democratic
National Convention of 1924, they
placed their destinies in the hands
of a campaign manager.
However, many of their number
were not satisfied with the choice,
and, when the manager called his
first caucus, there was no response.
Somewhat startled by this turn of
events, he called one of his cohorts,
and was informed that the caucus
was meeting at another house. ' 4
was also given to understand that
because of the mutiny within the

ranks he was no longer the campaign
The next day, freshmen political
devotees learned of the selection of
an even bigger and better man to
lead the State Street forces. No
sooner had this been made known
than it was discovered that this new
boss was an engineer and, hence, in-
eligible to manage the literary school
Meanwhile, the Washtenaw Al
Smiths were not remaining complete-
ly inactive. They, too, had their dif-
ficulties in securing nominees, and it
is rumored that, in their efforts to
get the 'undivided support of Mosher-
Jordan Halls, they promised them the
chairmanship of the Frosh Frolic.
Washtenaw leaders could not be con-
tacted at a late hour last night to
substantiate this statement. However,
if it is true, it will revolutionize cam-
pus politics.
For the first time in many years,
the independents have actively en-
tered the field of campus politics.
They have not only entered a slate of
candidates in the election, but have
submitted a challenge to the caucus
leaders of the two opposing parties..
Their proposition calls for a dinner
at which the campaign officials of
the winning party will be feted by
the leaders of the two opposing fac-
tions. Neither the Washtenaw or
State group had responded to the
challenge yesterday.

Charity Drive Nets
$3,847 On First Day
First reports from 15 teans out of
a total of 59 in the Community Fund
Drive, indicated last night that $3,-
847.50 had been collected on the way
to the $60,262.16 goal.
The fund drive began Friday and
will continue until next Friday. Miss
Edith Owen, executive secretary of
the community fund, said that the
preliminary reports showed mostly
small donations. The large dona-
tions are not expected until later in
the week, she said.
Meanwhile the Ann Arbor Cham-
ber of Commerce has gone on record
in favor of the fund. In a recent
resolution it said, "The' Chamber of
Commerce of the city of Ann Arbor
heartily endorses the campaign for
funds inaugurated by the Communi-
ty Fund and urges the citizens to
give liberally to this worthy cause."
Rohrer Named
As Successor To
Hayden's Pos t
H. V. Rohrer, United States trade
commissioner at Manila and a lec-
turer at the University of the Philip-
pines, will succeed Prof. Joseph R.
Hayden of the political science de-
partment, who Friday was appointed
vice-governor of the Philippine
Islands, it was announced yesterday
by Prof. Jesse S. Reeves, chairman of
the political science department.
Since Professor Hayden has been
granted leave for but one year, Mr.
Rohrer's appointment is for the re-
mainder of the academic year only.
Before assuming his duties as trade
commissioner Mr. Rohrer was for
three years associated with the Bu-
reau of Foreign and Domestic Com-
merce, with offices in Washington.
He received his education at the Uni-
versity of Washington which awarded
him a bachelor of business adminis-
tration degree, and at George Wash-
ington University, where he obtained
a master of arts degree.
Mr. Rohrer will arrive in Ann Ar-
bor soon, Professor Reeves said.

Professor Hayden will leave Ann
Arbor this afternoon for Washington
where he will confer with Federal
officials. However, he stated that he

the islands sometime within the next
three weeks.
Dr. J. B. Steere, who is said to be
largely responsible for the excellent
relations now existing between the
University and the islands, will also
be present.

Committeemen Pay Dues
Before Christmas
A special committee, formed to as-

dues, was appointed yesterday by
John B. Deo, president of the senior

chairman, the committee includes
Lester Harrison, Mary McCarthy,
Katherine McHenry, Fred George,
James Gould, Robert Muzzy, and
Harry McGavran.
Following the policy of the class of
'33 the committee has adopted two
rules covering the payment of the
class dues. All persons appointed to
the various class committees must
pay their dues before Christmas. If
they are not paid by that time, al-
ternate committee members will be
appointed in their place, the an-
nouncement stated. Also, it was de-
cided that dues must be paid before
any invitations can be ordered.
. Dues this year, while the same as
last year, are considerably lower than
previous years, according to Deo. The
fee has been set at one dollar for

each student.~
Collection of the dues will start
next week, Hattenbach said. The time
and place of the collections will be
announced in the near future. It was
urged that seniors pay their dues now
in order to clear the deficit in the
class treasury at present.
Senior dues are used primarily for
alumni expenses, reunion expenses,

North Dakota Governor
Proposes Embargo On
Foreign Foodstuffs
IBy Associated Press k s
While farmers stood guard over
the roads leading to markets in
desultory picketing throughout the
Midwest Monday, the governors of
their states prepared to carry the
farm strike and the farmers' de-
mands to Congress. -
When that body meets in January,
Gov. Floyd B. Olson of Minnesota
said, Midwestern governorswoulde
launch a fight for governmental price
fixing and marketing control, the re-
quest the, governors unsuccessfully
put before President Roosevelt last
Meanwhile a movement for an em-
bargo on foreign foodstufffs drew a
new recruit in the person of Gov.
Charles W. Bryan of Nebraska. The
embargo was proposed by Gov. Wil-
liam Langer of North Dakota, who
claimed in a speech before Lincoln,
Neb., business men that 10 Midyest-.
ern governors would support it.
Storm zone of the farm strike was
Iowa, where with the farmers discon-
tent running high, officials of Sioux
City asked that troops be assigned
to the region. Guards were thrown
around the court house at LeMars,I
scene of an uprising last spring, andr
officials were probing the burning of
a bridge at James, in Plymouth
county, to see if there were a con-
nection with the strike. :
Rules Houses .
Exempt From
Any NRA Code
Campus fraternities and sororities
are entirely exempt from the NRA
restaurant code or any substitutions
therefore, it was ruled in an official
communication received here Sunday
by members of the Vanguard Club, a
recently-formed liberal organization
whose purpose is to study campus,
political, and economic problems.
This communication, signed by Al-
bert F. Koepcke, special agent of the
NRA in Detroit, and A. J. Barnaud,
district complianc director, is in the
nature of a clarification of an earlier
ruling which, because of an unfor-
tunately worded sentence, made it
appear that fraternities and sororities
were "clubs which served meals for
profit" and should comply with an
NRA restaurant code.
The communication reads as fol-
"It seems obvious from this inter-
pretation (the previous interpreta-
tion) that fraternity houses, which
are in reality the homes of students
while in college, which do not cater
to the general public, and which are
not operated for profit, do not com-
pete with restaurants.
"Their employees, therefore, would
seem to be classed as domestics, and

Kreisler A Soldier
And Biographer As

think of the "King of Violinists" as
an author, but publicity agents un-

the series of Choral Union concerts
Thursday night in Hill Auditorium,
have revealed the fact that he did
once publish a book, entitled,
strangely enough, "Four Weeks in the
As the title indicates, it is the
story of the author's personal ex-
periences in the war, as a captain
in the Austrian army. Complete with
illustrations, thevolume was pub-
lished by an American concern in
1915, at a time when war stories were
of interest to the reading public.
Kreisler entered active serviceat
the opening of the war in 1914 and
was retired a short time later after
he was wounded. His wife, to whom
the book was dedicated, served as a
nurse -in the war. The violinist re-
sumed his concert tours of the coun-
try at that time but cancelled all
plans in 1918, when the American
outlook toward all Austrians made it
impossible for him to appear upon
an American platform.1
