PROHIBITION,
IS REPEALED
SALT LAKE CITY, Utah, Nov.
7 - (MP - John F. Bowman, head
of the coalition of Prohibition
forces in Utah, at midnight con-
ceded that Utah had joined the
ranks of repeal states.
(Utah is the 36th wet state,
and so repeals prohibition).
(By Associated Press)
Ohio and Pennsylvania stepped
firmly into the wet ranks last night
in a sweep of ballots that piled up
a heavy repeal lead in Utah and left
North and South Carolina clinging
to the Prohibition standard.
Retention of the margin of the
wets held in Utah would make that
state the 36th to vote to remove the
Eighteenth Amendment from the
Constitution.
Ohio heaped up a 60,000 majority
for repeal and in Pennsylvania the
margin was 6-to-1.
North Carolina decisively iejected
the repeal amendment, the voters
placing the state on record as the
first in the Union to break away from
the wet march. The dry ration was
better than 2-to-1. In South Carolina,
the issue was more closely contested,
but repeal forces conceded victor.y to,
Prohibitionists on the face of a 2,-
000-vote lead with the missing pre-
cincts confined principally to dry
rural sections.
Kentucky, the sixth state to vote
during the day, will count its ballots

President Rutlhven Makes
A Farewell Address For
University Friends
Prof. Joseph R. Hayden officially
became vice-governor of the Philip-
pine Islands at noon yesterday. He
took the oath of office before a body
of more than 100 persons, composed
of members of his immediate family,
high University officials, and other
friends and well-wishers.
George Burke, prominent Demo-
crat, University attorney, and close
friend of Professor Hayden, admin-
istered the oath.
Horatio J. Abbott, internal reve-
nue collector for Michigan and a
Democratic national committeeman,
was the first to offer his congratu-
lations after the ceremony. Among
those who followed him were Presi-
dent Alexander G. Ruthven, Dr. Jo-
seph B. Steere, George Murphy,
brother of the Governor-General of
the Islands, and Prof. Jesse S. Reeves,
chairman of the political science de-
partment.
Hayden Gives Parting Talk
Other members of the department
in which Professor Hayden has been
so prominent were present in a body
to offer congratulations to their col-
league. I
"It is my conviction that I cannot
serve my country well in this office
without also serving the people of
the Philippines," Dr. Hayden said in
his parting address. He stated that
he was most conscious of the solemn
obligation laid upon him by the oath
of office and that he intends to dis-
charge this obligation to the United
States and to the Islands to the full
limit of his strength and ability.
"I am sustained by a deep con-
sciousness of the confidence that has
been reposed in me by the President
of the United States and that is
shared by the Governor-General of
the Philippine Islands," he contin-
ued. "It compels a loyalty that is
more than official."
Professor Hayden mentioned the
encouragement that he has received
from the friendly expressions of con-
fidence and esteem on the part of
the constituted leaders of the Islands.

projects.

Issuing a last call for sopho-

last night announced that second-

tion for appointments next year
must attend a meeting of the
sophomore staff at 3:30 p. m.
Thursday in the Gargoyle office.
It was stressed that there are
only three months left before the
new semester, and in order to be
in line for a promotion the try-
outs must have at least that much
experience.

He told of the deep gratification
that he feels at being able to help
make stronger the long and honora-
ble connection existing between the
University and the Islands, paying
tribute to Dr. Steere for his part in
starting the relations, and calling it
a privilege to become associated with
Governor - General Frank Murphy
and the other "loyal sons and daugh-
ters of Michigan in the Philippines
who are today maintaining the high
character of this traditional bond."
Following Professor Hayden, Presi-
dent Ruthven made a farewell speech
on behalf of the University, in which
he stated that times like the present
give others here a real appreciation
of the members of the staffs.
"Professor Hayden is a University
man in the broad sense of the term,"
he continued. "His going will leave
a gap in the ranks that cannot be
filled. He is the type of man who
has made the prestige of Michigan."

Shocking conditions of squalor and
degeneration were revealed in their
lowest order to 30 University students
who made a trip to Chicago last
week-end to study practical sociolog-
ical problems under the direction of
Dr. Frank Beck, Chicago sociologist.
On the extensive study of various
social conditions the group visited a
flop house, an opium and gambling
dive, the "Tong" center of Chicago,
a garret art studio, the Italian
Ghetto, a Russian Communist center,
Maxwell Street, a market center, Bug
House Square, the "show-up" and
broadcasting rooms of the Chicago

visit," Anderson said, "a ragged hobo
who held degrees from several col-
leges and was a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Vienna delivered an ad-
dress on the Depression."
A combination opium den and
drinking "dive" was visited. "Here,"
said Anderson, "men were running
about the room and yelling as though
crazy. Later we found that a poor
grade of intoxicating alcohol could
be bought there for 15 cents a pint.
On the second floor where the dope
addicts were to be found, men were
strewn about the floor so thickly that
we had to step over them."
Sunday the group visited the an-
arhist's home and Dr. Beekased
