port my country in any war." Nine
hundred and eleven students put a
"no" after this.
"I will support my country only in
case my country is invaded" received
the approval of 1,421 votes. No defi-
nition of what was meant by "inva-
sion" - whether, for instance, the
sinking of an American ship with
American citizens dying as a result is
"invasion" - was not mentioned, and
this question produced a number of
difficulties because of its vagueness.
One thousand one hundred and
ninety-eight students said they would
support their country in any war.
Seven hundred and ninety-six
checked the "no" after this state-
ment.
Physical Education Vote Close
The closest vote of the entire elec-
tion occurred in that perennially de-
batable subject, compulsory physical
education. Both men's and women's
compulsory physical education was
disfavored, but in each case the vote
was extremely close. There were 1,-
423 favoring compulory masculine
education and 1,515 against it.
Equally close, 1,367 voters favored
physical education of a compulsory
nature for women while 1,421 were
opposed."A most interesting element
in this vote was the fact that fresh-
men and sophomores were opposed,
while juniors and seniors, who had
had to take physical education, be-
lievedthat it should be continued.
University jurisdiction over the
residences of undergraduate men stu-
dents should be abolished, the voters
decided in a close count, but supervi-
sion of the residences of undergradu-
ate women students should contin-
ue, two out of every three voters said.
The University should have no jur-
isdiction over residences of students
with degrees, 2,380 said while 469
thought some supervision should be
exercised. One thousand seven hun-
dred and sixty-seven opposed juris-
diction over undergraduate men's
residences while 1,560 favored it. The
question on supervision of undergrad-
uate women's residences brought a
vote of 2,183 "yes" and 752 "no."
Want Later Women's Hours
Women's hours as they are now
met with general dissatisfaction, 1,-
968 opposing them with 811 in favor.
Most of those opposed to the present
arrangement were for some plan of
modification, but 920 said they fa-
vored the complete abolition of hours
for women students.
Womenshould be allowedyto stay
out to 11:30. p. . Sundays, 1,542
persons decided, 528 recording their
opposition to this proposal. Even
more" emphatic was the approval ac-
corded the proposition that women
be permitted to stay out to 1:30 a.
m. both Fridays and Saturdays. The
vote here was more than three to
one, 1,719 voting affirmatively and
425 negatively.
R.O.T.C. Favored
Eight hundred and eighty persons
were of the opinion that the Uni-
versity R.O.T.C. should be abolished,
but an overwhelming majority saw
no objection to the present plan of
voluntary participation in the unit.
Consequently, the vote against abo-
lition was 2,018.
The highest vote in the entire elec-
tion occurred with regard to the serv-

Lombardo Gets
Orchestra Vote
In Campus Poll
Second Choice Goes To
Hal Kemp; Many Other
Bands Listed
Guy Lombardo and his Royal Can-
adians are going to have a busy sea-
son if voters in the recent all-campus
poll have anything to say about it.
In fact if they have their way he will
be playing at all class dances this
year.
His dreamy, smooth rhythms which!
are heard over the radio must have
had quite an effect on Michigan
men and women. Exactly 523 voters
elected Guy and his band as their
first choice for their class dance this
season. A total of 316 men and 207
women wrote his name on the ballot
opposite question number 24.
The orchestra of the well-known
Guy not only received the largest
number of total votes from the sev-
eral colleges but he also received the
greatest number in each of the
classes individually. Juniors were
most enthusiastic in their acclaim,
indicating that it is not impossible'
for his orchestra to be selected to
play for the 1935 J-Hop, which will
be held in February.
Second choice of all voters was Hal
Kemp's orchestra, receiving a total of
143 votes. Other bands to get a large
number of votes were Isham Jones,
Casa Loma, Jan Garber, Fred War-
ing's Pennsylvanians, Wayne King,
George Olsen, and Eddie Duchin. Ben
Bernie, who played at last year's J-
Hop, received only 56 votes and Rudy
Vallee tallied but 12.
Local orchestras named on the bal-
lots, in the order of votes received,
were Max Gail, the Union Band, Al
Cowan, and Chubb's orchestra.
Practically every leading band in
the country received some votes,
many of them apparently facetiously
named by the students. Some senior
suggested the United States Naval
Band for the Senior Ball and one
junior recommended that the Chicago
Symphony Orchestra play at the J-
Hop.
Lieut. Settle Lands In 6
Delaware Bay Marshes
BRIDGETON, N. J., Nov. 21-41P)7-
The achievement of an American
stratosphere record had no more
thrils to it than the safe landing of
Lieut. Commander T. G. W. Settle
and Maj. C. L. Fordney, his co-pilot,
who squashed to earth in the tidal
marshes on the edge of Delaware
Bay.
After their contact with the earth
and while much of south Jersey
searched woods and fields they slept
peacefully wrapped in the folds of
the great gas bag that had carried
them to new heights.
They came down.in total darkness,
^ight miles southwest of Bridgetown
and perilously close to the wide ex-
panse of Delaware Bay at 5:50 p. m.
yesterday only to find themselves
marooned by the tidal water.

Price Asked By Students Would
End First Class Movies; Hoag

Say

'Bunk!'

The fair theatre price as decided
by University students in the cam-
pus poll would make the presenta-
tion of first run pictures an impos-
sibility, and might necessitate the
complete closing of the theatres, Jer-
ry Hoag, manager of local Butter-
field theatres, said last night.
Mr. Hoag said the theatres were
now operating at the lowest possible
price which is consistent with the
presentation of good pictures and a
reasonable profit for the entrepren-
eurs. The present price is 40 cents at
night and 30 cents in the afternoon.
Students indicated that they be-
lieved a price of 25 cents would be
fair. Almost twice as many voters
considered this a more reasonable
price than any other sum. Next to
25 cents, which received 1,155 votes,
came 30 cents, receiving 604 votes.
A large number, 374, considered 35
cents (the present average afternoon
and night prices) as fair. Support-
ing the present night prices were

Open House At
Union Attracts
Large Crowds,
The ballroom, bowling alleys, bil-
liard room, and swimming pool were
packed to capacity as a crowd esti-
mated at close to 3,000 students, both'
men and women, thronged the Union
last night for the third annual Open
House.
Dancing was the most popular ac-
tivity. The Michigan Union Band
played for a crowd of dancers that
overflowed the ballroom and made it
necessary to throw open the Terrace.
Organized competition was spon-
sored in bowling, while there were ex-
hibitions of ping pong and swim-
ming, and the billiards and pool
tables were opened to the students at
reduced prices.
A team of women bowlers defeated
a picked quartet of men in two out
of three games by a margin of 121
points. Melvin Silverman and Robert
Bonney, finalists in the campus ping
pong tourney, played an exhibition
match. Matt Mann's Varsity swim-
ming squad competed in a series of
races and demonstrated strokes.
ing of beer east of Division Street.
There never was any real doubt
about the outcome on this question,
and the vote proved to be as empha-
tic as everyone thought it would be,
the count showing that beer's sale
in the campus area was favored by a
more than four to one majority. Two
thousand seven hundred and twenty-
five voted "yes" and 639 "no."
The honor system was approved in
a close vote, 1,623 to 1,382.

Favor Driving For
Holders Of Degrees
The all-campus balloting, which
conclusively indicated that Univer-
sity students are not in favor of en-
tirely abolishing the existing ban on
the use of automobiles, likewise dem-
onstrated that the students are in
favor of only one type of modifica-
tion -that which would permit stu-'
dents with degrees to drive cars.
Even the seniors of the several col-
leges were opposed to a modification
which would permit fourth-year stu-
dents to drive and very few were in
favor of issuing permits on the basis
of scholastic achievement.
Students in all of the colleges rep-
resented voted against the continu-
ance of the ban as it now exists, but
they likewise agreed on the type of
change preferred.
Klein At Last

More life in Michigan men is the
desire of senior women, if you want
to interpret the compulsory physical
education vote among senior women
in that manner - and there really
isn't any reason why you shouldn't.
Women believe the men should
take physical education, thus de-
veloping that masculine chest, thosel
forceful biceps, and that generally'
robust air. Also, women are quite
certain that they themselves should
take compulory physical education.
As for the senior men, they (or at
least the majority of them) are
equally positive that all the required
masculine physique was developed
by the time they entered college, and
if it wasn't it's too late to be both-
ered with.
Opinions Differ On
Residence Question
Men students in the literary college
voted against any University super-
vision of men's residences - which
would mean that men could live in
apartment houses if they wanted to
- but women students in the college
I did not take kindly to the idea of
complete masculine freedom.
Four hundred and ninety-seven
women were opposed to no University
supervision of men's residences while
367 favored the plan. Two hundred
and seventy men were in favor of the
idea and 197 men were convinced
they should be supervised.,
Both men and women were certain
that women should live in residences
under University control. Five hun-
dred and forty women and 363 men
believed such supervision was desir-
able, while 288 women would like to
try it on their own, and 109 men
want to see them do it.

only 114, and this number was three'
smaller than those who wanted tor
see the price reduced to 15 cents -
the lowest amount mentioned on the
ballot.
Nine students believed, if the votes
mean anything, that the prices were
too low. Three wanted to see them
raised to 45 cents and six were will-
ing to pay, and thought they ought
to, 50 cents. One hundred studentsa
thought 20 cents a fair price.
The poll indicated that 123 stu-
dents considered the present average
price of 35 too low, while an over-
whelming number, 1,976, were con-
vinced that the present average price
was too high.
Women Vote For Lower
Dance Price Than Men
Apparently women have their es-
corts' purse strings in mind when
they go out on a date, to an even
greater extent than the escorts as a
matter of fact. At least the women,
when asked to name on the all-cam-
pus ballot what they considered a
fair price to be charged for their
class dances this year, voted in favor
of lower charges than did the men.
A large number of men, 306, were
in favor of paying $5 for tickets to
class dances whereas 173 women
thought that $2.50 was a sufficiently
large price to be paid for one eve-
ning's entertainment.
In fact all of the women voted for
lower prices than did the men, 133
of the co-eds favoring a price of $2.
On figures above $5, however, the
men were not so insistent, only 10
of them suggesting that $10 be
charged for tickets to the functions.
The median figure named by the
total voters was approximately $2.50,
indicating that all of the students
believe that the prices charged in
the past for class functions have
been too high.
A large number of juniors voted on
this question in the balloting, as well
as on the issue relating to orchestras
to be selected for this year's dances,
showing that the J-Hop is apparent-
ly of greater interest to the juniors
than are the other class functions to
the members of the respective classes.
Ask {Class Dues Payment
By Juniors And Seniors
Announcement was made last
night by Harry Hattenbach, class
treasurer, that senior literary stu-
dents may pay their class dues from
9 a. m. to noon today and tomor-
row in the lobby of Angell Hall or to
any member of the dues collecting
committee. Co-operation of seniors
in prompt payment was requested.
At the same time, Cy Rosenberg,
chairman of the junior literary class
finance committee, announced that
dues of that class would be reduced
from $1 to 50 cents. Payment may
be made in Angell Hall on Thursdray
from 8 a. m. to 5 p. m.

Purchased By
Chicag~o Cubs
CHICAGO, Nov. 21 - (P) - After
almost four years of persistent try-
ing, the Chicago Cubs today finally
purchased Charles "Chuck" Klein,
1933 National League batting cham-
pion and one of the greatest left-
handed hitters in baseball, from the
Philadelphia Nationals.
Two veteran utility infielders-
Mark Koenig and Harvey Hendrick
-and Theodore Kleinhans, a south-
paw pitcher recently purchased from
Atlanta, together with a bundle of
cash, estimated at $65,000, will be
given to the Phillies by the Cubs for
the batting star around whom the
Cubs will build their attack and bid
for the National League champion-
ship next season.
A c t i n g President William M.
Walker, of the Cubs, announced to-
day the long-sought deal had at last
been consummated.
Probably no ball club pursued any
player more insistently than the Cubs
did Klein, who in six seasons with
the Phillies compiled the lifetime ma-
jor league batting average of .359 and
won the 1933 National League bat-
ting crown with a mark of .368, or
23 points higher than his closest
rival.
