Candidates F o r J-Hop
A complete realignment of campus
political parties in the junior class
of the literary college was imminent
last night as officials of all factions
prepared to make their final cam-
paign drives for the chairmanship of
the J-Hop and the four class offices.
Rumors that the State Street party
had split over a candidate for the
J-Hop chairmanship and would not
present a State Street ticket in Wed-
nesday'stelection were corroborated
last night.
As a result the so-called progressive
fraternities of the old State Street
faction have organized the Frater-
nity-Independent party; while the re-
maining houses in that political group
are g7ot revealing their plans for the

chairmanship and class presidency,
Louise French, Kappa Kappa Gam-
ma, as the vice-presidential nominee,
Alison Tennant, Alpha Phi, as the
candidate for secretary, and John
Perkins, Beta Theta Pi, as the nom-
inee for treasurer, complete the list
of Fraternity-Independent candidates
for offices.
To Elect Committees
In addition to the chairmanship
and the traditional offices, members
of the class will vote for four J-Hop
committee positions. The Fraternity-
Independent party has nominated
Jean Seeley, Kappa Alpha Theta,
Robert Rogers, Psi Upsilon, and Joel
Newman, Phi Beta Delta, for these
posts. A second girl, who will represent
Helen Newberry dormitory, will be
named later for the fourth committee
The Washtenaw-Coalition ticket
will be headed by Russell Coward,
Theta Chi, for president, and Edward
Litchfield, Trigon, for J-Hop chair-
man. The other nominees for class
offices are Hazel Hanlon, Alpha Chi

Religious Opportunities Here

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the first of
a series of articles explaining the relig-
ious opportunities available for stu-
dents at the University. The series is
being run in conjunction with a con-
certed effort of religious organizations
on the campus to advise the student
body of their activities.eOther articles
in the series will appear each day this
"The concerted effort that is to
be made to present the advantages of
church affiliation to the students
merits the highest praise. It is sig-
nificant and timely.
"We are in a period when reserves
must be built up and supreme values
grasped by every citizen. Religion
is a superior value. The churches
are here to present the hopes, the as-
pirations, and convictions of the good
and the great who have developed
our civilization, and they are thus im-
portant educational agencies.
"By slow and steady effort our
social development goes on. Every
champion of truth, each discoverer of
a new fact, every leader who goes
wisely to a cross for right as against
wrong, moves mankind nearer to
those goals which religion selects.

Religious education is designed both
to promote spiritual growth and to
purify and freshen ideals.
"I wish the religious groups at
the University of Michigan and the
worship centers in Ann Arbor every
success. It may be proper for me to
suggest to those new to this campus
and community that alliance with the
fellowship in which you have thus far
been trained is good education. Neg-
lect of the sources of faith and the
facilities for religious education when
one takes up new duties or moves
to a strange community can scarcely
be defended as wisdom. While freed-
om is a virtue when widely used, we
are in a University to discipline our-
selves and the spiritual disicplines
are at once the most important and
the most difficult of all man's devel-
opmental processes.
"I hope the proposed statement of
objectives on the part of various
groups may increase the devotion
within each communion. The splen-
did good will which exists between
groups in itself should have spiritual

Sociology Students View
Underworld District, NBC
Broadcasting Studio
An interesting week-end was spent
in Chicago by students who made the
sociology trip, sponsored by the Stu-
dent Christian Association, accord-
ing to Russell F. Anderson, president.
There they saw the slum area, the
police department, the National
Broadcasting Company studios, the
Social Hygiene clinic, the University
of Chicago. campus, and the under-
world area on a tour conducted by
Dr. Frank O. Beck, practical sociolo-
Most of Saturday was devoted to a
visit to the slums and an inspection
of the police department. Here thy
saw the jails, the daily police line-up
room, the boys' courts, the women's
court, county court, and the psychia-
try laboratory
After this visit, Anderson com-'
mented: "Conditions that are present
in some of our jails today are slightly
better than those that existed in the,
Middle Ages. This trip gave everyone
an insight into the desperate need of
those who live in the slum area."
According to Anderson, the visit to
the studios of the National Broad-
casting Company was one of the most
interesting parts of the trip. The
group was shown some of the largest
individual studios in the country, and
told of the special construction neces-
sary for radio purposes.
On part of the tour the group was
accompanied by Edward Clasbie, head
of the Seven Arts Club of Chicago,
and Dr. Ben Wrightman, head of the
Anarchist Club in Chicago, whose as-
sistance was obtained through Dr.
Several famous spots in Chicago's
underworld were visited, and Dr. Beck
pointed out some of the alleged gang-
sters and their "hangouts."
During the visit to the Social Hy-
giene Clinic the group was addressed
by Dr. Rachelle S. Yarrows, director,
on some of the problems that face
her institution.
Sunday morning the members o.
the group attended chapel at the Uni-
versity of Chicago, where they heard
an address by Dr. Pip Van Duesen
of Columbia University.
Eleanor Peterson, '35, chairman of
the committee in charge of the trip,
announced a series of discussions on
the observations made, to be held at
Lane Hall. The date of the discus-
sion, which will be open to the public,
will be announced later.

Former Ann Arbor
To Discuss 'The
To Freedom'


Dr. Lloyd C. Douglas, formerly pas-
tor of the First Congregational
Church, will speak at 8:15 p.m. today
in Hill Auditorium on "The Flight
to Freedom."
Dr. Douglas held the pastorate here
for seven years, and his sermons al-
ways had capacity audiences. Mrs.
A. D. Tinker, student activities di-
rector of the Congregational Church,
which is sponsoring Dr. Douglas's ap-
appearance, said that crowds at his
sermons became so great that engi-
neers had to be called in to strengthen
the piers supporting the church.
Beside being a lecturer of note,
Dr. Douglas is a widely read author.
His "Magnificent Obsession" is still a
best seller three years after publica-
tion. "Forgive Us Our Trespasses,"
his second work, though not a best
seller, is a very popular book accord-
ing to his publishers. His third novel,
"Green Lights," will be published
sometime this winter.
Dr. Douglas is well known to col-
lege audiences throughout the coun-
try. He has held pastorates in college
towns in Indiana, Michigan, Cali-
fornia, and Washington, D. C. His
services have been in demand for
convocations and commencements for
several years, Mrs. Tinker said. For
seven years he was director of relig-
ious education at Illinois University.
His last pastorate was in Montreal.
This is Dr. Douglas's first return to
Ann Arbor in a speaking capacity
since resigning his pastorate. He will
be introduced by Prof. Edwin C. God-
dard of the Law School and a recep-
tion will be held on the stage. Tickets
for the lecture may be purchased at
Tinker's, Wahr's, the church office
on William St. and at the box office
after 7 p.m. All seats are 50 cents.

was greeted by more than 1,000 loyal
students and townspeople late Sun-

When the train bearing the team,
c o a c h e s, managers, cheerleaders,
trainers, and part of the band ar-
rived at 5:30 p.m., the platform of
the station was crowded with local
supporters, and the street in front of
the depot was jammed with parked
Most of the assembled crowd had
waited two hours for the arrival of
the train, which was originally ex-
pected at 3:30 p.m. At that time there
were nearly 2,500 enthusiastic rooters
gathered on the platform.
A large portion of that crowd re-
mained at the station until 4:30 p.m.
when it was reported that the train
would be delayed another hour. Scat-
tered showers further diminished the
ranks of the supporters.
However, when the train appeared
in the station, a cheer went up from
the crowd. Because of the fact that
a large portion of the Varsity band
had remained in Chicago there was

Close Battle Seen
For Higher Posts
Total Registrations In City
About 14,000; A Large
Vote Expected
Traditionally a stronghold of Mich-
igan Republicanism Washtenaw
county will ballot today for nine
county officers, six members of the
Stateadministration, and senators
and representatives in both Congress
and the State legislature.
Approximately 14,000 voters are
registered in Ann Arbor, City Clerk
Fred C. Perry reported yesterday.
Perry said he expected a total vote
in the city of more than 11,000. Other
districts in the county outside the city
are expected to return nearly an equal
number of ballots.
Both Democrats and Republicans
were publicly claiming victory for
their local and state-wide tickets, al-
though impartiAl observers predicted
that the Republican county candi-
dates would win a majority of the
local positions, at least.
Close Battle Seen
The contests for governor, U. S.
Senator, and representative for the
second congressionaldistrict, which
includes Ann Arbor, are being fought
'ut largely on the basis of support or
disapproval of the New Deal, and this
factor may lower the usually strong
support which Republican candidates
are given in county balloting.
In the 1932 congressional election,
Rep. John. C Lehr, the Democratic .
incumbent, was elected on a wave of
Roosevelt enthusiasm which gave him
a decisive victory over the Republican
-andidate, Earl C. Michener, who is
again Lehr's opponent. Lehr's margin
was gained outside Washtenaw
2ounty, however, as local votes were
split practically even between the two

didates, Republican Frank D. Fitz-
gerald, present secretary of state, and
Arthur J. Lacy, prominent Detroit
attorney, have both appeared in Ann
Arbor during the campaign. All in-
lications point to an even battle be-
tween them in Washtenaw county.

;hur H. Vandenberg, has not cam-
)aigned in the local district, although
'rank A. Picard, his Democratic oppo-
nent and former head of the Liquor
Control Commission, was here with
Vote On Six Amendments
With the submission of six consti-
tutional amendments to the voters, a
record vote for off-year elections is
xpected. Only one amendment ap-
oears to be favored by the majority
f the State'spress,uthe provision
which would enable county govern-
ment reorganization.
This, the fourth amendment on the
ballot, is in part the wot of two mem-
bers of the University political science
department, Professors Arthur W.
Bromage and Thomas H. Reed, mem-
bers of the sub-committee which
drafted the amendment.
Amendments two and three, the
first relating to. taxes on gas and oil
and the second to the weight tax on
automobiles, have been subject to the
widest condemnation. Opponents
claim that large gas and oil com-
panies wold be freed from taxation
which other industry pays, and that
the schools would suffer a serious loss
of revenue.
Complete results of the balloting for
county, State, and national office-
holders to be held today will appear
in the regular issue of The Daily to-
morrow morning. Significant results
in all other states will also appear in
