Hildebrandt Is
Promoted To
New Mathematics H e a d
Received Education At
Given A.B. Degree
When 17 Years Old
Started Career H e r e In
1909 As InstructorlIn
The appointment of Prof. Theophil
H. Hildebrandt by the Board of Re-
gents to the position of chairman of
the department of mathematics was
announced yesterday by Dr. Frank E.
Robbins, assistant to the President
of the University.
The decision as to the appointment,
made upon the recommendation of
the literary college Executive Com-
mittee and after consultation with
faculty members of the mathematics
department, came too late for the last
meeting of the Regents, and a ballot
had to be taken by letter and tele-
phone to determine the result.
Professor Hildebrandt, who is 46
years of age, was considered a child
prodigy, receiving his A.B. degree
from the University of Chicago at
the age of 17. The following year
he took his M.A. from the same insti-
tution, and in 1910 was the recipient
of a Ph.D. degree, also from the Uni-
versity of Chicago.
He first came to the University of
Michigan in 1909, as an instructor of
mathematics in the School of Engi-
neering. He has been in the liter-
ary college ever since his department
was centralized in this school, be-
coming an assistant professor in 1914,
an associate professor in 1920, and a
full professor in 1923.
Well known among his professional'
associates as a distinguished mathe-
matician, Professor Hildebrandt!
served from 1924 to 1926 as vice-presi-
dent of the American Mathematical
Society. Earlier distinctions include
membership in Phi Beta Kappa and'
Sigma Xi.

Board of Regents.

erty valued at more than $20,000,000
to the University.

igan stood alone in the nation tonight
in its thorough renunciation of New
Deal candidates. I
An almost complete tabulation of
the votes cast in Tuesday's general
election disclosed that a Republican
United States senatpr has been re-
tained, a Republican governor has
been named to succeed a Democratic
executive, four Democratic congres-
sional seats have been seized by the
once-more majority Republican party
and the Democratic majority in the
legislature evidently has been upset.
In addition the Republicans elected
two and possibly three state officers
below governor. A close contest re-
mained to be settled to determine
whether a Republican or Democrat
will assume the office of Secretary of
State next January. Only a few hun-
dred votes separated Orville E. At-
wood, Republican candidate, and
Maj.-Gen. Guy M. Wilson. Democrat.
Two Democra Survive
Two Democratic state officers ap-
peared to have surviVed the Repub-
lican upheaval. Theyi were Theodore
I. Fry, state treasurer, and John K.
Stack, Jr., auditor-general.
An almost final tally of the vote
showed that Secretary of State Frank
D. Fitzgerald defeated Arthur J. Lacy,
Democrat, for the governorship by
around 70,000 votes. 'Senator Arthur
H. Vandenberg. beat-'°Frxank A. Pie-
ard, his Democratic opponent for
United States senator, by more than
50,000. Thomas Reed, of Shelby, was
chosen lieutenant governor over Al-
len E. Stebbins, Democratic incum-
bent. Harry S. Toy, prosecutor of
Wayne county, was named attorney-
general, defeating Patrick H. O'Brien,
Democratic incumbent.
Lacy Asks Co-Operation
With Fitzgerald's lead above 50,000,
Lacy sent him a telegram of congrat-
ulations and requested that all cit-
izens co-operate with the Republican!
executive-elect in the interest of good
government. Fitzgerald said that he
will keep his pledges to the citizens
of the state.
United States Senator James Couz-
ens, Republican, after the result of the
election was known, made a speech
before the Optimist Club in Detroit
in which he said, "the thing for every-
one to do is show continued faith in
President Roosevelt's policies, abun-
dant partisanship and aid the pro-
The swing of votes that finally shat-
tered the two-year-old reign of the
Democrats was violent. Early returns
indicated an almost certain victory
for the Democrats as outstate Re-
publican majorities failed to measure{
up to expectations.

shadowed by the Democratic sweep
in the off-year election.
With the Senate almost three-
fourths Democratic, the 'aisle which
has separated the party seats for
many years will be largely obliterated,
figuratively as well as literally.

marked the voting on so many issues
at the last session, will, in the opin-

cause the thin Republican ranks will
be made up about half by senators
who have frequently voted with the
administration in the past.
With the party lineup apparently
destined to remain about the same
in the House, there will not be the
noticeable change there that is as-
sured in the Senate. But even in!
the House there has been a weeding
out of some of the outstanding Re-
publican stalwarts and many changes
in personnel among the Democrats.
Maintenance of the Democratic
majority in the House, and therefore
of the power of the speakership, will
add zest to the contest for that post,
vacated by the death of the late
Speaker Rainey.
The increased size of the Demo-
cratic majority will bring little change
in its leadership.


Will Continue Sale Of

Sale of the November issue of

the first time yesterday, will be
continued today, Joseph E. Horak,

riounced last night.
The magazine will be sold by
staff salesmen at important points
throughout the campus. An ex-
ceptionally large sale of the issue
was reported by Horak.



Of His Policies
HYDE PARK, N. Y., Nov. 7 -(P)-
President Roosevelt, happy at the
mandate of the people to carry on
his New Deal, turned his full atten-
tion today to public affairs.
The President made no comment
on the returns from the general elec-
tions, but Postmaster General James
A. Farley, who talked to him by tele-'
phone from New York City, said
he was "overjoyed with the returns
throughout the nation.,,
There was no doubt about the en-
thusiasm over the result, but Mr.
Roosevelt already was thinking about
the White House and the nation's
problems. He will go to Washington
by special train tonight and will be
at his desk Thursday.
Government leaders held a con-
viction that the end of the campaign
will lead to a more normal progress
of administration activities. The
President, beyond any doubt, has a
well developed picture of national'
conditions after a summer and fall
of study, while politics were bubbling.
One Proposed
Amendment Is
Given Approval
DETROIT, Nov. 7 -(P)- One of
the six proposed amendments to the
state constitution submitted to the
voters in Tuesday's election appeared
likely to be approved and another was
within striking distance as the tabu-
lation of votes continued tonight.
The proposal to make the election
of judges non-partisan had 285,462
yes and 253.998 no votes when 1,831
of the state's 3,451 precincts had been

County Victory'
Michener Defeats Lehr As
Washtenaw'County Is
Swept By G.O.P.
With the entire G.O.P. slate given
varying majorities in Washtenaw
county, final returns drifting in yes-
terday showed that Ann Arbor had
taken the lead in the decisive victory
which county Republicans scored in,
Tuesday's election.
Outstanding among the Republi-
can victories here was the return
to Congress of Earl C. Michener of
Adrian, who, running against Rep.
John C. Lehr of Monroe, won by a
3,000 vote majority. Rep. Lehr de-
feated Michener two years ago.
The entire Republican slate of state
officers was indorsed by Washtenaw
county, only one township and the
fourth and fifth Ann Arbor wards
going for Democratic candidates.
Andres Leads Ticket
Led by Sheriff Jacob Andres, all
G.O.P. county candidates were swept
into office. Harry H. Atwell, county
clerk, only Democrat to win a county
position in 1932, was defeated after
a close fight by Supervisor Emmett
Gibbs of Superior Township.
Andres received a majority of more
than 8,500 over his Democratic rival,
Owen A. Steffe. Prosecutor Albert J.
Rapp, who won over Arthur Lehman
by a vote of 11,182 to 9,089, is the
only Washtenaw county prosecutor
ever to be chosen for a third term.
Redmond M. Burr of Ann Arbor
was swept into the State Legislature
over George Ennen of Ypsilanti by
more than a 5,000 majority, while
State Senator Andrew L. Moore of
Pontiac defeated Mrs. Christine Mc-
Donald of Washtenaw Road by a lead
which well, exceeded 4,000.
Home Rule Supported Here
Though it appeared probable that
only the amendment providing for a
Inon-partisan election of judges would
be successful out of the six submitted,
Ann Arbor voted its approval of
amendment number four, providing
for county home rule. This amend-
ment was defeated by Washtenaw!
county as a whole, and its strong vote
here was believed to be due in a large
measure to support from the Univer-
sity faculty.

Result Of Balloting Is
(By Associated Press)
The electoral storm which tore
states from Republican anchorages
of long standing bade fair Wednes-
day night to give the Democrats com-
plete and solid control --hitherto un-
precedented-of the governorships,
senatorial and House delegations in 22
It left Republicans with but the-
narrow margin of one Senate seat sep-
arating them from complete loss of
four other states - Idaho, Nebraska,
Rhode Island and South Dakota. Of
the senators from these states only
Jesse H. Metcalf, of Rhode Island,
could' be counted as a standpat Re-
Landmarks Lifted
The full sweep of the balloting lift-
ed out of the Senate such Republican
landmarks as David A. Reed, of Penn-
sylvania, and Simeon IE. Fess, of Ohio,
the one regarded as the symbol of
conservatism, the other a.long time
Republican leader and chairman of
that Party's National Committee in
the days of Herbert Hoover.
The victory which left Democrats
jubilant found Republicans calling the
New Deal a disease which must run its
course. Markets, after a marked ab-
sence of enthusiasm on the part of
stocks, responded in strightly fashion
before the closing gong. Brisk buying
lifted stocks. Wheat topped the dollar
a bushel level. Cash corn rose to the
highest premium it had claimed in a
number of years.
The Democrats had elected 25 sen-
ators, seizing nine seats held by Re-
publicans. The G.O.P. had elected five.
The 43 holdover Democrats give that
party a two-thirds majority for the
first time since pre-Civil War days.
Democrats Lead, 3-1
In the representative races, the
Democrats had elected 295, the Re-
oublicans 92, the Progressive seven
ind the Farmer-Labor two. Demo-
:rats had captured 23 Republican
:eatsand the Republicans 17 Demo-
,ratic seats.
As the debris began to clear after
he savage Democratic onslaught, it
ecame certain that Democrats would
nave a topheavy Senate majority with
37 seats.
The nine states which ousted Re-
oublicans to give their desks to Dem-
)crats were Connecticut, Indiana,

Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and West
NEW YORK, Nov. 7.- ( )--With
;he Democrats in complete control of

'Bull Moose" split of 1912, reappor-
ionment of congressional, state and
assembly districts was regarded as al-
anost a certainty tonight.
"I was always for a sound reappor-
ionment," Gov.. Herbert H. Lehman
said in discussing policies consequen-
tial to his re-election, "and that is one
Df the things I intend to take up this
win ter."
For years, the Democrats have
sought reapportionment, but the Re-
publicans have always blocked it in
the legislature.
BALTIMORE, Nov. 7. - (P) - Gov.
Alfred C. Ritchie, Maryland's cele-
brated Democratic governor, who has
had a long tenure in the state house,
appeared destined for defeat tonight,
as his Republican opponent, Harry W.

with only a few scattered precincts
remaining untabulated.

Practical Purpose Of Religion
Described By Alfred L. Klaer

EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the third
of a series of articles explaining the re-
ligious opportunities available for stu-

certed effort of religious organizations
on the campus to advise the student
body of their activities. Other articles
in the series will appear each day this
(Campus Minister. Presbyterian Church)
Creativity is religion's central field.
The problem of understanding and
making an adjustment to one's self,
to the social order which supports
and makes possible rich individual
experience, and to the material world
of which we are also a part, is a very
practical problem. Our attempt to
solve this problem is what most of

on religion, is that it should help this
generation fashion an adequate goal
for itself. Youth holds that religion
should lead to a creative conscious-
ness of its organic possibilities, and!
to a dynamic awareness of all pres-
ent limitations to an abundant life.
The Kingdom of God is within each
one of us. The urge to look after.
our own best interests and to create
and support the kind of social situa-
tion which best conserves these per-
sonal interests is instinctive. The'
quest for the more abundant life is
rooted in original nature.
Each variety of religion with its
individual solution, like everything
else, must be judged by its fruits.!
