Six Parties Present

In Elections Todav
Unnamed Party To Oppose Missing Searcher
Washtenaw Coalition In For Smith Found
Literary Election


Campaigns Marked
By Lack Of Fanfare
Identification Cards To Be
Demanded; Council Will
Check With Directories
Two parties in the literary college,
three in the business administration
school, and an unopposed ticket in
the engineering college will go forth
today to do battle in the revived sen-
ior elections. The electoral scene, it
may be added, is marked this year by
a lack of the fanfare and hullabaloo
of former days.
In the literary college the Wash-
tenaw-Coalition party will present to
the student voters Russell Runquist,
Theta Xi, for president; Betty Green,
Martha Cook, for vice-president;
Robert Sullivan, Phi Sigma Kappa,
for treasurer; and Sue Thomas, Delta
Gamma, for secretary.
The Washtenaw-Coalition group,
which claims a heavy backing, will be
opposed by an unnamed party whose
slate includes William Renner, Alpha
Sigma Phi, for president; Dorothy
Jones, Mosher-Jordan, for vice-pres-
ident; William Reed, Independent,
for treasurer; and Margaret Cowie,
Alpha Phi, for secretary.
The Fraternity-Independent party
is apparently unopposed in the en-
gineering college. The slate includes:
Merrill For President
Robert Merrill, Phi Gamma Delta,
for president; Rupert Bell, Indepen-;
dent, for vice-president; Howard
Jackson, Independent, for treasurer;.
Sheldon Drennan, Alpha Delta Phi,
for secretary; and Robert Warner,
Trigon, for engineering council rep-
Francis Wallace, '36, president of
the Engineering Council,* said last
night that although no party had yet
presented itself to oppose the Fra-
ternity-Independent ticket, it wast
possible that such a group might
enter the race sometime today before
the election is run off.
The Fusion party of the business7
administration school has nominated1
Harold Nixon for president; Richardi
Brandt for vice-president; Francist
Butler for secretary; and -WilliamI
Morgan for treasurer.k
A second business administration
school party, unnamed as yet, in-t
cludes Walter Baker for president;t
Garratt van de Riet for vice-presi-
dent; Harold Schreder for treasurer;
and Stanley Kilgore for secretary.
Nicholson Nominatedk
The third party in this school, also
unnamed, has formulated a slate in-t
cluding Harvey Nicholson for pres-t
ident, David Merriam for vice-pres-t
ident; P. V. Holopigian for secretary;
and H. D. Soper for treasurer. t
The Student Directory has ap-
peared at last and it will be used in
checking off voters' names, William
R. Dixon, '36, president of the Men's
Council, said last night. All voters
must present identification cards
upon balloting.
Automatic voting machines will be
used in all three elections, Dixon said.
This is the first time in campus his-
tory that the devices have been em-
ployed, and they are expected to prove1
an added incentive in securing a rep-
resentative turnout.
Following are the times and places1
of today's elections:t
Literary college-3 p.m. to 5:30s
p.m. in Room 25, Angell Hall.
Engineering college-4:15 p.m. to
5:30 p.m. in Room 348 West Engi-
neering Building.t
Business administration school--
2 p.m. to 3 p.m. in Room 108 Tap-t

The architecture college election
will be held from 4 to 5 p.m. tomor-
row at a location to be announced in1
tomorrow's Daily. The music school
elections, which will be supervised by1
President Charles A. Sink, will be held
in the near future, Dixon said.

Faculty Leads
In Protest On
Zoning Change
State Institution Location
In 'A' Residential District
Seen As Dangerous
University faculty members took
the initiative in petitioning the Com-
mon Council last night to reject an
amendment providing that "state-
owned buildings, except penal and
corrective institutions," be excepted
from the restrictions of the zoning
ordinance for class A residential dis-
Required by law, the hearing was
held at the City Hall to give property
owners an opportunity to express
their view on the proposed change.
The amendment is aimed to allow
the Michigan Children's Institute to
take over the old Hoover estate 8n
Washtenaw Avenue.
An unofficial ballot of the crowded
council room showed the audience
to be unanimously agreed in favor of
rejecting any change in the zoning
ordinance as it now stands.
Prof. William C. Hoad of the engi-
neering college stated, "It would be
thoroughly unwise to change the
character of the zoning ordinance, in
the light of which people have built
their homes."
Dr. C. F. Ramsey, superintendent
of the Children's Institute, presented
the State's side of the controversy.
He pointed out that they wished to
pick no quarrel with property own-
ers but wished to leave the decision as
to whether the housing of the Insti-
tute in the Hoover residence would
be a violation of zoning rules.
The only near dissenting voice was
that of Prof. John H. Muyskens of
the speech department, who warned
that while it was dangerous to cir-
cumvent the ordinance, he was "all
for the children" if the problem can
be solved in no other way.
Alderman Max Krutsch, concluded
the meeting saying that he recognized
the attitude ofthe audience, and that
the ordinance committee would act
accordingly in the next meeting of
the Council.
Oxford Doctor
Cites Need Of
Broad Training
Dr. James A. Gunn, professor of
pharmacology at Oxford University,
speaking yesterday in the Natural
Science Auditorium in the fifth of the
University Lecture Series, pointed out
the ever-increasing danger of early
specialization among medical stu-
Dr. Gunn, whose subject was "Med-
ical Education and Practice," stated
that it is preferable to give the young
student a general training, allowing
time for specialization at the end of
the undergraduate course.
In discussing the type of man who
is suitable to enter the medical pro-
fession, he said, "There is no escap-
ing the profound influence of hered-
ity. Some people have character
which makes for success in medicine.

Teachers, however, must do what they
can with the material provided."
Dr. Gunn also said, in demonstrat-
ing how broad a good medical train-
ing must be, "The doctor in a com-
munity must deal with the effect of
disease on a whole family, he is a
father-confessor and he must be able

Moscow Fishermen
Marooned On Sea
Bottom For 5 Days
MOSCOW, Nov. 12. - (1) - Thous-
ands of fishermen returning to Cas-
pian ports today told an astonishing
story of having been marooned on the
bottom of the sea for five days, dis-
patches received here stated.
Equally astonishing was their re-
port that at the busiest period of the
fishing season the sea itself retired
from under the fleet.
The sea receded along 150 miles of
the northern shore line, leaving the
boats high and dry several kilometers
from solid earth.
Airplanes dropped food to the ma-
rooned men until the tide flowed back
and allowed them to refloat their
Anna Whitcomb
Prize Awarded
'The Laborer' Selected At
Detroit Institute Of Arts
Harry Bethke, '36, has been award-
ed the Anna Scripps Whitcomb prize
of $100 for the best painting or sculp-
ture exhibited at the annual exhibi-
tion for Michigan artists, which
opened last night at the Detroit In-
stitute of Arts, according to an an-
nouncement made last night at the
formal opening.
Bethke, who is a student of sculp-
ture under Prof. Avard Fairbanks.
was awarded the prize for his work,
"The Laborer," which was exhibited
last year at the League. The decision
was made unanimously by the jury of
the exhibition, which was selected by
the exhibiting artists and sculptors.
"The fact that Bethke was com-
peting with the best professional
sculptors in the state makes this
recognition of his talent even more
significant," Professor Fairbanks
Several other students of Professor
Fairbanks have works on display at
the exhibit, among them "Ruth" by
Elaine Brockbank, Grad.,"The Bud"
by Frances Clarke, '36, and "Perseus"'
by Harry Furst. Furst's work was1
awarded recognition last year at the
exhibit in the Grand Central galleries
last year. -
The exhibit will be opened to the
public today. Bethke's piece has

Snow Flurry Signals
Approach Of Winter
Snow? Well, almost.;
That was what Ann Arbor resi-
dents said at 7 p.m. yesterday when
a flurry of something halfway be-
tween snowflakes and rain drops
swished into their faces.
With the temperature registered
unofficially at approximately 35 de-
grees, the mist that had been driz-
zling all day, more or less, changed
suddenly into something that sus-
piciously resembled a snow.
True it did not last long. Before
7:30 p.m., the psuedo snow had ceased
altogether and did not reappear.
The coldest temperature yesterday
was near freezing, shortly before 93
a.m. The mercury was reported as
rising slowly until in the early after-
noon it had reached approximately
40 degrees, from whch it descended to
a point where, late last night, it was
2ain near freezing.

Reich Declares Embargo
On Exportation Of Iron
And Rubber Products
Sir Eric Drummond
And Il Duce Confer
France And England Stand
Firm For Enforcement
Of Sanctions
(By The Associated Press)
While Italy served formal notice
Tuesday that sanctions might drive
her from the League of Nations, Ger-
many and Austria lent support to
League efforts to force Italy to aban-
don her invasion of Europe.
Without mentioning Italy or Ge-
neva, the Reich decreed a blanket
embargo on the export of all raw ma-
terials for the iron, metallurgical and
rubber industries as well as other im-
portant products. The embargo is
effective Nov. 16, two days before
the League sanctions become effec-
At the same time, in Vienna, Egon
von Berger, Austrian foreign minis-
ter, announced to the Federal Diet
that although Austria still rejects the
League sanctions, the Austrian Gov-
ernment is ready to adopt an at-
titude similar to that of other, powers
with regard to the shipment of war
material to Italy.
Calls S -ctions 'Hostile'
The Italian note of protest to all
sanctionists countries branded the
ban on imports from Italy a "true
act of hostility."
The document coupled a declara-
tion that "until now" Italy had not
wished to leave Geneva with a request
for information from each of the
member nations on the manner in
which sanctions would be applied.
Responsible sources said that this
clearly indicated Italy might leave
the League should the application of
sanctions be "too hostile." Whether
or not she does so, these sources as-
serted, she has clearly indicated she
will hold sanctionist countries "in-
dividually responsible" for the ac-
tions against her under the League.
Duce And Drummond Talk
Premier Mussolini and Sir Eric
Drummond, British ambassador, con-
ferred for half an hour on the Med-
iterranean situation. The talks were
understood to be "progressing satis-
factorily," but officially there were
no details.
Authoritative sources in Paris said
that France and Great Britain were
drafting identical replies to the Ital-
ian protest and indicated that both
nations would stand firm for sanc-
Reliable British sources said it was
inconceivable that the Italian note
would have any effect upon the ap-
plication of action,
Italy's notes stated that sanctions
were undertaken without h7er par-
ticipation in the deliberations and
that no-notice of their nature had
been given her.
ithiopia Victorious
On Southern Front
A bloody Ethiopian victory on the
southern front, won at a heavy cost
of lives to both sides, was officially
claimed Tuesday by the government
at Addis Ababa.
Despite a withering Italian ma-
chine gun fire, the announcement as-
serted, the tribesmen of Emperor
Haile Selassie captured four Italian
tanks in desperate fighting at Anele,
Ogaden Province. The battlefield
was strewn with the dead of both
armies, the announcement said.
Ethiopia also claimed success in
another clash in the same region.
The government said its warriors
killed six Italian officers and many

soldiers, with the remainder fleeing
in panic, and captured six trucks.
Ethiopia, an authority in Addis
Ababa said, expects the first major
battle of the almost bloodless war
with Italy to be fought within a few
It will take place, it was pre-
dicted, on the northern front, south
of Makale. Rains, however, may de-
lay the engagement indefinitely.

The peoples of America must think

The exact cost of the new equip-
ment is not yet certain but it is esti-
mated at about $100. To further as-
sure appreciation of "La Maternelle"

ranging for a trained operator to be

At the present time the two horns
through which the sound comes are
placed at either side of the screen in
full view of the audience. With a
more modern type of screen it will be
possible to move these horns behind
the screen. This alteration, accord-
ing to Professor McFarlan, will re-
move the feeling of people sitting in
front rows that the sound is coming
to them from two different origins.
The new screen will also be larger:
than the present one and it is ex-
pected that because of this increase in
size a clearer and more life-like re-
production will result.
