Elections to be held today for of-
ficers of the freshman classes in the
literary college and the College of
Engineering will bring to a close a
hectic period of voting for class offi-
cers begun with the senior elections
Nov. 13.
Slates and plans for the election
in the literary college were an-
nounced last night by William R.
Dixon, 136, president of the Men's
Council, who commented on the fact
that all elections to date have been
carried off with great success and
with a minimum of "skullduggery."
Identification Cards Necessary
The literary college will vote from
3 to 5 p.m. in Room 25, A.H., and
identification cards will be demanded
before the freshmen are allowed to
vote.
The two traditional slates of Wash-
tenaw and State Street are in the
field, this time unopposed by any in-
dependent ticket. William Farns-
-worth, Phi Kappa Psi, at the head
of the State Street candidates, will
oppose Fred Vogt, Phi Delta Theta,
running for president on the Wash-
tenaw. ticket.
The rest of the State Street slate
offers Jenny Petersen, Pi Beta Phi,
vice-president, Nancy Stonington,
Alpha Phi, secretary, and Karl H.
Hepp, Independent, for treasurer.
Other Candidates Announced
Washtenaw's candidates for those
gffices are Betsy Guild, Mosher Jor-
dan and Independent, Eleanor
French, Kappa Kappa Gamma, and
William Wreford, Independent, re-
spectively.!
The freshman engineering slate is
comprised of independents as well
as men from both Washtenaw and
State Street houses. It was stated
last night by freshman politicians
that the party factions so evident in
the literary college elections play no
part in the engineering college elec-
tions.
The one slate in the field for the
freshman engineers is called the In-
dependent Techs and has running for
president Gene Cooke. The other
candidates on the .ticket are Tim
Hurd, vice-president; Charles Schuh,
secretarv; and Fred Luebke, treas-
urer.
Total Of $42,300
Is Reached By
Fund Campaign
Wood Expects Total To Be
Raised By Unreported
Subscriptions
Subscriptions, bringing the total

amQunt pledged so far to $42,300 in
the drive of the Ann Arbor Com-
munity Fund for $55,000, were an-
nounced yesterday by Everett Hames,
executive secretary for the campaign.
A report luncheon held yesterday
noon for workers ended the formal
intensive program that has been fol-
lowed during the last two weeks.
The amount pledged does not show
the entire amount obtained in this
part of the drive, however, as many
pledges have not been reported to
the auditors and some of the divi-
sions have not completed the solici-
tations assigned to them.
It was estimated that approxi-
mately $3,000 more were to be re-
ported by the special gifts division.
This, together with other unreported
pledges, would bring the total sub-
scriptions to $50,000. Plans are now
being formulated for a final "clean-
up" drive that will bring in the nec-
essary $5,000 to put the drive "over
the top."
Total subscriptions of over $16,000
were reported yesterday by the Uni-
versity. Fund officials stated theyl

Campbell Portrays Mark Twain
As Mouthpiece Of The Nation'

Shows Author As Extreme
Pessimist And Master Of
Bitter Satire
By ARNOLD S. DANIELS
Mark Twain, the artist, contrary
to the opinion of many of his bi-
ographers, was the natura and best
possible expression of the experiences
which formed the character of Sam-
uel Clemens, the man, said Prof. Os-
car James Campbell of the English
department, in a talk given yesterday
in the Natural Science Auditorium.
Professor Campbell's lecture con-
stituted the University's part in the
nation-wide celebration of the cen-
tennial of the birth of the great
American author. He was introduced
by Prof. Howard Mumford Jones of
the English department.
"Mark Twain," said Prof. Camp-
bell, "became, before his death, the
mouthpiece of a nation." He was, he
said, one of the finest results of the
new western civilization w h i c h
sprang up in the nineteenth century.
He disagreed strongly with the mod-
ern school which attempts to prove
that Mark Twain was blocked from
true greatness by the environment in

which he grew up and spent so much
.of his time.
"The life which he experienced in
the West became the stuff of his
masterpieces,"said Prof. Campbell.
He pointed out the influences which
show their -effect throughout the
author's work-the great Mississip-
pi, and the boats which stopped oc-
casionaly at the little town of Han-
nibal, the deep woods and the broad
prairies, the many negro slaves and
their mystical superstitions and beau-
tiful folk-music.
"In these stimulations to wonder
and expansive imagination," said
Prof. Campbell," the new biographers
can see only the strains and repres-
sions of froniter life."
Twain, he said, lived fully, and
eagerly drank up all of the colorful
experiences of the noisy, violent,
gaudy, exhuberant era in which he
lived. Though Samuel Clemens was
by nature extremely pessimistic, Prof.
Campbell pointed out, all of his varied
experiences became for him objects of
brilliant satire, usually touched with
whimsicallity. Thus, he said, were
the characters of Clemens and Twain
reconciled in the individual and thus
Twain turned to humorous writing,
for in it he found the best medium of
expression for the -bitterness and,
anger which is often to be discerned
behind his writing.
Any form of sham was always a
target for Twain's satire, and it was
this that he attacked in his "In-
nocents Abroad," said Prof. Campbell.
"However," he said, "a few of his
works, written later in his life, lack
even the customary artistic covering.
They are expressions of bare, un-
sublimated pessimism. TheaMyster-
ious Stranger and The Man Who
Corrupted Hadleyburg are the un-
mistakeable harvest of gloom."
These books, Prof. Campbell point-
ed out, are more exhibitions of Sam-

Returns from the first day of the
two-day Christmas drive of Galens,f
honorary society for junior and sen-
ior medical students, were more than,
satisfactory, John B. Wood, '36M,
stated yesterday.
"In spite of the cold weather, $300
more than last year was realized
yesterday," Wood pointed out, "and
we are on our way to surpassing our
quota."
The society plans to install a li-
brary in their workshop in the Uni-
versity Hospital for children who are
convalescing or are under treatment.
Another new project under consider-
ation is the giving of a scholarship to
some children who have shown par-
ticularly good work in the manual
training shop.
Wood explained that out of thet
money collected the workshop will be
financed and the children will be
given their annual Christmas party.-
"Our installation of the library and'
the financing of a scholarship'is en-
tirely dependent on how the studentsc
who have not already done so re-
spond today," he added.I
The drive will continue all todayt
and member of Galens will again be'
stationed about the campus as well ast
downtown.
"The Galens medical society is veryf
grateful to the students and facultyc
who have contributed so generously,"
Wood added, "and also to the frater-

To Lecture On
Travels Tonight
Will Speak On 'A Voyage
To The Ice Inferno' At
8:15 In Hill Auditoriuni
"A Voyage To The Ice Inferno,"
depicted in motion pictures and de-
scribed by the leader of the expedi-
tion, the Rev. Bernsrd Hubbard,
known as the "Glacier Priest," will be
presented at 8:15 p.m. today in Hill
Auditorium to patrons of the Ora-
torical Association Lecture Course.
Father Hubbard is head of the ge-
ology department of Santa Clara
University, California, and one of the
most popular travel lecturers on the
American platform today. During
his lecture tour of the country last
year Father Hubbard set a new rec-
ord for platform speaking, having de-
livered 214 complete lectures in 184
days.
His lecture tonight will be intro-
duced by Prof. Ralph Belknap of the
geology department.
Queer Ice Shapes Found
The "Ice Inferno" to which Father
Hubbard refers in the topic of his
program, is no exaggeration as a
description of the region which he
and three assistants from the Santa
Clara geology department explored
last summer.
On this expedition they discovered
a new volcanic crater of ice at the
western end of the Alaskan Penin-
sula, a crater which was found to
contain ice formations of a peculiar,
needle-like shape which are now
called the Aghileen Pinnacles. They
found the crater to have been orig-
inally more than 30 miles in circum-
ference, making it one of the largest
geological formations in the entire
peninsular area.
Pictures Taken At Great Risks
The moving pictures which Father
Hubbard will show during his lec-
ture tonight were obtained only at a
great hazard to the members of the
expedition, who had to carry the
heavy cameras with them as, they
scaled sharp precipices of ice and
snow blocking their passage westward
along the Peninsula.

Strike Riot
Bloody Fight Precipitated
Between Strikers And
Police Force
Workers Belong To
Independent Union
Brick Bats, Night Sticks,
Tear Gas Bombs Used
By Factions
DETROIT, Dec. 3.-(R) -Twenty-
one persons were injured tonight in
a fight between strikers and police
in front of the Motor Products Corp.
plant.
Precipitated when company guards
tossed tear gas bombs into a crowd
of strikers gathered at the gates of
the factory for a demonstration, the
battle of night sticks and brick-bats
turned into a free-for-all riot. Po-
lice quieted the disorder after a half
hour of fighting.
Eighteen strikers, two policemen
and a woman were injured in the riot.
The workers, members of the Auto-
motive Industrial Workers Associa-
tion, independent union, which has
been sponsoring a strike at the plant,
marched through to the plant from
their headquarters nearby. At the
gate the marchers, estimated at 500,
were joined by pickets in a demon-
stration. Plant guards interpreted a
move toward the gate as an effort
to force admittance to the grounds,
they told police, and tear gas bombs
were thrown.
Retreating, the crowd gathered
brick bats and marched on the em-
ployment office, breaking windows
and flinging a barrage of the bats
over the gates.
Anton Sorenson, in charge of the
special police detail of 200 men, was
injured when he was struck in the
back by a stone. Patrolman Bernard
Clark was struck in the arm by a
flying brick.
Mrs. Emma Krueger was treated at
a hospital for injuries she received
when the workers overturned an
automobile in which she was riding
with her husband along a street by
the plant.
Eighteen of the strikers were treat-
ed at a nearby hospital, two of them
for broken arms. Most of the in-
juries were cutsdand bruises about
the head and body.
Ten of the workers were arrested.
Retreating under the police night
stick attack, the strikers gathered
at their headquarters or stood about
the street in front of the plant.
Members of the group said no
further demonstration would be at-
tempted tonight, but that thestrik-
ers had been instructed to return
to the plant at 6 a.m. today.
Mussolini Prepares
For Economic War
ROME, Dec. 3.- Premier Mussolini
sharpened his weapons for an ec-
onomic war today with the approval
of his ministers.
In addition to numerous other pre-
cautionary steps, Il Duce was reliably
reported to have withdrawn all the
naval leaves. Full efficiency of his
million-man army was assured sever-
al days ago by the cancellation of
furloughs of 100,000 men.
Economization of oil was the main

object of the cabinet's meeting today,
in view of the threatened League of
Nations embargo. But food, com-
merce, finance, the army, navy and
air forces all received consideration
and 52 decrees were invoked.
A nut in the defense mechanism
was tightened today by reenforcing
the air corps. All vacancies in it
were ordered filled.
Oil production is to be stepped up
in Albania and an administration of
minerals was created to seek oil de-
posits upon Italian lands and develop
them.

Bring No Changej
In Regents' Plans
Philosophers say that in any ad-
vance or expansion in the world some-
one is necessarily adversely affected
and that some things must make way
for the advancement.
But the students who will find it
necessary to locate different places
to room next semester because of the
acquisition of the new block for the
building of the Rackham School of
Graduate Studies are probably not
taking their plight very philosoph-
ically.
In fact those students who eat and
work at Freeman's boarding house
drew up two petitions asking the
Board of Regents not to demand
evacuation of the house until the
clcse of school in June. Their ef-
forts were of no avail, however, for
following the close of the present
semester Freeman's house must close,
the Regents decreed.
Sixteen other buildings will also be
razed to the ground so that excava-
tion and other work can be started
and so the foundations of the build-
ing can be laid.
The exact number of students who
will be forced to move in the next
few weeks because the University
bought the block is not known. Ac-
cording to a report in the possession

of the University, at least 15 boys
