LONDON, Oct. 15.-(T)-Attorneys
oday prepared Mrs. Ernest (Wallie)
Simpson's divorce suit for an early
hearing, possibly before the end of
he month.
The beautiful American friend of
King Edward VIII is suing her ship
broker husband on charges of adul-
tery, the only grounds for divorce
in England. He announced he will
not contest the action.
Her suit will be heard at Ipswich,
one of the provincial assize centers,
on a date to be set Saturday.
Although Simpson himself an-
nounced the suit after he and his
slender wife moved to separate resi-'
dences last night, the British public
in general, presumably still was un-,
aware that their monarch's closest
woman friend was seeking to rid her-
self of her husband.
Not one London newspaper pub-
lished the story. Even the news re-
views, most of which have printed
pages of articles copiously illustrated
with photographs showing the Balti-
more debutante and King Edward to-
gether, put their weekly editions on
the street without even a hint of the
rift in the Simpson household.
Intimates expected Simpson would
remain away from Ipswich when Jus-
tice Hawke calls the case. The usual
procedure is for the defendant's solic-
itors to guard his interests for him
in such uncontested suits.
Close friends of Mrs. Simpson said
they expected she would continue to
be King Edward's guest at times.
They said also they understood she
would be a member of the small party
of friends who will accompany him
to the royal country home at Sand-
ringham early next week.
French Hate War
Despite Patriotism
Mower Declares
The French people are not militar-
ists; they hate uniforms and despite
their intense patriotism, they cer-
tainly do not want war.
That is the opinion voiced yester-
day morning by Edgar Ansel Mowrer
University of Michigan alumnus and
noted foreign correspondent, before
Prof. James K. Pollock's class on
political parties and electoral prob
lems. Mr. Mowrer, who lectured las
night at the Lydia Mendelssohn
Theatre, spoke to the class for al
most an hour at the invitation o
Professor Pollock.
The French dislike of uniform
even permeates the uniformed men
themselves, Mr. Mowrer told the
class. "When a French officer goe
home he takes off his uniform, lik
the worker takes off his overalls, be
fore calling on his best girl or ven
turing forth on the streets."
One of the fundamental reason
for the Frenchman's dislike of mil
itarism, Mr., Mowrer said, is becaus
he is essentially a solitary, privacy
seekina individualr. H e oesnotlik(

Ballotting Reaches 3,156
As Landon Gains; Voting
Ends Today
Norman Thomas
Holds Third Place
Sororities And Fraternities

Has Only_11 Votes
Governor Landon cut President
Roosevelt's lead to 15 in the 3,156
votes cast in The Daily's three day
presidential poll by receiving 543
votes to Roosevelt's 523 in the second
day's ballotting yesterday.
The President's running total is
now 1,456 votes, while that of Gov-
ernor Landon is 1,441 votes. Yester-
day's ballotting of 1,146 was much
lighter than that of Wednesday when
2,010 votes were cast.
Still runiiing in third place, Norm-
an Thomas,, Socialist candidate, re-
ceived 57 votes yesterday to make his
running total 156. In the fourth po-
sition is Earl Browder with 88 votes:.
19 votes were cast for him yesterday.
ITrailing far, behind the field is the
Union party candidate, Rep. William
Lemke who received only 3 votes yes-
terday to make his total 11.
Results at the end of the second
days' ballotting in The Daily's
student presidential poll:
Roosevelt ................1,456
Landon ...................1,441
Thomas .................... 156
Browder...................88
Lemke .....................11
Total votes cast: 3,156
Only one name, that of Emma
Goldman, noted anarchist, was writ-
ten in the ballots yesterday.
In the voting of fraternity and
sorority members, Governor Landon
held a lead of 616 to 536 over Presi-
dent Roosevelt in the two days' bal-
lotting. H o w e v e r, independents
showed their preference for the Pres-
ident by giving him 920 votes to 825
for Landon in the first two days of
voting. Members of Greek letter
groups gave Norman Thomas 22 votes
in the first two days, and indepen-
dents gave the socialist 134. The
Communist candidate, Earl Browder,
was the recipiant of 8 votes from the
fraternities and sororities after two
days have passed, while independents
have cast 80 ballots for him. At the
close of the second day, Rep. Wil-
liam Lemke, candidate for the Union
party, had received only 2 votes from
the fraternity and sorority mem-
bers and 9 from independents.
The voting by women students was
still very light yesterday. Hope was
expressed that more co-eds will turn
out to cast their ballots tomorrow, the
last day of the poll.
Great interest is expected to be
shown in the poll today, because of
the closeness of the race, President
Roosevelt having only a very slight
lead.
All persons desiring to vote today
are reminded to bring their cards with
them, for they must be shown before
a ballot can be secured.
Voting will continue today in the
S Angell Hall lobby, on the Diagonal
