Landon Grasps Lead

lots were cast. The balloting this
year exceeded it by 1,148 votes.
IGovernor Landon showed himself
to be the favorite candidate of mem-
bers of fraternities and sororities,
polling 792 fraternity-sorority votes
to 644 for President Roosevelt,. a dif-
ference of 148. The President held
a similar lead among independent
voters who gave him 1,179 votes to 1,-
057 for Governor Landon, a differ-
ence of 122 votes.
Thomas revealed a modest follow-
ing among the fraternity and sorority
members who gave him 28 of his 178
votes. Browder received 10 votes
from members of Greek letter so-
cieties and Lemke received three.
The voting by male students was
much heavier than that of womenl
studens, due partly to the larger en-
rollment of men. The women's vote
was lighter than expected by campus
leaders, however. A slight majority
of the women's vote went to Lan-
don, the poll showed.
The voting was divided fairly close
between students of voting age and
those under 21, a tabulation of the
ballots showed.
Although the voting places were
watched closely by members of va-
rious political parties on the campus,
no outward clashes were reported.

'10 them the way oflife inthe com-
plex relationship between the indi-
vidual and society constitutes a creed;
words and sanctions are incidental."
Facts which would seem to corro-
borate the counselor's statement that
students are much interested in re-
ligion, but in a different and more
liberal sense than their parents, are
recorded in the results of a question-
Churches To Offer
Many Sunday Talks
(Continued from Page 1)
the Westminster Presbyterian church
of Detroit, and Moderator of the
Synod of Michigan, will speak on
"Education in Account with Reli-
gion" at a social hour of the Pres-
byterian Church to be held at 5:30
p.m. Sunday evening. Dr. William P.
Lemon, minister of the church, will
have for the topic of his sermon to
be given at 10:45 a.m., "The Coming
Religion."
Rev. Allison Ray Heaps, minister
of the Congregational church, will
give another in a series of talks on

building Christian personality. The
student group will meet at 6:00 Sun-
day evening for a panel discussion
on the subject "Whether World Bro-
therhood has progressed because of
Christianity."
At Harris Hall, Dean Joseph Bur-
sley will speak at 7:0 Op.m. Sunday
on an unannounced topic.
"Van Gogh was no dilettante" is
the contention of Rev. H. P. Marley,
who will preach on the famous Dutch
artist at 10:30 Sunday morning at
the Unitarian church. "He took life
in such deep draughts that he paid
for it with his own life," Mr. Marley
said. Without seeking to estimate
the value of the paintings in the De-
troit exhibit, insured for a million
dollars, Mr. Marley says he will pre-
sent a character study of this frus-
trated soul who died penniless.
To those interested in current
world problems, and especially as
they are now focused in the bloody
battle ground of Spain, Professor Ar-
thur S. Aiton will speak on the "Re-
bellion in Spain." He will address
the Liberal Students Union of the
Unitarian Church at 7:30 p.m. Sun-

Fresh Air camp, and participants will
leave in private cars this afternoon,
with plans to be back sometime to-
morrow afternoon. Several patrons
interested in the S.C.A. have been in-
vited to assist Mr. Magill in the pro-
gram. They are Dr. and Mrs. Edward
