The Michigan Technic, publication
of the students of the engineering
school, was presented the award for
the best engineering college journal
by the Engineering College Maga-
zine Association at a dinner in the

The association was organized with
the purpose of maintaining a stand-
ard style and publictaion policy for
the engineering college magazines of
the country. The first convention
was held in the Union 14 years ago
and since then the Technic has led
the field of 24 member publications

LISBON, Portugal, Oct. 24.-(Sat-!
urday) -AP)-Severance of diplomatic
relations with the Madrid govern-
ment was announced early today by
the Portuguese government.
A note to the Spanish ambassador
here contained reasons for the ac-
tion, it was announced officially.
(The government of Portugal, a
dictatorship under Premier Antonio
de Oliveira Salazar, has been accused
by the Russian government of aiding
the Spanish Fascist insurgents. Por-
tugal has flatly denied the charge).
The Portuguese charge d'a'ffaires at
Alicante, Spain, was instructed to
return here on a Portuguese naval
vessel anchored at that port on the
southeastern Spanish coast.
TENERIFFE, Canary Islands, Oct.
24.-(Saturday)-(P)-The Spanish
Fascist radio station here reported
early today insurgent troops had cap-
tured Mostoles, ten miles southwest"
of Madrid.
The Fascists drove out government
forces after an advance from Naval-
carnero, a key point in the capital's
defenses which they captured Wed-
nesday, the broadcaster said.
Oct. 23.-(A)-Fascist insurgent war-
planes-"blackbirds of death" -
strafed terrified Madrid today.
Three times within 12 hours a half
dozen planes,inneat formation, dived
on the city and splattered buildings
and streets with their machine gun
The populace, mainly women and
children, dashed wildly through the
streets seeking shelter in basements
while ricocheting bullets whined past
their heads.
All able bodied men were at the
front, trying to keep the swiftly mov-
ing insurgent advance from driving
closer to their homes and families.
At Mostoles, west of Madrid, the
trained insurgents steadily were
pressing the government lines within
10 miles of the capital.
When the panic-stricken populace
emerged warily from their under-
ground retreats, they found the cityl
littered with pamphlets dropped by
the aviators calling upon them to
surrender their city.

represents the prestige of the Nazi
regime, will hold off the radical ele-

Goering himself is a member of
the over - enthusiastic militaristic
clique, which would risk inflation
and the entire credit structure of
Germany in order to secure with ut-
most rapidity the goals of the second'

sufficiency and military equality with
European powers, he said.

Schacht represents the more con-
servative financial element in the
party, which favors the four-year
plan but does not want to overdo
it, Professor Ellis said. This means,
in the opinion of Professor Ellis, that
if Goering insists on carrying out
his own policy in spite of Schacht, the
latter will probably resign.

Cinema Technique
A t League Theatre
"An independent cinema movement
is important to the development of
the motion picture as an art, accord-
ing to Joris Ivens, distinguished
Dutch director, who delivered a short
lecture and gave a running com-
mentary during the showing of four
of his films, last night in the Lydia
Mendelssohn theatre.
Mr. Ivens, who has been directing
the production of this new type of
cinema work for the past seven years,
presented "Rain," "Industrial Sym-
phony," "Borinage," and "New
Earth"-pictures which show the de-
velopment of his photographic tech-
nique from its early phase as abstract
art to its present form as a problem
-presenting "social document."
In his next endeavor Mr. Ivens is
collaborating with Paul de Kruif in
producing a screen version of de
Kruif's book, "Why Keep Them
"Borinage," Mr. Ivens said, was
produced upon the suggestion of a
Belgian labor group, for the purpose
of arousing public interest in the
squalid conditions of the Borinage
coal mining area.
When the picture was shown in
Brussels-a two hour trip from the
mines-the conditions described
seemed so unbelievable that Mr. Iv-[
ens was forced to get Andre Gide,
noted French writer, to verify them
before the film was accepted as a,
realistic portrait and not a figment
of the imagination, he said.

Five names will appear on the bal-

Landon, Norman Thomas, Earl Brow-

also be conducted.
The poll will be similar to the
straw vote conducted by The Daily,
before the 1932 presidential election j
when 471 faculty votes were cast.
Former President Hoover led the vote
by a comfortable margin, polling
236 votes to 132 for Presient Roose-
velt, 96 for Thomas, and 7 for William
Z. Foster, the Communist candidate.
Hoover's margin in the 1932 faculty
poll wasconsiderably less than the
lead he received in the student poll
of that year which he won by a mar-
gin of more than two to one. Pres-
ident Roosevelt was defeated in the
student poll conducted last week by!

Mid West Backs Landon; East Is
For Roosevelt In The Daily's Poll


A substantial lead gained among
students from within the state and
from the middle west in general pro-
vided the margin by which Governor
Landon led in The Daily's presiden-
tial poll, final compilation of the
ballots revealed last night.
Of the 1,849 votes which the Re-
publican candidate for the presi-
dency received, 894 were cast by na-
tives of the state, while President;
Roosevelt obtained only 801 votes
from the same source. The grand
totals for these two showed Landon
leading by 26 over the President.
Among students who listed Illinois
as their residence the Kansan re-

in Pennsylvania the figures were re-
spectively 69 and 60, in New Jersey
63 and 42 and in Massachusetts 37
and 17.'
Norman Thomas, Socialist candi-
date who received 178 votes in the
poll, obtained a somewhat larger pro-
portion of his support from the east-
ern students than did either the Pres-
ident or Governor Landon, the figures
showed. New Yorkers' votes account-
ed for 30 of his total, New Jersey for
14 and Massachusetts for 7, but Penn-
sylvanians gave him only 2 votes. In
Michigan Thomas obtained 93 votes,
