NEWS
Of The DAY
(By The Associated Press)
Hashing Of Vandenberg
Address Held Legal
WASHINGTON, Oct. 29.-()-The
Communications Commission held to-
day that the Columbia Broadcasting
Company was "within its legal rights"
in cutting off several stations broad-
casting a speech by Senator Vanden-
berg, (Rep., Mich.) recently.
The company cut off several sta-
tions because Vandenberg was "de-
bating" with mechanical reproduc-
tions of excerpts from addresses made
by President Roosevelt.
The Commission, in a letter reply-
ing to ,protests, said the stations were
cut off because the use of phono-
graphic recordings violated the
broadcasting company's rules.
A Commission rule requires me-
chanical reproductions to be an-
nounced as such before they are
broadcast.

Purchase Of An Annuity
Compulsory To Some;
OptionalTo Others
By FRED A. THOMSON
Despite the fact that there have
been many complaints against the
"experimentation process" of the So-
cial Security Act, and despite the fact
there have been angry protests based
on the ethical question of making a
worker contribute to a security fund,
there has existed right here at the
University a 'social security act'-
running smoothly and quite unosten-
tatiously.
Ever since 1919 a majority of the
faculty members have had to pay five
per cent of their salaries to the Uni-
versity annuity fund. Just as in the
New Deal security act, the University
(comparable to the employer) adds
an equal amount (five per cent) to
the contribution, the total sum being
alloted to the member at the prede-
termined time.
Paid At Same Age
To make the analogy more exact,
the University has set the date when
these annuities are to be paid at 65
years of age. As an added conven-
ience, the University offers the same
I opportunity to those on the faculty
who do not come under the same re-
strictions imposed upn specified
members. The following excerpt from

a University announcement makes'
this clear :
2. The Regents at their meeting
of January, 1919 agreed that any
member of the faculties entering the
service of the University since No-
vember 17, 1915, may purchase an
annuity from the above-named as-
sociation, toward the cost of which
tlie Regents would make an equal
contribution up to five per cent of his
annual salary not in excess of $5,000,
this, within the limit of five per cent
of the salary, doubling the amount
of the annuity purchased.
In the following clause, however,
it is made clear that it is compulsory
for definite members to pay the stip-
ulated five per cent, thus:
3. The purchase of an annuity
under the conditions mentioned in
(2) above is made a condition of em-
ployment in the case of all members
of the faculties, except instructors,
whose term of faculty service does not
antedate the University year 1919-
1920. With instructors of less than
three years' standing the purchase of
an annuity is optional.
Faculty Protected In 1919
It is important to note, in view of
the present conflicts regarding the
acts, that back in 1919 even the
teachers protested against the 'pre-
sumptuous attitude' of the University,
at least according to the testimony
of Waldo M. Abbot, professor of
speech and director of the Broad-
casting Service.
Professor Abbot, who was one of
the first to be 'afflicted,' or 'bene-
fitted,' as you will, admitted that he
was one of the many members who
was piqued at the Regents' ruling
at that time. "However," he added
firmly and quickly, "I believe I can
speak for all my colleagues when I
say that at present there is not a
single dissenting voice in the entire

City's Absentee
Voters' Ballots
Are, Incorrect
A check-up on the absentee voters
ballots showed that all those issued
from Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor are in-
correctly printed, city officials an-
nounced.
The ballots it was found, have two
squares in which the voter is to mark
his choice for electors for President
and Vice-President separately instead
of in the legal manner which requires
that the voter cast one vote for elec-
tors for the President and Vice-Pres-
ident. About 600 of these incorrect1
ballots have been issued from Ann
Arbor and about 35 from Ypsilanti.
It is expected that about a hundred
more will be issued before the dead-
line Saturday.
Since only the absentee ballots
are incorrect, and not those regular
ballots to be used Tuesday, city au-
thorities have decided to continue the
use of the incorrect ballots, and make
them legal. The ballots already is-
sued have been sent to all points of
:he country, and it would be virtually
impossible to recall them and issue
others before Tuesday.
Should any split votes be cast the
vote will be counted according to the
candidate for President.
