EDI*OR'S NOTE: The following article was
written at the request of The Daily but does not.
necessarily represent our editorial opinion.
IN TjhE EXUITEMENT of the presidential cam-
paign this year the art of political prognosti-
cation and straw-voting has been carried to new
heights. Heretofore politically-minded Amer-
icans had only the Literary Digest and the straw
vote taken at the county fair on which to rely
in their own predictions of the winner of the
Presidential race. This year, however, the bus-
iness of telling the citizen how he is going to vote
before election day rolls around, has seen the
development of a new technique. Under the old
system, large numbers of ballots were sent out
to what the poll-taker fondly considered a "se-
lected" group of voters on the theory that the
ballots received would represent a cross section
of the general public. The new technique in.!
volves the use of a small number of ballots and
a large staff of investigators who make personal
contacts with the voters to get the opinions of
those who may not reply to a mailed question-
naire or who are not reached if the ballots are
sent out on mailing lists made up from direc-
tories of telephone subscribers or automobile-
The new personal contact method was intro-
duced by Dr. George Gallup in the samplings of .
American thought conducted by his American
Institute of Public Opinion, and has been used
by him for some time. In the present campaign
his method has been utilized by Archibald M.
Crossley in conducting a poll for the various
Hearst papers. The tabulations for both the
Gallup poll (published locally by the Detroit
News) and for the Crossley figure (printed in
the Detroit Times) are given in percentages of
the total major party vote rather than in actual
figures, the method used in all the older polls.
No one could suspect the Hearst-sponsored poll
of any love for President Roosevelt and the
American Institute samplings have been so com-
pletely free from partisan feeling that there is
no ground for urging political considerations as a
possible corrupting influence in either of these
polls, and no such charge has been made.
Briefly summarized, the Gallup poll gives the

Peril Of Anti-Semitism
To the Editor:
Following are excerpts from an address by
Dr. Will Durant, prominent philosopher, author
and lecturer, on the subject of Americanism Im-
perilled by Anti-Semitism:
"The history of the Jew in the last one hundred
and fifty years is one with the history of democ-
racy. Seeking refuge from oppression, he found
a new freedom and justice in young America, and
contributed lavishly to finance our War fo
Independence. In Europe itself he was liberated
from religious intolerance and political disabil-
ities by that same movement of Enlightenment
which emancipated the Western mind, and by
that same French Revolution which overthrew
the Bourbons and declared the Rights of Man.
Throughout the last century the Jew played a
creative and stimulating role in almost every field
of European culture except those arts which had
been closed to him by Biblical injunction against
graven images. In astronomy, Herschel; in
mathematics, Gauss,. Riemann and Einstein; in
medicine, Ehrlich, Wassermann and Steinach;
in poetry, Heine and Bialik; in criticism, Georg
Brandes; in music, Mendelssohn and Meyerbeer;
in statesmanship, Disraeli and Gambetta; in
a thousand ways the genius of a brilliant people
mingled with the mind and blood of Europe, and
helped to produce the exuberant culture and
humanitarian democracy of the 19th century.
I know of no other case in history, with the
exception of the ancient Athenians, in which a
people so trifling in number has been so fertile
in genius, or has contributed so abundantly to
science and civilization.

And now in that country to which they gave
most, in that Germany whose science, histor-
iography, literature and music have been so en-
riched by the Hebrew mind, the Jews are today
struck down by one of the most cruel blows in
the black record of human hate."
-A Humanitarian.
Farley's Stooge?
To the Editor:
When are you going to realize the position
you hold. The editors are elected to fill the va-
cancies made by graduates from the preceding
school year. The Daily is or should be controlled
by the University. It is not a private concern.
The editors are not the owners and publishers
of the paper.
In your editorial on Thursday of this week
you came out with merely your own personal
opinion. If I remember correctly you printed
early in the semester that you were going to
stand as the campus stood concerning the coming
presidential election. You always have shown
favoritism towards the New Deal, and after you
participate in conducting a poll on the campus
and find that the campus is contrary to your
opinion, still you are bull-headed enough to stick
to your old principle of Rooseveltism.

huge total of 477 electoral votes for President
Roosevelt, calling 12 votes (Connecticut, eight
and Rhode Island, four) unpredictable and giv-
ing 42 to Landon. On this prediction, President
Roosevelt would receive five more electoral votes
than the 472 he obtained in 1932. Dr. Gallup
puts down 31 states, with 315 electoral votes,
"sure for Roosevelt," including the Southern
and nearly all the Western states. His poll lists
only three states as "sure for Landon"-Maine,
Vermont and New Hampshire, with a total of
12 electoral votes. Of the remaining states-14
in number-three are considered "leaning Re-
publican," two are absolutely even, and nine are
termed "leaning Democratic." In this last group
are such important states as Illinois, Michigan,
New Jersey, Indiana, Ohio and Pennsylvania.
As for Mr. Crossley's Hearst-paper poll it,
too, reveals a very strong Roosevelt trend, with
406 electoral votes indicated for the President
and 122 for his Republican opponent, one state
-Wyoming, with three electoral votes-being
classed as a fifty-fifty. The fact that Mr. Hearst
realizes the implications of his own poll are
shown by the fact that in today's Times the
poll is on an inside page of the second section
instead of its usual place on the front page.
News-Week magazine has just published a
survey of the major polls-Gallup, Crossley and
Literary Digest-together with a summary of the
opinions of leading political commentators and
of certain confidential services. Its "poll of polls"
gives 123 votes to Landon, 345 to Roosevelt, with
four states-Illinois, Michigan, Nebraska, and
West Virginia-totaling 63 electoral votes termed
Perhaps the most reliable of all polls are the
betting odds, which last week ranged around five
to two on Roosevelt, with little Landon money in
sight, as many wager-hungry Democrats will
Taking these various polls together and en-
deavoring to evaluate each and reach a definite
conclusion, it would seem that the following
are tenable views:
First, Franklin D. Roosevelt will be re-elected
Tuesday by a landslide vote, as far as electoral
votes are concerned-a landslide vote which
may or may not exceed the vote he polled in 1932.
This is the real question of the campaign now.
The possibility of a Landon victory seems ex-
tremely remote, despite Mr. Ford and Chairman
Hamilton. Mr. Roosevelt should carry 32 to 37
states, Mr Landon obtaining the remainder, and
Mr. Lemke, despite his proud boasts of mid-
summer, bringing up the rear with exactly none.
Mro. Roosevelt should poll in the neighborhood
of 410 electoral votes with the prospect of his
getting more than the 472 h polled in 1932 de-
pendent on the last minute activities of the Far-
ley machine. The predictions of early summer
that November would see the closest race since
1916 when Woodrow Wilson barely nosed out
Charles Evans Hughes seems to have fallen by
the wayside. The only persons who speak of a
close race now are the Republican campaign
leaders whose statements are very reminiscent
of their predictions just before the crushing
Hoover defeat of 1932.
Second, Mr. Roosevelt will poll about 22 million
votes in a total popular poll of around 42 or 4
million, with Mr. Landon getting 19 million and
Mr. Lemke "pulling the sled" with about 1,000,-
000. Of the other four candidates, Mr. Thomas
should lose over half of his 1932 banner-year
total of 900,000 and end up with about 350,000
or 400,000-just under one per cent of the total.
Despite Hearstian allegations that the tiny
American Communist party is voting for Roose-
velt, Earl Browder, this year's Communist can-
didate, will poll something more than the 100,000
which William Z. Foster received in 1932. Mr.
Browder should add around 50,000 or 75,000 to
Foster's total four years ago. Not enough in-
formation is available. relative to the other two
minor party candidates. Dr. Leigh Colvin, pro-
hibitionist, and John W. Aiken, Socialist-Laborite
-to make an accurate prediction, but on past
performance Colvin should get some 75,000 and
Aiken 25,000.
Third, in all probability Mr. Roosevelt will
carry Alabama (11 electoral votes), Arizona (3),
Arkansas (9), California (22) Colorado (6), Flor-
ida (7), Georgia (12), Idaho (4), Indiana (14),
Kentucky (11), Louisiana (10), Maryland (8),
Minnesota (11), Mississippi (9), Missouri (15),

Montana (4), Nebraska (7), Nevada (3), New
Mexico (3), New York (47), North Carolina (13),
North Dakota (4), Oklahoma (11), Oregon (5),
South Carolina (8), Tennessee (11), Texas (23),
Utah (4), Virginia (11), Washington (8), and
Wisconsin (12). Total 31 states with 326 elec-
toral votes.
Mr. Roosevelt should carry Delaware (3), Ohio
(26), Illinois (29), Iowa (11), and West Virginia
(8). Total, 5 states and 77 votes.
Too close for adequate prediction are Penn-
sylvania (36),- Michigan (19), New Jersey (16),
Wyoming (3). Total 4 states and 74 votes.
Mr. Landon should carry Massachusetts (17),
South Dakota (4), Rhode Island (4), Connecti-
cut (8), and Kansas (9). Total 5 states and 42
Mr. Landon will carry Maine (5), New Hamp-
shire (4), and Vermont (3). Total 3 states and
12 votes.

Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Fred-
erick Stock, Conductor
43-Alexander Scriabin (b Moscow.

l' -XI; lLG 3 1 V1 lV. 1i' Y
1872; d. Moscow, 1915). "Art as re-'
ligion and religion as something in-
volving the conception of art"-suchl
was the creed of Alexander Scriabin.
A pianistic prodigy at the age ofI
five, he began to compose three years'
later. In many ways, the story of his'
career and artistic adventures is re-'
mindful of that of Wagner. Like the
latter, Scriabin was emotionally hy-
per-sensitive; as a boy, he wrote dark,
sanguinary tragedies, and sought to
translate reality in terms of artistic
impressions. Also like Wagner, .his
early compositions were of a style
definitely opposed to that of his latter
works, consisting entirely of piano
pieces strongly indicative of a Chop-
inesque influence.
Beginning, however, with Opus 24,
a Reverie for orchestra, Scriabin's {
work began to take on a broader and
maturer character, and gradually to!
assume that aspect of intense ex-
pressionism and symbolism which
marks his last three symphonic scores,
The Divine Poem, The Poem of Ec-
stacy, and Prometheus. In this latter
work the "light-keyboard" is used,
to throw on a screen a kaleidoscopic
succession of colors intended to en-
hance the sensuous-and, for Scria-
bin, the symbolic-impressiveness of
the music. A fourth and yet more
mystical work, to have been called
Mystery, in which not only sounds
and colors, but scents and motions
as well, were to be utilized to the end
of artistic expression and symbolism,
Scriabin did not live to complete.
The Divine Poem is the first and4
least radlcally elaborate of this group.
In it, Scriabin ceases to view music
as purely an aesthetic or emotional
delight, and endows it with the pur-
pose of a mystical rite. For us to
accept the premises of the composer
is probably impossible, but unless wej
meet him halfway and try to under-
stand his point of view, the work will
contain little of beauty or signifi-
cance for us.

F IT WEREN'T for the fact that
there are probably some people
who take the Detroit Times seriously, its latest
excursion into red-baiting would be moderately
amusing. Hearing that some ten members of the
faculty had voted for Browder in The Daily poll
this week, it rushed out Vera Brown, a very
skilled writer in the type of journalism employed
by the Times, to dig up the names of those men
who voted for Browder.
Unfortunately, Miss Brown was unable to dis-
cover them, and so the Times was limited to the
noncommital banner: SIFT RED VOTES AT
U.M. Had Miss Brown been successful, it might
have run a big front page box with the names
and a caption (printed h red) exclaiming: THIS
was too bad. It would have been quite a coup.
But Miss Brown did the next best thing. She
called on all the Regents of the University and
tried to get them to make supporting statements,
and in one case succeeded.
The Times certainly is wide awake.
To the editor of the Times, we extend an invi-
tation to come out to Ann Arbor and attend va-
rious political science and economics classes to
determine for himself whether there is any of
this dreadful indoctrination in the University.
Then, if _he finds it, he's got something. But
until then, we believe that members of the fac-
ulty are not like prisoners deprived of their cit-
izenship, and still have the right. to vote just as
any other citizen has.
The Use Of A
Split Ballot.. .
WE WISH to emphasize again, as we
did at the tinie of our declaration
in favor of President Roosevelt's reelection, that
The Daily is in no sense a Democratic paper.
And because it is not, we are urging that our
readers who vote consider the influences of a
split ballot on Nov. 3.
No party, especially in this election, has a mo-
nopoly on character and ability. State and
local offices are so utterly divorced from national
offices that there is no connection between one's
choice for President and one's choice for gov-
ernor, legislator or county drain commissioner.
Even in the case of Congressmen, we are urging
that the men be considered as individuals, for
their attitudes, programs and philosophies, rather
than as partisans.
As we have pointed out, both of our guber-
natorial . candidates, Mr. Fitzgerald, the Re-
publican, and Mr. Murphy, the Democrat, have
failed to discuss really pertinent issues. That is
