Spanish Fascist troops yesterday
(Wednesday) stormed their way to

cialist government was shakenup to
include four syndicalist ministers.
Insurgent airplanes droning high
over the capital and the booming of
artillery on the nearing battle lines
sounded the proximity of the invaders
to Madrid's population.
South of the capital, the insurgents
drove their advance units to a point
only two miles from Getafe, south-
ern suburb of Madrid.
One more attack, Fascist military
leaders said, and their troops would
be charging toward the very gates of
the capital.
In the southwest, insurgents
brought up armored cars and baby

S.W.F. To Meet
For First Time
Today To Elect
The Student Workers Federation
will convene for its first general
meeting of the year at 8:30 p.m. to-
day in the Unitarian Church to elect
officers, ratify the constitution, and

to discuss housing.
The organization with its purpose
to better student working conditions
was started the latter part of last
semester, gaining more than 200
members within three weeks.
This year members have shown an
active response toward making plans
to perpetuate the organization. Al-
ready student employees of local eat-
ing establishments are organizing
themselves into units of the Federa-
tion. In the meeting today, to which
all students who are working part or
all, of their way through college, are
urged to attend, grievance and in-
vestigation committees will be named.
Last year faculty members and pro-
prietors joined students in backing
the organization.
In a mimeographed bulletin issued
yesterday, the Federation gave these
three -reasons for student workers co-
operating: 1. Opportunity to improve
working conditions. 2. Ability to
bargain on equal terms with em-
ployer, 3. Collective bargaining.

Dorr Says Roosevelt's Victory
Is Not A Blanket Endorsement

S:ys Surveys Show That
People ,Are Not Behind
All Of New Deal
The overwhelming victory of Presi-
dent Roosevelt over Gov. Alf M. Lan-
don of Kansas in Tuesday's election
should not be taken as a mandate for
the President to go ahead with all
the policies of the New Deal Admin-
istration, Prof. Harold M. Dorr of the
political science - department said in
an interview yesterday.
The support given to the Demo-
cratic incumbent was not, in the
opinion of Professor Dorr, a blanket
endorsement of everything that the
present Administration has attempt-
ed. The survey conducted by the
American Institutecof PublicOpin-
ion, Professor Dorr continued, showed
that feeling was fairly evenly divided
on the questions of government
spending, judicial review and admin-
istration of relief.
"Not since 1820 has a presidential
candidate received such support at
the polls," Professor Dorr said. "In
'Men's Council
Acts To Settle
Election Fight
Two Places On Soph Prom
Committee To Be Given
To Washtenaw Men
Wally Hook, '39, president of the
sophomore class, will be "advised"
by the Men's Council to appoint two
Washtenaw Party men to the Sopho-
more Prom committee, it was decided
in a meeting of the council last night.
Action was taken on the basis of an
election protest filed with Miller G.
Sherwood, '37, president of the coun-
cil, by Robert Vander Pyl, '39, caucus
chairman of the Washtenaw Party.
Both Vander Pyl and Vincent Butter-
ly, '39, caucus chairman of the State
Street Party, testified before the
The Washtenaw Party's complaint
was of the alleged employment of a
"sandwich man" to traverse the Di-
agonal on the day of the election with
State Street advertising, an act illegal
under University rules.
Butterly admitted duplicity in the
illegal act. No representative of the
Sophomore Independent Party, which1
Vander Pyl also charged with illegal
campaigning, was present.
The possibility of Washtenaw
Party sponsoring any illegal acts was
held by the council, but an investi-
gation failed to reveal guilt. The ad-
visability of reholding the election]
was discussed by the council and, al-
though failure of Hook to comply
with the cduncil's "advice" may lead
to another election, it was felt that
the violation was not serious enough
to warrant a reelection.
Sherwood will inform caucus
chairman of all campus parties this
week of rules to govern future elec-
tions, which are as follows:
1. No posters, handbills or signs
of any nature will be allowed on Uni-
versity property, which includes dor-
mitories, the League, the Union and
similar living and recreational cen-
ters sponsored by the University.
2. An exception to the previous
rule is that handbills will be allowed
in the room of the election on the day
of the election.
3. Anyone whose name is not in-
cluded in the student directory will
under no circumstances be allowed
to vote.
4. Identification cards will be re-
quired from all voters.
5. All protests must be submitted
to the president of the Men's Coun-
cil with 24 hours after the election.

the election held in that year, James
Monroe received all but one electoral
vote, that going to his opponent, John
Quincy Adams."
"The type, of mass movement that
was evidenced in Tuesday's election
is somewhat similar to the movement
during the Jacksonian period," Pro-
fessor Dorr said, "but there is no
evidence; upon the basis of incom-
plete returns, to feel that a new kind,
of party alignment upon class lines is
imminent in the near future."
No Rural Urban Division
Professor Dorr did not feel. that the
results of the present election repre-
sent any division between the rural
and urban elements. He stated that
it was a different type of division,
with millions of workers staunchly
backing Roosevelt.
As the first reason forbthe amazing
total of votes garnered by the Presi-
dent Professor Dorr mentioned the
personal magnetism of the successful
candidate. Also, he continued, the
great number of votes cast for the
President were in direct answer to
Mr. Roosevelt's radio query-"Are youa
better off now than you were before?"
The banking and credit policies of
the President were also responsible for
a great number of the ballots which
served " to swell the tide of victory,
Professor Dorr remarked. Likewise
the fear of many people on relief as to1
what would happen to them if thej
administration of relief were put in
other hands. The people on relief
were not necessarily opposed to Lan-
don, Professor Dorr said, but they
probably figured it would be best tor
leave well enough alone.
Relief Important Issue1
The small merchants and shop-
owners, a group that has been noneI
too friendly toward many of ther
New Deal's policies, especially the3
NRA, in the past, also helped toc
build up the margin of the Demo-t
cratic victory, Professor Dorr said. He
explained that the small business men
were afraid that if Landon were to
win, the burden of relief would be
thrust back upon the community's
shoulders again.
The Republicans made very many1
serious tactical errors during the"
campaign, Professor Dorr said, and
these mistakes were partly respon-
sible for the crushing defeat received
at the hands of the New Dealers.
"Too little attention was given toI
the building up of efficient local or-
ranizations in the cmmulnitiP" Prn-<

Mayor Herbert Brown of Anchor-

All peace negotiations were at a

The chief stumbling block in the
peace negotiations was whether the
unions would furnish "safety crews"
for strikebound coast ships.
Union men still provided skeleton
crews cn most ships but employers
said they were leaving others. Union
observers reported this was because
employers were planning to "black-
list" some union ship's officers.

Easy Victory
In Washtenaw
Every County Office Taken
By Republicans As Heavy
Vote Is Cast Here
Washtenaw County went over-
whelmingly Republican Tuesday as
complete returns from the 36 pre-
cincts in the county gave a plurality
to every Republican candidate.
All of the 11 Republican incum-
bents in county offices were reelected
by comfortable margins in the record
vote of about 30,000 in the county.
13,139 of the votes were cast in the
seven wards in Ann Arbor.
Sheriff Jacob B. Andres, running
for his fourth term, led the Repub-
lican victory in the county with a
total of 18,806 votes to 9,614 for Ezra
Tisch, Democrat.
Probate Judge Jay G. Pray was re-
turned to office with 16,083 votes to
12,367 for Harold Golds, Democrat.
Judge Pray carried both the sixth and
seventh "faculty" wards by substan-
tial majorities with the exception of
the first precinct of the seventh ward
where he held a slight advantage,
652 to 522.
County Clerk Emmett M. Gibb was

Coughlin Calls
FDR History's
DETROIT, Nov. 4.-(P)-The Rev.
Charles E. Coughlin said today the
46-state Democratic landslide indi-
cates that "President Roosevelt can
be dictator if he wants to."
The radio priest, who criticized
Roosevelt during the election cam-
paign and threw the support of his
National Union for Social Justice be-
hind Willam Lemke, Union Party
presidential candidate, told newsmen:
"The minority is now purely theor-
etical. We have a one-party system.
President Roosevelt has more power
than any man ever had in the world.

In the future, historians will devote
less time to Caesar and Napoleon and
more to Franklin Roosevelt.
"I hope that God will bless him and
the Holy Ghost inspire him not to
misuse his power.'
Commenting there "still was a pos-
sibility" that his NUSJ would make
a "comeback," Father Coughlin said
its future was "the same as the Re-
publican party with one difference-
that the Republican party is bank-
rupt in intelligence and can never
make a comeback under its present
organization and line of action."

Roosevelt State Landslide
Greater This Year Than
In 1932 Election
- DETROIT, Nov. 4.-(A)- The most
impressive victory in Michigan his-
tory was recorded to the credit of the
Democratic Party today.
Under the banner of the New Deal,
President Roosevelt surpassed his
landslide run of four years ago in
Tuesday's g e n e r a 1 election. He
smashed through supposed outstate
Republican strongholds with ifnpres-
sive strength. Behind the national
ticket spearhead the whole Demo-
cratic state ticket trailed to victory.
Preference for Roosevelt extended
from the Upper Peninsula to the in-
dpstrial counties of the south. Set-
ting almost as fast a pace, Prentiss
VI. Brown, Democratic candidate for
United States Senator, led Wilber M.
Brucker, his Republican opponent
>utstate as well as in Wayne County.
The President's Michigan lead over
Gov. Alf M. Landon hovered around
the 300,000 mark. Four years ago he
beat Herbert Hoover by only 131,806
votes. With less than 250 of the
state's 3,470 precincts missing. Brown
was more than 175,000 ahead of
Frank Murphy, New Deal candi-
date for governor, rode the Demo-
3ratic wave to success. He lost to
Governor Fitzgerald outstate but an
avalanche of Wayne county ballots
pushed him into a comfortable lead
of around 50,000.
The Democratic state ticket, dis-
playing amazing strength in territory
which had been conceded prior to the
election to the Republicans, romped
into office. They ran much closer
to their opponents than had been
expected in the rural areas and drew
three to two and two to one majorities
tn Detroit and Wayne county.
massive Democratic majority re-
ceived marching orders today to as-
semble in the new Congress two
months from tomorrow to pass on
Roosevelt legislative proposals.
Late compilations of election re-
turns showed that when President
Roosevelt next addresses a joint ses-
sion of the Senate and House, probab-
ly in January, he will look into the
eyes of perhaps the largest number
of Democrats ever to sit on Capitol
Hill at one time.
Such a topheavy majority was in-
ethat a new assignment of
seats was inevitable. Even before the
election the Democrats occupied a
large share of the normally Republi-
can space in both chambers.

Opening his speech in the Union
last night by terming the Nov. 3 elec-
tion "not an election, but a census, in
as much as an election calls for some
sort of a contest," Prof. Preston W.
Slosson of the history department
gave an interpretation of the voting
to a standing room audience.
"The American system of govern-
ment is a two-party system, which is
the best of the party systems even
though it has many faults," Professor
Slosson told the audience. "A one-
party system, like those in Germany
and Italy and Russia is practically
tyranny. A multi-party system as in
France means instability. The two-
party system has among its defects
hypocrisy. Too often party loyalty
becomes an end in itself.
"In this campaign the issue of the
Republican Party was state's rights
-the Jeffersonian principles on
which the opposite party is founded.
The Democratic Party supported cen-
tralization. Thus the Republicans
ran on a Democratic platform and the
Democrats ran on a Republican plat-
form. And the people voted straight
party tickets without regard for the
principles involved."
He said that the campaign was one
of "middle of the roaders." Landon
was described as a right center can-
