Debaters Will Meet
Purdue And Olio
With two victories already to their
credit in practice debates with Wayne
University, the Michigan debating
teams encounter Purdue and Ohio
State on Dec. 10 at Ann Arbor and
Columbus respectively.
The affirmative team composed of
Robert V. Rosa, '39, Ronald Freed-
man, '39 and Harry Shneiderman,
'38, speaking in that order, will de-
bate Purdue on the subject "Re-
solved: That All Electric Utilities
Should Be Governmentally Owned
And Operated." The negative team
composed of Marvin W. Reider, '39,
Nathaniel Holtzman, '39 and Wil-
liam A. Sentner, '38, will debate the
same question with Ohio State.
The teams were chosen after a
series of elimination debates which
began in early October with an or-
iginal squad of 35 candidates.

C.I.O. Expulsion Action Most
Significant, Elliott Concludes

Protest Of Support Given
Unlikely From Members
Professor Believes
The most significant action of the
recently-concluded American Feder-
ation of Labor convention in Tampa,
Fla., is the support given the execu-
tive council in its expulsion of the
Committee for Industrial Organiza-
tion affiliates, in the opinion of Prof.
Margaret Elliott of the economics de-
The possibility of A.F. of L. mem-
bers throughout the United .States
protesting the support given William
Green is slight, Professor Elliott said,
"because representatives were prob-
ably sent to Tampa with instructions
from their constituents, who knew
that the split in unionized labor
would be the predominant issue of
the convention."
Despite this apparently strong sup-
port, Professor Elliott held it not atl
all unlikely that the rift in labor
would be healed becausQ this sup-
port was in many cases given with
the quaification that consistent peace
overtures be oade. Professor Elliott
believes that the executive council
will continue efforts toward concilia-
The bulk of sentiment in favor of
pacifying the C.I.O. unions even at
the expense of appreciable conces-'
sions is coming from union members
throughout the country who feel that
the strength of labor will be consid-
erably weakened if labor is to remain
divided, Professor Elliott said.
"One important question in the
final result of this present struggle
is whether the C.I.O. is united on the
basis of common conviction for in-
dustrial unionization," Professor El-
liott said. "If conceivably one after
the other of the C.I.O. unions would

drop away, Lewis would be forced to
Another important consideration
is the financial backing of Lewis. His
program is one that requires strong
financial backing, and it is ,a ques-
tion of how long this can last with-
out the full numerical and- financial
strength of the American Federation
of Labor behind it."
Professor Elliott said that "a split
in United States labor for some time
to come would appreciably weaken
the influence of labor because or-
ganized labor is not numerically
strong enough. A labor movement
is naturally stronger if it can present
a united front."
The question offered by this labor
split seems to Professor Elliott to be
one of "the relative importance of
personal differences of opinion as to
whether unions should be organized
along craft or industrial lines, as
against the importance of the ad-
vancement of the cause of all work-
Also significant in the A.F. of L.
convention was Federation's reitera-
tion that it would be a non-partisan-
organization politically, Professor El-
liott believes. "This means that the
American Federation of Labor is not
for the present at least, going in for
the formation of a labor party."
Prof. William D. Revelli, director of
the Varsity Band, returned Monday
night from a trip which took him to
the state band clinics of South Da-
kota and Indiana. At Rapid City,
SD., Professor Revelli conducted the
all-state high school band of South
Dakota and at Elkhart, Ind. he con-
ducted a clinic for high school in-

period had shown an increase of ap-
proximately one-third over last year.
According to the latest report of
the Bureau, enrollments in the busi-
ness placement division totalled 1,077
for the year ending Nov. 1, an in-
crease of 30 over the preceding year.
Placements in the same period in-

In 1936 the Bureau received 1,558
