by a general 3-1 vote in the November
. In the recently completed primar-
ies, Washtenaw County cast more
than 10,000 ballots, above the general
vote here even in presidential year,
with nearly 8,000 asking for Republi-
can ballots. Every candidate who won
the nomination rolled up a bigger
total than his prospective opponent
in the final election, led by former
Gov. Wilber M. Brucker with 6,242
votes against a total of 833 for his
Democratic opponent in the race for
United States Senator, Prentiss M.
Ann Arbor, with eight of the coun-
ty's 36 precincts, cast a total vote of
5,569 against 4,866 polled by the
county. The city reversed the coun-
ty's choice in four instances, and was
itself overridden in only one in-
The outstanding instance was in
the Democratic contest for United
States Senator, where Prof. John H.
Muyskens carried Washtenaw Coun-
ty over Brown, 990 to 833. The con-
test in the county gave Brown a 428

which returned Muyskens pluralities.
Not a single precinct went Demo-
cratic, although Lodi, usually on the
Democratic side of the fence, cast
only 37 Republican ballots over 34
Democratic votes. Exact opposites
were the second precinct of Ann Ar-
bor's second ward, known as the
"Bloody Seventh" from its traditional
ability to report in last and upset any
close contest, where 1004 Republicans
and 197 Democrats voted, and Sharm
on township, where not a single Dem-
ocratic vote was cast in a total of 47.
Regent Charles F. Hemans of the
University's Board of Regents, run-
ning for the Lieutenant Governor's
nomination on the Democratic tick-
et, was the choice of Ann Arbor over
Leon D. Case by a vote of 442 to 411,
but this was the single instance in
which the county overruled Ann Ar-
bor, and Case got a plurality of 748 to

Internationally renowned musical.
organizations, famous and distin-
guished soloists and purely amateur
choral units of University students
all combine talents in Ann Arbor each
spring in the annual May Festival,
one of the outstanding musical fes-
tivals in the United States.
For 42 years, the May Festival has
continually attracted outstanding
figures in American music for its
concert programs.
Another great program is now be-
ing assembled for the 1937 festival,
one which is expected to surpass in
splendor and magnitude its 42 pred-
Festival concerts present music-
goers with an opportunity to hear
vocal and instrumental soloists, an
outstanding symphony orchestra,
classic choral works, and, each sea-
son, the world premier of some or-
chestral or choral composition,
who were not nominated when state-
wide returns were tabulated.
George P. McCallum, running for
the twelfth district (Washtenaw and
Oakland counties) State Senatorial
nomination as a Republican, got a
lead of nearly 5,000 in 'this county
over Ralph T. Keeling, Oakland
County man, which dwindled to 600
votes when Oakland's 107 precincts
were counted in, but his local support
assured him of the nomination.

The brick building on Maynard Street shown above starts its fifth year this September as the birthplace
of all student publications. Here the Gargoyle, the Michiganensian, Contemporary, Freshman Handbook,
and The Daily are composed.
