The Century wallpaper plant in Decatur, Ill., closed by a sit-down
strike, prepared to resume operations after the last 47 workers evacuated
the plant and submitted to arrest for contempt of court. Shown is

strikers as they emerged from the plant.

These days everybody stops HomerI
Caldwell, '37, on the street and re-
peats the question:
"Where's Sandy?"
When they learn that he died of
distemper, that he lay for a week,E
his big tawny body stretched on ant
old rug, trembled when he attemptedN
to rise on his legs, and then died,t
they tell Homer they're sorry.1
Sandy was one of the most widely-
acquainted dogs on the campus thef
past year. He was a three-year-old
St. Bernard, stood three feet high,
and weighed 155 pounds. He was1
Homer's inseparable companion.
Homer lives with Prof. William H.:
Hobbs out on Hill Street, and to that1
eminent geologist, the death of Sandyc
brought back memories of the pass-
ing in 1930 of a beloved Collie of the
same name. Professor Hobbs didn't go
to his classes for three days.
Homer's Sandy lies buried in the
back yard beside the Sandy that went
along on a Greenland expedition.
Homer, clad in his forestry school
khaki, and Sandy with a package of
meat in his mouth-his supper-
was a familiar sight. The huge St.
Bernard went along on surveying
trips, on hikes through the woods,
along to every class. And after a;
day of such scholarly pursuits, slept
at the foot of his master's bed.
Sandy had a lot of friends but,
he was a one-man dog. It doesn't
seem natural, somehow, to see Homer
striding across the diagonal at dusk
with no Sandy, running gracefully,
close at his side.

He Believes Position Is
Simpler Than In Time
CopelandHeld Office
Prof. Walter Sadler of the Engin-
eering College contradicted yesterday
the recent opinion of Senator Royal
S. Copeland, (Dem. N.Y.) who said
that "being mayor of Ann Arbor is
a 'tough job'." Professor Sadler, now
seeking Copeland's- old job, said that
the office of mayor would not be in-
compatible with his present position.
Professor Sadler pointed out that
the duties of the office are now much
simpler than in the days of 1901 and
1903 when Copeland was elected on
the Republican ticket. Copeland gave
out the above quoted statement when
he was recently approached to run for
mayor of New York City under his
present Democratic allegiance.
52 Persons On Committees
"At present," Professor Sadler
said, "most of the actual work here
is done by the 15 members of the city
council and by 11 city commissions.
There are 52 people who make up the
commissions, which are also part time
jobs and which draw their members
from business people, professional
men, workers, and the University fac-
ulty." He added that the only full-
time elective offices are those of city
clerk and city assessor.
Professor Sadler said that the only

professor ever to hold the office of
mayor was the late Dr. Cyrus G. Darl-
ing of the medical and dental school,
who was elected in 1894. For a sum-
mary of the other incumbents since
that day he showed that the mayors
were respectively: merchants, lum-
bermen, doctors, attorneys, an organ
manufacturer, a wagon maker, a
judge and most recently an oil dealer
and at present former controller of
the University, Robert Campbell.
Several Professors In Service
"There is no reason why a profes-
sor would not make an equally good
mayor," Professor Sadler asserted.
"There are several faculty men now
who are in city politics."
Professor Sadler currently is the
president of the city council. He said
the reason he went in for politics was
because he thought everyone ought
to take an interest in his community
and be "civic conscious." He stated
that he felt that he qualified for the
position which he will seek in Mon-
day's primary because he is trained
as both engineer and a lawyer.
He stated that he does not know of
anything at present that he intends
to do in the way of a platform. He
declared that he is in favor of the
present commission system and thinks
that it is an especially good organ of
government for a town in which there
is a combination of university and
business men who are willing to offer
their voluntary services in municipal
