Candidates For The Senate Election Present Their Plal


(EDITOR'S NOTE: Fllowing arc the
complete platform ;ub3Itted by three
patties and 10 unattached candidates
ifd rpreentng 47 of te 64 candidates
'~r the Stude nt Senate)
My idea of the Student Senate is
that of an organization which will
serve as a medium through which
the will of the student body of the
'University of Michigan can be or-
ganized and made to wield some real
force and influence in determining
reforms and innovations, regarding
the government of student life on the
campus and in Ann Arbor. Rather
than state my views on national and
international questions I would like
to say that I am more concerned with
questions directly connected with the
present situation at the University of
Michigan. One think I strongly ad-
vocate is the establishment of an im-
partial court for the trial of student
misdemeanors. Anything to alievate
the unjust system f Justicoes of the
Peace, which we have recently seen
in operation. - Many such changes
can be wrought with organized stu-
dnt support.
Thos. B. Adams. Jr.
Guided by "the belief that govern-
ment should exist in the interests of
the economic and social well-being of
the majority," candidates of the Unit-
ed Liberal Coalition support the fol-
lowing platform:
In view of the failure of competi-
tion as a regulator of our economic
life we favor the extension of effective
government regulation and public
planning in so far as they prove
necessary, feasible and beneficial.
1. Confronted by the destruction
which competition has brought about
of our national resources, we favor
soil conservation, reforestation, regu-
lation of oil production, government
ownership of coal mines, and the
extension of government power pro-
2. We support federal legislation
to "put a floor under wages and a
ceiling over hours."
3:We support adequate appro-.
priations for the work of the National
Labor Relations Board and the firm
establishment of the principle of col-
lective bargaining.
4. We favor increased farm credit,
measures to alleviate the plight of the
growing number of sharecroppers and
dispossessed farmers, and a farm bill
which will make possible prices suff-
cient to cover the cost of agricultural
2. We favor long range planning
of public housing and slum clearance,
as well as all other constructive public
6. We favor government action to
curb monopoly or big business which
is enabled by its economic control
to operate contrary to the interests
of rural and urban consumers.
7. We favor improved and en-
larged unemployment insurance
plans, as well as old age pensions,
health and accident insurance, and
full and adequate relief for the un-
8. We favor the ratification of
the Child Labor Amendment.
We favor consumers and producers I
In the field of education, which is
of spccial concern to us students,
we are in favor of ever broadening
and increasing the educational op-
portunities for all.
1. We favor increased federal aid
to college and high school students
in need, more specifically an exten-
son of the NYA in the American
Youth Act.
2. We favor equal rights and op-
portunities for Negroes.
3, We oppose any intcrierencc

with academic freedom,
4. We favor the creation of a
federal department of education.
5. We favor the federal govern-
ment's taking the lead in equalizing
educational opportunity in the ele-
mentary and secondary schools of the
several states.
Civil Liberties
-Mindful of the repressive moves
that 'have occuired with alarming
frequency to crush political and civil
liberties, we pledge our full support
to the defense of democratic rights in
all spheres of democratic rights in
1. The d sarming of corporation
armories and the prohibition of in-
dustrial espionage and other forms of
intimidailon: or interference with
labor's righ( to organize independent-
2. W, su port the anti-lynching
3. Increased appropriation for the
extension of Congressional investiga-
tion in the field of civil liberties.
4, evcere penalties for public oll =

Students Invited ' oWatch
Counting, Like That Used
In New York Election
1. All ballots will be thoroughly
mixed and then sorted in packages
according to the first choice ex-
pressed on each. The total number
of valid ballots shall be divided by
the figure 2 to give the quota neces,
sary for election. If any candidate
shall have receiveft a number of first
choice votes equal to or exceeding the
quota, such candidate shall be de-
clared elected, and his surplus over
the quota, if any, shall be distributed
to the second choice candidates by
the use of the following formula:
Number transferred equals surplus
times candidate's second choice vote
divided by the total number of sec-
ond choices. Thus, if candidates
Jones receives 42 votes and the quota
is 25, he has a surplus of 17, which
would be distributed by the above
formula. If Smith had obtained 11
second choices among these 42 bal-
lots marked with Joies as the first
choice, Smith would receive a num-
ber of transferred ballots as follows:
Seventeen (total surplus available
for distribution) times 11 (number of
second choices for Smith on Jones'
balolts) divided by 42 (total number
of Jones' ballots).
2. After the distribution of the sur-
plus votes of all candidates receiving
a number of first choice votes equal
to all candidates receiving a number
of first choice votes equal to or ex-
ceeding the quota, provided there are
still vacancies to be filled, the can-
didate receiving the lowest number
of first choice votes is declared de-
feated and his ballots are transferred
to the package of the candidate who
is marked as second choice on the
ballot. This process of defeating un-
til the lowest candidate and trans-'
ferriing his votes is continued until
32 student senators have been elected
with the quota or until there remain
only enough candidates to fill the re-
maining number of vacancies.
Specl Rules
a. The ballots will be brought in the
ballot box to a central counting place
to be later designated by the Director
of Elections. The responsibility for
bringing in the ballot box will rest
with the clerk who has charge of the
polling place at the time voting
ceases, that is, 7:30 p.m.
b. The ballots after being distribut-
ed into packages on the basis of the
first choice, shall be numbered to give
a check on the total number of bal-
lots credited to any one candidate. If
additional ballots are added to a can-
didate's package as the result of
transfers of elected candidate's sur-
pluses or of defeated candidate's
votes, these too, shall be numbered
consecutively. /
c. In the distribution of elected
candidate's surpluses, the specific
ballots transferred after the number
to be transferred has been determined
in accordance with the above formula,
shall be those on the top of the candi-
date's package, that is, the highest
numbered ones.
d. The count will be public and all
interested persons are invited to be
e. Cases of dispute over the validity
of any ballot cast, or over the count-
ing system shall be decided by the
Directors of Elections.

JJ'ork Relief Projects
The Conservative party is in favor
of continuing work relief projects in
that they are necessary in view of the
present condciti on of the country.
However, they should be administered
more economically and efficiently.
All these points may not seem to
coincide with the traditional conserv-
ative point of view. However, basically
our policies are conservative in that
we arc advocates of the eapitalistie
economic system and the political phi-
loophy of a democratic goveinient
of checks and balances. This country
has prospered and grown under our
present constitution. True, we have
made some modifications, but they
are possible within the present struc-
ture of the government, maintaining
the capitalistic system.
