Spendm Peak
Seen In Spring
Most Of Work-Producing
Projects To Be Started
By The First Of January
Maximum Payroll
Will Come In April
WASHINGTON, Oct. 8.-44)-Fed-
eral statisticians charted a spring
peak today for the business stimula-
tion efforts of the current spending
By Jan. 1, they said, most of the
work-producing projects should be
under way and by April 1 the maxi-
mum payrolls on Federal andFed-
erally-financed projects should be at-
Not counting themulti-million dol-
lar lending activities of the Recon-
struction Finance Corp., the Govern-
ment proposes to spend $9,000,000,000
this fiscal year-the largest peace-
time budget in history ge
Actual disbursements so far since
July 1, the beginning of the fiscal
year, amounted to $2,398,511,000,
which was $906,926,000 in excess of
income. From July 1 to Oct. 6 last
year, expenditures were $2,100,553,000
and the deficit only $359,198,000. By
next June 30, the deficit for this year
is scheduled to reach $4,000,000,000.
Aside from the ordinary activities
of the Government the bulk of the
huge budget this year is going into
WPA payrolls, PWA projects and
Naval construction.
WPA, by spending $598,495,000 in
three months, has built its rolls from
2,806,000 to a record high of 3,120,036.
At this time last year, the relief rolls
were under 2,000,000 and the cost had
been only $354,703,000.
The WPA roll is expected by some
authorities to rise gradually to about
3,200,000 during the winter and slack-
en off in the spring when, they say,
the combined influence of better busi-
ness and seasonal jobs should provide
private employment for many now on
work relief.
Before WPA spending starts taper-
ing off, however, Public Works Pro-
jects should be picking up momentum.

'Mayerling' Showing
"Mayerling," the French film
version of the love story of Arch-
duke Rudolph of Austria and Ma-
rie Vetsera will be held i over at

a final presentation at 8:15 p.m.
tomorrow, it was announced last
night by Mitchell Raskin, '39BAd,

Boyer and Dannielle Darrieux has
already drawn a larger audience
than any other brought here in
the history of the Art Cinema
League, according to Raskin. He
said that more than 500 prospective
ticket-buyers were turned away at
the box-office Friday and Satur-
day as a result of a sell-out both
those nights.
"Mayerling" received the New
York Critics' Award as the best
foreign film of the year.

Freshmen Will
Continue Talks
On Personality
The acquisition of desirable person-,
ality traits will be discussed by H. Y.
McClusky of the education school at
a second in a series of freshman
roundtables to be held at 4 p.m. to-
day at Lane Hall.

After his talk the group will be
divided into small discussion groups
to be led by upper classmen. This
method of discussion is followed in
order to permit every member of the
audience to present his point of view
and to facilitate informal conversa-
In his talk last week Mr. McClusky
named three undesirable personality
types; the cynical, unsmiling pseudo-
sophisticate, the bossy domineering
dictator and the non-sensitive egotist.
The sympathetic listener and the posi-
tive, appreciative types ,he stated, are
generally very well liked.
Good personality traits in them-
selves are not sufficient to insure pop-
ularity, according to Mr. McClusky,
but the manner in which they are
mingled 'is an important factor. In
his speech tomorrow, he will explain
the techniques for developing a pleas-
sing personality.

Anyone But FDR Is Consensus
Of Opinion, Reporters Discover

Editor's Note: Three times a week,
Morton L. Linder and Harry L. Sonne-
born will present thi~s cross-section of
campus opinion on topics of general
interest. Persons questioned are chosen
at random by the reporters.
THE QUESTION: Whom would you

for President in, 1940, regardless of
THE PLACE: Angell Hall steps.
THE ANSWERS: Prof. Paul Cun-
cannon, political science department:
"From the men who probably will be
available in 1940, probably the best
fitted man will be Sen. Arthur A..
Vandenberg. Vandenberg's 10 years'
experience on the two most important
committees in the U. S. Senate-
Foreign Affairs and Finance-have
given him a real grasp of public prob-
lems. He is an exceptionally well-bal-
anced individual and has his feet on
the ground.
"In the event that he wins in Nov-
ember, in Pennsylvania, and he prob-
ably will, Judge Arthur H. James

Clarence Klopsic, '41:. "Thomas
Dewey--aggressive, fearless, ambi-
tious. The remarkable job this Michi-
gan man has done in cleaning up
crime and rackets in New Yo'k proves,
I think, his ability. I have no doubt
that he would bring this same fear-
less driving force to the White House."
Rhoma Heal, '41: "I would suggest
'Pretty Boy' Paul V. McNutt. He has
a lot of experience along the line of
politics and I believe he would be
sincere in trying to do his best for
the good of the people. Incidentally,
he is from Indiana."
Jeanne Abraham, '42: "Anyone but
Roosevelt. Why not give Hoever a
chance? He did his best when he
was in office and I'm sure he could do
even better now."
Maurice Hoffman, '39: "I favor the
