Farm Speech'
By GOP Head
Address By John Hamilton
Draws Mixed Reaction
In Senate And House
Borah Takes Issuek
WASHINGTON, Oct. 18 -(p)- A
statement by John D. M. Hamilton,
Republican national chairman, that
the administration's farm program
had collapsed, produced a mixed re-
action today.
Several Democratic members of
Congress dissented sharply; some oth-
er legislators said the crop control
program had failed to accomplish its
purpose and that other m'eans of
assisting the farmer would have to
be found.
Hamilton told a farm belt audience
at Montpelier, that declines in prices
of wheat, cotton, corn and other pro-
ducts during the past year showed
,hat the administration program had
broken down. Democratic senators re-
plied that Hamilton should compare
resent farm income with thht of the
Hoover Administration.
"If Chairman Hamilton has a clean
ut solution for the farm problem, let
him bring it out in the open," said
Senator Pepper (D-Fla.), ardent New

(4) I believe that definite action

Donald Counihan
Liberal Coalition'
We favor:
1. A greater measure of student
government on this campus and the
curtailment of faculty and adminis-
tration control over student extra-

that seek to destroy or curtail them.
2. We support the anti-lynching
3. We condemn the vicious and mis-
leading attacks of the Dies Commit-
tee and the reactionary press on in-
dividuals and organizations active in
humanitarian causes.
1. The support of progressive state
and national candidates who repre-
sent the interests of the farmers, pro-
fessionals, small business men and
wage-earners. We favor the elec-
tion of liberal adherents to the New
Deal and endorse the reelection of
Governor Murphy as an outstanding

>Iamilton, in his appeal to farmers,
said the New Deal was in an "in-
congruous situation." He said Secre-
tary Wallace and the Agriculture De-
partment were forcing farmers to re-
luce acreage and marketings while
Secretary Hull and the State Depart-
Went, through reciprocal trade pacts,
were lowering tariffs and inviting for-
eigners to send grain and meat here.
The Republican leader said this was
an "economy of scarcity for the
American farmer" while trade pacts
offered this country "as a free market
for the world."
Senator Borah (R-Idaho), Dean of
he small band of Republican Sena-
ors, said he agreed that the Adminis-
ration's farm program had collapsed,
but took issue with Hamilton's criti-
ism of Secretary Wallace's proposal
o subsidize consumption by low-in-
bome persons in the United States.
Hamilton had said this proposal by
Wallace was an "idea to end all New
teal ideas" and would fail to aid the
farmer while costing more than
$1,000,000,000 annually.

Guided by "the belief that govern-
ment should exist in the interests of
the economic and social well-being of
the majority" I support the follow-
ing program:
In view of the failure of competi-
tion as a regulator of our economic
life, I favor the extension of effective
government regulation and public
planning in so far as they prove fea-
sible, necessary, and beneficial.
In the field of education, which is
of special interest to students, I favor
the broadening and increasing of ed-
ucational opportunities for all.
Mindful of the repressive moves
that have occurred with alarming fre-
quency to crush political and civil
liberties, I pledge support of the de-
fense of democratic rights in all
I favor a popular political party
which represents the interests of
farmers, professiohals, small business
men, and wage earners.
Recognizing that wars are never
fought in the interests of the people
who pay the terrible price which must
be paid, I favor domestic and inter-
national policies such as will bring
peace and security to the war-
harassed generation of today; these
policies to be based upon 'collective
action of the workers and students
throughout the world.
Martin B. Dworkis
Liberal Progressive,
The Student Senate serves as an
active, forceful medium to affect the
wish of the student body; it is the
only campus-wide body of concen-
trated student opinion. I am running
for reelection to this body on simple
principles. It would be narrowmind-
ed for me to propose one definite
platform; my liberalism consists in
being thoroughly judicious to alll
problems. I am not overly sentimental
to the status quo, yet I openly pro-
pose no definite innovations of ad-
justments; my progressiveness con-+
sists in evincing a pliable disposition+
to better and advancing ideas. If I
am re-elected I'll do as I see fit, guid-l
ed by my limited acumen.
The Senate is a growing power onI
campus interested in the students'I
welfare; it is a student body. It needs
everyone's support-show yours by
voting next Friday.

American Youth, though its head be

To this end we pledge ourselves to
defend the status quo when attacked
by agitators whose emotions over-
rule their intellects; to amend it, in
turn, when, scientific investigation
and analysis point the way to a bet-
ter scheme of things.
We shall take no preconceived at-
titude on any proposal. Rather we
shall examine each new measure as it1
arises, subject it to sane analysis, and
compare it with the status quo. If the
status quo, whether campus, nation-
al, or international suffers by com-
parison, we shall bend all our talents
;o espousing a change.
Believing in representative govern-
ment, we shall consider ourselves ser-
vants of the student body. As such

duce measures submitted by our con-
stituents, if we consider the measure
a worthy one.

At the earliest possible date, a
course in Marriage should be added,
to the curriculum of the University.
Such courses are offered in colleges
and universities throughout the coun-

I am a sincere advocate of democ-

telligently progressive youth move-
ment or whether it is assumed by a

of a "Boss."

I feel that dormitory facilities
should be further extended, that ill-
feeling and discrimination against
racial minorities on campus and in
Ann Arbor be discountenanced, and
also that student organizations on

tical, and athletic, should enjoy Uni-
versity encouragement;. in the light
of which, it is my sincere hope that
the sharp division between academic
and athletic scholarship may cease to
exist. Peter Carter
