According to the Hare system of
proportional representation, w i t h
2,093 valid votes cast, it was necessary
to secure one-sixteenth of this num-
ber, or 130, for election, since there
were 16 vacancies. Perlman, the
highest number of first choice votes,
Hulbert, was secord; Stutz, third;
Frankel, Tobin were tied for fourth;
Counihan and Goodell were tied for
sixth place.
13 Ballots Invalid
Only six-tenths of one per cent,
13, of the entire number of ballots
cast were declared invalid by the
Election Board for improper mark-
ings. This proportion is much lower
than has been recorded in many of
the municipal elections in which pro-
portional representation has been
used, Magdol said. Last year 1714
students voted and five of them had
their ballots nullified.
Twenty-nine candidates have al-
ready been eliminated, Magdol said.
The Election Board was composed
of Magdol, chairman; Richard M.
Scammon, a graduate student here
last year, adviser; Raoul Weisman,
'39E; Sam Weisberg, '39; Betty
Shaw, '41; Murray Silverman, '40;
Stuart Knox, '40; Harold Kandiner,
Grad.; Daniel Rosenkoff, '40; Rob-
ert P. Bretland, '39. Perlman and
Walter Stebens. '40, were judges at
the counting.
Lehman Loses
La Guardia Aid,
Must Endorse New Deal
Before Getting Svport
HYDE PARK, N. Y., Oct. 21-fA)--
Mayor F. H, Lauaria of New York
made it emphatically clear today
that Gov. Herbert H. Lehman could
expect no support from him in his
campaign for reelection unless he
came out anew for the New Deal.
Emerging from a conference on
politics and housing with President
Roosevelt, the scrappy little Mayor
and leader in the American Labor
Party, said "support of the Federal
administration" was a principal fac-
tor in the New York campaign and
an issue throughout the country.
He did not disclose Mr. Roosevelt's
attitude. but he criticized Lehman,

for declining to reply directly to re-
porters' questions Tuesday, following
a talk with the President, whether
he would endorse the New Deal in his

Prague Considers

(On the Czechoslovak Border)-Oct.
21-(I)-Nearly half a million Hun-
garian troops facing Czechoslovakia
along this frontier eagerly awaited
orders today while their officers ex-
pressed confidence of the outcome
should the territorial dispute with
the Czechs flare into conflict.
In a tour of the border arranged
by the War Ministry to demonstrate
Hungarian fearlessness of any neces-
sary war, this correspondent was given
the impression that in some sections
Hungarian officers are hard put to
restrain their men from crossing the
line "to free Hungarian brothers and
sisters from the Czech terror."
The Hungarians voiced pride in an
army they said was stamped out from
the earth "overnight," with excellent
anti-aircraft equipment, although un-
til three months ago their country
was not permitted to have more than
35,000 troops, and was allowed no air-
force, heavy artillery, or tanks.
Hungarian villages in a zone as
much as 50 miles deep along the bor-
der were thronged with troops. Tanks
with huge skulls painted on =either
side crawled along border roads.
Conceding Czechoslovak superior-
ity in numbers of planes and tanks,
Hungarian officers commented:
"The territory in which we may
have to fight is not especially suitable
for tanks. Our anti-aircraft equipment
has reached a degree of perfection
that probably no other country can

Captured Yesterday
The South China metropolis was
captured yesterday afternoon after
one of the most astounding cam-

in which a comparatively small but
highly mobile and formidably equip-

thousands of Chinese soldiers.
Pointed by corps of tanks, their
turreted guns inactive, the column
swung into the virtually deserted city

Rum rih Says
He Became Spy
To Clear Name
Chief Witness In German
Espionage Trial Calls'
Self 'Patriotic Traitor'
NEW YORK, Oct. 21.-(IP)-Guen.
ther Gustav Rumrich, 32, army de-
sorter turned Nazi spy, said under
cross-examination in Federal Court
today that "sometimes" he felt pa-
triotic about America and was
"haunted at night" by the idea of
clearing the blemish on his record
as a soldier.
The confessed traitor, testifying as
one of the Government's key wit-
nesses against three alleged co-con-
spirators, said he originally entered
the German espionage service to
clear his record by turning over for-.
eign spies to the U.S. Government.
"I thought that by giving the
Government of the United States in-
formation about foreign spies said to
infest the United States I could
clear my record," he said.
As Rumrich spoke, Fraulein Jo-
hanna Hofmann, 26, pretty red-
haired alleged "payoff" agent of the
spy ring, sat with bowed head. She
had regained her composure since a
burst of weeping yesterday.;

NEW HAVEN, Conn., Oct. 21.-
(Special to The Daily)- Michigan
renews a football rivalry dormant for
over half' a century tomorrow when
the Wolverines invade Yale Bowl in
an intersectional battle with the sons
of old Eli.
Not since 1883 have the two teams
met on the gridiron and in those
embryonic football days, the Bull-
dog emerged victorious 46 to 0. In
1881, the only other meeting, Yale
also defeated the Wolverine, this
time by a score of 17 to 0.
This staid town was surprisingly
quiet tonight on the eve of a big
game but a large influx of visiting
fans and alumni is expected to ar-
rive here tomorrow. With New York
but two hours away, large groups of
I Michigan and Yale alumni are cer-
tain to be in the stands cheering
their favorites.
Upwards of 35,000 fans are expect-
ed to file into the Bowl tomorrow to
see the game.
The Wolverines were quartered to-
i night at Cheshire School, formerly
'the Roxbury School, outside of town.
The Yale crew was also encamped
at some hinterland hangout.
There was little betting, and you
could almost name your price on a
Yale wager. Michigan remained the
prohibitive favorite, but there was a
subtle "if" among all competent ob-
servers who appraised the two con-
The conjecture arises from the
poignant question: "Can Michigan
stop a potent aerial attack?" To
date they have proven incapale of
doing just that, and in Yale they will
face one of the strongest passing
teams in the nation.
Throwing them for Eli will be Gil-
bert "Bud" Humphrey, 168 pound
quarterback who has compiled a re-
markable record on the pitching
rubber this season and will be Yale's
big gun tomorrow.
The Blue has met with mediocre
success in three previous games to
date, scoring but 23 points to their
opponents' 55. They lost their open-
er to Columbia, 27 to 14, and were

Speech Clinic's New Inventions

Despite predictions that rearma-
ment and increased government
spending will necessitate another
heavily unbalanced federal budget, a
government deficit, calculated by
American methods, does not neces-
sarily indicate unsound economicj
policy, according to Prof. A. Smithies
of the economics department, who re-
cently returned from Australia where
he was economist for the Common-
wealth Treasury.
A deficit balanced by income pro-
ducing assets, Professor Smithies feels.
reflects no lack of soundness in
government finance. On the contrary,
it may constitute a necessary founda-
tion for industrial prosperity.
"In Australia, the 'normal deficit'
calculated by the American method
amounts to about $64,000,000," Profes-
sor Smithies said. "Bearing in mind
that the Australian population is little
more than 15 percent of the Ameri-
can, this deficit is equivalent at least
to more than $1,000,000,000, and con-
sidering the need for capital develop-
ment of the country is, I think, a
conservative policy."
Americans are apt to overlook this
point, Professor Smithies warned,
since in England and Australia capital


years, Professor Smithies said thatj
government loans have been raised by
public issues taken up by commercial
banks in the orthodox way and have
involved no appreciable inflationary
increase of the credit base.
"Even in the best of times a con-,
tinued program of government invest-
ment has probably now become an
economic necessity in the United
States in order to keep the resources
and the people of the country fully
employed," Professor Smithies pointed
out. "In times of depression the gov-
