Of Senate Is Final



Six Of Sixteen Successful
Candidates Have Party
Affiliations;_2,106 Vote
Perlman Is First
To Win Position'
Unaffiliated candidates again won
the balance of power in the Student
Senate as the proportional represen-
tation elections Friday drew 2106 stu-
dents ~to the polls, surpassing last'
year's turnout by 389.-
Final election returns, released at
noon yesterday by Edward Magdol,
'39, director of elections, indicate that
only five of the 16 elected ran on
organized party tickets. The other 11
winners, while having the backing of
substantial groups of students, did
not run in blocs, but individually.
The newly elected Student Senators,
together with the 16 who were elected
last March and have held their seats,
will hold their first meeting at 7:30
p.m. Tuesday in the League.
Thirteen Invalidated
Robert Permian, '39, Liberal Coali-
tion, wo had won the largest number
of first votes, 91, was the first to be
elected, reaching the necessary quota
of 130 after the 41st transfer of bal-
lots. This quota was obtained by
dividing the total numbe of valid
votes cast, 2093, by the number of
vacancies, 16, Edward Magdol, '39,
director of elections, explained.
John R. Hulbert, '40, running in-
dependently, amassed 47 transfer
votes by the 2nd count which, added
to his 83 firsts gave him a total of
130. On the last count, Harry Stutz,
'39, Liberal Coalition, reached 130s
with 50 transfers, added to his 80 first
In addition, 13 students were electedj
without having secured 130 votes,I
since the remaining 44 candidates
had already been eliminated: James
E. Tobin, '41, Non-Partisan, 125 votes;"
Alberta Wood, '40, Liberal, 125 votes;
William Kraner, '41, Liberal, 118;
Rchard Jeffreys, Grad., Liberal Coa-
lition, 116; John P. O'Hara, '39, 115; f

Socialist, 90; Donald Counihan, '41,.
89: Ethel Q. Norberg, '40, Progressive
Coalition, 89; Martin B. Dworkis, '40,
Independent Liberal-Labor, 87.
Of the 2106 ballots cast, less than
one per cent or 13 were invalidated
because of improper markings. This
number is very small, Magdol said, in
view of the large number of votes cast,
and indicates the ability of Michigan
students to vote according to the Hare
System of PR.
Using the cases of James Frankel
'41, who was not elected and Ted
Grace, '39, who was, Magdol illustrat-
ed the flexibility of proportional
"Frankel ranked fourth in the num-
ber of first votes, with 68," the elec-
tions director said, "but his failure to
secure a substantial number of sec-
onds or thirds eliminated him at the
next-to-last count, with 78 votes."
"While Grace," Magdol continued,
"who was 35th among the 60 candi-
dates on first votes alone, rode in on
his 65 transfer votes."

U. S. Nearing
Policy Stand
Two Schools Of Thought
Started In Washington
Over Munich 'Peace'
Hull Not Too Cordial
To Trade Treaty Talk
WASHINGTON, Oct. 22-1)-The
United States government appeared
today to be approaching a choice be-
tween opposition to or limited collab-
oration with the dictator states.
Out of the "peace of Munich," two
schools of thought have developed at
the State Department.,
One says: "Germany's recent ag-
grandizement in central Europe pro-
duces stabilization. Germany's ener-
gies will be spent in economic develop-
tnent, especially in central Europe. Her
thoughts will be more on commerce
than cannon, more on money than
machine-guns. We can therefore af-
ford to collaborate with her."
Fear Germany's Appetite
The other says: "Germany will, it
is true, devote every energy to the
development of central Europe. But
she will develop herself militarily as
well. And she will go out for other
markets, too. Particularly in South
America. We must oppose her, not
work with her."
In the opinion oisome diplomats
here, Ambassador Joseph P. Kennedy
advanced the collaboration idea in his
Navy League speech in London this
"We have to live together in the
same world," he said, "whether we
like it or not."
Hull Is Not Too Cordial
But some experts interpret Secre-
tary of State Cordell Hull's public ut-
terances as indicating he holds the
second view. After Kennedy's speech,
Hull stated that America's foreign*
policy still rested on his and the
President's previous declarations.-
Some of these abounded with criti-
cism of the aggressions of the dictator
nations. Hull also said Kennedy's
utterances were his personal opinions.,

which the Secretary outlined in his
last radio address conflicts on several
important points with Germany's

Purucker's 'Injury' Sets
Stage For Winning Tally
NEW YORK, Oct. 22 (Special to
The Daily)--"Madcap" Norm Pu-
rucker took up where Yale's Larry
Kelley left off as his very opportune
"injured leg" gave Michigan the
chance to start her winning march
down the field yesterday.
With more than 20 yards to go on
fourth down, Norm, back to kick, was
roughed by the Yale forwards and
was knocked down to the ground with
an injury which will probably become
famous in Wolverine football an-
nals. Yale was penalized 15 yards,
Michigan got a first down, and went

Dr. Rickert, who would have been
59 yesterday, was in Chicago en route

President Ruthven said last night:
"I was deeply shocked to hear of Dr.
Rickert's death. In his passing we
have lost an important member of
the staff."
Dr. Rickert retired last April as
president of the Michigan State Den-
tal Society. He had been an active
member of the executive council of
the state society for 10 years. He also
is a past president of the Interna-
tional Association for Dental Re-
search and past president of the
American College of Dentists.
At the time of his death he was
president and dental member of the
advisory council of the Michigan
State Board of Health and was an
honorary member of numerous state
dental societies.
Dr. Rickert's studies in dental in-
fections have been instrumental in
preventing the wholesale extraction
of teeth. His studies and researches

Charges Employes Fired
For Union Activities,
Not For Striking

WASHINGTON, Oct. 22--(A)-The
Government carried to the Supreme
Court today its contention that sit-
down strikers discharged by the Fan-
steel Metallurgical Corporation were
dismissed because of their union sym-
pathy, not because of the stike. and
therefore should be reinstated.
Solicitor General Robert H. Jack-
son and Charles Fahy, general coun-
sel of the National Labor Relations
Board, appealed from a lower court
decision against the Board's ruling.
that the North Chicago firm should
reinstate 92 dismissed employes.
In its decision the Labor Board
stated that some of the company's
employes seized two of its key build-
ings on Feb. 17, 1937, after the com-
poration had refused tO bargain col-
lectively with representatives of the
Amalgamated Association of Iron,;
Steel and Tin Workers of America.
The Board ordered Fansteel to
bargain with the Amalgamated and
to reinstate the 92 employes. The lat-
ter order was based, Board officials
said, on an Examiner's finding that,
since all employes who participated in
the sit-down were not discharged, the
real reason for the dismissals was
"continuing sympathy with the union
and its activities."
