Charles Ross First
To Receive Office
(Directors of Student Senate Election)
Victory in the record-breaking Stu-
dent Senate election Friday seemed
to be equally divided among candi-
dates representing both liberal and
conservative thought, a preliminary
analysis yesterday revealed.
This ballotting, which drew more
students to the polls than had ever
voted before in a campus election,
2,243, put into office seven liberals,
seven conservatives and two middle-
First-place votes in this election,
which was conducted according to
the Hare system of proportional
representation, played a significant
role in the determination of the six
candidates who attained the quota
of 140 votes by the end of the 31st
count, and the remaining ten who
were automatically declared "in" at
that time.
Ross Has Surplus Of.22.
Charles Ross, '41, running on a
Union Liberal ticket, received 162
first-choice, thus attaining office and
at the same time exceeding the quota
of 140 by 22 votes.
(The quota was obtained by divid-
ing the total number. of valid votes,
2,233, by 16, the number of seats to
be filled in the Senate.)
Roger Keley, '42, receiving eight
transferred votes, and George Cow-
ing, '40E, Union Liberal, three, bene-
fitted most from the division of Ross'
surplus, which was distributed pro-
portionately among the 13 candidates
who were indicated predomninantly
ahseond choices on his 162 ballots.
Other candidates who reached the
qu'ota, in the oider of election, were:
Martin B. Dworks, '40, Liberal, and
Ann Vicary, '40, Liberal Coalition,
both on the 29th count; Elliott Mar-
aniss, '40, Liberal Coalition and Sam
Grant, '40, on the 30th count; and
Dan Huyett, '42, on the 31st count.
Ten Miss Quota
The ten who were declared elected,
without reaching the quota by thk
end of the 31st count were: Richard
A. Steudel, '41, Moderate, with 137
votes; Roger Kelley, '42, 124 votes;
Annabel Hill, '41SM, Young Com-
munist League, 120; Jack Callouette,
'40E, Engineering-Lit Coalition, 118;
William Canfield, '40, Conservative,
114; Hugo Reichard, Grad., American
Student Union, 112; John Zubon,
'40Ed., DormItory, 107; Elwin Hen-
rick, '42, Liberal, 104; Fred C. Tyler,
'40EEgineering-Lit Coaltion, 103;
and Arnold White, '41, Non-Partisan,
with 103.
Only ten ballots or four-tenths of
one per cent of -the total votes cast,
2,243, were invalidated for improper
marking. Ballots of a greater num-
ber of voters, 269, who had only in-
dicated first and second choices,
were declared non-effective, when, in

Capone Faces
Old Tax Debt
Former Gang Leader Owes
CHICAGO, Nov. 4.-)-The Gov-
ernment plans to hand Al Capone a
bill for $350,000 when he emerges
from prison--probably this month.
The former gang leader faces a
civil suit for that amount, repre-
senting income taxes he allegedly neg-
lected to pay during the lush 1924-29
period, plus interest and penalties.

David Bazelon, assistant district
attorney and tax expert, reported to-
day that when Capone leaves the
Terminal Island penal institution
near San Pedro, Calif., he will meet
among others, an agent carrying col-
lection warrants.
If he ignored the dun, these steps
would be in order:
District Attorney William J. Camp-
bell would seek a judgment.

Talks Continue
Official Silence Obscures
Results Of Second Day
At Moscow Conference
MOSCOW, Nov. 4.-(AP)-For the
second time in two days the Finnish,
delegation was closeted with Soviet
leaders at the Kremlin tonight but
official silence cloaked- the result of
the vital negotiations.
A breakdown 1n the conference
which had been feared in some for-
eign quarters apparently had been
averted, since it was learned reliably
that the negotiaitons would be con-
Indicative of the importance of the
'talks was the presence of Joseph
Stalin at today's one hour session.
Foreign observers searched vainly for
any information which might indi-

Poland or whether Finland would re-
lent and accede to Russian demands
for concessions in Finland and Fin-

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4.-(&')-Rig-
orously applying the newly-signed
neutrality law, President Roosevelt
today excluded American shipping
from virtually all European ports ex-
cept those of neutral nations on the
Mediterranean and Arctic oceans.
The law itself, to which Mr. Roose-
velt affixed his signature this af-
ternoon, forbids the vessels of this
country to, carry cargoes to belliger-
ent England, France and Germany.
By an additional proclamation, au-
thorized in the law, the Chief Execu-
tive then forbade them to traverse a
broad "combat zone" in which there
appears to be danger from German
torpedoes or British warships.
Refers To Latitude
In the statement, Mr. Roosevelt
said that while the proclamation re-
ferred in businesslike terms to such
things as degrees of latitude and
longitude, "in plain English" the fol-
lowing was what was meant:
'From now on, no American ships
may go to belligerent ports, British,
French and . German, in Europe or
Africa as far south as the Canary
Islands. This is laid down in the
law and there is no discretion in the
"By proclaiming a combat area I
have set out the area in which the
actual operations of the war appear
to make navigation of American ships
dangerous. This combat area takes
in the whole Bay, of Biscay, except
waters on the north coast of Spain
so close to the Spanish coast as to
make danger of attack unlikely. It
also takes in all the waters around
Great Britain, Ireland and the adja-
cent islands including the English
Channel. It takes in the whole North
Sea, running up to the Norwegian
coast to a point south of Bergen. It
takes in all of the Baltic Sea and its
dependent waters."
Combat Areas Change
"Combat areas may change," Mr.
Roosevelt said in an accompanying
statement, "and it may be found that
areas now safe become dangerous, or
that areas now troubled may later
become safe. In this case the areas
will be changed to fit the situation.
"Coastwise American shipping is
not affected by the bill, nor is ship-
ping between American republics or
Bermuda or any of the Caribbean
Islands. In the main, shipping be-
tween the United States and Canada
is also not affected."
The Chief Executive also affixed
his signature to Lwo proclamations,
one re-affirming the neutrality of
the United States, and the other clos-
ing this nation's ports anew to belli-
gerent submarines, except in extra-
ordinary circumstances.
The three presidential signatures in
combination signalled to the world-
to a disappointed Germany and a
highly pleased France and England
-that the nations at war could now
buy as they liked of American arms,
munitions, implements of war and
raw materials, so long as they pay
cash and haul the supplies away in

Evashevski May Be Absent From Game
With Minnesota Because Of Injury;
Strong Throws Touchdown Pass
CHAMPAIGN, Ill., Nov. 4. (Special to The Daily)-The Wolverine title-
bound express was set upon by a band of marauding Indians here yesterday
and derailed-completely and decisively.
Thirty thousand homecoming fans came to Memorial Stadium to find
out if Tom Harmon were greater than the Harold "Red" Grange they saw
run wild against Michigan 15 years ago in thisa.very stadium. They remained
to see a fighting, highly underrated Illinois team out-scrap the invaders
from beginning to end-and turn in the upset of the year by winning 16-7.
With Ralph Ehni's 44-yard average punts setting them back on their
haunches early in the first quarter, the Wolverines never were able to
get back on the right track. Even Harmon, unable to get his usual .finef
blocking, was held to a net gain of 72 yards from scrimmage in 18 tries.
He scored the Wolverines' lone touchdown by taking Dave Strong's flat
pass and racing 45 yards to give his club a short-lived 7-3 lead.
The key to the game was that an opportunist Illinois team took advan-
tage of five Michigan fumbles, three of which figured in the scoring. In
the early minutes of the second quarter, one of Fred Trosko's three disas-
trous fumbles was recoved by Jim Reeder on the Michigan 34 yard line.,

Of Overseas Shipments
LONDON, Nov. 4.-(MP)-British
Treasury and Naval experts worked;
on plans tonight to swell the na-1
tion's war chest with cash for newly
available American supplies and to
bring them safely across the sub-
marine-infested Atlantic.
As the press lauded the United
States for repealing the arms em-
bargo, quick revision of existing over-
sea shipping schedules wasforecast
in authoritative circles to start the
flow of previously banned American
(Authorized sources in Paris said
the French and British Governments
were studying jointly such questions-
as shipments, payment and distribu-
tion between them of American arms.
The British First Lord of the Ad-
miralty, Winston Churchill, was in
the French capital conferring with
French Government leaders).
The Government also prepared to
ask Parliament next week to pass en-
abling legislation for the first public
loan of the war. The amount to be
offered was a government secret but
most estimates put it around 250,-
000,000 pounds.
The public, already advised by the
Government to put off its Christ-
mas shopping until this war loan
came out, was to be asked to help in
the. war by buying savings certifi-
The need for Government cash
gained more urgency from the re-
quirement in the American Neutral-
ity Act that supplies must be paid for
before delivery. The necessity of pro-
viding transport for the goods also
put shipping experts to work on ar-
rangements for diverting ships from
present empire and other over-
seas routes to take advantage of the
new store house of supplies in the
United States.

Michigan's blues after the loss to

tonight with the discovery that

shevski, coming back from the last
play, was off-side and -Walt Kitti,
sent in by Coach Crisler who had
seen the play, was unable to report
to the referee in time to halt the
play. Thus the Wolverines were
guilty of an off-side and of having
12 men on the field.

touchdown in the fourth quarter

reverse, went for another on the 12

England's Food Rationing Plan
Not Alarming, Dunham Declares

England's food rationing plan can
be interpreted as merely a precau-
tionary measure and not an implied
admittance of the success of the Ger-
man submarine warfare, Prof. Arthur
L. Dunham, of the history depart-
ment, declared yesterday.
Food rationing is simply another
move by the British government to
accustom the public to war-time pri-
vations, Professor Dunham believes.
An immediate food shortage of a
serious nature is unlikely, he said, for
the U-boat campaign has not yet
assumed really intense proportions.
Being able to produce only enough
food for her people one month out
of the 12. England is therefore large-
ly dependent upon foreign imports,
Professor Dunham pointed out, and,
therefore, the submarine threat is a
potentially dangerous one. However,

however, for their mechanism has
been improved in various ways.
England has in many ways speed-
ed up restrictive and precautionary
processes in the present war, con-
tinued Professor Dunham. "Ration-
ing procedures can be considered as
one part of that general policy, and
it cannot be inferred that British ec-
onomic strength has been materially
weakened. If one recalls that Ger-
many had a more extensive rationing
plan in effect even before the war be-
gan, England's innovation is in no
way alarming. The English may be
expected to submit to the new re-
strictions on food without undue com-
plaint," he said, "for they have un-
usual powers of endurance."
