The "ham and eggs", old age pension plan was getting the worst of it
in California, early returns indicated last night, after pension advocates
had conceded defeat in Ohio.
Election returns showed a proposal to legalize horse race betting under
the pari-mutuel system winning easily in New York, where such wagers
have traditionally been placed with bookmakers.
In Kentucky, partial returns had Gov. Keen Johnson (Dem.) leading inf
his race for election to the office he reached recently through the resigna-

"Family Portrait," by Lenore Cof-
fee and William Joyce Cowen, shows
Jesus' family as an everyday family
group. In a light and often humor-
ous vein, it tears all legend and mys-
tery from the family, presenting the
action as befitting any time in his-
tory or any location'
This play features an unusually
- large number of separate scenes,
s which have been tied together with
music arranged especially for "Family

"Family Portrait's" long and success-
ful run there, were especially sur-
- prised at not finding heavy religious
., drama in the play. Chief attraction
al in the play, he adds, lies in its uni-
versality, of time and place.

G Named
As Chairman
Of 1940 JGP
Prominent Junior Will Fill
Vacancy Left In Post
By AllisonResignation
Jane Grove, '41, has been appoint-
ed general chairman of the 1940
Junior Girls Play, Betty Slee, '40,
chairman of Judiciary Council, an-
nounced yesterday.
Miss Grove will fill the vacancy
left by Margery Allison, '41, who re-
signed the position due to i:1 health.
A member of Kappa Alpha Theta,
Miss Grove worked on the entertain-
ment, committee for Freshman Pro.-
ject, the dance committee and pub-
licity committee for Sophomore Cab-
aret, and is a member of the pub-
licity committee of the League.
She is also a member of Le Cercle
Francais, was on the tea committee
of WAA last year, and the ticket com-
mittee for Michigras. She is now
head of intramural sports for WAA,
and is president of Wyvern, junior
women's honorary society.
Other members of the central com-
mittee chosen last spring are Anna-
bel Van Winkle, assistant chairman;
Lee Hardy, publicity; Ann Vedder,

Jane Krause, programs; Ruth Fitz-
patrick, make-up; Virginia Osgood,

steads, whether under convoy or not,
when they are brought there to be
sequestrated pending the decision of
a Prize Court." However, the, neu-
tral state is under no obligation .to
extend such permission, Professor
Preuss observed.
Norway was obligated to release the
ship even if the Article 1had stipulat-
ed "must" instead of^"may,"Profes-
sor Preuss stated, for the United
States made a reservation to Article
23 in ratifying the Convention. "The
German Government-is not justified
in contesting the action of the Nor-.
wegian Government in construing
strictly its neutral obligations toward
the _United States," he declared..
Contrasting the Norwegian action
with that of-Russia, Professor Preuss
said, "Under the general rules of in-
ternation law, Soviet Russia was un-
der obligation to release the City .of
Flint to its owners and to intern the
German prize' crew when the City
of Flint put in at Murmansk. Soviet,
Russia not only conimitted a viola-
tion of its international obligations
in refusing to do so, but was undoubt-
edly guilty of bad faith in refusing
to permit an investigation of the sub-

j'ect while the vessel was in port.d
When the City of Flint, after leav-
ing Murmansk, put in at Tromso,
Norway, it was for lack of fuel ora
provisions, one of the reasons forc
which a' prize- crew may carry itsa
prize into neutral waters.' Wheni the
reason for its sojourn ceased, the
Norwegian Government very properly1
demanded that it leave port.
Professor Preuss noted that in al-
lowing the German crew to navigate
the City of Flint within Nprwegian
territorial waters to Haugesund, the
Norwegian Government was actually
favoring Germany in its extension of
the point of the law. It was ap-
parent that the ship traveled Nor-
wegian waters to keep from encoun-
tering enemy vessels. However, when
the City of Flint docked at Hauges-
und for reasons not specified accord-
ing to international law, the Norwe-
gian Government-exercised its rights
by releasing the vessel and intern-
ing the German crew. Professor
Preuss concluded, "It is clear, there-
fore, that the' Norwegian Govern-
ment,'acting in scrupulous regard as
to neutral duties, has performed 'nol
act about which Germany can right-
fully complain."

'Deutschland' Unreported
LONDON, Nov. 7.-(P)-Naval cir-
cles speculated tonight on the likeli-
hood that the German pocket battle-
ship Degtschland had slipped through
British partols into a home port to
provision and refuel. These sources
said the theory was supported by the
fact that there has been no confirmed
report of activities by the raider since
she put a prize crew aboard the City
of Flint in the North Atlantic, Oct. 9.

Dr. Nathan Sinai of the hygiene

standards in the field of public health
