Woman Debate
Team Leaves
For Ohio State
Krause, Maxted, Taylor,
And 'Sapp To Participate
, Roundtable Conclave
Four women varsity .debaters will
leave this afternoon for Ohio State
University where they will take part
in a roundtable discussion on the
supression of anti-democratic organ-
izations in the United States.
Jane Krause, '41, Jean Maxted, '41,
Mary Martha Taylor, '41, and Jane
Sapp, '41, will make the trip to par-
ticipate in the roundtable with teams
from other Big Ten schools. This is
the only debate activity for women
scheduled this semester.
Roundtable discussions for women
were introduced last spring when the
four women who had been working
on the semester's Big Ten question
were asked to meet at Northwestern'
to discuss the position of married
women in society. Members of thei
team who made that trip were Betty
Jane Mansfield, '39, Janet Grace, '42,
Rosebud Scott, '42 and Miss Krause.E
The 'results of this first discussion
were so successful that coaches of the
Big Ten women's teams decided that
the debaters should work on a dis-
cussion topic the first semester of
each year and continue the regular
debate system the second semester.
In tomorrow morning's general as-
sembly, Miss Krause will point out
the problems connected with the
question. Miss Maxted will head a
roundtable discussion group, Miss
Taylor will give an after-dinner
speech, and Miss Sapp will present
the Michigan team's solution to the
problems presented.

Is Captured After
Death Row Escape
A small brown monkey sits shiv-
ering disconsolately behind bars
again today after making a heroic
bid for freedom from the experi-
mentation cage in the Hygiene-Anat-
omy Laboratory.
Making good his escape from the
new Medical Building's death row
last week he jumped over an in-
structor's net and scrambled out of
the room, the primate specimen fled
to the top floor and hid in the ven-
tilation system.
The only evidence that he had not
escaped from thedbuilding was his
appearance one day 'from behind
water distilling apparatus to steal an
apple almost from the grasp of a de-
partment member. After this, food
was left for him and it disappeared
The fifth day a monkey was see
swinging down the Medical Build-
ing's corridors to the first floor.
After him came three net-flourish-
ing teachers. They tracked him to
the medical students smoking room,
closed in, and captured him.
The disconsolate monkey might
take heart, however, if the fate of
another member of his family were
revealed to him. Three years ago
a laboratory specimen escaped and
resisted capture in campus trees. He
was shot.

tion surrounding the death in office
of every Republican president elect-

the past 100 years. This supersti-
tion came quite prominently" into
view in Chicagoin 1920 at the Re-

quite a fight to keep Harding from
running for president, for fear 'he'
might diebut Harding declared he

Nevertheless he 'died, And 1940 is
divisible by 20.
Dewey's position in the national
political set-up is, compared to the
other two Republican big names,
rather that of an outsider, Profes-
sor Dorr said, inasmuch as the old
guard is pretty much in control of
the national committee. But the
rank and file of the party determine
the popularity of a candidate, so if
Dewey gets enough publicity from the
right sources, and receives enough
public acclaim, Professor Dorr point-
ed out, he may succeed in overcom-
ing the national committee.
