GoodWill Fund
Gives Students
Fmancial Help
Daily Assists Annually;
Aid In Form Of Gifts
Often Paid Back Later
As the last resort of students fac-
ing a financial emergency, the Good
Will Fund has become a firmly es-
tablished campus institution. Any
man or woman enrolled in the Uni-
versity may go to Alice C. Lloyd,
Dean of Women, and' Joseph A.
Bursley, Dean of Students, respec-
tively, for aid.
Money is given in the form of a
gift, but many students pay it back
when they find themseles in the
position to do so, according to Dean
Bursley. Letters are continually
coming in from all parts of the coun-
try from former students who re-
ceived gifts, and who wish to help
others by returning the money.
Aids Ill Students
Cases most often requiring assis-
tance are those of students in ill
health who have been working their
way through school entirely by their
own efforts, Dean Bursley stated.
Just before final examinations the
number of requests increase, as many
find that they cannot work for board
waiting on tables, work for room do-
ing housework and perhaps keep up
with the NYA job at the same time.
Students may ask aid for needy ac-
Contributions to the Good Will
fund are made annualy by the Daily
through its Goodfellow edition, and
from J-Hop and other social affairs'
profits. Honor societies are also reg-
ular donors, and large gifts are made
occasionally by alumni. A steady
source of contributions are the un-
dergraduates themselves.
The fund was first proposed by p
small group of students and faculty
members in December, 1932. John H.
Huss, vice-president of the Union
in that year, acted as chairman of
a committee appointed by President
Alexander G. Ruthven to undertake
the venture.
Daily Cooperated
The Daily, cooperating with the
committee, publicized its requests
for contributions of food, clothes,
money and jobs.
A concerted drive to raise $10,000
was started in January, 1933, and
campus support was realized imme-
diately with $1,000 being raised the
first week.
Opposition to the movement arose
for a short time when a student pur-
porting to represent the National
Student League denounced the fund
and proposed state aid instead. The
flood of criticism after his outburst,
however, squelched his group and
strengthened the Good Will Fund
Perspectives Delayed

National Poll Shows Many
Prefer Nation-Wide Vote
To Congress Decision
AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 10-With Eu-
rop's war now entering its fourth
month of existence, American college
students, in a national poll conducted
by the Student Opinion Surveys of
America, have registered a highly
optimistic view that the United States
can stay out of the conflict.
Also, hand-in-hand with the na-
tion's apparent determination not to
be involved, a slight majority of the
collegians have voted in favor of re-
quiring a referendum of the people
before Congress could draft men to
fight abroad.
These are the latest findings of the
Student Opinion Surveys, which
weekly report campus sentiment for
The Daily and the other leading col-
lege newspapers of the nation. These
polls are all taken by means of a
carefully-selected cross section that1
extends from Main to California,
Washington to Florida.
To the question, "Do you believe
the United States can stay out of the
present European war?" students an-
Yes ................68 per cent
No................32 per cent
Although this issue is pure specula-
tion, it is important to know this
opinion in order to get an insight in-
to the war patterns of the average
college youth's mind. The rank and
file of voters is not so sure that the
U.S. can steer clear, for in other polls
only 54 per cent have held this view.-
It will be of interest to note in subse-
quent surveys the effect here of the,
Russian attack on Finland, since
these polls were made before the Red
Army began its activities.
Section-by-section votes in the stu-,
dent poll were: Believing the U.S. can
stay out of war--New England, 61 per.
cent; Middle Atlantic, 70; East Cen-
tral, 65; West Central, 70; South
70; Far West, 64.
"Should the Constitution be3
changed to require a national vote of,
the people before Congress could
draft men to fight overseas?" inter-

viewers for the Surveys asked hun-
dreds of students. They divided al-
most evenly, only 53 per cent ap-
Interesting differences were noted
among students of different ages,
upperclassmen reversing themselves
A Draft Per Cent
Referendum? Yes No
Freshmen ..............60 40
Sophomores ............52 48
Juniors ................46 54
Seniors, Graduates .....49 51
By section, New Englanders were
the only ones against a national vote,
East Central students divided 50-50,
and all others approving by narrow

Merry Christmas
Happy New Year

Now 'candidate for the Republican
nomination for president in 1940,
Thomas E. Dewey, '23, made his first
appearance in the national limelight
in the 15th annual Michigan Union
Playing Patrick O'Dare, a country
gentlemen in the musical comedy
"Top O' Th' Mornin'," Dewey was
mentioned in The Daily's review of
the show because he ". . . also dis-
played a good set of vocal cords." The
song "Satan Put A Devil in the Irish,"
which he put over accompanied by a
clogging bevy of masculine chorus
girls, was acclaimed as the best 'hot
song' of the musical.
According to Prof. Paul M. Cun-
cannon, of the political .science de-
partment, Dewey's fine baritone voice
may be one of the factors that will
make Republicans consider him for
presidential timber. His "good set of
vocal chords" are an asset on the
speaker's platform.
"Top O' Th' Mornin'," which opened
March 29, 1920, and ran for five
days at the Whitney Theatre, had
the distinction of having the best
musical score and of being the most
professional opera ever presented up
to that time. Its setting was laid in
Limerick, Ireland, and the story dealt
with the trials and errors of an Irish
colleen. The plot-"just enough to
hang songs and dances on"-gave op-
portunity to University men to cavort
as butterflies, fairies and fawns.
So successful was the opera that
it was able to have the longest road
trip in its history.- A special train

with three Pullman cars transported
the cast, orchestra, committeemen,
stage assistants and a faculty repre-
sentative to eight Michigan cities in
eight days at a= cost of more than $3,-
The comedy was directed by E.
Mortimer Shuter. In charge of
scenery construction was Carl Bromel,
a former retoucher of Ziegfield Follies'
settings. Costumes were ordered from
a Philadelphia store that sent rep-
resentatives out to measure the cast.
A publishing house printed copies of
the 12 Irish songs from the show,
and these were put on sale in Ann
Arbor before the opening night.
The combination of superior prep-
aration and near-professional acting
evoked much campus praise. Thomas
Dewey, as one of the principal play-
ers, came in for his share in the fol-
lowing Daily declaration: "The prin-
cipals shout right out without seem-
ing to mind how wide open their
mouths are."
