Union To Open
Ballot Service
For Students
Absentee Voting Provisions
To Be Furnished Daily
By Advisers In Lobby
Students eligible to vote for the
first time have no reason to be daunt-
ed by the complications of absentee
voting, for the Union's Absentee Bal-
lot Service has been established to
explain all the processes of citizen-
ship's first duty.
Three general steps are involved
in absentee voting: registration, ap-
plication for the ballot, and voting
the ballot. Each has different re-
quirements in the various communi-
ties and states in the country.
Most states require the absentee
voter to register in the same manner
as regular voters. Occasionally there
is a provision allowing absentee vot-
ers to register by mail. Persons who
.have never voted before should check
with their town, county or city clerk
as to the requirements of the initial
Application for the ballot is usually
accomplished by filling out an affi-
davit form which has been procured
from the applicant's town, city or
county clerk. Applications must usu-
ally be returned between the second
and fourth weeks preceding the elec-
When the application has bepn ac-
cepted an official ballot will be sent.
Full instructions will accompany the
ballot. Usually it must be mnarked be-
fore a notary and returned before
election day.
Persons interested in learning the
exact provisions of their respective
states' laws regarding absentee vot-
ing may consult advisers in the Union
lobby between 3 and 5 p.m. any day.

Completed Waterway Would Aid
Industrial Defense, Hoover Says
vrlt nn the nti tieitic of the WA -

A German supply ship of about 2,500 tons is being bombed by Brit-
ain's fleet air arm at Haugesund, Norway, according to British sources
which said "more than one hit was registered." Bombs are landing
close to the docked ship. Note barges moored on the other side of the
Freshmen Will Be Subjects

Immediate Developmentt
Would Provide Powert
And Railroad Facilities t
Immediate development of the St.t
Lawrence Waterway would be gen-
uinely helpful in effectuating thet
national defense program, Prof. Ed-
gar M. Hoover, Jr., of the economics
department declared in an interview
Such a development would include'
the construction of a number of'
hydro-electric 'power plants in New;
York State, which could be effective-
ly used in many defense industries,t
especially in the manufacture of1
aluminum and ferro-alloys, Profes-
sor Hoover pointed out.
The Waterway would aid interna-
tional defense projects with Canada,
and would open up shipyards on the
Great Lakes heretofore restricted in
their facilities because of no ocean
outlet, he said. These shipyards
would also have the advantage of
being located in less vulnerable parts
of the country.
Professor Hoover predicted that
the development of the Waterway{
would result in the possibility of less
railroad congestion during the peak
seasons of the year, if and when war
comes. Railroad congestion was a
serious problem during the last
World War in the United States, and
could conceivably become so again.
Professor Hoover served as con-
sultant to the St. Lawrence Water-
way Survey for a total period of ten
weeks last spring and summer, and
studied in particular the power as-
pects of the water development. The
survey was functioning under the
Department of Commerce at Wash-
ington, and was organized in Novem-
ber, 1939, to advise President Roose-
Child Guidance
TopicOf Meet
Workers Of Three States
Convene Next Month
Dr. Charles F. McKhann, chair-
man of the department of pediatrics,
and Dr. William Sadler of the W. K.
Kellogg Foundation will be featured
speakers at the Tri-State Conference
on Pupil Personnel, which will be
held November 7 through 9 in the
The Conference is expected to at-
tract outstanding figures in the field
of child guidance and correction of
maladjusted and unadjusted chil-
dren. Michigan, Indiana and Ohio
workers compose the membership of
the Conference. Included among the
delegates, it is expected, will be
teachers, school attendance officers,
vocational counsellors, psychologists,
doctors and nurses.

The survey will soon send a sec-
tionalized report of its conclusions to
the President, which will include a
detailed description of the historical
background of the St. Lawrence and
an appraisal of the specific costs and
benefits which the Waterway would
offer to the United States.
Professor Hoover's contribution to
the survey's report is to be an ac-
count of the possibilities and eco-
nomic values of power plants, if they
were constructed along the Water-
way. He has concluded that an ade-
quate market would exist for the
power by 1950 considering normal
economic growth, probably before
then, if the plants were used for
national defense purposes.
Ann Arbor I

Freshmen male students who re-
member being photographed sans
tout at the finish of their recent
health examinations may like to
know that they are subjects of an'
intensive experiment being conducted
by the University Psychological Clin-
ic Institute of Human Adjustment.
The experiment is an- exploratory
study of the relationships between
constitutional body types and the
psychological, sociological and medi-
cal factors in student life.
According to Mr. Robert S. Wal-
drop who in collaboration with Dr.
Charles Griffits of the Institute is
supervising the study, the experiment
will require constant observation of
as many of the subjects as is pos-
sible for a period of at least four
. Health Service histories will be ex-
amined, the individual's academic
record will be observed and as far
as possible, consideration will be made
of each subjects participation in cam-
pus activities, Mr. Waldrop explained.
Throughout the experiment, he
said, a study will be made to deter-
mine any possible correlation be-
tween any of these factors and the
general body types.
Mr. Waldrop pointed out that
similar experiments have- been car-
ried out from time to time in other
Universities, the most intensive
studies having been made by Dr.
William H. Sheldon at the University
of Chicago. Thus, he said, these ex-

absorbed in the department budget,
he added.

periments will serve to verify Dr.
Sheldon's results and may be profit-
able in determining more results.
As to the value of the experiments,
Mr. Waldrop explained that they
may enable psychologists, sociolo-
gists and doctors to better under-
stand individuals by reference to cer-
tain physical characteristics.
To indicate the immense plan of
work necessary to carrying on the
experiments, Mr. Waldrop said that
1,100 pictures have been taken -al-
ready, and that more than 22,000
measurements must be determined
before actual study can be made.

CLEVELAND, Oct. 4.-(AP)-The
weight of uncertain economic condi-"
tions has contributed to the stoop of
college girls' shoulders, the national
recreation congress was told today.
Miss Helen Barr, physical educa-
tion director at Denison University,
Granville, O., said stoop-shouldered
Sue's droop is not due "entirely to
neglect of physical training or the
once-popular debutante slouch, but
rather to a sense of defeat due to
current econonmic conditions."

If the temperament of Michigan's
own live wolverine is an indication
of this season's football promise for
Michigan, Crisler's eleven won't have
any trouble with State today.
Last week when Karl L. Goellner,
assistant at the University Museums
and keeper of the animals, put his
head inside the cage and asked In-
trepidus what he was going to do
with the California Bear, his hair
straightened up, he bared his teeth,
lowered his ears and began to snarl,
hiss and growl.
This week when Goellner asked
about the State game, Intrepidus got
twice as mad as he did before the
California game. He became so ex-
cited that he seemed to want to break
out of his cage and tear up to East
Lansing before the game.
Intrepidus came to the University
exactly a year ago, a gift of the
Chevrolet Motor Company to Field-
ing Yost. He got his name, which
means without fear, or brave, in a
naming contest conducted by the
Before Treppy gained his present
name he was known as Gulo luscus,
which is the scientific name for those
Wolverines which are native to
Michigan, of which there are,
strangely, none.
However, if there were a Wolver-
ine native to Michigan he -would be
known as Gulo luscus.
