*As Aor

Major Parties Will Lead U.S.
Into War, Communist Declares

A vote for Roosevelt, Willkie orj
Thomas is a vote for war, declared
Pat Toohey, secretary to Earl Brow-
der and member of the National
Committee of the Communist Party,
in a speech before the Michigan For-
um yesterday.
Mr. Toohey, who presented the
views of his party on the national
campaign, followed Michigan's Dem-
ocratic Senator Prentiss Brown and
Socialist Norman Thomas to the
platform of the Forum in its series
of political addresses. Republican
WendellL. Willkie previously spoke
in Ann Arbor under the auspices of
the local Young Republican group.
The only differen ce between the
major candidates, IL'oohey said, is
that Willkie claims he can do the
job of leading this country down the
road to war better than Roosevelt.
There is no better or worse choice
between FDR or WW, Toohey main-
tained, declaring that the only way
for Americans to effectively express
their desire for peace and security

was by voting for the Communist
Toohey maintained that the Com-
munist Party had always championed
the fight against Fascism and im-
perialist war and was the stimulat-
ing force for social welfare and se-
curity of the masses.
Reactionaries and war mongers
recognize this fact, Toohey held,
pointing out the ruling off the ballot
in 24 states of the Commqunist Party
as evidence of their fear of the Com-
munist position.
People have been intimidated and
bullied, because they have signed
their names to a legal petition of
the Communist Party to put its can-
didates on the ballot, Toohey said
in warning that what has happened
to the Communist Party would be
the' fate of all dissenting groups.
An opportunity to address a pub-
lic meeting such as this is not the
usual right of a Communist today in
a country that professes to be a de-
mocracy, Toohey concluded.

Answering semi-serious queries like
"What is a counter-attraction?" and!
"Give your definition of a burlesque,"
the contestants said "Minnesota in
the forthcoming game" and "A take-
off, probably originating in France."
For their good-sportsmanship in
appearing, Prof. John Brumm, of the
journalism department, who acted
as interrogator, awarded Harmon a
chewing-gum crowned football, Miss
Van Winkle a box of 'dates,' Grofe
a tin horn, and Professor Moore a

Also enthusiastically received were
Ferde Grofe's compositions played by
the University Band, and conducted
by the composer. Donn Chown, '39,

Prof. William Revelli led the band in
several new arrangements including
swing and rumba numbers. Betty
Correll, '44 was featured as a trom-
bone soloist.
In an interview following his ap-
pearance on the stage, Grofe asserted
that Michigan's band is the finest
university organization that he has
ever worked with, and that they
gave the best performance of his
compositions ever attempted by an
amateur group. To show his apprecia-
tion Grofe announced that in the
near future he will compose a tonal
poem especially for the band. He has
already started a special arrangement
of his "American Biography" to be
performed by the band.
