American Student Union, will de-.
bate the question, "How Can We Best
Defend America?" at 8 p.m. Monday,
Nov. 11 in the Union Ballroom.
Witt will present his position by

peace in building up a democracy at
home." Professor Slosson will advance
defense by aid to the allies."
The debate is to be sponsored by
thel ocal chapter of the ASU and
will be open to the public free.
Last year a similar debate was
presented when Prof Lawrence Preuss
of the political science department,
Prof. Arthur Smithies of the econom-

"Can America Stay Out of the War?"
Witt at that time maintained that
American entrance into the war would
be a useless waste of life and natural

to Count Leo Tolstoy's famous novel

of America in Washington, D. C., will
conclude this year's lecture series on
"The Nature of Man" at 8 p.m. to-

Going abroad last year, Dr. Slavin

the University of Chicago.
He graduated from Providence

Former Daily Men Will Return

"I regret that I have but one nose to give for Willkie." This was the
battle-cry of Bill Galusha, '42, (above), and Dick Ebbets, '42E, as they
rolled tiny onions with their noses in front of the Union last night.
Galusha and Ebbets were paying off an election bet, which they lost
in the avapn-he of Roosevelt votes Tuesday night.
Had Wilikie 'von, George Baumgarten, '42, and Charles Miller, '41,
would have coaxed those same onions with their own noses. An enthus-
iastic crowd drawn by Barker Miller cheered the crouching figures as
they urged the reluctant onions across the steps of the Union.

There were some reports that
Greek troops had taken over Koritza
but confirmation was lacking. It
was said in Athens, however, that
the Greeks might be in better tactical
position if they would continue dom-

Once in the city, the Greeks would
have to defend it against large Italian
forces still nearby.
Italy's air force bombed the Greek

Late Count Assures
Dickinson Defeat
In Governor Poll
(By The Associated Press)
(EST) President Roosevelt led in
39 states with 468 electoral votes,
Wendell Willkie in 9 with 63.
POPULAR VOTE: With 118,010
of the nation's 127,245 precincts
counted at that time, Roosevelt
polled 25,596,945 and Willkie 21,,-
SENATE: 22 Democrats, 12 Re-
publicans and 1 Progressive elected,
giving Republicans a net gain of 4.
HOUSE: Democrats elected 263,
Republicans 162, American Labor
1, Progressive 3, Independent Dem-
ocrat 1. Democrats took 22 seats
from Republicans, Republicans took
15 from Democrats, Progressives
took 1 from Republicans.
GOVERNORS: 16 Democrats and
13 Republicans elected, 3 undecid-
ed. Republicans ousted five Dem-
ocratic governors; Democrats oust-
ed four Republicans.
A will toward national unity mani-
fested itself yesterday as the after-
math of the bitter, turbulent cam-
paign which resulted in President
Roosevelt's election to serve a tradi-
tion-smashing third term as the na-
tion's Chief Executive.
It was evident in the editorials of
newspapers which had strongly sup-
ported Wendell L. WiIkie the de-
feated Republican nominee, in the
statements of many of the country's
leading men, in the usual exchange
of messages between victor and van-
quished and in a radio address made
by Willkie early in the day.
Republican leaders drew much gra-
tification from the fact that the
President's popular plurality was run-
ning far below his 10,00,000 margin
of 1936. In this a number of them,
including Senator Charles L. Mc-
Nary, the Republican Vice-Presiden-
tial nominee, saw portents of a Re-
publican victory in 1944. The statis-
tics indicated that the party's popu-
lar vote this year would be the largest
in its history.
Detroit, Nov. 6-(P)--The merit
system issue, long-time storm cen-
ter of Michigan politics, has finally
been settled by the electorate with
a whopping endorsement of the Mich-
igan Merit Association's Civil Ser-
vice Amendment.
A 175,000 "yes" margin in Wayne
County overcame a heavy "no" plur-
ality out-state against 439,69 nega-
tvies with 2,451 precincts out of 3,632
On the three other measures the
state balloted upon, metropolitan and
rural voters agreed.
Proposal No. 1, which would have
amended the mill tax limitation, was
snowed under, 534,911 to 427,234 in
2,451 out of 3,632 precincts.
Proposal No. 3, an amendment to
the Motor Carrier Act opposed by the
Detroit Street Railways, lost 660,141
to 425,379 on the basis of returns
from 2,445 of 3,632 precincts.
Proposal No. 4, asking regulation
of professional dental practices, won
out 539,460 to 339,016 with reports
in from 2,439 of 3,623 precincts.

Tickets for the concert may bej

Born in Czechoslavakia of Russian
parents, Serkin was talented enough
at 5 years of age to warrant tempt-
ing musical tour offers. but his debut
was not arranged until he was twelve.
After appearing with mhe Vienna
Symphony orchestra at that time, he
toured Europe and has been a con-
tinental favorite ever since. His Amer-

when after one performance seven
years ago he established his reputa-
tion here.

People's Interest In Politics
Shown By Vote, Slosson Says

The magnitude of the Democratic
landslide is an impressive indication
of the intense interest the American
people have in political activity, Prof.
Preston Slosson of the history de-
partment declared yesterday in an
address given in the auditorium of
the Kellogg Institute "A Post Mor-
tem of the Election."
Tuesday's yote, viewed with the
added perspective of past landslides
in national elections, he said, brings
out sharply the willingness of the
country to accept changes in govern-
ment. Landslides, he observed, have
become the rule instead of the ex-

percent of the nation's press opposed
the reelection, he added, is conclusive
proof that the nation prepared its
own decision. Under these conditions,
he said, party dictatorship would be
highly improbable.
Speaking of the issue about which
the election revolved, Professor Slos-
son emphasized that the variance-in
the party platforms of the Republi-
cans and the Democrats was so min-
ute as to be unimportant. The only
clearly defined issue, he maintained,
was the third term question; and even
that, he added, was pressed as much
