How quickly can Japan be forced
to sue for peace?
To this question and seven others
a 15 per cent sample of student war
opinion in the lit school gave their
answers, Prof. Theodore M. Newcomb
of the sociology department announ--
ced today.
A three to two majority favored an
answer of "more than one year." One
and one half per cent said "never,"
and a large number-mostly women-
were uncertain.-i

2. How should American effort be
divided, as between the Far East and
European theaters of war?
There was a three to one majority
in favor of continuing all aid to Brit-
ain and Russia. Since the men voted
a two to one majority and the women
a four and one half to one, Professor
Newpomb suggested that "perhaps
men are more 'realistic'."

or Russian bombings of civilians in
The results on this were 50-50 for
the entire college.
Restrictions Favored
' 4. Should speaking in opposition to
our war effort be permitted in the
United States?
A slight majority favored "present
restrictions only." Ten per cent
checked "under no conditions."
5. To what extent is your support
of America's war effort limited be-
cause of the feeling that a wiser policy
on the part of the Roosevelt adminis-
tration could have kept us out of war?
A three to one majority voted "not
at all." Eight per cent checked "lim-
ited greatly."

"Hail Michigan" has been featured
in past programs by the band and
Varsity Glee Club and will be heard
in later concerts and field appear-
ances of the band. It ranks with
"Fight Men of Michigan" and "Var-
sity" and promises to be one of
Michigan's outstanding marches.
The publication of "Hail Michi-
gan" by Mrs. Root climaxes a career
of more than 30 years devoted to
developing University songs. When
she first came to Ann Arbor to found
the University Music House, the only
publications existing were a sheet
:nusic version of "The Victors" and
3 small song book called "The Yel-
low and the Blue."
In 1904 "The Michigan University
Song Book," published by a New
York firm and edited by Franklin
Wagner, '99, '01-04, appeared. It
was not until 1913, five years after
the start of the Union Operas, that
Mrs. Root fulfilled the requests of
the students and compiled the first
edition of "Michigan's Favorite Col-
lege Songs."
The 1913 edition included the music
from the first five operas. Since
then eight editions have been re-
teased, and the book has grown from
160 pages to more than 280. It now
includes views of campus buildings
as well as the music
