Hofman Again

IAep. Clare E. Hoffman-widely
known for his violent opposition to
.the Administration's foreign and
domestic policy-swept into office
yesterday. Hoffman's speeches were

of Tank Battle

tank battle that could decide the
course of the whole campaign.
(The German News Agency DNB
quick ly described the battle as the
biggest tank engagement yet fought
in the desert and said fighting con-
tinued on a vast scale despite Allied
losses of a third of their 500 tanks.)
SA brilliant slash by Australian in-
fantry set the scene for the tank
melee which began yesterday at Tel
El Akakir-"Hill of the Wicked Men"
-a height miles west of what had
been the front line stretching from
the Mediterranean to the Qattara De-
pression when the British, 12 days
ago, opened their offensive with
heavy and continuing Allied air sup-
The Australians cut through the
minefields, swung right toward the
coast and pocketed a considerable
German force in a narrow corridor
between the coastal railroad and the
Major Farm Heads
Saggest a 4-Point
Manpower Program
WASHINGTON, Nov. 3. - (T) -
Heads of three major farm organi-
zations recommended tonight a four-
point manpower program in place of
what they , called "misdirected ef -
forts" of government agencies to
fasten "far - reaching bureaucratic
controls and restrictions" on farmers
and farm workers.'
Albert S. Goss, master of the Na-
tional Giange, Edward A. O'Neal,
president, of the American Farm Bu-
reau Federation, and Ezra I. Benson,
executive secretary of the National
Council of Farmer Cooperatives, said
in a joint statement:
"Under the guise of the war effort,
a social revolution is being perpe-
trated upon the American people. We
are convinced that unless these poli-
cies are immediately abandoned, we
face a disastrous shortage of food."

publican on the basis of early returns.
In the Senatorial contest, Senator
Clyde L. Herring, Democrat, trailed
George A. Wilson, now the state's
In Massachusetts, Senator Henry
Cabot Lodge, Jr., Republican, won
re-election and a second term in the
seat his famous grandfather held in
World War I. A handsome New Deal-
er, Rep. Joseph E. Casey, sent him a
message of congratulations.
The Bay State also was the scene
of a breathtaking guberiatorial tus-
sle between Governor Leverett Sal-
tonstall, Republican *a'ndmember of
one of old New England's first fami-
lies, and Democratic Mayor Roger
Lowell Putnam of Springfield, but
Salstonstall won out for another
Stassen Leads
Thirty - five - year - old Republican
Harold E. Stassen of MWinnesota, who
is soon to join the Navy, enjoyed a
substantial lead over Farmer-Labor
and Democratic opponents. So also
did the Republican senatorial nomi-
nee, Senator Joseph H. Ball.
Orland S. Loomis, Progressive, was
virtually assured of election to the
governorship today with unofficial
returns from the Wisconsin election
five-sixths complete. He had a lead
of 57,293'and was gaining with each
batch of reports..
With only strongly + Republican
towns remaining to be counted, Mrs.
Clare Boothe Luce (Re .) led 'Rep.
Leroy D. Downs (Dem.) by 2,721 votes
in the fourth congressional district.
The vote for 11 towns, inclding all
normally Democratic strongholds 'in
the district, gave Downs 45,062; Mrs.
Luce 47,783.,
Bricker Ahead
Ohio's voters gave Republican Gov-
ernor John W. Bricker an avalanche
of votes over former Representative
John McSweeney and a third term.
Bricker men had been hoping that he
would make a good showing, thus in-
creasing his stature as favorite son
presidential timber in 1944.
In New Jersey, Albert W. Hawkes,
linoleum manufacturer and former
president of the United States Cham-
ber of Commerce, defeated U.S. Sena-
tor William H. Smathers in the Dem-
ocrat's campaign for reelection on
the basis of unofficial returns.
Hamilton Fish, the' Republican rep-
resentative from New York whom
both President Roosevelt and Wendell
L., Willkie tried to retire to private
life, had a slim margin over Ferdi-
nand A. Hoyt, Democratic and Ameri-
can-Labor nominee.
Bridges Selected .
Up in New Hampshire's granite
hills, Senator Styles Bridges, Republi-
can, took a reelection lead over Fran-
cis P. Murphy, long a Republican but
now a Democrat.
The free state of Maryland caught
a bit of national interest when incom-
plete returns indicated Democratic
Governor Herbert R. O'Conor had
an unexpectedly small edge in Balti-
more over his Republican foe, Theo-
dore Roosevelt McKeldin. O'Conor

Sticker Stuck

Gerald L. K. Smith-the late
Huey Long's campaign lieutenant-
was badly marred in the Michigan

opposition of President Roosevelt,
also declared Dewey the winner.
Shortly before 11 p.m., a tabulation
from 3,896 of the state's 9,327 dis-
tricts gave Dewey, 937,039; Bennett,
575,237 and Dean Alfange, American
Labor Party candidate, 122,360.
Dewey issued a statement calling
for united and unswerving loyalty to
President Roosevelt as "our Com-
mander-in-Chief" and asserted "we
are all Americans together."
He urged Americans to redouble
the nation's efforts to bring about
"total,, uncompromising, crushing vic-
tory over our country's enemies."
Dewey's conceded election broke a
20-year span of Democratic governors
in the pivotal Empire State and put
the 40-year-old former racket-buster
prominently into the 1944 Presi-
dential picture.
Dewey's victory came on his second
try for . the, gubernatorial seat. In
1938 he lost to Governor Herbert H.
Lehman by a narrow margin.
Dewey, 40 years old, short, stocky
and energetic as a tugboat, is ac-
customed to pushing successfully
across his goal. Temporarily defeated
n various ventures, he has bounced
back, reassembledihis forces and
plunged ahead to win.
At the age of 31, Dewey took over
as chief assistant U.S. Attorney in
New York City when his boss, George
Z. Medalie, resigned.

to Discuss Phases
of Post-War Plan
Prof. Preston Slosson and Prof.
Howard McClusky will address the
first open meeting of the Post-War
Council at 8 p. m. today in the Grand
Rapids Room of the League.
The program will revolve around
the general theme "Why Plan Now?"
Included in this topic will be a dis-
cussion of the need for post-war plan-
ning and what is being done about it.
In his talk Professor Slosson will
deal with that phase of the problem
relating to the necessity of planning
now. What the national government
has done and what it intends to do in
the way of planning for a post-war
world will be dealt with by Professor
McClusky who has just returned from
Washington where he studied youth
Clifford Straehley, '44, will preside
over the meeting. Following the spee-
ches there will be an open question
and discussion period.

Prof. Leslie White, of the anthro-

lems connected with race at 8 p. m.
today in the Michigan Union.
The lecture is the first large meet-

The Inter-Racial Association is an
University - approved organization
whose aim is to eliminate discrimina-
tion against members of minorities.
Professor White spoke before the
group this summer.

"Sundown" deals with a mistaken
notion of cowardice ana a young
man's psychological reaction to its
influence. It is concerned with
youth's relation to the war and its
subsequent effect toward the im-
provement of a post-war society.
