Wolotsky said.

mittee, announced yesterday.

and Maj. Gen. Aurand will accom-
pany this section. State troops and

ond section. A detachment of loca
officers will complete the parade.

"Students at the University here
seem to care little about the war or
politics," Carlos Plaza and Juan Pat-
tillo, students from Chile, said re-
cently in an interview at the Inter-
national Center.
Both students are graduates of the
University of Chile and have been
studying engineering here. Pattillo
left last week to work with the State
Highway Department in California
where he will receive practical train-
ing in civil engineering. After spend-
ing six months there, he will return
to Chile to help in the road building
program there.
Plaza also expects to return to
Chile; but his role will be in the con-
struction of electric plants. "In a
period of about 18 years," he said,
"they expect to bring electricity to
every part of the country. They aim
to develop electricity to the point
where it will be as extensive and
cheap there as it now is in Norway
or Sweden."
"The interest here in politics is
rather academic," they agreed.
Interest in Politics
They then explained that students
in South American universities mix
a great deal with the townspeople,
that they are very much concerned
with politics and with the adminis-
tration of the universities. "The effi-
ciency of studying is weakened by too
much interest in politics," Plaza
said. "There they lose too much time;

Still Candidate
CHICAGO, Dec. 29.-(P)-William
J. Grace, Secretary of the Republican
Nationalist Aevival Committee, said
today petitions would continue to be
circulated to draft 0o1. Robert F.
McCormick, editor and publisher of
the Chicago Tribune, as a candidate
for President in the Illinois prefer-
ential primary despite his expressed
wish not to run.
'"The 'Draft McCormick' movement
didn't ask Col. McCormick to allow
the use of his name, and it will not
be stopped by the exchange of let-
ters," Grace said in a statement.
"The petition signing will go on
The McCormick for President peti-
tion will be filed on time. This is
not a fake like the 1040 'Draft Roose-
velt' movement. This is a real, peo-
ple's movement to draft a man into
leadership to save our republic."
Ben L. Berve, Republican State
Central Committee chairman, had
asked Col. McCormick in a letter foi
"an expression from you on this all-
important subject," of whether the
Colonel would permit his name tc
be entered as a Presidential candi-
date in Illinois.

"The students in South American
countries have unions to accomplish1
whatever they want to do in com-
mon," he continued. "Some membersl
of the union are actual militant
members of political parties. Some- .
times the unions sign manifestos in
regard to government action and this
influences government policy to al
certain extent. And the political par-
ties in South America have sections
for youth. There is always a struggle
between the young politicians who
want to control the unions and those
who don't want the unions to be
politically controlled. Students there
tend to be more radical than con-
Courses Take Six Years
Pattillo said that the University of
Chile is like a European university.
The course is for six years instead of
four and is less specialized. He said
English is compulsory in high school
and students study it for six years.
Most education is paid for by the
state, he said, and university tuition
is six dollars a year.
"The Radical Party is in power in
Chile," Plaza said, "and there is a
tendency toward the left now. The
shift to the right in the United
States surprised me."

Trial Is January 11
William H. Padgett, age 50, inmate
of Jackson State Prison, convicted of
murder in 1936, was today granted a
postponement for a retrial from Jan.

fense attorney will be in Washing-
ton, D.C. on the former date.
Padgett, convicted of killing Clif-
ford Stang, Ann Arbor detective, on
March 21, 1935, was granted a re-
trial by the State Supreme Court be-
cause of legal irregularities involved

Supreme Court decided that the pre-
siding judge, George W. Sample,
made illegal use of the judge's right
to comment on the testimony pre-
sented. ,
County Prosecutor Francis Kam-
mens and Alfred Rapp will handle
the prosecution.
Padgett has been held in the
Washtenaw County Jail since Nov. 4
