Is Commended by Grew, Vandenburg
In conjunction with Dumbarton Oaks Week held in Ann Arbor at the
end of January, members of the League of Women Voters circulated peti-
tions calling for the establishment of an international organization as soon
as possible.
These petitions, which were drawn up by Prof. Preston Slosson of the
history dept., were sent to prominent officials in Washington, accompanied
by an explanation of what the citizens of Ann Arbor were doing to support
the Dumbarton Oaks proposals. Printed below are a few of the answers

retary of State Joseph C. Grew to
Mayor Leigh J. Young commending
him on Ann Arbor's establishment
of a Dumbarton Oaks week:
Dear Mayor Young:
It was with deep gratification that
I learned of your recent proclamation
of Dumbarton Oaks Week at Ann
Arbor. This demonstration of active
citizenship and intelligent public in-
terest in a vital problem is greatly
appreciated by this Department. It is
particularly significant that this week
of public discussion, initiated by the
Ann Arbor League of Women Voters
and the University of Michigan Post-
War Council, was participated in by
practically all of the churches, the
civic- and service associations, and
the educational institutions of Ann
A The Dumbarton Oaks Proposals
were intended to be exploratory and
preliminary in their nature, and last
fall they were given to the people of
this country and to those of other
nations in the hope that discussion of
so pressing a problem might contrib-
ute new points of view and enable us
to perfect the work which we had
then. begun. You may be assured,
Mr. Mayor, that the results of such)
discussion are carefully studied by
this Government. We sincerely trust
that our present efforts, with the sup-
port of the American nation, may lead
to results which will substantially
lessen the future possibility of such
tragic events as those through which
the peoples of the world are now pass-

Finns Crowd Polls
For Crucial Vote

Finns jammed polling places in great
numbers today and political observ-
ers predicted that at least 70 per cent
of the qualified 2,200,000 personl
would cast ballots in an election gen-
erally considered "crucial" for Fin-
land's future.
No incidenta were reported any-
where in the country and the polls
will remain open until 8 p.m. Sun-
day in this first parliamentary elec-
tion in almost six years.

Women Voters by Senator Arthur
H. Vandenburg :
My dear Mrs. Lovejoy:
This will acknowledge your letter
of January 29th with its enclosed
I am sure I do not need to tell you
that I am in substantial agreement
with the statement which these peti-
tions present. I deeply hope that we
may make real progress this time in
creating some degree of dependablej
peace with justice.
I shall be glad to present your peti-
tions on the floor of the Senate.
I trust this reply to you may be
considered an answer to all who have
joined you in this message.
-A. H. Vandenburg
The letter received from Sen-
ator Homer Ferguson was address-
ed to Mrs. John Benson, also of
the League of Women Voters:
Dear Mrs. Benson:
Thank you so very much for your
fine report on the Dumbarton Oaks
Week which you had at Ann Arbor.
I certainly want to commend your or-
ganization for putting on such a
splendid program and hope that you;
may be able to influence other com-
munities to do the same things.
I assure you that I shall continue
to do everything I can toward the
formation of an international or-
ganization to establish a just and
permanent peace in the post-war
-Homer Ferguson
Rep. Earl C. Michener, Congres-
sional representative from this dis-
trict, wrote the following letter to
Mrs. Benson:
Dear Mrs. Benson:
Just to acknowledge receipts of
numerously signed petition of Ann
Arbor citizens expressing their views
concerning the attitude of our coun-
try toward future world peace.
I am glad to have this petition and,
speaking in general terms, I am in
agreement with the objectives. Of
course this whole problem is so vast,
so complicated, and so delicate fromt
an international standpoint, that a
specific, definite and unchangeable
formula cannot be written by any one1
country at the moment.

The examination consists of eight
general tests and an advanced test

Originated in 1937 for four east-
