U.S. Commissioner Sayre
To Open Oratorical Series

: :
: z

Speaking on "Our Relations with
the Philippines," the Hon. Francis B.
Sayre, United States High Commis-
sioner to the Philppines at the time
of the Japanese invasion, will open
the Oratorical Association series Nov.
16 in Hill Auditorium.
Sayre, who succeeded Paul V. Mc-
Nutt as High Commissioner to the
Islands in June, 1939, has maintained
a consistently friendly attitude to-
ward Philippine independence. In
contrast to McNutt, who insisted on
retention of the Islands, Sayre de-
clared in Manila that the Philippines
Student Choir

Ann Arbor Bird
Club Is Formed
Representatives of the Michigan
Audubon Society and the Detroit
Bird Club, presided over by Joseph J.
Hickey, met in Ann Arbor October
14 to form an Ann Arbor Bird Club.
The organization will endeavor to
arouse greater knowledge and ap-
preciation of birds'among the people
of Ann Arbor and will serve .s a
gathering place for all those inter-
ested in ornithology.

would be granted their independence
in 1946.
Before taking office, Sayre gained
familiarity with the Islands as chair-
man of the Joint Preparatory Com-
mittee on Philippine Affairs and as
a member, since 1934, of the body
planning new economic ties between
the United States and the proposed
independent Philippines.
Wary of the possibility that the
Filipinos may be steered toward dic-
tatorship, Sayre has insisted that in
the years preceding independence
they must learn how a democracy
should be run.
In 1933, President Roosevelt ap-
pointed him Assistant Secretary of
State in which position he worked
directly under Secretary of State
Hull in the formulation of the recent
reciprocal trade treaties. His earlier
diplomatic experience was gained as
adviser in foreign affairs to ' the
Siamese government.
A member of the faculty of the
Harvard Law School for more than
twenty years, Sayre served also as
assistant to the president of Williams
Sayre has written a number of
books on law and international
affairs, the most recent being "The
Way Forward" (1939), "America
Must Act" (1935) and "Cases on the
Law of Admiralty" (1929).

If the ballots total less than 48,-

the winner. In past elections the
upper economic one-fourth and the
older groups have been the mainstay
of the G.O.P. Also, a larger percen-

conversely, the lower economic third

If these last two named groups
push the total vote past that 48,000,-

out, is unpredictable and may upset
all calculations. He also added that
it is votes which count and not

G.O.P. Ahead
In Michigan
Reapportionment May
Give Democrats Some
Detroit Aid in House
- By The Associated Press
LANSING, Nov. 1.-Both Republi-
cans and Democrats concede that the
G.O.P. will retain its control of both
the State House of Representatives
and Senate in Tuesday's election.
The Democrats look for a small
increase in their numerical strength
in the house, principally due to re-
apportionment of legislative seats
giving Detroit-a stronghold of their
party-21 instead of 17 seats. Neither
party expects much change in the
senate partisan lineup.
Last Election Score
In the last election, 74 Republicans
and 26 Democrats were elected to the
House, while 25 Republicans and
seven Democrats were elected to the

ges of legislative graft, which has
caused the imprisonment and sen-
tence to imprisonment of 12 legis-
lators, has heightened interest in the
Ten house members convicted of
taking graft in a conspiracy have
lost their seats. Two others await
trial, one on a charge of perjury and
the other on a graft warrant.
Reapportionment of Seats
Reapportionment of legislative
seats has raised the house member-
ship of Detroit, a Democratic strong-
hold, from 17 to 21 members, and
the Republicans have not seriously
challenged the Democratic claim
that all of 21 will be Democrats.
The Deorai high command
says it will also elect a Democrat
from Macomb County, one from
Oakland County, may pick up a cou-
ple of additional Upper Peninsula
seats, and one from St. Clair County
because of dissension among Repub-
licans in the latter county over a
primary election contest.
The Senate was not reapportioned.
Truman 'Hits' Dewey
-(VP)-Gov. Thomas E. Dewey was
described tonight by Senator Harry
S. Truman, the Democratic vice pres-
idential candidate, as a "political
faker" and "scoffer."
In an address prepared for a Dem-
ocratic rally, Truman reviewed the
work of the Senate War Investigat-
ing committee,
