'Unprepared
For Peace,'
Ruthven Says
President Addresses
'U' Press Club, Asks
For Adult Education
"The answer to 'Are we prepared
for peace?' is no, definitely no, and
we on campus need your aid in pre-
paring the people for it," Pres. Alex-
ander G. Ruthven declared in an
address before nearly 80 Michigan
editors at a dinner of the 27th an-
nual meeting of the University Press
Club last night at the Union.
Unlike our British cousins, , who
have considered post-war problems
and problems in education since
Dunkerque, Americans are not look-
ing at the future intelligently, Ruth-
ven said. We talk of free enterprise
but do not realize that. uncontrolled,
it leads to totalitarianism. Many of
us speak of reconversion of our social
institutions, of going back to old
ways, but our "problem is not of
reconversion, but of adjusting to a
new world," he added.
Stresses Adult Education
Stressing the importance of edu-
cation beyond the school years, Ruth-
ven proposed that adult education
follow the. pattern set by Great
Britain and on the Continent. If we
fail to adopt a fuller program of
adult education in this country, he
said, people will remain uninformed
on social issues and will be easy prey
to bigotry and political opportunists.
Uuthven presented four ques-
tions which he stated must be met if
we are to hold a realistic view of
America's position in the post-war
world. The first was, "Can we exist
as a nation with the sole protection
of military force." His second ques-
tion was, "Can we insure good will
between nations with economic trea-
ties and dplomatic relations or do
we need more fundamental under-
standings between nations?" The
third was, "Can we have democratic
ideals without intelligent discussion
of important issues?" and four, "Can
we reasonably expect our schools to
meet their future responsibilities
with inadequate staffs and facili-
ties?"
Glee Club Sings
Directly preceding Ruthven on
the program, the Men's Glee Club,
directed by Prof. David Mattern,
sang for the editors and their wives
and several members of the Michigan
House of Representatives. The ad-
dress was followed by a showing of
the motion picture record, "Michigan
on the March" and motion pictures
of the Michigan-Purdue football
game.

FDR's Return To
Capital To Be Aired

dent Roosevelt's post-election return
to Washington tomorrow will be
broadcast by major networks, but it
was not known definitely tonight
whether the President would speak
on the program.
The networks will go on the air at
9 a.m., Eastern War Time, with a
description of Mr. Roosevelt's arrival

from Hyde Park, N.Y., where he
received the election returns.

Heavy Task
Faces FDR
On Return
Possibility of Cabinet
Changes Suggested
By The Associated Press
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.-President
Roosevelt returns triumphantly to
Washington tomorrow, to a tremen-
dous reception and to tremendous
tasks.
Waiting for him at the end of a
parade from Union Station to the
white house is a hefty array of prob-
lems that will cram his schedule
from now until his fourth term
starts.
World Conference Scheduled
They center around:
Another Roosevelt-Churchill-Sta-
lin conference on war and world
security, vacancies in the adminis-
tration, possible cabinet changes, de-
mands for remodelling the Little
Steel wage formula, whipping to-
gether annual and budget messages
for Congress. And those weren't all.
But, for the time being, Washing-
ton itself wasn't interested in them.
The national capital hatched spur-
of-the-moment plans to turn out the
town-with bands, bunting and bal-
lyhoo. Vice-President-elect Harry S.
Truman flew eastward from Missouri
to join the procession.
FDR Still in Lead
Just for the record, still incom-
plete tallies showed Roosevelt and
Truman topping challengers Thomas
E. Dewey and John W. Bricker by:
36 states to 12.
432 electoral votes to 99.
The winners had 23,831,460 popu-
lar votes to 20,926,079 for Dewey and
Bricker, with some 10,000 precincts
to go.
The electoral lead jumped when
tabulation of some of the final Mich
igan precincts in the Detroit indus-
tril area swung, the state into the
democratic column.
mAs for the President's docket, some
things can wait, but a decision must
be made promptly on the date and
spot' for the parley with Britain's
prime minister and Russia's premier.
Kapers Review
To Be Given
Billed as a variety and activities
show, Kampus Kapers will bring to-
gether outstanding campus talent in
an all student show to be held at
7:30 p.m. Wednesday in Hill Audi-
torium.
Highlighted by that campus come-
dian, Doc Fielding, as master of
ceremonies, the Kapers will bring to
Hill Auditorium stage outstanding
talent in six big acts.
The show is being arranged and
sponsored by The Daily, the Union
and the League to "revive a spirit
among the students in campus
affairs."
Kampus Kapers has been officially
approved by the Student Affairs
Committee and the show has re-
ceived the plaudits of both campus
and faculty leaders.
Assistant Dean of Students W. B.
Rea asserted that the program looks
good and that the show deserves 10
per cent campus support.
Those campus favorites who will
be playing the Union dance in the
Rainbow Room tonight, Billy Lay-
ton and his orchestra featuring Judy
Ward will provide the music in the
show. Layton said that some new
arrangements of campus favorites
have been .prepared for the show.
Comely Judy Chayes who had one

of the feminine leads in the Co. D
show "Rumor Has It" will sing her
new arrangement of Sugar Blues in
her own inimitable style. Dick Thom-
as, who did the musical work for the
Army show will accompany Miss
Chayes on the piano.
Churchill Asks New
Meeting With FDR
LONDON, NOV. 9-(P)-Prime
Minister Churchill said today "it is
high time" that he, President Roose-
velt and Premier Stalin had another
conference. He decided that "the
prospects of such a meeting have
been vastly improved by the presi-
dential election in the United States,
for which we waited so breathlessly
on Tuesday last."

W~ill Present
Unique Display
The University Marching Band,
composed of approximately 120 stu-
dents and servicemen under the di-
rection of Prof. William D.' Revelli,
will present a colorful, historical
Victory pageant at the half of the
homecoming Wolverine-Illini game
on Armistice Day tomorrow.
Preceding the pageant by the
Marching Band, members of the Bat-
tle Creek high school band will make
a formation, spelling out "Hello,
Grads."
The Marching Band will then
make various formations after which
characters representing such histo-
ric events as the American Revolu-
tion, Civil War, World War I, Anglo-
Russo-American agreements, will ap-
pear. Students from Allen-Rumsey
house in the West Quad are partici-
pating in these formations. Alice
Rosenquist, a 5 ft. 9 in. student, will
portray the Goddess of Liberty.
Before the entrance of each histo-
ric character, the band will play the
following numbers: "America,"
"Yankee Doodle," "Glory, Glory Hal-
lelujah," "Over There," "America the
Beautiful," "Victory March," "Mead-

rors" in precincts not yet challenged,
which may bob up as the official can-

FDR's Strength in Wayne County
President Roosevelt's comeback,
after having trailed through the
early tabulations was amazing. Dew-
ey had piled up outstate a lead of
213,638 votes, which in any normal
year would have been sufficient to
win. Wayne County, casting a rec-
ord of nearly 860,000 votes, however,
gave the president a tidal wave ma-
jority of nearly 231,000 as reflected
in the returns as they now stand on
the election workers' official records.
The nearly complete tabulation es-
tablished that a new record had been
established by the size of the Michi-
gan vote, and the fact that it was
Wayne's unprecedented turnout of
electors which made the record told
the story of Roosevelt's amazing
comeback. Wayne is a traditionally
powerful stronghold of the Demo-
cratic party.
Yet the Republican state ticket
had swept the state by landslide
margins, from top to bottom.

Casualties Total
Half Million
WASHINGTON, Nov. 9.-(-P)-Al-
most three years of war have cost
more than a half million American
battle casualties- dead, wounded,
missing or prisoners.
The Army said today that its
casualties, from Pearl Harbor Dec.
7, 1941, through last Oct. 28 to-
talled 437,356. The latest report
for Navy, Marine and Coast Guard
personnel accounts for 71,839.
The Army total represents an in-
crease of 20,235 since the report. A
week ago which covered the period
through Oct. 21. Secretary of War
Stimson said part of this increase
was due to a revision now being made
in the casualty information system
so as to bring the figures up to date.
It was explained later that about
25 per cent of the increase resulted
from the bookkeeping change over.
