Dr. David D H-enry, president
of Wayne University, said yester -
day that lie will go to the justice
department and to thne State Sen-
ate investigating committee for
further information on the Amer-
iean Youth for Democracy.
"Because of confusion on this
issue, we are seeking information
to determine whether or not we
...... would be justified in asking the
local chapter of AYD to disasso-
ciate itself from affiliation with

Confusion over a report that 10
per cent of the valid ballots in
the Student Legislature election
were discarded because of "in-
sufficient preference" was cleared
up yesterday by Bob Taylor, Chiief
Teller in the vote count.
The election committee did not
invalidate any ballots at the be-
ginning of the counting because of
insufficient choices, Taylor said.
Yet a ballot indicating as many
as 15 choices may have been "dis-
carded" after many redistributions
"because all of the candidates
voted for had already been either
elected or eliminated,"
Misinterprettion or [lire ph rase
"insufficient preerence' had led~
student Malcolm Mac Gregor and
others to demand a statement ex-
plaining the phrase in letters to
The Daly.
Taylor explained that "every
properly stamped ballot, regard-
less of how many choices are in-
dicated" is counted for its first
choice on the first tally. "When a
candidate receives the necesary
quota of ballots (inl this case 108,
exactly ti nt ri, rn be' o ballt
coming to that candidate acre e
distributed accordinp to their niex
preferences."
A ballot for a winning candi-
date will stay in his pile perma-
nently if it happens to be one of
those 108 needed to elect him. But
if none of the voter's choices have
the necessary 108, or if by chance
ail of his choices receive enough
votes to win without his ballot, it
will be discarded, Taylor said.
The Legislature employs the
Hare "PR" system of Proportional
Representation, wv h i c h, it is
claimed, gives fuller repesenrta-
tion 'to large minority groups
'which under the ordinary "a-
jority rule'' procedure hrave little
voice in government.

State Funds Necessary
President Henry said that his
university was "on guard" against
having freedom of learning and
inquiry and of civil rights of stu-
dents as individuals and in groups
used for political purposes.
He said also that an effort to
block state expenditures on build-
ings projected for Wayne Univer-
sity until the American Youth for
Democracy is banned would be
at astrophic.''
"Approximately 3000 additional

Ileifer Drive
Needy Europeans
To Receive Livestock
Several campus organizations,
including Collegiate Sorosis, Helen
Newberry Residence, Canterbury
Club and the Congregational-Dis-
ciples Guild, have already sent in
their pledges for the "Heifers for
Europe" drive which will off i-
cially begin Monday, Seymour
Goldstein, chairman, announced
The money collected during the
drive, which is part of a national
movement sponsored by the Breth-
ren Service Committee, will be
ised to purchase two-year-old
heifers and send them to needy
farmers in Europe. The heifers,
which cost approximately $160,
are inoculated and government in -
spectedI anrd shi pped tro g a
reputable relief agency to any des-
ignated area or individual. Field
representatives assure thec donors
that the( animals will be received
by really needy farmers.
These farmers promise t, give
any extra milk to children and
tihe new calves to other farmers in
the community. This provides
thein with the opportunity for re-
stocking their farms.
The government has become
aware of the conditions prevalent
in Europe following the discon-
tinuance of UNRRA and there is
a $3,000,000,000 oan bill for relief
before Congress now, Seymour S
Goldstein, president of the Univer-
sity Famine Com mvtte, said. How-
ever, until this bill is massed, these
suffering people must rely on such
things as the heifer project to re-
lieve their condition, he said.

threatened to reduce average
daily consumption to 1,100 calories
