IN SPITE OF DEFEAT:
Slosson Pleased with Support at Polls
THE MICHIGAN DAILY
What's Up in the Dorm
By RUSS CLANAHAN
"Bruised but not broken" would
best describe Prof. Preston W. Slos-
son's attitude toward his defeat by
Rep. Earl C. Michener in the Sec-
ond Congressional District race
Expressing surprise at the num-
ber of votes he did receive, Prof.
Slosson said he had not expected
to win in a district "which normal-
ly goes Republican by 2 to 1."
HE POINTED OUT, however,
that he led both Truman and
Gov.-Elect G. Mennen Williams in
number of votes received in the
Ile considered his candidacy
especially worthwhile because "it
helped bring in as candidates a
number of liberal Democrats who
might not otherwise have run."
Prof. Slosson was undecided
as to whether he would run for
office again, but definitely stated
that he would continue active in
county and state Diemocratic
politics. He said his future can-
didacy would depend on two fac-
1. Whether other liberal can-
didates could be induced to run
for office in opposition to the con-
servative point of view.
2. Whether the issues were pri-
marily domestic or international.
Prof. Slosson said he was particu-
larly interested in American for-
TURNING TO the national elec-
tion, Prof. Slosson said the results
were positive proof of the insigni-
ficance of both the Democratic
splinter groups and the isolation-
He predicted that in the elec-
tions of 1952 the Progressive
Party would be virtually ex-
Prof. Slosson also thought the
Dixiecrats "will crawl back under
the big tent" of the Democratic
Party now that Truman has won.
If comprehensive civil right legis-
lation is passed, he thinks the
States Rights Democrats will re-
main in the Democratic Party at
least until the results of the 1952
national convention are known.

ADA Is Told
An organized liaison between
farmers and labor must be the
basis of any effective liberal poli-
tical party, said Bill Shore, Na-
tional Chairman of Students for
Democratic Action before a meet-
ing of the local ADA yesterday.
Mr. Shore, former University of
Minnesota student and lieutenant
in the Hubert Humphrey cam-
paign, emphasized that Demo-
cratic success in the past election
was the result of more popular in-
terest in party platforms than in
He pointed to the comparative
youth of such successful candidates
as Humphrey and Michigan's gov-
ernor-elect G. Mennen Williams
as symbolic of the vitality and
progressiveness of the Democratic

HAVING SCORED several suc-
cesses in Europe, Pinza arrived on
the American scene in 1929, after
the Metropolitan had been unable
to perform the well-loved "Don
Giovanni" for the preceding 20
years, because there was no singer
capable of handling the lead role.
With Pinza's advent the opera
was revived as new life was put
into the company by the ener-
Since his debut, Pinza has
starred in 60 different operatic
roles along with numerous concert
and radio appearances, and has
long been a virtual mainstay in
American music circles.
