Approve City
Charter, 3-1
(Continued from Page 1)
Second Ward winners were
Bruce J. Maslin (R) for city coun-
cil and John W. Rae (R) as coun-
ty supervisor. In the Third Ward,
Charles C. Menefee (R) won the
council seat and Nielson the su-
pervising post.
Fifth Ward supervisor race was
won by Mrs. Carl Rehberg (R) on
a margin of only eight votes. In
the Sixth Ward, Margaret Tows-
ley (R) gained the council seat
and Ruth M. Dana (R) the super-
visor position.
Prof. Charles W. Joiner (R) of
the/Law School was elected to the
city council from the Seventh
Ward. which named Alvah A.
Heald (R) its representative to
the Board of Supervisors.
Record Number Vote
A record 10,109 voters turned
out for the spring elections, and
gave the Democrats surprisingly,
increased support. Mayor Brown,
who defeated his Democratic op-
ponent by a two to one margin
two years ago, was re-elected by
only a 690-vote margin, giving
him an approximate eight to seven
ratio of votes.
Prof. Moore won the city council
presidency from Democrat Conlin
by even a smaller margin, 572
votes. Two years ago, Republican
George W. Sallade won the city
council presidency by a two to
one edge.
Reaction to the vote in favor of
the new charter was generally one
of satisfaction over the convincing
victory for the charter, which will
replace the present 66-year-old
document next April.
Mayor Brown, who had declined
to endorse the charter and was
openly opposed to several of its
provisions, said he plans to start
immediately to rut it into effect.
Promising "to work as hard as I
possibly can to make it work." he
said, "I am going to try to get a
top man to fill the pcst of admini-
strator or none at all."
Democratic a n d Republican
Party officials, Charter Study
Commission members and sup-
porters of the Charter said they
were "very pleased" with the re-
sults of the balloting.

IOLANTHE CAST-Rehearses for the coming Gilbert & Sulli-
van operetta. "Iolanthe" will be presented Wednesday through
Saturday. This comic operetta is about a half-mortal, half-fairy
shepherd who disrupts the British House of Lords. Costumes,

ful. Directed by Jerry Bilik and Claence Stephenson, "Iolanthe"

In spite of possible recount,
Democrats appear certain to have
won two seats on the University
Board of Regents and two seats on
the State Board of Agriculture.
Leading by substantial margins
in the Regents election are Eu-
gene B. Power, of Ann Arbor, and
Paul L. Adams, of Sault Ste.
Two Local Residents
Election of Power makes Ann
Arbor the residence of two of the
University Regents. The other is
Republican Roscoe 0. Bonisteel.
It is the first time in three years
that a Democrat has been named
to the Board of Regents. Murry
D. Van Wagoner was appointed to
fill an unexpired term of office
of Regent Hayward on the latter's
Apparently elected to the Board
of Agriculture-governing body of
Michigan State College - were
Democrats William E. Baker, of
Mesick, and incumbent Dr. Con-
nor D. Smith, of Standish.
Possible Recounts
Recounts may be in order for
the ballots within the next three
"Life in these," said Jim Bor-
licks, "United States certainly
has its moments."
"I well remember," Borlicks
continued, "the day our high
school put on Hamlet, the fa-
mous play. I had the leading
roleand, needlessto say, I was
pretty nervous when the cur-
tain went up on opening night.
"To make matters worse, just
as I was saying, "Ohhhhh what
a rogue and peasant slave am
I," someone in the audience
rudely interrupted me and said,
"No, no, my boy. That should
go 'Oh what a roooooggggue
and peasant slave am I.'
"Needless to say," Borlicks
said quite needlessly, "I was
angry at this interruption and
my temper wasn't improved by
continual interruptions from
this heckler. Between acts I
rushed over to the director and
demanded to know why the
man had not been thrown out
of the theater.
The director looked at me in-
credulously. "Don't you know
who that was?"
"Why no," I confessed. "Who
was it?"
"That man," he said, "was
none other than Roddy Mc-
"The Gargoyle Anti-Arts Is-
sue is coming out Wednesday,"
Borlicks added, also needlessly,

in the present standings of other
state offices.
Dr. Clair L. Taylor, Republican
incumbent superintendent of pub-
lic instruction, now has a slim
lead over Dr. Lynn M. Bartlett,
Grosse Pointe Democrat.
Leading in the race for election
to the State Board of Education
is Republican Stephen S. Nisbet, of
Fremont, over his Democratic ri-
val, John M. Veale, of St. Clair
In the Supreme Court judge
election, one judge nominated by
each party was elected. Circuit
Judge Eugene F. Black--a Dem-
ocratic nominee - was elected
along with Chief Justice Leland
W. Carr, a Republican nominee.
An unusually heavy vote of
more than a million was recorded.

There are interesting, well-paid, permanent jobs for all kinds of engineers in the




a center for women's indoor sports
and as League headquarters. In
1907 the League expanded wom-
en's athletic facilities with the
purchase of Palmer Field.
Four Dormitories Open
By 1921 League activities in-
cluded a Judiciary Council and co-
ordination of women's living units.
There were four dormitories on
campus: Helen Newberry, Betsy
Barbour, Martha Cook, and Adelia
Cheever House, in addition to
many privately owned residences
housing only women students.
Judic's job was to "work out
simple, uniform rules for all
houses where five or more Univer-
sity women lived." League mem-
bership was by this time automat-
ic. Representing the 125 organ-
ized women's houses the Board of
Representatives was m e e t i n g
monthly in the 1920's.
Campaign for a Michigan
League Building had begun in
1921 and resulted in 1929 in the
opening of the present structure.

The League became embroiled in
a major controversy over women's
hours in 1935, when a movement
started to change Friday night
closing hours from 1:30 a.m. to
12:30 a.m. Earlier hours were
backed by Jean Seely, '36, presi-'
dent of the League,' and Dean of
Women Alice Lloyd.
A poll showed campus opinion
was against the change.
Coordinating Center
By the 1940s Assembly and Pan-
hellenic Associations and the
Women's Editor of The Daily
were represented on the League
Council. The League had thus be-
come a coordinating center for all
women's activities.
During the war years most of
the League's energies were devoted
to helping the war effort and en-
tertaining service men who far
outnumbered civilian males on
The last major change in
League organization came in 1953
when the Board of Representa-
tives was abolished and replaced
