Governors Set
Election Plans
New York Governor
Returns to Albany
By The Associated Press
Aug. 4-Leaving behind a prediction
that the Republican presidential
ticket would win in November, "re-
gardless of the war news," Gov.
Thomas E. Dewey headed home to-
night for a week-end rest after a
"precedent-making" meeting of the
nation's GOP governors.
Winding up a series of political
conferences after a two-day meeting
with the other Republican govern-
ors, the GOP nominee told a news
conference a complete unity of think-
ing had been achieved as between 26
points of views represented by the
heads of the state governors who
were present.
Hits At New Deal
The governors issued a policy state-
ment on 14 points, took a final swing
at the New Deal and called for "per-
sonal contact" between state execu-
tives and the President in the fu-
ture to avoid 'costly misunderstand-
A reporter then wanted to know if
Dewey thought news of the Allied
advances in the European war thea-
ter would benefit Republican chances
in November.
Convinced of Victory
"I am convinced that the Republi-
can party will win, regardless of the
war news," Dewey replied. "I am
exceedingly happy at the news of
satisfactory military progress."
political, labor, agriculture, business
Dewey reiterated charges that the
New Deal for 12 years had permitted
controversies to arise - between local
and federal governments to which he
said the Republicans had found solu-
tions they believed satisfactory. He
added the observation that, in his
opinion, Democratic governors could
agree largely with the GOP confer-
ence findings.
Agreement Reached
"The net result is that one of the
most vexatious problems has been
settled as a matter of national policy
by our party and to the complete
satisfaction of governors represent-
ing three-fourths of the people of
the country," he said.
The governors had left for their
homes after arming Dewey and his
running mate, Gov. John W. Bricker
of Ohio, with a 14-point campaign
document on domestic issues as a
sort of addition to the national plat-
They said the great objectives they
sought for America could be reached
only through federal-state coopera-
tion within the spirit and letter of
the constitution.

Former Students in Service
Express Views To Counselor



LEND-LEASE PLANES AT NOME, RUSSIA-BOUND-A line of U. S.-Built Lend-Lease planes to be
flown to Russian combat areas by Soviet airmen stretches across the airstrip at the American Alaskan
Wing's Nome base. Red star of Russia is on planes.

From England to India, from'
islands in the Pacific to Italy and
Iran, have come letters of experi-
ences and questions from former
University students to the counselor
in religious education, Dr. Edward
W. Blakeman, who now has more
than 50 military addresses on his
mailing list.
Although their ranks 'range from
privates and three stripers to the
oak leaves of a major, they all have
similar questions to ask about the
University's institutions and their
favorite professors, Dr. Blakeman
said. Reluctant to tell very much
about their life overseas and experi-
ences, he continued, they neverthe-
less are curious about the campus
and the student groups that they left
Interested in Activities
Among the organizations that re-
ceive the most inquiries are the
spring and fall Parleys that were
sponsored by the Student Senate, the
marital relations lectures and Group
X, the socialistic liberal group for-
merly at the University.
Some students now in the Army
have complained that there is not
very much chance for formal dis-
cussion groups and wonder if the
British system of forums and classes
could be set up, Dr. Blakeman ad-
ded. Many are reported concerned
with the post-war world to which
they will return and are interested
in the work of the Post-War Council
in studying this field.
Aware of Civilian Problems
They are aware of the tensions
between the man in uniform and the

Bureau of Appointments Lists
Many Openings for U' Stdents

To find work which suits the grad-
uates and graduates who suit de-
mands for workers is the task of
the University Bureau of Appoint-
ments and Vocational Guidance,
which is headed by Dr. T. Luther
The demand for trained people is
great, with the field of stenographic
work continuing to send out the
greatest call for workers. Business
firms want college trained secretaries
for their better positions, girls who
have had shorthand and typing in
addition to the regular curriculum.
Secretarial Training Needed
The government, formerly a source
of employment for those with social
science and language majors with no
secretarial training, has closed its
civil service exam for graduate ap-
pointments. Industrial firms request
graduates with social science or
language majors, but clerical train-
ing is also required.
Chemistry, physics and all fields
related to engineering, public health
and the biological sciences reflect
accelerated wartime demands.
Fewer Social Workers Needed
This summer has brought a slack
in the Bureau's usual number of re-
quests for social workers. During the
rest of the year, possibilities in this
Speech Parley
Will Be Held
A conference on speech pedagogy
and speech instruction in the second-
ary schools, sponsored by the De-
partment of Speech, will be conduct-
ed by Prof. Karl F. Robinson of the
speech department of the State ,Uni-
versity of Iowa at 4 p. m. today in
the West Conference Room of the
Rackham building.
Prof. Robinson holds the chair-
manship of the secondary school
committee of the National Associa-
tion of Teachers of Speech and is
advisory editor-elect of the Quarter-
ly Journal of Speech.
Director of Teacher Training in
Speech at the University of Iowa,
Prof. Robinson received his master's
degree in 1936 from the University
of Michigan and subsequently taught
at Albion College and Northwestern
University before going to the Uni-
versity of Iowa.

field are good, even for graduates
with only a B. A. degree.
Requests For Writers
Traditionally, journalists are pic-
tured as having to "go out after"
their jobs. It is true that newspaper
editors do not come running to the
Bureau of Appointments for their re-
porters, Dr. Purdom said, but the
Bureau does make contacts with news
agencies and journals. These con-
tacts often result in positions for the
graduates. Calls for writers are
usually received from advertising and
publicity departments of large com-
The Bureau always has good open-
ings in the merchandising field for
the college graduate. Most depart-
ment stores have a permanent train-
ing program and assure good post-
war positions.
]Defendants Are
Denied Acquittal
Attorneys Prepare
Arguments for Jury
MASON, MICH., Aug. 4-(/P)-Mo-
tions for directed verdicts of innocent
for all of the 22 legislative graft trial
defendants were denied today by cir-
cuit judge John Simpson.
The special trial judge held that
the issues involved in the base were
subjects for the jury to decide, and
ordered the defense attorneys to be
prepared Monday to begin their ar-
guments to the jury.
Bribery Is Charged
The five finance company officials
and 17 members of the 1939 legis-
lature who are respondents are ac-
cused of exchanging bribes to influ-
ence legislation affecting the inter-
ests of finance companies operating
in the state.
Haggerty assailed what he said
was evidencesinsaihe trial that circuit
judge Leland W. Carr's one-man
grand jury provided money to pay
part of the living expenses of Major
Charles F. Hemans, a lobbyist who
gave sensational state's evidence in
the trial, and to Ernest J. Prew, for-
mer finance company official in De-
troit who has pleaded guilty and
testified for the prosecution.
Grand Jury Blamed
He contended also that the grand
jury paid Joseph C. Roosevelt, He-
mans' assistant, board and room and
gave Roosevelt "remuneration for
his family" over a long period of
months while preparing for trial.
"It is just as illegal for the special
prosecutor in this case to do these
things as it would be for the defense
to spend large gobs of money to bring
witnesses here and maintain them in
luxury," Haggerty argued.
The case is expected to be present-
ed to the jury August 11, for its ver-

Colleges Ready
To Administer
New G.I. Bill
LANSING, Aug. 4-(P)-Dr. Eu-
gene B. Elliott, State Superintendent
of Public Instruction, reported today
26 Michigan colleges, junior colleges
and universities were ready to start
the Veterans Training Program un-
der the new G. I. Bill of Rights law.
In addition, he said, three others
have requested approval but have
not yet been inspected to determine
whether they meet qualifications.
Under the law the Federal Gov-
ernment will reimburse the institu-
tions for actual cost of educating
veterans, up to $500 a year. The vet-
eran-student will receive $50 a month
living costs if he is single, $75 if he
is married.
The education program is offered
to veterans who were under 25 years
of age when they entered service
and who served 90 days or more be-
fore receiving honorable discharge,
and the government will continue
the payments for training for as
many months over a year as the
number of months the veteran serv-
ed in excess of 90 days.
Institutions approved for the pro-
gram, Elliott said, include Calvin Col-
lege, Grand Rapids Junior College,
Highland Park Junior College, Hope
College, Marygrove College, Michi-
gan College of Mining and Technolo-
gy, Michigan State College, Muske-
gon Junior College, Muskegon Junior
College, Northern Michigan College

Anti-Japanese Prejudice in the Unit-
ed States" at 8 p. m. Monday in the
