War Within 25 Years,
SaysPurdue Student Poll


Toledo Student Huekster Eyes
Ohio's Gubernatorial Post

A gloomy outlook on the
chances for peace is the typical
attitude of American youth at the
present, according to the latest'
Purdue Opinion Poll.
Nearly half of the 10,000 stu-
dents polled by Purdue University
staff members expect a war with-
in five years, while two-thirds were
confident of war within 25 years.
In spite of this pessimism, many
were hopeful about the possibility
of success for such measures as
international control of atomic en-
ergy, an international police force,
and some form of world govern-
Favor Stockpiling
They almost all favored continued
stockpiling of atomic bombs by the
U. S., however.
The idea of a world government

Russian Move
WASHINGTON, June 26-(P)_-
American officials are studying
the possibility that the Russians:
may be trying to force a revival
of Big Four Foreign Minister ne-
gotiations on Germany with their
crack-down on the Western
Powers in Berlin.
This speculation grows out of
the emphasis placed on Big Four
agreement in the communique is-
sued at Warsaw two days ago by
Russian and seven eastern Euro-
pean satellite states.
The Berlin situation is regarded
here with the upmost seriousness.
Nevertheless officials are uniform-
ly hopeful that the differences be-
tween Russia and the western na-
tions will be resolved without a
real danger of coming to blows.

strongly favored by the students.
Seventy-two per cent of those
polled expressed their approval of
a plan for world government with
power to use the police force
against any aggressor nation,
while only 10 per cent were defi-
nitely opposed to the idea.
Students Uninformed
Although three-fifths of the
students declared their support of
a plant which Would put all atomic
energy under the control of an in-
ternational atomic authority,
more than half of them also want-
ed the United States to continue
making atomic bombs. Slightly
less than half said they would fa-
vor the creation of an interna-
tional atomic energy commission
even without the inclusion of Rus-
sia as a member.
Other survey questions showed
the students both uninformed
about its details and wishfully op-
timistic about a defense against
the bomb. Only 28 per cent polled
knew that David Lilienthal is the
Director of the U. S. Atomic En-
ergy Commission. On the other
hand, 57 per cent believe that some
defense can be worked out against
the bomb, although most scien-
tists have said that there is no
foreseeable defense against it.

WASHINGTON, June 26- ()?-
Democrats name their last na-
tion4" convention delegates next
The ,District of Columbia picks
a six-vote delegation in a primary
Monday and Virginia names the
last 26-vote group in state con-
vention Friday.
This will round out the conven-
tion roster of 1,234 votes. With
618 needed for a nomination,
President Truman has 670 pledged
and claimed delegates.
The Democrats hold their con-
vention in Philadelphia July 12.
Mr. Truman's name is the only
one on the ballot in Monday's
voting here, although a space will
be left for write-ins. The ADA,
which favors Gen. Dwight D. Eis-
enhower or Supreme Court Justice
William O. Douglas for President,
has four candidates running for
delegate. Twelve are to be named
with half a vote eaci.
Leaving a White House confer-
ence yesterday, Rep. Battle (Dem.,
Ala.), said:

man certainly will have a better
chance with the South now that
Dewey is nominated than he
would have had if Sen. Vanden-

As on the gridiron, where he
once played against Wolverine
stars Chappuis and Derricotte (in
high school), Zerman claims you
must "fight every minute for every
inch" in the job of promotion.
But in the art of 'plugging'
whether it be a dance band or the
Michiganensian, you must work 24
hours a day according to Michi-
gan's own huckster. And that calf
for an Ohioan. In fact to hear
German talk, every job of impor-
tance calls for an Ohioan.
That may account for all the
jobs Zerman holds. These include
secretary for the Phi Gamma Del-
tas, and assistant sales manager
of the 'Ensian, under Buck Daw-
son. a contemporary promotion
expert, whom Zerman called "the
most terrific promoter in thke
"He taught me that you've got
to have ideas and guts."
Zerman's life-story in his own
words, shows just what he means:
"I was born in Toledo, Ohio.
Raised in Toledo, Ohio. Toledo,
you know, is the glass center of
the world. I went to Defiance Col-
lege for a year-that's in Ohio-
between Toledo and Fort Wayne."
"Then for a while, I had a job,
taking out the Jimmy Dorsey
laundry when he was playing in
Toledo. I also signed his auto-'-
graphs inside the stage door while
the eager admirers (of Dorsey)
waited outside."
Then Zerman was drafted. He
left for foreign duty immediately
and was assigned to Fort Benja-
min Harrison, Indiana. Each suc-
ceeding transfer sent him further
from the Buckeye state.
Next came the University after
the war and the epic is up to date.
And what does a promotions
man desire besides the governor-
ship of Ohio. Just a few things--
a few little ambitions-like reviv-
ing vaudeville, jacking 'Ensian
sales past 6,000 copies and fina-
gling a way to push The Daily's
circulation up to 10,000 copies.
