THURSDAY, OCTOBER 26, 1916.
The assertion is often made that col-
lege communities do not take the pro-
per interest in vital problems of the
outside world. The college professor
and the college student are sometimes
referred to as impractical idealists.
We refuse to believe this. The straw
vote to be held on the campus today
will indicate conclusively how much
interest the 7,600 citizens represented
in Michigan's faculty and student bod-
ies, have in the issues of the day.
They are asked to express their choice
for the presidency, and upon the Mich-
igan state prohibition question.
If a large, representative vote is
polled, it will prove that our univer-
sity community is live, wide-awake,
and interested in the national issues
of the day.
Nine ballot boxes located in Univer-
sity hall, the law building, the Library,
the chemistry building, the medic
building, the hospitals, the dental
building, and the engineering building
will give every faculty member and
student ample opportunity to vote.
The hours of voting have been made
long enough so that they will not con-
flict with classes or laboratory per-

SAYS SPEECH UNFAIR
WILSON CLUB MEETING UNJUST
TO REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE
Editor, The Michigan Daily:
The writer has attended both the
Republican smoker of a week ago, and
the Democratic smoker held Tuesday
evening. It was a pleasure to me to
get the fair and impartial account of;
the Hon. Wm. Draper Lewis on the
various problems that faced the Wilsonj
administration. The contrary, how-
ever, is the case with the meeting held
under the auspices of the Wilson club
and other meaningless phrases. He is
direct and fearless in his views on all
The next petty question asked was
in substance, "Why did Hughes run?
Hasn't he said he wouldn't run for pol-
itical office?" Well, now, why isWil-
son a candidate? Doesn't his platform
of 1912, bind him to a single term?
1 Another argument against Hughes,
was that as justice of the supreme
court, he never uttered a word against
the President's attitude on Mexico and
on other questions. Certainly, he did-
n't utter a word! He knew his place.
He respected his office; he upheld the
dignity of his office.
I have taken a close account of the
speech from beginning to end, and be-
lieve that I am able to outline quite
accurately the points the speaker has
introduced--I do not know his name.
He states at the start that this is a
campaign of personalities not issues.
Then he analized the characters of
Wilson and Hughes in a very biased
fashion. During the course of his re-
marks the speaker went as far as to
refer to Hughes as crazy and wild. j
In other words, he tells us before-
hand that he is to discuss personal-
ities. Why? The only reason I can
find, is that he cannot defend the pres-
ident in his attitude, and his talk is an
admission of my contention.
In referring to Hughes' record' as
governor, he does not say a word;
In discussing our so-called "pros-
perity", he stated, rather uniquely,
that Delaware is the only state where
munition factories are situated. Hence,
the prosperity in the west, particular-
ly North and South Dakota, is not due
to the war, because the west does not
do any war business. How about raw
materials, Mr. Speaker? Do they all
come from Delaware? Where does the
metal come from that is necessary for
the manufacture of ammunition?
Where do the wool and hides, wheat
and corn, and countless other mater-
ials come from? How superficial such
against his administration of New As a preface to his talk on Mexico,
York state-only, that his regime is he excuses the President because it is
too far back to command attention.
We are then told that many of New
York's newspapers have called the Re-
publican nominee, Charles "Evasion"
Hughes. New York by the way, has
only two Democratic dailies - the
World and the Times. Was Hughes'
stand on woman suffrage an evasion?
Is his stand on the Adamson bill an
evasion? Is his stand on the tariff or
any question an evasion? Hughes
doesn't speak of a "psychological de-
pression"; nor does he discuss the
"New Freedom", "Humanitarianism",
a "new" question. Then we are told
of the horrors of war. He also assures
us that all losses to American proper-
ty in Mexico will be rehabilitated.
Then came the flagrant statement that
Wilson was not going to plunge this
country into war, because of a few
Americans have seen fit to invest in
Mexico. In other words, an American
has no right to invest in a foreign
country, for we are not going to pro-
The last point discussed was the
