balance between local, national

Miss Colbert told a group of
prospective workers in a mass
meeting held recently.
MENTAL HEALTH will be a
part of the AUF drive for the
first time and will receive 25
per cent of the funds collected.
The organization was considered
lest year and the AUF board
felt that the change would be
wise. Mental Health was rated

conducted earlier this semester.

Democrats Refuse Support
WASHINGTON National Chairman Stephen A. Mitchell de
tiied the Democratic Party's support to James Roosevelt and Rep.
Robert L. Condon. The reasons given by Mitchell for withholding
support for these candidates is that Roosevelt has been charged
with adultery by his wife in a separate maintenance suit. Condon,
a first term member, is seeking re-election in the face of charges
Which he has denied that he is a security risk.
Condon said that he resented the contents of Mitchell's letter
and said that he believed Mitchell cannot speak for thousands of
Democratic voters who evaluate political candidates upon their
fitness and basic Democratic philosophy.
Mitchell said he believes most Democrats feel candidates serve
their parties best by standing aside from election contests until
personal problems are disposed of in the proper place.
NEW YORK World famous Arturo Toscanni, conductor ji
the NBC symphony for the past several ye'ars, has retired. The
announcement was made Sunday night by Brig. Gen. David Sar
noff, chairman of the board of RCA and NBC, following Sunday
night's concert which marked the end of the winter season of
the NBC symphony. Toscanni is 87 years old.
A letter from Toscanni said that "now the sad time has
come when I must reluctantly lay aside my baton and say goodbye
to my orchestra."
Toscanni, the son of a tailor from Parma, Italy, had a dis
tinguished career as an opera and symphony conductor when he
came to America in 1908 to conduct the Metropolitan Opera. From
1926 to 193& he directed the New York Philharmonic-Symphony
