Thomas, Landers and Beck Soliciting
Votes In First Year Class With
No Elements of Interest
Yet In Campaign.
With the sophomore election thiB
morning and the freshman meeting
Thursday there is still a remarkable
lack of interest in the respective re
sults of the second semester elections.
Although the sophomore organization
has had a contest on between two
aspirants for presidential honors over
since the opening of the semester, tho
light is proving devoid of intorest to
a great majority of the class. The
freshmen candidates have not been
in the field for so long a timo, but
their failure to stlp up enthusiasm
has been equally striking.
H. W. Coulter was the first second
year man to announce his candidacy
. for the sophomore presidency. Ho
entered tho running with tho open
ing of the semester. Within" a few
days Leslie Hyde of Lincoln an
nounced that ho would be a willing
recipient of the class headship. Carl
J. Lord of Randolph announced his
deBire for the office nt about tho same
time and it seemed that a contest
might develop of interesting propor
tions. The three men. concerned bo
gan soliciting votes actively and the
talk of a fourth dark horse added In
terest to the affair.
Interest Died Out.
c After being in tho race several
days, Lord decided to withdraw and
this left the contest to Hyde and
Coulter. Since that time the affair
has been lacking in interest and tho
prospect Is that the attendance at to
day's meeting will be small On ac
count of tho genoral apathy existing
it is absolutely impossible to predict
the result. Either candidate may
win In a walk or the result may be
close. Signs to point tho way are
entirely lacking.
Coulter Is a graduate of Canon City,
Colo., high school. Ho hureglstored in
tho college of literaturo, science and
arts. Coulter is a member of Phi
Gamma Delta fraternity. Hyde is a
Lincoln high school man, and he Is
? also enrolled in the academic college.
With Coulter and Hyde as tho con
testants there are practically no is
sues, .saye personal popularity. Al
though Hyde Is not a fraternity man,
'lie has friends among the Greek let
ter organizations and does not poso
as an opponent of tho f rats. Slnco
bqtfr.mei are academics there is no
, feeling between colleges. With theso
two factors, which are usually the
ones most prolific of election plat
forms, otil of consideration, there Is
not much left upon which a contest
of principlescan bj waged.'
First-year Men. ,
Thomas had th'o best of it in tho
freshman, class so far as securing tho
start wob. concerned. He announced
his candidacy several days ahead of
Sanders, who was second. out. Neither
came out until President Kerspackor
had published notice of his Intention
not to call a class meeting until some.
