Those Smoke-Filled Rooms
with the announcement that publicity for
the class elections will be permitted! this year,
comes a flurry of interest in campus politics.
Twenty-four students have filed for positions on
the Junior and senior class executive committees
Several different groups and coalitions are
putting forth statements as to why their candidates
should be elected. The smoke-filled rooms are
producing support for this candidate, with no sup
port for some other candidate. Parties, long dead
on the campus, seem to be raising their controver
sial heads again.
The third factor, obviously, is the women's
vote. There are a number of female candidates
for five of the offices. The women's vote will prob
ably be a big factor in these three races, if not
in the other races. Whether the women will band
toeether and suDDort one woman for each office
it iooks UKe a good fight may be in prospect, remains to be seen.
The Faction, which has run almost unchallenged
for several years, faces a good battle to maintain
In an open letter to the student body today,
the Engineers announced their slate for class
officers. The list includes an interesting phe
nomena: seven nngineers and one woman. They
promise to put up battle royal for the offices.
The Faction has a nearly complete slate which
can be ascertained by a simple process of sub
traction. (Male candidates minus engineers equals
Faction.) They will have to get out the vote in
order to maintain their previous position.
A fourth and possibly decisive factor may be
the Independent vote, which will, in all probability
fall in behind the Engineers candidates. The num
ber of voters in this category will determine how
important a factor it will be.
Right now, it looks as if each of the three
forces is likely to gain at least one class office.
Time alone can tell who is going to ret the rest
of the votes and thus the election. It looks as
if three parties may be squaring off for a real
battle. It may be the rebirth of interest in
campus politics. These smoke-filled rooms are

F. L. Marcuse, writing in the weekly magazine,
School and Society reports the following:
"An opening for an instructor existed (in
psychology) and applications and credentials were
received from a number of candidates. One letter
of recommendation from the chairman of a de
partment in a prominent university, read as
" "Mr. Blank is also an excellent candidate
for the position. He is an outstandingly effective
teacher, organising- his lectures extremely well
... He is, indeed, a first-rate man. His handi
cap is that he is Jewish, which isn't his fault,
bat he Is a generally polite and pleasant person
and has few if any of the characteristics ascribed
to his race.
"Such an incident," says Marcuse, "is not
unique." The person who wrote the letter, defend
ing himself, said later, "Be damned if you do and
be damned if you don't ... I have been told in
the past month bj two department chairmen that
they did not want me to recommend a Jew to
them orally, of course."
He concludes that "psychologists and social
scientists more than others may be in a position
to realize that thought they personally may be

This, I think, is a very interesting commen
tary on American life. America is supposedly the
melting pot of nations, but there is still a lot of
feeling against the so-called "inferior" citizens.
Ed me tors have shown conclusively that
there is no real difference between the so-called
races, white and black, aryaa and non-aryan.
There are no characteristics which enable the
average- person to say conclusively This is a
Jew and this is net a Jew" or This is a Negro
and this is not a Negro." It Just isn't so.

these other groups as inferior.
Ami free of prejudice? No. I feel that I should
and it is only natural that I should hestiate to
take a step which has not come to be generally
accepted by society.
I do not think, however, that the great ideal
of the so-called inferior races is complete frater
nization. They desire merely the right to do and
act as do the great body of American citizens.
I have talked and argued with people who
keep talking about "putting those people in their
place." I am not sure what is the place of Amer
ica's non-white, non-Christian people. As far as
I am concerned, their place is whatever they
make it, the same as America's other citizens.
People who otherwise never open the Bible
will quote it at length to prove that the Negro
is a second-rate citizen of the world.
Some biased individuals will point to indi
viduals representing a minority race, and point out
their shortcomings. They could just as well pick
out individuals from the majority race and cite
them as examples of behavior. Each individual
should be taken for his own worth, not for what
ever race or nationality group he may happen to

To the editor:
This fall for the first time, the
Engineering college student body
is presenting a full slate of candi
dates for the coming election of
Junior and Senior class officers.
In the spring of 1950 each of
the six professional engineering
societies, whose collective mem
berships contain 85 per cent of
the Engineering College student
body, selected a slate from its de
partment and submitted the
names to the Engineering Execu
tive Board. Each man was inter
viewed by the board and in turn
one to fill each position of the
Engineering candidate slate was
elected by that group.
me persons were selected on
the basis of interest, ability, time
and new ideas. As the campaign
proceeds, they will make evident
the new ideas they have.
These senior class candidates
are: Jack Lliteras, president; John
Adams, vice president: Dick
Phelps, secretary; Bob Haight,
' The - junior class candidates
are: Phil Ostwald, president; Joan
Hanson, vice president: John
Marks, secretary; John Savage,
They were selected without re
gard to their affiliation; some
are independents and some are
In view of the efforts expended
and the democratic procedure
employed, we feel that our method
of selecting these candidates will
be of interest and should be
called to the attention of the
student body in general.

I recognise that marriage betwen people of
different races and religions does present a prob
lem. It does require a certain amount of adjust
ment by both parties, bnt It haa been known
to result in a happy marriage. This, however, is
more ideal than a reality. Practically, marriage
between different troops is often a failure be
cause of outside social pressures.
Very few people however accept inter-marriage.
The thing which needs most attention right
now is the people who attribute certain character
istics to an individual simply because he belongs
to a certain racial group. Every person is an
individual and should be judged as such.

take, to justify ourselves, but it is not our duty
to be impatient "What is that to eternity?' as St 3
Aloysius used to say.
Then we get Impatient with our own short
eeminars and by se doing add another shortcom
ing to the previous pile. Sometimes God allows
as to have weaknesses Id order to keep us
from getting swell headed. St. Francis of Sales
used to call those weaknesses dear imperfections
because they kept him hnnihle. We must hear
wish ow-selves, beeaase after all we are not per-
feet and it will take until we get beyond the
grave before we are. God does not want ear
man-made perfection, hot He does want our
patient waiting upon His Holy WUL
Thus it can be sen that there are endless
ways of submitting to the will of God, including
others' sin and our own imperfections. If for one
single day we kept up this humble abandonment
to the will of God in all the up and downs of the
day, from weather and other people and from
ourselves, we would be far on the way to being
as God wanted us like Has oeiovea son.
