Or at least such was indicated
by a poll of 261 students con

The poll showed that 20 of

know the names of the major
candidates for the vice presi
dency. All 261, however, cor
rectly idnetified the presidential

Battle for Ballots Commission of
the YWCA between 1 and 3 p.
m. Monday. Students were in
terviewed by poll-takers in the
Union, Love Library, on Ag cam
pus and in off-campus coffee
In addition to showing the
trend of student thinking on
politics, the poll was designed
to Indicate how well students
are Informed on political figures
and Issues.
According to Neala O'Dell,
chairman of the sponsoring com
mission, every effort was made

Nearly one-third of the stu

failed to name correctly both
candidates for governor of the
state of Nebraska. One hundred
seventy-nine were able to name
Robert B. Crosby, Republican
nominee, and Walter R. Raecke,
Democratic nominee.

Th questionnaires listed four
United States Senators and one
Representative, asking students
to identify the party affiliation
of each. The Congressmen were
Sens. John Cabot Lodge Jr.,
(R-Mass.), HarryjByrd (D-Va.),
WifWlliam 7. Jenner, (R-nd.), "an
Joseph R. McCarthy, (R-Wis.),
and Representative Sam Ray

One hundred fifty-four stu
dents failed to identify the party
of Senator Jennes '01 correctly
labeling him a Republican.
Sixty-eight missed the party of
Senator McCarthy 193 were
right in calling him a Republi
can. Fifty-five were wrong and
206 were right in indentifying
Democratic Senator Byrd. Forty
were wrong and 221 were right
in naming Senator Lodge a Re
publican. Congressman Rayburn led the
identification quia with only 36
students failing to call him a
Democrat. Two hundred twenty
five were accurate.
In addition to asking students
who their presidential choice
was, the questionnaire also
asked, "If you were to register
at this time, would you register
Democratic or Republican?" The
same number as supported Eis
senhower, 166, declared they
would register as Republicans.
Ninety-two, the same number as
favored Stevenson, said they
would sign as Democrats. Three
students were uncertain.
The final question In the poll
was, "How many issues of the
campaign can you name?" The
average number of Issues (all
suggestions being accepted) was
three from each person. Sixty
five students however, failed to
name a single one.
Corruption, foreign policy and
Communism in government
were most frequently men
tioned. The poll was conducted in
conjunction with the Y's mock
election scheduled for Oct. 31.
Results of voting for presiden
tial candidates will be com
pared with the preferences indi
cated in the poll.

NU Budget
Peterson Says Question
Lies With Taxpayers
Gov. Val Peterson discussed the
requested budget for the Univer
sity in a press interview held
Monday evening.
Governor Peterson admitted
that he had not seen the official
budget that was submitted by the
University, but was basing his
comments on newspaper articles
that carried the amount for the
coming biennium. .
When asked about the 31 per
cent over-all increase in the
budget he said, "It has been my
hope that all state institutions in
the coming biennium would be
able to operate on the same ap
propriation that they did in the
past biennium."
On the question of salaries paid
University officials, the Governor
declared that "These sums are out
of line with the salaries paid in
the Statehouse." He went on to
add that the solution was not to
cut University salaries, but to in
crease those of state officials.
Governor Peterson said that the
salaries of state officials are not
always in keeping with those of
University officials when the com
parative importance and respon
sibility of the respective positions
are considered.
He said that he could not
pass official judgment on the
proposed budget until he had
studied it carefully. "There is
still the big question I have
raised every two years, how
much can the taxpayers afford
to pay, granting the worthwhile
ness and desirability of the ac
tiivties involved."
He went on to add that the Uni
versity is only one of the four
big spending agencies and that the
other three would have equally
Igood reasons for equal increases.
