Voice of r Great Midwestern VntomtMj LINCOLN, NEBRASKA YM-YW STUDENT POLL Thursday, October 16, T95T 261 Quizzed On Political Belie Nearly 10 percent of Univer sity students do not know both names of the vice presidential candidates. Or at least such was indicated by a poll of 261 students con ducted this week by YMCA and YCWA. The poll showed that 20 of the students Interviewed did not know the names of the major candidates for the vice presi dency. All 261, however, cor rectly idnetified the presidential nominees. Of those interviewed, 166 in dicated that Gen. Dwight Eisen hower was their choice for President of the United States. Stevenson supporters numbered 92, with three students uncer tain. Approximately 300 question naires were circulated by the 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 shops. 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 to obtain a true cross-section of students. Nearly one-third of the stu dents polled by the YW-YM 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. Nineteen, however, said they believed the present governor, Val Peterson, was a candidate for re-election. Four of those Interviewed named Lincoln Mayor Victor E. Anderson as the. Democratic gubernatorial nomi nee. Anderson rain against Cros In the primary election last April. 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 burn (D-Texas).1 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. Four Hundred Coeds View Activity Mart Organizational Booths Total 17 solicitations for each district. One district has not been soli cited due to the illness of the team captain. Miss Coryell an nounced that the team captain has sufficiently recovered to start the canvass of her district.

Approximately 400 girls went through the AWS Activities Mart Wednesday to get acquainted with University activities. Activity choices were offered in almost every field of interest through the 17 organizations who had individual booths at the mart According to Phyllis Kort, secretary of A. W.

For three blocks he chased the engine shouting, "Stop! Stop!" Finally out of breath, he dropped to the pavement and shook his list. "All right for you you can keep your no good peanuts." o One ot the presidential candi dates was being interviewed by a reporter during his campaign. "Do you wish to say anything about the Taft-Hartley Act?" the reporter asked. "No." "About the Korean situa tion?" "No." "About Tidelands Oil?" "No." , The reporter started to leave. "By the way," said the candi date unexpectedly, "don't quote me." White Lists Five Points For Peace YW 'Meet dears Democratic leader Foreign affairs is the big issue in the currenf political campaign, Mrs. John Browning White local Democratic leader said, Wednes day in a YWCA political meeting. Five points for ending war threats and securing world peace were outlined by Mrs. White. 1. Working with friendly nations to halt Communist aggression. 2. Conference table agreements to stoD the Korean contact ana curb rearmament and war mon serine. 3. Build up American aeienses in a Doint that mutual disarma ment of the United States and her enemies would be the only sure way to keep irom Deing rumeu nationally. Then bargain at a peace table to end rearmament. 4. Extend assistance programs such as the Marshall Plan, Point Four and World Health programs. 5. Continue to progress in America socially and economic ally. The United Nations had no re course, she said, but to enter into a police action when North Korea attacked South Korea. She pointed out that the United States, being a member of the UN could only do as did when the Korean situa tion arose. External Communism, Mrs. White said, is a greater danger than internal Communism. But she agreed with a YW member who said that Russian Communism is different from the Communistic teachings of Karl Marx which is the concept held by .nany Americans;. for which they signed up. Freshmen comments were var ied as to the value of the mart. One coed remarked that it was a fine way for the freshmen to be come acquainted with the organ' izations, and to find out which one best suited their individual inter ests. Another said she felt too many activities were being thrown at her at once, and it was difficult to decide for which ones she would like to work. Booths, decorated to illustrate the various functions and duties of each organization, gave the 400 freshmen an idea of what would be expected of them in the activity. Representatives gave additional information to those interested. There was a steady attendance throughout the afternoon, but ac cording to Jean Speidel, NUCWA representative, th largest crowd was during the last half hour when all freshmen were out of classes. The 17 organizations repre sented werei BABW, All Uni versity Fund, Associated Women Students, YWCA, NUCWA, Wesley .Foundation, .Women's Athletic Association, Tassels, Student Union, American Red Cross.

Army Preparing 'Atomic Cannon' Use ABERDEEN, MD. The Army is getting ready to fire an actual Governor Discusses 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.
