This year marks the second an
niversary of the mock election on
the University campus. The elec
tion procedure is conducted as
nearly as possible like those of
the national elections. The mock
election, a YW spokesman said,
gives students who are too young
to vote in the national eelction a
chance to learn how to exercise
the rights that in a few years
will be their duty as citizens of
the United States.
It also serves as an incentive
for students to follow campaign
issues, she said.
Approximately 1100 voted
last spring in the mock primary
election. MiBS O'Dell expects a
much larger vote Friday.

McCarthy Assails Adlai
CHICAGO Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy charged that Gov. Adlai
Stevenson has given "aid to the Communist cause." Speaking on a
nation-wide radio arid television hookup, the Wisconsin senator
leveled four charges against the Democratic nominee:
1. That Stevenson is surrounded by some left-wing advisers.
2. That the Democratic nominee "could continue the suicidal
Kremlin-dictated policies of this nation."
3. That Stevenson, assigned the task of formulating post war
United States policy in Italy, prescribed a plvn for ''foisting Com
munism" on the Italians.
4. That Stevenson is "part and parcel" of the "Acheson-Hiss-Latimore
Former leadership of the Americans for Democratic Action was
cited by McCarthy as evidence of leftish attitude by Stevenson's ad
visers, Wilson Wyatt and Arthur Schlesinger Jr. Also mentioned
was James Wechsler whom McCarthy said was one of Stevenson's
"ghost writers." "Wechsler and his wife both admit having been
members in the Young Communist League," McCarthy said.
The senator said that Stevenson as special assistant to Secretary
of the Navy Knox intervened against the firing of Navy Department
employees with Communist records.
Candidates Comment On McCarthy
WASHINGTON A variety of comments resulted in political
circles after McCarthy's "expose" of Stevenson. Sen. John Spark
man, Democratic vice-presidential nominee, called the speech a "pa
thetic smear" and "last ditch defense of the Republican Old Guard.
The Soviet masters in the Kremlin must be laughing now," he said..
Sen. Frank Carlson, prominent Eisenhower supporter, said the
general does not owe McCarthy "anything" for the speech and "re
mains a no deal man."
Stevenson accused Eisenhower of "speaking with the voice of
Taft, sometimes the voice of Gov. James Byrnes, sometimes the
voice of Sen. iiicnara jyi. iMixon, ana lomgni, i am 101a, oy uic
trnire cf Senator McCarthy.
Arthur Schleslinger Jr. said McCarthy "tore a sentence out of
context for the purpose of insinuating that I am pro-Communist."
ThP senator ouoted a Schlesinger article saying Communists 6hould
be allowed to teach in universities. He dropped the last words of
the sentence "so long as they do not disqualify themselves by m-
tellecual distortions in the classrooms."
Eisenhower's Views Unchanged
NEW YORK "I have changed in no way" since the presiden
tial ramnaien began. Gen. Dwight Eisenhower said. He said his
views and convictions on national issues are the same as they were
four years ago.
He answered charges uy bievenson saying me wemocrauc can
didate had a mentality "completely untutored" for the "tough busi
ness" of dealing with Russia. "If a journey to Korea and a close
study of military and political problems there can save the lite ol
a single American soldier and bring peace of mind to a single
American family, I must make that "journey," he said.
'Ike Political Chamelon'
NEW YORK Adlai Stevenson denounced Eisenhower saying he
was a political chameleon. "I am not a Vanderberg internationalist
in Michigan and a Chicago Tribune Isolationist in Chicago," Steven
son said. "I talk the same way about tideianas on in uexas uiao
in Michigan and talk the same way i'bout civil right in Richmond as
I will talk here (Harlem) tonight."
