By KEN RYSTROM Managing: Editor The nation sighed with relief Wednesday as the last votes of the 1952 election were counted.

They forgot their studies and classes as they became lost in the swing of thunder-and-blood politics. They at tended and sponsored speeches, they organized rallies, they signed and circulated petitions, they participated in panel discussions and question periods and they argued no end night and day. Campaigning got into high gear something around the first of March last winter a month before the state primary election. Students found particular interest in the presidential battles on both Democratic and Republican tickets and in the I long-term senator's and the governor's races on the GOP side.

The YWCA commission provided the climax for University political campaigning with a mock election a few days before the April primary. The were recorded, partisan feeling ran high. Pictures of candidates were torn down, mutilated and be mustached. Campaign stickers were pasted in nearly- every vacant window and on every other car bumper. Badges of every size up to the 25 cent special flashed from every shirt and sweater. Democratic Vive-Presidential Nominee John Sparkman addressed University students as did Crosby, but, except for them, students saw and heard little from candidates on campus. A dele gation traveled to Omaha to hear Eisenhower; groups assembled at Presby House and other places to see and hear leading candidates on television; students hastily read articles and edi torials to determine what the candidates were saying and what everyone else was saying about them. active part of the campaign was bull sessions or on street corners, Tuesday arrived, a few elderly students went to the polls and then everyone settled back for what was expected to be a long, long night of suspense. But by midnight the trend was obvious. Stu nation were shocked at the sud political decision. They either with new zeal. For some the day was long it was hard to meet their classmates.

The wise student, who skips cokes and coffee during the week or gets someone else to buy them for him can save enough to splurge on Sunday night. He can be reasonably sure of seeing lew people that he knows if he can afford atmosphere and food at the same meal. The Sunday attitude has a definite bearing on student ap petites. It is a reasonable cinch that if you can afford the best steak in town yon won't feel like swapping your jeans for a suit to go and get it, so you'll settle for soup and coffee at the Union. Or you'll just feel like getting away . from people so you'll dash to the Tastee and haul your dinner home with you. If you are a girl you may pool resources with a few of your neighbors and buy something to cook. What could be more fun than making cocoa in a teakettle and drinking it out of the spout? Or heating soup in a skillet and drinldng lt out of a pie plate? It gives you sucn a competent, housewifely feeling. Some students may nse the opportunity of buying a meal away from the house to try dif ferent foods which are not in cluded on the house menu. In cluded under this heading are pizzia, ravioli, French fried shrimp and thick T-bones. One small group is composed of dieters, who skip Sunday night supper because it's too much work to go after it. Chi Convention Two NU Coeds Won the Chapter Reporter Award, which is given to the group contributing the "most news, and the best news" to the Fraternity's national magazine over a period of two years. The program for the two-day convention included, an address by Dale Rodgers, vice president of The American Federation of Advertising, panel discussions con cerning advertising, radio and television; activity reports from 17 university chapter representa tives and a discussion by Bea Adams, "Advertising Woman of The Year" for 1950. A war dance performed by the Sequoi Indian Club, a tour of the University of Oklahoma School of '. Journalism and a visit to the home of Oklahoma's governor were other highlights of the convention.

His insistence upon cutting gov ernmental functions and federal aid finally won him the spot in the Capitol. Courtesy Lincoln Journal SPARKMAN,.. Sen.
