The YWCA commission provided the climax
for University political campaigning with a mock
election a few days before the April primary. The

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.

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.
