Polls open today in the Mock
Primary election sponsored by
the Young Republican Club in
an effort to give students a
realistic idea of the voting
The ballot is similar to the
official ballots that will be
marked tomorrow by Nebras
kans voting in the state pri
maries. Write-ins
Young Republicans are ac
tively urging write-in votes,
according, to Ardis Levine,

choice and not only for the
candidates who -allow their
names to appear on the bal
lot," she said.

student council member tally
the ballots.
When queried about the
Mock Primary held at the
University, Marv Stromer,
executive secretary of the
Republican party in Nebras
ka, stated that a sizable turn
out for the election would ex
hibit an intensive interest in
politics by University stu
When asked about what he
thought would influence the
election in terms of issues,
Stromer replied that it was
too far ahead in the future
to place any certain weight
on any one factor. Things
change in the minds of the
people overnight, he said.
Own Districts
Wishes have been expressed
by persons not in the Uni
versity for the students to re

ID cards.
"Some parents believe that
their son or daughter is not
as yet qualified to cast their
ballot in an election, yet they
do not themselves take time
to vote," stated Del Rasmus-
sen, Mock Primary head.
"This election gives the stu
dent, regardless of aee a
chance to exercise his right
in selecting nis political
heads." .

been successfully tried at
other schools, particularly
during football season," said
A. J. Lewandowski, business
manager of athletics.
"I feel that this University's
first attempt at a similar con
test was also very success
ful," he added.

Ends Chatter
ia the spring at the Uni
versity, one never need be
at a loss for conservation.
"Congratulations," Just
walk up to everyone you
meet, exhuberantly utter
this magic phrase, and you
just about can't go wrong.
The response willbe a
pleased thank-you, and a
grateful smile for having
read about that persons
particular claim to fame.
If they haven't just been
pinned, engaged, tapped,
tackled, elected, selected,
appointed, sworn in, initi
ated, pledged, chosen, hon
ored, recognized or
crowned, maybe they have
just passed an hour exam
and deserve it anyway.

In a poll of the nation's
governors by the organization
concerning the matter of open
and closed meetings, 24 of the
governors stated a policy
lavonng open meetings. The
statements of nine were too
general for any definite qual
ification. Ten other governors set
stringent limits for the press'
use of information. Another
five failed to answer.
Governor Victor Anderson
was listed among the nine
who stated general policies
but did not pin-point their
In 1957 the organization
drew up two model laws, one
to require open meetings, the
other to require open records.
The reason 31 states still do
not have laws that demand
the meetings of government
bodies be open to the press
and public. And 19 states do
not have laws guaranteeing
citizens the right to inspect
the records of their govern
ment. The campaign for the adop

passing of an npen meetings
law in the Michigan Senate

bills into state legislatures
in three other states, with
more action expected, Blue
dorn said.
