To Evaluate
A meeting of students interest-
ed in expanding the international
civil service of the UN 'will be
held at 4:15 p.m. today in Aud. A.
The meeting sponsored by the
International Center will feature
addresses by Alan and Judith Gus-
kin, both graduate students. The
Guskins are among the leaders of
the Americans Committed To
World Responsibility.
In addition to the Guskins, who
will outline the objectives and
history of the ACWR, Arthur
Millne of the International Center
will address the assembly. He will
view the movement from the
standpoint of one connected with
international affairs.
Guskin said the meeting had
gained added significance in the
light of Sen. John F. Kennedy's
announced support' of a youth
corps, which he gave in a speech
in California last night. A similar
declaration of policy on the part}
of Vice-President Richard M.
Nixon is now being sought.
Means, of direct action by stu-
dents to implement the proposals
will be covered at the meeting,
Guskin said.
Student Panel
To Study Book
,The, ugly American-True or
False?" will be the topic of a
panel discussion at 7:30, p.m. to-
day in Aud. B.
The discussion is sponsored
Jointly by ISA and SGC as part of
International Week; it will ana-
lyze the picture of American for-,
eign policy presented in Lederer
and Burdick's best selling book,
"The Ugly American."a
Prof. Harold Jacobson of the
political science department willI
moderate the panel of five inter-
national students and Miss Eliza-
beth Reid, an Australian journal-I
ist who Just returned from AfricaI
and the Far East..3

"The crucial issue of this elec-
tion will be whether Senator Ken-
nedy can win over more Eisen-
hower Democrats than he will lose
normally-Democratic, Protestants,"
Prof. Warren E. Miller of the
political science department said
Prof. Miller, speaking at a
luncheon meeting of the student
chapter of the American Institute
of Chemical Engineers, explained
that most voters decide how they
will vote on the basis of party
allegiances acquired long before
the nominations. Recent elections,
since Democrats are the majority
party, have been decided by how
many Democrats deviate to the
Republican candidate.
Seven Categories
The University's Survey Re-
search Center of which Prof. Mil-
ler is program director, has divid-
ed the national population into
seven categories of party affilia-
tion. These are strong, weak, and
leaning to one party or another,
plus the independents.
The Center made its first study
of. the voting population in 1952.
At this time it discovered that 47
per cent of the people identified
themselves with the Democratic
party as opposed to 27 per cent
identifying with the Republicans.
"Because of this, President
Eisenhower's two victories make
him a unique political figure,"
Prof. Miller said. "Had Eisen-
hower been a different type of
political leader than he is, it is
possible that his personal popu-
larity could have brought about
a switch in basic party loyalties
similar to the change President
Roosevelt brought about," Prof.
Miller added.
' In a survey made by the Survey
Research Center in March, 1960,
the only deviation from the 1952
results was a switch to the in-

dependents. Independent support
grew from 5 to 11 per cent and
this was apparently due to the
decline of people leaning towards
the Democrats from 10 to 6 per
cent. Forty-six per cent identified
with the Democrats in the spring
of 1960 as opposed to 26 per cent
with the Republicans.
"This means that if Kennedy
wins it shows he is the condidate
of the majority party while if
Nixon wins it is a more impressive
triumph because of his more di-
verse support," Prof. Miller com-
Nominal Democrats
"If Kennedy wins no more than
85 per cent of the nominal Demo-
crats he will have a slight edge in
a real tiff-hanging election,"
Prof. Miller said. "If the defection
is any larger than this Nixon may
win," Prof. Miller added. "Even
if the defection is as large as 17
per cent, however, the vast major-
ity of votes will still have been
based on allegiances acquired be-
fore the nominations," he said.
President Dwight D. Eisen-
hower was able to win in 1956
despite the majority of Democrats
because he won about 25 per cent
of the Democrats who voted, Prof.
Miller said.
Religious Issue
"Civil rights will not be as im-
portant an issue this year as the
religious question," he said.
"The religious issue, combined
with the racial one, will hurt Ken-
nedy in the South but it remains
to be seen just how much defec-
tion from the Democrats it will
cause," Prof. Miller said.
"The religious issue nationally is
more likely to hurt Kennedy with
Democratic Protestants than it
will help him with Republican
Catholics," be commented.
Drive To Support
Fresh Air Camp
The annual bucket drive to raise
money for the University's Fresh
Air Camp is slated for today and

president of the Junior Interfra-
ternity Council announced yester-
day. Schultz noted that JIFC,
Junior Interquadrangle Council,
Junior Panhellenic and Junior

With the season of party weekends almost upon us, my mail of
late has been flooded with queries from young inmates of women's
colleges wishing to know how one conducts one's self when one
has invited a young gentleman for a weekend, so let us today
take up this burning issue.
Well, my dear girls, the first thing to remember is that your
young gentleman is far from home and frightened. Put him at
his ease. You might, for instance, surprise him by having his
mother sitting in a rocker on the station platform when he gets
off the train.
Next, what kind of corsage should you send your young gentle-
man? Well, my beloved maidens, orchids are always acceptable.
So, indeed, are phlox and delphinium. In fact, most any flora
will serve. Do try, however, to avoid carnivorous plants.
If you find, my esteemed fillies, that your local florist has run
out of stock, do not be dismayed. Make a corsage out of paper.
But pick good, stiff, durable paper-twenty dollar bills, for
Remember at all times, my fond wenches, to show your young
gentleman courtesy and consideration. Open doors for him,
walk on the traffic side of the path, assist him to the punch bowl,
zip his parka, light his Marlboros. (What, you ask, if he doesn't
smoke Marlboros? Ridiculous, my precious nymphs! Of course,
he smokes Marlboros! Don't you? Don't I? Doesn't everybody
who knows a hawk from a handsaw? What other cigarette
gives you such a lot to like? Such easy-drawing filtration? Such
unfiltered taste? Such soft pack or flip-top box? No other, my
sweet minxes, no other. Marlboro stands alone, and any man
worthy of you, my estimable damsels, is bound to be a Marlboro

BELL, BOOK AND CANDLE-John Van Druten's comedy, "Bell,
Book and Candle," opens at 8 p.m. today in the Lydia Mendels-
sohn Theatre. Commemorating Halloween week, this second Civic
Theatre production of the year presents the antics of witches,
warlocks and a familiar character named Pyewacket in a super-
natural farce. The play runs through Saturday night.

If you will follow the simple instructions stated above, my
good lasses, you will find that you have turned your young
gentleman into a fast and fervent admirer. There is nothing
quite like a party weekend to promote romance. I am in mind
of a party weekend some years ago at Miss Pomfritt's Seminary
for well-born females in West Linotype, Ohio. Serafina Sigafoos,
a sophomore at this institution, majoring in napkin folding, sent
an invitation to a young man named Fafnir Valve, a junior at
the Joyce Kilmer School of Forestry, majoring in sap and boles.
Serafina had been ape for Fafnir since high school, but Fafnir
preferred a girl named Gelia Fleshwound, the high school drum
majorette who once threw a baton so high she impaled a south-
bound mallard.
Anyhow, Serafina sent an invitation to Fafnir, and he came,
and she showered him with kindness and cuff links, and then
he went away, and Serafina sat anxiously by the mailbox,
wondering whether she would ever hear from him again. Sure
enough, two weeks later she got a letter: "Dear Serafina, Can
you let me have fifty bucks? Yours, Fafnir."
Whimnering with ecstasv. she ran tn the hnk and withdrew
