Trail -Election



Americans go to the polls today to elect their President.
All political indicators point to a victory for President
Lyndon B. Johnson. Most analysts are now preoccupied with the
question of the extent of the President's expected victory rather
than who the victor will be.
Supporters of Sen. Barry Goldwater point to Harry Truman's
upset victory in 1948 as evidence that victory for their candidaate
is still not impossible. In that year all the polls and most of
the political "experts" conceded the election to Republican can-
didate Thomas Dewey weeks before the election.
Harris, Gallup Favor Johnson
However, this year the polls give President Johnson a lead
of almost double that which Dewey held over Truman. The final
Harris and Gallup Polls both show the President with 64 per cent
of the vote to 36 per cent for Goldwater.
Earlier in the campaign, Goldwater strategists announced
that they intended to win by sweeping the solid South and
adding the key states of Ohio, Illinois, California and Texts. It
is now predicted that the Arizona senator can do no better than
split even in the South, and polls show him far behind in all

of the four key states. In fact, Goldwater seems certain of carry-
ing only two states, Alabama and Mississippi, although he is rated
as having a good chance in several other states. Louisiana, South
Carolina, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Arizona, South Dakota ,and
Wyoming are all seen as very close.
Plethora of Officeholders
In addition to the Presidency, Americans will elect a plethora
of officeholders on the national, state and local levels.
In the Senate, where the Democrats currently have a 66-34
majority, 35 Senate seats are at stake. The House will re-elect all
435 of its' members, and its is predicted the Democrats will
slightly improve upon their present 254-176 advantage. The GOP
is given its best chance of picking up seats in the gubernatorial
races where 18 of the 25 seats at stake are currently held by
Democrats. All told, 34 of the 50 states now have Democratic
The margin of Johnson's expected victory is likely to deter-
mine the outcome of several nationally important senatorial and
gubernatorial races.-
Michigan's Economic Progress
MICHIGAN: Gov. George Romney is facing a stiff challenge

from his Democratic opponent, Congressman-at-large Neil
Staebler of Ann Arbor. Romney has campaigned on the platform
of the economic progress Michigan has achieved under his
administration. Staebler has tried to force Romney into either
declaring his support or opposition to Sen. Goldwater. Romney
has resisted, claiming he "accepts" the decision of the Republican
convention but does not "endorse" it. Democrats are hoping that
a Johnson landslide will carry Staebler in with the President.
Sen. Philip Hart (Dem.) is expected to have little trouble
in defeating his opponent Elly Peterson. Mrs. Peterson has never
held public office before and is almost unknown in the state.
She has been greatly hurt by lack of exposure in Detroit caused
by the newspaper strike:
Murphy vs. Salinger
CALIFORNIA: At stake in California is the Senate seat of
Democratic incumbent Pierre Salinger. Running a hard race
against the former presidential press secretary is Republican
George Murphy, a former movie star.
Murphy is using to good advantage the charge that Salinger
is a carpetbagger. In addition, because of Salinger's strong op-
position to Proposition 14, a state constitutional amendment to

"The tardiness of the houses

Sig Chi Injures Four
In SMPedgeRaid
House Presidents Deny Incident
Occurred Between Two Fraternities
A Sigma Alpha Mu pledge raid on Sigma Chi fraternity Saturday
night resulted in a brawl which sent four SAM pledges to the hospital.
Sources reported that the incident began when the pledges were
sent to the Sigma Chi house and told to get a certain picture from
it as a part of a scavenger hunt.
(Traditionally, the SAM actives call the Sig Chi house to inform
them that the pledges are coming. When the pledges arrive, the Sig
Chis usually put up some resistance, then give the object to the
pledges and let them go.)
This time, the sources said, the pledges met with violence from
the Sig Chis.
Fraternity Presidents Frederick Lambert, '66, of Sigma Chi and:
Robert Pincus, '66, of Sigma Alpha Mu, denied last night that any
incident involving the two houses took place. Pincus said he had been
unaware of any SAM pledges being taken to the hospital. He suggest-,
ed that the injuries had resulted
from a rough football scrimmage I

The SAM pledges were told that,
at worst the Sig Chis would lock

the pledges were told, the Sig Chis
would let them go..

tonight for those who want to follow their candidates without
watching TV all night. The group will monitor all the networks
to provide information on the various races. Its phones are,
665-9687, 665-9852 and 761-2330.
Goldwater defeat is expected to drag Percy down, but very few
percentage points will separate the two gubernatorial candidates.
Kerner is aided by the traditionally effective machine of
Chicago's Mayor Richard Daley, unity in the Democratic Party
and the fact that he has been a fairly good governor.
Dynamism, youth and a successful business career with Bell
& Howell are Percy's main assets. Drawbacks to the Percy can-
didacy are a divided Republican Party and the lack of issues
to use against Kerner.

lower house is being elected at-large. Look for the results next
A Very Close Race
NEW YORK: The outcome of the race between Robert Ken-
nedy (Dem.) and Kenneth Keating (Rep.) is so doubtful that
most analysts refuse to make a prediction, although final polls
have given Kennedy a slight lead.
Kennedy will have to overcome defections from traditional
Democratic groups such as liberal intellectuals, organized labor
(particularly the Teamsters Union) and Jews if he is to win. He
must rely on his personal popularity with the public as a whole
in order to counter these losses.
Keating, a liberal, who has refused to support his party's
presidential candidate, must pick up votes from liberals while
not losing conservative Republicans.
Keating has accused Kennedy of being a "carpetbagger"
who cynically wants to use New York as a stepping-stone to
the presidency. Kennedy, who until he was nominated in Septem-
ber was a Massachusetts resident, has countered by attacking
Keating's record as less liberal than the senator is now admitting.
Young Gains Support
OHIO: The Republicans one "safe" Senate seat is now rated
marginal. Two weeks ago the election of Congressman-at-large
Robert Taft, Jr., was considered certain, both because of his
name and because of the powerful Republican organization of
Ray Bliss. ,Since then incumbent Democratic Senator Stephen
Young, who was swept in on the 1958 Right-to-Work issue, has
gained support as Johnson's potential margin of victory has risen.
Taft's chances are still rated at better than even, but if
Johnson's margin is more than 500,000 votes, he will be in real

Murphy Says Indiat Avoids Militarism


India is a great power but does not choose to act as one because
of its own ideas of the power role, Rhoads Murphy of the geography
department said last night in the Multipurpose Room of the UGLI.
His lecture on the role of India in today's world was sponsored by
the International Students Association.
Murphy said that India claims the status of a great power be-
cause of its size, population, geographical location and economic
potential. However, he pointed out, India has declined to play the
role of a military power.
Murphy said a major reason for this attitude is the unique type
of nationalism of India. He explained that nationalism is essentially
a negative concept because it implies not only the superiority of one
n r'.,ra, an vpr +hn,. hniih ,len the inferiorito nf nothe nntries

This policy is termed non-alignment, Murphy pointed out that
this does not mean India is neutral. According to the Indian way
of thought, neutralism means that one does not care about issues
in question. India does care and has become concerned with world
peace, Murphy said.
India believes that the way to preserve world order is to remain
outside political blocs, and to maintain her policy of non-alignment.
Murphy felt that "India's voice in this role carries more weight than
if it were speaking as a great political and military power that it
could become."
The policy of non-alignment has suffered a few setbacks, Murphy
said, but none of sufficient impact to invalidate the theory. Its biggest
test was the Chinese invasion that surprised the country. However,
the moral commitment to the theory of non-violence prevailed.
