IFC and the Elections:
Friendly Persuasion

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond of two articles analyzing the
results of Tuesday's election. Yes-
terday's article analyzed the Michi-
gan results. Today's discusses the
rest of the nation.)
N AN OFF-YEAR election which
must go down as one of the
most interesting in history, Amer-
ican voters sized up gubernator-
ial and congressional candidates in
a manner that will keep the pun-
dits puzzled and guessing for years
to come.
The only trend easily discernible
is one of contradiction. The elec-
torate crossed party lines with
recklessrabandon,rupsetting re-
nowned personalities of American
politics and bringing unfamiliar
faces to the fore.

"S HEAMERICAN Fraternity system . is
a laboratory in which the democratic prin-
ciples of this nation are brought home to every
young person in such a manner that he cannot
help but absorb them, if he but tries."
These, the high ideals of the affiliate sys-
tem, were set forth by EditorJohn Myerholz in
last year's rushing booklet, "Fraternities at
This year, Interfraternity Council President
John Meyerholz, in participating in the Stu-
dent Government Council campaign, is impart-
ing new significance to these nble concepts.
N A MEMO to IFC members who will be
campaigning in behalf of IFC-endorsed can-
didates, Meyerholz demonstrates not only a
strikingly original interpretation of the demo-
cratic ethic, but also a remarkable faith in
his constituents within the affiliate system:
This document, chock-full of helpful hints for
IFC's students of grass-roots democracy, begins
by listing the five candidates whom IFC, after
"deliberating until early morning," decided to
back for SGC: Steve Stockmeyer, Tom Brown,
Russ Epker, Frank Strother and Chuck Barnell.
That's funny: they're all fraternity men!
Editor Meyerholz pointed out last year,
fraternity men are the leaders on campus.
And, after ,all, it doesn't really make too
" much difference if one candidate, for example,
staunchly supports a speaker bylaw he's never
read; thinks that discrimination in the af-
filiate system has been eliminated, and should
be eliminated immediately, but not too fast;
insists that The Daily should cover SGC more
thoroughly, but doesn't know how it is covered
now; and hadn't been to an SGC meeting in
six months, until the campaign started-Does
And it isn't really too crucial that at least
three of the candidates are totally unable to
articulate any consistent philosophy of student
government; and that four (if not all five)
t of them have expressed no really new ideas for
g" SOC- is it?-
NOW, ON THE SURFACE, it may seem that
some of these gentlemen fall slightly short
of the criteria by which, Meyerholz explains,
they were selected for IFC endorsement: know-
ledge and understanding of SGC structure and
issues, and "potential for being an active and
responsible member of SGC."
However, this apparent contradiction is eas-
ily resolved further on in the memo, as Meyer-
hols explains what this really means. Under
the title, "Importance of Voting," he explains:
"Since they (SGC) have control over us, we
had better get our people on it."
Elaborating further, he instructs IFC cam-
paigners, "Also drop the fact that we wanted
candidates who are best for Greeks."
President Meyerholz's concern for the campus
as a whole is indeed in keeping with "the
democratic principles of this nation," so elo-
quently expounded by Editor Meyerholz.
11OWEVER, Politician Meyerholz is no fool.
He perceives that, despite such remarkable
candidates and such a unique and provocative
philosophy, certain (shall we say) techniques
may be necessary in order to convince those
affiliate men and women who might be slow
in appreciating the virtue of the IFC lineup
(possible due to some chance oversight within
their house's leadership training program).
Buyers of Ai

First, the IFC reps, in talking before affiliate
groups, are advised to "go over each of the
five candidates in alphabetical order." Good
idea: if, as Mr. Meyerholz seems to imply,
fraternity men are rather slow-witted, they's
probably forget and mess it all up by voting
for the wrong candidates otherwise.
Next, the IFC speakers are to "tell the house
that we will give their presidents a list of the
five candidates next Monday as a reminder for
each of them."
Great, great! He'll get through to 'em yet!
MEYERHOLZ'S FINAL admonition is parti-
cularly inspiring:
"Above all, don't oversell the idea that we are
telling them to vote for our candidates. We are
merely suggesting to them the best candidates
from the Greek's standpoint. If they have any
questions that you are not able to answer, tell
them that they could obtain a more accurate
answer if they would contact one of the senior
officers of IFC.
"In this way you are not admitting that
you do not know the answer; you are just look-
ing out for their interest by providing them
with a more perfect answer."
What a stirring tribute to the men of the
fraternity system!
AT FIRST, one might think that the com-
ments in this column could apply with
equal force to, say, Voice Political Party. Meyer-
holz might well commend Voice for following
his example and selecting candidates on the
basis of their political beliefs.
However, Voice, still clinging to such archaic
concepts as forthrightness and integrity, makes
the silly mistake of admitting that it is a
political party and committed to a certain
political view-even going so far as to publish
a platform, and plaster it all over where every-
body can see it!
On the other hand, Meyerholz's superior
prudence is evident, as he keeps IFC above
the messy problems that arise when one admits
to such a political commitment.
Or, one might argue, The Michigan Daily
displays political finesse equal to IFC's-for it,
like IFC, makes recommendations to the voters,
while not admitting to being a political party,
either. However, for some reason, The Daily's
editors just can't seem to get over the goofy
idea that competence to serve on SGC is a
more important criterion than the presence
or absence of a fraternity pin.
As a result, they go around indiscriminately
supporting candidates, no matter where they
Though predominantly liberal in their own
beliefs, the editors have frequently found them-
selves in the inane position of recommending a
conservative-just because he's qualified. Some-
how, these amateur journalists just fail to
comprehend the profound difference between a
Fraternity Man and an ordinary man-a dis-
tinction which Meyerholz appreciates in all its
far-reaching significance.
THE STUDENTS, of the fraternity-sorority
systemn, and indeed of the whole University,
should keep in mind IFC's creative corollaries
to "the democratic principles of this nation" as
they go to the polls next Wednesday.
They should remember that, were it not for
contributions such as these, student government
on this campus could never have become what
it is today: a stagnant mess.

... narrow margin

Richard M. Nixon lost a desper-
ate bid to regain a power position
in the Republican party. Long-
time Republican Senators Homer
Capehart (Ind) and Alexander
Wiley (Wis) were unseated. Min-
nesota Congressman.Walter Judd
was turned out of office. Demo-
crats captured the statehouse in
Vermont and the statehouse and a
Senate seat in New Hampshire for
the first time in memory.
cratic Governors John Swainson
(Mich), Michael DiSalle (Ohio),
and Steve McNichols (Colo) lost
their bids for re-election, and the
Republicans took the Oklahoma
governorship, an office they have
never held before.
The GOP took large strides to-
kard making the South a two-
party region - netting five new
House seats.
Republican g o v e r n o r s-elect
George Romney in Michigan and
William Scranton in Pennsylvania
have brought new life to a GOP
currently devoid of national per-
IF ANY overall winner can be
declared, it will have to be the
Democratic party. Historically, the
party in power has lost an average
of five Senate seats and 39 House
seats in off-year elections. The
Democrats lost only four House
seats. More significant, the Re-
publican-Southern Democrat coa-
lition remained stagnant while
Kennedy Democrats increased
their strength.
The 88th Congress will have even
more Democrats than the 87th.
The old balance was 64-36. The
Democrats netted four seats Tues-
day to increase their margin to
Included in the new lineup will
be such important freshman Dem-
ocratic liberals as Abraham Ribi-
coff of Connecticut and Gaylord
Nelson of Wisconsin.
The governorships give both par-
ties cause for celebration and dis-
appointment, but, on the whole,
this was one Republican strong-
point. The pre-election lineup of
34 Democrats to 16 Republicans
will probably remain unchanged.
But the Republicans captured or
maintained control of several pow-
erhouse states: New York, Ohio,
Pennsylvania and Michigan.,
Besides picking up House seats
and the Oklahoma governorship in
the South, the Republicans made
an unbelievably strong bid for Lis-
ter Hill's (D-Ala) Senate seat and
a creditable showing in the Texas
governor's race.

the election are these:
1) The Republican party failed
in its attempt to reverse its minor-
ity position in American politics.
Republican National Chairman
William Miller had predicted gains
in the House of Representatives
and governorships which never
2) Neither Cuba nor medical
care for the aged under social se-
curity, nor any other foreign or
domestic issue dominated national
voting patterns in anything like
trend proportions.
3) The voters had a field day
splitting tickets. Party loyalties
were apparently at low ebb. In
Ohio, for instance, Democratic
Governor Michael DiSalle lost by
400,000 votes; Democratic Sena-
tor Frank Lausche won by the
same margin.

6) While statistical changes were
slight, both parties gained poten-
tially important footholds in cer-
tain states where they had been
relatively weak.
7) In certain notable cases leg-
islative gerrymandering did not
have the expected effect.
8) Former President Dwight D.
Eisenhower, who campaigned vig-
orously across the country, was
again unable to turn his popularity
into Republican votes.,
9) Conservative candidates ran
poorly except for scattered South-
ern victories and Peter Dominick's
Senate victory in Colorado. Four
avowed Birch candidates ran; all
Following is a breakdown of sig-
nificant races:
A victory margin of over 500,000
votes was not enough to satisfy re-
elected New York Republican Gov.
Nelson A. Rockefeller. Rockefeller
has all but admitted he will seek
the Republican presidential nom-
ination in 1964 and hoped for a
plurality of 800,090-1,000,000 to
prove his vote-getting power.
Republican Senator Jacob K.
Javits in winning re-election top-
ped the governor's totals, Javits
even carried normally Democratic
New York City.
New York's Republican legisla-
ture drastically altered the state's
congressional districts for the ex-
press purpose of giving the GOP a
25-16 edge. Demoratic voters did
not go along, however, so that the
actual New York delegation split
in the 88th Congress will be 21
Republicans, 20 Democrats. A
Democrat to watch is Samuel S.
Stratton who unsuccessfully sought
the gubernatorial nomination with
the claim that he could get votes
in upstate Republican areas. Strat-
ton did just that, winning a House
seat from upstate by a 2-1 margin
against overwhelming odds.
* * *
THE GOP scored one of its most
impressive victories in Pennsylvan-
ia where William Scranton defeat-
ed Democrat Richardson Dilworth
by over 400,000 votes. The race
was supposed to be close, but
Scranton ran a professional cam-
paign while charges of corruption
and his own temper ruined Dil-
worth. Scranton, however, could
not transfer his own popularity
to the defeat of Democratic Sen.
Joseph S. Clark. Clark chalked up
a 100,000 vote victory.
The young Republican governor-
elect Scranton, seems destined to
play a major role in national poli-
He is a smooth campaigner with
a now-proven ability to attract
Democratic votes. Mr. Scranton's
views are very' similar to Nelson
Rockefeller's-much more so than
George Romney's, for instance -
and if the Rockefeller wing pre-
vails in the GOP Scranton may
one day find himself running for

IN MARYLAND the Democrats
stayed in the governor's mansion
and picked up a Senate seat. Re-
publicans captured a House seat
when they defeated Democratic
incumbent Thomas F. Johnson, re-
cently indicted on charges of abet-
ting mail fraud.
EVEN THREE DAYS later, the
New England elections are up for
grabs. Recounts in Massachusetts,
Maine, Rhode Island and Vermont
are forthcoming.
However, as is often true in New
England, name candidates and
family ties proved very significant.
Two men with relatively good fam-
ily names and relatively poor qual-
ifications battled for the Senate
seat in Massachusetts. Teddy Ken-
nedy won as expected. It will be
interesting to see what he does in
The Kennedy victory aided an-
other Democrat, Endicott Peabody,
in his bid for the governorship. A

recount will decide this one, but
Republican Gov. John Volpe was
supposed to win easily. Peabody,
by the way, is another famous
Massachusetts name.
* * s
the Department of Health, Edu-
cation and Welfare to run for the
Senate in Connecticut, won as did
Democratic Gov. John Dempsey.
Former Gov. Wesley Powell of
New Hampshire wasn't even run-
ning for office, but scored a vic-
tory nonetheless. Powell, spurned
by his party in the primaries,
came out in support of Democratic
challenger John W. King. King
won and pulled in a Democratic
senator for the state, Thomas J.
McIntyle. Needless to say, New
Hampshire's Republican party is
in shambles.
Pending a recount Democrat
Philip A. Hoff has apparently tak-
en the governorship in staunchly
Republican Vermont. Recounts will
also tell whether the Democrats
have taken Republican Maine and
whether the Republicans have tak-
en Democratic Rhode Island.
LONG DORMANT Republicans
continued to pick up strength in
the South. This is one area where
the Republican party has really

vided the biggest upsets, and, in
most cases, Republicans were the
ones who fell out of the boat.

Democratic Sen. John A. Carroll
was also bested by a Goldwater
Republican, Peter Dominick.
Wyoming voters showed their
displeasure at the political she-
nanigans of Sen. J. Hickey, a Dem-
ocrat. Hickey was governor when
a Senate vacancy occurred two
years ago.
He resigned his office, passed
over the Republican lieutenant-
governor to appoint Democrat,
Jack Gage as governor and had
Gage appoint him to the Senate
seat. The outcome: Republicans
swept both Hickey and Gage out
of office
THE MOST interesting race in
the Southwest came in Oklahoma
where Republican farmer Henry
C. Bellmon did what no other Re-
publican has been able to do since
the state was admitted to the
Union in 1907-he took the gov-
ernorship. Bellmon took advantage
of Democratic feuding to accom-
plish the feat.
The Democrats picked up a gov-
ernorship in New Mexico, however,
where Jack M Campbell ousted
four-term incumbent Edwin L.
Mechem. Campbell accomplished
a minor miracle by uniting the
constantly feuding factions of New
Mexico's Democratic party.
In Texas Republican Jack Cox
put up a strong fight until rural
returns gave the governorship to
former Secretary of the Navy John
Connally, a Lyndon Johnson pro-
tege. Texas Republicans did pick
up a House seat, however, and
their surge of strength-which be-
gan when John Tower won a spe-
cial Senate election in 1961-shows
no signs of abating.
RICHARD NIXON'S 250,000 vote
defeat has overshadowed all else
out West, including some other
significant California results. An
important, and somewhat over-
looked, factor in the Nixon-Brown
race is the superb way California's
Democrats mobilized their voting

Early Tuesday the turnout in
Los Angeles County was very light

voting in the county set a new
In Southern California the Dem-
ocrats defeated three John Birch
candidates running on the Repub-
lican ticket. The losers included
incumbents Edgar W. Hiestand

ing substantially helped the Demo-
crats inall House races in the
state as they took a net gain of
nine seats.

HAWAII was one of the few
states to evince a pattern of
straight ticket voting. Democrat
Daniel K. Inouye won his Senate
race by landslide proportions and
carried the entire state ticket with
him. Along the way Democrat John

over incumbent Republican Gov.
William F. Quinn.

kiaileld has long been mentioned
for the vice-presidential slot on
the Republican ticket in 1964, but
his victory was not large enough
to enhance his chances dramat-
look upon the 1962 elections with
much satisfaction. The party has
shaken a long-time American poli-
tical pattern which dictates that
the party in power must necessar-
ily lose congressional and guber-
natorial seats.
The results are, in part, a vic-
tory for the President. While the
country has not shown itself ready
to follow him with blind devotion,
it has not shown itself dissatisfied
with his administration.
Kennedy certainly has the ten-
tative approval of the voters. If
he were running today he would
undoubtedly win by more than the
100,000 votes which barely elected
him two years ago.
probably be more amenable to
Kennedy's legislative program,
though the-e is no indication that
any of his defeated measures face
certain success. Democratic gains
in the Senate do assure passage
fore much of his program there.
Most of the Kennedy proposals
passed the Senate last time. The
outstanding exception, Medicare,
lost by two votes. The new Demo-
cratic senators are primarily lib-
eral-they will vote that way.
But the President suffered most
of his defeats in the House. Time
and again the conservative coali-
tion of Republicans and Southern
Democrats voted Kennedy spon-
sored bills down. An interesting
paradox may be that with a small-
er majority Kennedy will have a
bigger bloc of support
AN OVERVIEW of the House
races shows that Republican via-
tories were mostly at the expense
of Democratic conservatives. Dem-
ocratic liberals picked up strength
from the the California results
and other scattered races - the
Staebler victory in Michigan is
one example.
The balance of liberals and con-
servatives is still such, however,
that only pork barrel bills and cer-
tain foreign policy bills are assured
of House approval.
One final question concerns the
meaning these elections have for
the presidential campaign two
years hence. The Republicans have
added some promising personali-
ties to their list of hopefuls. More-
over, they have taken control of
a powerhouse block of states:
New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio,
and Michigan. The governors of
these states have much patronage
to distribute, and patronage is the

crux of a powerful state organiza-

BOTH PARTIES have gained
strength in new areas: the Re-
publicans,.primarily in the South;
the Democrats, primarily in the
Midwest. They will work hard to
keep their gains.
Perhaps the most important por-
tent of this election lies in some-
thing it has not done-it has not
signalled a resurgence of grass
roots Republican strength. While
personalities on the Republican
ticket continue to win, Republican
organizations are inherently strong
in few states. There is no indica-
tion that the Democratic trend in
the country-which began with
the New Deal and was merely in-
terrupted by General Eisenhower
-is about to be headed.

age existence is that whereas in general we
are moving faster and faster, there is one
area in which we are compelled to pull up
on the reins. I refer to the ever-increasing
length of time required to read an advertise-
ment without being led sadly astray.
One of the largest areas of study to which
the analyst of misleading advertising can de-
vote himself lies in the realm of record stores.
One local distributor (who must remain name-
less, albeit not blameless), for example, seems
to have the-"habit of inflating his prices with
a semantic bicycle pump. Whoever thinks up
the ads for the nation-wide chain of stores
has a magical knack for making discounts
sound better than they actually are.
'HUS ONE MAY read in a newspaper such
an attention-getting notice as "50% OFF
LIST PRICE" in bold face 50 point-or-larger
type. The average reader is so bowled over
by this that he fails to notice one slight
fallacy in this pronouncement. Next to the
huge type offering "50% OFF" is a miniscule
asterisk, which directs anyone keen-eyed
enough to notice it to a line of all-but-
microscopic type adding the proviso that the
buyer must purchase a record "at our discount
price" before he is privileged to buy one at

any advertisement which seems to say one
thing and says another.
Nor, I am sure, does the purchaser retain
a goodimpression of any advertiser who in-
dulges--even fleetingly-in such chicanery.
rJO BE SURE, this particular distributor is
not alone in trying so hard to attract cus-
tomers that at times it oversteps the bounds
of integrity; nor is such a habit peculiar to
record dealers by any means. Any store can
put on sale hundreds of articles (books, for
example), one or two of which are, priced at
19c, and advertise a sale at "19c AND UP."
Any store can display a sign, "Up to 50%
OFF," in which the "50% OFF" can easily be
read from across the street,. whereas the "Up
to" is visible only to someone with his nose
pressed against the windowpane.
The question is not whether such misleading
practices can exist, but rather whether or not
they should exist.
I am sure that disreputable advertising
practices have been around us as long as has
the art itself; but it seems that lately they
have been running rampant, so that the reader
hardly knows what to believe any more. This
is hardly to be condoned in any locality; but
in a community such as Ann Arbor, where
prices of certain commodities (for example,
books) are jacked up to begin with, it seems

publican Philip Kuehn. This con-
tinues a post-war two-party trend
in Wisconsin, a state that has
been traditionally Republican.
The eloquent senator from Ilii-
nois, Everett Dirksen's win was not
surprising. But the margin of that
victory, a small one, did leave most
observers impressed with the
showing of his opponent Sidney
Yates, a seven-term Democratic
representative from Chicago. Dirk-

To the Editor:
on the "New Conservative
Voice" can be read in two ways:
as a personal attack on the news
editor of WCBN, Harry Doerr, or
as an attack on WCBN itself
through Doerr. I believe:it is meant
as both, and that it represents a
new low in The Daily's editorial
I am not affiliated with WCBN
in any way, but I know enough
of its operations and audience to
realize that it is The Daily's only
rival as a student news medium.
This rivalry is given spice by the
fact that The Daily is essentially
liberal in attiude, and WCBN is
conservative. Though WCBN's fa-
cilities are not as extensive as The
Daily's, it has outdone The Daily
in news coverage on several oc-
casions-for instance, "Operation
Foil" on October 13, which WCBN
covered thoroughly, 'while The
Daily article-written by Miss Laz-
arus-confused the facts.
The editorial purports to be
a discussion of the dangers of
"extreme conservatism" on SOC;
but it degenerates into an attack
that seems incomprehensible until
the reader remembers The Daily-
WCBN conflict.
