Ten Juniors Seek Election To Presidential
Offices; cords Show Varied Experie'ices

I I

Campus voters, numbering more
than 3,800, will go to the polls tomor-
row in that annual spring elections to
choose the men who will both lead
and represent the in campus activi-
ties next year. Four major president-
ial offices, together with a large num-
ber of minor posts, will be filled by
the election, and 3,683 students had
registered to vote at the close of reg-
istration Friday noon.
Of principal interest, of course, will
be the contests for te principal of-
fices, where ten candidates will run
for the four presidential positions on
the campus. The Student Christian
association, the Oratorical association,
the Student council, and the Union
will choose new presidents, and be-
sides thse.offices a literary, law, en-
gineering, medic, and. combined vice-
president will be chosn for the Union,
with a corresponding secretary, and
three men tach from the senior and
junior classes will be chosen for the
Student council. ThetOratorical asso-
ciation, in addition to its president,
will choose a vice-president, secretary,
and treasurer. For the office of secre-
tary of this organization the names of
the only women students on the ballot
appear, those of Laura Soule, '28, and
Hilda Evans, '28, who will contest the
office. '
To Choose Board Members
Student members for two of the
boards wil also be chosen, the Board
in 'Control of Athletics and the Board
in Control of Student Publications
choosing their members in this fash-
ion. Two men will be chosen for the
Board in Control of Athletics, from
the junior and senior classes, and three
will be elected to the Board in Control
of Student Publications.
The race for the presidency of the
Union, where Henry Grinnell, '28, and
William V. Jeffries, '28, will oppose1
each other, promises to be one of the
most hotly contested of the election.
Both men have worked in the Union,
and have been prominent in campus
activities. For the presidency of thet
Student council Courtland C. Smith,i
'28, and John Snodgrass, '28E, will op-
pose each other in another two-way1
contest. Snodgrass has been promi-t
nent in activities .of the engineering
college and Smith has held numerous
posts on The Daily- and in the Union.
A three cornered struggle for the1
presidency o t* <1torical associa-
tion will provide ainteesting feature
of the election, . when E. J. Harris,
'30L, Robert Miller, '28, and Robert
Minnich, '28, contest the office. Allt
have been connected with the activi-
ties of the Oratorical association and
have had considerable experience in
campus forensic activities. Normanl
Bowersox, '30L, withdrew from this<
contest after being regularly nominat-
ed by thecommittee, and the name
of Harris has been added by petition.I
Both Miller and Minnich were regu-
larly nominated through the commit-
tee from the Oratorical association.
Bel1yiner, Brumbaug;, Hven, Run
The contest for te, presidency of1
the Student Christian association willr
provide, another three-cornered strug-
gle when Charles Behymer, '28, Wil-
liam Brumbaugh, 28, and KennethE
Haven, '28, try for the office. All have
had experience in the work of the
association and Haven, and Behymer
have been connected with The Daily,
while Brumbaugh has been connected
with public speaking activities of
various kinds.-
All three of these men were regu-
laily nominated for the office by the
nominating committee of the Student
Christian association, and no names
were added by petition.
In the minor offices of the Union
another three-cornered race will be
waged for the position of recording
secretary. Robert Halsted, '28,
Henry Kline, '28, and Wiliam R.
Greene, 28, will cntest for this posi-
tion, and all three have had consid-

erable experience in Union activities.
Both Kline and Halsted were regular-
ly nominated for the office by the nom-
inating committee of the Union, while
Greens withdrew from the contest l
for the presiflency of that organiza- 1
tion to enter the lists against them.I
DeLisle-Allen, '28, Thomas Dougall,I
'28, Charles Gilbert, '28, and George
Annable, '28, will run for the position
of literary vice president of the Union.

Robert Orcutt, '28D, will run for the
office of combined vice president df
the Union, an office similar to that
of the literary vice president and the
whole campus wil vote on these men.

'28L9,and Paul W. Bruske, '28L, will run
against each other for the office of
law vice-president of the Union, while
