Walsh Wins Seven Straight
By JOHN DAVIES
Tom Walsh seems to keep
inning campus elections with the
regularity of the tides.
Besides winning elections-his
recent wins returning him to the
Student Legislature and Board in
Control of Student Publications
are his sixth and seventh in suc-
eession-Walsh has taken active
part in so many organizations
that a list of them reads like a
roster of University political ac-
AS IF CAMPUS politics weren't
enough, Tom Walsh ran for coun-
ty clerk as a Democrat this fall
and lost in traditionally Republi-
can Washtenaw county. He also
was publicity manager for Preston
Slosson's congressional campaign.
The first-year law student,
who plans a career in politics,
is an independent who has never'
lived in a residence hall.
He was married last Easter
and was in the Army for three
years, most of the time in the
Southwest Pacific. He worked
on the business and circulation
staff of "Yank" traveling from
Australia to Japan.
Meetings for Walsh average at
least one a day, occasionally to-
taling three or more. Add to this
at least five hours alone with the
books and it can be seen his day
doesn't end with the sunset.

WALSH attributes his many
elections in spite of being inde-
pendent and not living in a resi-
dence hall to three things. He is
active in many serious groups, he
is never afrii to voice an onin-
Ion on a subject, many of which

Entering the University as a
transfer from Wayne University
in the spring of 1946, Tom
Walsh ran that semester for a
seat on the newly-formed Stu-
dent Legislature. He lost, com-
ing in 26 in a field, of 63 from
which the top 18 were seated.

WALSH'S EDITORIAL raised
the broader question of why stu-
dents weren't issued better seats
in the first place. The result was
a committee of student leaders, in-
cluding Walsh, who met with fac-
ulty, M Club members and Coach
It won the present system of
issuing tickets to football games
based on number of semesters
at the University and got stu-
dents seats starting at the 50-
That fall Walsh headed the All-
Campus Slate for the Student
Legislature election which did well
and got him elected along with
eight others. He has been a mem-
ber ever since.
SPEAKING O Walsh, Student
Legislature President Blair Moody
says "He has something to add in
discussion of all important issues."
Walsh has a reputation of know-
ing more about parliamentary
procedure than anyone else in the
Walsh has a long record of
a committee of five which met
with five faculty members of the
University Senate to discuss the
ban. The result has been SL and
Faculty agreement in principle on
a proposed change in the Univer-
sity rogulations being submitted
to the Regents this week.

WALSH CITES the recently in-
augurated faculty grading system
as another example of positive
student-faculty cooperation. This
was originated by the SL two
"Sometimes the student gov-
ernment is a bit too cautious,"
Walsh says. But he points with
pride to action it has taken, for
example the referendum vote on
the MYDA resouution.
President Ruthven had banned
MYDA from the campus without
an explanation or a hearing and
the SL passed a resolution against
the President's action.

A SIX-HOUR REFEIREND)UM
vote on the issue was held and
5500 voted in the election which
sustained the SL action.
Tom Walsh would like to see
some changes made in election
procedures, but favors the Hare
system of proportional voting.
"I think people should be
elected by what they think and
by what their potential capabil-
ities are," Walsh says. He fa-
vors a system of open houses
scheduled by the SL held at dif-
ferent dormitories and public
buildings, likecthe League, at
which all the candidates would
be present. This would acquaint
students with the candidates.
Walsh initiated a campus-wide
rally two years ago to further this
end. He also thinks a more ex-
tensive questionaire than the one
printed in the Daily this fall
would also be advisable.
"Lack of student interest is
what killed the former student
governments," Walsh says, and he
thinks the reason only a third of
the campus voted this semester
was that they didn't know any-
thing about the candidates that

For Her Gift
It shouldn't happen to a dog
-but every year about this time,
it happens to almost every man
on campus-the problem of what
to buy her for Christmas.
Men have, or so one hears, been
trying to figure out women for
centuries. But come Christmas-
tide, for some reason her tastes
and preferences become a sudden
THERE ARE certain things
which always please a woman.
Although flowers and candy are
nice, they are not a lasting gift
-so at Christmas, they are to
be avoided unless one is at a
In the first place, records are
always welcome. Scarves of all
types are another important
addition to Milady's posses-
sions. Simply observing her
color-schemes will usually lead
to the proper choice of color.
She may wear them at the
neck of her suits or sweaters,
tucked in or out of her coat, ba-
bushkas, with her formal attire
or matched with mittens.
NOTICE WHETHER or not
she has matched mitten-and-
scarf sets, or whether she has a
white scarf to wear with her
Men are inclined to prefer
subtle perfume, so a word to
the wise is sufficient. But try
to carry out her preferences in
An initialed lighter and cig-
arette case, or perhaps a match-
ed compact and cigarette case,
would be nice for the Miss of

IF SHE LIKES certain poets
or authors a quick call to her

tion of whether or not she has
their latest writings. In case she

Most women like jewelry;
but again, it's purely a matter
of observation. And of course,
there's hardly a women alive
who doesn't appreciate a pho-
tograph from Him.
So observation is the key when
buying her Christmas gift. And
if by any chance she's just said
"Yes," there should be no prob-
lem when Dec. 25 arrives.
