BLOC VOTING-Daily cartoonist Bill Hampton's characterization of bloc voting on campus has be-
come a classic. However, the bloc-voting machine, being cranked by the politician, is beginning
to get rusty around the corners. Student leaders even predict that it will break down completely
if voters use their ballots intelligently and not vote solely on social-group interests.

FIRST will be an amendment to
the Student Legislature Constitu-
tion, which must be supported by
;wo-thirds of those voting in order
to go into effect.
The amendment changes Sec-
tion Three of Article One: "Any
eligible student who wishes to
run for the Student Legislature
may appear on the election bal-
lot if he or she presents to the
Election Committee, before the
established deadline, a petition
signed by at least one-hundred-
and-fifty students. The Legisla-
ture is authorized to require an

The proposal would change the
paragraph to read: "Any eligible
student who wishes to be a candi-

may appear on the election ballot
by filing application with the Cit-

Second question on the ballot
will be a referendum proposed
by The Daily to sample opinion

The first question, which is sim-
ilar to question six asked of SL

the Legislature will act on revival

two alternative "orientation pro-

dents will attempt to influence
Legislature decisions on policies
which directly affect themselves,
and find out what methods they
would use.
The final question is open

room to express himself on the
policies of the Legislature.
It mentions SL sponsorship of
football pep rallies, cooperation
with the University on faculty

With the extremely large enroll-
ment and the present attitude of

proper atmosphere to foster such

On question 6: School spirit, if

from the student body as a whole
and cannot be imposed from above
by the establishment of a "class

od. Beanies.and other such juve-

6. (c) Yes; 6. (d) Yes.
1. Under a districting system,
students couldn't vote for a can-
didate they know is good in an-
other district. Most students' con-
acts aren't limited to certain
'districts." 5. I favor the contin-

(2) By including the above
named groups or others it would
decrease the effectiveness of the
Legislature body by making it too
large. Also some of these groups,

the mutual activities of the vari-
ous groups.

On Question 2: I believe that
limiting the non-voting delegates
in the SL to only significant
groups like the League, Union,
IFC, etc., represent an efficient
cross-section of student opinion,
and I think that any attempt at
coordination by an advisory com-
mittee of the SL will only be met
by non-interest and complication.

5. No.; 6.(a) Yes; 6.(b) Yes;
6.(c) Yes; 6.(d) Yes.
SL terms should continue on a
two semester basis because under
this plan members are more re-
sponsible to the students. Inter-

bers stand on campus issues and
to approve or disapprove of legis-
lative activities.

Six questions were asked of the 61 Student Legislature candi-
dates by the SL elections committee. Each student was given fifty
words in which to amplify any of his answers:
* * * *
1. DO YOU FAVOR the continued use of the Hare System over
a districting plan based on geographic districts, residence units, cam-
pus organizations, or college and school units? Yes, No, No Opinion.
* * * *
2. WOULD YOU FAVOR the inclusion on the SL of non-voting
delegates from the League, Union, SRA, Aim, IFC, Pan Hel, and
Assembly rather than 'having the SL coordinate campus activities
through an advisory committee containing representatives of all
,ampus organizations? Yes, No, No Opinion.
Editor's Note: The Daily feels that this is "loaded", in that neither
plan is part of the present SL set-up. Readers are warned that the answers
do not necessarily reveal favorableness to either plan.)
3. DO YOU FAVOR the two semester Legislature term over a
three semester term? Yes, No, No Opinion.
4. DO YOU FAVOR the prohibition of bicycle riding on campus
sidewalks? Yes, No, No Opinion.
5. DO YOU FAVOR discontinuing the use of candidates' peti-
tions? Yes, No, No Opinion.
6. DO YOU FAVOR the establishment of a Freshman-Soph
Week including the following projects:
A. Beanies for Freshmen recognition? Yes, No, No Opinion.
B. Get-acquainted pep rallies? Yes, No, No Opinion.
C. Freshman-Sophomore tug-of-war? Yes, No, No Opinion.
D. Talent show to climax the week? Yes. No, No Opinion.

STARRED CANDIDATES are those who have been credited by
the Elections Committee with having participated in the highly-
recommended SL training program.
To qualify, candidates must have attended at least two of the
four training sessions and have worked actively on a Legislature
committee during the tryout period.

5. No; 6.(a) Yes; 6.(b) Yes;
6.(c) Yes; 6.(d) Yes.
The Hare system is more ad-
vantageous to the student if the
block system of voting is abolish-
ed, and I believe that this could
be done. The Hare system entitles
a voter to support more than one
candidate and to get an individu-
al in office who supports his ideas.

5. Yes; 6.(a) No; 6.(b) Yes;
6.(c) No; 6.(d) Yes.
2. When the SL was formed
there were two possibilities for its
make-up. There could be repre-
sentation of students or of groups.
In the interests of closer represen-
tation and campus unity, the pres-
ent plan was adopted. Putting the
proposed members into the Leg-
islature would divide the group
into partisan segments.

Although I do not favor block
voting which is prevalent under
the Hare system, district voting
would be unfair because; 1. there
is no fair method of apportioning
delegates; 2. good material would
be cut out when from two excel-
lent candidates in one district
only one could be elected.

5. Yes; 6.(a) No; 6.(b) Yes;

4. Menace is not enough to pro-
hibit. The type of riding should
be controlled. 5. The manner of
passing them around campus hin-
ders their value. Use optional.
6. Many events already take place
during the year and too many
would be injurious to campus co-
ordination. Only the best campus
traditions should be held.

The Hare system represents the
popularity of candidates on the
campus in general.
Including non-voting delegates

confusion, whereas a committee
could do a more efficient job.
The University definitely needs

in the pre-war days.

ordinate campus activities. Inclu-
sion of non-voting groups would
weaken SL's position as a repre-
sentative of the whole student
body. Do not discontinue candi-

can be valuable for securing
votes through personal contact.

5. No; 6.(a) No; 6.(b) Yes; 6.(c)
