A record-smashing 330 first-

'52BAd, highlighted a fast count
of Student Legislature ballots last
A total of 6,582 students went to
the polls in the two-day all-cam-
pus elections, the smallest turnout
since the spring of 1948. However,
percentage-wise, the drop was re-
latively small over last spring's
6,818 vote.

FOR BAKER, there was the
added honor of becoming the first
candidate to come in at the top
twice in a row. He also was first
to be elected a year ago. This is
his second term.

record of 317.
Also elected on the first ballot
was Phil Berry, '52 with 276 votes.
This will be his fourth term.
THE BALLOT-counting pro-
ceeded with record dispatch, as
the first ballot was completed at
8:50 p.m. This marked the first
time in the memory the counting,
which was completed at 1 a.m. to-
day, had not extended into the wee
hours. Last year, both semesters
the tally was not completed til
after 4 a.m.
The turnout drop was disap-
pointing to legislators, in lieu of
recent achievements on Thanks-
giving holiday and the library
settlement. Thirty-eight per
cent of the total enrollment
marched up to the polls, a slight
decline from last year.
The percentage vote has never
risen much above 40.
THE FIRST election quota was
established at 246. Fred Horwitz,
'54, followed Baker and Beirry
into the elite circle on the second
ballot, then. nq one else reached
the quota till Karen Fagerburg
turned the trick on the tenth.
The canine candidate, Major,
ran strongly, amassing an esti-
mated vote of almost 200. How-
ever, Men's Judiciary ruled that
the massive mutt was not a stu-
dent, and hence lacked one of
the/ qualifications for member-

The votes were redistributed to
the second-place candidates on the
ballots. It had been previously'
intimated that all Major's votes

Beside the counting tables,
