Architect Seeks To Serve
As Lit Class president
An architect's claim to serve as president of the literary college
senior class will be decided tonight by Men's Judiciary.
The architecture student is, Doug Lawrence, '53 A&D, captain-
elect of the Wolverine basketball team, whose petition for the position
has been challenged.
? He bases hiS claim to run on recent procedure which has oc-
casionally allowed students from his school to vote for literary college
senior class offices.
HOWEVER, available records are silent on all aspects of the issue.
Currently the architecture school.-elects no officers-of its own.
Arguments against Lawrence's candidacy also are based on

Grass Roots Politics

Write-in Candidate Eisenhower Runs
Close Behind Favorite Son Stassen
MINNEAPOLIS-(P)Gen. Eisenhower, fresh from a victory in
New Hampshire's presidential primary election, ran a strong write-in
second to favorite son Harold E, Stassen last night with nearly one-
sixth of the precincts reporting in Minnesota's primary.
In Hennepin County, the State's most populous, Eisenhower was
running nearly two to one over Stassen with about one-fourth of the
precincts reporting.
MOST POLITICAL OBSERVERS had believed the primary would
be a "shoo-in" for Stassen, elected governor of the state three times.
Returns from 645 of the state's 3,769 precincts gave Eisen-
hower 18,123 votes to 24,807 for Stassen. The totals included no
write-in votes from St. Paul, O



the state's second city. Only
automatically counted voting
machine figures were available
at first from St. Paul.
On the Democratic ballot, Sen.
Kefauver (D-Tenn.), ran well
ahead of President Truman in the

one whose name was printed on

Washtenaw County Republicans

50-47 roll call vote which tatpled
the endorsement.

Athletic Director Herbert 0.
(Fritz) Crisler returned from thet
weekend Big Ten meetings in Chi-
cago yesterday to clarify the four1
minor changes in the Western
Conference code.k

1) Athletes, to maintain eligi-
bility, must have a grade average=
(usually C average or better) sat-i
isfactory for graduation.1
2) Competition must be com-.
pleted within five years of resi-
3) Schools must file academic1
records of athletes annually with
the conference commissioner. t
4) Athletes accepted for en-1
trance and taking up residence at
a school cannot be contacted by
any other conference school.

THE FIRST regulation will not
affect Michigan, Crisler said. Ath-
letes will, as before, have the right
to appeal for eligibility if their
average is close to the required 2.0
and there are. some extenuating
As a casein point, Crisler
pointed out that the new rule
would have had no effect on the
controversial decision allowing
Topor to compete on the grid-
The fourth regulation, accord-
ing to Crisler, is aimed at ending
such incidents as the recent Mu-
setti case, where the all-city De-
troit Denby halfback was safely
snuggled in a South Quadrangle
room, only to wind up at MSC.
However, there have been seven
or eight similar cases elsewhere
in the conference, he added. I
The other changes were of a
more technical nature and would
have no particular significance
here, he said.

to the Democratic Administration
"Ike" supporters, confident at;
the outset of pushing through
their motion, steadily lost nerve
as the evening wore on. By the
time the Sallade resolution got
the floor it was the opposition
which was confident.
It was evident from the dis-
parity between 'he "Ike" applause
and the Genera's tally that much
of his backing came from the 75
or so non-delegates. But it was not
until the almost unanimous op-
position of the Ypsilanti delegates
had been heard that the Eisen-
hower forces knew they were

SIGNIFICANT items in the roll
call, which followed an indecisive
voice vote, were the unexpected
support given by announced "Ike"
backers foi' the tabling motion, and
the pointed absence of Cleary
when his name was called. Cleary
explained later that as state chair-
man he had declined to take a
side in the dispute.
Efforts of "Ike" groups met
with similar lack of success in
most Michigan conventions last
night, a signal exception being
Isabella County where six out of
eight delegates are announced
supporters of the General.
Sallade, flushed but good-na-
tured after the defeat, said he was
"naturally disappointed that the
tabling motion passed." But he
emphasized that Washtenaw had
"proved conclusively by the vote
that Eisenhower has tremendous
support in this country."
Not so good-natured was Dave
Cargo, Grad., president of the
campus Ike group, who was ruled
out as a delegate from Manchester
by Chairman John Dobson, off a
'Afterwards Cargo was red-faced
and angry because in disqualifying
him the Chairman had virtually
negated the convention's support
of a Cargo motion which put the
body on record as favoring equality
of economic opportunity, regard-
less of race, creed or color. Dobson
told The Daily this morning that
the validity of Cargo's motion was
still being decided.

delegation to the President if he
chooses to run again. No campaign
had been made for Truman in the
state. A small effort had been
made for Kefauver.
Humphrey in 644 precincts got
17,279 votes. Kefauver polled 3,344

A surprisingly heavy vote was
recorded in some areas of the
state, despite mixed rain and snow
that fell most of the day. In Hen-

Minneapolis, polling places ,ran

Barring unforseen defense needs,
the nation's college enrollment in
September ought to keep pace with
this year's figures.
That is the optimistic prediction
of Washington experts, according
to a story in the New York Herald
At the same time, man-power
experts are wary over the discard-
ed Universal Military Training
program,the Tribune said.
"Although the shelving of .UMT
may seem reassuring to some col-
leges now, it is likely to turn out
by 1955 to have been a short-
sighted move."
Local administrators refused to
comment, either on impending
University.enrollment or on more
distant figures. They protested
the defense situation was too fluid
to warrant their "going out on a
limb" now.

THE TRIBUNE listed three

an influx of Korean veterans to
boost college enrollments.
., * ,
PREDICTIONS are all based on
this year's figures. Altogether 80,-
592 fewer students are enrolled at
colleges and universities this year
than last, but there are still 2,-
116,000 men and women taking
courses in higher education, the
Tribune noted. The overall drop
from last year to this was eight
per cent.
University figures for last
September generally followed the
national trend. Then the fig-
ures dropped 10.2 per cent lower
than pre-Korean War figures.
As of this semester, the latest
local figures read a six-year low
of 17,742 students enrolled.
Crux of the whole enrollment
problem is the deferment issue. If
defense needs stay stable then
there is no immediate problem, ac-
cording to the Tribune.
