May Decide Fate
Senator Makes Bid for MacArthur
Votes in Heated Nebraska Contest
By The Associated Press
Sen. Robert A. Taft's presidential bid hangs in the balance today
as more than a million Republican-voting citizens of Wisconsin and
Nebraska step into polling booths to swing the pendulum.
In Nebraska, Tafts' forces made an open bid yesterday for the
votes of Gen. Douglas MacArthur's followers.
WITH A MILLION-VOTE total forecast, Democrats in Wis-
consin scrambled feverishly yesterday for their expected one-fourth
share in a race where Sen. Estes Kefauver of Tennessee is regarded
as top runner.
Damp weather predicted for all of Wisconsin could cut
somewhat the voter turnout in a contest to name 36 Democratic
and 30 Republican delegates to 4 * * *

An Editorial.. .

Today, everything is laid out for the convenience
of the student electorate. There are 17 voting booths,
comfortably placed under trees and the like, 114 can-
didates for 49 positions, and three referenda-every-
thing, in fact, to make the laziest student a voter.
The candidates have done all in their power
to make themselves heard. The referenda have
gotten thorough discussions in the press and on
various podia. The Student Legislature has printed
ballots and enlisted the Union Ballroom for counting

ceremonies on Wednesday night. It's all been done
--all, that is, except the voting.
This last point is one that obviously can't be taken
care of by anybody but you-the potential voter. It's
your job from here on in, to demonstrate interest in the
SL, class officers, and the other boards, all organizations
which are in turn ready and able to represent that interest
for you during the coming year.

May Hurt Voting
SL Officials Hope Half of Campus
Will Turn Out for Two Day Election
By HARLAND BRITZ
Student interest and the weatherman hold the keys to the success
of the spring all-campus elections scheduled for today and tomorrow.
Student Legislature officials are hoping for a 7,848 vote, which
would constitute 50 per cent of the student body, but the weather
bureau has forecast cloudy skies with occasional showers, which may
seriously hamper the polling. A peak temperature of 68 is promised.
ONE HUNDRED FOURTEEN candidates, in all, will be battling
it out for the 49 student posts at stake. The largest field is in the race
for the 22 SL seats where 38 candidates are in the running. The last
two candidates elected will serveQ' * * *

Party nominating conventions at
x Chicago in July.
Taft, buffetted by a defeat at
the hands of Gen. Dwight D.
Eisenhower in New Hampshire
and his own attempted withdraw-
al from the April 15 New Jersey
primary, is staking his position in
the Republican presidential race
largely on the Wisconsin outcome.
He has said he will win 20 of the
delegate contests there.
Although Eisenhower is not on
the ballot, former Gov. Harold E.
Stassen of Minnesota has offered
to share with the general one-
half of any delegate votes he wins
there and a sla'te running for Gov.
Earl Warren of California has said
it will back Eisenhower if Warren
can't make the nomination grade.
Upward of 300,000 votes are
expected to be cast in Nebraska
if the weather continues clear
and mild. Voters will choose 18
Republican and 12 Democratic
National Convention delegates-
but the winners will not be
bound legally to vote in conven-
tion for the winner of the popu-
larity contest.
The Democratic candidates in
Nebraska are Sen. Kefauver and
Sen. Kerr of Oklahoma. Kerr told
a news conference yesterday he is
now "an all-out candidate for the
Democratic nomination for presi-
dent." He indicated he will enter
other primaries regardless of the
outcome in Nebraska.
MEANWHILE, in Washington,
Sen. George D-Ga.) said yesterday
he expects Vice-president Barkley
to bid for the Democratic presi-
dential nomination now that Pres-
ident Truman has stepped aside.
Speculation continues to mount
in Washington on whether or not
Truman is planning to put his
support behind Gov. Adlai Steven-
son of Illinois. Truman has spoken
favorably of Stevenson, but there
has been no public commitment
of presidential support to anyone.

Four Campus
Leaders Ask
'Vote Yes'y
By VIRGINIA VOSS
In a pre-election rally held last
night in the League Ballroom, four
campus figures strongly urged stu-
dents to "vote yes" on the anti-
speaker ban referendum on elec-
tion balots today and tomorrow.
The rally climaxed strenuous ef-
forts of five campus political clubs
to encourage affirmative support
of the referendum. It reads: "Do
you oppose the empowering of the
University eture Committee to
restrict any recognized campus or-
garization in its choice of speakers
and subjects."
* s
EXPRESSING his faith in stu-
dent judgment, Prof. Hayward
Keniston of the romance lan-
guages department emphasized
that "academic freedom should be
no less than general freedom."
In an attack against fear of
Communism, Keniston estimat-
ed that at most only one person
in 1,000 is a Communist. "I
doubt that the other 999 can be
persuaded," he said.
Another faculty speaker, Prof.
Marvin Felheim of the English
department, stated, "I doubt if
truth can be discovered when cer-
tain sides of truth are barred."

MORE THAN 100 students
heard the speakears' arguments
for free exchange of ideas.

President Ted Friedman, '53, cit-
ed the organizational support the
referendum has received as "as-
tonishing." He saw the Lecture
Committee and the Regents by-
law it administers as repetitious of
state laws
Marge Buckley, '54, co-chair-
man of Young Progressives, saw in
the present situation the paradox
of a school receiving appropria-
tions to fulfill educational func-
tions and then failing to carry
them out.

Special to The Daily
EVANSTON-In a tedious four hour session Sunday afternoon,
delegates to the Midwest conference of Young Republican Clubs
adopted a platform which might well be a harbinger of the GOP
national convention in July.
From foreign policy to civil rights, the delegates by and large
trod the road to the right in their platform writing. Michigan's dele-
gation, with the exception of a few members, solidly voted the platform
in, along with delegates from other Big Ten and midwest schools
IN A STRONGILY WORDED foreign policy plank, delegates called
for maximum aid to nationalist China and support for Europe only
in so far as European nations show willingness to fulfill their arms
and troop quotas. They also endorsed the MacArthur Asiatic policy
and censured President Truman for removing MacArthur last summer.
In the field of national security delegates came out for no

Commenting on corruption clean-up man Newbold Morris, Brown
.charged that Morris has been associated with 20 left-wing organiza-
tions. "Morris claims he is a Lincoln Republican," Brown related, "but
in the House cloakrooms we say that this means he has not voted
Republican since Lincoln.",
OTHER DOMESTIC policies advocated by delegates and adopted
in the platform were a flat 10 per cent federal payroll cut, abolish-
ment of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation and federal anti-
lynching and anti-poll tax laws. The later civil rights laws met with
a good deal of debate before adoption.
Delegates endorsed the Hope-Aiken Farm Act which would
put subsidies on a sliding scale of 60 to 90 per cent parity. There
was fear on the part of some delegates that abolishment of sub-
sidies would completely alienate the farm vote. . -
The Taft Hartley Act, subject to some amendment, formed the
basis of the labor plank. Delegates asked that employers as well as
