Taft, Kefauver
Score Victories
Wisconsin, Nebraska Primaries
Hailed as Turning Point by Ohioan
By The Associated Press
Sen. Robert A. Taft showed a new turn of speed in the race for
the Republican presidential nomination yesterday while Sen. Estes
Kefauver surged farther in tint in the Democratic field.
Hitting the comeback trail after earlier reverses, Taft rolled up a
tight but impressive lead over Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower in the
Nebraska primary and scored a thumping victory over his other major
rivals in Wisconsin.
JUBILANTLY, Taft commented: "Midwestern voters have demon-
strated there is just as much of a ground swell for Taft as for Eisen-
hower."
Kefauver; the Democratic front-runner now that President
Truman has definitely stepped aside, romped off with both the
Wisconsin and Nebraska contests.
The lanky 48-year-old Tennessean promptly hailed his triumph in
Nebraska as a victory "against the entire Democratic machine," con-
tending he had overcome White House support and heavy cash outlays
for his opponent, Senator Robert S. Kerr.
IN WISCONSIN, Kefauver captured 85.3 per cent of the total
Democratic vote against pro-Truman slates and won all of. the state's
28 delegates to the Democratic National Convention.
In Nebraska, Kefauver far out-distanced Kerr, with 1,856 of
the state's 2,058 precincts showing him ahead by 54,457 to 36,104
It was a Jolt to- Kerr ii his first primary contest, but the wealthy
Oklahoma oilman announced he will stay in the fight.
With nearly three-fourths of the Nebraska votes counted, Gov.
Adlai Stevenson of Illinois, a possible "dark horse" entry, had received
904 write-in votes compared with 750 for Truman and 485 for Senator
Richard B. Russell of Georgia.
a* * *E*
POLITICAL STRATEGISTS said Taft's double-barreled victory
in Wisconsin and Nebraska had unquestionably recaptured much, if not
all, of the ground he lost to Eisenhower in the New Hampshire and
Minnesota primaries.
With 1,893 of Nebraska's 2,058 precincts counted, Taft had a
sizable lead over Eisenhower. The score: Taft 67,642, Eisenhower
53,877, Harold E. Stassen 46,112.
The lead switched five times before Taft finally pulled out to
a commanding margin of victory. Stassen's name was on the
Nebraska ballot, but all votes for Taft and Eisenhower were write-ins.
In Wisconsin, Taft won 24 of the state's 30 delegates to the
GOP national convention. Six went to California's Gov. Earl
> Warren. Stassen got none.
With only a few precincts missing, Taft rolled up a vote of 313,999,
followed by Warren with 260,215, and Stassen 168,919. Eisenhower
was not entered, and Wisconsin law bars write-in votes.
* * * *
BOTH TAFT and Kefauver were eying the upcoming party con-
ventions in Michigan this Friday and Saturday. Both consider Michi-
gan a key state.
If Kefauver meant to do any politicking at all in Michigan,
he was extremely limited as to time. He said that "although he
hoped to get some Michigan votes at the convention," he was too
far removed from the immediate scene to speak with authority.
For the Eisenhower forces, however, there was one consolation-
Auditor General John B. Martin, Jr., a candidate for the Republican
nomination for U.S. Senator, joined the Ike bandwagon yesterday.
Martin seconded Secretary of State Fred M. Alger, Jr., a candidate
for the GOP nomination for governor, in endorsing Eisenhower.
MEANWHILE Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. (R-Mass.) flew to
Paris late yesterday to confer with Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower after
declaring that yesterday's primaries were "not setbacks for Eisen-
hower at all."
Lodge said at a new conference the primaries in Wisconsin and
Nebraska would not have "the slightest influence on General Eisen-
hower's reurn"
"I don't know when General Eisenhower will return," he said,
"but it will have nothing to do with political expediency."

45 Percent
Vote Scores
New Record
Youngblood. Ely
Head SL Victors
By HARLAND BRITZ
Campus interest in student gov-
ernment reached an all-time high
yesterday as a record breaking 45
per cent of the student body went
to the polls during the two day
all-campus elections.
The other record breaking per-
formance was turned in by Jim
Youngblood '54, who pulled in 353
first place votes and thus became
the first candidate elected to Stu-
dent Legislature.
* * *
TWO OTHER candidates, Bob
Ely, '54E with 303 first placers,
and Joe Sullivan, '52 withi 284,
were also elected on the first bal-
lot. The initial quota was set at
284.
In breaking the campus ree-
ord, 7;164 of the University's
15,994 students cast ballots.
Actually only about 15,000 stu-
dents had the opportunity to
vote, since about 1,000 students
at the Rackham school in De-
troit, were not furnished with
ballots.
The high percentage broke
the 42 per cent record set in the
spring of 1950 when 7,919 students
voted. However the University en-
rollment has dropped considerably
since then.
WHEN THE figures were an-
nounced, the crowd burst 'into
applause. SL officials showed con-
siderable excitement and pleasure
over the mandate.
Record breaker Youngblood
was as surprised as he was
pleased. The tall, good looking
sophomore, is currently pres-
ident of Adams House of the
West Quad and a pledge to
Sigma Phi Epsilon fraterygity.
Be is not an incumbent.
His 353 votes broke the old ree-
ord of 330 set last fall by Bob
Baker, '52 BAd.

On Contract
By The Associated Press
Kaiser Steel announced last
night that it has reached agree-
ment with the CIO United
Steel Workers for a new con-
tract based on recommenda-
tions of the Wage Stabilization
Board.
It was one of the first breaks
in the threatened nation-wide
steel strike, scheduled for this
Tuesday.
Kaiser said the new contract
covers a pay boost of 17% cents an.
hour.
MEANWHILE, in Washington,
the Administration disclosed that
it is giving active study to the pos-'
sibility of seizing the steel industry
as a means of heading off the wage
strike.
Senator Taft (R-Ohio) in a
Senate speech said he had heard
that seizure of the steel plants
was contemplated and protested
any such move as "very high-
handed and arbitrary.' The Re-
publican presidential candidate
said the proper move in the situ-
ation is an 80-day anti-strike in-
junction under the Taft-Hartley
law.
The Washington developments
came as wage talks between the
industry and the 650,000 CIO
Steelworkers continued in dead-
lock.
A high hurdle for the negoti-
ators to get over was the industry
demand for a big price rise to com-
pensate for any pay boost.

The CLC-SL referendum, calling for removal of the Lecture
Committee, was passed by the student body by nearly a two to one
margin, according to last night's final tabulations on the referenda.
Also approved by an overwhelming majority was the establish-
ment of a University sponsored student bookstore, while the proposed
coeducational student Union fell by the wayside in a hairsplitting
3,469 to 3,498 decision. ,

Law'Student
Dies Suddenly
Cause of Death
Still Undetermined
James R. Story, '52L, died at 6
a.m. yesterday morning at Health
Service from an undetermined
cause.
The 35-year-old student from
Alice, Tex., was "incoherent" when
admitted at 9 p.m. Tuesday. Dr.
Warren Forsythe, Health Service
director, said Story had been suf-
fering from a "chronic illness."
Because an autopsy performed
yesterday did not determine the
cause of death, the stomach con-
tents will be sent to State Health
Laboratory in Lansing for analysis,
Coroner Edwin C. Ganzhorn re-
ported.
Story entered Law School in
September, 1947, after receiving a
Bachelor of Science and Master of
Science degrees from the Agricul-
ture and Mechanical college of
Texas. He was single and lived at
309 E. Hoover.

ke-filled Union ballroom cheered
e referenda's outcome was made.
The most applaus'e followed the
announcement of the speakers'
ban referendum victory.
Designated a "vote of confi-
dence" for future action by its
sponsors, the referenduli asked,
"Do you oppose the empowering
of the Lecture Committee to re-
strict any recognized campus
organization in its choice of
speakers and subjects?"
To the surprise of SL members
who had predicted an overwhelm-
ing yes vote on the coed Union,
the referendum was defeated. One
thousand students who designated
themselves males disapproved of
the Union as opposed to 859 ap-
provers.
Women supported the referen-
dum,M 546 to 510, while the un-
specified vote was 1988 dissenting
as opposed to 2,074 approving. SL
officials felt that the large num-
ber of unspecified votes was caus-
ed by the inconspicuous location
of the question of sex on the bal
lots.
The remaining referenda ques
tion, 'Should the University oper
ate or authorize the operation o
a non-profit bookstore, handling
new books, used books and sup
plies?" was passed by a 6,480 to
439 vote.
