According to Albert G. Watson,
Regional director of the FOR, the
current selective service laws give
two options to the conscientious
objector. He can either request a
1AO rating as a non-combattent
or a 1-0 rating which consists of
an indefinite deferral. A third
step which many objectors have
taken is not to register.
The new selective service plan

at the beginning of his lecture that he was talking from the scientific

This was the conclusion drawn
from a poll of student opinion
conducted by the Associated Col-
legiate Press. After probably a
record flood of editorials, adver-
tisements, petitions and counter-
petitions which has swamped the
nation's campuses, the tide of
sentiment runs strongly in favor
of Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower.
The statistical breakdown fol-
Eisenhower ......57 per cent
Stevenson .........33percent
Undecided .......... 9per cent
Other .............. 1percent
EISENHOWER'S popularity
comes in spite of the fact that
there are almost asemany who
style themselves Democrats as
there are Republicans in circula-
tion on the campuses. Thirty-two
per cent of those polled claim to
be Democrats, 36 per cent Repub-
licans, with 30 percent assuming
the shadowy guise of the inde-
pendent voter .
Parental voting patterns re-
main a strong factor in deter-
mining the political allegiance
of the student. Fifty-six per
cent confessed that they agreed
with their parents in the choice
of candidates. Nineteen per cent
have asserted their political
emancipation by disagreeing,
while a neutral 23 per cent are
listed as unsure.
Michigan student opinion in
September was quite in line with
the national iesults-a Daily poll
at registration showed 64 per cent
favoring Eisenhower, with 33 per
cent backing Stevenson.
However, college editors were at
complete variance with the overall
results. Here, 57 per cent wanted
Stevenson as President, 41 per
cent supported Eisenhower, with
a meager two percent undecided.
And the Stevenson backers
seemed much more vocal in their
support. At latest count, 14 col-
lege papers had come out editor-
ially for Stevenson, with only two
for the General.

CLC Decides
On Lecture
Ban Actions
Running the gauntlet of current
civil rights questions the Civil
Liberties Committee took action
last night on University, local and
national questions.
On the campus level the com-
mittee decided to organize a pres-
sure group among the five politi-
cal clubs who put the lecture com-
mittee referendum on the Student
Legislature ballot last semester.
The group's purpose would be to
urge SL, the Regents, and campus
groups to act on the referendum.
CLC went on record as support-
ing the proposal that "the sole
criteria" for a speaker on campus
should be current recognition of
the group sponsoring him, by the
Student Affairs Committee and
Joint Judiciary.
On the question of scholarships,
CLC took the stand that the Uni-
versity should accept only those
grants f that are based on need
and academic ability.
In discussing the atomic spies,'
Julius and Anna Rosenberg, the
group decided that they could not
pass judgement on the conclusion
of their trial, but decided to send,
a letter to President Truman ask-,
ing that the death penalty be
changed to life imprisonment be-
cause "it has no precedent in ci-
vilian courts."
CLC also passed a motion com-
mending Mayor Brown for allow-I
ing the Progressives to hold their

the climax of a triumphal day of

audience of approximately 20,000
persons who bulged Madison

Tuesday's presidential election.
ATTACKING his Republican op-
ponents, the Illinois governor de-
cared that in advance of the elec-
tion the Republicans are celebrat-
ing their victories, but they never
win "the last one."
"And the big one is the last
one, as all generals should
know," he said in a vigorous jab
at his GOP opponent, Gen
Dwight D. Eisenhower.

ful publishers, noisiest comment-

"The people turned to a man
whose name became a symbol of
high purpose," Stevenson said,
"but history has recorded that
this light was snuffed out in the
sordid triumph of expediency."
He said that the high hopes of
the American people were destroy-
ed in the chain reaction of com-
promise when Eisenhower met
with Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio
and, in the words of the Illinois
governor, adopted the principles
which Taft has advocated.

been let down by an administra-
tion he said has "robbed" them of
their pride in government.
The Republican presidential
nominee kept on repeating that
he intends to go to Korea.
With the election only a week
away, Eisenhower reverted to the
theme with which he opened it on
Sept. 2 in the deep South, the
theme of "mess in Washington."
"Part of that mess, my friends,
has been subversion, disloyalty in
government. Part of it has been
waste and extravagance in the ex-
penditure of your tax money. Part
of it has been fumbling and stumb-
