Okefenokee Swamp critters are
bilantly confident that their re-
ntly drafted presidential candi-
yte Pogo will walk away with
ore than the swampland vote in
e national election.
As the 'possum's campaign man-
'er and infallible strategist P.
Barnum analyzed it : "Pogo is
JRE to sweep the nation's im-
rtant undecided voters. He has
3 much in common with them;
ago is UNDECIDED himself."
REALIZING the expediency of
ialyzing this complex political
uation, this reporter boarded the
'st available river raft into the
urky Okefenokee territory for a
ecial interview with Pogo and
s loquacious sidekick Barnum.
Barnum expounded his obser-
ration that although all the
wamp critters were agreed
Pogo should enter civilization,
Pogo was still reluctant to shoul-
ler the responsibilities of human

"It ain't safe to leave the swamp
and go into the world of atomic
bombs and rocket ships. I'm goin'7
to stay right here with my fishin'
Pogo said.1
"You owe it to the ILLUSTRI-
OUS inhabitants of this BOUNTI-
FUL bayou to make the noble
SACRIFICE and lay yourself up-
on the altar of HUMANITY," Bar-'
nUm stated.
"I is happy here," protestedI
"It is PREPOSTEROUS to be-
lieve that you would pass up the
GOLDEN opportunity of achiev-
ing IMMORTALITY for happi-
ness," Barnum roared. "You will
go down in the ANNALS of history
as a great patriot. You will be
slurred in vicious CARTOONS in
every paper in the country. You
will be ATTACKED by all sides
VATISM. With luck you can be-
come a MARTYR. You may even
have the good fortune to be the
object of an assassin's bullet."
"I don't wanta be no martyr,"
Pogo said.
"Pogo, my CAPRICIOUS can-
didate, you owe it to your con-
stituency to accept the presi-
dency. We could use a couple of
deep freezes to TIDE us over the
Organ Recital'

Past Election
(Continued from Page 1)
Teddy Roosevelt boosters
learned of the trend toward his
reelection in 1908 from the stage
of the Whitney Theatre.
1904 was apparently the dullest
election night in campus history.
A few of the more politically-
minded gathered in local billiard
parlours for the returns, but con-
fusion on the telegraph lines re-
sulted in little news and the crowd
soon dwindled away.
Lincoln's election in 1860 re-
sulted in one of the largest po-
litical celebrations in campus his-
tory. A giant ox roast was held
on the campus from noon until
well into the evening.

baton titles, to offer a sort of
"vote of confidence." Miss Geier
responded with a letter and an
autographed picture, whereupon
the men decided to invite Miss
Geier and a friend, Pat Weigner,
to be their Saturday guests.
Asked how she happened to be-
come interested in baton twirling,
Miss Geier said that she took up
the halftime art while recovering
from polio in 1949. Recently she
has been demonstrating her abil-
ity on "The Happy Hour," Detroit
ABC television show.
Miss Geier said she was par-
ticularly impressed with the Uni-
versity's drum major Dick Smith,
'53 BAd., and their two baton
wielders Floyd Zarbuck, '54 A&D
and Bill Modlin, '55 "who were
really terrific."
The pretty majorette added that
she had been offered scholarships
from several colleges because of
her specialty.
She and her friend also ate din-
ner with the Reeves men and were
escorted to "Autumn Nocturne" by
willing house members.

THE FLASHCARD SECTION pictured above played a key part
during the second quarter and the halftime performance at
yesterday's football game.
Among the colorful displays put on by the fifteen hundred stu-
dents who take part in the section were a "UM" and a "Hi I" during
the second quarter.
One of the stunts accompanying the band's performance at
halftime was a block "M." As a salute to last night's Tommy Dorsey
dance the section showed a yellow autumn leaf with the letters "TD"
in blue in the center. As a reminder to Tuesday's coming election all
spectators were urged to vote by a blue "VOTE" on a yellow back-
