VOL. LXIII, No. 1 ANN ARBOR, MICHIGAN, TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 23, 1952
2. i MARGIN:
By ERIC VETTER
Eisenhower by almost two to one.
That's the preference result of over 12,000 University students
who voted in The Daily presidential preference poll taken during
Ike rolled up 64 per cent of the total vote of 12,244 to win a
decisive victory over the Democrat nominee Adlai Stevenson who
collected 33 per cent of the total.

THOUGH THE DAILY does not pretend the poll was scientific,
here are the results:
Eisenhower 7837; Stevenson 4041; Progressive candidate Vincent
Hallinan 44; former Socialist candidate Norman Thomas 15, Darling-
ton Hoops, present Socialist candidate 2. Students still undecided
The Eisenhower margin represents a drop in Republican strength
on campus from February when The Daily conducted a pre-conven-
tion poll during registration. At that time the heat of the Republican

race overshadowed the Democratic ,doings and the final figures gave
the Republicans 78.2 percent of the vote and the Democrats 20.7.

STEVENSON, on the other hand, showed a Itremendous increase
in popularity since the February poll. Then, the Illinois governor was
the choice of only 33 students for the Democratic standard bearer.
This is partially explained by his comparative anonymity and his
periodic statements concerning his unavailability as a candidate prior
to the convention.
On the final day of polling, Saturday morning, Stevenson
made his best showing. With graduate students mainly registering
at the time, Stevenson gathered 48 percent of the 554 votes cast
with Eisenhower polling almost 54 percent.
Senator Robert Taft's supporters were almost solidly Eisenhower |
when asked to vote for an avowed candidate. Foreign students
seemed fairly well divided between the two candidates with Steven-
son getting a slight edge.
AMONG the minor candidates, Hallinan's total is significant be-
cause he failed to receive a single vote in February. At that time,
however, Henry Wallace, 1948 Progressive candidate, polled 21 votes.
Thomas, 1948 Socialist candidate declined 12 votes from his February
total. His successor, Hoops, failed to receive a vote in February.
Undecided voters made up two percent of the total. Gen-
eral opinion among these voters is that the final five weeks of
the campaign will aid them in making up their minds.
Campus Republicans greeted the results of the poll as indicative
of the general popularity of their candidate. Dave Cargo, Grad, the
president of the "I Like Ike: club said, "the poll shows that the
student body recognizes the new liberal faction of the Republican
party and shows that the party has great appeal for young voters
and future voters."
William Dobson, of the Ann Arbor Republican Committee told
The Daily the poll revealed that "it is significant of our candi-
date's ability to draw votes from all segments of the people
including a large portion of the independents. This will not make
us over-confident," Dobson continued, "but will encourage us
to get the vote of the other 33 per cent.
Young Democrat treasurer Dave Kornbluh, '54, felt the poll
represented a socio-economic group which traditionally is Republican-

DEMOCRAT candidate for Congress from Ann Arbor, Prof . John
Dawson, of the Law School, hailed the poll's results as very encour-
aging. "The student body and faculty are always conservative in their
political opinions and in past years the Republicans have undoubtedly
had a larger popularity than this."
He felt the results had no bearing on the local race but "is in-
dicative of the general drift to the Democratic Party." Prof. Dawson
said this was in line with the larger popularity and greater reputa-
tion of Eisenhower, when he started the race.

The Office of Student Affairs is
currently restudying a request is-
sued to the Board of Regents In
July to remove the 25-year-old
driving ban which has been termed
'not enforceable" by one official.
Squelching earlier rumors that
students would be able to keep
cars on campus this year, officials
noted that the request submitted
to the Regents during the sum-
mer would be under study for sev-
THE OFFICE of Student Af-
fairs said that the request had not

ipitted in the future.

Other driving developments this
summer included a ruling by At-

the city may legally keep fines
collected while enforcing traffic
regulations on University property.
The city collects fines for such
traffic violations under an agree-

In the opinion, Millard stated
that the Regents have power to
adopt "traffic regulations" only
on University property, and not
on state, county or city highways
(for example State Street.)
University officials regard "traf-
fic regulations" as not including

Final enrollment figures for the fall semester indicate that the
University population is just about holding its own compared with
last fall's figures.
Exceeding earlier predictions, -the final tally of students enrolled
in resident credit courses will reach 17,000 according to Registrar Ira
M. Smith. Total count last year was 17,226.

Late-hour additions to Sat-
urday's total of 18,776 are ex-
pected to push the final en-
rollment of students taking any
credit courses to 20,000, accord-
ing to Smith.
In spite of a nearly-equalized
ration between freshmen men and
women, the all-campus ratio
dwindled only slightly from last
year when there were 2 men at
the University for every woman.
But the fractional man thisyear
was closer to one-fifth than one-
half, as Saturday's totals listed
11,085 men to 4,991 women.
SIX OF THE University's 16
schools and colleges reported a
slightly increased enrollment over,
last fall in breakdown figures.
They are : School of Dentistry,
College of Engineering, Medical
School, nursing school, School of
Public Health and the small hos-
pital training school.
No sharp decreases were noted
by the ten remaining schools.
