New Voting Record Seen Possible;
Ballot Counting To Begin Tonight
A thumping total of more than 4,000 students flocked to the
polls yesterday to register one of the heaviest first day votes ever cast
in an all-campus election.
The spectre of rain, which hung over campus all day, did not
materialize until the final minutes of voting when a light drizzle
showered poll workers closing up the booths.
VOTING WILL continue from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. today at the 16
polling tables spotted in convenient locations around campus, with

INGTON-President Tru-

but that America's allies
ng "steady progress" to-

time, that support could spell out the future of student gov-
ernment on this campus. If you believe, as we do, that an
elected student voice should have a part in University affairs,
you will get out and vote in the SL election today.
The Legislature, at present bothered by growing
pains, is torn by those who offer varied plans for reor-
ganization. It has been hit lately by criticism from
many quarters. But if this criticism results in a boycott
of the polls, SL could fold.
In that case, it would be neatly reorganized--right out
of existence.

ing total could be rolled up by
the time polls close today.
Predictions from the weather-
man indicated that today's bal-
loting would be overshadowed by
cloudy skies with scattered
showers throughout the morning
and colder temperatures pre-
dominating during theday. Ex-
pected high is 52 degrees.
A total vote of 7,700 would top
the percentage balloting record set
last term when 45 per centof the
student population cast ballots.
At that time, more than 4,000 votes
were also recorded on the first day.

ADDING interest to the voting
for SL positions this fall is a driv-
ing ban referendum on the ballot.
which was requested by the Office
of Stdent Affairs.
e referendum gives students
a chance to ,express their opin-
ions on the controversial Uni-
versity driving regulations.
YESTERDAY'S balloting pro-
ceeded with marked dispatch and
no election irregularities were re-
ported by Men's Judiciary Council
president, Joel Biller, '53L.
However, SL's elections chair-
man, Robin Glover, '53, warned
that a few ballots had been
noticed which were not punched
by election workers and would
be marked invalid when ballot
counting starts today.
Miss Glover,,asked polling table
workers to be especially careful
to see that all ballots are correctly
punched today and also requested
that workers on duty from 4 to 5
p.m. remain at their posts until the
special truck picks up the ballot-
ing equipment.
Yesterday's ballots were under
lock and key last night in the Ad-
ministration Bldg. where they will
remain until the ballot tabulating
proceedings begin at 7 p.m. today
in the Union ballroom.
SL officials are hoping for a
speedy count since only the 23
Legislature posts and the refer-
endum are involved in the elec-
tion. Members of Alpha Phi
Omega service fraternity will as-
sist SL members who are not run-
ning for re-election in counting
the Legislature ballots.


If you don't vote today you can neither take pride'in

SL's future actions nor gripe about them.
The sixteen voting booths will be open all day. Whether
you are for "action," "strong" government, "reorganization"
or just the status quo, we hope that you will not let the ideal
of student government down.

Malin Says
Civil Liberty
Is Necessary
Patrick Murphy Malin, national
director of' the American Civil
Liberties Union, said last night at
Kellogg Auditorium that civil lib-
erties provide the means of ans-
wering the fundamental questions
which perplex every society, and
warned that the nation must more
precisely define the term "subver-
sive" or individual freedom would
be threatened.
Malin, who spoke on "Ordered
Freedom: Democracy's Answer to
Tyranny and Anarchy," said that
the problems society must face are
the limitations to be imposed" on
the individual's freedom of inquiry
and communication.
HE WENT ON to say that cer-
tain liberties were protected in
the Bill of Rights, but in inter-
preting these freedoms, abuses
constantly occurred. He sited re-
cent trials by publicity given to
persons accused of "subversion" as
an example.
Malin defined "subversion" as
acts of violence, espionage, sab-
otage, treason in time of war,
and infiltration in government
for the purposes of disruption.
In the field of motion picture
censorship, Malin claimed that
recent Supreme Court decisiona
had broadened the concept of
movies as being an expression of
ideas, and had ruled out sacrilege
and violations of the vague general
public interest as being grounds
for suppression on any films.

G&S Production Set To Open

Emphasizing that a belief in
God gives the broadest perspective
in life, the Rt. Rev. James A. Pike,

a close last night.

Celebrating his 25th year of
touring in the United States, Hor-
owitz believes that the best audi-
ences in the world are to be found
in colleges. The impression he
gets from these audiences is that
they "obviously attend concerts
not just to be seen but to be ed-
ucated and, most important, to
enjoy music."

HOROWITZ has always been a
pioneer in introducing new or less
familiar music in his concerts be-
cause he believes that the Ameri-
can people are concerned with im-
proving their tastes and knowl-
edge of music. He feels that the
best way to do this is to bring

There won't be any dead ducks
on the stage when the Gilbert and
Sullivan Society's production of
"Yeomen of the Guard" opens its
four day run at 8 p.m. today in
Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre.
A couple of years ago during an
opening night G&S performance,
one of the actors, supposedly con-
templating suicide, pointed his
pistol in the air. Offstage, the
show's stage manager fired a shot
and tossed a dead duck which
sailed through the air in a high
arc, landing at the flustered ac-
tor's feet.
This stage manager also de-
lighted in nailing down props that
the actors had to pick up.
