Grade Schoolers Attend IFC Party

Washington to Observe
Anniversary Tomorrow

Washington, D.C., one of the
most unique cities in the world,
will celebrate its 155th anniver-
sary tomorrow.
Since its construction, architects
as well as the average visiting tour-
ist have agreed that the city is
one of the most beautiful and
skillfully conceived anywhere. Prof.
Harlow 0. Whittemore of the ar-
chitecture department commented
that only Paris, which has been
in the process of rebuilding over
a period of several hundred years
can compare to it.
Original Plan of Frenchman
The original plan of Washing-
ton by a Frenchman, Pierre
Charles L'Enfant, was followed
very closely and was very good
according to Whittemore. "How-
ever, the city that grew up on the
outskirts of the originally planned
city has been rather poorly con-
Prof. Preston W. Slosson of the
history department said that be-
cause of the architecture and lo-
cation, Washington was one of
the most imposing cities in the
"This country isn't unique in
having a special district for the
capital, however," Prof. Joseph E.
Kallenback of the political science
department pointed out. He said
both Mexico and Australia have
such an area.

"It was necessary for the gov-
ernment to be able to exercise
complete control over the land on
which the federal buildings stand,"
he said.
Journalistic Capital
Washington has been a central
place for news to form also. Prof.
Karl F. Zeisler of the journalism
department said, "Journalism has
been honored in Washington, the
home of great newspapers. Edi-
tors today still strive to match the
clarity, impartiality, and complete-
ness of the Niles' Register during
the first half of the 19th Century.

f "


party started in 1939 as a .com-
munity service of the IFC and the
I University.
The first program was held in
Hill Auditorium but it was so dif-
ficult to control youthful enthus-
iasm in one building IFC decided
s to open fraternity doors and have
1 43 separate; parties.
- "Bigger and Better"
. Since 1946 the party has been
s an annual event and according to

IFC and University officials, "It
gets bigger and better every year."
Invitations in the form of parent
permission slips were distributed
to the first through fourth grade
pupils several weeks ago.
Parents were responsible for
bringing the children to and from
the parties, but between 1:30 and
3:30 p.m. the fraternity men were
strictly at the children's mercy.

young ones mobbing him.
Guests Exhaust Hosts
Most of the social chairmen
learned they had underestimated
the eniergy of their guests, for
the boys and girls soon wore out
the hosts in game-playing.
However, most of the frat men
had dates who entertained the
younger set with Christmas carols
until the arrival of Santa.
Vets To See
Variety Show
Patients at "Veterans Hospital
will be treated to the Arnold Air
Society's top-rated variety show
Tuesday night at 8:30.
The show, often called the "poor

campus comedy and dancing acts.
This is the fourth year that the
Air force ROTC honorary organi-
zation has staged the program.


Survey Research Center Set
To Begin Third Voting Study

As another presidential election
draws near, the University's Sur-
vey Research Center is preparing
to start its third national study
to find out why people vote the
way they do.
Angus Campbell, director of the
Center's previous voting studies
in 1948, 1952 and 1954, said, "Our
findings provide a kind of con-
temporary history, a detailed re-
cord of political behavior at one
point of time."
The study is slated to be even
more important )n combination
with the Center's previous find-
"The comparison of these data
with those gathered in former
elections makes possible a wide
range of analyses which could not
be undertaken from a single set
of "data," he commented.
The 1948 and 1952 data made it

possible to demonstrate the great
differences which occur in the
nature of voter behavior from one
election to the next, Campbell
continued. The apathy and inde-
cision of 1948 contrasted sharply
with the interest and resolution of
1952, he explained.
The Center has received a grant
of $110,000 from the Rockefeller
Foundation for the 1956 study.
Approximately 2,000 people, sel-
ected by chance and representa-
tive of regions of the United States
as well as the nation as a whole
will be taken just before and justJ
after the election.
