Acceptance of Constitution
Hinges on Ballots
"The proof of the pudding is in
I the eating.”
1 Today the Oregon student body
goes to the polls to select its of
ficers for the coming year. The
time for campaigning and argu
ment is past. The choice of the
majority is to determine the issue.
Both political parties wound up
their campaign last night with
mass meetings. The Laird party
met at the Sigma Chi house and
the Cherry supporters convened at
Friendly hall at the same hour, 9
Candidates Broadcast
Previous to these meetings,
Laird and Cherry, together with
the two candidates for the vice
presidency, Ted Park and Bill
Whitely, had made radio talks
over KOBE by remote control
from the Campa Shoppe, in which
they outlined their platforms and
asked for support.
Each party claims approximate
ly 1,000 votes, and to all appear
ances, both claims are justifiable.
At last year's election 80.9 per
cent of the 3702 students then in
school, or 2186, cast votes in the
presidential race. If this same ra
tio should develop today, 2223 stu
dents of the 2,748 now in school
will vote.
Close Vote Predicted
The writer believes that the per
centage of voting students will be
a little lower this year; perhaps
around 75 per cent. But even
at that there are about 200 votes
' over and above those claimed by
the rival parties, which will large
ly decide the issue of the election.
The margin which will decide the
victory one way or the other will
i not be large. In the elections held
I at the University of Washington
' a fortnight ago, the presidential
I contest was decided by a margin
of 19 votes, the winner polling
1,217 to his opponent’s 1,198.
The choice of officers is not the
only important concern of today’s
election. Included on the ballot
| will be a place to mark “Yes” or
j “No” on the acceptance of the new
student body constitution. Its ac
i ceptance will require a two-thirds
I majority of the votes cast, provid
ed there are more than 500 votes.
Elective Offices Hinge
Upon the acceptance of this con
I stitution depends the existence of
the office of senior man, for which
