Final Voting Today
On Junior Weekend
Queen Candidates
Twelve Now on List as
Primaries Declared
Null and Void; Cards
Are Necessary
Fred Hammond, g e n o r a 1
chairman of Junior Weekend
and ASI'O president-elect, last
night announced the primaries
held Wednesday for Junior
Weekend queen are to be re
garded as null and void, and
that final selection of the queen
will be made today by student
body members when they mark
their five choices from a ballot of
twelve names.
This action was found necessary
when the University administra
tion declared three of the ten nom
inated ineligible because of failure
to hold a junior certificate.
One Withdraws
Another candidate, Jean Steven
son, also withdrew and this re
duced the field to six girls from
which five were to be chosen.
These six paaraded yesterday noon.
Also considerable condemnation
had been received because of al
leged stuffing of ballot boxes by
ballots clipped from Emeralds not
belonging to the vote casters.
Twelve Now on List
In commenting on this action
Hammond explained, “It seemed to
the committee that it wasn’t quite
fair to expect the queen to be
chosen with only six girls running
for five positions. So we contacted
each sorority and living organiza
tion and requested them to enter a
candidate if they wished. Twelve
groups have given us their choices
and the twelve names will be on
the official ballot tomorrow.
‘“Student body ticket holders
will be the only ones entitled to
vote. Voting will be done at the
College Side from 9 until 3. This
will be the last vote and will be
the official one.
Action Now Final
“We are not running another
primary because of the time ele
ment involved—it is imperative
that the queen be chosen immedi
ately,” Hammond said.
It was also mentioned that the
administration polcy of ineligibil
ity was a reversal of last year's
voting when Mary Morse was al
lowed to be elected, although not
holding a JC. This was the reason
the Junior Weekend committee al
lowed the candidates first chosen
to be considered, Hammond said,
in explaining the sudden announce
ment of the illegal primaries.

Slugsy Wows 'Side’ Audience
On Introductory Tour
Not deigning to accept help
from the reporter, Slugsy Gunn,
wistful little eyeful who hopes to
be called “Queenie” by this time
next week, lightly threw her
trunks onto the seat and nickered
with satisfaction.
“Let’s go!” she cried, and grab
bing her escort by the collar she
lifted him onto the seat behind,
where he sat, sitting, seated. "Un

“Nonsense,” scoffed Slugsy,
playfully poking the reporter in
the eye with her finger. “I want to
ride a bicycle, and making the
rounds at night we don’t have so
much competition.”
“What about light?”
But Slugsy had a flair for show
manship, and the reporter was a
match for anything.
“I’m a siren,” boasted Slugsy,
"The papers all say so. Woooooo!”
The reporter boxed her ears,
three rounds, no-decision, and re
tired to his corner with short pants
and a lollipop.
“Bootiful m o o n u m s makes
meum3 womantical,” crooned
Slugsy, propping her feet up on
the handle-bars complacently.
“That am no moon,” corrected
the reporter. “That’s A1 coming

“I got the soul of a poet,” as

Modern Jazz Rhythms Interest
Pianist George Hopkins
“Jazz is the spice of a program,’’
said George Hopkins, professor of
piano in the school of music, yes
terday, when asked for details
about the concert program he is
giving on May 4 in the school of
music auditorium for the benefit
of the browsing room of the new
“I have even incorporated jazz
rhythms into my own composi
tions,” he added, and said that
among his selections for the pro
gram is “Indian Trail,” the first
number of a group of three com
posed by him, which is probably
more jazzy than primitive. “I have
been interested in experimenting
with modern jazz rhythms in de
veloping these new compositions,”
he said.
He pointed out that just as a sci
entist was not too engrossed in
theories and problems to enjoy be
ing humorous at times, so a mu
sician enjoyed jazz along with
other music. Many beautiful melo
dies have been written by modern
composers, he said. The difference
between them and the more lasting
music is that a modern piece has
only the one melody as its theme,
whereas the composers of lasting
music have elaborated on their
melodies to such an extent that
many themes are incorporated in
one composition.

Frightened Frosh May Cancel
Tug of War Struggle
Editor’s note: Below follows a
story full of hooey of next week’s
scheduled frosh-soph tug-of-war as
hold sophomore Wayne Harbert
sees it. A similar account from
some member of the class of ’8!)
will follow tomorrow.
Grassy banks of the millrace will
be pounded into a sea of clinging
mud by struggling hordes of fresh
men and sophomores a week from
this Saturday morning in the an
nual tug-of-war between the two
classes providing the freshmen
don’t turn green and fail to appear.
The freshmen, greatly outnum
bered for the first time in years,
have been confusedly scampering
abouttthe past few days trying to
organize their forces to meet the
men of the moleskins and confi
dence. |
“I don’t know what we’ll do,"
quavered the voice of Feminine
President June Brown over the
wire last night when asked if the
first-year men were going to give
up the tug-of-war. “Our boys
aren't very strong this year, and
they are so young. They haven’t
been used to being away from their
mothers for such a long time. Why
just yesterday I called some of the
kids and they surprised me with
their lack of spine and spunk!”
she sighed.
Already the sophomores are
making bold preparations. Strong
willed and determined Elizabeth
Turner, head woman in the soph
class, said yesterday that she has
a muscled behemoth in mind who
was organizing the strength of the
