Election Aftermath
gTUDEXT elections on this campus are us
ually run off uneventfully according: to
pretty much a mechanical process, without
much chance of deviation from the ordinary.
Regardless of what may happen before
election time—whether vote buying, political
horse trading, or other devious but standard
practices—there is not much which can hap
pen at ihe election itself.
Voters may find themselves dragged out of
their easy chairs and hauled to the polls, but
once there they have been on their own, for
the election system is regular. Ballots are
doled out and carefully accounted for. Mem
bers of all parties hang around to watch the
proceedings for the first sign of anything out
of order.
=55= & *
■^^TIEN votes themselves come to the count
ing stage it is a balanced board which
does the counting and tallying. Members of
both or all *parties, ASUO officials, and edu
cational activities personnel work together to
establish the results, and so carefully is every
thing accounted for in the tallying that there
is not the slightest possibility of trickery.
In Thursday’s election, however, an added
feature was instituted at the polls, and therein
lies the resulting question over the election.
Men of both parties stayed at the polls and
checked the number of ballots and voters
going through the mill, for the purpose of
gauging the progress of the election appar
ently. .Just how systematically these checkers
did their job is not known, but at any rate the
final score at the end of the counting at the
activities office did not tally with what the
checkers had. The immediate result was a
general44how come ?'’
AT mid-morning yesterday the judiciary
committee had not yet been approached
to settle the problem, which could mean that
tin' possibility for an immediate settlement is
remote in view of the lateness in the week and
the large amount of work already piled on
Orlando John Hollis, acting dean of the law
school and thus head of the judiciary com
The task before the committee is an un
enviable one. Tt will have to decide whether
the time of election makes any difference—
for the sophomores missed their constitutional
date by at least a week. Whether the unofficial
checkers at the polls did a thorough job will
be another consideration, and finally the
status of the present electees, whose margin
of victory was greater than the difference be
tween unofficial and official totals.
* # #
JT would seem at first glance that if there is
error, it must have been at the polls, for
counting boards are notoriously strict, and
this one was handled by competent people.
Not to be forgotten, however, in the midst
of the smudge set up by political charcoal
burners, is that the decision is up to the judi
ciary committee. They alone will find out and
determine whether there is any fire to go
with the smoke. They should do this soon, but
if they cannot it will have to wait.
Hut beneath all the immediate considera
tions relative to the specific case in point,
namely Thursday’s election, there lies the
basic consideration. It is regrettable to say
the least when it is not possible to run off an
ordinary class election without difficulty.
Hold Tight Girls Do Tuxedo
Up until the last few weeks the
now famous "Tuxedo Junction”
has been riding to fame on its
musical merits only. Then some
body wrote a set of lyrics and
the Andrews Sisters snapped
them up. They’ve made a Decca
record of the whole works which
really jumps. Of course it isn’t
as good as Glenn Miller’s record
ing, but it’s still very interesting
to hear all about the famous ne
gro train junction from which
the song derived its name. . . .
On the other side of this disc is
a new number called Rhumbogie.”
It sound just like the title, what
ever that means.
The Merry Macs, top swing
quartet of the country, also do
some heretofore undone vocalizing
on Larry Clinton's "Johnson
Rag.” They also turn out some

“Remember," a couple of very
popular standbys.
Kemp Superstitions
Maestro Hal Kemp has an
aversion against seeing his name
alongside the monicker of the
old music masters. Hal is cur
rently featuring a special ar
rangement of Richard Wagner's
“Evening Star” from Tannhauser.
On the title page of the modern
version it reads "by Richard Wag
ner and Martha Stephenson,” the
latter being Mrs. Kemp’s maiden
name. Hal thought it was a
unique idea to keep the credit for
the arrangement in the family
without holding himself or Mrs.
Kemp up as an equal of the great
Ain’t It the Truth ?—
Quizzes Phooey
When the radio business finds
a good thing it's bound and de
termined to push it and push it
until everybody is sick and tired
of the whole idea. Believe it or
not, there are four new quiz
shows scheduled for radio release
in the very near future. These in
clude a literature quiz and a
sports quiz, and two quizzes that
can t be described with just one
word. . . . One of these is called
“Take It or Leave It.” It's one of
the best quizzes to come on the
air in many a moon. Here’s the
idea: the contestant starts with
nothing; he is asked a question
ansi ,i( US 9ijswfrs.it correctly $1
is the reward; but if he doesn't
war.t to accept the dollar, he has
the option of trying- to answer a.
question for $2 instead. From
here on the suspense is terrific.
If he doesn't want to accept the
S2, he can try for four, and so
on until the pot hits 64 silver
shekels on the seventh question.
Any time a question is missed,
all is lost. Sounds like fun!
