Poll Reveals Dime Card Popularity By JEAN SPEAROW Rising- sentiment on the campus regarding class cards has led to endless committee meetings and sky-rocketing aspirin sales. So to day we conduct a symposium of campus opinion on class cards in general and the new plan set forth by the resolutions committee in particular. This proposed new plan would mean that the classes would de pend for revenue upon a 10 cent class card. If bought within five days after registration, this card would entitle the holder to voting privileges. Cards bought after this five-day period would carry with them the right to enter activities but would be punched void for vot ing. The question asked the follow-1 ing people was phrased, “What do you think of class cards?” Lowell Dick: “I bought one when I was a sophomore. What’3 more, I still have it, if you want the evi dence of what a sucker I was.” Elizabeth Steed: “I’ve had one sitting on my mirror gathering dust for a month. I wish someone would tell me what you do with it.” Favors Dime Tiger Payne: "I’m for the 10 cent class card, and I think it's the noblest step taken by any class in a long time. It isn’t Utopia but we must sacrifice some principle to that, of raising revenue. This way it’ll get more people interested in activities.” Norm Foster: “Class cards are a stupid idea. Charging 10 cents doesn’t make it any cleverer than charging 50 cents.” Marge Clear: ‘‘If the cards are only 10 cents, the blocks can pur chase more votes cheaper . . . the first five days.” Bob Whitely: ‘‘If you’re going to have class cards, what’s the differ ence between 10 cents and 50 cents? All you get out of them is the right to vote. You might as well get rid of them.” Connie Averill: ‘‘Ten cent class cards with just the voting privdege attached won’t sell. No one’s in terested in voting. It’s too darned political.” SiUy Idea Bob Flavelle: ‘‘It’s silly to spend 10 cents for them if you’re kicking about 50 cents. You haven’t gained anything.” Stan Staiger: “I’m FOE elans cards, but I don’t think this 10 cent plan will solve the problem.” Steve Worth: “I think that what the resolutions committee did was no compromise at all. It’s the poll tax that people object to.” Tommy Mayes: “The idea was to eliminate class cards. You don’t gain anything by lowering the price.” Free to All Ridge Cummings: “Class cards should be free.” Jim Bailey: “I had one once, but I never got anything out of it. My dance wasn’t held that term and neither was the voting. I haven’t bought one since.” Nancy Lewis: “If it’s those 10 cent deals you’re talking about, I don’t think much of them.” Seven Candidates Apply for Position Hodges, Hirsh, Russell, Salinardo, Broderick, Wright, and Osterloh Aspire; Cavanagh Reports on Union By JEAN SPE A ROW Election of the new University yell king will take place at the 11 o'clock assembly in Gerlinger today.

Dr. Noble to Speak On Oriental War Professor to Base Talk on Own Life Among Japanese Dr. H. J. Noble, associate pro fessor of history at the University, will use information based on his life spent in the Orient to make up the text of his coming lecture on “War and the Japanese People," tonight at 7:30 in Alumni room at Gerlinger hall. The talk will show the effect that four years of war has had on the Japanese people. “One of the most striking changes brought about by the war,” Dr. Noble de clared in an interview, “is the dull and drab robes that the women wear. It is now against the law for them to appear in the bright and colorful robes that were so typical of the Japanese race. “Japanese students have all been exempt from any active service in the army until they are 25,” the associate professor announced. "In this way the intellect of the coun try will not vanish.” Dr. Noble spent the greater part of his life in the Orient. He stud ied and taught at the Government Imperial college at Tokyo for sev eral years. The lecture is a benefit to aid Chinese students who are suffering because of the war.
