Dewey Edges Stassen in Survey
Eugene voters favor Thomas E.
Dewey by a slight margin over
Harold Stassen in the current race
for the Republican presidential
This was the conclusion shown in
a random telephone survey con
■ ducted early this week in the Eu
gene city area. A total of 234 per
* sons were quizzed by the poll, per
sons selected because their names
appeared among the first five list
ed in the upper right-hand pages
of the telephone directory.
Republicans Contacted
Of the 154 Republican voters
contacted by the survey team, 67
said they would vote for Candidate
Dewey, while 65 spoke for Stas
sen. Twenty-two others said they
were undecided.
In the Oregon governor's race,
91 of the Republicans indicated
■**, they would vote for Hall, the pres
ent governor, 15 others favored
McKay, and 5 said they would sup

received not a single supporting
vote from those polled, but 43 per
sons admitted they are still unde
Newbry Supported
Present secretary of state New
bry received overwhelming support
for his renomination according to
poll results. Candidate Newbry re
ceived 85 supporting ballots in the
survey, while his opponent, Flagg,
won only 9. Sixty other Republican
voters said they are still undecided
between the two.
In the only question where Dem
ocratic and Republican votes fig
ured alike, the Lane county plan for
a county manager was defeated by
a narrow margin of 3 votes. Sev
enty persons contacted, including
voters of both parties, were against
the plan, while 67 spoke in favor of
it. The issue could still be decided I
either way, however, as 97 others
have not yet made up their minds
as to which side to support.
Every effort was made to keep
the questions that were asked on
an impartial tone, and the prepared
list was examined and approved by
Warren C. Price of the University
school of journalism. The survey
team was composed of Art Wah
lers, Annie Bennett, Sam McKin
ney, A1 Thomas, Sallie Timmens,
Larry Lau, Connie Kamm, Lloyd
Kinsey, and Roscoe Hurst.

were men and 164 were women.
These gave their party preferences
as 22 male Democrats and 58 fe
male Democrats, and 48 male Re
publicans and 106 female Republi
can voters. The survey team cov

Only Chance
Bob Allen, PNCC representative,
emphasized that this is the only
chance for University students as
a group to express their views and
make positive suggestions on
America’s conduct of her share of
international relations.
The two Pacific Northwest
college congress representatives
who will be presented to the Unit
ed Nations organization as official
PNCC delegates this summer will
be armed with the results of Paci
fic-northwest collegiate voting.
They will appear as representa
tives of over 70,000 potential voters
and political leaders, and in that
capacity will carry a great deal of
political weight with United Na
tions officials.
Report Kmphasiy.es
A report given by one of last
year’s PNCC United Nations dele
gates to the PNCC group in their
moeting at Whitman last term,
emphasized the rather surprising
respect with which their statement
of collegiate views was received:
In discussing the political power
wielded by college students repre
sented at the PNCC, Allen pointed
out that it is the duty and respon
sibility of all students to make an
intelligent expression of their opin
ions via the PNCC resolutions. Al
len concluded “If they don't vote,
and then the action taken by the
United Nations and the American
congress meets with their disap
proval, they have only themselves
to criticize because of their laxity
in expressing their opinions.
“The best informed voters in the
nation are probably college stu
dents; and their whole-hearted par
ticipation is due both their nation
and themselves. University of Ore
gon students should realize this re
sponsibility, accept it, and vote on
the PNCC resolutions.”
Members of Kwama and Phi
Theta Upsilon are assisting with
the balloting.

of arrangements for the presiden
tial hopeful's visit to the Univer

Wants Delegates

The Oregon primary on May 21
will be tlie first contest between
the two in which both men have
actively campaigned.
