Pass Mundt-Nixon
With Heavy Vote
—The House today passed by a
topheavy vote the Mundt-Nixon
bill giving American Communist
leaders the choice of breaking ties
with Moscow or going to jail.
The final roll call vote was 319
to 58. It came after the house had
shouted down all attempts to
weaken the measure or to kill it
by sending it back to the unAm
erican activities committee
Voting for the bill were 215 Rep
ublicans and 104 Democrats. Op
posed were eight Republicans, 48
Democrats, and two American
Labor party members.
Restrictions rmposed
The bill, which now goes to the
Senate, would surround the U.S.
Communist party and its “front”
organizations with some of the
sternest restrictions ever imposed
on a political group in this nation's
history. ,
It was denounced, during four
days of torrid floor debate, by a
hopelessly outnumbered group of
critics who charged that it is un
constitutional, that it will lead to
“thought control,” and that it will
undermine the individual liberties
of all Americans.
It was supported, with equal
vigor, by Republican and Demo
cratic congressmen who aserted
the act is a carefully-drawn and
badly-needed supplement to the
government's legal arsenal against
communist subversion.

At Meeting
Allen, Henderson,
Rasmussen Named
As No. 1 Aspirants
ASA, ISA, and USA candidates
for ASUO number one and two,
executive council, and class posi
tions were nominated last night in
McArthur court before a crowd of
about 000 students. Stan William
son, ASUO president, was chair
man of the meeting.
First candidate to speak was Bob
Allen, USA, who declared he was
“carrying the fight against irre
sponsible pressure groups to the
student body.”
“The philosophy of our party,”
the USA number one candidate
said, “calls for the individual to be
come active in student affairs. If
we students are to gain and main
tain a position of real importance
in the administration and control
of student affairs, we must active
ly demonstrate that we are indi
vidually and collectively responsi
ble people.”
Miller Explains USA
Allen was introduced by Warren
Miller, president of USA, who in
formed the audience just what USA
is, and “what it is not.” It is not
a party of disgruntled office seek
ers, he contended, nor is it an or
ganization of Greeks who hope to
split the independents, or indepen
dents who wish to split the Greeks.
Platform of USA includes abolish
ment of social lines in politics, di
vorcement of student affairs from
faculty control, and an incorporat
ed student body.
Direct Primaries Is a Plank
Introduced by Jeanne Nunn as a
candidate who “stands for what he
believes is right,” was the ISA can
didate for number one ASUO po
sition, Bob Henderson.
Open, direct primaries was the
main plank of Henderson’s plat
form. With such a system he hopes
to bring the selection of candidates
down to the individuals and away
from machine politics.
“The nearly 1000 off-campus stu
dents, and the minority voices in
the houses,” Henderson declared,
“as well as those students living on
the campus and the majority voice
