Johnson's Lucky Week. ..
Night Rally Only Interruption
Throughout Quiet Election Day
A quiet election day promised to end with at least a pop or two as
scores of students gathered in front of the Side last night for an "Art
Johnson” rally. They were heading north with much noise as this story
was being written.
The new SB president, first independent elected to the position since
1937, had spent the earlier part of the evening walking in the drizzle
with Ann Case, junior class number three victor.
This is Johnson’s lucky week from all evidence—at the Phi Delt
raffle Tuesday he won Marv Rasmussen’s car. Johnson says he will
sell the car and send the proceeds to Marv who is in the hospital.
Little election day unpleasantness was reported to the Emerald.
Two persons were refused food by a party-spirited waiter in one of
the campus bistros until they declared that they had voted for his can
didate, but such incidents seemed few and far between.
It’s rumored that several infirmary patients were released in the
afternoon to cast their ballots.
It’s more than rumor, though, that yesterday’s election was one of
the most quiet in recent years. Election day 1949 was characterized by
just a little bickering, just « little muttering, and scattered showers.
No Transcript Needed;
Picnic Easy to Crash
Everybody’s a sophomore.
At least, for purposes of going to the sophomore picnic this
coming Saturday afternoon at Swimmers’ Delight, anybody can
become either a sophomore or a “semi-sophomore.”
Here’s how Herb Mill, sophomore class president, explains it:
Ihe affair, first official camp
us picnic in recent University
history, is listed as “semi-soph
omore." This can be interpreted
to include practically everyone.
If you’re a sophomore in hours or
through not having a J. C., there’s
no restriction at all—it’s no-date or
date, either way. It’s been suggest
ed as a good time for women stud
ents to go “stag.”
If you’re a freshman, junior, or
senior, here’s the first method:
Phone a sophomore and ask him or
her to take you—games, dancing,
and refreshments are on the slate.
Hours are 1 to 5, and admission fif
ty cents per head.
Second method, if you’re not a
sophomore and know not a single
member of that class, it's going
to be practically a cinch to misrep
resent the facts and get in, says
So don’t bring your transcript,
don’t bring your student body card
—just bring yourself and fifty
cents and be a soph for an after
Tickets will be on sale at the Co
op through the rest of the week, as
well as through representatives in
living organizations and at Swim
mers’ Delight Saturday.
Stars in 'Good Shape'
Law-BA to Tangle in Softball Battle
By Ken Metzler6
When big business tangles with
the law what happens?
The answer to this question is
uncertain but when the law school
tangles with the business school
on the field of honor (lower Howe
field) Saturdays at approximately
2:45 p.m. anything can and doubt
less will happen.
It’s the annual law-business feud
-—a softball game immediately fol
lowing the law school weekend pa
rade. Both teams are raring to go,
according to their respective cap
tains, who both claim their teams
have annexed all past games. Bob
Hollis will lead the legal men; and
’-ving Anderson will captain the
Starting pitchers will be Dovy Jo
'arlos for the lawyers and Don
.instedt for the business men.
Linstedt, famous for his bewil
dering knuckle balls and curves is
expected to close all loopholes for
the BA men. Miss Carlos, not bad
on curves herself, will keep morale
high for the legal men.
Hollis, in commenting on the
strength of his law team, said:
“We are out to repeat the 33-0
drubbing we gave them last year.
Daily pepper sessions are being
held in the back booth at Max’s.
“We are rapidly coming to shape
—perhaps the best shape of all is
Dovy Jo ‘Blooper-ball’ Carlos,
mainstay of the mound staff. Mo
rale is very high. Our Gracious
Majesty, Queen Avery I, is arrang
ing to have us infused with un
quenchable spirit at the game.’’
Anderson, of the BA team
“Tell the law school they had
j better use the one or two women
they have as incentive to play bet -
ter ball. We’ve taken out all the
typewriters and adding machines
and have been having night prac
tice in the basement of Commerce
These tentative lineups were an

Last Year's Figure
Art Johnson took ASUO presidency yesterday by a 438 margin over
second place winner Ed Anderson, with his running mate Lou Weston
edging into third spot with 97 more votes than fourth placer, Joanne
While the top two ASUO offices were won by the USA, the AGS
carried all the classy, yell king, and two out of three co-op boarders.

1174, Weston, 861; and Frydenlund, 764. Seventeen ballots were invalid.

First Independent President Since '37
Art Johnson, elected at the polls yesterday yesterday, is the first
non-fraternity man to be elected president of the student body since
1937 when Barney Hall was selected for the post.
A look at past Emerald filed indicates similar circumstances sur
rounding the 1937 campaign. Hall, who introduced the, preferential
ballot system now used on the campus, was the lone independent to
secure a post. He is now a practicing physician in Portland.
The independent candidate previous to Hall to capture the student
body president position was Claude Robinson in 1923.
USA Ron Phillips’ 159. AGS Marguerite Johns took third place over
Jeannine Macaulay, USA, 139 to 120.
Junior class president is Barry Mountain, AGS, who beat Ed Peter
son 441 to 356. Ann Case, AGS, won 351 votes to USA Anne Goodman’s
AGS Dick McLaughlin was elected sophomore president with 388
votes. USA candidate Lloyd Neal took second place with 236 ballots.
Third placer was AGS Mary Hall, 298, over USA Pat Mullen, 206.
The USA conceded AGS Jim Crisman’s election as yell king over USA

Young Ting's Sand-Ling Stars
In 'Marco Millions’ Spectacle
* * * * * *
Doree Brownlee, Princess Kukachin in “Marco Millions” poses with
Ting, a white Pekingese. So far, advance publicity hasn't gone to
Ting’s head, so she couldn’t be called a “publicity hound.”
It isn’t every actress who gets
a starring role when she’s only
eleven months old—but that’s just
what Ting's Sand-Ling, dainty
white Pekingese, has accomplished
Ting's, better known as “Sandy"
to her owner, Mrs. Evelyn Bennett
of Eugene, is taking part in the
University theater spectacle pro
duction, “Marco Millions,” which
will be presented in McArthur
court Saturday, April 30.
Her big moment in the oriental
extravaganza about Marco Polo’s
| journey to the court of Kublai
i Kaan comes when Polo presents
, her, as a “token of his esteem,” to
the Kublai’s granddaughter, Prin
cess Kukachin. Kukachin, por
trayed by Doree Brownlee, receives
the gift very happily, and Ting’s
remains on the stage during the
rest of the scene while the princess
plays with her.
Having the distinction of being
the only dog in the cast of nearly
one hundred hasn’t gone to Ting’s
head at all. Even seeing her name
on the “Marco MSllions” program
and her individual portrait dis
played prominently outside the box
office in Johnson hall hasn’t in
spired a single canine comment.
No one could ever call Ting’s a,
