ing for senate at large indicated
a preference on their ballots for

voters voted for had already been
elected or eliminated, and there
O'Reilly Strips Secretary...
OF POWERS FOR LAW WEEKEND
COUNTY of FENTON. State of
Hollis (Special (—It’s free drinks
and cigars for all residents of
Fenton (candy for the ladies),
courtesy of Ed O'Reilly.
At the big Wednesday election,
O’Reilly was selected to succeed
Jim Hafey as president of the law
school student body, and immedi
ately assumed the responsibilities
and burdens of this highest office
His first acts as president were
to strip Law School Secretary
Miss Corinne Gunderson of her
powers and control of Fenton
funds, and to demand that im
peachment proceedings be com
menced against Athletic Chairman
The election result was an
nounced within minutes after the
•close of the polls at 3 p.m. O’Reilly
wound up with 29 votes, 7 more
than his closest rival Dale Peder
son, who had 22, and 9 more than
the third candidate, Ken Poole,
with 20. The rumored “write-in”
campaign by the feminine law stu
dents didn't materialize, but "Snow
belle,” (the Phi Kappa Psi’s Bern
ard), and the custodian of Fenton
Hall both received student support
on the ballots.
Like all political aspirants,
O'Reilly has planned to "reward"
his followers of Fenton, and with
Law School Weekend starting Fri
day, the subjects immediately took
him up on his offer.
The new president said he had
concluded that Miss Gunderson is
unable to give her wholehearted
support to official law school poli
cies. In a statement, O’Reilly as
serted that "feminine secretaries
must bo governed by policies and
directives of their superiors. When
the ladies attempt to formulate
Fenton policy, instead of being
satisfied with performing the min
isterial functions of the office of
secretary, a change is necessary."
It is reported that, in spite of
her being ousted from command,
Miss Gunderson’s home town of
Pendleton is planning a big recep
tion and parade in her honor on
her return in June.
Rose's position is being'threaten
ed beeause of his failure to main
tain the standards required of one

Under Rose’s guidance, the
"I.egal Eagles” won two softball
games in a row. an unheard-of feat
for Fenton teams, and strictly
"We cannot allow such neglect
of duty and incompetency to go
by unnoticed,” O'Reilly stated,
ordering John Sabine, his man
"Friday,” to see that Rose is re
lieved of his duties before fall term.
With the election over, all eyes
of Fenton are being turned to the
weekend festivities, which will be
culminated by the Law School
Ball to be held Saturday night at
the Student Union, at which time
the “queen” will be announced.

Two Few Candidates
2. The United Students Associa
tion may have made a mistake in
not nominating more candidates
for senator-at-large. As the ballots
were distributed, the candidates
with the lowest number of votes
were declared defeated, and their
votes given to other candidates
voted for on the ballot.
Therefore, both parties lost can
didates along the way; but AGS,
with 11 candidates running, could
afford to have more dropped off
than could USA, which only nom
inated six. These figures include
the presidential candidates.
The campaigning was conduct
ed in a very clean fashion this
year. There were no riots, no
charges and counter-charges of
corruption and dishonestity—vent

in favor of reinstatement of the

by an estimated 200 students.
“I’ve got a committee going and
I’ve got backing. What I’m look

Peterson told the Emerald. He said
he has outside legal advice on the
course of action he is pursuing.
Peterson feels the two athletes
involved were not given a fair heal

the committee has no jurisdiction
