The phone company, Goetzc said, probably knows what is going on in other states.

Results by Fall He said that the investigation would take at least 60 or 90 days, but declared that the proposed survey would definitely be wound up before the start of next fail term. But campus administrative and student officials weren’t too happy about the proposed delay.

Undecided were 6 pei cent of the students. Below are 11 sample opinions ex pressed on the question, "Who do you prefer for president, Taft, Eisenhower or Truman?” Mary Sauccrman freshman in sociology "Taft, but I don't think he’ll get it. I think Eisenhower will get it of the three." Ilia Edwards sophomore in edu cation "Eisenhower, but I think he would have a rough time as he would have to get the supjfbrt of the progressive elements from both parties. I'm fed up with the Tru man administration and Taft is too much of a ‘grand old party man'." •lean Mauro sophomore in lib eral arts "It’s between Taft and Eisenhower. I think either would make a good president.” Mel Streeter senior in architec ture "Eisenhower, naturally. I don't like Taft's ideas of isolation ism and Truman's wasteful gov ernment." Mary Lou Elliott sophomore in English "Eisenhower he's a gen eral and a leader of the army and I think he would do well as leader of his country.” Dick Burch freshman in jour nalism “Truman, because he rep resents the democratic principles of our country and he's honest e ven if his help isn't." Bill Whitlock—freshman in lib- | rial arts "Probably Eisenhower. I don't care for Truman." Jean Nielson -freshman in busi- ( ness "It would’t be Truman. It I would be a tosa-up between Taft and Eisenhower, and Eisenhower would probably get it.” Norma Terry—junior in liberal > arts — "Eisenhower definitely.

Eis enhower and President Harry Tru man—all of whom are currently being considered as presidential candidates in the 1952 race. Four favored Eisenhower. Two suggested that they would vote for Eisenhower (or Taft in one case) under certain conditions. W. S. Haldinger—associate pro fessor of art — “Eisenhower, be cause he is more international minded, he has a respect for the world that the others don't, and I feel that there would be less chance of our ship of state sinking with him at the head of the gov ernment.” E. R. Bingham — instructor of history--"Eisenhower. It is a pro cess of elimination and I wouldn't vote for Taft or Truman. The coun try needs someone in which the people have confidence.” D. M. Dougherty-—head of the foreign language department "I don't care for Taft's isolationism. I believe that Eisenhower is the best man.” C. P. Schleicher professor of political science "I would defi nitely not vote for Taft under any circumstances.

Eisenhower is the favorite among college stu dents for the next President Of i the United States, according to a poll recently conducted by the Associated Collegiate press. Sen. Robert Taft is more popular among college students than Tru man the poll showed, but about one fourth of those interviewed hadn't made up their minds yet. Students at schools in every sec tion of the country favored Eisen hower, but in the Taft vs. Truman argument, the results show certain sectional differences. Taft is the strongest in the Mid west. A school in Indiana and an other in Iowa are 75 per cent for Taft. 14 per cent for Truman, but students in Ohio, Taft’s home state are less in favor of him than the. students in other parts of the country. Truman is strongest in the Far West. In the South, the vote for Truman and Taft is about even. At the University of California, the strongest Truman school, Tru man attracted 43 per cent of the votes while Taft polled 21 per cent. Eisenhower proved to be an overwhelming favorite when stu dents were asked who they would vote for if Truman ran against Eisenhower. Eisenhower polled 71 per cent of the votes against lt» per cent for Truman. Truman also lost to Taft in the final results of the poll. Taft re cieved 46 per cent of the votes against 29 per cent for the Presi dent. In a recent public-opinion poll in Portland. Eisenhower was the top choice among Republicans and Democrats. A total of 31 per cent of the interviewed citizens indi cated a preference for the former Allied supreme commander in west ern Europe.
