preferred as the choice for presi
dent of the United States over
Sen. Robert A. Tuft (R.-Ohioi and
President Harry S. Truman by a
large majority of 39 Oregon stu
dents polled by the Emerald.
Eisenhower received 69 per cent
of the votes. Taft was second with
14 per cent, and Truman received
11 per cent. 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
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. I '
Campus choice
think he’s got what the people i
want and need in these times of
war. History is faced with war and
we need a military minded man to
.handle the needs of today's VC-opld.” j
Clair Wellman—junior in econ
omics—“Taft, regardless of a lot
of his basic principles 1)£ ,is edu

a lot of other congressmen."

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

E. R. Bingham — instructor of
history--"Eisenhower. It is a pro

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. Whether I would
vote for Truman or Eisenhower
depends on Eisenhower's stand on
domestic issues and how much Eis

conservative wing of the Repubii
