Therefore. the obvious solution is to make sure that Germany does not get the upper hand. “In an attempt to achieve that end the Wampus is sponsoring the formation of a society to be known as The Loyal and Gullible Purveyors of Anglo-Ssxonic Optimism. We expect not only the whole SC student body but the entire thinking population of the country to rush to join the LGPASO,” Goodman said. Politics will not be the only feature of the March issue of the Wampus. Also to be featured is a four-page series of pictures of the new sorority pledges, Goodman said. Included with these pictures will be charts indicating the girls’ hobbfes, ambitions, preferences in men. and the like. Election Proposal Changed Senate Plans Direct Supervision of Polls, Balloting Procedure In a marathon meeting the ASSC senate last night drastically changed a proposed elections procedure by-law. A suggested four-member board of elections was cut from the act and the senate placed in Ks own hands the power to supervise student body elections. A clause limiting campaign literature to post cards and advertisements in the Daily Trojan was placed in the proposed by-law. and the number of open campaign meetings was changed from three to two. FINAL VOTE TABLED Final vote on the measure was tabled until a special meeting next Tuesday night. Proposed by Edward Jones, the original revision of the by-law would have set up an elections board of four members headed by the commissioner of elections. Attacking the proposal on the ground that it places too much power in the hands of a few persons several senate members argued that the entire senate should supervise the elections instead of delegating the duty to a four-man board. MEASURE DISCUSSED Discussing the proposed measure, Al Gifford, commissioner of elections, said. ‘'I personally do not think the four-man board is necessary for proper conduct of the elections. The power should be in the hands of the senate.” Following a heated debate on the point, it was agreed that the entire membership of the executive body should compose the elections board to assist in conducting elections, and that the senate itself would appoint such deputy commissioners as the body deems necessary. EXPENDITURES RAISED The senate also included in the proposed by-law a change in the limitation of campaign expenditures. While the limit of expenditures of candidates for ASSC president remains at S75, the amount allowed Continued on Page Four Radio To Feature Larsen Interview Rolf Larsen.
