The need for fair and equal representation of all groups on campus is essential, and the time is ripe to create an organization that will work at all times .toward those ends. The student body president is in the key position. If I am electcd, that will be my program.” . - VOTE TODAY ----- r. Levine: hat are you doing r a fair election? That was the question and here’s his answer: “Every voter must present his ASSC identification card an election official, who will inspect it to see if it is the ond semester card, 1942-43 (color yellow), and if it is ed by the holder, with the school or college entry made, class, and if it bears the stamp he comptroller.

The signa-on the identification card will checked against the name on list’* ture sheets were locked in Mr. Eddy’s safe. He retains the only key to the ballot boxes. Although Levine asserts that he has taken every precaution necessary in the way of appointing honest and competent election officials and in election procedure, he declares that vigilance on the part of voters will prevent malpractices. Elections rules provide for sig-ture sheets and numbered baits. Senate members have the ht to inspect these for verifi-tion. Because ballots can be ,ntified, it is not a secret elec-ion. Levine suggests that the tte take prompt action to reefy this, and substitute some oth-c heck ing device. To insure that the voter can cast 3s ballot without interferences, Le-ne said that the polling area will kept clear 10 feet on all sides. ro students will be permitted to uence voters from a distance than a radius of 50 feet of the 'ng area,” he added. “So, all paigning must be done away the polls.’* fter the polls close at 3:30 the extra ballots and sig-. re lists will be stuffed into boxes and the slot sealed with Two election officials will their names across the tape vent tampering. •"This seal Is not broken until ail es are in Arnold Eddy’s office, eupon each box is opened one a time, and the votes tallied by ate members.

Editorial The choice is yours • With Monday morning’s dawn will come serenity. The light of that post-election day will seek out and dispel the shadows of infantile intrigue that darken people’s minds today. Brought out of the shadows, many of today’s events will be reduced to their proper absurdity. As this is being written there are rumors that today’s Daily Trojan will never reach your eyes. Reading it, you must agree that these rumors, and the reasons for them, were absurd. Or perhaps, if you aren’t reading this, our labor is absurd. Tradition has it that SC politics are tightly held in the hands of a political machine. Textbooks from which we have lapped our ideas for 14 years have it that this is wrong. Is it? Some weeks ago the Daily Trojan learned of a student who knew many of the “secrets” of The Machine. Long exposed to the theory that a voter should know as much as possible about those he is voting for, we decided that a column written by this man would be an asset to intelligent voters. Were we wrong? We are satisfied that Daily Trojan efforts to stay in good taste, to practice ethical journalism in avoiding mud-slinging and petty feuds, have been successful. Charges of partisanship on the part of our political columnist are a natural phenomenon, impossible to completely avoid. Facts uncovered by the columnist should have given the SC voter something to think about. Trojans are in the perplexing position of having to choose between two candidates for the ASSC presidency who are both backed by political machines. One machine is justified as “a political fraternity whose members represent nearly every house on campus, trying earnestly to select a candidate whose qualifications make him the person to represent our student body.” The other machine maintains that its organization is the only means by which Machine No. 1 can be beaten. We wish we could paint the picture in its proper li^ht, highlighting the humor it contains and showing the candidates as the good fellows they both are. Established political tactics and feelings make this impossible. It is amusing that we waited until the year that student government and activities are cut to the minimum before bringing politics out into the light of day. :// m CANDIDATE WILLIAMS says “Every Trojan of this student body must exercise today the privilege and duty of voting. You have had a chance this week to compare candidates, and also to listen to and read arguments. I am sure your choice will be wise. I sincerely desire to serve the students of our university, and I ask your support in this campaign. I leave my chance to serve you in your hands.” - VOTE TODAY - Climaxing a week of curtailed war-time campaigning, SC’s annual ASSC election will take place today with balloting beginning at. 8:30 a.m. The polls, stationed at eight strategic points on the campus, will remain open until 3:30 p.m. Topping the slate of candidates seeking offices are the two presidential aspirants,. Bill Caldwell and Jack Williams. In the race for the vice-presidency, Leta Galentine will face Lynn Norby, The secretarial post will be contested by Claire Laub and Dorothy Smith. For the assistant yell leader position, Chuck McKenzie is being opposed by Lester Vlahos. Because no one was eligible, the head cheer leader’s job will remain vacant. Running unopposed for the presidency of the College of Commerce is Mickey Heeger, current junior class head. Heeger is affiliated with Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity, is a member of the Trojan Knights, and wa» acting president of the sophomore class last year. In the race for president of tht College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences, Bennett W. Priest, NROTC cadet officer, is running without opposition.
