To secure a ballot, a veteran need only present his student body identification card. The activity book will not be required. AMAZONS OFFICIATE In the event that the veteran’s identification card is not stamped GL Rehab, or State, he will be required to present a copy of his discharge together with the identification card.

Signatures on the identification cards will be compared with those made at the table to preclude duplication of votes. DENTAL STUDENTS VOTE Dental students at the downtown clinic will vote tomorrow afternoon, according to Kotler. “It is important that candidates understand that no electioneering may take place within 50 feet of the polling area," Kotler explained, “and no candidate or his campaign manager may authorize the use of any printed material other than the advertisement which each candidate is permitted to run in the Daily Trojan.” Results of the election will be released at a senate meeting Thursday night. rty to Honor Dames Club oring members of the SC club, Dr. Mary Sinclair 7ford, professor of old -French, give a Christmas tea Dec. 15 3 to 6 p.m. at the Delta Del-Delta sorority house, ie Dames club is a national or-ization for wives of students.

No one should exit from the front door, which will be used only for entrances. 4. Tlie rear door of Bridge hall should be used only by faculty members going to and from their parking lot.

Russ Request Data On A-Bomb Stockpile In Return for Census U N ASSEMBLY HALL, FLUSHING, N.Y., Dec. 10 — (UP)—Contending that vast armies are “a threat to the peace of the world” the United States tonight demanded that Russia stop procrastinating and reveal to the United Nations how many millions of men she has under arms. Sen. Tom Connally. D.. Tex., in a thundering speech to the United Nations general assembly, rejected Russian demands that the U.S. reveal the size of her atomic bomb stockpile in exchange for a census of the Soviet army. AMERICAN DEMAND Connally repeated the American demand that all nations publish the size and location of their armed forces both at home and abroad, a demand already approved by the UN political and security committee and now on the floor of the assembly for final action. He asked an accounting of “the vast land armies of soldiers with guns in their hands and the reserves ready to rush to the colors when the bugles blow.” “These are the threats to the peace of the world,” the white haired senator said. DELAYING ACTION Disputing the statement of Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov that the western powers were trying to delay a census of their forces abroad, Connally said: “The only procrastination we know Ibout is not for a day, not for a week, not for a month but forever—that's the kind of procrastination the Soviets have been giving us on reporting on their troops at home.” “We have no skeletons in our closets,” he said, emphasizing the willingness of the U.S. to tell how many troops it has anywhere in the world. ANSWER TO MOLOTOV Connally’s speech was the answer to Soviet Foreign Minister V. M. Molotov who in the early moming hours Monday told the assembly that the troop census resolution as passed by the committee was “unacceptable” to Russia. Molotov said that the accounting should also include a listing of all armaments, including atom bombs and rocket weapons if it is going to include home forces. It was the same fight that had gone on in the committee being battled out all over again on the assembly floor. In committee, Russia had tried to ring in the armament accounting as an amendment to the resolution. When defeated she voted against the resolution. m Constitution Framers Revise Senate Seats Group Ratifies Parts of Draft In Preparation AL REID new president Reid Replaces Burton As Blue Key President Blue Key members last night elected Al Reid, Delta Tau Delta, to serve as president of next semester, replacing Phil Burton, who will be graduated in January.

A member of the local chapter of life underwriters, he taught at SC before the war and attended school under the S.S. Huebner Foundation for Insurance Education fellowship.

He, (Continued on Page Four) As the result the Big Four for eign ministers wrote into the proposed Trieste statute a specific prohibition against exclusive or preferential economic agreements between Trieste and any country. A customs union between Trieste and Yugoslavia would have given Marshal Tito important exclusive concessions and would have helped him to dominate the port which, it is hoped, will serve a large area of central Europe. The foreign ministers agreed also on most points of a free port in Trieste and decided to organize all member supervisory port commission including the Big Four, Italy, Yugoslavia. Switzerland, Austria. Hungary. Czechoslovakia and Poland. Molotov tried vainly to get Albania, Romania and the Ukraine added. As a result of their agreements, the foreign ministers decided to send to the United Nations Security Council Friday a draft letter outlining the provisions for Trieste. These include the statute which is to govern the administration of the zone, the instrument for a free port, and agreements for a provisional government. Molotov opposed letting commercial and private planes land in the Trieste zone for fuelling and repairs. He said, especially of private planes, that he didn't want them in the area and that if they were in distress they oould land elsewhere. Beceda to Hold Initial Meeting The Russian club has organized a conversational branch known as the Beceda for students of the Slavic studies department.

Caldwell, lecturer in history, who is in charge of the committee of judges for the competition. “The premium will be on the ability to think on your feet and organize your thoughts quickly. Naturally, the subject matter will be based upon the students’ own views.” Tau Kappa Alpha emphasizes the fact that this competition is open to all undergraduates on campus and is not restricted to speech majors. Students who are interested may sign up for the contest on the secretary’s desk in the speech office. Old College; on the debate squad bulletin board. 405 Student Union, or on the bulletin board in the Law building. Dsadline for the signup is Monday afternoon, but entrants are asked to sign up earlier if possible. Iran Forces Launch Attack Against Azerbaijan Citadel Three new developments in the now 2-month-old task of writing a new student body constitution are apparent today following approval by the constitutional committee o f portions of a rough draft presented by Alf Harrison, chairman. Still to be submitted to test on the floor of the ASSC senate, the new measures, if passed, would find the senate holding the power of decision as to the number of legislators apportioned to each college under proportional representation, eliminate the College of Dentistry. Schools of Law and Medicine, and the freshman class president from voting seats on the senate, and grant full power to the senate to “direct the use of the facilities of the Student Union.” SPIRITED DISCUSSION Though only a bare quorum was present, augmented by exofficio member Jim Mitchell. ASSC president, the committee held a spirited discussion before accepting or revising those sections of Harrison's rough draft which deal with the legislative department of student government, the senate. Significant in the light of past debate over voting methods was the decision to allow colleges to select proportional representatives in a manner prescribed by the individual college.” Apportionment would be decided by the senate on the basis of the number of voters registering in an election. ORIGINAL DRAFT Harrison’s original draft provided voting seats on the senate for the College of Dentistry and the Schools of Medicine and Law. but the measure fell before Mitchell's insistence that more interest in student body affairs would .ie forthcoming from classes than from the three professional schools. Owen King, president of the College of Engineering, protested the possibility of senate control by a large freshman class under the proportional system, and by unanimous consent, the committee agreed to eliminate the freshman class president from the senate until enrollment is “down to normal size.” STUDENT UNION POLICY Taking cognizance of the admonition made at a recent senate meeting by Arnold Eddy, director of student and alumni activities, that a constitution be written granting greater powers than now exist in determinination of Student Union policy, the committee passed without debate the provision for directing use of the building’s facilities. Anita Norcop. AWS president, questioned whether removal of a senate member following three absences was a proper penalty on the ground that such a provision would preclude representation for that senator's college, class, or organization. The matter was resolved when it was agreed that a senator removed by senate action may be replaced by a recognized representative of his group without senate authorization. TEHRAN, Iran, Dec. 10— (EE) — Iranian troops have launched an attack against Azerbaijan province at four points, driving their main spearhead 20 miles inside the border to threaten the Ghaflankuh mountain citadel of Mianeh which guards the read to Tabriz, it was announced today.
