Senate Passes Housing Bill WASHINGTON, Apr. 22—The senate today passed a bill under which the federal government would throw powerful financial support into the fight to lick the housing shortage and clear away slums. Mighty Strange These Pranks Politicos Play! Being a candidate in the local political conflict is no bed of roses. Take Joe Flynn’s word for it. Late Wednesday night, as he was studying in his room at Aeneas hall, he was startled by a thunderous rapping on the door. Opening the door he found a large envelope nailed to it. Inside the envelope was a big grey rat with its throat cut. “Didn’t get a wink of sleep all night, thinking about it,” Flynn said. Yesterday morning he received in his mail a letter accepting his application for Golden Gloves’ boxing and giving him instructions on when to report for weigh-ing-in. “I’m no boxer,” said Flynn. “I can’t imagine who signed me up, but I do have a suspicion as to why they did.’' Starting yesterday morning he also began receiving all the local newspapers. Seems somebody subscribed for them too—in his name. Flynn is a candidate for ASSC president. YWCA Picks Global Theme International festival has been selected as the theme of the annual YWCA carnival, which is planned for next Friday night from 7 to 11 at Casa de Rosas, men’s dormitory at the corner of Adams and Hoover. Sororities and dormitories have planned their concessions along the international theme, with ideas ranging from booths selling American ice cream sundaes to a German beer garden and a skit of “The Shooting of Dan McGrew.” In addition to the concessions featuring food, games, and variety shows, dancing and entertainment have been arranged for visitors. Tickets, which are row being sold at the Y, are 25 cents each, 10 cents of which goes for admission. The remainder may be spent at the concessions. Purpose of the event is to raise operating funds for the campus YWCA. Tommy Trojan plates and cups and saucers will be sold at the Y booth. Prices of the dishes, which are also available at the Y house, are $1.25 for the 8-inch plate and $1.65 for a cup and saucer. Law Students Pick Leaders Law students went to the polls yesterday and elected officers for the SC bar association. Approximately two-thirds of the eligible electorate cast ballots, according to Wallace Manley, president of the Bar association. Elected were Bill Hogobcom, president. 150 votes: John Stanton, vice-president, 168 votes; Charles Kopp, public relations officer, 146 votes; and Mary Waters, secretary-treasurer, 175 votes. Other candiddates: Dick Alden, 80 votes, and Bob Fainer. 61 votes, president; Chuck Howard, 83 votes, and Don Levy, 38 votes, vice-president; Charles Harris, 90 votes, and Dick Rattner, 45 votes, public relations officer; and Tom Bunn, 113 votes, secretary-treasurer. rollcall, submitted its presidential choice. The voting ended in a 13-13 tie, with two fraternities abstaining. Earlier in the evening, Grafton Tanquary, Kappa Alpha, and Jim Young, Sigma Chi, arose to state that their organizations would withhold from voting as a unit. PROPOSALS OFFERED The council, as a result of the Davis-Winn deadlock, was thrown into momentary confusion until several proposals were offered. Bill Bretz presented a solution that the council hold an all-Row primary in the near future, with the sororities participating in the vote. The Bretz motion was overwhelmingly passed, and will be tabled until Helen Hall Moreland, dean of women, has been consulted concerning the woman vote. CANVASS COLONIES Earlier, Bretz had proposed that the nonvoting colonies and clubs be canvassed for a possible solution to the tie. The motion was defeated. Jim Young took the floor to suggest that both Winn and Davis be allowed to run in May with IFC backing. This proposal was also defeated. Other candidates receiving the IFC backing at last night’s meeting were Art Williams for LAS president, Williams winning the nod over Jack Silverstein. Cedric Gerson won the College of Commerce nomination over Fred Bertram and Bud Brooks; Wayne Chi-appe, president of College of Engineering. over Jack Gardino and Walt Ohlslager; and Don Gill, unopposed nomination for College of Architecture prexy. ROYER UNOPPOSED Jim Royer was unopposed for International Relations president, as was Ben Kegier for the College of Music post. Senior class president backing was given to Dave Saunders crver Don Robertson. Harry Cook for junior head won out over Hugh Greenup. Jack Rogers won the nod for yell king from Dick Calkins and Bill Winston. Mike Banta was unopposed for veterans representative. Drizzle Blamed For Disinterest Drizzling rain temporarily stopped student registration yesterday, and registration booths were quickly set up in the Student Union and the univers*ty library. The Student Union booth, in “Squatter'* territory, was especially busy. Later in the afternoon, stations were placed in the Annex, Pharmacy, and Law buildings, for students wishing to register between classes. FIRST PERIOD CLOSES Election Commissioner Jerry Jones reminded students that today is the last day to register in the first period. If it does not rain today, the main registration station will reopen in front of the Administration building. “We are looking for, and are prepared to take care of the last-minute rush today.* Jones declared. “We had expected at least 5000 students to register in this first period, but to date student interest has been negligible,” he added. APATHY CONTINUES Although the elections commission quickly set up the new stations after it began to rain, the registration count continued on the down-grade. Only 294 students registered yesterday, making a total of 2815 registrants for the four-day period. This makes only an average of 704 lor each day, while the registration assistants claim they could easily have handled* over 3000. “Some students are attempting to register with last semester’s identification card,” said Jones. This semester’s yellow identification card must be presented by the student at the time of registration. It will be punched by the registration assistant at the desk as a check against multiple voting. 'Kinsey Report' Blasts SC Male ★ ★ ★ ★ Wampus Hits Campus Barring rain, SC’s nationally famed humor magazine Wampus will go on sale at all campus newsstands this morning. So declared the Wampus editors yesterday, adding that no SC veteran can afford to miss this issue, in view of unsettled world conditions. “Wampus will have a refresher course for veterans,” said Managing Editor Art Buchwald, “that will be most useful in helping the vet reorient himself, just in case.” A sample draft questionnaire which will contain a series of questions pertaining to UMT and military service wiU also be included. The editors insist that this questionnaire is very timely and of interest to veterans and non-veterans alike. In addition to a seductive portrait of the “Girl of the Month” and a reportedly hilarious collection of more than 50 cartoons, representing the “cream of collegiate humor,” the periodical will also contain a psychological survey ot Trojan libido, entitled “Sexual Behavior in the Trojan Male.” This Kinsey-type report, say the editors, is being published in its complete and unexpurgated form. A new Wampus feature by Ted and Joe Large, called “Stepping Out.” was hailed by those who saw the proofs as “an excellent guide to local hot spots written by two fellows who are experts at going out on the town.” Andy Anderson, local ambler and associate editor, assures prospective readers that Wpmpus will contain a Roses and Razzes department “unparalleled in Wampus history,” and that it will present a complete expose of week-end goings-on af Balboa and Laguna. Wampus will be ava lable tc all comers for the regular price of 25 cents, payable in cash to any of the attractive vendors or Buchwald.
