Asked if he wanted more time to investigate, the debate captain 6aid: “No, I don’t want an extension. I want some sleep.” Jansen said he could make one of three recommendations to the Senate, the first two of which would be “bad” and the last of which would be “devastating.” Fraud Uncovered “I could aske that the Senate approve the election despite the fraud the committee has already uncovered,” he said. “Or we could call for a new election despite the fact that even if the fraudulent ballots weren’t counted, most election results wouldn’t be changed. “Or I could tell senators to fight out the issue among themselves.” ‘Skulduggery* The committee has found some forged signatures on the ID cards and some “skulduggery” regarding the School of Medicine ballots. Jansen said his committee has turned over some names of persons suspected of perpetrating the fraud to the Faculty Committee on Student Activities. He has testimonial evidence to back his accusations, he said. “Who are the suspects?” he was asked. “Four men." “Row men.” “Row men?” “Tong men?” “Tong men.” “Their names?” “No comment.” Didn’t Cooperate Jansen said his committee failed to investigate more fully because workers from both parties didn’t cooperate. Of the 30 members only eight were working at any one time. The hardest workers were Bette Dobkin, Mary Faye Mathes, Diane Major, Chickie Mueller, Sid Owowitz, Kitty Rategan. Si Rosenthal, Merle Welch, and Pat White, Jansen said. “The only reason the committee accomplished as much as it did is that ‘Silent Cal’ (Clendening) is in San Francisco at the Pacific Coast Student Body President Association,” he added.

Zech Counselor of Men CHEESECAKERS—Nancy Hyslap is up at the plate to hit for the DeeGees and Margaret Thompson is the backstop for the Pi Phis. Both sororities will vie in the second Cheesecake series Thursday at Bovard field. CHEESECAKE GAME SET FOR THURSDAY SANDY HUBBELL . . . princess SUSAN EVANS . . . princess BARBARA PAGE . . . princess DIAN GREEN . . . princess Joan Armstrong Reigns As Queen at Fraternity Formal JOAN ARMSTRONG . . . ^ueen Pretty Joan Armstrong reigned as queen of Lambda Chi Alpha’s annual Cross and Crescent formal at the West-side Tennis Club Friday night. Her coronation took place at sundown at the home of Bob Carpenter, fraternity member, during a preformal cocktail party. A member of Kappa Alpha Theta sorority, Miss Armstrong was attended by Lambda Chi princesses Sandy Hubbell, Delta Gamma; Susan Evans, Chi Omega; Barbara Page, Alpha Phi, and Dian Green, Pi Beta Phi. Two dozen red roses and a gold perpet- ual trophy were presented to the new queen by last year’s monarch Judy Shaffer. The attendants were given pearl compacts and small bouquets. More than 300 persons attended the formal, which was co-sponsored' by the San Diego, Santa Barbara, and UCLA chapters of Lambda-Chi. Couples danced to the music of Maynard Ferguson and his 10-piece band. Miss Armstrong was escorted to the dance by Carpenter. Walt Ricardi took Miss Hubbell; Mel Steavens accompanied Miss Evans; J(^in Phillips escorted Miss Page; and Ted Qardner took Dian Green. One year ago the members of Delta Gamma and Pi Beta Phi sororit’es struggled for five innings on Bovard Field to determine the champion in the first annual Cheesecake Series. To those who witnessed that “softball game,” little need be said except that its first renewal will take place on the same field at 3:15 Thursday. To those who did not, or could not, see that first experimental game, it must be explained that a precedent of some kind was set that day. Simulating an actual softball contest, the game also simulated everything from a'stag movie to a Barnum and Bailey Circus. Spectators Spectators left Bovard that afternoon weak with nervousness, laughter and just plain enjoyment. The Pi Phi’s emerged from that wild melee victorious by a 6-5 count. It took a clutch single in the last inning to pull it out of the fire for the Powderpuffs, as the DeeGee Diamond Dainties watched in despair. Just what precedent was set is still undetermined but the game proved novel, to say the least, in every respect, and won acclaim as an institution which must be continued. It will be. Thursday. Reports have it that the Dee-Gee’s are mad and out for revenge. It is said that pitcher Kathleen Homme flattened three strong men on Bovard several afternoons ago. She was limbering up the old arm and accidentally swung around too fast. The chatting trio she caught across the jaws went down hard. DG Spies On the other hand, DG spies report in awe that Janie Cochran, the slugging Pi Phi utility player, has been paddling Pi Phi pledges with railroad ties in an attempt to loosen up the muscles for the coming fray. Both squads have been holding practice sessions for two weeks, but report on them is only by rumor. No reporter has tried to crash a practice session since last year when a poor chap spent three weeks in Mercy Hospital from injuries received when he was caught spying. Starting line-ups are either undecided or as yet undisclosed. DG coach Jon Kruse told friends that competition for starting berths was so stiff this year he would not be able to make up his mind until game time. “I just hope the girls save some enthusiasm for the Pi Phi’s, and don’t injure themselves too seriously in practice. We’ve already had some tense moments and a few nasty hen fights.” Magic Charm The Pi Phi’s, confident that the magic charm of their batboy, Dean Hyink, will prevail again, remain silent to the press. Apparently they fear not the wiles of the opposing batboy, Ken Shanks. The annual Cheesecake Series is a charity event, cosponsored by Kappa Sigma and Sigma Alpha Epsilon fraternities. All^pro-ceeds go to Troy Camp. Jim Mitchell, SAE game chairman, said he expects this year’s crowd to far exceed that of last year, and in turn expects the game’s contribution to Troy Camp to far exceed last year’s substantial one. Chancellor Rufus B. von KleinSmid is slated to again open ceremonies by tossing out the first ball. gestures, the KA-Kappa entry proved a hit with the audience as well as the judges. The arrangement of a hit tune of the late 1920’s was presented smoothly with an effective rhythm background of banjo, bass, and bongo drums. The setting portrayed a grass hut home flanked by two coconut trees set orf by effective lighting. The sweepstakes winner was directed by Susie Nelson and Payne Johnson. Largest Division Hawaiian-clad Tri-Delts and Acacians carried off the first place trophy in the Mixed Division with their rendition of “Poinciana,” directed by Ken Davis. Eleven mixed groups competed for the three trophies in the largest division. “Dream,” presented by Gamma Phi Beta and Alpha Tau Omega won second place. A huge Pi Beta Phi-Phi Delta Theta chorus dressed in black sweaters and charcoal slacks and skirts took the third place Mixed Division trophy with “Temptation.” The Kappas, winners of three first place trophies, captured the small group division with a Herm McCoy arrangement of the spiritual, “The Old Arc’s Amoverin,” directed by Jo Mathews. Acacia’s quintet, wearing plaid dinner jackets, took the second place trophy with “Baby, You’re Bugging Me.” Novelty Numbers Placing second to “Oh By Jingo,” in the six-entry Novely Division was the Zeta Tau Alpha-Delta Chi florescent production of “Do Lord.” directed by Margaret Mee. With the stage dark except for special colored spotlights, only the florescent white mouths and eyes and the light blue hands and feet of the singing “darkies” were visable going through novel gestures. Alpha Tau Omega won the Men’s Division with a Ions: line of Union troops marching in place, while singine “The Battle Hvmn of the Republic, directed by George Rodda. Special Awards “Snow White Fantasy.” a medly of tunes from “Snow White,” won first place in the Women’s Division for Kappa Delta, directed by Jeanette Drannon. Special awards were presented by Phi Mu Alpha music fraternity, and Mu Phi Epsilon music sorority to Gamma Phi Beta and Aloha Tau Omega for their mixed Division number, “Dream.” Stirring Finale Finally, all participants, more than 800 of them, trooped onto the stage for the stirring finale that literally rocked the tall trees that rise up all around the outdoor theater. NORMAN ADAMS . . . fellowship winner Adams to Co To New York On Fellowship Norman Adams, instructor in economics, has been selected to go to the U.S. Steel Corporation in New York for six weeks this summer on an Education Business Exchange Fellowship, the economics department announced Friday. The award is sponsored by the Foundation of Economic Education, which acts as liaison between big business organizations and universities. Adams, one of the few SC faculty members who has ever won the fellowship, will go to the ex-port-import division of U.S. Steel, where he will study investment opportunities in the Middle East through foreign trade. The fellowship will pay for Adams’ transportation and expenses for the trip. Winning scholastic awards is nothing new to Adams, who is the youngest (24 years old) faculty member at SC. He is now working on his PhD on a university graduate scholarship. As an undergradute, he won four annual full tuition Dickinson scolarships. He also went on a Fulbright scholarship to Oxford, where he did graduate study in monetary economics. BIG BOATLOAD Rocki Rhodes Beauty Contest Bombarded by Bevy of Belles “Im so happy I just don’t know what to say. I’m all shook up.” It was a tearful Rocki Rhodes that made the above statement Friday afternoon following the sudden entry of the entire Theta and DeeGee houses into the “Typical Rocki Rhodes Campus Lovely” contest. Rhodes, it may be remembered, commented earlier last week that “she” was rather disappointed with the turnout of Thetas and DeeGees for “her” contest, which was inaugurated to name the “queen-of-queens” at SC. But the Thetas and the DeeGees, in a sudden move just prior to the 3 p.m. entry deadline of last Friday, submitted 110 additional entries for the coveted beauty title. ‘Wholesale’ Entry Legal Sponsor Rhodes was quick to comment that the “wholesale” entry was legal. “All the requirements were met—no fraud here,” Rhodes said. “The entries were submitted before the 4 p.m. deadline. And the Thetas and DeeGees both submitted legitimate group pictures.” The additional 53-entries raised to 55 the number of KAT members entered in the unique^ contest. Earlier entries were submitted by Thetas Joan Price and Joan Armstrong. As for the DeeGees, their 57-entries upped their total to 50. Joann Peterson and Marlene Hansen were the earlier DeeGee entries. Bonus Points Rocki added that it was undoubtedly the "promise of 15 bonus points” that Induced the Thetas and the DeeGees to take such enthusiastic interest in the contest. “I promise that 15-point bonus will stay in effect during judging,” ‘she” added. “As anyone can readily see, they sure can use those extra points.” Meanwhile, Rhodes announced, that in all, 121 “campus lovelies” entered the unique contest. Following the final screening of candidates’ entries today, the 121 “campus lovelies” will under- go the interview segment of the contest tomorrow. A full schedule of interview times will be released in tomorrow’s Daily Trojan. Long Interviews ‘The interviews wfl! probably take a day or two," Rocki stated. “The winner should be announced by Wednesday or Thursday of this week.” A complete list of the entries include: The entire Theta house (55 members), the entire DeeGee house (59 members), Kappas Diane Major and Jean McNeil, Pi Phi Mary Ann Cassidy, Tri-Delt Sara Donald, ZTA Nellie Jorrist-ma, Sue Durant, and Georgia Rodee. Prizes to be awarded to the “typical campus lovely” contest winner include a pastrami sandwich, a bar of Lifebuoy soap, a plastic unbreakable jar of “Stopette,” a tube of Hazel Bishop Smearproof lipstick, and, finally, a date with the man of her choice from the Daily Trdf&n staff.
