Students Predict Results
Of Presidential Election
For the fourth consecutive presidential campaign, UK students predicted the outcome of the election.
In a mock election helu on campus Oct. 14, D wight D. Eisenhower
received 771 votes, and Adlai E.
Stevenson got 565. Eisenhower received 56 percent of the total votes,
1.336 , cast by students and faculty.
National election results show
that Eisenhower has received 55.4
percent of the popular vote. With
135.471
out of 146,361 precincts
counted, Eisenhower's vote was
31.862,042
and Stevensons 25,654,-34- 8.
The mock election also forecast
the victory of John Sherman Cooper
over Thomas R. Underwood for U.S.
Senator. Cooper, receiving 60 percent of the total student votes, got
804 votes and Underwood got 525
votes.

The vote in 3597 of the state's
4.135 precincts gave Cooper 481,079
and Underwood 452,574. Cooper's
percentage is 51.

SGA Cuts Budget,
Then Wonders Why

Kyian Is Limited
One of the best demonstrations of a group of
people who closed their eyes and then begged to
know' why they couldn't see was given this week
by certain Assembly members of the Student Government Association.
These indignant student legislators are all m a
fret because they've just found out that the current
edition of the Kentuckian is going to use group
shots of everyone except seniors, and members of
fraternities and sororities. These Assembly members are also doing some dark brooding over the
fact that junior pictures are being left out of the
'book this year.
For some time now, successive editors of the
Kyian have tried in vain to explain the economic
facts of life to, SGA members. Time after time,, it's
been pointed but that printing and engraving costs
have risen in the past few years just like everything
else. ..
SGA has seemingly paid little attention to the
editors for in 1949 they cut the yearbook's appropriation from $800 to $300 and then last year, disregarding a warning that another cut would endanger the quality and content of the book in the
future, the Assembly cut the appropriation down to
a meagre $3737
This irresponsible legislative action hurts all students in the long run, not just the editors of the
annual who try to put out a good product. Remember, you who are buying annuals so that you can
have a record of your college years, the reason your
Kentuckian won't le a good as it might have been
is because of the reckless and willingly ignorant appropriation slashing done by members of the SGA.

Homecoming Queen,
Pep Rally Indicate
New Suky Attitude
After years of being forced to accept Homecoming queens who were selected by a group of judges,
UK students this week were given the opportunity
to clioose their own queen in an open election.
Suky was responsible for the welcome change in
procedure and we think the members of the group
have earned a pat on the back for a job well done.
At various times this fall, the Kernel has been
rather harsh with UK's pep organization for its apparent lack of initiative and sympathy for the wishes
of the student body.
At the Mississippi State game, Suky first gave a
sign that it had come alive. The card section,
revered by Suky members and generally resented
by the students, was thrown out and extra efforts
were made to jolt the student cheering sections
from a ponderous apathy. We still remember that
game with a sense of pride and wonder. Never before, in four years at UK, had we heard students
cheering so loud, so long, and so enthusiastically.
Carrying on in the same vein this week, Suky
ha9 arranged a huge pep rally for tonight, featuring
a novel football game letween two teams of girls.
UK's pep organization has come a long way since

by both the SEC and the NCAA are far more severe than the crime merits, especially since they
punish current basketball players who are innocent
of any crime and let the actual offenders go free.
Nevertheless, from a moral standpoint, UK knowingly broke the law and so must and should pay
the price.
One element, however, in the situation strikes tis
as highly unjust. Our judges are themselves far
from pure. We were found guilty of a crime that
is condoned and practiced by members of lx)th the
groups that tried us. Common practice since the
first
football lowl game has been to
pay every man on each team a minimum of $250.
Surely there is no moral difference between paying
a football player for his efforts in a bowl game ami
paying a basketball player a far smaller sum for
his work in a
tournament.
The double standard in politics, economics, and
morality was long ago judged unfair ami archaic.
Let's have a single standard in athletics too one
code of ethics for basketball and football and one
code of ethics for UK and other members of the
SEC and the NCA A.

Scientist Reveals Similarity
Of Apes, Criminals, Fellow Profs
Contrary to current public opinion, there have
always been a few scientists not devoted to inventing ways of thinning out the human race.
Among them was the late Dr. Homer Sapien, former Professor of Anthropometry at Midwestern
University. ( Anthropometry is the science of measuring the human body and its parts. )
After spending the major part of his life measuring nice people, Dr. Sapien de- cided that they weren't the least
bit interesting, nor interested in
being measured. Therefore he
turned to measuring the physical
characteristics of apes and comparing them with criminals in the
various penal institutions through
out the land,
A few years later he compiled the statistical
data proving the shocking similarity of the ape and
the criminal into a large volume entitled Evolutionary Revolutionary.

Although the book did not make more than two
Clubs, it did create quite a
stir among anthropometrical circles.
th

Dr. Sapien's colleagues found "two major weaknesses in his theory. Qne, he did not choose a
representative segment of criminality since only
the less intelligent criminals are in the prisons. In
order to get a valid sample, they asserted, he should
have measured some of the politicians in Washingwhite-collton and some of the
criminals.

The second weakness they found in the professor's theory was that he should have also provided
statistics showing a comparison with what was considered the
element of our society.
And if this group was shown to possess fewer of
e
the
measurements, his theory would be
substantiated.

In view of all this opposition, Dr. Sapien realized
his professional esteem was at stake and started in
once again to verify his claims.

His first step was to go to Washington, where he
masqueraded as a lobbyist for a mink coat concern.
After a hundred mink coats and a
