John Chandler, president of the
Chamber of Commerce, said he believed the results of this mock election would show the political leanings of the state as a whole, because
the students are representative of
every section of Kentucky. He noted
that the election will serve a twofold purpose to educate the student
in the use of the voting machine,
and to find out the degree of student and faculty interest in the
forthcoming election.
In previous mock elections held on
campus, voting was restricted to students who were residents of the
state. However, all students and
faculty members will be eligible to
vote in the election next Tuesday.
Workers at the polls will have a list
of all students and faculty on campus and will check off their names
as they vote. In this way, there will
be no duplication of votes.
Each voter will be considered a
resident of the "nation" of Kentucky, the "state" of Lexington, University "county", and the Student
Union "precinct."
The last "straw vote" held in
October, 1948, proved that the students were good at predicting national election results. They elected
Harry Truman over the predicted
winner Thomas E. Dewey. At that
time a popular campus phrase was

Vote To Have
Informal Rush
Council voted
this week to have an informal rush
beginning Oct. 18 and lasting
through Nov. 1.
The IFC plans to give each fraternity a list of the 129 students
who registered for rush at the beginning of the semester but either
dropped out of rush or were not
pledged. Other persons interested
in going out for rush may sign up
in the Dean of Men's office between
Oct. 13 and 17. A list of these new
rushees will also be distributed to
the fraternities.
Preference day will be Nov. 2.
Fraternities are required to turn
their preference lists in by 8 a.m. in
Room 127 of the Student Union.
Rushees will report between 9 and
11:30 a.m. to make their preference
of four fraternities.
Informal rush will be similar to
last year's rushing with only a few
restrictions. Fraternities are asked
not to speak dishonorably of other
fraternities. No one can be pledged
who has not registered before Oct.
17 and paid the $2 fee. There will
be no more pledging this semester
after Nov. 2. If a pledge breaks his
pledge with a fraternity, he cannot
pledge again until next year.
Generally, the IFC applauded the
new rushing system for its
and workability. One
member said that if the predictions
of the faculty and Board of Trustees
holds true, the University, not always known for large fraternities,
can look forward to a much greater
enrollment and student activity, especially along the proposed fraternity row.

Decline Of Voters
Reveals Disinterest
In Nation's Future
Year by year, greater numbers of our people
lose interest in freedom.

Recent statistics compiled by several research
agencies show that although the number of eligible
voters in the country has increased through population gains in the last half century, the actual number of those who go to the polls on any given election day has steadily declined.
Our country was founded on the premise that
every man has the right amounting to a moral obligationto vote for the government of his choice.
The decline of voters is an alarming indication of
a general apathy that might well allow us to slip
into a period of decline similar to that which preceded the fall of great civilizations in the past.
The nation is particularly dependent upon its college students. It is they, better educated and
therefore more aware of current political, social, and
economic problems and methods of dealing with
them, who must take over when the elders lay
down the reins of leadership.

for many of our elders and walk to the polls to

mock election will accomplish little in a practical
way, but it will serve to show what we can expect
from the country's future citizens.
Voting, like the use of a muscle, is a function

UK Fires Have Been Expensive
Ad appearing in the Ixwisiana State Daily Rev-

eille: "NED REITS The Only Leader in the South
Having Seven Instruments and I lis Orchestra."

The letters TNE stand for Tan Xu Epsilon, a
group of pranksters and vandals who have been
banned on rnany campuses, including the University of Kansas campus.
But last Saturday TNE was back in Kansas; they
had burned their initials on the football field, and,
were it not for some hasty patchwork, the initials
would have lxen viewed by 20 million TV football
fans that afternoon.
University officials, hopping mad, said the vandals will be punished if they catch them.

Various "weeks" set aside annually ordinarily
don't have too much significance for us here at UK.
However, a current observance, National Fire Prevention Week, is especially meaningful. During
the last 20 years, four major campus conflagrations
have resulted in damages totaling $758,000.
The first blaze within this span was back in 1928
when the then-neAlumni gymnasium went up
in flames. Fortunately firemen were able to contain the fire and damages were listed at $8,000. In
1946, fire swept through the Service building. Fed
by stored gasoline and oil, flames destroyed property valued at $500,000.
A year later, in 1947, the west wing of the Arts
Center on Euclid avenue was gutted, destroying
the old Guignol theater and offices of the Dramatic

Arts Department. The loss this time was set at
$50,000. The fourth major fire occurred in 1948
when firemen were called to the UK campus once
more, this time to battle a $200,000 blaze in Norwood Hall, a geology and mineralogy storehouse.
One result of these four fires has been the strict
University ruling about smoking in classroom buildings. Lexington Fire Chief Earl R. McDanicl
counts student cooperation an important factor in
preventing future campus losses.
Try and remember then, when you're tempted
to light that cigarette before you get to the door
of a restricted building, fires have cost us, students
and taxpayers of Kentucky, a little over $750,000 in
the last 20 years. Let's not allow any more money
to go up in smoke.

The Readers Speak: Praise Given To Aggies
Dear Editor:
I was very much impressed with the spirit,


thusiasm, and sportsmanship shown by the Texas
A & M students at the football game when we
played there last week. I had heard much about
