Y,, FRIDAY, MAY 5, 1950 NUMBER 24 SOUTH SEA SEniNG FOR MUD DANCE Class Elections Draw Large Tote Following close on the heels of the Campus Sweetheart Contest, the election of the class officers for 1950-61 received more student support than In several previous years. Although many students did not realize Wednesday was election day until campaigning candidates cornered them to evoke a promise of votes, they did make and keep those promises and turned in an unusually large num­ ber of votes for a Class Officers’ Election. In A & S 339 ballots were cast: 93 for Senior officers, 107 for Jun­ iors, and 139 for Sophomores. Bus. Ad. students turned in 210 votes: 88 for Senior officers, 71 for Juniors, and 51 for Sopho­ mores. In the School of Education no petitions were received tor the of­ fices in either the Sophomore or Junior classes while only a very a very few candidates vied for the senior offices. Seventeen votes were registered in Education, which, however small, represent a high per centage of the seniors in that school. In A & S the new class officers are: Seniors President — Edward Kopf Vice Pres. — Donald Flynn and Ken Newton Secretary — Ann Sidonl Treasurer — Edward Mehl Juniors President — Theodore Mathews Vice President — Leonard Schaer Secretary — Joanne Hanna Treasurer — Don Holzman (Continued on Page 7) Mickey Is Campus Sweetheart JANET DOBBIE MICKEY FARRELL JAN MOONEY Attendant Campus Sweetheart Attendant \Miss Joan \Mickey” Farrell was elected Campus Sweetheart last Tuesday, May 2, over nine other candidates In a hard fought and exceptionally close contest. Though the campaigning was furious, less than 1500 votes were cast — fewer thgn in last y e a r ’s contest. Miss Janet Dobbie and Miss Jan Mooney were runners-up and will serve as attendants to the Sweetheart.

Impounded dogs and cats which would other­ wise under existing ordinances be put to death. This in no way in­ terferes with the operation of the local SPCA which will continue to carry on its noble work. The studies of living creatures, their diseases and the effects of treatm ents upon them are respon­ sible lor all of the medical know­ ledge which has doubled man’s life expectancy in a century. In addi­ tion, these studies have provided the veterinary knowledge which today safeguards our pets and farm livestock. Under existing laws impounded animals needed tor medical re­ search are wastefully gased deny­ ing medical science the living ani­ mal tissue on which necessary ex­ periments must be performed in order to save dying human tissue. The pending resolution requires that all animals be rendered incap. able of feeling pain during opera­ tions, and that during convales­ cence all precautions be taken to (Continued on Page 3) Moving Up Day Events Mile Long Parade Starts Off MUD Tomorrow’s MUD parade, Buf­ falo’s largest annual float parade, will feature 4 bands, 16 official cars, and 30 floats including the Sweetheart loat.

At the half-time of the Wash­ bowl game awards will be present­ ed to intermural athletic winners, and following, the Phys. Hd. maj­ ors perform on the trampoline.

The enticing prizes offered the speediest chariot­ eers are two cases of beer for first place and one case of beer for second place. Hawaiiau Theme At NU Donee Climaxing the Moving Up Day festivities tomorrow, Saturday, May 6, the “Mauna Loa,\ a dance with a South Sea setting, will be held. Norton Union Ballroom is the place where UB students and their friends may dance from 9 p.m. un­ til 1 a.m. for the sum of 75 Hawai­ ian cents per couple. Of course, if Hawaiian money cannot be ob­ tained, American money will do. The \Mauna Ixia\ will be re­ plete with exotic music by Mac KIchan and his Melody Kings, who are coming directly from South Buffalo, palm trees, leis, beauti­ ful women, handsome men, and for the people who have time to eat, the I j O uo u . 'file Louou is the Hawaiian feast to be held buffet style in the cafeteria starting at 10 and continuing until midnight. While the islanders partake of the feast in the candle light, John­ ny Lilliuokamehameha will enter­ tain with his Hawaiian guitar. Dance chairman, Sylvia Zielin­ ski and decorations chairman, Dick Kennlson, report that no ef­ fort has been spared to make this Moving Up Day Dance the proper culmination of 1950 Moving Up Day. They have obtained the proper- I ties from many different places and, because of the genteel clien­ tele expected, do not expect a ty­ phoon or other act of man or na­ ture to cause damage to the prop­ erties. This is expected because the Hawaiian Chamber of Commerce has requested that the palm trees be returned Intact. Tickets are available in Norton Union Lobby at the Booth or from Jerry Mason, ticket chairman, for 75 cents. This price includes music, leis, space to dance, food, and a good time. Co-op Dookstoie To Do Project Of Studeats For years now there has been dissatisfaction with the operation of the bookstore. Among the var­ ious grievances against the book­ store are the following: Students should be able to go in and look at their leisure, Courtesy should be improved. Student help should be substituted for the present out­ side help, and prices should and could be reduced. At present the bookstore is far from the cheery place it could be. Many of the students visit the bookstore only twice a year, once each semester to buy that term ’s books. In comparing our present system with the systems of Cor­ nell, Syracuse, and even Buffalo State Teachers! Co-op Idea Each student would pay |1.00 for a share in the cooperative. At the termination of each semester all profits, which would total well over the original invested dollar, would be returned in form of a dividend. (Continued on Page 6)
