Of Ike Club
The "Ike for President Club"
on campus elected Henry H. In
gram as president at a meeting
. Samuel J. Blackwood, vice
president; and Harvey5 Geitner,
secretary were also elected.
Following the election Ingram
issued this statement:
- ."The 'Ike For President Club'
was formed because we not only
think he is the outstanding can
didate but we believe that the
Republican Party has not been
getting the independent vote that
it should in the past elections

a man nominated with the stature
and ability of .General Eisen
hower. "The reaction on the campus
shows clearly that Eisenhower
is first choice of all the leading
candidates among the students.
We now have an active club and
it is growing very rapidly. The
choice of Senator Taft, however
competent he may be, would dis
courage the young voters of the
country to the point that it may
mean the permanent loss of the
independent voter to the Republi
