Faculty Survey Shows Nixon
Ahead In Presidential Poll
By JOE MEDLIN
A poll of several UNC profes
sors this week showed that they
feel that Vice-President Rich
ard M. Nixon is the front-runner
in the presidential campaign.
Five of eight professors polled
said either that they felt Nixon

One said he was for Kennedy,
while the other said he was not
particularly for either candidate.
Several other professors who

the election either way.
"I am a Democrat and will
vote for Kennedy."
Kenneth R. Byerly, associate
professor of Journalism said the
latest polls show that Nixon has

"I am for Nixon. I think he is
the best man."
Clarence E. Philbrook, pro
