Leaders Of Short-Lived Cadet Confederacy Get Theirs
Hooded freshman guards armed with trash cans of water march on
either side of the deposed Corps “junta” leaders, on the way to an
early-morning “execution” Tuesday. The coup was an elaborate
April Fool’s day stunt led by Cadet Colonels John W. Morgan of
the First Brigade; Carl Feducia, Second Brigade; John R. Baldridge,
First Wing, and Richard Engel, Second Wing.
Coup leaders, already soaked by one volley of water from the
“firing squad,” brace for more. Baldridge, right, managed to keep
his traditional “last cigarette” throughout the execution. Feducia
stands at left. The execution was ordered after the Confederacy’s
“special order number one” self-destructed Monday night and Corps
Staff returned to power.
The condemned prisoners ate a hearty breakfast—after the “execu
tion.” From left, they are Morgan; Bob Hale, Corps Administra
tion sergeant; Baldridge; Hector Gutierrez, Corps supply sergeant;
Clarence Daugherty, Corps chaplain, and Engel. The Coup leaders
were invited to eat at the Corps Staff table to show there were no
hard feelings. (Photo by Moke Wright)

In addition to approving the
result* of last week’s cl ess elec

and clarification* in the .present
election procedures.
On* important decisioTT con
cerned future run-off*. Students
asked at a special ejection com
mission meeting Monday if the
number of run-offs should be
limited to the two candidates own
ing the higeet number of votes.
Several students said that the
totals of last wesk’s election,
which showed several offices hav
ing more than two candidates
with similar number of votes,
proved their point. They argued
that if a third candidate acquired
within two or three votes of the
highest two, he should be included
in the run-offs.
the idea of more than two candi
dates in a run-off, and approved
the following rsoouhion:
“Run-offs shall include only the
two candidates with the greatest
number of votes. In case of e tie
for second place in an election,
the first place candidate and the
two second-place candidates will
compete in a run-off, plurality
deciding the winner.”

one commissioner explained. "But
then later we caught some of the

through the polls a second time,
using their activity cards.’

Chairman Anthony Benedetto led
the discussion on the activity
“The commission finally deeid-
Rules affecting various aspects
of campaigning, placement of
campaign posters, end election
campaign gatherings were sub
jected to extensive examination
by commission members.
“For example, political com
ments over the public address sys
tems in either dining hall will be
prohibited in future elections,”
Benedetto explained. “This will
help prevent an unfair advantage
on the part of the candidate.”
Another change was the place
ment of campaign posters.
“The locations of signs in the
future will be on the Guion Hall
lawn (the traditional place estab
lished for the signa); between the
University hospital sad Hender
son Hall; within all dormitories;
and within the University apart
ment arses," he aakL
ACCORDING to the revised
rale*, campaign material may al
so be placed on doors and dormi
tory bulletin boards.
"Posters on bulletin boards,
however, are limited to an 8^fc” x
11” sixe,” Benedetto said.
The rules on campaigning over
radio, television and newspapers
were clarified by the election
Their motion "That campaign
ing in radio, television, and class
ified advertisements be allowed
so long as they are within the
$25 limitation that is stated in
the voting regulations,’ carried.
The Commission also decided
that in the future, any gather
ing which prohibits the normal
flow of campus activities will be
prohibited. Students will be al
lowed, however, to participate in
campaign demonstrations, pa
rades, and other types of elec
tion campaigning. Gatherings of
any type that would include a
large number of students cam
paigning will only be allowed
from 5 p.m. to 7:80 p.m. week
This decision was mad*. Bene
detto said, so that campaigning
would not interrupt classes

Bay, N. J., said about 200 persons
are expected for the 6:30 p.m.
banquet in the Memorial Student
