    Campus Views on News By Mackcy W. Hill

    The startling news this week, of course, has been the death of "the Veep", former Vice-President and currently "Junior" Senator frohr Kentucky, Alvan Barkley. He died while delivering a political speech. Only a few days before this, Vice-President Richard Nixon showed that he had "chartered his course" by stating that he would run for re-election. Eisenhower confirmed the Nixon affirmation by a hearty endorsement.

    Another candidate that is campaigning with the blessing of the President is Douglas McKay. Since his resignation from the head of the Intreior Department, McKay has been campaigning vigorously for his Party's nomination to the U. S. Senate. He wants a chance to try to oust Wayne Morse, now Senior Senator from Oregon. With the Langlie Vs. Magnuson race in Washington State and the McKay vs. Morse hassel in Oregon, the Northwest is certain to hold the spotlight of the nation in this coming election when party control of the Con-gress is the prize.

    Eisenhower was out in front of both Stevenson and Kefauvcr in the Alaska election, but if all the Democratic votes had been for one Democratic candidate rather than being split between two he situa-tion would have been different. In any case the next primaries to watch are in Florida, California ,and Oregon. Stevenson seems to be holding his own at the present time. At least he is putting on a more vigorous campaign. All this politicking is a clear sign that this is Sniinsr. that it is May before November, 1956.

    This We Mean by May Day From the time the Romans celebrated their Flor-

    alia, or Floral games, to the present mass demonstra-tions of labor and military strength on the wide ave-nues of Red Square, May Day has been annually ob-served by a large portion of earth's inhabitants. In early centuries, general festivities took place. Flow-ers bursting forth in the freshness of new life, caused a gladness in humans which found expression in song and dance.

    Even though the connotations of May Day in our contemporary world may not be agreeable to us, the original significance of the day has vital, practical and spiritual values. As those in history recognized it as a time of gladness, new life and beauty, let us, on this May Day 1956, cast our cares and perplexities aside, acknowledge the never-failing God who reveals life's real beauty, and be glaYl and carefree on this joyous day.

    Pessimism, Go North With Geese Have you ever heard this: "An optimist is a guy

    who says, 'pass me the cream, please.' A pessimist is one who asks, 'pass the milk if there is any left'." A healthy young pessimist in the very prime of life told me the other day that he was going to get his wife a nice set of stainless-...
