STUDENTS FLOCK TO POLLS AS POPULARITY CONTEST VOTE OPENS Twenty-two Campus Favorites Nominated This Week For Seven Titles ONE BOX FOUND UNDER BALL STAND Final Voting Will Take Place At-Same Hour Next Monday Morning Campus politicians again came into their own Monday when the primary in Loyola's popularity contest conducted each year under the auspices of the Maroon and the Student Council, was held to nominate twenty one celebrites for seven honorary positions. As added attractions to the regular balloting there were arguments at the polls caused by members of various departments politicking their followers and exhorting them to vote for this or that candidate. This was supplemented by a stolen ballot box which disappeared for about ten or fifteen minutes and was afterward found beneath the baseball grand stand on the athletic field. Voting in the department of Arts and Science was poorest of all the schools. Only about fifty per cent of the total number of arts students cast ballots. Law school led the way with almost a perfect vote in proportion to the number enrolled. Pharmacy was second with Dentistry third. Nominate Three For Each iTtle.
