The three candidates for President of the Student As sociation—Mike Ferrell, Rick Walker, and Julia Wilson--res ponded to the question, “Which sliould come first for student government: what is best for the students or what is best for the whole college?” Mr. Ferrell stated that student government sliould emphasize what is best (or the entire college because this Is not necessarily In con flict with what Is best for the students. Miss Wilson held a different viewpoint when she stated that the individual should be con sidered first. Miss Wilson added that the good of the in stitution should also be con sidered, but the individual Is placed first. Mr. Walker felt that the focus should not be on the students separately, but the students working with professors and ad ministrators on committees and so forth. In this way the basic concern of all will be the col lege. Also, the students will see that they are taking part in the evolution of the college. In response to the question, “Do you think all efforts should be exerted to secure a healthy percentage of various socio economic representatives on this campus?” Ferrell stated that we must stop this “token” representation and secure such a “healthy” percentage in or Third In Small Colleges Lance Honored By Editors Editors and reporters on eight college newspapers of the Carollnas shared the eighteen awards in the 1969 College Press Awards competition sponsored by the Charlotte Ob server and the Charlotte News.

He added that St. Andrews has made many at tempts to recruit people from different socio-economic back grounds, but they have not “ex hausted all avenues”. Mr. Walker expressed the same opinion and added that he did not think professors would want to stay here if all the stu dents are upper-middle-class or from a select group. Miss Wilson specified that it has al ready been proven that more blacks are needed on our cam pus in order for them to have a voice or to form a society. Candidates for vice-presi dent of the Student Association- Mac Cj-osswell and Chris Heppe--were asked "What is the first issue you feel should be dealt with in the new office of vice-president?” Mr. Cross well felt that the student govern ment should start working for reconstruction of the entire col lege government; that is, stu dents, faculty, and administra tion working together. Ground work for such a program can start with official action from the Senate. Mr. Heppe felt that the first issue should be the black issue on the St. Andrews campus and in the community. As a second issue, Mr. Heppe mentioned drugs and stated that the ad- rpinlstration should work closely with students concern ing drugs Instead of searching students’ rooms at will. Sandra Gaddis and Pete Klop- man, candidates for Attorney General, discussed the issue of drinking on the St. Andrews campus. In commenting on where student government should move now, Miss Gaddis felt that we should wait for the Code of Responsibility Com mittee to make public Its de cisions. If these decisions meet with the approval of students then we should continue in that direction, Mr. Klopman felt that drink ing should be permitted on cam pus within the bounds of civil law. He also stated that St. Andrews should not be only con cerned with'education across the lake, but education in social areas also. As for treatment of a judicial case of abuse of present drinking regulations, Mr. Klopman felt that it de pended upon the situation.
