The High Point native de feated Lois Chase of Lynn, Mass., in a hard-fought campaign. Four rising seniors offered an impressive array of past experience and ran unopposed for the execu tive council of the Student Legis lature. Campaigning before the student body, past treasurer and presidential candidate David Mil ler of Salem, New Jersey, cited the past achievements of the fledgling legislature. Dave then outlined the present and anticipated problems for the coming term and called on the students as a whole to support the executive council in the elec tion and throughout the year.

Legislature Report The main discussion at the April 22 meeting of the new Student Legislature concerned the recent North State Student Government Spring Conference. Several repre sentatives from Guilford attended the proceedings which were held at Elon College a few weeks ago. The Guilford representatives join ed students from nine other mem ber colleges in a two-day confer ence in which they discussed some of the problems common to small college campuses. In formal work shops led by students of the spon soring school and during informal discussions, the representatives ex changed problems and solutions of student government, social activi ties, and academic standards. A proposal that the forthcoming Spring conference be held at Guil ford was made at the meeting, but official action on the proposal will be taken at the next meeting of the legislature. One of the major activities of the North State Student Govern ment at this point is an attempt to set up a competitive academic con test among the member colleges much in the same manner of the televised College Bowl. The idea is still in the organizational stage while proposals are being made to the various colleges which would be participating, but the NSSGA is hoping to have the plan in action by next year. The CjuilfonSon Published by the Students of the South's Only Quaker College Programs by College Choir On May 12, the Guilford College A Capella Choir, directed by Mr. Jerry Smyre, will present Brahm's Requiem. The performance will take place at four o'clock in the af ternoon at Dana Auditorium, and admission will be free. This is the first time that the choir has presented the Requiem. Although they have had only a month to practice this difficult work, it is expected that the per formance will be very well done. Soloists for the work will be Jimmie Hedgecock, baritone, and Cinny White, soprano. Mr. Claude Cook will be accompanist at the organ. The Requiem was one of Brahms' greatest compositions. It was com pleted in 1869, and its first per formance made Brahms' work fa mous. The Requiem was composed in memory of Brahms' great friend, Bobert Schumann, who had died in 1856. Jerry Smyre says of the work, "I think it is one of the most beautiful pieces of music that has ever been written. I have always wanted to conduct it." On May 13, six baritones and five tenors from the choir will be participating with Woman's Col lege and High Point College in presenting the Fame Requiem. The North Carolina Symphony will be accompanying the concert, whch will be held in Aycock Audi torum at Woman's College. Publications Editors Elected In the race for Guilfordian editor Ted Buddine was victorious over Karen Baldwin. A rising senior from Winston-Salem, Ted cam paigned for a constructive and re sponsible newspaper that would give the campus as complete news coverage as possible. He empha sized the need for regular contact with the faculty and departments as well as club news and closer co operation with the student govern ment. Harriet Huber was elected managing editor. Linda Byrd James of Mebane was elected on a yes-no ballot as editor of the yearbook, Quaker. As classes editor in 1962 and associate editor this year, Linda cited her ex perience among her qualifications in a brief but well-received speech.

C., MAY 3, 1963 Krauss to Reign Over May Day '63 Festivities This weekend the Guilford Col lege campus will suddenly come to life in its annual eruption known as May Day. This eagerly-awaited event is the highlight of the spring social calendar, the celebration of the coming of the May. The day begins bright and early with the jaunt of the diaper-clad freshmen. Starting in front of Cox Hall the runners are routed past the women's dorms where they re ceive encouragement from wide eyed co-eds. Men's May Day then gets into full swing with the pre sentation of humorous skits which are written and performed by each dorm or section. The skits are then judged and awards are made for the most humorous and original presentation. Following the completion of the men's salute to May, the proceed ings are interrupted by Saturday morning classes. In the afternoon the main event of the day takes place. This is the girls' May Day pageant. The Guilford lovelies, be decked in colorful costumes, pre sent an afternoon of music and dance culminating in the crowning of the Queen of the May and her court. The fair Linda Krauss of Garden City, New York, is the reigning monarch of this year's May Day. In the waning hours, couples clad in formal attire will beat a path to Guilford's Golden Ballroom to dance away the last fleeting mo ments of the day. As it is every year, May Day is sure to be a me morable and gay day for all from beginning to end.

Ray and Larry urged votes for "mature and responsible" leadership. Bob and Gary's posters made frequent use of poetry to promote their tick et. The campaign was punctuated by a number of novel incidents. At one evening meal, diners found every napkin stamped "Davidson and York." On the eve of election day, fifteen or twenty of the girls marched into the cafeteria with an immense sign proclaiming their support for Ray and Larry. Posters appeared in numerous strange and inaccessible places. Signs were suspended from the ceiling of Dana Auditorium and hung from the roof of the Union. The climax of the campaign came on Wednesday morning, April 3, when speeches by all the major candidates were given in Dana Auditorium. Interest and en thusiasm ran high as each candi date appealed for the support of the student body. Election day, April 4, saw one of the best turnouts in recent years as the students gave the nod to the team of Bob Davidson and Gary York. Bob Davidson, a rising senior from Statesville, has served as a dorm representative for the past year and is a Dana Scholar. Gary, a husky rising senior from White Plains, New Jersey, won renown last fall on the football team.
