; Letter From the Editor
1 wish to express to all of you my deep appreciation of your support
during the election. In serving as editor for next year, I pledge to you
my constant efforts to make The Guilfordian a newspaper of which
Guilford College can be truly proud.
At this time it would seem appropriate to make a few remarks con
cerning the policy of The Guilfordian for the coming year.
We shall constantly strive to keep all news stories strictly non-parti
san. There is no place on a college campus for distortion of news to suit
a particular bias.
We are fortunate in finding an extremely able sports editor, and in
tend to increase coverage in this field considerably. Sports stories, it is
admitted, may be slightly biased, but in our favor.
Club news is the responsibility of the clubs as well as the newspaper.
If possible, reports on meetings and activities of the various campus
groups should be prepared by the club. If this is impossible, The Guil
fordian will supply reporters to cover this news. Clubs should remember
that announcements of future plans are more important than reports of
activities that are already over.
In editorial policy, we shall strive to fulfill our objective to keep the
paper "constructive and responsible." Constructive criticism on campus
issues is important, but we shall not forget to give credit where credit
is due as well. Editorial cartoons will be introduced at appropriate
times. The Senator, to be sure, will continue his reactionary mutterings.
All opinions from students will be welcome in the "Letters to the Edi
tor" column. As in the past, The Guilfordian will continue to be strong
ly in favor of controversy.
Commentary and criticism on how we are running the paper is al
ways appreciated. The Guilfordian is your paper. Let us know what
A newspaper cannot be completely run by a handful of editors. In
order to do the best job possible, your help and support are essential.
There is plenty of room for many more workers, and staff positions are
still open. The Guilfordian can be only as good a newspaper as you are
willing to make it.

The Guilfordian's pleasure at the vigorous and enthusiastic cam
paign last month was dampened somewhat by one unfortunate aspect.
There are entirely too many people on the ballot.
We wonder how many students casually bounced over to the Union
between classes, hoping to get their voting done in ten minutes, only to
find they were ten minutes late to class instead, after wading through
four solid pages of aspirants for office, many if not most of whom they
The counting of the votes is a monstrosity. Despite the fact that the
counting began at four o'clock when the polls closed, a number of peo
ple had to work straight through dinner to finish the job.
Why is it that everyone is expected to vote on such things as officers
of the International Relations Club? It is because the IRC, like many
other campus organizations, receives money from the student activities
fund; and the school feels that the student body as a whole should have
some say in how this money is spent.
Devices have been worked out to evade the system. A club can elect
its officers in advance, and then submit its slate on a yes-or-no ballot.
But it is foolish for a club to have to resort to such tactics.
Obviously, the student body as a whole is interested only in the
major offices, predominantly the student government offices. Restrict
ing the ballot to only these offices would be a convenience and a relief
to us all.

Since this is the first issue of our new section, we thought it appro
priate to publish some poetry of a new poet on campus. This poet would
appreciate any criticism anyone would like to offer him and for this
reason wishes to remain anonymous until the next issue of The Guil
fordian. Please send all criticism to the "Letters to the Editor" column
of the paper.

On the Political Scene
We have recently received some interesting literature from a politi
cal organization known as SABER. This organization was started at the
University of Denver in January of this year, and has as its purpose the
promotion of legislation which would give tax relief for college ex
penses. It seems bills have been introduced into both the Senate and
the House, the former by the newly-elected Republican Senator from
Colorado, Peter Dominick, and the latter by Representative Frank Bow
of Ohio, providing for tax credits and deductions for college expenses.
The objective of SABER—Student Association for Better Educational
Relief—is to promote passage of these bills by encouraging folks to
write to their congressmen about them.
SABER is pushing the organization of chapters across the country.
We feel that this is sensible and worthy legislation, and that it deserves

It would be unfortunate, however, if Guilford students were pre
sented with only one side of the picture. The establishment of a Young
Republicans Club at this time would be an excellent idea. The oppor

debates, panel discussions and other political activities would do won
ders in increasing a proper citizens' awareness of the issues of our times.
Up to now, however, the Republicans have been dragging their
feet. Come on, GOP, up and at 'em!
