MARY’S TO HOLD MOCK GOP CONVENTION Chris Crowley and Nancy Richardson, Co-Chairmen St. Mary’s will be the scene of a moek-Republican convention May 7th and 8th. This event is being presented to give students an opportunity to experience the nomination of Presidential can didates and to participate in reg istration and voting. The Current Politics Club and American government classes, un der the direction of Mr. Roberts, are in the process of putting the convention together. Each gov ernment student has selected a state to represent. Chris Crow ley, president of the Young Re publican Club, and Nancy Rich ardson, president of YDC, are act ing as student co-ordinators. Each student has the responsi bility of finding out how her se lected state will vote in the GOP convention in August. The main question she has to answer is who the delegates will back as presi dential and vice-presidential can didates. In addition, each state chairman has to find out the vot ing procedures for her delega tion: As a result, letters have gone out to leading political officials all over the United States asking such questions as: “Will you have a favorite son candidate?” “What candidate will you switch to if yours begins to fade ?” “What peo ple are influencing your delega tion’s votes?” St. Mary’s students have already received letters from such political figures as Governor Knowles of Wisconsin and Sena tor Fong of Hawaii. The convention in May is open to anyone on campus who wishes to participate. On April 29th and 30th, registration of voters will take place. Registration booths will be open under tlie direction of Beth Godwin. Anyone may register, but she will have to do so in compliance with North Car olina procedures which include a literacy test. On the evening of May 7th, the convention Avill open with a key note speech by Chris Crowley. Georgia Herbert will act as na tional GOP chairman, and Jill Bumgarner will be the reading clerk.
