Election Thoughts After Mini--What?--
Freshman elections this year are off to an
encouraging start as the ballot offers a choice
for all major offices being sought.
Not so with the vacant Publications Board
position. No student with the necessary 90-
hour requirement registered to run for the
office. The Publications Board is an important
cog in the wheel of organization here and it is
appalling that out of the eligible students not
one wished to spend a portion of his time in
playing influential part in the role of publica
tions on campus.
Likewise in the case of the night student
representatives. The positions open are
important and necessary parts in the running
of student government on campus, and student
government is a vital part of campus life and
activity. Yet, no candidates presented them
selves to serve in these offices.
As it stands voters are to write in candi
dates for the vacant pub board position and the
two open night student representative slots.
The lately lackadaisical Student Party is
throwing all its efforts into a comeback under
the leadership of Charlene Crumpley and Nita
Brown. It is the hope of the Journal staff
that this party is able to accomplish its goal
of affording the University Party stiff compe
tition in the races for offices open on campus.
Perhaps if this point is reached there will
no longer be important offices left unsought by
Note of Thanks
The Green Garter workers are commended
for their diligence and imagination in staging
the first coffee house on campus.
Although the students warmed up slowly and
only filled the house on Friday and Saturday
nights, the Green Garter itself was well ex-
ecuted--except for inexperienced waitresses!
But they are sure to get smoother each time --
another coffee house is planned for December.
The dedication and ingenuity of the Arts
Committee is commended.
The progress of the 49’er beards being
grown on campus is evidence that there are
many experimenters attending school here.
Most have survived the itching stage now --
but it is still not too late too get into the
December 8 is the day of the public naming
of the winner, so there is still a little over a
month in which to grow and trim a beard.
Beards are cropping up everywhere-- defin

moved our students to respond

Anyway, when students were con

question—“After the Mini—
What?’’ or “What will the length
of dresses be in ‘68 or ‘69,’’ it
was evident that our students are
becoming responsive. Shy indivi

One of the current issues on
the American scene is the smoking
of marijuana, particularly where
college students are Involved. Is
this really a problem? Should
“pot” be legalized? Can UNC-C
students really acquire pot without
any trouble? Look for Rod Smith’s
