Ward Denies Part In Frosh Mix-Up In an official statement late yesterday, Bill Ward, defeated candidate for president of the freshman class, declared he "had nothing to do" with any of the present aftermath shots by both freshman parties. His statement read : "I was defeated for the office of presi dent of the freshman class in the frosh election of some days ago. My opponents in the elec tion did not agree with me poli tically nor did I agree with them. However, as I stated in the meeting of the freshman committees Friday night, I am not going to try to go against President Shore and his ad ministration. Before the elec tion, I stated that I was behind the freshman class 100 per cent; the same is true now. I want to establish and make known my neutrality in the present pro ceedings."
