No Verdict Is Rendered
By Tar Heel Press, Time
By DOUG EISELE
In a surprise move, the Student Council yesterday agreed to hear
an appeal from vice presidential nominee John Brooks who previously
had been ruled ineligible for spring elections by the Elections Board.
Brooks appeal at first refused by th student court was to come
before the Council at a special called session beginning at 9 o'clock
last night. A decision was expected later in the evening.
The surprise move threw a monkey wrench into campaign plans
for the Student Party, whose advisory board had met Tuesday night
to name Ralph Cummings its candidate for student body vice presi
dent to run in place of Brooks.
Cummings' nomination came shortly after Student Council Chair
man Mac Patton said his body would not hear Brooks' appeal from
an Elections Board decision that Brocks was ineligible to run in spring
elections April 1.
