Face Reality Says Gray,
Calls For Realism In Govt.
Charlie Gray, candidate for pres
ident of the student body, said
Wednesday he would follow a "mod
erate" policy if elected president.
Gray is running for that office In
the April 7 elections on the Univer
sity Party ticket.
He said he believed it important
that students know his philosophy
toward student government because
they "will be better able to under
stand my approach to the present
issues and those which will arise."
The moderate policy he expressed
i 1 intrinsic with his belief in a real
istic, yet progressive, student gov
Ills philosophy will enable him in
practice to "face the fact that noth
ing is perfect and approach all prob
lems with the realization that we
live in a practical world and not
in a perfect Utopian society. Too of
ten students approach issues in a
way that on the surface appear
good, but from tha practical side
are usually impossible."
Gray defended his moderate view
point by saying, "I think on this
campus an extreme liberal or an ex
treme conservative would have
many harmful effects. I stand as a
moderate, neither leaning to the
right nor the left."
Wild crusades or untimely ac
tions that tend to cast harsh criti
cisms on an innocent student body
do not conform to the UP candi
date's moderate stand. "The old
saying of 'thinking twice before act
ing once' would be a good slogan
for all student leaders," Gray said.
With a moderate, realistic pro
gram, Gray said he hopes to re
turn student government to the
students. He cited "unrealistic and
sometimes unpopular issues which
have occurred in the past" as hav
ing increased student apathy to the
"The unfortunate political system
on this campus has added coal to
the fire of apathy nlus causing a
psychological barrier to rise up be
tween different parts of the cam
pus," he said.
"Only when student government
can appeal to all students and only
when the campus is again united will
student government achieve the pos
ition it rightly deserves."
Gray said he would unify the cam
pus break down ail barriers be
tween fraternity and non-fraternity
men and take politics from its pro
fessional existence and return it to
Talking further on political par
ties. Gray said the parties should
represent beliefs, not places of res
idence. The presidential candidate pledged
that, if elected, he would represent
the views of the "true" Carolina
student. He also said that his ad
ministration would promote prog
ress in all areas through an under
standing of the problems of all seg
ments of campus.

The UP is advocating a "more
flexible policy toward women's

would promote the modification of
some regulations not involving the
Honor Code or Campus Code. Spe
cifically, the UP will promote a
system of collective late minute viol
ations in dormitory and sorority
houses and a lowering of dormitory
The platform also calls for the
redistricting of Legislature seats
and refers to the inequality of the
number of seats in Town Men's IV
as compared with the interest of
students in that district.
The UP through increased support
to the IDC "would work toward an
enlargement of the dormitory social
program, expansion of the dorm
visiting agreement program, the
addition of social and physical facil

dormitory services, such as janitor
