Smith, Student Party candidate for president of the stu dent body, drew endorsement state ments Saturday from Charlie Hunt ington and Bob Carter. Huntington, who has been acting as campaign adviser to Smith, com mented that the president of the student body, "the most responsi ble position on campus," is charg ed with two major responsibilities. These responsibilities, he said, were: On every question, he must necessarily and infallibly consider Candidates Reminded Of Expenses With election day drawing near Hank Patterson, chairman of the Elections Board, reminded candi dates of their expense account and the student body of ballot counting and of graduate voting. He stated that an itemized des cription of any campaign expenses and expenditures must be turned in to the Elections Board by each candidate on or before 6 p.m. Mon day at the student government of fice in Graham Memorial. "Failure to submit an account of expenditures by Monday at 6 p.m. shall cause a fine of $5 to be levied against the delinquent cand idate," he said. And failure to pay the fine with in 24 hours of its occurence shall result in disqualification. Expense account forms may be obtained in the student government office or from the party chairmen. Patterson also reported that the ballots will be counted Wednesday afternoon at 3 o'clock on the sec ond floor of Graham Memorial. He urged all students to come to Grah am Memorial and help count votes. Election results will be posted in the main lounge in Graham Memorial.

Polls will remain open until 7 p.m. for grad students. Henry Snow Announces As Tar Heel Write-In vinced" Norman Smith embodied the characteristics mentioned. "Norman is fully aware of what the job will entail and I know he is well qualified for the position. "He has worked tirelessly for the students of the University this year.

Student government must Saturday the Henry Snow has announced his candidacy in a write-in campaign for the editorship of The Daily Tar Heel. Snow is a pseudonym for seven teen journab'sm and other interested students. The students are running fcr the post as a corporate body under that name. The name was chosen as a single simple name which can be written on the ballot easily and for its legendary signifi cance among journalism students. The Elections Board, in a meeting Friday, rendered an opinion that this candidate would, in all probability, be ineligible. The Elections Board was pondering yesterday whether they could count Henry Snow bal lots. Hank Patterson, chairman of the Elections Board, said that any de cision of the Elections Board could be appealed to the Student Council. At this meeting, Charlie Sloan an nounced Snow's candidacy. The students who have assumed the pseudnym of Henry Snow include Ihurman W. Worthington Jr., Roy L. Lucas, Stan Brennen, James R. Vance, T. Parker Maddrey, Neil F Murphy, J. Stanford Fisher, Char les E. Flinner, Alan D. Resch, John W. Hubbard, George Hord. and Char les Sloan. The students under the name Snow are seeking to produce a college newspaper which is completely in dependent of any party affiliations, according to campaign manager Charles Flinner. Flinner said "Snow is capable of putting out an inde pendent and responsible newspa per." His experience, or the aggre gate of experience among the stu dents running under his name is sufficient to put out the best of col lege newspapers anywhere." "The Daily Tar Heel is a student newspaper and not a political fact sheet," Flinner added. Snow's -platform consists mainly nniinipr,rnpirp i y m mm nin?yi I i ff r large. To do this, he must think ob jectively on every matter confront ing him. Objective thinking is un doubtably the most challenging 1 part of his job. "2. He must then formulate and initiate the action necessary to ac complish the best possible results in light of his decision. To bring about these results, he must do his utmost, as well as lead his as sociates to do likewise in their respective roles."

"Students are primarily responsible to themselves and their parents for their academic standing, not the university," said Sloan, a spokesman for the group. The other major point the Snow campaign originally tried to make, according to Flinner, is the foolish ness of attempting to elect a com petent editor by popular vote. The Snow campaigners feel that deferred rush is the only real and important issue of the present cam paign. The editorship campaign it ielJ' is a different kind of importance according to the group. "The ability and responsibility of the editor is nd this is the issue of the editor important to the student newspaper ship campaign," said Flinner. He added, "If the students are really interested in a responsible and worthy newspaper they will write the name of Henry Snow on their ballots."
