Steve Saunders, governor ofMorehead
Residence College, was elected chairman
of the Residence College Federation
(RCF) in Tuesday's campus-wide
The results of the race, which were
delayed several hours because of
problems with the new computer system
for counting votes, gave Saunders 1 ,797
votes to top Robert Wilson, governor of
Morrison Residence College, who received
Votes for the RCF chairman, chairman
of the Association of Women Students
(AWS) and president of the Men's
Athletic Association were tabulated
David Ruff in, chairman of the
Elections Board, said delay for the three
offices, which was about an hour longer
than the delay for the three other offices
on the computer ballot, was caused by
the printing of the card.

1 would win by so much," an exuberant
joe Stallings said after defeating four rival
candidates by an impressive margin to
win the student body presidency.
Stallings collected 2,448 votes in an
unofficial count to gain 60 per cent of
the total votes cast.
His nearest opponent was Jim Geddie,
ho received 927 votes. Jim Flynt got
85 votes. Richard Stoner eot 326 and
Pete Tripodi trailed with 86 votes.
To say I am gratified is an
understatement," Stallings continued.
"But winning is more than a personal
thing. It places a large responsibility on

it was re-programmed, Ruff in said.
Winners of the other two races were:
Tom Pope, who received 2,193 votes
to top Bart Menser, 544, won the
presidency of the Men's Athletic
- Cathy Cauthorne, a member of the
executive board of AWS, was unopposed
and received 1,516 votes to win the
chairmanship of AWS.
The winners of the races for secretary
of the student body and the president of
the Women's Athletic Association have
not yet been determined.
Ruffin said that he hopes to have the
ballots for those two posts tabulated by
the end of the week. No candidates filed
for either post, and a number of names
were submitted as write-in candidates.
Probably no candidate for secretary
will receive a majority of the votes
because no one filed, Ruffin said, but a
run-off election will not be required
because new election laws do not require
the secretary to receive a majority.

products cheaper than Student Stores.

establishing a student co-op," Stallings
Asked why the students turned out in
such large numbers to vote, Stallings cited
the campaigns' ideas and workers' efforts
as key factors.
"I would like to express my gratitude
to the many people who worked for me,"
he said. "However, the important thing
now is not who the winners are, but what
they do in the next year."
Stallings offered apologies for the large
numbers of posters distributed for him all
over campus. Stallings said he would
begin immediately tearing them down.

"That secrecy has been probably, in
psychological terms, the most
psychologically oppressive part of being
gay," Coleman continued.
"It is, of course, the one thing the Gay

Coleman added that "A movement of

leaves out too many steps." The ultimate

different kinds of transitional steps to
accomplish those goals."
Coleman's talk was followed by a
