The selection of officers will be the

legislature for the new session was last
Thursday night when the only business
was the swearing in of the members.
All new committees and chairmen
must be selected because all committees
were dissolved when the old legislature
ended its tenure.

A petition requesting fumigation of

Robert Grady is expected to seek
re-election to the powerful post of

some opposition is expected to develop
to his candidacy.
Gilliam said Wednesday he expects
Gerry Cohen, a leader of the liberal
faction in SL and former chairman of the
Judicial Committee, to oppose Grady.

Gilliam also said he had not
participated in the making up of
slates of candidates for the
positions on each of the five standing
committees. He called for the individual
student legislators to work in their own

"I've decided if someone wants to get

were hesitant but willing to sign. Some
were very eager. A few refused to sign."
Grier said eight of the 1 1 male floor
co-chairmen in Morrison signed the
petition. He said some of the petitions
were still out.
Both Grier and Miss Steenhuis said one
of the chief complaints they heard about
Gilliam was that he ran as an independent
last spring but heads the conservative
coalition in the Student Legislature.
Grier said several people have
expressed interest in running against
Gilliam in the recall election, although no
one has made any formal commitments
since the election has not been called yet.
Gilliam believes the recall is directed
against him personally. "I don't think it
has to do with my representation of
Morrison," he said. "I view it as a
personal attack, but the voters will have
to decide that.
"I intend to run and win this
election," Gilliam added. "It boils down
to a matter of principle. I've got to win."
Gilliam said he thought he would win
since he has been elected in Morrison
Grier said, "If Gilliam wins the
election. I II be perfectly willing to accetp
it. The fact that there are over 200 people
in Morrison who signed the petition
indicated there's a problem, and I just
want to see an election."
