Drawdy Elected Frosh President,
Ferrell, Kvingedal Win Positions
Freshmen elections are over,
and the leaders are now busy in
the newly-acquired positions.
By an overwhelming majority,
Butch Drawdy became president
of the class of 1970.

positions which he held, he listed

Mike Ferrell was elected vice-
president, to represent his class
before the Senate. If a major bill
appears on the Senate floor, Fer

should be taken.

vice-president , but it is limited
because of the large number of
students which should be can
