“No comment” was the word
from SG sources about action on

A spokesman said Burt ex
pressed a desire to continue as

column, “The Burt Beat” had
not been received.
The Campus-Town coalition
placed ahead of the other two
parties by a much wider margin

to be a record.
In the contest for the position
of editor of the Campus Echo,
Miss Yvonne Scruggs was a un
animous choice of the voters.
A Buffalo, New York, native,
she became the first student to
become elected editor of the cam
pus publication. Heretofore, the
editor has been appointed by the
president of student government.
This new policy is the result of
a bill recently passed by the Stu
dent Congress. The new editor
campaigned as an independent
candidate and was unopposed.

Palmer is a town student,

Chidley. James became the first
womari vice-president since Miss
Mary McLean served in that
capacity during the late forties.
