The schedule for the annual student political campaign called for the filing of candidates for the Student Government Association to open on Monday, March 18th, and to close on Wednesday, March 27th, but as the filing period neared its close there was nothing like a full slate of offi cers.

Snider, edi tor of the GreensboroDai- ly News and the Greens boro Daily Record, spoke Tuesday night, March 19th, in the banquet room of McEwen Memorial Dining Hall at Elon Col lege, appearing as a guest of the student spon sored Liberal Arts For um. Snider, who is recog nized as one of the lead ers in North Carolina newspaper activities, spoke on the topic of “Youth In America: Nir vana Now or Redemption at the Green Stamp Store,” with a goodly group hearing him and attending. A reception was held in West Dorm Parlors after the lecture. The guest speaker is a native of Rowan County, a graduate of the Univer sity of North Carolina and had worked with news papers in Salisbury as public information di rector for the state high way commission prior to joining the staff of the Greensboro Daily News. He served as an as sociate editor of the Greensboro paper until 1965 when he assumed the post of editor that he now holds.

During his journalistic career, Snider has been actively identified with li brary improvement in North Carolina and has been closely identified with work of the Child ren’s Home Society and other civic and humani tarian interests. The period between March 18th and March 27th was set for filing of candidates for the offices of president, vice-pres ident and treasurer of the Student Government As sociation, along with the listing of candidates for leaders of the rising sophomore, junior and senior classes. As late as March 22nd, the filing for all offices was still far from com plete, and present offi cers of the student or ganizations felt that a number of prospective candidates were holding up their listing until the last minute, perhaps un der the feeling that such delay was smart politics. If more than two can didates should be listed for any of the SGA of ma jor class offices,then a primary balloting will be held this coming Monday, April 1st, followed by the final election for all of fices next Wednesday. The final filing for seats in the Student Sen ate will be delayed until after major SGA and class officers are elected,and any student having a 2.00 grade average may file for the Senate until next (Continued on page 4) Martin Guest For Business Seminar Here John Martin, of Greens boro, operations re search manager for the Burlington Industries in the Gate City, was a guest speaker on the Elon cam pus recently, appearing under the auspices of the college’s department of business administration for a special seminar.
