the interest appeared lag
ging as usual as the per
iod for filing of candi

campaign called for the

the Student Government

Monday, March 18th, and

March 27th, but as the
filing period neared its
close there was nothing
like a full slate of offi

Snider Speaks
As Guest Of
Arts Forum
William D. 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. He has served as
a president of the Nation
al Editorial Association
and is a member of the
American Newspaper As
sociation.
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

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.
The Burlington indus
tries official used the top
ic of “Operations Re
search” as he spoke to
student majors in busi
ness administration, ac
counting, economics and
mathematics. The gene
ral public was also in
vited to hear him.
In his discussion,Mar-
tin traced the develop
ment of the term “Op
erations Research” and
presented problem situa
tions by which teams are
developing mathematical
models to assist in man
agement decisions.
He stressed the seven
important steps in prob
lem solving and pointed
out that such research
has come to the front re
cently due to the ability
of computers to handle
more data and to move it
at greater speeds. He
called computers the key
to research techniques.
