SGA Elections Held
Student Government elections
were held on Thursday, March
15, to the delight of some candi
dates and disillusionment of
others. The presidential race was
one of the more tightly contested
campaigns, with three candidates
for the position. Of the 687
ballots cast, Larry Pike received
296, Tom Davis collected 203 and
David Gasperson gathered 170.
Since a majority is needed to
constitute a victory a run-ott
was held on Monday, March 19
between Pike and Davis. The
run-off produced 608 voters
with Pike having the winning
edge with 393 votes campared
to Davis’s 213.
Ken Chamlee defeated Jim
Manchester for the vice-presi
dential position. In the only
other contested race Lloyd
Keller slipped by Sara Traylor
for the treasurer’s post. Origi
nally, it was felt Traylor had won

not been tallied by those count-

This past weekend
marked a new era in
the history of
women's sign out pro
cedures. After the
Student Affairs Coun
cil passed the "enve
lope" procedure, the
final decision was
left to Dr. Bentley.
The procedure was
passed and as a re
sult, women residents
carried out the enve
lope method for sign
ing out.
As stated in the
past, each girl was
given some envelopes
that replaced the old
sign-out cards. The
envelope would con
tain the girl's des
tination and on the
outside the date and
time of her departure
and date and time of
her return. The en
velope would then re
mained sealed unless
an emergency situa
tion arose and the
girl needed to be no
tified or the girl
failed to come in or
notify the college
within one hour after
curfew of the day de
signated as her re
turn.
Violations of the
new sign-out include:
opening of an enve
lope by an authorized
person without cause,
opening of an enve
lope by an unautho
rized person, failure
to give proper desti-

Money
Allotted
The Communications Board
held a meeting on Tuesday morn
ing, March 20, to divide money
alloted to the student publica
tions media. The lump sum of
$550.00 was given by SGA to
the board to be divided between
the various student medias.
The Cadenza, Radio Station and
Hilltop had made previous
appeals to SGA for certain a-
mounts of money. The board
decided unanimously to allot
the money in the following
manner: Hilltop, $220; Radio
Station, $200; and the Cadenza,
$130. Needless to say all three
areas of the media were pleased
and satisfied with the board’s
decision.
