"Student problems should be

with the American ideal,' and said

Julian Mason, SP candidate for
the vice-presidency of the stu
dent body, yesterday issued the
following campaign statement:
"As most of us know, the Stu
dent legislature is the weakest
ink in our student .government
today. It was designed to be the
most important link .between the
student body and student govern
ment. It has shirked this respon
sibility continually.
"I must admit that during my
three terms in that body I have
often been guilty of this too, as
has every legislator at one time
or another. However, during those
three terms I have been able to
see the potentialities of the Stu
dent Legislature and have be
come familiar with every possible
means of making it become what
it should ' be.
"To me the Student Legisla
ture should be a 'standing army
constantly organized to express
student opinion on matters which
concern every student, such as
possible Saturday classes, possi
ble tuition raises, matters of cur
riculum, and matters of the ex
penditure of block fees.
"Today the Legislature is hot
in a position to do that because
it has lost contact with the stu
dents who elected it. How can
this situation be remedied? By

petition to run for president of the

Board. It was rejected, due to the
academic eligibility requirements,
and Pace appealed to the council

"I would like to have an op

needs. Perhaps it would be wise
to move its meetings back to Ger

Furnishing Of
Social Rooms
Ken Barton, SP candidate for
president, yesterday released the
following statement:
"During the past three years
under the Student party admin
istrations over half the dormito
ries have received social rooms
but the hopes of completing this
program and the hopes of furnish
ing these rooms with nice furn
iture in the near future is dim
unless we change the present pro
cedure. "I propose that , we borrow
money next year and if at all
possible use some of the profits
of the Book Ex that are now
under investigation as a means
of completing this program.
"In this manner set up a revolv
ing fund through which we will
be able to pay back any money
that we borrow and above all
keep the social rooms in good
shape. Above all I would work
with the IDC to complete the
program, but propose that our
goal in social '.rpoms be to com
plete the program fully for all
dorms in the coming year."

Gross Claims
Ken Penegar
Backed Down
Ed Gross, UP nominee " for
secretary-treasurer of the student
body, yesterday issued the fol
lowing campaign statement:
"It has come to my attention
that r my opponent -f or .the secre-tary-treasurership
of the student
body, Mr. Penegar, has come out
.in favor of retaining student block
fees at their present level. I be
lieve that such a stand is exactly
opposite from the stand which he
took in the dorm discussion in
Graham dorm last Wednesday
night, at which time he advocated
getting more money for Student
Government, "through a raise in
block fees, if necessary.'
"At that time I stated that I
was opposed to raising block fees,
and hoped that additional money
could be raised through obtaining
some of the profits from the Uni
versity Book Exchange. Now I
find that my opponent has. come
out with the very same plank,
trying to pass it off as an original
idea. Apparently it must have
been a good one!
"It is my belief that, through
judicious management, of the
funds available through block
fees, enough money can be found
to operate student government
properly. I hope that some money
can be saved from other items in
order to re-establish Tarnation,
possibly on a half subscription,
