Phil Edwards, running as an
independent candidate with Stu-j
dent Party endorsement, will be
pitted against David Grigg, the
UP standard bearer and current
student body vice-president, in to
day's presidential election.
In a campaign marked' by little
or no miidslinging, both candi
dates indicated their support ef
the efforts to obtain a new stu
dent union, and spoke at great
length about the alleviation of
problems pertaining to dormitory
Angus Duff was also entered
in the presidential contest, but
withdrew earlier this month be
cause of "lack of support" and
the fact that his campaign had
been "widely misconstrued."
Davis Young and Hank Patter
son, who had been widely men
tioned as possible candidates, both
stated that they would not run
for the top student Government
Edwards, a senior from Siler
City, who will be returning next
year as a special student due tc
a change in major, entered the
race on February 19, stressing his
independent status and declaring
that "the principles of the twe
parties are unacceptable to me . . .
and to many other students."
After receiving SP endorsement
on February 22, Edwards clarified
his independent status by statin?
that he considered the SP's action
to be "an endorsement of my pro
gram. I do not feel that I am ob
ligated to that party any more
than to any other party or group.'
Edwards is a member of the
Student Legislature, Judiciary
Committee, Ways and Means
Committee, IDC Court and IDC
Honor Society. He has also serv
ed as treasurer of the IDC.

E d if or
During the past few days there have been several rumors cir
culated by a few people in an effort to discredit both my character
and my ability to serve as Student Body President, Phil Edwards
declared Monday. I wish to take this opportunity to clarify these
rumors and to emphasize that they were not initiated by either my
opponent. David Grigg, or the University Party.
On of thts rumors is that I have promised specific ap
pointive position to certain individuals. This is both unfounded
and untrue. I can assure every student that there has been no
discussion of presidential appointments with anyone.
Also, I have been accused of mishandling I.D.C. funds while
serving as treasurer of that body. If this were s it is a fact which
should have been brought before the students openly and not through
a whisper campaign. However, I deny that such is true. Further
more. I would like to point out that one of the people who has
done much tut spread this rumor is the same person who, about a
' month ago, tried to persuade me to run for Treasurer of the Stu
By employing these rumors, this individual managed to per
suade some members of the I.D.C. to sign a letter which he com
posed in support of my opponent. I do not wish to contend that
this was the sole cause for the support of my opponent by these
persons. At the same time, however, I maintain that this was an
important factor in their decisions. I have consistently refused to
ask any member of the I.D.C. to openly support me as a Student
Body presidential candidate, for I felt that my position in that
body would give me an unfair advantage over my opponent.
I wish to state that I hold no ill-feeling toward those who
have supported my opponent, and in fact I am pleased to see
them taking an active part in this election. I appreciate great
ly the efforts of those who have supported me, and hope for
their continued support if I am elected.
I wish each student to examine very carefully the issues at
stake in this election before voting. It is vital that each student
exercises his right to vote today.
The following is a statement to the Daily Tar Heel by David
Grigg, U. P. candidate for president of the student body:
During the past three weeks I have tried to speak with as
many of you as possible. I have been through almost all of the
men's dorms speaking with individuals and have talked with many
However, it has, of course, been impossible to meet every
one. In any case, I can only hope that you will give me and all
of the UP candidates your earnest consideration today when
you go to vote.
Also in the past weeks I have outlined my ideas concerning
several areas with which I think student government should be
concerned next year. I would like to summarize them briefly.
First of all, I think the most important project student gov
ernment should be concerned with next year is in working with
the administration toward getting a new student union. This is a
project which many students and administration officials are en
Secondly, I am concerned about the gross lack of social,
recreational and study facilities in our dormitories. I have
several ideas in mind which I believe will help alleviate this
situation. Also I am interested in the whole realm of academic
. and all aspects of our daily life at Carolina.
Last,, but also important, I hope to work with sororities and
fraternities with the problems they face. Furthermore, I would
like to add that I realize that these interest areas I have mentioned
are but a part of student government's activities. It is important
to emphasize that many of the things student government will do
next year are not issues now; perhaps none of us are aware of
them. Our student body officers will simply have to adjust to situ
ations and take advantage of opportunities as they arise.
Actually, student government far transcends our campus. Even
though I believe we should first be concerned with the immediate
problems of students and student government here in Chapel Hill,
we must also be concerned with the national and international.
This past year the student body officers of UNC represented Caro
lina from Canada to Cuba, from New York to Illinois.
Next year the situation will be similar. Our student body
president and the other officers must be representative. They
will be speaking for us and representing us wherever they go.
I hope that everyone will give me and what I have said through
out this campaign their careful thought and. consideration.
That is all I can ask. I know what the job is. I believe I can
do it, and I hope the students will give me a chance to try.
"Realizing that the editorship of The Daily Tar Heel is not a
carefree, casual job, I have been forthright and conscientious dur
ing my campaign," Ed Riner said Monday afternoon.
The 21-year-old candidate for editor of The Daily Tar Heel
said he had tried to state his policies and to explain the fact of
running the paper, as clearly as possible, to the student body.
"When I announced my candidacy three weeks ago, I stated
my basic policy of making the DTH a first-rate campus paper,
not a second-rate commercial paper. Since my initial announce
ment, I have elaborated upon this basic platform."
' I want to edit a paper with more campus news and more cam
pus editorials. However, as I have stated from the beginning, I
would include a news-in-brief column on the front page to give cap
sule reports on the national, international and state news," the
journalism major stated.
Other than the news-in-brief column, Riner's platform has in
cluded the following changes in an effort to provide a top newspa
per: a daily ' Check List" of campus activities; a circulation survey
to find out the best means for improving the distribution of the
paper; a weekly "Tar Heel of the Week" feature; a weekly "Tar
Heel Town Hall," (inquiring photographer feature); an increased
amount of features throughout the paper; an earnest attempt to
increase the sports staff in order to provide greater coverage of
minor sports and intra-murals; and an editorial page which would
have more general interest to the campus.
"The editorial page should be a balance between the light and
the serious. To continue the character of the paper, page two must
reflect the various beliefs, interests and desires of the student body.
This can only be accomplished through letters to the editor, the
editorials and columns written by interested students," the rising
senior from Rocky Mount stated.
Riner's experience ranges from editor of his high school
newspaper to work in almost every department of The Rocky
Mount Telegram, as well as editor of the 1959 UNC News, the
summer school paper, and one and a half years as assistant news
editor and co-news editor of the DTH.
Riner concluded his statement by thinking the many people
"who have worked for and with me during my campaign." Speci
fically he named Keith Smith, Tony Salinger and Swag Grimsley
(campaign managers) and Edsel Odom, Susan Lewis, Otto Funder
burk. Jack Spain, Pat Morgan, Jinny von Schilling Tommy Phil
lips, Ren Britt, Peter Ness and Luanne Hobbs.
Jonathan Yardley, candidate for the editorship of The Daily
Tar Heel, yesterday summed up his objectives for the student
newspaper as follows:
1. A "reorientation of perspective so that The Daily Tar Heel
once again becomes a student paper rather than the plaything of
the editor or any of the staff members." Yardley emphasized his
desire for added student contribution to Vhe paper and said that
he will seek out more student columnists and reporters. ,
2, The candidate stressed his dissatisfaction with the cur
rent world news policy of The Daily Tar Heel and said that he
intends to keep such coverage limited to a "World News In
Brief" eclumn except when a story of exceptional interest
warrants more than perfunctory attention.
3. Yardley said that he is currently considering a plan by
which he feels he can noticabiy increase the sports staff and thus
give students the coverage he promised during the course of the
campaign. He repeated his desire to increase attention given minor
sports and intra-murals and to run short wire features such as
major league standings which he feels would be of great interest
Id many students.
4. The rising senior from Chatham. Va., listed some additions
he would make to the paper in order to better serve the student
Among those he mentioned were: television listings and movie
schedules daily; the replacement of "Covering the Campus" with
a front pag survey of all events taking place S-on the campus,
feature articles on people in the University and Chapel Hill whose
contributions to the student body "have been consistent and meri
torious." 5.Yardley, discussing the editorial page, said that he in
tends to run a monthly survey of "some campus problem of
importance to all students" such as he advisor system, over
crowded dormitory rooms, and the honor system. "Through
these factual studies," He said. The Daily Tar Heel can present
a basis upon which students can make their own decisions
about such problems."
The candidate added that he has tried not to make editorial
policy an issue of the campaign, preferring to stand on his own
capabilities for the position. He said, however, that he could at
all times promise to write on the basis of facts, and to search for
the facts in cases where he might not be informed.
6. Yardley reiterated his desire to make the Daily Tar Heel
a campus paper, and said that "the paper belongs to the students,
not to the editor of the administration."
In conclusion Yardley urged every student to vote in today's
election, and to vote for the person he feels most qualified for the
