Mfaking Repor
The President's Commisiono hI Role of Students in esearch




Decision-Making yesterday submitted its final report to
University President Robben W. Fleming.

The report calls for sweeping changes in campus-wide
government including the formation of a tri-partite legisla- artici patl on

Michael Koeneke, '69 Ad, was apparently elected presi-
dent of Student Government Council by an overwhelming
margin in an unusually large turnout for an SGC election,
Koeneke and his vice-presidential running mate, Robert
Neff, '69, claimed victory as they rolled up a 2-1 margin over
second place Mark Schreiber, '69, and Andrew Quinn, '69.
Koeneke said last night "the first thing we're going to
do is to turn to the financial plight of the University. Some-
thing will have to be done to show the state legislature that
we need more money. A lot of students are really going to
be hurt if out-of-state tuition goes up $348 next year."
Koeneke proposed that pressure be placed on the legis,
lature through the coordinated action of students, alumni
and parents.
Koeneke added that he was "pleased with the large
turnout," perhaps one of the largest SGC elections in history.
