DISCOUNT BOOKSTORE
RECEIVES APPROVAL
By ROBERT KRAFTOWITZ
Students voted overwhelmingly against the language
requirement in partial returns on the Student Government
Council sponsored referendum yesterday.
The partial returns also indicated overwhelming support
for the second referendum, which proposes that SGC expand
its discount store to include a discount book store. The
referendum called for initial funding of the book store by a
special assessment of $1.75 per student for the fall, 1969
semester only.
With the first day's balloting tallied, the vote was 2194
to 887 for abolition of the language requirement. The vote on
the book store referendum
was 2679 to 685.

A dispute over the counting of the votes threw the elec-

in the method of the tabulation of votes.
The president-vice president slates of Howard Miller-
Mark Rosenbaum, Bob Nelson-Mary Livingston, and Marty
McLaughlin-Mark Van der Hout are apparently still in the
running.
According to Bob Neff, SGC vice president, the error was

The Universitys experiment
with long distance calling from
dorm rooms is over-at least for
a while.
Communications manager Wil-
liam Turner explained last night
that the experiment is being dis-
continued after one day because
the number of long distance calls
made by dormitory residents "was
jamming the Centrex system com-
pletely."

The counting of the second
day's balloting has been delayed
until today because of the large
number of miSmarked ballots.
Election Director Dale Jurcisin
said the ballots would be gone
through by hand in order to cor-
rect the mistakes.

,Last night, however, after two
of the six candidates were elimi-

counted all first, second, third and

This resulted in many ballots be-

candidates.
Elections Director Dale Jurcisin
announced last night that elec-
tions officials will meet today at
noon in the SGC offices to recount
all ballots and determine the
winner.
Although a computer was not
used to tabulate the vote, com-
puter sheets served as ballots and
were fed through a mechanical
sorter which employed an optical
scanner to read the ballots. Tabu-

elections officials.

Ron Thompson, chairman of the
Black Students Union, and Daily
Editor Henry Grix met yesterday
with University President Robben
Fleming 'to discuss the current
controversy over Daily editorial
policy.
At the meeting, Thompson et-
plained the new BSU position-
that a new all-student board for
student publications be established
which would determine editorial
policy and staff appointments.
In a statement issued last night,
Thompson said, "It is our opin-
ion that the Daily does not nor
foes it intend to ever represent
the interests of anyone ion this
campus but the 11 senior editors.
Thompson also challenged the
recent ruling by the Regents
which gave outgoing Daily senior
editors the sole power to appoint
their successors. Previously, t h e
former Board in Control of Stu-
dent Publications selected the new
editors on the recommendation
of the outgoing seniors..
- "If the Daily were owned by
the 11 editors then our Alterna-
tive would be simple, not read
it. However, The Daily is owned
by the Regents of this Univer-
sity. In other words, The Daily is
just as much ours as it is the 11
senior editors'," Thompson con-
tinued. "As all other units of this
University, therefore, The Daily
must strive to be representative
of the University community."
"Unfortunately," the statement
said, "the Regents of this Univer-
sity have passed legislation t h a t
will continue this misrepresenta-
tion. Their ruling allows for the
editors to have complete freedom
in the selection of their successors
and in determining editorial pol-
icy."
Grix responded that The Daily,
