Illinois captured two significant
sports championships. SIU, which
is rapidly becoming a sports pow-

Salukis gave more than sufficient
indication that they are the class

Southern Illinois easily won the
mideast regional at Wheaton, Il-
linois yesterday, piling up an im-
pressive 189.0 points. The regional
victory taps SIU as the overwhelm-

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE CLASS OF 1968
Outside of their responsibility to arrange for the class gift, the senior class officers
are, during their senior year, functionally defunct. Because of this, the elections for class
officers become popularity contests of "who is more well-liked" or "who knows more people."
While popularity reflects on some of a candidate's qualifications for an executive office, it
seems to me that unless there can be some meaning or function attached to these positions,
a rational justification for electing three officers in each college is tenuous. The problem is,
then, what can the-officers do? When it is realized that the University has more alumni than
any other school, located in various graduate and professional schools and occupations, a
possible answer to thel above question may lie in the senior class's relations with the various
Graduating seniors, in applying to graduate schools and for positions in firms, often
find themselves at a disadvantage, not only in receiving strong faculty recommendations, but
especially in finding faculty members who, as in small schools, will work to present and
support a student's qualifications to an admissions committee or a personnel manager. While
personal recommendations cannot compensate for scholastic achievements, they can often
represent a crucial difference between an acceptance and a rejection.
Having spoken to representatives of the Alumni Association, I feet that there is a
strong possibility that by estabilishing better relations with alumni groups and giving them
information to understand a senior's qualifications, the alumni may be able to wield influence
and give the Michigan senior the personal advantage that the student from the small school
enjoys in strong faculty recommendations.
This proposal is, of course, of an experimental nature with may details tobe worked
out. There is, moreover, no inherent guarantee of success. At worst, though, an attempt leaves
the senior class no worse off than before. At best, it can significantly offset a disadvantage
inherent in a large school.
