I can make no promise of
sweeping structural reform of
SGC; there is no need for it.:
Council IS active and close to stu-1
dent problems. What Counci'
lacks is Councilmen willing to
work hard and students willing tc
support them when they do init-i
iate action. SGC must earn the
student support which will give it
the power to act.
I want a student bookstore, I
want lower rents for students, -
want a student-oriented quad-!
rangle system, I want higher stu-
dent salaries, I want SGC-spon-'
sored weekend entertainment, ?
want academic reform, and I wil'
work for these things as council-
man. But student government
can't function without interested
students, both supporting its pro-j
grams and working effectively on
SGC committees to accomplish,
these programs. Will you support
these programs, as members of thef
student body? With the proper
leadership, I think you will. SGC
has short-changed its name anf'I
function because it has overlooked
the source of its power, the stu-
I plan to bring to Council the
realizationhthat it can no longer
exist as the semi-detached head
of a disinterested student body.j
The two must be brought together
must support each other, and
must realize each other's import
ance. When SGC leaders the way
to this realization, Student Gov-
ernment Council can be and will
be an important, dynamic force
at the University of Michigan.,

Twenty-four candidates are running for Council: four for
executive office and twenty for Council members. The two slates
of president and executive vice-president candidates are Gary
Cunningham and Harlan Bloomer, and Robert Golden and Ellen
Buchalter. Students may vote for one of these two slates. The
twenty candidates for Council members are Chris Mansfield,
Susan Ness, Paul Pavlik, Donald Resnick, Steven Schwartz,
David Sloan, Myles Stern, Harvey Wasserman, Jack Winder, Ken
Zuckerman, John Bookston, Paula Cameron, Stephen Daniels,
Mickey Eisenberg, Rick Field, Rick Qentry, Larry Hauptman,
Neil Hollenshead, and Randy Jones. Under the limited vote sys-
tem, students may vote for one-half the number of Council
vacancies plus one, or five candidates.
Seven people are candidates for the Michigan delegation to
the 18th annual USNSA Congress to be held in Washington this
August. The seven are Lee Hornberger Jr., Yee C. Chen, Richard
Shortt, Judy Klein, Barry Bluestone, Richard Horevitz, and
Neil Berkson. Students may vote for four.
The offices of president, vice-president, and secretary-
treasurer of the LSA, Engineering, and Business Administration
senior classes are up for election. Only those students who are
members of the Class of '66 may vote for the senior officers of
their respective schools. These are students who entered the
University or another school as a freshman during the 1962-63
school year.
Four people are running for the vacancies on the Board:
Robert Shenkin, John Lorenzen Jr., Philip Sutin, and Robert
Bartol. Students may vote for three.
Two people are running for the vacancy on the Board: Rich-
ard Volk, and Marvin J. Freedman. Students will vote for one.
The polls will be open from 8:45 a.m. to 5:10 p.m. at South
Quad, West Quad, East Quad, Markley, Undergraduate Library,
Freize Building, Business Administration Building, Engineering
Arch and the Fishbowl.
Campaigning within fifty (50) feet of any polling place when
it is open on Election Day is forbidden.
The SGC candidates will be selected under the limited vote
system of voting. All students enrolled in the University may
vote on presentation of ID and Winter 1965 insert card. The
voter votes for a candidate simply by X-ing the box next to the
candidate's name. Pen or pencil will be acceptable but only if
clearly legible. The cross of the X must fall within the box to
validate the ballot.
Write-in candidates are permitted and are subject to all
elections rules as enumerated in the Code of Election's Rules.
All required materials for write-ins must be submitted to the
Election's Director no later than 8 p.m. on Election Day.
(From SGC Code of Election Rules, Adopted April 22, 1964):
Section 7 (b) No person serving at a poll while it is open
shall give any advice or instructions to a voter as to the candi-
dates or questions to be selected or resolved respectively.
d) No person shall in any way or form cast or cause or en-
courage to be cast more than one ballot for each office or ques-
tion for each v'ter, or cast or cause or encourage to be cast any
ballot not printed under the authority of the Committee.

Student Government Council is
basically an effective legislating
representative of the student
body. But, as such, it requires stu-
dent support, which has been se-
riously lacking. It is my belief
that by expanding the committee
system and making it a more inte-
gral part of SGC, and by improv-
ing the public relations of SGC to
the student body, the Council's ef-
fectiveness can be considerably en-
hanced. The chairman of the

function of SGC alone. These im-
portant needs can be realized only
through a joint cooperation of all
student activities organizations
This should include not only SGCj

The function of SGC should be
limited to a role of a service or-
ganization to improve the imme-
diate welfare of the student. Long
range plans sliould not be a pres-

A program which SGC should
adopt and one I would pledge to
support as an independent - un-
aligned with any faction - is asj

Office of Student Affairs-
University Students:
SGC should represent the stu-
dent before the administration.}
and not the administration before
the student. The student deserves
to have prior announcements of
policy changes and the reasons
behind them. To increase the stu-
dent confidence and understand-
ing, the University records should
be open for inspection and the
possibility of a detailed student
handbook should be investigated.
Finally, conferences concerning
the Student Grievances Package
must be continued.
Off-Campus Housing:
With junior apartment privileg-
es complicating the rental situa-
tion, SOC should further increase
its emphasis of the new Off-Cam-
