andburg takes steps'
) curb SGC havoc

Chicano candidate urges minority unity

By PAUL TERWILLIGER
Student Government Council
President Carl Sandburg last night
announced a series of actions ap-
parently aimed at curbing disor-
der and fiscal confusion recently
experienced by the Council.
Speaking at the weekly SGC
meeting, Sandburg, who is in his
second week as president, made it

presentation. "I've got a place for
it. I have a shelf at home with
trophies on it."
Justice does need a shelf for all
the honors hehas won. He played
in two softball world champion-
ships and was chosen four times
for the softball all-star team. Be-
-ing named to the hall of fame was
"all a matter of time," Justice
said last night.
The Bursley cafeteria served a
soul food feast for the banquet
featuring baked ham and yams,
barbecued chicken, chitterlings
with "Eddie's" special hot relish,
black-eyed peas, corn on the cob,
fresh collard greens, and a host of
other delicacies.
The honors paid to Justice
came to an abrupt close, however,
when WRCN representatives beck-
oned students to check raffle tic-
ket stubs to see if they had won a
Gladys Knight and the Pips album.
But Justice's evening went un-
tainted. "The night was fine, the
dinner was fine, and this trophy
was something else," he said, shak-
ing his head and heading off to-
ward the dance floor.

clear that he had spent a lot of
time organizing his office and that
he would look with disfavor on po-
litical stunts in Council.
IN AN EFFORT to stabilize.
SGC's financial situation, Sandburg
has put a freeze on all allocations
made by the Council and clamped
tight security on use of SGC tele-
phones and Xerox machines.
Sandburg said at last night's
meeting that he lacks information
on the Council's finances. "When
I have the hard facts, then I will
make a report to Council. If other'
actions are required by Council to
secure monies wrongfully spent,
those actions will be taken," Sand-
burg said.
The temporary freeze on all
monies leaving SGC has created
uncertainty as to how the Council
should handle allocations. Last
night Council voted to set up a
temporary "waiting list" that
would decide where money would
go if if the group had accidentally
allocated more than it actually
had. All future allocations are to
be made conditional on the avail-
ability of funds.
In a further attempt to clear up
SGC's organization, Sandburg
struck eight motions that he con-
sidered improper - frivolous or
illegel - from the agenda.
WHEN THE COUNCIL consid-
ered a motion to support the
United Farm Workers grape boy-
cott by asking the dormitories not
to buy non-union grapes, Jim Hud-
ler copied what fellow Screw SGC
party member Matt Hoffman had
done two weeks before by offering
non-union grapes to the audience.
Hoffman then recommended re-
moval of all Pepsi machines from
campus because the Pepsi-Cola
corporation has made a t r a d e
agreement with the U.S.S.R.,
which, according to Hoffman, op-
presses dissidents and Jews. Hoff-
man's motion passed.

remarks, Muniz maintained that
minority groups in this country
"must keep in mind the fact that
we all face the same problems and
the same racist institutions . . .
in short we all catch hell from the
same man.
"In the past the man has been
playing games with us and has
been trying to divide us," he con-
tinued, "but from now on we're
going to start building for our-
selves."
Like many Mexican - Americans
in Texas, Muniz was born of im-
poverished parents - the eldest
son of a truck mechanic in the
town of Corpus Christi.

cans in Texas, however, the was

IN OTHER conference events
last night, former Student Govern-
ment Council (SGC) President Lee
Gill was presented with a plaque
by conference organizers for his
efforts on behalf "of student and
minority rights.
The plaque presented to Gill last
night praised him for "establishing
a precedent of progressive achieve-
ment in the fight for student
rights and third world liberation."
The Solidarity Conference is
scheduled to continue tomorrow
night and Saturday with a program
of speakers and workshops on vari-
ous topics.
Tomorrow night at Hill Auditor-

Indian Movement co-founder Clyde
Bellacourt is to speak. He will
be followed by black activist An-
gela Davis.

MUNIZ EXPRESSED distrust of
the Texas Democratic Party,
which he labels "a racist party
which, except for tokenism, has
excluded Mexican-Americans for
many years."
In his gubernatorial effort this
year Muniz is running on a cam-
paign platform promising state
financed education for the poor,
in addition to other social pro-
grams.

INGMAR BERGMAN'S
BRINK OF LIFE
Although this film was made just after THE SEVENTH SEAL and WILD STRAW-
BERRIES and immediately before THE MAGICIAN, it received little general atten-
tion despite critics who placed this on the same plane as the others. )It is a human,
rather than metaphysical, story of three mothers and maternity.

CINEMA II presents
James Ivory's SAVAGES
(1971)
Outside Scarsdale, N.Y., the native "Mud Peo-
ple" are lured by an errant croquet boll into a
vast derelictrmansion. Under the influences of its
portraits, and cool elegance, theysare soon dress-
ing for dinner, exchanging phrases out of eti-
quette books and playing a malicious style of
barbed comedy. 1st showing in this part of the
country. Louis Stadler, Ultra Violet, Anne Fran-
cine.
ir******** ***** ** *** ** **** *
" A film full of withering social comedy and
a peculiar, erratic stateliness of style . . . deli-
cately wry and serious points are made in the film
about the viciousness possible in sophistication .,.
A glittering, sarcastic fable about progress .
about the entire rise, decline and fall of man,
which is a lot for a symbolic comedy to take on
.. The picture has the formal progressions of a
nursery story-of 'The Three Bears' say-but it is
stating something a great deal more worldly and
hinting at untold complicatedness ..."
