Two conservatives, liberal

win School

Board election

Lew voter turnout, especially in the
student precincts, characterized yester-
day's School Board election as two con-
servatives and a liberal won three year
terms.
Unofficial final results indicated the
winners are Patricia Pooley (7239), Terry
Martin (6268) and Paul Weinlold (5725).
ALSO ON THE ballot were two millage
proposals-for a renewed school millage
and for library funding. Both won over-
whelmingly.
Voter turnout was disappointing as it
Schaper bounced
In his first major move as chief execu-
tive, newly elected Student Government
Council President Lee Gill has kept a
campaign promise to remove controversial
SGC figure David Schaper from Council
affairs. Gill yesterday announced the ap-
pointment of math major and grad stu-
dent Rosemary Mollin as SGC Treasurer,
terminating Schaper's role as "executive
assistant to the President for financial
affairs." Mullin, says Gill. will attempt
to tnake a proper accounting of SGC's
mangled financial records, a task origin-
aH assigned[ to Schaper.

Working class hero?
A college president who said he wanted
to "get away from the world of books
and words" spent his two-month vaca-
tion digging ditches, collecting garbage
and washing dishes. Dr. John Coleman of
Haverford College was concerned about
a split between intellectuals and work-
ers. "I think I will be a better college
president because I have done it," he
said.
Happenings .. .
... are slim today. "Bonnie and Clyde"
will be featured by the A2 Film Co-op

The Ecumenical Campus Center is spon-
soring a lunch at noon, at the center. If
you just feel like cooling tff, try the tM
pool from 3,30-6:30, or the Margaret Bell
Pool from 9:30-1 (co-ed), from 12-4 (wo-
men only), from 1-2 (co-ed), from 5-6
(women only), from 7-8 (women only)
and from 8-9:30 (co-ed). The Fuller City
pool on Fuller Road is nice if you can
manage to avoid the busy ,after-school
hours.

drooped to 25 per cent from 30 per cent
last year. Less than 211 per cent of the
registered voters in the stttdent wards
voted; up to 80 per cent turned out in
the more conservative precincts of the
fifth ward. The two most liberal candi-
dates, Diana Autin and Henry Alting, came
in last.
Although alt of 'the candidates save
Autin frosa the Human Rights Party ran
on a non-partisan basis, Martin and Wein-
hold are generally characterized as con-
servatives and Poolev as a liberal.

MAJOR CAMPAIGN issues included
violence in the public schools, community
control and the basic curriculum.
Recently the city schools have been hit
with a rash of violent incidents including
several riots and stabbings. The discipline
problem differentiates the candidates most
clearly.
Martin and Weinhold favor an alterna-
tive school which would segregate the
"trouble makers" from the rest of the
student population. They also favor a
stricter grading system. Weinhold suggests
potential problem children should be ding-

nosed and helped at the elementary school
level.
POOLEY ALSO hones the problem can
be defeated in the lower grades but
opposes the alternative school.
Weinhold downplayed the political im-
plications of the race and emphasized his
"pragmatic" concerns, such as school
curriculum.
While Pooley advocates placement of
voting student members on the School
Board, Weinhold and Martin stop short
of giving such members voting power.
City Council

trespassing
in schools
By GORDON ATCHESON
After lengthy debate, City Council last
night approved an ordinance designed to
prevent unauthorized persons from loiter-
ing ai public school property.
The Rtepitblienn cotciltnen claimed the
ne sitre is ntecessary to ctrttil the vio-

'ouncil member Rttbert Henry (R-
'third Ward) spoke in favor of the hea-
sure saying the violence in city schools
must be curbed. Ie admitted that certain
applications of the ordinance ciild be dis-
criminatory, but said that "no better al-
ternatives to the present situation have
been offered."
NANCY WECHSLER (RRP - Second
Ward) said the ordinance merely can-
tinues "closed, authoritarian school poli-
cies." The ordinance is irrelevant to the
actual problems within the schools, she
added.
Several amendments to the legislation
were proposed by Norris Thomas (D-First
Ward) but the Republicans teamed up to-
vote them down. Thomas termed the
measure "Hitlerian tactics" in its present
form.
During the debate, a member of the
Gay Liberation Front entered- the coon-
