MSA presidential hopefuls reveal party platforms
By GEORGE ADAMS
Candidates from three campus political parties are com-
peting for the Michigan Student Assembly presidency in elec-
tions to be held next week.
The list of parties includes two newly-formed groups-the
British Humor Party and Voice-which are attempting to
oust the People's Action Coalition from the MSA presidency
it has held for the past two years.
EIGHTY-TWO candidates are running for the 37 seats on
the assembly, the campus-wide student government. Twen-
ty-seven of the candidates are independents, while the
remaining 55 belong to one of the three parties. No indepen-
dent candidates are running for president.
PAC is the largest of the three with 29 candidates. PAC
candidates are running unopposed in the Schools of Medicine,
Nursing and Public Health. Voice is the next largest party
with 19 candidates, including an unopposed candidate in the
School of Dentistry. The smallest of the parties is the British
Humour Party, which will have seven candidates on the
No candidates are running for seats in the Schools of Ar-
chitecture and Urban Planning, Education, Library Science,
and Music. Also, there will be only a write-in candidate for
the position on the Board for Student Publications, because
the original candidate was disqualified.
British Humour Party
BHP presidential candidate Duane Kuizema wants to bring
"student government back down to the student level" and
wants MSA to spend its time and money on issues that effect
students more directly.
Kuizema and his running-mate, George DeMuth, say their
number-one priority if elected would be improving campus
TO FIGHT security problems, they have proposed creating
a student force to work in cooperation with the present
security staff. They think people in the group could be paid
either through work-study programs or by the revenues from
a registration tax on students.
Kuizema criticized the current MSA administration for ac-
tions he feels don't really help students. "MSA spends too
much time and money on issues away from students. They
should concentrate on things that effect students directly,"
"For instance," he continued, "I don't see the benefit to
most students from a bus ride to Washington with the Latin-
American Solidarity Committee. They could have put the
same effort into something like financial aid, and students
would have benefited more."
BHP SUPPORTS military research on campus so long as
the projects have civilian applications. They oppose any

ALTHOUGH THE march will end in June, the peace

of the marchers who has been on the trek since its
begining. "There is no 'organization' in the peace
