class must be represented.
comm. Western Reserve Univ., House
manager DKE House. Platform: Each
individual and faction should be
guaranteed an equal chance to pre-
sent thoughts in the matter of cam-
pus policy before the Congress when
legislation is pending. The Congress
has set up its own rules which should
be flexible to meet any situation.
These rules should permit the ex-

of the students.
Daily Sports staff, Alpha Phi Omega
service fraternity secretary and trea-
surer, member of Sigma Alpha Mu
fraternity and have been house man-
ager. Have worked on IFC Ball and
IFC News. Student government de-
mands cooperation between faculty
and students. The Congress muisi
comprise a realistic group who know

erence in the Cafeteria and the Lea-

should be corrected. A book exchange
is needed. Student organizations
should work in closer cooperation.

man. Experience: High school extra
curricular activities. School senate.
School betterment comm. Policy mak-
ing comm. Editor senior year book.
Platform: I desire to promote a bond
between veterans and their colleagues.
I do not stand for power politics and
factionalism. The high cost of eat-
ing at Willow Run should be investi-
gated. Also there should be a student
eating place in Ann Arbor.

vestigate cost of living in Ann Arbor.
Cooperative student laundry. Cooper-
ative cafeteria. Exchange students
with foreign countries to be advanced

form: I am interested in influencing
the governing factions of the Univer-
sity to obtain the will of the students,
specifically the Engineers with whom
I've worked.
Qualifications: Lt. army air force.
Platform: Intelligent cooperation be-
tween the faculty and the student
body is one of the fundamentals
necessary for successful student gov-
ernment. If elected I will try to
further this policy. The Congress gives
a student a voice in affairs at the
University. It is up to the students

Club and Madrigal Club. U. of M.:
JGP cast, Women's Glee Club. Mu
Phi Epsilon. Platform: For two years
I was on a campus where student
government worked. At Smith I was

should be set up to handle complaints
about courses and professors.

faculty ratings.
Junior. Transferred from Ward Bel-
mont Junior College. Experience:
Student council (president), Phi The-
ta Kappa at U. of M.; vice-president
in charge of pledges of Alpha Chi
Omega. Platform: Student govern-
ment should be clearing house for
campus affairs. Relationships with
the faculty should be improved. A
faculty rating system should be ar-
ranged. Give students a chance to
express criticism of the faculty on
issued forms. Congress should ex-
press the views of the whole campus
and express student opinion on vital
man. In student government Royal
