Ca didates State Positions

Campus Issues Faed
By Potential Legislators
Today is election day and as a public service, The Daily herewith
prints the qualifying statements of the candidates for Student Legis-
lature and Board in Control of Student Publications.
SL candidates were asked to submit a 25 word statement on the
role of the legislature and to answer four questions on their petitions.
TURE PRE-ELECTION ACTIVITIES. An affirmative answer here
means that the candidate participated in the SL tryout program for
the last month, working with the Legislature,'or is an incumbent.
Legislators elected today and tomorrow will take office at the
next SL meeting Dec. 8.
PLANS FOR the election anticipate a vote or 10,000 students,
almost double that of any previous campus election. The two days
make it possible for everyone to vote and the leaders of every student
group on campus have urged all students to exercise their right to
elect their own representatives.
SL president Blair Moody, after urging all students to vote,
said, "Vote for what they think, not where they sleep."

Candidates Outline aims in
Student Publications Race
Terrence H. Benbow
Student publications are only as representative and comprehensive
as the capabilities of the staffs allow. Your vote is your most direct
voice in influencing the quality of your publications. I have six years
of commercial journalistic experience. I am unaffiliated and free
of all possible pressure groups. Therefore I feel I have the know-how
and freedom to represent the whole student body.
Bill Caldwell
I believe that a member of the Board in Control should have an
understanding of publications work and at the same time be grounded
in basic business principles. I have had publications experience at
another college and at the present time I am working for my Master's
Degree in Business Administration. The important point, however,
is that I am not connected with publications at Michigan and thus
am in a position to best represent both the students and the publica-
John B. Campbell
I believe that my experience as managing editor of The Daily last
year qualifies me for a position on the Board. I am familiar with the
functions of the Board, but would like to see more responsibility for
student publications given to the editors. Theyearned their jobsr
Richard Kraus
+ One who attempts to tackle a job should Ie familiar with the
problems it involves. Three years of association with every student
publication are my qualifications. I have been sports editor of The
Daily, a regular contributor to Gargoyle, and unofficial aide on the
Ensian sports staff.
Bruce Lockwood
As a member of the Board in Control of Student Publications I
would try to make the existing campus publications more representa-
tive of the Student Body and actively encourage the establishment of
new publications. In addition, I would strive to maintain a closer
relationship between this body and the individual student.
Alfred Millstein
I believe the students who work on The Daily and other publica-
tions are the ones best qualified to determine policy. The Board should
be little more than an advisory body. Promotions should be made
strictly on merit as judged by senior members of the staff, the stu-
dents themselves.
Richard W. Morrison
Student publications jre an important part of campus life. They
should be as representative of the student body as possible. I will do
everything I can to make this ideal a reality. I feel that I am qualified
to serve on the Board in Control by reason of my experience as a
member of The Daily staff.
Thomas C. Walsh
Incumbent. I'm seeking re-election because I believe that my
contacts with students and student organizations as well as the pub-
lications themselves qualify me to continue as one of your three
student representatives on this 11 member board which sets policy
and appoints editors for student publications,

1. Yes; 2. Yes; 3. Yes; 4. Yes.
Wiliam L. O'Neill

ment of that opinion.

David Pease, Jr.

Gellert Seal
