2 Student Candidates id Vigorous C r



_ _. __


SL Candidates. Answer
Daily ElectionQuestions
Seven hotly debated questions now going the rounds of inter-
ested students and campus groups were ventured by The Daily to the
58 candidates vieing for 23 Student' Legislature seats in the all-
campus elections today and tomorrow.
The questions, drawn up by Daily editors with the help of SL
officials, are a. part of a campus campaign to acquaint candidates
with voters and to whip up a hoped-for record of 10,000 votes.
* *
CANDIDATES HAD THREE choices in their answers, which ap-
pear below: "Yes," "No" and "No Opinion." In The Daily's candidate
questionnaire, questions left unanswered appear as "No Opinion."
Below each set of answers is the candidates statement on "Why
I am running for SL."
The questions are:
, 1. Do you think that Student Legislature should be given full
power to approve or disapprove student events to be placed on the
University's calendar of events.
2. Do you'think that Student Legislature sh ld work actively
to secure removal of possible discriminatory questions from appli-
cation blanks to University undergraduate colleges and professional
3. Do you feel that Communist Party members should be al-
lowed to participate in the Michigan Forum debate programs if
opposed by a competent speaker.
4. Do you think that Student Legislature should ask the Univer-
sity to set a time limit within which fraternities and sororities would
be forced to remove all discriminatory clauses (based on race, re-
ligion or national origin) from their constitutions, or be denied Uni-
versity recognition.
5. Would you favor a "student activities tax" of $.10 per stu-
dent to be levied at the time of registration, the proceeds of which
would be used to support Student Legislature.
6. Do you think that Student Legislature should launch a cam-
paign for making the Michigan Union a co-educational organization
- rather than its present status as a "men's club."
7. Do you feel that University campus police should be permit-
ted to enter student residences to search for liquor or evidence of
student drinking.
BECAUSE OF LIMITED SPACE and time, candidates were not
able to qualify their answers. In question 2, some candidates felt that
the questions on application blanks were not discriminatory and
answered "No."
In question 4, many candidates qualified their answers by stipu-
lating a certain time limit on removing discriminatory clauses from
fraternity and sorority constitutions.

The biggest single problem SL
faces is that with 8,000 votes it
can not really claim to represent
the student body. A bigger vote,
however, won't be obtained by
merely asking students to vote as
has been done in the past. They
must be shown what SL has done
and can do. SL has to be sold to
the students, grads as well as un-
dergrads. When it is, and only
then, wil it have full student sup-

There is a great need for Legis-

higher ideals, but to be responsible
to the students and the Univer-
sity in seeing that better govern-
ment takes precedence over per-
sonal desires. I believe that only
through responsible legislators
can the Student Legislature attain
the responsibility that it is fight-
ing for.

No. 6. No 7. No.
I feel that the Student Legisla-
ture, as it stands today, does not

represent a big enough portion of
the students. Hence, I feel that the
membership should be increased,
thus making a fairer representa-
tion and also giving to more stu-
dents, the experience of office. I
also feel that school spirit needs
strengthening, for it is only
through a mutually united front
that we can make the University
very strong.

I believe it is the function of
the SL to initiate and promote ac-

It should further reflect the opin-

body and should, in relations with
the administration, be the official
spokesman for the students.

1. Yes 2. Yes 3. Yes 4. No opin-
ion 5. Yes 6. Yes 7. No.
Right now students have practi-
cally no say on what is to take
place on campus. The Student
Legislature is an organization that
should assume the role of pro-
moting the prestige of students'
responsibility, both in eyes of the

with other campuses (through the
NSA), and coordinator of campus
groups. The SL must be energee,
responsive to student wishes, res-
ponsible, and effective in carrying
out its aims. I would like to utilize
my experience and ideas to
strengthen the position of SL and
increase its contributions to the
student community.
Jeff Knight, '51F&C
1. Yes 2. No 3. Yes 4. No 5.
Yes 6. No 7. No.
I desire to serve on the Student
Legislature because it would give
me an opportunity to serve a two-
fold purpose: one, to represent and
promote the best interests of Che
majority of students; and *Ovo,
through working with SL to gain
for myself the valuable experience
that goes into furthering a demo-
cratic group effort.
Allen Krass, '53Eng
1. Yes 2. Yes 3. Yes 4. No 5. No
6. No 7. Yes.
I feel that any government
worthy of that name should have
the power of limited taxation, but
the proposed 10c fee would be
nothing more than a gesture in
the right direction. At the present
time the Union, an organization
with a two and one half million
dollar surplus, receives seven and
one half dollars per year from
each male student's tuition. If
from fifty cents to one dollar of
this fee would be diverted to the
SL the Union's efficiency would
not be impaired, while the SL
would be in a position to carry
through such beneficial plans as
a student bookstore, student polls,
and others which have been shelv-
ed for lack of capital.
Jerry Kremer, '52
1. Yes .2. Yes 3. Yes 4. No 5.
Yes 6. No opinion 7. No.
It is my opinion that the SL has
not been able to carry out its pro-
gram effectively simply because
of its lack of authority. The lack
of delegated power can be attri-
buted to the fact that the Univer-
sity feels that the SL is not repre-
sentative of the entire student
body. It is therefore essential that
everyone votes in the coming elec-
tions to both insure a good legis-
lature and prove to the University
that the SL deserves more power.
Diana Lahde, '52
1. Yes 2. Yes 3. No 4. No 5. Yes
6. No 7. No.
I think a student governing body
is an important part of any edu-
cational institution, because it is
the voice of the students. The past
has clearly shown what SL can
do to improve our campus. I think
part of the job of SL on our cam-
pus is to make school as beneficial,
interesting and enjoyable as pos-
sible for the students. I would like
to be on the inside of our student
government working for what I
think should be done, rather than
standing on the outside and telling
others what to do.
Ted Laird, '51BAd
1. Yes 2. Yes 3. Yes 4. No 5. Yes
6. No 7. No.
I desire to serve on the Student
Legislature because I believe my
ideas reflect the majority of stu-
dent opinion and because I wish to
participate actively in Student
government here at the University.
Arlene Lange, '52Eng
1. Yes 2. No 3. Yes 4. No 5. No
6. No 7. No.
I desire to serve on SL because
I firmly believe in the principles
of student government and I want
to see the student government we
do have act as the voice of the ma-

jority of the students and not as
the voices of the select few who
compose the Student Legislature.
