Tomorrow and Tuesday, you will choose your, rep-
resentatives in your student government.
For weeks the campus has been in turmoil over the
hottest campaign yet fought here. Now it is up to you'
to select the people who represent your point of view.
The Student Legislature has come a long way since
its beginning four years ago. Its continued progress de-
pends on you. A Legislature which can show the Ad-
ministration that it is backed by the student body can
accomplish far more for you than a group selected by
a token vote.

By now, you know the issues, and you have prob-
ably been faced with some of the candidates, either in
person or by poster or letter.

"Last year some of the volunteers got a little over-zealous in
giving candidates votes, so now we're being extra careful in pro-
tecting the ballot boxes," SL member Jim Storrie said.
STORRIE ISSUED a plea for five volunteers to work polling
booths at noon tomorrow. They may call him at 2-4401, 407 Chicago
House. He also said any volunteers who have not been notified by
today where to work to call him at the above number.

a closely guarded secret.
