on bias clauses?
2. Do you think SL should abandon Tug Week?
3. Do you approve of SL tactics in the library dispute
4. Do you think NSA affiliation should be dropped?
5. Do you think SL should promote a de-emphasis of footb
6. Do you think SL represents student opinion?
The first question, if answered yes, would imply approval c

ago. Several experiments with
different methods of voting have
been used for J-Hop committee

most efficient.

looks and seems to be the quick-
est and most democratic method
of counting the ballots.
* * *
THE PROCEDURE in chrono-
logical order follows:
1. All ballots are distributed in
piles for each candidate according
to the first place votes.
2. The total number of ballots
cast is counted, than a quota for
election set by dividing this sum
plus one by the number of posit-
tions open plus one.
3. Candidates with enough first
place votes to equal or exceed
the quota are elected, and the
candidate receiving the fewest
number of first place votes
4. The number of ballots ey-
ceeding the quota which the
elected candidates received are
pulled at random from the piles
and redistributed according to
the second place vote. If the
candidate receiving the second
place vote is already elected the
third place vote is used and so
on. The votes of the low candi-
date are also redistributed.
5. After each count the lowest
candidate is dropped and his votes
redistributed until all posts have
been filled. Extra votes of the
elected members are also redistri-
buted after each count.
During the Spring election, more
than 300 visitors crowded the
Union Ballroom to watch the pio-
gress of their candidates. The SL
encourages anyone interested to
stop in and watch the Hare sys-
tem in action. The best hours
are between 9 and 11 p.m., when
the preliminary count is over and
the actual election begins.

ampus Interview s on Cigarette Testsr

No. 27...THE LYNXJ
I~ 4
This sporty student really teed off on a long tirade
when he found himself stymied on the "single puff"
and one sniff" cigarette tests. "They're strictly
for the birdies!" said he. He realized that
cigarette mildness requires more deliberation
than a cursory inhale or exhale. Millions of
smokers concur - there's only one true test of
mildness and flavor in a cigarette.,
I's the sensible test. .. the 30-Day Camel
Mildness Test, which simply asks you to try
Camels as your steady smoke on a day-after-day,
pack-after-pack basis. No snap judgments! Once
you've tried Camels for 30 days in your "T-Zone"
(T for Throat, T for Taste), you'll see why...
