OPINIONS of the 30 candidates on various election issues were
again sounded out in a Daily poll. The questions asked those running
1) Do you favor the student tax as proposed in the revised Stu-
dent Legislature Constitution?
2) Are you in favor of:
a) Hare method of proportional representation at large
b) Weighted ballot
c) Some form of the district system
3) Do you think Student Legislature should act on discrimi-
nation by
a) Sticker campaign.
b) Sticker-publicity campaign.
c) Consultation with merchants by means of a special anti-
discrimination board.
d) Not act on it.
4) What special projects do you believe Student Legislature should
initiate in the coming year?
5) What Student Legislature committee would you like to work on?
6) Do you favor in theory the proposed Student Affairs study
committee student government plan of the Student Executive Com-
mittee composed of seven organization representatives and elected
members subject to a faculty-administration-student reviewing board?
Candidates names, statements and answers to the above questions
will follow:

Adams, Bill, '57
1. yes 2. b 3. c 4. initiate a
weighted ballot system of elec-
tions. 5. campus action or pub-
lic relations 6. no.
I believe that a weighted ballot
plan, alloting additional value to a
first place vote should be substi-
tuted for the Hare system. I be-
lieve that SL should keep in clos-
er contact with the student body
by conducting periodic opinion
polls on key issues, question and
anwser sessions involving students
and SL and through an improved
election system. I think that fur-
ther study is necessary on the
problem of student government

program 5. finance 6. no
I think that more student in-
terest is vitally needed to retain
any type of student government,

whether it be SL or not. Becausef
I have not worked on SL, I cannot
offer suggestions now for its im-
.provement. If I were to be elected.
I would endeavor to find out jitsti
what was needed to "coagulate"j
the student body and its ideas of
student government. As to definiteI
ideas, I do not wish to see a remov-
al of the driving- ban, because I
believe such an action would create
more problems than it would elim-
inate. Women's hours are adequate
for most coeds.
The quarterly system is wrong
for University students because,
again, the problems of summer
employment and others would be
greater than those eliminated,

Like the (eaiheir everyone
knows what's wrong with SL, but
nobody does anything about it. In
the past year on SL, I have at-
tempted to initiate matters which
directly affect the students: good
-Cinema Guild movies, hearings on'
a student bookstore, discussion of
student football seating prob-
lems, a study of student registra-
tion problems, see that students
are represented on faculty ari
administration committees which
deal with student problems. The
coming year will be difficult for
SL. I want to work to see that SL
obtains the authority and respegt
which a student government must
command to justify its existence.

I believe that a student govern-
ment should have first place on a
campus. It should be the means
whereby opinions of the student
body, on any issues that may arise,j
are expressed to campus organiza-
tions and faculty groups. As a
member of S 1,I would strive to
make the student voice on our
campus as effective as possible by

6. yes
I favor the SEC proposal but
feel that it should provide for at
least twice as many elected mem-
bers as ex-officio. I believe also
that the elected members should
be chosen by some form of dis-
trict system, that there should be
a method of recall of elected mem-
bers, and representatives should be
required to speak to their consti-
tuents. By these methods, student
opinion would be more adequate-
ly expressed and greater student-
faculty - administration coordina-
tion would be achieved.

Student government-regardless
of its form-must "legislate" and
implement the views of the stu-
dents. Such views must be express-
ed by competent responsible rep-
resentatives. Therefore it is im-
perative that SL adopt 1) higher
qualifications for candidates, 2)
district system, and 3) student tax
and a paid Cabinet. To work for
these ends I offer my experience

I favor modifying the driving
ban, a student tax of 25 cents
which would enable SL to con-
centrate on legislative rather than
financial matters and student rep-
resentation on all faculty commit-
tees concerned withstudent af-
fairs. I oppose the Crary Plan
which would begin the semester
in the latter part of August, the
SAC proposal for a Student El-
ecutive Council, which would not
represent general student opinion.

The distinctly paternalistic at-
titude of the University toward SL
must be replaced by confidence
and the desire to facilitate legis-
lation. There must be greater stu-
dent representation on joint fac-
ulty-administration-student com-
mittees such as the SAC. There
must be recognition of SL by the
Board of Regents. Immediate and
decisive Regents action must be
brought about on SL's driving ban
alternatives. Any responsible stu-
dent government must have fi-
nancial stability. Therefore the
levying of a student tax should
be considered.

Finding that many of my opin-
ions are shared with campus
friends I believe that I can rep-
resent their ideas as well as my
own. The following are projects I
should like to see SL improve or
carry out: student tax, action
against discrimination directed
toward minority campus groups,
improvement of international and
American students relations.

matters. 5. campus actioh 6. yes
SL has done almost nothing in
the field of coordination of cam-
pus activities and is hampered in
its service to the campus by seem-
ingly endless debate on many pol-
icy matters. I would like to see the
abolishment of human relations
and culture and education com-
mittees and a new committee
formed: a policy steering com-
mittee.I would like to see SL en-
ter the field of coordination of
campus activities and a new stand-
ing committee established to ac-
complish this.

more publicity. 5. campus ae-

It is not within the realm of SL
to pressure Ann Arbor merchants
on discrimination, nor should SL
interfere with chapters of national
fraternities over bias clauses. SL
must reflect student opinion more
effectively by: channeling student
feeling into SL especially by use
of petitions, utilizing the speaker's
bureau supposedly in existence
