Five candidates are running for

Four aspirants, including former

dent publications.

served the past year as Advertis-
ing Manager of the Daily..
Paul Elvidge, '57, the other
Board entry has not had experi-
ence with publications but has
work~ed with Student Legislature
and Interfraternity Council.
Guide Policy
The three students on the Board
of Control sit with five faculty
members and two state newspaper
editors to guide policy of the Daily,
Ensian, Gargoyle and Generation.
Faculty board members include
Prof. Kenneth Stewart of the
journalism department, Prof. Dud-
ley Phelps of the business admini-
stration school, Prof. William Mc-
Keachie of the psychology depart-
ment, Prof. Warner G. Rice of the
English department and chairman
of the Board John Reed of the
Law School.
State Editors
State newspaper editors include
Glen McDonald of the Bay' City
Times, and Ink White of Clinton
County Republican News.
Britz, the only Board incumbent
running for reelection, stresses

two years Miss Cordill is "appre-
ciative of the problemĀ§ confronting
the publications and could thus
be an aid to the Board."
Worked on Daily
Gurwin and Wise have both
worked on the Daily for four years.
Summer sports editor of the
Daily last summer, Gurwin has
worked with the Interfraternity
Council as a member of the House
Presidents Assembly.

Wise, a member of Druids sen-
ior honorary, has also been in Un-
ion Opera.
Elvidege said in his campaign
statement his experience in publi-
cations has been limited to the
role of observer.
"Because I have had no direct
contact with the organizations in-
volved, I feel I could bring to the
discussions of the Board a fresh
and impartial viewpoint."

The Inquiry report urges a sub-
stantial increase in staff assistpnt
salaries tied to the cost of room
and board. The present $25 per
month salary has been in effect
since 1945, while room and board
rates have gone up about $278 an-
SGC Election
Stairts Today
(Continued from Page One)
In many quarters the campaign
for the SGC election has been
considered slow.
Although candidates have plas-
tered posters in most convenient
campus locations, given speeches
in fraterniies, sororities and dor-
mitories, many observers have de-
plored the lack of discussion of
"important" issues.

As to the associate advisors
(house mothers), the committee
feels the position should be con-
tinued, although periodic instruc-
tion should be given. A periodic
review of her effectiveness should
also be made, the report states.
No further transfer of house
units to women should take place,


the group asserts. "Such measures four years experience with the Dai-

are utterly

destructive to

the I ly

House Plan and its objectives."
A further recommendation is
"the IHC, the fraternities and the
administration s h o u 1 d jointly
study the problem of freshmen
pledges in the residence halls for
the purpose of finding a solution
which would be satisfactory to
Evaluate Personnel
Staff personnel should be peri-
odically evaluated by students in
the residence halls, the report con-
tinues. Such evaluations woMld be
for corrective purposes.
IHC should develop a leadership
training program for house offi-
cers, the committee stated.
-Concerning the recommenda-
tions, the Inquiry committee stated
they are intended to represent
areas of the report "which should
be considered immediately by the
governing bodies of the men's res-
idence halls - the residence hall
board of governors and the IHC."

Last week, Crisler told The
Daily the trophy was not insured
and said it would have to be re-
placed if not returned.
Disciplinary Action Unsure
Concerning possible discipline,
Dean Rea said it was not possible
to predict what action, if any,
would be taken until the full cir-
cumstances were known. But, he
added, the emphasis was on get-
ting the trophy back in good
shape. "We hate to consider dis-
cipline for something done as a
prank," Dean Rea commented.
Originally, it was thought Mich-
igan State students took the tro-
phy back to East Lansing.
In an annonymous letter to the
Michigan State News, a group
calling themselves "Ope'ration Res-
cue" claimed to have returned the
trophy to State's campus because
of "shabby treatment given him
by the University."
Later it was learned the trophy
had been taken by University stu-
dents. According to rumor, it was
taken by a group of students who
thought the trophy was foolish
and had no intention of returning
