ESIDENT REFLECTS:
ilins Compares Effecto

D PRESIDENT--Joe Collins, who retired in March after
ns as SGC president, has had lohg experience in student
nt at the University. Elected to the old Student Legisla-
freshman, he was one of the last SGC members to have
bohgroups.

By JOHN WEICHER
Joe Collins, '58, three times
cted president of Student Gov-
inent Council,. claims he got
.o student, government by ac-
ent.
'When I was a freshman," Col-
s said recently, "the men in
' house in South Quad decided
neone from the house had to
a. for Student Legislature (thed
decessor of Student Govern-
nt Council.
" didn't do any campaigning
side my own side of the quad,"
lins recalled. In those days, if
u got about 175 first-place votes,
i usually were able to win elec-
ns. There were about 175 fel-
s in my house, and I got about
votes."
Set Voting Record
n his last election, Collins set
ecord with over i,300 votes al-
ugh living in afi apartment
h only three men.
ollins and former SGC Execu-
e Vice-President ,Ron Shorr,
were the last Council mem-
s, who also served SL. Collins
racterized the old organiza-
1 as "ineffective," with its real
ver being concentrated in the
ids of a few members.
Many people seem to think
t SL with its 40' members, re-
:ted student opinion better'
n SGC with its 18," Collins
I. "This isn't right. A 'small
up dominated SL, as SGC has
er been dominated."
Irresponsibility Hurt SL
'he irresponsibility of SL hurti
group in its dealings with the4
alty and administratio'n, Col-
said. These groups were afraid
brust SL and because of thisf
e was no communication be-t
en them.
ollins sees a "lack of commu-f
tion" tendency developing onc
present.Council. The group is
rilling to talk to .members of
groups which have greater

continuity and experience on cam-
pus and is missing the boat with
the faculty and adminitration in
failing to develop "a real working
partnership."
"The Council doesn't remember
ttiat th'e element of choice on is-
sues always rests with the student
group," Collins commented.
SGC Becoming Administrative
SGC has become more and more,
an administrative organization, its
former president says. "The first
year the group was new, active,
tremendously exciting. It worked
with a minimum of detail.
"In the last year and, a half,
the Council's work' has centered,
around administrating the pro-
jects it set up before, which has
not been so exciting."
SGC has become more burdened
with administrative detail as it
takes over areas of- operation. The
Council needs a stronger commit-
tee system, perhaps even a "civil '
service," according to Collins.
More Members Needed
He- believes the Council ,needs
more elected members now to
assist in the group's main job of
representing student opinion. The]
elected members who are ,not of-i
ficers of SbCC should spend their]
time trying to determine studentj
opinion with a minimum of ad-
ministrative detail. Unfortunately,c
there are only seven of them,,
which is not enough, in the eyesE
of the former president.'
-* "The officers themselves are by
the nature of their positions, con-
cerned with administrative work,"i
Collins said.r
The Council is now on a fairly
firm fo.oting, Collins thinks; it hasr
established constructive prece-
dents by its handling of major is-s
sues, such as Sigma Kappa. In thef
future, it must increase its ac-
ceptance of the faculty,' and ad-'
ministration.t
"There has been a tendency tof
pick up personal issues," the for-f

f SGC, SL
mer leader said. "The great ef-
fort of some individuals may have
retarded, for instance, the Human
Relations Board motions recently.
"There are many projects where
one must be willing to add a little
bit only and then compromise to
get anything done. You can't
change the whole ideology of peo-
ple in one elected term on Student
Government."
There is an increase of both
pressure and responsibility in stu-
dent activities, Collins said; a
greater degree of utilizing time
is also called for. A student must
be much more efficient to be able
to contribute to his activity, and
must sacrifice to do so.
Other Rewards Found
However, activities have other
rewards. "Never a day goes by
without events and relations in-
creasing my respect for the Uni-
versity and its able administra-
tion. The student body is very'for-
tunate."
Collins paid tribute tqUniversity
President Harlan Hatcher and
James A. Lekis, vice-president in
charge of' student affairs. He
termed. DeansofdMen Walter B.
Rea and Assistant Dean John
Bingley "very devoted to students."
"It's also inspiring to see some-
one like Prof. Lionel Laing of the
political science department giv-
ing his time to student activities,"
Collins added.
Heads Jackson Democratic
At present Collins is president
of the Jackson County Democratic
Club, which office he considers
to be a great challenge. "Trying
to get a Democrat elected in Jack-
son County is 'like trying to get
elected to student government as
an independent was three or four
years ago. There's no organization
in Jackson, the birthplace of the
GOP. It's a great educational ex-
perience."
Collins' interest in politics stems
from his trip to Europe and Africa
this summer. He found much cri-
ticism of United States policy in
the former continent. African
leaders seemed to have a great
confidence in the future, although
communication with the mass of
people was difficult because of dif-
ferences in the cultural back-
grounds of the Americans and Af-
ricans.
At home, Collins regards the
lack of participation of Americans
in political affairs as a great chal-
lenge. He sees this apathy as grow-
ing from an unwillingness on the
part of citizens to recognize their
own responsibilities, coupled with
the greater number of diversions
available today.,
'Lack of Respect'
"There is a great lack of re-
spect for authority that should be
present in a democracy," Collins
noted.
After he finishes working on the,
present political campaign, Col-
lins expects to go to graduate
school at the 'niversity in the
fall and work in economics.
He also plans to get married in
September. "She's been a very pa-
tient girl," he laughed. After these
plans, he's uncertain about the
future.
