Freshman nominations will be held in the quadrangle between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on Monday and Tuesday of next week, announced Van Aucoin, election chairman of the Student Council. The elections will be held Nov. 30-31. Aucoin said that the presidents of each college will be in charge of the elections in their respective colleges. Today at noon in the quadrangle the candidates for president will speak on their respective platforms. The main argument centers around the freshmen voting seat on the Student Council. At present the status quo is that the entire freshmen class has one vote on the Council. Each of the three candidates for president in art* and science, Ross Yockey, Don Vaccaro, and Mickey McGregor, propose different solutions. Yockey proposes the freshmen vote be increased. He believes that arts and science should be allowed 2% votes, business administration one vote and music school Ms vote. Don Vaccaro believes that it is not feasible to increase the freshmen vote, but that it could be made more effective through more judicious use. McGregor stated that he thought that the president of each college should be given a single vote at the beginning of the second semester. The remainder of all three platforms center around school spirit and ways to further it.
