Battalion Editorials Page 2 THURSDAY, APRIL 8, 1954 Student Voters Face Acid Test Filing began yesterday in the Student Activities office for positions to be filled in the general elections to be held April 27. Deadline for filing is April 21 for student senators, Battalion co-editors, non-military Student Life Committee members and non-military yell leaders. After all the interest shown in the student election held Tuesday and the general buzz of conversation concerning candidates in the run-off election, much of the spotlight will be on the voters in both elections. Most of the non-military students who have talked about the strong showing made by the non-regs stated that they are after “more proportionate representation” in student government. By turning out en masse for both the run-off and the general election, A&M students, both corps and non-reg, can show they have a real interest in who represents them. There are many offices open to non-regs only. Others will be limited to voters from the corps. What will be interesting to watch is whether a student will go to the polls only when he feels his faction is in danger of being stifled, or whether he is genuinely concerned with who is placed in charge of his student government. Air Reserves Hear Andrews’ Address W. H. Andrews, pastor of the First Baptist church of Bryan, spoke to the College Station air reserves at their regular meeting Monday night. He spoke on “Living For Leader ship”, a program presented to cadets at Bryan Air Borce base. The entire program consists of eight lectures given by line officers.
