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
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.
