Today does this or ganization reflect the opinions of students by its constituted pow ers ? To many freshmen the name was first mentioned last Friday at the Muster. With their inter est and knowledge of student gov ernment how can the Student Senate maintain true represen tation of the students ? The only remedy is to create an interest and knowledge of hap penings in our college. Mainly I propose the class officers be ad mitted to the Student Senate and charged with the responsibility to inform the class through meet ings, etc. This will create the class officer as a true represent ative of his classmates.

Only with this sug gested action I believe the Stu dent Senate can reach its poten tial. The caliber and accomplish ments of office holders would in crease, creating a stronger and more effective student governing body. I am seeking the office of re cording secretary and if I am elected will represent the student body. With this in mind I be lieve it is my duty to express my position to enable the voters to better choose candidates of his choice. In conclusion consider your candidates for what they have done and said for they are inter ested in your student govern ment. Frank R. Kiolbassa, ’64 Candidate for Student Senate - Recording Secretary ★ ★ ★ ‘...work diligently 9 Editor, The Battalion: Aggies, it is a pleasure to be given the opportunity to give you a little information about the role of the Student Senate Student Life Committee, the chairman ship for which I am running. Information on what the sen ate has done and will do is lack ing, but I believe the interest shown by candidates this year shows that something is being done to promote this, our student government body—the voice of the A&M students. , The Student Life Committee handles such problems as policies concerning Aggie traditions, staff-student relationships and policies of student life. It pro vides liaison between faculty and administration and the students, as well as working with the other three standing committees—Is sues, Welfare and Public Rela tions—in the investigations and making of recommendations on academic and social problems, health and recreation issues and the housing situation to college governing bodies. There briefly are the powers and responsibili ties of the office I am seeking— Student Life Committee Chair man. I pledge myself to work dili gently to see ,that every matter brought before the Senate re ceives adequate appraisal and persuit to insure that the wishes of the student body are carried out for the benefit of A&M.
