Patrick Greene Is Disqualified For Veep Post The Student Senate Tuesday night affirmed an election commis sion recommendation and disqual ified newly elected Senate vice president Patrick Greene. Action by • the senators culmin ated nearly two hours of discus sion. The senators voted 12 to 11 to disallaw Greene’s ascension to office. Two charges had been brought against Green by his opponents— one for posting campaign posters in classroom buildings and the other for leaving his posters up for over one day after the May 4 election. The election commission May 9 convicted Greene of the first charge, but found him not guilty of the second accusation. The Senate did not vote on the separ ate charges, but merely on a mo tion whether or not to allow him to take office. According to college regulations, the second-high candidate in the election will automatically assume the office. Running second to Greene was Gregory H. Laughlin, who received 310 votes, 40 less than Greene. Other candidates in the election, all of whom joined Laughlin in filing disqualification charges, were Louis W. Zaeske, Shelburne J. Veselka and Byrom T. Wehner. Jark Slated To Address New Officers Lt. Gen.

Alumni Fund Drives Started Over The State A&M former students are con ducting Development Fund cam paigns in more than 300 Texas cities during the month of May, according to Frank Harvey of Wichita Falls, president of the As sociation of Former Students. Har vey said that “most of the city campaigns would be concluded by May 31.” The 1962 goal is $500,000, with $268,000 in unrestricted funds, Richard (Buck) Weirus, director of the association development fund, said. $150,000 of this fund has been earmarked for the pro gram of academic excellence, which includes faculty and staff salary supplementations, faculty research projects, graduate fellow ships and other faculty assistance programs. “The remainder of the fund will be used for Opportunity Award Scholarships, Faculty Achievement Awards and other worthwhile ob jectives to support a c a d e m i c achievement at A&M,” Weirus stated. In 1957 the Aggies won the $10,- 000 grand prize U. S. Steel Foun dation Alumni Incentive Award with nearly 50 per cent of the alumni participating in the pro gram. “This year the Aggies should reach a new all-time high, as more than 10,000 gifts have already been received by the college,” Dick Hervey, executive secretary of the association, said. He said that the response thus far indi cates that “we will reach 75 per cent participation and set an all- time record for alumni giving for a state-supported institution.” The executive board announced that a concentrated drive to create intei'est in corporate aid to the fund will be launched during the last six months of 1962.
