What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? You have to have enthusiasm. You have to want to do it and have the time to put into it. As far as those qualifications, I believe I am qual ified. I think I have the time to de vote to it and I believe I would really enjoy doing it. Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform? I would accept any kind of spirit committee. I’d like to see more people involved at A&M than there I’ll be a Senior next year. Last year I wanted to run for junior yell leader and I just didn’t have the time. People kept pushing me, saying, “We want a civilian yell leader.” Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform ? We have the Diamond Darlings. If they want to do something like that for some of the non-spectator sports. I’d be willing to go along with it. The yell leaders are there to take care of the major spectator sports. If it was more like the Diamond Darlings I think it would work out. want to keep alive traditions at Texas A&M. Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform? Yes, I would accept a women’s spirit committee. I think girls here at A&M have kind of pumped up the Aggie spirit even more, and I see no reason why we should restrict them doing that any further. are now. Mark Pool What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? Frank Shannon What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? In the office of Yell Leader you have to be a true Ag with maroon blood. You have to know your fellow students. You have to know your school. In short, give your all for- Texas A&M. Of these qualifications I think I qualify. I want the office of Senior Yell Leader because I love Texas A&M. I Joe Mickler What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? I think I am very well qualified for yell leader because I was junior yell leader this year. The qualifications are someone who wants to work, has a deep love for A&M, someone who can communicate to the people. I think I have these qualifications. Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform? It might get a lot more people in volved. It might be a good idea, but I’d have to think about what I’d like them to perform.

Whatever happened to the pro fessor evaluations? What are the problems that have been encoun tered with it and how do you hope to solve them? Professor evaluations have been compiled and will be in the Battalion office by April 6 for later publication. Problems with professor evaluations have been both mechanical and philosophical, too detailed to answer briefly.

Are you planning to lobby during the next session of the Texas Legis lature? If not, who is going to and why? Yes, I plan to be actively involved in the next session. In addition, I intend to set up a committee of lob byists and researchers to prepare testimony and to be involved in lob bying activities. What is the best means of becom ing involved in city and county gov ernment? Why? The best means is to become ac tive in citizen’s committees. These committees do the research and make proposals to the council. How do you plan to give the in formation you acquire from conven tions to the students? I will provide such information through the Student Government Informer and The Battalion. What are your qualifications for this office and why do you want it? I have been involved in Student Government and the External Af fairs Committee for three years. Throughout 75-76 I was the vice- president for external affairs. I’ve learned how to get things done through my position this year. I can provide the continuity, management ability, and dedication required by this office.

Jack Hardie and Dr. Paul Christensen Forum 7:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 6 FREE dents have on their curriculum? How can they get greater input? Curriculum is influenced by many groups, among them students, fa culty, and employes. Students may attain greater input by using what is now available and expanding it. There are three students on the Uni versity Curriculum Committee, the first step in changing curriculum. How important is recruitment of minority students to the education quality of A&M? Why? Minority recruitment is a rather important issue. Education is a broad term used to introduce stu dents to as many learning situations as possible. Anyone who says that he or she does not learn from interac tion with a minority is lacking in self-assessment. What is your feeling on mid-term grade reports? Why? Mid-term grade reports are faulty in many ways and are helpful in very few. Giving the student and/or the parent a realization of the student’s progress is good, if that is what it is. Blanket grades, grades before a curve and purely subjective grading are definite faults especially when these may be used for elections, vet erinary school entrance and awards. Should there be a stiffer policy for satisfactory-unsatisfactory courses? Why or why not? Should there be more credit-by-examination? Why or why not? For the 1976-77 academic year, a “C” in a satisfactory-unsatisfactory course will be required to receive the satisfactory designation as com pared to a current “D ”. The re quirements which will be in effect will be justifiable. Should there be a core of re quired classes which everyone, re gardless of major, takes? Why or why not? Required courses at this time are English 104, Poli Sci 20^5 and 207 and History 105 and 106. This is required by state law. How important is on-the-job training (internships, practice teaching, co-ops)? Should such programs be extended and should the Accreditation Boards be pressed into allowing more credit hours for such training? Why or why not? Such programs have been trying to expand the internship proposal which the Student Senate endorsed this year. Accreditation boards are not the stagnating factor, trying to get their requirements and intern ships into a four-year program like engineering is the problem. Should students have input on te nure hearings? Why or why not? On selection of department chairmen? Why or why not? Tenure and department chairman selection is an area concerning the personnel of the University. Student assessment of the professors is cur rently used by the selection process. What might be a better question is: Should the process be re evaluated by the University? Yes. Should there be greater consid eration in evaluation of transfer hours? Why or why not? Leave the consideration of equal academic credit hours to those who are able to assess that quality, the professional academicians. TEXAS Ai?M UNIVERSITY dm PRESENTS cIeveIanc!

That is a tough question because it has never been attempted at A&M. Warren Neeley What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? I live over in Moses Hall and I’m sophomore representative on the dorm council and on the judicial board. I’m a member of SCONA. I enjoy working with people. I think that if I was yell leader I could yell and I could help other people to yell. I believe that the crowd and the spirit is a large part of our success with our teams. I think I could do a good job and contribute to our win ning. Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform? I’d like to see them be able to do more on the bonfire. But there’s a lot of truth that if a girl gets hurt the bonfire might have to stop. Serving cookies and Cokes is not the idea of good bull to most girls. I’m not sure what could be done, if something else could be set up for them as im portant. No pom-pom girls, no short skirts, no kick routines. There is no place for that at A&M. Some kind of advis ory committee, I don’t know how they’d pick it, it’s a good thought. Paul Bracher What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? I meet up to all the qualifications of the election committee has set aside. In the past yell leaders have con centrated their efforts on football, basketball and maybe baseball. Should other varsity sports be sup ported by the yell leaders including women’s events? The thing about yell leaders is they are there for the students and they are for spectator sports. Unless you’re not into golf it’s not really ex citing. Girl’s basketball is coming up and if people got interested in it the yell leaders ought to be there. Robbie Tucker What are your qualifications for the office and why do you want it? First of all, I was a junior yell leader last year, and senior yell lead ers are the ones in charge that run all five of them. I feel I’m very qualified because this year I have met all the university campus leaders. I have a head start over all the other people when it comes to running things. Would you accept a women’s spirit committee? What activities would you have it perform? Well, I don’t know exactly what you mean by a women’s spirit com mittee. The women do carry on a big part of the spirit. As far as I’m con cerned, they are doing their part.
