the Queen for some ten minutes
one suggestion was to have the
coronation Friday night so the
Queen might reign over the car-
nival festivities Saturday. Another
was to have the Queen's coronation
as an apex to all activity Saturday.
Still a different Idea was to have
the coronation smack-dab in the
middle of the carnival.
Getting nowhere toward a defi-
nite decision the matter was left
to he discussed at the next meet-
ing. Constitution Chnnges
A motion presented on the floor
by Senior Senator Jack Cobb presi-
dent of the Junior Class advocated
a constitutional change to allow
juniors to run for the vice-presidency
of the Student Association.
Cobb explained that this change
will enable a person to qualify
better for the job of presidency.
A dissenting senate pitched the
matter around for a while debating
as to whether or not this sort of
plan was "democratic."
"I think this thing is good be-caus-e
I don't believe Nixon will
get the presidency." stated Jerry
Bob Hutton in reply to comments
that a person who had been vice-
president had the jump on a per-
son who had not.
In the light of "competitive
spirit" the issue was debated.
Whether or not the change would
stifle competition was discussed.
When the vote was finally taken
nine were affirmative and three
were opposing an unusual situ-
ation in Senate since the general
precedence has been unanimous
vote on matters.
With two voting members ab-
sent and one having shortly be-
fore submitted his resignation the
required majority to carry the
matter was not present. The issue
was postponed until next meeting
when the other two voting mem-
bers are present.
A petition to amend Article II
Section 2 paragraph A (juniors to
be eligible) of the constitution
was being circulated after Senate
meeting. Some 71 persons had
signed the paper by midnight.
Specific purpose of the petition
was to get ten percent of eligible
voters to sign so the matter would
be presented on school-wide basis.
Junior Senator Paul Rogers sub-
mitted a letter of resignation
stating that work hours and in-
creased responsibility in church
work prevented his full effective-
ness. Sophomore Class President
I'M Markham was instructed by
Stephens to hold a special class
election to fill the vacancy.
