Student Association Is Granted
$6,116 Budget*$4,826 for Activities
An annual budget of $6,116 for
the student association was an-
nounced at a joint session of the
House and Senate Monday, by
Mike Coppinger, student asso-
Of this, $4,826 was set aside
for student activities. This in-
cludes $3,200 for top name enter-
Tentative plans for homecom-
ing were discussed at the meet-
ing. A motion was introduced
to hold a mock election on cam-
pus for president and governor.
Later Coppinger addressed the
Dick Fuller, chairman of'the
homecoming committee, re-
ported on tentative plans for
homecoming scheduled Nov. 16.
Activities will include a parade,
game and dance.
The possibility of holding a
mock election this year was sug-
gested by Nelson Tibodeaux. A
question of how much it would
cost was raised but exact a-
mounts were not known. The dis-
cussion was delayed until the
President Mike Coppinger then
addressed the meeting. He said he
hoped that this year the asso-
ciation would deal with more
than just student activities. He
also mentioned that he hoped
the group may go so far as to
adopt a new constitution.
There was a 50 per cent in-
crease in voter turnout last
spring, he stated. This was still
less than 25 per cent of total
students. Coppinger said that
possibly the reason for this is
because the students have no em-
pathy with the association.
Be said another reason the
students seem to have no faith
in the government is that many
of them do not know what the
association does. He emphasized
that the duties of officers should
be publicized more.
Coppinger pointed out to the
members the importance of get-
ting to know the students they
are representing and to vote
for them and not just represent
themselves. He said if problems
do arise for the students it is
the association’s duty to try to
solve them in the correct and
