The only aerious problem our

common to most government
organizations; keeping tho'
student body ns 0 whole actively
interested in its activities.
Otherwise I must commend
them for a job well done; rind
can only pledgo that If you my

make every effort through God's
help to make our SA come even
more alive for all.

'I am planning on seeking the
office of Vice President sejant
next year. I have gained valuable
practical experience in leader-
ship thla year m a result of my
work with our student senate I
was aleo privileged to attend a
leadership conference In Delias
recently which has helped me
gain additional experience in
dealing with people.
One weakness in Senate I m
dearly see since I am a
freshman Is that new members
of the Senate are confused
concerning the many activities
ACC is Involved In. I believe Sing
Song Is the best example of this

A form of panic seems to have-
swept acroas the Abilene
Christian College community
this semester. The apprehension
k mainly due to unfavorable
publicity the college has rcaVivcd
from media coverage of certain
ACC student.
The publicity has caused
several people to draw rash
coiietueioM based upon gross
gewevaMaatien and rumor.
The first tnttsnee of
unfavorable publicity occurred
when the news of an alleged
ACC student streaker hit the
front pages of many of the
nation's major newspapers. The
streaker supposedly ran past the
DATA fountain wearing nothing
but a hat cape and tenma shoes.
Accusation were made

motivation af the student body
that were unprovable but led to
