I Cheryl Foster am a candi-
date for the office of sophomore
senator and support the following
(1) More cooperation between
student congress and student
(2) Ureat effort to carry out
the newly revised Student Con-
(3) More and more varied ac-
tivities to arouse the interests of
students in our university.
My aim in running for this of-
fice is to look for the needs and
desires of the student body and
to work toward meeting these
needs and desires. At the same
time I would like to help your
congress a& our new president
durfasj this vital firtt yer e hi
To serve as President of the
Student Association is both a
privilege and a responsibility.
To better oarn this privilege
and carry out the responsibilities
of this office I think a candidate
should not only be capable and
willing but also experienced in
dealing with the Student Con-
gress administration and faculty
members. The best way I know
to have obtained this experience
is to have served in the Student
Congress and be familiar with its
various functions limitations and
possibilities. This I have done by
serving in the Senate and on a
number of the committees it has.
Too a candidate should have in
mind some definite goals he
would like to accomplish and a
way for accomplishing them.
These I also have and will pre-
sent them in my speech to the
It is because I feel that I have
fulfilled the qualifications for
President more than adequately
and have a definite desire to
serve in this capacity that I am
a candidate for President of the
Student Association of Hardin-
I have been made aware of the
urgent need for an experienced
responsible and dedicated leader
of the congressional activities of
our next year together. I am
convinced that this elected leader
must be capable of representing
each facet of the student body to
the greatest degree possible. I
have been closely associated with
many groups on campus ranging
from the Theater to the Cadet
Corps to the athletes. I am
aware of the interests and con-
cerns of the social clubs and the
service clubs and I am convinced
that they are both vital elements
of our college society.
I feel quite strongly that the
student body and the faculty and
administration should consistent-
ly work as a cohesive unit with
progress as a unified goal. I am
concerned that we avoid trite an-
tagonistic involvements and that
we sincerely strive for under-
stand and workable solutions to
the situations which will arise in
the course of the year. I feel
that we must honestly and sin-
cerely support our new president
and make available to him our
experience and our help concern-
ing the Student Body of H-SU.
I am quite familiar with the new
constitution being developed by
our present student congress. I
sincerely feel that the guidelines
present in it can effectively aid
us in accomplishing our tasks. In
my four years here I have come
to love our university and to
recognize her traditions and her
goals. To both we must move
forward as an efficient and con-
cerned student body.
I am running for this office
because I am interested in the
Student Government of Hardin-
Simmons. I feel because I served
on the Student Congress this
year that I am capable of doing
an even better job next year if
elected. To do the best job a
person must become involved
with every phase of the Student
Goternmentf I have done this
and feel confident that I can do
the job I must however have
It has become my privilege to
have the opportunity to present
myself as a candidate for the
Vice-Presidency of the student
body. In running for this office
I will be attempting to accomplish
some of the following:
(1). To promote better com-
munication between the adminis-
tration and the students by en-
couraging better representation
of one to the other.
(2) To promote more activity
and participation in areas of inter-
murals and planned social func-
tions. (3) To work toward helping
every student in the University
to feel a part of it's program.
The preceding statements are
not inclusive of my whole plat-
form but they do represent some
just ideas in its foundation.
I believe that serving on the
Student Congress of Hardin-Sim-mons
is one of the most respon-
sible jobs on the Hardin-Simmons
campus. I served the Freshman
Class as representative this last
year and I feel as though I can
do a more adequate job next year
year because of my past experi-
ence. I would appreciate your
vote for Sophomore Representa-
tive. Mike Wilson
I feel that there should be bet-
ter representation in the Student
Congress for the Sophomore Class.
Every class member should have
the privilege to express his views
on student affairs and know that
his opinion is appreciated and
will be considered. My aim is to
represent "YOU" the class mem-
ber and not a social club or other
I have been associated with
student council work before and
I feel that I can represent you
sufficiently. So remember to
vote for the person who will rep-
resent every member of the class.
My platform is built of two
major planks. The first of these
planks is the promotion of better
relations between the administra-
tion the faculty and us the stu-
dents. The second plank is for
a better informed citizenry.
Here at Hardin-Simmons I see
the need for better understanding
between the administration in-
cluding the faculty and the stu-
dents. I propose to accomplish
these better relations through the
suggestion of faculty-student dis-
cussions and possibly faculty-student
Secondly I believe that it is
the duty of a representative to
keep the group which he is rep-
resenting well informed of the ac-
tions of the House of Representa-
tives as well as his own personal
actions. I firmly believe that this
is a major duty of the representative.
As a Freshman Representative
I have worked on various com-
mittees and obtained quite a bit
of practical experience in helping
a student government to func-
tion smoothly and efficiently. I
am currently serving as the
Speaker Pro-Tempore of the
House of Representatives. Hold-
ing this office has been given me
further insight into the opera-
tion of a student government.
I feel I have learned much this
year; I would like to use this ex-
perience to serve you next year.
I can only promise to finish the
jobs that I have started and to
accomplish new assignments to
the best of my ability.
As a candidate for Sophomore
Representative I Mary Lois Pat-
terson support the following
ideas for improving the student
government of Hardin-Simmons
University. (1) Increased represen-
tation of actual student body opin-
ion through student polls con-
ducted for the purpose of deter-
mining student preference on
points of question and more per-
sonal contact between congress-
men and students; (2) A more
active Judiciary Committee which
will deal with student traffic ap
peals election disputes and pub-
lication of policies and regula-
tions in an effort to make this a
body to which students will more
readily appeal; (3) The placing
of greater stress on the activities
provided on campus a more even-
ly distributed arrangement of
school activities improvement of
annual events such as the all-
school picnic and new activities
such as an outdoor carnival and
spring all-school play day.
Following one term as Fresh-
man Representative I feel I have
acquired a working knowledge of
our student government and its
problems and would like to see
this government through the
House of Representatives work
better for every Hardin-Simmons
A few people attempt to repre-
sent an entire class. I am one
of these people. In studying the
constitution of the Student Asso-
ciation I realized the duties a
member of the House of Repre-
sentatives accepts. The House
shares the responsibilities of
planning and bringing about leg-
islation on an equal status with
the Senate. Therefore there is a
need for responsible people in the
House. I have shown my ability
to accept responsibility in becom
ing school photographer.
The position I hold on the
Brand the Bronco and the Public
Information Office enable me to
be in close contact with the opin-
ions of the students. This close
contact broadened by attending
Vanderbilt University for a year
qualify me as a class representative
