Vote Total Election
Again we are in the uncomfortable position of guessing
what the House of Representatives did last night due to an
early deadline for the Tuesday Brand.
Likely the House accepted the recommendations of its
election committee and called a constitutional amendment
election for November 29 to judge a proposed amendment
which would require the release of vote totals in campus poli-
tical elections.- If the recommendation to call the election was
accepted the climax of the controversy involving the release
of vote totals may be near at hand.
A second recommendation of the committee if accepted
may present problems. The committee voted down a motion
that the election be held in a Friday assembly thus assuring
the 35 per cent participation of the student body in the election
that is necessary for ratification which requires a simple
majority. Instead the committee decided to recommend that
the election polling be done in the SUB and in Abilene Hall.
Considering the hot-and-cold interest on campus it is pos-
sible that the 35 per cent will not cast votes under this arrange-
ment. This is a precarious situatidn at best regardless of
which side demands your loyalty.
Prognostications at this time invite disaster. Obviously
student body opinion is in a state of considerable fluidity
owing largely to the high feelings of those on either side of
the question. Who can say what the mood will be by
The Brand will provide a platform for debate on both
sides of the question not a new policy by the way although
the newspaper has been much accused lately of extreme
partisanship distortion of the news misquotations quotations
used out of context etc. etc. The attacks have not grown less
intense or more reasonable.
In light of recent accusations we are reminded of the
words of an Abilene politician who grew wise in his service
"Gentlemen I am convinced that probably the newspaper
doesn't misquote us so often; things just look different when
they're in print."

San Marcos Tempers flared at Southwest Texas State
College when two students set up headquarters in front of the
Student Center and distributed anti-war leaflets.
The two students who received permission from the
Dean of Students to pass out the material said that their pur-
pose was to stir up student interest because they felt that the
whole campus was apathetic.
A move was started to burn the literature and a small bon-
fire using the anti-war leaflets was started on the steps of
the Student Center.

the student body? This is a
question that has been the sub-
ject of much discussion all over
the campus for the last few
weeks. Because of the initiative
taken by 221 members of the
Student Association last week
the subject will be opened to
the Association in the near
The House elections commit-
tee has decided that the election
will be held on November 29
and that voting will take place
in the Student Center and in
Abilene Hall. If this recom-
mendation is passed by the
House than that will be the pro-
cedure for the election. The
election is for an amendment
to the Student Association Con
stitution and in order for it to
pass the following procedure
must be followed.
The amendment will become
part of the Constitution if
thirty-five per cent of the Stu-
dent Association votes and a
majority of the students vot-
ing vote affirmatively. The
amendment will fail of course
if a majority of the students who
vote vote negatively or if less
than thirty-five per cent of the
Student Association votes.
Bedause the vote will not be
taken in assembly the students
will again have to use their in-
itiative to get out and vote. Ac-
cording to my calculations
(which are not official) thirty-
five per cent of the Student As-
sociation is 625 people. This is
just thirty-seven less than voted
in the general election last fall.
It is my hope that the students
will again have to use their in-
vote whether or not they are
for the amendment. It will be
sad indeed if less than the
needed thirty-five per cent of
the Association cast a vote. In
a matter that has received such
a great amount of publicity and
has been the source of so much
controversy I cannot help but
think that the students are in-
terested enough to vote.
Again let me urge that you
as students of H-SU use your
power to vote so that a true pic-
ture of student opinion will be
gained by this upcoming election.
Deland Florida Stetson University students huffed and
puffed at a smoke-in in hopes of getting back their cigarette
machines. Free cigarettes were passed out and music was
played for the occasion.
The administration of the coeducational Southern Bap-
tist school banned the sale of cigarettes on campus after the
U. S. Surgeon General's report on smoking and health but
continued to permit smoking in' dormitories and some class-
rooms. Dave Finley who spearheaded the campaign said Its
a pretty good little walk to buy cigarettes. We're just trying
to get them sold on campus."
