Transcript Henry Allee campaigns for Senate seat in front of M. D. Anderson Library. Sandra Scott and Jim Horn assist students Sharon Brooks and Sandra Garcia at the polls. Campus Politics Reach New High with Cougar Editorial Richard Gaghagen was elected for a second term as president of the* Student Association. Gaghagen won over Tom Koebernick, political science junior, by a 250-vote margin. Twenty-nine student Senate seats, two University Center Policy Board positions and the Vice- presidency of the SA were also filled. Candidates voiced their platforms to students at a series of debates held in the Sound Off area. Highlighting the debates was the face-to face confrontation between presidential candidates Gaghagen and Koebernick. Two amendments were proposed by the Senate for student approval. The first of the measures, which was defeated, recommended the abolition of the constitutional requirement for members to hold monthly constituency meetings. The second, which passed, was a proposal to change the procedure used in filling senate vacancies. This spring's general election marked the advent of a new style of campus politics: open alignment of organizations along a Greek vs. independent division. The Daily Cougar published its support of presidential candidate Tom Koebernick in a front page editorial. The editorial called for a change in the SA. "The Student Senate has become more active this past year, but action is not being taken on much of the legislation which is passed. This is a duty of the President and the executive departments," said the editorial. "Down with the Daily Cougar," became the cry of a few students, unhappy with the Cougar's endorsement of Koebernick. At a demonstration in front of the Cougar office, they waved signs that read, "Sour Grapes Mr. Daigle?" and burned Cougars that displayed the front page editorial in favor of Koebernick. Jossana Bratis persuades student to vote for Greek slate candidates. 52
