Transcript President-elect Jim Evans makes his campaign points to Mrs. Charles Barry. The Daily Cougar, refusing to support one candidate and pointing to the weaknesses of both sides, received charges of "irresponsible journalism at Sound-off discussions. Chesterfield Bass, first Negro senator at UH, declares his intentions of "hammering his way to democracy and freedom" during election debates. Election Heralds New Era This year, for the first time in UH election history two separate, distinct and powerful forces appeared in campus politics. The new alignment resulted in a split ticket. The Student Political Party took the presidency and the Greek non-slate won the vice-presidency. Three votes decided the presidential race. Jim Evans SPP nominee, received 1,495 votes and his opponent, Mike Driscoll, non-slate candidate, chalked up 1,492. Dick Hancock won over his rival, Ransom Forman, SPP, by a substantial margin—1,529-1,234 in the vice-presidential contest. Students also elected 30 senators, two University Center Policy Board members and passed two constitutional a- mendments concerning UH's entry into the National Student Association. The usual charges of smear tactics and campaign irregularities were in evidence and in greater abundance. After the results were in, Driscoll said "I think the students deserve another election because 1 do not think a SA president would be effective with the students, administrators and senators knowing that he won by only three votes when there were over 17 more votes cast than can be accounted for." Charges of illegal campaigning and other voting irregularities were taken to the Election Commission. The election code contains a clause requiring all evidence of election discrepancies to be in to the commission within 24 hours of the results. For this reason several complaints not filed before Saturday morning were dismissed by the commission and results of all races were certified. To the decision of the commission not to admit new evidence Driscoll said, "I feel that the election commission is, and was, politically biased and the only place we can get a fair hearing is the Student Court." 58
