Transcript Student boredom transcends provocative issues An unusually high turnout for the rs! day of Student Senate elections in ebruary deceitfully indicated a new vave of interest in student government. But low second day totals reaf- :irmed the perennial election disinterest. Only 3100 students took to the polls after weeks of campaigning by several candidates. The major issues, centering on the controversial Mission Self-Study plan, drew seven parties into the race for top students' Association positions. Candidates were independent Wes Wright, and those of the Enlightened Student Darty (ESP), Students Concerned for Post-Secondary Education (SCOPE), Good Government Group (GGG), Gay Activist Alliance (GAA), A Better Campus (ABC), and the Young Socialist Alliance (YSA). While the most contested issue was the ceiling enrollment of 30,000 proposed by Mission Self-Study, platforms also addressed themselves to lower Student Service Fees, larger parking areas, a campus pub, and increased involvement of the commuter-oriented student body. Although most senatorial positions were decided at the primary election, with Rick Brass securing the title of SA elections Student Regent, presidential candidates were forced into a run-off. A shortage of polling personnel necessitated a postponement of the subsequent run-off between ESP candidate Joel Jesse and SCOPE opponent Tobin Englett. After the one-week delay, Jesse and running mate Keith Wade captured 1590 of the total 2962 votes cast, 218 more than the Englett and Sabala ticket. Below Jayo Washington (Sr-Jou) signs in on the student roster, becoming part of the voting ten percent of UH's 30,000.
