Statement of Policy

"As stated last election, it seems to me unpractical, because of unforeseen circumstances arising, to state any policy towards specific projects. I feel that all students should be encouraged to enter wholeheartedly into the Student Union Building funds raising campaign among Association members. I would stress that I consider freedom in the university obliges students to participate in college activities; and I am opposed to any outside interference whatsoever in college affairs. If I am elected to office. I intend to act as I have tried to in the past, as a Christian student, assessing necessary action on any question by what I feel is in the interests of the student body as a whole."
