Some Bad Decisions

The political situation which has
evoked this week on campus is one
of oddest and most complex we have
e- o a summer session election.
o politicians, after staving Op all
'k : it every night for the past 48
have finally worked out the', 1 deals, and agreements
'licit resulted in the slate presented
to the voters yesterday afternoon.
hile politics on this campus has
always been a complex affair,
even the rules of the game as layed
dov n by the politicians themselves
have received a rough-going over in
the past few days.
Here, in a nutshell, are some of
the things which have caused the
Summer Gator much concern:
* lie
1) The decision to run a coendors coendorsed
ed coendorsed slate, made up of members, half halfand-half,
and-half, halfand-half, of the University and Ga Gator

As this editorial is w ritten, it ap appears
pears appears that there will be no contest
for any of the 30 posts up for elec election,
tion, election, except possibly some last min minute
ute minute contest for one or two of the top
posts up for student body selection.
What this means, of course, is that
the politicians have not named the
candidates, they have announced
the winners.
ft seems hard for us to believe
that on a campus this size, that not
enough students could be convinced
to run, and thereby provide the stud students
ents students with a real two-party choice.
Representative government has
gone down the drain w hen politicians
set themselves up to decide that there
is to be no contest for a Student Gov Government
ernment Government election.

8 2) The decision to hold summer
elections next Thursday instead of
next Tuesday, even though the Con Constitution
stitution Constitution states implicitly that the
elections are to be held the second
Tuesday after classes commence.
Both the date of election and the
final deadline for qualifying so? of office
fice office were moved back two days by
the summer school Election Board, in
order to give the politicians more time
to w ork out their slates.
The result was, that even w ith the
extension in time, the string-pullers
could not unanimously agree on many
of the candidates to represent them
on the combined ticket by 3 oclock
yesterday afternoon
The delay in elections, further furthermore,
more, furthermore, was unnecessary. It indicates
that the politicians, in order to obtain
their ends, will even resort to irregu-
larities with the summer election /

3) The ethics used by some of the
politicians. Rarely has such bitterness
preceded a campaign for election. The
back-room techniques used this w eek
were certainly not exemplary.
Such tactics do not increase the
chance that once the candidates are
in office, they will work harmonious harmoniously

this for how else could the 2W

these are not only worthless but
also fail to furnish a good time

Politicians Offer CoendorSed Slate For SG;
Walt Mattson Seeks Summer Presidency

Everybody Happy;
No Campaign Now
Campus politics, usually a simplified process during the summer
session, ran into several snags and ended up in one of the most fever feverish,
ish, feverish, mixed up dilemmas in many years.
Local politics as a rule try to make the election as cut and dried
am possible, not relishing a whirlwind campaign that is featured in
the Fall and notably the Spring elections.
For the past years the fraternity blocs which oppose each other
*o vigorously during the regular semester have used the technique
of a co-endorsement in .the summer by which both the parties agree
to sponsor the same candidates.
Thus with & minimum of prespiration and poop, the politicians
resolve the voters dilemma at the polls on election day with the
simplest of devicesone candidate.
Thus local observers were not surprised when the University and
th* Gator Party caucused and decided upon an equitable distribution
of candidates each would put forth.
* * .*.,
In e>arly meetings the Gator Party nominated ( lain I c Alien.
Sigma Chi, for president and put up John Philpott, for the second
spot on the slate.
Rumors circulated that Walt Mattson was going to run on an
opposition ticket as a direct snub at the aggregate power of the
fraternities that seemingly would be 100 percent against him.
(Mattson has been one of the independent leaders of the University
Party in the past.
Events proceeded smoothly as both parties began to round out
their respective slates with a minimum of friction.
Then as Mattson began to loom larger as a real threat to the
monopoly of the hybrid Gator University Party, Claude Allen wonj
ttie nomination only on the basis that he would accept if he would
be unopposed.
He said he could not devote'the necessary time to a full-fledged
Later developments left the University side without a 'Veep
candidate also.
Thus in dramatii meetings lasting all Wednesday night and'
Thursday up until the 4:30 deadline, leaders ran into snag after snag
in an effort to compromise several factions.
A three hour meeting at the Sigma Chi house resulted in Archie
MeKendree, A GEL a compromise candidate introduced by former
Party spokesman Bill Birchfield, as candidate for president.
Brought up in the discussion were A1 Millar. Pike, and Harry
Mahon, SAE, who deadlocked in several ballots.
At the time of the balloting, MeKendree could not be reached
but Birchfield assured them that he would be available to run.
Meanwhile at the Phi Gam house caucusing started somewhatj
later with John Price, Chi Phi. and Luke McKissack. independent, in
contention for the vice-president spot. This continued into the wee
hours of the morning and actually nothing resolved.
Meanwhile the Gator Party ran into trouble in the fact that
Archie MeKendree, who had remained oblivious of his nomination!
for quite some time, refused to run.
This then \*a* (lie dilemma of Thursday morning of the only
organized party on the entire campus, one that commanded the votes
of all of the fraternities without exception.
In then- quest to find a candidate who was acceptable to the!
majority, and whose qualifications were comparable to Walt Mattson,
they had failed. And the deadline just nine hours away loomed
In leaving no stone unturned in their efforts, negotiations were
conducted with Walt to see if an agreement could be struck with pos posof
of posof all the fraternities on the campus.
As the day wore on it was increasinigly evident that it was
going to be hard to come to any completely satisfying agreement
among the party leaders.
'And if anyone has ever seen fifteen to thirty politicians try to
meet during a regular school day. much less decide on such a,
momentous issue as the presidential candidate, they know what can
The results of the various meetings are now known. However.*
Jiey are a far cry from what was expected by anyone, least of all
those who considered themselves "in the know" Wednesday night.
In retrospect, it is evident that the combined Gator-University j
Party could have probably elected almost any candidate they chose;
to run.

the dissention and lethargy of the coalition that has apparently apparentlyput
