New By-Law
Will Play Up
Parfy Labels
The student senate at Oklahoma if
A&M recently passed a by-law !y
which "requires that the party 1"
affiliation of a student filing forli
campus office be placed on the
ballot" f
The new ruling, accordine to the 9
Daily O'Collegian, "will eliminate
many of the 'shady' practices that! i
have resulted in past elections . . J
Under the new law, student voters iP
will not be influenced by 'fake' j
ballots bearing the name of oneU
party and the candidates of the,
other. With the party name ap
pearing on the ballot, the student
can easily determine which party

is voting lor.
But the O'Collegian auicklv
points out that, at the same time,
"the new by-law will tend to
eliminate personalities from the
election. The name of the political
party will be played up more, and
less emphasis will be placed upon
the individual qualifications of the
candidate running for a particular a
