Cobs and also a Council member,
said, "Every organization has the
right to elect their officers the way
they want to. Last year we had, a
vote on changing this and it was
defeated by a two thirds vote."
"This manner of electing officers
keeps politics out it," Spilker said.
"Furthermore the old officers
know the men better than the new
members. The officers know them
as workers for two years."
Burt Weichenthal, Ag College
representative and a member of
Corn Cobs, said, "Pretty respon
sible people have to head up this
group because of the money it han
dles. Who should know better than
the officers who is trustworthy?"
Barbara Lantz, Tassals repre
sentative on the Council, pointed
out that Tassals is a very simi
lar organization and their entire
students object to the present sys
tem of 8-day exams. The students
do not have enuogh time to review
for exams, he brought out in his
The reason to which he attrib
uted the present situation was,
"The faculty's viewpoint to give
them more time to grade papers.
Since it is the students that the
University exists for, we think this
is unfair."
The students seemed to favor
the two-week schedule, he said
The reasons he gave for this were:
1) the two-week exam period is
profitable for the good student who
uses this time wisely for review;
2) The two-week exam period usu
ally spreads exams out so more
attention can be given to each
course; 3) A recuperation period
which is necessary in a con
centrated 8-day schedule is not
warranted in the 2-week exam
schedule; 4) Polls of students show
tHat the 2-week exam schedule is
favored over any other proposed
exam schedule.
"The University exists for the stu
dents and therefore the students'
wishes and desires should be
major factor in- determining ad
ministrative policy," Smith said.
