Remember Promises
Now that all of the new Student Council members are
settling back in the glow of their new found positions,
all of the back-slapping and electioneering has died
down and all the campaign posters are taken down, it
is hoped that the promises made during the campaign
will not be lost with the post-election discards in the
University incinerator.

nucleus of advertisers, th
station has had difficulty In
attracting the nesessary ex
tra advertisers to maintain
its expanding functions and
its desired quality. These
advertisers have resorted to
the echo chambers, the jin
gles, and general sensation
alism employed by many
AM stations to sell their
products. They have felt
that the general buying pub
lic was not resnond'n? t
the quiet, well-modulated
advertising practices em
ployed by the station.
In an announcement from
the station the point was
made: "Many who buy
time unwittingly spend too
much of their advertising
dollars for mediocrity. They
pay for and maintain those
low standards which they
set. At whose expense? Not
only theirs, but also at the
expense of our youngsters
and the many adults, who
believe in good sound cul
tural values ..."
The answer? KFMQ has

This is, again, a shame.

anyone who is interested is

The cub group has several
ourposes: one of which is to
be of service to incoming
freshmen women who show
an interest in journalism. It
is to encourage an interest in
jors as well as to give the un
derclass majors a chance to
become better acquainted
with their field and the peo

Theta Sig cubs are respon

still has the printing equip

near future to discuss the
plan further.
