Junior Staff Writer
After declaring Inter-Dor-mitory
Association (IDA)
vice-president elect Nancy
Martson, Selleck sophomore,
ineligible, the Inter-Dormitory
Coordinating Committee
iTDCC) voted Wednesday to
conduct & special election
April 6 to fill the vicepresi
dential vacancy.
Applications for the execu
tive position will "be accepted
at the initial meeting of the
IDA Council March 22 at
8 p.m. in Abel Hall.
At the meeting, whrich the
IDA functioned as the IDA
Court, Paul Canarsk;p, Abel
sophomore, who lost to Miss
Martson in last weekfs elec
tion 1,143 to 713, was not de
clared vice-presidenlt. He'
lacked the required 40 per
cent vote as stated in the
IDA constitution.
Miss Martson, a transfer
student from Cottey College
in Nevada, Missouri, moved
into a University residence
hall last September at the
beginning of the present ac
ademic year.
The IDA constitution states
that each member of the ex
ecutive committee ((president,
v i c e-president, secretary,
treasurer) must nave been a
resident of a University re
sidence hall for at least one
year, leaving Miss Martson
three months short of the re
quired residence.
Regretable Mistake
""This was a regretable and
inexcusable mistake' on the
part of the IDCC not to rea
lize that Nancy was ineligible
to hold office (on the execu
tive committee said IDA
President John Fryar,
"She was declared ineligi
ble because of a technicality
not because of lack of inter
est in the IDA," be added,
"and I hope that I will be
able to use her in a major
capacity since the vote indi
cated that a majority of the
students want her,"
Most Disappointing
Miss Martson, SellecY's
Eessey House scholastic di
rector, said that the decision
to declare her ineligible was
""the most disappointing thing
that has ever happened to
I knew it would turn out
this way," she added, ""as I
talked with several Commit
tee members the night before
the meeting and they told me
how they would vote in the
"'I'm willing to do my very
best in whatever position
John asks me to take," she
said. ""I hone this incident
doesnt weaken the IDA or
get it off to a poor start"
Only Course
Abel-Sandoz president and
IDCC representative, Wayne
Morton, called the decision
the only course of action that
could be followed.
"If we went against the
constitution at the very
start," he said, HIt would
put the organization in a poor
"We realize the amount of
work and effort Nancy put
in the election and we hope
she keeps wp her interest,"
Morton added, 'We will en
joy working with her in what
ever role she plays in the
Meets Opposition
The decision met with op
position from Norm Mattson,
Canarsky's campaign manag
er and Jim Arundel, Canar-
sky's unsuccessful presiden
tial running mate m last
week's election. They fee!
that Canarsky is the vice
president regardless of the
IDCC's decision that be didn't
achieve the necessary 40 per
cent vote,
""Parliamentary procedures
say that if a candidate is
ruled ineligible," Arundel
said, "then all the votes cast
for that candidate are ruled
Votes Invalid
According to their opinion,
since Miss Martson was
ruled ineligible at the IDCC
meeting, the votes she re
ceived are invalid.
""Throwing out her invalid
votes, Paul received about
99 per cent of the valid votes
in the election," Mattson
said, "and thus he was elect
ed vice-president of IDA."
They both agreed that since
Miss Martson was ruled inel
igible, ""Canarsky is the vice
president and there is no
question about this course of
Didn't Attend
They explained they didn't
bring up this view at Wednes
day's meeting because they
were requested not U attend
the meeting by an IDCC rep
resentative. Arundel staled they would
appeal their case to toe IDCC
if necessary and ""it should
not be necessary to do so."
The Wednesday meeting
was the final IDCC confer
ence as the IDCC disbanded
after Thursday's meeting at
Gather HalL As the IDCCs
last official function IDCC
chairman Jim Ludwig swore
in Fryar as the initial IDA
Accomplished Goals

existence, accomplished th
goals at was established to
achieve. After the initial con
stitution was tisined down by
the dormitories six to four
earlier last semester, the
IDCC organized another
election Feb. 21 whn the re
sidence halls voted to form
the IDA Fryar and the now
ineligible vice-president Nancy
Martson were elected by the
residence halls as executive
officers two weeks later.
Fryar indicated that sever
al IDCC representatives
would continue in some IDA
capacity as they would be
considered for high appoint
ments or positions on the
