Follows 3 Other Fraternities TEP Leaves Union By JAY CRESSWELL Chronicle News Editor Tau Epsilon Phi followed the lead of three other fraternities in pulling out of the Union Party last night. In a last-minute move before the convention, TEP's delegation chairman, Eliot Zide '64, withdrew his fraternity from the party because "In lining up with other fraternities and independents, I thought it would be possible to get enough people out of the party to insure that the present party system would no longer exist. Party chairman Carl Conrad '65 said the reason for TEP's withdrawal was that they learned that their candidates could not be nominated in the party. He also added that the same applied to the other three fraternities which withdrew from the party, Sigma Nu, Lambda Chi Alpha, and Theta Chi. Conrad also predicted that this would be the last year for the party system in West Campus elections. Next year "nominations may be a campus-wide caucus." The delegation chairman of*" Theta Chi, William Olson '65, explained his fraternity's reason for leaving the party was "due to the excessive political manipulations by certain elements in the Union Party which result in the nominations of not necessarily the most qualified candidates." "Sigma Nu's position is unchanged. The Union Party is controlled from behind the scenes by a small faction of independents and one fraternity. Very simply, the whole thing is a farce and we'd rather run our candidates without party affiliation," was the official statement from the fraternity. In answering the charges of the withdrawing fraternities, Conrad said that the events were the fault of the system. He stated that the convention is not fixed, but in critical areas some understandings are reached in advance. Another Union Party delegate, Dave Newsome '64, said, "I feel that the recent pull-outs from the Union Party were prompted by the fact that certain groups were not so adept at making deals as others. This state of affairs is indicative of nothing more exciting than the fact that the present party system is an unworkable way of nominating candidates." Eleven rising seniors, six from Trinity College, four from the Woman's College and one from the School of Nursing will sit on next year's Student Union Board of Governors. Those from Trinity College are Lee Kuntz, chairman of this year's educational affairs committee; Phillip Lamotte; Michael I. Peterson, co-chairman of the special activities committee; Leon Rice, member of the major attractions committee; Robert Sheheen, chairman of the major attractions committee; and Thomas Treptow, member of the special services committee. Three To Seek MSGA Presidency; Campus, Union Choose Candidates West's political conventions last night saw the nomination of Ray E. Ratliff, Campus Party, and O. Randolph Rollins, Union Party, to oppose previously declared independent candidate Richard C. Lam in a three-way battle for the presidency of the Men's Student Government Association. Rollins is serving on the present Senate as junior-independent Senator. Ratliff has served for two years on the body —first as sophomore-independent Senator and currently as treasurer. Lam, formerly sophomore class vice-president, is now secretary of the MSGA. The Campus Party last night nominated a nearly complete slate of MSGA candidates, Trinity College class officers and members of boards and councils in only an hour of deliberation. In addition to Ratliff, Campus nominated Robert C. Campbell '65 for vice-president, Frank M. Mock '66 for secretary and William P. Hight '66 for treasurer. For the six Senate seats Campus chose Ward R. Scull, senior - fraternity; R. Mac Rankin Jr., senior-independent; John C. Reynolds, junior-fraternity; W. Gary Romp, junior-independent; James K. Hasson Jr., sophomore- fraternity; and John C. Miller Jr., sophomore-independent. The Union Party, which delayed many nominations until tonight, picked eight candidates for MSGA office in one hour and thirty minutes of balloting. One more fraternity, Tau Epsilon Phi, withdrew from the ranks of the fragmented Union Party to reduce fraternity allegiance to five in that party. Besides Rollins, the party nominated John G. Morris *Jr. '66 for secretary of the student government legislative organ. The Union Party also nominated the following men for the Senate: John C. Spencer, senior- fraternity; C. Denny White Jr, senior-independent; George W". Patton Jr., junior fraternity; Elder L. Shearon, junior-independent; H. Ross Arnold III, sophomore-fraternity; G. John Poe Jr., sophomore-independent. The remainder of the Union (Continued on Page 4) Eleven Rising Seniors Named To SU Board of Governors The new members from East Campus will be Ursula Ehrhardt, a member of the educational affairs committee; Jane McCIeary, a member of the social committee; Barbara Morgan, fine arts committee member; and Ellen Pressman, co-chairman of the special activities committee. Mary Alyce Searles, member of the social committee, will be the Nursing School's representative. The function of the Board of Governors, according to present chairman Philip C. Odgen '64, is to act as governing body of the Student Union by setting its policy and regulating its program. Forgery The letter to the editor entitled 'He Was Weak,' which appears unsigned in most copies of today's Chronicle, was discovered to be a forgery too late to make any substitution on page two. Pages two, three, six and seven went to press yesterday afternoon. Security Council Added This Year UN Model Assembly To Convene Here Thursday The sixth annual Middle South Regional United Nations Model General Assembly will meet here in committees, caucuses and plenaries this week to promote better understanding of the work of the UN and encourage interest in the organization. In mock sessions lasting through Saturday over 350 delegates, alternates and advisers will tackle world problems which the UN has already considered, voting in accordance with and reflecting at all times the attitudes of the countries they represent. Model Security Council A Model Security Council, ordinarily not a part of the General Assembly, has been added this year in order to cover race problems fully Chaired by Philip P. Lader '66, the Council of one delegate and alternate from each of the 11 member nations of the Security Council will discuss race relations in South Africa. The official opening of the General Assembly will take place Thursday morning with the opening plenary, or full assembly, the keynote address being given by Dr. Arthur Larson, director of the World Rule of Law Center at the University. The plenaries will be presided over by Michael H. Lawler, President of the student body at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, who will serve as Presi- ident of the Model Asssembly. 45 Delegations Seventy-five of the countries of the UN will be represented by delegations from 45 colleges and Universities in 11 states. The delegations will sit together as one in the plenaries, later splitting into committees for discussion. Patterned after the UN com- ittees, four groups will present resolutions concerning refugees, international trade, apartheid and a capital development fund. The committees —Economic, chaired by Philip Ogden '64; Political, chaired LARSON by Thomas Steele '64; Social, Humanitarian and Cultural; and Administrative and Budgetary -— will discuss the assigned resolutions and introduce others. Those which pass will be referred to the Conference Committee for review and then be submitted to the plenaries. DR. TRAN Delegations at the plenary sessions will vote on the accepted resolutions, those passing being adopted as official statements of the Model Assembly. Dr. Tran Van Chuong The major speaker of the four-day session will be Dr. (Continued on page 5)
