Campus Political Parties
List Campaign Platforms
Both campus political parties, the AGS and USA, yesterday announ
ced the platforms on which their canddates will run in the elections Wed
While the platforms vary in many respects, both favor more student
participation in university affairs, especially student participation in
the direction of the student union.
We believe that the University of
Oregon exists for the purpose of
training the students for a fuller
and better informed life; that the
student government of the Univer
sity of Oregon exists, for the pur
pose of training students to make
fundamental decisions, and for edu
cating them for the fuller, responsi
bilities of citizenship.
In order that such a government
may function to its fullest potenti
alities, there musf be a maximum of
student interest, and there must be
action upon the part of the duly
elected representatives of the stu
We the members of the Associat
ed Greek Students believe that to
further such a policy, there must be
responsibility, continuity, and a sin
cere desire for complete student
We further believe that there
have been certain areas of student
government, which either through
lack of action, or lack of informa
tion, have not been fully developed.
Therefore, since the campus exists
for the students, let the students
help run the campus.
Ours is a program of increased
student interest, and of action by
student representatives. Ours is the
hope for interest and for action.

dent Union direction by means of a
paid under-graduate representa
tive, or a board representative of
the student body—whichever is
chosen by the student in open elec
2. University policy, on student is
sues decided by means of joint stu
dent-faculty decision. Since it is the
affair of both—both should have a
say in it’s determination. No school
can exist without students and fac
ulty; no institution can be healthy
without full particiaptoin by both.
3. Relaxed censorship of student
activities and publications. If the
students of this university are ever
to lead adult and reasoned lives,
they should be able to make deci
sions themselves without naive, if,
well intended, “protection.”

government. It can occur only if
that student government takes ac
tion in the interest of the sudents.
The students have the right to
be informed of the decision of their
government, and to take a part in
the formulation of these decisions.
tVe believe in publication of com
plete minutes of all Executive
Council meetings, the encourage
ment of student attendance at these
Executive Council meetings, and a
definite effort by the student gov
ernment to work in the best inter
est of the student body.
We believe that our responsibili

party, but to the student-body as a
whole; for our existence depends
upon the policies we state and our
abilities to put there policies into

in the fact that although officers
