In ASUO Election
By Laura Sturges
An all-campus primary during
spring term student body elec

dents interviewed Friday, but
many professed to know little
about the plan proposed by the
United Students association.
The plan, presented to the
ASUO senate Thursday by USA

a good idea; it will make a lot of
needless work for those concern

idea. Perhaps it would interest the
students in learning about their
