Some time ago the faculty had indirectly turned down the group's request for recognition by passing a resolution saying no political group would be recognized here. Monday's action was only to approve the Democrat club and not to give blanket recognition to all political clubs. A spokeman for the faculty said each petition for recognition .would be considered individually. Campus Republican ieaaers have sponsored a GOP club and spokesmen said steps soon would be taken to make it legal on campus. The Democratic Club is headed by Thomas C. Carroll of the Law College. He issued a statement saying: "Students here are gratified at the action of the faculty in recognizing the organization of the club. It is felt that such organizations will be of real value to the University and the state through the stimulation of interest in practical political activities." Carroll said the purpose of the club will be to encourage registration among the students for voting, to encourage absentee voting and student discussions of political questions. He emphasized the club would not in any of its activities intentionally create an impression that it represents the University or that the University approves of the club's views. Other officers of the club include Tom Underwood Jr., Jennings Kear-b- y, Judy Keen Johnson and Elizabeth Bicknell, vice presidents, Joyce Anne Harris, secretary, Robert Babbage, treasurer, and Professors Paul Oberst and Elvis J. Stahr of the College of Law, faculty advisors. $ SUB Elects j 1 The University faculty Monday partially reversed its stand on campus political clubs and approved the petition of a Young Democratic Club .3 rwritv There must be some junior man who could use a $200 scholarship. The members of Lances, junior men's leadership society, are beginning to think there isn't. Two weeks ago they offered, through the Kernel, a $200 award to a worthy man who would meet certain qualifications. No one applied. The offer is still on, however, according to Roy Wallace, Lances president. Deadline for applying has been extended to April 20. Dr. Clark To Teach This Summer Abroad Dr. Thomas D.
