nine Campus Party organizations.
This same source listed five groups

Frank Schollett, seeking the .CP
presidential nomination, said yesterday that Jones and he had
started to run as a team, but have
now decided to enter the convention on a separate basis.
Schollett also said the two football houses are not committed to
any presidential candidate. They
will vote for Schollett for vice
Cox, the third candidate in the
race, said he was in the race to
stay. He said he was encouraged
soundings of various
Campus Party organizations.
Besides Schollett, Bob Perkins,
running with Cox, is the second
vice presidential candidate.
Bob White, Little Kentucky Derby chairman, who was considered
a potential candidate several weeks
ago, will keynote the CP convention tonight.
The outcome of the presidential
race may have a lot of bearing on
the vice presidential picture. .
When White's name was being
considered for president, Jones'
name came into the vice presidential picture. It is conceivable
that if Jones fails in his presidential bid, his name may be placed
in the vice presidential race.
Since Cassis entered the race,
the CP has been in a more uncertain position. Yesterday

in the weekly Campus Party meeting to reconsider last week's motion of membership for the varsity
football house. The motion was
presented by a representative of
Bob Perkins, candidate for the
CP vice presidential nomination,
mentioned the possibility of a split
in the party "if two large organizations are allowed to dominate.
Perkins was referring to Schollett's

football house and SAE fraternity.
