Traveling Photo Exhibit To Be Displayed At UK Vol. L LEXINGTON, KY., TUESDAY, APRIL Charles Cassis, Sigma Nu, has announced his candidacy for the Campus Party nomination for president of Student Congress. Cassis will be competing with Taylor Jones and Phil Cox, both previously announced candidates, in the CP convention tonight in Memorial Hall. He officially entered the race over the weekend. A high source in the Jones camp said last week that their forces were claiming support from some nine Campus Party organizations. This same source listed five groups ticas supporting the ket and two uncommitted delegations. The candidacy of Cassis has caused some changes. The Sigma Nu delegation, originally claimed . by Jones, will vote for Cassis tonight. A source close to the Cassis campaign said the announcement has received "favorable reactions" several delegations.

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 president. Cox, the third candidate in the race, said he was in the race to stay. He said he was encouraged by early 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 forces presented a motion 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 TKE fraternity. 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 organized support from both the football house and SAE fraternity. on Cox-Perki- ns Continued On Page 3 Sunday Movie "DIAL 'M FOR MURDER starring Grace Kelly, Ray Mil-la- nd and Robert Cummlngs, will be shown Sunday, April 19, in the Student Union Ballroom. sponsored The movie will be shown at 4:30 and SUB-YMC- A at 7:30 25 p. m.
