some small bit of knowledge regarding the candidates and their qualifications may seep into
i he heads of the voters. Too, there is the belief that, because xililics play such an iniXrlaiu
role in the everyday world, the realistic approach is lest. Recognie campus politics, welcome the gcxid points, and trv to discard the
bad.
Candidates, themselves, are expected 10 shake
hands, greet the "public." and perhaps wax eloquent. But they are also expected to put forward
some g x m! ideas, a constructive platform, and
promises thev intend to keep. The first year of
student government has been successful, considering the difficulties in getting started. But
uevt vear those difficulties can not be offered as
excuses. It will be a hard year for the officers and
legislators, and the student government will need
strong, capable men and women.

I'nivorsiu undent drivers are lakinn examinations this week which could mean life or death.
Youth takes the wheel and with a determined
air sets out to step down the statistics on traflir
accidents, to cheat death out of biftcr and more
gl.asilv accident tolls.
Present records reveal that more casualties result from automobile accidents when outh is at
the wheel than when the 10 or ."0 ear old is in
the driver's scat. Purxise of the safety
which ojiens on the campus tomorrow
is to reverse these records.
To change the records to help make oun
drivers actuallv the Ixst drivers, to lessen traffic
accidents, the American Automobile Association
campaigns in uniis conducting safctv-drivinversities and colleges throughout the nation.

The University campaign ojx-nwith indoor examinations on road rules and
driving laws, and road examinations to test student drivers for vision and reaction. Members
of the svchology department will direct the
driving law and road rule tests and the Kentucky
State Highwav Patrol will handle the road
tests for vision and reaction.
Not only does the campaign set out to encourage voung drivers to be more careful, efficient,
but it will also select the five best drivers for
awards. Officials Itclieve that constant check-up- s
will tend to give death a HTmanent holiday
from traffic accidents, and will encourage student motorists to slow doxen before they heroine
