you answered yes to the first question
don't vote for us. We have no experience
in the UA or GA or'-whatever it is called,
but do we need to? We make no secret
about it - we plan to be apathetic and
ineffective. We won't be alone - whoever
typed up this form put in- the sentence "I
attest that the above activity record is cor-
rect." under the picture; not the activity
record. Why are we doing this? If we hate
student government what are we doing on
the ballot? Are we nuts? In a word, yes.
We want to represent the majority at MIT,

Students at MIT feel that they are not be-
 ing given the respect they deserve as intel-
ligent, responsible individuals. TO regain
our legitimate role in Institute affairs, we
must show the administration that we are
responsible. To this end, we will follow
two guiding principles:
    * Make the UA, without structural
changes, work for the students
    * Establish a direct and constructive
voice with the administration and faculty-
ln the past the focus of student gomern-
ment has been to define and redefine its
o2vrn structure rather than to focus on the
needs of the students. Having talked to
many students, we found that the follow-
ing issues - among others - were most
often raised:
   *Cutbacks in the student loan program
    * Discontinuation of need-blind admis-
     *Lack of -social activities which bring
the camnpus together
    * Mandatory commons
We can both serve the needs of the stu-
dents and establish better relations with
the administration and faculty by accom-
plishing concrete tasks. We plan to pre-
sent the students' concerns on financ ial
alid to both the administration and the fed-
eral government, to bolster the new Social
Council, and to revitalize the Student
Comnmittee on Educational Policy (SCEP)
in order to maintain necessary student
feedback to the faculty. We will work
closely on the remodeling of the Student
Center and Walker Memorial being
planned by the Dean's office. To ensure a
student voice on campus, we need your
support now and in the future. We thank
you for your consideration and look for-
ward to serving-you.

           Fencers tie for 6th
           "at IFA tournament
                    lBy Martin D~ickeau
           NEW YORK -A strong perfor-
           mance by the foil team overcame
           a poor sabre showing and led the
           men's fencing team to a thiree-
           way tie for sixth'place at the In-
           tercollegiate Fencing Association
           Championships last weekend..
              MIT captain Russell Holtz '85,
           two-time defending foil champi-
           on, overcame ai disqualification
           of his type of foil handle to place
           third in the individual competi-
           tion in the weapon.
              Holtz' finish qualifies him for
           the NCAA championships later
           this month.
              Mitch Messer '85 won nine of
           his 11 bouts, pacing the three-
           man foil team to a third-place
           finish, one bout behind first-place
           Yale.- Messer finished second in
           his pool- four touches behind
           Yale's Tim Mueller - and ad-
           vanced to the semifinals, where
           he placed 13th.
              John §Iieffield '86 and Andy
           Chang '87 combined in the TIC"
           foil slot for six %victories.
              tpee fencer Alan Williams '85
           will join Holtz at the nationals.
           Williamns won seven of his I11 r~eg-
           ular bouts to advance to the
           semifinals and finished lath over-
           all among the 33 competitors.
              Dan Lord '85 won' four bouts
           in the 'C" slot, and Rex Ko-
           chanski '85 and Jeff Arenberg '86
           combined 'for three in the "/B"
           competition, -as MIT finished in a
           tie for eighth place with Colum-
           bia University. -
              Yale won the 6pee title with 23
           victories, one ahead of Prince-
              The, sabre temn proved to be
           the -weakest of the- three weapon
           squads, finishing 10th of 12 with
           only nine victories. Darryl Toney
           '87 led the squad with 4 victories.
           "C" fencer Eric Shih '87 had
           three, and Saechin Kim '86 man-
           aged but two.
              Host New York University -won
           the sabre title with 30 victories,
           followed by Columbia and the
           University -of Pennsylvania with
           29 each.
              The foil competition was
           marred when the Cornell head
           coach interrupted a bout between
           Holtz and Cornell "4A" foilist
           Clifford Rawn to protest that the
           grip Holtz was using, a "Martin-
           gale," was illegal. Rawn was los-
           ing, 3-2, at the time.
               Similar protests against H~oltz'
            weapon had been lodged at other
            competitions, but thle rulings had
