LOSES .SENATOR . INSIGHT BY MICHAEL A. WINTERS

It is evident by the premature reply of a letter to the editor that appeared in' the form of an 'article in the AVION last week, that one of our student. representatives to the SGA Senate lacks any real insight into the responsibilities of his position, and to the makeup of a segment of the student body called the Maintenance Technology Division.

.--

--

asking too much? I£ it is why did they ask to be our "voice" in the first place 1t would benefit all concerned if the representatives allignea themselves with an understanding Of the students they are alledgedly rePrcsenting, instead of giving us Out excuses Of bureaucracy £or being to say anything on our behalf. The Oath taken by senators when in their offices goes as £01lowS:

I "I, nly swear (or affirm) that Students in the A & P I will faithfully execute the Office of Division of ER are by Government their own definition, the Student "Technicians, Mechanics, Association of Embry Ridand ~ r a d not ~ ad~mi,,-~ ~ dle ~ Aeronautical , ~ Universiistrators. ~t election ty, and will to the best time, the now present memof my ability fulfill the duties required of mY ofbers to the Sena-te of the fie." SGA came before this stu********** dent body and ASKED it to afford them the privilege of representing us before the executive committee of the SGA. In doing so, they took on the responsibility of airing before the SGA all suggestions and grievances that might arise from the student body in this division. With it went the responsibility of seeing that all clerical and administrative requirements set forth by STARTERS - GENERATORS the SGA for such suggestions be met.

According to an article that appeared last Friday in the AVION it is the contention of one of our elected representatives that if approached by a handful1 of students with a suggestion or grievance, that he is held by. some mystical, overpowering force to complete inaction on his part unless one of the students goes on record and files a formal resolution to the SGA first. In all practicallity and understanding of his £ellow students, this is ludicrous even to suggest for two reasons: the first being that most A&P studencs don't know what a resolution even looks like, and second (and most important of all) it shows complete lack of initiative on the student's behalf by the senator. Why can't a senator verbally air a suggestion or grievance on the senate floor on behalf of a student or group of students? Is this

Wally Shauns conducted an interesting and informative tour around the campus, after which Mrs. Jack Hunt welcomed the girls to Embry-Riddle and encouraged us to be active in school activities. Refreshments were served during the social hour which followed a drawing for a wig, courtesy of Mister Roberts. Judy Kitchen was the holder of the lucky ticket.

Jets Beagles F Troop Hot N u t s Mod Squad Chargers

In college football, another team dropped from the undefeated ranks. Auburn was upset by LSU, 17-9. Tennessee dld what was expected of them: they clobbered Florida, 38-7, much to the chagrin of our editpr, who lost his second six pack of Michelob to this prognosticator. Stanford had a hard time putting down the charges of uCLA: but finally won, 9-7. What a game that must have been. It looks as though Stanford will be in the Rose Bowl, facing either Ohio State or an outside shot, Notre Dame. In any case, either team would prove to be a wellmatched opponent for Stanford.

BY DON NICHOLS Intramural football again had some hard hitting and good games last weekend. The Beagles, after a couple of weeks rest, did the duty on the Mod Squad, 41-7. The Jets won due to a forfeit by the Chargers, while F' Troop dropped from the undefeated ranks at the hands of the Hot Nuts, 14-12. The F' Troop -Hot Nuts game was the best gaem played so far this season. The Hot Nuts scored the winning TD with only a few minutes remaining in the second half. F' Troop was threatening to score when the Hot Nuts came up with a key interception and ran out the clock. So, with only a few weeks remaining to play, the big game will be between the Beaqles and the Jets.

.

In Inter-fraternity games, Alpha Eta Rho dropped a close one to Delta Chi, 20-18. This was definitely a clean, hard-played game. Much credit is due both teams for outstanding sportsmanship. Sigma Phi Delta finally got it together to roll over Sigma Chi Delta, 20-12. There was a question raised by Gary Spangler concerning the length of time allowed for the second half. What Gary Spangler does not understand is that the interfraternity teams play under different rules than do the intramural teams. These rules in the interfraternity games are subject to change each week at the discretion of some of the players. I am not permitted to referee these games as I have been told that I am prejudiced. So, Gary, I hop@ this clears up that question for you. ~ l lgames are cancelled for this week and will be played November 22nd.

MOUSE ENROLLMENT BY RON DEVOY ~t last count 521 mice have been enrolled at various colleges and research institutions throughout the nation. The enrollment was the culmination of a two week drive for the American Cancer Society, sponsored by Alpha Eta Rho at EmbryRiddle. "Send a mouse to college" buttons and Peter Max posters were sold in the student center. For each thirty-four cents

collected, a cancer research mouse was added to the growing list of college freshmen around the country. ~ o t hmyself, and the American Cancer Society wish to thank the students of Embry-Riddle and the members of Delta Chi, and Sigma Phi Delta for the enthusiasm that they showed for the cancer drive. In fact, Hank Toohey 05 Delta Chi showed so mc:h entinusiasm that he is presently enroute to U.C.L.A. with 27 mice.

"MERRIMAC" Ever since Embry-Riddle began Offering curriculums in the early 1960's* and faculty members have been voicing the need for more and backing 'lass projects which the students their accumulated classroom knowledge in a and worthwhile endeavor. The various technological departments suggested various projects of this but the Of "lack Of funds" has ly been the Of each. This is true in the Engineering Department where very few ideas have ever gotten off of the drawing board. There have been some projects, especially in the ALP division, which have been completed, such as the first Stearman. which flew in 1968, and Mr. Bolton's turbine car, but there are many others which have fallen by the wayside in favor of installation of a new administrator or purchase of new equipment. some of these delayed or abandoned projects include the completion of the second Stearman, the restoring of the A-26, and the final steps towards completion of the wind tunnel.

There is however, a project in the chute that will prove once again that Embry-Riddle is not just a hypothetical institution. This project goes under the name of uMerrimac~ and is the work of the E M U Engineering Department. TheflMerrimac"isan aircushion vehicle which is nearing completion in the wind tunnel building under the direction of Mr. LoomThe design is basically of English origin and was i,,tended as a home-built for hobbyists, Embry-Riddle's re-designed version is 16 feet long and gets its power from two surplus drone engines, which were scavenged along with most of the other components in order to keep costs down. When the vehicle in two or three weeks, you can bet that there will be quite a stir at the Development Office as press releases are quickly distrubuted. The "Merrimac' marks a real milestone for EmbiyRiddle in that it is one of the only projects ever attempted by the Engineering Department that has been completed. Needless to say the $400.00 cost has the administration living on cloud nine as they dream of the great publicity profit which we will reap from this colorfull project. Hopefully, the "Merrimac" is just the first in

LITERARY BOOKLET Contributions are now being accepted to Riddle's first literary booklet, to be published some time next trimester. Talented students are w e b come to submit photography and drawings and any form of literary work: short stories, poetry, and prose ONLY students !nay submit works. The literary booklet will be a compilation of the best literary and art works of Embry-Riddle students and will be available on campus soTe time next spring. Please type or print clearly each written entry and include your name and box number on each page. Contributions may be submitted to Mr. Campbell's office. Deadlines will be announced at a later date. *

a "lack of announcement brought the project to a grinding halt. Since then the $20,000 worth of buildings, equipment and comcomponents already pleted have laid dormant in the little white building near the airport. The tunnel still needs about $12,000 worth of instrumentation before it can be of any ~ractical value to the school. Expensive? yes! But the tunnel has , the potertial to earn money for the school through research grants, to earn the school a lot of publicity, and to offer the most practical means of demonstrating the theories 1 of Aerodynamics to students in all curriculums. However, the people in the big TAN building on Midway Ave. have decided that the project is not feasible so ;we must do without.

the wind tunnel will run. Maybe this is only the beginning of a new era of aviation education here at Riddle, an era when Skudents will finally get the chance to apply their accumulated classroom knowledge to practical applications and at the same time construct lasting projects for the benefit of students of the future.
