What is this?
Optical character recognition (OCR) is an automated process that converts a digital image containing numbers and letters into computer-readable numbers and letters. The search engine used on this web site searches OCR-generated text for the word or phrase you are looking for. Please note that OCR is not 100 percent accurate. If the original image is blurry, has extraneous marks, or contains ornate font styles or very small text, the OCR process will produce nonsense characters, extraneous spaces, and other errors, such as those you may see on this page. In addition, the OCR process cannot interpret images and may ignore them or render them as strings of nonsense characters. Despite these drawbacks, OCR remains a powerful tool for making newspaper pages accessible by searching.

ASCC Elections This Friday, March 19 Medical Ethics Workshop Offered The Associated Students elec­ tions are scheduled for this Friday, March 19. If no one candidate receives a majority of the vote, a run-off election will be held the following Monday, March 22. Candidate profiles are present­ ed below. We regret that we were unable to contact all candidates for their picture. PRESIDENT BERNIE SCHILLO Hometown: Deer Lodge Major: Theology Political Science-History “ I believe the present student government is not making full, effective use of the resources, both financial and physical, available for student use on this campus. With student fees, and the student talent available on campus, we should be able to accomplish far more than we have in the past. Students are not getting full value out of their activity fee money. Many activities which have been planned by the ASCC have been beneficial to very few students, at great cost - activities such as these shortchange other students. A long-range planning program to firmly entrench the ASCC’s influence in governmental policy at Carroll College is needed. The ASCC has almost no influence in governing the school. With the student representation the ASCC has, the ASCC should be able to play a major role in academic planning, and all other areas affecting the students.” KIM BABCOCK Hometown: Sheridan, Wyo. Major: Communications “ I am running for the office of President because through my past experience with the ASCC I feel I can continue to help the ASCC achieve its goal - that of an assertive, effective working force for the students of Carroll.” DOUG DIEHL Hometown: Townsend Major: Biology “ I feel I could fulfill what I see as the requirements and de­ mands of the office. I see certain needs of the student body that, in my opinion, aren’t being met- I feel a good rapport with both administration and student body is required, and I think I can establish and maintain a trust with both.” BERNIE MCCARTHY Hometown: Helena Major: History “ Students have not been given the responsibility to actively take a role in their future. This is due in part to a lack of adequate ASCC representation in past administrations and dictation by the administration of Carroll College of student needs and wants. Students must be made aware of their potential as a forceful power group. I will make the students consciously aware of this potential through my repre­ sentation as ASCC president, and by making sure that my adminis­ tration will adhere to this policy; through not allowing the college administration to tell me what the students need or don’t need - want or don’t want. I will, rather, listen to the students themselves and work to give them what they want and need. This can be done through open student forums, more student votes on issues,. These tools will be used as effective means to publicly discuss everything affecting the student body. I will hold an open forum to discuss my platform from 12 noon to 12:45 Tues., March 16, outside the cafeteria.” LOUIE MUDD Hometown: Helena Major: Economics “ I am running because I would like to see a more efficient ASCC. It seems to me that the only way for this to happen is for a concerned pergon to become involved in student government as the ASCC president.” ORGANIZATIONAL V.P. ANDREW E. FREEMAN Hometown: Deer Lodge Major: Social Work “ I feel it is time that this office use- its power to help solve Carroll’s problems. To become more responsive to the needs of the Carroll Community. We have many resources here at Carroll and we do not use them. I plan to use them not abuse them. I feel it’s time that all organizations of the ASCC charter be more responsive to the community and not to themselves. All I can say is I will do my best to try to help solve some of Carroll’s ills. ALLEN KOHLER Hometown: Missoula Major: English “ I see a challenge in this office. Carroll College is growing, and is being confronted with greater needs, socially and otherwise. In office as Organizational V.P. I see myself as a motivating force to bring student problems to an end, where possible, and to bring student ideals to life, where possible. I see myself as the link between students and executive action.” / MICHAEL R. PRENDERGAST Hometown: Butte Major: Social Work “There are many reasons that I am seeking this position. I feel Cont. on page 4 NOTICE F r o m F r .

Carroll Improves Appearances Carroll students were surprised upon their return from Spring Break by the appearance of new carpeting in O’Connell Hall. The new carpeting has given a new “ cushy” feeling to the adminis­ tration building that the old carpet was really never able to give. It has also come to the attention of the Tumbleweed that before Spring Break the Budget and Finance Committee turned down requests to create two full time and one part time teaching positions for next year due to a shortage of funds. A Medical-Ethics Program on “ Care of the Dying” will be included in a Workshop to be held at the Heritage Inn, Great Falls, Montana on May 8, 1976, accord­ ing to John Frankino, Director of the Montana Catholic Confer­ ence. Frankino said, “ This is the third Medical-Ethics Workshop offered by the Conferences’ Medical Moral Commission and it will be co-sponsored by the Montana Hospital Assciation, Mountain States Regional Medi­ cal Program, Mountain States Health Corporation and Montana Medical Education and Founda­ tion. Last years program center­ ed on the general subject of “ Ethical Decisions in Health Care” and emphasized on the ethical implications of brain death and pastoral care in hospitals. This years workshop will cover such topics as: allowing to die - ordinary-extraordinary means and a session which will include a review of the medical questions and an overview of various ethical positions being advanced BY CINDY SCOTT The honors porposal put before the Board of Educational Policy and Practice has been “ per­ manently tabled” according to Jack McLean, author of the proposal. The proposal would have made it possible for a student who chose not to write an honors thesis to graduate with honors if that student fulfilled certain criteria based on G.P.A., character, and service to school and community. The commit­ tee’s main objection to the proposal was the non-academic nature of some of these criteria. Home Classic If you miss seeing those great classic films that always seem to come to other cities, the Attention Home Classic Film Festival will definitely please you. The festival is being held to raise money necessary to meet legal match requirements for two Attention Home operating grants. For $5.00 you will get a series ticket good for six great classics (or $1.50 for any one movie). So, not only will you be greatly entertained for one-third the cost of regular films, but you will also be helping the Attention Home continue providing services to area teenagers (over 150 have stayed in the home in one and a half years). Tues. March 23 - Charlie Chaplin - “ The Gold Rush” Wed. March 31 - Jean Renoir - “ Grand Illusion” Thurs. April 8 - Stanley Kubrick - “ Dr. Strangelove” Thurs. April 15 - Ingmar today in abortion and steriliza­ tion. “The faculty will be outstand­ ing,” Frankino said. “ It will feature Dr. Andre Hellegers, Director of the Joseph and Rose Kennedy Institute for the Study of Human Reproduction and Bio­ ethics and Rev. Richard McCor­ mick, S.J., Professor of Christian Ethics, Kennedy Institute Center for Bioethics - both of George­ town University. Although the workshop will be of special interest to people involv­ ed in Health Care, Ministry and Law, the sessions will be open to the public. Frankino noted, “ We hope that everyone interested in these topics will attend. It is not often that visiting faculty of this calibre come to Montana and thus the workshop will be open to anyone who would like to take advantage of this opportunity.” For further pre-registration in­ formation, contact the Montana Catholic Conference, Bob 404, Helena Montana 59601 or the Montana Hospital Association, 1720 9th Avenue, Helena, Mon­ tana 59601. The general feeling of the committee was that selection for honors should be made solely on an academic basis. McLean is currently drawing up another honors proposal which will be brought before the Student Senate on March 18. The BEPP indicated to McLean its willing­ ness to review another proposal if that proposal were to include solely academic criteria for honors selection. Student representatives on the BEPP are Mark Nicholson, Joan Balcomb, Ken Campros and Bob Cure. Film Festival Bergman - “ The Magician” Wed. April 21 - The Marx Bros. - “ Horsefeathers” Thurs.
