The preparation of medical facilities arranged by SC physicians is one of the most complicated jobs at the convention. Dr. Alexander, a Giannini Foundation fellow, graduated from SC. explained that first aid preparations for a national convention differ from those usually encountered at an arena event. “Both the duration of daily sessions and the quantity of participating individuals is greater,” he said. “Add to this the speed with which media and convention personnel will be working and you have a real problem.” The 14 political scientists from all over the nation were brought to the convention in a program jointly sponsored by the Eagleton Foundation’s Institute of Politics at Rutgers University, New Brunswick, New Jersey and the New York University Citizenship Clearing House. The national convention faculty fellowships enable the college teachers to study the nominating process while holding working assignments with State delegations. Seminars have been held in Founders Hall, a few blocks from the Convention. The professors have lived in Marks Hall and the department of political science has provided office facilities fcr the group. The student drivers, chosen by student body president Wally Karabian, chairman of the volunteer recruiting drive, will handle a fleet of General Motors cars complete with the official convention emblem a “Winking Donkey” on the sides. This unique transportation service, the first ever undertaken by a national political convention, will be responsible for driving delegates to the convention, social functions and meetings.
