Grade-point deficient ASSC candidates Wayne Warga and Ted Schmidt were declared ineligible to run for office last night by the ASSC Elections Board of Protest. Senator-at-Large Mike Dono-hew. said that upon investigation and a clarification of the facts, the Board of Protest has declared both candidates unfit to run for any ASSC position. First Announcement “I want to emphasize that this is the first public announcement of our decision to declare the candidates ineligible and cannot he construed as a reversal of a previous decision,’’ he said. The Board carefully checked all the records and found that Warga, a senior class president, and a candidate, has a cumulative grade shortage and Schmidt, international relations president nominee, has a grade average below 2.5 from last semester. Must Have Article V. Sec 3 of the ASSC Constitution says that in all work completed at SC both candidates must have an average of at least 2.5 and must have achieved a 2.5 last semester. Both Warga and Schmidt fall below this minimum under one of its provisions. Not Influenced “Our decision was not influenced by any letters of protest or voices of criticism,” he said. Only after carefully checking the records, as we did before making our decision, could we arrive at our decision.” When referring to “letters of protest.” Donohew meant the letter of protest writen by Trojan Knight Gary Evans, questioning the qualifications of both Warga and Schmidt. Senator-at-Large Davie Barnes. currently a candidate for senior class president, had previously voiced disapproval of both candidates on the grounds that their running for office was unconstitutional. Warga. dejected over the decision. said that he was sorry to be disqualified but that he understood the Board of Protest's decision and said that it was entirely fair. Questions Barnes “I also unerstand the reason of a politician getting rid of his competition.'’ Warga said, questioning Barnes’ defense of the Constitution during the Board of Protest ruling. On the other hand Schmidt apologized for any embarassment he might have caused the School of International Relations and said “it is a fair decision. Barnes said that as a candidate for senior class president, he was more concerned over the mechanics through which a rival candidate was eliminated than the fact that he was. “I most certainly question the procedure used during the entire Board of Protest ruling.’’ he said. “I am relatively unconcerned in regard to specific personalities who will or will not run as opposed to the working of one of the ASSC Boards assumedly un- der the direct- control of top ASSC officials.’’ he said. The Board of Protest members who voted for ineligibility are Juanita Sakajian. elections commissioner: Mardythe O'Mara. ASSC vice-president; Larry Lif-chy. senator-at-large; and Don-ahew.
