The football team lost four games this season and
there have been no suicidal attempts. A conceivable
split in the Greek vote put several independents
into top SGA positions to preside over the 69-70
academic year. Black studentsjoined hands with
whites to crusade for Woods Quad, and campus
"moderates" and f'liberals" united to challenge
the new president for the method he used in
selecting the new Dean of Student Development.
These are accomplishments for Alabama. They
are accomplishments because it is Alabama, a
university where football is usually the center of
campus life, where a united fraternal system
virtually controlled all aspects of society, where
blacks and whites have been traditionally segre-
gated, and where until recently, there has been no
liberal faction worth mentioning and no concep-
tion of student power even in its most humbled
form. What was yesterdayls liberalism is becoming
the new order of the day and student power is
now a term so frequently used it is becoming trite.
Regrettably the words are used with various
connotations. Student power at Alabama is not
activism, rather it implies no taxation without
Student leaders found themselves unprepared for
this new game of confrontation politics as it
developed with this spurt of student power. Black
demands, eviction notices served on the military,
a black girl in the Homecoming Court-all the
events of this year caused the eyes of the student
body to focus on the leaders. For the first time
SGA was noticed. This novel experience caused
a few politicos to sweat so someone suggested
that they do something. Attempts at change were
made with some accomplishments and gratification.
Many sincere efforts, however, were merely met
with token approval by an administration that
rationalized slow change as being responsible
change. At least it was a beginning.

An uninformed populace and a democracy cannot
coexist and, therefore, neither truly exists at the
University of Alabama. There is no doubt, despite
the moderate changes that have taken place this
year, that the majority of students at Alabama
remain insensitive to the issue of change. For the
most part, they are apathetic because they are
uninformed on the issue. Attempts at change have
been met with their total uninvolvement and
lack of concern. Is it not enough, in the state of
Alabama, that a student is a student, a citizen is
a citizen, and it is a well established norm that
one should never be confused with the other? Why
would a student body be content in allowing a
small number of people, possibly unrepresentative
of the populace, to predominately influence the
decisions that govern their lives on campus? Only
the students themselves can answer these questions.
There is but one fact that is certain. A majority
of all students, not just the majority of the few
involved, must be in agreement before any decision
of change can be implemented. There is, there-
fore, a need for more students to become informed
and actively involved in campus affairs. A pro-
fessor on campus may have the solution. Wom-
en will lead the way, he predicts, because they
read fashion magazines that occasionally print
an informative article on relevant and timely
issues. The striking feature of this comment-it
may not be a gross understatement.
