During this time, each year, the campus is flooded with posters, speeches and candidates seeking to attain the various class and SGA offices. The elections are conducted by a core of hard-working students. This year's election committee is composed of five students headed by Irving Taylor, who is on the Judiciary Committee of the Student Legislature. Registration for various positions will be Sunday, March 24, from 1-6 p.m. in the SGA office. On Monday, March 25 through Wednesday, March 27, A&T Has 758 FuU-Time Employees Economic Impact Study Slated An find By Cassandra Wynn attempt will be made to out what impact the university community has on the Greensboro area economy. The director of Institutional Research, Dr. Archie Blount, has | !i|!| II DR. ARCHIE BLOUNT announced that he is conducting a survey to get an "estimate of the impact that A&T has on the economy of Greensboro and Guilford County." Figures he released for one part of the study that he has finished showed that the university has 758 full-time employees which means $2,492,000 in retail sales that is being put into the Greensboro economy this current fiscal year. It also means that $1,717,000 in bank deposits will be put in the banks in the Greensboro area each year. Seven hundred fifty eight full-time employees also mean that 23 more retail establishments are maintained in this area. Blount said there are four parts to his study which include: 1. faculty and staff expenditures in the area, 2. i ocal expenditures by the university; university related expenditures (athletics and visitors on campus), and 4. student expenditures in the area. "One of the main elements of the study," said Blount, "is the response from the students." His office is putting questionnaires in each of the dormitories concerning student expenditures. Questionnaires will be available in the Union for off-campus students. They contain questions about what students spent last fall and what will be spent the rest of the school year. Blount said that the questiomiaa- does not include expenditures that arc paid directly to the university. Such things as book supplies which are listed on the questionnaire would mean books and supplies that go beyond the book rental fee. In a similar study that Blount did for another university in 1971, he said the institution could feel the results as far as an increase in financial support from the community. "It should have far-reaching effects on employment," said Blount about the results of his study. He continued, "It might mean more foundation money , better student welfare, and a better relationship with the community." Blount said the people and the community should find out that "our being here has a great impact on the local economy." the hours are from 9 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Elections registration will end Wednesday, March 27, at 12 p.m. Registration Monday through Wednesday will be held in Room 205 in the Student Union. Rules governing the election will be the same as those which governed last year's elections. Each candidate will be informed of these rules governing the election as he registers Campaign speeches will be held April 8 in Harrison Auditorium at 7 p.m. for all offices. The candidates for President of the SGA and Miss A&T will have five minutes for their campaign speeches and all other SGA office candidates will have three minutes for their speeches. All candidates for class offices will have three minutes for their speeches. Also this year rising juniors who have or will have 64 hours at the end of this semester may run for either Vice-President, Secretary, or Treasurer of the SGA. Lloyd Inman, who as vice-president of the SGA is responsible for appointing the elections committee. said"I hope that there will be a large number of students running for offices and that those running will be sincere in their desires to hold these offices. There are many things the SGA and class officers can accomplish in cooperation with the administration." In closing, Inman stated that the SGA next year should attempt to involve as many students as possible in the governing of the student body. Student's Death Shocks A&T Kosie A.
