I/ There are a few politically unconventional students on the Texas A&M campus, and more than a few who don’t like that. About ten members of a student group called SWAMP tried to have a sit-in November 1 on a little piece of campus real estate where none have sat in. The forbidden ground is dedicated to the university’s war heroes. So when SWAMP members moved in to sit down, about a thousand other students, for the greater glory of A&M tradition, stopped them. They sang the Aggie War Hymn, and, more pointedly, “Beat the hell out of SWAMP.” A&M philosophy student and SWAMP member Hugh Stearns says the sit-in was to get students to stop “blindly accepting traditions.” Stearns said that students should be able to assemble on the grass if they please and that the military traditions are not reflective of the student body as a whole, since military students are in the minority now. Stearns says his group is seeking an opinion from the American Civil Liberties Union on whether their right of peaceable assembly was denied.

George Shipley, identified in the Washington Post as a “Democratic pollster” in Texas, was quoted: “The corrosive effect of having both Doggett and Mondale at the top of the ticket put the Democrats further down the ballot right on the firing line. They had no buffer.” v’ Among those mentioned in a New York Times insider story Nov. 8 as candidates to succeed Charles Manatt as the Democrats’ national chairman was Bob Slagle, the Texas party chairman. Also among those mentioned were Paul Kirk, the national party treasurer who is close to Edward Kennedy, and Robert Keefe, a political consultant who is an associate of Robert S.
