"Some people .1(e left unsatisfied by the
type of films ' being offered in State

The co-op recently completed a series of
open screenings in which 41-45 • persons

Kolokuris said. >
"We are a im ing_for 50-70 members. The
more members, the better quality film we
can afford to offer," Gus Rugazas, co-op
coordinator said. Until recently knowledge
of the co-op was spread almost exclusively
by word of mouth.
Kolokuris said the co-op is not for
everyone. "We don't want the masses. We
want an audience that appreciates films
and has something to offer," he said.
Films will be presented at the Campus

WASHINGTON (AP) Running against a
scandal-plagued Republican party,
Democrats have captured the governorships
of California, New York and seven other
states to strengthen their hand in the 1976
The Democrats won 27 of 35 gubernatorial
races in Tuesday's off-year — election, in
cluding 18 in which they already controlled
The Republicans won six, including Ohio,
where Democratic Gov."Johp J. Gilligan was
beaten by former Gov. James A. Rhodes.
The Democrats also lost South Carolina and
Kansas to the Republicans, who retained the
governorships of lowa, New Hampshire and
Michigan. Another Republican was leading
by a narrow margin in Democratic-controlled
Alaska, and an independent won in Maine.
Democrats went into the election with a 32
to 18 hold on the governorships and emerged
with their domination approaching 36 of the 50
