The purpose of the assembly ig to answer inquiries of many stu dents and faculty members as to the actual workings of the new plan of student government as outlined in the revised ASUO con stitution published in Tuesday’s Emerald. Over 30 letters from stu dents protesting the present revision of the ASUO consti tution chiefly on the grounds of insufficient power invested in the student government . were received by Emeraltf Editor Louise Montag Wed- * nesday. > Examples of these letters ' appear today on the editorial page. Open Discussion Discussion between the audience and members of the committee, which drafted the constitution will follow brief explanations of the most debated provisions of the new • set-up. The system of representation pro posed in the new plan of the Uni versity Congress will be explained by Jack Craig, ASUO vice-presi dent. Craig will show that the present system of class represen tation on the ASUO executive council is inadequate and that representation according to living- . organization and specific groups is a more fair and democratic gov ernmental form. Issues Explained Marguerite Wittwer, Emerald, managing editor, will briefly out line the organization of the Con gress as a legislative body. The* duties of ASUO officers will be defined by Anita Young, senior representative on the executive council.
