could be used conveniently for
a large luncheon.
“This is another example
when a student union building

sons and daughters could be
easily accommodated.

Students’ Rights Reasserted
In Assembly Congress Discussion
One of the smallest assembly
audiences of the year Thursday
heard members of the University
congress committee, which framed
the proposed new ASUO consti
tution and presented it to the stu
dent body this week, explain the
shortcomings of the present gov
ernmental set-up and reaffirm the
right of University students to or
ganize and operate without ad
ministratiV' pressure their own
The greatest weakness of the
present system of student govern
ment is the lack of student voice,
asserted Jack Craig, ASUO vice
president, at the assembly at Mc
Arthur court. Believing that the
proposed student congress will
serve to eliminate the ill feeling
between Greeks and Independents
which is so prominent in most
student governmental functions,
Craig outlined the plan as it now
Purpose of the assembly was to
obtain student opinion on the Uni
versity congress and reactions to
the principles as drawn up by
members of the committee which
drafted the constitution, he said.
According to this new system
there would be proportionate rep
resentation from each living or
ganization. As an example, Craig
explained that a Greek house of
from 26 to 50 members would have
one representative to the Congress
whereas some of the larger dormi
tories like Susan Campbell, hous
ing more than 76 students, would !
have two representatives and the
still larger units would have three.
New Organizations
“Provision is made for students
unaffiliated with any campus
living organization in that they
may join Independent groups such
as Orides or Yeomen for the pur
pose of having a voice in the gov
ernment.” Craig also said that new
organizations with a minimum of
26 members could be formed in
order to obtain representation.
Only other requirement governing
these groups would be that they
must meet at least once a month.
As explained by Craig, the Con
gress would be representing al
most equally both the existing
political parties on the campus.
