Faculty Hears Discipline Committee Revisions
Recommendations to revise
' the present student discipline com
mittee have been presented to
members of the faculty senate by
ASUO executive council, according
to Stan Williamson, ASUO presi
The recommendations ask that
the discipline committee, now
, composed of seven faculty mem
bers and three student members,
be supplanted by a board of seven
t - Upper-division undergraduates ad
vised by one faculty member.
The recommendations were made,
• the council said, because the next
logical step for the University to
take in matters of disciplining
would be an all-student board.
"Such a committee would, in the
University society, be in the same
tradition as the juries of citizens
that judge their fellows in the
courts of the United States,” ac
cording to the council.
Under the suggested revisions,
the board would be composed of
student members appointed by the
ASUO executive council. The mem
bers would be chosen from petitions
turned in by students.
In order to qualify for the board
petitioners would be required to i
have a recommendation from their
adviser, have completed five terms
of work at the University and have
a cumulative GPA of 2.75, which
must be maintained. Before anyone
could qualify for the board a three
fourths approving vote from the
executive council would be neces
The board could be dissolved by
a majority vote of the faculty sen
ate in event the board did not per
form in a satisfactory manner, ac
cording to the recommendations.
Members of the board would also
be subject to recall from their po
sitions if the executive council
deemed it necessary.
Petitioners for the board would
be required to turn petitions in
during the fifth week of spring
term and there would be three, in
odd-numbered years, and four, in
even-numbered years, sophomores
chosen in order to provide the board
with experienced students.
Other stipulations of the revi
sions would be that no more than
one member of the discipline com
mittee could be at the same time a
member of the executive council,
and, that member would not be al
lowed to vote on any council action
affecting his membership on the
The faculty member, who would
not vote, would be an auditor for
any person who desired more con
sideration of his case. The faculty
member would also have the right
to take the appealed case before
the faculty senate for its deci
sion. Action taken by the senate in
such appealed cases would do one
of three things. The senate could
either approve the committee’s ac
tions, change the verdict in the case
or dissolve the board.
The senate has not yet acted
upon the recommendations.

Master Fiddler
To Play April 18
Isaac Stern, 27-year-old violinist
who is regarded as “one of the
world’s master fiddle players,” will
perform in Eugene next week. His
concert, scheduled for April 18, is
sponsored by the Eugene Civic Mu
sic association. It will be open to
members and students.
Recently returned from an Aus

currently on his sixth national tour
under the direction of Impresario
S. Hurok. Alexander Zakin is his
He plans to perform this season
with Serge Koussevitzky, the Bos
ton Symphany, and 10 other ma
jor orchestras.
In 1937, Stern made his New
York debut. Afterwards the New
York Herald Tribune wrote, “He
should become an artist of excep
tional consequence.”
Seven years later after he played |
in Carnegie hall, the same news
paper called him “one of the
world’s master fiddle players.”
A resident of San Francisco since
he was a year old, Stern is exclu
sively a product of American en
vironment and training. At six, he
began Studying the piano. Two
years later he switched to the vio
lin and made his first public ap
pearance in three years.
He received instruction in San
Francisco from Naoum Blinder and
in New York from Louis Persinger.
Stern is the sixth concert artist
brought to Eugene this season by
the Civic Music association. He
plans to play in 84 other cities on
this tour.
