RED CROSS DRIVE
Three Bills Go
To Student Body
April 22 Vote Due;
One Measure Vetoed
Three Student Council actions
have been approved by the Admin-
istrative Committee of the Faculty
and will be presented to the stu-
dent body for ratification at as-
sembly April 22. Another action
was vetoed by the committee.
Approval went to a proposed
constitutional change concerning
Article V on faculty veto powers.
Also receiving the faculty nod
were two clarifications of rules for
elections and major honors.
Vetoed was a council recommen-
dation that the president of the
§tudent Council of Religious Ac-
tivities be invited to become a
member of the student governing
"This action was taken by the
commitfefc because throughout our
federal, state and municipal gov-
ernments there is a complete en-
vision of church and state and we
feel that this action would be an
encroachment upon the theory and
for this reason we disapprove,"
stated the faculty committee in
turning down the recommenda-
Article V of the student govern-
ment constitution states that ,,1^Jie
Administrative Committee of the
Faculty shall have veto power over
the recommendations of the coun-
cil. The new measure would give
the student body the right to place
a vetoed proposal before the presi-
dent of the college with a two-
Ihirds majority vote. The recom-
mendation is as follows:
"In the event that the Adminis-
trative Committee -of the -Faculty
vetoes a recommendation of the
Student. Council, the recommenda-
tion will be submitted to the stu-
dent body for a vole. If the rec-
ommendation is passed by a ma-
jority of two-thirds of the votes
cast, the recommendation will be
placed before the president of the
college for consideration."
The election rule clarification
explains the vote majority neces-
sary for winning candidates:
"In an election if no person
wins by a 'majority of one-third of
the total votes cast then the top
three candidates will enter a run-
off. -If no one person then wins a
msyority of one-third of the total
-yot.es cast the two leading candi-
dates will enter the final run-off,
where a simple moaortiy will de-
termine the winner."
A major honor is defined in the

the college student is elected to
that honor by the entire student
body. This election must be car-
ried on through the Student Coun-

As a. reward for keeping their
rooms cleaner, Mrs. Neal Turner,
hostess at Ann Waggoner Hall,
treated the girls in her dorm to a
party April 5.
The entertainment by Mrs. Tur-

test in which the girls competed
with each other in an attempt to

cleaning that it was impossible to
