Congressmen voted Monday
night to recommend to the Stu-
dent Center Advisory Committee
that dress on Saturday be more
informal with women being al-
lowed to wear slacks in the SUB.
Introducing the subject Presi-
dent Charles Chambles said that
girls had talked to him about the
inconvenience of having to dress
in school clothes for meals in the
cafeteria on Saturdays.
IT WAS MENTIONED that
Saturday is the biggest day for
visitors and women in slacks
would not present a true view of
the university as it normally is
but in passing the recommenda-
tion Congress agreed that since
Saturday is not a normal func-
tioning day of the university at-
tire could be more casual.
President Chambles announced
recommendations for student ap-
pointees to university faculty and
