GA To Request
Regental Funds
Seeks Financing Equivalent to SGC,
Backs Democrats for City Council
Graduate Assembly last night resolved to ask the Re-
gents for "funds which are at least equivalent to the present
level of funding given to SGC."
The resolutions specified that GA does "not wish to be
given monies which would be taken from the existing levels
of allocations of SGC."
At present, GA receives no money from the Regents. SGC
receives an allocation equivalent to 25 cents for each student,
graduate and undergraduate, at the University. In former
years GA has requested oper- * -
ating funds from SGC.
However this year the request
was opposed by GA members who

Frank Kuenzel, director of the Union, explains that pressure
had been on the Board of Directors of the Union for some time now
to open the entire Union to women. "The boys wanted to bring their!
dates in to play pool," he says.
Kuenzel realizes that times have changed. Formerly no decent1
lady would be caught dead in a pool hall. "The old-time billiard
rooms used to be dens of iniquity," he reflects.
And some students would like to keep women out of the pool hall.
"The billiard parlor should remain the way it is," Joel Welber,
'70, says. "You can go there and relax and not worry what you do
since there aren't any women. I think it's a very nice tradition," he
Furthermore, Welber doesn't have much confidence in the skill
of female hustlers. "I can tell you one thing," he warns, they'll be
changing the felt on the tables every two or three months now.
That's how long it will probably take until someone pokes a pool

"I think the billiard parlor is very nice the way it is now,"
he concludes.
