"Students from more affluent
countries sometimes find us cozy,"
says one Center secretary, "but
students from struggling countries
are amazed that we are strug-

To solve the space problem the
Center has proposed a new $6.5
million building. The project was
on the school's $55 million fund
drive list but the only contribu-

tion was "$165 from one widow,"
says Center director Robelt Kling-
There were no large contribu-
tions for the project, Klinger says,
because donors prefer to give mon-
ey for medical, scientific research
and other programs. "Getting
space for students and faculty is
very difficult."
Klinger estimates that a new
International Center adequate for
present needs would have to con-
tain 66,000 square feet of usable
space. The present Center and fa-
cilities in Pound House offer 7,500
square feet. "Tis inclues part

TeXt of Cutler's Letter to SGC

This letter concerns your re-
cent action pertaining to the
regulation of individual student
conduct. The action expresses a
most worthwhile interest, that
of developing a workable system
of student self-government. It
also raises at least two questions
which are deserving of the most
thorough consideration:
Are students alone interested
in and affected by standards of

nature of the educational pro-
cess and to the manner of ope-
ration of the institution. 'They
are thus central to the delibera-
tions of the President's Com-
mission on Decision Making.
Because of the conc'ern and
responsibility of the Commis-
sion, the deans and faculties,
