Defers Motion To Create Conmiiilee
To Recommend Con-Caon Machinery
After tabling a motion to establish a four-man committee
charged with recommending ground-rules for the establishment of
the upcoming constitutional convention, Student Government Coun-
cil last night took hesitant ,inconclusive initial steps into the area
of academic reform.
"We're not trying to stall on this or kill Con-Con by neglecting
to set-up the needed machinery," explained at-large member Judy
Greenberg, '68, "but we just need more time to do this right."
In Tuesday and Wednesday's elections, students approved the
referendum proposal to hold a constitutional convention to restruc-
ture SGC this academic year by a more than 2-1 margin.
President Bruce Kahn, '68, noted that "SGC has made no de-
