Residential College Director James Robertson announced
. i / ,yesterday.
Plans now call for the college to eventually take over
all of East Quad.
"The delay occasioned by financial difficulties and the
experience of living closer to main campus in East Quad led
the faculty to reconsider the location which would give the
Residential College the best chance of succeeding," Robert-
son explained.

Of Regens
SGC President Bruce Kahn, in
a letter to the Regents, said yes-
terday that "until you (the Re-
gents)l recognize the rights of
students, students will continue to
make and live by their own rules."
Kahn's letter came in response
to a Regental statement Friday
which said SGC had exceeded Its
jurisdiction by purporting to abol-
ish existing University rules and
regulations. Without Regental ap-
proval, continued the statement,
"such legislation is totally with-
out effect."
"The practical, as opposed to
legal, authority to make rules for
any group must be based on the
consent of the governed," Kahn
argued. He said the Regents have
ignored the changing needs of a
changing community.
"University rules and procedures
have remained a morass of pa-
ternalistic, self-contradictory pre-
cepts better suited to the needs
of the 1920's than the -1960'3," he
"The situation has been toler-
ated even this long only because
these rules are, as is commonly
known, more honored in the
breach than in the observance."
Kahn noted that during the past
five years, the Reed Report,
Kauss er and most recently
endorsed the rights of students to
establish their own rules of coyi-
"Regents must recognize that
students at the University are
fully capable of governing (them-
selves) ," said the SGC President,
"Isn't it about time . . . that stu-
responsibilit fr their own lives?"
In their statement last Friday
the Regents asked SGC to prepare
a written report explaining "the
basis on which unilateral actions
have been taken." The statement
ao requested ethat SGCeconfer
Kahn's letter welcomes the op-
portunity for such discussions, but
warns, "Before basic problems can
be solved on this campus, stu-
dents must be recognized as full,
participating members of the U~ni-.
versity community, with the full
rights and responsibilities of any
other members of the commu-
